Twice Baked Potatoes II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2001
These potatoes are great, and so yummy. The only drawback is time, but I cut that by microwaving the potatoes instead of using the oven for the first round of cooking. Soooo good!

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.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2002
Came out great. Easy to make. I love the combination of oatmeal and chocolate chips, and this recipe makes it easy. I think I stirred it a lot more than the recipe says, because I used a Kitchenaid mixer and left it stirring while preparing the dry ingredients. Kept using a spatula to clean the sides, too.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Wonderful, warm sauce! Not too sweet and not too tart. Tasted great with pancakes. Can't figure out what to do with the rest of it...makes a lot! Very good recipe and super-easy.

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.

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!

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. ;)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. :)
