Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2013
Wow, these are amazing! I like the other type of pecan pie bar too, but these are better. I made the recipe as written, and WOW, they are so good! Oooey gooey perfect. Not sure why others had trouble with it, because this was an easy, perfect recipe. Thanks so much for sharing, this one is going into the family recipe book.

Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
I wish I could give this recipe 6 stars. I have made 3 pans of these in 3 days now for different potluck type events, and they have gotten rave reviews every time. They literally fly off the platter! Delicious, easy, and simple. My kind of recipe! Thank you for providing it. I added chocolate chips and raisins twice, and just raisins the last time. Wonderful every time.

Easy Slow Cooker Carne Guisada

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2013
What an easy, flavorful meal. I made it as described and it turned out delicious. Very mild heat but lots of flavor. We will be making this again. I read several of the reviews before making this, and had a few concerns. I am very glad I didn't make any changes. Perfect the way it is!

Unbelievable Fish Batter

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
Very tasty batter. I followed suggestions on the baking powder and reduced it to 2 tablespoons, added a few spices, and it turned out wonderful. Light and crisp! My favorite has always been beer batter but this family doesn't have beer at all anymore. This is a great substitute, just as good as beer batter. Thanks!

Bundt Dutch Apple Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
Oh, my goodness. This is an amazing cake! I made it exactly as presented, and it was perfect. I was worried about the cook time because of the reviewer who said it was overcooked at 70 minutes. I checked it at 50 minutes, again at 60, and left it in for the full 70 minutes. It was perfect, not too dry or overcooked at all. I used a simple powdered sugar, milk and vanilla glaze on it after it came out of the oven. My entire family loves it, and are just amazed at how delicious it is. This cake just entered my family's recipe book of repeat recipes, a rare and unusual honor. Thank you for sharing it!

Buttermilk Bread II

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
WOW, this is delicious. I mixed the dough in my bread machine, and it looked dry after the first heavy mixing. I added a half a cup of milk, and it turned into the most amazing looking dough after that! It rose perfect, smelled delicious. When the dough cycle on the machine was finished, I removed the dough and shaped it into 2 loaves rather than put it in pans. I let it rise again, gave the tops a few slashes with a knife, and baked it for a half an hour. It rose more while it baked, and the bread turned out beautiful. I brushed butter on the top of the loaves when it was done so the crust wouldn't be hard, let it cool a bit, and tried it. Oh, my. Such flavor! This bread is perfect yeasty goodness, dense and moist and satisfying. My husband and I had slices toasted today with breakfast, and I just can't get over how perfect of a bread this is. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. Great recipe, thank you for sharing it.

Caramels

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
Excellent recipe that turned out wonderful. I did have trouble getting it up to temperature, but I live at a very high altitude. With that exception, it turned out very well. Advice: Use a very deep pan, this stuff more than doubles in volume as it cooks. Use a liberal amount of Pam on the pan you are using. Stir, stir, and stir so this doesn't scorch. I used some of this recipe to dip pretzel rods and it was amazing. Wonderful flavor, but remember that it takes some time to make. Not for the faint of heart!

Pretzel Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Oh, how happy I was to try this recipe! I had some of Costco's pretzel rolls a while back and loved them, but Costco is 90 miles away. I tried this recipe and made them into small dinner rolls. They were better than the Costco ones. Next time, I will double the batch. This recipe made 8 dinner rolls. They kept very well. I will freeze some next time. Perfect with a ham and swiss sandwich with spicy mustard!

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
This was really tasty... in small portions. It was really very salty to me. If I were to make it again, I would use the low sodium soy sauce in it.

Irish Potato Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Excellent recipe. It is perfectly spiced, moist and delicious. The potatoes make for a dense, wonderfully rich cake recipe. This is like taking a bite out of a dessert made by my Great Grandma. Thanks for sharing, this recipe has now become a permanent favorite in our house. Vanilla ice cream is yummy with it. :)

Stuffed Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Really good recipe. I modified a little. This is a dry household, so no wine here ever. I used chicken broth instead. I also added 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese, mainly because it needed to be used. Glad I did, as it gave the stuffing a smooth, cheesy flavor. I also reduced the amount of crumbs to 1 cup. Really delicious, this recipe is a keeper.

Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
This is the original Waldorf-Astoria Red Velvet recipe, with the exception that it doesn't say to heap the tablespoons of cocoa. It takes a bit of work, but the results are amazingly good. The cakes turn out wonderful, but keep an eye on them. If they are overcooked, they turn out dry. In my oven at 350, two 9 inch pans take 28 minutes. When I lived at a lower altitude, it took a few minutes less time. The only change I make to the recipe is to substitute unsalted butter for the shortening and reduce the food coloring to one ounce. In my opinion, butter makes for a richer, moister cake and one ounce of red food coloring makes it plenty red. The frosting can be challenging, especially the first time. I have never had a problem with lumps in the flour and milk mixture. I whisk it as it cooks. It doesn't take long to thicken, and I stir it the entire time. It may seem like the white sugar in the frosting recipe will not blend in. It does. After combining the four and milk mixture with the sugar, butter and vanilla mixture, expect to beat the frosting on high speed with an electric mixer for 8 or 9 minutes. The frosting comes out a lot like whipped cream when it is finished. This is a very old recipe, and I hate to see that credit isn't given to its origins. It is an award winner, too. Wonderful recipe!

Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
I made this a couple days ago for a barbeque, and it was excellent. I did modify it a little! I used yams instead of sweet potatoes, so I did not boil them first. I just peeled and sliced them in layers with the apples and brown sugar. I also changed the topping. One family member can't eat nuts, so I used oatmeal instead in the topping. Oh, and I added raisins. The whole thing came out great. Most people went back for seconds, and a few for thirds! Thanks for the great recipe, I have added it because I will make it again.

Steakhouse Wheat Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
This was a good, flavorful bread, but not the best wheat bread recipe I have tried. It was a little sweet for my tastes, and it didn't keep for as long as I am used to with a wheat bread.
