A tasty cornbread. My search for a great cornbread recipe is complete.

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I've made this three times so far. Tried it with the rum this first time and just couldn't get it down. Omitted the rum and it's PERFECT!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I wish there was a 3.5 rating. The only reason I gave this a 4 was the taste. It had a great flavor but the Thanksgiving presentation didn't fly. My husband wouldn't even try it. No traditional pecan top. It looked very dry. And cutting it... it looked more like pecan crumble than pecan pie. I might make this one again, cutting out some of the sugar for a touch or corn syrup.... it will take some experimentation.

Fudge Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I normally test recipes before I bake for an event. But I made this one on a whim on Thanksgiving. I've been looking at the recipe for over a year now and hadn't made it. Boy I'm glad I did! Admittedly it did get overbaked. ( I blame my husband for not hearing the oven timer, lol) But it still turned out Sooooo good! I used a graham cracker crust instead of regular pie crust. A must make!

Gooey Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
My husband is a strict chocolate chip cookie fan. He looks so disappointed when he finds out I'm "trying a new recipe". I'm happy to report that he's excited when he finds out I'm making these instead of chocolate chip. A few tips - You don't need to refridgerate the dough before rolling in powdered sugar, just be gentle. I use a cookie disher and drop the dough into a small bowl of powdered sugar, tossing them lightly then fishing them out with a fork or my fingers. They come out perfect everytime.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
Fantastic banana bread... I feel that the cooktime/temp is a bit off. I had to bake mine for almost an hour and a half and the top got too brown. I think 1hr and 45 at 325 would be better.

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Too many pecans! I even took out the layer of quartered pecans on the bottom and it was still a bit much. Taste wasn't bad just wasn't exactly what I was looking for.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
The only reason this gets any stars at all is because of taste. But as for the title "The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies".. well.. too much baking powder causes this cookie to puff up and become cake-like. The cookies lose their cookie cutter shapes. Even tried cutting it with a 1/2 tsp of baking soda and still did not work. I might make these again simply for a sugar cookie but will never use them for a cut out sugar cookie.

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Easy. Tasty. Salty. But to be expected with all the processed mixes. Opt for low sodium options if possible.

Cuban Water Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
Personally, I'm a fan of not tweaking a recipe. The first time I tried this one, the dough refused to come together. Too much flour, not enough water. Produced an extremely hard crust and a very dense grain. The second time, much of the same. Even tried cutting out a cup of flour. Still not enough. And one tablespoon of salt is just not enough for the large quantity this recipe makes. Cuban water bread is a poor man's bread. Pretty much just flour and water. The inside should be airier (is that a word, lol) and the crust should be pale and fairly thin. I will not be making this recipe again.

Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Delish! I used Yukon Golds so my potatoes weren't as fluffy but I loved the texture and the taste. Was going to use onion so I didn't have to go out and buy leeks, but boy am I glad I made the extra effort, very tasty!

Chicken and Dumplings IV

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
Holy ! Not only was this SUPER tasty, but it was the closest to my grandmother's than I've ever found! Had to add more water to cover the chicken, so I added one chicken boullion cube to make up the difference. Also did a half water half milk mix with the flour to thicken. FANTASTIC! I wish I could pick 6 stars.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
Excellent, made plenty. The two of us had left overs for days. Loved the addition of the mashed carrots instead of diced. Added some frozen sweet peas to the ground beef. Very good.

Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
Could only find yellow fin tuna at the time. Seasoning was excellent. Also coated in sesame seeds. Two minutes per side gave us about a medium doneness. Tasty.

Renaissance Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I made these for the first night my parents were over for dinner after I moved in with the boyfriend. Glad it made a good impression! They've been begging for more ever since! Much better if cream cheese is at room temp and I found that it makes a lot more mix than what you need... Easy correction? Make more mushrooms! Yum!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Very tasty, used fresh mushrooms instead of canned (not a fan of canned vegetables). Made sure to drain them, and it was wonderful.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Excellent! Boyfriend loved these, we prefer a bit sweeter tomato topping, so I added a couple spoonfuls of brown sugar and it came out wonderful.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
The best oatmeal cookies ever. Got mixed reviews from others. Some say perfect, some say too sweet. Just taste preference I guess. Only tip I have is to let the butter get soft naturally. If you must microwave, then only till it just starts to melt, then whip it before you add your sugar.
