Best-Ever Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Great cake! Followed the directions exactly and then frosted with a white icing from this site. Don't be nervous if it smells like it's burning within the time specified, it's fine! I'll be keeping this recipe, it was very easy to do!

Cream of Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
WAAAAY too much milk. Wasted a lot of ingredients by trying to make a larger batch. I won't make this again.

Glorious Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
Followed the recipe exactly. Cake stuck to the 'ungreased' pan (last time I'll make that mistake). It was more dense than I'd wanted, I was expecting a light, airy cake. I won't make this again.

Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
I made only half a pie in a small ceramic dish because I live alone. This recipe halved well, despite the requirement of one egg (I simply skipped sealing with the egg and it was fine). This was great, I'll make it again!

World's Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Only my second attempt at making potato salad, trying to mimic my mom's recipe. It wasn't spot on, but it was pretty good! The potatoes were cooked perfect at about 25 minutes. The dressing was creamy and flavorful. I'll make this again!

Old Fashioned Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
I followed the directions exactly and was quite disappointed. The potatoes were undercooked (but having followed the directions, they were 'firm but tender' when I cut them. Once it was all mixed, it was quite apparent that they were very undercooked). Sadly, the liquid from the pickle relish made it watery. And for my own taste, this was not nearly creamy enough. That's just a personal preference though. I'll keep searching for a recipe to mimic my late mother's potato salad.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Easy and delicious. I used my potato ricer to juice the lemons and only needed to use 5 of them. Adopting a childhood tradition, I also sliced up an orange (gave it a little squeeze over the pitcher) and threw the entire thing in. Thanks for a great recipe!

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
I made the dough in my bread machine, then shaped it into rolls for baking. I also put half of it in the fridge for another day, but the dough expanded and seeped out of the Press N Seal wrap it was stored in! The dough was a bit sticky, but some spray helped with that. I probably shouldn't have done it, but before baking, I brushed my rolls with butter. OH MAN was that ever good! I don't know what they'd taste like without it, but I doubt I'll ever find out!

Rhubarb Sauce II

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
I goofed it up and it still worked! I'm generally pretty good at reading directions, but I threw everything in the pot and then read them! It's ok, the rhubarb softened up and disintegrated as it was supposed to. I love almond, so I threw a bit of almond extract in there. Also, it makes it more appetizing if you throw a couple of drops of red food coloring in. Delicious!

Rhubarb Custard Pie IV

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
I cut this recipe in half and made in a large (14 ounce) ramekin. Because it was deep, I think it needed longer to cook because it was still runny after the time was up. Tasty though!

Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This was fabulous, and flexible. I didn't have any cider vinegar, so I substituted red wine vinegar with no problem. Also, I'm not a fan of spicy stuff, so I didn't have any hot sauce in the house. I did squeeze some honey into the bbq sauce. I made half the bbq sauce and it was plenty for 3 pounds of ribs. Because of my work schedule, I cooked as the recipe said for 45 minutes on 350, but I had to wait to put it on the grill. So I turned down the oven to 200 and left the ribs in there, covered for probably 1 /2 to 2 more hours. It worked fine. When this came off the grill it was sticky, chewy, crunchy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside and absolutely NOT dried out! PERFECT!!

Blueberry Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
Hmm. I'd agree with the statement of them tasting like blueberry cheesecake if the layer of cake on the bottom wasn't so thick, and the layer of cream cheese on the top wasn't so thin. They're ok, just not really what I was looking for.

Lemon Posset

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
I think I would have rated this higher if, after 7 hours in the fridge, the center wasn't still mostly liquid. Perhaps it has something to do with the way I juice my lemons (with a potato ricer) and that gets more juice out of them - I would guess that might change the consistency. It would be good to know what the 'juice of one lemon' equals to in measurements. Just a thought.

Turkey Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This is a pretty good recipe, even though I made a few changes based on what I had in the house. It's fairly forgiving. I used chicken instead of turkey and had no pimentos. I'm not sure about the marjoram and oregano for seasonings, but I'll play around with it another time. I halved the recipe but used lots of veggies. This would be GREAT with sliced, blanched almonds!

That Addicting Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
This was missing something. I haven't quite figured out what it was, and I may not because my mom is gone and I never got the recipe from her. But I remember this salad, I grew up on it since mom made it at home. Though Tequilaberry's is now closed, you can still get this salad at the Vineyard. Oh....and just a tip....the original salad has real (crumbled) bacon, and the cauliflower is chopped up fine (kids usually don't notice it).

Buttery Pan Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
This is an extremely versatile dough recipe. And it's very easy to work with. So far I've made it in my bread maker twice, on the dough setting. The second time I goofed and added all the butter to the dough. It didn't hurt anything. However, this recipe is far too big for my breadmaker - the flour was all the way to the top, and when the breadmaker started to mix it, the flour spilled out onto the heating element and smelled TERRIBLE. It was only a few minutes after starting, so I was able to clean it up and start it over at the beginning with no problems. I have used this dough for dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls, it's fabulous! I would recommend cutting in half though, especially if using a breadmaker!

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Fabulous. Used this to fill eclairs from this site - big hit. Also used it on a boston cream pie that completely flopped. LOL. We ended up taking the frosted, flattened cake and dipping in the pastry cream. It was still really good!

Miniature Chocolate Eclairs

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
These were a hit at the election party to which I brought them. Instead of chocolate pudding, I used a pastry cream recipe from this site.

Bacon Quiche Tarts

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
This was surprisingly good. I thought it odd to have so much cheese and so few eggs in a quiche, but it worked! I used crust from another recipe on the site and it worked fabulously!
