Ham Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I read the reviews listing these as too dry, so I made a couple of changes when I prepared them for my family's dinner. I used 3/4 cup of sour cream instead of milk, and then added 1/4 cup of milk to really juice things up. I also added a pinch of garlic powder for extra kick. These go wonderfully with a country breakfast or dinner!

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Absolutely great! I made this exactly as directed, though I didn't need 12 eggs to produce 1-1/2 cups of egg whites. (As for those of you who hesitate to throw out yolks - save them! I saved four of the yolks I used and made a delicious vanilla custard to fill the cake with.) The cake baked up in three layers just fine; took about half an hour. I filled with vanilla custard and strawberry slices and then let it chill for an hour. Creamy, tender and tasty! A summer treat! Thanks for sharing!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
It was pretty sweet, but nice and dense, too. It's not as much a breakfast muffin as a healthy dessert muffin, which is exactly what I needed! To get a more dessert-y feel to it, I added 1tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract. I also sprinkled sugar on the tops before I baked, which gave me a nice crunchy crust. Yum!

Jack's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
These were absolutely great! Instead of just pouring the oats in, I ground them to a chunky flour in my food processor. I also used milk chocolate chips and caramel pieces, which resulted in a chocolatey, nutty, toffee-studded cookie. Fantastic! My whole team adored them. :]

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Delicious! I fried these in a skillet instead of a deep frier, and it turned out just as good. The only alteration I made was to add a little garlic salt into the batter. The contrast with the sweet coconut was a real knockout!

Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
These were great! Here are a few tips: you can throw in some spices with the sweet pancake batter, like salt, a pinch of red pepper or garlic. To get the batter to stick to your onion rings, put some dry pancake mix in a plate and, as soon as you cut your rings, dust them with the dry powder. Then, the batter will stick to them better. Make sure your oil is very hot, or your rings will get soggy! To get the coating on your ring thin (so it'll be crispy) just hold it on a fork and tap the fork a few times to get the excess off. These are easy, cheap and delicious!

Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
I gave this cake as a gift to a friend who's sick. It went over amazingly! Here are the changes I made: I mixed a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon into the batter itself, and used pecans instead of walnuts. I also doubled the amount of cinnamon-sugar filling. When the cake was done, I made a caramel sauce on the stove and sprinkled the top with pecans. (Just melt down about a half bag of wrapped caramels with a couple of tablespoons of heavy cream.) It was absolutely delicious! Kept for days and delighted my friend.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Yum, yum, yum! I didn't have enough bananas to amount to the recipe requirement, so I halved the recipe, and it worked great! I added 3/4 cup chopped pecans to the batter, as well as 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. I baked it for 30 minutes on 350, and then covered with tin foil and baked for 15 more minutes to keep the top from burning. That did the trick! This bread is moist, flavorful and yummy!

Favorite Corn Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I'm giving this five stars because it didn't exactly require adjustments, but I found a few to be pretty helpful! Here are the changes I made: add 2 tbsp honey to the wet mix, use 1 tsp salt, substitute butter for shortening. That was it! This rose beautifully and has a nice golden color, as well as a crispy crust and tender crumb. We love it with our chili!

Peanut Butter Cornflake Crunch Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
Very, very good! I mixed in toasted, lightly salted peanuts. They were a major hit! Oh, and as others have said: DEFINITELY half the cornflakes!

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
Pretty good. I melted the butter beforehand as well, and there was still one teeny tiny crumbly spot - still wasn't bad! Keep an eye on this because it will burn quickly. All in all it's a pretty good dessert, though not the cobbler I'd use for the 4th of July.

Vidalia Sweet Onion Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
Followed exactly save for a couple of things: I sauteed the onions first to eliminate some crunch, and used mild cheddar instead of swiss and parmesan. Awesome party dip!

Sweet Vidalia Onion Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
Very awesome! This is basically a very onion-y quiche, so I treated it to some of the more traditional quiche spices while throwing it together: a teeny bit of nutmeg for depth, and a smidge of paprika. I made a few other changes as well: I made a little extra crust and baked this in a jelly roll dish; switched out swiss cheese for the cheddar and used a little bit more onion than called for. This was a mild, flavorful dish with some very complex flavors. Awesome and filling!

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
This was rich and does best after chilling for about two hours. I chose not to blend the raspberry sauce in; rather, I layered them in petit little glasses. My guests really liked this, but I thought it was lacking something typical of mousses. Still, it's light and airy, perfect for a summer dessert.

Pineapple Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I mixed a little flaked coconut in with the pineapple, and left a little bit of brown sugar at the bottom of the pan. This turned out juicy, gooey and delicious!

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
This has become my standard recipe. These cookies come out fantastic - just like they're from a bakery! I mixed mini chips and regular sized chips just to give it a fun texture. They turned out great!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
Absolutely delicious! I didn't need very much, so I thirded the recipe, and it still turned out beautifully. The only alterations I made were adding a teaspoon of vanilla and (as others have said) a little pumpkin pie spice. It was wonderful! Very moist!

Lemon Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
This is a great recipe. It's fast, easy and it doesn't fail! I've made it for a couple of goodie days in a pinch now, and it's turned out beautifully each time. The only tip I can offer is, as someone said above, to make sure that your cream cheese is entirely soft before you begin the mixing. As well, this pie is great to play with - I added some blueberries, and it turned out yummy!

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Awesome! I halved the recipe for the crust and it still turned out great (used premade crust for the other one.) I did pit the cherries by hand, and mashed them a little in the sauce pan. While boiling them, it seemed to me that there was going to be too much juice to thicken up properly, so I drained off a little to use as ice cream sauce. After that, it thickened up very nicely, though only after boiling for quite some time - ten minutes or so? And then simmering a little more. It was a huge hit, great consistency, awesome taste and kept well for a few days! Enjoy!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
I used currants instead of raisins, and tossed in some chopped pecans and dried cranberries for a little extra crunch and tang respectively. I also used cinnamon, cloves and pumpkin pie spice, and all butter. An absolutely perfect, delicious cookie!
