Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
My family didn't care for these. They would rather have chocolate chips cookies.

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
Excellent coffee cake! As many reviewers have suggested, I also baked this in an 8x8 dish. I have to admit that I was concerned about this recipe turning out right because after mixing the ingredients the batter was stretchy like bread dough. I had to stretch it to fill the dish. I also put half the streusel between two layers then topped with the remaining. I served it warm and it was perfect. Will make again!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
These are the BEST muffins I have ever made. They were gone in minutes. I didn't change a thing and they were perfect.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
I have been looking for an easy and delicious tomato sauce for 20 years! I've found it! This sauce is the best. I use it in all of my tomato based pasta dishes, not just lasagna.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
These may very well be the best cookies I've ever made! I followed the recipe exactly as stated, but eliminated the pecans. I used orange flavored cranberries. Tasted like a Christmas cookie. I didn't need to grease the cookie sheet. Cookies took about 12 minutes to cook and they were very moist. Such an easy recipe. Great tasting food with little effort is tops in my book.

S.O.P.P.

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
Fantastically simple and tasty. I did add salt, pepper, garlic and italian seasoning. I'm rating it a 5 because even though I added to it, it was simple to do. Based on comments about the potatoes, I decided to roast those separately in the oven with oil, salt, pepper and italian seasoning. I sautéed the onion, pepper and garlic with salt, pepper and italian seasoning. I added the sausage next just long enough to heat it, then the potatoes. Kids ate it up and went for seconds.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
I didn't get the fantastic results everyone else did. This bread browned far too quickly, creating a very tough outer crust. I have a banana bread recipe that I make at least once a month and the outside does not get hard like this. I may try this again because of the outstanding reviews, but I will definitely cover it with foil after 30 minutes.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
I'm not much of a fan of sugar cookies because they are too time consuming, too hard and often dry. These cookies are soft and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly except used half the salt because my butter was salted. I used a small dough scooper so all the cookies would be the same size. I then rolled them, dipped one side in colored sugar, and flattened them slightly on the pan with a glass. I baked them for 11 min. and they were hardly brown at all. I was worried that they might not be done, but trusted my judgement and they were. Do not go by color to determine if they are done. The recipe made exactly 4 dozen with my scooper. There is a lot of butter/shortening in this recipe and that can be tasted in the end result as others have said. I may try to up the sugar a tad next time. If you frost these, then don't worry. The frosting will add the extra sweetness. These will still remain my go to recipe when I need a sugar cookie fast.

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
My kids love these. Always begging me to make them, and they are very picky about desserts. I use a cream cheese frosting for the filling.

Halloween Jack-o'-Lantern Beef Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
My picky teenager goggled these up. I used cheddar cheese instead of American and I didn't have canned biscuit dough so I made them from scratch. It was hard to see the pumpkin face, because the cheese melted so much. Next time I'll just pop them in the oven for a minute. We'll be making these all year long. Will try other cheeses for variety.

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
The first time I made strawberry jam I used this recipe because I didn't have any pectin. It was the best strawberry jam I had ever tasted. Recently I tried this recipe again and it didn't congeal, so I poured it all back in the pot and added pectin. It was no where near the same in taste and consistency. It ended up more jelly-like without as much chunkiness. One problem was that I tried to double the recipe. This meant I should have used 8 cups of sugar, but I only had 7. It's doubtful this caused the problem because other people have successfully reduced the amount of sugar. Another problem is that in trying to make such a large batch at once, the jam bubbled over and created a huge mess. I moved it to a slightly larger pot and once again it bubbled over. I think that the inability to congeal resulted from the jam not cooking long enough. I used a thermometer and I was only able to get it to 103 before bubbling over. I will try this again, but I won't double the batch and I will mash the berries more thoroughly.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
This recipe is a tasty, healthy way to use up veggies in the your fridge. Anything works. I didn't have lemon, basil or parsley and it still tasted great. Roasting the veggies is the way to go.

Cherry Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
Very easy to make. Absolutely reduce the baking time to a maximum of 50 min. or it will be too dry.

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
Easiest, best tasting beef stir-fry I've made. I cut the sugar in half like a lot of others. I added bok choy at the end, because it cooks quickly like spinach, so its a super easy vegetable to add. I will be making this often.

Macaroni Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
My family LOVES this macaroni salad and they are hard to please. I use mayonnaise instead of salad dressing and omit the tomatoes.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
They were greasy and bland. After I cooked them I had to wash them off, sprinkle salt on them and bake them for another 20 min. to get them crunchy again.

Cherry Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2005
This was very good and well received, but I cheated and used the devils food cake mix and chocolate glaze as described by another reviewer. I'll be making this again.

Joanne's Super Hero Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2005
I made this for my husband for our Father's Day picnic. He loved it. I used different meats and cheese and pumpernickel bread because that was all they had at the store. So delicious. I will definitely be making this again.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2005
This tasted really good. I will definitely make it again. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it was a little more time consuming than I would have liked. Next time I will cook the chicken and vegetables ahead of time to cut down on the prep. I need to adjust the cooking time also because after 30 min. the crust was too brown.
