Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
Just had this for dinner tonight. Made exactly as written and it was awesome! The only problem I had was that my sauce did not thicken but it was still delicious, I will just add the cream more slowly next time. Served it over basmati rice and even my picky 8 year old loved it. As an added bonus, my house smells divine. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I was looking up this recipe to fix for my daughter's birthday and could not believe I have never rated it! This is my favorite "go to" chocolate cake recipe. It always comes out moist, is super simple to make and has a very rich flavor. The coffee gives it just a hint of extra kick flavor-wise. I get great compliments on it every time I make it. If you want a simple but foolproof and impressive chocolate cake, you can't go wrong with this one! Thank so much for sharing!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
By far the best sugar cookies ever! I followed the recipe exactly and these cookies came out so beautifully they looked ready for a photo shoot. Everyone loved them, I gave them out to neighbors and friends for holiday gifts. Sprinkle them while hot with a little colored sugar if you want it to stick! Love this recipe, thank you for sharing!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Very good! Easy and I I had the ingredients on hand. I used the entire batch for a little over a pound of hamburger and added 2/3 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of sour cream and let it all simmer until the water cooked away. Definitely much better than store bought. Thanks for the recipe.

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Well, I cheated and used a store bought crust but the filling was really good. I have never made pecan pie before and I thought the overall taste was great. Just a word of advice, if you like the gooey part of the pie better than the pecan part, you will probably want to look somewhere else or decrease the amount of pecans used. The filling also does need some vanilla, I added 1 teaspoon but 2 would have been even better. Being a pecan lover myself, I will keep this pie recipe in my box. Thanks for sharing.

Key Lime Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
This cake was a huge hit with the family as a birthday cake! I used Patty W's recipe for a sauce over the cake while it was still hot. 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 stick butter and 1/4 cup fresh key lime juice, simmered for 4 to 5 minutes. Then I used the glaze recommended with the recipe to top the cake once it was cool. This resulted in an extremely lime-ish and moist cake. I will say that I think the actual juice from key limes makes all the difference but it takes quite a few to get that much juice. I used a whole bag, and it contained at least 15 key limes. I will be making this again, thanks for sharing the recipe!!

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
This was my first time making mousse and I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of this recipe. I did expect the chocolate mixture to fluff up on it's own but maybe it is not supposed to. Once you combine the whipped cream and chocolate mixtures, the flavor and consistency is really great. I did put the chocolate layer in the freezer for about five minutes, stirred and returned to the freezer for another five as suggested by another reviewer instead of putting it on ice. I also found that whipping the finished product with a hand mixer after chilling made it fluffier for serving. In fact, I used a hand mixer for the whole recipe rather than using a whisk. I topped this with sweetened homemade whipped cream before serving. Thanks for sharing!! I will be making this one again.

Vanilla Ice Cream VI

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
I have to give this one 5 stars because it was probably the easiest ice cream I have ever made. The flavor was very vanilla-ish and the texture was just like I remember from my grandparents homemade ice cream. I did sustitute fat free half and half for the water but other than that followed the recipe exactly. Thank you so much for sharing this, I know I will make it again.

Chocolate Sheet Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
I made this cake in a 9x13 inch pan and it turned out very well, even though I had to bake it for almost 40 minutes. I liked the flavor but the texture was a little less moist than I would have preferred. This may of course be because I did not use the correct pan size. I will try it again with the correct pan in the future. It was a breeze to make for a "made from scratch" recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Caribbean Rum Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
Great recipe! For anyone who may need a bit of clarification (like me), here is what I discovered. It takes about 6 limes to get a cup of juice. You can make simple syrup by heating equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Simple syrup and bitters can also be purchased rather inexpensively at the liquor store. I used Meyers dark rum and grated about a half teaspoon of fresh nutmeg over the top of the whole batch and stirred it in. The punch has a really wonderful flavor and a bit of a delayed effect so watch out! Thanks for sharing, I will be making this again.

Mushroom Sauce Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
This was a great one dish meal. The end result was plenty salty so taste before you salt at the table. I really loved the potatoes and the meat was very tender. All you need is a green veggie and maybe some bread to help sop up the gravy and you have a filling and easy meal. Thank you for sharing!

Banana Cake V

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I was not overly thrilled with this recipe. Maybe I did something wrong because it took forever to bake in my oven and the outside turned out hard while the inside was too moist. The flavor was ok but not especially sweet or banana-ish for a cake. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

Creamy Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I was looking for a new one dish chicken meal because I was tired of everything I usually do with chicken and I am so glad I tried this one. I did not have any garlic powder so I used 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic instead. I also used yellow (saffron) rice because I did not have enough white rice. I was so thrilled with the results and was surprised at how you could taste all of the individual ingredients so well. I made about half again the amount of topping listed and I loved the result. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Herb Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
This recipe is so easy and sooo delicious. I find myself making oven baked potatoes just so I can use this butter. It is good on fresh baked bread too and I have even used it to make quesadillas and grilled cheese sandwiches. I always make a double batch because anybody who tries it wants to take some home. Thanks for sharing!

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
I made a double batch of these and ended up freezing about 8 for breakfast later this week. After reading other reviews I too added 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the double batch. This recipe is awesome and not at all mushy in my opinion. Next time I will probably add some toasted walnuts or pecans just for variety but they are definitely not required to make these pancakes great. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Seriously great cornbread. I always make my Grandma's recipe and she is the best cook and baker I know. This one called for sugar so I decided to give it a try as a change of pace. I am glad I did. I did cut the sugar to 1/3 cup after reading the other reviews. I have a very large cast iron skillet so I melted the butter in the skillet in the preheated oven, mixed everything else together in a separate bowl and poured it all on top of the melted butter in the hot skillet before baking. The result was a very buttery, slightly crispy edged cornbread that went very well with chili. It is also very good reheated. Thank you for the recipe!

Buzzsaw's BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I made this to go with some pulled pork BBQ and it came out great. I liked having a recipe that did not have to sit for hours or days before using. I thought that the ketchup was a bit overwhelming but my husband said he loved it just like it was. I will make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I rate this one five stars because the end result was delicious. I sauteed my onion (finely chopped) in butter before adding it to the potatoes and used only half the amount called for in the recipe because my hubby is not a big fan of onions. I think this helped to mellow the flavor somewhat. The sauce took a very long time to thicken but turned out great in the end. These were a big hit with Christmas dinner and make good leftovers too. Thanks for sharing.

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This recipe was super easy and fast. The batter was very thin and runny but the pancakes cooked up fine anyway. The whole family thought the taste was great. Thanks for sharing a simple and good basic pancake recipe.
