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!

Applesauce Oat Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
Just made this and am eating it warm and without frosting. What a great little cake. Very moist, not too sweet, dense, but not heavy. I didn't have shortening, so I used a stick of butter instead and it turned out awesome. Thanks for the 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.

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.

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.

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!). :)

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

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.

White Chocolate Gorp

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Outstanding! Followed recipe except I used peanut butter M&M's instead of mini M&M's. Gave this as gifts in my office and someone said to me "What kind of drug did you put in that stuff because I couldn't stop eating it!"

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!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
Wow, this is so good I can't stop eating it. Good thing it makes a ton! Only things I changed was to use vegetable juice instead of tomato juice because it's what I had on hand and I did not add any water. Looking forward to having this as my lunch this week at work. YUM.
