Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
THIS FROSTING HAD A GREAT CONSISTENCY AND SUPERB FLAVOR. ABOUT THE ONLY THING I DID DIFFERENT WAS I ADDED 2 TEASPOON OF INSTANT COFFEE TO THE MELTED CHOCOLATE TO INTENSIFY THE FLAVOR. IT WAS SUPER SWEET AND FLAVORFUL. NEXT TIME I MAY ADD MAYBE 3/4 CUP LESS SUGAR. I ALSO USED LOW FAT CREAM CHEESE AND IT STILL CAME OUT FABULOUS. THIS IS A KEEPER FOR ANY BAKER. KUDOS TO THE RECIPE CREATOR.

Pork Chops and Kraut

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
I made this recipe for dinner tonight for the 1st time. I have to say I didn't add caraway seeds or paprika becuause I didn't have any. I used very thin porkchops with all the fat trimmed away cut into strips. I seasoned them with a bit of salt and pepper and browned it in olive oil and then added a heaping teaspoon of minced garlic and a small chopped onion. I let everything mingle together and get transluscent then I added about 1/2 a 14 oz can of sauerkraut. and let it cook then I added about 3/4 cup fat free sour cream and about a cup of beef broth because that's what I had on hand. I didn't add any flour to the sauce because it didn't need it. I boiled some pierogies on the side and added it to the finsihed product and that helped thicken up the sauce a bit. It was by far one of the tastiest dishes I have made in a long time and I am not even a big sauerkraut fan and neither is my husband and we love this. Give it a try and it will become a family favorite.

Never Fail Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
After 12 years of marriage and countless meatloaf related tears and tantrums from my husband, my dogs and myself I have finally found a meatloaf recipe that isboth easy and delicious. The only substitution I made was I ommited the brown sugar and bbq sauce Because I am not a big fan of sweet tasting meats. I substituted 1/2 cup ketchup which I put in the meatloaf mix. About 20 minutes before I took it out of the oven I spread more ketchup over the top and then let it cook. The loaf as juicy,seasoned just right and my husband didn't run for the hills and my dogs aren't trying too call the humane society to rescue them frothe horror of mommy's meatloaf. Thankyou for contributing this recipe.

Oven Fried Chicken IV

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
I made this chicken tonight for dinner and I was pleasantly surprised by how moist yet crunchy it still was. Initially when I put the chicken into the sourcream mixture I was daunted by it because it was so thick and I figured that between that and the cornflakes I'd end up with a soggy, yucky mess. This was so not the case. It didn't burn or become to soggy or too dry it was perfectly moist without being overmuch. I did make some changes I added additional garlic powder and onion powder and some paprika and hot sauce to the sour cream mix. Also unless your a huge fan of rosemary and sage I highly recommend putting in half of those herbs I didn't and it was way to overpowering. I'll adjust for next time. I didn't have oven safe racks so I put the chicken on a oiled cookie sheet with a bit of a lip so no drippings could escape and cause a fire. Nothing stuck and it came out ok. I recommend keeping the herbs in the crumbs and all the other seasoning in the sour cream mix. I also recommend using one egg just to make the sour cream mix a little looser and to bind it all together. All in all I would make this again and again. I paired the chicken (drumsticks and cutlets) with mashed garlic potatos and low fat pillsbury biscuits and gravy. also and additional tip use about 1 1/4 cup sour cream mix instead of the 2 cups. I had alot of excess sourcream. Hey those could be used for the mashed taters or as a dip. Want not waste not. Hope this helped.

Cinnamon-Swirl Raisin Bread

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
When I first read the recipe and the list of ingredients I was a bit put off by the potato. However, this bread is moist, sweet and all around yummy. I made some slight modifications to suit my dietary needs. I added 1/3 cp splenda baking sugar instead of real sugar and I added 6 tbs apple sauce instead of margarine listed. I still ended up with a absolutely wonderful bread I am proud to serve to friends and family. This recipe is a keeper.

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
This is by far the best pork chops I have ever had. I followed others suggestions and added 1/2 cup honey mesquite bbq sauce and 1/2 cup ketchup. I also seasoned them with garlic,onion,salt and pepper. I also added 1 1/2 cups soda instead of one. Please understand I do not like pork but I will eat it if its made this way. It is soft,flavorful, moist meat. To thicken the sauce I removed the chops and strained the sauce into a sauce pan and added flour to thicken. About 2 tbs of flour. Make sure to stir or it will clump up. Just pour sauce over chops and serve. I like to serve these with either rice or potatoes any style. Do not let the weird ingredients fool you. They are out of this world. Thanks to the author of the recipe for contributing. This is going in my permanent family recipe book. Yummy.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
These muffins are delicious. I followed others suggestions and added 1 tsp. vanilla extract and halved the sugar. The muffins are just all around delicious. Next time I will chop up additional walnuts for extra crunch on top. I baked them forr 35 minutes in total. I have a glasstop electric stove. They came out perfect. These would be yummy with coffee or a nice tall glass of milk. Who am I kidding these would be delicious with anything!!!

