Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2004
Absolutely delicious and couldn't be simpler. I made it as is. The only thing that stumps is why you make 2 loaves. I'm guessing it might not rise otherwise? Each loaf was between 2 nd 2 1/4 in. high. I like mine to be a bit higher so next time I'll see if it works making one with the entire recipe.

Toll House® Crumbcake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2006
The ingredients of this recipe differ from the order in the directions. The ingredients have the chips in the topping and the directions have it going in the cake. DO IT IN THE TOPPING!!! Much better.

Toll House Crumbcake II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2006
A little too much chocolate for me. I reduced to 1 1/2 cups in the cake and about 1/2 cup in the topping. Using mini morsels is good here too. Makes for a little lighter version. More cake.

Quick Fudge Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
The key is letting it completely cool. THEN it will be creamy. You can use it before as a drizzle. I used butter instead of shortening. Seemed healthier (if there could be such a thing as a 'healthy' frosting).

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
The key to getting chewy and not "cakey" brownies is to NOT use a mixer. I used a silicone spatula to mash and mix. Over mixing the batter will result in the chewy. These were great and I didn't make the frosting. I also topped the batter with a sprinkle of chocolate chips before placing it in the oven.

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
Overall this could be good but I didn't care for it. Maybe it was the acorn squash itself since I'd never had it before. I'm trying to cook more healthy meals for me and my family Just the same I gave it a good rating.

Pro Ganache

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
Oh this is just fabulous. Be sure to blend it thoroughly and ideally, let it chill overnight before using it whether you choose to use it as is or whip it up. I did not whip this up but I can imagine how light and delicious it would be. Once blended it blends into a watery consistency. After chilling it's smooth like pudding but not as stiff and thick as some frostings can be. It smoothes out as you apply it. I used this with the Crazy Chocolate Cake on this site for my daughter's 7th birthday and it was just delicious.

Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
I really like these. Not a really sweet cookie. I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves to add a little spice. I think had I not added this these might have been bland.

Pineapple Mojo Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
Delicious! A VERY moist cake. I had trouble squeezing the required 1 1/4 cup of pineapple juice from even a 20oz can of crushed pineapple and had to crack open a 20oz can of chunks to make it. So have an extra can of pineapple juice on hand. I also did as other recommended and added 1 tspn cinnamon instead of 1/2. Lastly, I made this in a 12 inch flat non-stick pan and had to cook it some 40-45 minutes.

Amby Rae's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2007
Yummy! I used a bit less sour cream as recommended everywhere in the ratings. I skipped the lemon juice and added probably a good teaspoon of ground dill. Added some tomato and vidalia onion and as recommended elsewhere added about a teaspoon of sugar.

Surprise Banana Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
I left out the nuts, used butter with salt in it (and left out the ex. 1/2 tspn salt) and added about 3/4 cup sour cream which I read moistens a cake. PERFECTION! Sour Cream Frosting, also from this site, topped it off.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
OMG this was just delicious. I did not have veg oil so I used 1 cup of apple sauce instead. My 8 year old LOVED this. And it makes 3 nice loaves. I made one in a pyrex loaf pan and found it cooked a bit slower than the metal pans. Just a quick FYI.

Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
Great recipe. I used the extra spices others suggested: thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, touch of cinnamon. I used 1/2 cup apple sauce and 1/2 cup chicken broth and added about a tablespoon of brown sugar to the drippings after I removed the chicken breasts.

Blissful Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
I thought this was delicious. I doubled the liquid part and while it baked, I cooked the excess in a pan and added some fresh rosemary and garlic to the duplicate what the chicken was cooking in. Then when the chicken was done, I added THAT liquid to the pan. Then I strained it to get a smooth liquid which I then put back in the pan and thickened slightly with about 2 tablespoons of cornstarch disolved in probabaly 1/4 cup of cold water. I served with rice. Also I wouldn't recommend using tenderloins unless you know you are getting a good slab of meat because I used tenderloins and ended up with oversized bite-sized pieces of chicken which wasn't bad but it wasn't what I had wanted.

Cheesy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
Delicious. The key is to make sure you wash your hands and use them to thoroughly combine the ingredients.

Marble Squares II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
This was GREAT!! You MUST use an electric mixer for this recipe. You need to take the time to beat the creamcheese and sugar until it is smooth. Makes all the difference. It creates mushy,gooey spaces in the brownies. Wonderful!

No Fail Pound Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
This was just delicious. I'd bet it would be good with a 1/4 cup of cocoa added too (which I plan to try next go round). I glazed the top with my 'Sour Cream Frosting' recipe (located on this site).

Loosemeat Sandwiches III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
I placed the tops of the buns on top of the meat while still in the pan to steam the buns; maybe for a minute. I also warmed the pickles and onion so that they would blend with the hot meat and added cheese. Tasted exactly like White Castles or Krystals (whichever you normally prefer). Will definitely make this again.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2005
Firm cake. Would probably be terrific using apples instead of blueberries. Simple and absolutely delicious. I followed this recipe exactly.
