Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
this is my first review!! my mom would make this casserole without a recipe...just threw whatever she had in the dish! -i cooked a diced onion in some baconfat over low heat (to carmalize them). -i added some minced garlic, chopped mushrooms, and fresh spinach to the onions to sweat them a bit, and added it to my noodle/chicken mixture -i also used buttermilk instead of cream or skim milk (along w/ the soup and sour cream) this one will be a winner! :)

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
it's a great base recipe. i sauteed minced onion, garlic, celery, and carrots before adding the hot water and chicken. thanks for the great semi-homemade recipe!!

Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
they did not have much maple flavor. but they tasted fine. save your maple syrup for other recipes, unless you can get it cheap...

Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
i didn't really measure anything except the butter...and it's because sticks of butter say where to cut for each tablespoon. :) i know i didn't have enough confectioners sugar. i melted 1/3 cup sugar w/ the butter and chocolate (again...i used left over chocolates given to me from friends for's what i had lol) but the jist??? sour cream+chocolate=frosting recipe= FABULOUS!!! i knew by using darker chocolate would make the frosting set up, if chilled, so thankfullly the laws of science and chemestry still hold up in everyday kitchens. :) :) thanks for the recipe!!

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
i've made this coffeecake many times. it always turns out wonderful! today though, i had a lot on my mind, and FORGOT to add the sour cream. since i already put it in the bundt pan, i figured, there's no turning back. i'm crossing my fingers that it's just as good w/out sour cream, as it is with.

Vanilla Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
i like all pumpkin pies...but i would skip the unnecessary step of adding flour to the batter. since discovering pumpkin chiffon pie, all others seem, just okay...

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
I highly recommend using either walnut oil or coconut oil for a subtle shift of flavor! I also add vanilla, which isn't mentioned in the recipe. Great quick muffin recipe!
