Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
This is a fantastic muffin recipe! They were just perfect. I read the other reviews and chose not to add any extra sugar and it really was perfect. I generally love sweet things, but these really were great not-too-sweet. The tops of the muffin have a nice slightly crisp texture, and adding a streusel topping (another reviewer suggestion) would take away from that. They domed up beautifully. The flavor was great with just the vanilla. No need to add any cinnamon or nutmeg. I did add walnuts and raspberries. This is my new favorite muffin recipe!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2014
Seriously, this is the BEST chocolate cake I've ever made! I multiplied the recipe by 1.5 because I was making a cake for Easter but also wanted to make just a few cupcakes. It made 2 round layers and 12 cupcakes. I baked the cupcakes for 22 minutes but the could have cooked just a couple more minutes. Next time I'll set the timer for 25 minutes. I didn't have buttermilk, so I put about a tablespoon (maybe a little more) of white vinegar in my Pyrex glass measuring cup then filled it to the 1.5 cup mark with milk. I let the vinegar/milk mixture sit while I mixed the dry ingredients. Worked like a charm! This will be my new go-to chocolate cake recipe!

Sweet Corn Tomalito

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
This was delicious and exactly like Chevys! I followed one reviewer who baked it. I put the mixture in a ceramic dish, covered it tightly with aluminum foil and baked it with a separate container of boiling water for 90 minutes at 250 degrees.

Oatmeal Date Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
I thought this was delicious! I don't love dates, but this was good. I think I might try it next time with a different filling because the crust was just so good. I added coconut and walnuts and followed the advice of another reviewer and used 2 cups of oats and the whole egg (it was just easier that way). Anyway, this is great! Oh...I also agree that you don't really need the sugar in the filling. It was super sweet.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

I followed the recipe and I thought they were just ok. Everyone else in my familiy agreed. I definitely prefer store bought mixes.

Greek Potato Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
I LOVE this recipe. I found it on this site a few years ago and it is a favorite at my house. My husband and son don't like kalamata olives, so they just eat around them. BUT, the flavor of the olives is what makes this dish stand out, so don't leave out the olives if you have someone who doesn't like them. I'm guessing they will still love the flavor of this dish!
