Apple Dapple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2003
This is a wonderful recipe! My grandmother used to make something like this. I omit the raisins and the nuts and put a confectioner's glaze on top. Good Stuff. I was so happy to find this after searching for four years.

Butter Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2003
My husband is a big fan of butter cakes so I tried this and put a twinkie cream from another recipe in the middle. It was fantastic! I was a little concerned that it wouldn't have a good enough butter taste for him so I added a teaspoon of butter flavoring with the one teaspoon vanilla and wow! Not sure I needed the butter flavoring but i found this to be quite good. If you have a problem with the texture, make sure you mix your sugar and butter until CREAMED this will take away some of the grit that some complain about.

Golden Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2003
I made the twinkie filling for a birthday party for a five year old and it was a hit! I was asked to make several other birthday cakes. I added a little powder sugar to the filling to make it a tad sweeter and added a little extra vanilla when I did the milk and flour base. Once again excellent!

Jenny's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2005
This was great. I did do a couple of things different some on purpose and some were and accident but it turned out very spicy and very good! First, I added chorizo on purpose but I used a can of chili tomatoes and a can of stewed (accident) It was so good. I used a bay leaf too for a little something extra in flavor. My hubby hates tomatoes and he loved this and asked me to make some and put it in the freezer so he can heat it up when our baby arrives in June. I left ouot the seafood though. Would love to try that but my hubby is allergic. Thanks again for a great recipe!

Kentucky Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
Wow! I have never liked pecan pie and I liked this. I wasn't sure about it after comparing it to other recipes I had and to other reviewers so I used four large eggs instead of three. I also added a little vanilla and baked the pie for about 60 minutes. I gave one of these pies to my carpenter and let's just say my bathroom is the best looking in the neighborhood! : )

Banana Cream Pie V

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
My sister loved this pie. I think I over whipped my egg whites because my meringue wept after a while. I would definitly put this pudding with bananas and nilla wafers. Much more my style! : )

Baked Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
Super good and easy to make. I'll have to make it again because I had a cold this time around so I didn't think I tasted it very well. Oh! I also used some pupmkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. Yummy!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
Don't know what I did but this was just ok for me. I think next time I'll buy the bacon that's already cooked and wrap that around my chicken. Not bad for a "date night" dinner when you want to impress your hubby though! He liked it. I made this with chive and onion cream cheese and served it with acorn squash and green beans. Another time I served it with sour cream and chive scalloped potatoes. Not bad!

Thanks to you I have managed to make this pie and please my husband again! It's his favorite pie besides sweet potato. Every time I make it I use this recipe and he loves it! Thanks so much.

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
I love this recipe. I am a huge fan of chocolate but a bigger fan of carmel and these sinful things hit the spot. They're great for a cookie swap because a 13 x 9 pan will go very far. They are so rich that I cut them into more than 24 pieces (about the size of a bite size candy bar). Thank you for the great recipe!

Caramel Brownies III

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
My husband and daughter loved these things! I liked them too but they really need a glass of milk or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I ate mine with frozen yogurt to feel better about all the butter and sugar. lol Make sure you let them cool completely. My husband was so excited he cut a piece while they were still warm and I thought I didn't bake them long enough. After having a chance to cool they were perfect! My oven is older and gets really hot so I baked them three minutes less in the last part of baking since I used a dark metal pan. Great recipe! Other than the baking time for my oven I wouldn't change a thing!

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
These were great! I'm more of a cook than a baker and I notice that in my family, people tend to use more of that fake butter stuff than the real stuff when baking (I don't know why! I think the realy stuff taste better)Some in my family complain when I use real butter that it doesn't taste like butter (huh?) so I added 1/2 tsp. butter flavoring found in the seasoning isle of the grocery store the first time. They didn't notice the diffence. I did. The batch with flaving tasted fake and over flavored. This recipe is perfect just the way it is. I did have to adjust the baking time to get the cookies to the right doness I like but everyone's oven is different.

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
My husband and I are giving this recipe 5 stars because it was simple, quick and very tasty! A nice switch from the apple version I make. I had always used melted butter but after grating the butter like someone else suggested, I will continue to do that frm now on. Just gives better butter coverage. I also drained the peaches. I might try adding some berries and making a melba sometime. Thanks for the great weekday recipe!

Honey's Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Very good recipe. My husband and daughter really enjoyed it with me. I made only one substitution (yogurt because I had no sour cream). I think I added an extra egg by accident but it was yummy. I made it in a 9x13 and when it came out, I poked it with a fork all over and covered it with a butter glaze (powdered sugar, melted butter, vanilla and splash of milk) I will definitely make it again! I think I'll even use this cake recipe for other treats I make.

Fried Pie Pastry

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
I this recipe more than once before giving this kind of rating. I'm certain this dough recipe is great for other kinds of pies (it worked for baked) but it was not a good fried pie dough for me. I tried adjusting flour, mixing longer, mixing shorter, different oil temps and even different types of oil! Just couldn't get it to work for me. I don't need to be making fried pies anyway. Everyone raved about the flaky dough when I baked my turnover/pie creations though. So I'm going to say good recipe...for baked pies.

Gooey Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I like these cookies. They are a little sweet for me but my husband has a serious love for cake mix cookies. I thought these baked up much nicer than other "plain" cake mix cookie recipes I've tried. I only make decadent cookies like this during the holidays. Next time I think I will use different mixes or try coating the cookies in red and green sugar mixed with the powdered sugar. Everyone loved these cookies. Thanks so much for giving us a more travel worthy version of one of my family's favorite desserts!

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This was a very nice recipe for brunch. Next time I'll use a slightly larger pan. With the thickness of this cake it got too dark for my taste by the time it was done in the middle. I will also use cinnamon and nutmeg with the allspice.

Ranch-Style Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
We liked them. The were definitely different from the deviled eggs we've made traditionally. I didn't have paprika so we put cayenne pepper on half of them. That was really good. Next time I'll use more mustard. A good tip is to put all your indredients for the inside of your eggs in a zip lock bag. Gives kids a chance to help because they can squish everything in the bag and then you just cut the tip off and squeeze into your eggs!

Bologna Salad Sandwich Spread I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
My grandma used to make this several times a year by the buckets full! It never lasted because we ate it all in a short amount of time. Don't use the sliced bologna. Use a ring bologna that isn't pickled. I use mayo and mix half with sweet relish and the other half with dill. I don't bother with the eggs. That's too much. Sandwich spread should be simple. Just the three ingredients and it's perfect! Slice eggs on your individual sandwich with mustard but you wouldn't put bologna on an egg salad sandwich would you? : )
