Irish Soda Farls

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
Rustic looking biscuits, and you don't have to turn the oven on! I had dried buttermilk so I used that. Added 1/2 tsp salt (recipe forgets to say how much). Cut 8 biscuits instead of 4, and used my cast-iron skillet. It got real smoky at first - I don't think you need any flour in the pan if the biscuits are already quite floured, and don't let the pan get too hot. The first batch came out good - dark brown color when done. Then tried cooking the rest covered with a lid on, at a low heat, 5 mins each side - they rose up a little higher that way. Maybe try one as a test until you get the hang of it. They come out looking dark and rustic when done, with a nice chewy crust.

Rich and Delicious Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
Wow! This is the best, most delicious banana bread I have ever tasted! I accidentally used 1 cup flour instead of 1 1/2 cups, and it came out moist and rich, kind of dense, like steamed pudding. Yum! What a delicious mistake! Otherwise, made it exactly as written, except reduced the salt to 3/4 tsp - added nothing. Baked at 325 degrees for one hour, as recipe states. Next time, I will try it with the 1 1/2 cups flour and add to my comments, maybe it will be just as good. But I really liked it with my "mistake" and might keep making it that way! (that's how brownies were invented - a botched chocolate cake)

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
Yes, these are the best. Same recipe as Hershey's "Best Brownies" and I've been making them for years. I use margarine and be sure not to overbake them so they will be nice and chewy.

Easy Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
Easy and superb! My husband said "wow, you could sell this!" Half the recipe fits into an 8" square pan. It does not have to fit all the way to the sides. When the Cool Whip squishes out, just smooth it all over like frosting. Tastes great if allowed to get a little soft, but the layers really show up pretty when you cut into it firm. I sprinkled it with chocolate sprinkles and made my own fudge sauce.

Butterscotch Sauce II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
Very good, but follow instructions exactly! If you let it boil, it gets gritty. Also, I added a little vanilla, but it tasted better without it - does not need vanilla, nor salt! An extra tablespoon of butter does not hurt, however. I made it a second time using margarine, and that worked well, too.

Chocolate Chip Mini-Muffins

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
Good, very tender, not overly sweet. Like sponge cake. I liked all the choc chips (be sure to use mini, as batter is thin and they would sink to the bottom).

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
We loved this! Especially my husband. Better than a restaurant. Would definitely make it for company. Used Romano cheese, margarine instead of butter, and Dover sole fillets (I think any white fish would do). My only regret is that I did not try this sooner!

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
Fun to make and the swirl was pretty. My husband said "wow." The icing is too thin, so I recommend either less milk or more powdered sugar, also only 1 tsp vanilla (it's expensive!). Also, best to drizzle the icing over the top or else it will get mixed up with the cinnamon-sugar. The cake was perfect.

Buzzsaw's BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
At first, I was skeptical about the cornstarch, but this recipe actually turned out great! My husband said it clung well to the meat on the BBQ and we both thought it tasted just like in a restaurant! I did add an extra tablespoon of molasses, a dash garlic salt, and 1/2 tsp liquid smoke (hickory), and used some dried minced onion and onion powder (cuz I had run out of onion). A keeper for us!

Irish Tea Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
Loved it! Similar to a sponge or crumb cake. Delicious even using margarine instead of butter. Make sure to beat the sugar/butter (or margarine) for a long time to incorporate air - it makes the cake come out light and fluffy (do not beat to much after adding flour though). Added only 1 Tb more milk. My husband said he "couldn't stop eating it." It is plenty sweet - sweetness just right. Baked it in a sprayed 8" sq glass pan - still gooey at 30 mins so I baked it 10 mins more (40 mins total). Will make this again!

Overnight Raisin Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2006
Awesome! Chilled the quick oats/buttermilk overnight, but skipped the 20 minute soak. Added buttermilk cuz the batter looked thick, but then had to add flour cuz they fell apart in the pan (watch that you don't add too much buttermilk!). After I got the batter right, they were absolutely delectable, tender, and delicious (wish author could have been more specific about the ingredient amounts). I doubled the sugar (used brown) and added some vanilla. Used veg oil instead of butter and seemed to work fine. You'll love these!

Baked Shells in Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
Easy, delicious way to eat tofu! I used DeCecco penne pasta and Prego Spaghetti Sauce with Mushrooms. Only problem was the top got too browned, so next time I'll either take it out at 20 minutes or else lower the heat. I used more chese than recipe said. Will definitely make many more times! Thank you Krista for recipe.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
Loved this cornbread! Even my husband liked it, and he does not like foods sweet. Very good to munch on the next day, spread with margarine.

Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2006
Yummy! I beat the eggs/milk/sugar with an egg beater. Used 3/4 cup quick oats to make it creamier (boil & stir 1 minute). Added 1/4 tsp salt. Liked it better without the butter, although I tried some with a little butter and that with the brown sugar really gives it the "butterscotchy" flavor. Maybe less sugar next time as very sweet (1/3 cup?). Yum! Will definitely make again - you get your oatmeal and an egg, too!

Cherry Cheezecake

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2005
I gave this a 5* even though I didn't care for the crust, because the filling is great (just like cheesecake) and my husband liked it! (he hates tofu). I used Azumaya Firm Tofu and Tofutti imitation cream cheese and it cut great. Also used Tofu Sour Cream instead of soy milk, only 1 Tb lemon juice and skipped the rind. Will definitely make again, but with another crust (this one was soggy).

Pistachio Cream Cheese Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2005
These made awesome chocolate chip cookies! I did not like them as written, so I added milk chocolate chips to the soft dough, took 1 Tb of dough and made balls, flattened them, and baked at 350 for 12 min on ungreased nonstick cooky sheets - Voila! Delicious tender choc chip cookies! (would rate as a 5* this way).

Coconut Cream Pie I

Reviewed: May 24, 2005
Used 1 small box French Vanilla instant pudding and 1 small box Creamcheese-flavored instant pudding 'cuz that's what I had on hand. Increased the milk to 2 cups because of the extra pudding and added 1 1/2 tsp coconut extract. Didn't read the recipe well and folded in all of the coconut and Cool Whip. It was creamy and delicious! My husband loved it and it disappeared fast.

Eskimo Cookies

Tastes like cooky dough or some type of fudge. Belongs in the "kids" section. Will not make again.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 15, 2005
These came out gorgeous and professional looking! Made two batches. Followed recipe exactly - used the melted unsalted butter and the extra egg yolk - but for the second batch, I increased the salt to 3/4 tsp. No need to chill the dough - it is soft and that's ok! Also no need to grease sheets or use parchment paper if you use nonstick sheets. Used 1/4 cup measuring cup and scooped it out with a teaspoon. Do not flatten, but leave large balls of dough on the sheet - six cookies per sheet - they will come out just right. Baked at 325 for 14 mins (my oven - ovens vary - experiment!). Double the recipe made 34 large cookies. My husband couldn't stop eating them and said they were "perfect"! (I agree!). Next time, I'll add some walnuts. Good for a bake sale, function, or gift!

Everything Cookies II

Reviewed: May 6, 2005
Was not sure how these would turn out because of the oil in the recipe, but they were great! Crisp and delicious. Made half the recipe, but should have made the whole thing! Added a little cinnamon and 2 Tb honey-crunch wheat germ. Used Mini M&M's and quick oats. Baked on nonstick cookie sheet (ungreased). Best to let them cool a minute on pan before removing to rack until they firm up a little. The M&M's made them look so pretty. I will be making these often, even at Christmas! Yum.
