The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
I have never enjoyed making sugar cookies for various reasons. Now THIS RECIPE makes it FUN. I added an extra cup of sugar, a little lemon zest and some lemon juice for flavor. I divided the dough into three parts to refrigerate which worked out great. Then I just worked with one section at a time. They held their shape and tasted great. THANKS!!

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
I made it exactly according to the recipe. It was wonderful. Initially I thought that 1 tablespoon of soda was too much, but I did it anyway and all was fine. Perhaps the denseness of the banana batter needs more leavening. The walnuts truly complement the banana flavor. Will make this again (and again). Thanks.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
I've made these five times now with my grandchildren (ages 4,5,6). It is an easy recipe, fun to make into shapes, and delicious to eat. We made some with salt and most plain and brushed with butter when they came out of the oven. My only constructive comment deals with the baking soda wash. We used MUCH less than the 1/2 cup of baking soda recipe calls for and you don't need 4 cups water! I dissolved 2 TEASPOONS in about 1 cup water (in the microwave) and then put the solution in a flat dish. I dipped the pretzels in the solution (rather than letting the children) and it worked out fine. You do not need to waste all that baking soda. You need the solution to make them brown, so they look like pretzels, but you do not need a lot. We tried brushing the solution on the pretzels (and the children could do that) but the color looked best by dipping. A WONDERFUL KITCHEN PROJECT.... will do again, many times, I'm sure.

Cheesecake Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
OUTSTANDING!! I made these "as is" although I read all the reviews. I used parchment to line a 9x13 pan which worked fine. I was glad that others mentioned how "strange" it looked after you add the cream cheese layer--- but don't worry, as it bakes everything works out great. The taste is tart but creamy. I garnished with some whipped cream and a slice of fresh strawberry. We liked these MUCH BETTER than just a plain lemon bar.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Excellent the first night and even better as leftovers. I made it exactly according to the recipe, but I think the changes others have made with the cheese and maybe pepperoni would be good too. A winner for us!

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
Easy to make and a great taste, especially with the idea of strawberries on top. I posted photo #10. I made two 5 inch layers, and had some left over for some cupcakes to freeze. Then I cut each horizontally. I used a cream cheese frosting and horizontally sliced fresh strawberries between each layer. It was DELICIOUS with that blend of flavors. By making smaller layers we had a tall elegant cake. The cake was great the next day, although the fresh fruit doesn't keep too long. THANKS, Cathy, for the recipe AND for the photo ideas.

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
I needed to make a birthday "cake" for a 4-year-old who doesn't like cake. This was a fantastic solution. I put the rice krispy treat into a jelly roll pan, cut 5 inch circles and layered them with pink icing as I would a cake. I even was able to make a rice krispy dress for a 4 inch princess figure and iced it white. My granddaughter was thrilled! And of course she ate the princess piece and then gave the toy a bath before she played with it. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe for a creative alternative for a fun birthday cake. I'll do it again for sure. I've posted photos #83 and #84 on this site.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
Mmmmmm. I followed the recipe and reviewers comments with 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice (5 small lemons) and zest from 2 lemons. Also I made it in an 8 x 11 pan lined with parchment paper and baked longer. Somehow I was surprised when they came out of the oven as the top had a thin crust. But after cooling I dusted with powdered sugar and cut them. Wow, these are beautiful, fresh, tangy, and delicious!!

Impossible Coconut Pie II

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
Wonderful!! I needed to use up some eggs and milk and made this as written except that I used butter for the margarine and baked it about 55 minutes. Oh, was it good!! I'm sure to make it again and again. Extremely easy to make as well. 5 stars!

Candy Cane Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
It is rare that I give such a low mark, but these were quite a disappointment. I divided the dough in half and colored part red. Forming the "rope" and twisting was not obvious to me.... and mine were extremely time consuming and not very pretty. I found a video on Joy Of Baking that shows the twisting technique. However, I don't think it is worth all the effort. The taste was "so-so" in my opinion.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
Excellent for KIDS! We did this with a 3 and 5 year old with good success. I had divided the dough into three sections and wrapped individually and chilled overnight. They warmed up quickly and kids rolled their own on parchment paper. They tore away the excess dough and used a spatula to put them on the cookie sheet. We made smaller sized cookies (4 inch and 2 inch) and baked them at 400 for 6 minutes. The thickness and size must be considered for baking time. Kids decorated by dipping candies in frosting and sticking to the cookies. Quite a successful project!

