Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
Being from the south I LOVE black beans. I baked this thinking that I wouldn't be able to taste the beans, but they are ALL I could taste. I tried this recipe to make a low fat version of brownies. I suggest modifying other recipes.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This was a great creamy enchilada recipe. I did change one thing-I replaced cream of mushroom with cream of chicken. Wonderful recipe. Thanks!

Chocolate Chip Dream Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
These were too gooey. They didn't set. Maybe if I made them the day before... I think the recipe has potential but needs some tweeking and because of that, I am only giving 2 stars. Sorry.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
I have made this several times and it is always a hit! It makes the perfect amount for our family of six to eat with chili or soup. I substituted milk for buttermilk because that was what I had. Thanks for the great recipe.

Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
It was a huge hit! I was asked to bring popcorn balls, but I had never eaten or made them before. I made them exactly like the recipe. I only wish I had followed others suggestions and mixed it in a flat/shallow dish like a casserole dish and not a bowl. Messy.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
These were so yummy! Just make sure you cook the oats long enough or they will fall apart. They were still yummy though.;)

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
Fantastic recipe. I substituted 1/2 cup margarine and 1/2 cup butter flavoring shortening for the butter. They turned out soft and delicious. I followed the directions and made the 3 Tbsp. dough balls. They made a LARGE cookie. It was fun for the kids to eat, but next time I will probably make the balls smaller for regular sized cookies. Thanks for the recipe. I will be making these again-soon.

Pudding Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
These turned out great! I made mine using chocolate pudding and miniature m&m candies. They were a huge hit with my kids. I think there are endless possible combinations. I will definitely use this recipe often.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Produced a beautiful and delicious result. I decorate cookies and was looking for an alternative to using Meringue powder ((costly)). I loved the results of this recipe. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Caramel Brownies II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
I read this recipe, and was excited to try them. Sorry, but I didn't like the taste and I didn't like the texture. My brownie loving gang didn't like them. The idea was good, but taste-no.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
I love this frosting. It is very versatile. Use less liquid and it can make roses and stiff flowers, add more liquid and it is a creamy frosting. My advice is make sure the butter is room temperature and cream well, and then add the cocoa and cream them together well. Then, add the sugar and milk for a non-gritty texture. I followed others advice and reduced the cocoa. I also made the frosting the day before so the taste was smooth. It makes a generous amount and generously frosted and decorated a 12 inch double layer cake.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I planned on giving these away for Christmas treats, but they were too much work and tasted awful! They were so mushy. Sorry. I really wanted to like it.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
My sister has a wonderful cinnamon roll recipe that she won't share. I set out to find a good recipe, and this recipe is better than my sister's! So, if you're reading this Lynette-I don't need your recipe anymore-this one beats yours! ;) I don't have a bread machine so I used other reviewer's advice on how to make this without a bread machine. I also made them the night before and put them in the fridge just before letting them rise the last time. I just pulled them out the next morning and put them in a cold oven, turned it to 350 degrees, and baked for 25 minutes. Next time I will probably place them in 2 8X8 pans or 2 8" round pans to give them more room to expand and for more even baking. In my 9X13 pan, the outer buns browned and baked well while the inner buns had some doughie spots. I made no changes to the recipe and it came out delicious.

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I loved it! Like another reviewer, I was a little confused about the cream cheese chunks. I creamed 80% of the cream cheese and added the other chunks. Next time, I'll cream it all. The chunks made for an odd bite here and there. I also used brown sugar for the topping (like others) and highly suggest it. This recipe is delicious and all my children, even the picky ones, devoured it.

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This is devine! I have used it on chocolate cakes, banana nut bread, and for frosting sugar cookies. This recipe yields a generous amount, so I have 1/2 it to use for smaller needs and turns out perfectly.
