Six Week Bran Muffins

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
OK, First let me say that I cut this recipe by 6 to get the desired 24 muffins. I also added 1 cup of raisins to the boiling water, and added 1 teaspoon of baking powder in addition to the baking soda. They were amazingly good! I thought my kids would turn up their noses...instead, they devoured them and asked for more! These are the most moist and best tasting bran muffins I've ever made. This recipe is a keeper!

Indian Style Sheekh Kabab

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
Excellent recipe that also works well with a ground beef and sausage mixture. Try using flat skewers (if you can find them) and the meat will not spin when you try to turn it on the grill. And as someone else mentioned...chop ingredients very fine.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
I didn't have any butter so I substituted butter-flavor shortening and had to really whisk it, as it does not melt as fast as chocolate...but it turned out great! I also made this in the microwave as others suggested. This glaze set up perfectly...not too hard, not too soft. You have to work pretty fast because it will set up quickly, however. I made a chocolate peanut butter cake and I got tons of compliments on the glaze itself. The color of your glaze will be the color of the chocolate that you use. I did "work" the glaze onto the cake and so it was not super-shiny but it was still beautiful. This recipe is a winner and a great substitute when you haven't any whipping cream to make a ganache.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
This recipe gets 5 stars because it really is easy. They are also quite yummy. I didn't have almonds so I used pecans and I also added a half of a cup of bran to up the fiber a bit. They are super chocolatey. I took someone's suggestion and put my can of milk in a bowl of hot water while I assembled the rest of the ingredients. It was much easier to pour and incorporate. I will make these again!

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
Great when you want something chocolate and fast. I added a dash of salt before cooking to help bring out flavors. I also added 1 T butter along with the vanilla after it was cooked to make it a little fuller tasting. Super easy.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
This recipe was very easy and very tastey as well. I used applesauce instead of butter in the muffin itself and they came out moist and tender. (I never mix muffins more than absolutely necessary.) I also added chocolate chips because, well, I love chocolate. I tweaked the topping a bit by adding more flour and some white sugar and leaving out the cinnamon. (All I had was spreadable margarine so I added the extra flour and sugar in an attempt to keep the topping from sinking into the muffin...it worked beautifully.) The kids gobbled these up.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This recipe was easy, and very yummy. I used butter flavored vege. shortening, instead of the butter. I cut the salt to 1/2 teaspoon, upped the chocolate chips to 1 1/2 cups, and added 1/4 teaspoon baking powder. I mixed the dough by traditional bowl and spoon method (not in a mixer) and let the dough chill for the time it took to preheat the oven (about 10 minutes). I baked them on ungreased fiberglass baking mats.I had no problem with the cookies spreading. I'll make these again.

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
Couldn't believe how well this worked and how fabulous it tasted! I used Splenda and it came out perfect. I made the strawberry and even my kids (who don't like strawberry ice cream) gobbled it up.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
This has the consistency and flavor that cream cheese frosting should have. I make this for my awesome carrot cake and it is enough to frost 3 layers, top, and sides, as well as adding a bit of decoration. Simply the best recipe out there!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
Easy recipe with amazing results every time! The only thing I do differently is to half the amount of topping and leave out the cinnamon so that it doesn't compete with the blueberry flavor. Way yummy!

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This has been my no-fail pie crust recipe for more than 20 years. Simple and excellent. I use butter flavor shortening and the coldest water possible.

Tzatziki Sauce II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
The only thing I did differently was to add a splash of lemon juice. Yum! Make it ahead as it gets better with time. At least a couple of hours or overnight if you can make it a day ahead.

Peach Crisp III

Good recipe. I have made this with the granola and then also made it subbing oats for the granola when I was out and it was good either way.

April's Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I needed something last minute to take to a party. I had everything this called for so I mixed it all in the food processor. I did alter it a tiny bit. Since the recipe didn't specify what size of a jar for the roasted red peppers, I used about 1/2 cup. One of my blocks of cheese was 1/3 less fat. Also, I left out the worcestershire because I was in too big of a hurry to find it in my cubbard. I also threw in a teaspoon of dried parsley (more for look than flavor). The consistency of mine came out to be a very spreadable cheese that wouldn't hold shape so I just served it in a pretty dish. Everyone loved it! I will definitely make this again. It was delicious.

Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
I think the recipe should have mentioned that after you make the butter, you need to "wash" it to remove all of the butter milk, or it will spoil. My mom taught me to wash butter by draining off the milk liquids, then running COLD water into the jar and pressing the butter with the back of a spoon to release pockets of butter milk trapped inside of the butter. It takes several washings to get it completely clean. If you are eating all of the butter within a short amount of time, washing is not so crucial.

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
Very simple to make. I used the Wilton gel colors in the small jars and got the vivid colors I wanted. I didn't swirl the colors, but plopped them in one spoonful at a time as stated in the recipe. I really don't know why this wouldn't work just following the directions on the cake package and not taking the time to whip the egg whites and just leaving in the yolks.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This is the cookie I've been looking for all of my life! Crispy, chewy, chocolatey goodness. I added the 1/2 tsp of cream of tarter and they did crackle on top perfectly, but I've not made it without that addition so I can't say as if it made a difference. I make a ton of cookies and my family was simply blown away by these. You really are missing out if you haven't tried these.
