Layered Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bars

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
Baked for 18 minutes, added 1 cup oatmeal rather than 1-1/2 cup in recipe and it was the perfect amount. I also added a few more tablespoons of chocolate chips for the topping. Not too sweet...very yummy!

Baking Powder Biscuits I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2014
These came out tender and rose high. If you don't have a pastry blender to mix the flour/butter mixture, cut the cold butter in bits and mix with small fork till crumbly. Also, don't over mix the dough. Stir till combined and roll out onto lightly floured surface. Roll dough over about a 10-12 times to get smooth and cut rounds with cutter or floured rim glass. I got eight biscuits using this method. If over mixed, they will be tough and not rise as much.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
DELICIOUS!! I use only real butter and Hershey brand cocoa when baking as it's the best combo! Mixed batter by hand; careful to not over mix. I doubled the recipe and baked in a 9x12 pan coated with butter. One reviewer used only 3 eggs, but I used all four. For the icing, I doubled as written and added 2-3 tablespoons of warmed milk to get to the desired consistency. The icing was very fudgey and perfect on top of brownies right out of the oven.

Berry Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Very tasty muffins! I used organic coconut oil as it is healthy oil in place of vegetable oil and drizzled a bit on top of each muffin after I added the oat/cinnamon topping to hold the topping on a bit better...and it worked wonderfully!

Tammy's Tempting Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
Did NOT care for this! I just wasted time, ingredients and money in making this. It did not set-up and I followed the directions exactly and it tasted like salty ranch cheese...no real flavor except a salty taste. Not sure what all the fuss and almost five stars was all about in this recipe. Back to my good and trusty dried beef cheese ball recipe!

Quick Pour Fondant Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Used this on one of the yellow cake recipes from here. The temperature is the key to getting it just right. I liked the smooth shiny tops it made on my cupcakes!

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Very light and tasty...will cut back on the sugar the next time I make this recipe as it was a bit sweet for my taste. I used oil instead of shortening as suggested and I added about 1/4 cup more milk too. I made cupcakes (24) which baked with a dome top that was perfect for a poured fondant recipe I found here on allrecipes.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I have this same recipe only halved in portions, but I don't add cloves or ginger. They are delicious and the best molasses cookie I've ever eaten! They are very good frozen with a cup of hot coffee!

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Fabulous recipe! I never put a turkey in a brine solution before, but now it will be the only way I prepare my turkey. I let mine set in the brine for 12 hours and it was perfect!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Not a fan of the sweetness of this recipe and I attribute that to the large amount of vanilla extract as my old faithful Hershey's recipe, of almost 25 years, uses 3/4 cups of brown and white sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla and they are never too sweet. I do like the texture and the way these cookies hold-up. I did not melt the butter, but softened it instead as melting the butter makes my cookies spread too much for my taste and I added 1 teaspoon of baking soda instead of the 1/2 tsp. called for in the recipe. I made these with a medium Pampered Chef scoop instead of the large called for in the recipe. I may make these again with less vanilla. I still think the Hershey's recipe, on the bag, is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe though.

Golden Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
I used one cream of celery and one can of cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom as a family member does not care for them. This dish had a fantastic taste! I served four chops with eggs noodles...poured some of the soup on top..delicious!

Corn Casserole III

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Another family fav! I use two creamed corn cans instead of one regular and one creamed can of corn. I think it makes it more creamy in texture.

New York Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Great recipe! Just be sure to not over beat the batter as that can cause cracks on top. I made three of these for a mother/daughter banquet and they all came out perfectly!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
This is the best peanut butter cookie recipe ever! I use my medium Pampered Chef cookie scoop to get perfectly shaped cookies every time. They spread a bit upon cooking and make a large cookie also.
