Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2005
I made this pie using fresh rhubarb and Splenda sugar (used only 1 cup of splenda) and it turned out GREAT!!! I brushed the pie crust with egg and sprinkled lightly with white sugar and it looked as pretty as it tasted! This is definately a keeper!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
I have been making this for years but never bothered to measure anything. I am so glad to see someone took the time to measure & share the recipe. It's a great way to use up all your stale bread! I do everything the same only I use extra bread and make it in a 9x13" pan (I have a large family). Over the years I have played around with this & sometimes I've added pecans & apples, fresh blueberries, or cran-raisins. I've even swirled strawberry preserves through it. I often bake it with a simple crumb topping on it too. But my kids favorite way to eat it is to add maple syrup over it & they have it for breakfast. Just pour over a generous amount of your favorite maple syrup over the bread pudding right when it comes out of the pan. Let it sit for a few minutes so it soaks down into the bread. YUM! It tastes amazing! My thanks to Ellen for sharing this recipe that I've enjoyed for years with everyone!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
Rich & creamy, my family loved these potatoes! I added sour cream and left out the sesame seeds. I also used minced garlic in a jar and it came out terrific! This is a keeper in our home. Thanks.

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).

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
This was easy to make and tasted good! I doubled the recipe because I have a large family & added sauteed garlic to the gravy for added flavor. It still needed a little extra something so I added 1 chicken bouillon cube and thinned the gravy out with another cup of milk. I used a total of 2-lbs. sausage, 5 cups of milk, 4 cloves of garlic, 1 bouillon cube and only pepper to taste. Don't need the added salt if you use the bouillon. My suggestion, make your flour, butter roue first letting the flour cook for a few minutes before you add the milk (this gets rid of the flour taste)... then proceed to make the gravy, adding the milk slowly. When gravy is done, add the sausage back to the gravy and let simmer for 10-15 minutes till all the flavors meld. I made this with [Fluffy Biscuit] recipe found on here! Sausage Biscuits-n-Gravy is a wonderful comfort food for the whole family! Thanks!

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!

Reese's® Frozen Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2002
If you like Reece's peanut butter cups you'll love this pie! It was easy to make and super delicious! I suggest using a deep dish 9" ready made crumb crust or make your own deep dish pie crumb crust. The filling was spilling over the sides a bit that's why a deep dish would have worked better. Make sure you leave enough time for it to freeze up...This is a great pie to make the day before and let it freeze overnight. Kids & adults alike will love this pie!!! Enjoy!

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
These biscuits were amazing! They fluffed up nicely for me and they tasted so good. I made these biscuits to go along with the [Super Sausage Gravy] recipe found on here. Sausage Biscuits-n-Gravy is a great comfort food and these biscuits fit the bill!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
This was such a wonderful, easy stuffing recipe that I made for Thanksgiving. It saved space in my oven for other specialty dishes and the flavor came & moistness came out perfect in the slow cooker! This is now my new way of making great stuffing! Thanks!

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.

Sausage Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2002
Every Christmas brunch I make a sausage cheese strata...but this year I decided to try this recipe instead of using my usual one with all that bread. It was DELICIOUS!!! My family said it was the BEST I've ever made (and I have 8 children)! It was so easy to prepare too! This is gonna become my traditional Christmas brunch from now on...and because it was so easy...I think I'll make it for other occassions too!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I've made this recipe like 5 times already and my whole family LOVES it!!! I've tried a lot of different recipes over the years and this one takes the cake!!! I usually end up doubling the recipe and making a bunch of mini loaves to give to friends & family. I usually make the recipe as is except I add 1 tsp. cinnamon cause I like the flavor. I've also added different things to the batter like; blueberries, raisins, chocolate chips.... they all taste great! This is my permanent recipe for banana bread from now on! Thanks Rose!

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
Made this recipe twice so far and the first time I followed the recipe exactly and the salad was delish! The second time I changed a few things because of personal preference. I added minced garlic cause we love garlic, freshly squeezed juice from 1 lemon instead of the vinegar, 1 can of black beans, 1 can of black olives, 1 finely chopped jalapeno for a little heat and fresh chopped cilantro! It gave it a more southwestern flare and we liked it even better. I served it with tortilla chips! Will definitely add this salad to my favorites! Thanks for the recipe! *Note: make sure you use a good extra virgin olive oil for the best flavor.

Dad's Simple Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This is pretty good for a quick marinade using ingredients that most of us probably have on hand. The only changes I made was to use olive oil instead of vegatable oil. Also added fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon. This is a good base for a marinade... but add some spices for a little bolder flavor like basil, oregano, salt & pepper, and a little cumin! Perfection!

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!

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.]

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
YUM! Loved this recipe cause it's so easy and the almonds are a nice change to the pine nuts which are hard to find & expensive in my small town. The second time I made it I added 1/2 tsp. cumin instead of nutmeg & the squeeze of one fresh lemon! I liked it even more this way!!!! (Note- be sure to use a good extra virgin olive oil for a better flavor). Thanks Rebecca!

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!
