Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2015
These cookies are excellent. Don't believe the reviews that say they didn't come good, or they're too dry or too wet going on the pan. I have cooked for a long time and these are the best peanut butter cookies ever. Use real butter, creamy peanut butter, not the all natural kind, measure the flour correctly and put in all of the ingredients. I don't see how they could fail. Yes, they are sweet, that's the whole point of making cookies! I'll double the cookie recipe next time without doubling the filling. You have to cut back on calories somewhere, and I suppose that's an easy way of doing it. :)

Chocolate Cherry Cake III

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
Everyone I have ever made this for loves this cake. I prefer to use a regular chocolate or fudge chocolate cake mix instead of the devils food mix though. I microwave the chocolate chips for the frosting/ganache for 1 minute to make it easier to mix them in.

Layered Fiesta Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
My husband said it was ok but he'll eat anything. I didn't care for it. It was very bland and the flour tortillas were mushy. If I were to make it again I would add some chopped chili peppers and try corn tortillas.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
This is much better than the mushroom soup recipe. I've made it twice and both times were asked for the recipe. I do prefer it with 1 cup of cheese mixed in with the beans and 1 cup on top. I also cook the onions in butter before adding it. For a smaller family it also works with just 2 cans of French style green beans, instead of 3.

Chocolate Malted Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
This recipe is very good if you double the chocolate malt powder. Otherwise there will not be enough chocolate flavor. I didn't have enough whipping cream so I used half light cream. I can stop looking for a good chocolate ice cream recipe now. My husband liked the crushed milk balls added in but I didn't.

Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
This does not taste quite the same as the real thing but close enough. If they are dry and crumbly you added too much flour. The right way to measure it is to fluff it up with a spoon and use that spoon to fill the cup. Never dip a cup into the flour and then tap it to add more. That is too much. If you really want to know how much more you're adding weigh it sometime. 1 cup of all purpose flour should weigh about 4.5 oz. Other kinds of flour are different. Also adding bit of salt to this recipe is a good idea.

Quick Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
My husband liked this very much. I did have to add a small can of tomato sauce to give it a bit more juice. I liked the flavors overall even though I'm not a big fan of smoked sausage. The next time I make it I'll add more shrimp and maybe chicken. It's more like 4 1/2 stars.

Dutch Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I agree with lawavediva who said this is way too tart. I have been baking for almost 50 years and know most people like a sweet apple pie. I would also use brown sugar for the topping. There are better recipes out there.

Blue Cheese Bites

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I made these for the family yesterday with one change. After seeing recipes like it in other blogs and sites I only used 1/4 cup of butter. That was just right. They went like hotcakes.

Aunt Hazel's Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
They are moist but the oats are too too heavy and chewy. The flavor is not as good as I hoped even with the raisins I added. I'm not going to make them again.

Ham and Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
After making it the way it was written I tried a variation. We wanted a bit more flavor so I used chopped pepperoni, italian spices and some hot sauce. That way it was good and I'll keep trying different combinations. It's a good recipe to play with and add what you like.
