Easiest Ever Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
I really didn't care for this. After adding the whole can of peaches and syrup I ended up scooping some of the syrup out before baking because it was just so soupy. It looked nice and smelled great but it had an odd texture towards the middle of the dish it was all gummy and gross even though it was not undercooked, you could tell that's just how it cooked. Around the edges where it crisped up a lot it was decent but most of it went in the garbage. If I try this one more time I will drain the peaches and only add a touch of the syrup. It was just too gooey but the taste was nice. I only used this because I had a can of peaches sitting in the cupboard though...doubt I will be trying it again.

Crazy Crust Apple Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
I really didn't like this and my husband and kids also thought it was gross. I think it taste really 'eggy' even though there is only one egg in it. If anything is it more like a 'kuchen' breakfast cake than a 'pie.' I had one slice and the rest went in the garbage. At least I got to use up that can of apple pie filling I had in the cupboard. It did look pretty nice and smell good, but the taste and texture were all wrong.

Cheesy Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
Love this recipe! It is really creamy and a kid favorite. I usually make it for Easter as a side dish, everyone loves it and it's easy to do. You can prepare everything the night before, put it in the fridge, and just add the breadcrumbs and bake the next morning. I've also switched out the breadcrumbs for crushed up buttery round crackers and that tastes great as well!

Cindi's Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
I sauteed some cole slaw mix in a wok and added the 'sauce' and just used that to fill my wrappers. I was really surprised with molasses in the sauce and I loved the flavor. These were the most flavorful egg rolls I have ever made, my husband likes them as well. You do not even need a sauce to dip them in, they taste wonderful by themselves. I'm sure meat eaters would love the complete recipe but it works just as well to make with just the veggies!

Japanese-Style Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
I thought these were pretty good. I used frozen home grown beans and boiled them for a little while first because my husband hates his veggies 'tender crisp' and prefers them softer ... I bet this would have been great with fresh beans especially if you like your beans a little crispy.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
I made this for my husband and he thought it was okay. Probably not something I would make again although it was easy and looked nice. He said it does not reheat well at all.

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
The first time I made these I followed some of the reviewers advice and let them sit for a little bit in the pot before dropping and also added the vanilla in with the sugar mixture at the start, and I also let them boil for 90 seconds as was recommended. They were a little too dry, but my husband loved them and they did taste great! He was begging me to make them again so the second time I followed the recipe as written except used creamy peanut butter and they were PERFECT! Don't mess with the recipe, it is just righ!

White Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This is wonderful bread! I used the dough cycle and followed the previous reviewers suggestion of shaping it into a 9 bny 5 loaf pan and letting it rise 30 minutes (although next time I'd probably let it rise 45-60 min). Then baking it at 350 for 35 minutes in the oven. Turned out perfectly! My husband LOVED it and said I should make it every morning! We had half the loaf left over for a couple of days and I made the BEST garlic toast with it...slice 3/4 inch thick, generously butter both sides, put on baking sheet lined with nonstick aluminun foil, then mix 1/4 cup parmasan cheese with 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and 1 tsp. of Italian seasoning, sprinkle on each slice of buttered bread (on top side only) and then sprinkle the top of the seasoned side with a 3 tbsp. shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes or so until bottom is toasted and top cheese is bubbled and browning. These were so delicious with spaghetti, much better than the frozen 'Texas Toast' you buy at the store. This bread is requested especially for the garlic toast I make with it! I bet it would make wonderful French toast as well!

Susan's Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This recipe was a bit disapointing :( I had really high hopes because because of the ingredients and reviews so maybe that was the problem. It really sounded delicious, especially the butter sauce! I make pound cakes quite often (family favorite) and have had some great ones made from recipes on this site, but this one was not so great. After sitting for a day the cake was really dry except for the sauce soaked parts.The only way I would serve this to company is topped with a fruit sauce, like sauteed strawberries and sugar, but I won't be making this one again.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
These are so delicious! I just put everything in my bread machine on the dough cycle and followed the rest of the recipe. My husband loves them and is requesting them all the time! They are so much better than store bought and taste like they are from a fancy burger joint. I don't think we will ever buy store bought buns again! Yum!

