Sweet Onion Broccoli Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Made this as a side for the "Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf" recipe on this site. Very, very good. I took a few liberties with the recipe based on our tastes - I think we might have found it a bit bland otherwise. Adjusted the recipe to make a 9 x 13 casserole and tossed in shredded sharp cheddar, garlic powder and crushed red pepper flakes. Turned out great!

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
My oh my, was this good! I realize there are over 660 reviews for this cake, but I just had to put my two cents in. Made the cake for our weekly family dinner and most of my family had two pieces! We finished up the rest last night and sat there scraping our plates for every last irish-creamy-morsel. I used a full cup of irish cream for the cake, omitted the pecans and threw in a handful of mini chocolate chips, just for the heck of it. I love the suggestions of many for glazing the cake, but knowing me, the neat trick would end in disaster. So I patiently and lovingly glazed the cake with a pastry brush - took about twenty minutes and gave me time to clean up my mess in the kitchen. (Definitely not a dessert to make when you're in a hurry.) This was soooo good. Thank you!

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
I have made this three times in two weeks because my family cannot get enough of it! I skip the pecan layer due to dietary restrictions, and really don't think it needs it, anyway. The cream cheese makes it so deliciously moist, and we love it right out of the oven with a little butter. We even sliced it and made it into french toast topped with sliced, fresh bananas. Sooo good!

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
It may have been some 14 years since I've had tuna salad, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't taste like this. Although, while I was making it, I had two cats sitting on the kitchen floor looking at me like they thought I was making something for them. Did my cats think it was tuna...?? Anyway, It LOOKS like tuna salad, tastes pretty good and is a great idea for lunches. I added some Old Bay and diced onion. If I make it again I will decrease the mustard a bit and try it with tangy mayo.

Margarita Tube Cake

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Did not have triple sec so I used grand marnier instead. Otherwise made as stated. It was good - maybe not the best ever, but very good. Really, really moist. Smelled wonderful. I didn't care for the glaze, so if I make again I will tweak that a little. All around good recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Made this for my dad (carrot cakes' biggest fan). He loved it! I ended up making a few changes, mostly because I was so short on time. I used a bag & a half of "matchstick" carrots - about five cups. Gave them a rough chop & soaked them with the raisins in pineapple juice, brown sugar and about 1/4 cup rum for an hour. While everything was soaking, I prepared the batter. Added a 1/2 tsp of baking POWDER and substituted 1/2 cup apple cinnamon applesauce for 1/2 cup of oil, as suggested. Omitted walnuts b/c my dad can't eat them. The batter was so thick that it was slowing down my mixer! I added all the liquid that was left in the carrot-soaking bowl (about a cup), which made the batter quite runny. Folded in the carrots, pineapple & raisins. Baked for about 50 minutes in two 9 inch rounds. Came out perfectly. Super moist & full of flavor. I also had enough batter to make six (heaping) cupcakes. I baked those for about 20 minutes. Used the cream cheese frosting recipe found on this site for the frosting. Will make this again & again. Thank you!!

Kentucky Tomato Soup

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
My husband said this should be called "Robust Garden Tomato Soup". It was very good, (we ate the whole pot!) but it just wasn't what we expected. We loved the fresh tomato taste, so I will make again and tweak it so its not so "garden" like and maybe reduce the amount of coffee. I used 3/4 cup Double Black Diamond coffee from Green Mountain and I think it was just too strong.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
Fabulous little cheddar bay nuggets of goodness. I've never cared for store-bought baking mix so I used the "Easy Biscuit Mixture" recipe as suggested in the footnotes of this recipe. Total biscuit perfection. They look as delectable as they taste.

Boston Cream Pie Minis

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Made this for a superbowl party and, although it tasted wonderful, my execution of this recipe left something to be desired. I ended up salvaging everything by gently crumbling up the cupcakes and layering the cake, pudding and frosting into a trifle dish. A success out of a total mess! Will definitely make again when I have more time and patience!

