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!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Wow this was such an awesome recipe. I adore this soup in the well-known restaurant, but this homemade version is even better, in my opinion. Only thing I changed was to use kale instead of spinach. It has a nice heat to it--but not overpowering (to me at least) and it came out rich, flavorful, and delicious. I ate two bowls, but should have stopped at one because it's such a filling soup that I felt stuffed later. Can't wait to have more of it tonight!

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
Excellent, super-chewy peanut butter cookie. I did double the amount of peanut butter because they're never "peanut buttery" enough for me with just half a cup. They baked up huge, chewy, and perfect in exactly 14 minutes. To the reviewer below who said "keep it real people," you obviously did something wrong.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
So yummy I had to go for a second walk today to make up for this decadent dinner! Followed directions for chicken as written, but took a major shortcut for the sauce because I lack patience :). After browning chicken in pan poured in some chicken stock, covered and let it cook for 20 minutes. Removed chicken and stirred in two big spoonfuls of the new Philly garlic flavored cooking cream. Amazing flavor. Feel like I need another walk just writing about this excellent dish.

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!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
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.

Fluffy Pancakes

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!

Brownie Biscotti

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
I adored these. Followed the recipe exactly as far as ingredients go. I baked them for 20 minutes at 375 degrees, removed them from the oven for 15 minutes, sliced them, then baked them for 10 minutes on each side at 300 degrees. I had absolutely no problem with them crumbling.

Mandarin Orange Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
This cake is so very good! I added an extra can of oranges (minus the juice) and some vanilla to the cake batter and used fresh whipped cream, rather than cool whip. I mixed the pineapple with the pudding mix and then stirred that into the fresh whipped cream. The topping came out super thick, rich, and delicious (and yes I used the juice from the can of crushed pineapple). Super moist cake. Simply yummy :)
