One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This is a VERY easy, VERY chocolaty cake. It's the best recipe I've come across so far for a basic chocolate cake. It's moist and yummy. I was really worried because it cooked over the sides of my pans (used the 9" as stated), but I trimmed the layers up and it frosted beautifully. I made a chocolate buttercream frosting with a white chocolate filling. Too chocolatly for me, but my daughter requested it for her birthday.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
So easy they can be thrown together in no time! I put them in a muffin pan and made 12 blondie cupcakes. Not the prettiest outcome (the centers sunk in slightly), but they are very tasty. Followed the recipe, except used milk chocolate chunks. I'll use this recipe again.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This is a very good recipe. The muffins are very tender and moist. Good flavor. The topping, however, it a bit much. Too crunchy - I think next time I will half the topping or double the batter. Would use this a base for other muffins. This one is a keeper.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
Pretty good - tasted better the next morning. It is very similar to a blueberry muffin with crunch topping. Suggestion: The topping get nice and crunchy, but when it's cut...it breaks off in a sheet. I think next time I will put down 1/2 batter, 1/2 topping then rest of batter then topping to make more like a coffee cake.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I just made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. I put it in a 9" springform pan - very easy. I put a small glass dish of water in the oven rather than a water bath and it turned out a great. No cracks on the top either! It is not as sweet as I expected, so I may put caramel sauce on top next time to serve.

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
These are the BEST! I don't like pb cookies, but made them for a bake sale. They were delicious. I made one batch plain and one with chocolate chips. I must say, the chocolate chip ones tasted just like a peanut butter cup when they are warm out of the oven. The cookie itself, warm and peanut buttery, and the chips give just enough chocolate to make it divine. I will definetly put this one in my EXCLUSIVE recipe journal!

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2003
This is great hot chocolate! Put it in a nice jar, decorated with ribbon and a tag for directions - and it makes a perfect addition to cookies for Christmas gift giving. Nice and creamy, this mix should recommend mixing with hot milk rather than water.

Chocolate Candy Bar Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2003
OK, personally, this wasn't my favorite cake, but everyone else loved it. (The only thing I didn't care for was the frosting, but I am a member of the buttercream fan club...I am spoiled!) The frosting is very light and the nuts and chocolate are a nice surprise. The cake is moist and dense, so it makes for a great combination.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2003
This was a good tasting meal, but there was something missing. It had an Asian taste, so I served it with brown rice. I did make the sauce in a saucepan, thickened with a little cornstarch mixture, and then pour it over the chicken. The chicken produces so much liquid, though, that the "sticky" sauce becomes watery and slides right off the chicken. I ended up, half way through the baking, taking the chicken, putting it on a broiler pan, and basting it often with the sticky sauce. I wish I would have done this the entire baking time to ensure the chicken had plenty of this good tasting sauce. (NOTE: I used boneless, skinless breast.)

Apple Butter I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2003
This apple butter has a great flavor and a fabulous aroma. My house has never smelled more like "autumn." I do want to say, though, that this recipe is really sweet. Almost a little too sweet, and I even altered the recipe. I used 12 apples and 3 c. sugar. I think I would still use my 12/3 ratio next time, but use Granny Smith apples or another apple that is less sweet than the red delicious I used this time.

Sunday Best Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2003
This fruit salad was perfect! The best part about it is that there is no REAL recipe. The peach pie filling, which by the way seemed like it might ruin the salad, really makes the whole thing! I made this to go along with our cookout for my 2 year old's birthday party. It was gone in no time, and I thought I had way too much. I used fresh blueberries, kiwi, oranges, strawberries, grapes and on and on! Not only was it great, it was beautiful served in a trifle dish, as you could see all of the bright colors!

Blizzard Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2003
My mom always made this when I was growing up. Another variation is to pour caramel ice cream topping on it and top with whipped cream and cherries. It is good, but, personally, I like it the way it is!

Clark Gable Pancakes

Reviewed: May 31, 2003
OK, these pancakes were GREAT, but here is the deal: I made some modifications. (SOME is actually an understatement!) Here is the recipe I used: 1 1/4 c. flour, 1 Tb. baking powder, 1/4 ts. salt, 1 egg (beaten), 1 c. milk, 2 Tb. veg oil, 1 1/2 c. shredded apple, 1 ts. cinnamon, 1 ts. vanilla, and 2 Tb. brown sugar. Unlike other results, these pancakes were great! The batter was a little runny, but I liked it better that way because the pancakes weren't too fluffy and floury tasting. Hope this helps...enjoy!

Baked Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: May 4, 2003
This was the best recipe yet! I did add about 1/4 cup of mayo, just to make it a bit moist, since it was a little dry. I put all of the parm cheese in the dip and topped with mozz. I sliced petite sourdough bread and toasted in the oven for a perfect combonation with the dip.

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: May 4, 2003
I didn't taste this because I don't like most of the ingredients, but everyone else really loved it. I tripled the jalapeno measurements, due to taste standards. Make a night or two ahead of time and mix occasionally to help marinate evenly.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: May 4, 2003
I can never find key limes or juice, so I have invented this into my boo-boo pie. I use lemon juice or half lemon/half lime and it always turns out great! It is very sweet and rich, but the tang makes it the perfect combo!

Run For The Roses Pie III

Reviewed: May 2, 2003
This, although tasty, isn't quite what I consider to be a traditional Derby Pie. Derby Pie is a little more moist and fudgy than this lighter version. (Almost a brownie texture) Walnuts are traditional, but I think pecans would have been better. (Just a matter of taste.) Keep it authentic and use a small-batch Kentucky Bourbon. (I used Woodford Reserve.) Make sure you serve warm with a scoop of vanilla bean. Enjoy...and make sure to wear your flashy hat!

Coconut Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2003
How easy can it get? This is great for those last minute summer cook-outs. My husband loves from scratch Coconut Cream Pie, and he said that this was right up there. Want even better pie? Melt 2 oz. semi-seet baker's chocolate, 1 tbsp. milk and 1 tbsp. butter in the microwave and pour in bottom of cooled pie crust before adding coconut mixture. Sprinkle top of pie with sliced almonds...and YUM!

Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
Used this recipe for a wedding reception recently. Everyone loved them. Fancy, yet simple. I don't like crab meat, but even I ate 3 of these. Had mounds of stuffing and garlic butter drizzle left over, and we even cut the butter down by 3 cups.

California Party Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
Used this recipe for a wedding reception recently. I needed something. It has potential, but it just didn't meet my expectations.
