Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
I love this! I love cinnamon! I love something sweet and cinnamon that isn't a cinnamon roll. It's dense and moist and delicious. I didn't make any adjustments. Just perfect the way it is.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I loved this bread. I made it with some cheesy manicotti and it was incredible. My boyfriend's picky kids loved it which means anyone would. Perfect texture. I was scared because I didn't know if my bread machine's 'dough' cycle would be the same as everyone else's and I was afraid it would rise to much, but it was just right,and so easy.

White Layer Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
I am so disappointed. Did I do something wrong? I love the flavor of this, but when I tried to bake it, it burnt on the edges and top, and wouldn't cook in the middle. What happened? I may try it again some day, but for now, I am just not pleased.

No Fail Pie Crust III

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
This pie crust is amazing! I want to bake pie all the time, just so I can use this recipe. I am not very good at rolling out the crust, but that's just my own folly, I assume. Delicious!

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
These are delicious! I followed the recipe almost exactly. I used powdered buttermilk instead of the regular kind. I added cinnamon, flax seeds, and blueberries(omitting the raisins). Simply delicious. Oh yeah, and I had run out of oil, so I used apple sauce. Wow, maybe I changed a lot more than I thought.

Quick Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
These are absolutely incredible. I could eat the whole plate. They are amazing after letting them sit for a night. Like a lot of other people said, take them out sort of early. Before they look they are really done. And I ran out of the filling, so I would also making just a bit more than that. -----UPDATE-----I made more filling the second time and it was much much better. So, adjusted amounts for the filling were 10 oz cream cheese, 3 cups powdered sugar, 5 tbsp butter, and a little over a tsp of vanilla. Also, the first time I made it with 1 package devil's food and one package dark chocolate cake mix, and I liked that a little better.

Buttermilk Syrup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I make this syrup ALL the time. I didn't get the recipe from here originally, but I lost my old hand written copy, so I use this one now. Today, I used powdered buttermilk instead of regular buttermilk, and it was still just as delicious.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
These are fantastic. I live in Utah, where tea time is uncommon, and the only scones that anyone has heard of are deep-fried. I've started having tea time, and wanted some real scones, and these were incredible. I love them. After cutting them in wedges, we cut them and put jam in them before cooking. They were yummy.

Spicy Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I've tried this recipe several times with a few variations. I've used coconut milk in it to make it creamier. I've also added curry. I love it, but it's not exactly the most popular when I make it. I think it's mostly people who don't like pumpkin or sweet potato that dislike it.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
I LOVED this cornbread! I didn't cook it completely, so the center was a bit soggy on the top, but I gobbled up all the good parts. Delicious. I used powdered buttermilk. First time using the powdered version, but I don't cook with it enough to keep it on hand. It was great, and I will definitely be making it again.

Black Bean, Corn and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I have made this recipe twice. Both times it was amazing. I didn't change anything the second time except that I used 3 cloves fresh garlic instead of garlic powder and also added more chili powder and a bit of paprika. The first time I made it however, I had to make part of it Vegan for someone at work, so I cooked the turkey without the onions and spices and just cooked those things seperately. It was still amazing.I've had people tell me this is the best chili they have ever had.

Grandma's Orange Milk Sherbet

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
This was really good. i couldn't bring myself to give it 5 stars, but it was very very tasty. I changed a few things out of necessity. I didn't have a can of crushed pineapple, but I did have a real pineapple that was not long for this world, so I used that. I just cut it into pieces and blended it. It wasn't quite 15 ounces however so I got some tangerines that I had and blended that to make up for it. I squeezed the oranges by hand, but didn't have quite enough, so I added some Simply Orange. I also added orange food coloring to make it a little more rich looking.

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I thought these were perfect cookies. I like them because they are not too sugary. I didn't think they were too bland. They were just right when you put a little frosting on them. I can see that they might not be as good if you didn't add a little frosting, but why wouldn't you? They held their shape well. We also didn't want to wait over night and stuck the dough in the freezer for a bit, and they worked pretty good.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I made these last night, but instead of making rolls out of them, I made about 4 bread bowls for my soup. They weren't as sturdy as other bread bowls, but my goodness they were delicious. I didn't make any changes to the recipe, but all I had was all purpose flour, and it worked just great. They rose just fine and tasted divine.

Cheesy Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
Really good soup, and fairly easy to make. We added bacon like many other people did. Very yummy in a soup bowl. Definitely keeps you warm at night and fills you up quite easily.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
This recipe made me very very upset. I can't believe it has such a high rating. Did I do something wrong? I don't think I did. I followed this recipe exactly. It was terrible. I had the same problem that others had. My bread (baked for much longer than recommended time) came out burnt on the outside and very wet on the inside. No matter how long it was in there, it was still undercooked on the inside. I know of lots of banana bread recipes that don't do that, so I will stick with them. I just can't understand why mine was so bad and everyone else had such a peachy time with it.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
Very very good soup. Fairly simple to make, but be aware that if you double this recipe it makes A LOT of soup. only the 4 star rating because you go through a lot of pans and it's not the easiest.

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
These were very very delicious. Of course, I'm not sure if the original recipe is, but even with all of my messups they turned out good. I didn't have milk, so I used coconut milk. Crazy huh? Then, since I'd messed up a couple times, I decided to take liberties. I added a teaspoon of vanilla at the end and some spices(cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves). They were mighty tasty.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake III

Super super good coffee cake. I doubled the topping like most others did. I don't know how you couldn't.

Chocolate Glaze I

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
absolutely perfect for what I was doing. I made a dense Devil's food cake and I thought I had after I drizzled it over the cake. It's almost like hot fudge and it would be REALLY good over cake and icecream.
