Southern Style Banana Split Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
This was terrific and even better the next day. I added some defrosted frozen sliced strawberries and chocolate shavings on top, just to replicate the taste of a real banana split. The advice to freeze the graham cracker crust before trying to spread out the cream cheese mixture was very helpful. I will be making this again especially since it comes together so easy and it's no bake! Thanks for a great recipe.

Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
These always are delicious and they're extremely easy to use with a cookie press. I've made them numerous times now and I have never had a problem from the first pressing to the last, as with other recipes that soften way too much with time. They come out crispy on the bottom but have a light, airy texture. My husband's grandmother always made cookies like these but would never give me the recipe. Well, ha! I found it!

Rosemary Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
These were excellent! I did use regular Bisquick, cream cheese, and milk because I didn't have the low-fat varieties. I didn't use all 1/2 cup milk, as the dough was pulling away from the side of the bowl without all of it. I don't think you need to knead it (haha) 10 times or whatever is called for since doing so usually makes for a tough biscuit. I didn't knead the dough at all. Also, pay attention to the 6-inch-square size. It's a lot smaller than you might imagine. I actually marked mine out on my cutting board, but if I hadn't I would have undoubtedly made the square bigger than 6-inch square. Also, 2 tsps of fresh rosemary equals 1 tsp dried rosemary, although if you're a lover of rosemary, I think you could safely add more. I will add more next time I make these and I WILL be making these again. ***UPDATE: I have also made these as drop biscuits without the cream cheese. Mix 2 1/4 cups baking mix with about 2/3 cups milk then add 2 tsps (or more, depending on your preference) fresh rosemary. Don't knead the dough. (That's my favorite part since I don't like to knead biscuits since it often makes them hard.) Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes at 450 degrees. Fresh rosemary adds a softer flavor which I prefer, but both fresh and dried are very good.

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
This was very good, but I did make the following changes: I used only 1 package cream cheese mixed with 1 cup bleu cheese dressing layered on the bottom. Then I diced the chicken very small and mixed with the hot sauce and put on top. (If you have Anchor Bar hot sauce available at a store near you, try it! It tastes great and it is supposedly the original hot wing sauce.) I put my dip in a 9X9 pan because I like a thick dip and it was perfect. Thanks for the great recipe!

Mondi's Super Simple Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
This is an excellent recipe. It's very easy and delicious. I used breast tenders and baked at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes using a shallow quiche dish. I hesitated when adding the basil and garlic because I thought it was too much, but I'm glad I didn't because it came out perfect.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
I LOVE these and I'm making my second batch of the week! I have made these using a 9x13 pan and then an 8x11 pan, as someone else suggested. The 9x13 was just right. Be careful not to overbake, though; 20 minutes is perfect.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
This cake was wonderful! It's very moist and was a breeze to make. It has a great texture that's nothing like bread. I would recommend not using an extremely sweet icing because the taste of the cake is so good and the sweet will mask it too much. I'll be making this again for sure.

Taco Dip I

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
Everyone always loves this recipe! Try CHEESY taco seasoning instead of regular seasoning to add an even cheesier taste to the dip. I serve mine in a deep pie dish. I don't like it too deep so you can get all the ingredients on your tortilla chip!

Old-Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
This is an EXCELLENT shortcake recipe. It was exactly the recipe I was looking for because it's not very sweet, but it's not a tasteless biscuit either. Mine came out moist and fluffy, but it's important to only mix until moist when adding the egg and cream. (Although I used 2% milk since I didn't have any cream.) Also, here's an idea: instead of cutting it in two and putting strawberries in the middle, just cut off the top crust slightly. It exposes the soft inside. Then when you put the strawberries on top, the shortcake soaks up the strawberry juice. Make sure you let the strawberries and sugar sit out for a while to bring out the natural juices of the strawberries. I think it's also good to mix fresh with a little bit of smashed (previously frozen) strawberries. Delicious! Thanks so much for this recipe.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
This was easy and super delicious! It tasted just as good as any I've gotten in restaurants. I served mine with a raspberry sauce (1 10-oz package of frozen raspberries, thawed, then run through a food processor until pureed) and used a store-bought graham cracker crust. You could buy Key Lime juice in the grocery store, usually near regular lemon juice so there's no need to squeeze those little limes! I will definately be making this one again.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
This is a very good recipe. I used Black Forest Ham and Swiss, but didn't stuff the chicken breasts as instructed in the recipe. Instead, I simply added the ham and cheese on top and melted it during the last few minutes of cooking. It's a lot easier, saves time, and still tastes delicious. Then I added the sauce on top when the cheese was melted. Thanks for this recipe!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Excellent! Very moist and delicious. I used two bananas since I'm not sure how much a cup would actually be. This will be my go-to recipe for banana bread from now on.

Apple Dumpling Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
This is a very good recipe. I used 13 apples (the equivalent to a 3-lb bag) and I think I'd add even more next time. I used the whole cup of oil and I think it was just fine and not oily. I would prefer the dough not to get as crunchy (like actual "dumplings"), but it was very tasty and I will probably make it again.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
These were great, but you probably already knew that based on all of the great reviews! They reminded me of the rolls you get at Texas Roadhouse. After the first raise, I just pulled the dough into a long rope then cut into 8 pieces. Then I placed them on the cookie sheet and let them rise as is. I also brushed them with melted butter right out of the oven and it gave them a nice color and flavor. I split the recipe in half and made cinnamon rolls with the other half since there's only three of us. It was a heavy carb night, but they were worth it!

Perfect Baked Potato

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
These are very tasty, but mine weren't crispy at all. They were still delicious, though. I baked mine as suggested the first time and another time I used the microwave. They are very good in the microwave, too.

Classic Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2014
Delicious and easy way to make rice! I have also used beef stock and thought it was very good. Try to resist the urge to peek under the foil after you take it out of the oven. Just trust that it will be good and don't let that steam escape! Just a note that my daughter thought it was a bit too spicy, although my husband and I thought it was just right. I personally love the very slight kick of the cayenne, but if you have kids, you may want to cut down on the cayenne just a TAD.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
Wonderful crust! Easy to work with and has a delicious taste. I mixed my dough together then threw it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow it to cool. It makes it easier to roll out and keeps it from shrinking when you're trying to make it into a pie shape. This will be my usual pie recipe from now on. Oh, and in case it wasn't clear for you either (maybe it's just me) this makes dough for 1 pie, but not a double crust. If you need a top for apple pie, etc., make a double batch.
