Date Bars II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
I followed the recipe as written. The flavor is quite nice and I especially like the orange undertones. I was hoping for a crunchier texture which I think could be achieved by adding finely chopped walnuts to the filling. I used my food processor to mix the crust.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Fabulous find! The only mistake I made was not doubling the recipe. I assembled the smokies & bacon and tossed them in a container with the brown sugar. I transferred the cooked smokies to a mini slow cooker which made them easy to transport to the party. They were a hit!

Lemon Lover's Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
Just exactly what I was looking for. Wonderful texture and a mild lemon flavor. I prepared this as written however, I skipped the glaze. I'm sure that would've been a lovely addition. The flavor and texture were even better the second day. This one's a keeper!

Toll House Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I've baked this pie several times before using the recipe as written. I read several of the reviews and made the following changes with great results: reduce butter to 1/2 cup, add 2 tsp vanilla extract and 2 tsp instant espresso granules. Blend the eggs and sugar thoroughly before gradually adding the melted butter. The filling is really thick. Bake as directed. Excellent results! Tastes like a thick, chewy chocolaty chocolate chip cookie.

Sy's Challah

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
Absolutely fantastic challah. I highly recommend this recipe - no need to change a thing! I used my Kitchenaide stand mixer for the entire mixing and kneading process. I used "best for bread" flour and about 1/3 cup sugar. The end result is superb.

Rhubarb Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
The recipe made a yummy pie. I didn't have the required amount f rhubarb so I substituted with half fresh sliced strawberries. The result was absolutely delicious!

Buttermilk Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
These rolls are super easy to make and turned out beautifully. I prepared the dough in my Kitchenaid mixer and left it in the mixer bowl to rise before shaping in to rolls. Other reviewers suggested adding some sugar. I added about 1/3 cup white sugar to help out the yeast. Otherwise, no alterations are necessary. I tightly wrapped the leftovers in foil and they were tasty the next day.

Strawnana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Gotta say I am a little disappointed in this recipe. The strawberry flavor is nearly undetectable. Perhaps banana is just too overpowering for the berries.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Yummy! I doubled the recipe and added white chocolate chips. I also dropped in about 3/4 cup of shredded coconut. Used a 9x13 pyrex baking dish and baked for about 45 minutes. Super good.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Are you looking for a different way to enjoy zucchini? Give this a try. Great flavors and so easy to make. I rarely deviate from the original recipe on my first try. But, I couldn't resist adding about a tablespoon of minced garlic. I also sauteed the patties in olive oil. My garden keeps producing zucchini so I will be making this again.

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
I have made this salad for two potlucks this summer. I took a shortcut & used bagged iceberg lettuce salad (includes carrot and red cabbage) rather than clean and shred a head of lettuce. No other changes are necessary as this is great just as written. Try using a clean plastic bowl with snap on lid to make it easy for carry-ins. Love it!

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I will confirm the title of this recipe. These turned out pretty doggone fantastic. I added a scoop of white chocolate chips just to get them out of the pantry. Otherwise, I made no alterations to the recipe. They cookies turned out great and two days later are just as yummy.

Italian Love Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
My cake turned out just like the photo! This is so easy to make and well worth the effort. I used Duncan Hines devil's food cake mix and part skim ricotta cheese. I covered and refrigerated the unfrosted cake overnight adding the topping just before serving. The slices came out perfectly. The cake could be dressed up with chocolate curls, sliced strawberries or raspberries. This was a big hit with us.

Hasselback Potatoes

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
I confess to not being much of a baked potato fan, but this recipe intrigued me. I prepared the recipe as written and got great results. I placed the potatoes in a corning dish with lid for the first 40 minutes. Then, removed the lid for the second baking period after adding the cheese and bread crumbs. The result was excellent and a nice compliment to grilled hamburgers.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Sensational! The aroma of the roasting potatoes is fantastic. I made this just as written. Next time, I will decrease the rosemary by one-quarter only because it sort of overwhelmed the thyme. Super yummy!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
These cookies turned out great! I LOVE chocolate chip cookies that are soft and chewy. This recipe did not disappoint. I didn't add quite as much flour as the recipe listed. I add cup by cup and then hold back once the dough reaches the right consistency. I used butter and Crisco shortening. Just wonderful.

Famous Coconut-Almond Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I prepared this recipe as written and found that I needed more corn syrup to make the coconut stick together. I ended up using about 1/3 cup of corn syrup. Forming the coconut/corn syrup in to balls wasn't as easy as I anticipated I followed the directions for topping with chocolate. Next time, I will attempt to dip the candy in the chocolate to get better coverage.

Cream Cheese Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
This recipe offers a yummy change-up to good 'ole brownie mix brownies. I happen to like the brownies from a mix, but this offers that hard-to-beat combination of cream cheese and chocolate. I made the recipe just as printed. However, I opted to leave off the frosting and don't think they lacked anything because of it.

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I'm sorry to say that the results from this recipe were a bit of a disappointment. I used a Krusteaz cornbread mix which, all things considered, makes pretty good corn muffins. I chopped up the hotdogs but otherwise followed the recipe faithfully. Even though the muffins were thoroughly baked, the hotdogs had kind of a just-out-of-the-package flavor. This just didn't fill the bill for me.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
These are a great way to take care of a peanut butter craving. The cookies have a nearly perfect crunch-to-chewy ratio. I substituted butter for the margarine (my only alteration to the original recipe). Lots of peanut flavor. I baked these for 9 minutes and they turned out really well. A great way to fill your cookie jar!
