Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
These were good! I used 3 teaspoons of baking powder and added a bit of vanilla and nutmeg. Also, I let the eggs and milk come to room temperature before mixing them in. I used a non-stick electric griddle w/out oil of course.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
This makes cooking bacon so easy! I don't like cooking it on the stove b/c the grease splatters, but this eliminates that problem! Don't forget to cover the top lightly with foil so that it doesn't splatter all over your oven. Oh, and this usually takes 25 minutes to get the bacon as crispy as I like it.

Peanut Butter Cocoa Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
These were pretty good. The cookie came out thick and chewy, but it was very very dense. The only changes I made were to use white chocolate chips and smooth peanut butter, since that was all I had in my pantry. People who don't like peanutbutter said they were good, but they were just too dense for my tastes. I garnished with raspberries for a bit of color...

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
This is a good chicken recipe. It turned out moist and a little crunchy on the outside. I knew I wouldn't have a lot of time to make them, so I just threw the chicken into ziplock bags with the mayo, massaged the bag so that they were covered, and let them sit like that in my fridge overnight. The next day, I just took them out, dipped in a mixture of the bread crumbs and parm cheese, placed on a foil-wrapped sheet, and sprinkled with the garlic powder. I served it with Skillet Green Beans from this site.

This is an easy recipe. I had never eaten green beans with sour cream, but it tasted good. I served it with Tender Italian Baked Chicken from this site.

Valencia Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
This was an easy and delicious summer dessert. I used pecan cookies for the crust and topped it with orange marmalade. I realized that the brand of orange juice makes all the difference. I used a generic brand and couldn't really taste the orange flavor, so I added a splash of Florida's Natural OJ, and the flavor was perfect. Everyone loved this. Thanks for sharing this Don!

Backyard Cooper Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
These were delicious! Moist and flavorful as advertised. I used a bit of extra cheese in the meat mixture. Also, I topped them with extra cheese and crispy bacon. I cooked them in a skillet on medium-high heat for 6 minutes per side, since I don't have a grill. Next time, I may add the bacon crumbled in the burger and let the mixture sit in the fridge for an hour to let the flavors soak in a bit. Also, I may throw in some diced jalapeño for a little kick. But, even without any changes, this recipe would be great!

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
These were good. Next time I may undertake them a little, because they were just a tad dry. The only changes I made were: 1) I melted the chocolate/butter in the microwave. 2) I didn't add chocolate chips to the cream cheese mixture.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
So good! I want to make some right now! I made them without a bread machine by following another reviewer's directions - Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl. Mix in the sugar, margarine, salt, and eggs. Add flour and mix well. Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour. Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Then pick up with rolling out the dough.

Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer!

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
I made this for a football game party, and EVERYONE enjoyed it. I served it on toasted hoagie rolls. Next time, I will pour the beer more slowly and watch it carefully, as the beer spattered when I poured it in to deglaze the bottom. The only changes I made were: 1) I made it in the electric skillet. 2) Half of the sausages I used were spicy.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
Loved it! The only change I made was to ensure the cream cheese was room temperature before beating. I will make this again!

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
Many people asked me for this recipe, because they loved it. They didn't even realize that there were graham crackers used. It is so easy to make! The only change that I made was to heat the frosting in the microwave until I could easily pour it over the cake. Delish!

Easy Pavlova

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
I didn't beat the eggs long enough, so it came out quite thin and difficult to cut in the middle. However, it was still good! Things to note: 1) I left it in the oven for a few hours to cool. 2) I crinkled parchment paper, then spread it out with a thin layer of corn starch to prevent sticking. 3) I didn't add sugar to my homemade whipped cream, because there was enough in the pavlova. 4) I topped it with kiwi and strawberry slices.

These were perfect for our game-day parties. Any leftovers were frozen fully cooked (without the salt topping) for quick and easy dinners.

Scrumptious Frosted Fudgy Brownies

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
These are so chocolatey and delicious! Next time, I may use 2 9x9 pans, because I like my brownies to be a little thinner, but that is just personal preference. I used a glass dish, so I preheated to 350 degrees. Here are the few changes I made: 1) I cut them small and placed in cupcake liners for easy handling. 2) I refrigerated for a few hours to make for easy cutting and then thawed them for a few hours before serving. 3) I didn't know if everyone liked walnuts, so I made some with walnuts and some without, all in the pan. All I did was cut a strip of parchment paper to be the exact length of the middle of my pan. Then, I folded it in half, and placed it so that one half was flat on the pan, and the other was sticking up in the middle of the pan. Then, I placed some objects on the flat half to hold it while I poured one side of the brownies. I then removed the objects and poured the other half of the brownies. The parchment paper held up and didn't let either side of the brownies meet much. When cutting, I just cut them and then removed the parchment. Easy breezy!

Vanilla Wafer Crust

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
This was an easy crust (and especially good w/ the "Banana Cream Pie I" recipe from this site). Changes I made include: 1) I didn't measure the crumbs exactly - just approximated it and added more butter if it was a little dry. 2) I enlisted the help of my husband to crush the cookies in a Ziplock freezer bag w/ a small hammer from his toolbox over a cutting board (much easier than using a meat pallet). 3) I baked it at 350 degrees for approximately 10 minutes until it wasn't too soft. 4) I added 1/3 cup of white sugar before pressing it into my pie pan.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
Everyone at the Memorial Day BBQ loved this! Here are the changes I made, based on other reviews: 1) I didn't bake it. 2) I mixed the bananas (dipped in a lemon juice/water mixture & patted dry) into the pudding a few hours before serving so that they didn't brown, and I put the pudding in the crust a few hours before serving so that the crust didn't soften too much. 3) I chilled the pudding by itself overnight (w/ Saran wrap layered directly on the pudding, so that it didn't develop pudding skin). 4) I subbed the 3T of cornstarch for the flour. 5) I used whole milk. 6) I made sure that I simmered (small bubbles around edges) for 3 minutes until I could make a distinct line down the back of the spoon without it melding back together. 6) I used 2 very large bananas. 7) For the crust I used the "Vanilla Wafer Crust" recipe from this site, and I used the "Sweetened Whipped Cream" recipe to pipe onto the top. 8) To transport w/out messing up the piped whipped cream, I used a few toothpicks along the outer edge of the pie and 1-2 in the middle to tent the Saran wrap covering.
