Batter White Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2000
This makes a super easy and very yummy white bread. I used butter as my shortening and on top, and it was decadant! I was planning to make french toast with the bread, but it got eaten too quick! I just made it again substuting a cup of wheat flower for one of the cups of white, and using olive oil, and it made for a much stickier dough (you even might have to eliminate some of the flour, and use your hands to combine) but it is still quite good!

Super Moussaka

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2000
This was actually quite yummy. I could not find bulgar, so i substituted whole wheat couscous. That worked nicely, and made a yummy dish. It was not like "traditional" meatless moussakas I've had, but my guests liked it anyway. Next time, I'll add some mushrooms to the mix, and maybe some cheese.

Irish Brown Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2004
Even though I left it in the oven a touch too long (I thought 30 minutes could not POSSIBLY be enough, but I think it may have been!), this was great. It was greatly appreciated by my official Irish taste-tester as well. He said it was the most "authentic" Soda Bread I have made so far...

Hearty Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2004
This is my new favorite cookie. I made them for a camping trip, and they were a big hit with everyone! Tasty, but did not give you the sugar crash that other cookies can. These really can be eaten for breakfast, as the name says! I made these with soy milk instead of water/buttermilk and oat bran instead of the wheat germ (it's what I had in the house) and they were perfect. I've made them again, and like to experiement with the additions. My current favorite is raisin/choc chip/cashew. YUM!

Moussaka

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2004
This was great, and did NOT last long. It made a huge pan, and I had hardly any leftovers. I am a vegetarian, so I substituted TVP (texturized veggie protien) for the ground beef, and next time I think I will use the fake frozen ground beef. I will definitly be making this again!

Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2004
I made this using the changes indicated in other reviews, and it came out pretty well. Baked up nice and fluffy in the oven. I only had .25 ounce of red food coloring, but that still made the cake fairly red. (I can't imagine what 2 ounces would have looked like!) I made this with the chocolate cream cheese icing in the frostings and icing section, and it went very well together. Not my all time favorite cake, but good for a change.

Chocolate Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2004
I used this on a Red Velvet cake, and it worked pretty well. I made it for a birthday, and everyone kept saying "there is something different about this icing" as they gobbled it up. It was that cream cheese flavor... I did not use all the sugar - measured out 4 cups, and added it little by little until I had the sweetness I wanted. And yes, the flavor got much better after time.

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2004
I made this cake from the recipe on the Hershey's Cocoa box... and it is the best chocolate cake I have ever made. I made it for a birthday at work, and the cake dissppeared in frighting speed. I followed the directions exactly, and it was simple and perfect. I want to try other Hershey's recipes now!

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2004
Ok, so I made this recipe with burnt butter (i messed up, and didn't want to waste butter) and confectioner's sugar (was out of regular) and it was STILL great! I did use 2 cups of whole wheat flour, and 1 cup of white. This was not like the "traditional" Irish Soda bread I have gotten used to, but it was still pretty good. And baking it in the loaf pan made it great for toasting with butter, and even for PB&J sandwiches!

Grandma's Fresh Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2004
This was really good and easy. I was looking for a quick and easy recipe to make at my boyfriend's bachelor pad... with few ingredients and using no fancy equipment. This was perfect. He does not even own any baking pans, so I actually baked this in a coffee can - and it was great - like a giant muffin. I added an extra egg, and a little milk to get the batter to the consistancy I wanted, perhaps b/c I used 3 apples, which was prob a little more than 2 cups, and baked it longer b/c of the coffee can (about 1 hr and 10-15 mins). This dissappeared in less than 24 hours, and I will definitly make again.

Mom's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
I agree with the other reviewers who said that (1) this produced more than enough liquid for one pie - I may make two pies with the recipe next time or reduce the milk. Also (2) it took WAY longer than the suggested bake time. Mine also puffed up like a souffle and then settled when I took it out of the oven. However, after all of that, this recipe produced a pie with a very nice flavor. And I like using fresh milk and cream, rather than condensed, so that appealed to me!

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2004
This is a simple, yummy spinach treat. I cut it into small squares and speared with tooth picks for appetizers. This recipe is also very easy to adjust for other veggies. I used the basic plan, but left out the spinach, and instead used a batch of mushrooms cooked with onions and garlic (with parsley, a little white wine, and salt and pepper) and it was GREAT - maybe even better than the spinach. I will use this again!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2004
Nearly 300 reviewers can't be wrong! This is a great one. I choose it because I'm not a big fan of sour cream or mayo (found in many spinach/artichoke dips). The alfredo sauce was a yummy, and easy, alternative! Thanks!

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
I always make birthday cakes for friends and co-workers. I USUALLY make the cakes from scratch, and like to experiment with different recipes. But I saw this well rated treat, was feeling "lazy" and had to try it. I am ashamed to admit that the birthday gal said that I had "outdone myself" with this very easy from the box cake. I must confess: I lied and told everyone it was from scratch. Sorry Betty! (Crocker, that is!)

Slow Cooker Sweet and Tangy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
My boyfriend LOVED this recipe - it was a big hit. I did alter the cooking a bit - used 4 large frozen chicken breasts, one bottle of BBQ sauce, and one can of pineapple. I don't think I cooked it quite as long as suggested either (usually I check slow cooker meat early, just in case). I'll be making this again.

Garlic Top Sirloin Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
This was a BIG hit! I think I must also have one of those fast cooking slow cookers - I cooked it on high, and it was done in under 5 hrs. I also put in some mushrooms instead of carrots, and used beer instead of water. This did not last long!

T. T.'s Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
These are so good. I made them exactly as the recipe said and they are getting GOBBLED up at my office. :) You probably COULD cut the choc chips... but why would you? The more chocolate the better, right? Thanks!

Hungarian Goulash II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
This was not the best slow cooker recipe for the amount of work involved. (I cut steaks into pieces, seasoned and browned the meat, created a roux to thicken, etc). The meat was extra tender, but my boyfriend said (as other reviewers have) that the "sauce" was missing something. He suggested Sour Cream. (He's used to goulash with sour cream - although I did pick this one b/c it seemed the best rated HEALTHY recipe!)

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
I gave it two stars for as written - Please take note of ALL the previous reviewers and cook this IN A CROCK POT NOT THE OVEN! I cooked this in the oven - omitting the rack, right in the guinness, adding the seasoning packet, and covering for the first two hours of cooking. The meat just would NOT get tender. We didn't end up eating until 9:45 pm, and it was still chewy. The next day, I threw the whole thing in the slow cooker and cooked ALL Day on low. (8 hrs) and finally it was nice and tender. After the meat was tender, my meat eating man decided the flavor was actually pretty good, but I still don't think I'll be making this again.
