Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
This is a fantastic recipe. I used half brown sugar, half white sugar, and a little oatmeal and pecans in the topping. Very yummy.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
Has anyone tried substituting coffee liquer for part of the oil? I'd like to try that, but I'm a little nervous!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
I loved this recipe! More like cake than a muffin. I don't suggest changing anything!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2007
All that's missing from this classic recipe is a bit of mayo! Spread some on before you add the cheese.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
This was not my favorite lemon curd recipe. It had a cloudy color and gritty texture. I didn't change anything ingredient or prep wise. It was a bit too much on the tart side.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Fantastic recipe! I doubled the recipe with no problems. I did microwave the potatoes (in their jackets) to reduce cooking time. Skip the peeling! The skin adds nutrients and interest!

The best Devon cream I've tried. Not too sweet!

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Just lovely. Made this as a filling for a pie instead of the traditional chocolate cream. I don't think I'll ever go back to the chocolate cream filling again!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
Delicious! Added a touch more salt (personal preference) but this is really the best cornbread I've had in a loooong time!

Poke Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
Don't forget to let the cake cool in the fridge for three hours before topping with the Cool Whip. I didn't the last time I made it and my cake was SO ugly. But it still tasted good... I also put a layer of fresh, sliced strawberries on top of the cake before topping with the Cool Whip. Delicious!

Country Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Moist and delicious! I made about 50 mini muffins from this recipe and subbed mini chocolate chips for the raisins and nuts. I was out of nutmeg, so I used pumpkin pie spice to total the amount of spices in the recipe (approx. 2 heaping teaspoons). They were a hit!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
This seriously is the best scone recipe I've ever made. I added dried cran-cherries and a teaspoon of vanilla (I would have added almond extract if I'd had any). Before baking, I did a milk wash and sprinkled them with sugar. And I divided the dough in two and made two discs. One would have been too huge! I know this recipes is a winner because my husband, who detests scones because they're usually dry and bland, loved these. Serve them with the Easy Devonshire Cream from this site and you'll have a tea party to remember!

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
Fantastic cake. I did like some of the other reviewers and pour half of the glaze in the pan and replace the cake (after I gave it a good once or twice over with a toothpick). I also reduced the walnuts by half and it was perfect. I had no problems leaving the cake in the pan overnight--it came out intact and looking beautiful.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
I also baked this in a 9x13 pan and I had to bake it for much longer than the recipe states. While the flavor was pretty good, the consistency was a little gummy in the middle.

Pork Tenderloin alla Napoli

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
WOW! This recipe was fantastic. I made only three slight changes. Besides doubling the sauce portion, I rinsed the olives ever so quickly to help eliminate the possibility of too much salt, and I added about one cup of artichoke hearts (not marinated) to the sauce. I used a nice, dry chardonnay and served the pork and sauce over linguine. Soooo good! I will definitely be making this again--and soon! We had a zucchini saute on the side and a loaf of pugilese bread. I felt like a fancy chef! Thank you, Deltaqueen50!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Very tasty zucchini bread. I subbed mini-chocolate chips for the nuts---very tasty! I did use about 3 cups of shredded zucchini. I wouldn't use any less. I also peeled my zucchini so my kids wouldn't be freaked out by the green flecks. It just tasted like a very moist cinnamon-chocolate bread.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
Okay, ya'll. You can't compare these to the St****ck's muffins. Why not? Because these muffins are made with ingredients you can PRONOUNCE. No fake stuff here. These are delicious muffins. Sure, many of us AR cooks tweak things. That should go without saying. But please don't compare a perfectly lovely, though basic, recipe to some plastic, $2.95 chain-sold "ideal."

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
This is a great soup! If you love potato soup, I definitely recommend this one. I omitted the red pepper flakes (little mouths over here). And I used spinach, which was okay the first night, but not so good when it was reheated. I really vacillated about using kale, but next time I will for sure. Oh, and I would recommend peeling the potatoes (just in case you're like me and skip this step when you can). I used a mix of russets (peeled) and reds (unpeeled) and found that the red potato skins were an annoying distraction in the soup. We served this up with plenty of freshly cracked black pepper for that added zip.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Delicious! I used a pork butt--way more flavor than a tenderloin. But since I didn't want all of that fat, I trimmed as much off of the pork as I could before cooking it. I actually cooked mine on low overnight, then refrigerated the pork--crock and all--while I went about my day. A few hours before dinner, I skimmed the hardened fat off the pork and shredded it, removing the chunks of solidified fat (gross, I know) as I went. Then I drained the crock, mixed in some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and warmed up the pork on low for a couple of hours. Served it with a vinegar-based coleslaw. Very yummy!

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
This is a great basic pumpkin cake recipe. The pumpkin flavor is pretty mild, so if you're looking for a really pumpkin-y cake, this is probably not it. We do enjoy more spice in our pumpkin cake, so I added 1 tsp. nutmeg and 1/2 tsp. cloves, along with 2 *heaping* tsp. of cinnamon. I did not change anything else, except to bake it in a 10" bundt pan for 45 minutes. It came out great. Topped it with a light cream cheese glaze--yum!
