Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
Made this for an Easter BBQ. Looked all over for full fat buttermilk but all I could find was lowfat buttermilk. Still turned out awesome. Doubled the recipe and there were no left overs. Multiple people told me it was the best cornbread they ever had. Also got multiple recipe requests. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
I had never tried spaghetti squash before. I followed this recipe exactly but my squash came out crunchy. A coworker told me I need to cook it in a pyrex with a little water next time and it will get soft. Even though the texture was off, the flavor was delish! I will definately try this one again.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
Made this punch for a baby shower. Used 1 3/4 cup sugar and it was still way too much. That's the only reason I'm giving this recipe 4 stars instead of 5. I wanted blue punch so I made substitutions that someone else suggested: 1) berry blue jello instead of strawberry jello and 2) limeade instead of lemon juice and orange juice. Unfortunately the pineapple juice still turned the punch green. Had to use several drops of blue food color to get it to turn blue again. Next time I will likely try substituting pina colada for the pinapple juice. The picture I uploaded was taken right after I added the sprite so the punch looks really frothy and light colored. It turned a deeper aqua color as it melted. It did turn up very pretty and was a big hit with everyone.

Peach Preserves

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Lovely color and consistency but way too sweet to eat. Recipe called for 4 1/2 cups sugar to 6 cups cooked underripe peaches. Used 4 cups of sugar to 6 cups of cooked ripe peaches. So sugary it could put someone in a coma! Had to toss the entire batch. If you decide to try this recipe, I recommend that you start with 2 cups of sugar, taste and add more sugar in 1/2 cup increments until you get to the desired sweetness.

Breakfast Kolaches

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
Thank you so much for this recipe! I've never made any sort of bread before and was surprised at how easy it was. I don't have a bread machine so I mixed the flour and yeast together and then added the warm milk and other ingredients. It came out perfectly! Usually when I use refrigerated dough, the bottoms get too brown or hard. These tasted like I bought them at a bakery! Reminded me of the ones I used to get at Prasek's in Hilje, TX! Thank you again!
