Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2003
These were pretty good. I made them today with my 6 yr old and let him put whatever he wanted in his half. He did milk chocolate chips with cinnamon in them and said they were really good. I did mine with frozen cranberries, pecans and a touch of almond extract. I think my favorite part was being able to let my son have his own free reign on what he wanted to do. Thanks for the great recipe and very cherished family time that I will always remember. Amanda

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2003
So Yummmyyy!!! I made this last night and had to stop myself from eating the whole thing! My husband who "claims" to hate cranberries was standing in the kitchen eating it out of the pie plate!! it's more cake than pie like though..but still sooo good! Thanks for a great recipe!

Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2002
My husband really wanted to make this for our Christmas dinner, but I couldn't find my grandmother's recipe that she had given me. Luckily I remembered most of the ingredients and found this recipe, which is exactly like hers. He doubled it and used two cans of cream of mushroom soup, which made it a little soupier than Grandma's, but it was still really good!! Just like I remember! He also didn't use butter and substituted regular mayo for ff (calories calories!) Thanks for a great recipe! I'm keeping ahold of this one for future special dinners.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2002
Ok, apparantly I was not meant to master the art of kettle corn! My husband and myself tried this recipe THREE times and each time it came out horrible. The first time he went off the reviews and used 3/4 cup sugar and we ended up with a big gooey brown mess all over the popcorn! Yuck..the second time I used the amount of sugar the recipe called for and less oil (4tbls seemed like WAY too much) and it still came out horrible...I figured third time was a charm right?? I guess not because we used the called for amount of everything, I even took some of the previous reviewers advice and waited for some of the kernels to pop before adding the sugar (which is tough because you don't want to get hit in the face with a scorching hot popcorn kernel!) and it still came out horrible. I LOVE kettle corn, but could not master this recipe! Please someone enlighten me! so maybe I will be inclined to try this again! Otherwise I'll have to keep it at 1 star and I hate giving up to easily! Thanks!

Raspberry Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2002
I made these this year for my cookie platters and they came out great! I didn't have any almond extract (oops..left it off the shopping list!) so I just used vanilla. I'm guessing they will be even better with the almond extract. My husband likes these so much that he said we wouldn't be giving any out because he was going to eat them all!! Definately a keeper! Thanks for the recipe!

Date Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2002
I made this at the request of my father for Christmas and they came out great!! I pretty much followed the directions except I used butter instead of shortening and I omitted a half cup of flour because I was concerned about the past reviews of the bars being too crumbly..but they came out great!!I also used a 9x13 pan, which was perfect..there would have been WAY too much for a 9x9 pan. My dad hasn't tasted them yet, but I hope he enjoys them! Thanks for the recipe!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
This fudge is excellent. VERY easy to make and delicious. Though it's pretty much the recipe off the back of the marshmellow fluff jar..with a few modifications. Also, I don't add the marshmellow fluff until the very end..and mine always turns out creamy and smooth. Thanks for sharing!

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2002
First of all. If you have trouble with this fudge it's your own fault. Not the recipe writers. Secondly..it's getting awfully old seeing people complain when THEY are the ones who make mistakes in the recipes. This web site was created so that people had the option to try and rate new recipes. You didn't succeed in making this..get over it. I followed the directions (without a candy thermometer) and this came out great!! It's not rocket science. Cook till it boils. Add ingredients..cook till it boils again.. Bring to rolling boil..then cook for 18 min (set your timers) and stir occasionally. Some people just weren't meant to master fudge. I will DEFINATELY make this recipe again! What a nice change from ordinary fudge! Thanks!!

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2002
ok, I had to re-do my evaluation of these after making them myself. They were sooooo good!! I didn't use as much powdered sugar as the recipe called for and I also altered the chocolate coating and used half milk and half semi-sweet chocolate chips and added about 2 tbls of butter and some heavy cream...at first my coating totally started to seize and I thought I'd wasted at on of ingredients, but I just added some regular milk and it smoothed out..I think I put too much fat in!! hee hee. Anyways...these were a hit on my Christmas tray. My cousin told me they tasted like a creamier version of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (R). So you know these were good...thanks for the great recipe..I am definately making these next year!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2002
Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy!!! This bread is soo good and makes ALOT of dough. I filled 5 mini loaf pans for x-mas gifts. Then I had enough left over to make 4 small muffins so we could all try it! It was soo moist and really good. It's sweet, but not overly sweet. My husband said we may have to rethink who we are giving gifts to because he's eating one of these loaves himself!! Thanks for a wondeful recipe. Oh..I did change it a little by substituting applesauce (unsweetened because of the amt of sugar) for the oil. Was fantastic!!

