Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
These brownies were certainly rich and fudgy. My first three attempts did not come out all of that good in my oppinion but my children ABSOLUTELY LOVED them. I doubled the recipe and they came out like a runny fudge. This last time I didn't double the recipe but made it as the ingredients call for and baked them in a 9x9 inch pan. As for the frosting this final time I mixed in 3/4 cup of peanut butter in the frosting and heated it up on the stove. I think that I'll not buy any more boxed brownie mixes ever again after trying this recipe. The trick is not to expect a thick brownie. If you don't love chocolate don't try this recipe. My sons are requesting I only bake them for half of the time but I don't recommend it even though they'll come out like delectable fudge. You can't go wrong with this recipe and believe me I've made my mistakes with this recipe but my kiddoes ate all of those mistakes all up and loved every minute of it. JMO

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
absolutely amazingly delicious cake. I make this for my oldest son's birthday every year and lately more of the family has been requesting it on more and more occasions. It's delectable and delicious. For a great variation add some peanut butter chips to the batter as well. You won't be disappointed.

Jif® Peanut Butter Blossoms

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
I agree with other reviewers. Be carefull not to overbake. For Christmas cookies I rolled in white, red and green crystal sugars before baking and baked these in a mini muffin pan. I made 30 cookies. Immediately after baking I added the kisses and pressed firmly then waited 15 minutes before removing. Storing them in an airtight container is a great idea too. Thank you for such a great cookie. My 18 year old son told me that these were better than fudge and just as flavorfull as well. Great recipe and a definate keeper in our large household. I've already made 4 batches in us 2 days and plan on making more as gifts with the children. My 11 and 13 year old rolled the formed cookie dough in the sugars and when they were done they poked the kisses in too! A great source of family fun if you ask me :)

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
As always a fantastic cookie. I personally prefer 1/2 stick of butter and 3/4 cup of shortening. Makes for a puffier cookie. Thank you for having this recipe on my favorite site.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Excellent recipe to make ahead of time and serve on that special day. Warms you from the inside out and has a wonderfull bouquet of flavors! Definately a keeper in my house. The third time I made this I used just chicken broth and it turned out great as well. I trippled the recipe every time I made it and my younger children gobbled it right up :)

Everyone loved it and I got asked for the recipe quite a few times that evening. Thank you for such a great recipe. I will certainly be making this again. A new family favorite recipe for sure and for certain.

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
What a great chili riecipe this is. I put it in right before church and when we all got home it was done perfectly. I friend the meat the night before and sliced the peppers and onion as well. Then in the morning all I had to do was throw it all together and stir before leaving for church. When we got home you could smell the chili as we walked in the door. I substituted the 2 16oz cans of kidney beans for 3 32oz cans of chili beans and insetead of chopping the onions I slivered them and they gave the chili a beautiful texture. Everyone raved about this recipe and two of my guests asked for the recipe. I served fritos, corn tortilla chips, shredded cheddar blend and sour cream with this as well. Thank you for such a quick and easy recipe!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
After I mixed things all up I tasted the batter and I was not pleased. After I got them out of the oven. I looked at them and was not pleased. After I cut them and tasted them I was shockingly impressed! What an excellent recipe for brownies. I have never had such a brownie ever. I changed the sugar to 1 2/3, the cocoa to 2/3 cup, and the flour to 1 cup, and added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. For my son who's on a gluten free diet I used GF flour for his and they turned out fantastic for him too! THis recipe is certainly a KEEPER. From now on it's the only recipe for brownies I will use. Thank you!!

Summerly Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
I tried this because I had quite a bit of squash and zucchini left in my garden. I substituted the fresh tomatoe for canned ones and this turned out great. I didn't have a bay leaf but this turned out fantastic anyway. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil too. My children added some shredded mozzarella and grated parmesan cheese to theirs. I will definately make this a family favorite recipe and make it often during the upcomming summers as well. Thank you for such a practical recipe. Serve this with pasta and it'll stretch for unexpected guests or children who love pasta too (of all ages). YUMMERS

Southwestern Haystacks

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
I left out the corn and added more ground beef and beans. I substitued maccaroni for broken natcho chips. I also used fresh tomatoes and a package of taco seasoning instead of the garlic........came out better than the first time when I followed the recipe exactly. Just some ideas for substitutions :)

Irish Soda Bread I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Excellent recipe and easy to make. I ended up having to make three of these as the kids devoured them all instead of a breakfast of eggs and bacon. They were delighted to know that I saved the recipe!

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Excellent with sausage gravy in the morning. I made this ahead the night before and made a big pot of gravy in the morning. This was the best recipe for biscuits I have come across and they were easy to make and were done in no time! A hit with my five litle blessings!

We have made this a tried and true recipe for my family. Instead of the broccoli we use frozen chopped spinach. Has an excellent flavor and great to get the kids to help with.
