The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Fantastic! Yum! My 12 year old son declared these lemon bars his favorite dessert. I've never made lemon bars before, never really thought to, but I had extra lemons so I tried this recipe, a new favorite I will go back to again and again. I too added about 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice and added a little extra flour to compensate.

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
Excellent idea! I had bought fresh peaches and wanted to use them up and was looking for something like this. I made a few modifications. Obviously, used fresh peaches, I added a handful of fresh strawberries, I used a pastry blender/cutter and mixed a few spoonfuls of brown sugar and cold butter. I don't mind spending the few extra minutes to use the pastry blender...to me it made it a perfectly crusted top and perfectly moist below! Delicious!

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2012
I did the recipe exactly how it is listed and didn't listen to the other reviews...mistake. WAY too much butter. I should have listened! I would cut the butter in half at least. As it was, there was a lot of butter sitting in the pan after scooping the oatmeal out. Will try again with modifications though.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
Very simple recipe, I love it! I made sure the cream cheese, butter and eggs were at room temperature. Mixed them well. I didn't have cake flour so I found a recipe for cake flour substitute, it involved a lot of sifting. I have no idea if it was worth it. I baked for 1hr10min but will try a tad less next time. The outside was golden brown and was probably the best part of the cake! But I felt the inside was just a tad too overdone. I will make this recipe again, but will try it with actual cake flour and will decrease the sugar by half a cup. I will still try another version after that until it's perfect to my taste. GREAT BASE RECIPE THOUGH!!!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I thought this was not a good flavor. Is there such a thing as bad confectioners sugar? It wasn't an old package but the taste was pretty awful. That and there is no way 2 tsps of milk was enough. Had to double to 4 to get any kind of liquid going. I'll give it two stars only because it did get hard but still looked wet. I added little designs to my chocolate covered sugar cookies. This alone on the cookie would not have been good.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
Oh. My. Gosh. Love this recipe. I just wanted to make a dessert and didn't want to do cookies again. Found this recipe...it is a KEEPER! My new go-to for sweets. I followed other advice #1, chill to "dough" after mixing. #2, I mixed it up a little and added half regular Oreos and half Golden Oreos. #3 I melted the chocolate in a glass bowl over simmering water. It worked great at keeping the chocolate melted while dipping the balls. #4 I used a serving size spoon with holes to put the ball on, used a regular spoon to scoop the melted chocolate over it, then used a fork to move the ball to the wax paper. A little messy, but that's totally okay with me. It's a hit with everyone who's tried it so far!

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
The taste is phenomenal but I only baked them for 7 minutes at 350, could be my oven is a little hot though. I wasn't thrilled how flat they turned out but the taste sure made up for that. They started out very crispy but I read somewhere that if you put a slice of fresh bread in the airtight container with the cookies, they stay moist...it worked so well! I changed the slice of bread daily (it's been three days) and they are still nice and soft. I'm big on soft cookies but if it weren't for the bread, I think they'd be more crispy/chewy like some people would prefer.

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
Mmmmm! Picked blackberries from a local farm and was clueless what to do with them. Glad I found this recipe. I read a lot of other suggestions and this is what I did: (1) doubled dough mixture but stuck to only 1/2 cup sugar. (2) Only added 1/2 cup sugar to berry mixture as my berries were very ripe (3) Didn't have iron skillet, boiled berry mixture in saucepan, poured in a 9X12 baking dish then plopped the dough mixture on top by teaspoon full. I really like this recipe because you can't go wrong with it! I'm anxious to try different fruits. Excellent!

Hard Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Yum! I actually like this much better than the glazes with corn syrup. I used 10oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips since that's what I had. I used half of this for Chocolate Zuchinni Cake III and put the rest in the fridge for my next cake. I hope it warms up okay?! I put the cake in the fridge as soon as I was done glazing and it now has a firm yet soft texture. LOVE IT! I don't have a double broiler so I used a pyrex bowl over simmering water in a pan. Make sure the water doesn't touch the bowl. Anyway, great little trick for a double broiler substitute I see others have done too.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
I used to eat this when I was a kid and had completely forgotten about this gem. This recipe really brought me back. Excellent mother's day treat that will now be an annual tradition that perhaps will be passed on to my kids. So glad I found it!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
It was a great flavor but almost a little too rich/salty for my taste. I will definetly try again with a little less onion soup. The way the soup/moisture ended up on top of the mealoaf after cooking was fantastic.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
My family raved about this dish. The egg noodles add crust-like flavor. I added more cheese than it calls for and used not only mozzarella but cheddar as well. I also added olives and mushrooms. That's what's so great about this recipe, you can add nearly whatever you would put on a pizza...to your liking! Fantastic recipe submission Melissa!

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
Excellent! I like to shake things up with cookies a bit. I made it with semi sweet/white choco morsels. And because I love peanuty butter I added about 2tbsp of peanut butter (and added a tiny bit more flour to balance). I also used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla. Love them! They are just a bit crispy on the edges and gooey on the insides perhaps because of my modifications.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Exceptional, tasty dish! I don't think I've ever made regular rice so this was a long shot for me. But the recipe is so easy it's nearly fail proof. I've read some reviews saying it's a lot of work, I think saying "it's a lot of time" would be more accurate. I was stirring for more like 30 minutes and I only used 8oz of each mushroom as opposed to 1lb each. I made in a large non-stick skillet instead of sauce pan but it still came out fine. Will make again and again!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Yum! I've made this twice now, the first time it didn't come out quite right. The second time I did things a little different from the recipe and per other suggestions: 1) Let the raisins soak for about 10 minutes in water. This made them so moist to bite into. 2) After using my mixer for wet ingredients I hand mixed in dry ingredients, oats, and raisins. I keep reading over and over that over mixing some cookies and cakes makes them tough/hard. 3) I also added about an extra 1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. Just a personal preference. 4) I use the small cookie scooper and pack it in there, when it wasn't, the butter melted too quickly and they became thin and crumbly. A cookie scooper is a must for just about all cookies in my book! Makes for a uniform and evenly baked batch. 5) I baked for only 8 minutes. The cookies came out perfect when the edges started to brown but the center looked gooey, almost raw. This is now my go to oatmeal raisin recipe!