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2002
Outstanding! I too had to tweak the amount of corn syrup and milk to get it to the right consistency..but it was great!! We "painted" it onto sugar cookie lollipops (Deliah's Cut-Out Sugar cookies from this site) and then my 6yr old decorated them with sprinkles!! The frosting dried nice and hard and it went great with the not so sweet taste of the cookies. He is so proud to give these as gifts in cookie bouquets to his teacher!! Thanks!

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2002
My 6yr old and I made these last night for cookie bouquets for him to give to his teacher, grandmother and great grandmother. I was a little worried at first because the cookies were kind of hard when I took them out of the oven, but then I tasted them. Nothing outstanding, but definately good and worked great for what we were making them for. Had they been too soft they would not have stayed on the popsicle sticks. Definately a recipe worth keeping! thanks for sharing!

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2002
I made this yesterday to go with the Mexican Theme of my son and husband's birthday party dinner. I modified it for a large group and used 6 cups chicken broth, 1 1/2 cups picante sauce and 4 cups rice. I did have to add about 2 cups more water since the rice was still a little chewy after cooking down. I then just added garlic and onion powder to it, spread it in a 9x13 baking pan and sprinkled mexican blend cheese over the top and put in the oven for about 15 min till the cheese was melted. this was sooo good and sooo easy to make! Thanks for the great recipe!

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2002
MOIST!!! Is definately one word for this cake! I made this yesterday for my husband and son's birthday. My husband said it was almost custard-like it was so moist, but still delicious. I did make some modifications though. 1 1/2 cups oil seemed like WAY too much (maybe a typo?) so I used 1 cup unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil. I also cut out 1/2 cup of sugar so that it wasn't overly sweet. I also used one heaping teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp of nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger to up the spices a bit to give it more flavor. Next time I think I'll cut the applesauce down to 1/2 a cup since I think a whole cup was too much. I also didn't make the frosting in the recipe, but just took 2 8oz pkgs cream cheese with about 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 tbs orange juice concentrate and 1 tsp almond extract. It was great! This is a good recipe to start out with and then make your own modifications as you go. Thanks! I will be making this again!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2002
I dont understand why no one has tried these yet!! It may seem time consuming because the recipe says it takes two hours..but that's just waiting for them to harden (which if you put them in the freezer doesn't take as long as you think). These are better than the regular Reese's(R) peanut butter cups!! So yummy and so much cheaper to make yourself!! Even my husband, who is candy and cookie making challenged made these! Definately worth the wait!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2002
Yummmyyy...these brownies are so good. I too didn't do the frosting, but it sure wasn't missed. I used these as the base for my York Peppermint Patty (R) brownies and I cut off the edges because I was giving them to someone as a gift and my husband ate all of the edges!! Took the whole plate!! I think my favorite part about this recipe is that I can make them the whole recipes in the saucepan that I melted the butter in! So easy and soo yummy! Thanks for a great recipe!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2002
The thing I liked best about this recipe is how easy it is!! Though I did adapt it a little for my own taste (and weight loss issues :0) and used reduced salt taco seasoning, fat free sour cream, and no cheese and it was still wonderful! We had it with refried beans and baked tortilla chips. Was sooo yummy! Definately a keeper

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2002
I use this recipe for all of my chocolate cakes. It is soo good and easy to make and the frosting is delicious too. My husband is a big chocolate cake eater...and he always raves when I make this. I don't know what people are talking about with the frosting being too thin also. If it looks to thin, then add more powdered sugar..it's not rocket science. Definately a keeper for me! :0)

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2002
FANTASTIC!!! Just one way to describe this pie crust. I used butter instead of shortening and had to make double batches for my holiday pies. Such an easy crust and comes out so tender and flaky. I definately recommend anyone looking to make their own crusts to try this pie crust. thank for sharing!

Microwave Pralines

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2002
Ok, I had to revise my rating after I made these myself. I made a few revisions because our microwave is OLD, but I cooked for 11 minutes instead of 9. Followed the directions from there, but to cool them down faster I put the bowl in a cold water bath while stirring. These came out perfectly. so good my boss called me to tell me how good they were! Thanks for a great recipe!
