Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Other than using splenda for the sugar, I made this as written. Strange directions (low temp/putting it in the freezer?!) but it worked! Very good taste. Mine made a 9x13 cake plus a small 7-inch round cake. Thanks for sharing.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
First off, I have to say that I absolutely hate coffee, so I was really hesitant to put the coffee in, as I figured I would taste it. Whenever I eat something with coffee flavoring, and someone says, "Oh you won't even taste it" - I taste it. With this recipe I did not taste it at all. The flavor of this cake is really good. I made 24 cupcakes out of this and frosted them with a cream cheese frosting. Will definitely make again. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I used green bell pepper instead of green chile peppers, used sharp cheddar cheese instead of swiss and added a few tablespoons of Trader Joe's black bean and corn salsa to give it a little kick. This was SO good and I can see where you could use many different vegetables in it. Will definitely make again.

Creamy Peach Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Mine cooked for quite a bit longer than the time called for, and my topping didn't quite get browned - maybe because I left out the almonds? This was very easy to prepare but didn't have that "wow" factor for me, even though everyone at work liked it. Thanks for sharing!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I used splenda for baking (1 cup) in place of regular sugar, added one "old" banana, about 1/4 cup of lite sour cream, and a little less oil. Made one big loaf and 7 muffins. Even tho I changed it a little bit, this is an excellent zucchini bread recipe and I will be using it again. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Vanilla Cupcakes, the Best Ever!

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
Wow! These were incredibly good and very easy to make. Although I could never get mine to look like the picture (I didn't use fondant), the icing was perfect with the cake. Got rave reviews at work!

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
I used unflavored gelatin and didn't get the "artificial" strawberry jello taste some reviewers complained about. Cut the strawberries into very small pieces - found crushing was kinda hard - and made it in a springform pan that I put foil around so nothing would run out. Also used traders joes white cake mix - perfect size and it was really good! Thanks for the great recipe - will definitely make again!

Chocolate Banana Cream Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
I made this in 2 9-inch round pans, using a box mix that I added a package of chocolate pudding mix to. I think I used too much hot fudge sauce, as my bananas kept slipping off the first layer! But that was definitely my fault. I added a banana to the cool whip/pudding mixture and left out the banana flavoring. I had a lot of extra cool whip/pudding mix left, so I ended up putting it over the entire cake (top and sides) but that was a good thing. It looked beautiful! The taste was so good! Will definitely make again. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

Applesauce Cake IV

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Although easy to make, this was just okay for me and didn't have quite the flavor I was hoping for, and I was hoping this would taste better the next day, but it got stale very quickly. Other than using my own applesauce, and not chopping the raisins, I left everything else as directed.

Rocky Road Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Other than not putting in the nuts, I made these as written. I guess I am in the minority on these - while they were very easy, the coconut was very "squishy" for lack of a better word and the sweetened condensed milk was way too sweet in these (and I like sweet!)

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
This was super easy and very good. I used about a half a bottle of a non-hot wing sauce and used an entire dry packet of the hidden valley ranch dressing mix. I also added two "to go" packages of Dave's Sassy Barbeque Sauce - they probably have about a tablespoon each in the packages - to the mixture. Put this on a toasted roll. It was SO good! Thanks so much for the recipe - I'll be making it again and sharing it with my (grown) kids.

Broccoli Cheese Soup V

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I roasted fresh broccoli in the oven, then added it to the warmed chicken broth. I also used all freshly grated monterey jack cheese, and added garlic powder and celery salt. I also added about a tablespoon of mascarpone cheese (since it was about to expire) at the end. This was SO good! Can't wait to make again. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Really, really good cake - especially right out of the oven! I used splenda for the sugar, half wheat flour/half white flour and grated half of the apples/chopped the other half. This was very easy to make and has a great taste. Thanks for sharing!

Betty Baker's Strawberry Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Wow! This was really good. I did use a bit less of the jalapeno peppers (personal taste) but it was still really great. Good to make for a crowd to use as an appetizer. Thanks for sharing!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
The taste of these were fantastic. However, I did have to add about 1/2 cup more flour to get them to rise a bit higher, cause that's how I like them. I also used butter in place of the shortening and added a touch of vanilla. These were very buttery tasting and very crispy without breaking apart all over the place. I also baked mine for quite a bit fewer minutes (9-10) but it may have been the size cookie I was making. I think this is one of those "you can add anything to it" recipes - different chocolate chips, more or less sugar, different flavorings, etc. Thanks for the great recipe.

Dog Treats I

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Very easy recipe. I made half a batch and added a bit of peanut butter (1/3 cup or so). Cut them into little one-inch heart sized treats. My dogs came in from outside while these were baking - coincidence or not? They loved them. These do not spread on the sheet at all while cooking, so they can be put very close together.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I guess I am the minority on this, and I so wanted to love it! Other than using splenda for the sugar, I didn't change anything. Even though it was very moist, I thought it was just a bit bland, so I'll look elsewhere for the perfect cornbread recipe.

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I really wanted to love this recipe, but it was just okay for me. I ended up mixing the chocolate chip mixture into the "top" layer and just kind of pressed it on top of the dough. I made it in a slightly smaller pan, so I had to bake it for about 10-15 minutes more than called for. It was a bit dry and just didn't wow me, but I think with some minor changes or additions, it could be a very good recipe.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
This was extremely easy to make, and even though I increased the cocoa powder to one cup, I didn't think it was a "wow" cake. But it's a great cake to make as a standby because I think most people would have all the ingredients on hand. Thanks for the recipe!

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
Very good and very easy to make. I didn't use the olive oil and added an entire bag of baby spinach leaves, as they cook down to almost nothing. I also added a bit of parmasan cheese at the end. Very good and I can't wait for the leftovers! Next time I'll experiment with different cheeses and maybe some other vegetables too. Thanks for the great recipe.
