Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
I haven't made a cobbler in ages and was hesitant to try this recipe because of conflicting reviews, but I made some modifications and it was AWESOME! I used 8 fresh peaches, 1 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon in the fruit, 3/4 cup sugar and one tsp vanilla in the batter, and 1 cup hot water with 4 Tbsp butter. Baked in a 12 x 9 pan for one hour and let rest for 30 minutes to let the juices gel up. I would give 5 stars, except for the modifications needed. Definitely will make again!

Oyster Dressing (Stuffing)

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
This is really good as is, and very similar to what I grew up with in Indiana. The only change I make is adding some chopped giblets from the turkey, along with a little broth they were cooked in. I've always used white bread because it doesn't compete with the delicate flavor of the oysters. If you never tried oyster dressing, try this one!

Traditional Indiana Persimmon Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
I gave this 5 stars because it is almost exactly like the recipe that's been handed down in my family from the same era, and it is simply heavenly! Living in Texas for 25 years, I still crave persimmon pudding at Thanksgiving. I'll be contacting Dillman Farms this year!

Smothered Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
My husband loved this, but then, who could resist bacon, cheese and carmelized onion with ANYTHING!? I did add some fresh garlic, can't cook without it. Definitely will be making this again, and loved the easy clean-up!

Brown Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
This was so easy and delicious! I omitted the split peas b/c I didn't have any on hand, and used diced tomatoes with green chilies to spice it up a bit. A definite keeper! (I'm making it again this weekend)

Ting-Town Barbeque Beef Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Best barbeque ever, in my book! The only thing I changed was using steak sauce instead of Worchestershire, just because it's what I had. I let it cook all day on low in the crock, then put it on the stovetop for about 45 min on medium-low to thicken the sauce. "Dipping" the buns is a great tip, too. Would make a great 'stuffed' baked potato, IF there were any leftovers! Sending this recipe to my whole family, thanks so much for sharing!!

BREAKSTONE'S Triple Chocolate Bliss Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
This cake is delicious!! I didn't do the Cool Whip and Raspberries however. I did add 1 cup chocolate chips to the batter as well as 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract. Just a hint of mint and so yummy! Frosted with Pillsbury milk chocolate frosting because I was in a hurry for a co-worker's birthday. Decorated with some fresh strawberries and voila! Instant raves! Baking time was just a smidge over one hour.

Korean Barbequed Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
This was really good, but I think it would make a better stir-fry than grilled dish. Also, I would use more chili paste next time to give it more kick.

Lemon Herb Barbeque Sauce for Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
This is wonderful! It's a very different flavor for barbequed chicken. I have shared this with friends and co-workers and it's a hit! I marinated the chicken overnight to let the flavors blend. Thanks!

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
Still trying to figure out why this has such high ratings.... It took forever to bake, and even though I used fresh, sweet peaches, there wasn't much flavor. I even added some almond extract as some others suggested. Big waste of time and ingredients in my opinion.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
Excellent cake! I made it for a birthday at work Thursday, now I have to make another for Monday! Frosted it with chocolate buttercream enhanced with Nutella. It flew out of the pan! Thanks for sharing a great cake!

Zesty Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
This sounds good but seems to be missing something. I used a "zesty" italian dressing as some suggested but it was still pretty bland for our taste. Thanks anyway.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
This is a fabulous salad! Definitely use the red seedless grapes instead of raisins. I didn't have white wine vinegar so I used rice vinegar and it's great! Also used lowfat mayo with no issues. The whole family loves it, always requested for get-togethers.

Lemon Pecan Pound Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
This cake has good texture and flavor, but is on the dry side. I barely baked it long enough to be done, so it wasn't the baking time. I think this would be better if there was some sour cream or pudding in it for extra moisture. The glaze helps, but not enough. Pound cake implies a pound of butter, and this only calls for 1/2 pound - maybe the recipe was adapted and that's why it's a little off and why the pan size seems to be off as well? I'll try again with tweaking. Good starter recipe, the pecans add a good flavor and crunch.

Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I would give this a 5-star rating but for 3 things: It does NOT make 5 dozen cookies, a 2-inch log is impossible (mine were about 1-1/4"), and they would not have had much cinnamon flavor had I not added it to the cookie dough. They are delicious, crispy-chewy cookies, though. I also used the left over cinnamon-sugar & sprinkled on top when they came out of the oven. A keeper!

Piggies (Sugar and Cinnamon Pie Dough Cookies)

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
My mom used to make these with leftover pie crust. I think the trick is to roll the dough thin and slice them about 1/2 inch thick. Delicious childhood memories!

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
This was really good and quick for a mid-week dinner. I knocked it to 4 stars because you can't make anything "Southwest" without onion, garlic, chili and cumin at a bare minimum. Good blend of textures with the corn and beans, and with some spice tweaking, it was a hit. I served it over rice and it looked just like the picture!

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This is without a doubt the best slaw ever! I took it to my in-laws for dinner and my MIL (the slaw afficionado) raved. I did use a little sesame oil in the mix to give a little more "Asian" flavor. Outstanding!

Pumpkin-Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I made bars since it seemed like they were more cake-y. Used a whole can of pumpkin for more flavor, added another 1/3 cup oats and about 1/3 cup Splenda, used golden raisins and pecans. Baked in a 13 x 9 for about 35 minutes. Hubby says YUM!
