Pecan Tassies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
Followed recipe to a T and no modifications needed - delicious and will make these for many holidays to come. My filling filled about 85 cups of dough.

Simple Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
Recipe tastes good, but cookies DO NOT take the form of whatever shape you've cut them into upon baking - they spread thin and crispy, but yummy.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
Definitely the best cornbread we've ever had. Tastefully moist and rich with a nice corn flavor. So often you can't taste the corn in cornbread, but it tastes wonderful in this recipe! Rises beautifully!

Parmesan Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
Delicious! We did dredge the drumsticks in flour before coating in egg then cheese. Left the recipe as is otherwise. Could use a few more spices to kick up the flavor a bit, but a very easy, enjoyable recipe regardless.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
Not that unique or really all that tangy, but it was an easy way to cook up a pork roast, and the onions were delicious! We will make this again.

Royal Icing II

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
One of the best royal icing recipes I've tried. Very runny as is though. To pipe decorations for a cake, I needed to add a bunch more confectioners' sugar so that there could be form to the decorations (not sure of the amount).

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
Very good recipe. Nice and smooth presentation on a cake. Recipe also makes a lot which is great. One drawback is that you need to have heavy cream on hand. I made the recipe as is the first time but found the following modifications perfect the recipe: use 1/2 butter, 1/2 shortening; use 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp almond extract (cannot imagine buttercream without the almond extract, makes the recipe pop); and use no more than 6 oz of the cream for medium to thin consistency icing (the whole 8 oz was just too much, can't imagine anytime I would need to add that much).

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
Very nice glaze. I was looking for a glaze that was more than just confectioners' sugar and milk and this one was great - easy to make, easy to make as thin or as thick as you'd like, great taste.

Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
Very good recipe, incredibly moist. I added nearly 1 cup more fresh peaches as many reviewers suggested, but I will not be doing this again. The cake turned out so moist that it was almost soggy, so I know that if I had added what I was supposed to add, it would have been perfect. Plus I thought the extra peaches made it too peachy. I should have followed my personal rule to always make a recipe the first time without changes. If I had done that, I'm sure it would have been perfect, as with the modifications I made it was really good. I added a vanilla cinnamon glaze. Very good!

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
No different, no better or worse, than a million other breaded chicken recipes we've tried...and it doesn't beat out my old stand-by.

Kool Ade Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Served this punch at my daughter's 4th birthday party, and I just couldn't get enough of it!!!! It was so yummy. This will now be my go-to party punch! Wonderful!!!! (Note that one batch of this overflowed my punch bowl, it makes a lot.)

Texas Ranch Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Served this at a birthday party and got RAVE reviews from all the adults. So many people asked for the recipe. So very easy to make. I like that's there's not too much sauce, so it doesn't overpower the potato. Very nice flavor. My mother said that this recipe will be replacing the recipe she has used for the past 35 years or so.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
This was good, but I think I'll keep looking for the perfect dip. To suit my tastes, this dip would need to be thicker (less "runny") and heartier (more spinach, more water chestnuts, more ?? - as is, I believe there's too much mayo and sour cream).

Mom's Favorite Baked Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Delicious! Very thick and creamy sauce. I thought the onion added a nice, subtle, almost smoky flavor. Will definitely make again.

Snickerdoodle Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Followed the recipe to a T except that I substituted butter for the shortening. I did add a buttercream (with a small amount of cinnamon added) to the top. I honestly can't imagine this without frosting. Cake was moist and flavorful and not dense. Will definitely make again.

Raspberry Linzer Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
What a delicious, beautiful little cookie. I did not brush the egg white and ground almond mixture onto the cookies, just sprinkled the cookies with confectioner's sugar when cooled. I also used strawberry preserves rather than raspberry - I'm sure raspberry would be just as delicious! I may attempt to use the cookie itself to function as a sugar cookie because it is wonderfully, but mildly, sweet, does not spread - just not sure if it will hold up to icing, but we'll see.

Oven Fresh Seasoned Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Wow, I REALLY can make restaurant-style potatoe wedges at home in my own oven! These were great! I made the recipe as is, and next time, will simply add a bit more salt. I recommend cutting the potatoes into sixteenths for smaller, crunchier wedges (depending the potato's size). Yum! Very easy, will make these again and again!
