Fluffy White Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
OMG! This is heavenly! Boiled the sugar-water-cream of tartar mixture for exactly 7 minutes as one reviewer suggested, mixed it in with the egg whites, let my KA do its magic for 7 more minutes and voila! Magical frosting that holds its shape perfectly and tastes like a piece of heaven. Thanks for the recipe! I will be using this over, and over, and over again!

Sour Cream Ganache

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
Awesome!!!!!! I had no issues whatsoever with the sour cream overpowering the chocolate. It must be a matter of personal taste. I found this ganache great tasting and super easy to make, with things you are more likely to have in your pantry/fridge. Thank you for posting such a great recipe!

Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
Super yummy! I made this several times and many of these times I didn't have all the ingredients ready: one time I skipped the corn, other times I put double qty of mushrooms because I had to use them, another time I used tomato paste instead of fresh tomatoes... Sometimes fresh, other times all frozen ingredients, it came out great every single time. It became a regular in our home. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.

Vegetable Dill Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Such a good dip! Perfect! Did not make any changes to the recipe. Served it with carrot and celery sticks. My guests raved about it.

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Ever since the beginning of October, when I found this recipe and tried it, I made these rolls at least 6-7 times (and it's not even Christmas yet!). It is absolutely perfect, in every way! Our family and friends loved it! I followed the recipe to a T and never had any issues with it! To prevent the oozing out cream problem, I stick it in the fridge for a good amount of time before putting in on the roll and I avoid spreading it all the way to the edge. It still comes out a bit, but in manageable quantities, most of it staying in and looking and tasting awesomely!

Best Ever Chocolate Cutout Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Awesome cookies! They taste just like brownies, but they look so very pretty! These will become a staple in our home from now on! Everybody loved them! How did we do it: we added vanilla and cinnamon, as other reviewers suggested and rolled them just a bit thicker. They didn't break as long as they stayed flat. They are fragile though, not hard as the white sugar cookies I have tried so far, but who cares?.... They disappear so very quickly, nobody notices the head of the snowman broke of... No crumbling though, whatsoever! I don't know why other reviewers had that problem. Ours came out perfect! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Oreo™ Cookie Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Although it was very pretty sitting on the table, this Oreo bark was waaaaaay to sweet, even for a sweet tooth like me. My kids gobbled it in 2 days, but for two days straight they were on a very high level sugar rush... I couldn't eat more then one piece during the same amount of time... Try only if you like excessively sweet deserts.

Chunky Monkey Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Awesome pancakes! You don't need to change a thing! They come out flavorful, fluffy and they are pretty filling. We had two each, with a few scoops of whipped cream and golden syrup and it was too much! This recipe is perfect and it is definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
This recipe truly deserves more then 5 stars! It is perfect! I couldn't believe just how great this came out -- an egg-less ice cream that is easy to make, creamy, silky, chocolaty and oh, so delicious!! The base is perfect for tons of variations of toppings. I will definitely try the vanilla version next, by simply omitting the cocoa powder.

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Awesome base recipe! I added 2 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 Tbsp. flour and substituted cane syrup for the corn syrup. It came out wonderful! I guess the pecan pies they used to make in the good old days didn't have all the flavorings we have grown so accustomed to nowadays, so the recipe is correct, but it needs some tweaking according to everybody's taste and preference. Note: I didn't use the crust recipe noted here, so I have no idea how that comes out -- I have my own crust recipe and only use that when I make my pies.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
I kinda liked them, but nobody in my family really cared for them. I am glad I tried the recipe before making them for company. We are used to having deviled eggs with the liver/mayo/mustard and spices filling and we found this recipe does not come anywhere close to the yummy taste of our regular recipe. The bacon/cheddar version tasted a bit too heavy/fatty and the bacon taste was too strong... We like them lighter and a bit more flavor adjusted -- But I guess it's a matter of taste... so... I'll just stick to my own recipe for now.

Addictive Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
Very, very yummy! My family absolutely loved it! I made a few changes: 1. I substituted sherry for dry white wine in the chicken marinade. 2. I coated the pieces with cornstarch before dumping them in the marinade, and so I ended up with a crispier chicken 3. I coated half of the marinated chicken pieces with sesame seeds before frying and therefore did not add any sesame seeds to the sauce. 4. I substituted distilled vinegar for 1/8 cup white rice vinegar and 1/8 cup dark rice vinegar in the sauce. 5. I did not have the red chili paste, so I used 1/4 tsp. red chili flakes. 6. I only used 2/3 cup of (brown!) sugar in the sauce and it was perfect! There was plenty of sauce to keep as a dip for spring rolls (made from scratch) and dumped the rest over the chicken. I did not have the same trouble as other reviewers with chicken pieces getting soggy. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for posting!

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
Great recipe! Tried it today and it was perfect! I dried the hot dogs with paper towel while the batter was in the freezer chilling (it only took a few minutes). It stuck to the dogs without any problems and it stayed on perfectly during frying (I didn't coat them in flour or corn starch like other reviewers suggested). The corn dogs looked and tasted super yummy. My family gobbled the whole batch up within minutes. Thank you for posting this recipe!

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I loved this flan!!! I was disappointed that only my daughter loved this, but boys are quirky anyways when it comes to sweets, so I tried to not care too much. I followed the recipe to a T, did not make any changes and the result was total yummy creamy caramel flan perfection. If you like flan, you will love this!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
An excellent recipe! Made no changes, followed the simple directions and got jarfuls of yummy fresh, homemade applesauce. I don't think apple sauce can get better than that!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Perfect basic pie. We love it! Next time I make it I will definitely up the spices - I found it slightly too bland for my taste - I love my pies flavorful. No change otherwise. As for the crust, I used a really good, foolproof pie/tart crust recipe: Rustic Autumn Fruit Tart, also found on this site. Both these will be on all my festive dinner tables for years to come.

Roll-Out Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Good cookie but I found the lemon flavor a bit too overpowering for my taste. I will definitely try this recipe again, skipping the lemon and maybe replacing it with orange flavor... Otherwise, the dough was easy to work with, it was easy to cut and held its shape nicely.

Caramel Apple Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
We did not care for this much. The caramels melted into a soupy syrup, so the dip came out very runny and cream-cheesy tasting. I melted 10 more caramels (without adding any water) and mixed those in, but the taste was still a bit off, while the consistency didn't change much. I don't know if the caramels were the cause.... We ate a bit and tossed the rest... I went on to try a peanut butter version and liked that one better. Still looking for a good caramel apple dip recipe, though...

Julia's Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies In A Jar

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Outstanding cookies and super easy to make! After trying a few "cookie in a jar" recipes, I can pretty much say these were the best looking and tasting cookies that came out of those jars! I did use 2 eggs and upped the flour to 2 cups to compensate. Perfection! This will be my one and only chocolate chip cookie recipe, with or without the jar! Thank you, Julia!

Cowboy Cookie Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
The jar looked great and the layers - with their different colors and textures - make for a very nice presentation. However, the cookie was very average and had way to many oats for my taste. Looking for a better cookie in a jar recipe that I could offer as a gift this coming Christmas, I tried Julia's Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies In A Jar (also found on this site). Julia's cookies tasted heavenly! The look of the jar is not as pretty as this one, but hey... who cares about the jar? It's the cookie that matters! So... if you are just after a pretty looking cookie in a jar recipe, this is it -- but if you want an outstanding cookie, try Julia's.
