Buttermilk Syrup

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
After sampling a buttermilk syrup at a local farmer's market, I thought I'd try and track down a recipe I could make at home. I am soooo happy I found this recipe. It's very similar and doesn't cost nearly as much to make as they were charging at the market ($7 for a little tub!) I am going to make & bottle this up for my neighbor's for Christmas present, along with pancake mix. Thank you so much for the fabulous recipe!!!----2nd Review: K, I made this a 2nd time & purposely omitted the baking soda. It's sooo much better. It doesn't have a bitter, baking soda taste like the first batch & it's a pretty, white color. It does have to cook a little longer & thickens up upon sitting on a heating pad off the stove. I like it even better the 2nd way.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
Words cannot describe how I feel about this recipe. It's soooo good. I was skeptical that it could really taste fresh with canned tomatoes, but it truly does. I didn't change a thing and it was mild and flavorful. When you originally chop your onions, leave them a little on the big side, that way when you blend them, they won't be puried and be overpowering. Also, don't over blend the salsa. After reading reviews, it seems some have complained about the consistency, that it's too runny. I didn't drain my tomatoes, but only pulsed my blender a few times. The consistency was perfect. I've eaten chips and salsa for lunch 2 days in a row now. I'm addicted and will make this regularly. Thanks so much!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
Wow! Okay, I know what needs to be done to make this recipe perfect. After reading the disappointing reviews, I made the following changes. In addition to the 1 ounce of semi sweet chocolate, I added 1/3 cup of cocoa powder. I also reduced the chocolate chips to 1/2 cup. I refrigerated about 4 hours & baked at 350 for 12 minutes. I also did not grease the pan and the cookies came off great. These turned out perfect! Great sweetness, nice and chocolately, chewy and moist, yet crispy.

Cranberry Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I've made this recipe, but decreased the sugar to 1/2, 1 lime & 2 jalepenos. Soooo yummy. The best thing you can do though, is dump the salsa over a cube of cream cheese. It's so pretty too. Serve with tortillas chips and/or crackers.

Cranberry Chicken I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I needed a recipe for a snowy, fall day & this recipe was perfect! The chicken was so moist & flavorful with plenty of sauce to spoon over the top. If you have members of your family who don't care of cranberries, but you do, make this! You wouldn't even know that the recipe was titled cranberry chicken if you saw it & the taste is so dynamic that you can't really pin-point what's in it. Only use 1 packet of the onion soup mix. That is plenty & it won't over power like other reviewers have complained about.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
This cookie is delicious & very pretty. The only thing I changed was I added a splash of almond extract to the batter & after tasting the end result, I think the orange zest (which I accidentally added 1tsp) over powered it. I used a big cookie scoop, probably 1/4 cup & cooked for 16 mins. Perfect! It made 21 cookies. Perfect for the holidays. Thank you!

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
These worked out really good in the turkey noodle soup I made. I made the noodles the same day as the soup. They took longer to dry than I anticipated, so I ended up using my hair dryer on them. It worked pretty good and the noodles were delicious!

Black Beans with Bacon

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
This was way good. I simplified the recipe by using canned beans and I precooked my bacon in the microwave, reserving the drippings to add to the mix. I served it over rice and served along side the Jamaican Jerk Chicken from this site and couldn't get enough. It is very good the next day too, but the bacon goes soggy. Next time I will not stir the bacon in, but sprinkle on individual servings. Thank you! Will make again.

Zucchini Soup III

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2006
Mmmmmm...This is so good. I halved everything in the recipe except the spices. I also didn't have celery, so in its place, just used a bit of celery salt and added more zucchini. The only liquid is in the stewed tomatos, so I found I had to add water or else I'd be left with not much 'soup' just veggies. Way good though. I will surely make again!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
This is seriously delicious! I did make some adjustments...I added a splash of almond extract to the batter & then baked in a bundt pan. I then made an amaretto glaze. Hello! Delicious. When you're done baking, poke holes in the bottom of the cake with a toothpick. Boil 1/2 cup of amaretto for 1 min. (if you want it kid friendly) Otherwise, just combined 1/2 cup amaretto with 1 cup powdered sugar, another splash of almond extract & 3 T milk. Whisk it together & then strain the any sugar chunks. Poor half of it on the cake. Let it sit for 20 mins, dump the cake out, poke holes on the top & then poor the rest of the glaze over the cake/bread. It's sooooo yummy & can certainly be served as a desert.

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
Holly moley! My sister-in-law made this and it is the best. It smells sooo good and even better is its taste. She made it with the orange glaze and didn't add as many chocolate chips. It was perfect & now I'll be making it. :-)

Cola Pot Roast I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
Mmmmmm. Today will be my 3rd time making this within a month! My only suggestion is to do it in the crockpot. It's sooo much better that way. I've done it both that way and in the oven. Also, I've subsituted the onion for dried and the celery for celery salt (I just used celery salt instead of regular salt.) It's a must try!

Easy Swedish Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
I've never eaten or made a Swedish Apple Pie before, so I didn't know what to expect. I thought the crust would be crumbly, but it's more like a cobbler. Sooo yummy. This was super good and way easy to make. I also had all the ingredients, so I'll probably fall back on this recipe a lot. Another plus is the cooking time isn't long in comparison to other's I've seen. I served mine with vanilla ice cream... Mmmmm, I want more right now! Thank you!

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
This was so yummy! I omitted the paprika because I didn't have any. Oops. I also used garlic powder too. I served it with sautéed zucchini, onion & yellow squash over angel hair pasta. Was even great chilled the next day.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
These are way good and the calories show it! I rolled my first batch into 1 inch balls, but realized if I kept that up, I'd be making a lot more than the recipes says. So, I made the 2nd batch of balls a little bigger. I do like the smaller balls though. They are more in porportion.

Lemon Chess Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
What is a chess pie anyway? Well, after making this, I describe it as a lemon bar. It's the same texture and flavor as a lemon bar, yet doesn't have that unappealing eggy flavor. If you're looking for something tart, look elsewhere. This was tastey and low cal.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
The first time I made this I used bottled lemon juice. It was nasty. I made it again using fresh squeeze lemons and mmmm, good! For the 1 1/2 cups juiced, I used 4 LARGE lemons. I didn't make the simple syrup, I just threw it all together and it was great. I even turned it into a slush in my electric ice cream maker and it was awesome. Thanks!

Sizzling Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: May 5, 2006
This is way good and will now be a family staple. Instead of adding 2 tsp of chili powder, I used 1 tsp chili powder and 1 tsp of cumin. I used fresh squeezed lime juice and didn't add any lime juice to the veggies, as other reviews said that the lime flavor was a little overpowering. Turned out great. Not too spicy either, just flavorful.

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I think this was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Seriously, and I make a lot of good desserts. I used small gala apples & store bought, pillsbury pie dough. I just cut each pie crust into 6 strips, wrapping 2 strips up & around opposite of each other on each apple. It worked out great. I think I'm going to make this a lot now. My family couldn't believe how good these were. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
