Perfectly Roasted Vegetable

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
This is wonderful. I changed out a couple of the veggies and also added some sweet potatoes (did not omit the white potatoes). Very good and perfectly baked. Nice texture and nice carmelization. @ cookin grams - You should have your oven checked out if burnt to a crisp. Also, when baking something like this you should watch carefully toward end of time. This is good. I would advise you to try again.

Jan's Crumb Topping or Streusel

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
I have been looking for this type of streusel topping for quite a while. My grand-mother used to make the best topping and this is as close as I am going to get. She taught me how to make many recipes, but for some reason, the streusel was not one of them. Thanks for a great recipe.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
These scones are fabulous and I make them often. I add dried cranberries along with orange zest. That is the way my family likes them best, although I have added raisins and cinnamon, etc. I found cutting these into 12 scones made them WAY too large. I form my dough into 3 equal discs, then roll each one out, cutting each disc into 8 equal triangles. Use a large pizza cutter for fast work. Then bake as stated, perhaps a bit shorter time. Once they cool completely, I make a thin glaze using powdered sugar and some orange juice and drizzle over the tops. I also like to add a bit of orange zest to the glaze. The nice thing about these scones is that they freeze "great" and you can pull out as many as you want to thaw. This is much easier than freezing them raw, then baking a few each time you want some, as one other reviewer suggested.

Precious Pineapple Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
This cake is the perfect dessert for company. After reading all the reviews and seeing the complaints about the 3 layers being too thin, this is what I did. Using the regular box cake, I also added a small box (Jiffy - 1 layer cake mix) to the batter. Of course, had to add more of the other ingredients. 3/4 cup butter, 5 eggs, 1 1/2 cans crushed pineapple and 3/4 cup pecans. ( toasted the pecans first for a really good flavor). I DID NOT increase the frosting and seemed to have just the right amount. Then baked in 3 pans. The cake was beautiful, nice high layers and presented well.

Caramel Pound Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
C'mon folks, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to make this recipe. It is simple. Starting from the first ingredient, 2 1/4 cups brown sugar - down thru the pecans belong in the cake. The remaining ingredients are for the icing. As for the cake....it is delicious and I will make again. My friends loved it.

Sliced Tomatoes with Fresh Herb Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
This is fabulous. You MUST use fresh herbs and not the dried stuff. I also purchased fresh mozzarella balls from my local Italian grocery store....sliced the cheese and added to this salad. Other than that, I followed the recipe "as is". My guests loved it and could not get enough of it. Very Yummmmmmy!!!!!!!!!!

Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
These cookies are great and very moist. I have made them two times. The first time I baked them exactly as the recipe was written and the family really liked them. The second time I made them, I added two to three big handfulls of dried cranberries (and still topped with the icing) and my family just loved them this way. We love anything pumpkin and I will be making these often.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
This cake was delicious. I took it to work and not one crumb was left. At Alex - your cake was flat. Check the expiration dates on your baking powder and baking soda. If it is near expiration or past, you need to throw it away and buy new. Your cakes will not raise unless these two items are "good".

Marzetti® Hawaiian Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
I made this for a church picnic. WOW, it went fast. I doubled the recipe, used golden raisins and added dried cranberries, along with the pineapple, coconut, and chopped almonds. Now here is my secret. I made my own Mango Poppy Seed dressing. To die for!!!!!!!!! Yummy and I brought home a very large empty aluminum pan.

Ricotta Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2013
This is a yummy cake. I made it twice. The first time I followed it to a "T". The second time I also followed the recipe BUT made my own home made ricotta cheese (found on this site). It was even better the second time. The home made ricotta is simple to make. You may want to try it the next time you bake this cake.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
I have made these numerous times. I do change up the recipe a bit. I use half white and half whole wheat flour. I cut the sugar back to just 1 cup and again use half white and half brown sugar. I do like the apple butter in the recipe. Sometimes when I have applesauce in my fridge, I will replace that for the 1/4 cup of oil. Also, depending on what I have on hand, I sometimes replace the toasted wheat germ with milled flax seed. These are a great breakfast muffin and I always double the recipe. They freeze so well and I can pull out as many as needed and just let thaw. I recommend that you try these. I can almost guarantee that you will like them.

Rachel's Cranberry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
I made this for a ladies luncheon at church. Kept to the recipe exactly except I tripled the recipe. (Used a prepared chicken from Sam's) Instead of taking it in a bowl, I used a cookie scoop and placed a scoop of the salad in mini cupcake papers and placed on a tray. So pretty to display them that way and since there was so much other food there, this was a perfect amount for each lady. Thanks for a very good recipe.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2014
These are not hash browns. This is a recipe that has been in my family for generations. I learned how to make them from my German Grandmother. They are called potato pancakes and are delicious served with apple sauce. I still make them on occasion although I now fry them in canola oil rather than the Crisco she used back then. I am now 70 and have handed down the recipe to my 3 children and my older grand children. Enjoy them everyone regardless of what they are called.

Lemon Freeze Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
I have made been making this for years. I have never used fruit cocktail. I prefer to use blueberries. Be sure your berries are well drained AND dried. (Paper towels will do the trick). There is nothing better than lemon and blueberries. This recipe is requested over and over again and I am always happy to make it.

Rainbow Cupcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
I made these cupcakes for a family cook-out. After reading all the reviews and seeing the complaints about them being dry, I simply used a white box cake mix and tinted them per this recipe. No problem with dryness and everyone (especially the kids) loved the different colors.

Strawberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
These were very good. The only suggestion I would make is to make them with blueberries (which I did). There is nothing like the combination of blueberries and lemon.

Three-Ingredient Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
I made this pretty much according to recipe. I did use frozen Italian style green beans (which I blanched and then cooled in ice water) instead of the canned. Also, after reading the other reviews, I cut back a bit on the dressing. This dish was well received by my guests.

Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
I made this for a salad I was taking to a pot luck church picnic. My salad called for "Mango PoppySeed dressing. I KNEW I was not going to find it in my area, so looked up this recipe. I made the dressing, adding a large mango to the mix before I put in blender. It was fantastic. I did cut back on the amount of oil, and used white wine vinegar, but other than that, made as stated.

Happy Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
I make this quite often as my family really enjoys it. My only change is I add fresh herbs (Italian parsley, basil and sage - all fresh from my garden) under the skin when I do the step with the butter being placed under the skin. So yummy.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
This recipe sounds wonderful and has so many fantastic reviews. I do have a question and would like to know if this could possibly be done with just chicken breasts? No one in my family will eat the dark meat. I thought perhaps just do "bone in breasts" with the spices and put onions and garlic in the bag while marinating. Then slow cook the breasts in the oven as the recipe states to do with the whole chicken. If anyone has tried this or has any ideas on cooking the breasts, please advise. Thank you for your help.
