Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
Very good recipe. I love sweets but this may have been a little too sweet for me. Next time I will try cutting the sugar back by a 1/4 cup. I used a cookie scoop to place them on the pan and they ended up spreading nicely to the perfect thickness. I had a problem with subsequent pans and the cookies cooking too quickly so I turned the temp down to 325 degrees but I was using convection oven and that's new to me so perhaps that is needed in convection ovens regardless. These were chewy the following day.

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
This is delicious-dense and moist. My only change was to add the juice and zest of one lemon and some vanilla extract. I did not have a problem with it being dry as some reviewers noted, but I watched the time in the oven carefully.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
I like that this recipe calls for 1/2 the sugar as most sweet potato casseroles. It was good, but the sweet potato portion seemed to be missing some flavor (and I baked my sweet potatoes instead of boiling).

BBQ Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
My friends and I cooked this for a group of teenagers and it got mixed reviews. I thought it had good flavor and liked it, but others weren't crazy about it.

Cheddar Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
The only change I made to this was using real bacon crumbles. It was very good with Wheat Thins and my coworkers enjoyed it as well. I think it would also be good as a veggie dip.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
These are exceptional! I used square pretzels, Dove caramel chocolates, and toasted my pecans for about 5 minutes by themselves before using them. I was afraid the caramel centers in the Dove chocolates might not do well since it is a softer caramel than Rolos, which a lot of reviewers used. If you use Dove, don't leave them in the oven more than 3 minutes, and press the pecans into the chocolate just slightly so the caramel doesn't ooze out. Mine firmed up nicely and packaged well. Delicious!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
Excellent chili recipe with compliments from my coworkers. I omitted the green pepper and the black pepper for my taste and since I didn't have tomato juice, I used two cans of no-salt diced tomatoes and two cans of roasted diced tomatoes. The spice level was between mild and moderate. Next time I'm going to try adding beer.

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
Very good, basic sausage balls. I did add 2T of milk to help blend ingredients together and that worked well. I used Jimmy Dean sausage and did not have any problems with too much grease in the pan. This was my husband's family's first time having sausage balls and everyone liked them.

Country Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This was fantastic! The batter was very thick so I had a hard time pouring it into the pan in thirds, so I only put the cinnamon swirl in after 1/2 the batter then on top as well. This was moist and sweet and I got rave reviews.

Sweet Potatoes 'n' Pears

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
I used this recipe for Thanksgiving 2007 and it turned out very good. A healthy alternative to traditional sweet potato casserole.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This makes wonderful apple crisp. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and reduced the amount of water. This reduction left the apples (I used granny smith) rather dry, though. I will not reduce the water next time I make it. My only other change was to mix the cut apples into the sugar mixture as I cut them so they wouldn't brown. Wonderful taste and excellent recipe.

Christmas Fruitcake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
I cannot fairly rate this because I used way too much rum. I think if I would have only used the 1/4 cup that was called for, it would have been great. I also used heaping measurements of the fruit and nuts. This is a good recipe for DARK fruitcake.

Grandma's Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This is a fabulous recipe! I was trying to duplicate the pound cake that my parent's neighbor gives them every Christmas - the perfect pound cake in my book - and this is it! I did change one thing: I omitted the mace entirely and instead used the zest of one lemon. Watch the cooking time on this - it only needed 1 hr. 10 min. in my oven.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
I can't handle anything too spice, so I left out the red pepper flakes but kept everything else the same. It was wonderful with ground beef for basic tacos. I love this seasoning.

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
These are wonderful!!! I made these twice. The first time, as written, they were wonderful. The second time I put down a layer of melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and topped with the white chocolate/peppermint mix. I prefer without the dark chocolate, but others liked it. It does seem to work best to save some larger pieces of candy cane to press into the top of the white chocolate to make it prettier.

Cowboy Cookie Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
These are great cookies! I did have a problem fitting everything into a 1-quart wide-mouth jar, even when leaving out the nuts. I guess I'll have to work on that part; maybe I'll try reversing the order as someone else suggested.
