The Cake That Doesn't Last

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
I made this cake last night (exactly as written, only without nuts) and put 'The Last Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe You'll Truly Ever Need' on it and gave it to a friend today, and she gave me a slice to bring home. Yum!! The cake is delicious, and the icing adds even more to it. I think it will be even better the next time I make it if I add walnuts (and maybe a little extra crushed pineapple or chopped apples??) I can't wait to make another one of these! Thanks for a great recipe Jenny!

Best Ever Rugelach

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I was afraid these were going to be too sweet, but they were perfect!! I make the recipe exactly as written but without the orange marmalade. These are more like a pastry than a cookie. My daughter who normally doesn't like nuts or raisins loved them!! She suggested I try making them using chocolate chips...This might work with chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts...hummm??? Thank you for a great recipe, Sandy!!

Lemon Sponge Pie I

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
This is a recipe my dad gave me this week that my great grandmother used to make. The only difference is her recipe only called for two eggs & egg yokes and 1 cup of sugar, so if you don't have enough eggs, don't fret, it works with just two!! I made it with only two eggs and used an extra deep pie shell which I really didn't need to do. Next time I'll try it with four eggs. It really is a delicious pie and very very easy to make. I couldn't believe it used so few ingredients and turned out so nice. It looks very liquidy when you pour it into the shell, but it sets nicely as it cooks. I can see where it gets the name "Lemon Sponge Pie" as it is deliciously lemony tasting, custardy on the bottom and very spongey on top. We really enjoyed it.

End of Summer Vegetable Casserole

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I made this for our Memorial Day picnic and , although my parents loved it, it wasn't a great hit with my grown children, mostly because of the noticable egg in it. I took the advice of the other cooks and didn't sauté the veggies, and they were just right. I think it is definitely a recipe that can be adjusted easily to be a pleaser...maybe a layer of cream of broccoli soup, rather than the egg/flour mixture? I think it would be even better if not for the noticable egg.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
I dissolved the sugar by boiling 1/6 cup of water on the stovetop and adding 1/3 cup of sugar to make a syrup (8 servings-sized salad), and cooled it in the fridge before adding to the salad dressing. This worked out fine. I also used extra virgin olive oil in place of vegetable oil and added a large can of manderine oranges (drained), and two sliced kiwis and lots of strawberries. It was a delicious salad and a big hit with our family. I'll be making this for guests!!

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
I was a little leary about trying this cake, but it turned out great!! It was also DE-licious, thanks to all the great tips from others. I substituted 2 tbsps. of cornstarch for 2 tbsps. of flour for each cup of flour, sifted my dry ingredients twice, used cake flour, 2 tsps. of pure vanilla extract, made sure to cream the butter and sugar well and then creamed it well again with each egg yolk added, lined my cake pans with parchment paper, and tapped the pans on the counter to rid any air bubbles prior to cooking. It was the perfect yellow cake recipe. Thanks David!!

Pizzelles II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I made these for Christmas, and they were the best Pizzelles I've ever tasted. They were light and crispy. Best of all, they didn't stick to the Pizzelle iron at all. I followed the recipe exactly, and they were perfect. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I made this for the 1st time ever today for Thanksgiving. It was a huge hit! The topping is delicious!! I only used half the sugar in the sweet potato casserole and it was sweet enough. I think it would have been too sweet if I had added the full amount. It was awesome! This will become a tradition for sure. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Baked Pineapple Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I double the recipe and only use 1/2 cup sugar for a 12 serving-sized casserole, because the pineapple juice sweetens it also. I also add two slices of bread. Make sure to cut your bread in small cubes. It's delicious cold too, like a dessert! Thank you Cheryl!!

Peanut Butter Pie III

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
This is a good pie and very quick and easy to make. However, it is more like a chocolate pie than a peanut butter pie.

RamJam Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2002
I've tried many marinade recipes for chicken, but this is my favorite. Our family has enjoyed it many, many times and will continue to do so. I went to print it for my aunt and couldn't find the recipe in my recipe box but, to my surprise, the name was changed! Thanks for sharing this one Laura!

A Marinade To Die For

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2001
I didn't really care for this marinade. I'm sure it's just that we all have different tastes and this just wasn't one I would try again.
