Vinegar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Just made these the night before last, and realized that I need to let the world know how good these are! They are truly fantastic. They remind me of Pecan Sandies, only better. I have made them with both walnuts and pecans. I made them with pecans last, because that is what I had on hand. You could also call them 'Butter Pecan Cookies' this way; it sounds a little more appetizing than Vinegar Cookies. I love how this recipe requires only a few ingredients, most of which you will already have. The only cons that I can think of is that the dough can be a little crumbly and dry, so I had to work the dough into flattened balls by hand before putting them on the cookie sheet(but it's worth it). They also seem to cook faster the closer you get to the bottom of the bowl, so I would look in the oven at about 15 minutes. They are also a delicate, crispy cookie, so you need to store carefully if you are going to gift these. These are definitely gift-worthy cookies!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I didn't know how to add to my previous review....I had to add that you CAN make this the night before. Don't be afraid. This makes the cake even more awesome for me, because I have three kids. To be able to make a cake, in peace, after I put them to bed and it be wonderful the next day is.....a blessing. Enjoy!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I made this recently for my mother and grandmother(who are excellent cooks--talk about pressure!). It really was excellent. I was so proud(and relieved!). I didn't even use fresh basil or parsley or garlic! I used dried for the basil and parsley, and jarred minced garlic, because that is what I had on hand. I also simply used canned tomatoes. (Sorry...I have three small kids...I have to cut corners where I can!) It may taste better following the recipe exactly; but, we didn't miss a thing! It was delicious! Oh....I also used ground Italian sausage(Johnsonville, I think), instead of links. That way I didn't have to touch the meat to remove casings! I don't think you can wrong. I'm gonna make it tonight!

Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
I think this stuff is AWESOME!!! You couldn't have a simpler recipe. Two ingredients, people!!! It tastes too good. I make this for just about any gathering at my house, because it always gets eaten. Just remember to let your cream cheese soften before you mix. It is a lot easier this way. Also I stick my rubber scraper in very hot water to help to get the sticky marshmallow cream out of the jar. Enjoy!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2005
I think chili is one of those things in which we all expect something slightly different. I think that this is a really good recipe, or at least the the base to a really great chili. I have made it at least 3 times now. I made it in a slow cooker/crockpot for the first time yesterday....came out thinner than in my soup pot, so keep that in mind(nonetheless, I thought it was my best tasting batch yet). I like a little more beans so I bought a bigger can of pinto beans. I also put a small can of diced tomatoes for chili in the pot(my husband doesn't like chunks of tomatoes). If I have any tomato products that I want to clean out of my fridge(ex. salsa, chili sauce, etc.), I throw those in too. I also use 3 tablespoons of brown sugar instead of the white. And I am usually doubling the spices(except for the chili powder and I haven't tried cayenne pepper yet). I really don't think you can go wrong with this. I get compliments everytime. Since I am new to making chili, I keep referring to this one to make sure I get at least the basics in. Try it. Taste it. And if you need to...modify to your taste. That's what I do. Then I usually put it on top of some macaroni noodles and top that with sharp cheddar, chopped onion, and Fritos....YUM!!!

Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2005
I just got done eating ANOTHER bite of this cake. Unfortunately, I have been doing that all day long!!! I made it for company last night and I am being tempted with what is left of this large delicious cake! This was the first time making this cake...I was pleasantly surprised. If you like chocolate, I don't see how you wouldn't like this cake. It is moist and rich, but not too rich where you say you can't eat it(obviously I am not having that problem). I made it in a 10x15 pan, that I thought was only good for making my cookies. I used Baker's Joy cooking spray to grease my pan(very easy). This is a thinner cake, but I liked it the way it was. You have a better icing to cake ratio this way :) I suggest starting the icing approx. 10 minutes prior to the cake coming out of the oven. That way the cake is done right when you are done with the icing.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
I made this recipe with my husband and son last week. I liked it very much. However, if you are looking for a true gingerbread tasting cookie, this is NOT it. I tried this recipe because I thought my 3 year old would turn his nose up to real gingerbread. I would describe this as a cross between a gingerbread cookie and a butter/sugar cookie. It was great. My cookies did not run. They looked great and tasted great. They had a nice soft texture. If you have to go out and get butterscotch pudding.....you better get one or two more boxes because we didn't get that many cookies out of this. We had a blast making them. Fun to eat too! It made a nice mild tasting gingerbread cookie. I was very pleased.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
I was looking for a peanut butter cookie recipe, because I have this big honkin' thing of peanut butter in my cabinet. I just got done making these cookies and I'll tell you....they were pretty darn good. I didn't have quick oats, so I used the old fashioned oats that I did have. I did cut back just a smidge on the salt, because of what some of the reviews said about the cookies tasting salty. Other than that, I followed the recipe and didn't add anything extra. My 3yr old helped me make them :) They were easy to make. They turned out pretty. And they tasted great! My son and I each had four!! Yikes!! I really can't think of anything negative to say about them. I really liked this cookie, and I really don't get too excited about peanut butter cookies. If you are reading this, then you obviously are looking to make a PBC, so try this recipe. I think you'll be pleased. I was. I was able to fit 15 small to average size cookies on an average sized cookie sheet(5 rows of 3). I ended up with almost 6 dozen cookies. Enjoy! I hope this helped.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
I made this quiche last weekend. It was very good. I will definitely make it again. I didn't have mushrooms, so I just left them out. Quiche tasted great without em. I did have too much filling for one pie crust. I even bought a deep dish one. So next time, I am going to buy regular size and I am willing to bet I'll have enough for two excellent quiches!

