Linguine with White Clam Sauce II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
My husband and I eat this all the time, the only thing I do differently is in a saucepan I melt half a stick of butter and place the garlic on that cooking on low. And due to this variation I cut back on the olive oil just using a drizzle. Perfect everytime---

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
This was so delicious, moist and flavorful. Instead of slicing the bananas as others have mentioned I mashed about 4-5 bananas, and substituted walnuts (as I didn't have any on hand) for pecans...I brought this to a brunch and they were an instant hit. Also since there was an abundance as I doubled the recipe, I placed this in a bundt pan and sliced them once cooled to indivdiual servings.

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
These are so delicious, soft, and buttery just the way dinner rolls should be. I will definitely make these again. As the other reviewers have mentioned you do need about a 1/2 cup to cup of extra flour.

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.

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.

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
I just finished making these for Xmas about 2 hours ago; as Pecan Pie is my husband and Uncle's favorite. My husband said this is by far better than the pie itself. Like other reviewers I did 3/4 C of sugar and 3/4 C of brown sugar instead of the 1 1/2 C of sugar like a traditional pie would call for. I will most definitely keep this recipe going for many winter holidays to come.

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
Double Chocolaty Goodness, Just finished three batches and my husband said they were the best chocolate chip cookies ever. I used 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels and 2 cups of milk chocolate chip morsels...Thank you for satisfying our sweet tooth, can't wait for the kids to enjoy.

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.

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.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
What could be better than soft, chewy, tasteful, cinnamon rolls made from scratch. I made these with my mixer as I don't own a bread machine and personally I couldn't taste the difference, my husband is in awe that they are better than the store bought and retail chains. I also used active rapid rising yeast, and I proofed twice (once when the dough was made and then a second time when I cut the log into the rolls)....Other than that followed the recipe to a "t". This is a must recipe to have in any box.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
Ooey, gooey, chocolate goodness (of course with the help of a few more morsels)...Without refrigerating the dough my cookies still did not turn out flat, they were simply delicious.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
