Best Ever Chocolate-Free Blondies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Wow! I really liked this recipe. Of course I didn't follow the directions exactly, so let me tell you what I did. I changed the servings to 8 (so I wouldn't have to divide eggs.) I used dark brown sugar. I left out the cinnamon. I also left out the nuts and decreased the peanut butter chips by a lot. (I didn't measure.) Then I divided the batter into thirds (roughly) and cooked 1/3 of the batter in the microwave for 1 minutes and 10 seconds. It was SOOO good. Also, I tried 1/3 without peanut butter chips, and I liked it that way, too. Finally, I tried some without peanut butter chips and with marshmallow creme spread on top. That was also good. So...have fun and enjoy.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
This is my absolute favorite pancake recipe. I love how the pancake holds the syrup in so that each bite has a perfect infusion of flavor. I also love that the butter is in the batter. It is the perfect, tender, and delicious combination.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Delicious! When I saw some reviews saying the molasses flavor was too strong, I knew I would probably like it. My usual complaint is that there isn't enough molasses! I did double all the spices, except for the ginger. I prefer a milder ginger taste. I also took some reviewers advice and shortened the baking time. It took about forty-five minutes for me. The texture was perfect, the flavor was delicious, and the smell was heavenly.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
Great recipe! Everyone loves them! I did quite calling them blond brownies, though. By adding the chocolate chips, everyone thinks they are bar cookies. Either way - blond brownies or chocolate chip bar cookies - they are amazing!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
Mmmm. I rarely write reviews, but this recipe deserves one. I can understand why someone would request a bowl of this for a birthday! I made a quarter of the recipe and frosted an 9X13 cake (still in the pan). It made plenty for that. I also added almond extract since it was a chocolate cherry cake. TO be honest, the frosting was WAY better than the cake! Thanks for a perfect frosting recipe!

Old-Fashioned Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
I rated this as a five, because it really is superb. Personally, however, I will cut the sugar to half in the future. On the other hand, I love the zing that the vinegar gives it. Definitely add your own flavor with bacon, onion, etc.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Mmmm. This is a great pie. I also agree that the peanut butter is a bit sweet and cut down on the sugar. I didn't have any chocolate pudding mix so I made homemade pudding using Dbon's Hasty Chocolate Pudding Recipe. It was amazingly delicious, but makes the pie richer and sweeter than using a mix. When I make it again, I will make less peanut butter filling, because it was pretty thick. This is a recipe I'll share with friends.

Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
Yum! I took these cookies to a party and was surprised that even the kids were downing them. They were competing with chocolate pie, strawberry shortcake, fudge, etc and these were the first to disappear. I've already made them a couple of times and have given out several copies of the recipe.

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
I've made this frosting several times now. When I take the time to beat the sugar and butter together until the sugar is dissolved, it is delicious. It takes a solid six minutes, or longer, though. I've also substituted half the butter for peanut butter and that has worked well for a peanut butter frosting.

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
Yum! I didn't change much other than I didn't have poultry seasoning so used some thyme, rosemary, sage, crushed oregano, and parsley instead. I'll definitely make this soup again.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
I was skeptical... my pie crusts tend to be fine, but not amazing. This one delivered and was flat out the best crust I have ever made. The next time I make it I will cut the salt down. I also took another reviewer's advice and started with a quarter cup of water. I only needed about a teaspoon more than that for the perfect amount of liquid. Had I started with the full half cup, the dough would have been too sticky. I also froze the shortening before using it. That seemed to make it really easy to cut into the flour. I also think I could have gotten four crusts out of it (not deep dish), but I stuck with three for this round. Next time I will try four. Thanks for sharing Grandma's recipe!

Butter Pecan Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
Since I found this recipe two weeks ago, I've made it four times. I really love it. I like it as is and I like it with coconut. I have found that I need to bake it significantly longer than the recipe says, but that isn't enough to make me give it fewer stars. Here are my personal preferences: use chopped pecans, use 1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar and no white sugar, use 1 cup coconut, throw in a pinch of baking soda (about 1/4 tsp.). That combination works for me!

Mmmm. I used chicken stock and no ham, but it was delicious anyway.

Microwave Mississippi Mud Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
Wow! I've been experimenting with microwave cake recipes for a while now, and this one is by far the best I've tried. I did add some baking powder, so I can't say how the "original" recipe is, but with about 1/2 tsp baking powder, it was amazing. I've also made it with peppermint extract, which I loved. I don't like things too sweet, so I cut the sugar to half and didn't frost it. It was perfect for me. Also, quartering this recipe works really well.

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
Wow! Yum! I followed the directions pretty closely and my cake turned out to be perfectly delicious! I used a 10" round and it was the perfect size for me. I will say I was surprised at how much volume the cake had. It really does poof up. I did put some streusel in the middle as well. Also, after some mental debate, I put the top layer of streusel on the cake BEFORE putting it in the oven and it was perfect. My coworkers kept commenting that the cake had the perfect combination of crunchiness from the top layer, balanced with the delectable-ness of the rest of the cake. I really recommend trying the cake recipe as it is written before making too many changes. It was super yummy.

Real Strawberry Frosting

This is the most delicious strawberry frosting I have ever had. I can't wait to try it with different fruits to see if they are all equally amazing.

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I liked that these biscuits plumped up so well, but the taste of baking powder was TOO strong. If I make them again, I will half the baking powder and hope they are still fluffy. I will also roll them to 3/4 inch as suggested as they were so high they toppled when I rolled them one inch.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
I enjoyed this recipe. Like many other reviewers, I adjusted it to suit my taste. For me that meant less tahini, less lemon juice, less salt, more chickpea juice, and a (small) roasted red chili. The result was nice. I'll take another reviewer's suggestion and freeze most of it in single-serving packets.