Aunt Johnnie's Pound Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
I am rating this recipe again, because I didn't care for it and previously gave it a poor review. However, I gave half to my mother who took it to bible study to share and half to my grandmother and both called me back with so many great reviews of the cake. I think I like yellow pound cake. This isn't like that. But like I mentioned before it got RAVE reviews....so I guess all I can say is try it!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2005
Just got through making this recipe for the first time. I gave it five stars because it was very easy to make and the outcome was a good tasting, good looking waffle. It tastes like what you'd expect from a traditional waffle. I don't make waffles too often, but I would use this recipe again when the time comes.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2005
I made this recipe for the third time today and realized that I needed to give credit where credit is due. I really like it because it is very, very easy to make. It makes an excellent side dish. I also made it once in place of corn bread muffins. You obviously don't eat it like a muffin, but it has a similar taste and sometimes my cornbread turns out dry; but, this is a no brainer and has turned out perfect and the same each time. I gave this five stars because it is easy and it is good; I really can't complain. I don't know if I would describe it as awesome, because I can't help but wonder if something added might make it better. I think that extra something might be bacon or green chilis or red pepper. I just haven't got around to experimenting. This recipe reminds me of a good comfort food. I think some extra ingredients could very well make it AWESOME!

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: May 26, 2005
Gosh, after reading so much praise about this recipe. I hate to say, but I was disappointed. It was an extremely simple recipe. They are the most attractive CCCs that I have ever made. I think they have the best texture too, slightly crisp edges with a chewy middle. However, they just didn't taste that good to me. I first tasted the dough and I was like...ugh, I hope the cookies are better. Unfortunately, they didn't. I used the grocery store brand chocolate chips(because they were on sale). So, I might try this recipe with Tollhouse chips. If the cookies taste the same, I will not use this recipe again. I'll let you know.......

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2005
I made this for my parents. Before tasting it my mother said, "I'm sorry, but without cinammon, it is not going to be apple pie." She soon found herself eating her words, as well as my pie. My dad couldn't get enough. I will still make your typical apple pie(occassionaly); however, I will definitely make this again and again, because it was so easy. You can memorize this recipe; it is so simple. With a ready made crust and the use of a apple/corer/slicer, I can have this oven ready in ten minutes. Thank you for an excellent recipe.

Lemon Supreme Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
I tried this recipe. I really like the tart lemon filling. I received much praise. My mother and grandmother complimented me, which is nice because they are the pie pros. I used regular sized unbaked pie crusts. I am an amateur in the kitchen, so I didn't know where to get deep-dish. This recipe was more than enough to fill two pie shells. I will make this recipe again. It will be great this summer. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 26, 2004
I just finished baking this recipe. I made a small loaf and 2 dozen mini muffins. They turned out delicious. I substitued walnuts for pecans, because that is what I had at the time. I definitely will use this recipe again. My picky eater, 2 year-old son already ate three mini muffins! I greased my pans with a generous amount of shortening, no sticking! I think I will stick with this recipe for banana bread.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 11, 2004
I went to a barbeque this past weekend and brought these cookies. I received many compliments. I only gave this recipe four stars because I can't say that I'll never try another recipe. My cookies were attractive. The dough was easy to work with, not sticky at all after chilling and flouring surface and rolling pin. The cookies did taste good. However, they did not taste that great without icing. The texture of the cookie was somewhat cake-like. The cookies stayed soft for days; but, I think I'd prefer something more chewy. I used Wilton's Ready-To-Ice Cookie Icing, which is very good for covering the cookies, not so good for writing or details. I am very inexperienced in the kitchen, so I was very pleased with my end result. I would recommend trying this recipe. I am just not convinced that this is the best out there.
