Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
Milly, I love you! This recipe is exactly what I was looking for today. I wanted an easy, chewy bar-type dessert, not chocolate, maybe oatmeal...I typed "oatmeal brownies" into the search and this recipe popped up. Perfect! I was a little worried there wasn't quite enough dough for my pan, but I spread it evenly to the edges and it baked up nicely. My husband, kids and the neighbor kids all loved them. I added a handful of chocolate chips but they would still be delicious with no added ingredients as the submitter suggests in her review. This is absolutely one of those recipes I will make often. Thank you so much for this simple but yummy recipe!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
I followed Breadguy's instructions for using a KA mixer and it turned out great! Very easy, rose beautifully and tasted great- the whole family loved it. In my opinion, the taste isn't quite as good as some other bread recipes I've tried, but it's still delicious and definitely one I'll make again. Our family is trying to eat less animal products, so I appreciate that this recipe doesn't call for milk or eggs. Thanks so much for sharing!

Maria's Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
I used long grain brown rice (not instant) and it took forever to cook!!! As in, probably close to 90 minutes, maybe even longer. The rest of the meal was long gone and dishes cleared before this was ready to eat, and even then it was al-dente. I'm sure some of it was my fault because I kept removing the lid to check it every 5-10 minutes after the initial 35 minutes had passed and it was still super crunchy. I also had to add a lot more liquid (used some vegetable stock i had on hand) or it would have completely dried out since it cooked so long. Despite all of that, I liked the flavor a lot, and it was really easy so I will make it again. I'll just have to use a different type of rice or start dinner at the crack of dawn. :-). Thank you for sharing the recipe--it really was tasty, and not the recipe's fault I used a long cooking rice.

Spicy Tuna Fish Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
Thought these were very good! I cut back a little on the cayenne because the kids were eating them but followed everything else. I wonder if those who mentioned they were mushy perhaps made them more thick than I did...mine weren't mushy at all but I can see how they might be if you didn't flatten them somewhat. I served with homemade tartar sauce. I preferred these over salmon patties. Definitely a nice change of pace. Thanks for sharing!

Mom's Fabulous Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
I had to make a couple of minor changes to use what I had, but followed the recipe closely. I used a 12 oz can of Grands jr biscuits instead of the 16 oz can, and dried parsley instead of fresh ( although I'm sure fresh would have been better). I kept everything else the same with excellent results. My husband LOVED it and the kids liked it fine. The only thing I would do differently is cut the biscuits in quarters before adding...some of the ones in the middle were still on the doughy side underneath even though they were nicely browned on top. This took awhile to put together but was easy and much better than premade pot pies. Great comfort food on a chilly day! Thanks for sharing.

Molasses Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
All five of us, including 3 picky kids who aren't usually big muffin eaters, thought these were great. I will absolutely make these again! I subbed canola oil for the butter and they were still a teensy bit on the drier side, but I expected that because of the whole wheat flour. I added more cinnamon and ginger, maybe not quite double the amount included in the recipe, which was perfect for us in terms of spice. I also added about 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips to half of the batter for the kids and they all had seconds. Easy to make, I had all of the ingredients, and everyone liked them...that's worth five stars to me! Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Butter Meltaways

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
The reviewers who said these are like a cross between a sugar cookie and pecan sandie (minus the pecans) nailed it. I tripled the dough and chilled overnight to bake this morning for a party tonight. They are soft, but with a crumbly texture. My dough was a little dry so I was worried they wouldn't turn out. But it came together easily when I shaped them into small disks. They don't spread much at all so be sure to flatten slightly with a fork as directed. They remain very pale on top so be sure to check that they're done early--you don't want to over bake these. They are subtle in flavor so don't skip the sugar on top. A very good, easy and slightly different cookie that should appeal to a variety of people. Would be perfect with cup of coffee or tea! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
Made these into small eggs last Easter and everyone loved them. I kind of forgot about this recipe until yesterday when I was looking for something to take to a Super Bowl gathering. I doubled the recipe, but used only 4 cups of powdered sugar. I added enough milk to make it creamy enough to shape. I like to use Peter Pan p.b. for cooking...it seems to be less dry than some other peanut butter. I shaped these into bite sized footballs, and dipped them in a combo of melted semi sweet and milk chocolate chips. Then I melted a small handful of white chocolate chips in a ziplock bag, snipped off a TINY corner of the bag and piped lines across the top to look like stitches on a football. They turned out great and were the hit of the party! Everyone raved about how cute they were and how much they tasted like a Reese's cup. It made enough that I also shaped about 15 hearts and put them in the freezer (before dipping) to use for Valentine's Day. This recipe is time consuming and messy, but worth it!!! My 8 year old said they taste like a cross between Reese's and heaven. :-). Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe!

