Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2002
This was the first Key Lime Pie I've ever made and it turned out really good. My 5 year old daughter just loved it! So did everyone else. I added a few drops of green food coloring, too. Very pretty pie, until my daughter stuck her fingers in it to taste it! Thanks Irene! Great recipe! By the way, Irene, are you by any chance related to Leonardo DiCaprio?

Buttermilk Ranch Cheeseball

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
I just made this recipe for our cozy New Year's Eve tomorrow night and for our New Year's Day party. I did add a few things like some others suggested. I very rarely make a recipe without tweaking it in some way, so I hope no offense to Castoways, who posted the original recipe. For starters, I doubled the recipe. With that in mind, I added in 2 tablespoons of dried onions, a teaspoon of garlic powder, fresh ground pepper and roughly 4 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce, maybe more. The worchestershire sauce really completed this recipe. It added that little extra something that I thought it needed. I made 2 logs and then rolled them in toasted pecans. This made a delicious cheese spread and is exactly what I was looking for. My family will go nuts over it. I'll be using this recipe again. Thank you so much!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
These were so good and so simple to put together. Perfect easy dessert for a cold winter night. I've also used peaches and pears. I usually use Ginger Ale as that's normally the kind of soda I have on hand. Whole family loves them!

Peanut Butter Pie VII

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
The recipe I have is a little different, mine calling for 4 egg yokes, but I added 1/4 cup peanut butter to the custard after it was cooked to give it more of a peanut butter taste. It was delicious! I also do not like meringue at all, so I used whipped cream (can use cool whip) to top the pie with and then sprinked the peanut butter/confectioners sugar on top. It was out of this world! If you are a peanut butter lover like I am, you will love this pie! Also, I made my pie with a home made graham cracker crust. This pie is addicting!

Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
Just made this recipe yesterday and the first loaf was gone in no time! This is a delicious recipe, even without the maraschino cherries that I left out. Excellent tasting, addicting, hard to leave alone banana bread that I'm sure we'll fight over to the last crumb. Thanks for a such a yummy recipe, Saundra!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Awesome cookies! I love soft, chewy peanut butter cookies and the oatmeal in these cookies really made them extra good. I made half the batch as is and the second half I added peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. I also added some extra oatmeal, which didn't hurt them at all. They are a hit and my whole family loves them. Thanks so much!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I had not had pancakes in a long, long time, so I went searching for a recipe and decided on this one. They were wonderful! One bite and my dad made a loud, "Mmmmmm!" I added a few chocolate chips to my daughter's and she loves them, too. Really enjoyed these pancakes and will definitely make them again. Thanks so much, Eugene.

Kosher Salt Encrusted Prime Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
I baked mine at a higher temperature, but ours turned out really good. I coated the meat with kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and fresh garlic and then wrapped the meat up plastic wrap over-night. Would definitely make again. I will also try this with other kinds of roasts. It was a little salty on the ends for my parents, but otherwise very good. You've made me unafraid to make Prime Rib now! Thanks for a good recipe, Holly.

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

These are the best Peanut Butter Cookies that I've ever made. They are so moist and delicious! I always add chocolate chips and peanut butter chips to them. My daughter loves them! Thanks for sharing this great recipe, Cindy. =)

Quacker Jack

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2001
This was really good popcorn. I didn't bake it as long as it called for, but it turned out just fine. Very tasty! I think there might be an error in the listing of 2 cups of Oil...I did NOT use that much oil to pop the popcorn in. I used my Stir-Crazy popper instead of using a pot to pop it in, and 1 cup of unpopped popcorn made plenty. I also added a teaspoon a vanilla when I added the baking soda. Thanks Yvonne...you've given me something new to make now. :O)

