Super-Hero Burger

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Burgers are excellent like this, although I hadn't tried it with the peppers before. Awesome. =) I like to add a touch of garlic powder to the meat mixture, too.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
I don't like tea, but my husband said this was really good. I used Lipton's tea with a hint of peach, then added peaches while the tea was steeping. I also took another reviewer's idea of making tea cubes because hubby complains about watery tea caused by ice cubes. He loved them! Thanks!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
This is my new favorite white bread recipe. I halved the recipe and used a little less than half the sugar and got super results. Next time I make cinnamon rolls I'll use all the sugar it calls for. Thanks so much for this!

Dreamy Nighttime Drink

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
I made some caramel sauce yesterday that was really good, so I added a half teaspoon of that, and I also added about half a teaspoon of spiced rum. I split this between my husband and me, and we both really loved it. Thanks very much, Essiemay.

Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Yummy! Next time I'll try it with some 'nilla extract instead of orange liquer, and I'll add a touch more sugar to lessen the taste of the cream cheese. I'm thinking these might be good with a touch of kahlua added in in place of the orange liquer. I garnished with some chocolate icing made from the One Minute Chocolate Icing recipe found on this site.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Tasty! A couple of quick things: I don't have a mini muffin pan, so I used a regular one and made twelve of these. They had to cook the full twenty minutes. Also, I thought I'd make things easier on myself and use paper muffin liners--big mistake, the muffins stick to the liners like crazy! So I wound up leaving the muffins in the liners and only putting the butter and cinnamon-sugar combo on the tops (a pastry brush came in handy for this). The only other change I made was to reduce the nutmeg to 1/4 teaspoon, as a personal preference. They were excellent, thanks!

Parmesan Knots

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Wow! The flavor of the topping is delicate, which makes it an awesome choice to go alongside your favorite Italian dishes. I'd give these more stars if I could. Thanks!

Peanut Butter Pie XII

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
Okay, so I made a few alterations. I used a graham cracker crust (premade). I also had no idea what Neufchatel cheese was (and still don't!), so I used cream cheese and cut that back to 3 oz. I probably used more than 1/2 C. peanut butter (so I like peanut butter--sue me!) and used only 1/4 C. milk, but I used whole milk because it's what I keep on hand. I froze the pie about 3 hours--that seems about right, because this stuff is to die for! Don't be so concerned with the high calorie count--halve everything, in fact. This pie is very rich, so you'll probably get sixteen pieces out of this rather than the eight the recipe says you'll get.

Mint Ice Cubes

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
These were neat. Hubby gave me that "Chick, you crazy?" look when I was making them, but he loved them in his lemonade! Score one for Skuba. :) Thanks!

Sourdough Starter

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I rated this five stars, but it was my first sourdough starter, so I really have nothing to compare it to. I like the way my bread turned out, but it tasted more like plain white bread and less like sourdough--I'm not sure if that's because I only had my starter for two weeks when I made the bread, or if the starter isn't very good. Next time I do it I'll wait longer and see what happens. Thanks!

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
These are some of the ugliest cookies you can make, but they sure do disappear fast. :)

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
My father-in-law HATES cake, but he devours these every time I make them. My husband always complains about their being too sweet, but that's only because he eats them before they have a chance to cool. I usually make these in the evening and start eating them the next day. (Sometimes even for breakfast, oh no!) I tried hubby's method of eating them while still warm, and I could see his point--they are WAY too sweet when still warm. I don't know how that works, I just know it's true. That's okay; the anticipation of waiting for them just makes them that much sweeter--figuratively speaking, of course. :) I don't keep chocolate bark on hand, so I always wind up using chocolate morsels. I wonder if that's why my cake balls always have a little puddle of chocolate they sit in? I keep hoping I can make them perfectly round like some of the other submitters' photos show, but my chocolate can't defy gravity like their super secret formulas apparently can. Oh well, they are still deeeeeeeee-lish! This last time I made them I used a yellow cake mix, divided the batter, and dyed one cake green and the other pink just to make them more fun for my kids to eat. Thanks, Allison!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
Can I give this more stars? It's perfect as written! The second time I made it I added a half cup of unsweetened cocoa and it was amazingly delicious. So easy and quick to prepare. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool long enough to not burn your tongue when you eat it. And as the recipe contributor said, it's even better on Day 2. I gave a ton of these out as gifts on Thanksgiving and everyone raved and raved about how good it was. Perfection. Thanks so much. I will be using this year after year.

Banoffee Pavlova

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
I'm sorry; I can't talk right now. I'm still dreaming about how delicious and beautiful this was . . . in all seriousness, though, this was amazing--everyone loved it. I made my own whipped cream because I hate Cool Whip, and I used milk chocolate because I prefer it. I also couldn't find superfine sugar, so I used regular granulated. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly with no problems. Wonderful! Thank you!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
I prefer a chewier cookie myself, but it's still a terrific recipe and the cookies ARE soft. I'll continue to use this recipe and maybe tweak it until it suits my personal preferences. I didn't make any changes for the first round. I even added all the flour the recipe called for, even though I was worried that it couldn't possibly hold anymore. For the reviewer who wanted to know whether she should add the mix or the prepared pudding: the recipe actually states that you should blend in the pudding MIX, not prepared pudding. Maybe that was added later for clarification, but I had no trouble with the recipe as-is. Many thanks; it's a keeper!
