The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
These cookies were great! I followed the recipe exactly, put down some wax paper, showed my sons (ages 5 and 8) to sprinkle flour down and roll them out, cut the cookies and transfer to the pan. I walked away (except for putting sheets of cookies in the oven and pulling them out) and they had a blast! They turned out great and were easy for little fingers to handle. If two little kids can handle it with zero experience, I'd say it's a win! :) They tasted great even without frosting. I did find that if my boys rolled the dough a little thick they would spread, but when I did mine, they turned out perfectly shaped. Not a big deal considering these were just for us to ice and eat.

Pecan Pie Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
A family friend always brings cookies over that look just like this each Christmas, but she guards her recipe... so I tried these hoping they would be similar. I was pretty disappointed. They were easy to make, but they just need something else. I didn't over-bake and the filling is very sticky/chewy. I was also looking for more of a pie-crust like outer where this is very much like a cookie crust. They weren't terrible, but I won't be making them again.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
These cookies were just ok. Too much peanut butter for my taste. I prefer the good old fashioned peanut butter cookie with chocolate kiss in the middle to balance out the peanut butter.

Peppermint Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
This fudge is awesome. I'm not really big on "traditional" dry fudge. My husband is also not a big fudge person and really liked this. The texture is smooth and creamy. It was the easiest desert I have ever made and everyone loved it. I increased the peppermint extract to 1 tsp as many other reviewers did as well. I didn't even pay attention to how much crushed candy it called for and crushed up two candy canes, which was the perfect amount for garnish. We will definitely be making this each Christmas!

Banana Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
This banana bread is awesome! My husband is a banana bread snob and has yet to like any home made banana bread better than his favorite... until this! I made one with pecans and one with walnuts. This will definitely be something I am baking regularly.

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
I made this for an office luncheon this past week and everyone loved it. I did roll it differently than the directions state (which I won't be doing again!) based on someone else's review. I dusted the roll with confectioners sugar and rolled in parchment paper because I didn't have a towel handy. The sugar melted and made it even stickier, so it was harder to work with, but it tasted great. Next time I will just use a towel. I also put the cream in the fridge after preparing because I find it is easier to roll without it spilling out. Edited to add: made this again for thanksgiving, I rolled in Parchment paper again and didn't dust with sugar, roll came out PERFECT!

Pumpkin Roll I

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I made this recipe for my son with a few modifications (as he has a gluten allergy). Only thing I changed was adding all purpose gluten free flour. All other ingredients were GF. It was my first time making a "rolled" desert. It was amazing! I imagine it would be just as good with regular flour, if not better. The rest of my family couldn't even tell that this was a "gluten free" dessert. Will definitely be saving this one.

Sweet Potato Casserole VI

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I have never liked sweet potatoes after 24 years on this planet.. but my husband loves them so I make them every Thanksgiving. I usually go with a marshmellow/yam combo because I'm never eating it.. but this year I decided to try something different. My whole family enjoyed this dish, including myself! About 2 1/2 lbs of sweet potatoes gave me 4 cups, and I made it as listed here rather than decreasing the white & brown sugar as suggested by others. I saved this recipe as a new family favorite... and can no longer say that I hate sweet potatoes. Delicious!!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
I thought this recipe was great, a bit too much garlic for my taste. Would cut back on it and make it again.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This recipe is AMAZING! It was the hit of my Thanksgiving feast. I was hoping there were leftovers but my family of 4 cleaned the casserole dish. My husband wants me to make it more often! This one will definitely go into my personal recipe box to be handed down. Love it!!

Candied Yams

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I don't like yams but my husband loved this. I followed the recipe exactly, drained and mashed the yams but my marshmallows disappeared?? Not sure why... Also added cinnamon, everyone loved them even with disappeared marshmallows.

These pancakes are amazing! I'll never try another recipe or use pancake mix again. My whole family thought they were better than any other pancakes I've ever made!
