Peanut Butter Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2015
I made the recipe as written and baked in my large cookie sheet. This was an easy cake to make and very moist without being oily. I have some cake left 3 days later and it is still moist. I ranked this 4 stars because of the icing. As it says the icing is more like a soft fudge - slightly firm, not soft like frosting. I REALLY liked the texture of the icing, but to me the icing was too sweet. I wanted a bit more of the peanut butter saltiness to come through so that it would taste like it was spread with a layer of slightly sweet peanut butter. If I made this again I would try using less sugar in the icing and decreasing the milk so that the icing doesn't get too runny.

Gingerbread Men Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2014
The drawback to this recipe is that my dough was really sticky. I followed the recipe as written and put in the fridge for 6 hours. I used 1/3 of the dough at a time, leaving the remaining dough in the fridge. To make the dough work here's what I did: I was working on a floured surface so I rolled out the dough, then lifted the dough up and put down a thicker layer of flour, then cut the cookies with cookie cutters dipped in flour. I also reduced the baking time to about 6-7 minutes. The baked cookies were soft with good color and flavor. I would use this recipe again but I will keep looking for an easier to use recipe.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
This is a good apple crisp recipe. I gave it 4 stars based on making it as written. I like that this recipe is a bit different than some because you add additional liquid to the apples so that they bake up a bit saucier. The second time making the recipe I made a few changes which makes it more like a 5 star recipe. I used less sugar with the apples - about 2/3 cup. I also used apple juice instead of water because I had it on hand for another recipe. I 1 and 1/2'd the topping so I would have more - but doubling the topping seemed like too much for me. Also when doing that I used 1/2 c. margarine and 1/4 cup canola oil. (I always use a bit of oil in my fruit crisp topping, as I think it makes it crunchier.) The apples I used weren't the most flavorful - someone gave them to me from off of their tree. But, even so the crisp was very yummy. Someone suggested to me, to add some lemon juice, about 2 TBL, to the apples to give them a tarter, more flavorful taste. Next time, if I don't use Granny Smiths, I'll try that!

Tangy Dill Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2014
This was very good! I made it exactly as the recipe described except I used dried dill instead of fresh. (I used bottled lemon juice but the recipe didn't say fresh or bottled) I will definitely make this again but I will add a few more potatoes. At the store I measured out 3 lbs of red skinned new potatoes but there was plenty of dressing so I'll add a few more potatoes next time. I may also add chicken and make a cold meal out of it.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
This recipe was easy and fantastic AS WRITTEN and it gets 5 stars. To lessen the calories, instead of all white sugar I make it with 1/4 cup Splenda and 1/4 cup white sugar. I tried substituting Splenda for all the sugar and I thought it had a funny taste. I also use skim milk. I do add a couple of ingredients to make it more to my taste. I add 1 tsp instant coffee and then when I eat the pudding I pour some coffee liquer in and mix it up. I will not be buying instant chocolate pudding again.

Peanut Butter Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
Very good coffee cake, good peanut butter flavor. I've made the cake a couple of times. I made the following changes: I used 1/4 canola oil instead of CRISCO and I used 1 TBL margarine and 1 TBL canola oil in the topping, instead of all margarine. I baked the cake at 350 degrees instead of 375. This cake, like most coffee cakes, could be easily overbaked and become dry. I watch the cake very closely towards the end of baking to make sure it doesn't overbake. The family liked it best re-heated for a few seconds in the microwave. I plan to cut the cake into pieces and put in the freezer to be eaten as a quick breakfast or snack.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This is the first Banana Bread recipe my family has really liked (and I've tried several) It had a very good banana flavor. I wanted a recipe that would use several bananas at one time!! This was it. I doubled the recipe because in our house making only one loaf would have been a waste of time. I also added cinnamon and nutmeg. Finally a banana bread I can make and the family won't just ask "why didn't you just make pumpkin bread?"

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
Very sweet roll, I've never had a Cinnabon, but these were really good! I made the rolls and put them in round baking pans(found at dollar store.) Each pan held 6 rolls. I then froze the rolls and made up the frosting and froze that as well. When I want to eat them, I thaw rolls on countertop for 7 to 8 hours, until doubled then bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. I also have made a whole pan and put in the frig overnight to raise, then baked at 350 for 20 -25 minutes.
