Classic Gingerbread Cutouts

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
This made a beautiful gingerbread house! I used the template on this website and did the recipe exactly as it says to here. It made a gingerbread house and quite a few large gingerbread people. This was so easy and looks pretty. :) A note though: the frosting recipe is a good one, but it must be used fresh. If you're making your house over several days time, then just make enough of the frosting for that day.

Holiday Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
I made three 5x3 loaves and one 9x5. I decreased the sugar to 2 cups, put the juice of one orange in a measuring cup, and filled it to the 3/4 cup mark with water, added the zest of the orange, used 1/4 cup of vegetable oil and 3/4 cup unsweetened homemade applesauce, and used 2 cups of unbleached flour and 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour. It was so yummy! Using the orange juice and zest gave it a really good flavor. My whole family loved it! I didn't put nuts or raisins in it because I don't like them.

Christmas Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
Decrease the sugar to 2 cups. I didn't use food coloring. Instead I folded in 1/2 c crushed peppermint candies and 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract. Yum!!

Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
I use 1 1/2 c of peanut butter, add 2 tsp of vanilla as I stir in the peanut butter, and use 10 c of Special K. On a tip from my grandma, I used 12 oz of chocolate chips and 12 oz of butterscotch chips. With those changes these are my favorite bars ever!

Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
So simple- and it tasted great! If other reviewers didn't like the egginess they may want to try adding another 8 oz package of cream cheese like I did. I had no problems and it tasted delicious. Thanks for this recipe!

Maryann's Upside Down Rhubarb Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
My family's been making this recipe ever since we found it at a potluck. We've found it's also very good with raspberries if you don't have any rhubarb. A tip: never, ever, ever use half and half in place of cream. The rhubarb will stay crunchy and sour and the whole thing will be soupy- inedible. I know this because my mother tried this once.

Chocolate Covered Blueberries

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
The taste of blueberries goes very well with chocolate. They turned out really well and my whole family liked them. Make sure the blueberries aren't cold. Mine were and they made the chocolate hard too soon. I just stuck the whole mixture in the microwave for about 30 seconds to re-melt it and it was fine. Sure the blueberries released some juice when they were warmed, but that didn't seem to do anything.

Clark Gable Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
These were great, fluffy pancakes! I substituted applesauce in place of oil- I always do in pancake recipes. I also added a little bit of vanilla to the milk mixture. This made exactly 10 pancakes using 1/4 c of batter for each. Thanks I'm definitely making these again!

Blueberry Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
I didn't feel like canning this, especially since it makes a very small amount, so I just refrigerated it in a freezer container. It seemed to work just as well. I also used frozen berries which didn't seem to affect the quality- it was very tasty! I made a PB&J with this for lunch and it was one of the best PB&Js I've ever had! My only complaint is that it doesn't spread very well. But if you zap it in the microwave for a while and mix it up, it makes a really good filling for crepes.

Better Than Sex Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
Yummiest cake ever! I don't just use the hot fudge, but also a jar of caramel topping. This is a great cake to bring to potlucks.

Eggnog French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
Instead of pumpkin pie spice, I just bought Pumpkin Spice Eggnog. I used whole grain white bread rather than French. My family loved this! It's a nice change of pace, and perfect for the holidays.

Goulash Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I'm vegetarian, but for some reason (the weather I guess?) I really wanted to eat some goulash. So this worked well- I just didn't use any ground beef. :] Easy.

Summer Bean Salad I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
Very good! It has a strong vinegar flavor, so I might cut back on that next time. I'm rating it five stars because I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I had to use canned tomatoes with green chilies and cilantro. I had no fresh tomatoes, bell peppers, green onions, or cilantro. Our pantry was running low, and this was the best recipe I could find for what we had. I'd like to try it with fresh ingredients next time, but it was still very good!

Kielbasa and Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
My mom and I have made this many times, and each time we change it a little bit. Sometimes we add some cooked penne, tomatoes, fennel seed, tomato sauce, etc., leaving out other ingredients (such as the Worcestershire). It's a really adaptable recipe and it's fun to make!

Cinnamon Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
Yum I could smell the cinnamon when they were baking. They turned out great and I could taste the cinnamon. I wanted something different but I was a little hesitant (chocolate/cinnamon- why try to fix something that's already good?), but they were delicious.

Crusty White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I didn't have any bread flour on hand, so I just used unbleached flour. It was yummy anyway!

My Favorite Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
These were so yummy and chewy! I only had one egg, so I used one egg and 1/4 cup of Egg Beaters egg substitute. They seemed to turn out fine, but they need to be spread apart further than 1/2"- I only put 6 to a cookie sheet. (I rolled mine out to about 1/4" maybe slightly thinner) I brought them to a dinner for church and everyone complimented them.

Maple Leaf Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This is my favorite bicuit recipe ever! It's so yummy with a burgundy stew or whatever Autumn dish you like. My little sister loves to eat them because of the fun shapes they're in. One suggestion though- make a double recipe of the butter/maple syrup glaze. I always do or I don't nearly have enough.
