Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Really excellent dish. The ingredients are spot on. I did top mine with crushed potato chips in place of cornflake crumbs, just for some extra flavor.

Candy Cane Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Once again I tried to make candy cane cookies and once again failed. The dough would not cooperate! As soon as I started to roll the ropes the dough fell apart because the heat from my hands made it unworkable. Argh. I just made red and white drop cookies, so they are edible. Too much work to do again. 3 stars because the cookies themselves are good.

Gingerbread Cutouts

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
This is the same recipe for Gingerbread cookies in the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. I have never used it to make a gingerbread house, only to make cookies. It's a fantastic, easy to make recipe, and kids always have fun both decorating and eating these. Not sure why others complain about the taste, I found them great!

Southern Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
Wonderful recipe. The frosting absolutely makes this cake!! If you don't have butter flavored extract, don't make a special trip to buy it because I didn't think it added anything to the cake. I also used paste food coloring (comes in little jars, made by Wilton, buy at a hobby shop) because liquid can affect the taste. Make sure you only mix the cake ingredients until just mixed together, overmixing will dry it out! Beat your frosting for a while, it needs to be whipped very well to get the right consistency. Finally, I always make my own buttermilk by adding a teaspoon or so of white vinegar to my milk, and let it sit for about 10 minutes.

Cajun Spice Mix

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
Excellent, I did use only half of the salt called for, and left out the red pepper flakes.

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
Not good. The cornstarch slurry turned it into a thick mess and no matter how much water I added it did not thin. I won't make again.

Cinnamon Sugar Butter Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
Meant to mimic a MF cookie, well yeah, since it's copied from her cookbook! But anyway, I don't care where the recipe came from, it's fantastic!! For something different, I made these cookies with lemon extract IPO vanilla, and mixed the sugar with lemon zest and a bit of coriander. FABULOUS! You do need to chill the dough before rolling though, that's an important step left out of the instructions. The cooking time is spot on, follow it exact.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Bland, runny, and I couldn't figure out why the basil was in there. I will continue to search for a decent potato soup.

Fresh Blueberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
This didn't make blueberry pie, this made blueberry soup! I have no idea what went wrong, as I followed the directions and let the pie set for at least an hour. I won't be making this again. The 3 stars is because the soup tastes good.

Root Beer Float Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
I really liked this cake, however I think that dream whip (the whipped topping mix I used) sets up much better when you use milk (as called for on the packet). Made with the root beer it just, well, deflated. Next time I would follow the recipe exactly, except use milk in place of root beer in the frosting mix and add a teaspoon of root beer extract, instead of root beer in the frosting.

French Silk Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
This does taste like a french silk pie! Very good. Next time, I'd cut back just a bit on the sugar though.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
This was OK, but honestly, not good enough to stop using a cake mix.

German Beef Rouladen

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
I have to agree with the other reviewers who complained it was too bland. The gravy tasted like water, and the beef wasn't much better. i won't use this recipe again.

Pumpkin Cookies VI

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
This made a very cakey (almost the consistency of a muffin even) cookie. I used all brown sugar and added an extra 1/4 cup of oatmeal.

My Navy Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
I really liked this soup, but next time I make it I will sub ham for bacon. I don't like soggy bacon, it just wasn't good in this and I found myself avoiding it while eating. Also, you don't need a whole stick of margarine, I used about 3 tablespoons and a generous pouring of olive oil.

Bean Burrito Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
I had high hopes for this recipe but unfortunately, cannot recommend it and my review keeps getting edited. Not trying to be mean, only honest. The frozen burritos combined with canned soups made for a very unappetizing combination.

Italian Restaurant-Style Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
It is indeed similar to the dressing at Olive Garden. Similar, but not exact. I also subbed olive oil for veggie oil. Really enjoyed this.
