Elephant Ears

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
This recipe was really good, especially freshly made:)I made it for my kids at the preschool I work for and my husbands hot rod shop. It was hot both places:) The only heads up I give is the cinnamon sugar topping is way way off...in my opinion anyway so you may want to tweak with that(the cinnamon side of the ratio was too high!) Thanks

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
This was amazing! We are broccoli lovers to begin with, but this dish is so yummy that it would convert even a devout hater! I recieved many compliments on this dish when I made it on Christmas, and I plan on making it many more times in the future! Thanks for the recipe!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I usually don't like biscotti but I think these are delicious! I like the use of olive oil instead of butter, too...it makes them cheaper to make and a little healthier.

Hot Spinach Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
This was so good! I made it as one of the appetizers on Thanksgiving, and everyone ate so much of it that we barely had any room left for turkey!

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This was my first time making gumbo and it was delicious! Next time, I may cut down just a bit on the cajun seasoning as it was too spicy for my boyfriend...but I thought it was absolutely perfect! This recipe makes ALOT of gumbo- but it freezes well!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
I love this recipe. I've made it quite a few times now exactly as it is written. It makes a very sweet dough. Everytime I have baked it, the dough in the center of my loaf is underdone, while the crust is perfect. This could be my oven or cheap pan..? However, this dough makes delicious, perfect Parker House rolls. After the first rising, form dough into 1" balls in greased muffin tins and allow to rise 30 minutes. Then bake until golden. I always keep a batch of them in the freezer. Thanks!

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I've never visited the certain restaurant these are served at but these biscuits are amazing! I just made my first batch and I think I'm going to make a quadruple batch next time so I can freeze the rest! Thanks for this delicious (AND easy!) recipe!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
I've made this recipe a few times now, and they never have turned out flat. I once read in a review in order to ensure cookies will hold their shape in the oven, it's necessary to chill them in the fridge first. I do this for all the cookies I bake now, and never have the flattening issue anymore. My favorite variation on this recipe is substituting vanilla for the almond and using homemade vanilla blackberry jam :) Thanks! These are just like my Grandma used to make!

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
I made this recipe exactly as it is written, and I thought that it was great! Both my boyfriend and I thought that the spice level was perfect, not too spicy, not too mild. The next time, I might add some extras to our tastes...but as a base this is perfect! Thanks!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
I have been using this recipe for years now and there is not much to say except: these are near perfect! :) Years ago I used to labor for a mall pretzel shop and this is pretty much it! The only changes I seem to make is to add a little more oil and a little more water, and I rotate the pan halfway through so that they bake more evenly. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe!

Delicious Dog Treats

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I just finished making these and my two dogs went CRAZY for them. They are a definite hit. They'll be very cute to give during the holidays, too! I was nervous about cooking for my dogs, and so I did some research on the ingredients. I did not use milk (can cause gastrointenstinal distress) and replaced it with more water. I mixed the beef bouillon with the bowling water to make a broth. I only added a pinch of sugar each. I did not add the seasonings, I read some conflicting reports on the paprika. I did add just a dash of cayenne. Thank you so much for this great recipe!

Merritt's Butternut Squash Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
The flavor of this dish was very yummy. I thought that the end result of this dish would be roasted chunks of squash with browned breadcrumbs and cheese, but the squash was so soft from being baked under the foil that the consistency was more like mashed potatoes. I think that next time I will experiment with the baking temperatures and methods to get the texture I want from this dish, but otherwise I think it is great. It wasn't enough to change the mind of my squash hating dinner-guests, though. :( Thanks Merrittorious

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
This was my first adventure cooking with leeks, and I thought that the flavor of this soup was delicious. However, I really prefer a very thick potato soup and no matter what I tried (slightly mashing the potatoes and adding a cornstarch slurry) I couldn't get this to the thickness I like. I'll probably stick with my old standby recipe for potato soup, but add leeks. Thanks for sharing!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
I made this using chicken bouillon, and I also added minced garlic and onion that I sauteed with the olive oil and cumin. I couldn't believe how easy and delicious this recipe is! Thanks so much, I'll be making this one often!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
I made the recipe as written, and it was pretty good. As is, I think that it makes a great base recipe that needs some extra customizing.
