Barbeque Beef Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
With a few changes this is a 5 star recipe and one I will make many times over I’m sure. First off I must say do not wait till after adding your onions, bell pepper, corn and tomatoes to drain off excess grease. One you lose too much of your veggies flavors and natural juices in doing so, for they get drained as well as the grease. Drain your ground beef after cooking it. Adding garlic is a must in my house, so I did. I can see where others say using 3 boxes of cornbread is way to much too. I made a homemade corn bread spread which would have been the equivalents of about 1 ½ box of store bought and it was just right. I also took the advice of others and I increased my barbeque sauce to 1 cup. I also did not pre-drain my tomatoes so it would have more moisture. I’m glad I did not drain them either for it aided in making it moist and gave it more flavor. My husband loved it and is looking forward to leftovers tonight.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
With a few changes this is a very good recipe. I have to agree with some others on cutting back the amount of clovers from the original 1 ts. to ½ ts. The full amount leaves an after-taste in your mouth. I also found using ¾ cups of molasses a must as well. As one had suggested, I divided my batter up into halves, which worked out well. If one doesn’t care for making cookie cutter shapes, you can use the old drop spoon method, which then you would not need to cool dough before shaping and no rolling would be needed. I also agree with a fellow baker on baking for 6 mins only, if you want soft/moist cookies. I will make again but will double the recipe for I found it only made 2 ½ dozen using a medium size cookie cutter.

Caramel Frosting I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
I have made this several time for my Great Aunt and she has given it her 2 thumbs up and even wanted to use my thumbs for a 4 thumbs up. Grant you I made the same mistake as other when I first made it (not reading the yield area). It plainly states " Original recipe yield: 1 - 8 or 9 inch layer" And that is what I got was one layer worth. With that said tho it was my fault and not the submitters. I now triple it for a 3 layer cake. I did not have any of the other problem as stated by others. It was not runny not did it crack on me, but all that has to do with timing tho. You must vigorotsly boil this to have a good turn out. It does ser quickly therefor it is to be poured and not spread on.

Charline's Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Even tho I had to make a few changes this is still a 5 start recipe. I looked at other reviews before making it and follow some advice. I only used 1 Cup white sugar 1/2 cup margarine in both places It turned out great. I made it for my hubbys employee Thanks Giving work lunch and none came home with him. I also used canned yams for I already had them. That was the main reason I cut back on sugar for it has sugar in them. If I would of use Fresh sweet potatoe I would of needed the extra sugar I'm sure. I did drain all juices off my canned yam before using them. Would make again for sure and thank you for sharing your recipe hun 0(*_*)0 Tonya

Easy Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
I should of reviewed this MUCH sooner. This is great. I made this cake for the first time back in December and have made it about 30 times. I sell cakes and pies out of my home and this is a big seller. The only problem I found was it takes 1.5 hours to cook instead of 55 to 60 min. I used the mini chips and have never had a problem. I use the whole 3/4 cup of oil. Anyone who states that this recipe did not turn out, needs to give up baking for they do not know what they are doing.I do use a Chocolate glaze instead of dusting with confectioners' sugar.
