Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
These cookies are delicious! However, I think the glaze is a little to much.

Barbecued Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
This was great! The brisket came out moist and tender. I used the advice from other members and cooked the brisket on low for 8 hours as opposed to on high for 5 hours. The only thing I will do differently next time is to use less chili sauce and add 1 cup of bbq sauce!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!
