Cranana Jam

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
This is the yummiest jam I've ever tasted! This was my first attempt at canning anything and it was so easy. I used a waterbath canner and processed the jars for 10 minutes in it. The amazing thing about this jam is that it really, really, really does taste like strawberry! This is perfect for my stepdaughter who is allergic to strawberry but loves the taste of strawberries! I would let it set for about 3 minutes before pouring into jars just because my first poured jar had the banana and jelly part seperate a bit, but all the rest were perfect, so I'm thinking the pectin just needs a moment to set before you begin pouring. If you mash your bananas up well, it mixes just fine, and comes out a lovely rosy red color perfect for the holidays! This is a great first recipe for someone who has never attempted a jam before.

Walnut Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
These just got hailed by my husband as the BEST cinnamon rolls he's ever had (and he's had them fresh from an Amish bakery so that's saying a LOT). It is my new favorite recipe as it's quicker than totally from scratch and tastier than the harder recipes as well. We substituted finely chopped pecans for walnuts and used half and half instead of cream, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Very easy and fun recipe-a must try!

Banana Upside-Down Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
This recipe is awesome! My family rated it a 10 out of 5 stars, hehe. Quick to prepare, nice presentation, and a great alternative to those that find pineapple to be too caustic for their tastes. The only change I made was that I couldn't find banana cake mix, so I used a buttery yellow cake mix and added 1 tsp. of artificial banana flavoring. Next time I will increase the amount of brown sugar and nuts on the bottom, just because we really liked that part the best, but really this recipe is great as-is!

Traditional Gyro Meat

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
Pretty decent. Spices are a bit strong, but certainly still okay. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be, and made a great substitute for eating out. Only slightly more involved than making a meatloaf, really. Also, I subbed dehydrated onion flakes and grilled the slices before serving.

Orange Breakfast Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This is one of my favorite recipes now! I substituted 1-1 lb. loaf of frozen-thawed bread dough instead of the 6 rolls, kept the rest of the recipe exactly the same and these turned out really good! They rose really high and were excellent in flavor! This is a super-easy very solid recipe...give it a try you won't be dissapointed!

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
Best peanut brittle I've ever had. We followed the instructions to a T, and it turned out wonderfully. We did wait and add the peanuts at 250 degrees, but other than that, followed the recipe exactly. It was my first time making peanut brittle, and I'm just ecstatic at how great it turned out!

Mom's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
I made this chocolate cake in Colorado, and attempted to make it into cupcakes. It was edible, but didn't raise right, fell in the middle of each cupcake as well as in the middle of the square cake (made with the leftover batter). It did have an unusual flavor from the coffee, but I would definately add more flour if you are in a high-altitude area. I probably won't attempt this recipe again, thanks anyway!

Cucumber Gyro Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
Not bad. I subbed 1/2 c. yogurt for 1/2 c. of the sour cream, and added a Tbl. of sugar, as well as some feta cheese, crumbled. I shoulda thrown it all in the blender, b/c I like a thinner sauce. This recipe was simple, and it was okay, but I may still use another recipe if I have more time on my hands next time.

Strawberry Pie IV

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
This is not an "omigosh, that's good" recipe, but it's quick, and fairly tasty. I wouldn't take it to a potluck, but I can't say that if I wound up with an abundance of strawberries that I wouldn't make it either...I added a bit more lemon, because it seemed a little too sweet for me, and made it with dream whip (the kind you mix up yourself) instead of cool whip, that could have made a bit of a sweetness difference. Good recipe, but I think I would've preferred to spend a little more time to make a traditional strawberry pie. Thanks for the recipe, though.

Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
It doesn't get any easier than this, folks! I've never been so impressed with a biscuit recipe. It has it all, ease, frugalness, quickness, and the yummy factor. I've made them several times, and they just get better each time. I have used them as a dinner roll, with sausage gravy for breakfast, and with homemade jam, it compliments any meal!

Fudge Bonbons

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
If you love super-chocolately rich recipes, this is the one for you! I used closer to a tablespoons worth of batter for each kiss and I ended up using approx. 40 kisses instead of 60. For a more appetizing look, I put holiday colored sugar sprinkles on the cookies when they were still warm, and pressed the sprinkles into the cookies a little to make them stay. Next time I might try using the Almond Kisses instead, to break up all that gooey chocolate a bit! If you don't like the cookies once the kisses have cooled and re-hardened, try microwaving each cookie for about 10-15 seconds to re-melt the insides. Great with a glass of milk!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Chewy and thick and not at all cake-like...just like I wanted. I also have to say, these are the first brownies I've ever made that were thick, didn't have overly crispy edges, AND cut beautifully? I threw them in the freezer for about 5 minutes to cool properly so I could cut immediately, and they cut perfectly! I'm in heaven and will never make another recipe. I did add about 2/3 cup of chopped pecans as well.

Breakfast Pizza I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
I made this with regular pizza dough and it was good, but kind of light on the egg and meat mixture. Next time I would double the topping part for one regular size pizza dough crust baked in a 9x13 pan. Overall, good solid recipe, just needs a little tweaking for our taste.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
I've tried probably 10 different recipes and 30 variations of those recipes and NONE even came close to this one. I believe the rising of the dough is the key to this wonderful crust, I pre-baked for 5 minutes, then topped heavily and baked for 25 more minutes, and it was thoroughly done, not too crisp either.

Easy Baklava

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
I used all walnuts, minus a couple tablespoons of pecans (they were leftover, so I used 'em). This recipe turned out just as good as any Greek restaurant's does. If I ever decide to torture myself with the monotony of making baklava again, I will definately repeat this recipe!

Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
This recipe was great! If you like praline pecans and creamy sweet potatoes, you'll love this recipe! Very simple to prepare and a crowd pleaser to boot. I halved the recipe and made it in a square baking dish, used chopped pecans in place of the pecan halves, and it converted well. I would double the topping on it in the future, but that's personal preference.

Jeanne's Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
I've NEVER had cookies turn out this well! Perfect recipe! (I used almond kisses, and they are super-yummy! They were also easy to make, and there are lots of parts kids can help with (unwrapping kisses, rolling balls in sugar, and pushing kisses into cookies) so it can be a fun one to try with the family. Tastes like a brownie with a gooey chocolate center while still warm! I had to bake for 10 minutes, and they were absolutely perfect!

Monster Cookies VI

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
Very yummy, and hard to mess up. Precisely what I look for in a recipe! This makes a huge batch of huge cookies, so be prepared with a very large bowl to mix in.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
I followed this recipe exactly minus the nuts. It could use more apple, but was tasty and we will definitely be making again!

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
Awesome quick (well as quick as homemade pudding gets) recipe! All other recipes I've tried had things in a different order and I liked the convenience of this one. Easily doubles.
