Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
Excellent recipe. My only change was to NOT cook the peaches ahead of time. I do not like mushy fruit dishes, and by using ripe peaches, slicing thinly, and not baking them first they were absolutely perfect and juicy when the final product came out of the oven. I used a 9x11 pan and had to double the topping because the amount given didn't cover the peaches much at all in that sized pan. Oh darn! LOL It's juicy but not runny and the flavor is wonderful. The topping baked up nicely and had a slight crunch on top from the sugar sprinkled over it. I had some with whipped cream and it was delightful, but I bet ice cream does it proper justice.

Chocolate Hockey Pucks

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
I've made this before and everyone loved them, but I learned to make them using two cream sides of the Oreo (so the no-cream side was left over). You use double the Oreos but both sides adhere to the PB cup without having to melt it and the symmetry is more pleasing to the eye. That may be just me though...:P Regardless, I use two cream sides of Double Stuf Oreos, one PB cup, then dip it in the chocolate and sprinkle a little something pretty on top. You'll be on a sugar high for hours. I imagine using white chocolate might be pretty spectacular, as well.

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Sooooooo good, and I'm not big on apple dishes. Slice the apples very thinly, then you don't have to worry about them not cutting when you're trying for pretty slices. The crumbly topping is essential!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Very good straight out of the oven, but after a day or so they get a little crumbly for my taste. I think it's because of the melted butter.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Works great with the cookie dough you buy in a tube or tub. Soften it up a bit, scoop it out into little balls and save time! Delicious!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Excellent flavor. Taste like buttermilk pancakes. The batter doesn't save for more than a few hours, though. I've tried. :D Add cinnamon or finely chopped pecans for a treat. Ooo, or chocolate chips! The batter is nice and thick so they don't fall and burn. Good stuff.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Awesome. Easy to make, better when halved and roasted with flat side down. Definitely keep in the little leaves that fall off, they get nice and crispy.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
I've made these several times, usually halving the recipe, and they are wonderful, soft cookies that come out. They stay soft, too, which is SO nice. I loved the Best, Big, Soft, Chewy recipe until I found this one. The Best one made an excellent cookie for the first day but after a day they became crumbly and not as good. These ones keep their flavor and texture, probably due to the pudding mix. Just follow the directions and you can't go wrong. My oven bakes them perfectly at 10-11 minutes.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
I had old cream of tartar and new baking soda and these came out wonderfully. I didn't have a problem with sticky dough and I did increase the white sugar to tbsp's rather than tsp's as per some of the reviews. I mixed the dry ingredients before adding them to the wet. I reduced the temp to 380 because my oven gets a little hot. Baked for 9 mins until they looked cracked but wet and took them off the sheet within a minute of them coming out of the oven. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. Excellent.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Woooow...the first batch of mini muffins just came out of the oven and they're wonderful! I used French vanilla yoplait light yogurt since I didn't have plain, and they are sooo moist and banana-y and chocolatey! Awesome.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
I followed SOUTHERNBELLE's recommendations and added the sour cream, another block of cream cheese and more cinnamon and nutmeg. I did not have any cloves and I forgot the spiced rum. I used a 9 inch springform pan, made my own graham crust and baked it in a water bath. It came out AWESOME. It tasted like something I'd get at the Cheesecake Factory and if it were a little taller it would have looked like it too. I'll use that recipe from now on for cheesecake and just adjust the flavors accordingly.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Excellent look and consistency. Stiffens perfectly without being too hard, still very edible. REALLY great for dipping cupcakes into, it coats them so nicely and holds anything you might put on top, i.e. fruit, sprinkles, etc. Try it with the Too Much Chocolate Cake recipe in either cake or cupcake form. Wonderful. It also stores very well.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Excellent, easy recipe. I reduced the oil to two-thirds or so. I agree with the mini-chip idea, they do stay suspended better. I made these in cupcake form and they came out wonderfully chocolatey and moist, no problem. I made the Satiny Chocolate Glaze as suggested by a few reviewers and dipped each cupcake in it to coat the top. Then I sliced up strawberries and topped each one with a whole sliced strawberry or a few blueberries or raspberries. The glaze stiffened up nicely but didn't harden so they were still easy to eat but the berries held fast. Beautiful and delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Earthquake Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
I agree with the person who said get rid of the picture associated with the recipe--it looks NOTHING like it. I followed the recipe exactly and thought it was pretty odd as I was assembling it (maybe the coconut and pecans float to the top?) but it literally looked like an earthquake hit it when it came out. It ran over the sides of the pan and the cream cheese/sugar mixture was very soft while the cake was fully cooked. I felt like I had to cook it longer because of this weird disparity. It tastes okay (my boyfriend loves it for some reason) but the coconut and pecans on the bottom and too brown and I feel like it's too sweet overall. Seriously, that picture isn't even close to the real thing.

Cream Cheese Tart Shells

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
The shell tasted great but I don't recommend using them for uncooked filling-i.e. baking the shell then filling it with something. It soaked up the moisture of the filling and became quite soggy. So just follow the recipe and they come out with a wonderful flavor!

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
Very tasty, very easy to make. I made it before my husband left for work and we had enough time to eat together. Like another reviewer, I'd double or at least increase the sauce--I made mine with four boneless breasts instead of six and it was just enough. Very good flavor and as I said, very easy to make. I used low sodium chicken broth since I find refular to be way too salty.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Ohhhhhhh yeah. I only had one big avocado so I kind of eyeballed some of the ingredients after scaling the recipe down to 2 servings but woooooowwwww.....that's excellent stuff. I also reduced the salt-just a pinch. The chips I had are salty enough. I imagine you'd want it with flour tortilla chips, though. I used dried cilantro and it worked just fine.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
SOOOOOO good. Seriously. And simple! I made two, one with just cabbage and one with everything else plus cabbage (onions, potatoes, carrots). The beer infuses the veggies and the meat in the most sinful way, it's amazing. Add the second bottle halfway through cooking and it's so juicy, flaky, meaty...I am in love with this recipe. Non-stout (dark beer) drinkers beware though, it tastes of stout. So, if you really, really don't like stout, don't try it. Use the silly little seasoning packet that comes with the brisket. But seriously...soooooo good. I made the "Amazing Irish Soda Bread" recipe from this site as well and it complemented it wonderfully. Both recipes are very easy and it makes your living space smell great while you relax, waiting for dinner to finish cooking itself.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Yummy, easy recipe. I don't normally like onions but they were great in this recipe, they didn't overpower at all. Can't recall if the recipe calls for it but I add some paprika to the top of the dish near the end and it adds a nice flavor to it.
