Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
I'm not sure why some people thought this was bland. Everyone in my family, which includes 6 kids, loved it. I made very few changes to the recipe. Maybe more quality ingredients or type of onion, soup mix, wocestershire sauce, etc makes a difference? Only thing I would change next time is more carrots. The changes I made this time were slight and just a personal preference. I added a bay leaf in with boiling water and soup mix and then left it in the crock pot while it cooked. I used mini bella mushrooms because my store didn't have button mushrooms. Lastly, I used a sweet, soft red wine because that's what I keep on hand to drink. Delicious and will make again for sure! Would be great over mashed potatoes as well.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
These were yummy! Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I know, from experience, that cinnamon wasn't going to be enough to spice a pumpkin flavored baked good. Pumpkin is bland and generally needs more spice. I added nutmeg, ginger and cloves. The cream cheese mixture was runny, even after chilling. I tried to keep it from touching the paper cups, but it ran no matter what I did. I gave up and just put the cream cheese on top without worrying. Didn't cause any problems with the baking or the removal of the muffin from the paper cup. We have nut allergies in the home so instead of pecans, I used coconut and little nutmeg in the topping. Will be saving this recipe and making it again!

Maritime Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
Delcious! I one and halfed (not double, lol) this recipe and baked it in a 13x9 casserole dish. It was very moist and flavorful and much better then the buckle I tried last year. It's very much like a blueberry muffin but the cake part is a little more cakey then a muffin.

Uglies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
These were really tasty and versatile! I have a couple kids that don't like BBQ so I diced some hot dogs and put it in the 'shell' and topped with cheese for them. Yum!

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I consider myself a good cook and I love coconut but I could not stomach these! Maybe it's just personal preference. The sweetened condensed milk flavor was overpowering and sickenly sweet.

Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
I will be making these again. A tip..these cookies dont spread on their own so you need to use your fingers or a spoon to spread them out before cooking. My first batch was cooked on the bottom and still batter on the top. I just drizzled the frosting and it added just the right amount of sweetness. I also added cloves and nutmeg as personal preference. Everyone loved how light and moist they were. I made a double batch, 116 cookies and they didnt last 24 hours. One more note, my oven usually bakes like the instructions state but my cookies needed at least 13 minutes to set up/ A great breakfast cookie also

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
I'm not sure what the hype is about. They are good, but not what I expected. I made them exactly as stated. I thought it would taste like biting into a cookie hidden in a cupcake but chocolate chips added to the cupcake might have been just as good. I would probably make them again. They are good! Just not something amazing and different.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
I won't buy canned again. I never attempted or thought to make my own...just seemed easier to buy it but this has changed my mind. It's even fool proof. I started making it when I remembered that I had wanted to half the recipe. I ended up using 4 sticks of butter, 5 cups powdered sugar, 1.5 cups cocoa, vanilla and some milk. Still tasted great. More like milk chocolate which was an even bigger hit.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
This is a great, basic roll recipe. I like that it uses all purpose flour because I can never seem to remember to buy bread flour. It's also nice to not need one more item to take up space in my already small home. I don't use a bread machine when I make this. I set the eggs out for a couple hours to warm. Then I place the warm water, warm milk and sugar in a bowl. Dissolve the sugar and then add the yeast and let it proof. Then I add the eggs, butter, salt and flour. Mix well with my hands and put it in a greased bowl, turning once to coat, then cover with towel and let it rise. After one hour (or after it doubles) I punch it down and roll into three small balls per muffin slot and make cloverleaf rolls. I let them rise another hour and then bake. Yummy and they go really fast around here so I bake a double batch which gives me approx. 48 cloverleaf rolls.

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This was an awesome cake recipe. I did use coconut milk instead of cream because some people eating it are watching their sugars. I ended up tossing about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the sauce out because it stopped seeping in and was just running to the edges. The cake was still super moist but not horribly soggy (except one corner peice) Normally I bring leftovers home from BBQ's but not this time. I even have my second one in the fridge right now for my Mom to try. If you love coconut, you'll love this cake. Superb! Would love to try it with banana cake or chocolate cake :)

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Yummy! We ate this right after it came out of the oven. Baked it in a bundt pan. It was really moist and good. I added extra spices just because I like extra :)

Easy Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This was a good sauce but not as good as I was hoping. Might use it again but will continue searching for one that is closer to tasting like the one my family loves. The sauce was easy to make and did taste good though!

Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Made it exactly as the recipe stated and I could have eaten it by the spoonfuls. Made the carrot cake awesome and would rock on chocolate cake, yum!!

Cranberry Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This was a good pie but didn't wow me. I used a premade crust so to get the orange flavor incorporated I add orange oil to a beaten egg and did an egg wash on the crust before adding the cranberry and cherry. I also left out the raisins because it seemed like a weird combo to me :o) A good tasting pie!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Easy and yummy apple pie. It will definitely be my go to recipe when I want apple pie. Only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I added cinnamon and vanilla to the sugar mixture

Chococonut Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
A soft and yummy cookie. Not a very strong coconut flavor in my opinion but my family and friends thought they were perfect. One made the comment that it was like eating a Mounds candy bar. Will make again and might toast the coconut before hand to see if it enhances the coconut flavor.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
Seemed bland like it was missing something. It was better warm with some butter on it. Reminded me of coffee cake only with blueberries. Not sure if some spices would help or maybe some extra vanilla...needs something though.

Strawberry Pina Colada Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This is a good, light tasting pie although not light on calories. Could easily be made with less calories though. The only problem I encountered was that it never set up like that pretty picture they have. I would think without the milk it would set up much easier. It fell apart as I was dishing it. I think making your own crust might help that since the store bought are pretty crumbly. Excellent flavor though and the strawberries and cool whip on top aren't needed unless you really want them :)

Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
This is only my second strawberry rhubarb pie so maybe it's the norm, but it was very soupy but very delcious! I used scottowels to sop up the liguid so the pie wouldn't get soggy. I'm sure there is a trick out there to fix this :) Didn't affect the flavor though and my Mom said she just licked up the liguid. She also said it was the absolute best pie she ever had. Lots of rave reviews....going to keep!!
