Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
i tried this recipe as written first and really disliked it. the taste of the shortening was just too artificial for me. i salvaged it with some butter and cream cheese but ended up with way more than i bargained for. the next time i used this, i used all butter instead of shortening, halved the recipe, added half a cup less sugar, and full tsp. salt. sooo much better. it was delicious! this will be my go to recipe from now on.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
i took the advice of one of the reviewers and used buttermilk, 2 tsps of baking powder, and 1/2 tsp of baking soda. end result: TO DIE FOR! i have never been a biscuit fanatic, but when i took one bite of these, i knew i was hooked! i had some pretty awesome cookies in the house and i still decided to have a biscuit, with nothing on it, for dessert. that's how good they are. try this or live to regret it.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
i was afraid to make these at first because i had a dinner party to bake for and it seemed like a bad time to try a new recipe. but after all the stellar reviews, i caved. boy, am i glad i did! these were intensely good! i made a few small changes. i added a bit less than a tbsp. of instant coffee, used milk chocolate chips to offset the dark chocolatey flavor, subtracted a 1/4 a cup of sugar from the 3 that were called for, and used a half cup of light brown sugar in place of some of the white sugar. they came out flawless. these perfect, fudgey squares restored my faith in the homemade brownie.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
these were alright. nothing special. the taste was good, but the consistency was much too doughy for me. it helped get rid of leftover pumpkin , but it's not likely i will make these again.

Powdered Sugar Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
i love these cookies! they are moist and flavorful. i couldn't give it five stars however because i had to alter it a bit. it needed more powdered sugar, more salt, more vanilla, and i used a bit of granulated sugar for texture and butter instead of shortening. but with all the changes made they came out perfectly. you have to take them out right before they start to brown though, and i refridgerated the dough for about an hour and a half before rolling them which made it A LOT easier. i'd recommend pressing them down just a bit instead of putting them in the oven as balls because you get a better sense of how much they will spread and they come out a little bigger. will be using the changed recipe to make holiday cookies again and again.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
potentially good pie. the sauce was nice when i first tasted it, but i felt it was lacking, so i added a few things. i put in some vanilla, more cinnamon and spices, a splash or two of apple cider and lemon juice, and some more sugar and flour because it became a bit too liquidy. it was very good! tasted just like a caramel apple only more interesting. be warned that if you use a different kind of apple, you WILL need more. they cook down sooo much. this recipe is worth a try, and i will probably use it again.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
i had high hopes for this recipe what with all the wonderful reviews. sadly, this just did not work out for me. it was very dense and slid to the bottom of the pan, and although i did not add extra liquid, it was still way to gooey. maybe, it was just my poor fortune this time around, but i still doubt i'd use this recipe again.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
the base for what could be a very good pie. definitely needs improvement though. when i made it as directed, it had very little taste. i added more pumpkin, spices, and even a bit of brown sugar, it was much better. i actually had some pumpkin butter on hand, which, because of its concentrated pumpkin flavor, helped majorly. i would use this recipe again, but only with the adjustments i made.

Absolutely the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
i made these for a baby shower. It wasn't really what i would call "absolutely the best". Then again, it seems my standards may be too high because everyone raved about them and they were the only dessert touched at the party. Perhaps its just me. :)
