Best Butternut Squash Soup Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
The only change I made to this recipe was to oven roast a whole squash instead of a half. I cut it in half, and cooked it at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes with a tablespoon of butter in the middle and seasoned with salt and pepper. I left everything else the same. This was honestly the best butternut squash soup I have ever tasted!!!! And I was so happy that it didn't have any cream or potatoes in it. Thank you for this recipe, my entire family loved it! Three generations of us :)

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
I forgot to add the extra 1/2 c milk like so many reviewers suggested. I regret that, as the cake is very dense and a bit crumbly without it. I loved the flavor and it was definitely at hit at the party. I just feel like a little extra moisture would have made it out of this world. I did whip the eggs as the final step and folded them into the batter as opposed to beating them in.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
This is a really good recipe for Irish soda bread. I have another one that I have been using for years that calls for more sugar than this one. I think I'll up the sugar in this one to 1/2 cup next time, just to give it a little more sweetness.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
5 stars for this! I added a few Tablespoons of worchestershire and some garlic salt because I felt the end product lacked a little flavor and with these changes it was perfect! Served it up on some dutch crunch rolls with mayo and provolone cheese! Delicious dinner! Thanks for the recipe!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I thought I already had the best ever pancake recipe...but I was wrong! This recipe is even better! The only change I make is using apple cider vinegar in place of the white, it gives them a great flavor! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

Broccoli Casserole III

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
This is a family favorite for as long as I can remember. We make this for every thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. We use a 9x13 inch pan, 3 packages of chopped broccoli, a little over half the big block of Velveeta cheese. I then melt 1/2 cup butter and mix with 2 sleeves of crushed Ritz crackers until moist. I drizzle any leftover butter over the cheese/broccoli mixture before putting the crackers on top.

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
Served this tonight at our Thanksgiving dinner. I made a huge 9x13 inch pan of it and it was completely gone before the night was over. I guess you could say that was a success!!

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I left the rosemary out because I was planning on having these under the 'Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce' recipe from this site. I figured the rosemary would change the flavor of the dish. It was delicious! I can't wait to try it with the rosemary another time!!

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I followed the advice of Alexsmomi and put the 2 halves into the microwave for 5 minutes first. Then added the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and baked for 20 mins at 350. It turned out so good!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
I made these cookies tonight because I was in the mood to bake cookies and didn't have chocolate chips or oatmeal in the house to make my usual cookies. I am so glad I stumbled upon this recipe!!!! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used butter instead of margarine. These are my new favorite cookie! I made 2 dozen and I swear 4 of us ate 15 cookies already and it's only been a couple of hours since I took them out of the oven! They have the PERFECT texture, soft and chewy on the inside with a nice crisp edge. The flavor is phenomenal! I might even add a little extra spice next time to really spice it up. My dough was sticky and I was a little concerned about it at first, but they turned out beautiful! I didn't quite roll them into balls because of the stickiness, but that didn't seem to matter. They do spread a lot so make sure you leave plenty of room between each cookie. I'm putting this recipe in my book of all time favorites that I'm putting together for when my children are grown.

Banana Frittata

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
I was really impressed with how good this tasted. The eggs gave it a great texture, it was a refreshing change from our regular sunday morning pancakes. I used 2 large bananas, and at first I was worried that it was too much, but I dumped them all in anyway and it was so good! I didn't put anything on top of it, it was so sweet as it was. My girls loved it, too! I didn't even tell them there wasn't syrup on it, they never noticed! This is going in my family favorites recipe book! Thanks so much for this recipe! The only change I made was to omit the oil. I just used about 1T butter in the pan and it was perfect. This made 3 servings for me.

No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
I'm giving these 4 stars. I think the recipe as written is 3 stars, but with a little tweaking it tastes like 5 stars. When I made this recipe as written I found it to be incredibly sweet and a lacking some flavor. So I upped the cocoa to 3T, cut the sugar back to about 1 1/2 cups and threw in a pinch of salt. That made it worth 5 stars!!!!

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
These were a huge hit with everyone in the family. My 3 and 5 year old ate everything on their plate. My parents loved them, too. It's going down as one of my favorite meals. I know I'll make this many more times, it was that good. The only changes I made were to use taco seasoning instead of chili powder, and I probably used 1 1/2 tsp of it. I didn't have chopped green chiles, but I did have 7 oz can of whole green chiles, so I just chopped those up instead. I probably used more like 5-6oz of chiles. I had filling left over after putting 1/4 cup in each tortilla, so I ended up using 11 tortillas, which ended up fitting in my 9x13 better. I used a little extra cheese on top, because we love cheese in this house. And after I pulled it out of the over I sprinkled some fresh cilantro and green onion on the top while it cooled. Sooooooo amazing! Thanks so much for the recipe!

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
The flavor of this cake was superb!! I have made a few pineapple upside down cakes in the past, it's one of my daughters' favorites and she has requested it on several occasions. I tried this one for her birthday cake this evening and it was a huge hit. I won't look for another recipe, this is it. Hands down the best I've ever tried. I didn't change anything at all except I doubled the recipe, baked in a 9x13 glass dish at 375 for about 45 mins. It was perfect. Oh, and I added some marachino cherries for color, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly.

Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
I increased the flour and oats to 1 3/4 cup each, substituted brown sugar, used 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup applesauce, and used fresh strawberries instead of preserves. I cut up about 2 cups of strawberries and tossed them with a little bit of sugar. I used 1 cup of coconut and 1/4 cup of chopped, toasted walnuts in the topping.
