Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
Perfect. I used the ring of a wide-mouth Mason jar to cut out the rolls, they were the perfect size for burgers.

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2004
Absolutely delicious! Pre-made, store-bought cocoa tastes so bland after drinking this stuff! I advise using the Wal-Mart store brand chocolate drink mix (generic of Quik) because Quik doesn't give it much flavor... and using chocolate-flavored powdered creamer gives it an extra cocoa boost.

Pasta Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
Delicious! This is a new family favorite!! I do not have a 2.5 qt (approx 11x7) baking dish, so I increased the amount of penne to 1 lb, and ground beef to 1 lb to make it fit into a 13x9 pan.

Baptist Grasshopper Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
This was okay, I wasn't particularly impressed. BUT... mint extract is 89% alcohol, while creme de menthe is 15% alcohol, so I can't understand why they say this recope does not contain alcohol. ALL extracts (including vanilla) contain alcohol!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
This bread was absolutely fantastic. I mixed the dough in my Kitchenaid stand mixer and let it knead in there for 3-4 minutes instead of kneading it by hand. Also, for the rising, I followed Alton Brown's suggestion of pouring boiling water into a shallow baking dish placed in the bottom of a cold oven, and placing the dough in the makeshift "proofing box". The bread came out with a wonderfully smooth and light texture, not at all dense and crumbly like typical homemade bread.

Cheesy Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
Fantastic! I've made it twice... one time with sugar, and one time without. I'd recommend leaving the sugar out... the added sweetness just doesn't taste that good in this type of potato salad.

Pasticiotti

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2006
This was rather bland and tasteless. The pastry (more like sugar cookie dough than anything else) was a bit on the dry side after baking. The pudding was the only good-tasting part of the recipe.

Vegetable Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This pasta salad is very tasty, and very easy to make. I took a shortcut by cooking the chicken in the microwave.

Pumpkin Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
It had a good flavor, but after only a couple hours it started to taste really dry. It wasn't good enough that I'd want to make it again.

Chocolate Mint Dessert Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
The toppings were good, but the brownie itself was bland and not at all impressive. I'll use the topping again sometime, but with a fudge-type brownie. And for those of you who want to use mint extract instead of creme de menthe because you "don't drink alcohol"- be advised that mint extract is 89% alcohol. Creme de menthe is 15% alcohol.

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
This recipe is wonderful. Moist, flavorful bread with exactly the right touch of spices. I'll definitely be making this again and again.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Wonderful soup! When I am feeling lazy, I use a country gravy mix, prepared (2 cups) instead of making the white sauce.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
Very good. I've made it several times and my family loves it- but I usually cook it on low for 4-4.5 hours, as other reviewers have suggested. Today I also added some (thawed) frozen spinach in with the cheese mixture, and it was delicious!

Ham and Cheese Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
Pretty good! I like to use the chunky garden vegetable pasta sauce, and garden (tri-color) rotini pasta.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: May 20, 2005
Very good, but if you're not a really big fan of pepper, I'd recommend using half the amount.

Brownie Mallow Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
These were not very good to me. The marshmallow layer was too 'tough' (after being in the fridge for 2 hours to firm up the chocolate/PB layer) and the chocolate/peanut butter/Rice Krispy layer had a strange texture that was very unappetizing... and very messy to eat. I will not try to make this again.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
Oh wow, these are SO GOOD! I started looking for a drop biscuit recipe after I discovered my box of Bisquick was full of bugs... eew. These are so easy to make, I'll be sticking with this recipe from now on! Like everyone else has said, they are light and fluffy and tasty!

Cookies 'n Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
If this cake attracts any attention, it must be solely because of the novelty of a cookies 'n cream cake. Taste-wise, it was not very good. I doubled the amount of cookie the recipe calls for, and I couldn't taste any at all. It was sweet, and that's about it.

Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
Absolutely delicious. This will be my go-to pumpkin pie recipe from now on. I didn't have any walnuts so I used chopped pecans, and it was excellent.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
Pretty good... though they remind me of Little Debbie snack cakes. I used almost an entire 24-oz pkg of almond bark to dip all the cake balls in.
