Waffles I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
Excellent and easy; as another reviewer said they baked up great in my antique waffle maker-to me the only kind to use to get the waffles just like Mom used to make. However, I came on mainly to point out to sdrob that he/she made a huge mistake - you could try again with baking POWDER as the recipe says! They really are good when you follow the directions! Just saying...

Wacky Cake VIII

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
I just want to add my raves for this recipe. It is the first chocolate cake recipe given to me by a friend when I was a newlywed over 40 years ago. My husband and I loved it then for its deliciousness and its size (just right for 2), and the whole family loves it now for its taste, its moistness, and its ease of making with the kids. It doubles great, so am making it for a crowd today. We usually ate it without frosting, because it's so moist and yummy on its own - and we're not big frosting eaters. So glad to find it online, as I haven't made it for a while and have no time to scrounge for the piece of paper I wrote it on years ago.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
I made this recipe with a few changes. As other reviewers suggested, I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups, and added a dash of nutmeg. I also made this into 8 large muffins- to make them very tender I stirred in the sour cream, and then put the flour mixture in all at once and stirred it just until moistened. Oh, and I sprinkled the tops with coarse sugar and cinnamon. Yummy!

Soft Chocolate Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
Very yummy cookies. We added Andies Mint chips (you know, the little pieces they chop the imperfect mints into), and they were perfect in them. They make me glad I inadvertently melted a cup of butter instead of a cup and a half!

Angel Biscuits II

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
I've made various recipes for angel biscuits over the last 30+ years and my family has always enjoyed them. However,for some reason this recipe is even better than the version I usually use. I don't know why. Maybe it's the rising time or the fact there's less sugar in these, but they're just extra fluffy and tasty. My very picky 6-year old granddaughter said I had to go on Allrecipes and tell everyone they're the best! She obviously thinks so, because she ate 9 of them! Yes, that's right - a third of the recipe! I encourage everyone who likes biscuits to make these.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
My daughter has made these several times lately, and they are very, very good. She DOES add vanilla to the batter, uses butter instead of oil, and replaces the white sugar with brown and Demerara (raw washed cane sugar)sugars, both in the batter and in the topping. She also sometimes uses a spice mix from Pampered Chef called Cinnamon Plus which contains nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, orange peel, and cloves, in the topping. Contrary to one reviewer's comment, who felt the vanill dadin't make a difference, the vanilla doesn't come through as making the muffin taste like a vanilla cake, true, but it definitely DOES perk up the other flavors, rather the way a pinch of salt does, or the way vanilla is essential in many chocolate recipes. Just because you cannot taste it doesn't mean it hasn't made a difference. I'm sure they're terrific even without these changes, but they are fantastic with them. Oh, and she makes 12 muffins with this same recipe, and bakes for 18-20 minutes, and they're perfect.

Authentic Lebanese Fattoush

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I am finding that I just LOVE Lebanese, Armenian, and Greek recipes - this one sounds wonderful. I intend to try it tomorrow - just hope I can find the sumac and the purslane (sp?) here in Massachusetts. I wonder if there is a substitute for either one, if not - or where to find the two. I can almost taste the salad as I write - we had yummy tabbouleh tonight from this site - used a combination of suggestions plus my memories of the first tabbouleh I ever ate. This salad sounds rather like a "green" form of tabbouleh, with many of the same flavors!

Oatmeal Molasses Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
Delicious bread, and really easy. I made this as part of my Christmas gifts this year. I gave it away along with homemade peanut butter and homemade marshmallow creme. Fluffer-nutter kits!

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2006
This is a great cinnamon roll recipe - it tastes just like I expected, and the rolls are very soft and fluffy. I have another type of sweet roll recipe that also uses pudding mix in the dough, and I love it, so knew I'd love this one as well. I had no vanilla pudding mix, nor any instant mix at all for that matter. I used "cook and serve" butterscotch mix, and they turned out great. My family loved them. I will definitely be making them again.

Swedish Rye Bread I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2004
This sounds very much like the Swedish rye bread I loved as a child and have been trying to find. For the information of those reviewers who downrated the recipe because it was light and sweet: one doesn't EXPECT Swedish rye bread to be dense and heavy like pumpernickel or Jewish rye - it's a softer, sweeter rye, and in its own way just as delicious (some think more delicious than) as the heavier, more typical, ryes. I think the reviewers who found it too sweet and light just aren't familiar with Swedish rye bread. Each type has its place. I will be trying this one.
