Colored Sugar

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
What's also great is one can make the color they want for the theme they are working with. Use black color paste (not sure if that's what it is called) for example if one needed black sugar. A lovely lilac instead of just purple, or a deep blue.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
I detest Brussels sprouts. This recipe made them edible and enjoyable, to a point. The darker the outside, the better, for those of us who do not like Brussels sprouts. I place mine on a rack and don't bother with shaking the pan, because I'm lazy. I'm so pleased I tried this recipe. Thank you for posting it. Replace oil with garlic butter, or garlic oil for a different flavor. Be sure whatever you add can take the heat, I'm not sure any herbs would work, for example. One could toss them into an herb butter afterwards, and parm cheese, for example.

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2002
I almost passed this recipe up because I read that it is made the night before. I didn't like the ingredients in the other recipies (boxed cake mixes, etc) so I came back to this one. I made them yesterday and am making them now as I write this. I didn't store them, I made them the same day. I let the dough rise til doubled and then punched it down and rolled it out. I then let it rest and rolled it out again before continuing. The bread is tender. My old recipe came out as hard and that's why I was searching for a new recipe. This is it. I have no need to look for another cinnamon roll recipe. I did have to use a larger then 8 X 8 pan. Thanks Sharon for this recipe.

Butter Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2003
Butter and eggs are what to look for in a cake recipe. This isn't a light froo froo cake. Use good quality ingredients like real vanilla and it's great. (I often add more vanilla than a recipe calls for) Someone said it was like corn bread, it's dense like corn bread but soft, not grainy and it certainly did not taste like flour, it tasted like a vanilla flavored cake (sweet). This cake will hold up to shaping. It is great alone but frosting is always nice too. The only difference in my ingredients, is I don't ever have milk on hand, I used powdered milk, not really a difference. Do not make if you like lighter than air, froo froo cake.

Pumpkin Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
I haven't tried this but didn't want to lower the rating so I rated it 5 stars. One can sub Greek yougurt for the milk or some of the milk to up the health benifits and hide the taste of the Greek yogurt. I can't have pumpkin due to the glycemic index however I bet this smoothie is delicious.

Ginger Snaps II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
I lost my mother's ginger snap recipe. I then obviously came to allrecipes.com I found this one and knew it was a bit different but the ingredients were good so I tried them. They came out thin and crispy, just the way I wanted them. My mother's were not so thin and crispy as I suspect her recipe used butter and not shortening. My DH commented they were just a bit too sweet but I did decorate them with colored sugar. PLEASE NOTE: I used 1 Tbs cinnamon and 2 tsp ginger. I did bake them 3-5 minutes longer but since these cookies crack when baked, it's almost obvious when they are done or need more baking. Best when cooled and thus more crispy!

Maple Walnut Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
These are a light, delicate flavored muffin. The maple is faint which should be obvious if you look at the ingredients amounts. When I made these as taste tested one, I couldn't stop 'taste testing' them. They remind me of white cake, my favorite. The person I made them for doesn't like things that are 'too sweet' but liked these. I made a second batch with a little less sugar and again, they were great. If I were making these for me, I wouldn't change a thing. This recipe is going into my recipe folder. It's a keeper.

Kristen's Awesome Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
The reason why I tried this recipe is because another reviewer stated it was like the recipe on the OLD oatmeal containers. I was making this for a friend who said he didn't like oatmeal cookies anymore because all the recipes were for cake like cookies and cookies are suppose to be crisp. The shortening really does it. I don't like oatmeal cookies myself but I am very happy to have found this recipe. I think kids old enough to cook can easily make this drop cookie recipe, thus 5 stars.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I agree with the person who said just use choclate and add nothing. Also, I am baffled that people are able to use toothpicks. Mine fall out but maybe it's due to the fact that I don't use shortening. I just use my hand to hold them. This is a easy, inexpesive treat. Guys, make this for your girls on Valetine's day and she will think you are one of a kind! PS. Many people think coconut oil is healthy so one may substitute that for the shortening.

Eggplant Burgers

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
I can't eat bread. But if I could, I'd toast the hamburger buns. I might also add some garlic to the buttered buns before toasting to make a garlic toasted bun.