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
This cake was fabulous. My neice and I made this together for an after dinner treat and it was delicious. It was moist and sweet and flavorful. The only thing I had to change was I added sour cream instead of milk because I didn't have any in the house and I ddidn't realize before I started baking. Also I added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts to it because there is something about bananas and walnuts that just go together. Also I would add about a tsp of vanilla in the future just for some extra flavor. I used mini chocolate chips and it was perfect. Each bite had as much chocolate as banana flavor. I made this in a regular 9x12 cake pan and served with whipped cream while still warm with coffee. This one is definately a keeper. Yummy!

Surprise Banana Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
My friend Sabrina who is a awesome baker liked this one and she doesn't like anything. It was a mix between a cake and a abread. It is just good as is doesn't need a glaze. This is definately a keeper. I suggest creaming the sugar and butter for about 2 minutes then adding the eggs and letting that co mingle with the creamed butter mixture. I smashed up the bananas and added that too. Then I sifted the dry ingredients together and added them slowly. Don't overmix this and you'll have a moist, tender product that will be awesome with coffee or a nice tall glass of milk. Oh so good!

Twenty Minute Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
While I wouldn't say these are your typical hamburger bun they are really good. My family likes them for use in egg sandwiches. I use my mixer with the dough hook to stir and kneed the dough thus avoiding the stickyness. For additional sweetness I 2tb honey, I have also made them regular way. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Very good.

Yellow Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
THIS CAKE IS NICE AND FLUFFY. I DID ADD SOME VARIATIONS TO THE RECIPE. I ADDED 1 TABLESPOON OF ORANGE ZEST, 1/2 TS OF ORANGE EXTRACT AND 1/2 TS OF VANILLA. I ADDED THESE BECAUSE WITHOUT IT THE CAKE IS A BIT BLAND. I ALSO LOWERED THE COOK TIME TO 35 MINUTES AND LOWERED THE TEMPERATURE TO 325 DEGREES. I WORK WITH AN ELECTRIC RANGE SO I KEPT A CLOSE EYE. ALL IN ALL A FABULOUS RECIPE. I PLAN TO SERVE IT WITH A WHIPPED TOPPING AND A TROPICAL FRUIT MEDLEY. ENJOY!!!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
I made this cake tonight because I purchased a huge amount of cream cheese to make cheesecake for a party and had some left over. I was in the mood for something sweet but without overpowering glazes or frostings. This cake fit the bill. It's got such a soft texture and just the perfect amount of crustiness around the edges. The flavors were super delicate and needed nothing else added to it. This cake was well liked by everyone in my family. It would also be good served with fresh berries and cream if you want a little fancy. Next time I will substitute the almond extract for orange extract just to play with flavors a bit. All in all a crowd pleaser!!!!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
Oh my goodness this brought tears to my eyes and a song to my heart. It was simply divine. The recipe is perfect in its dimensions. The only thing I substituted was I used powdered sugar instead of regular sugar because that's all I had on hand. I added 2 cups of powdered sugar instead of the one in the cake mixture. It didn't effect the taste or texture. I made the recipe as specified without all the substitutions and changes other reviewers spoke about. Thank you Stephanie for submitting this recipe this one is a keeper.

Finger Sandwich Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This is a very versatile cookie. It would do well as a cutout cookie as well. I paired mine with strawberry jam for the middle and melted chocolate and drizzled it over the top of the cookie. They are not to sweet and have enough flavor to stand on their own even if you don't want to add a jam or preserve to it. Make sure to work with the dough when cold when it gets warm it becomes to soft to work with. Love and recommend this cookie to everyone.

Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
I would have given this recipe a five star rating except for the fact that the cooking time was off. I think it needeed about 10 minutes in the oven I added some vanilla extract about 1/2 tb. The flavor was absolutely delicious. All in all we still ate the cakes but they were too runny. It went beyond lava cake to a full blown chocolate flood.

Lighter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I've had the misfortune of trying some bad banana muffin recipes. I can assure you this recipe is very very good. It is a hearty muffin that along with a good cup of java or glass of milk will fill you up but not drag you down. I added 1 tablespoon of vanilla and 1/8 tsp of vanilla just to give them a little bit more kick. If you want to be super decadent add a bit of whipped cream when serving. They
