Elaine's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
I tried this easy recipe hoping for a winner, but the cookies are dry and have a terrible artificial aftertaste from the mix. I knew something was wrong when I noticed their odd appearance when baking. They are easy, but are not anything I would ever make again.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
I have made this twice and it has turned out great both times. The second time, I had run out of vanilla and used maple syrup instead. I have also tried it white and wheat bread and it was great both ways.

Chocolate Applesauce Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
This was moist, light and flavorful. I even used reduced-fat margarine for the butter and it turned out suprisingly well. I would not consider it for "chocoholics" though and may increase the cocoa to 1/4 cup in the future as suggested by other reviewers. I would definitely use this recipe again.

President Ford's Braised Eye Round Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
The flavor was great and my whole family really enjoyed it. I served it with vegetable couscous and the pairing was great. Unfortunately, the beef was not particularly tender when finished. I'm not sure if this was just the cut of meat or if there was something additional I could have done. I followed the written recipe to a "T."

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
Excellent! I cut the recipe in half and used raisins instead of walnuts. I also frosted them while still slightly warm with canned cream cheese frosting and no one could tell the difference. Moist, delicious and so easy to make! I would absolutely make these again.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
This recipe is fabulous and very easy (if you use a corer/peeler to prepare the apples). I have shared it with friends and it has become a fall tradition.

Easy Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Very easy to make! We purchased a bbq Turkey from a local restaurant and so we did not have any drippings, but wanted gravy. Instead, I used store bought stock. After reading the comments, I decided not to add salt and the gravy was plenty salty for our taste. I also wisked the flour into cold milk and added. It thickened instantly and no lumps! The gravy has a great flavor, makes large quantities and works very well if you need gravy, but didn't cook the turkey.

Chocolate Pecan Pie IV

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Excellent flavor! This turned out very well. I was a little concerned when I cut into the pie and the chocolate had seperated from the pie filling a bit, but the flavor was amazing and I would definitely make again.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Wonderful! After reading the reviews, I cooked the cranberries a little longer to give the sauce some extra thickness. It worked very well and was super easy. Great to make ahead!

Southern Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
A very good recipe! I made this as a side for Thanksgiving. It smelled wonderful when cooking and went very well with the meal. I needed to cook the green beans much longer than 10 minutes to make them tender, but as the potatoes cooked, some began to break down and thicken the sauce, which was a nice touch. I would prepare again.

Whipped Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I made this for Thanksgiving. Of the mounds of food I prepared, this was the lone dish with NO leftovers. It was completely gone! I thought it was quite good and added a little vanilla, as was suggested by some of the reviews. To cook the potatoes, I baked them for about an hour and then scooped out the skins and this worked well. My one complaint is that the orange juice came across a little strong for my taste. I used fresh squeezed and it was a bit too obvious a flavor in the mix.

Apple-Raisin French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
This was excellent. I made it Christmas eve night to bake for Christmas morning. It was an easy breakfast and I substituted dried cranberries for raisins to make it more seasonal. It tastes much like bread pudding and does not need any added syrup. When I served it, I spooned servings so that the apples and cranberries topped the "toast" layer. It looked lovely on the plates.

Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Chewy

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
Very good! My husband loved them. I used dark chocolate chips and the flavor was a little overpowering, so I may scale back to semi-sweet or use less next time. I would definitely make the recipe again though. Be prepared for a huge batch. This made about 7 1/2 dozen for me.

Chocolate Mint Dessert Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Made this for a party and got RAVE reviews. I used a box for the brownie part and it was great!

Peanut Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
This was good, but the nuts did not rise to the top as in the picture and so they became soft if the pie filling. It had a nice flavor. I would try again, but sprinkle the nuts on top instead of folding them in the filling.

Spiced Mixed Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Great taste and VERY easy! I read the comments by other reviewers and added an extra 1/2 of nuts. I also substituted cayenne pepper for the nutmeg to give it a kick. I will definitely make this again.

Blue Cheese Herb Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Excellent spread! I looked at the reviews and added 1/4 cup dried cranberries for a nice tart, salty, and sweet blend. The parsely gives it a fresh taste. I can't wait to serve this tomorrow.

Rum Balls II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
These were good, but I agree with the other reviews that I probably needed 2 bottles of chocolate jimmies and the mix was a little dry, so I added a tablespoon more rum for additional flavor and moisture. Good and not difficult though!

Minnesota Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
This was what I was looking for: an easy casserole recipe for a winter night. I followed the recipe for the most part, but dusted the pork chops with flour before pan frying to give them a light breading. I also used cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom soup because of picky eaters. I served it with green beans for a complete meal. I did find the rice was a little browner at the edges of the casserole and I had only cooked it for a little over an hour. Next time I may add a little extra water to keep this from happening so soon. Because I needed to remove the casserole from the oven early, the pork was not as tender as it could have been.

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I followed these directions exactly, but the outside of the rolls was hard rather than soft. I will try a different recipe next time.
