Amish Friendship Bread Starter

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I just used this starter with the Amish Chocolate Bread found on this site. I only added 1 cup mini chocolate chips and otherwise followed that recipe. It is great. My starter worked out perfectly. I have seen several variations of the 10 day process, and they have all worked well. I'm glad to finally find a starter recipe I can begin on my own!

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Cinnabons are good, but I like these better! I used my bread machine on dough setting for the first time. The dough was EASY to work with, light and fluffy when baked. I will add a bit more cinnamon next time, that's what WE like! Also, next time, I'll only use half the box of pudding, as the recipe stated. I've made lots of cinnamon roll recipes, and none have turned out like these did! Thanks for this recipe!

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
This is a delicious real cream ice cream. I have tried several and this will be the keeper. I did take the suggestions of other readers by dissolving the sugar in 1/4 cup water. I also will try the gelatin to help it set up better. The hardening process is a bit tough for me to get right. I like to do it in the machine, packed in salt and ice. It is a great recipe!

Refried Beans Without the Refry ala Becca

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
I just put on the 4th pot of these beans. This time I've mixed pintos and black beans. I did adjust the salt by half and added more cumin for our tastes. We have never made refried out of these beans. We end up eating them as bean soup and the leftovers seem to disappear in lunches. Thanks for this great basic recipe. It's wonderful!

Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
This cake is very tasty and very big! I baked mine in a 13x9 pan and it rose an inch over the top. It did not run over, but it came close! The streusel was a good amount. Next time I'll swirl it around some in the pan after layering the batter/streusel. Everyone at work enjoyed it!

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Wow, I just made this frosting with the cocoa. It is quick, easy, and delicious. It is a great basic frosting that is forgiving; too thin? add some powdered sugar, too thick, a few drops of milk. Great recipe, I'll use this one all the time! I used half & half instead of milk, it worked great!

Amish Friendship Chocolate Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This is a great variation on the standard recipes. Husband loved it! Only change I made was to add 1 cup mini chocolate chips to the batter. Thanks for this recipe.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
I think this was a great base recipe. We like hot and spicy, but I was cautious and used two cans of chilis, no jalapenos. We really liked this soup. Spice it up or tame it down. Thanks!

Frozen Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I just made these muffins. I searched for a recipe that used frozen blueberries as I had them on hand. I followed the recipe exactly, but did not use the ginger/sugar on top. I did use the granulated sparkling sugar since we don't care for gingery flavors. Hubby is in heaven on earth for the moment. I got 12 regular and 6 jumbo muffins from this recipe. They are moist, flavorful and hard to keep from eating one after the other :) Even though there is just two in our household, bet I have a tough time getting many into the freezer! Try this and enjoy! 7/28/09: I tried a recipe from a country cookbook and it did not compare to this one at all! What a waste of time it was, but this one is the bomb! No more new recipes for blueberry muffins at our house!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2014
I used this instead of a prepared packaged mix. It is delish! I used about half of this for a casserole. I won't buy packaged again!

The Best Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
This recipe is great. I made adjustments by adding 1/4 cup flour, and doubled the baking soda as suggested by others. I did refrigerate the dough and did not have spreading issues at all. The second batch I used crasins, white vanilla chips and fresh orange zest and oh what a great combo! To keep them from getting too hard, do not overbake. They will not look done, but the time on the cookie sheets finishes them. Also, thank you to the reviewer who suggested truly "beating" the sugars and butters for several minutes. I did, using my KitchenAid and stirred the rest of the ingredients by hand. Hubby is munching them and has a bag packed for work tomorrow! UPDATED 2/14/09: I tried Soft Oatmeal Cookies from this site and it is also very good. Hard to pick a favorite, both are great! So 5 stars for both recipes!

Country Pound Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
For me, this recipe was quite easy. I used my KitchenAid mixer to cream the butter/sugar for 6 minutes. This is the second time I've used this recipe and hubby loves it, so do I. We prefer a stronger vanilla flavor so I omitted the lemon and added more vanilla. It's great! Thanks for another great recipe.

Roasted Turkey Legs

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This was a very tasty way to prepare turkey legs. I made the sauce, but didn't have the pomengranate molases, so I used half regular molasses and half honey to make up the difference. I used fresh sage. I basted the legs 3 times during the roasting. Hubby said they were great too! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
This recipe was fast and good. It will be a keeper at our house. I also used the Pillsbury Italian bread loaf that others mentioned, simply for time savings. Husband loved it and suggested we try canadian bacon, swiss cheese and a smear of mustard next time. Works for me!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
Followed this recipe exactly, adding only 1 cup dried cranberries, 1 cup white chips and 1/2 TBS fresh orange zest. Baking for the shortest time produces a soft cookie, the longer you bake, the more crisp and dry it becomes, so you are in control of how they turn out in that respect. Hubby says, THIS is also a keeper as well as The Best Oatmeal Cookie recipe. I love recipes that allow me to add my own extra flavorings but produce a great result on their own. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Both get 5 stars, too hard to choose!
