Roxie's Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This is a really good bran muffin recipe and very easy although I did make some changes. I didn't have bananas so I subbed in 1/3 cup of vanilla yogourt and added 1/2 tsp of vanilla, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp baking powder. I also used white flour and subbed blueberries instead of raisins. They were very moist and tasty. I did bake them at 400 but they were ready in 15 minutes. I'll keep this in my files and definately make again.

Macaroni and Cheese V

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2006
I have made this dish many times and love it. I like to use strong, white cheddar and top it off with finely crushed Ritz crackers and sliced tomatoes. It makes a wonderful side dish or a main course for lunch.

Lemon Lover's Pound Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
This is the best pound cake I have made to date. I served it to the members of a club I belong to and it was gone in literally minutes. I baked it for the full 60 minutes and then turned the oven off and left it for another 1/2 hour with the oven door open. I didn't have time to ice it but next time I will drizzle it with lemon glaze. Thanks for a great recipe, I'll use it often.

Rich Chocolate Brownies

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
I have made this recipe again and again. I followed the tip from babyjaimie and used 5 eggs and no baking powder for a double batch. I also drizzled caramel sundae topping over top of the batter and swirled in before baking. I ice it with a vanilla bean butter icing and I have to tell you....they are out of this world. Thanks for a great recipe!

Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2006
This was so easy to make and turned out wonderfully. I used a bundt pan and ended up baking it 10 minutes longer than the recipe says. This is an excellent cake to make for a picnic and is delicious served with fruit.

Apple Pie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2005
I made these for my husband who loves apples and they were a big hit. Great for dessert or with morning coffee. Note: The recipe should read 1 1/2 tablespoons (not teaspoons)milk for the glaze.

Canadian Shortbread 'Eh'

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
I tried this recipe again and made a few changes. I added 1/2 tsp. of maple extract to the maple syrup to add taste. Then, when the cookies were almost cooled, I glazed them with a mixture of sifted icing sugar, milk and maple extract. Use the back of a spoon to spread over cookie, then let set. These turned out wonderful! I cut them in the shape of maple leaves.

Blonde Brownies III

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I made a couple of changes to bring this recipe closer to another I have for chocolate brownies that is very successful. I omitted the baking powder and increased the eggs to 5. I also decreased the flour to 2 1/2 cups. I added 1 tspn vanilla extract, 1 cup walnuts and 1 cup white chocolate chips. They were a big hit. Another keeper. Thanks!

Jack's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
I rated this a 5 because my husband loved them so much. He is the cookie expert. I thought that it was an overdose of chocolate chips but if you're into chocolate then you'll love these. Be sure not to overbake. Thanks for the superb recipe.

Maple Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
My husband loved these pancakes. He said that cooking them perfectly is half the battle. I think they turned out great so gave it a 5 rating. I subbed the veg oil with melted butter and added 1/2 tsp maple extract. I sifted the dry ingredients to avoid lumps. It's very important not to overmix when blending in the wet ingredients.

Candied Apples II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2014
I've been making a version of this recipe for almost 50 years and my mother used to make 150 at a time for Hallowe'en. The trick is, and it's missing here, is to add a teaspoon of vinegar to the candy at the very end, when it reaches hard crack stage. Don't stir the mixture while it's boiling until it reaches this stage. Then stir in the vinegar and start dipping the apples. This step keeps the candy hard and is crucial to a good candy apple. Also, we use regular corn syrup, not the light AND we did not use any water in our recipe, it doesn't need it. We decorated the apples with cut gumdrops to make faces. Our house was the most popular one in town solely because of our candy apples. After reading my review, I realize my version is quite different. I should just submit my own. Oh well, use my version if you like, it's been tried and true for many, many years. My apologies to those people who don't like changes to a recipe.

Walnut Cheesecake Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
These cookies are delicious. Use a processer to get fine walnut crumbs. A little messy to make but definitely worth it.

Chicken Crunch

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
This dish turned out better then I had anticipated. I used Kingshorses suggestion and made a white sauce to add to 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. I used 5 bone-in chicken breasts and added frozen mixed vegetables. With crushed Ritz crackers on top this dish was delish! My husband gobbled it up and we have leftovers for tonight. Very easy recipe to prepare.

Scandinavian Almond Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
I've made these bars six or seven times now and have added this recipe to my "favorites" recipe box. Everyone in my family raves about them and prefers them to all other cookies and bars. I make the icing thicker by reducing the milk to 2 tablespoons and then drizzling it on. To make them more colorful I tint the icing pink. Wonderful recipe!

Lemon Raspberry Jumbo Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
This recipe is definitely a keeper. I subbed the half-n-half with coconut milk and at the last minute sprinkled the tops with white chocolate chips. 23 minutes at 400 in a jumbo muffin pan. Made 6 large muffins. I am eating one right now and deem it delish!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2004
My husband and I loved this recipe. It makes alot so splitting it in two would be a good idea. I used a pizza stone and let it rise a second time. This is definately a keeper.

Sandy's Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2002
This was a very easy recipe to make with excellent results. My husband loved it. I substituted a can of cream of mushroom soup for one of the chicken and used leftover cooked chicken. Adding salt and pepper brings out the flavours. I will definately make this again.

Southern Butter Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2014
Turned out perfectly. Used warm water as it just makes sense. I also subbed softened butter for the shortening. Brushed the tops with melted butter before baking. Baked at 375 for 15 minutes. Made 15 nice sized rolls.
