Gooey Butter Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Awesome! I made almost exactly as written, except for a bit of milk in the cake layer to make it spread in the pan more easily and baked for approx 42 minutes. I also put some pecan halves on top, but did it too early in the baking process as they were swallowed up as the cake puffed! Oh, well, still tasted delicious. I will make again, maybe try the chocolate version!

Cheesy Brat Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I don't like bratwurst. But I thought this would be good for a potluck and appeal to many, so I gave it a try. I think it turned out great! I don't like to review recipes that I've tinkered with, but I don't think what I did changed it appreciably, except for the cheese. I used turkey smoked sausage, fresh, chopped onions and a whole container of sliced mushrooms. I forgot to add the cheese, but I thought it was great without! Using the turkey sausage it probably could use more seasoning, but I'm not one for using a lot of seasoning, so I liked it fine! Thanks.

Country Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
YUM!!! What a great idea. I, too, cut the oil to about 1/3 cup and added all the bananas I had on hand that were inedibly old, which was 5. It turned out moist and delicious! I also added chocolate chips to appease the chocoholic in the family and it was great. Now it's Chocolate Chip Banana Cake! Thanks for the recipe!

Double Frosted Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
This is good with some extract added to the buttercream layer - I used coconut pudding mix w/some coconut added, but it'd be great with mint extract or raspberry extract (and maybe a little food coloring!) These are so easy, taste great and look like you worked! Thanks!

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I, too, put the hashbrowns in the bottom of the pan, but first I sauteed the peppers and onions to soften them, then mixed them with the hashbrowns and some salt and pepper and some of the cheese. I found that the hashbrowns on the bottom were rather tasteless otherwise and if I didn't mix some cheese into the potatoes, it all floated to the top of the casserole as it baked. Otherwise, delicious recipe with relatively few ingredients!

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
These are probably the best cake mix cookies. They go a little flat because of the butter, but it's that very butter that gives them a richer flavor than the ones made w/oil.

Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Darn it, it's just too delicious! Everyone ate it and liked it. Too bad - I wanted it all for myself. I did cut back on the garlic, of which I'm not fond, but no one missed it. I think I'd add even more cheese next time!

Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Easy, filling and tasty! We all loved this casserole. I kept to the recipe, except that I used fat free sour cream (and I just might have used more cheese....;) Delicious! The only thing I might do differently next time is to saute the onions before incorporating them. They were a little underdone. I also refrigerated it overnight, so I baked it for about a total of 1 hour and could have gone longer.

Cheddar Baked Olives

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
I love these and they're so easy to make. My tip: don't chill the dough. I find it's so much easier to stretch it around the olive if I warm the dough in my hands slightly. Otherwise it's just too crumbly and appears to need more binder (like butter). With it warm it all comes together. I use small olives so they're just a bite or two each.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
These aren't too bad, and considering how easy they are, this is a great standby recipe! I used a carrot cake mix with the pumpkin and my son (who rarely lets a fruit or veg cross his lips) loved them! They do turn out bumpy because of the thickness of the batter, but they do rise a bit and just look hearty and rustic! Mine were slightly gummy the next day, but maybe I should have baked them slightly longer. Will try with other cake flavors!

My Favorite Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Delicious!!! Both kids liked it - a rarity! I used linguini, to approximate lo mein noodles. I used crunchy PB, yum! I didn't use the chili paste (didn't have it) so I added some pepper. I felt the sodium content as written was egregious, so I used "lite" soy. I added chicken chunks to make it a meal and served it hot. Reminded me of the chicken Pad Thai from a local restaurant. A huge hit!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
Awesome. And easy - I put the dough in my bread maker on the dough cycle. The icing is delicious, just be careful how much you put on the roll; I overdid it and how sweet these were! We just scraped a lot of it off and the rolls were yum! Thanks.

Mexican Mole Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Excellent! And so easy. I did find that the cocoa added a touch of bitterness that I didn't care for, but I took another's suggestion and added 2T of peanut butter, which helped. Everyone ate it! (!!!) I simmered chicken strips in the sauce and some of us wrapped it in tortillas w/lettuce and some ate it as is. The sauce got very thick; I didn't have any more broth to thin it, but we ate it anyway. Going into the rotation! Thanks.

Rice and Raisin Breakfast Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Awesome! This is easy to make, fills you up. It's a great recipe to tweak, as well. I didn't have maple syrup, so I used a combo of molasses and honey which seemed fine. I also added chopped apples and dates to the raisins to add to the fiber and fruit content. I love to take it to work to nuke up for breakfast. Thanks for the recipe!

Butternut Squash with Onions and Pecans

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
So delicious! I nuked the squash in the microwave for 10 minutes or so to soften it so it wasn't so hard to peel and chop. I also let the onions caramelize a bit. A real hit! I never know what to do besides mash w/butter and salt (I hate squash/sweet potato recipes with sweet ingredients) and now I have something new! Thanks!

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
The only way to do a turkey. The Thanksgiving turkey has become my husband's baby and he always boils the brining mixture first, to dissolve the salt and bring out the flavors. After it cools, we put it in a large plastic trash bag with the turkey overnight in the fridge (or outside in a cooler if it's very cold!). He adds apples to the vegetables inside the turkey. Num, num!

Ricotta Cheese Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
Yum! I made mine with a devil's food cake in a bundt pan and it was delicious, and so easy! With 3 eggs in the cake I just couldn't bring myself to do 3 in the filling, but it was still very eggy with 2. I also cut the sugar to about 1/2 cup, but probably could have used the full 3/4. A great, easy recipe that can easily stand up to tweaking!

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
Can't believe this is so easy and it works! I laid the bag down on its side with no problems except for the fact that 1/2 cup kernels is too much for a standard size lunch bag and it overflowed so I had to stop it early. Next time I'll try a little more oil and 1/3 cup kernels. I couldn't taste the olive oil I used. Thanks for an easy winner! Edit: I've made this several times now and have discovered that you don't even need to use the oil at all. I squirt it w/oil spray after it pops and sprinkle w/salt.

Poppy Seed Bundt Cake III

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
Delicious and so moist, with all those eggs and oil. Makes it pretty fatty, but you can't beat the results! I stuck exactly to the recipe and it went fast! I think I'll try other pudding flavors next time.

Creamy Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
Delicious! I used skim milk, but I'm sure the soup would be even creamier if whole were used. I also pureed part of the broccoli with a handheld mixer but left lots of chunks. Very easy recipe!
