Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2014
I hosted Christmas dinner this year and I made these for dessert but when I tasted one I packed ALL of the rest of them up and hid them. Then, I went to the market, got a sugar cookie tray and served that instead. I don't know if I ate anything besides these cookie for the next week with a cup of coffee. It was heaven.

Awesome Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2014
At first I was like "Who in the world needs a recipe for pasta salad. It's just noodles, random veggies, some cheese and dressing." But after trying many times and failing to get pasta salad right I decided I wanted to try a recipe for my daughter's birthday and I'm glad I did. As far as pasta salads go, this was awesome. I really enjoyed it as did everyone at my daughter's birthday BBQ. It's so simple yet so good. This will be my new go-to for potluck BBQ's!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2013
The first bite I took immediately gave me diabetes BUT it was soooo worth it! These brownies were so amazingly good but way, way, way too sweet for my family. Next time I won't do the icing and maybe I'll add a few chocolate chips instead. I even left the honey out of the icing because I didn't have any in my pantry and it was still ridiculously rich. The brownie itself came out chewy and fudgy and just perfect. This will be my new go to brownie recipe. It was just as easy as the boxed stuff but so much better. Thank you for sharing!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
I'm not always overly dramatic about food (lie, yes I am) but I died and went to heaven. Perfection! I will use this recipe often for the rest of my life and, when I'm gone from this world, my kids and grandkids will make this recipe and good memories of being young and holiday dinners and Grammy's homemade cornbread (because I'm totally taking credit for this recipe in my family) will come flooding back to them. Thank you so much for sharing!

Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2015
My plantains were A LOT more ripe than the typical green ones I usually see (and know now are what you're supposed to use). I thought you bought the green ones then were supposed to let them ripen before use lol. Anyway, I fried my very ripe plantains in coconut oil, in a cast iron skillet, then sprinkled them with sea salt when they were done. They were seriously great! These came out much better than the tostones I've had at Puerto Rican restaurants and from my cousins mother. I'm not sure if it was the recipe, that I probably used more ripe plantains than the others, or that I used coconut oil instead of canola or vegetable oil, but I will absolutely make these again following this recipe. Next time I'll try green plantains because I'm sure they'll be even better!

Farfalle Pasta with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
I have to admit that I don't usually use recipes from this site that have less than 40 reviews because I'm afraid of wasting food and more often than not when I follow a recipe exactly without using the changes that other reviewers have suggested, I'm usually very disappointed with the results. But, I had all of the ingredients for this recipe so I decided to give it a go because if it wasn't good then I was only really wasting a box of pasta and some artichokes. I'm SO happy I tried this because it is delicious! I will absolutely save this recipe and make it often. Thank you for sharing, James!

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
I make this ham every year for Easter and Christmas at the request of my husband and his entire family. My family doesn't eat ham but if they did they'd LOVE this recipe too! It doesn't get any easier or tastier. I love that I can throw the ham in the crockpot and just let it do it's thing while I take care of all of the other things that a host needs to do for a large group of people and it comes out perfect.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2014
Awesome, awesome recipe! I usually buy store made crust but I recently got a food processor (I know, welcome to the 20th century lol) so I thought I'd try to make a homemade crust for a peanut butter pie I was making for a 4th of July BBQ. I used chocolate graham crackers but followed everything else exactly and it was just perfect! I'm definitely not going back to store bought graham cracker crust again!

Pollo (Chicken) Fricassee from Puerto Rico

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
I don't know if it's fair to give this recipe 5 stars even though I made some slight changes to it but the changes were slight and the end result was sooooooo good! The changes I made were: 1) Instead of using a tsp each of oregano and cumin, I used a tbsp each. 2) I forgot the bay leaves (oops!). 3) I didn't have fresh cilantro so I used 1 1/2 tbsp. dried cilantro. 4) I didn't have green peppers so I just used all red peppers. 5) I didn't have red potatoes so I used white potatoes. 6) I added a few manzanilla olives because of the other suggestions. Next time I'll make sure I have exactly what I need and try the recipe as written because when I winged it it was really good so I'm sure the original is even better!

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: May 18, 2014
I'm a self proclaimed horrible baker. I somehow find a way to ruin everything I bake. It's a gift, I guess. So, when I decided to bake my first cake ever using this recipe, to be served at my daughter's 2nd birthday party, I expected a horrible disaster. What I got was the absolute best cake I've ever eaten and everyone at the party RAVED about the cake. Even my mother in law kept complimenting me on a job well done (you may have felt hell freezing over yesterday afternoon because of this, lol). The taste was amazing and the texture was perfect. This is it- my go to yellow cake recipe. The only change I made was to bake at 325 degrees but after 25 minutes when it still was looking very uncooked, I put the heat up to 350 and let it finish cooking. I put a thin layer of fresh, sliced strawberries between the cake layers with a thin layer of homemade buttercream icing that I found on this site, iced the whole cake, then put whole, fresh strawberries around the top of the cake. My favorite recipe from this site so far!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2014
Perfect! I'm not a coleslaw fan but I made this for my husband and sister who both love their coleslaw and I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Everyone who ate it raved about it. It's the best coleslaw I've ever eaten. It's not too sweet, not to tart, not to mayonnaise-y. It's a keeper!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
My cousins always rave about this chocolate cake my aunt makes so I was really excited to try it when she brought it to thanksgiving dinner tonight. It was the best chocolate cake EVER. As soon as I came him from dinner I sat down and looked up this recipe. Now I know what I'm bringing to every dinner I'm asked to bring something to. Delicious.

Smooth Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
The only change I made was to use all butter instead of shortening. This icing is sweet, but it's icing- it's supposed to be sweet! This recipe made EXACTLY enough to ice an 8 inch double layer cake. It went on smoothly, looked pretty, and tasted great. As a novice baker I really appreciate when things are as easy and turn out as well as this buttercream icing has for me. Thank you!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2015
I'm not sure if it's fair to give this recipe 5 stars because I really went rogue with it to make it healthier, but I generally followed the ingredients. First, I doubled the spices and sprinkled that over my chicken breasts. Next, I put all of the lime juice on top of the raw, seasoned chicken. Then, I ditched the butter, using more olive oil in its place. I put all of the oil on top of the seasoned chicken, covered the bowl, and let it marinate for a little over an hour. Last, I put the chicken and all of the juices from the bowl on a rimmed baking sheet and baked the chicken at 400 degrees until it was cooked (about 30 minutes.) The changes I made were really accidental (I should probably learn to READ directions) but the result was beyond delicious and absolutely a keeper!!! I can't wait to try the recipe as written!
