Mary's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2014
Only change I made was only using 5 slices of bread. But we tear it apart in pretty small pieces and since my son was helping I let him quit at 5. It was just fine after just 1-1.5 hrs in the oven, very moist. Everyone loved it except one kid who has decided he doesn't want to bite into onion pieces. I guess next time I'll just puree them instead. ;)

Crunchy Chocolate Chippers

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2014
I cut back on the oil to 1/3cp and used coconut oil instead of vegetable(only because that's what I always do). Added a tsp of baking soda as well and used unsweetened corn flakes instead of frosted.

Very good! I made some with peppers and some without. Also added a garlic clove to each jar like other reviewers said they did. They were perfect! So yummy. :)

Pop's Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2014
My teenage daughter and niece loved them! However the boys and I did not. Even after doing the ice bath and cutting the flowering ends my pickles weren't that crispy. Maybe I'm just used to the store bought ones that give a big crunch.

Chocolate Cookie Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2014
The only thing I changed is not adding pecans. I didn't have any. It fit perfectly in a quart jar without the pecans. Just make sure to pack everything down pretty well before adding the next ingredient. I used the 1/4 cup measuring cup to help reach it and pack it down. I'm sure you can use anything that would fit down in the jar though. I also put the flour at the bottom instead of the top. It made 40 cookies total using a rounded tablespoon to measure the dough.

Jalapeno Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: May 8, 2014
I gave 4 stars because the original recipe wasn't hot enough for me or my family. I used this as the basis for my jam though. The second time around I chose jalapeño peppers that looked like they would be hotter(and they were) and chopped the tops off and pureed the rest, seeds and all. To get hotter peppers find ones that have what looks like stretch marks on them.(milder peppers are smooth and lighter colored) I cut the sugar in this recipe in half to allow some of the heat from the peppers to stick around. (The sugar tones them down a lot) The last change I made was that I used the Ball pectin that comes in a jar to measure out by tbsp. I like to use low to no sugar added pectin in my jams because I always add a lot less sugar than recipes generally call for. I use almost a tbsp for each cup of strawberries. This time around it came out just like I was hoping for. I think my sister and my aunt will love it! Oh, also I puree my strawberries instead of just mashing them. Which is also why I add more pectin to help it set better.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
Update, I've made this one a couple of times and the kids absolutely love it every time. If you use over ripe bananas it is plenty sweet, in fact I lowered the sugar in mine the second time….. I used two small bananas and added 1/4 cup of flax seed meal, added a tsp of vanilla and used baking soda instead of baking powder. I also subbed half the flour for whole wheat flour and made it into muffins instead of a cake. It turned out light and fluffy making 12 muffins. It is plenty sweet so there is no need to add more sugar or chocolate chips. I did however use over ripe bananas.

Lemon Coconut Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
I didn't change a thing in the recipe. The cupcakes were delicious! Perfectly moist and fluffy. I didn't have the ingredients to do the icing but it sounds wonderful.

Crispy Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2014
Just made these today. They are wonderful! I will certainly be making them again. The true test is when my husband gets home tomorrow to try them. They are not spicy at all though. I think I'll be adding something to them next time. I think I'll go a little less on the salt too. Just a personal preference though. For all those that are saying they aren't crispy enough. Let them sit for a day or two. They get crispier. The inside chewiness dries up and crisps up quite well. I tried baking for 10 minutes and for 12 minutes. It didn't make a difference, after a few days of sitting they all are the same. Adding… my husband liked them, but also agreed they weren't like the store bought ones. I'm trying another batch today.

Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2013
Very good cookie! I subbed the molasses for maple syrup because I didn't have any molasses and I subbed the shortening for coconut oil because it's healthier and I saw another reviewer did it as well. ;) The kids loved them! And as long as I used flour to help roll it all out it didn't stick. The trick is to always use flour when rolling out the dough! My inlays came over last night and even they liked them. They must have because they kept stealing them from the kids. LOL

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2013
I made some suggested changes and a few of my own and it came out great! First I subbed half wheat flour for the all-purpose flour. Then half applesauce for oil and I used coconut oil for the other half. I upped the baking soda to 2 tsp and the baking powder to 1 tsp(by accident, but it worked out fine). And I used only 2 cups of sugar. Then because my oldest doesn't like biting into stuff in his bread I pureed the blueberries and drained out a little of the juice. I shredded the zucchini small and pressed out as much of the juice as I could as well. This made 6 mini loaves for me. Kitchen tested, kid approved. ;) Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! :) Next time I am going to try replacing half the sugar with some stevia for a lower carb option.

Moist Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2013
Noticed that the directions left out the vanilla. But I added it in with the other wet ingredients. Other than that, I followed everything else and they are really good!

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
I used three lemons from my back yard instead of 2 because I like the lemon flavor. Other than that I followed everything else just as written. It was very good! I think I may try like others suggested to add some lemon zest as well.

German Baby

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2012
Although it's good as is, I did add a dab of sugar and a pinch of salt. Then sprinkled a little cinnamon and nutmeg in the mixture as well. This worked perfectly well in a glass 8x11 pan.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2012
Exceptionally well! :) I used butter instead of oil and used 1/2 a cup of sugar instead of 2/3 cup. It was still really sweet though. So next time I will use 1/4 cup of sugar. I'm definitely saving this recipe for future use! And I will never buy a package mix again. :P

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Great dirt cake! I used chocolate instead of vanilla pudding though. And I halved the recipe. It made the perfect amount for our little party. And the kids absolutely loved finding the worms inside. ;)

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
I love this icing. So easy! The only thing was when I went to use it right away, it was too soft and didn't spread right. But after being in the fridge for a while it worked fine!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
My son made a request for banana bread with chocolate chips in it this morning. I guess I picked the right recipe, because he LOVES them! I do too. ;)
