Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Very good soup. I used beef broth instead of chicken (it's what I had here), added an 8 ounce block of mild cheddar cheese in addition to the Velveeta, and I also threw in two diced potatoes. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I would change next time is to cut back just a tad on the garlic powder and the cornstarch. It was a bit too thick for my taste. But overall, we enjoyed it very much. Definitely a keeper.

Thai Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
I was looking for a recipe to use some of the cucumbers and jalapenos in my garden. I am really glad I tried this one. I can't stop eating it! I think I will double it and make it for my baby shower this weekend.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
I have tried several pancake recipes on this site, but this one is by far the best! Yummier than pancakes you get at most restaurants. The recipe is perfect just the way it is, so no need to change a thing!

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
These are great. I added them to my recipe box as soon as I ate one. I used a soup can to cut them and used them in chicken over biscuits. Soooo good!

Grandma's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Really delicious. I added a clove of garlic and ommited the cloves, simply because I didn't have any. Next time I will add the cloves and maybe some red pepper flakes for some heat. Thanks for the recipe!

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. I think it's important to allow the strawberry/rhubarb/sugar/flour mixture to sit for at least thirty minutes before baking. And don't drain the liquid before you pour it into the crust because that is where the flour is which is the thickening agent. Really a great recipe. Thanks....I have made this pie several times now, and will tell you that 1) There is no need to cook the mixture first, but the rhubarb should be cut into very small pieces for it to bake properly. 2) It must cool before it will set; but it WILL set - if you follow the directions. If you are nervous about it setting, I used cornstarch once instead of flour and that too worked well. Hubby requests this a lot during the summer and even bought a few rhubarb plants this year to ensure it gets made!

Easy Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I used two teaspoons of baking powder instead of two tablespoons, but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly, and it was great. I like that I always have those ingredients on hand, so it is a quick easy meal.

Lemon Filling

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This was a very tasty filling. I used it in an Easter cake which had a strawberry cake layer and two confetti cake layers. I used this filling in between one layer and a stawberry filling in between the other layer. I frosted the cake with Special Buttercream Frosting from this site. It turned out really nicely. Very nice for spring time because it's not heavy at all. Not a crumb was left over. I also think it would be nice with angel food cake. Thanks for the recipe.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
This was the best frosting I have ever made! I did use 1 cup of butter in place of 1 of the cups of shortening. I also added 1 teaspoon each of vanilla, almond and butter extracts, which I highly recommend adding to any frosting recipe. It held up really well for piping (I actually did a basketweave pattern). It has great consistency and a wonderful taste. Everyone should try it!

Roasted Garlic

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
I used method two, and roasted about eight cloves. I sprinkled them with some salt and pepper, and they turned out great after about twenty minutes. I put them in mashed potatoes and threw a few cloves into my meatloaf. Yum! Thanks for the recipe!

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
Oh my God, these are soooo good. The only changes I made were using semi-sweet chocolate chips and dark corn syrup (That's all I had on hand) and they turned out amazing! I did cool each layer before putting on the next and I used a double boiler for the chocolate. They are SUPER easy and delicious. I think everyone should try them. Thanks for the recipe!

Butter Icing for Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
This is really good. I used 2 tablespoons of butter and about one tablespoon of cream cheese. I also threw in a teaspoon or so of marshmallow fluff. It was smooth and creamy, yet hardened just enough to coat my sugar cookies well. I used it on the Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies on this site.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
These were REALLY good. The only change I made was using 8oz of cream cheese and increasing the flour a bit. I used the Butter Icing for Sugar Cookies on this site to ice them. The cookies were soft and flavorful unlike some sugar cookie recipes that are dry and floury.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
These are so cute! I cut them into miniature gingerbread men shapes. I used about 15 oz of pumpkin, 3 huge tablespoons of peanut butter (my puppies LOVE peanut butter), and I added about 2 tablespoons of molasses, 1/2 cup of instant oats and about 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds. It ended up making ALOT of puppy treats, so that's what my puppies are giving to their friends for Christmas! Thanks for the recipe!

Oatmeal Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This was the first time I have ever eaten or baked an oatmeal pie, but my husband loves them so I decided to give it a shot for Thanksgiving. It turned out very well and was super easy to make. Some people really liked it, some hated it. It does taste similar to pecan pie, and I thought it was good served with whipped cream.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
Yummy! This is so much better than the tuna casserole recipe I normally use. I followed the recipe exactly and it definitely did not need anything else. I will make this again and again.
