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.

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!

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.

Praline French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
The praline syrup really made this recipe. It was so good. And so easy to make. Will try it again--for waffles. Yummy

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.

Lemon Meringue Pie III

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
The best!! The filling set up beautifully-perfect texture, not all all runny or too stiff. Plenty of meringue, too. I did cut down the sugar by 1/4 cup because we like a tart lemon pie and it was perfect.

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
I made this in a 9x5 loaf pan (recipe says 8x4)and it came out perfectly. Lovely texture and rich flavor. Not as buttery as my usual recipe but perfect for the strawberry trifle I used it for. Definite keeper. Thanks for sharing.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Excellent recipe--but I made some changes based on personal preference. Only used about 1/4 c. sugar, increased macaroni to 3 cups (amount of dressing was still sufficient). I think the recipe as written is too wet for our taste--but, again, this is all personal preference. Used red onion for extra color and that worked great. I eye-balled the onion, pepper and celery--enough to make it pretty, but my kids don't like a lot of "stuff" in their macaroni salad. anyway---got rave reviews at a Memorial Day picnic--so it's a keeper. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

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.

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.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Perfect! Excellent texture and peanutty flavor. I used smooth peanut butter (and a little more than recipe calls for). Also, since I had salted butter on hand, I simply omitted the salt. Added a bag of chocolate chips--yummy. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It's a keeper.

Grandma's Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
When I couldn't find my favorite chocolate pudding recipe and turned here for help. I thought I was in luck by the many positive reviews, but was disappointed. The mixture did not thicken and lacked "body" and taste.I don't think the combination of evaporated milk and water made it creamy enough. Thankfully, I have since found my favorite recipe again.

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
Wish I had read the comments before making this. As written the dough is way too wet and soft. Definitely needed to add more flour. If you want a crispier crust at higher temp and lower the rack,

Barbequed Ribs

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
10 stars. These are amazing, incredible, delicious and messy to eat. The perfect ribs--use baby back or St. Louis style ribs. Thanks for sharing this recipe

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
This has been my favorite yellow cake recipe since I found it. But, today I used cake flour instead of all purpose. WOW!! It raised more than usual and turned out lighter and fluffier than ever. Still the best. And no, it does not taste like cornbread at all. My 15 year old and I make this cake so much, I had to post again. This is the ONLY yellow cake recipe we use. It's sweet, flavorful, light and fluffy. Perfect basic cake for anything. As I posted in an earlier review--thoroughly creaming the butter/shortening (I use 50/50) and sugar is essential to get the right texture in the end. YUMMY!!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
The orange juice added nice flavor combination but was a bit over-powering. Next time, I will take the suggestion of using 1/2c. juice and 1/2c. water.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
I made small loaves and had some batter left over and made muffins. Now my kids are begging for more. They love the "lids."

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.
