Rich Chocolate Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
my husband doesn't have a sweet tooth in his entire mouth and usually says chocolate things I make are too sweet, rich, etc. He walked in the door after work and ate one within 30 seconds and said he loved it. That's the true review :P OH I didn't put the coffee in the icing but vanilla like someone here recommended.

Devil's Food Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
For a chocolate cake it was ok.. but I wanted DEVIL'S FOOD. The kind you bite into and feel like you truly just SINNED. I added 1/4c more cocoa as recommend by many as I love my chocolate. I just iced one with the kind I prefer and bit into it. I was so let down. My hormones today require Devil's Food and this did not deliver. It was really bland and not very sweet. If someone knows what I can change to fix this let me know please! Next time I will try a different recipe.

Fluffy Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Just had my son and husband devour the cupcakes right after frosting with this recipe and it was a hit! It didn't get as fluffy as it seemed advertised but it didn't matter to us one bit!

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
I have a lot to say about this one! Hope I help someone! *Leave out the garlic completely unless you're a big fan of it. It was my husband's only complaint. You cook the chicken with the garlic so it gets IN the chicken and he def wasn't for that. *Make sure you chop up chicken and all veg before hand. Basically pretend you're on a cooking show and need it all on display premeasured. That would have saved a lot of frustration. *Make sure there's no dirty dishes already in the sink.. lol lots of comments complain about the amount of dishes but if I had washed the dirty ones before cooking it wasn't so bad. *The noodle amount confused me. 8 oz is 225 grams and my husband told me they prob mean 225g COOKED. And it's like.. a 1 person serving of noodles! So I doubled it... but maybe I used the wrong kind, no idea. I think you could substitute lots of diff noodles like bowtie or something too. *I think it would have been good with a half cup of peas but that's our personal taste... *if you like your veg in casseroles cooked well then def cook them longer because I did as long as said but maybe longer and they came out still a bit firm... but I didn't mind at all. *I didn't have savory but I don't even know what it is so I took the advice in the reviews and used italian seasoning and while the smell of it was sooo strong while cooking, it wasn't overpowering in the final product... Bottom LINE: My husband cleaned the plate and said it's worth making again which mad

Jordan Marsh Style Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 21, 2005
WOW.. I have tried so many muffin recipes from here and even the 'best of the best' etc ones aren't as good as this one I think! I'm ok without fancy crumb toppings. Less work! So I realize now I made a mistake. I had read to use 1/2 butter and 1/2 margarine instead of shortening. When I was making these I misread and used 1/2 CUP of each and it should have been 1/4 of each. Even so, these were AWESOME and everyone who had one went back for 2nds! I am making them again for family tomorrow and will correct my mistake! I didn't change anything else and highly recommend this recipe. Your searching is over! THIS is the one, ok? You can use this batter for other muffin possibilities as well.

Chocolate Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2005
I thought it was basically pretty good but too rich! I especially thought that it called for too much sugar. It's still great to eat though, just in smaller amounts.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2005
I made this same recipe from the Betty Crocker cookbook. The only difference was the crumb topping rcipe has 1/2 c flour instead of 1/3 c and the blueberries sit on top instead of being mixed in. I just submitted a photo of mine to add to this page! I think it would be better if you followed THIS recipe with mixing the berries in! It was too dry with leaving them on the top. I will make this again next week following THIS recipe!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2004
Very easy to make! I did not make the frosting since my husband doesn't like frosting on anything chocolate. I would double the recipe next time because in my opinion, it would only last a day in our house! I also melted butter in microwave to save time.

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
I was really excited to make this as it had such great reviews.. I noticed many said it was too sweet so I used 3/4 cup brown sugar and a little more cinnamon. I also used 7 apples (all I had at the time). However, my husband and I just tried and at first it was like, wow this is great! But halfway through it was just too much!! Still much too sweet and the cake mix made me feel sick to my stomach. I think if I make it again I might use peaches or 3x the amount of apples. I am sure that more apples would balance it out better. I used a cake mix that was exactly the right amount but it was extra moist with pudding in the mix. Perhaps that was a mistake, but all I had on hand.

Danish Pastry Apple Bars II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2003
always a favorite for my family! My mom uses a different recipe and I combine the 2. I find the water and egg yolk to be too much liquid. I use 1 yolk plus enough MILK to MAKE 2/3cup. Mom uses shortening instead of butter but I can't tell the difference. You can also use vanilla instead of almond flavor for the glaze. I also make this on a cookie sheet instead of in a pan. You can make it bigger that way :-D

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2003
Well.. let's say that I can't make anything from scratch.. nothing!! So I decided to try this since it seemed you can change a number of things and still succeed. I used canned peaches instead (equivalent to 6-7 whole peaches.. you really can't get by with the 3 it calls for). I also put 1 cup of sugar with the peaches and thought it seemed like a lot so didn't add the 1/2 cup more. I also upped the cinnamon to 2 tsp. Instead of pouring the water over the top, I saved the juices from the cans instead! Worked out great! I think I made this about an hour ago and it's almost gone... I only wish I had some vanilla ice cream to add to the top! If I can make this.... ANYONE CAN.
