Cornbread Stuffing With Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
After some changes, this stuffing turned out alright. I have to say, I really think the 5 cups of bread crumbs is a misprint. I only put two cups of crumbs and about half a cup extra of chicken broth and it came out fine. Unless you like really dry stuffing, i wouldn't recommend this recipe.

Slow Cooker Ham with Pineapple

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
I thought this had a strange aftertaste. I'm sure that this isn't the recipe but the cut of ham, but mine was ridiculously salty.

Orange Cranberry Drops

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
You might as well bake cranberry bread because that is what the consistency of this cookie is like. It baked more like a muffin than a cookie. Ok taste, nothing spectacular. I made some orange icing for the top that made them tastier.

Melt In Your Mouth Blueberry Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I am giving it a 4 because without the changes I made, I don't think it would have been as yummy. I added a heaping handful of brown sugar to the butter/sugar mix..added extra vanilla and a dash of almond extract (totally transformed the flavor of the cake in my opinion) , and also added a few splashes of half and half bc I didnt want the cake to be too dry. I used frozen blueberries and just let them sit in cool water for a while and patted them dry before adding the flour. The cake is SO yummy, especially after adding a little cinnamon to the sugar topping. It created this delicious hard shell on the top. I have a feeling this cake will be even yummier tomorrow!!

Banana Spice Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
This recipe was just ok for me. It was very bland and definately just a tiny version of banana bread. But if youre looking for a mild cake-like cookie that you might have with breakfast (without icing of course) then you will like this recipe. I also have to add that the process of making the dough is new to me. Most cookie recipes will have you beat the butter/sugar and wet ingredients and then incorporate dry ingredients to it. I'm not sure why this recipe wanted you to add two amounts of flour separately, but I just went ahead and mixed it the way i know.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
These pretzels are pretty tasty when they first come out of the oven. They do taste just like the big pretzels you get at the mall. The first batch was gone within five minutes ! The kosher salt gives it the extra kick. However, once the pretzels cooled they were rubbery and soft. So if you plan on eating these right away, I would recommend them. If not, maybe half the recipe because you'll end up throwing them away otherwise.

Nutty Crispy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
For a simple sugar cookie recipe, this did the trick. However, for my tastes, I wanted a little more so I made the "Cinnamon Bun Icing" recipe from this site and spread it on top of the cooled sugar cookies. Then I chopped up one hersheys milk chocolate bar in my processer and sprinkled a generous portion on top of the icing. My husband who doesnt even like cheesecake (which is what the icing tastes like) gobbled them up. When I brought these to a baby shower, everyone raved! By adding these tips, these cookies were fabulous.

Whipped Cream Mousse Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2014
I'm a fan of reviewing recipes as exactly stated, so I will say that this is an amazing and easy "frosting." I get so tired of making buttercreams because of the overload of sugar and its density. Today was my second time making this and I added orange extract (could also squeeze an orange and grate the peel in too) and it gave it an extra hint of flavor. Yummy!!

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
YUMM-O! When I first looked at this recipe, it didn't look like anything special. But, wow it's so delicious! The only things I did differently were add garlic to the onion, and I did half creamed corn (which I've never bought in my life!) Don't tell anyone there are green chiles in this , and they'll be none the wiser, but they'll be asking you what that special kick is !

New York Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I HIGHLY recommend making this about 2-3 days before you plan on serving it. I made it the day before my halloween party, and it was just ok. It didnt have that "bite" i was craving. But, boy, 2 days later, its fabulous!!! And even though graham cracker crust would have been yummy, the shortbread gives it a great texture. I did add about 1/4 cup of sour cream, and lessened the cream by just a little. and i added a few squirts of lemon juice. excellent!!!

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2006
I keep coming back to this recipe for some reason, even though it's not what you think a scone would taste like. I did have to add a few more tablespoons of butter and alot more OJ. The batter is way too sticky to roll out, so I like to just roll the batter into a ball and cook it more like a cookie. They come out yummy and plump. Also, I like to half the batter before adding the chocolate chips and either do raisins and cinnamon or blueberry. Of course I always have to make some with chocolate chips ! Overall, the batter is difficult but the taste makes up for the trouble.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
Obviously I must have done something wrong because these did not turn out. The batter was actually dry.. no moisture at all. I grated the zucchini on the second smallest size (the one you hold).. I can't imagine that because the zucchini shreds weren't small enough that the brownie came out this bad. IT didn't rise (yes my b.soda is good) and it's all lumpy and grainy??? I don't understand.. I'm not a beginner baker either.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Oh.my.goodness. If you are a coconut lover, this is absolute heaven. I only did two small things different. 1) I added half teaspoon of coconut extract, half teaspoon vanilla. 2) I shaved some frozen chocolate on the top. Even without these additions, this pie would have still been great. Oh, and by the way, if it's possible-this is even better the next day. YUMMO !

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
The flavor was spot on for this pie. However, mine didn't turn out right. I had never made a meringue before, so for me the instructions were not detailed enough. I wasn't sure how long to boil the filling for. But, in the end, the pie was runny and soggy. So, I'm not sure if i cooked it too long or not long enough ? Also, I used a hand mixer for the egg whites, and I seriously beat it for at least twenty minutes. I'm going to have to throw it out. Too bad bc I can tell it's a tasty pie.

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008

Banana Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
I am only reviewing the icing because i used this to go with banana bread cookies also on this site. I find that there is way too much salt in the icing. I'm not sure i've ever used salt in a icing/frosting before. It was overwhelming. It was also a bit too sweet, and trust me- i like sweet, but this was a little too much!

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2007
I feel bad to say that I am not a big fan of this recipe. It had to be cooked way longer (5 plus extra minutes) for the cheesecake to not be soupy, which made the bottom too done. Worst of all, these did not taste cheesecakey enough! if you do decide to make this recipe, you definately need to bring the cream cheese to room temperature. Maybe mini cheesecakes are supposed to take on a different taste compared to a yummy new york cheesecake, which is what i was hoping for. sorry!