Almond Buttercrunch Candy I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2001
December 19, 2012: Over the years of making this candy, I have simplified everything. No longer do I put chocolate on the bottom. I now use 3 cups of toasted nuts & this year I used a combo of cashews, almonds & pecans. In past years, I've used white chocolate & cashews, which has become a family favorite. This year, I used Lindt 90% Dark Chocolate Bars. After I poured the hot nut filled toffee out on a parchement paper lined cookie sheet, I laid the bars down on top & they melted like butter. Next I melted Lindt White Coconut Chocolate & flung it over the dark, melted chocolate. I used a tooth pick to score back & forth across the chocolate, which made a beautiful pattern. The less sweet dark chocolate pared well with the toffee, which is plenty sweet enough & this creation is yet another favorite of mine. The possibilities are endless! Enjoy & have fun being creative!

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2001
Oh my, was this ever good. I've got a sweet tooth and didn't feel it was sweet enough for me, so I added some extra sugar. Everyone loved it!!! We've got ample Apricots available right now, so I thought I would try it with them and again, it turned out great. Thanks for sharing.

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2001
This was really good. The best I've tried. It turned out creamy and yummy and my daughter made me set some aside for her lunch tomorrow. The only thing I did different was to add a little chopped onion. What a terrific way to use up left-over ham. I also liked that it had 3 different kinds of cheese.

Dry Rub for Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2001
This was very good. I added about a 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder to the mix. I rubbed it on steaks and everyone loved it. This was my first attempt using a dry rub and I was very pleased. I'll be using this again.

Great Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
I read some of the suggestions shared for this recipe, so I added a full cup of butter, and like some others had done, I cut the butter into the cake mix instead of melting it. I also added cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ground ginger and cloves to the cake mix. The house smelled absolutely heavenly while baking and really brought the Autumn season to life. It is delicious and my whole family keeps digging a spoon into it every time they pass through the kitchen. I am going to have to put it out of sight to keep them out of it. Thanks for the recipe, Nancy!

Buttermilk Biscuits I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2001
Last night I was looking for a simple recipe for biscuits and I found a winner. I didn't have self-rising flour, so I used regular flour and added one cup of bisquick to it. I also added a little extra sugar. Be sure when you are rolling the dough out you don't roll it too thin, as your biscuits won't be as fluffy. I also drizzled a little butter over the top before baking and they came out wonderful. I was very pleased with them, as I have been known to bake hockey pucks.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2001
This was delicious. I only had one can of cream of mushroom, so I added a can of beef broth. I also added sliced onions. What could be better on a cold, rainy night. My family loved it!

Tiger Butter III

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2000
I made this for Christmas to give as gifts, but there wasn't any left, so I had to make another batch. It's really good. I added some peanut butter chips along with the butterscotch chips and it turned out great. I think I'll be making this throughout the year. Thanks Mary Ann.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2001
I had an idea of the kind of dish I wanted to fix, so this is what I did. I cut up 2 chicken breasts into chunks and sauteed them until done in a pan. I added steamed broccoli and 2 sliced green onions to the chicken and then poured this Alfredo sauce over it. I doubled the sauce. I didn't use as much parmeasan, but I did thicken the sauce slightly with a little flour and water. It was DELICIOUS and there was hardly any left overs. I also didn't use the heavy cream, but I used half and half instead. I've finally found the Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo I've been looking for and it's as good as anything you'll ever get in a restaurant. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
Wow, these cookies are really good! I doubled the recipe because in our family, the first dozen is gone right off the bat and the original recipe said it made 2 to 3 dozen...not nearly enough for us. I used parchment paper like others said to do, and I could tell they would stick if you didn't. I scraped the melted toffee off the spatula after each batch because if I didn't, it would mess up the next batch of cookies. Also, even though I doubled the recipe, I only used an 8 oz bag of toffee bits and that seemed to be enough. I also added in a small amouth of dark chocolate chips. And, as another reviewer said, I added a small amount of butter flavored crisco in with real butter to make softer cookies. The flavor of these cookies is wonderful and I'll definitely be making these again! Thanks for such an awesome recipe, Lori!
