Cream Wafers

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
Best. Cookies. Ever! BUT...there is no way in the world this would make 5 dozen cookies. I was lucky to squeeze out 2 dozen. I doubled the icing and I'm so glad I did. This recipe takes forever because the dough gets too warm so quickly that I had to put the "scraps" back in the fridge to set up for 15 min at a time to be able to work with it. It's a pain, but oh so worth it! I believe mine were a little too big (I used a shot glass to cut them), but they're still awesome. My mom used to make them waaayyy back in the day and mine tasted (and smelled) just like hers. They brought me right back to my childhood.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Fantastic! I'm kicking myself for not pouring the extra syrup from the bottom of the pan onto the bread before the pan cooled, though! SO good, you guys. You won't be disappointed.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Wonderful. I added a few extra chicken-friendly seasonings, but other than that, I stuck to the original recipe. It's a definite keeper. Thanks!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Very very good! I followed the recipe to a T. Make sure you secure the chicken well so the cheese doesn't get a chance to sneak out. This is an easy not-just-for-company recipe. Thanks!

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
FANtastic! This was the first pie I've ever baked. My husband now thinks I'm a culinary genius. I used more cinnamon in place of the nutmeg (didn't have nutmeg on hand) and yes, it was runny at first, but it gets better as it sits. I used a frozen pie shell...kept it frozen until I filled it and preheated a cookie sheet to bake it on. Thanks so much for sharing. Fabulous!

Bacon Cheeseburger Roll-Up

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
This was just okay. It had a good taste, but after following the instuctions to a tee and rolling it up, it looked like I'd shaped the beef into a tube and covered it with the dough....we couldn't see the dough inside the roll once it was cooked. Weird. I'd make it again, but it won't be on my favorites list. It IS a very kid-friendly recipe, though. My 15 mo. old went nuts over it.

English Muffin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This is the exact recipe my aunt has been using for years and we go crazy whenever she gives us a loaf. It's fantastic. Some tips for beginner bakers: This bread is perfect for beginners...it's very simple and there is no kneeding involved. You can use an instant read thermometer when warming your milk in a saucepan. It just needs to be somewhere between 120 and 130 degrees. Crisco works well for greasing the pans. Don't use a hand mixer to mix the dough..it's far too sticky. Use a Kichenaid mixer with a dough hook (switch to the dough hook AFTER the second round of flour goes in). If you don't have a Kitchenaid, you can use a cuisinart with the dough blade...it works just as well. If you have neither, you can mix it by hand, but that's sort of a pain. After you divide the dough into the pans (and before it starts to rise), sprinkle a little more cornmeal on top for more of an english muffin look. The bread is best toasted! We usually eat it with just butter, pb &j, or cream cheese. Oh..and I bake it at 425 instead of 400 because I like a crispier crust.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
FANTASTIC!! I just made this as a prelude to our Thanksgiving dinner. I didn't have garlic salt, so I used garlic powder and added a little more salt. I chopped the artichokes pretty fine (we have picky eaters and I wanted to "hide" the chokes so they would eat it). I used freshly shredded parmasan and ramano cheeses. I also added a little bit of grated parmasan on top. It turned out creamy and delicious! People gobbled it up and I was really proud of it. It's a certain keeper in my recipe box. THANKS!

A Simply Perfect Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
This was my first turkey ever and it turned out great. My husband said it was the best turkey he had ever had! The only problem I had was that the turkey didn't get done in the time it should have (5 hours for a stuffed 21 lb bird). I believe that is from opening the oven every half hour to baste. I thought it might be too simple of a recipe, but really, it turned out very moist and delicious. Even the leftovers remained moist. I'll probably adjust it just a little next time..perhaps putting some fresh sage and butter between the skin and the breast. Great recipe, thanks!

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Wow..these are VERY sweet but very good. My husband has a huge sweet tooth, so he loved them. I made just a few adjustments. I used butter instead of shortening (I didn't have any shortening) and I used half creamy, half chunky peanut butter for the cookies themselves. I did have to add some milk to the frosting to make it more spreadable. I learned after the first batch that I was making the cookie balls way too big. They spread out a lot (but that probably has everything to do with using butter instead of shortening). I made them a lot smaller because a giant cookie with that much sweetness could be a little much. Either way, it's a good change from the normal old peanut butter cookies. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
This was my very first time baking any kind of cookie and WOW!! I was beyond pleased with the results. The cooking time of 12 minutes was spot on with my oven. The only thing I changed was I added a teaspoon of salt, a tablespoon of baking powder and a tablespoon of vanilla (per the suggestions of other users). The cookies were PERFECT! I have a feeling I'll never make a different chocolate chip cookie...it would be very hard to top this one. The recipe was so easy, too! It's perfect for beginner bakers. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! GREAT JOB! *Edited to Add* I just had to add this. I took my batch of cookies (the entire huge batch) to a family football party and they were GONE within an hour. One of my cousins ate five in a row! I gave my stepdad his own little baggy full and he ran them out to his car and hid them immediately. These were obviously a HUGE hit and I'll be making them again and again. Oh..and some users said there were too many chocolate chips. I'd have to disagree with that. It seems like a lot (and I nearly didn't put the last 1/2 cup in), but it's totally worth it. There's several chips in each bite. Delicious!

The Best Meatloaf I've Ever Made

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
My husband and I (who are NOT big meatloaf fans) loved the heck out of this recipe. It was painfully simple and simply delicious. It's not too ketchupy, which I really like. I might add some seasonings (perhaps an Italian blend) the next time around just to experiment with the taste a little. It was very moist and a certain keeper in my recipe box. Thanks for sharing it!
