Vanilla Kifli

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
These were wonderful and easy! Little mouthfuls of vanilla-cookie-awesomeness. I dipped them in dark chocolate and didn't have any vanilla sugar but used regular granulated sugar. That worked great and they tasted wonderful! Great recipe.

Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Made excellent mini-muffins, just be sure not to overfill the cups. Nice, light flavor with a crispy top. Loved them.

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
Made these for a bake sale--very easy and good taste. Not a really great "cheesecake" taste but close enough in a tiny, portable mini-cheesecake that it was a big hit. Used graham cracker crumbs and butter, pressed a small amount into the bottom of mini baking cups and filled with the mixture. Then topped with a spoonful of cherry or blueberry pie filling.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
Excellent soda bread! I made it with Corned Beef and Cabbage from this site and it was a perfect accompaniment. Slightly sweet, just moist enough. Great recipe.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
Wow...this came out so good. Very moist, great flavor. Made it exactly as the recipe said. My husband is from Puerto Rico and grew up eating cornbread with coffee rather than with a meal later in the day. He loves this recipe! I sent some with him when he went to visit his family and they loved it, too! Not too sweet, just right.

The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
Very rich, great flavor. Undercook them, definitely, by a few minutes. They came out moist and chewy with a wonderful peanut-butter flavor. This is my new PB cookie recipe.

Glazed Apple Cream Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
Great flavor and texture--someone said it tasted like those little pies you buy at the supermarket with Snoopy on them. I think that's mainly due to the glaze. Yummy!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
Very good marinade, it gave the salmon a wonderful flavor that wasn't overpowering. I kept it in the marinade for a little over two hours, skin side down. I used a 1.5 lb fillet and kept it whole until after it was cooked. Also, I don't have a grill so I baked it in tinfoil on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes or so at 400 degrees. Paired with the Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter sauce, it was wonderful.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
Made it last night--very good flavor. My date was very pleased, as was I. I paired it with the recipe for Grilled Salmon I, but since I don't have a grill I baked the salmon. Threw some Rice-A-Roni in there and it was a very tasty and easy meal.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
I made this for Thanksgiving and brought it into work. It's easily the best tasting apple pie I've tasted or made. I added about a 1/4 to a half cup of the mixture to the apples before filling the pie and it seemed to work very well. I poured the rest over the top and it came out sooooo good. This is my apple pie recipe from now on. ;)

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
I made these for a Christmas potluck once and they were gone in a heartbeat. Very easy to make, and using different coatings is fun. :)

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
I've made this a few times and the recipient always loves it. One suggestion--don't store the boiled sweet potatoes in the fridge when you don't have time to make the pie right then...it separates a bit and makes the pie grainier than it needs to be. It's much smoother when the directions are followed and it's mixed right after boiling and peeling. :)

Banana Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
I couldn't find my other saved banana bread recipe so I used this one and made a streusel topping myself--it turned out very moist with a wonderful flavor. I'll probably use this one from now on. :)

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2004
Nummy!!! Even with frozen meatballs, which is what I used. I bet with the homemade meatballs they're even better... The sweetness of the cranberry sauce and brown sugar are soooooo good with the other salty ingredients. I used homemade whole cranberry sauce (on the back of the Ocean Spray cranberry package) and the flavor was great. Don't let them cook too long, though...the sauce dries up and they're ruined. Duh...

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
Excellent--definitely use one 3.4oz pkg vanilla and one 3.4oz pkg banana pudding mix, and I reduce the milk to 2.5 cups. Everything else is the same, and it kicks butt. Everyone loves it, it's easy to make, no baking to mess up, yum!

Black Bean Lasagna I

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2003
Awesome vegetarian dish, and I'm a meat eater! I accidentally bought one can of black bean soup and one can of regular, and it still came out wonderfully. I also added some oregano, basil and garlic powder (I was out of minced garlic) to the cheese mixture, and the spices were subtle but tasty. I think if you add spices, this dish is great.

Cinnamon Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: May 18, 2003
Soooooooo easy, sooooooooo yummy. I love the cinnamon flavor with the chocolate. I've always related cooked pudding to the ones my aunt used to make with the skin and grossness and I never liked them. But this comes out so rich and flavorful, and strangely enough, no skin, really. Make the effort and don't leave out the toasted coconut, it's worth it for the taste it adds.

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: May 18, 2003
Wonderful, and fairly easy to make, if a little time consuming. Worth it, though. I haven't actually tasted it yet, as I made it for a friend's birthday, but it looks great and the crumbly bits that fell off while I was transferring the cakes to the plate were nummy. The frosting came out to a pretty good consistency, especially if you chill it. I doubled the frosting recipe, too. If you make more than the original amount of frosting, keep in mind you'll need a good half hour in front of the stove to get it to thicken. I kept it at medium-low to medium to speed it up a bit, but I didn't want to burn it either. All in all, gorgeous cake, tastes great!

Brownie Caramel Pecan Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2003
These brownies were soooooo good!! It's my favorite scratch brownie recipe, by far, and the caramel and nut topping was phenomenal. I made them for someone at work as a thank you for working for me and everyone she shared them with loved them. They were pretty easy, too. I used 35 caramels instead of 25 and a tiny bit more butter and milk...really tiny. I just like my caramel gooey, I guess, it came out great, very smooth. A keeper, definitely!!

Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2002
Great banana flavor, easy to make. I've made it more than once and everyone loves it. Hard to overcook, too, which is always a plus.
