Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
This is now my go to recipe for quick breads. Want to change it up...use applesauce, or blend up some bananas. I do add a bit more pumpkin then it calls for. I use about 21 oz. This works for muffins and "cakes" as well. I made this as a "cake" and forsted it with cream cheese frosting. YUM!

Creamy Lemon Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Ok, I tweeked this a little. First, I added the zest of two lemons and used the juice from the lemons. Second...I used a merringue topping. I baked the pie for 1/2 the time and then added the meringue. Dropped the temp to 200 and baked for another 45 min. It was hit! Everyone loved it!

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Well, I have to say I was skeptical...baked canned tuna didn't sound good, but my boyfriend insisted we try it. It was ok. Now, I do change a few things. First I use a low sodium soup. Second, I use bread crumb with a little metled butter instead of potatoe chips and last, I leave the veggies frozen until I bake it.

Wylma's Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
I tried this as is...and it was ok. I made some changes and tweaked and this is how I found it to be the best. 1. I ommitted the cream cheese all together. I added an extra cup of shreded cheese and 3 extra eggs. I also made this once in my muffin tin and it was great this way. I froze the muffins and now I can pull on out and microwave it real quick and have quick hot breakfast

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
Iloved this. You can adjust the recipe for as many as your crockpot can hold. Or just a couple. I added some sage. Also at the very end of cooking I removed the turkey breast added a box of Stove top, it wasn't as good as thanksgiving but wasn't that hard either

Mom's Favorite Baked Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I liked this recipe, but it is what I am used to. Baked Mac and cheese is more like a casserole than Mac and Cheese. It is supposed to be....cutable. Like into Casserol peices. Some people mentioned it was dry. Baked Mac and Cheese is traditionally drier, so if you want something more....Shells and Cheese like, try a stove top recipe. I do see some "baked" recipes that are VERY shells and cheese like, but they are not Traditional Baked Mac and Cheese.

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
Well i had to make a few changes. 1. I precooked the apples in...the microwave and squeezed them to get the extra Juice out. 2. I put the apples in the middle of the cake in a layer (like "oreoed" between the cheesecake) 3. I used Ginger Snaps for the crust. 4. I put a caramel pecan topping on AFTER the cheesecake cooled other than that...it was good

South Carolina Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I was born and raised in SC, and if I made tea like this my mother would have tanned my hide. There are a few things wrong with this - One not people use an electric coffee make for tea only....if you use your coffee make for coffee too, it is going to leave a funny taste in your tea. Also You never specified what kind of tea to buy...that is important, I'vew had people come up and ask me all the time. I make teas the following way: 7 regular sized Orange Pekoe Tea Bags (orange peko is the type of tea leaf, its generally what is used in Lipton and your other brands...but double check. It doesn't taste like oranges either. 1 1/2 Cups of Sugar for a 1 gallon pitcher. Put tea bags in small pot and put on stove with about 3 cups of water...give or take. You want the tea bags covered, so the bigger the pot, the more water you have to use. Bring tea to a boil and let it roll for 2-3 minutes. Turn tea off. let tea sit in pot for 10-15 minutes. While this is happeneing, fill you pitcher up half way with WARM water. Hot is good too, but it takes longer to cool off. Put sugar in warm water in stir vigourously. The secert to sweet tea is adding your sugar to warm liquid to melt the sugar so it doesn't all all to the bottom. Next, add your tea, then, you can either fill the pitcher the rest of the way up with water and refridgerate or...put ice in it to fill it up and drink. But remember...if you drink it before the ice melts, it might be a little sweet.

Mustard Based BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
The idea of a mustard BBQ sauce really only hits home in South Carolina and Northern GA. It is very popular down there and is what I grew up on. This recipe is a little different, we use apple cider vinegar and less honey

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
This is how my mom used to do it and I do love this recipe. I have tweaked it over the years, I add a packet of Lipton Onion soup mix, 2 cups of red wine and 3 cloves of garlic.

Cocktail Meatballs IV

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
My mom has been making this for years for all her cocktail parties. I used a little more mustard (about 1/2 cup), I also put this in the crockpot with frozen meatballs, it was great. My mom uses little hot dogs too.
