The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
I've never made a really good banana bread until I tried this recipe this morning. I did modify some things--used real butter, half white and half brown sugar, added 1 tbs cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla, and a dash of salt. I didn't measure the bananas, but used the four I had on hand that were mostly black on the outside, soft and sweet on the inside. Sprinkled the top with sliced almonds, since it's what I had on hand. It baked up beautifully in exactly one hour. What a great Sunday breakfast!

Liege Belgian Waffles with Pearl Sugar

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Great recipe. First time making these and whole family is addicted. Did not have pearl sugar handy so chopped up a bunch of sugar cubes. Worked great!

Beer Braised Irish Stew and Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
This is such an great recipe. Very rich and decadent tasting. I used a big can of Guinness for the beer and the stew was awesome. Never had Colcannon before but it was so good. I cooked the cabbage in the bacon grease just for added flavor and had to stop myself from eating all the cooked cabbage by itself. Thanks so much for an excellent recipe!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Absolutely love these. Added a dash of salt and made 10 regular sized muffins since I don't own a mini-muffin pan. Outstanding.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
Followed recipe exactly and really enjoyed this cake. It's dense and moist, but not too heavy. Excellent flavor. I baked it in a 9x13 pan and topped it with a nice fudge icing. Very decadent.

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
Yumm-o! Made 2 1/2 times the sauce, doubled the meat, and added red peppers and broccoli (gotta have my veggies). Did not double the red pepper flakes. 1 TBS was perfect heat with the amount of sauce I made. Added a little cornstarch towards the end to thicken up the sauce. Served with white rice. This is so good I can't stop eating it.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
So good and so simple. Much better flavor than that canned junk. Left out green pepper simply because I didn't have any on hand. Served on soft, toasted onion rolls. Will definitely make this on a regular basis.

Poppy Seed Onion Bread

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
This was the first time I ever made bread and it's awesome! I can't get my son to stop eating it. I don't have a bread machine, so made the dough in my Kitchenaid mixer. Also didn't have onion powder, so I used garlic powder instead, otherwise followed the directions. Never knew making bread was so easy. Thanks for a great recipe! Edit: Have made this bread about 10 times now, we just love it that much. It turns out great every time, even when I forget to add the butter (which happens about 50% of the time!). :)

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
Awesome chocolate chip cookie. Better than the two top rated recipes from this site. Only thing I did was add 1 full tsp of salt rather than a 1/2. Had to bake each batch for 14 minutes and the recipe made 4 dozen cookies for me and I kept picking at the dough because the flavor is excellent. Gotta love all that buttah! :) Edit: Made again and added an entire bag of semi-sweet chips and an entire bag of milk chocolate chips. >_> Wonderful!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
OMG these are so good (eating one atm). Have never made cinnamon rolls before and these turned out perfect. I did double the filling because the "goop" is the best part, and used part light brown sugar and part dark brown sugar. I don't have a bread machine, so I followed other suggestions for making them in my kitchen aid. Super easy. Rolled and cut them and put them in a glass baking dish in the fridge overnight. Pulled them out in the morning 30 minutes before baking and baked for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Whooooo!

Cranberry Orange Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Yummy bread. I'm new to bread-baking and don't own a bread machine, so I had to wing this recipe. Warmed up half the orange juice, added a tbs of sugar and proofed the yeast on that for 5 minutes. Then added the rest of the ingredients and let my kitchen aid knead the dough for 10 minutes. Doubled the walnuts and soaked the craisins overnight in orange juice. Because of the extra moisture the dough was very sticky, but I added a little extra flour and it was great. Rose beautifully and has an awesome flavor. Wonderful toasted with butter.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

These were creamy and delicious. I used half-n-half instead of milk because it's what I had in the fridge, otherwise followed recipe. Excellent flavor and texture!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
So very good. Added some cumin, but otherwise stuck to the recipe (even using the full 5 ounces of hot sauce). Wonderful flavor and not too spicy at all -- just right for us.

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Awesome banana cake! Except for using half white sugar and half brown sugar, I followed the directions exactly -- including the unusual baking/freezing method. My cake turned out light, super moist, and very flavorful. Not at all like banana bread, except in flavor. This was definitely a "cake." Only used 2 cups of powdered sugar in the icing...that is plenty for the perfect amount of sweetness. Thanks for a great recipe!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Me and hubby both loved this salad. I added julienne carrots and sugar snap peas. As recommended, cut the oil to 1/3 cup and it was plenty. Also used light olive oil instead of veggie oil. Very nice recipe!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This is very good and I love that you can just use whatever veggies you have on hand. Definitely add some onion though. The directions need to be updated, however. I always cook my scrambled eggs separately and stir into the rice at the last minute. Recipe should also specify that the rice should be cold before stir frying. If you use fresh cooked white rice you will end up with a sticky, sloppy mess.
