It's true that this recipe, as any other, can easily be altered to personal preferences but I made it exactly as directed and it was a great 5 star Carrot Cake Recipe as is! Thanks for sharing =D

Pineapple Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 25, 2013
Admittedly, I used this recipe as a base because I wanted a no-bake cheesecake that used ingredients I was likely to have. The first time I used this recipe, I baked and cooled a brownie mix, then added this recipe, minus the pineapple, to the top of the cooled brownie, garnished with strawberries and it was AMAZIN & GONE by the end of the BBQ =) I have used this recipe several times, in different ways... it has much versatility and it's super easy!

No Roll Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
The ease and simplicity of this recipe, alone, deserves 5 stars***** Any oil can be used and many additives, depending on your pie, work well too!

Easy Cheese Ball II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
This is a great base recipe... you can add meat(s), cheese(s) and veggie(s) of your choice and I've made this w/Italian dressing mix as well (w/pepperoni, olives & green pepper bits! My favorite is making a cheese-ball snowman, using black olives for eyes, a ready-cut mini carrot as the nose and a green or red pepper scarf... buttons are optional like everything else!!!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
This is a great recipe and can be used to make banana bread or carrot cake by exchanging the fruit/vegetable. Will be keeping this one as an all-around base recipe!

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
I did make a few adjustments, like red onion instead of white and I added green peppers as well. I also doubled my juice to completely cover the vegetables but I got rave reviews and loved this recipe. I will definitely try it again, adding a few more veggies next time!

If you don't like or have artichoke hearts, water chestnuts chopped up are wonderful too!

Cute Egg Chicks

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
I borrowed the creative idea from this recipe, in combination with my own deviled-egg recipe (& using pimento for the beak instead of red pepper, considering I already had the olives). These are peeping cute & yummy ; ) Thanx for sharing!!!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Well, I followed the recipe to a tee, considering the 4.5* of 5,670 rating & they have a nice flavor but I'd probably classify them more as cake cookies rather than soft-batch. I guess I expected these results due to the amount of eggs in this recipe. I only rated this a four b/c I would definitely change a few things next time I try soft-batch; at least one less egg if not halved, one less cup of flour, double the vanilla & add the 2 TB of baking powder & 1/2 tsp. salt... regardless, they are still quite tasty!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
This is the perfect base recipe! It's good as is or can be easily altered to your liking. I personally prefer vanilla, pecans, golden raisins and cinnamon in my banana bread! I think I'll try some of the other 'healthy suggestions' like whole wheat flour next time. I have substituted butter/oil in other recipes, with applesauce, which works here too. Other tips: 1) Half an egg-shell of water is equal to one egg, if you're short, which also makes for a healthier recipe! 2) The blacker your bananas, the sweeter, naturally & less sugar you'll need for a recipe.

Hot Water Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I've never seen a pie crust that uses hot water so I had to try it. I used this recipe for a home-made chicken pot-pie. The dough was very workable with my hands and easily pressed into my pie-plate but it requires A LOT of flour to roll as it's quite greasy! I think it's a great basic recipe that requires no chilling but I will probably add 1/2 C more flour to the recipe next time I make it.

Sweet Potato Pear Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This recipe could have easily been a 5! I only rated this a 4 because I liked my version better (less prep). I tweaked this recipe using: 4 cans pineapple-orange sweet potatoes mashed with 3 T. brown sugar, 1/4 t. pumpkin pie spice, & 4 T. reserved pear juice. I arranged the half-pears filled with cranberry sauce in a circle also and topped with chopped pecans. Then bake 40 min @ 350F. This is VERY sweet and def a dessert! TIP: You can substitute the orange zest the original recipe calls for with 1/2 can mandarin oranges, drained or 4 T. orange juice and 1/2 can crushed pineapple lightly drained if you can't find the pineapple-orange sweet potatoes. Also, if you use yams instead, you'll want to double the brown sugar! This is ideal for Thanksgiving ; )

Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
I've been preparing this recipe for 20 years! My sister & I created it (or thought anyway) and we call it 'Sister Casserole'. It's ALWAYS a hit and cheap & easy too! I add mushrooms & whole canned green beans (drained) to regular milk & the soup/broth combo, then top with Durkee Onions or the Hawiian Sweet Onion potato chips. It's perfect for a potluck, BBQ or any meal!!! TIP: if you're preparing for a quick dinner, keep the chicken whole BUT if you don't mind an extra step, the chicken will go further if you cut it up into pieces and mix it in with the other ingredients before baking.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
First, I did make a couple of changes to this recipe. I didn't have ground clove, so I doubled the cinnamon instead. Also, I had no real butter in the house so I used all butter-flavored Crisco instead. Also, I'm a huge nut fan, especially when it comes to oatmeal cookies... so I only added 1/2 cup of raisins (rather than 1 cup) and 1/2 cup of pecans. My problem with this recipe wasn't the flavor but the consistency. It was a very dry batter that needed to be pressed into balls in order to stay together and the cookies never flattened out during baking either, which meant either flattening them or adding an extra 5 minutes to the bake-time. The flavor was at least a 4 1/2 stars but it wasn't so great that I felt it was worth the extra trouble of trying to keep them together on the sheet or the extra bake time, sorry.

Vinegar Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Thank goodness that I found this recipe again!!! I used this recipe for Thanksgiving last year and forgot to save it to my recipe box. I had to search for it using the vinegar as an ingredient I wanted and corn syrup as one I didn't. This was one of the two very first pies I've ever made and it got rave reviews. I followed the recipe to a tee with no alterations. It's sweet but not an overkill on the sweet-tooth like most pecan pies. *****

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
This is good as it is and great as a base. I made two of them... one w/ranch dressing package and one w/italian. If you really want to "get this ball rolling", try adding veggies, like finely chopped garlic & onion, bell peppers (green & red for Christmas)and try out a variety of shredded cheeses & meats. Also, I had/used mixed nuts, originally, and they worked fine. I gave this recipe a 4 instead of 5 stars for lack of creativity alone :(
