Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This is my new cornbread recipe, I think. I used 1/2 cup sugar and whole wheat flour.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
Excellent. I used two cups of powered sugar and whipped it with my Kitchen Aid - very light and fluffy. I used it to frost a chocolate cake from this site and it brought a little tang but not too too much lemon taste.

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Sage-Brown Butter Sauce

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
My husband made these for me last night after I challanged him to make butternut squash ravioli. Since grilled cheese and burgers are more his style, I thought this turned out very well! I agree with other posters, the butternut squash taste is a bit overwhelmed by the spices but if you use a light touch I think the filling works quite well. We balanced with an a light alfredo sauce and it was yummy.

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
I have NEVER made a bisuit that even came close to turning out. Seriously, in college my roommate kept an out of a can job that I botched as a sort of pet rock. No more. Flakey, buttery and slightly sweet - these are awesome. Mine weren't pretty but they looked, and more importantly tasted, like a recognizable biscuit. I'll take it!

Avocado Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
Possibly the best salsa I've ever had. It's not even gone and we're planning on making more.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
It really bugs me it when people review recipes after making a ton of changes but because a lot of swaps are suggested in reviews for this particular muffin, I will say this: these were good the way I made them after reading through the reviews but I suspect they would have been better had I not swapped half the butter for applesauce, exchanged for wheat flour and subbed low-fat yogurt for the sour cream. A solid three or four with the subs, I have no trouble believing they'd be 5 star if left alone.

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I've never had this problem with chocolate chip cookies before, but the batter just wouldn't hold together. Once baked, the cookies were crumbly. This could be user error and my family still enjoyed them, but I wasn't thrilled.

Coq au Vin alla Italiana

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
My husband and I served Coq au Vin at our wedding reception, so the dish has special meaning for us. This is the first time I've tried to make it myself and it turned out great. I used prosciutto ham instead of sausage and it turned out wonderfully.

Basic Quiche by Shelly

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
After searching a ton of quiche recipes and not finding quite what I wanted, I gave up and searched for "basic quiche" and ended up with exactly what I was looking for. This is better than basic, it melds perfectly with any mix of ingredients you throw in. I used swiss cheese, zucchini, chicken and sun-dried tomatoes last night. Excellent.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
So good. I used white cheddar cheese and mixed in some mushrooms. Even my father in law - not a green bean fan by any means - had a bite and gave it high marks.
