Buttermilk Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
Wow, this bread is great! I used a package of yeast and made the dough in my bread machine. When the dough was done, I took it out, punched it down and put it in a buttered bread plan covered with saran wrap. I let it proof in a cold oven with a warm bowl of water sitting on the rack under the bread, for 40 minutes. When it was done, I took it out, removed the saran wrap and water from the oven, preheated oven to 350 degrees and brushed the top of the bread with an egg/water mixture then baked for 30 minutes. This is one of the best breads that I've made. Thanks for the recipe.

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
These were the best rolls that I've ever made and they looked like they came from the bakery! Instead of using powdered milk, I used 1/4 cup of buttermilk and added about 2 tablespoons of extra flour to compensate for the extra liquid. When I let the rolls rise, I covered my pan with saran wrap and placed them in an UN HEATED oven with a bowl of warm water on the rack below them. They turned out excellent! Although you do not need to brush the rolls with the egg mixture, it gives it a a shiny coating, just like the better bakeries, so I recommend that you take the extra 2 min. and use the egg wash on the rolls! Great recipe.

Birthday Bones

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
Wow, these are very easy to make and my dogs LOVED them! You can just put a light coat of flour on the surface that you are working on, coat your hands, then press out the dough, and cut out your shapes. Very easy and quick to make. I cut these out in heart shapes, then baked for 12 minutes, flipped them over and baked another 6 minutes so both sides are browned and the cookies are crisp. Thanks for a great, easy dog treat recipe!

Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
This is a fantastic recipe but it is a bit time consuming, so I changed the cooking method to make it quicker since I am extremely busy! I made the roux until it was light caremel color, then added some beef broth, garlic onions and seasonings. You keep wisking continously until you have a thick looking gravy. I poured the mixture in the crockpot and added more liquid and the rest of the ingredients. I used hot smoked sausage and whole skinless/bonelss chicken breasts uncooked. I cooked it for about 4 hours on high, removed the chicken breasts and shredded the chicken, and added it back to the pot. I could not find file powder but used the rest of the spices listed. It was excellent! I cut the recipe in half and filled a 6 qt crockpot to the top! Everyone raved about it and it did nto take too long to make. Note: Don't skimp on the roux, you have to make the roux on the stove top then you can add to crockpot. It only took about 15 minutes to make the roux. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Wow, this is the best pound cake that I've ever made/tasted! I used all vanilla extract and it came out great. A few tips..DO NOT open the open to check on this, as it will fall if you do (as I found out the first time I made this)! I also used regular flour and reduced each cup by 2 tbspns as others suggested, and make sure that you beat well after adding each egg as it will give you more of an airy texture but yet still have that pound cake consistency. Fabulous recipe, thank you!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly( but baked at 325 degrees), and it came out great! Instead of loafs I made 24 muffins and one mini-loaf. I topped them with pecans for decorations and they were great.

Pork Chop Casserole III

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Overall this recipe was fast, easy and with a few adjustments very tastey. I used golden mushroom soup instead of cream of mushroom soup, and I used good seasons garlic and herb powder salad dressing instead of the onion soup mix. I mixed the rice, soup, water, a little pepper and 1/2 of the garlic and herb powder together. Then I mixed the other 1/2 of the garlic and herb powder, a little salt and pepper and oregano together and set that aside. I sprayed the baking dish with non-stick spray, poured in the liquid/rice mixture, coated the pork chops with the dry seasoning that I mixed together, then topped it all with french fried onions. I cooked it for about 1 hr 15 min and boy was it good!

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
This recipe turned out fantastic with a few minor adjustments. I did not put any eggs in the sweet potatos, left out the sugar from the sweet potatos and cut the brown sugar for the topping in 1/2. The organge rind really gave it a great taste. Oh, I also added a little cinnamon.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
This turned out fantastic with a few adjustments. I used 1/2 the sugar suggested, used maple and brown sugar instant oat packages (2) single serve packages, added a little all spice, doubled the cinnamon and used 1/2 the water. By the way, the 2nd time I made this I used 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda and you could not tell the difference. Great recipe.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
These cookies came out fantastic. The only changes that I made was to add a pinch of cinnamon, use 3/4 cup white sugar and 1 1/4 cups brown and cashew nuts instead of walnuts. Make sure your dough does not start to get too warm. If it does, put it in the frig. for a few minutes and do not handle dough. Great recipe!

Slovak Stuffed Cabbage

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
This is a great recipe with a few adjustments. I used 2 cans of tom.soup and one 16 oz can of tom. sauce and no water. I omitted the sauerkraut but added 1 tablespoon of cidar vinegar to balance out the 1 tablespoon of sugar. I used both beef and pork because I think it gives it more flavor and I added onion powder and hungarian paprika. These were very tasty although the cabbage could have been a bit more cooked, so next time I will increase the time to 1 hr 40 min. I also covered the dish for the first hour then uncovered it for the last 1/2 hour. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
I agree with everyone else that this makes 12 muffins. I also had to add more milk than the recipe called for, and instead of the crumble topping, I used 4 crushed up crunchy cinnamon granola bars. They turned out great with these few minor adjustments.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
These biscuits came out fantastic! The only change I made was I used butter instead of shortening. These were the lightest, tallest biscuits that I've ever made! Thanks for the recipe.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
This Irish Soda bread was delicous and very easy to make. Like others, I used my Kitchen Aid Mixer with the bread attachment on, so I did not have to hand knead. I did not have buttermilk or regular milk so I used evaporated milk and 1/2 the sugar and it turned out fantastic. Next time I think I wil add some raisons.

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
This recipe was very tasty with a few minor changes. I used cavenders seasoning and browned bone-in chops first. I also used about 1/2 cup of ketchup and only 1/4 cup of soy sauce, and added 1 capful of cider vinegar and about 1/4 cup of splenda brown sugar blend instead of regular brown sugar. Very good. I will definately make this again.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
This was a really good Mexican rice recipe. I was really short on time so I did make a few adjustments. I used the Success family size boil in the bag rice and boiled the rice in a mixture of water,chicken broth tomato sauce and the spices listed in the recipe. After I took the rice bag out of the liquid, I added a little more tomato sauce and salt directly to the rice. It was really great, and ready in about 10 minutes!

Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
I thought that this recipe was excellent! I made a few minor adjustments which was I used onion powder instead of onions, and a jar of hormel real bacon pieces not the fake bacon bits! I also mixed in some chives and topped with extra cheese and chivies. Excellent recipe, thanks!

No Bake Sugar Free Cheese Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Like others suggested, I used the sugarfree cheesecake pudding mix, and the smaller jello (.33 I think), and 2 cups of milk. It turned out pretty well, but to me it's more like a parfait than a cheesecake.

Cheesecake Cookie Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
I made these this past weekend for a Christmas party and they were a hit! I baked the cookie for 12 min, and it was a litte over done so next time I'll go with the 10 min. time frame. The cheesecakes did not drop in the center like many other recipes. They were nearly perfect and even better topped with cherries or chocolate and caramel sauce!
