Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
These were pretty good, as is ,but I gave 4 stars because I think they could use a bit more flavor. Next time I think I'll add brown sugar instead of white, the white sugar left the crust a bit flat tasting.. but all in all they were good!

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
OMG I love this recipe.. its one of those -don't even think about the calories and enjoy- cakes! I've also 1/2 the recipe and made in a bread pan and served like a pound cake. One tip.. let the cake air dry for a while so the syrup gets a slight crust to it.. adds a nice texture like a glazed donut.. so yummy!

Grandma's Polish Perogies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
The dough worked out great!! My first time making these so I 1/2 the recipe (just in case it didn't work) and ended up getting about 20. I am going to adjust the filling next time to make the potatoes a bit creamier.. but all in all.. amazing!!

Snowflake Truffles

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Great flavor! But, mine ended up quite mushy. I think the filling may need more to bind it together and for me, there was too much cream added to the chocolate so it didn't set up hard enough. I am going to play with this recipe though and try to improve it because the flavor was AWESOME!!

French Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I tried these last night.. great recipe! I soaked them for about an hour. Drained well, then layed them out on a towel while the oil heated (used Canola oil). I blanch fried them and it worked perfectly! Light, crispy fries. I didn't get an overly sweet taste.. just clean potato taste came through

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
Made this tonight into mini cupcakes.. came out great but did have a bit of a flour taste to them.. next time I think I'll add a bit more sugar and vanilla. Really a great base recipe though!!

Cheesy Italian Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Great recipe! I did use fresh Parm instead of Romano cheese but other than that followed the recipe. Turned out wonderful! The second time I made it I turned it into a pepperoni bread by rolling the dough out.. layering sliced pepperoni and motz cheese.. then rolled it up like a jelly roll and baked. SO SO yummy!

Byrdhouse Marinated Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Love this recipe!! I sauteed my mushrooms in a bit of EVOO first (I don't like raw mushrooms) and also added EV Olive Oil instead of veg oil. Super yummy. I did add a bit more fresh basil too.. just cause I love it!! Great with steak or balsamic chicken!!

I love this recipe and make it once a week! I half the recipe and omit the salt and use lowfat sour cream to cut a small portion of the fat. Ugh love it!!

Butter Cream Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
This was really good frosting! I used butter flavored crisco & butter. Next time I think I might up the butter portion and add a bit less of the crisco. Don't get me wrong it was great I just think it need a slight tweak. I also added 1tsp almond extract and 1tsp vanilla. Got great reviews from everyone!!

Raspberry Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
Loved this recipe! I froze the mixture for about 3 hours and had no problems rolling into balls. I then placed them back in the freezer for about an hour then dipped the truffles in melted Dove chocolate. Then chilled!! Oh so yummy!!!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 5, 2002
I let my roast marinate overnight in the fridge. Also when the roast was done cooking, I sliced it and made a gravy with the juices by adding flour and water.. poured that over the meat and served with mashed potatoes and butter carrots. It was wonderful.. the gravy was very strong and tasty.. we put that only on the meat.. I felt it was too strong for the potatoes. All in all this recipe is now a permanent fixture in my recipe box! Plus when is cooks all day your house smells wonderful!!!
