Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
The texture and flavor of this recipe are far superior to the recipes that call for butter or margarine. It moist but not oily like I find those recipes to be. Excellent banana flavor. Thanks for sharing.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
Excellent muffin--even without the streusel topping. But I cannot figure out how this make 8 jumbo muffins. I barely get 8 regular size muffins from one batch.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
I used fresh lemon zest instead of lemon extract. We like the delicate lemon flavor. Not too strong, but definitely lemony.

Spinach with a Twist

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
The canned tomatoes did not complement the spinach at all. Maybe fresh veggies would have been better. This was not good at all.

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Delicious!! I was surprised that a non-pectin jam would thicken, but it did-perfectly. Full of strawberry flavor-not too sweet. Many recipes call for 2 cups of fruit, so I wonder if those reviewers who say this is too sweet were sure to use 2 POUNDS of berries. A keeper of a recipe.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Have been using Brooke's Bombshell Brownies, but found the top "crust" too thick and hard. So gave these a try...EXCELLENT!! Just the right amount of sweetness, but I did increase the cocoa to 2/3 cup and next time I will decrease the flour a little. This is a definite keeper recipes.

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
very nice flavor. I used my own whipped cream recipe. But, too much milk, it puddles on the bottom. I will make again, but will reduce the amount of whole milk to 1 cup instead of two.

Pumpkin Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I panicked when I couldn't find my pumpkin cheesecake recipe for Thanksgiving. Gave this one a try and was very pleased. Made it in a 9 in springform, using graham cracker crust instead of pastry shells. Yummy!

Brussels Sprouts with Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
The apples added nothing to this recipe-they were totally overpowered by the brussel sprouts. I was expected a little sweetness or apple flavor to enhance the brussel sprouts but nothing.

Asian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
Nothing really special. Dressing was ok--but the soy sauce just didn't taste right in it. Won't make again.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
Delicious. My Italian family loved it. For the reviewer who said the meatballs were hard and dry--did you use fresh breadcrumbs as stated in recipe. You CANNOT substitute dry, canned breadcrumbs. The sauce was very good ( I used about 1/2 the salt). Next time I think I'll add some sweet Italian sausage for extra flavor. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
I have made these brownies several times and really liked them, but the top was always too crusty. So I cut the sugar down to 2 cups--perfect. For those who find the original recipe too sweet and/or too chocolately this does the trick. Still chewy and chocolately--just right

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
This recipe is perfect as written. I have made it many times, but this last time I decided to take other reviewers' recommendation to substitute 1/2 the butter with shortening. This is a mistake-it throws off the flavor and texture. Will stick with original recipe from now on.

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Should have sauted the onion first. Didn't care for the taste of it going in casserole raw. The potato chips really didn't anything. My daughter thought they were a odd combo with the noodles. will omit them next time

Parsleyed Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
I did not have dried minced onion. So, I used a few tablespoons chopped fresh onion which I sauted in the butter to soften before adding the rest of the ingredients. Turned out delicious. I think 1/4 cup dried minced onion would have been too strong.
