Sour Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
This was really simple and went great with fruit & whipped cream. My yellow cake mix had pudding in it so I made the recipe exactly as written. The recipe is a little confusing because you do also add eggs, oil and water per the directions on the boxed mix. Flavor was wonderful & my guests begged for the recipe!

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
Best cinnamon rolls I've ever made! After the bread machine cycle was done, I formed the rolls, covered with plastic wrap & put in the fridge. Next morning, brought to room temp, put in a 100 degree oven to rise for 20-30 minutes, then baked. Cut brown sugar in the filling by 1/4 cup, used half white whole wheat flour and added 2 tsp. wheat germ & 2 tsp. ground flax to help lower the glycemic index a bit. FABULOUS!!!

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
I had some asparagus that had partially frozen in my fridge. I almost threw it out, but decided to try this recipe instead. My hubby & kids don't like asparagus, but they tasted the soup & said it was really good. That's a glowing review for them! I followed others suggestions, used stock instead of water, used only 2 cups of milk (which I forgot to warm, but it worked fine) and only added 1 Tbsp. of soy sauce. Turned out great! Served with sourdough grilled cheese & turkey sandwiches and everyone loved it!

Basic British Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I'm a southern girl, but since I tried this recipe I haven't made my southern biscuits at all! These have a great texture, a nice but not overpowering sweetness...yum!

Savory Cheddar Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
A new family favorite! I used buttermilk instead of regular and 2 tsp. minced garlic from a jar. I also used a cheddar/jack mix of cheeses. After reading other reviews that they stuck to the papers, I made them without. They turned out great! I've got zucchini coming out of my garden like crazy, so I'm planning to make several batches & freeze them!

Hearty Turkey Soup with Parsley Dumplings

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Great recipe! I've used leftover rotisserie chicken as well and the whole family loves it. I did saute' all the veggies first in olive oil. My family is picky about celery especially, so I wanted to make sure it was well cooked. Overall great recipe!

Sparkling Holiday Jam

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
This was really thin when I put it in the jars & I was afraid it wouldn't set, but it turned out great. I used some glass jars & some plastic. I boiled the glass ones full of jam like the recipe says, but didn't boil the plastic & they still turned out fine. Added orange zest & juice of one orange. This is by far one of the best jams I've had! Not too sweet, but plenty of flavor & texture. I made toast at 9 pm last night just to try it out!

Mom's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 because I had to alter a little based on other reviews. Increased baking soda to 1/2 tsp, baking pwd. to 1 1/2 tsp, and buttermilk to 1 cup. Used butter flavored shortening & 1/2 white whole wheat flour & the taste was great!!! My husband said they're better than his mom's, so THANK YOU!!!!!!!! Only made 10 biscuits as I rolled out 3/4 inch thick.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
This recipe turned out ok, but not very moist. I used the butter recipe like suggested, but still not great. I like a lot of the brown sugar/butter topping & this didn't really do it for me.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
A good way to use up extra zucchini, but they are definitely more cake than brownie. I made these just as the recipe says, and they turned out good, just not extra moist & dense like I want a brownie. Like other reviewers, I was tempted to add oil or eggs because the batter was so dry, but once I added the zucchini & mixed it for a minute, it turned into normal batter. With the frosting this makes an excellent cake though, and my hubby didn't even notice the zucchini.

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
I've tried lots of pancake recipes, but none have ever been requested twice by my picky family. These are now the only recipe we make. If I don't have buttermilk, I make my own, but I pretty much just keep it on hand now because these are requested so often! I use white whole wheat flour & add 1 tsp. vanilla & they turn out great!