Chicken with Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
I am trying to get into cooking while chronic fatigue of unknown origin is controlling my life. This recipe was appealing as there was no work in it. It tasted ok to me. Nothing fantastic but lately nothing does. What I require recipes for, mostly, is the cooking time. This cooked perfectly in 4 hours. I just used a package of chicken, I didn't notice the weight. Next time I will sprinkle pepper on the chicken, put the cream of chicken soup in first and place the chicken in. I will then flip the chicken over so both sides are covered in the soup. I will also double the stuffing and thus the water. Thank you for posting this no fuss recipe. Update: I'm making this today and to add some flavor I added 1 packet of dry onion soup mix.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
This is similar to the icing I used except the light corn syrup. I guess it adds sheen. I won't use this again only because mine has less ingredients and I'm looking for a more designer icing. Mine uses powder sugar, cream and vanilla. Not a bad icing at all and do not add more light corn syrup to thin but more milk if you need to.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
These are close to my Nonnie's sugar cookies. Her's takes cream and not cream cheese. I could not taste the cream cheese however there is a bit of an advantage as the dough is easier to work with. One does not have to refrig over night. Once the center of the dough is the temp that the refrig is set at, there's no need to take longer. My recipe calls for 1 hour so I suspect 2 hours is enough but over night is fine if you are too busy to make the same day. Set out for about 15 minutes and kneed to make soft enough to roll out. Mine spread just a little bit which surprised me so be sure to have 1" between cookies. I think this is a nice recipe however I'm sticking with mine as I also use cream for the frosting as well.

Michelle's Famous Washed Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
This recipe is close to the one I've always used. The one I used uses only 1 cup of water but sub cranberry juice and don't add any sugar as my BF dislikes anything remotely sweet. So if you like it less runny, only use 1 cup of water. Please do try this recipe if you've only had canned "cranberry sauce".

Whole Wheat Pumpkin-Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
I will be making these again, today, with some tweaks. I did not make the recipe as listed so let me give the details. I made a test batch 3 days ago. I am making a batch today for a holiday party tomorrow, hence the test batch. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all purpose flour. For the party I will be doing that again but hope to make them with 100% whole wheat for here at home someday soon. I don't stock pumpkin pie spice so I added 2 tsp cinnimon, 1/2 tsp ground ginger and 1/2 tsp ground nut meg. I knew from experience this wasn't enough spice but my brain was mushy that day and I didn't listen to myself. The muffins turned out wonderful in a light pumplin flavor and I adore the dense texture. However, the spices probably need to be trippled to be tasted. No spice taste what so ever with the small amount I used. The muffins were even more flavorful (but not spice wise) the next day. I see that I could have stretched, if needed, the recipe into 18 muffins. I really like the texture and the generous size the 12 muffins it makes. As with most recipes one should make them their own with personal tweaks. This recipe is a keeper for me with some tweaks I plan on making in regards to the spices. Thank you for posting this whole wheat recipe.

Momma's Poor Man's Lasagne

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
I've made a variation of this for years. Although mine is fairly different, I wanted to suggest using a 14.5 oz can of fire roasted tomatoes. One can drain it and reserve the liquid, freezing it in an ice cube tray for other uses. I then blend the tomatoes as I'm not a tomato fan, and add it in replacement of the tomato sauce. I use fire roasted tomatoes in a can for everything that requires sauce or canned tomatoes. Thank you VH for posting this recipe.

Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
I don't do this recipe but I use a dehydrator set at around 135F. I do not know how long it takes for them to crisp. I suggest using 4mm blade in a food processor to cut them. Also, cut the zuc in half and then lay them long wise down in the food processor. The first time I made them, I used 2mm and cut the standard rounds. They were too thin and small to pick up. They just disintegrated. These are a great crunchy snack that is low glycemic, slightly sweet. I think yellow squash would work great too so whatever is on sale or that you grow. Children will even love this snack. I suggest everyone try it once.

No Bake Fudge Cookies

Reviewed: May 30, 2005
This is the No Bake cookie recipe I grew up with minus the raisins. Be sure to boil at a full rolling boil for the 1 minute or they will not harden. If that does happen, have fun eating with a spoon. (Can you tell it happens to me every once in a while? I also live in a humid climate and that might contribute to those times).
