Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
Very easy recipe with great results. I used 5 packages of 7.5 ounce buttermilk biscuits (not grand or jumbo sized) and just cut them in half. The "biscuit balls" only filled my bundt pan about halfway full, but after baking they were slightly puffing over the top, so, it 5 packages was the perfect amount! I baked the monkey bread for 30 minutes, then I let it cool for 5 minutes before flipping it over onto my cake stand and letting all the yummy syrup ooze down. Everyone loved this stuff! So addictive, it's REALLY hard to stop picking at it!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
This "bread" is more like a huge, fudge-y (but still cake-y!), addictive brownie! I halved the recipe and used an extra half cup for grated zucchini, used half unsweetened apple sauce and half canola oil, used half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract (probably over-kill, I know!) and added an extra 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. I also used two Hershey's "special dark" chocolate bars, chopped up, instead of the chocolate chips. Using chocolate bars instead of chocolate chips results in a much more melty chocolate-studded treat. They don't harden a lot after being baked so they're still "melty" days after! I LOVE vegetables but this is seriously the most decadent, delicious way to enjoy zucchini!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
Many people in my life are addicted to the chocolate chip cookies I make, and they're good, but I still wanted to find a cookie I was truly addicted to! These cookies are absolutely wonderful. I bake cookies regularly, and can usually resist eating multiples as soon as they come out of the oven, but these cookies are addictive! I did make a few changes because of my preferences, but definitely not because I had doubts about the original cookie recipe! I used 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce, used 1 1/4 teaspoons of cinnamon, added a package of instant chocolate pudding mix, and added 1/2 cup of raisins in addition to the chocolate chips. These cookies turned out chewy, cinnamony, chocolatey and absolutely delicious! Some people may have reservations about cinnamon and chocolate together but give it a try! The combination is unexpected but delicious. These cookies taste incredibly comforting, like an old family recipe, but also gourmet!

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
I absolutely HATE mayo, so this coleslaw was perfect for me! I used a 16 ounce bag of coleslaw mix, and halved everything for the dressing. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and it turned out wonderfully! I actually did add about 2 tablespoons more of vinegar though, I love vinegar! Next time I'm going to make it with sesame oil and rice wine vinegar and brown sugar. We shall see....!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
These cookies are incredibly delicious! I've had many that say they're the best oatmeal cookies that they've ever eaten! I make them with all butter, and I use 1 cup finely chopped pecans and 1 (10 ounce) package cinnamon chips instead of raisins. I'm sure these would be fabulous with raisins, though!

Oyster and Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I made this dressing for thanksgiving dinner. It tasted awesome, but next time I'm going to reduce the liquids a bit, it was just too "packed down" and not fluffy enough. Taste-wise, it was a hit, though. Definitely not too "fishy". I did add 2 tablespoons of honey to my jiffy cornbread when making this.

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Wow, this pie crust is AMAZING! People began just picking at the crust of my chicken pot pie last night! I chilled everything, mixing bowls, knives, forks, everything! I also used half butter and half shortening, but I still used the 1 teaspoon of salt. YUM!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
This pot pie recipe is pretty delicious! Of course, as with every recipe, I tweaked it a little bit, but the basic idea of it was the same! I made 'The Best Pie Crust' on here. I cubed 1 potato, cubed my chicken, marinated the chicken in a mix of milk, worchestechire sauce, cumin, sage, garlic, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper. When I was ready to begin making the pot pie I cooked the chicken and potatoes in a skillet and after they were almost done I added 2 cups of diced frozen vegetables. I used 2 cups of chicken broth, 3/4 cup milk and about a 1/3 cup chive and onion cream cheese with the flour and all of the same spices I used to marinate the chicken in. I also mixed everything together before dumping it into the pie crust. so yummy!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
This is the best pumpkin chocolate chip cookie that I've ever tasted, but I still wish it tasted just a little more pumpkin-y! I cut down the cinnamon to 1 1/2 teaspoons then used a few dashes of ground cloves and ground nutmeg. I also used 1/2 stick melted butter and 1/4 cup vegetable oil. I think my additional spices gave it a more pumpkin pie type flavor. Next time I may use the entire can of pumpkin with half white and half brown sugar and a packet of instant pudding mix to dry it out a little more.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
These cookies are addictive, but what chocolate isn't? I only gave this recipe 4 stars because it really isn't out of this world, it's pretty great though. I used chocolate cake mix and mini chocolate chips and it made about 30 cookies. I used other reviewer's suggestions and added 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon vanilla. These cookies are extremely sweet and yummy, they taste like a brownie. I feel like they're missing just a tiny something to make them spectacular though, maybe some sort of spice?

Chocolate Mint Dessert Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
After reading the reviews, I started out making these brownies but substituted the actual brownie part with "the best brownies" from a hershey's cookbook I have. I followed the rest of the recipe, except I substituted the 2 tablespoons creme de menthe liqueur with 2.5 teaspoons peppermint extract. These turned out wonderfully! Now whenever there's a get-together I'm asked to bring these, even if there won't be any other food!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
This frosting is absolutely delicious! The texture is incredibly fluffy, if you want the texture of an icing you buy in a store, definitely add a little more milk. Personally, I think the texture and flavor of the icing make it almost dreamy. This icing is definitely perfect for anyone who has a sweet tooth, but also loves the saltiness of peanut butter. I frosted brownies with this and they're amazing. I bet this frosting would also be devine on banana cake or just spread on saltines!

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
This recipe is incredibly delicious! As suggested, I added 2 tablespoons of baking powder, much more vanilla and salt. I also added 1/2 teaspoon almond extract and made my cookies chocolate chip butterscotch cookies by substituting 2 cups of chocolate chips with butterscotch chips and 1 of the boxes of vanilla pudding with butterscotch pudding. The texture of these cookies is incredible!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Definitely the ultimate banana bread recipe, and so simple, too! I love love love extra banana-y banana bread, so I changed the amount of mashed banana to 2 1/2 cups and only used 1 egg. I also added 2 teaspoons of vanilla, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. I baked mine at 325 F for 30 minutes in a muffin pan and the muffins turned out absolutely wonderful! They're extremely moist but still fluffy and very, very flavorful! These muffins definitely don't need any sort of topping!
