Whipping Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
It was more like a regular cake than a pound cake and lacked flavor. This was not what I was looking for. However, when made with flour minus 1 TBSP per cup and an additional 1 tsp of vanilla and ½ tsp of almond ... it makes a wonderful 5 star pound cake.

Overnight Raisin Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
A hearty pancake. Very good and different. I used rolled oats (that's what I had on hand). Will definitely make again. May add more cinnamon next time.

Buttermilk Pancakes I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
Very light and fluffy. I made them into silver dollar pancakes. I poured the batter into a squirt bottle, enlarged the hole in the bottle, and squeezed dollops of batter onto the pan.

Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
This is the whipped cream recipe I use all the time. Sometimes I add a little more confectioners' sugar.

Old Bay® Catfish Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2003
I didn't have all the correct ingredients and used what I had on hand ... tilapia for catfish and bread crumbs for the cornmeal. I substituted garlic powder for garlic salt (as suggested by a reviewer to cut the saltiness) and added a dash of ground (cayenne) red pepper (as suggested by reviewers). I melted some cheese on top, placed on a slightly toasted bread with lettuce, tomato, bacon and tartar sauce ... and made a fish club. It was easy and delicious!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2003
I made 1 ½ recipes to accommodate the number of guests. Mixed the ketchup and brown sugar together. Blended the remaining ingredients in my Kitchenaid mixer to avoid getting my hands dirty. Used bread crumbs vs crushed saltine cracker crumbs because it was what I had on hand. Added a bit of prepared minced garlic from a jar. Placed it in a greased 12 x 9 inch pan, shaped it into 2 mounds and topped with ketchup and brown sugar mixture (as suggested by other reviewers). It’s easy to prepare and delicious. Everyone loved it. One guest had 3 helpings! It's different from other meatloafs in that it’s a little sweet. If it’s too sweet for your taste … just adjust the amount of brown sugar you use.

Chicken With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2003
I used 3 (4oz) cans of mushrooms because it was what I had on hand. Added cream of mushroom (as suggested by others) to the broth. Topped it with the mozzarella cheese during the last 10 minutes of cooking rather than at the beginning. I like to see the melted cheese. Served it over rice. My sister and brother-in-law loved it. My brother-in-law even had seconds. Next time I will make more sauce ... it's great over rice!

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2003
I had regular carrots so I used those vs baby carrots. I used 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (as others suggested) and used butter vs margarine. My brother-in-law liked it and he doesn't eat vegetables much. My sister didn't care for it ... too sweet for her. It was easy to make and good but a bit on the sweet side. Reminded me of candied yams or sweet potatoes.

Cajun Appetizer Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2003
I used raspberry vs peach preserves, it was what I had on hand. I’m not a meatball fan to begin with, but it was easy and good as far as meatballs go. It stands out from other meatballs because of the extra little kick you get from the hot pepper sauce and Cajun seasoning.

Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2003
This is a wonderfully light and fluffy frosting. It’s not too sweet. It’s like a whipped cream frosting with a hint of cream cheese or an extremely light and airy version of a cream cheese frosting. It's easy to make. I’ve received several compliments and requests for this recipe.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2002
This recipe cut nicely and retained it's shape as long as the dough was chilled. I floured and rolled it between wax paper so as not to reflour and over flour. I reused the leftover dough but placed it in the freezer for a few minutes before rolling it out again. I used vanilla extract as suggested but may try lemon and/or almond extract next time. This cookie was good but not amazing tasting. Not real sweet. It made a thick and soft cookie and was easy to make ... for that I'll give it a 5. I decorated this cookie with the Sugar Cookie Icing submitted by Janice Brubaker. This made a very professional looking cookie.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2002
It's easy and makes for a nice professional shiny and smooth finish. It's a very sweet icing but aren't they all? I did have to add a bit more milk and corn syrup to make it into a spreadable consistancy. Make sure you don't add too much of either ... otherwise it gets too runny. I used the almond extract as suggested but have also substituted it with clear vanilla and lemon extract. I think any extract will work. It takes a few of hours to harden and is stackable after that. I used a thin layer of this icing with the Best Rolled Sugar Cookies Recipe. This made a thick professional looking cookie.

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2002
Good Stuff! And easy too! I didn't have cloves of garlic on hand so I used chopped garlic from a jar ... yum and it cut some time off of the prep time.

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2001
I used a ready-made pie crust, which made an easy recipe even easier. Apples were runny so after slicing the first piece, I poured the extra juices out and no one was the wiser. May add cornstarch or flour to apples next time. Everyone loved the pie especially the topping! Great warm with vanilla ice cream ... YUM! Be sure to refrigerate the leftovers ... if there are any! Otherwise the topping will become soggy.
