Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2004
This frosting recipe is awesome!!! I made it for my daughter's birthday cake, and I also made two shamrock cakes for my kids to take to school on St. Patrick's day! All of the teacher's wanted to know where I bought the cakes!! It tastes great and is very easy to decorate with. Thanks Rick!

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Delicious! My first time making pumpkin pie with fresh pumpkin, and it was worth the little bit of extra effort. For those of you wanting to make 2 pies, don't double the recipe. Only take the recipe times 1-1/2, and you will have enough filling to fill 2 deep dish Pet Ritz pie crusts, with none left over. Will be making this one again, that's for sure. Thanks for the recipe!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
These pancakes are delicious! Very light and fluffy. I cut the recipe in half and got 16 pancakes (using 1/4 cup batter for each). My two kids and I ate our fill, and I plan to freeze the rest! We topped ours with "Buttermilk Syrup", also from this site. This one is going in the recipe box! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Basic Cheese Polenta

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
We really enjoyed this. My husband is Italian, and grew up eating polenta (the real stuff, not the stuff you find in a tube at the grocery store). It's hard to find the dry polenta near us, but this is just as good. We will definitely be making this again and again. Thanks for the recipe!

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
We really enjoyed this. I didn't have any red pepper on hand, so I subbed red onion. I also had some mushrooms that needed to be used up, so I added them as well. The only suggestion that I would have is to start the potatoes about 20 minutes before the rest of the vegetables if you like your veggies crisp-tender. This way the potatoes can be cooked through without overcooking the rest of the veggies. Hubby liked it a lot too! Thanks for the recipe.

Buttermilk Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
Very good pie. The only change I made was I used cinnamon instead of nutmeg, as other reviewers suggested. Next time I might cut the sugar back to 1 cup, as it is kind of sweet. Thanks for the recipe.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
This is an excellent basic cranberry sauce. In the past, I always made a version with nuts and apples in it, but my family doesn't care for it, and I end up eating it all myself. This year I decided to try something different. The only changes I made were I added some grated orange zest and about 1/4 tsp of cinnamon (because I saw Tyler Florence make a similar version yesterday on Food Network, and he used a cinnamon stick & grated orange zest). Excellent! I highly recommend.

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
These were very tasty. I followed the recipe - but did add a dab of butter at the end. Just like the hibachi grilled version at your local Japanese restaurant! Thanks for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Very good dressing. Easy to put together, and I love the idea of cooking it in the slow cooker to save on oven space on busy holidays. As other reviewers mention, only add broth as needed to moisten. You can always add more if need be, but you can't take it away once you've added it. Will use this recipe again. Thanks.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
mommyof2 - you must have done something wrong! I followed the recipe, the only exception was that I added about 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips and baked mine in two 7" x 3" pans for 45 minutes. They turned out perfect. Moist and delicious. A great recipe, which I will be making over and over. Thanks.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
I made four batches of this and gave them out as Christmas presents. I followed the recipe exactly, and made 6 little loaves per recipe instead of 3 bigger loaves. They were done after exactly 45 minutes of baking. Everyone that I gave them to loved it, and I've received many requests for the recipe. I will definately do this again next year, as well as for Thanksgiving. My 4 year old LOVES it!

Judy's Hearty Vegetable Minestrone Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
This was delicious, and I would make it again in a heart beat. I used 4 cups vegetable bouillon (2 bouillon cubes / 4 cups water), cannellini beans and just added some fresh/frozen basil, as I didn't have any canned diced tomatoes with the basil included. It is a very hearty soup, with not a lot of liquid. You can always add more broth if you prefer it that way, but I enjoyed it just as is.

Coconut Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2014
These are a lovely little truffle, which taste kind of like an almond joy, but with walnuts instead of the almonds. Couple of notes about the recipe: I made a half batch and got close to 60 truffles (using my 1" cookie scoop), so the 36 truffles for a full batch has to be incorrect. It didn't say what kind of chocolate chips to use (milk chocolate, semi-sweet, dark, etc), so I used a 12 oz. package of semi-sweet. It wasn't quite enough to coat all 60 of my truffles, so I quickly melted two cubes (from a 24 oz. package / 12 cubes per package) of chocolate bark. Also want to mention that I used my electric mixer to beat the butter, powdered sugar and condensed milk - but then switched to a wooden spoon when stiring in the coconut and walnuts. It was REALLY thick, and hard to mix (I actually broke the little wooden spoon that I was using), so I added a splash of milk and switched to a heavier wooden spoon to mix the rest. To decorate, I melted a cube of white chocolate in the microwave and put it in a Wilton disposable decorator bag fitted with a #3 tip. Just a litle drizzle over the truffles really makes them pretty.

Parmesan Roasted Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
This was a nice savory alternative to the normal brown sugar/butter acorn squash recipes. We loved it! I did peel the squash (just as a personal preference). The parmesan cheese really adds a nice touch. Thanks!

Savory Baby Bok Choy

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
This was delicious, even though I over-cooked the bok choy a bit too much. Will make again. Thanks!

White Fiber Mini Shells with Cherry Tomatoes, Basil and Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2014
My husband and I have been making pasta like this for years. While we usually use spaghetti, the white fiber mini shells were a nice change of pace. Simple, fresh ingredients are the key to great Italian cooking, and this recipe is a great example of that. Delizioso!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
The submitter is right - the possibilities are endless! I improvised to use up what I had on hand. I didn't have any green onion, so I just used a small yellow onion. Skipped the tofu (I don't think I've ever purchased tofu before!) I also only made 1 cup of rice (to 2 cups water), which was plenty for our family of 4. We gobbled this right up. I will definitely make this again. It's quick, easy and tasty!

Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
These were excellent. Even my husband, who doesn't usually like biscuits said they were great and asked me to make them again. Here's what I did: I put the dry ingredients in my food processor and pulsed just until combined. Then I added the butter, nice and cold, and cut into slices. I pulsed just a few times until crumbly. You don't want to over-mix, otherwise your biscuits will not come out flaky. Then I added the buttermilk and cheese and just pulsed until the dough came together, but only slightly. I dumped out onto my countertop, and only kneaded like once or twice, just to bring it all together. I formed it into a circle, and then used a glass to cut out the biscuits. While they were baking, I put 1/4 cup butter in the microwave to melt. I added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, 1/8 tsp of garlic salt and 1/2 tsp of parsley flakes to the melted butter. Brush on biscuits when they are hot. Yumm-O

HERDEZ® Drowned Beef Sandwich with Chipotle Sauce (Torta Ahogada)

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2013
These sandwiches hit the spot! The Herdez Chipotle cooking sauce adds such a nice smoky flavor, and one heck of a kick! My husband loved it and ate 2 sandwiches! I DID start with bd.weld's slow roasted beef recipe (also from this site), and OMG - it was so good! I put my new meat slicer to work today (it just arrived yesterday)! Can't wait to make this one again!

Watermelon Cooler Slushy

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Loved it! I had some watermelon that was a bit overripe for just plain eating, and it worked great in this recipe. I didn't measure the lime juice, just used the juice from 2 limes. Very refreshing drink to go with our grilled salmon salads tonight for dinner! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
