Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
While I will try adding sour cream to my banana bread in the future, I won't be utilizing this recipe again. For me, there just was not enough banana flavor, instead there was a lot of sweetness from the amount of sugar. Additionally, the bread was more of a cake consistency rather than being dense like you would expect from a quick bread. I have my own recipe for banana that has never failed but decided to try this one to break out of my routine a little bit. Just wasn't for me...

Elizabeth Dole's Pecan Roll Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
I made these for my mom and I to enjoy...we love anything with a nut in them. I felt like the dough was a little flat, like something was missing, so the next time I make them I will try adding some almond extract in addition to the vanilla.

Caramels

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
This recipe worked out flawlessly for me and it was my first time making caramels as well. I dipped them in chocolate and they held up great. It did take a while to reach 250F but well worth the wait. I well definitely be making these again.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Delicious. Replaced the crumb topping with just chopped walnuts. Resulted in the prettiest little muffins I think I have ever made. Thanks for a great recipe Lisa.

The Best Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Perfect chicken fried steak. For me personally, it could use a little more salt/seasoning in both the batter and the flour. I just fried mine up in vegetable oil rather than shortening and it came out flawless. Thanks for a perfect 5-star recipe Norah.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
Very tasty foundation beef for Mexican dishes. However, next time I would really cut back on any liquid as chuck roasts are great moisture makers on their own. The family really enjoyed this meal which I just served on toasted tortillas with pico de gallo, but I could also see using it in tamales. Thanks for sharing Charley:)

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I really need to work on my biscuit making skills. It’s something that I have wanted to master for some time. These were a good place to start and certainly easy enough to whip together for a novice. My batch came out as expected, better than canned but not quite grandma good. I used butter flavored shortening but will try butter next time just to compare the differences. Family liked them with the sausage corn chowder from this site…Thanks J.P.

Sausage Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I made this for supper tonight and it was a hit. I made two changes: 1) I used 3 cups of 2% milk in place of the water and evaporated milk and 2) instead of raw potatoes; I used steam and mash potatoes that I microwaved on high for almost 12 minutes until they were fully cooked and then added them to the soup. This step really cuts down on prep work/cook time. With those two changes this soup was delectable and satisfying and will be made again. Thanks for sharing Sue.

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
One suggestion that I would make to others is to use a sirloin tip roast rather than a chuck roast, making sure to give it plenty of time to slow cook. Using a sirloin tip roast eliminates all the fat and gristle that is common with a chuck roast, while still being a juicy and delicious piece of meat. As for the recipe, I’ve had better Italian beef in my day. While it was palatable, it was also little on the salty side when made as written. Next time I would add some dried herbs (oregano, Italian seasoning, etc) and back off of the dressing mixes by at least one packet if not two. Loved the peppers though!

Apple Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
Ok so this was deliciously different. We ate the entire first loaf before it even cooled down. Did I mention there were only three of us? I made the recipe as written except adding 1/2 cup of heavy cream at the end, this helps to smooth things out. I do it with most of my quick breads. My family has already decided that it shall have a place on the munchies’ table at Thanksgiving. Next time I make this I will take others advice using part white sugar and part brown. I will also include apple sauce, not to replace the oil, just in addition to it. Thanks for a great recipe and a new tradition Phyllis!

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Usually the first time that I make a recipe I follow it as closely as possible. These were an exception which I decided to change to a mexican style dish. I seasoned the meat with a taco seasoning packet, used enchilada sauce instead of tomato soup and used diced mexican style tomatoes. I also followed other’s suggestions and put some of the sauce half way in the pepper, which helped to keep things moist. I then topped the peppers with more cheese and baked uncovered for 30 mins. The only change I will make next time is to use 1 cup of pre-cooked rice or use instant instead of long grain to speed things along. Great meal that I will use often, Thanks Suzanne

World's Best Pasta Sauce!

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
Bravo John, Bravo! I made this for dinner tonight and can’t get over how delicious it is. I did however change a few things: 1) I used sweet sausage but crumbled it up instead of slicing it not a big difference 2) Instead of water I used ¼ cup of strong red wine and ¼ cup of chicken stock. I’m glad I make this change because the wine faded nicely into the background of the dish but added depth to it. 3) Instead of ground beef I used high quality frozen meatballs which my family likes. And 4) I used my slow cooker and simmered on low for about 6 hours, allowing all the dried herbs time to season properly. I love this sauce and while I love the convenience of jarred sauces, they all fall short of the flavor of this one. Thank you for a truly great recipe…Bravo!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
Sometimes with cookies, I can fall into a serious rut (chocolate chip, oatmeal, and peanut butter, repeat!) and these were just the change that I needed to kick me out of my current one. I made the recipe as written and do agree that more coconut is needed and I might even add some coconut extract next time also. Additionally, I will try toasting my coconut as well because the only thing better than coconut is toasted coconut! Oh my, I can’t wait till the next time I make these. Thanks for the great recipe.

Gooey Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
I'm not sure why I didn't think about the fact that these would end up tasting like cake mix, but I didn't. Nonetheless, they were very good. So good that I couldn't stop eating them. I used a dark chocolate cake mix and it filled the chocolate craving I was attacked with. Next time I think I will add some chocolate chips and walnuts just to add some defferent texture.

Sweet As Kisses Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
Oh the menagerie of desserts you can create with cream cheese and cool whip! It never fails to amaze me the different dishes you can get out of the same basic ingredients. This creation was very good and incredibly easy to make. Next time, I will use the full can of cherry pie filling for a stronger cherry taste; I felt it was lacking a bit with just one cup. Other than that it was straightforward perfection…

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
Before my family finished their first serving of this, they were asking me to make it again! Next time however, I will skip the ground beef and use Italian sausage instead, add more cheese to the center of the dish as others have suggested, and make my own pizza sauce (store bought is too expensive for me). I will also add some of our favorite toppings and change the egg noodles to rotini. Great family meal, will be using again and again.

Summertime Strawberry Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
This was really good. Will definitely be making it again this season. I skipped the tea and use sprite instead of ginger ale and it turned out great.
