Cinnamon, Spice and Everything Nice Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
These are very good cookies with a taste all their own. I only made two minor changes, and that was to use margarine instead of shortening(I personally don't like using shortening for cookies) and I also only used 1 tsp of nutmeg and ginger. My dough was not "stiff" as was indicated it would be. The dough was too gooey to roll so I just scooped it out using my Tablespoon cookie scoop like any other cookie and sprinkled them with sugar before I put them in the oven. Oh, and one other thing, I could not find light molasses, so I used regular. The cookies turned out excellent! This recipe is a keeper! I will definately make them again. Thank you!

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
This is fantastic! After reading several reviews, here are the tweaks that I made, and that I will stick with. 1/4 cup of vegetable oil instead of 1/3. Used an entire can of pumpkin, instead of 1 1/3 cup. Used 1/2 cup of brown sugar in place of honey. 1 teaspoon of Allspice instead of Pumpkin Pie Spice. 1 cup of chocolate chips in place of raisins, left out the walnuts because I didn't have any on hand, or I would have added them too. Baking time, was 80 minutes at 325 degree oven. I have now made 2 loaves, and both turned out perfectly! I love this bread! Thanks!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
This is fantastic! I made a double batch of this on New Year's Eve and it was a huge hit! I used fresh lemon juice in place of lime because of personal preference. I also used red onion, also personal preference. I also salted to my own taste. Other than those personal little tweaks, I followed the rest of the recipe as is. It is excellent! Thank you so much!

World's Best Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
This recipe turned out perfectly! Like other reviewers, I mixed my pb, mallo cream and flour together ahead of time and had it ready. I used whole milk and once the mixture started to boil I set my cooking timer for 5 mintues. Once I removed it from the heat, I used my hand mixer for a little over a minute mixing in the pb, mallo and flour mixture, and then poured in it my pregreased baking dish. Slightly over an hour later it was ready to cut and it is PERFECT! Thank you for a great recipe!

Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
These are so good! I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out perfect! I used a tablespoon cookie scoop and ended up with a little over six dozen cookies. I had 2 boxes of the Andes Mints and used 1/2 mint per cookie and had plenty of mints left over. Thank you for a great recipe!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I made this fudge yesterday and it turned out perfectly! I followed the instructions as they are written, I didn't change a thing. As advised by other reviewers, I waited for the mixture to come to a full rolling boil before I started my 5 minute timer, I also turned the heat down a little during that time. The fudge set up beautifully and was ready to cut after the 2 hours in the fridge. This recipe is a definite keeper! Thank you!

Campbell's Kitchen Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I made this for dinner yesterday, it is really good! I added a small container of fresh sliced mushrooms to the ingredients, that is the only thing I did differently than what is called for. The husband loved it and it has officially been added to the rotation list

Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
I made this two weeks ago and it is awesome! If you would rather not use the burgundy wine, I looked up substitutions and you can use red wine vinegar instead, which is what I did. Also, it does indeed make a lot, so you want to make sure your crock pot can hold every bit of 5 quarts. Mine is a 5.5 quart which allowed me plenty of room. I followed the recipe as is, except I used 2 onions instead of three, and I used sliced fresh mushrooms instead of the button ones. Gooood Stuff!!!

Lemon Lover's Pound Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
This is Very Good! I have made it two different ways. The first time I followed the recipe exactly as it is written. The only thing that went wrong is I had used a bundt cake pan that is less than the 10” pan size that the recipe calls for. I filled it with all of the batter and it rose high above the pan. This resulted in it falling apart when I dumped it. The cake tasted wonderful, it just wasn’t very pretty to say the least, which is my own fault. The second time I went into it a little bit wiser. I used the same pan but when I poured the batter into the pan I stopped about 1.5 inches from the top of the pan. It was Perfect! Also the second time I substituted everything orange where everything lemon is called for. I used orange zest, orange juice and pure orange extract. We Loved It! Either way you go, this makes a wonderful cake!

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
These are Awesome! I followed the directions exactly with the exception of adding nuts, as was my preference. I instead added about a 1/2 cup of mint chocolate chips into the mix. I've made 2 batches of these, they don't last long! Thank you for a great recipe!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
These are good cookies, I wouldn't call them the best, but they are good. The only thing I did differently was I used margarine instead of shortening. I also added a bag of chocolate chips for my husband's taste. Again, they are good cookies, they are just not what I was hoping they would be.

Grandma's Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
I don't know why but this recipe would not work for me and I really wanted it to. Determined, I attempted it 3 times. My first attempt I used the candy thermometer, removing it from the heat once the temperature reached soft ball stage. It never set up. The second time, I tried letting it boil for a full six minutes as was suggested by another reviewer. It never set up. I blamed the weather, it was rainy and unseasonably humid on the day I attempted it and have read this can definitely have an effect on fudge setting up. My 3rd attempt, the weather was dry and cold. I let the mixture boil for a full 8 minutes this time. It never set up. All 3 attempts ended up as a sugary sludge that found its way down my garbage disposal. My 4th attempt was another recipe that turned out perfectly on the first attempt. I really wanted this recipe to work. I have no idea what went wrong but one thing that I do know for sure is that I will never attempt this recipe again.
