Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2004
My Grandmother was the baker of the Zucchini bread. As time went on she couldn't anymore. I found this recipe and it use all the same ingredients. I made it and gave her a loaf. She gave me the biggest compliment. "Just like mine" she said. She passed away in Aug - This will be the bread I will make from now on. Thanks!!

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This is just the recipe I was looking for! I have my faithful cut-out recipe but was looking for a drop one and this is now part of my collection. I will say to make sure you do not over mix the dry in to the cream mixture. Only mix until the dough comes together. Over mixing will lead to a cookies that will not rise. I also flattened my quite a bit with a bottom of a glass because they do not spread a lot. I just added colored sugar to the tops and got my glass of milk ready! Thanks!

Michelle's Soft Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
I was looking for sugar cookies that was slightly softer and a little sweeter than my go to recipe that I use with icing and sugars. I did a small change to the recipe of using 1/2 butter and 1/2 margarine. I have to say, these were divine! Please know that the dough does get soft very quickly so work in small batches, returning the the scraps to the fridge. I also had the oven temp at 350 and backed for 10 mins on a foil lined baking sheet. They were perfect and thank you for sharing the recipe! I will happily add this to my collection.

Heavenly Shortbread

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
I was a little nervous with trying this one but after reading the reviews I jumped with both feet in and I am glad I did. I did use butter as the recipe called for and can taste the lovely rich flavor of the butter. I did also add a tsp of vanilla just because. These cookies melt in your mouth. I used a cookie scoop and the bottom of a glass to flatten them out. I did adjust the oven temp to 350 and checked after 12 mins. I enhanced some with a dip in cinnamon sugar, some I pressed mini chocolate chips into and some I added an orange flavored icing. I am so glad I tried this recipe, thanks so much for sharing it.

Sour Cream Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I really really liked this recipe. My only change would be a sweeter crust and a bit more vanilla in the cream cheese mixture. The bake times were spot on for my oven. The only thing I did different is I put the cake in the fridge fresh from the oven after the cream cheese topping and it did not affect the setting or texture of the cheescake at all. I will be making this again and again.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
I was looking for a quick and easy pizza dough recipe that I did not have to make time for length rising when I was in a hurry..or simply forgot. I am a mom of 3 life happens. This was perfect! I did not have bred flour and used A/P and it came out just fine. I did add 1/2 tsp more salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp of onion powder to give it more flavor that my family enjoys. This recipe makes 1 large pizza (mine are rectangular 16" x 13")with a hand tossed thickness. For my cheesy bread sticks I added a 1/2 of grated parmesan cheese to the doug and it was again wonderful. Thank you for such a great and easy recipe.

Zucchini Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2003
I served this for my son's birthday party. It was a nice change from the typical red sauce and penne pasta. It was lighter pasta dish for the summer. My family enjoyed this very much.

Blueberry Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2004
I made this for the girls at work and it was a hit. The pecan topping was wonderful! It made the house smell great. However I ended up adding 1/4 cup more milk. After adding the blueberries the batter really thickened, almost like a paste. I added the milk and because I had to put it thru the mixer again it did burst open some berries (I use fresh frozen)It still baked up nicely. Thanks!!

Instant Russian Tea

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2004
We had a Bridal Shower Tea Party for my now sister in law. I made this to give as her shower favor. It was great tasting although if you use sweetened lemon ice tea mix which was all that I could find at my grocery store I would decrease the lemonade mix and sugar. I am going to try it next with unsweetened instant tea crystals processed in a blender first and see how that works. Thanks for sharing!!

Ground Beef Wellington

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
I have to agree with other posts that it needed more flavor.I also was needing to DOUBLE the recipe so the adjustments are for 1# of meat. I added 2 cloves minced garlic, and grated onion to the gravy mixture (1/2 whit onion), also salt and pepper to taste. To the meat I added about 2 tsp worchestire sauce and Paula Deen's house seasoning (salt, peper, and garlic powder). They cooked up pefectly in the oven. I also did an egg wash as suggested by another post. OH! If you have extra gravy save it! It was perfect over eggs the next morning!

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
Made this for the first time tonight. Hubby and I both love our restaurant's soup. Thank you for sharing this. First I will say I did not have prepared chicken broth. I had to use a soup base and water it worked just fine. I also subsituted finley sliced green onion for the chives.I did follow the suggestion of adding the cornstarch before the egg and it to worked wonderfully. My only change would be more ginger, or use fresh ginger, but that is my personal taste. It was perfect and we will be enjoying this again. Thank you!