Quick and Easy Home Fries

Honey's Butter Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
I tried this because it was recommended in another review and it wasn't quite what I was hoping for. It is a coffee cake not a pound cake. It had a medium light crumb, was not dry but not exactly moist either, and not dense despite the very thick batter...perfect for a coffee cake! My husband LOVED it as did my toddler. I like really moist dense cake and this was not it but my husband prefers lighter crumbly cakes and this one fit the bill. I think there is a little too much cinnamon sugar mixture so I would cut that in half next time. It was quite tastey though and didn't last long in our house :)

Donna's Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
This was pretty good for using a boxed cake mix. I don't usually use mixed but for some reason I had one in the cupboard and searched for a recipe that I could use it in. Tastes much better if you let it sit (removed from the pan and covered of course) overnight. I used a couple drops of butter flavor and a 1/2 teaspoon of rum extract for flavoring instead of the lemon and it was delicious! Husband and toddler loved it for dessert :)

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2006
Great basic FT recipe. I don't think the flour made much difference compared to traditional FT but this recipe was very yummy. I used half a loaf of challah which worked nicely with this recipe. We kept the leftovers in a zip lock baggie and reheated them in the toaster oven and they were great a few days later. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2006
Followed this recipe except for substituting a shake of onion powder for the onion (don't like onion pieces in casseroles). This was pretty tasty! I had been wanting to try this for a while since my husband loves green beans but hates mushrooms so won't eat the traditional GBC. He liked this as well but thought it was a little too 'zesty' which could be because I used extra sharp white cheddar (all we had on hand). I also took the reviewers suggestion of mixing the cheese with the green bean sour cream mixture and am glad I did. I will probably make this again but next time will use a very mild cheddar, a little less sour cream, maybe 2/3 cup, and the traditional french fried onion topping. The cracker topping was great but I missed those crunchy onions :) Thanks for a great recipe for those who don't eat mushrooms!

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2006
I liked this recipe better after adding some soy sauce and vegetarian worcestershire sauce as other reviewers suggested. Without those additions the sour cream taste is overwhelming. I'm glad I tried this recipe, but will stick to my usual mushroom stroganoff which is easier, just sautee a variety of thinly sliced mushrooms with butter and seasoning salt, add some sour cream to taste, and whisk in veg. broth to your preferred consistancy.

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
This was my first time making a cheese ball and it received rave reviews! I used freshly shredded sharp cheddar and probably used more like 4 cups and it was perfect! My husband who hates anything with cream cheese even ate it and liked it! I don't even think he knew it had cream cheese in it. I will be making this again for sure!

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
These were delicious! My husband and toddler loved them. We had spaghetti for dinner that night and we dipped them in the sauce, much better than breadsticks! Great recipe, really easy, would make again for sure!

African Sweet Potato and Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
This soup was a lot of work and the end result was nothing that my husband would even touch because of the smell. I followed the directions completely and can see where it would be easier to use canned sweet potatoes and tomatoes...but I had fresh so I used them up. I thought it was okay, not something I would make or order again if I had it in a restaurant. Even though I love all of the ingredients seperately they just didn't mesh well for me.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
This is the PERFECT bagel recipe! My husband and I could not believe how delicious they were and they tasted better than our local "Gourmet Bagel" shop. I made cinnamon raisin bagels by kneading in 1/2 cup of raisins and about 1 tbsp of cinnamon after I took the dough out of the bread machine. I could not believe how easy these were to make! We will be making them all the time and will not be wasting money on freezer or grocery store bagels, these are SO much better! Can't wait to try some with asiago cheese baked in. Mmmmm!
