Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
Wow! It had been a while since I made a crust and my husband said tonight that it was almost better than the peach filling, :-) I haven't read all the reviews, but if there is any there that are not raving about this, they did something wrong. Beautifully golden and the bottom crust was as crispy as the top. Awesome flaky texture!

Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
I didn't want to be at the stove all morning, so I 1/2d the recipe. Added 1/2 c flour, use applecider ving to make the buttermilk, used molasses since I didn't have brown sugar (left off the syrup). Smells great, we shall see.

Million-Dollar Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
I loved smelling this cake bake. I was trying to get the boys to bed and all they could ask was, "what are you making" and "can I have some when I wake up?" My boss likes pound cake so I thought I would make it for her birthday cake, I am glad my bundt pans are on the smaller side so I could make a small cake for us, too. I guess the boys are really like me, I had to have a piece, or two, before going to bed. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Now I just have to be sure to wake up before the boys do to keep their mits out of the cake for work.

Blueberry Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
I love this recipe! I will use the xtra milk this time. As for the topping-I use a bunt pan and put 1/2 in the bottom of the pan so it becomes a wonderful candied layer! Yum! and the other 1/2 on the top. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
WOW! Made a bundt bread for a luncheon at church and everybody loved it. I had to pre-plan (changed servings to 32 and made 1 bread in the bundt pan (baked for 55 mins.) and 12 muffins (baked for 15) -I couldn't get away with not having any for breakfast). I made it just as written and decided to leave out the walnuts (saved them for my oatmeal cookies). Thank you for sharing a great recipe. I love that it is heavy on the zucchini, too.

Surprise Cake

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
Well. I just put the batter in the oven and licked the spoon-it's got a zip! Wow! Cannot wait to taste it. My husband is pretty good with pinpointing different spices when I try new things-we shall see... hehehe. I was impressed by how quickly everything went together and mixed smoothly by hand. (I'll let you know what he says).

Aggression ( Oatmeal ) Cookies

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
WOW! To those who had the misfortune of these not turning out, I am sorry. I can't believe how good these are and how simple they are to make with kids. For our oven, 8 mins. on the button was it. Yum! I think I am going to use this for the crust of a cheese cake later-maybe a butter pecan version. Thanks for sharing. Oh, I added 1/2 t. salt and, for me, it was just the salty sweet we like.

Molasses Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
These are great cookies. Following all the suggestions: I used butter (3/4 c), added an egg, and halved the salt. The aftertaste Pchotrani is talking about is the cloves. I tasted it too. Maybe next time I'll try allspice or nutmeg (nutmeg doesn't smell right in combination with the cinnamon and ginger but I'll see what I get). I checked other molasses cookies and the spice ranged from these three, Cin. Gin. and Nut, Cin. Gin. and All, and even Cin. Gin. Cream of Tartar... We'll see... I baked them 9 1/2 minutes and they are perfect! Thank you.

Great Easy Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
These always turn out beautifully. As soon as I spill the beans that I am making waffles they are dancing, literally, in anticipation. This morning my husband was looking for a sweet topping and the boys, with my help, ate all the normal ones. I suggested ice cream to be silly, he did it. He took 2 waffles and made a sandwich and said it was "GREAT!" So breakfast and dessert all rolled into one! Sounds better than the strawberry jelly and vanilla yogurt I had. Next time... :9)

Sour Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Okay, I give it a 4 on flavor, but the consistency of the frosting needs more body. I added more p. sugar trying to get it there but it flowed over the edges of the cake. I would love it if it had a little bit thicker feel to it. I will tweak it next time and share my results with others that may be looking for a thicker version of this great taste. It may just be to reduce liquids... I don't know how to do that... :0) but I think that's what I would need to give it that last star. Thanks. ******* REVISION: 10.3.10 I let the sour cream sit over a bowl on cheese cloth over night. It did the trick! If you want it to be a little less fluffy, add some of the liquid back in. That did the trick for the last start from me. Thanks!!!! Great recipe!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
I have been looking for a great recipe that I could have as a base for a bunch of variations; this is it! Added the extra cup of oats and the t. vanilla. I didn't have chips of any kind so I added 1 c. chopped walnuts and 3T. instant coffee granules and 3/4 t. Saigon Cinnamon. Cannot wait until my husband tastes them. I used heaping regular spoon-fulls and made 51 good sized cookies. For a party I would make them littler and get more out of the batch. WOW! Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

