Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I was skeptical after tasting the batter and seeing how sweet it really was, but after baking and eating it I decided it's one of my favorite new recipes! I thought it was very moist and perfect with or without butter on it. The only thing I changed was that I baked it in a large loaf pan for 40-50 minutes and covered it for the last 10-15 minutes to prevent it from over-browning.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
Thanks for the great recipe! I followed the advice of a few of the reviewers who suggested adding half brown sugar and half white sugar instead of 3 full cups of white sugar, however next time I will try it the original way. I think both will be delicious! Very moist and fudgy!!!

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
Ok, I have made this recipe without the powdered creamer idea. I usually use milk and boil the tea in a small saucepan with a cinnamon stick. I usually add some vanilla and use half sugar half honey to sweeten. The first review says cardamom is an expensive spice and to grind it yourself, but they sell it already ground and it's no more expensive than any other spice in the spice aisle of the grocery store. I also use less cardamom than what is usually called for because it is over powering and has a slight after taste. Anyway, sorry I am rating without following this recipe to a T, but I am very excited to try with the milk powder and two kinds of powdered creamer!!

Never Enough Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
So I was making dinner for a friend who requested green bean casserole, which I usually HATE, so I found this recipe and made it for him...it was DELICIOUS; I should mention that I always double the green beans and soup, add garlic salt, pepper, and about 1/8 to 1/4 of a block of cream cheese along with the original amount of Velveeta, (the cream cheese is the secret ingredient that really makes this recipe amazing). I then mix some of the french fried onions throughout as well as top the casserole with them. Be sure to cover while baking to keep the onions from burning and then bake uncovered for ten or so minutes towards the end. My friend said that it was "better than his mom's green bean casserole," which would most likely be a HUGE compliment coming from anyone. :) Thank you for this recipe! Now my family and I will actually eat green bean casserole, but only when prepared like this!!!

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Do not omit salt in this recipe, and also, as for any bread or muffin recipe, mix wet and dry ingredients separately and then add dry ingredients to the wet ones just until moistened...it is ok if batter appears lumpy when there is fruit in the recipe. I also added vanilla and nutmeg, and as suggested by another rater, a brown sugar and water syrup poured on top makes this bread top crunchy and sweet, however I also added salt in the syrup topping.

Famous Restaurant Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I think it is a decent recipe; I like the flavor the cream cheese adds, but I would also decrease it and maybe add some other cheeses. Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Spoons

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
I use almond bark when making this; I dislike the way melted chips don't really drizzle unless put in a frosting bag or the baggie you made...and almond bark can be drizzled easily. Although, if you want to make specific designs, like shapes, on the spoon, that I would use the white chips for. It is a cute idea to gift in a mug with candy or cocoa mix.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Oh SO rich, I've also made this adding NOT ONLY the brownies, but broken up soft chocolate chip cookies TOO...mmm. My mom and I wondered if, instead of chocolate, the new Jello brand pumpkin spice pudding would make a good fall dessert such as this, maybe with Nilla wafers or graham crackers instead of brownies??? :)

Doggie Treats II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I am making these right now, and my dog has been at my feet since I started. She loves the dough, so far, and I know she is going to love the finished product. I cut the pieces into smaller squares with a pizza cutter because I don't have a dog-bone cookie cutter yet. I am glad I came across the recipe because I had all of the ingredients on-hand and am sick of buying over-priced treats at the store. I also love the idea you gave of giving these as a gift with a cookie cutter!!!

Best Ever Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Love these!!!! Don't be worried about the measurements, this has always turned out great for me! This frosting recipe is thick so it's harder to spread, double the recipe for delicious, thick frosting!

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I followed the recipe except added only 3 eggs, 30 oz can of Libby's pumpkin pie mix and an extra teaspoon of pumpkin pie seasoning for the bars. For the frosting, I used an 8 oz. package of cream cheese, 1/2 a cup butter, 2 tsp. vanilla and about 2-2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar. Everyone at work loved them, and they were very moist, yet fluffy.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
I agree with other reviews that this is a good start or base granola bar recipe. I liked it, but I thought the honey taste overpowered everything else. Sooo the next time I used light corn syrup instead of honey and it was great. I have tried this recipe substituting different dried fruits including dried cranberries, coconut, apples, or raisins, and I have even put a mixture of nuts including unsalted sesame seeds, slivered almonds, or walnuts. Also, I have added mini chocolate chips or drizzled white almond bark over the top when they come out of the oven. I also agree that the cook time is a little long, they do not need to be brown around the edges, that usually means the edge pieces are going to be crunchy while the middle pieces are more chewy; probably around 25-30 minutes is good. Oh and lastly, I don't always put cinnamon in them when it doesn't go with the other ingredients, and I always lessen the salt to 1/2 tsp! Hope everyone enjoys all of the variations you can make with this recipes!!!

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This is the same recipe I have always made...actually I think it is the same recipe that is on the back of the pudding box, but it is the only recipe I will ever use again. They are soft and moist, and to die for!!! I use french vanilla pudding and omit the nuts and usually only put half of the chocolate chips in. Coworkers, friends, and family always say they are the best cookies they've ever had. I usually make the cookies bigger and form them into smooth balls with my hands so they look perfect when they come out of the oven. Make sure you don't over cook them though; bake them just until the tops are just golden brown, and cool on a wire rack. Separate layers of cookies with waxed paper in a sealed container or they will stick together.
