Sweet Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
WOW. I have tried a lot of banana bread recipes and this one takes the cake...or loaf as it were. :-) The only change was I used banana pudding -the instant kind as I couldn't find any non-instant banana. To compensate for the thickness I added more milk (buttermilk actually) about 1/4 cup. I also had to cook much longer -about an hour and a half total, covering after about 40 minutes so as not to burn. Next time I will try making muffins instead and see if that cuts down the cook time. A wonderfully moist, sweeter (which I like) recipe. A++

Texas Sheet Cake II

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
All I can say is WOW. I have never made a chocolate cake from scratch before so I don't have much to compare to, but after this recipe I wouldn't bother to find another. The only things I did differnt is that I cut the recipe in half (to serve a smaller crowd) and put in a 11x7 pan and baked for the same amount of time and used buttermilk instead of reg milk in the frosting. It was so moist and chocolaty....The only thing I might try different is to throw some mini choc chips in as well just to differ the texture and add more chocolate. My friends gave it 3 thumbs up and couldn't believe I made it from scratch! Thanks for the amazing recipe! ~

Blueberry Waffles with Fast Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
The waffles were a 2 star but the sauce was a definate 4.5! I can't tell what made the waffles so mediocre. Maybe some vanilla and a bit of sugar would help? But the sauce was definately awesome. I also used frozen organic blueberries since the fresh ones are out of season. I will probably find an alternate waffle recipe but still use the sauce.

The Best Meatloaf I've Ever Made

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
I thought this was a good base recipe. I adjusted the recipe slightly to make it 5 star. I used 1.5 lbs ground beef and the other half pound I used ground pork. A little extra cracker crumbs and a squirt of BBQ sauce in the meat mixture...and it's meatloaf heaven!

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2006
I thought this was a great recipe! Mine worked out just fine in terms of moisture etc... I did add an extra tsp of sugar (I have a sweet tooth) and used a can less 1/3 cup of coconut milk. (the 1/3 cup went towards the main dish I served with this rice which was South of the Sea Chicken and Bananas - fabulous combination!) and I added a touch more water in it's place. The coconut was very subtle but made the rice very rich tasting. I also added a little butter after it was cooked. The leftovers made a great rice and milk cereal dish (add milk to cover and microwave until the rice absorbs it, add more milk and serve as breakfast..sweeten to taste) All around YUM!

South Of The Sea Chicken and Bananas

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2006
I had to try this recipe, as it sounded so....well...wierd! I am glad I did. It was very different and exotic tasting. I crushed the cornflakes but will crush them even finer next time as they were a little too pronounced after baking, and I will do less bananas as the recipe didn't need that much to get the full banana taste. I also substituted coconut milk instead of the regular milk. I served mine with sliced kiwi and pineapple tidbits, and the Asian Coconut Rice from this site (which works out perfectly to use up the remainder of the can of coconut milk). Thank you for this outrageously different recipe!

Cream Cheese, Garlic, and Chive Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
This recipe has many great possibilities. 5 stars to the cook who suggested wrapping in puff pastry!! The chicken itself needed more zip so maybe sprinkling with some barbeque salt would help? I also suggest sauteing fresh mushrooms and onion in garlic butter and a splash of white wine and spooning that in the middle along with some herb and garlic cream cheese, wrapping in prosciutto and puff pastry, placing seam side down on a cookie sheet, brushing with egg whites and baking @ 375 for ~40minutes. cover with foil for a while if the pastry is getting too brown. Yum

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006

Chocolate Meringue Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
WOW! After falling upon this recipe I was happy to see I had all the ingredients and made a batch right away. They were light and fluffy and chewy and sweet and chocolaty!!! Double MMMMMMMM! I followed the recipe exactly except used mini M&M's instead of chocolate chips. Those that gave a low rating, maybe something was just not right but not because of the recipe! AWESOME!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
Well, pancakes are my all time favorite meal and I have always been on the search for the perfect recipe. I have tried everything from Bisquick to Aunt Jemima, from Betty Crocker to the IHOP secret recipe - and this one is definately the winner! I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of the sugar - I like lots of butter and syrup on the finished product so I only put 2TBSP of sugar in the actual batter. They were fluffy and rich and I can't wait to try and make this recipe as waffles!!

Pizza Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2005
I used Rotini instead of macaroni and omitted the canadian bacon. I also sauteed the mushrooms a bit with the onion and sausage. Really, any of your favorite pizza toppings would be great in this. I'd like to try ham and pineapple with a white sauce next time. Kids loved this - tasted just like pizza.

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
I think you have to make sure not to put too much batter per biscuit or spread a little without packing. I couldn't cook mine long enough without burning the tops- the middle was a little pasty. But after nuking them later they tasted fabulous!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
These were a tad too sweet for my taste and I prefer chocolate chips to butterscotch, but the oatmeal part was very moist so I would make again and sub choc chips or some cinnamon and raisins.

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
I had a bag of small MacIntosh apples to use up. I love apple pie but I also love apple crisp. So when I found this recipe that combines the 2 I was in heaven...and even moreso after eating it!! I made it for company and everyone wanted the recipe! I tweaked it according to previous reviews - increased the first amount of flour to a heaping 1/4 cup, reduced the Allspice to 1/8 tsp and omitted the nutmeg and lemon - but that is just according to our taste. Reduced temp to 360 and cooked for 50 minutes. It cut well and stayed together wonderfully. Warmed and served it with vanilla ice cream! Excellent!

Grandma Snyder's Oatmeal Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
WOW!! After reading a couple reviews, I too, put less sugar (1/2 c white, 1/2 c brown in batter, and only 1 c. brown in icing) and it gets more fabulous everytime I eat another piece!! Very moist, not too sweet but definately satisfies the sweet tooth. I also omitted the nuts but am going to try pecans next time. I've tried a lot of recipes on this site and don't leave reviews often but this one deserves the praise and I highly recommend it!

Banana Chip Muffins I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
I would've given 3 and a half for this recipe as is, but with some tweaking it is now my usual recipe for banana muffins. I too doubled the milk, put half white and half brown sugar and added some cinnamon, vanilla and a bit of banana extract. I also went to double the chocolate chips but didn't quite have enough so I also put some butterscotch chips in. Very yummy!

Hot Bacon Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
This is your basic oil, vinegar, sugar recipe with a hint-o-bacon. What makes this dressing is what you put in the salad. I used spinach, red onion, fresh garden tomatoes, some hard cooked egg and crumbled the bacon on top instead of in the dressing. Very good.

Pineapple Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
What a great loaf! The flavor explodes in your mouth and is so moist! The only suggestion I have is that it was hard to tell between uncooked and moist. So I found it better to cook for an extra 10 minutes. (Mind you I added 1/2 a cup more zucchini and some coconut) -FABULOUS!!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
I nixed the walnuts, used chocolate fudge instant pudding and mini m&m's instead of chocolate chips - people literally make pigs of themselves when I put them out - even the skinny reserved company! I agree it is better to eat them sooner rather than let them sit for a couple days but they don't get the chance to sit! GREAT recipe!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2005
I have been using recipes off this site for a couple years and have not been compelled to write a review until now. This is the only recipe where my young kids actually ask for more!! The only change I made was using real garlic (crushed) instead of garlic salt (and used regular salt). Fabulous!
