Halve the butter and sugar and line the pan with foil for ease of cleanup. Yummy

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
Tasty way to serve okra. Much less grease than frying with great flavor. Thanks for sharing.

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
Used buttermilk in place of milk and Greek yogurt in place of sour cream as changes of necessity (had these on hand). Probably added a little more sugar, as did not measure and DH likes his cornbread on the sweet side. This is a great recipe for cornbread that tastes like that we had at home back in the prehistoric age, when I was a young girl. Thanks for sharing!

Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chunks

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
These are good little cookies - nothing out of the ordinary tho. Replaced 1 cup of all purpose with 1 cup of white whole wheat flour and the chocolate chunks with 1 cup of mini chocolate chips and a whole tablespoon of vanilla. Flattened the cookies out somewhat before cooking. Did not chill the dough and cooked for a little more than 10 minutes. This made 40 cookies for me and will make again, as it was simple, quick and tasty. However, the honey was quite noticeable, so if cooking for someone who doesn't care for honey, beware.

Peach Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
Have made this pie 3 times in as many weeks. Used a little over 3 cups peaches each time - only change. Yummy delicious! Made with the Short Sweet Pastry on this site as the crust. So good. Thanks for sharing!

Crispy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
To me, this deserves a high rating for an excellent method of cooking, but as a recipe, not so much.

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
For more flavor, try using a can of Campbell's beef gravy in place of the soup; use no milk but add a tablespoon each of ketchup and Worcestershire. Mix that with the browned beef and sautéed onions in the skillet before transferring to a 9x9 pan. Sprinkle with grated medium sharp cheese, then cover with tater tots (about 1/2 of the bag will do it). Cook at 425 for 25 minutes or so. Yum. Great for breakfast or dinner

Sausage Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
Found that this calls for too much milk after the can of evaporated - too late to save it, so had to add quite a bit of flour to make it thicken, which changed the flavor. Tried it again on another weekend, adding only 1/2 cup milk after the evaporated milk, which was just right. Also, added the butter before adding the flour. As written, however, we found it too thin and milky, tasting more like that from a restaurant trying to cut corners and stretch the sausage for more servings.

Fabulous Colcannon (Mashed Potatoes and Cabbage)

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
We think this is the bomb! A great mix of flavors and a meal in one dish - no need for anything else. Did not vary anything except for the use Greek Yogurt in place of mayo and a little more than half a pack of pre-shredded cabbage (will use the whole package next time). Yummmmm

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
Awesomely delicious! After reading some of the reviews and because of personal preference: replaced butter with coconut oil; did not peel anything; shredded the carrots and apple; used 3/4 cup lentils; 1/8 tsp powdered ginger in place of the fresh; no salt or chili powder; curry in place of cumin; cayenne in place of paprika; 2 cups vege broth, 2 cups chicken broth and 1 1/2 cup coconut milk in place of the 6 cups vege broth; and added fresh baby kale and spinach to the final product about 5 minutes before serving. I know this is a lot of changes, but would never have put this together without the original recipe posted here and that would be a shame! Thanks for sharing, zhidaoma!

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
Excellent! Used a microplane grater placed over the bowl of flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to grate the chilled butter and mixed in with fork while grating. Cut into squares instead of rounds, as the dough was already in a rectangle. Did not brush the tops, as my hands were moist with placing the biscuits on the silpat. These were just right - crispy on the outside and soft and wonderful inside. Made 8 biscuits and froze half - hope those hints are good ones! Thanks so much, Chef John. Your recipes can always be counted on to be the best

Lime Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2014
This is a great recipe but, as the submitter, can attest to the fact that it would be almost impossible to get 64 servings from anything which fits into an 8x8 pan! However, it is very rich and can serve quite a few because of that. Also, the chocolate doesn't have to be from those, or any, brand name products.

Applesauce Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
This tasted fairly good, but so moist as to seem underdone and a little gooey, in spite of cooking the recommended time and waiting until it began to pull from the side of the tube pan. The parts nearest the pan sides were done, as was the top and bottom, and I think cooking longer would have resulted in an overdone (and possibly still gooey) cake. Hubby said it was "rubbery" and we did not finish it :(
