The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2004
I always make the recipe on the back of the peanut butter jar and love them, but thought I would try something new. My husband liked these better than the recipe on the jar. I thought they were good. They have a very peanut buttery taste. I like that they were very moist and chewy. I cooked them on parchment paper for 10 minutes and let them sit on the pan for 2 minutes outside of the oven to continue cooking. I took them to a party and everyone loved them. I am going to keep experimenting with different recipes to see if I can find a cookie that I absolutely love.

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2004
Absolutely delicious! This was a big hit with everyone in my family, kids included. This cake was easy to make and very moist. It's going in my recipe collection. I made my own cream cheese frosting: 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened, 1/2 cup butter softened, 1 tsp. vanilla, 3 cups powdered sugar, 1 tblsp. milk. One of my kids wants me to make it for his birthday party cake. Thanks for sharing! update: I took the cake to his party and everyone LOVED it. A few asked for second pieces and wanted the recipe. Tip: I put the bananas for the cake in a brown paper bag on the counter to ripen faster since I bought them too late to ripen on their own.

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2004
Very easy to make. I baked my chicken 350 for 1 hour 15 minutes, covered. I sauted 3 tblsp. butter with portabella mushrooms, 1/2 large onion, and 1/2 tsp. garlic. The chicken tasted great with Brianna's Honey Mustard sauce and mushroom mixture. Served with a baked potato which I put in the same time as the chicken, corn and cranberry jelly. *Update* We had left overs the next day and the chicken had a lot more flavor. I will try this recipe again and marinate it overnight.

Potato and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
Delicious! The eggs and sour cream go great with the potatoes. Approved by my very picky dh. He said it exceeded his expectations! I added a little pepper. Next time I will try sauted onion in butter. Thanks for a great dish Connie!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 20, 2003
I added an extra tsp. of vanilla and a tsp. of salt to the full recipe like suggested by other reviewers. These cookies tasted great right out of the oven and I thought I had a winner. But, after they cooled I didn't like the taste of the cookie. The after taste isn't very appetizing. Their only redeeming quality is that they are soft and chewy. I'll keep looking for the ultimate chocolate chip cookie. I didn't find it here.

Orange Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
This recipe was alright. I wanted to try this because it sounded interesting and different! I served these potatoes for Easter dinner. No one really raved about them. The comments were "What flavor is this?" because they couldn't figure it out and "They're good" but nothing spectacular. I thought they lacked a lot of flavor. I like my sweet potatoes really sweet! This just didn't cut it. I won't be making these again.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
These are just too cute. They were the hit of the party. Everyone loved them. I made an igloo out of a cheeseball topped with cream cheese. I scored the cream cheese with a knife to make the illusion of ice blocks. I formed a little cream cheese as the opening of the igloo. Much easier to make if you have a helper!! Thanks for such a unique recipe.

Yellow Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
Delicious. Has a great sweet taste. It's great by itself or with fruit (strawberries, blueberries) - doesn't need icing. I was intimidated at first by heating the sugar and water - but it wasn't a big deal and was a really easy cake to make. I would definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe!

Cream Cheese Cookies IV

Very cream cheese tasting. I was looking for a different and easy cookie that tasted great. I loved the taste of these cookies - unlike any cookie I've had before. Thanks for a great and easy recipe!

Maryland Crab Cakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2002
We made these a few times and followed the recipe exactly. They turned out great. I chose this recipe because it called for bread instead of bread crumbs. I wanted to modify the recipe to cut down on the number of crab cakes and added some celery and onion. We liked the crunch of the celery. Here's my changes. Drain well: 1 can lump crabmeat (Lump crabmeat is the best in the can because it has the biggest pieces) – put in a strainer – press down and let sit for ½ hour to drain. Mix: 1 egg, beaten, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, 3/4 teaspoon Dijon-style prepared mustard, Couple dashes Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning, 1 T finely minced onoin, small stick celery finely minced, 2 slices white bread, cut into small pieces. Add crabmeat – gently mix. Lightly bread the patties with cracker meal. Fry them in olive oil until brown. We liked them fried in olive oil for that fried taste. We fried our first batch in butter and they just didn't taste as good to us - they didn't come out nice and crunchy like we like them.

Red Bean Salad with Feta and Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2002
This recipe took a little longer than the 20 minutes stated. It took me 40 minutes to make. I love the mix of fresh ingredients together and that is is a very healthy and easy side dish. I doubled this recipe to take to a party and made 4 times the amount of lemon juice and olive oil dressing. Very delicious! This is going to be my new summer picnic recipe when I am asked to bring a side dish.
