Texas Sheet Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
I am a native Texan and can tell you that this is the real McCoy using real chocolate, buttermilk and ground cinnamon! It is excellent with or without vanilla ice cream. I've eaten it with pecans instead in of walnuts. Either is good. Thanks for the recipe Bron!

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I made this cake this evening. I used two 3"x 8" round pans. I think three 2" x 8" pans would work well with this cake. If the recipe was any larger it would have been too much for those two pans. For some reason I had never tried to make a yellow cake from scratch before. This is just too easy to make to ever buy another box yellow cake mix again! It is moist and tender, and it smells heavenly and my nose is a good indicator for how something will taste! (Haven't cut it yet. Going to serve it with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.) Didn't change a thing in the recipe.

Double Layer Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
Although I haven't tried this specific recipe, I have made ones which are identical or almost identical. I love it, but my husband hates pumpkin in any form. So instead of the pumpkin top, I use instant chocolate pudding using the instructions on the box for pie filling. He loves that one.

Meringue Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
I made these last Christmas to go with a chocolate Yule Log. They were a lot easier than I thought they'd be. I guess I did a good job making them because the grown kids took one look and asked if those were real mushrooms. They looked and tasted great! The only down side to them is humidity. They have to be stored in a dry place at room temperature. My yule log was a big hit in appearance and taste. Will be doing this again, I'm sure, and I will probably also do a couple of pumpkin yule logs (yum!) with cream cheese icing and these meringue mushrooms.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
Very good. The only thing I changed was cutting the recipe down to two servings. Just the hubs and I, and both of us really liked it. It was a nice change from the other breakfast casserole that I make.

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
Made these last night. Excellent! I did make a couple of alterations. I added the juice of half a lime to the marinade and used chunks of green bell pepper and onions on the skewer with the chicken and pineapple. While it was cooking outside, even our dog was freaking out because it smelled so good! Later my husband asked me where I wanted to eat out Friday night. He said that it didn't matter to him because it wouldn't taste as good as what I cooked last night! Huge compliment! Huge!

Sharon’s Egg and Ham Scramble

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
I'm the author of the recipe and I decided to post it because I really am not a fan of eggs, but I thought this was really tasty.

Confetti Rice with Carrot, Celery, and Almonds

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
Loved it! It tasted good as well as being easy to make. I chopped the veggies the night before and put them into separate small zipper type bags. The next day I put it all together. Easy! I liked baking it rather than having to cook it on the stove top. I can't imagine it turning out any more perfect than it did. I wish I'd thought to take a photo of it. Will be making it again for sure!

Hot Mocha Drink Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
I love this stuff. In my opinion it's better than plain regular hot cocoa.

Tangy (Not Sweet) Tartar Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
Dill is the only tartar sauce I've ever eaten, also. I can't imagine anything sweet on fish. Thanks for the recipe, now I won't have to buy it in a jar.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
I love zucchini bread. Give it a try adding about 3/4 cup - 1 cup of small chocolate chips. Very good!

Kiki's Borracho (Drunken) Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
I absolutely LOVE Borracho Beans! I eat them in Mexican restaurants a lot, but never had a clue how they were made to get this great flavor (although I did know what Borracho means and that they probably had beer in them). I will be making these often. Thanks for the recipe Kiki!

Chicken Stock

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2014
If I could I've give it 10 stars! This is without a doubt the BEST homemade chicken stock, ever. I've used it several times and it is a great base for homemade chicken soup, homemade chicken gravy, and many other recipes.

Rum or Bourbon Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
This is a great tasting and easy recipe. I didn't roll them in ground nuts, and I rolled the balls in powdered sugar more than just once. I allowed them to mature in the refrigerator in a plastic zipper bag, left partially open so it could breathe. After a couple of days the sugar was almost completely absorbed into the candy, so I rolled them in sugar a second time, and when it had almost absorbed again, I rolled them a third time. The only other thing I did differently was that I used a good brandy instead of bourbon or rum (even though I had both). I served them to some friends we invited over for dinner right before Christmas. I am now sharing the recipe with those friends because the wife has overheard her husband several times telling his friends how good those brandy balls were. Quite a complement! Thanks for the recipe!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2015
I have made this cake several times. I LOVE this cake! I make it exactly according to the recipe, except I omit the raisins (I'm not a fan of raisins). It couldn't be more perfect. Thanks for sharing this great cake recipe.

Mexican Lasagna Lite

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
If you had trouble spreading the refried beans, try heating them a bit before spreading. That should soften them enough to make them spreadable.
