The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
I added extra vanilla and 1 tsp. almond and 1 cup of powdered sugar to this recipe . I also decreased the baking powder by 1/2 tsp. and popped them in the freezer between cutting out and baking so they would be thin and keep their shape. They turned out great and are a truly exceptional tasting cookie! I usually think sugar cookies are just okay, but seriously, these were delicious!!!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
Not bad, if you don't mind the taste that comes from all shortening and no butter. Holds up really well in the heat, but I won't make it again...love real butter buttercream too much!

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
Perfect for a great, basic chicken noodle soup. Tastes like what your Grandma would make, but it's super simple. I add extra garlic, fresh ginger, and red pepper flakes to the stock to give it some kick, and that really bumps it up to a 5 star rating for me. Also, I use the frozen egg noodles..mmmmm. Perfect on a cold day or if you feel like you're getting sick.

Hearty Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
DIVINE!! I used frozen shredded hashbrowns, frozen corn, more onion (maybe 1/3 cup), and added red & yellow pepper. Oh, I also used medium cheddar cheese (processed cheese = yuck!!) Whole family LOVED it, which rarely happens in our house. This would be great for a brunch casserole with some cinnamon rolls or banana bread!! Thanks for the great recipe.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
This is so light yet satisfying! I think the dressing is a little sweet for my taste, so I cut the sugar in half. Makes a great main dish when you throw it on a bed of spinach and add some chips, shredded cheese, and avocado. Thanks for sharing!!

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
Delicious! As written, doesn't work too well for decorating, but if you add more powdered sugar it does great.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Very, very simple to make and tasted great. I have only used it once so far, which was my first time ever decorating sugar cookies, so I had no clue what I was doing! I wasn't sure what consistency to make it, how to apply it to the cookies, etc - so I just kept adding corn syrup little by little till I thought it would work, and apparently it did. Got rave reviews! Painted it on with a paint brush. Now I have more experience and pastry bags and tips, so I will try it again with some experience under my belt. Definitely tastier than royal icing!!

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
So easy and delicious! I like mine a little sweeter and spicier so I added more sugar and crushed red pepper.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
I thought these sounded so bizarre that they must be good in a weird way...but they were mostly just weird. I really wanted to like these, but I think the recipe would need some major adjustments to make me want to try them again. Maybe it needs some acidity and brightness - like lime juice, maybe some cilantro?? Needs something though.

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
Gourmet! My family was crowding around the oven in anticipation of these little gems. Everyone had one with some butter and honey while they were still warm. Later that night when I made our burgers and we ate the burgers on these, my hubby and I kept saying, "These are the best burgers we've ever had!!". By the way, I used bread flour because I have a huge bag to use up, and they were deliciously chewy.

Creamy Italian Dressing I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Tasty!! I will never buy dressing at the store again. My only complaint is that I thought it was a tad bit too sweet. Easy fix, though:). Thanks for sharing!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
Very good!! I have to add veggies to everything, so I added red bell pepper and mushroom. Also thought it needed spices, so I added some herbs and salt and pepper. Delish!
