To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2004
Ohhh.... these were truly yummy! I used a little more milk than the recipe called for - about 1/2 cup, maybe? The consistency of the batter was fine. 1 cup blueberries is perfect; any more and I feel they would fall apart. I used brown sugar for the topping, and this made the tops very crunchy and yummy. Also, use COLD butter or margarine for the topping and you shouldn't have the problem of melting. I baked them at 375 F.... 400 just seemed too hot to me. I got 10 medium muffins from this recipe. I've already eaten 2! Eat them over the sink... they are crumbly yummy goodness!

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
I made these for Father's Day but forgot to come back here and review the recipe! These pancakes were AMAZING, the best I've ever made or eaten. They were delicious - very light and fluffy. I doubled the recipe, but used only 1 egg, per the previous reviews. This is my "pancake keeper" recipe! Thank you!

Bacon Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Very quick and easy to assemble. Family loved it (honestly, I didn't think they'd go for breakfast at dinner but they did!). Served it with warm bread and a green salad. Could be easily adapted to whatever veggies you have.

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
Nice flavor, easy as any other biscuit. I froze my stick of butter and shredded it in instead of cutting it in. Worked fine.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
Easy to prepare, fun to roll. I used all the cream of tartar called for, and I found them too salty. Next time, I may omit it altogether or at least reduce it. I will certainly make them again. **UPDATE**: I made these again because hubby asked for them, and put in 1 teaspoon of lemon juice instead of the cream of tartar. Very good.

Zucchini Pineapple Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
This was a basic, simple zucchini loaf. It was tender and rose well. I did not add the walnuts due to allergies. It seemed a bit dry going into the pan - was concerned, but seemed to bake up OK. Will make again.

PHILADELPHIA® 3-STEP® Key Lime Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Easy and delicious. I followed the recipe but doubled up on the lime zest and juice. I decorated with Cool Whip I piped from a piping bag, and grated lime peel. It was beautiful. Everyone loved it.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2003
Wow! This was delicious. I have made enchiladas before and was disappointed, but these were phenominal and my husband LOVED them. I made a few changes; I didn't have sour cream, chilies, or garlic powder (imagine!) so I left them out and it was fine. I also found the filling to be too little for 6, so I made 5 enchiladas. I sautéed some chicken strips with spices (chili powder, Mrs. Dash!) and also added extra seasoning to the sauce. I baked the enchiladas for about 25 minutes and they were not soggy at all. Great meal with a green salad. Yum!

Fruit Pizza I

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2003
Delicious! Although I feel kind of bad because I didn't follow the recipe... it ended up not being Anne's recipe at all, but it was a great foundation to build on! I substituted pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough; I also substituted for the cream cheese - the store was out of plain cream cheese (can you believe it?) so I bought some Berry-flavored spreadable light cream cheese. Oh, it was delicious! And I topped with canned pineapple slices (cut in half), fresh mandarin orange slices, sliced fresh kiwi, red seedless grapes, and banana. It looked pretty and professional and was easy to cut, serve, and fun to eat! Everyone (adults and kids) enjoyed this yummy dessert pizza. 5 stars!!!!

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2003
Very quick to assemble! An incredibly easy recipe that disappears fast! I think next time, I would add raisins and bake it in an 8X8 pan; the bars were cake-like in texture, but quite thin. I also drizzled the icing as opposed to spreading it and this looked very pretty and professional. UPDATE: I made these bars again as I had some applesauce to use up. I baked in an 8 x 9 inch pan for 22 minutes. They were perfectly moist and delicious. I did not frost them but sprinkled icing sugar on top. Compliments from my family and guest.

Peach Cobbler VI

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2003
Took this to a casual dinner party and it was easy to make and delicious. I used 6 fresh peaches, sweetened them a little to get the juices flowing, and topped the finished cobbler with a little whipped cream. Everyone complimented me and couldn't have been simpler. Thank you.

Burmese Chicken Curry (Gaeng Gai Bama)

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I don't like to review a recipe when I have changed it, but this one had great "bones" and we enjoyed it very much. Did not use the shallots, fresh tomatoes, or cilantro, but DID use the curry paste, curry powder, and coconut milk as directed; I also used a small can of diced tomatoes instead. Thickened it up with a little flour in the cocount milk and stirred it in. Served it with sticky rice, and cole slaw. Will make again! Dee-lish.

Half and Halfs

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Great idea, fun cookies. My substitution was to use shortening. The family thought they were cute and gobbled them up.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
WOW! This soup was amazing. Hubby proclaimed it both "awesome" and "outstanding". I made it as directed except I used fresh broccoli. It was thick and delicious. I know it will be in regular rotation. NOTE to those who are adding condensed soup, yuk! It doesn't need it for taste, and it's not necessary. It thickens beautifully and tastes great. Condensed soups are artificial and so not needed here. Obviously IMO. Thanks.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2003
This is the simplest of recipes and extremely delicious! We used Spartan apples, and added the sugar and cinnamon after cooking so as not to overdo it. We puréed the apples in the food processor and the applesauce turned out very well. Yummy!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2003
This was SO good! We need more than five stars here! The sauce was delicious and it doubled easily (recommended). What a delicious combination of flavors. My only substitutions were to use regular vinegar and lower-sodium soy sauce, and it turned out great. I pour the entire amount of sauce on at once and let it bake until the chicken is done - so easy this way. Be sure to line your pan with a double layer of foil for easy clean-up. I serve it with sticky rice and broccoli - the family LOVES this and requests it often.

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
My ONLY difference was to use mini M&M baking bits - I did not have chocolate chips. They were great - soft, chewy, great texture. Do not overbake! Remember they continue to bake on the pan. Take them out at exactly 7 minutes, let them cool one minute, remove. Perfect!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
I wasn't expecting anything better than my usual biscuit recipe, but I found these to be moist and light. The texture before rolling and after baking was soft and silky. I got 12 small biscuits, but next time will try for 8 big bicuits. My advice is to portion the dough into pieces and shape into biscuits instead of rolling and cutting; rolling them always means leftover scaps. Good biscuits! Thank you.

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Absolutely delicious - will definitely make again. Followed the recipe as closely as I could but did not have the bay leaf or the cayenne pepper and it was still fine. I doubled the recipe because we like a lot of sauce, and it was the perfect amount. I also added a bit more sugar (I guess about 1/4 cup) and that seemed to balance out the spiciness of the dish. Served it with basmati rice and Naan bread. Yummy! ***UPDATE***: Have made this many times now. I now use vanilla/mango yogurt as this adds a nice sweetness to the dish. I do not add the lemon and cayenne pepper at the end, and I have made it successfully without the tomato paste. Also, if you don't have fresh ginger, you can use powdered ginger if you have it. But fresh ginger is wonderful and if you buy it in bulk it is very inexpensive.

Chicken Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2006
This was very good. I followed the recipe plus added extra salt and pepper, a little poultry seasoning, and used light cream instead of milk as suggested. The only thing I did wrong was to place the pie crust directly on top of the filling, instead of above it. The crust got soggy and didn't brown nicely when the filling bubbled up. However, the taste was great and the family enjoyed it.
