Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2005
This recipe doesn't make bars. It makes a pumpkin cake, and a mediocre one at that. Not at all what I was hoping for.

Brunch on the Bayou

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2005
This is rich, but so good. I made it on Christmas Eve, so that we could have a hot breakfast Christmas morning. Everyone stopped opening presents for this! Pair with fruit salad to balance the richness.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
Okay...I've tried this recipe twice, since everybody's raving about it. I thought maybe the first bad result was atypical. This is just awful. The flavor is almost nonexistant. What a waste of a good roast. Cooked to death in bland "sauce." Please, do yourself a favor--make a pot roast the old-fashioned way and spare yourself another bland meal.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
These are really good. I experimented with my batch and found that after shaping the rolls and placing them in the greased pan, they could rest, covered, in the fridge overnight. In the morning, simply place them into the preheated oven to bake--a very fast breakfast. The unbaked rolls also freeze well (I used 2 8-inch square disposable pans and put 6 rolls in each pan.) The night before, simply put the pan into the fridge. In the morning, they're ready for the oven. Easy and great to have on a cold morning. I was a little concerned that they didn't look doubled before I baked them this way, but they rose perfectly in the oven. Sure beats having to get up 3 hours before breakfast!

Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2003
This recipe is easy, and fun to play with and adjust. I use it now with Vigo, instead of saffron (easier on the pocketbook, and with all the strong flavors in the vegs and spices, I can't tell a difference.) I also use Rotel tomatoes, and whatever veggies I have in the fridge that need to be used up. Thanks for this basic recipe.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2003
This is easy bread pudding--no water bath! I used very stale French bread, and let it soak in the custard for about half an hour, pressing it lightly into the liquid every so often. This recipe isn't too sweet, so the finished pudding could use a sauce or ice cream. But the taste and texture are good. I used all the eggs the recipe called for, because I don't like dry bread pudding. I doubled the recipe, but next time I will try baking in a slightly smaller dish--this was a little flatter than I'd like. My grandmother used to top her bread pudding with a meringue. Maybe I'll try that next time. Overall, a good, fast, and easy recipe.

Aunt Johnnie's Pound Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2003
I really liked this cake--especially the almond flavor. And it was so easy! I will definitely make this again--I keep thinking of it with fresh summer peaches and cream. My other pound cake recipe was so fussy--this one is easy and fast. Very good!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2003
This is a very good basic ham glaze. It is not a substitute for the famous store-bought variety though--it has too much liquid to form a coating, even though I did substitute brown sugar for the syrup. But, it's still very good. Definitely half this recipe; I did (after reading these reviews) and still had leftovers.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2003
This wasn't bad, but it didn't warrant raves, either. After making it, I can't see what all the fuss is about, but I guess I feel the same way about the restaurant chain, too. Overrated.

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2003
This was very good. I had filling left over, so I froze it and used it later to stuff shells. Topped those shells with some refrigerated alfredo sauce and tomato sauce, and had a fast easy dinner the next week. I will definitely make this again!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2002
The best! I used this recipe to make 2 Bundt cakes. They were incredibly moist and flavorful. I used pecans instead of walnuts, but toffee chips or chocolate chips would be good too. This will be my only banana bread recipe from now on!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2002
The taste was really good, but the meat was a little dry and stringy. I alleviated this by slicing it, and then putting the slices back into the juice for a little while. Overall, pretty good.

The Best Corn Bread You'll Ever Eat

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2002
This recipe didn't have as much flavor as the recipe I usually use. I thought the creamed corn and sour cream would really jazz it up, but for some reason, it was just so-so.

Sweet Sourdough Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2002
These are very light and easy to make. A great way to use up extra sourdough starter. I think they need an "add-in", like chocolate chips, nuts or toffee chips. Very good.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2001
Very good recipe--I have used it for years, after finding it on a bag of Gold Medal flour. Simple yet delicious. Be careful that there aren't any tiny lumps in the cream of tartar though.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2001
This was excellent--I also used a little cumin and chili powder in the sauce. I found, too, that the amount of filling is inadequate for 6 enchiladas--I like mine overstuffed, I guess. I should also say that I normally steer clear of recipes that have ingredients like canned soup, etc. because I like making things from scratch. In the past, these types of recipes have often tasted like a step above frozen dinners. But this one is different. I made these last night for a casual dinner party and everyone loved them! I will definitely make these again!

Fried Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2001
This was an excellent recipe--it tastes just like the fried ice cream at one of my favorite restaurants. I made this for a casual dinner party, and put hot fudge and whipped cream on top. Everyone raved about it. I added a lot more cinnamon than the recipe called for, though, because I didn't feel that the stated amount was enough. Although somewhat time consuming, I didn't think this was particularly difficult. I agree that the scoops of ice cream are easily shaped into a ball when you are rolling them in the coating. Also, the frying times turned out to be more like 5 to 10 seconds for me. I will definitely make this again!

Brisket with BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2001
I was looking for something easy that I could serve when entertaining a large number of people. I didn't want to be in the kitchen during the entire party, but I wanted something with lots of flavor. This recipe was perfect. I did double the sauce, but ended up using only half of it during cooking, so I put the other half in a serving bowl on the table for those who like extra. Everybody raved about this--I especially like the leftovers (if you're lucky) on buns with coleslaw. Tender and tasty.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2001
These are definitely the easiest biscuits, with no added frills. They are terrific, too, and even people who can't make biscuits can make these. Next time, I will try to knead them less and use less flour to try and get them even more tender. I also want to try them with a little more sugar. This is a great recipe!

Blondie Caramel Heaven

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2001
I thought this would be terrific, after reading the reviews here, but it turned out just so-so. It was sickeningly sweet, and the only way I could salvage it was to heat it and serve it under ice cream. No one was particularly impressed. Sorry, but I won't make this again.
