Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
This recipe was so easy and the muffins were sooo good! I made them exactly as written. It does make about 12 muffins with a lot of topping but who am I to complain :-) My whole family loved them and it is nice to have hot, fresh, homemade muffins in about 30 minutes. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I would definitely recommend making these for your next breakfast! I think I may add some nuts next time.

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
These came better than I expected! I followed the recipe except I didn't have any taco sauce to I just used taco seasoning with water. They were not crisping as fast as I wanted them too so I put them under the broiler for a few minutes and that did the trick!. My 3 girls all loved them too, definitely a keeper. I can't wait to try them with different filling. Thanks for the recipe.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
This was really quick, easy and very flavorful. I made it for a potluck family reunion and it went fast! I followed the recipe exactly and the only complaint that I have is that it made quite a bit of dressing. I think I will lessen it next time. It tastes better the next day after sitting in the dressing. This is definitely a keeper!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
These came out really good and my hubby can't wait for me to make them again. They are a bit time consuming, dipping them in the chocolate, but they are worth it. I let the cake cool before I added the frosting like another reviewer had suggested. These would make a great addition to my cookie trays I give out at Christmas.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Just made these for a New Years Brunch tomorrow and they are yummy! I followed the advice of one user and used 2 tsp of water and 1 tsp of vanilla. The rest I followed the recipe. They came out great and my house smells wonderful. The only problem I have is not eating them all before tomorrow. I may be making another batch :o)

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
OMG!!! This recipe should come with a warning label that reads highly addictive! It is so easy and it tastes so much better than any you can buy. Like others suggested, I used only 1/2 cup butter and it was plenty. I popped two bags of the 94% Fat Free Microwave popcorn(that is all I had on hand) and I also used Safeway brand brown sugar. I was afraid when I took it out of the oven and it was sticky. I baked it in two 9"x13" glass dishes sprayed with Pam. When I took it out of the oven after the hour was up, I spread it out on a jelly roll pan and kind of separated it a bit while it was warm. After it cooled, it was perfect! Just make sure you stir it up every 15 minutes like the recipe says. Next time, I am going to add peanuts or almonds. This would be great to give away at the holidays. Thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe!

Spaghetti Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Good starting point but I added sauteed onions, garlic and Montreal Steak Seasoning to my meat before adding the pasta sauce. I also added a can of diced tomatoesit didn't seem like there was enough sauce. I liked the flavor the sour cream and cream cheese gave it. Good alternative if you don't have Ricotta on hand. Next time, I may use two jars of sauce. All in all, it was an easy dish to make and the family liked it.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Wow, this was awesome! It was so easy to prepare that I didn't have high hopes but I was wrong. The flavor was great. I used about two cups of spiral ham left over from Christmas and almost 4 cups of russet potatoes. I didn't have celery so I didn't add that and I used Fat Free milk which is what I had on hand. It took less than 30 minutes to make and it was a great soup that even my 3 picky kids gobbled up. I will definitely be making this soup again. Thank you for sharing this great, easy recipe.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
I was excited to make these from all the good reviews it received. I made them over Thanksgiving break and we didn't care for them. Even my husband who loves pumpkin didn't care for these. I followed the recipe exactly too. They were too "cakey" were my husbands words. Maybe they would have been better with the icing but alone, they were not very good. Sorry, but I will continue to look for a recipe for a pumpkin cookie that we like.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
OMG! These are the best pancakes ever! I made these today for the first time as I have been wanting to make buttermilk pancakes. Well, I found my recipe. I mixed the milk, buttermilk and eggs and let them come to room temperature first like other reviewers suggested. The store only had reduced fat buttermilk and I had fat free milk but the taste was still fantastic! You couldn't even tell I used low fat ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect. A little crispy around the edges and soft and fluffy in the middle. It did make more then 12, and mine were about 6" around, but that didn't matter as they were getting eaten up as soon as they came off the griddle. I will definitely make these again and again.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
I just finished making these cookies and they are so good. I used a bit more peanut butter, just to finish up what I had left and about 1/4 cups more oats. I also used unsalted butter, I never use margarine in my baking. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. They only took 10 minutes to cook. Don't be tempted to overcook them. You have to cool them completely on the cookie sheet because if you try and take them off before than, they break apart. These are definitely going into my cookie rotation.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
I was a little disappointed in this cake after reading all the positive reviews. I made this cake and followed the instructions to the letter. I checked it after 1 hour and it wasn't done so I let it go the last 20 minutes. The whole bottom of the cake burned. I cut off the burned part and ate the rest with ice cream. It had okay flavor but nothing spectacular. I will still be searching for the perfect pound cake.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
Just finished making these and they came out great! My 3 kids loved them and they don't like coconut. I only had sweetened coconut flakes and they still came out good. I followed the recipe exactly but added a few chocolate chips to some of the batter. I will definitely make again. The only complaint is that it didn't make enough ;-)

