Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
YUM!!! These are the best refried beans ever. I doubled the recipe because I had two functions to take them to in two days. This recipe makes so much though that I really didn't need to do that. There's so much flavor in them. Much better than our fave Mexican restaurant...and I'm sure much healthier too. I'm hooked. Thanks!

Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Is it so bad for a pregnant woman to eat hot fudge sauce....by itself? (cause that's what I was doing) So delicious, and super easy. It barely took any longer to make than heating up a jar of the store bought stuff. I didn't have semisweet chocolate squares, but fyi, 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips is the same thing.

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
Delicious! I used tomatoes with garlic and basil, only one green pepper, and I absent-mindedly forgot to buy garlic with the rest of my ingredients. Even subbing garlic powder for it made this sauce wonderful. I did drain the hamburger before adding it to the tomatoes. Saved us from a little unneeded fat. So, so good.

Easy Devonshire Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I guestimated everything, added a little more sugar, per other reviews advice, and put in about 1 tsp. vanilla. It was so delicious. It was served at a tea party themed baby shower with orange marmalade and orange/cranberry scones.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
So delicious and easy. I added dried cranberries and orange zest instead of raisins. They were wonderful with orange marmalade, and Easy Devonshire Cream. (from this site)

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
My husband gave this a ten, and he never gives tens! For the fudge topping, I used the Hot Fudge Sauce recipe from this site. Its very delicious. Will use this as my chocolate frosting recipe from now on. :-)

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Awesome! Made as is, then again without the banana because my husband hates banana. Without banana, I added 1/2 cup applesauce to compensate. That was awesome too!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Yum, yum, yum! This was such a great cake. My 3 year old daughter saw a cartoon drawing of an apple cake and wanted to make one. I chose this one, and we weren't disappointed. It was very delicious. We iced it with a cream cheese icing. It was so good that I kept picking at it. So I wouldn't eat the whole thing...I took it to my mother's house for her and my dad to eat it up!

Colored Sugar

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
Awesome! This worked perfectly. I had spent so much money getting all the ingredients for a cupcake themed baby shower...and forgot the colored sugar...and I didn't want to go back out for that, or spend 5 bucks on it. I used some barely diluted color paste. Put 1/2 cup sugar in a Ziploc bag...added a couple color drops, Viola! Worked like a charm.

Ma Ma's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Very delicious. I iced these with butter cream, and sprinkled them with colored sugar. My husband loved these even more than our daughter...who has an insatiable sweet tooth. I didn't have butter flavored crisco, but added some butter flavoring, and they were great. *just a side note...If you don't want to buy self rising flour just for this recipe, you can substitute regular flour. For every cup of regular flour just add 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder. It is the same as self rising.

Thai Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
Have an abundance of cucumbers this summer...and decided on this salad. It was simply delicious! I took the advice of those who said to cut back on the sugar. I cut it to 1/3 cup. I also added 1/2 thinly sliced sweet onion. And, I used cashews since I had those on hand. I liked the cashews, but am eager to try with the peanuts too. You won't be disappointed.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
I thought my other pie crust recipe was good...this will now be my go to pie crust. I imagine that it could be easily halved as the recipe makes a generous double crust. I actually liked having crust dough to spare. It seems like I am always scratching to get enough for my pies. And this crust tastes wonderful...I believe the sugar really adds so much. I used this for a lattice pie, Grandma Opal's Apple Pie from this site. It was delicious as well. Horray for the grandma's!

Dad's Pan-Fried Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Better than delicious! I am always hesitant to try new recipes because my husband is rather picky. He LOVED them, as did I. He said he felt he should be eating at a Japanese steakhouse. The kids didn't love them as we did, and didn't finish there's...but my husband ate the remnants.

Chocolate Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
I wish I could give 4 1/2 stars to this recipe. I followed the directions exactly, but really should've heeded the advice of those that said to increase the corn starch to 4 Tbsp. It was such a soft set. The taste was extraordinary, but chocolate is just a bit too thin. 4 Tbsp next time, and it is a 5 star pie.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
Delicious! Saw it featured...and made it the same night. I didn't have parsley, wine vinegar, or lemons. I used balsamic vinegar and lime juice. Omitted the parsley. I pulled some frozen chicken tenders out of the freezer, put them right in the marinade...and left them in the fridge for the day. They were still a little frozen in the middle...but cooked up perfectly on the grill. The whole family loved it.

Slow Cooker Carolina BBQ

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Without the liquid smoke...4 stars. With liquid smoke...5 stars all the way. I made 2 batches with the first following the recipe exactly and the second adding the liquid smoke. Only one Tbsp is needed. It is a delightful recipe. We live in VA...and my husband grew up in NC. This is dead on bbq. I will never use a different bbq recipe again. And, fyi, I didn't mind the smell in the house...and I have the most sensitive of noses. Perhaps it is because I enjoy the vinegar bbq so much? Yum!

Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
It is so delicious. I am sitting here wondering how in the world orange juice and cool whip could improve it at all. And, it's so easy!
