Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
I have made this recipe for years its the only pumpkin pie my family will eat now! One hint- you dont need to whip the egg whites and it turns out the same, very fluffy and raised. I have always used deep dish pie crusts, makes one very full and nice, I dont use any nuts in the crumb topping.. make sure your butter is very chilled before you start using it, also, add 2 tablespoons more flour, seems to absorb and set better. Lastly, I cover the outside of the crust with foil, it bakes so fast with this recipe, can take it off 10 minutes before its done, but I use frozen crusts, so easier and just as good to me. You really cant mess this pie up, my husband even helps make it, its so easy. ****

Sunday Best Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2004
WHAT A SALAD!! This is the best salad I have ever had. So far the pineapple juice acids havent turned anything brown, but next time I will add some lemon juice to be absolutely sure. So far its good but im making it for a large group for the first time. And with lemon juice you dont have to wait 10 minutes, you just douse it in it and go. Wow, i will make this for every family gathering from here on out. Its seriously that good. 5*****

Becky's Oatmeal Carmelitas

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2003
We have made carmelitas for years, its even in our church cook book. This is a great recipe, althought you do not have to get caramel candies... You can use caramel ice cream topping like smuckers, etc. For xmas I used the milky way kind of topping it was wonderful. Just a tip to save you a lot of time, who wants to unwrap all those candies, expensive too..

Carne Adovada

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2002
This was very good, although I was expecting it to taste more authentic, tasted jult like a roast to me. It was very good in a burrito with beans and all the fixins, this helped a lot with the taste better than on its own.

Shepherd's Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
Yikes, this was pretty gross.. I made it exactly how I was supposed to, the mashed potatoes made it edible for dinner, but definitely no seconds and no leftovers from this meal. Its still in the fridge and my husband makes fun of me asking if i will put it in his lunch. YUK!

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
I used a French Vanilla cake mix, (it was all I had) and grated the cold butter like someone mentioned. Great idea! My house smells like Disney World main street! Tastes very good. I added cinnamon sugar mixture to the top and only had to bake it35 minutes. It was done. Great recipe!!

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2005
Beautiful! And how much cheaper are these to make then the real butter ones that arent even flaky! I threw out my old recipe once I tasted these. THis was SO insanely flaky and buttery flavored. I got the butter flavored crisco, instead of regular. And did refrigerate it to rest it for 30 minutes before rolling it. It didnt make ANY extra, in fact, was a bit chintzy on how much it made at all, REALLY had to work with it to make it fit into a regular pie crust. But wow, what a crust. Everyone at easter supper commented on how good the crust was. Calling me Martha. (I am by NO means like martha stewart, but they were making fun of me becuase I found time to make my own crust..) Little did they know it took only a few minutes to make. MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS CHILLED!!! THAT IS THE SECRET TO A GOOD PIE CRUST!! I put the shortening in the freezer for a few minutes, I measured it, and put it in the freezer. Oh one more thing, to pre bake a pie crust, you DO NOT need to add beans or rice into it as weights. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IT PRICK IT WITH A FORK ABOUT 10 TIMES ON THE BOTTOM AND PRE BAKE IT. It will not fluff up and will turn out beautifully!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
I was delighted to find this recipe, we had some Tilapia in the freezer and needed to use it up. My husband and I both hate fish usually and we both LOVED it!! I didnt have basil, but I used Dill and it was spectacular, I give it a 5 star, he rates it a "strong 4" very impressive for him and for fish in my house!! :)

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Made it into rolls and used Honey instead of sugar. Used my bread machine on DOUGH setting, took it out, put them in pie tins let them rise again and baked them. Good rolls!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
This part of the recipe is KILLER if you set it aside then use it to pour over fetucchini noodles and chicken. The best! **Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the butter until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in the flour and salt, and simmer until bubbly. Mix in the broth and milk, and boil, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir in 2 cups mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Season with the basil, oregano, and ground black pepper. Remove from heat, and set aside.