Made this exactly as stated and it was excellent. Used it for "Best Carrot Cake Ever" recipe found on this site. Perfect cream-cheesy goodness. Perfect on the carrot cake. Thank you!!

Mexican Sour Cream Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
I made this recipe for a tex-mex dinner party. I left out the chile peppers b/c my mother can't take the heat and cooked the rice according to package directions using vegetable stock. It was a HUGE hit and everyone wished I'd made a bigger batch. Next time, I will adjust the recipe for a larger casserole dish. Hubby suggested making a meal out of it by adding black beans and vegan chicken strips. We'll make it spicy next time, too.

Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Wow - ten stars. My family devoured this meatloaf, saying repeatedly that I'd outdone myself. My father exclaimed that it was the best dinner I've ever made (hubby and I cook for them almost every weekend!). I added half a packet of onion soup mix and a shake or two of garlic powder. I also made a vegetarian version for myself, using meatless "crumbles" and "bacon". Although a bit time consuming, making my family so happy was well worth the effort. Thank you for such a great idea!

Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Yum! This soup changed my opinion of asparagus! I realized that it's not the flavor of asparagus that I don't like, its the unappetizing way its always been presented to me. The soup is a wonderful base recipe and we plan to put in regular rotation during asparagus season!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
A total hit! Followed the recipe exactly and my family RAVED over these pancakes. Just as good if not better than a popular restaurant chain's seasonal pumpkin pancakes. Will make these all year long. Thank you!

Southern Style Banana Split Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Took this to a dinner party last night for dessert. Everyone liked it, but we all agreed that it needed more banana and more chocolate. I omitted the nuts due to dietary restrictions. Only used 8oz of whipped topping-16oz seemed like way to much. I also only used a 6oz jar of maraschino cherries - again, I think 16oz would have just been too many. Overall, it was good, but I will look for a different dessert recipe next time.

Chicken Tequila Fettuccini

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This dish is excellent! I have to admit that I changed it quite a bit, but not because I thought I could improve upon it. I used vegetable broth instead of chicken stock. Morningstar "chicken" stips instead of actual chicken. Substituting the chicken dramatically changes how the reciepe is prepared. Other than that, I followed the recipe and it turned out fabulous. A great alternative to traditional Italian pasta dishes. Will make again & again. Thank you for such a great idea!

Penne in Vodka Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
So, I've made this recipe twice, sort of. The first time, I got all set to start cooking and realized what I thought was a bottle of vodka was really flavored rum. I made the recipe as stated, but substituted white wine for the vodka and it was yummy. We finally bought a bottle of vodka and I made this again last night. Wow wow wow. Wonderful, velvety rich sauce. At hubby's request I added onion, mushroom and vegetarian chicken strips. Great sauce. Great recipe. Thank you!

Cottage Cheese Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I have been trying to make a meatless meat loaf for my husband all our married life and finally - success! He loved this recipe. I followed other reviewers suggestions and adjusted the recipe a bit (less oil, more cornflakes, no walnuts, added frozen chopped spinach, garlic powder & crushed red pepper flakes). I also had to bake it for about an hour & twenty minutes. We will make this again & again. Thank you for a great idea!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Wow. I had no idea this would be so good! I could have sat down with the pot and big spoon and chowed down. I made this for a vegetarian friend who just returned home from the hospital. I added one small, diced sweet potato because I had it on hand and thought it would be good. Also a touch of chile powder and oregano, and only one can of beans. Our friend absolutely loved this and I will definitely make it again!

Blizzard Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
Thought this was okay... I'm not sure how you'd fit a whole gallon of ice cream plus 12 ounces of whipped topping into one 9x13 dish. I used a half gallon of vanilla frozen yogurt and maybe 6 ounces of whipped topping and it filled my 9x13 to the rim. This recipe didn't "knock my socks off", but it's pretty hard to go wrong with ice cream and oreos. Would probably be a great addition to a summer cookout.
