Snow Flakes

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
I just ate one of these melt in your mouth cookies and they are so awesome!!! BUT.....I am still in the middle of baking them and the cookie press is just not working out for me. The dough keeps sticking and won't come out and stay on the cookie sheet. For every 10 cookies I try, I get one that turns out. The only thing I did different than the recipe was to use butter instead of the butter flavored shortening. I can't believe this would make such a huge difference. I want to try these again with the butter flavored shortening. The taste is so good, I hope it turns out, but so far, it's been a huge pain in my butt!!!....I tried these again with the butter flavored shortening and they turned out a lot better than my first time. I guess that's what it was. This makes a lot of cookies.

Summer Soup of Butternut and Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I love this soup! I add 2 sweet potatoes and use sour cream instead of yogurt. I also just use chicken broth. Soooo good. It reminds me of Fall though, not Summer.

Nut Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
My first attempt at making nut rolls and they turned out great. Very easy to make and the recipe makes a lot. I made 6 rolls and I think next time I might make 12 small ones to give as gifts. I usually make tons of different kinds of cookies for the holidays, but I think this might be my tradition now. I used pecans instead of walnuts and they turned out very good too.

Banana Oatmeal Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
I doubled the recipe and baked in my Pampered Chef square baker. ( I use nothing but stones to cook and everything turns out awesome ) I read all the reviews about the topping being crumbly, so I put 1/2 the batter in the pan, put the topping and then the rest of the batter to contain it within the cake. Very good.

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
Although I didn't follow the recipe, this turned out awesome. I had a cooked rotisserie chicken that I cut up instead of starting with raw chicken. I used chicken broth instead of water and left out the peas and potatoes. The dumplings were soooo good. I also added maybe 1/4 cup fat free half and half mixed with 1 T. cornstarch to thicken it up a little. This will be the recipe I use from now on. Or at least a guide.

Fluffy White Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
This frosting was very easy to make and came out great but.....I just didn't like it. I prefer a buttercream frosting on cake and this was more like a marshmallow fluff. I still gave it four stars cause it is a good recipe if you like this kind of frosting.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I don't like when people review recipes and change the whole recipe..but, I made this adding a couple cloves of garlic and a sweet potato for extra nutrition. It was great and my kids loved it too. So healthy!

Baked Beans from Scratch

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I picked this recipe because I had all the ingredients. I received many compliments. Next time I may add bacon and maybe something to make them spicy. Very good baked bean recipe but I sort of like a kick to my food.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
One of my pet peeves is when people review recipes, but make TONS of changes and here I go...This bread was really good, BUT..I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce and one banana ( I had some to use ). I also cut the cinnamon in half. It was very good. I am making it again today, but may cut down on the sugar. Not sure. I like it sweet, but it takes away the point of making it healthy using zucchini.

Tuna Noodle Casserole IV

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
This was very good, although I made a lot of changes and additions. I sauteed some onion and celery in a little olive oil, added some peas, doubled the tuna, used smoked salami cheese and omitted the croutons. I also added a bunch of salt and pepper. My husband really liked it. I would make it again, but probably also add a little hot sauce to it. It's a good base recipe and you can pretty much add whatever you like.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
I may be the only one NOT giving this 5 stars. I usually make another pie recipe, which I love, but decided to try this one. I followed the recipe exactly and I thought it was definitely missing the cinnamon flavor. It seems like a weird taste to me. It was good, but I tasted a lot of butter and it kind of grossed me out. I think I may try it again, but cut down on the butter and add cinnamon and vanilla.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
This is my first time trying Italian Wedding Soup. I have always wanted to try it although I am more of a chowder person. It was good. I did not have spinach and with a 4 year old and a 1 year old, I thought that would freak them out, so that is the only thing I left out. I also doubled the meatballs thinking the kids would like them, but they mainly ate the broth and noodles....and lots of it. I kept adding more orzo thinking it didn't look like enough, but in the end I needed to add more broth. It was a good soup, but not my favorite kind. Next I will be making a clam chowder!

Very good pumpkin bread. I only had 2/3 cup vegetable oil so I used 1/3 cup applesauce. Also used 1 cup brown sugar and added chocolate chips. Would make again.

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I used half and half and 1% milk and omitted the parmesan. That just didn't sound good to me. It was very good. So much better than canned creamed corn. Would definitely make again.

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
This recipe was OK. You really have to like swiss to like this. I don't think it was a bad recipe....very easy...but I guess the swiss flavor was a little too much for my taste. I would rather have more of a cheddar flavor.
