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!!

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!

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++

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!

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!

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!

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!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2006
I changed a few things to suit our tastes but overall this was a great cookie. A little sweet so I reduced both sugars by 1/4 cup (3/4 brown and 1/2 white. I added 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 c wheat germ, 1 c semisweet choc chips and pressed mini m&m's into them after flattening slightly on the cookie sheet. I also added 1/2 c more oats and 1/2 - 1 c coconut and thus making the ultimate Monster Cookies!

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! ~

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
Yum. These cookies are so good. I make them every year for our Christmas bake sale. They are more like mini-cakes rather than a chewy cookie though. But that's half the reason why I like them! So if you are expecting chewy, stick with a chocolate chip cookie recipe. The only changes I made are to use half brown, half white sugar and only a total of 1 cup. I also add 1/4 cup of wheat germ. I only put a sprinkle of the nutmeg and use a whole small can of pumpkin instead of 1 cup. I also throw in a cup of milk chocolate chips. Then for the icing I use only 1 cup of icing sugar, the 1 tbsp butter and 1 tsp vanilla and then add milk until it thins. I recommend refrigerating these in an airtight container as they get really moist as they sit and sometimes the icing stays drippy instead of hardening slightly. Great recipe for fall and smells SO good while baking!

Hazelnut-Mushroom Pilaf

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
I did not make the recipe as stated but I figured it had a lot of room to improvise if you want. I used the celery onion and butter but also added garlic. I didn't use mushrooms or the hazelnuts, but I used chopped toasted pine nuts, and instead of marjoram I used 1 tsp tarragon, 1 tbsp freeze dried parsley, the juice of half a lemon and a bay leaf. I used 2/3c Jasmine Rice and 1/3c orzo and used the full 2 cups of chicken broth. Really great base recipe where using whatever ingredients you have on hand will still make a tasty side dish!

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2006
All I can say is WOW. After making this as is the first time- just to test the chicken and spice combination which I loved so much- I tweaked to perfect it. I doubled the spices, leaving out the nutmeg and used course salt instead of regular. I rubbed under the skin as well and marinated overnight. Then I put it on my indoor rotisserie for 90 minutes and added the drippings to a regular canned chicken gravy....I could eat the whole bird myself!! Everytime I have company for dinner this is what they request. Thanks for the flavorful, exciting way to roast a chicken!

Doubletree Hotel's Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
I made these without having tried this hotel's cookie. More like mini cakes rather than a cookie! Personally, I prefer a traditional chewy-flat-type cookie (the baking soda should have tipped me off). But for those that like the cake-type...this is a great recipe!

Empire Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
My dough was very dry and crumbly and hard to work with, then after the initial taste test I thought that these were very dry and not that good at all. But after letting them sit in a covered container overnight, the rasberry jam (I used seedless) moistened those cookies and they ended up being really good. i don't know how to make the dough easier to work with if I should try adding another egg or some milk perhaps?

Sensational Sirloin Kabobs

Reviewed: May 29, 2006
Well this was a great start, but I improved upon it to make it 5 stars. Instead of the garlic powder and garlic pepper seasoning, I used 1 clove fresh garlic minced and 1/2 tsp Montreal steak spice. I marinated the veggies as well (adding zuchinni, red pepper and sweet vidalia onion to the other veggies listed - substituting portabello mushrooms for regular). After marinating all day I microwaved the zuchinni and peppers for a minute and a half and skewered everything. I used canned pineapple chunks, reserving the juice and added a bit to the basting marinade. Delicious!!!
