Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I've tried many peach cobbler recipes. It's my favorite dessert. But this really takes the cake. I used a lot less sugar. 1/2 c for the peaches and 1 1/4 cup for the batter. I also followed others' suggestions: use 1 cup of boiling water with 2 tbs of butter.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This was a delicious glaze. Instead of brushing on the glaze last, I just dumped the entire glaze mixture onto the ham and into a baking bag with the ham. I tossed in some pineapple slices too.Then I cooked it at 325 for 2 hrs. The 6 lb ham I used turned out moist and delicious!

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
This was really delicious! I used fresh tomatoes from my garden. I used tomatoes that had a slight tint of red to it so that it will have a bit of a sweeter taste. Also, I did not cut the tomatoes into .5" thick; that is a bit too much. I also deep fried the tomatoes. They came out delicious!!!!!!!!!!

Tender Pork Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
The pork came out very tender. I shredded the pork to make some pulled pork bbq. I did add an extra bottle of bbq sauce with the pulled pork and made a sandwhich out of it.

Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
My search for the perfect peach cobbler recipe is officially over! This is by far the best tasting peach cobbler I have made. I have tried about 10 different cobbler recipes from this site and this recipe takes the crown. I read a lot of reviews on here and not many mention how the topping turned out. To me, the topping is what makes the cobbler! This cobbler had a crispy crust with, a not too cakey middle, and a perfect gooey bottom. It had all the right texture, and most importantly the taste! There were 2 slight modifications. I only used 1/4 c. butter (half a stick). I just wanted to cut a bit of fat off. Also, I used 2 cans of peaches (16 oz total). One can simply was not enough peaches for me. But I followed the rest of the recipe fully. I love this cobbler! I can't wait to try it with real peaches. YUM!!!!!!!!

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
This cobbler did not come out well at all for me. Maybe it's because I didn't use enough sugar. The topping came out really mushy. As others have said, you really have to cook this for an hour+. I am still looking for an easy cobbler recipe that will give me a non cakey topping.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
I love this alfredo sauce. I think next time, I will add fresh minced garlic instead of adding the garlic powder. I also used skim milk (it was all I had on hand). Plus, I think the skim milk made the suace a bit less fattening then called for. Using skim milk did not ruin the texture of the sauce at all. It turned out very thick and creamy - just how I like it. I also used low fat cream cheese. I'm very health conscious! I also lowered the heat to low while I cooked my shrimp, broccoli, and spinach to go as a side. I then poured the entire suace into my pot of linguine pasta. Then, I topped it off with my shrimp+veggie mixture. This turned out superb. Protein, fat, and carbs all in one dish. I will make this again, though not any time soon since it is so high in fat.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
I've tried another spinach salad recipe on here that was very similar. I just don't really like the salad that much. The dressing is so-so. This salad was good, but I really wouldn't make it again. It just wasnt to my taste.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
This was absolutely delicious. It was a very wholesome meal. I followed suggestions from the other reviews. I boiled the chicken first and then put it in the oven. The chicken came out very moist this way. Also, I mixed the veggies with the sauteed stuff. I spread half the sauteed mixture in the baking dish first, set the chicken on top, and topped it off with the rest of the mixture. It came out delicious like this. Oh, and you MUST use LOTS of fresh spinach. This is a great dish! It was so easy to prep and even better to eat!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
These brownies turned out to be ultra rich. My boyfriend loved these brownies. I thought they were a bit too sweet however, and I had even cut 3/4 c. sugar off from the recommended amt.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
These were the best onion rings ever. My sister and I made these and we (of course) made several modifications. First, we used 1/2 rice flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour. The rice flour makes the crust much crunchier. Instead of regular bread crumbs, we used the crumbs you use to make fish/shrimp fry. Also, we didn't have a rack to let the onions drip the batter. We just put all the onions in the batter at once and take them out individually and bread them. We immediately fry them after that. Doing this gave the onion rings a wonderful taste and crunch.

Ricardo's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
This crust was delicious! I was able to put lot of toppings without the dough getting soggy like some of the other pizza dough recipes I've tried from here. The dough rises very nicely to give a thick crispy crust.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
Mine turned out to be domed shape. It had a very nice and tasty middle, not to mention that it was very soft too. I just used a plate and added about 1/3 c sugar and mixed it with a few tablespoons of cinnamon onto the plate. I individually rolled each ball of dough into the sugar cinnamon. I will make this again for sure!
