Gooey Butter Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2003
Followed the recipe to the 'T', but for some reason it got overdone (baked for 45 minutes at 350). It still tastes DELICIOUS, but next time I'll try decreasing my baking time to 40 minutes.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
This is an absolutely WONDERFUL recipe. So easy to make, and so good! I used regular milk instead of buttermilk, added a little extra vanilla, added some orange peel and cut back on the raisins (not a huge raisin fan) and they turned out quite lovely. Very moist and a nice flavor. Really great recipe, will definitely be using it again soon!

Pumpkin Cookies VII

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
Love, love, LOVE these cookies! I haven't made them myself, but my mother has made them several times and we can't get enough of them. They taste even better the next day!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
This recipe is SO easy to make, I love it. It's fine as is, but I love to add a heaping amount of garlic powder to it. It gives the pizza a very nice flavor. Tastes good with regular sauce as well as BBQ sauce (try it!). And you can't beat how quick it is. From start to finish, including time taken to wash, cut, and saute some veggies as well as shredding my fresh mozzarella, it took less than 80 minutes. So good, I'm about to make some right now!

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
Using the instructions that one of the other members posted for using a stand mixer, these are FANTASTIC! I put cream cheese frosting on mine instead and mmm, mmm, mmm! They got rave reviews from the guys in my household. One thing I'll probably do next time is make them bigger. Also, there's no way you could fit 24 in a 9x13 pan. I could only fit 8.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
These cookies are PHENOMENAL! They taste great as is but I think with a little alteration you could come up with a great variety of different flavors. Omit cinnamon in the sugar, put lemon extract in instead of vanilla and you've got a yummy, chewy lemon cookie! Add almond extract instead of vanilla and put a piece of chocolate on top (omitting cinnamon sugar coating) and there's a lovely cookie dying to be eaten. I can't wait to experiment with this recipe!

Honey Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
3:1 honey-to-butter ratio has always been my preference. Sweet enough to taste the honey, but enough butter to really get that salty kick. Love it!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
I wouldn't say that this is the BEST ever, but it is definitely a keeper in my book! My bread came out very fluffy and moist but slightly chewy on the outside. Really different than what Mom always makes, but really good. I added vanilla, but it seems to me missing something... I'll definitely keep experimenting to figure out what that something is! But definitely a great recipe.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I'm pretty unimpressed with this recipe. For me, there was too much cider vinegar; it sort of overwhelmed all the other flavors. Also, the area directly around the chicken on the pan was burned black. Chicken is really moist, but I'm not enjoying the flavor.

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
I didn't really like these. Nothing special and the cheese didn't do anything for me. Not bad, but I wouldn't make them again.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
These are the only biscuits I make! Perfect taste and texture; good for sweet OR savory meals! Tastes just as good with honey butter as it does with gravy and sausage.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
LOVE this recipe. So yummy! I like to add a little more cheese to the mix but otherwise I really enjoy this recipe. I've probably made it half a dozen times in the last several months. I recommend finely shredding the cheddar.

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
While this recipe is a good starting point, a few alterations bring it through the roof. Skil the extra chili powder and add a little bit of oregano. Chili powder is usually a mixture of cayenne, oregano, garlic, cumin and salt. Taco seasoning tends to have many of these ingredients already, so to add more is a bit redundant and likely to make your dish too salty. I also added about 1/3 c chopped onion, 1/3 c diced tomato and 1/2 can of black beans. The kind of salsa wasn't specified, so I went with Pace Chunky. With these changes, it made THE best taco filling I've ever had. Basically, experiment! Try adding the kinds of things you normally associate with tacos, adjust the seasonings if you like things a little different.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
One of my favorite and most-used recipes! As is, it's really good and I give it 4 stars, but I normally make a few changes to send it over the edge to 5. First up, I add a small onion, diced finely. Then I add 4 or 5 strips of cooked and crumbled bacon. With these two additions, this recipe is out of this world.

Oatmeal Crispies I

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
These are REALLY delicious, but I'm giving them 4 stars based on the instructions being a bit vague. "Shape into long rolls"? How long? How big should they be? How many rolls? I didn't know, so I just guessed. I guessed wrong and just made one 2 1/2' long log, so I ended up with bigger, chewier cookies. DELICIOUS, but not crispy. Next time, I would definitely divide the dough into two 2.5' logs and I imagine it'll go better. Also, be sure to place the cookies 2-3" apart or they'll stick together. But really, even messing up the size of the cookies... it doesn't matter that much. You still end up with a delicious, SUPER easy to make cookie. I used pecans instead of walnuts since it's what I had on hand, and I chopped them very finely so they blended in with the cookies instead of standing out.

Chicken and Peppers with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
DELICIOUS! The 4 stars is only because the cooking time is a bit off. The veggies need minimal precooking since you're going to cook them with the chicken and vinegar for 20 minutes anyway. I ended up cooking the chicken full-through, setting aside, cooking the veggies to tenderness, adding all the rest of the ingredients and chicken to them and cooking about 10 minutes until the chicken was heated through. Next time, I'm going to try grilling the chicken and veggies in order to cut some calories. Overall, a wonderful dish that has given me reason to love vinegar!

Broccoli Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
GREAT with a couple of suggestions. My husband and I like a little spice, so I added about 2 tsp of cayenne pepper. I also added 2 tbs minced garlic. I put half the meat/soup/etc mixture in the baking dish, topped with half the cheese, topped with remaining meat mixture and the rest of the cheese. Served over mashed potatoes. I think next time I'll put mashed potatoes on top before the last half of the cheese. The starch really goes well with all the rest.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
LOVE! This is a recipe I will make again and again. I added a couple ingredients just for my personal taste (onion, garlic and a splash of vinegar) but even written as is this is a great recipe. I tried it both with and without pepperjack cheese. Both ways are pretty awesome. I love this recipe so much that I plan on making it again tomorrow!
