Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce III

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
OMG. This was so good. It's big. It rose while cooking & lifted the lid off in the oven. So good. Mmmm. Could have made half for family of 5. Also, took about 2 hours to bake for me. It's very moist- just like a bread pudding souffle. Thank you!

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2004
Good recipe. No need to alter but note: to solve flattening problems, my aunt gave me a great tip. When I covered it with damp cloth, rolls had risen, cloth had dried, and they were stuck. If you attempt to move the cloth, air will get out and rolls will flatten. Aunt said to spray/wet cloth again until very moist, then slowly peel off cloth. It worked! Made and served them yesterday for Christmas Dinner and they got rave reviews from everybody. Also a very easy recipe to make. Good luck and enjoy! And thanks to Aunt Cathey for her sage advice.

Perfect White Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2004
No exagerration- this is the BEST bread I've ever had in my life. It beats the loaves I had in a San Francisco bakery. It is also easily the best bread I've made. I can't believe it came from my own hands. I have been making bread for 8 years and no mix, nor scratch recipe ever equalled this. It is unbelievable. I gave up my bread machine last year and am thrilled, thrilled with this recipe. Nothing that I have tried has turned out half as good as this. The texture is light, yet moist. Note that I did let it rise quite a bit longer before baking (I went shopping) probably 2 hours. Also, in light of previous review I let the loaves rise in the oven, so I started the oven with them in there at 400 (no pre-heat). I baked it for 40 minutes (again, no pre-heat). Oh, wow, I don't even know what to say. Thank you, Donna. Your recipe is the best!

Angel Biscuit Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
Excellent, awesome recipe! Son and I made them together, so we had a few accidents: an extra TB of sugar, and double the yeast & baking soda amounts. They are super good, though. Mmmm.

Pork Chop and Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2004
Good basic recipe. I agree it needs more seasoning and also I altered the cooking. Here's the details. I seasoned the potatoes, pre-sauteed the onions, mixed them with the soup and some of the cheese and cooked without the chops for 40 minutes. Then I added my pre-seasoned/browned chops on top for about 20 minutes. For the rest of the cheese, I added it to the top of the potatoes as I served them, if requested. It turned out perfect! Have fun.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
This recipe tastes so good you won't care about anything else. They are a bit thin- esp the last two that I cooked. Next time, I think I will omit the plain milk. FOr the record, though, my husband said don't change a thing, my 12-yr old "shovel it down" actually noticed and requested these again, and my 2-yr old who does not eat pancakes had an entire one to herself. Yuuuuuum!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2004
I've made these twice now. Both times, they failed to rise as noted. First time the flavor was good but they were hard and crunchy. 2nd time I bought a new can of baking powder and the texture was better but there was a real bitter flavor to them. I am going to keep looking for another recipe, though it was fun to try and make the biggest biscuits ever! Good luck if you do!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2003
I am very happy to say this recipe taste is perfect, absolutely perfect- and this comes from a picky pancake perfectionist. The batter, however, is too thick. Thin it out with around 1 C more milk at least. Even so- there are none left in the house tonight and it's a big batch, too. These make a great Fall dinner pancake. Good luck and happy eating!

Hello Dollies I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2003
I have made this recipe twice and both times it did not turn out so great. My two pieces of advice are to not add the sugar to the crust. If you do, try brown sugar and less of it, as the first time the white sugar actually was kind of crunchy. Brown sugar generally melts better. Second, add more butter to the crust. Both times the crust is not crusty and both times the bars fall apart. Also, I didn't like the condensed milk on top of the coconut. It's still got potential. My changes to recipe are pretty substantial but if you are interested they include about 1/8 a cup of brown sugar instead of white sugar, more butter (1/2 stick to a stick more- until it is pretty moist), a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. Smoosh it into pan. I layered crust with a 16 oz bag of milk choc chips, then about 8-10 oz halved walnuts. I poured the condensed milk on the nuts and chocolate and sprinkled cocount on top. It came out much better with a nice golden toasted coconut flavor- I thought. I did my best to reserve a tougher judgment on the outcome but feel the crust issues make a 3-star vs a higher rating. Good luck!

Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2003
I wish there were more than 5-stars- I would give it that! And note: I vegged for 7 years and HATE tempeh. I used it and you couldn't taste it at all. Note also that I used my own spices (cumin, bit of oregano, chile powder) and that gave it a bit more flavor, perhaps. Also- only cooked it uncovered for 5 minutes- not 15. I further varied recipe by cutting up tortillas and mixing all together, adding another can of [pinto] beans, a larger can of green chiles, no garlic or jalepeno (kids!), and topping with the onions (leaving half the top no onion/olives for-sigh- the kids again). I also generously greased my pan, spread some sauce around bottom, used the rest on top with listed amount of cheese and had no dry bits anywhere top or bottom. Served the adults with lettuce, tomato and sour cream on top. Excellent recipe- even scarfed up by my normally no Mexican food son. This will absolutely be a staple one in my house. Enjoy!

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2003
I followed this recipe closely and would say- less butter! It was literally floating in it. And I cook with vats of butter. Even with that, it's yummy. Note that mine came out about the consistancy of mashed potatoes- and with the butter, a bit runny at that. I would also prefer maybe bacon or smaller (trace) pieces of ham. Enjoy!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2003
I give this a 3-star, sorry. It's good- don't get me wrong- but not great in my house. Son and husband love salmon and thought this was good but not the best. I personally would do it with less topping and be sure to be very generous with glaze. I did follow the recipe to a tee, too, which is unusual for me! Don't be afraid to give it a try, as you may love it, but I'm not going to make it again. Good luck!

Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2003
I give this 5-stars based on the ratings of my 12yr old son & his friends. They loved it! I, too, omitted the oregano & also used chicken breast tenders. I was suspect of the breading, based on reviews but it was perfect (thin and crispy). The boys ate it all up & gave it 10 plus rating. Very easy and tasty. We adults enjoyed it, too.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2003
OK- here's my saga. I totally disagree with negative feedback on this recipe. I made major mistakes and it still turned out great. What did I do wrong you ask? Well... way too much sour cream (when it cooks it thickened and it was great), too much cheese, ingredients in the wrong order, no onion- just onion powder, and wrong kind of pasta. Regardless of all this, the kids were waiting for it when it came out of the oven. I served it to family (2 picky kids) and neighbor and all ate 2 platefuls. Not too cheesy or saucy at all. Did cook for 20 minutes longer. Biggest hint from me: use a good sauce, as most store boughts are gross. Good luck!

Southern Living magazine's Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2003
Overall a good recipe. Was a little soupy; had to cook it longer and children did not like the seasoning (worc & mustard). Will not use them next time. Good standard recipe & you can change it up with ham or bacon, too.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2003
The BEST banana bread recipe I've tried to make. Texture/flavor is perfect; it even rose. I didn't have all the banana and put in some whole wheat flour & it was awesome. Did add vanilla to taste (which means a lot) and some cinnamon and nutmeg (a touch). The basic recipe, though, is a real winner. Also I cut bake time to 55 minutes and may even cut that to 48-50 minutes next time. Bon chance!

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2002
These cookies are GOOD. They may be the BEST cookies I've ever had. I'm not big on peanut butter, either. Ouch! They are unbelievable. One note- they took much longer to cook. After the first 8 minutes I cooked in 2 minute intervals for a total of about 16 minutes. Hint: if they seem crumbly they need more time. Also I used a full cup of natural crunchy peanut butter and, of course, substituted butter. Thick, delicious, beyond moist- excellent flavor. Do yourself a favor and try this recipe. YUM!
