Easy Lemon-Blueberry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
I was a little nervous using lemon jello but to my surprise it turned out PERFECT! The taste was very good with only a subtle hint of lemon and plenty of blueberry flavor! The consistency was perfect too and it set up nicely...not runny at all. This is definitely a keeper and I didn't change a thing. Thanks for the recipe!

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Loved this recipe! This recipe made 4 mini loaves and 1 regular size loaf for me. The only thing I did different was add 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar and it turned out GREAT! It was sweet, moist and delicious... and everyone ate it up! UPDATE: I added a struessel topping before baking and it made it even more delicious! (1/2 cup flour, 1/2 oat meal, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 6 tbsp. butter. Mix all together and sprinkle on top of bread batter before baking).

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
I'm not much of a banana lover but this cake was wonderful! I followed the recipe to the T and it turned out GREAT! Very moist and held together nicely. I baked it in a bundt pan and I did pour a little powdered sugar glaze over the top and added some chopped walnuts on top. It presented nicely & tasted fabulous! This recipe is definitely a keeper!!! Thanks! (see pic I uploaded of this cake) ***Update- I'm still making this fabulous cake but just wanted to share that I made it with 2/3 cup strong coffee in place of the buttermilk (only because I had no milk, cream or anything in the house). It turned out wonderful & was a little lighter in texture. Very good! Love this recipe!

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
I was a bit skeptical about making these cookies because of all the sugar and no flour. But I was wrong! These cookies were delicious! The only change I made was 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. I also used Jif peanut butter (1/2 crunchy & 1/2 creamy). They tasted amazing, reminded me of the big yummy peanut butter cookies we got at school. The only complaint I have is that this recipe doesn't make enough for my large family (It made about 2 dozen big cookies for me). I had to make a second batch and the 2nd time I added peanut butter chips and they turned out wonderful. This is a great recipe. Definitely a keeper, one that I will make often! Thanks!

Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Love this recipe! The cookies came out thin and chewy with a subtle lemony flavor. I followed the basic recipe with only a few exceptions. I added 1 teaspoon of lemon zest & a squeeze from 1/2 a lemon to the batter. I omitted rolling them in sugar before baking. After the cookies baked & cooled I frosted them with powdered sugar frosting. [1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tsp. lemon extract, 1 drop of red food coloring(to make pink), & 1 tblsp. milk. These cookies would be delicious even without the frosting and just rolled in sugar like the recipe states. They had the pleasant taste of lemonade! Great for a tea party! Thanks...this one is a keeper!

Pumpkin Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This cake was so easy to make and it turned out fabulous! Very moist with a smooth pumpkin pie/spice cake flavor. The cake is not lite & fluffy...it's a little heavy but very good. I drizzled cream cheese glaze over the warm cake and it enhanced the flavors even more. Tasted a lot like a pumpkin roll without all the fuss. Definitely a keeper! I think I will add fresh cranberries to the batter & sprinkle the baked top of cake with chopped pecans when I make this for Christmas just to make it a little more special. [basic cream cheese glaze- 4-oz. cream cheese-softened, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon butter-softened, 1 tsp vanilla extract, mix till there are no lumps and add enough milk to make it a glaze constancy about 2 Tblsp.]

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
Excellent pie! I made it for our Thanksgiving dinner and someone else brought a Baker's Square pie and mine was gone in minutes and nobody touched the professionally made pie. I didn't add any raisins or nuts just extra apples. I used granny smith and Macintosh apples. I also chopped up a handful of pecans to mix into the crumb topping. When the pie came out of the oven I drizzled just a little caramel syrup (ice cream topping) over the crumb topping. The pie was out of this world! I will never use another apple pie recipe again...this one is a keeper!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
I decided to give this recipe a whirl. I was a little afraid because I've never made pecan pie without corn syrup before and pecan pie is my favorite! Well let me tell you I will NEVER go back to corn syrup pies again. This recipe was absolutely amazing!!! I made it yesterday for our Thanksgiving dinner. I couldn't wait till Thursday so I sliced a small piece to taste and it was sooo delicious. Not sickening sweet, just sweet enough with a nice buttery flavor as well. I did add a handful more pecans because I love them so much and placed some whole ones on top. But other than that I didn't change a thing. This is now my new pecan pie recipe! Thank you so much! I will probably have to make another one because I don't think this one will last till Thursday's dinner. lol.

Spring Sweet Pea Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
Wonderful, easy, fresh salad! The only change I made was I used crumbled cooked bacon instead of the ham cause that's what I had on hand. Kids loved it, an everyone had seconds. I think I'll add chopped/shredded cooked chicken next time to make it a complete meal! Thanks for this delicious salad recipe.

Asparagus, Shallot and Spinach Torte

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Love this recipe! I added a jar of artichoke hearts and don't forget the 1/2 cup chopped shallot's (not listed in the recipe). I also minced up some garlic and mixed it with 1 tblsp. of olive oil and added it to the wheat crust to give it a little flavor. The recipe turned out great, tasted delicious and it's healthy too!

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
We like to call these "no bake cookies" Star Crunches. I used creamy peanut butter & they turned out great. Next time I'll try it with the crunchy to add a little more crunch. Great recipe they turned out great & the best part, it was so easy & fast!

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly and the cookies came out perfectly! Make sure when you roll them into balls they don't exeed 1" in size, cause anything bigger and they will crumble when you try to coat them in powdered sugar. Delicious, addicting, melt in your mouth little treats!

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Wonderful melt in your mouth cookies with a rich buttery taste! In the first batch I made I added 1 tsp. of vanilla extract & in the 2nd batch I added 1 tsp. almond extract. They were both incredibley good. I decided to roll them out & use cookie cutters to cut out holiday shapes. The dough rolled nicely & I sprinkled colored sugar on top. This recipe is a keeper! My 5 year old summed up these cookies in one word, "incredible!"

Citrus Sunshine Punch

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2007
Love this punch! I did however substitute a few ingredients because I wanted the punch to be green in color. So I used white grape juice instead of orange juice & lime sherbert instead of the orange. It was delicious and a new favorite! Thanks!
