Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese
I made this exactly as written and I LOVED it. The flavors just meld together perfectly and the onion adds an extra flavor that I wasn't sure would help, but it did! Great mac and cheese. I agree with a few others here about ratings. Please, if you're going to rate a recipe then make as written. It does no one any good if you're going to substitute left and right and then say it didn't taste good. Or if you don't like onions, skip this recipe, obviously it's not for you! This will be my only Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese recipe going forward. I can't believe how good this came out. I had tried so many mac and cheese recipes on here and none were up to par for me. But this one? It ROCKS!!!!! I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

Grandma Johnson's Scones
I did not change a thing with this recipe and I was amazed at how perfect these came out! The BEST moist, tender, flaky scones with just the right sweetness. I added golden raisins. This is a lot of dough, so it could make a lot more than 12 scones. This is definitely the best tasting homemade scone I have ever eaten. Sure to be a hit as gifts or at a brunch buffet. They are so buttery good I didn't even need to slather on additional butter. Thank you Rob for Grandma Johnson's scones. Wow. BTW I followed the recipe exactly; mixed the sour cream with the baking soda and set aside. It began to rise while I mixed the dry ingredients. I used cold butter and cubed it into the flour mixture and cut it in with my pastry cutter. Then added the sour cream mix and stirred in a slightly beaten egg just so the whites and yolk would mix in. Baked it in a 350 preheated electric oven for 15 min exactly. I don't see any reason to alter this recipe one bit. No need to cream the butter with the sugar (as another reviewer suggested) as I think that would alter the makeup of the dough. You want the marbling of the butter throughout. Perfect as is! If I could give this 10 stars I would!!!

Blonde Brownies I
OMG were these amazingly good. Just the way I love blondies; soft, chewy and gooey, if you don't overbake. I baked in a glass 8x8 dish for 20 min and they came out perfect. Am glad I only put chocolate chips on half the dough because unless you eat while still warm and gooey, the chocolate hardens and, for me, ruins the great brown sugary taste of this. So for me, they're perfect without the chocolate. Just a PERFECT blondie! I could bake these every other day!
