Sour Cream Raisin Pie V

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
I made this yesterday for a dinner party. I remembered sour cream raisin pie from my childhood visits to my aunt's farm in Nebraska. This recipe is very similar to hers. I like a generous meringue, so I added an extra egg white and increase the brown sugar accordingly. It is a very rich pie, so I don't think I will make it again soon, but I will cetainly keep it in my file for future use.

Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
As others did, I added 1/4 c brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp. cinnamon. I also sprinkled the tops with cinnamon sugar before baking. The recipe made 8 nice size muffins. They were great and the strawberry flavor was just right. A great way to use up those last strawberries that are maybe just a bit too mushy to eat plain.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
These are very good. I made them in the mini muffin pan which makes them just the right size. I found the recipe made a lot more than stated. I ran out of mini pbutter cups so I started topping them with a mix of chocolate chips and pbuter chips. Not as great as the pbutter cups, but not a bad substitute. The cookies froze quite well too. I will make these again.

Sweet Potato Corn Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Very good, much moister than normal cornbread. You could easily substitute pumpkin for the sweet potato. This made a BIG batch. I made standard size muffins and it made 24. I served them with a hearty lentil soup, but to use for breakfast, I think I would add some pumplin pie spice, or something along those lines, maybe even some raisins.

Beefy Lentil Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
A good , very hearty soup. Be sure to use the spicy V-8. I followed the advice of others and browned my onions and some garlic before adding them to the soup. I used fresh mushrooms and added about 6 oz. of Cabernet the last 20 minutes of cooking.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
OK, I have made more apple pies than I can count in my life and I thought I had the ultimate recipe, but this one is better! I did toss the apples with about 2TB flour mixed with about 2 tsp. cinnamon, then filled my pie pan and poured the sugar mixture over the apples before I put on the top crust. That sugar mixture looked sort of like greasy pudding at that point and I was doubtful that this was going to work, but it all just blended beautifully with the apples during baking. I doubled the recipe to make a 10 inch pie and really heaped it full. I had maybe 1 cup of apples and a little sugar mix left over, but it made a very nice full, large pie. This goes to the top of my list!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
These are super. They are not too sweet, so I think they are a great addition to the holiday cookie assortment. The colors are very festive too. A little dip in white or dark chocolate is a nice addition. My Sicilian husband approved!

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I read other reviews and followed their advice to sift the cocoa and powdered sugar together before adding to the butter. I needed less milk that listed and I used an extra 1/3 cup cocoa. I also followed others advice and chilled the frosting overnight and then beat it again in the mixer and it had a very nice texture. I used it on the Dark Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes on this site.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
OUTSTANDING!! The only change that I made was to use bacon (3 thick slices cut up) in place of the bacon bits. I cooked the bacon until crisp, then drained it and used the bacon fat to saute the onions, pepper, celery, etc. This stuff just got better each day. The reaction I got was OMG! from each person who tried it! This will be my go to recipe for chili from now on

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
I am just rating the icing. It is now going to be my "go to" for cream cheese frosting. Wonderful flavor and easy to work with. It does hold it's shape for piping, but being cream cheese and butter, it did start to get to get a bit too soft after it warmed up. I made it a day ahead and re-whipped it the next day before using.

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
Very good, we really enjoyed the combination of butterscotch flavor with the banana. Nice moist loaves, I will make this again. As with most banana bread, better the second day.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
This really is an outstanding cake. I got raves from everyone. I agree, do use the mini chocolate chips, it makes a big difference. I used the Ganache I from this site to drizzle on the cake. Perfect, my new "go to" chocolate cake.

Ganache I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Very good, very easy. I used it on the Too Much Chocolate Cake from this site. Makes a pretty big batch, probably 1/3 batch would have been plenty for the Bundt style cake.

Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This is coconut cream pie in a cake!! Very good, but best after at least a day in the fridge. We used lightly sweetened whip cream and toasted coconut. Perfect.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
Really good and I did not find them difficult to make at all. I made both dough and filling and wrapped them in plastic wrap and allowed them to chill for a couple of hours. I then made sure I had an equal number of portions of both and just wrapped the dough around the scoop of the filling. They look great and taste great.

Andie's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Very good filling. I used Italian sausage in place of the ground beef. It made more filling than I could use in the mushrooms. I put it on sliced french bread and heated those in the oven- yum!

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
I don't think I would give this such a high review if I made it just as written, but with some of the adjustments others made and a couple of my own, it really is outstanding. I added 1/2 tsp. each of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and almond extract. To boost the peach flavor, I tossed the peach chunks with a couple of teaspoons of Peach Snapps and I also added 1 Tbs. Peach Snapps to the cake batter. I also added a caramel glaze as another review mentioned. I did add some salt to the caramel. The cake has a very nice texture and I highly recommend you make it a day ahead as the favors develop as the cake sits. I will certainly add this cake to my favorites.

Mexican Vegetable Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
My husband really liked this. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable and I used fresh sliced carrots (par-cooked) and frozen peas. It went very well with the Southwestern stuffed chicken brests and cornbread.
