Allie's Awesome Easy Spice Cake

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
Perfect cake and yes it gets better and better the longer you have it. Had a week old piece today and it was better then the first day it was made. Served it with fresh whipped cream and powdered sugar. Followed the recipe as written and there is no need to change a thing.

Tuna Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2014
Have made this Tuna Ball many many times and it's always a hit. I tried it because someone in an earlier review said that even those who dislike tuna could not resist it. They were correct. The only change I made was to add 1 teaspoon of Liquid Smoke and salt to taste. Salt really enhances the flavors of the other ingredients. I like to make it a day earlier than I am serving it although it's hard to resist when I first make it.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Great recipe ! It was a bit on the dry side, I did not want to fight the dough so I simply added an extra egg and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Did not need to do anything else. I also pushed M & M's onto the cookies right after they came out of the oven. By waiting until they are finished baking the dye from the candy will not smear on the cookie.It also keeps the candy from bursting in the oven while baking. This is only necessary if you want a visually pretty cookie

Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2013
I only had ground beef so that's what I used. These were awesome. I can only imagine how much better they would be made with half pork. No need to ever look for another meatball recipe again.

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
Loved these scones. So simple to make and no off beat ingredients. Did use 6TBSP of O.J. instead of three and 8 TBSP of butter instead of five. Still looked a little dry but did hold together and were not dry in the end.

Seven Minute Frosting I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
As other reviewers suggested I to use 1/4 cup of syrup. I think this was why it was not very good. With this much added sweetness it made the frosting way way to sickly sweet and wet. I will make this again and follow the recipe as directed except will add 1/2 tsp of Cream of Tartar. I ruined the taste by adding that extra corn syrup.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
As said before and before and before in other reviews....way too much salt. Cut salt by half at the least. Try to make dressing beforehand as to give the dry spices a chance to release their flavor. other than that, this recipe is totally a keeper.

Pastel de Tres Leches (Three Milk Cake)

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
Oh man, this was soooooo good ! Everyone loved it at our home group. Can't wait to serve it to a new group of people to see if they have the same response. Topped each piece with whipped cream, toasted coconut and diced strawberries.

Tried 'n' True Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
Finally a darn good Peanut Butter Cookie. I've made dozens of PB Cookie recipes and never came across what I was looking for in taste and texture. I especially like the tenderness of this cookie. I rolled them in sugar prior to flattening with a fork. These remind me of the kind I used to eat from my childhood. It's just a good old fashioned Peanut Butter Cookie.

Decadent Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Today I won a first place cream pie ribbon and a best pie of show trophy, making this pie. I made two pies, one with expensive cream cheese and one with a brand x cheese. To my surprise the better pie was the one with off brand cheese. It held up firmer as it fell to room temp. Don't actually know why but I will use the off brand from now on with this recipe.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Great recipe !!! I normally make the Hershey Chocolate Cake recipe ( which is a close second to this ) but the addition of coffee to enhance the chocolate taste and buttermilk for moistness is just the ticket for a great chocolate cake. This is different from the Hershey recipe and well worth a try.

Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
Really like this recipe. Did add 1/4 red wine, 1 bay leaf and 2 teaspoons of sugar to counter the acidity. This is a very good base and will work well with everyone personal tastes. Do try this recipe and do be creative.

Trishie's Chinese-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
I don't know, I thought something was missing. I added 2 teaspoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of sesame seed oil and that seemed to do the trick. I like my changes so I make this again, all the ingredients are staples so it's a great go to dressing.

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
TURNED OUT PERFECT FOR A 4LB PLUS CORNED BEEF. IF SMALLER PIECE OF MEAT IS USED YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER COOKING AT LOW. FLAVOR WAS FANTASTIC.

Mint Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Wonderful recipe. Followed recipe as written. Froze the cake before icing, when mixing the green icing I too thought it was too thick and was glad i froze the cake. When I looked at the recipe a second time I realized I added 1/2 a stick of butter instead if 1/2 a cup ( big difference ). After I added the other 1/2 of the stick (to measure 1/2 cup total, as recipe calls for) the icing was perfect and easy to spread. There was no need to freeze the cake to ice it if you be sure to use a whole stick of butter. If you freeze the cake before you ice it then while you are in the process of icing it you will have to be FAST as the icing will firm up that much faster and could be hard to spread smoothly.

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
If you never try this recipe you will never know what you have missed out on. I have made it three times now and followed the recipe to a tee and it came out soooo tasty. One time I made some mistakes as to when to add what ingredient so it only came out so-so. Just follow the directions as written and you will not be disappointed.
