Grandma's Onion Rings (Southern Style)

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
These turned out great! It was the first time I had ever made onion rings and they were easy and everyone loved them. I only made a couple of changes. One change I made was to substitute buttermilk for regular milk, and the other change I made was when I forgot to add salt and pepper to the egg mixture. It still had plenty of salt and pepper taste for us. A tip I would offer is to follow the recipe regarding dipping into each mixture twice. Otherwise the crust is thin and they lack presentation quality. Thank you for sharing!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
This recipe is wonderful! I use silicone loaf pans so I don't dust them with the cinnamon sugar, but I will sprinkle it on top if I remember. ;) I have made this several times and sometimes I substitute half of the sour cream for yogurt and it's just as good. This recipe freezes really well which I love because I bake in bunches. My kids love it and this is a quick breakfast with a glass of milk.

Diana's Hawaiian Bread Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
These rolls are absolutely wonderful! They are very simple to make, and as one reviewer said, they even freeze well. The best way to do this is to roll up your 18 pieces or so of dough (only making 12 made them very dense and the middles never seemed to get done while the outside was too done), place them on a baking sheet in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Then place in a freezer bag and place back into the freezer until you need them. I use 2 tsp of vanilla and no lemon extract, and I use 2 tblsp honey and no molasses. Thank you for this recipe!!

Chicken Tortilla Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I used only 2 cups of milk and one can of chicken broth and ALOT of flour and this was still very thin, although it did have a good flavor. If you are looking for a thin tortilla soup, this is it, however if you would like a thick tortilla soup (like I was), let me make a few suggestions. Use three cans red enchilada sauce, one can cream of chicken, 1 onion, one can chicken broth, and 1 - 2 cups milk. When you sprinkle the cheese on top it will be much thicker. Hope this helps.

New York Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
This cheesecake has a good taste and is perfect for those who do not want a strong taste. The crust almost overpowers the cheesecake, so if I made this again, I would take another's suggesstion and cook the crust about half the time so that it could blend instead of being a completely seperate part. The texture is good when you eat it, but it was very difficult to cut without the whole thing falling apart. I agree with another reviewer who stated that it needed to be cooked longer and my oven is only 2 years old. Although the texture was not very soft, it still cracked. Overall, the taste is pretty good but for the presentation lacked.

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
I have made this recipe numerous times now, and I am so glad that I did so AFTER reading the other reviews. This is a wonderful recipe of the suggested modifications. Do not use water. This has a wonderful taste and texture without it. I cannot imagine how runny and icky it would be with it. Also, I have always used ground ginger and I only use a small pinch because we are not big on ginger. The oyster sauce is a must. If you don't use it, you will notice something is missing. I also like to add brocolli when and bamboo shoots just for fun. I love this recipe and make it about once a week, but had to rate it a 3 due to all of the modification made.

Mandarin Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
Our mall has a sweet orange chicken. If that is what you are looking for, this is not your recipe. The flavor I ended up with was a gingery, soyish, really orange sauce, which is not my preference, but I can see where it could be for others. My husband liked it.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
If you are looking for a very basic, kindof bland cookie, this is it. This is a very good recipe to build off of, but I have made them twice now and found them to be more like soft, sweet butter cookies. They do form very well, though, and would be great for a beginner baker or for children.

Vanilla Milkshake V

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
The ingredients were correct however the amounts led to a very runny milkshake. We added two additional scoops of icecream (all of our scoops were made with an icecream scoop and the scoops were large)and an additional ice cube. Then it needed a little more flavor so we added more vanilla.

Homemade Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
All we could taste were eggs and flour. Most recipes call for much fewer eggs and usually say about 1.5 cups of whites. This made well over 2 cups of egg whites and I think it was just entirely too much. Additionally, it fell, and I have never had an angel food cake fall before, homemade or otherwise. I was really disappointed after reading all of the rave reviews.
