Crusty Potato Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
The first time I made it I gave it one star. I followed the advice of one reviewer and put it on fast bake. I also reduced the flour and increased the water as per the same reviewer. The bread hardly rose and it was still gooey and hadn't finished cooking. Next time I will follow the recipe as written and use a regular bake cycle. The second time I made it, I followed the directions, and set the machine for a regular cycle. It worked better (boy did the house smell good!) but the bread still didn't rise as high as I would like. Next time I will increase the yeast and see if that doesn't help. My husband said that the instant potatoes gives it a denser texture so that maybe why it didn't rise as high. It tasted good though!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
These are great! I used a cookie scoop to get uniform cookies. As soon as they came out of the oven, I sprinkled them with white sugar. The sugar sticks which is great. My kids really like them! Thanks!

Sweet Honey French Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2007
This is the best bread I have ever made in a bread machine. Yes, it's not sweet, but man it's good!I absolutely love how crusty it is. I was planning on making 2 loaves since these are small. I sliced into the first one to taste it. Wow! I was starting to think I would never produce a awesome loaf of bread in the bread machine. I am going to make a second loaf right away for dinner. I think my DH will flip over this bread. My kids will like it to.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
These were very good and the extra 1/4 cup flour is the trick! It could use some extra flavor though. Maybe replacing the vanilla with coconut extract. Mine also didn't come out perfectly round like the picture. Oh well, they still taste good. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside

Jenn's Out Of This World Spaghetti and Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2006
I really liked the meatballs. They were firm and didn't fall apart in the sauce. I did make the whole thing in my crockpot and it worked great! My kids complained it was too sweet. Can't please anyone! I may make this again and substitute some of the tomato paste (the cause of the sweetness?) for more crushed tomatoes.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
This was good but after an hour it wasn't cooked all the way through. I took it out anyway because the outside was a deep golden brown color and I didn't want it to burn. I even added an extra 1/2 cup of flour because the batter was so soupy. I will try this again. I reduced the recipe to make only one loaf. I will add 2 cups flour and ring out the zucchini and see if that makes a difference.

Overnight Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
I tried this bread. I am looking for a good bread to use to make homemade french toast. I didn't add the raisins this time. The dough was almost soupy when I went to put it in the fridge. I left it in my mixer bowl because of that. To my surprise, it did rise a little by morning. I had to add 2-1/2 to 3 cups of flour to it to get it to a rolling or patting consistancy. My Kitchen Aid worked great for this! I can't imagine using a hand mixer. I also substituted powdered buttermilk for the liquid buttermilk. As someone else said, it does make a lot of dough so I made two breads out of it. The sugar/cinnamon topping is enough for 2 breads. I let it rise again after it went into the pans for an hour in a warm oven as an experiement to see if it would rise at all again. Well, it rose beautifully! I was afraid all that mixing in of the extra flour would have killed the yeast. I'm glad it didn't. Now to bake it. It baked for 25 minutes and looked nice. I let them cool and I sliced them. They tasted great! They sliced nice, had good consistancy. Good I think for french toast. I was a little disapointed that there didn't seem to be more cinnamon flavor. I may increase the cinnamon another 1-2 tsp. I upped the amount I put in to 1 tbsp. I think it needs more. Also, maybe adding more topping to the dough may help as well. Overall, I'm very pleased with this recipe. It takes a while, but the results are worth it. I WILL make this again!!!

Best Rolls Ever!

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
I made these today--started last night. I was disapointed that the dough didn't seem to rise over night in the refigerator. The dough does seem to make a lot of rolls. I let them rise a second time before baking. They didn't rise after 1 hour in a draft free warm oven. I did forget to knead them. I don't know if that makes as difference. I went ahead and baked them. They didn't rise either as they baked. I had more rolls waiting to rise and bake. The second batch I skipped the second rise and just put them in the oven. They had sat on the counter waiting for the first batch to finish rising and baking they and didn't rise either. They tasted OK, my son really liked them and my husband liked them to. He said he wished they would have risen more. I may make these again.

Cream Filled Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2006
I used a boxed cake mix and used the ingredients for the filling. It was way too sweet and I love sweet stuff! I would cut the powdered sugar to 1 cup or add some cream crease to cut down on the sweetness. Plus it was thin and I put them in the fridge to firm up the filling. I will not use the filling again. Will keep looking.

Carrot Pineapple Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2006
It's good, but it doesn't have a lot of flavor. It needs something like more cinnamon or something. I covered the cake with foil at one point because the edges seemed to be getting overcooked and the middle was like jello. I finally put the cake on the bottom rack and it did the trick to firm up the middle. The frosting needed a lot more powdered sugar. I don't like the taste of cream cheese so I added a total of 3-1/3 cups of powdered sugar before it didn't taste like cream cheese anymore. My kids loved the frosting and liked the cake! I even put the frosting on my hot cross buns! I may make this again. Was disapointed based on all the rave reviews.

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
This is great!!!! An easy one bowl recipe. I used whole frozen cranberries instead and it came out wonderful. It was wonderfully sweet and tangy (too tangy, but that is not the recipe's fault).

Double Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
These were great! Yes, the dough is sticky, but I used two teaspoons you spoon the dough and it worked great! I used 1 teaspoon garlic powder instead of the onion powder and it tasted good and not overpowering. The rolls were light and airy. It is an easy quick recipe. These would be great for a first time cook. So far these are the best rolls I made. Thank you so much for the recipe!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2005
This is a simple and easy recipe. I had given up making homemade bread because it took all day. Even the bread machine doesn't make a delicious bread as this. It is so easy, and with a little patience (waiting for the yeast to proof and the two risings) you will have a great looking, smelling and tasty loaf of bread. This recipe is going in my recipe box and I will hand it out to others.

Streusel Kuchen

Reviewed: May 11, 2005
This was easy to make! I realized that I forgot the cinnamon so that's why it tasted different. I baked it 5 minutes longer to make sure it was done and the bottom got a little tough. Will make this again.

Hot Cross Buns I

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2005
This is an awesome recipe! My husband loved it! It is soo easy! I added raisins instead of the currants and I liked that the raisins (being added in the last 5 min) didn't get chopped up but stayed whole and added a nice sweet flavor. I will definately make these again. This was my first time ever making hot cross buns and I will do it again! Review Number 2 on this recipe--I made this again but I got lazy and didn't want to make all those rolls so I made 12 and put the rest of the dough in a loaf pan. I let it rise as per instructions and baked it for 30 minutes. I took it out after 15 minutes because the top was golden brown. I tested it using a metal skewer. The inside was still gooey. I covered the loaf with foil and baked for another 10 minutes. Not quite done. Back in still covered for 5 more minutes. Done! I let it cool and frosted it with a carrot cake frosting of 8oz cream cheese, 4 tbsp butter and 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar. Now granted, it makes way too much for a bread ot rolls, but I also made a carrot cake that used most of it. My kids raved about the rolls! The bread came out good too although it was hard to cut and the individual slices didn't hold their shape as I was slicing it. An awesome recipe!!!!!!!!

Overnight Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2004
I decided to double the recipe and I noticed right away when I put the strusel on, it started sinking into the cake. I baked it the next morning, and almost all of it sunk to the bottom of the cake. I think if I try this again, I would bake without the strusel topping for at least 20-30 minutes or until the topping wouldn't sink in and then add the strusel. I was disapointed in the strusel part but loved the rest of it. It has a nice flavor and is very easy to make. I love that you don't have to bake till morning.
