It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2014
My go-to chili recipe. With 3 in the house that do not like chunky chili, this is by far the only recipe they gobble up immediately. Flavorful, smooth, and delicious!

Sour Cream Cut-Outs

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
This is a very bland cookie if you like non sugary cookie. What appealed to me was the no chilling part. I had nice, soft, tall cookies but did make Rick's Buttercream frosting from this site to sweeten them up. That made it perfect!

Carolina Style Low Carb Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Fabulous as is!! I love mustard sauces and since I started low carb needed something that would be low in sugar but good on all meats. This is it! I am baking chicken currently that is smothered in this sauce and have more in the fridge. Will be using it a lot! Thank you so much!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
By far the best banana bread recipe I have ever made. I made very little changes to the recipe. I used baker's sugar (super fine sugar) instead of regular granulated. I only had 5 bananas so I did add a tsp of banana flavoring just in case. A dash of pumpkin pie spice as well. I made one large loaf, 5 jumbo muffins and 4 mini loaves with the amount of batter. Everyone loved the sugar and cinnamon crunch on the bottom. Only thing to note is the bake time is definitely longer than an hour. It took about 90 minutes for my large loaf and about 45 for my mini loaves and muffins. But just keep testing and you won't be disappointed!

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
Thick, hearty and amazing. I did make a few changes, mostly for flavor. I used 4.5 lbs red potatoes since that is what I had in my garden. Used an extra cup of milk, only 8 oz of cheese, a whole pound of bacon and added a tablespoon of dried mince onion and a tablespoon of garlic salt. It was thick, reach and creamy and amazing. I thought about making it lower in fat and calories but decided that goes against all rules when it comes to potato soup. Great recipe, thank you!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
This is by far the best banana cake I have ever made or tasted! It did require a bit of a longer baking time to set in the middle than written but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and will make again and again!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
I doubled this recipe, left the bacon in the soup, used all the drippings when sauteeing, only used 1/2 an onion (we aren't huge onion fans), cut the basil in half and topped with green onions. These small changes kept the original recipe intact but fit our families tastes and we loved it. No changes other than what I did necessary!

Ice Cream Sticky Buns

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
These were very good though I should mention I did change the recipe slightly. I lowered the sugar to 1/3 cup of each, sprinkled pecans over the top and added 1 tbsp of cinnamon to the sauce. My husband loved these! I think with full amounts of sugar this would be overly sweet.

Cowboy Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I was looking for a quick and easy recipe for camping and this was a hit. I made it at home then reheated over the fire in an aluminum pan (no cleanup!) and baked my biscuits separately. Once warm I served over biscuits we toasted over the fire. Fabulous! We had a side of sweet corn grilled in the husk and it was a perfect cowboy dinner. I may even make this at home on occasion.

Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
I have just spend the last 48 hours making 4 different cinnamon roll recipes trying to find the ONE that I was looking for. After 3 recipes, this one is the closest. I wanted something light but with a boost of flavor. While I did make some changes, this one was the closest. First of all, I needed about 8 cups of flour before my dough would come together, no matter how much kneading I did. Secondly, to make 24 rolls, I needed more flavor in my filling so I used 2 cups of brown sugar mixed with 3 tbsp of cinnamon. I made my dough, let it rise for 2 hours, rolled it out in two separate pieces, filled, cut, let rise another hour then baked at 375 for 22 minutes, though 350 would have been better as my rolls got a little browner than I would have liked on the outside. After a few more tweaks I think I will have finally found THE ONE.

Banana Cake V

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I made this yesterday because I had 5 overripe bananas to use. I doubled the recipe and made two rounds, stacked them with a banana buttercream icing in the middle and frosted the whole cake. I didn't make any changes to the recipe but did find I needed to bake the two rounds slightly longer. I can't say I am over impressed with this recipe but was expecting something a little different. My two year old is asking for this cake every hour so it can't be bad.

Spaghetti Sauce III

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
Great sauce. I added sugar per someone else's review and it was a BAD idea. Way too sweet. I had to add some jalapenos to unsweeten it. Spices are a bit overpowering, so I will half them next time (didn't put the meat in there as we wanted a meatless sauce.) But a definite make again with these changes.

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
Like most recipes on here I read reviews before making them. For this one I used butter instead of margarine, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 3 large very ripe bananas, 2 eggs, 2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp of Watkins vanilla nut extract and a generous pour of Captain Morgan. I then sprinkled Sugar in the Raw on top before baking. Bake time was about an hour and 15 minutes and this has been deamed best banana bread ever by my husband. Thanks!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
I have to say, I was pretty skeptical on this one when I was trying to mix it up. I could not get all the flour "moistened" in the rest of the ingredients. I kneaded it probably a lot more than you were suppose to but finally it all came together. The only changes I made were to use chocolate chips instead of raisins and added a teaspoon of vanilla. I glazed the tops with a bit of powdered sugar, vanilla, milk glaze and they are fabulous. A definite make again. I will try cinnamon chips with turbinado sugar or blueberry with turbinado sugar next!

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
This cake was fantastic. I followed the instructions exactly and made it into 4 layers. The only thing I did different was not using as much oil. I did a test run the day before using cake flour and the full amount of oil but it refused to come out of the pan. The next day I used regular all purpose flour and slightly less oil and it came out of the pan. Baking time definitely seems to be off as it took a lot longer than I anticipated and had many holes poked in it from testing. Good thing frosting covered that up. My husband drenched his pieces in Hazelnut coffee for breakfast and inhaled the whole cake in a matter of a couple days!

Aunt Bert's White Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I am only giving this 4 stars, not because it wasn't good, but because it isn't a "white" cake. The flavor was good but the texture, density and color was not at all what I expected or was looking for. The fact that this cake had so many egg yolks should have tipped me off but I went ahead and made it anyway. It was a very good cake, just, in my opinion, is a "yellow" cake, not white.

Spanish Flan

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This was fabulous, though a little too thin for me. I don't think I used enough eggs but will definitely make again using more eggs and maybe a smaller, thicker pan.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
The flavor of this was amazing, however it turned out more of a cake consistency than a bread. But will definitely make again!

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
Tasty! I doubled the recipe and made it more of a cake and made an almond glaze for the top. This was a hit for everyone who tried it.

Chicken With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
My husband said this was restaurant quality! It was definetly very good. I used double the mushrooms as we love mushrooms, added garlic powder, rosemary and a bit of parsley. I also bought fresh mozzarella and sliced it and covered the top before baking. I broiled the cheese the last 5 minutes then removed the dish and poured out the liquid carefully and made a gravy with it, which was very good. The only thing I didn't like was the chicken got soggy which made me wonder why you brown it. Maybe I used too much liquid but will definitely make it agian.
