Tuxedoville's Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
Excellent muffins..delicious taste, great texture, nice & crunchy on top, and moist on the inside. The only changes I made were to replace the raisins with pecans, and used the large size muffin tins.

Easy Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
These biscuits were very tiny, like bite-size, but were absolutely delicious. The outsides are brown & crunchy, and the insides are very moist & tasty.

Awesome Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 25, 2013
I also modified this recipe, and can happily say that they are the best muffins I've ever had/made (and I've made a myriad of different muffins). I did not have whole wheat flour, so I just used all-purpose flour. I also substituted canned dark sweet cherries in place of the blueberries.

Simple Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
Delicious.. I made it exactly as written, and it baked in precisely one hour. Perfect consistency, moist in the middle with a hard, crunchy top and you could really taste the peanut butter. I had been searching for a peanut butter muffin recipe for a long time, to no avail, so having found this recipe, it will take the place of the peanut butter muffins I was searching for.

Aunt Kathy's Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
This soda bread is very easy to make & very tasty. I used a standard, large size (9" long) bread loaf pan. It baked in 75 minutes, as the recipe says, and the top and sides turned out very brown & crunchy, just like we like it.

Simple Banana Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
This is a good banana cake, but the name is deceiving. This is by no means a coffee cake. It has a great taste and texture, looks just like the photo, and bakes exactly 30 minutes, as the recipe says.

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
This was a very tasty breakfast bread. It baked for the full 75 minutes and the top, bottom & sides turned out very well-browned & crunchy, just like we like it. Instead of chopped cranberries, we used dried cranberries that we had soaked in hot water first to plump them up.

Blueberry Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
This loaf was out of this world! It was the quickest, easiest breakfast bread I've ever made.. even the cleanup was minimal. I used canned bing cherries instead of blueberries.

Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Excellent! I made the large size muffins, and baked them 25 minutes. I used dried cranberries, and let them sit in very hot water for 1/2 hour before adding them to plump them up. The result was a perfect muffin, which browned nicely, was very moist without being sticky, and a delicious muffin. Thanks for posting!

Ginger Pear Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly, then had to add 10 minutes to the baking time, for it was not yet done after 40 minutes. It came out of oven looking really good, nicely browned, but it was actually too moist, a comment I've never made before, resulting in a soggy bread, and we did not like the taste of it.

Quick Mix Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
This was moist & browned nicely, but the top of mine turned out very sticky, even though I waited until it was totally cooled off to cover it. Also, the texture was too spongy.

Best Oven Baked French Toast

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
This was a big disappointment.. I wish I could say something good about it, but I cannot. Also, it doesn't taste like French Toast at all.

McNamara's Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
This Soda Bread rose well, had a very nice crunchy top & browned nicely. The batter is a bit difficult to handle, for it's stiff & sticky, so it was very hard to transfer from the bowl to the baking pan, even with a strong spatula. This bread is great on the day it's baked, but by the next day, it is all dried out and has no taste. I even tried freezing half of it on the day it was baked, taking it out of the freezer on the day it would be consumed, but that half was still dried out.

Family Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
Although this banana bread has a beautiful appearance, i.e. browned very nicely, rose perfectly & looks very professional (see my attached photo), it is lacking in taste. It has a rubbery consistency, not much taste, and surprisingly, the cream cheese & butter added nothing to the taste.

Poppy Onion Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
These looked good and browned very nicely, but I did not like the texture or taste. They basically have no taste and are a bit dry.

Good Morning Egg Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
This sausage egg bake is out of this world! Quick, easy, delicious, and it browned very nicely on top. Since Campbell's Soup no longer sells Nacho Cheese Soup (where I live, anyway), I used Cheddar Cheese Soup and added a dash of hot sauce and about a teaspoon of chili powder.

Irish Whiskey Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
These muffins have a nice taste, but I would change the name to 'Basic Breakfast Muffins'. They are plain muffins, and the Bailey's & whiskey taste are not detected at all after baking.

Kathy's French Toast Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Very nice taste, and it rose up and achieved a nice puffy result. However, the cream cheese did not add anything at all to it, so I would totally eliminate it next time. The cream cheese chunks did not melt, just remained exactly where you placed them before baking, browned on top, and actually did not have much taste. The end result looked like toasted marshmallows on top. For someone like me who does not make French Toast but likes it a lot, this was a good recipe and one I would make it again.

Kale Chips

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
These are great, and contrary to many of the reviews, I did bake them for 35 minutes, as the original recipe said, and they were perfect.
