Bob's Cinnamon-Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2004
I printed this out a long time ago and finally got around to trying them out today. These were just awful. I followed the recipe exactly and don't know how anyone could like the reults I got - and I'm not that hard to please. There was a distinct vinegar flavor and they were soggy. I tried one bite of the first batch and didn't even finish cooking them.

Pumpkin Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2004
This was great. Very moist, very dense. Even my mom liked it, and she hates pumpkin and walnuts. It was not nearly as sweet as I thought it would be, considering the amount of sugar. I added the vanilla frosting glaze variation from the "Pumpkin Cake with Orange Glaze" recipe, and it relly went well with the cake. The only modifications I made were: used 1/2 cup applesauce in place of half the oil, used 4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice in place of the spices, and added 1/2 cup raisins. Definitely a keeper!

Banana Peanut Butter Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2004
I just finished taste testing this and I have to say - YUM! It was hard waiting so long for it to cook - it took me 80 minutes, plus time to cool, of course. I covered the bread after cooking 50 minutes and it came out perfect. I find the texture to be very good - not too dense as some say. The flavors meld very well. It's not too p-nutty or too banana-y, but definitely has flavor. I followed the recipe just like it says but omitted the walnuts. I'll try it with chunky p-nut butter next time. Thanks for a great alternative to plain banana bread.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
This was definitely easy. A success for my first time making fudge. It was too sweet for my taste (and I have a tremendous sweet tooth). And it does not hold up if you don't keep it refrigerated. Other than that, I liked it.

Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2003
A heavy meal, but very tasty. One trick my mom taught me was to put the steaks, after you've fried them, in a covered casserole dish in the oven at 300 or so while you finish up the rest of dinner. It makes the breading not quite as crispy, but it keeps the steaks warm and it makes the meat more tender.

Taste of Home's Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2003
These were absolutely delicious - sort of like a mini-carrot cake. I left the coconut out, but otherwise followed the recipe and received many compliments when I took them to church. They're very moist, even a couple of days later. The tops of mine got a little gooey, but that might be because I made them at night and they may not have cooled completely before I wrapped them up. I'll definitely make these again.

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2003
I made these for a work potluck and they tasted very good. However, they were so difficult to make, I doubt I'll ever try them again. No matter how fast I worked with the dough, it became a huge sticky mess. It helped to pat my hands in cocoa powder before handling each ball of dough.

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2003
This was a very good recipe. I've never had dumplings like that before - so light and fluffly, like little biscuits! I doubled the soup and broth, but we ended up with too much, I think. I didn't use onion or celery. I thought the celery seed was a little powerful - I'll use less next time. And my dumplings were a little big, so I'll make them smaller next time. Great recipe and definitely a repeater!

Spicy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2003
These turned out very good when I first made them. My husband even complimented them, which is saying a lot! I used 2 bananas since I had four that were getting too ripe, and the batter seemed a little dry with only one. I also added raisins and pecans to half of the batch and prefered those to the plain ones. We didn't finish eating these, though - after the first day, they were too soft and cakelike for our taste. I probably won't repeat it.
