Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This is really good. Very light but moist. Only change I made, which I won't do again, was to use 1 1/2x's the topping. Reading the ingredient amounts it didn't seem like it would be enough, but adding more made it too sweet for us. Because of this change I would rate it a 4, but since I know next time I make it with the exact amount it will be a 5, so that is my true rating.

Quick and Easy Home Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
These were simple, quick & yummy! Only thing I changed was to use Season Salt instead of regular salt. Next time I might try it with a little onion and maybe a little ham and cheese to make a meal out of it.

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
My dog loves these, and I have to admit they don't taste bad either! Very easy to make and with the exception of the wheat germ I always have everything on hand. Since I don't stock wheat germ I followed others advice and use oatmeal they it come out fine. I cut them with a very small cookie cutter and was able to get about 80 treats. Nothing is mentioned about what the shelf life is so I keep them in the refrigerator. 2/12/12: Made these again and used wheat germ. I used a medium sized heart cookie cutter and got 24 treats. My dog loves them!

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
These were great and stayed chewy and moist for days! Wouldn't change a thing except that I made them in a 9x7 pan. Thanks for the recipe!

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
This is EXCELLENT! Buttery, moist, sweet, rich and fattening, but excellent! Made exactly as written. I had no trouble getting it out of the pan so not sure why others did. Definitely something I wouldn't make on a regular basis, but delicious just the same!

Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
This is great! I used mostaccioli pasta. The only change I made was to use marinara sauce since I didn't have tomato sauce. I make this type of dish quite often but have never added brown gravy or half-and-half. The combination of ingredients sounds strange but they meld together so well. I think I'll be making it this way from now on!

Rice Balls a la Tim

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
These are really good! Per other reviews, I added additional spices (oregano, basil, garlic powder) after I browned and drained the meat. To break up the meat into even, small pieces, I always use a wire potato masher as it browns. After the 25 minutes of baking they weren't quite brown enough for my taste so I put the broiler on and watched them closely. Pulled them out of the oven and let them set up for about 15 minutes before putting the sauce over them. A nice change from an all-meat meatball!

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
These are incredibly moist! The only thing I did differently was add literally a shake of cinnamon to the flour mixture. Otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. They produced a nice muffin top, something I'm not good at achieving for some reason when I've made other muffins. Overall really great flavor and texture. Will definitely make again!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
This is yummy! A rich, hearty dish. I doubled the recipe but did not double the pepper. I used sodium free boullion so I added the salt the recipe called for. I decided to do what some others had done and used some chicken broth, so for the 6 1/2 cups of water I needed I used 2 cups of broth and 4 1/2 cups water. I think next time I may use all chicken broth and see how it comes out. Excellent recipe and a great way to use up Christmas ham!

Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
While I don't care for yams, my family does, so I decided to make this dish. They all loved it! I did try it myself, and although I still didn't care for the taste of the yams, the topping was yummy!

Old Fashioned Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
This was very tasty. The only thing I did differently, and it's because I like chunky, not creamy stuffing, is instead of toasting and crushing the bread with a rolling pin, I cut the bread into cubes and toasted them in the oven, then put them on the counter to dry out some more. Everything else I followed as directed and it came out great!

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
OH MY GOODNESS! This is awesome! I used 1/2 & 1/2 in place of both the cream and whole milk because that's all I had, and left out the parmesan cheese because I didn't have any, but I can't see how this can taste any better. So delicious!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
Soooo good! The only change I made was to use half and half instead of cream to save on calories. It would have been richer with the cream, but honestly this soup tasted great even before I added the half and half so you could vary the recipe several ways.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
This was absolutely delicious. I used low sodium soy sauce and left out the 1t salt, and it wasn't salty until I added the gravy packet. I did what others suggested and didn't add the 1c water with the packet because there was alot of juice from the meat, but I'm sure omitting it is what made it taste so salty. Next time I will add the water and simply thicken it up with some cornstarch. I have to give this 5 stars because if I would have followed the recipe I think it would have come out just fine. Thanks for a great recipe denisef!

Steak House Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Yum yum yum! These were delicious! The only adjustment I made based on personal taste was to cut down to 2 cloves of garlic, but I think next time I will up it to 3 and see how we like it. I typically don't use alot of salt but I think I could have used a little more here so I added some afterwards. That's easy to change for next time. And there will be a next time!

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
This was really flavorful! I only had chicken tenders so I used those, and I threw them on the BBQ instead of using the broiler. So simple to make...just put them in the marinade in the morning and grill them when you get home. If you know what's in the marinade then yes, it does taste like Ranch, but at the same time, the vinegar changes the flavor so if you didn't know what was in it you might not figure it out. But who cares, it was good! Will definitely make again!

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
This is the best macaroni salad I have ever eaten. I have made it several times now but somehow keep forgetting to rate it! The thing I love the best about this recipe is that it is not swimming in mayo. Too many macaroni/potato salads are and I don't care for them at all. The only thing I change is to cut down on the sugar a bit. It's fine with the full amount but just a little too sweet for my taste. Also, it tastes even better if you make it the day before you plan on serving it. So yummy!

Milky Way® Cupcake Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I'm not a frosting lover...I'd rather eat cake plain than frosted but can't do that when baking for others. This frosting is so sweet but soooo good! I paired it with the Simple White Cake recipe from this site and it was the perfect balance because the cake wasn't too sweet. I was able to frost 22 cupcakes with one batch of frosting, probably because I frosted them with a knife and wasn't too generous with it because it was so sweet. Make sure that your cupcakes are cooled as well as the frosting. So good, and so easy to make!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
Oh my WORD were these ever good! I made cupcakes. I love that they are dense and not too sweet. The only thing I did per other reviews was to add a little more milk. I just eyeballed it but it was probably close to an additional 1/4 cup. They tasted great the night I made them but were even better the next day. I frosted them with the Milky Way Cupcake Frosting recipe from this site and they were awesome!

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
These are delicious! I made exactly has written except that I didn't have whole chicken breasts, only chicken tenders so I used them instead (I didn't use toothpicks) but cooked for the same amount of time as it called for. I made the Garlic Spread recipe from AR for the filling since I couldn't find it at the store. That is yummy too! Both recipes are so easy to make and I will definitely be making them again.
