Sticky Monkey Brains

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2014
This recipe is the BOMB! I made it exactly as written, except that the "small" bundt pans I own are only about 4-1/2" deep and are all contained on one pan (6 small bundt molds on one sheet--like a cookie sheet). I'm wondering if Sugisugi had larger, individual bundt pans than I do, because she was able to use all (3) 7.5 oz. packages of biscuits that the recipe calls for, and there's no way that 3 packages would fit using my small bundt pans. I ended up just using 2 packages of biscuits, along with the full amount of ingredients for the rest of the recipe. I then inverted the individual bundt servings onto the cookie sheet when they were done baking. These were even better than our local breakfast/pastry shop's Sticky Buns (which is saying something!). I assembled all the ingredients that I was able to the night before, set the oven to be pre-heated by the time I got up in the morning, and then in less than 10 minutes they were ready for the oven. Twenty minutes later, they were done. Perfection! Thanks for the great recipe, Sugisugi! They will definitely be a staple in our house.

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
Wow-I was really impressed with this recipe; the taste was fabulous (one of the best cobblers I've tasted). I had 10 cups of fresh blackberries that I needed to use, though, and wanted to make a larger pan due to the size of my family. So this is what I used for the BERRY mixture: 10 cups of fresh blackberries, 5 tablespoons cornstarch, 1/2 cup cold water, 1 3/4 cups sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. For the DOUGH, I used 2 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1 cup of sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla, 2 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of salt, 12 tablespoons of cold butter, and 1/2 cup of boiling water. Followed the rest of the recipe exactly as described using these ingredients. Baked at 350 in a greased 9X13 casserole dish for about an hour, until the dough was browned. Everyone in my family loved it--especially the crust. I could see how this recipe could be adapted for other types of fruit very easily.

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I made these for a party and received rave reviews. I used the graham cracker crust that another reviewer posted on here and made mini cheesecakes. They were baked for 13 minutes at 350, but found when I filled some of batter with mini chocolate chips, they needed to baked about 2 minutes more. Topped some with cherry pie filling, some with a fresh raspberry and white chocolate drizzed over, and the rest with mini chocolate chips in the batter, drizzed with caramel sauce and pecan pieces. Very good and very easy!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
I made this exactly as the recipe was written, except that I used a full 8 oz. of tomato sauce (I didn't want to waste the other half of the can). Like other reviewers, I didn't need a full 2 cups of bread crumbs for the chicken. It was very good, very flavorful and the rest of the family liked it as well. Thanks for the great recipe!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
This was an excellent dish. I added a full 8 oz. of mozarella (instead of 6 oz. that was called for), and sliced fresh mushrooms while the ground beef was cooking. The spaghetti sauces I used were Prego's Roasted Garlic Parmesan and Ricotta Parmesan, and I think those two flavors melded very well together. I split the recipe into two smaller pans and froze one. My family loved it, and so did I. Thanks for the recipe Colleen!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
The best pumpkin bread I've ever had by far. The only changes I made were to add a teaspoon of vanilla, and to use two 9X5 loaf pans. Baked them at 65 minutes and used the toothpick test. The first loaf was gone in less than a day! Froze the other loaf for future use. Thanks for the great recipe Laurie!

Caramel Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
This pie was excellent. Made it for Thanksgiving Day and it received many compliments. Made exactly as indicated, except I added 2 cups of coarsley chopped pecans. Thanks Caroline!

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
I followed the recipe exactly, because it was in the Allrecipes cookbook I purchased. It was just OK, but I sure wish I had read the reviews before I made it. The crust was way too overdone and crispy (and I even took it out about 7-8 minutes before it was supposed to be done). The filling was too thin too. Definitely needs some changes--I will look elsewhere for another recipe.

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2005
Wonderful! My husband and I loved this bread, it has an excellent flavor. I used the milk/vinegar mixture, mixed everything at once as directed, and also added about 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. The only problem I had was with the topping--it was too moist to crumble easily, and it created moist pockets of batter right under the top crust that added about 15 minutes of cooking time. I think the topping was my fault though; I believe I used more than 2 teaspoons of butter. Next time I make it I will be more careful about measuring the butter portion. Thanks for a great and easy recipe!

Fresh Tomato Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2005
This was just OK--my family thought it was a little on the bland side, but was edible. Won't make again.

Stuffed Chicken Valentino

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
Well, I hate to say this when everyone else thought so highly of this recipe--we thought it was OK, but nothing spectacular. It was easy enough to make, but I don't know if we will finish off the leftovers. Maybe it was because I don't have a good recipe for alfredo sauce to top it with--we just ate the chicken rolls over rice. I thought it was kind of bland and won't be making again. Followed the recipe exactly.

Mendocino Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
This was OK--nothing really fantastic. Didn't go over that well in our house, but we ate it anyway. Still looking for that perfect chicken salad.

Sangria Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2005
This was excellent! I couldn't find a ham that wasn't pre-cooked, so I used a spiral sliced ham and adjusted the baking time and temperature per the instructions that came with the ham. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. Received many raves and will definitely make again!

Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
These were excellent! I made the recipe exactly as indicated, except I DOUBLED the cookie dough/muffin part (I used the exact amount of chocolate filling ingredients per the recipe, though). That gave me exactly the amount of chocolate filling I needed, since I read other people's reviews that they had too much chocolate left over. I made the exact amount of chocolate in the recipe, but doubled the amount of cookie dough, and the amount of chocolate filling came out perfect for the doubled batch of muffins. The trick I learned to getting the muffins to come out without any trouble was this--as soon as they are out of the oven, go ahead and use the melon baller to make the indentation in the muffin (as recipe indicates). Then, let the muffins rest in the pan about 10 minutes before you remove them from the pan--mine came out perfectly. I just used a sharp knife and it took no effort to remove them. I also greased the mini-muffin pans before using, so that may have helped, and baked them exactly for 14 minutes. I highly recommend these--they are visually very appealing also. It looks like you spent a lot of time making them, when they were really pretty easy. Thanks for the great recipe Deborah! They will become a staple of our household, and not just for Christmas.

Pumpkin Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2002
This was an excellent pumpkin bread. I substituted one cup of applesauce for the vegetable oil, put the batter equally in a large loaf pan and 4 small ones, and baked them at 350 about 40-45 minutes. They were very moist and had a great flavor. Highly recommended.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2002
This was great! Very tasty salad. I just left off the poppy seeds, added toasted pecans, chopped sweet onion, and balsamic vinegar in place of the white vinegar.

Mexican Lasagna II

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2002
This was ok--nothing spectacular. I think there is a too-many-refried-beans ratio to the hamburger, and it makes it bland, no matter how many additional spices you add. I added a small can of chopped green chiles, oregano, chili powder, 1 cup of Pace picante sauce, and it was still a little mealy. If I try this again, I will add only one can of refried beans and try a can of Mexican-style tomatoes.

Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2002
If you like the rhubarb-strawberry combination, this is a keeper. This is a very easy, very delicious recipe. I used 3 cups of strawberries and 3 cups of rhubarb and followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Had to make it twice in the first week--it was so good.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2002
I thought this was the best meatloaf I've ever tasted. Just make sure you use lean ground beef, otherwise 3/4 cup of milk the recipe calls for it makes it too moist. I also had to cook it a little longer. This is a keeper!
