Moist, Tender Spice Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2015
I made this cake twice in one day. First time I followed the recipe exactly except I forget to add the baking powder to the dry ingredients, so I added it to the completed batter. After that one finished baking, I made another and this time read the reviews. I followed the standard cake formula this time (cream, then alternate wet and dry) and adjusted the spices a touch (1 1/2 t. ginger, scant 1/2 t. nutmeg, rounded 1/2 t. allspice.) I didn't add the applesauce because it seemed plenty moist. Both had the scratch cake texture with a significant crumb, although the second was finer. I never take a 9 x 13 cake out of the pan, so I didn't get the cracking that others did. I topped both cakes with one recipe of Scrumptious Penuche Frosting (from this site). I prefer the standard preparation method. As written was innovative, but like other reviewers, I got pockets of brown sugar. Because that one had already been relegated for home consumption, that didn't bother me much. Both cakes had a slight depression in the center, possibly from checking doneness too early (although at the listed time.) The spice mix of the first cake mellowed overnight, so I am not certain it needed changing. Tasty cake. I won't get rid of the recipe.

Grandmaw Cain's Beef Tips and Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
Did as some others suggested and cut the beef smaller and added a bit of onion powder, garlic powder and ground pepper to the flour, and added a bit of Better Than Boullion to the water. We loved this. Thank you.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2014
Great recipe to break in my enameled cast iron pot. Followed other suggestions and floured and browned the meat first, then didn't read the directions so the onion went in. Next time I will have to remember to put the celery in with the first addition, allowing it to cook longer. Added turnip and mushrooms and a little extra water. Kept the cornstarch at about 2 t., added it with the mushrooms at the last 30 minutes, and it thickened nicely because of the flour. Thanks for the recipe! Simple things so often are the best!

Indian Spiced Chex® Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2014
Loved this recipe! I did switch to Garam Masala (one of my favorite spice mixes from Penzey's) and I may have added a bit more cayenne-it was hard to see when I was giving a shake. I took it to a potluck, and brought home enough to take to work today, but enough was gone that I know people tried it-potlucks always have so much food! Such a nice switch from the salty Chex mix that I grew up hating.

Fat Free Refried Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2014
The main change I did here was to soften the onions before adding the beans to mash up-just a personal preference-and to add cumin and cilantro and more garlic as was suggested. Delicious!

Alisha's Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
I made a few changes, but the basic recipe still would rate the five stars I believe. This was to be served with ham, so I dropped that. I had some heavy cream that needed using, so that went instead of the milk, and I misread, so the full amount of cheese went in, and then the same amount on top. Great, tasty recipe, my family all loved it.

Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
The beef was good. My first time having Yorkshire pudding, so I don't know if they were good or bad. Not a popover fan, so as I expected, these won't be going into my rotation, but that is strictly a personal choice.

Caramel Apple Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
Used the full bag of caramels-well, except the couple that we ate-and microwaved them. Next time, I will do in a double boiler, there were lumps of unmelted caramel. Absolutely delicious, and am planning on making again 5 days after the original try!

Simple Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
This worked out extremely well for us. We put it together before leaving the house for a birthday party, and we were greeted with such a delicious aroma on returning home! The only difference was that we put about 1/2 cup water in the bottom before putting the lid on. My son-in-law absolutely loved it!

Bacon Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
My hubby called these the best scalloped potatoes I have ever made! Everyone loved them, even the son-in-law. I used Yukon Gold potatoes and about half cream instead of all milk (had already purchased before choosing recipe). I don't like onions so I sprinkled some onion powder instead. Used about 8 oz. cheese between the layers for 8 servings and sprinkled pre-cooked bacon pieces on each layer rather than only on top. The shining star in this recipe, though, is the white sauce. Absolutely makes it. Perfect quantity once I moved the potatoes around a bit so it could flow amongst them. Try this recipe. You won't regret it.

Chocolate Mint Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
When you change to the mint extract, you need to make up the difference in the liquid. I added probably about a teaspoon of milk. My rating is for the toppings only as I used my family's brownie recipe. Word of warning-the box brownies I have made in the past have had a flaky top on them and the mint creme might pull that up. If that bothers you, make the recipe from scratch or add even more milk than I did.

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
Loved this. Only adaptation was dried basil instead of fresh. Well, and I didn't measure the olive oil. Served with a rice dish, which absorbed the sauce nicely.

Cauliflower and Broccoli Bake

Very tasty. Just a little salty, but not sure how to judge salt and pepper to taste before the cheese is added

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Absolutely wonderful! The only change I made was to add about 2/3 bag of Mint Chocolate Chips. Everyone raved about them.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Used all the rest of the ingredients but only used one roast, because it was just my husband and I. Delish. Daughter #1 loved it. Daughter #2 gave up meat for lent but was thinking of backsliding for this dish.

Cranberry-Hazelnut Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
Very nice coffee cake. Wasn't able to have any warm, which I believe is the best way to enjoy coffee cake, but this one sustained me all week for breakfasts. Great for eating in the car, as there were very few crumbs.

Artichoke Bruschetta

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
Delicious appetizer. I skipped the onion-used onion powder instead-cut down on the mayo-about 2.5 T.-and it turned out delish!
