Million Dollar Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
Hi, I am so pleased with this recipe, I have made it five or six times. I suggest you drain the juice from both cans of fruit. Then you can add liquid as you need it. I used a boxed butter cake in a bundt cake pan. I mixed together some sugar and cinnamon, poured in half of my already mixed (accordingto package) cake mix, sprinkled the sugar and cinnamon mix over that, then added the rest of the cake mix. Bake according to directions. You will find there will be plenty of icing left over when using the bundt cake pan. I fill up the center of the cake with it. Anything left over, I eat. This is the best cake I've ever had in my life! Thank you, Glenda. Katherine D (katydid) June 12, 2009 I made this cake again for a church picnic. This time I used the Kentuckey Butter Cake found on this site. However, I think I took too much juice from the crushed pineapple. I made the cake the day before and refrigerated it. This always makes it better, but this time the cake was not as moist and good as on previous occasions when I used a box cake. I'm not blaming the cake, though. I think I will take the advise of other reviewers and refrigerate the icing before putting on the cake. I will let you know how that goes. It's still the best cake in the world. I also prefer the four layers rather than the bundt cake pan. Who wants this wonderful icing on a so-so cake?

Apple Cake and Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
First of all, the picture doesn't look like it was made in a glass pie plate. Secondly, I don't understand why we were not to grease the pie plate. All in all, I was disappointed in the cake and will not make it again. After reading the reviews, I was really looking forward to the butter sauce. The taste was no special, the color wasn't good, and it was very sweet. The cake wasn't bad. It was moist and the flavor was all right. Sorry, Robin. Katherine

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
I haven't tried the oven version yet, but when I cook my bacon in the microwave, I put it on top of paper towels that I have sprayed with a no-stick cooking spray. This way you don't have a lot of grease to pour off and your bacon isn't swimming in a lot of grease. Probably fewer calories, too. Then again, you might want to save the grease to cook in something else, like greens, or bean soup. Katherine Aug. 3rd 2009 I have made this recipe several times since my first review. I put a cookie cooling rack in a cookie sheet, I put the paper towels on top of the cookie rack, spray the paper towels with cooking spray. Make sure paper towels are inside of cookie sheet. If not, the grease will drip on the oven and smoke. Once I left the bacon in too long and it got to crispy to serve. I crunched it up for bacon bits and put it in the freezer. Katherine Dec. 7 2008

Red Slush Punch

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
I have made this punch several times. At times I have a little problem with it getting slushy. But it is so good there is NEVER any left. I have even made popsicles out of some for my grandchildren. I have made it both with ginger ale and lemon-lime. It goes just the same. I have poured it in a bunt cake pan to feeze so I had a pretty ring. Try this recipe. Katherine

Peach Cobbler V

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
I have made this cobbler several times using blueberries, or blackberries, peaches, or apples. WhetherI use canned or fresh pie filling,I always use a lot of brown sugar. I would say about 1 and 1/2 cups. One lady said this recipe needs more fruit. I totally agree. I used two 15 oz. cans of peaches. For seasonings I use 1 tsp. of cinn., 1 tsp. of nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp of mace. I also add another 1/2 a stick of butter to the pie filling. I get rave reviews and people asking for the recipe. I love the way the dough rises to the top. Thanks for this recipe.

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I started not to use the honey because I don't like sweet meat, but I did. I didn't even taste the sweetness. I used a meat thermometer that stayed in the meat while it was cooking. I like my lamb and beef medium rare. It came out perfectly! I loved the taste of the fresh rosemary. Good recipe.

Best Moist Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
When I make a recipe from AllRecipes.com, I like to make it the first time exactly as the recipe says. I didn't do that this time. Instead of a cup and a half of milk, I put a cup and a half of non-fat sour cream. Instead of margarine, I used butter. I think I might cut back to 1/2 tsp. of salt next time, and there will be a next time. This is a good cake. I agree with the commenters who used block chocolate if you like it real chocolatey. I don't. This was about as chocolate as a German chocolate cake. This turned out very moist. I'm saying it's because of the sour cream. I can't say for sure because I haven't tried it with the milk. Good recipe.

