Absolute Best Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
This was freaking amazing!!! Had to substitute milk and vinegar for the buttermilk (ran out while making the pancakes lol) and honey for the corn syrup (mine...expired). I will NEVER buy store syrup ever again. Do be careful though: it IS very addicting. It's like liquid cinnamon rolls. Thanks very much for the recipe.

Egg Drop Soup II

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
Right before the egg drop I went ahead and added approximately two more tablespoons of cornstarch (mixed in a little cold water before adding of course) because the broth was looking thinner than I liked. I also increased the quantity of eggs up to 2. It came out perfect. If you like a thinner soup, stick with the original recipe. If you prefer a thicker soup, increase the cornstarch. I followed user suggestions and added a splash of soy sauce and sesame oil. Restaurant-quality indeed! Very well done.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
Perfect as-is and with additions. Tried it both ways and loved it all. The instructions were spot on - 10 min exactly in my oven and then allowed them to cool a few minutes on the pan. Absolutely perfect. NOTE: Don't hesitate to substitute old-fashioned oats for the quick-cooking oats.

Fried Tomato, Onion, and Mushroom Ragout

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
Added a little garlic and a dash of cayenne for a little heat since I was out of red pepper flakes. Served over egg noodles . So awesome and simple. Thanks for a great recipe.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
This is my new cake recipe. It doesn't need anything and is perfect as is. If you aren't creaming your butter and sugar long enough, it will turn out grainy. If you aren't incorporating your eggs properly, the texture will be off. Follow the directions as written and you're golden. Like a previous poster said, if you end up with batter that looks like yellowish cool whip, you're doing it right. Now to find a decent frosting recipe....

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
Layered frozen green beans, corn, carrots and peas first, mixed meat with soup omitting the milk, tots, and finally sharp cheddar on top. All four of my youngsters loved it and wanted seconds.

Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Made as directed. Perfect! I'll never make my oatmeal any other way. I highly recommend people try the recipe as directed before decreasing the amount of sugar. The recipe is for 3 servings not one so don't be frightened by the seemingly large amount of sugar. Also, it's called Butterscotch Oatmeal for a reason. It's supposed to be sweet and creamy oatmeal. To the author of the recipe: great idea about adding the egg. It really makes a difference.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Had to substitute vanilla yogurt for sour cream (I was out), but other than that these were divine. Tried with and without the streusel topping from the To Die For Blueberry Muffins recipe and it's good both ways. This is very moist and tender. Absolutely perfect! Thanks for an astounding recipe.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Added herbs, garlic powder, and onion powder. Otherwise I followed the directions exactly. Used ranch sauce instead of tomato. Delish! Well done.

Sherry Fruit Dip

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
Simple and delicious. After reading the other reviews, I tested the dip using different amounts of sugar starting with 2/3 cup. If you prefer more of the cream cheese flavor, use only 2/3 cup. I ended up using the full amount stated in the recipe per the hubby's instructions lol. I served this with pineapple, strawberries, grapes, apples, and bananas. It's a definite family favorite.

Fried Rice with Marmite®

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Awesome recipe! My entire family loved it and none of them besides me loves Marmite. Excellent recipe and works great with substitutes like ground beef or cabbage.

Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
This is my new favorite chili. I did modify it by increasing the amount of chili powder to 2 tbsps, I added 2 tsps of cumin, substituted brown sugar for white sugar, and used the easy pumpkin puree which already had the pumpkin pie spices added to it. I also took the advice of another poster and added 2 cloves of garlic. It is a little bit on the sweet side, but it's an unique twist that brings something special to table. Thanks for such a great recipe. Well done!

Mom's Baking Powder Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Excellent recipe! Simple and customizable. I made a batch following the recipe as is and then I made a batch using butter instead of shortening. Both were perfect. I'm going to try making a batch using heavy cream and sugar for shortcake next. Thanks for an awesome recipe.

Grandma's Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
Excellent dessert. I agree with a previous poster: be sure to use good quality chocolate. I used Hershey's cocoa powder and followed the recipe exactly. It turned out great, but there's was just something...not exactly right with it. I know for a fact it's the chocolate brand I used though because I've noticed Hershey's been tasting different as of late. (I heard they had changed their formula.) Anyway, I'm definitely going to be using this from now on as my go-to recipe for chocolate pudding. I'm going to try it with Ghiradelli chocolate next time. Thanks a bunch for a simple, yummy treat!

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
All I have to say is WOW! This is exactly what I was looking for in a sugar cookie. Another reviewer had said these reminded her of Lofthouse cookies. She was right! I had to do two substitutions due to a lack of ingredients on hand, but the result was so great I think I will use my modified version from now on. Thanks so much for this recipe. This definitely satisfied my sugar craving. =) Substitutions: 1. I used cake flour instead of all-purpose flour. This yielded a more tender-crumbed cookie. (1 CUP all-purpose flour = 1 CUP + 2 TBSPS cake flour) 2. I used all butter instead of butter and shortening as called for in the recipe. Tips: 1. Know your oven - mine runs a little on the hot side so I baked my cookies for only about 9 minutes, turned off the oven, and let them sit in there for about 2 minutes before pulling them out. 2. After mixing, I placed the bowl in the fridge for approximately 5 minutes to chill slightly. I find working with cooler dough to be easier and less messy. 3. DO NOT OVER BAKE...unless you like crunchy cookies. This can never be stressed enough.
