To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
one of the better muffins recipes I've tried. I seem to have a problem with getting my muffins to have a nice rounded top. this recipe was the prettiest muffin I think I have ever made. I used buttermilk as other reviewers suggested. my first batch was thicker than my second, not sure what was different but the thicker batch did round up much nicer. Flavor was good, like other reviewers I found the amount of topping was way too much one batch of topping did two batches of muffins. will make this one again for sure.

Mound Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
always a big hit when I make these. much easier to spread coconut then pour the condensed milk over that. also don't bother melting the choc chips just sprinkle over top when just out of oven wait a couple minutes then spread then out smooth. Just do not do what I did last year, when in trying to make more than one thing at once I forgot that the pan had already been in the oven for the first layer after I spread the coconut and cond milk. Picked up pan with my bare hands! screamed in pain and dropped whole pan on floor (GLASS) can you say gooey mess!!

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
these are terrific! easy to make, love that you don't have to cut them out. I followed the recipe exactly - my oven I baked them about 16 min. Thank you to whoever posted the tip to grate the butter into the flour mix, so much easier!!

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
I like many other reviewers was nervous about making a dessert roll. I followed the recipe exactly other than using a 10x15 pan like so many others said they did, I sprayed the pan lined with wax paper and then greased and floured the wax paper. I turned it out on the towel and the paper peeled off without a problem I then rolled it let it cool made the filling (again followed recipe exactly) I thought it was just the right amount. rolled back up and trimmed the ends so I could taste test. YUM. my second one is now cooling in its towel as I write this review (a can of pumpkin will make 2 rolls, can't have waste!)

I tried this last year and will do again this year. I saved my "mold" I used an aluminum rectangle pan which I then put foil around. It was fun winding the dough on and I found it pretty easy especially after reading all the great reviews and tips. I baked it, it looked fantastic, filled with various veggies, with a dip and cheese and crackers as an appetizer while dinner was cooking got raves about how nice it looked.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
I've made this 3 times now, I agree with other reviewers it's the best apple crisp i've made with one exception, I do not add the water. I use macs and I usually use about 3 1/2 lbs (prior to peeling and coring). I too find this to be my go to crisp recipe.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
I made these last night. followed the recipe as written for the most part. after rolling I dipped in almond bark in order to have the hard outer shell like a Lindt. I divided the batch into 3- used vanilla in one, orange liquer in 2nd and peppermint extract in 3rd. would use more of the flavoring next time (used 1 tsp of peppermint and almost 2 tsp. of the orange) neither of those were very minty or orangy. It was messy to roll but no more than I expected. The truffle mix was in fridge about an hour and I did put them back a couple times as it warmed up. I froze them after rolling for an hour or so before dipping. My husband who's highest accolade to me with anything I cook or bake is "it's good" asked me if I could make them by the carload as they were the most awesome thing he had ever had. High praise indeed from him!!

Tater Tot Casserole II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
I have made this recipe a number of times. I agree with other reviewers that it is a little bland but I notch up the garlic (I LOVE garlic) add onion and yes I brown the meat first. I use ground turkey and low fat cream of mushroom and chicken soup and just fill one of the cans with skim milk to add to the mix. My husband, who has issues with spicy and tomato based food really likes this one. I thought of putting veggies in the dish as others have done but I think I like it with a veggie on the side.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
This is so very good!! I didn't have sesame or poppy seeds but I will get some to add the next (3rd!) time I make this. I used craisins as most other reviewers did. My only change was add feta cheese. The dressing is to die for!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I made this for a cousin's get together weekend and everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. I did use the home made taco seasoning as recommended by the poster and substituted a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes and 1 small can of chilies for the 2 10 oz cans of diced tom w/chilies and used a can of pinto beans not chili beans. I cooked overnight shredded the chicken the next morning turned it off for a couple hours thanback on an hour before serving. It was just spicy enough and I will be making it again very soon, Very easy!! just another note, I have made this with beer and with chicken broth I think the flavor is far superior using the beer!!
