Cheesy Onion Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
I make all kinds of homemade breads. Probably three times a week I make some sort of bread from scratch. My husband said that these biscuits were his absolute favorite! I doubled the recipe and I added a little extra cheese, about 3/4 cup, and threw in a few shakes of parmesean cheese as well. I didn't have any buttermilk on hand, so I substituted regular milk with 1 1/8 tsp cream of tartar, which I let sit for about 10 minutes. I also sauteed the onions in a small frying pan with a Tbsp of butter until they were translucent. The results were phenomenal!!!! The biscuits were super moist and had the most amazing flavor, just the right mix of cheese and onion! This is going in with my favorites for sure!!!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
I'm giving these a 5 star because I can see the potential. I think if I would have had a mandoline and used parchment paper they would have been a definitely three star. Instead, I cut them by hand and used a cheese slicer and I just didn't get them thin enough. And they took FOREVER to cook, even though some were paper thin I think they cooked for at least 10 minutes. My dh burned the heck out of his hand because the plate was so hot after the second batch. But they were really good, and if I ever buy a mandoline, I'll make them again for sure.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
These were the most delicious cookies I've made in a long time! I didn't have butter flavored shortening, so I just used regular shortening and they turned out awesome! Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. I added a few extra raisins because I love it that way. I also didn't have any cloves, so I substituted pumpkin pie spice. My whole family loved these cookies.

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
I've been making these cookies for several years. The only thing I do differently is use 1/2 chocolate chips and 1/2 butterscotch chips...yum!

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
These are great, I've always loved sweet potato fries. For those looking for something with the same texture and crunchiness as a regular french fry...well, you will not find it here. Sweet potato fries are softer, and thus don't crunch up like regular potatoes. Keep that in mind when making these and you won't be disappointed. They are really, really good!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
I started making this recipe and when I went to grab the butter, I realized that all I had was SmartBalance buttery spread. I was nervous about how they would turn out, but they were actually perfectly delicious. I didn't roll them out, but just dropped spoonfuls onto my pizza stone. My husband ate at least 5 of them by the end of the night!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Oh yeah!!! Quite possibly the best cookie ever! I shorted the sugar just a bit and added some raisins and chocolate chips, other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. The one thing I will do differently next time is to use unsalted butter. Or if I do use salted butter, I'll omit adding the extra salt because I can taste a tad more salt than I would like to be tasting...but I know it's my fault for using salted butter so I still give these cookies a 5 star because they are just awesome! They came out all fluffy and soft and chewy, I've never been able to get my cookies to turn out this way, so I'm totally excited about this recipe, it's definitely going in with my all time favorites! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
These were awesome. I made them big and they needed about 12 minutes to cook. I followed the recipe exactly except substitued not quite a 1/2 cup brown sugar and not quite a full cup regular sugar, that way it wasn't quite as sweet. They are sooooooo good. I couldn't stop eating the batter as I was spooning it onto the cookie sheet!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
This is my favorite pizza dough recipe. I actually just throw it all together in my bread machine on the dough cycle and let it do the kneading and rising in there. I use Olive oil instead of Vegetable oil, but other than that, I do everything else exactly as is.

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.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
I made these for Thanksgiving and everyone was so impressed. I used 3 cups bread flour and 1 cup whole wheat and they were absolutely perfect. I didn't cook them right away after putting them into the pan as we still had a couple of hours until the turkey was ready. So they sat in the pan and rose for a couple of hours before I popped them in the oven at the last minute and everyone received piping hot rolls with their dinner!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
I've been craving a good peanut butter oatmeal cookie for the past couple of weeks. These are fantastic. It really hit the spot. I followed other's advice and used a little less sugar and a few more oats. I used regular oats and they seem to have turned out fine. They are still cooling right now, but I've eaten enough of the batter to know they are going to be perfect!

Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
My absolute favorite waffle recipe!!!!!! It is time consuming and messy, but soooooooo worth it. I think I'll try and make the batter the night before next time because it's so hard to wait that hour for the batter to rise...I get so impatient and hungry by the time I finally get to eat one!!!

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
These tacos were exceptional! My husband had no idea what I was making for dinner and he came in while it was simmering and commented that it smelled absolutely delicious. They tasted even better than they smelled. He couldn't believe there wasn't any meat in it. My 2 and 3 1/2 year old daughters gobbled them up as well. We actually served them on the fry bread from the fry bread taco's recipe that someone else mentioned in their review. I mixed the lentil mixture with a homemade salsa made with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, garlic salt and chili powder pureed in my blender. Scooped some on the fry bread, topped with a little cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, avocado and a touch more salsa. My husband said this is one of his all time favorites. Next time I make it, I think I'll save some calories by skipping the fry bread, as delicious as it was, and heaping mine on top of a bed of lettuce for a rocking taco salad. I'm sure these lentil taco's will become a regular meal in our house. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

Strawberry Dream Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
Absolutely fantastic!!!!! I followed some of the suggestions on here and used strawberry cream cheese in the cake, I also substituted a Vanilla Cake mix for the white cake, which called for three eggs, so I used two whole eggs and two egg whites. The frosting was awesome. I was a little concerned with it being too runny especially after reading all the reviews...I added a couple tablespoons of powdered sugar and a couple teaspoons of flour. I wish I wouldn't have added the extra sugar, because it made it a pinch sweeter than I would have liked it, but that still didn't stop me from licking the spoon like crazy! I put the frosting in the fridge for a couple of hours, and even stuck it in the freezer for about 20 mins because I was nervous about it, but it ended up being absolutely perfect. It made a ton of frosting and I put a thick layer of frosting in between my cake layers along with a nice layer of fresh strawberries. I think I could have skipped the extra sugar and flour in the frosting and it would have thickened up fine in the fridge after a couple of hours. I also put a couple of drops of red food coloring in the cake batter, because some of the review said the cake turned a strange grey color, and this was for my 4 year old daughters princess party so I wanted to make sure it was nice and pink. It turned out gorgeous. There were tiny lumps of white chocolate in the frosting that no one else noticed by me. Other than that it was perfect and I will most lik
