Potato Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
I made the recipe as directed, but I had to mix the ingredients with a spatula during the first few minutes in the bread machine because the flour was just sitting on top, probably because of the potato mixture. I wasn't sure when to add the potato mixture, so I added it after the wet ingredients. I only had to let it rise 45 minutes in a warm oven. Wonderful texture and flavor, and not too sweet. It smelled so good while baking, that I couldn't wait for it to cool to have some, so I ate a piece warm with butter on it. Delicious! Tastes a lot like Hawaiian bread.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
I made a double recipe because I wanted a 9-inch layer cake. I'm a very experienced baker, and I found this cake to be heavy and dry. My husband commented that it was like a pound cake...I think he was being kind. Maybe using cake flour instead of all-purpose flour would have helped. In the future, I'm going to stick with my trusted Bonnie Butter Cake recipe for white cake. It's moist, light and delicious.

Mom's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
This is the first time I ever made homemade mac and cheese, and it was a hit. I was lucky to get a small taste, because my husband and son polished off the rest in no time. It was very creamy and cheesy. I used 1-1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese and no processed cheese, and I increased the amount of bread crumb/butter on top. Delicious! I'm sure I'll make this again.

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Excellent! I melted the chocolate and butter together in the microwave on a reduced power, and it worked out well. I also added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to the cream cheese mixture. The only other change I would make would be to use mini semisweet chocolate chips in the cream cheese filling. I served my husband a piece, and he served himself another piece later. For my husband to actually get up from his Lazyboy and cut himself a piece proves he really must have loved them....LOL. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Fruit Cocktail Cake VII

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
My mom used to make a cake similar to this. I don't have her recipe, but this tastes very similar to what I remember. I added 1/2 tsp. salt to the dry ingredients and sprinkled about 1/4 cup chopped pecans on top after pouring on the topping. It was done in 25 minutes. Very good, moist cake. The texture is more like bread pudding than cake. My family liked it.

Muffuletta Pinwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Fantastic recipe! I cut the recipe in half, using 3 tortillas and one 8-oz. cream cheese, but I used almost 1/4 pound each of the meats and cheeses and about 3/4 of a 16-oz. jar of store-bought muffuletta salad (olive salad). Like I always do when making pinwheels, I cut the rounded edges off the tortillas to make them square before I spread on the cream cheese so there's less waste. These were very quick and easy to make and tasted great....a lot like a muffuletta sandwich, but less filling. My guests loved them.

Easy Cardamom Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I made the dough in my bread machine, but formed and baked it as directed. The dough came out great; easy to work with, nice texture, and good taste. I spread on the full 1/2 cup butter, but I agree w/a previous reviewer that it's way too much. 1/4 cup butter would be more than enough. Also, although I really like cardamom, I found it very overpowering to the point of making the bread bitter. I would cut way back on the cardamom also.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
The batter was very soft, which made the cookies a little difficult to form. I was afraid they wouldn't bake well, but they actually did. They spread out and puffed up quite a bit in the oven, but cooled nice and flat. They were easy to sandwich together and tasted a lot like Girl Scout cookies, but fresher. Good recipe!

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
I'm glad I only made half a batch. Very quick and easy to make, but my family didn't care for them too much. I used semisweet chocolate chips, as directed. Maybe milk chocolate or white chips would have been better. I think it would have been a good idea to add raisins to make them a little sweeter. I won't be making these again, since they've been sitting on the table for a few days and no one is eating them.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I'd give this only 2-1/2 stars if I could. My husband and I thought it was more like a layered dip than a meal. On the positive side, it looked very pretty and was easy to make, but it needed more seasoning, and I didn't care for the chips on the bottom. Mexican lasagne recipes are similar, but much better. I won't make this again.

Monster Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I made half a recipe as directed, but I added 1/2 teaspoon salt. I rolled the dough in a ball and flattened slightly before baking. I had to bake them 14-15 minutes. They came out great; not overly sweet and nice crunchy texture.

Hamburger Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
I used frozen peas, increased the potatoes and carrots a little, used 3 cups beef broth instead of 1-1/4 cup water, and added 1 tsp. chopped garlic, 1 bay leaf and 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce. Very easy to make and delicious!

Strawberry Pina Colada Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
I made this recipe because I had all the ingredients on hand, but I was very disappointed in it. I added about 1/2 cup coconut to the filling, along with some rum extract and coconut extract (using coconut pudding instead of vanilla, as other reveiwers suggested, is a good idea), but it STILL didn't taste like a pina colada. The pie was just OK. I won't be making it again.

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
Great recipe! I substituted 3 Tbs. molasses for the corn syrup, as others suggested. They didn't plump up as much as some cookies do, so you have to roll the dough a little thicker if you want a thicker cookie. Also, they spread out quite a bit, so you have to allow extra space between the cookies when you place them on the pan. This will be my go-to gingerbread cookie recipe from now on. Thank you!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I doubled the recipe, which made 11 jumbo muffins. I agree with other reviewers that the proportion of topping is too much. I only doubled the batter ingredients and not the topping ingredients, and I had over 2 tablespoons of topping per muffin, which was plenty. I used frozen blueberries, which I tossed with a little flour, and they came out great. The blueberries didn't sink to the bottom. I had to bake them 31 minutes, but that might be because of the frozen blueberries. The muffins were moist and delicious and had a sweet, crunchy top. They tasted even better after sitting a few hours and the next day.

Creole Cornbread Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This recipe is a bit of work, but worth it. I made only half a recipe. I baked the cornbread (in an 8-inch square pan), mixed the spices together, and chopped the veggies the day before, which saved a lot of time on Thanksgiving. I used less cayenne pepper and didn't add the tabasco sauce or green chile pepper, and it was spicy enough. I didn't stuff my turkey. I baked it in a greased 9x13-inch pan uncovered for 1 hour at 350 degrees, stirring halfway through. (I like my stuffing dry and a bit crunchy.) Very tasty and even better served with gravy on top.

Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
These were moist and delicious. I increased the recipe to 18 servings, which made 14 jumbo muffins. The nutmeg flavor was a very good complement to the cranberries and wasn't overpowering. The next time I make these, I'll try adding orange zest, as other reviewers suggested, because I love the combination of cranberry and orange. This recipe is a keeper!!

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Ignore all negative reviews; this is a great recipe. Very quick and easy and tastes delicious. I added 1/2 tsp. black pepper, 1/4 cup chives, and a dash of Louisiana hot sauce. The chives floated to the top, which made the quiche look more colorful and appetizing. I baked it 40 minutes and it was perfectly done. I will definitely make this again.

Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
I made half a recipe using one bag of Orville Redenbacher microwave popcorn. It was very easy to make and came out great. I sprayed my hands with Pam before forming the balls. Be sure to pick out all the unpopped kernels before you add the syrup mixture. Good, fun recipe!

Pull-Apart Easter Blossom Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Fantastic recipe and much easier to make than it looks! I've made this 3 times and I've come up with some steps that make it even easier: 1) I cut the recipe in half and make the dough in my bread machine; 2) I place the dough on the parchment-lined pizza pan after I roll it into a circle and cut and form it right on the pan; 3) I use kitchen scissors instead of a knife to cut the dough into strips; 4) After I form the center petal, I twist all the remaining strips first, then form them into petals one after another. Also, I didn't care for the lemon glaze, so I use a simple vanilla glaze recipe. If you're confused on how to cut and form the petals, check out the photos of the recipe. They're very helpful. I LOVE THIS RECIPE!
