Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2014
I was pleasantly surprised. With exception of the sherry, I followed the recipe as written. I don't like the flavour of sherry and I found the gravy to be fine without it. I thought that the flavours were good, not to bland as some others have suggested. This recipe can be easily tweaked or adjusted to suit one's taste if necessary.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2014
Not the best lemon bar that I have ever had, but it was ok. I found that the crust portion was too thick. My taste testers agreed. I also think that I will have to play around with quantities of sugar and lemon juice until I get just the right balance. I will try again with adjustments.

Old Fashioned Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
This recipe was okay. Easy to prepare. I used fresh pineapple instead of canned and substituted vanilla extract instead of almond extract. I don't like almond. Everything else was exactly as written(I don't normally substitute) The flavour was good but I found that the butter/sugar mixture made the cake too soggy. I will either reduce the amount and/or use a smaller pan next time so that it is a thicker cake. My husband did love this cake as it was.

Thumbprint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
This is a pretty good recipe. I made as written with the exception of the cooking time. I, like many others, had to increase the by at least 20 mins. The other thing is that the most number of cookies that I have been able to make with the recipe as is, is 19 and I did not make them very big. I am assuming that they are intended to be a lot smaller which may account for the shorter cooking time indicated in the instructions...?

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
The first time I made these cookies, I had to omit the nuts due to visiting allergy sufferers. The cookies were a huge disappointment. Very bland and I was not about to give this recipe as a gift and would not rate above a two. Today I made them again with the nuts and they are soo much better. So, not sure if that made so much of a difference or what but something went wrong the first time around. I think that today, they turned out the way they are supposed to. With the recipe as written, I got 16 large cookies which took 12 mins to cook.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
I just made these rolls for the first time and they turned out very well. I did find that the dough was sticky but proceeded with the recipe as written as I always do when trying a new recipe from this site. This recipe is a keeper as written. Very easy, nice flavour. I will make again for sure.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
This bread was a success at my house. It turned out to be moist and chocolatey. My daughter and her friend, who apparently hates everything, couldn't stop eating it. Although I normally follow a recipe exactly as written on the first try, I couldn't bring myself to add 2 full cups of sugar and reduced the amount to just over 1 cup. The result was still a very sweet bread and I could probably reduce the amount even more. Two cups would have been way too much and made it overly sweet, which is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5. The semi sweet chocolate chips add more than enough sweetness to justify reducing the sugar. Also, it only took 55 minutes cooking time

Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
Made this as written. Cake turned out well but we found it lacked a little bit in the flavour. When I made again I added cinnamon to the flour mixture and for the swirl, I used brown sugar with extra cinnamon as well. Hubby loves cinnamon and likes this cake much better since I made the changes. Good Cake.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
Easy to make. Appeared moist when done but were oddly chalky/dry. Flavour was like raw pancake batter.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2013
I made this as directed but was disappointed. It was tart, not to sweet which I do like but I found that it was also bitter. I am thinking that this is due to the zest perhaps. Meringue was good. Very easy to put together. I would make this again with some adjustments

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
I found that this was difficult to work with but will try rolling out using wax paper per other's suggestions. The end result was a flaky and tasty crust. Will try again

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
I found that this turned out to be to creamy and runny....not the consistency that I was looking for, but it was very sweet as is so didn't want to add more sugar to try to thicken it up. It was still runny after being refrigerated. Flavour was just okay. I will be looking for other recipes

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
This cake turned out well. Texture was good, flavour was okay...I just do not like coconut but wanted to make this as written. I had mixed reactions from my taste testers. No one "loved" it but thought it was alright. I would make this again with a few adjustments

White Fruit Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
I am one of the ones who can not stand fruit cake, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I am not a fan of candied or maraschino cherries so I used dried cherries instead and had to omit the pecans due to allergies. The cakes disappeared within 2 days and having to make again and will have to hide them for Christmas.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
I made these cookies last night and they turned out very well. I followed the instructions as written with exception of the amount of vanilla. I added an extra tsp. The dough was not to dry and the cookies spread beautifully. After they were cooled, I stored them in an air tight container and they are still crispy on the outside and soft on the inside today. Rating a 4 out of 5 because there is always room for improvement and not everyone in my house "loved" them. My husband didn't think that they were sweet enough but my daughters thought that they were epic. Overall, a very good cookie

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
I have made this a couple of times now and it is always a hit. Moist, chocolaty and easy to make. I would recommend to the chocolate lovers out there.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
I found that this recipe, as is, was not chocolatey enough. It would benefit from some added cocoa or chocolate chips. I would also have to shorten the cook time. Will try again with some changes.

Spinach Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
I was disappointed in this recipe as written. If I were to make it again I would make several changes to make it taste better. My hubby liked it though.
