Banana Oatmeal Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
I love banana bread, so I fully expected to enjoy this cake. But... it really just wasn't that great. I found it to be on the dry side, and didn't care for the addition of the oats (although the banana oat bread from this site is delicious). So, I guess that I will stick to making breads from my over ripe bananas.

Creamy Orange Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
This was just "okay" for us. I did use a white cake mix instead of orange, but don't think that the orange would have really helped. The gelatin part just seemed to make the cake "wet" in places. The topping was actually very good, and I ended up scraping most of it off and eating it with a spoon. It was like a citrus mousse. Wouldn't make the cake again, but may make the topping and eat it out of a bowl!

Room Two Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
These are FABULOUS!!!! DELICIOUS!!! cookies. They are simple to prepare using regular ingredients that I always have in the pantry and didn't take long to make at all. They came out soft, chewy, and chocolatey. We are into the second day, they are nearly all gone, but still taste great. This is a great chocolate chip cookie recipe that I will be making again and again!! THANKS!!

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This is pretty much my go-to recipe for sloppy joes. I don't use the celery because no one in my family cares for it. Other than that, I follow the recipe, and it is a winner everytime. This recipe works great in a slow cooker as well. Just brown up your meat in a skillet and then add everything to the slow cooker. 4-5 hours on low, and it is perfect and ready to eat when you are.

Italian Rigatoni Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This recipe is so easy and adaptable to everyone's tastes. I only used beef instead of the beef/sausage combination and also omitted the mushrooms. I also used a different pasta sauce, and I think just about any kind would work in this recipe. This is a favorite of my kids' and of mine because it is simple, quick, and the whole family loves it!

Monkey Bread V

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
I make this all the time. It is a delicious, easy to assemble recipe, that turns out great every time. This time I opted to make it with a powdered sugar glaze, but it is also delicious without.

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Love this cake and the wonderful strawberry flavor it brings. I followed the recipe, but baked mine in a 9X13 pan instead of 2 layers. I also used AP flour and adjusted the measurements instead of using cake flour. This cake was moist and delicious. I made a strawberry cream cheese frosting that was just perfect for this cake. Will definitely be making this one again!

Kelli's Fried Green Zucchini

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
Boy was this good. I love fried zucchini and only make it once a year. I did not use the mozzarella cheese at the end, but the zucchini was still delicious. Having the oil at the right temperature is important in this recipe...too hot, and it will burn quickly, not hot enough and the zucchini just sits and soaks up oil. I used more oil and kept it at 350-375 degrees, frying just a few pieces at a time. Can't wait for next year's zucchini crop to do this one again.

Cherry Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
One of the easiest ways to prepare a "no bake" cheesecake. I opted to keep the pie filling separate for family members to add on their own. This was a quick, easy, and delicious dessert.

Butterscotch Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
I made this into cupcakes and opted to mix the butterscotch chips into the batter. I omitted the sugar and almonds and used a chocolate buttercream instead. Nice butterscotch flavor, without being overpowering; however, I don't think they would have been as good without the frosting.

Granny's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
A really great banana bread. I loved the addition of the nutmeg, although, I did reduce it to 1/4 tsp so that others in the family (who don't love nutmeg as much as I do) would also enjoy this bread. I left out the optional raisins and walnuts, but plan on using either walnuts or pecans next time. Love that there is not butter, but the bread was not rubbery or gummy in texture. Would highly recommend this one!

Lime Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
My husband said that this was the perfect lime pie. Not too tart, not too sweet, with just the right "lime" flavor. It was creamy, but not runny, and the graham cracker crust was the perfect bottom for this pie. We have enjoyed this many times already and will continue to enjoy it in the future!

Chippy Blond Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
These were okay. I omitted the pecans, using butterscotch chips in place. My kids really liked these, while my husband and I thought they were just okay.

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
One of our favorite kinds of pizza!!! We have this at least a couple of times a month, and my kids request it frequently. The only change I make is to use ranch dressing instead of the blue cheese, as we don't care for blue cheese dressing. It may not be traditional buffalo style, but we love it this way!

Chocolate Billionaires

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
These really do taste like little candy bars. After reading many reviews, I made a few changes. I upped the cereal to almost 2 full cups, reduced the pecans to about 3/4 cup and skipped the refrigeration. I was concerned about making these round and presentable as I was using them for gifts at Christmas. I used my small cookie scoop and dropped the mixture onto my Silpat. After dropping around 6-8 of them, I would go back and roll them into balls. They were much easier to handle sitting for a few minutes, cooling down. After dropping and rolling them all, I then refrigerated the balls overnight, and dipped them in the chocolate the next morning. They turned out nice and round and I added Christmas sprinkles for presentation. I think these would also be great for Easter, as it would not be that difficult to shape into Easter Egg form.

Oat-rageous Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
WOW!!! I was so impressed with these cookies - I can't wait to make them again. I did use pecans instead of walnuts, as that is what I had in the pantry. Since my kids and husband don't care for dried cranberries, I made 1/2 batch without for them, then added them into the last 1/2 for me. The ones without the cranberries were good (they are now gone thanks to my kids and husband), but the ones with the cranberries were outrageous. Some of the best cookes I have had. The flavors of the toffee, nuts, cranberries, chocolate work so well, and every bite has a different flavor in it. Thanks so much for an awesome and different cookie recipe!

Chunky Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
We are huge fans of potato soup, and I have tried many of the potato soup recipes on this site. We really enjoyed this one, but I did make a few changes. I decreased the onion to about 1/4 cup and omitted the celery. I also used shredded cheddar cheese instead of Swiss and added in a can of corn. The kids loved this and it was perfect with a side of cheddar garlic biscuits.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
A new family favorite. This is a great soup to have on a cold wintery night. I didn't use celery, as we don't care for it. I also just used shredded sharp cheddar cheese. The soup was wonderfully waming and perfect with homemade dinner rolls. Will be making again!

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
Loved these, even with the omissions that I had to make. I did not use the sesame oil or sesame seeds, but we all loved the noodles. Considering how expensive those ingredients are, I need to find more than just one recipe that the family loves in order for me to buy them. For now, I will just make them without them. We had these as a side dish to asian pork tenderloin, and they were the perfect compiment.
