German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
These were fabulous and easy! This was my first time making potato pancakes, as I always thought they'd be more time-consuming. Well, they were time-consuming, but they were easy and delicious! Thank you for the recipe.

Pineapple Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
This was a terrific base. I used chicken instead of hame (since that's what I had), and frozen peas and carrots. I also used fresh pineapple, as the local Asian market had them on sale for $1.00 each. Delicious!

Baked Oatmeal Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
We loved these- my 2 year old just ate 1/4 of the pan, as did my DH, who has always said he hates oatmeal! He even knew it was in there! The only things I changed was to add a finely chopped apple, increase cinnamon to 1 teaspoon, and cut the sugar to 1/3 cup. Wonderful- they're going into our breakfast rotation once a week!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
This was terrific, but I changed a few things. First, I cut the sugar in both the filling and the topping by half. I think next time I'll cut it down to 1/3 cup in each, depending on the type of apples I use. If I'm using sweeter apples again I'll also add 1 T. of lemon juice. I doubled the cinnamon (at least), since we all love cinnamon. Next time I think I'll add some nutmeg. I also cut out the baking soda, and didn't melt the butter. Instead I cut the butter into the oat/flour mixture. Oh, and I put 1 t. cinnamon into the topping. My family loved it!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
If you don't have marshmallow creme, don't despair. I found that it was just too darn expensive, so I bought mini marshmallows. I combined the sugar, , milk, butter, and salt and brought it to a full rolling boil, and boiled it the full five minutes. I turned the heat down and added 7 oz. of marshmallows, stirred until they melted, and added the chocolate chips and vanilla (DH doesn't like nuts) and beat it very well. It turned out very smooth and creamy and delicious- and cheaper than with the marshmallow creme!

Raspberry Ribbons

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
We've been making these for years, but we call them "Split Seconds". The only difference is that instead of vanilla we use almond extract, which in my opinion tastes better. Of course, that's how I've always had them! Oh, yeah, as far as them falling apart easily what we do is butter the baking sheet really well before putting the dough on, and allow the cookies to cool for a good 5 minutes before cutting them on the cookie sheet, then transferring them to the cooling rack.

Little Girl Pies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
These are great! The name caught my eye because I have two girls who love raisins and love cookies. I must confess that I changed a few things in the recipe. I cut the sugar in the filling by 2 tablespoons, and might cut it by 1/4 cup next time. I also added 1/4 t. of fresh lemon zest and about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Oh, and I brushed them with an egg wash prior to baking, which gave them a nice shiny brown look. I cut the centers out with a (washed) tiny, star-shaped playdough cutter. Very pretty. Next time I think I'll try them with craisins. *Edit* I forgot to mention that I ground the filling up in the food processor, so as to not worry about texture issues.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
This is great! I used honey instead of brown sugar, and canola oil instead of margarine. Very soft and fluffy inside, with a terrific crust. Yum!

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
I just made these for the second time in a few days. They're wonderful, tasty and moist! I may add another apple to make it even more moist and "appley". Thank you for such an easy, tasty recipe.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
These are the fluffiest pancakes I've ever made! I made them exactly as directed, except I sifted the flour mixture twice and vanilla in the egg mixture, and was pleasantly surprised to find that there wasn't a "baking powder taste" to them at all. Next time I'll try it with white whole wheat flour, and maybe add some ground flax seeds.

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
These were tasty and juicy, but a little mushy in the middle. I added extra garlic (as I always do) and a little soy sauce.

Yeast Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I thought these were quite tasty. One thing I liked about them is that you don't have to be as picky about mixing as with regular pancakes- so I let my 5-year-old do the mixing without worrying about it! BTW- if they hadn't turned out I would have assumed I had done something different, not that the rest of the reviewers made another recipe. I'm a very good cook, but don't think I'm infallible. Sheesh, some people's egos...

Snow Flake Cocoa

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
I made this for a brunch I hosted yesterday as a way of using up the white chocolate chips I'd bought for drizzling cookies at Christmas. It was okay, but way too sweet, even for my husband who loves white chocolate. We also didn't like the layer of fat that came to the top, but I was able to skim it off after it had been in the refrigerator overnight. I ended up using it as the milk/sweetener for the (unsweetened) chai latte concentrate, and it worked well for that. Overall not something I'd make again, as I can find much healthier ways of sweetening my chai latte!

Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2012
My fried chicken is usually pretty dull, but this was perfect! I didn't make the gravy, just because I didn't have time since I got dinner started late, but the chicken was delicious! I did change a few things. First, I used half flour and half cornstarch, based on other recipes I read. Next, I didn't use poultry seasoning, since I didn't have any, but did use ground fresh sage. I didn't use as much pepper, as I was feeding it to our children. Oh, my oldest thought it would be a great way to make chicken nuggets- which she won't usually eat. Thank you, Gina!

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
I made these, but left out the flour, because it seemed like a lot of coating for the amount of tomatoes. I also added some garlic powder and cayenne. They were delicious!

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
Okay, so I know mysterman was joking to make a point, but I have to say that I didn't have shortening or margarine or butter...but I did have bacon fat- so I used that (inspired by him :D). I also try to avoid using processed sugar, so I used molasses. I did, however, use flour and yeast. Yes, the dough was very sticky, but I just spooned it into greased muffin tins and baked for 8 minutes (I made 12 rolls). They were wonderful!

Cinnabun Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
Wonderful idea for cookies! One suggestion I have is to measure the flour using the "scoop & sweep" method. When I do this I fluff the flour a bit, use the measuring cup to scoop it up, then sweep off the excess with the back of a knife. This time I sifted other flour into the meas during cup with a spoon, then swept it off. The cookies, while delicious, are very buttery and flat.
