Cinnamon Syrup

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
Amazing! So much better than store bought syrup and no high fructose corn syrup. I let it cool and put it in an old syrup bottle. It does not need to be refrigerated - another plus over other homemade recipes I've tried.

Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
Wow! I finally got my 5 year old to like something with spinach in it!! (Just in time to start picking some from the garden!) I didn't add the cheddar as I was out and next time, I think I'll try this with 1/2 the butter and 1/2 the sour cream (without baking) just to make it healthier, but for a once-in-awhile decadent side dish, make it as is!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
I made this according to the recipe and it wasn't great. WAY too much water! If I make it again, I would put in only 1/3 the amount of water but would use broth. As others noted, it is very bland as written. I wound up putting in more chicken seasoning and a few dashes of curry and bouillion (since I had used water). I guess it's a starting point, but it needs quite a bit of work, so as is, definitely not more than a 3-star recipe.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Not terrible, but I just didn't think it was very good. Neither my husband nor I finished our chicken...

Pineapple Ricotta Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
For me this was just ok. I get where its going, but mine were pretty dry and crumbly after spending 21 min in the oven. I would suggest either not draining the pineapple (as the batter was unusually thick) or reducing the baking time to 15-20 min.

New Wife Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
Great Tuna Salad! We like this a bit sweeter so I also added a 1 tbsp of sugar. May sound funny but give it a try! Thanks for a great recipe!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
It is somewhat soupy - definitely needs less salad dressing/mayo or more tuna. And wow! That is just way too much dried green herbs! Green tuna salad? It looked like some kind of St. Patrick's Day version of tuna salad. Sorry but I can't figure out what other people like about this... Off to try another recipe.

Ten Clove Garlic Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Delicious! Though based on the recommendations of others, I did halve the oil. I'm not sure what difference the extra oil would have made, though having some is good in that it greases the grill. I will probably try this again with an even smaller amount of oil.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This was so much easier than I thought! I wish I had made it long ago! I did take the advice of others and mixed the filling together before spreading it on and I do think this worked well. It was easy to get on and I didn't have oozing out problems at all. I did double the cream cheese frosting - this was probably a bit too much, but if you like frosting, you'll probably want a bit more than the recipe calls for.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I'm not a big fan of banana pudding, but I have to say that this is a great recipe. My husband loves it and in the 13 years we've been together, I've never made it for him. I decided to do it for Father's Day, hoping I didn't mess up a recipe I've never made. Turned out to be VERY easy and he thought it was great! It set up very nicely making a very pretty dessert. Thanks for the recipe!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
Topped with a whole lot of chocolate glaze and made for my husband and father's birthdays. For those guys, there is no such thing as too much chocolate! And I have to agree, it was delicious!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
Wonderful rich, moist cake. I left out the coconut as my husband doesn't like it, and topped with cream cheese frosting (whip together 8oz cream cheese, 1/2 tbsp vanilla, 1 stick butter, & 3 cups powdered sugar) and baked in a 9x13 pan for 45 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe!

Reviewed: May 7, 2009

Perfect Apple Pie

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
Perfect - just like the name says! I know there has been some debate about what apples to use, and I love things sweet, but I used Granny Smith and thought it was excellent. Very straightforward, not runny - which I always seem to have a problem with... Thanks for a great recipe!

Mendi's Favorite Orzo

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I love orzo, but to date, I hadn't found an orzo recipe that my boys (husband included) liked. Everyone gobbled this one up! Thanks for a great inexpensive and easy recipe!

Cinnamon Bread Delight

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I'm not sure what happened here, but I suspect that an 8x4 pan may be the problem, mine wound up overcooked (taken out at 65 min) except that the middle was still so undercooked that the center of the top actually collapsed. I also wasn't very impressed with the flavor. Not inedible, but I won't be making this again.

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
For me, these were just ok. They tasted good but not great and didn't look very nice. I filled the muffin cups to about 2/3 or 3/4 full and I still got very small muffins, that weren't nice and plump and round. And lets face it - these aren't cupcakes. I did chop the apple as other recommended but honestly, I could see it being good shredded also. With so many good recipes out there, I'm not planning on making this one again.