Sweet Potato Casserole IV

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I used reviewer's suggestion of 1/2 cup of sugar. It was perfect for our tastes! I also cut back on the sweet topping amount. The eggs, milk, butter made it creamy and a dash of nutmeg enhanced the flavor. We loved it.

Apple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Loved this! I've made it twice already. I used other reviewers comments and chopped 3 cups (not 2) apples finely, split sugar to half white/half brown, split oil to half applesauce/half oil, and added a little bit of cloves. In my oven, 55 minutes was enough, so watch the timing carefully. I carefully greased and floured my Bundt pan. After cooling 15 minutes, it came out perfectly. I dusted it with powdered suger. I'll also note that it is even better on the second/third day!! Great for fall!!

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Traditional family dishes give you an opportunity to share wonderful family stories associated with the foods. For Seven Layer Salad, I'll just say that the instructions should include the phrase "Toss before serving." One time my sister-in-law prepared this in advance so that my brother would serve it to the family gathering (she was going to be arrive late). Well, my brother served the children a "spoonful" such than one got the bacon, one cheese, one lettuce, and my son (who will never forget it) got only mayo!! This story is ALWAYS retold when the salad appears and we laugh again and again. Regarding the recipe, I agree that 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream tastes better.... but be sure to toss the salad!!

Dianne's Pumpkin Cookie Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
This is fun to make with excellent results. I followed the recipe exactly omitting the nutmeg in the cookie dough. I was very careful with the timing. My suggestion is to plan ahead and be ready because you have to work fast to get the indentations for the cups. My mini-muffin pans are of two different sizes and I had to find "things" that would fit to make the cavity in the hot dough. Dianne suggests a metal measuring tablespoon, but do try it first to make sure it fits in the mini-muffin tin. I had to improvise, but I did get it done. Also, be ready to coax these out of the muffin tins. I have a high temperature spatula that I used to loosen them up. When they move out, you'll smile and say "how cute." The filling is rather sweet, but since these are small you don't eat too many of them, I think my guests will enjoy them. I piped the filling into the cookie cups, smiled and said "how beautiful." I now have mine in the freezer as I prefer to make these types of things ahead of time. I may consider some different fillings too. These are SO MUCH BETTER than any you may have tried with prepared cookie dough (waayyy too greasy). Thanks, Dianne.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
Oh my...this is the best hamburger meal I've made in quite some time. A few months ago we went to an Irish restaurant where my husband ordered Shepherd's Pie that was "horrible" in his opinion. I decided I'd look for a good homemade recipe. This was it! He said it was 10 times better than ANY he'd ever had. I read many of the reviews and added the Worchesteshire sauce, minced garlic, doubled the ketchup and used mixed frozen peas, carrots, and corn. I did not add the gravy mix because I thought the flour/beef broth would be fine. As I sauteed the meat mixture it was beautiful and very tasty. I made real mashed potatoes. I wanted to make smaller servings, so I divided mine into six single serving sized bowls. We ate some and froze the others for a quick tasty and healthy meal. THANKS Jacquie!!

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
These are definitely "good" but I was expecting more. I placed the nuggets on a rack on a cookie sheet (as other suggested) but the crumbs fell off and burned in the over causing quite a smell. They were tender but not as crispy as I anticipated. Our grandchildren didn't care much for them. Next time I won't use the Italian Style bread crumbs, but rather plain bread crumbs.

Cream Cheese Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Quite tasty and will make again. I wanted something that I could prepare in the morning and bake when guests arrived. This was perfect. I used the tip of adding spinach for color and I did chill the cream cheese mixture before rolling up. I dipped the meat rolls in the sugar/mustard sauce and rolled in chopped pecans. The flavor blend was excellent! I served these with fresh tomatoes in a caprese salad with cibatta bread.
