Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
What a delicious cake. It is a very light, tender cake with a rich buttery flavor. I ended up having to make two of these because the first one fell apart. I used a "rose" shaped bundt pan, and I think it was just too tender for that type of pan. When I baked it in a traditional bundt pan, it came out perfectly. I think I might try to double the glaze next time.

Delicious, and so easy. I used it on the Beet Bundt Cake and it was perfect.

Beet Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
After reading all the reviews, I was a little nervous about detecting the beet flavor, so I added chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon of cocoa, and topped the cake with the chocolate bundt cake icing found here at allrecipes. I served it to my guests at my daughter's baby shower and mentioned that there was a "secret" ingredient. No one could guess what it was. At the end of the shower, I told them it was beets and no one could believe it. The cake was almost totally gone at the end. This is a great recipe and I will definitely use it again.

Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
These were a huge hit at my daughter's baby shower. The only change I made was to bake the meatballs instead of frying them. I used 90% ground beef and baked on foil lined cookie sheets. There was almost no grease. I also used Panko bread crumbs. They are far superior to traditional bread crumbs. The meatballs themselves were incredible. This will be my new meatball recipe.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Now I'm not really a chili fan, but I love this chili. I don't even like beans, but I do in this chili. Wonderful combination of flavors. We just topped with the shredded cheese.

GrannyLin's Barbeque Ribs Made Easy

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Really, really good. I was going to finish them off on the grill, but it rained. So even right out of the crockpot they were delicious. And truly, you couldn't get any easier.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Delicious and my new favorite roast. I followed the directions, but substituted onion powder and organic beef soup base for the french onion soup mix to avoid the chemicals. It was a big hit. I recommend sticking with the chuck roast as I think it has more flavor.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Oh my goodness. This recipe is amazing and so much like that famous restaurant's soup. I did adjust a few things for my family's tastes. I omitted the red pepper flakes. I used Italian sausages instead of bulk sausages -- love the pieces instead of crumbles. Also, using kale instead of spinach is a MUST. Kale just makes this soup, IMHO.

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I served this for my daughter's birthday dinner, and everyone loved it. Some said it was the best Fettucine Alfredo they'd ever had. I used chicken instead of shrimp and used real cream instead of half and half. Great recipe.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I have made this recipe twice with great success. I read the reviews and so was forewarned to be cautious and leave plenty of time for cooking -- it took mine almost an extra hour. I doubled the recipe and baked the potatoes in a 9x13 inch pan for 45 minutes covered with foil. I removed the foil and baked another 30 minutes and then tested the potatoes. They needed another 30 minutes baked covered with foil. I finished by removing the foil, covering with Parmesan and baking a final 20 minutes. They were awesome. The cheese on the edge of the pan was crispy and delicious. All but one spoonful was eaten and guests raved. This will be a staple in my house.

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
I made this for Thanksgiving Dinner in lieu of my husband's mother's authentic creamed corn scraped from the cob. Even though it isn't in the same category "Grammy's" creamed corn, it was still a huge hit. We will definitely make this again.

Moroccan Meat Cigars

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
I made these tonight for dinner and followed the recipe exactly. My husband and I both thought they were a little bland. This isn't a difficult recipe and I think worth another try. Next time I will add salt and include a dipping sauce of some type. Surprisingly with the variety of spices, the "cigar" itself is bland. I also think brushing the phyllo with butter would add more flavor.

Seafood Chowder

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I wish I could give this 4.5 stars. It is a very good, easy recipe. Like another reviewer I added more potatoes. I also cooked the whitefish in the soup at the end. Next time I'm going to be sure to use only organic, cream based soups as the "name brand" soups have msg in them. It was quite easy, and very good.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Wow, these are delicious. Due to lack of the proper ingredients I used applesauce instead of apple butter and omitted the wheat germ. I also used 2 whole eggs because I don't like to throw the yoke away, and, contrary to current popular belief, I think the WHOLE egg is good for you. I used only whole wheat (I ground the equivalent) 2 cups of soft wheat). This is they type of recipe that will taste great with any minor alterations you make. I will definitely make these again.

Meatloaf Muffins

For me, this recipe was just so-so. It's easy and tastes okay, but not something I will probably fix again.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
Excellent quiche -- and so versatile. I made one as described in the recipe and one with chicken and asparagus. They puffed up dramatically in the oven, and were great when it was ime to eat them. This is a delicious, easy, versatile recipe and one I will use many times.
