Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
This recipe is wonderful! I have made it into cupcakes a couple times. I made some adjustments as I live in Colorado at 7200 ft. So if you live at high elevation here is my adjustment: Butter: 1/2 Cup + 2 TBSPN, Sugar: 2 Cups, Flour: 3 1/2 Cups, Baking Soda: 1 tsp, and all other ingredients remain the same. Be careful to only fill muffin cups no more than 3/4 full or they will overflow as high elevation tends to make baked goods rise more than usual.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
I add a squirt of honey, 1/4 cup white sugar, and a 1/4 cup flour as I live in Colorado at 7200 feet. Everyone raved about how great this dish was. Thanks for the recipe! I use a large 9x13 dish and it fills it out nicely. Be sure it is cooked all the way through before you remove it. It should bounce back lightly at the touch and come clean with a toothpick.

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
These turned out great! I substituted extra vanilla in the place of the lemon juice so the total vanilla was 1 3/4 tsp and I didn't add any lemon. I wanted the traditional cheesecake flavor which was perfect. I did substitute butter for margarine. I also used a mini muffin pan size so I made about 22 mini size. I didn't use wrappers so it was tricky getting them out. Next time I will use the wrappers. Mini size was a perfect bite size. Took about 10-11 mins but I used a convection oven at 300 degrees.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
This bread is wonderful and moist! I used 2 cups fresh pumpkin puree from a sugar pie pumpkin instead of a can. I also used canola oil. The only other adjustments I made were for high altitude as I live in Colorado at over 7,000 elevation. To sub for high altitude use a little less sugar (2 3/4 cups), add 3 extra tablespoons of flour, baking soda gets decreased to 1 1/2 tsp, and I used 2 cups pumpkin. For baking I have a convection that I cook at 325 degrees. Also be sure to grease the bottom really well as the bread is very moist and will want to stick to the bottom. After the bread is cool enough to remove from pan I cool on a cooling rack for about 15 minutes, then wrap well in plastic wrap. Keep covered in plastic wrap and it tastes the best the next day. So I make at night then tastes great to eat in the morning.

Aunt Millie's Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
We didn't care for this recipe. I didn't add any salt to it and my husband kept saying it was too salty. My 1 year old gobbled it down, but then again he eats everything including paper.

Ham with Honey and Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This recipe is very good. I wanted to thicken it up so I added some cornstarch as well. But then all of a sudden I had all these clumps so I strained those out and dumped everything in a bowl. Meanwhile I used toothpicks to attach pineapple rings to the outside of the ham. I also dotted with a few cloves. It actually worked perfect cooling in the bowl because the glaze was thicken than last time I made it. It turned out just perfect. I baste every 20 mins and take it out when it reaches 160 degrees.

Hot Apple Cider

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
I didn't have any maple syrup so I used a heaping tablespoon of honey instead. I bought a container of Tree Top apple cider and dumped most of it in my crockpot. I used about a cup of pineapple juice that was left over from pineapples on my Christmas ham. I didn't use any lemon. I sliced the oranges into circles and left them in the crockpot the whole time. I threw in two cinnamon sticks, and a pinch of each of these spices: ground cinnamon, ground allspice, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves. It came out wonderful for my Christmas Eve party.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This is one of my favorite recipes. It makes broccoli taste like candy. The only thing I do different is that I add water in place of vinegar.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I love this pie! I made this one and The Brown Family Pumpkin Pie this year and tried them both side by side. The Libby pie won hands down. Stick with the traditional pie! The only thing I do different is that along with all the regular spices I add 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. I also make my own whipping cream. 1 C Whipping Cream (unflavored one in the carton), 1/4 C white sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Whip until peaks hold but be careful not to overwhip or you will get butter. I used Never Fail Pie Crust II.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This recipe was really good. I only made a couple changes. I used half wheat and half white french bread. I cut into small cubes and toasted on low in the oven for a couple hours to toast. I also added one granny smith apple, fresh sage, rosemary, thyme, and parsley. The taste was great but it didn't stick together that well. Next time I will try adding an egg or two. I made the mistake of adding the bread in an hour before I baked to get it ready. The bread got soggy but that was my own fault, next time I won't mix in the bread until right before it goes in the oven.

Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This recipe is so yummy that I actually liked green beans for the first time. Even got the kids to eat them!!!! I used this recipe for Thanksgiving instead of making the traditional casserole.

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I agree with another reviewer that said this pie was "blah." It was ok but really was missing all the yummy spicy favor of traditional pumpkin pie. I made this pie and the traditional Libby's pie and tasted them side by side. The Libby's pie was far better in taste. Just look for the recipe on the back on the can.

Never Fail Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This pie crust was easy and it rolled out very nice. The texture and look of it was perfect but the taste just wasn't there for me. I'm not ready to throw this recipe out entirely so I think next time I will try real butter and see if that helps.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly and these are the best brownies ever! I have no idea how other people found them "cake like," they were so chewy and yummy. Don't over bake! It is ok if the toothpick isn't perfectly clean.

Pineapple Stuffing

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I doubled the recipe and each time I scooped for the sugar I used just slightly less than a cup. I used butter as well. Came out just perfect as always. My husband loves pineapples and really loves this stuffing. Everyone was raving and my kids gobbled it down. I got some yummy sweet bread at a french bakery and cut into cubes and toasted in the oven at 200 degrees for a couple hours until nice and stiff. I will never buy stale bread cubes again.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
These muffins were yummy. I didn't have any buttermilk so I just used whole milk and they came out just fine. They were very moist and had a great texture. I took the advice of another reviewer and added a little extra vanilla (1 tsp instead of half). I also used Canola oil. Next time I am going to try it with nutmeg. I think it would be a nice addition.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
These came out so yummy and moist. I used Canola oil instead of butter. I also used 4 ripe bananas and it gave it such a good banana flavor. I was out of cinnamon but I think the topping was great without it. I will definitly be making these again.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
These are the best cookies ever. My new favorite cookie. They come out so chewy. I used all butter and a heaping amount of peanut butter and a little extra oats as well. I could not stop eating them. I baked them on parchment paper as well. Be sure to take them out at just the right time. My first batch was perfect but my second was left in just a tad bit too long. It was still good but the first batch was chewier.
