Simple Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2004
This syrup is the best! I took the advice of others and did 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown. It turned out great. I wasn't watching it that good on the stove and it started to boiled, but I think that helped with the consistency. I stored it in a salad dressing tupperware. I will use this from now on and never buy store-bought maple syrup again! Thanks for the great recipe!

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.

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
I really liked this recipe. I had all the ingredients and it was a good change from traditional spaghetti. The flavor was good and simple and most importantly, my picky family liked it. I will make again most definately! Thanks!

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.

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!

Mexican Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2006
This marinade is way good. I didn't use the peppers or the garlic. I used powder for both instead. I highly recommend making salmon tacos with this, topped with the mango salsa from this site. Way good!

Southwestern Grilled Chicken with Lime Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
This is sooo yummy! You must make the butter too. It really compliments the chicken. I too used a jalepeno instead of a serrano. I also used chicken breasts and pounded them flat to about 1/2 inch. They cooked up really quick on the grill and were so tender too. Thanks for the unique & tasty recipe!

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!

Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
This is sooooo yummy. I accidently bought hashbrowns with peppers and onions and really feel that's what made the dish. I took this dish to a birthday potluck. It was gone so fast and everybody commented on the zing. Will definately make again. Thanks.

Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
This turned out really good. I added a half of a large, white onion when the broccoli was added. And also used canned chicken. When it was time to add the paste, I mixed some of the watery soup to the paste to smooth it out. I think that was the key for no lumps. I had tons of leftovers too and they were great the next day. Everybody who I shared with, raved!

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.

English Toffee

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
If you've made this and it didn't turn out, you need to read the review from 12/20/03 LCDOYLE. I did, and it turned out perfectly. Also, when the recipe says bring to a boil, that means to crank the heat up. Don't leave it on Med Low. You'll not get anywhere. Good luck! This is a great recipe.

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.

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
These are super. I did make some changes...I cut the recipe in half and just used 1 lb ground beef. I didn't use french bread, but used 1/4 cup of Italian bread crumbs. I cut the water down to 1/2 cup instead of 3/4. Oh, I didn't have fresh romano cheese, so I used the dried Parmesan/Romano blend and I only used 1/4 cup. I didn't have fresh parsley either, so I used fresh basil. Honestly, I kind of made my own meatball, but they were super good. Thanks for the base!

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. :-)

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
This was really good. I did make a change & that was I used regular milk and then added about 1 tsp of coconut extract. The flavor was great that way. I also recommend a tsp or so of salt & next time I won't add tomatoes or at least a full can. That many tomatoes was too much and it made the curry more orange than the traditional yellow color.

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.

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.

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.