Make-Ahead Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
I would give it 10 STARS!!! Oh, my, where do I start? Okay, I must admit I didn't have everything so there was a little bit of improv going on but this is a great recipe. We used a food processor - too much to cut by hand for me. We thought 2 onions were WAY TOO MUCH so we used 1/2 of a large red onion and the end result was still oniony enough. We left the quantities alone for the rest of the veggies. For the dressing we followed as written with a few clarifications/substitutions - apple cider vine. (sweet and tangy), celery salt, mustard seed, tarragon, garlic salt and ground ginger. I let it boil for a minute even though the sugar dissolved long before that. WOW! I can't wait to make this again. HUGE DELIGHT for the taste buds! Thanks! Thanks! THANKS!

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
Okay, I read all the reviews that said "more flavor", and after making the chocolate variety (w/ the oil sub.) and the texture being great but it not being chocolatey at all... I thought -they can't all be wrong- so I increased the sugar to 2 c. and WHAT A MESS! The whole thing went FLAT and it was like a sugar cookie topped cake and the middle was too moist! My suggestion (and my husbands) kick up the flavor DON'T touch the rest of the recipe (oh, except for the oil sub. - that's a keeper! )

Coffee Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Good cookies. I think one things people might be doing wrong is using oil? for shortening - I used butter and HELLO they were fine. I did bump the flour up to 1 cup - everything else was great. I have found that ANY COOKIE baked until the edges are golden are ALWAYS too done and end up hard. I figure when the start to firm up when you touch the tops - just like cakes - they are done. A trick a friend of mine shared with me (from her Grandmother) is when cookies get hard, put them in a plastic bag with a piece of white bread. I don't know the science behind it or how they figured it out but IT WORKS! Soft cookies again. I added 1/3 c. cocoa and yummy. I got 33 cookies. Thanks for sharing.

Lemon-Raspberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
YUMMY!!! Didn't have buttermilk but used the 1 Tb. lemon juice trick and WOW! even more lemony goodness! Made these for Valentines Day for my boys and Man - big hit! 400 seemed a bit hot for me, so I baked them at 375. The bottom and sides were perfect when the top was just getting golden. I had some cream cheese frosting and delighted myself with that... Would be great for a bridal brunch or baby shower treat. UPDATE: I baked up mini's(at 325 for 20 min.) for a baby shower and rather than mix the berries in, I put a small piece in each muffin and topping with frosting. Thank you so much.

Polish Sweet Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
Our family roll recipe from here on out! I have a bread machine, but it's packed up, so I mixed the order up ... the yeast needs sugar to proof so I put it in with the milk, butter, sugar. After it dissolved, I added vanilla and sea salt then the flour. I had no problem getting it to rise every step. 20 minutes in the oven... like butter! Yummy! Thank you! If you don't agree you're dong it wrong.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Would do more stars if I could! HEAVEN in a bite size treat! Only baked for 9 1/2 minutes and they were perfectly moist when they cooled. My son loved the visual texture of the cookie and could not stop himself from sneaking them every chance he got! Thank you. Can't wait to see what the ladies think at church! LOL! Thanks again!

Sweet Potato Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
This was a great recipe. I had dried orange peel in the spice drawer so I put them in with the liquids and let them set for a while to moisten. Next time, I will puree the sweet potatoes - the pieces were still a bit big after I mashed them. Thanks for sharing - my 2 yr. old was wanting more as I put him to bed... Sweet Dreams!

Canadian Bacon Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I sauteed red onions, garlic, roasted red peppers, and mushrooms with the bacon (I used turkey) and added S & P & garlic salt - yum! Added milk (1-2 cups) to make a true cheese sauce and used Italian style diced toms after everything was mixed together and topped it with shredded cheese...... Okay base but needs all this to get it to 5 stars. SMELLS Good! TASTES GREAT!

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
Thank you for sharing! I followed others and reduced flour to 2 c. and added 1 c. oats, and swapped applesauce for oil. I love Chinese 5-spice for pumpkin recipes, so I used that along with an extra t. cinnamon and nutmeg. I used 2 whole eggs and had an extra egg white from today that I added too. Will keep this a secret in my house!!!
