Chocolate Cobbler

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
I have made variations of this dessert before in the past,and this is by FAR the best recipe I have ever tried!! I added about 2 heaping Tablespoons cocoa(instead of 1.5 TBS) and that gave it a little extra chocolate flavor.. I wouldnt change anything else about this recipe though. It is definately a keeper and I will be throwing out all the other knock offs of this recipe!

Juicy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This is the BEST marinade that I have ever tried for pork chops, and I am VERY picky!! I have made this numerous times now, and my family LOVES it when I make this. These are soooo good under the broiler, its the next best thing to grilling them outside. I added fresh chopped garlic, which I personally prefer over minced jarred garlic. If you are using thin chops, you may not want to marinate them quite as long as suggested in the recipe or they will be a little salty. Great recipe and so simple!

Amusement Park Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
My picky daughter loves this cornbread. It does remind me of the Jiffy Corn Muffin mix, but better since its homemade. Very sweet and fluffy.. It is more of a cake than a muffin, but I will be making it again.

Lemon Barbeque Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
I think this recipe has great potential.. While I am not a big fan of "baked" pork chop recipes, I think this one is excellent under the broiler. I just personally think that broiling is more flavorful than baking. The lemon juice accents the barbecue sauce with just enough "zing" and adds great flavor. I highly recommend people to try this, but with broiling 4-5 mins on each side instead of baking it in the sauce.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
These were outstanding!! I dont usually review a recipe unless it makes a big impression on me. My husband and toddler loved these and kept asking for more! I didn't change a thing with the recipe. This is definately a keeper!! Thanks Andrea!

BBQ Glazed Homemade Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
This is an excellent recipe for meatballs!! The sauce is superb and compliments the meatballs wonderfully. I would recommend using ground sirloin or a leaner meat though, as the fat/grease in the ground beef can overwhelm the sauce somewhat. It is definately going to be a frequently used recipe in my house though!

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
This has got to be the best snickerdoodle recipe ever!!! I agree with some of the others, that you MUST use the shortening as the recipe states and not substitute for butter if you want these to be real snickerdoodles. The butter makes them turn out flatter, and more golden and crispy.. these cookies are meant to be soft, chewy and moist. A real crowd pleaser!! So glad I tried this recipe!!

Rainbow Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
I tried my first rainbow cookie from a coworker recently, and immediately fell in love with it. Since she got them from a bakery in NY,and I live no where near there, I searched and found this recipe. The recipe was not all that complicated, the worst part was separating the dough into 3 parts and spreading it in the pans. I will add that it is VERY important to beat the egg whites and fold them into the batter, another reviewer stated that they opted not to do this part and that it is not necessary, but this step adds a much needed texture for these cookies!!! Something I would change would be to add more Almond Extract to the dough. I added about a teaspoon as one reviewer stated, but I think next time I will up it to one and a half or maybe even two. I used seedless raspberry preserves, and maybe I used too much, but it overwhelmed the almond cookie flavor, so I dont know if using jam instead of preserves would be less intense or not? My husband said they tasted like tiny jelly sandwiches and couldnt taste the "cookie" part which disappointed me because I thought these would be a hit. I added shortening to the melted chocolate and had no problem with it cracking when sliced. I am giving this recipe 4 stars, in the hopes that my next batch will turn out much better!!

Jif® Peanut Butter Blossoms

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
Good flavor, although light on the peanut butter taste, but I prefer mine to be more soft and chewy, these turned out too crisp even when I shortened the cooking time. Maybe it was the butter flavored crisco? Next time if I make this recipe again, I would try plain crisco.

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
This muffin recipe is a winner in my book. They taste out of this world!! I actually grated the apples instead of chopping them up. And I added rolled oats to the streusel topping instead of flour. To those who said there was too much butter in the topping, I dont think you are mixing it up quite enough. You have to cut the butter in really good. I plan on making these again soon, but using whole wheat flour and 1/2 applesauce instead of oil like other reviewers stated. Great recipe!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
If you are contemplating trying these, I have four words for you.. you MUST try them!! They are unbelievable!! These will be the first appetizers to go at any get together you have. A few of my guests were a bit hesitant of these while i was making them, they saw the raw bacon and weenies and sugar, but once they came out of the oven, they were gone within twenty minutes if even that long and we only had about 6 people there!! My husband told me these were to be added to the "must have to eat list" at our next party. I would definately give this more than 5 stars if I could, and will most definately make them again and again!!

