Aunt Bert's White Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
I followed this recipe exactly. I was a little nervous because the batter seemed a bit runny. However, the end result was delicious. Instead of making a cake, I made cupcakes and iced them with "Chocolate Frosting III." I made them for both my husband and I to bring to work, and they were devoured! Everyone raved about them!

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
This was delicious! I made a few revisions....I used salted butter instead of margarine and omitted the salt. I added about 1/2 a package of vanilla instant pudding mix and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the flour mixture. I used almond extract instead of vanilla. Also, I had to bake about 15 minutes longer than the recipe said, but that may just be my oven. Other than that, I stuck to the recipe, and it turned out perfectly and tasted delicious!

Polish Sausage and Pierogy Haluski

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
This was delicious!!! I made this using the "Pierogi (Polish Dumpling)" recipe on this site intesd of using frozen. Also, I cooked the onion and cabbage for a little bit, then added no sodium beef broth and covered. When the cabbage was done, I put it in a bowl, melted a little butter in the pan and added the kielbasa & pierogies until they got a little carmelization. It was amazing!

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
These are delicious! I did make some changes to the recipe....I slightly reduced the white sugar and added some brown sugar. I, also, used the whole eggs, added vanilla and almond extracts, and added cinnamon to the dough. The dough was not firm enough to roll into balls. I was in a rush, so rather than putting it in the fridge, I used a cookie scoop and then, a small spoon dipped in flour to make the well. It worked perfectly!

Gingerbread Boy Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I was making gingerbread cookies for my class, so I decided to try this recipe (because I've never been a big gingerbread fan, but I like a softer cookie). I did double the spices as others suggested, and I added some nutmeg and cloves. The kids loved them (said I was the best teacher ever), and my husband said that they were by far the best gingerbread cookie he's ever tasted!

Basil Tomato Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I tried this recipe (with a few modifications) last night, & my husband & I loved it! The rolls were moist and flavorful. I read a review that had a hard time getting the dough to rise. I used a tried & true method that I was taught when I 1st started baking bread - it hasn't failed me yet! I combined the yeast & warm water, as well as 1 tsp of the sugar. I let that sit until there was a thick layer of foam on top (about 10 mins). Then, I proceeded with the directions in the recipe. I did add dried parsley & cracked pepper to the dough. I, also, used Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour. I was making these to accompany a salad with grilled salmon & only had enough tomatoes for the salad, so I used a 12oz can of diced tomatoes for the sauce. I used fresh basil instead of dried & probably a bit more than the recipe called for. Also added parsley and a pinch of sugar. I did not add the additional tomato sauce as the recipe called for. Once I stuffed the rolls with the sauce, I topped with a blend of shredded Italian Cheeses. The results were great! Before this, my husband's favorite bread that I made was sundried tomato pesto bread sticks. Next time, he wants me to try to combine the 2 ideas & kneed the sundried tomato pesto into this dough & make everything else as I wrote above. I'm sure it will be great, too!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
My best friend and I used to work together . . . right across from a Starbucks. We loved getting their Pumpking Cream Cheese Muffins in the fall. When they stopped serving them, I found this recipe and made it right before my friend came over one night. We both loved them. She has since moved to another state and always asks me to make them when she comes to visit! My husband, who grudgingly tried these because he hates pumkin pie, also loves them. I did make a few variations. I make double the cream cheese mixture (and I've never had a problem when the cream cheese touches the paper cup). I leave out the pecans, and I add some pumpkin pie spice. I also substitute canola oil for the olive oil.

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
These were great! I made some plain, and then I made another batch with a twist. I topped the cookies with seedless raspberry preserves, and then froze them. While they were in the freezer, I melted dark chocolate in a double boiler. I then removed the cookies from the freezer and dipped them in the melted chocolate. I set the cookies on wax paper and placed in the refrigerator for the chocolate to harden. They were a hit!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
This is so good! It has become a family favorite in my home. I serve it with fajitas and black beans. My cousin said that she knew it was good rice because her husband got fourths - he usually eats one serving only of rice!

Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
Delicious! My husband hates nuts, so I left out the walnuts. I added pumpkin pie spice in addition to the other spices. I also used egg beaters instead of eggs to cut down the fat/calories, but no one could tell the difference. My husband and mother do not normally care for pumpkin. However, they both loved this bread!

Kickin' Turkey Burger with Caramelized Onions and Spicy Sweet Mayo

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Absolutely delicious!! The burgers were moist and full of flavor, and the sauce was delicious. I did cook the jalapeños and onions before mixing them into the meat. I didn't have steak seasoning, so I used Paprika, Parsley, and Thyme. I, also, added a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Cheddar & Swiss to each burger.

Grilled Zucchini Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
These were great! I did make a few changes....I didn't feel like starting up the grill for these only, so I lined a baking sheet with foil and put a cooling rack on top of the foil. I dipped the zucchini in the garlic butter (both sides) and laid on top of the cooling rack. Then, I made sure to put the little pieces of garlic on each slice. I put my oven on broil (high) and let them cook for a few minutes and then flipped them. I did not have any tomato sauce in the house, but I did have tomatoes. So, I thinly sliced a tomato and topped each slice of zucchini with one. Then, I returned to the oven for a few minutes. Next, I topped with a turkey pepperoni and then mozzarella cheese and returned to the oven until the cheese go bubbly. It was delicious!

Marinara Sauce III

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
I was surprised when I saw celery and carrot in a marinara sauce, but it came out great! I did make some variations. For the meat lovers coming to dinner, I made as recommended, but added ground beef. For the veggie lovers, I added zucchini, broccoli, yellow squash, and a little red wine. Everyone loved it.
