Grandmother's Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2005
Fantastic! Hard to improve on such a classic, but I did add a tablespoon of vanilla extract - it turned out perfect! I made this with my four year old, and I know we'll be making this for many years to come. Thanks Patricia!

Egg Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
Great recipe! I toned mine down for my 5 year old, and followed Bea's suggestion: 3 tblspns of mayo, 1 tblspn of mustard, lots of diced pickles, and a teaspoon of Lawry's seasonings (didn't have any dill). Next time I will add dill. This is a keeper!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
What a good, dense pound cake! Had rave reviews. I didn't have almond extract, so I subsituted coconut extract. It didn't change the flavor too much, just adds a delicious smell!

One, Two, Three, Four Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
This was a great old-fashioned tasting cookie! It is definitely cakey, so if you don't care for those kinds of cookies, then this is probably not for you. I added a tablespoon of vanilla and a teaspoon of nutmeg and cinnamon to make it more flavorful. I iced it with an orange powdered sugar glaze at the end (3 tablespoons of oj, 1.5 cups of powdered sugar). The dough was not for cutting, so I made these as drop cookies and they formed beautifully. Also, I ended up with a lot more cookies than the recipe called for...so plan on making some for others as well! Everyone will thank you for it!

Scottish Shortbread II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
Great recipe - so easy! I changed mine a little for orange shortbread cookies by adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract, three tablespoons of orange juice and the zest of one orange. This recipe is great by itself or as a starting point for creating other fruited or flavored shortbread cookies! Yummy!

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
Fantastic! Made it for St. Patty's Day dinner and it was great! The only changes I made were to substitute buttermilk for the milk and use a package of pre-shredded cabbage (coleslaw mix). Thanks - I'll be making this every year!

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2004
Loved it! Used two cups of blueberries plus lots of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. It was so moist - perfect! I think next time I'll put more lemon in it to make it a little more tangy. I'll be making this again and again! Thanks!

Spicy Pear Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2004
Yummy! What a great way to use up pears! I added lots more cinnamon and ginger, zest of an orange and golden raisins. I omitted the walnuts for my two year old, but they would've been great too. Hubby and child loved it - I'll definitely make this one again!!! Thanks for a great recipe!

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2003
These were the first "grown-up" carrots I gave to my 14-month-old. I did cut down on the sugar (I think carrots are plenty sweet), but she loved them! We also make the "Carrot Cafeteria Souffle" which she loves too! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Mom's Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2003
These are going to be "heirloom cookies" for me! Thank you so much for sharing it! So delicious and easy. I took some out early for softer, chewier cookies, and left some in longer for crisper cookies. I make these with the maple syrup apple cider recipe ( search allrecipes for "Hot Apple Cider") for a fall treat.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Forgot to add that I used this recipe for mini muffins after I had too much for my bread pans. It worked out great! I've continued to make muffins out of it!