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
We loved this soup!!! I added more celery and carrots, so I also added more broth. So easy, and a great use of leftover chicken I had in the freezer. Delicious, hearty, and comforting. This will be added to our regular rotation. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Sticky Pecan Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
I wanted to try something new this morning. I saw Mauigirl's review last night and thought "Aha!" These were moist and tasty, and 2 out of the 3 kiddos had a second muffin. Around here, that alone could be worth 5 stars. I did leave the pecans out of theirs, lest they thought I was trying to poison them. The caramel "goo" on the bottom was yummy, and does remind me of pecan pie. The only big problem I had was that I'm afraid my muffin pan will never come clean. Despite greasing the cups very well, these puppies stuck like nobody's business. I was able to run a knife around the edges and they ended up coming out fairly easily, but some of the caramel and muffin stayed in the pan. Since everyone liked them and they are easy to make with pantry staples, I will likely make again. I will just have to figure out how to get them to release more easily. I got 12 muffins with just a little batter left over. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Smoked Salmon Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
Made this for a Christmas gathering and everyone really liked it. It made a large amount, so I will only make half next time unless I have a lot of guests. I served it on water crackers. I couldn't find fresh smoked salmon so I had to use canned. I imagine it would be even better with fresh, but it was still delicious and I will make it again. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Olive Oil Dip for Italian Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Super simple and fast way to dress up a loaf of french bread, and very tasty! We especially love the flavor of the balsamic vinegar. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. This would be great for a dinner party since it seems "fancier" than plain garlic bread.

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Made these for the first time today and we liked them a lot. I made per the recipe, except for using 1 tsp. salt instead of 2 tsp. I simmered a full two hours before baking, and added some of the bean water halfway through because they looked a little dry. After about 3 1/2 hours, they again looked dry on top, but were pretty "soupy" underneath when I gave a quick stir, so I kept them in the oven uncovered for another 45 minutes or so. These weren't as sweet as my usual baked beans (which are very sweet), but they were a nice change for me and dh actually liked them better. They are time consuming, but very little of it is hands-on. I will make these again. Thanks for the recipe!

Homemade Pan Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Mine weren't nearly as pretty as the picture. In fact, they almost had a biscuit-like appearance on top, which I attribute to my lack of experience with yeast doughs. Fortunately, they tasted MUCH better than they looked. Soft on the inside, with a nice crust on the edge (topped off with a little melted butter as soon as I removed from the oven)--my family loved these! Even the picky kiddos loved them, and that's saying a LOT. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! This will be the one I use when I have the time.

Olive and Blue Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
This was great and SO simple! I love green olives and bleu cheese, so this was perfect. I made it the night before serving. My grocery store was out of fresh chives, so I subbed 1 TBS. fresh parsley instead. Other than that, made it per the recipe. I plan to make it again for Christmas Eve. Thanks for sharing this recipe--I know my cheeseball family will enjoy it! :-)

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Dh and I LOVED this bread!!!! So easy and perfect with a bowl of homemade soup. I will make this often. I thought it was great plain or with a little butter, & my kiddos ate theirs with a drizzle of honey. Dense, moist and not overly sweet...plus, I had all of the ingredients!! Can't wait to try it again with a steaming bowl of stew. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
I have made these twice in less than a week. The first time, dh took them to a work function and I didn't get to taste them. His coworkers gave rave reviews, so I made them for the fam tonight. I am surprised at how rich and chocolatey they are--other brownie recipes I've tried that use cocoa powder rather than baking chocolate aren't this fudgey. I had to add 1-2 TBS of half and half to the frosting both times to get it to a spreadable consistency. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. Things I especially love about this recipe: SO simple and easy, I always have the ingredients on hand, it only makes an 8X8 pan (so we don't go overboard) but is easily doubled, and the easy frosting makes them extra special. Not being a honey lover, I was a little hesitant about adding it, but I can't taste it. If you haven't given these a try, go do it now! :-) Thank you, Angie!

A Little Country Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I've been on a pumpkin kick lately--bread, muffins, pie and now this cake. Gotta get my fix after the shortage last year! ;-) This cake is very simple to put together and I like that it doesn't make a huge one. I didn't have enough crisco so I subbed 1 cup of canola oil. I also borrowed Naples34102 glaze recipe (which is simple and perfect and would be fabulous on so many things--thank you!) instead of the frosting. Watch the baking time--mine was plenty done after only 45 minutes. I used my Pampered Chef 10" square stoneware baking pan. Will definitely make again!
