Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
This was a quick and easy frosting for our fall cookies. I did find that the without adding food coloring (as with our white frosted ghost cookies) it was a bit tough to spread. Aside from that I didn't experience any streaks or spreading issues once the food color was added.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Yum, these were so soft, chewy, and just enough sugar to satisfy that sweet tooth...My 7 year old daughter made these with my assistance so that just goes to show you how easy this recipe is. Like other reviewers I also rolled mine out on a little confectioner sugar and pre-fridge (I added 2 tsp of vanilla extract and 3 cups of sugar).

Triple Dipped Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This was excellent, actually reminded me of KFC extra crispy chicken wings (with a few modification it was the KFC hot wings)...The only thing I noticed was that it was bland, so on my subsequent batches I seasoned the chicken, added some Italian seasoning to the dry mixture, and added some hot sauce to the wet mixture (also I didn't have enough AP flour so I used self-rising).

Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
I am so mad I can only give this five stars. When I say it is the best cookie I have had the pleasure of eating and making, this is an under statement. All of the previous cookie recipes I've made off of this site have been a disaster (puffy, cake like, and dry inside by following their recipe). This cookie turned out soft, moist, and chewy. The only thing I did to this which brought it over the top was add 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter and 1 1/2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels. Believe me when I say that this recipe will be part of the many recipes I pass down to my children. My first batch yielded about 18-20 cookies and with a family of 5 they were gone within an hour.

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
WOW! I was hesitant to use mayonnaise but decided like many viewers to follow the recipe to a "T" (except I used boneless skinless breasts), and I'm glad I did. I didn't use plain bread crumbs but instead used Italian seasoned bread crumbs and the flavor was off the chain. The end product was juicy, moist, flavorful, crisp, and in my household all gone. This is definitely one that will be used in my family on a regular basis.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
I followed the recipe almost to a 't' the only thing I did different was use butter shortening instead of regular as I was making a peach cobbler. Th end result was a flavorful, moist, light, buttery crust that was the perfect consistency for my cobbler and peach tarts. My family said it was the best that they've had from me. Thanks Barbara for sharing~

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
OMG, this was by far the best from scratch pancake recipe out there. I just finished making a double batch of this and my family devoured it before I had a chance to even take a picture (hubby even stated it was better than IHOP-his favorite pancake joint). Like many reviewers I followed the recipe to a 'T' (although I didn't let my eggs or milk sit a room temperature like many). The only thing I did was add vanilla extract as suggested (which took it to another level). For my kiddos I added white chocolate morsels to their pancakes and it was a hit. This is a very versatile recipe that can incorprate any additions, but please do not take or substitute any ingredients listed. Looking forward to making some more tomorrow.

Five Ingredient Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
This was my first time at ice-cream making and I must admit without using an ice cream maker I couldn't tell the difference. It was the perfect consistency, flavor (which I added fresh strawberries chopped up and also marinated strawberries that had sat in a tbsp of sugar for a few hours). This was a extremely easy and fun to make with my two girls.