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I give this five stars. You can add or take from this salad as you like. I added cucumbers and celery. I took the advice of another commenter and layered my dressing as I made the salad, rather than put the dressing on top. However, the first commenter was correct in that the dressing does get all through the salad after awhile. It was delicious, and a meal in itself. I think it would be good with little squares of ham, or pepperoni, or chicken, or turkey. Or any combination of meat. I will definitely make this again. My family loved it. I took it to a birthday party. Katherine

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
These biscuits are perfect. I took J. H. West's advice and used all butter, since she experimented with all shortening, half butter-half shortening, and all butter. I could taste the small amount of sugar. I used a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter and only got about 10 biscuits. I'm afraid to double the recipe for fear of compromising the recipe. I would like to use a larger biscuit cutter. So, I'll just have to make the recipe twice. Another reviewer said that when she kneaded the dough more than the recipe called for, the biscuits rose higher. She is right. Great recipe. Thanks Nancy Katherine

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I thought it would be too much sugar, but I used what it called for anyway. It was really good. I added raisins and, instead of raisins, will add small chunks of pineapple next time. I made 6 loaves. I have so much zucchini in my garden, I will be making this again soon and freezing it. I will give some away at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanks v monte for this recipe!

Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I give it a 4 because I added to it or changed some things. I didn't have cheddar cheese, but I had Monterey Jack cheese, so I used that. I added a little more sour cream than called for, I added 1 onion to the squash mix, I used about 2 cups more zucchini, 1/2 cup of french fried onions to the 1/2 cup of dressing I sat aside. After I spread the squash mix on the dressing I layered about 8 oz. of Muenster cheese on top of that. I finished off with the french fried onions I had mixed with the 'sat aside' dressing. Next time I will add chopped basil from the garden. This is a good recipe and will get rid of a lot of that garden zucchini. It also tasted the same if not better the next day. Next I will try freezing it. Katherine

No Commercial Yeast Starter

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
It was hard for me to wait 2 days to use this starter. It did start bubbleing right away. It started to smell sour after about 2 days. After following the sourdough bread lll recipe on this site I put it on the rise. I could see it rise before my eyes! I am dead serious. I was so excited. I decided to feed my starter and put it in the refrigerator. I showed it to my husband so he would not throw it out. I can't wait until tomorrow to see how much more this dough has risen.

Chicken Dumpling Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
This sounded so good and to me that is part of what makes a good cook if you can look at a reipe and tell if it's good. Well, I lost out on this one. The soupy part was good, but the chicken dumplings were not. The texture is what was so bad. I didn't like the tarragon flavor in this recipe, though I like tarragon. The dumplings were too soft to work with and the recipe as a whole was very time consuming. What we didn't eat, we froze. We will probably discard the dumplings and replace them with oysters....my husband's suggestion. Anyway, sorry SILVANUS, but I have to give a thumbs down on this one. I will not try this again.

Layered Egg Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This was a very good recipe. I loved the seasonings used in the meat sauce. The white sauce that went on top of the meat sauce was wonderful and decadent. I made home made egg noodles. This did not add to the recipe as I hoped it would. Save yourself some time and buy the packaged noodles. Next time I think Iwill double the white sauce and mix half of it with the noodles...then layer as directed. Also, as far as the directions go, I always saute and drain my meat before I add my vegetables. This way I don't throw any flavor of the vegetables out with the grease. Also, I used Romano cheese instead of Parmesan. Thanks Donna.

Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
This was wonderfully delicious. I made this for my husbands's supper and he loved it. It is too good to be so quick and easy. I took the advice of some reviewers and heated my saurkraut, put it between the meat and cheese, and did not rinse my saurkraut. We like it tangy too. Thank you Colette G. You get 5 stars from me.

Country Manor Breakfast Tart

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
Made this this morning for church. Read the reviews first, so I knew it would take a little longer than 40 minutes to cook. Except for the crust, I followed the directions exactly. It got nothing but raves. It IS a lot of work, but it is worth it. It is very rich so, if you like you can use fat free half and half instead of heavy cream. Another reviewer ;halved the cheese, and still another made it crustless. There are ways to cut the calories. Read your reviews. I love basil. Wonderful, wonderful dish. Thank you bettina.
