Almond Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This was delicious! I think my boyfriend ate half of it in one sitting! I didn't have a bundt pan so I used two loaf pans and it turned out fine. So yummy!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This was really good. I only had large loaf pans so my loaves turned out really small. Next time I will multiply the recipe to 1 1/2 times to get bigger loaves.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II

OMG! This was so good. I added 2 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon. I used my pampered chef stoneware pans and the crust was fantastic!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
I gave it four stars only because I adjusted the recipe to fit what I had in my cupboard. I used half whole wheat flour and double the milk to get the consistency I wanted. They were delicious!

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
I guess I better carve out the extra time each weekend to make these loaves! I don't think we'll be buying quite as much bread at the grocery store. This recipe was fantastic! I baked them in my stoneware loaf pans from pampered chef which are well worth the 19.50 each. They give the bread a crispier crust. 8/25/10 Still love this recipe but have to leave the bread in the full 35 minutes and sometimes longer to ensure it is not doughy in the middle. This is a common issue I have with stoneware. However, the crust is totally worth it. 4/12/11 I now double the recipe to make two loaves which extends the baking time to 55 - 60 minutes. I also increase the sugar to 2 Tbl and use 1 cup of regular milk in place of the evaporated milk. Also, tonight I punched out the dough in a square, sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar and raisins and rolled up. Then I placed it in my bread pan and let rise as usual. It was AWESOME!

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Delicious on lamb chops too! Just sear in the pan and broil the crust for one minute in the oven. No need to bake them.

Candy Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with mushy pecans. I am not sure what happened as most recipes I try turn out.

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Lol... these turned out really good but I altered them a bit. Not because the recipe didn't sound good but because I suddenly felt creative while I was making them. Here's what I did: substituted 3/4c of the flour with whole wheat flour; used raspberries instead of blueberries, and topped each muffin with a dollop of cream cheese before they went into the oven. Delicious!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I love these brownies. I didn't change anything in the recipe and they turned out great. Rich, Fudgey and delicious! 04/23/09 Now I make a double batch and bake them for 35 minutes so they are thick and gooey.

Creme Brulee II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This is the first time I have ever made creme brulee. I gave this a four because I, like others, altered the recipe. After reading the other reviews and recipes on other web sites, I used 1/2 cup sugar and 8 egg yolks. The recipe turned out divine. I was happy I attempted it!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
This is a great pie recipe but here are a couple of tips: Add about a half a tsp of cinnamon, a few dashes of nutmeg and a tsp of vanilla to the warm mixture after it's cooked. Make sure to slice the apples into slices no bigger than 1/4 inch. Also, omit the water.

Broccoli Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
This time when I made this, I used the top round steak and added a little sesame oil. My boyfriend ate all of it! I didn't even get one bite. 11/08 I made this again and next time i will definitely marinate the meat like other reviewers have done. The meat was very inexpensive resulting in a chewy texture but the flavor was great. This is a favorite.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
I love these cinnamon rolls. I have been making them for years. Like others, I do not use a bread machine; just combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined, then turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. They come out delicious everytime!