Apple Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Pretty good. Easy to make. I read how some reviewers thought it was bland so I used Maple and Brown sugar oatmeal packets for the oatmeal. It was more of a topping for ice cream to me though, mine didnt make 'bars' but then again we ate it right out of the oven. We loved it. Will make it again when I need something quick to do with apples that are about to go bad. Thanks!

Peach Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
omg. this peach pie is insane. I just made my FIRST fruit pie ever and it was this one for a BBQ with fresh peaches. Everyone gobbled it up and said it reminded them of their grandmas or moms pie. I was almost laughing, because it was my first one ever!!!!! LOOK NO FURTHER, this should be in everyones recipe box. Because you can probably use a lot of different fruits for this pie. THANK YOU!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2005
Well, I was afraid this would not turn out just because what makes it taste coconutty? Well, I think the secret is making it the night before and letting the flavors blend overnight in the fridge covered in plastic wrap. It took FOREVER to make tho, that constant stirring almost killed me! But it was the best pie at Easter dinner. well worth it. Also, WATCH your coconut. If you toast it, it burns rather quickly if you dont watch it. I had to make 2 batches before I got it right. EVERYONE loved this! SUPER creamy and yummy! I topped it with heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar beat until ultra fluffy and topped it with that, SO nice and beautiful! I will make this forever now. Next time I may add 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp of coconut extract and see if that makes it sweeter. It tastes mainly like cream, sweet cream. I like a strong coconut flavor tho.

White Cake Frosting I

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2004
WOWEE is all i can say! I went to the store to get the things to make a cake and forgot frosting! It was home made so i thought I would look on here, this site hasnt let me down yet! THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING AND SO EASY!!! I will NEVER buy frosting again. Listen guys, All I did was mix the powdered sugar and used ALL butter! (my shortening smelled funky so i tossed it out..) I used sugar, real butter, real vanilla extract, and the water. It was so good, my husband loved it too. Its easy to spread and tasted amazing. I just let the butter warm at room temp before whipping it with the mixer. thats it! if i could give 6 stars I would!!

Banana Crepes

Reviewed: May 21, 2004
This is the best recipe I have gotten off this website yet! I just made them for my family, and everyone was practically licking their plates! The recipe was seemigly easy since I am a crepe rookie. One tip, DO NOT USE PAM or any other cooking spray, your crepes will not turn out. I learned this early on in the recipe. Use little butter if any to use the crepes and roll the pan, they arent supposed to be like a pancake like my 1st ones were turning out to be. Supposed to be real thin, paper like. Also, I would somehow find out how to make more of the syrup the bananas are cooked in, this was amazing. Maybe double the amount of half and half? It would thicken up in no time. I will cut the bananas in halves then in pieces next time, so you didnt have a real long banana in your crepe. Good luck, you gotta try this, i told my husband i will cook this on Christmas Morning from now on. What a tradition!

Oven-Baked Caramel French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I know better than to try out a new recipe on Christmas day. :( I have yet to try a soak overnight french toast recipe that isnt soggy. I did reduce the milk to 1 cup and used Texas Toast. It was still soggy in parts and dry in others. ? Its too sweet too, and I LOVE sweets. Maybe all the other sweets that come with Christmas is too much and I should make a savory Breakfast recipe for us. Who knows. I didnt enjoy this at all and made it exactly as stated just reducing the milk by half a cup in hopes to reduce soggi-ness. No luck. I gave it 3 stars because it did have a good taste. i could probably tweak it and come up with something yummy. But regular french toast is actually better than this. Good luck.

Apple Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
I have tried a LOT of recipes on this site and this one is just o.k. It was really good but there are so many other things to make besides this. My husband didnt really like them either. They were better as they sat longer, let me say. So let them sit, they are good to try something different, and DO serve with vanilla ice cream, i like things VERY sweet though. Seems like the tortillas almost need to be fried or something.

Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2002
This recipe was delicious! My husband (very picky eater) rates this a 4 1/2 5 star dinner- very impressive for our house! I added chili powder to the soup mixture and onions. The corn tortillas definitely fell apart so if I was serving guests I would dip them in oil like the other review stated, that would have been helpful to roll them up. Made a lot too! *****
