Divine Hard-Boiled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I've been boiling eggs this way all of my life. It always works for me. Just to reiterate what a couple of other people said, if you use older eggs, they will peel easier. Fresher eggs are always harder to peel. So, don't blame the recipe if your eggs don't peel well. Next time just use them closer to the expiration date and they'll peel easier. One tip that I've heard that might help, though, is adding a teaspoon of salt to the cooking water right after taking them off the heat. The salt doesn't actually make the egg inside salty, it just loosens the shell to make peeling easier. Give it a try and see if it works for you!

4H Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
I had some over-ripe bananas and thought I'd make a few mini loaves to give away to neighbors (since I, myself, don't care much for banana bread). Well, the loaves turned out so beautiful and smelled so great that I couldn't resist trying a piece. I ended up surprising myself my eating the whole mini loaf! I still had 2 to give away and both neighbors asked for the recipe! Yum, yum!

Apple Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Absolutely wonderful! I followed the recipe ingredients list exactly and couldn’t be happier with the results. My muffins were soft, tender, fragrant, and had high, beautiful crowns! Here are some tips to help you achieve great results: First, I used fresh, green Granny Smith apples. I always bake with tart apples so that the final product doesn’t come out too sweet. They complemented the pumpkin wonderfully. I filled my muffin cups nearly all the way to the top and used muffin liners for easy extraction from the pan. Rather than making 18 muffins I made 12, plus 2 mini loaves to give away to friends. I took the muffins out of the oven at 25 minutes but left the mini loaves in the full 35. I lightly greased the mini loaf pans and the bread came out with no sticking. One more thing, make sure that your spices are fresh. Some reviewers stated that their muffins didn’t have enough spice flavor, but perhaps the spices were just old. They lose their potency over time. Happy cooking!

Blueberry Muffins II

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
Delicious! I already had two neighbors who I shared with ask for the recipe! Just a comment or two about the recipe itself: When I was preparing these the batter was quite thick, but that turned out not to be a problem as the finished product was perfect. Also, I filled 12 muffin cups almost to the top and had enough batter to make 2 mini loaves as well. To prevent sticking, I used paper liners, which worked perfectly. For my mini loaves I just used PAM spray on the pans and they came right out of the pans after cooling. No trouble with sticking whatsoever. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!! I followed it exactly and would not change a thing.

Pumpkin French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
Like others said, this recipe is decent but better when the pumpkin and spices are increased. A good starting point for pumpkin french toast.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Definitely light and fluffy, but I didn't care for the flavor. There was definitely a vinegar taste to them. If I ever make these again I will cut back on the vinegar. You don't need that much to make the milk sour.

Holiday Ribbon Gelatin

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
I brought this to a family Christmas party a few years ago and I've been asked to bring it again 2 or 3 times since then, so I guess everyone must have liked it! I enjoyed it and thought the 3 layers went well together.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Impressive if you've never made homemade cinnamon rolls before, but nothing out of the ordinary compared to other cinnamon roll recipes I've tried. Just your basic homemade cinnamon roll. I think the thing that sells this recipe is that it is so easy to toss the ingredients into the bread machine and let it do most of the work, but you can do that with any recipe, so... Anyway, I just wasn't all that impressed. Good, but not the best ever.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I turned the oven down about 10 degrees and cooked it a bit longer and that seemed to help keep the outside from burning. The recipe says to "lightly grease" the pans, but next time I'll grease them better because I had one loaf stick and I couldn't get it out in one piece. I would also stir the spices into the dry ingredients first because they seemed to clump up when added directly to the wet ingredients. Overall a great recipe.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Easy and good. I used beef consomme instead of the vermouth. I added chopped carrots and potatoes during the last hour of cooking and they cooked up nicely.

Left-Over Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
I thought this was a very easy recipe and it yielded great results. I wanted potato in mine so I diced up one potato and boiled it until it was just barely tender, then added it in with my other veggies (I used frozen peas and carrots). A very tasty pot pie. I think you'll be pleased with the results if you try it.

Applesauce Oat Muffins

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
My muffins just came out of the oven. I followed the recipe exactly, and they came out very moist and had good texture, but they had no flavor! They are VERY bland and VERY plain. If you don't want your muffins to taste like cardboard, then I recommend adding more spices like other reviewers said. Also, I tried using paper liners in the muffin tin, and the muffins stuck to the paper and the paper was hard to get off.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
As another reviewer put it, this banana bread was "rediculously sweet." It was so sugary I couldn't eat it. I wish I had followed other reviewers' advice to cut back on the sugar. I'll stick with Banana Bread V. It is the best out there.

Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
This recipe was okay. It was a bit weird to me to have lumpy oats in my pancakes. It would be better if the oats were ground up, perhaps. I also thought the batter was a bit thin. I prefer thick, fluffy pancakes rather than thin ones. I definitely think that the recipe Oatmeal Pancakes II is WAY better if you want oats in your pancakes. Oh, but one good thing I'll say about this recipes is that it is VERY easy to make.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
These cookies were pretty good, but I didn't feel that they were the best out there. I think that there were WAY to many chocolate chips for the amount of dough. Next time I will only put in 3/4 or 1/2 the amount. Also, although the cookies were indeed big and fat, I don't agree that they were chewy. Thick cookies are not necessarily chewy cookies. I would also like to agree with those who said NOT to refrigerate the dough. I tried some unrefrigerated and some refrigerated and the ones that were not refrigerated were much easier to scoop and came out soft and fluffy. Be careful not to overcook the cookies. They will be much softer and better if you take them out of the oven when they are not quite done in the middle. They will cook the rest of the way on the pan as they cool. Overall a pretty good cookie. I will try it again sometime with less chocolate.

Old-Fashioned Lemonade

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
I thought it came out a bit too sweet. Try it with 3/4 cup of sugar first, and add more a little at a time if desired.

Mammaw's Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
If you like light, airy waffles then I think this would be a great waffle recipe for you. I prefer my waffles a bit heavier or denser than this, so I'm only giving it 4 stars. I'll keep looking for a recipe that suits my tastes.
