Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
I had no fresh apples so instead I used a 21 ounce can of apple pie filling. Put down first layer. Used a knife in the can to dice up the apple slices, then poured entire can over first layer. Sprinkled it with some cinnamon sugar I keep mixed in the spice cabinet, then put top layer on. Hit the spot! Wish I had a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2013
I have never tasted a banana bread recipe that I like as good as I like this one. I've made mini-loaves to give away during Christmas. It is excellent. Thank you for sharing!

Yummy Roll Ups

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
I've made these for years and they are wonderful and everyone always likes them. You can use a piece of pineapple or a green olive instead of the pickle for variety. Can't eat just one! Thank you for sharing Courtney!

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
I cut my potato 2 times lengthwise and each of the 3 sections 2 times lengthwise; this gives me 9 "steak size fries." Most of te time, I use no spices at all: only olive oil. I brush it on the potatoes. The 450º works fine and I do flip them half-way through. You can pretty much tell by sight (nicely browned) that they are done. My husband loves them and that's good enough for me! Thank you for sharing!

Chocolate Pretzel Rings

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
It doesn't get any easier than this! Festive, fast & yummy too! I didn't grease the pan, just used parchment paper. The hardest part is unwrapping the Hershey kisses! Thank you Kim Scurio for sharing your recipe and I plan to pay it forward.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
I didn't read the reviews first as I normally do, I made it as is and I only buy low sodium soy sauce so that's what I used. My husband and I both loved it and thought it would be great for wings. We also think it would be great for the grill. I think incorporating pineapple would be good in this recipe. I'll pass this recipe on and I thank you for sharing!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
I didn't have the beef broth so I just used water and my ribs had the bone in. I didn't even need 2 forks to shred, it was so tender it fell apart! Followed the rest of the recipe and all I can say is, I thought my way of doing this was good...but your version has replaced mine in the recipe box! Thank you for sharing!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Always looking for something new to make cause the simpler it is the better my husband likes it. We both enjoyed this meal, I had a package of beef ribs in the freezer I used for the meat. I almost forget the cream cheese and because it wasn't thick at that point, I added about a tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken the gravy, then I remembered the cream chesse. I like mushrooms, he doesn't so I sauteed them and put them on my portion only. Both of us were happy! I'll be adding this to my recipes. Thank you for sharing!

Pumpkin Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
This was like a cake version of pumpkin pie and I loved it! As someone else suggested, I used 15 oz. can of pumpkin instead of 1 cup. I added: 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, 1 tsp. nutmeg and 1/2 tsp. cloves and I baked in a bundt pan for 45 minutes. I would suggest making it a day ahead cause it's much tastier after it sits a while and although I tried a caramel glaze that I failed, this morning I'm having it with Cool Whip and that is all you need on this cake along with a cup of coffee. I'm making it again for Thanksgiving, putting it in my recipe gift books and THANK YOU FOR SHARING!

Cut-Out Cookies in a Flower Pot

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Thank you Laura for giving me the sugar cookie cut out recipe I have been searching for! After leaving the dough in the fridge overnight, it was hard. Left it out a while and worked with it and it was just fine. These are not to sweet and don't have that flour taste so many cookies do. Used another reviewer's suggestion and used JBS BOX's recipe on here for sugar cookie icing. I have Halloween cookies that are bakery quality and everyone who tasted them said the same thing. If you want a crisper cookie, cut them thinner. Once they start browning around the edges, they are done. BUT, even my overbaked ones tasted good. I used parchment paper to bake them on. Didn't change the recipe at all. I can't wait to make Christmas cookies in all different shapes this year with this recipe!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Used this icing to decorate Halloween cookies with my 4 and 8 year old great nieces and it is the best I've tried! I used orange extract for pumpkins, almond for bats and vanilla for ghosts and all were tasty. Put this icing with the Cut Out Cookies In a Flower Pot recipe on this web site and you have a perfect "bakery quality" cookie. I'm anxious to make Christmas cookies with this recipe and decorate gingerbread boys! Thank you for sharing!

Daddy's Whisker Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
Thank you for sharing this recipe! I put too much milk so I added some instant potatoes to thicken, a bit of garlic powder and my husband requested some bacon bits to put on top. I didn't have any dill, but if I missed anything, I sure didn't taste it! First cold day after Summer and yummy hot soup for dinner. I'll make this again and pass it along as well!

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
First time making this and took to Thanksgiving gathering. It was a HUGE HIT! As others suggested, I used cinnabon frosting & baked in bundt pan. The aroma is incredible as it bakes. Make it & have a cup of coffee ready when it comes out of the oven. Thank you!

Cheesy Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
I have tried to make cheesy potato soup before and failed. This one was IT! I used the dried potato flakes instead of flour, salted butter, sharp cheddar cheese and some Velveeta cheese instead of the slices and I used dried parsley instead of fresh. Four adults and many comments later, I had one large serving left! I'm passing it on. Thank you for a winter-ready recipe!

Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
These were very easy and simply delicious. I swirled the cream cheese mixture in with a fork like I was finger painting. Everyone loved them. Definitely a keeper!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
I took previous advice & put these on skewers; also, put them on my cookie cooling rack over a foil lined cookie sheet to bake and turned them several times. Clean up was a breeze! I also wrapped half a piece of bacon around each instead of a third, my error. Just more bacon flavor per yum! My husband thought the brown sugar was a bit too sweet. I thought they were fine, but think I may try brushing on a honey/bourbon mixture or thick barbeque sauce for variation. They stay together really well and mine had no toothpicks to hold them together after they were done.

Buffalo Chicken Wings I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
I fixed these for my son to take to a football bowl party and my son's opinion was "they were awesome!" I liked them, but for hubby and I, they were still too hot and I barely put any of the hot pepper sauce in. For the record, that's just us, we don't like any food that is hot and spicy.

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
If there was a 10 star rating, I would gladly give it! My ribs never turn out and these fell right off the bone-only a fork required. My husband said he would pay for ribs like this. I've shared this recipe with everyone. It will be included in my personal cookbook. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! YUM! YUM!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
These cookies look good and I had no problem getting them out of the pan, I purchased the mini-muffin pans to make them. I will use a regular peanut butter cookie recipe next time I make them because we enjoy more of a peanut butter flavor and it just wasn't there, other than that great recipe, pretty cookie and thank you for sharing! Just to update: I now use a recipe for peanut butter cookies that has 1 cup of peanut butter in it and it made these just perfectly for pb lovers like myself!

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
Pretzels..who would of thought. This is just plain yummy! Being a gal from the South, I like my food rich and fattening...no fat free and sugar free for me. I might get hit by a car tomorrow, so I'm enjoying good stuff like this today! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
