Blueberry Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
Made recipe as written. No need to change anything as other reviewers have mentioned. I baked the cake for 60 minutes in a tube pan and it came out perfect. Also tastes good with strawberries in lieu of blueberries. Will be using again.

Juicy Peach Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Yummy! I left out the almond extract as I didn't want to detract from the peach flavoring. I used 1/2 c. flour and 1/2 c. oats as suggested by others. The taste probably isn't any different if one uses the full cup of flour and leaves out the oats. I didn't make any other changes. Oven temperature and baking time were spot on for me. My sweet tooth did not find this too sweet with the full cup of sugar. My search for a tasty peach crisp recipe stops with this one. Will definitely make again. Thanks!

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This is a nice alternative to Buffalo-style wings. I used the stated ingredients without making changes. I placed wings and marinade in a gallon size Ziploc bag and marinated several hours. I placed a sheet of non-stick tin foil in the baking dish prior to adding wings. I boiled the marinade and basted wings periodically while baking, turning wings once. Served with blue cheese and ranch dressings. Yum.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
Yes, these cookies are flat. It's the nature of the recipe. If you don't want flat cookies, don't make these. Personally, I don't care what a cookie looks like. I find it more important that it tastes good. If you want a delicious cookie regardless of whether or not it's flat; try these. I followed the recipe exactly using Andes mints. They were chewy and yummy not crispy at all like some reviewers' results. Everyone in the house enjoyed them. I'll be adding them to my Christmas staples. Thanks a bunch!

Grandma Snyder's Oatmeal Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Outstanding cake that came out beautifully. I used old fashioned oats, which I think makes a difference. I used pecans instead of walnuts, and may cut back (1/2 - 1 cup) on them next time I make this (there WILL be a next time). Thanks!

Cindy's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Loved this recipe. I used Andouille sausage. One could probably add another cup of rice to make this less "liquidy." Adjust the Cajun seasoning to your personal taste.

White Chocolate Snack Mix

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Love this recipe. My family calls it Reindeer Chow. It's a great holiday snack to have around the house or to bring to school/office parties as it makes a massive amount. It's easy to half if you're feeding a smaller crowd. Thanks!

Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Flavors that one wouldn't ordinarily couple together make for a pleasant dish. Didn't change a thing and will be making again.

Cinnamon Snack Mix

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
I think this recipe would have still received 5-stars from me even if I hadn't tinkered with it. However, I did make changes since it was for a school party. Like others, I substituted cheerios for the ramen noodles. I substituted 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows (added AFTER baking) for the almonds. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. I too thought that since it was in the name it should be in the recipe. Since others were reporting that it was getting too brown in the oven, I turned my oven temperature WAY down to 250 degrees. I left the mix in for 45 minutes, stirring at 15 min. intervals, until most of the moisture had been absorbed so it wouldn't come out soggy. It was a hit with the kids. I will definitely be using this again. Thanks!

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
The only change I made to this recipe was adding 1/2 c. chocolate chips to the batter before baking. I mixed the batter in a bowl and greased/floured two 9" pans prior to pouring the batter in. I think they baked for about 20 minutes. Make sure you heavily grease and flour the pans as the cake is stubborn coming out. I agree that it tastes better the next day. Thanks!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
Forget the double boiler. Put the chocolate/shortening in the microwave. Zap it for 30 seconds. Stir. Zap it for 30 more seconds. Done. Dip your berries. This recipe covered 30 healthy-sized berries for me. Enjoy! A good rule of thumb to remember is 1 Tablespoon of shortening for every 1 Cup of chocolate chips. I used semi-sweet chips. I decorated the berries with 1/3 Cup melted white chips. I put the melted chips in a ziploc bag, poked a hole in one of the corners and squeezed the chocolate onto the berries. Mmmmm!

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
I switched out the choc. syrup for hot fudge. I mixed the hot fudge with the peanut butter without needing to heat anything. That way I didn't have to wait for any cooling before assembling the dessert. My pan had enough room for 24 ice cream sandwiches. DEFINITELY spread the chocolate mixture on before the Cool Whip. I added some caramel on top of the Cool Whip which made for a nice presentation. Since this was being served to a party with kids, I feared they wouldn't eat it with nuts. So, I used 8 crumbled Reese's cups in place of the peanuts. Next time I'll use more Reese's cups because everyone wanted a piece of the dessert with lots of the cups on it. When beginning the second layer, make sure you push down on the ice cream sandwiches to eliminate any air pockets in the dessert and to give yourself more room in the pan. I used a 9x13 cake pan, which is deeper than my 9x13 Pyrex dish, and the dessert filled it to the top. This is a super easy recipe. It's easy enough for beginning cooks and kids to make. The options for different tastes are plentiful. Well done!

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
I used my large mixer with a wire beater instead of my tiny processor. This recipe makes a large amount that my processor cannot accomodate. Came out wonderfully. Next time I'll double the amount of tomatoes and nuts and increase the pesto to 1 c. since there is so much cheese mixture. Let it come to room temperature before eating, otherwise it will be crumbly. This is a wonderful recipe for entertaining.

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
For taste, I would give this recipe 4-stars. However, the ease and time involved in making the recipe bumps it up to 5-stars. I replaced the ground beef with italian sausage. I also replaced the onion, pepper, tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar and oregano with a jar of Ragu. This is a recipe that will be used in our house on busy school nights.

Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
Yummy! The only substitution I used was honey in place of molasses. I prepared these for grilled burgers. I agree that some of the onion flavor is lost with the other ingredients added. It's not bad, just different. I won't use this on burgers again because I like the onion flavor to dominate in caramelized onions. I will, however, add this to baked beans in the future. Thanks!
