Plain Cake Doughnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
OK, I had to just laugh at some of the reviews I read..... All those complaints about heaviness and density! Helloooooo??? These are not your Krispy Kreme yeast-raised doughnuts! They are traditional CAKE doughnuts. They are MEANT to be a dense and heavy type of doughnut! I read up on the reviews, heeded some advice and began with a little extra flour in my dough. The time listed from start to end for this recipe was 25 minutes, and it was RIGHT ON! I whipped these up, rolled them out, cut and fried. My daughter rolled in sugar/cinnamon...and my family of five wolfed them down! No problems here! Nice recipe. Simple and easy dough product. Fun and delicious!

Pork Roast with Thyme

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
OK, EVERYBODY, LISTEN UP! If your complaint is that the meat was TOO DRY, then you need to get out your meat thermometer and USE IT! The #1 reason that pork is "dry" is that you have overcooked it! Pork should be done to an internal temperative of 160 degrees. There should be a touch of pink to it. Sorry, some of you are from the old school of NO PINK IN PORK, but that is just simply not true. This was an absolutely DELICIOUS recipe. My teenage son came up from the rec room to inquire what that AMAZING SMELL was! We ALL loved it! I'll be making this again and again! Only substitution I made was using white wine vinegar as I did not have apple cider vinegar on hand.

Asian Carryout Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2005
I rated this recipe with 5 stars as it is a perfect base recipe. Anyone can take this, play with it and make it suit specific taste preferences. If it is too oily, you have added TOO MUCH SESAME/CANOLA OIL. If it is not spicy enough for you, the ingredients listed are NOT spicy. You need to add red pepper flakes, curry or other spice of your choice to GET IT THAT WAY. Not enough flavor for you? Rummage through your spices and have at it! A nice twist to the hoisin sauce is to use black bean and garlic paste. Throw in a little fish sauce. Play with the veggies. Have FUN with this recipe!

Cranberry Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
Here's the secret.... forget the fresh/frozen cranberries. Use CRAISINS (dried cranberries) and add 1 cup of chopped pecans if you like. Ta da! PERFECT consistency FIRST TIME....!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
Don't know what the issue is with those who ended up with dry cake. Since purchased cake mix is not specifically created for bundt usage, it's necessary to drop the temp on the oven by 25 degrees, bake a little more slowly, and test for doneness with a toothpick in the center. Pull it out JUST when done. Nice and moist. Top with the easy SATINY CHOCOLATE GLAZE on this site. We substituted chopped M&Ms. It was a major hit with my company!

Mom's Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
Made this recipe and it is now our family favorite! I have had to share it with my sisters and niece already, as well as some friends! The only twist I gave it was some pumpkin pie spice, but you can leave it out if you like! It is great EITHER way! DOUBLE THUMBS UP!

Quick Shrimp Scampi Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Loved this recipe! Simple and delicious! Only thing missing was GARLIC! Can't have scampi without garlic! I used all the same ingredients, but changed the technique. I melted the butter and sauteed the garlic about 2 minutes. Then I added the wine and basil, simmering 15 minutes until wine had reduced. Add shrimp, cook til pink. Add pasta and toss all together. Yummmmmmm.... Huge hit at my house! Thanks!

Potato Bacon Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
My mother used to make this recipe when I was a child and it was always one of my favorites. We always used cream-style corn, but not sour cream. This recipe is perfectly fine; however, I still prefer cream-style corn. Also, if the brand of cream-style corn is not particularly sweet, I add a touch of sugar. Sounds odd, but it makes the flavor. Total comfort food! Thanks!

Albino Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
Simple and delicious! The suggestion to add fresh-squeezed lemon was exactly the touch this needed, and a tiny bit of salt. Served this alongside stuffed filet of sole. PERFECT!

Divine Chicken with Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
A simple, yet filling meal. Easy and quick when you don't have a lot of time on your hands. I thought it needed more garlic, so I added about 1 tsp. garlic powder. Tossed in some sliced fresh carrots, too. Served over rice. Wonderful!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VII

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
ABSOLUTELY SCRUMPTIOUS! Made these for a quick dessert for some company tonight.....AWESOME! I, too, soaked the raisins first in hot water for about 15 minutes before adding them to the batter. Otherwise, I did not alter this recipe ONE BIT! YUMMY! THANKS!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
Jamie's recipe is wonderful! I've been making a similar recipe for years. Some fun alternations we have done are using cashews instead of almonds, using black sesame seeds instead of poppy seeds/sesame seeds. Just use what you like! We have used fresh strawberries/blackberries/raspberries when in season. The only thing different is we do not use onion in the dressing. Have fun with this recipe and thank you for sharing this, Jamie!

Calzone Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
Oh. My. Goodness. This was amazingly delicious, and really quite simple! I made all kinds of variations, but won't hog space by sharing all of that info. Just have fun playing with this recipe. Use your leftovers, spaghetti sauce, sloppy joes, BBQ chicken, you name it. My husband thanks you, too.

Kielbasa Fried Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
This recipe is outstanding! I was looking for something to use my supersized head of cabbage for this week other than the usual coleslaw... I did not have kielbasa on hand, so substituted chicken breast. I used rice noodles instead of rice. My family ADORED this combination! So.....PLAY with this recipe! (I even added my last zucchini on hand!) HINT: A smathering of Padang peanut sauce for those who like it spicy is delightful!!

Asparagus Appetizers

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
This was absolutely delicious! My teenage daughter whipped these up for a dinner party we were having and it was a HIT! It was SO EASY! If anyone had trouble with this recipe, they HAD to be doing it wrong! We did not have bleu cheese on hand, so we substituted feta crumbles. AWESOME! We LOVE this! Even my younger kids gobbled them up! This recipe is an asparagus "must do"!

Peanut Cereal Squares

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
I have never had to rate a recipe with one star and I feel badly, but must be honest. First, the syrup just does not meld with the cereal. So I am assuming you just really have to mix these in order to have a uniform product. Next, the bars themselves were nearly impossible to cut and even more impossible to eat without risking a trip to the dentist. This was truly not a good experience.

Individual Chocolate Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
SUPERIOR recipe and soooo easy! I didn't have chocolate wafer cookies, so I just got double-chocolate OREO cookies, twisted them apart, and dropped in the bottom of the liners. PERFECT! Some had cream and some did not. Some got eaten! LOL! THIS IS A KEEPER++++!

Nothing special. Not bad, just nothing to rave about. Average cookie.