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
These really do melt in your mouth. They were easy to make and didn't last very long in my house. Next time, I think I will dip the tops in melted chocolate.

Double Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
I have been wanting to make a homemade chocolate pie for some time now and thought this was the recipe. I followed it exactly and it was awful. I was surprised because most of the recipes I use from this site are great. I was disappointed with this one. First off, it didn't set at all. When I cut into it, it oozed all over and it looked terrible. Second, it had way too much vanilla. I had a feeling when I was adding it that it was going to be too much and I was right. I guess I will have to continue my search for a good chocolate pie recipe. Sorry.

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
I have made this pie two times now and am just getting around to rating it. I am not a fan of pumpkin pie but I can eat this one. It has more of a "mousse-like" filling, not as dense as your regular pumpkin pie. I made this for my husbands work and it was a hit. I followed the recipe to a tee, all except the crust. I used a graham cracker crust and it was great! Thank you for sharing.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
Finally I have found the perfect recipe for lemon meringue pie! I made this tonight for my dad and it came out great. The only thing that I wasn't clear on was the amount of lemon juice to use. 2 lemons can mean different things to different people. I used 1/2 cup of lemon juice(about 3 lemons) and 1 tablespoon of zest. It was the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Also, it doesn't mention how to cool it. I left it at room temperature for about an hour and then put it in the refrigerator for about 5 hours. One tip I have is after the lemon filling starts to boil, only boil it for 1 minute so the cornstarch doesn't lose its thickening power. Then, after you add the tempered eggs back into the hot mixture, boil one more minute and it will be a perfect thickness. Also, when you fill the pie crust with the lemon filling, the crust should still be warm and when you top the pie with the meringue, the filling should still be pretty warm. This will help seal the meringue after it cools so it doesn't separate from the crust. I will definitely keep this recipe and I have a feeling I will be making this again very soon.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
I never knew I liked key lime pie until I made my own. This is super easy and oh so good! I made my own graham cracker crust, topped it off with homemade whipped cream and it was excellent. I had to cook it longer than the stated time but it was well worth it. Very simple and tastes like you slaved in the kitchen all day. My husband and neighbors loved it. Thanks for sharing.

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
I was looking for a quick chicken marinade with ingredients I had on hand. I didn't have a lot of time to marinade it like most recipes call for. This was a great recipe! It had good flavor and I had everything on hand. The only things I changed were to used ground ginger, I added extra garlic(we love garlic) and some sliced onions. I used three big Costco chicken breast, butterflied and this was the perfect amount of marinade. I put all the ingredients into a freezer bag and put the chicken in the bag and into the fridge for about 3 hours, turning it every so often. It was so juicy and had really good flavor. My husband grilled it for about 4 minutes on each side and it came out perfect! It was even good the next day heated in the microwave on 50% over white rice. Not dry at all. Thanks for sharing. This will definitely be going into our monthly rotation.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Wow, I never knew crepes could be so easy to make. These came out so good and they were very easy to make. I put some Nutella spread on them, fresh strawberries and topped it off with homemade whip cream, chocolate sauce and powdered sugar. They were a huge hit!
