Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
I had this for the first time last week when my daughter made them as a birthday present for her aunt. No one could believe they were made with just three ingredients! Easiest peanut butter cookies ever.

Chow Clusters

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
I've been making a cookie like this for years and called it "Scotch Crunchies". My recipe has one cup of cashews instead of 1/2 cup, but I've also noticed you can adjust this recipe to your tastes.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
These were really tasty! The only quarrel I have with them (and the reason I only gave them 4 stars) is they don't rise very well. You can't even tell they're low-fat!

Easy Clotted Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
I found a recipe like this last year but it was called Mock Clotted Cream, which would be a more acceptable title for the purists out there commenting it's not clotted cream. Even though it is not true clotted cream, it did go well with lemon curd and scones.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
These apple slices were awesome! I used it as a filling in apple tarts. We also just ate them with a fork!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
I also got this recipe off the Hershey's cocoa can, around 1970-1972. I got a blue ribbon at the fair with this cake! I recommend if your hands are shakey that you put your pan on the oven rack, then pour in the cake batter. It's thin, and if you're not steady it can slop on the sides.

Frosty Orange Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
This pie was AWESOME! I made it just as written. There wasn't too much filling because it is the type of pie that is supposed to be mounded in the pie shell. For anyone who wants to make it, I'd recommend NO changes. Great recipe!

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
I followed the basic ingredients and measurements for this Swiss Steak but was too lazy to sear the meat or shred the carrots. I put the veggies in the crock pot, then the meat chunks, threw in the seasonings and flour and gave it a stir. It turned out great! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
This was by far the BEST banana pudding I've ever had. I made it with all the ingredients and measurements, but lightened up on the fat, sugar and calories just a bit. I used 1/3 fewer fat cream cheese, reduced fat Nilla wafers, fat-free sugar-free pudding and lite Cool-Whip. I used whole milk because pudding doesn't always turn out very well with fat-free or lower fat milk. It's not entirely guilt-free, but not quite as bad for you as it would be with all the extra fat and calories! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Lemon Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
Thank you for posting this recipe! I used it as a starting point. Instead of curry I put garlic and rosemary with the lemon, and we used it as a dipping sauce instead of adding it during cooking.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
These were easy to make and quite tasty, but a little hard to eat. When I bit down into one the filling squished out the sides. The kids didn't seem to like them, so I'll have to rate this down a bit. I might try adding an egg to the filling to see if it will stand up a bit better.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
These biscuits were ok, we ate them with butter and jam. I made them exactly as written since I don't believe in rating a recipe if you make changes. They were more the consistency of drop biscuits rather than the roll-out kind, so my hands got really sticky while trying to work with the dough. I had to cut them with a pastry wheel, and even then the dough stuck to it. After they baked they were fine, the problem was the raw dough.

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
I have been making this recipe for years and make one minor change: my son-in-law can't stand mushrooms so I use cream of celery soup. Everyone loves this dish -- including all four grandkids -- and there are never any leftovers! Try making this as-written before making any changes. You just might be surprised how good it is!

Cranberry Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
I would start by ignoring any reviewers that did not follow the directions and gave it less than 5 stars. The recipe clearly says to pour the sauce over the cream cheese so make sure you do that. The sauce is great as a dip with the cream cheese, or you can use it as a relish. Great recipe as-is!

Rhubarb Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
This was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. I made it as is, except put one teaspoon cinnamon in the batter and one teaspoon in the topping (instead of all of it in the topping). I was planning on taking it to work but a third of it disappeared over night. It is nice and moist, very delicious.

Homemade Baking Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2014
Homemade baking mixes, like this one, are a great shortcut for busy cooks. All the flavor and convenience of Bisquick with none of the preservatives. For the two users who gave the recipe a lower rating because you don't know what to do with it: use it as a substitute for any recipe that calls for Bisquick.