Sweet and Sour Chicken I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
All I can say is yum! This exceeded my expectations, the batter created this crunchy coat round the chicken and was delicious by itself after I took the advise of others and seasoned my chicken with salt and pepper. I must admit that if I had not read some reviews probably to making it, the batter may have been a complete disaster. The batter will be very thick and sticky and you may think that your batter isn't adhering to the chicken but trust me when I say that it will puff with barely anything on it as long as it has been dipped in the batter. I cooked my chicken probably an hour before we had dinner, and just before serving it I placed it in the oven on 200 degrees for about 15 minutes and the coating was still crunchy. Also I didn't have orange food coloring and had to use red (about 8 drops) for it not to look so pink after the slurry was added. But aside from that my family really enjoyed it, thanks Linda.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
This is the best chocolate cake I have ever had let alone ever made! I refuse to buy another boxed chocolate cake or cake out of a store for that matter. My four year old daughter and I made this last night and half of the cake was gone within 20 minutes. I was hesitant to use the hot water because prior to adding the batter was at the perfect cake consistency, but I followed the directions to the 't' and I'm glad I did. The end result was a moist, rich, light chocolate cake with 6 protruding bellies. Thank you for providing this recipe it will definitely join our collection and will be passed generation after generation.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
Mmm, what could be better than peanut butter cookies than flourless peanut butter cookies. I have to admit I was skeptical about not adding flour but this simple 3 ingredient recipe was by far the best I have ever had (store bought or made). My husband and kids absolutely kept coming back for more. The taste was crunchy on the outside, soft inside, and peanut butter through and through. This is definitely a recipe that will kept in my recipe book.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Delicious...I didn't alternate between using two pots because the starch from the rice pot helped to thicken and it didn't make any sense to do so. After the rice had cooked I just added the remaining ingredients in order. I found however, that I had to add a touch more sugar for my taste and that of my kids. I used mixed raisins, and a half cup of half-n-half in addition to milk. Then added a few dashes of cinnamon to top it off, the end result was an empty pot in 20 minutes.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
OMG, I wish I could give these 10 stars. These are by far the best pretzels ever. They came out soft and chewy and were delicious with either a side of warm cream cheese, nacho cheese sauce, and or just as is with sea salt (didn't have kosher on hand) or cinnamon/sugar (we've tried them all). We didn't change a thing and each and every time they reminded us how much money we had wasted going to the mall and buying them. So thank you Christa Rose for providing with a full-proof recipe this is one recipe that will be passed down to my kids (actually my 6 year old made the first batch which is noted in the picture).

Scrumptious Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
These were delicious and a recipe keeper. I didn't have on hand heavy cream so I used half-n-half and I didn't notice a difference. Aside from that I added more sugar to my strawberries and let them sit overnight which created a sweet delicious berry juice. My kids loved these shortcakes and said "mom this is a keeper".

Shrimp Scampi V

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
This was delicioso as my children have stated. The only thing I did different was I drizzled a little bit of evo before adding the butter, used more fresh garlic (as we are garlic eaters), incorporated 2 cups of white wine (Pinot Grigio), dash of garlic powder and salt (told ya we love garlic) and fresh grated parmesan cheese. Many would think that it would be too garlicky but actually it was very subtle but gave the pasta a little something something when it was all mixed in.

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This was by far the best tartar sauce ever and the fact that it was homemade makes it that much better...I have always loved and kept packed of Long John Silver's Tartar sauce because I could never find a restaurant that could out do them. But this my friends surpasses them. I followed the recipe to the "T" adding in the lemon juice but omitting the salt.

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
This sauce was simple and heaven...What I did was melt the butter slowly (so that it doesn't brown), then I added the cream and because I needed more sauce than what the recipe called for and only had a cup and half of heavy cream I also added to that half and half (for my volume). After that simmered for about 5-10 minutes I grated a pinch of nutmeg, a pinch of sea salt, incorporated some fresh ground pepper (medium grind), and fresh Parmesan/Mozzarella cheese mixture. The end result was a white sauce which was velvet over a bed of noodles.

Baked Maryland Lump Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
There were hands down the best I have had and made...I've tried other recipes and they were much too wet and or much too salty with a pungent mustard taste. The only thing I did because I wasn't ready to use them right away was placed them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes for them to firm up.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I've been cooking my mac and cheese this way for years and I noticed that Patti Labelle cooks her's the exact same way as well but I think she uses four eggs which I use also if I'm cooking a large batch (for Thanksgiving and Christmas)...Everyone loves this and I get asked for the recipe all the time.

Orange Salmon with Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
The dish came out delicious, however I had to add a few modifications. First I increase the oj to about half a cup since I had large fillets, in addition I used perhaps 3 tablespoons of soy sauce. I also added some orange marmalade to give it extra sweetness. Aside from that my family enjoyed the salmon.