Whoopie Pies VIII

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
I was having a sweet tooth craving, and these definately did the trick!! I dont think I could recommend a better Whoopie Pie recipe for the cookie/cake part!! I did use a different recipe for the filling because I tend to like the cooked filling versions better. These turned out so moist and perfect!! I did not have any buttermilk on hand, so I added a Tablespoon fresh lemon juice to the cup of sweet milk and that worked out fine. They have such a delicate flavor, not overpowering and not bland either. I will be using this recipe again and often!!

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
This is an excellent meatloaf recipe. Up until finding this one, i used an old standby recipe that was handed down to me from my mom. I only tried this because of all the rave reviews it got, and it definately is a keeper!! My husband liked this one better than my old recipe. I did make a few changes only because I did not have a few ingredients on hand... Instead of chopped onion and the bouillon granules, i used a packet of Lipton Onion soup, which I think added great flavor. I also used a cup of italian breadcrumbs instead of the cut up bread slices, but next time i will substitute oatmeal becuase i like the texture oatmeal gives meatloaf over the breadcrumbs. The sauce is rather sweet, but that is just the way we like it at our house!! Thanks for a great recipe! Two thumbs up!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
This tea really does taste like or as good as the McD's sweet tea!!! I would never have thought to put a pinch of baking soda in to counteract the bitterness. I am so glad I found this recipe. Thanks!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
This is an unbelievably moist, delicious chocolate cake. Very decadent! I highly recommend this to anyone considering making it. I used it for my daughters birthday cake, and got rave reviews from all my guests!! I topped it with "Special Buttercream Frosting" also taken from this site, and it was out of this world. I do have to say I was a bit nervous about the recipe after mixing it up and pouring into the pans, the batter was very thin and I thought no way it was going to bake up right but it did, and I used two 8" cake pans, and was concerned about overbaking, but I only had to add about 5 mins on to the total time and they came out perfect!! I will definately use this as my Chocolate Cake recipe from here on out!!!

Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
This makes an excellent tasting cookie! I followed another reviewers advice, and added lemon instead of vanilla and a hint of nutmeg, and the end result is sooo delicious!! While the taste of these cookies excelled my expectations, the consistency is not up to par for cut outs I am sad to report. They were no problem to roll out, it was the cookie was too delicate after being baked to be frosted. However, this recipe does not state it is suitable for cut outs so I am not going to count off for that, I was merely following the advice of other reviewers who have appeared to have luck with it. I will make these again but stick with rolling them in the ball and flattening with a glass as directions state vs. cut out shapes. Again, the flavor is outstanding!!

Buche de Noel

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I am very happy I chose this recipe. I admit I was a bit skeptical about the no flour in this recipe and almost opted not to make it but I love the texture and how it turned out. I was scared after unrolling the "cake" part, it looked horrible, but after I put in the filling and re-rolled it, it did look just like a log!! I opted to ice the outside with the chocolate whip cream filling from this recipe and used another recipe found here: Yule-Log for the filling inside. I am so glad I did! Turned out wonderfully festive and everyone loved it.. I will start making this every year now. I look forward to finding little trinkets throughout the year to add to the log. I couldnt find any this year so all I added was a sprig of holly and a few maraschino cherries for the berries. Cant wait to make this again!

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
This could possibly be the best egg salad I've ever eaten! I normally only make my egg salad the boring way with just mayo and sugar/vinegar , but I wanted to try something with a little more "oomph" and this was definately it!! I omitted the regular mustard and substituted red onions for the green onions, and added a little pinch of sugar for sweetness. Instead of chopping up the eggs and stirring into the mayo/mustard mix, I used a potato masher to mix it all up together at once, which gives the salad a very creamy consistency.. I will be using this as my go to recipe for egg salad from now on. Thanks Jen!

Grandma's Sweet Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Very good coleslaw, just the way we like it. I wouldn't recommend adding or taking away a thing! Dont fuss it up, this is one of those recipes where simpler is better. If you are looking for a non sweet slaw, this one is NOT for you!

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
These were very good.. A little too thin for my liking, but overall a very yummy pancake!! I had to recalculate the recipe for 5 servings, so I dont know if that is the reason that they were thin, maybe it needs to be made in the amount listed. I also did not have buttermilk on hand, so I used 2 TBSP lemon juice to make a substitution. My husband liked these and he is pretty picky about his pancakes, so I will defintately make these again!! Thanks!
