Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2004
"this is the best banana bread you have ever made" said my husband. i have to agree - this was amazing and so easy. the only thing i did different was to roast the walnuts before adding to the batter. i do have to add a #6 to the tips list - do not make right after having the flu and barely eating for 5 days - yep - that was me - my family doesn't know that this recipe made 2 loaves!!

Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2004
FANTASTIC!!! didn't change a thing. we were having company for dinner so i made this in the morning for our dessert that night. everyone raved. we ate as much as we could and had some leftover. i was afraid to have it around (iknow i would have eaten the rest in one sitting) so the next day i sent it with my husband to take to his office. he said that his staff devoured it by l0:00a.m. a sure keeper!!

i was just taking the last sheet out of the oven when my 6 year old grandson walked in. he wanted to taste a cookie. he took two bites, his eyes light-up and he told me these cookies were "AWESOME" (he wanted 6 more!) later that night my husband agreeded. the only thing i did differently was to add 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips.

Charline's Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
FANTASTIC!! out of necessity, i had to prepare this ahead of time, i made the sweet potato mixture and refrigerated it. i also made and refrigerated the topping mixture. when i was ready to bake the casserole, i had to break-up the topping and sprinkle it over the sweet potatoes. the result was a very crunchy topping - totally amazing!! will only use this recipe when making a sweet potato casserole. thanks diana - you hit the jackpot with this one!!!

Pecan Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2005
the only reason i rated theses only 4 stars was because T's mom wrote that we could line the muffin pans with paper muffin liners - i did and it was a real problem to remove the paper. what little muffin we could scrape off the paper was really delish. i'll try these again but will grease and flour the pans really well.

Quick Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
WONDERFUL!! i usually don't freeze breads, but because this recipe made two breads i froze the one we didn't eat. when i defrosted the second to eat at a later date i was amazed at the great taste - almost better than eating the first day it was made! next time i plan on serving this bread i'll make it a day ahead.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
GREAT!! only thing i did differently was to put a thin layer of the bread crumb mixture on the bottom of the baking dish before i put the chicken in. (just to keep the bottom of the chicken from getting soggy) worked great!

Nutty Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
WONDERFUL! i did two things differently - one was to add more almonds. (the lT of butter was enough to accomodate another l/4 cup of almonds), and i added sugar to the butter. gave the almonds a caramelized taste.

Momma's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2005
my husband and i loved this! does not serve 6 - the two of us finished the whole batch. the directions should have said to reduce the heat to simmer after adding the meat - then continue to stir for 30 minutes -thats what i did and it was wonderful. p.s. - i used ground sirloin.

Baked Orange Roughy Italian-Style

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006
this is so good! next time i make it i will cut back on the salt. the cheeses have enough salt in them so that unless you are crazy for salty food you might want to cut back the first time you make this.
