Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
I wanted to make quesadillas, but didn't have tortillas, and didn't feel like running to the store for some. I 1/2ed this recipe because I didn't need very many. My husband LOVED them!!! And I was wondering how he'd react, as he's very picky. He thinks these really are so much better than store bought. I did substitute shortening for lard, and used hot water. The dough is nice and stretchy, and I could roll them very thin with a wooden roller. So delicious. I was surprised though, especially with my baking experience, that 1/2 the recipe made only 4, 8-10 inch tortillas. I guess 2 cups of flour doesn't go far in this recipe, but there really aren't any other ingredients so I guess that's it. So good though. You won't regret using this one.

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Yum...yum...yum. This recipe looked more like a muffin recipe to me, so I used 1/2 wheat flour and oil in place of the shortening. They were so delicious. I think I will add more fruit next time and reduce the oil. I don't think it will change the quality of it at all.

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.

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.

Decadent! 1/2 this recipe was perfect for frosting an 8 inch 2 layer cake.

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.

Elaine's Sweet and Tangy Loose Beef BBQ

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
YUM!!! This is so delicious. I often buy roasts because they are on sale, but I get stuck making them the same way all the time. This is such a good recipe. I scaled the recipe down to 10 servings, but after removing all the fat, there was only enough meat left to make about 6 good sandwiches. This is a perfect recipe for a laid back dinner with friends and beer. So good. This will go into my collection for sure.

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.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
I made this as written the first time...ans it turned out great...though it ruined my hand mixer. (it smoked the little motor right up) My husband then bought me a KitchenAid...and it did the job. However, the second time around, I used marshmallow fluff. The results were nowhere near as nice. It was way stickier...and I needed a lot more sugar...and the taste wasn't as nice as a result. I will stick to the heating of mini-marshmallows from now on. (btw, I was making fondant flowers for a friend's wedding cupcakes with this recipe.)

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!
