Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
Absolutely the best scone recipe I've ever made (or eaten). I love trying different add-ins each time. So far lemon/poppyseed is my favorite, but I also love them with dried cherries, blueberries, raisins, apricots (cut into small pieces), and fruit mixtures that I find at Trader Joe's. I find that I have better luck with dried fruit compared to fresh. I enjoy making them with my little granddaughter because she loves to help me cut them out. All my friends and neighbors are thrilled when I bring over a batch -- along with clotted cream, of course!!! I highly recommend trying this recipe. It really is the best ever!

Cheese Crackers

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2013
Just tried this recipe last night and am really pleased with the results. I substituted cayenne pepper (1/4 teaspoon) for the red pepper flakes and added chopped fresh rosemary for a little extra taste. They turned out to be very tasty. I can't wait to try it with different cheeses (Swiss or Gruyere) and maybe other herbs. Very versatile! I've been disappointed with the results of similar recipes but this one is a real keeper! Thanks for the recipe, Domestic Chef.

Best Ever Creamy Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2013
I really LOVE this soup. I omit the potatoes (to reduce carbs for a diabetic) and sauté broccoli and cauliflower along with the onions in olive oil and butter, then follow the other directions as listed. I use my immersion blender and blend all the vegetables once they are cooked. The soup is very creamy without lots of extra calories. Once the cheese is added, no salt or pepper are needed; the flavor is perfect. I've started calling this my "Virtuous Soup". Thanks for sharing the recipe, AMEHNEY.

#1 Pea Salad Most Requested!

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
I made a half recipe today and wish I had made the whole recipe. Took it to a friend's house as an extra side dish for lunch ad everyone, including me, really loved it! The smoked almonds really do give it a bacon-y taste. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Egg Drop Soup (Better than Restaurant Quality!)

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
This egg drop soup is absolutely great! I quadrupled the amounts for four servings. I really love the flavor of the sesame oil. It adds to the quality of the soup. Thanks so much for the recipe, Darren. I will make this again and again.

Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
I made this soup today and found it to be quite delicious! I had only two leeks but when combined with the cauliflower and sautéed, the scent was really good. When I finished the cooking and used my immersion blender and added the cream, it was just fabulous -- much better than I would have expected. I didn't add any salt or pepper because I thought it was perfect just like it was. I will definitely be making this one again and again! Thank you, DRUMNWRITE, for sharing this delicious recipe.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
LOVE this applesauce! I've tripled the recipe and I've made it with sugar blends, once with white sugar blend and once with brown sugar blend, and it is outstanding either way. I have to pace myself or I could easily eat it all. Thanks, Sarah, for this great recipe.

Crab Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
This quiche is delicious! I substituted FF evaporated milk and used real crabmeat. I also used Gruyere cheese and served it at a neighborhood brunch. It was a big hit and well worth the effort. Ladies asked to take home the leftovers so I know they really liked it.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
I made this for a neighborhood brunch and was very pleased with the results. The loaves were so moist, sweet, and tasty. I used a sugar blend and egg substitute and it was still wonderful! I added a 1/2 cup of golden raisins and they were a perfect addition. I highly recommend this recipe.

Microwave Pralines

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
Had to try this recipe because we all love pralines so much. I was amazed at how easy these are to make; I've made them the "hard way" using a candy thermometer in the past. These were so easy and so delicious I've made four batches in the last few days and given them to my friends for Christmas gifts. Everyone loves them! They're as good or better than any I've ever tasted. Thanks for such a great (and easy) recipe.

Five Ingredient Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 6, 2006
I can't believe how absolutely delicious this ice cream is!! I did substitute 1/2 and 1/2 for the heavy cream and the milk (I guess that makes it a 4 ingredient ice cream) like another reviewer suggested but it was still fabulous. I also used my small ice cream maker. I will make this again and again. I'm so happy to have this recipe. Thanks!

Apricot Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
Easy to make and tastes great. Like other reviewers, I used Catalina dressing instead of Russian because that's what I had on hand. I also seasoned with salt and pepper and browned pork chops before baking. They turned out very tender, moist, and tasty. Loved it.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
Oh, my, was this delicious! I made it in my slow cooker and it worked just great. I used one can of cream of chicken soup and one can of cream of celery soup (didn't have fresh celery on hand). I omitted the 3 cups of water and added one can of reduced fat/salt chicken broth instead. I also used one can of sliced carrots instead of fresh. I omitted the potatoes. This will be a family favorite from now on. Thanks, Claire.

Mississippi Tea Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2006
Oh my goodness, these cookeis are so good! I made myself refrain from eating the dough but I can't stop eating the cookies. I used powdered buttermilk but I couldn't tell that it made any difference. I had a wave of nostalgia because these taste so much like the rolled sugar cookies that I used to make for my daughter when she was younger. Brought back many happy memories. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Spanish Squash

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2006
Yum! This is so delicious. I used minced garlic mixed in with the squash and onions, but didn't change anything else. It smelled delicious while cooking. I served it over plain white rice and I think that was a good addition. Thanks for recipe.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
Wow! Could this be any easier?! And I've never made Alfredo sauce before. I used it in the Pesto Chicken Florentine recipe on this site and it was fabulous! Will use again and again.
