Orange Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I made this cake today to test it before taking to a family reunion. I passed it out to neighbors to get a vote and everyone loved it. I used a different recipe for the frosting (Golden Orange Frosting) from this site. Some of us thought the frosting was a little too sugary others loved the frosting. UPDATE: Altered the recipe. Baked in 9x13 pan and used chocolate cake mix. Prepared cake mix according to directions on box. Put a layer of chocolate chips over the batter, about 1.5 cups. Then made the crunchy mix, step 1, and sprinkled over the chocolate chips. Patted down with a spoon and baked for 35-40 minutes. Used Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting, from this site, minus the coconut part. Oh so rich! Get your milk ready! Will make again!!

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
Only change I made was using blueberries instead of strawberries. Very moist! Could be a touch sweeter, but overall a good muffin.

Ukrainian Apple Cake (Yabluchnyk)

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Yum! I just had a slice because I couldn't stand to wait any longer. :) I think my guests will enjoy it too! I baked it for 30 minutes and the apples are perfect and the cake layer is very good. Not too sweet; a perfect compliment to the apples.

Whole-Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
I'm surprised! I didn't think I would like a cake-like cookie. I used only whole wheat flour (3 cups). I used a larger than average chocolate chip (Ghirardelli Bittersweet) and think next time I'll use mini-sized or normal sized chips. I will also only put in 1 to 1 1/4 chips. I had extra in the bottom of the mixing bowl. The dough is stiff, but the cookie is very good. Also, used Splenda. Thanks for the recipe.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
Grandma Johnson, your scones rock! :) I've been making these for a long time and they are the best. I omit the raisins and add mini-chocolate chips and orange peel. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Good Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
These are good! Very buttery flavor. This recipe makes a lot more than 24 small cookies! I made at least 24 very big cookies. I used my pampered chef large scoop. Also, the recipe calls for salt but doesn't say when to put it in. I added it with butter/oil step and I also added the vanilla at this step NOT at the end. The recipe says to stir in the oatmeal, coconut, cereal and flour. That seems kind of odd so I added the flour after the oil/butter, etc was mixed NOT at the end. Then I stirred in the oatmeal, coconut and cereal. My husband thinks I should add some white chocolate chips. Maybe.

Pork Chops with Dill Pickle Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I used my George Forman grill and cooked the pork chops for 6-7 minutes. I marinated them for 8 hours and they weren't over powering at all. Very good!

Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Very pretty dessert. I used a jumbo muffin pan and used the pineapple rings. If you do the same, you will also need a 8 oz. can of pineapple rings. There weren't enough pineapple rings in the 20 oz. can for 14 jumbo muffins. I used pineapple cake mix and the juice from the canned pineapple rings. There wasn't enough juice from the pineapple rings so I used water to make up the difference.

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Wonderful recipe! My husband offered to wash the dishes if I go and give this recipe 5 stars. Who knew a good cauliflower recipe was the way to a man's heart. I did have to cut the cauliflower in half. I followed the recipe as submitted.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
Only two people in my family like sweet potatoes, but all four of us really liked these muffins. I reduced the honey to 3/4 cup and used 1/2 cup of 2% milk instead of yogurt. Oh, I also cheated for the sake of ease and used canned yams. I will cut the topping by 1/2 next time. There was too much left over. Thanks for the recipe.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Love them...and I didn't even have molasses. I had to substitute 1/4 cup of maple syrup and 1 tbsp of honey for the molasses. I left out the 1 tbsp of water. Super soft and delicious. I did freeze the dough for 30 minutes for easier handling. My family thanks you for the recipe. Will try next time with molasses. Update: I tried it as written, except, left out the water, and they were wonderful! I made a glaze with powdered sugar to drizzle over them. Love these!

Crunchy Tuna Turnovers

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
Pretty good. It needed something, but can't put my finger on it. Makes for a nice lunch or easy dinner.

Watergate Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I always think of this cake around St. Patrick's Day. It's hard to tell from the picture but it's a light green from the pistachio pudding. I omit the walnuts and the frosting and add mini chocolate chips. Also, I only use the amount of oil that is called for on the back of the cake mix box. One cup of oil would have been way too much. Quick, easy and very moist.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I halved the recipe to make in a 8 x 8 pan. Turned out very good. My 11 year old didn't like it but my 9 year old did. I couldn't decide if I should add milk or not, as per other reviewers. In the end, I added about 2 Tbsp. of milk and extra cheddar cheese. This is the kind of Mac-n-cheese I grew up with; the baked kind. It was even good the next day.

Easy Chocolate Crackled Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
The name says it all 'Easy'! Very quick to put together and equally delicious. I used a red velvet cake mix and added mini-chocolate chips. A hit with the family. Will make again. :)

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I love when I can find a recipe so easy and equally delicious! It's a great recipe to serve company. I cooked a 2.7 lb. roast for 1.5 hours at 350. I marinated it for 2 hours. It was not over powering with the Balsamic Vinegar. UPDATE: I recently made with boneless thick pork chops and it was just as good. I marinated them for about an hour and used my George Forman grill. EASY!

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I have to give this 5 stars because the whole family loves it. Pleasing everyone (meaning mostly the kids) is no small feat. :P I normally half the recipe because I buy 4 boneless pork chops.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
Awesome recipe! I had only one chicken so I halved the recipe/spices. It still took almost 5 hours. I was scared it would be dry but was juicy and fell off the bones. I followed the advice of others and basted it every so often. Extremely easy to prepare and the whole family loved it. For $3 it made for a great Sunday dinner.

Lauren's Sugar and Spice Black Pepper Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I too doubled the recipe because I used Krusteaz brand Cinnamon Crumb Cake mix. When they cool, they become very thin, but crispy and delicious! I was surprised by how much I liked the hint of black pepper. What an interesting cookie. I will be making again!

Easy Beer Bread Mix

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
So easy and makes a beautiful loaf of bread. I only used 2 tablespoons of melted butter instead of the 1/4 cup called for. Bake for 45 minutes. I will no longer buy the mix. I'll just make my own. Thanks for the recipe.
