Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
LOVED it! This cake is the best chocolate cake recipe that I have ever tried. My daughter said it was "awesome". I made this exactly as written except that I halved the recipe and made a single layer cake in a 11" X 7" pan. This cake was so moist. I made the One Minute Chocolate Icing from this website and it was a good compliment. That icing is very fudge-like. YUM! This will be my "go to" chocolate cake recipe.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2014
These were pretty good as written. I thought they were not sweet enough for my liking, so I made a thin, cream cheese icing and drizzled on them. Next time, I think that I will increase the sugar and see how I like them without icing.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
These are delicious! I typically make banana bread with my over ripe bananas, but thought I would change it up. I made them exactly as written with the exception of adding a tsp of vanilla and they are every bit moist and flavorful as my bread. The crumb topping was just okay. I will definitely make these again.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Everyone in my family went back for seconds! I normally make Chicken Pot Pie with cream of chicken soup instead of making my own cream sauce. This will be a great alternative to making Chicken Pot Pie. My family really liked it, but couldn't tell much difference between the homemade cream sauce and the canned. Odd, but it was really good!

Pecan Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
These little treats are a staple around my house because everyone loves them. Whenever I serve these to guests they always want the recipe. TIP: I melt the butter before stirring it in. That helps to determine how much to put in each cup before baking. Someone mentioned that they were much thinner and overflowed in the oven once the butter melted in the recipe. Also, my trick for having these come right out of the pan is to use a silicone mini muffin pan AND spray it lightly with cooking spray (without flour). I loosen them around the edges as soon as I take them out of the oven, flip the pan over and voila, they fall right out.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2013
This cake is delicious! I made it as written and it is so simple and easy. Can't wait until tomorrow as I know it will be even tastier. This would be good with fresh strawberries and whipped cream,too.

Very easy and absolutely delicious! I added 1/4 tsp of baking powder to both the crust and filling as suggested by another reviewer. These are going into my recipe box.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
These are amazing! I love blonde brownies and this is the best recipe for them that I have found. Made them as stated except that I mixed my chocolate chips into the batter. I bet these would be great warmed up with a scoop of ice cream on top.

Cilantro Serrano Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
Even though I didn't make this as written, I'm still giving it 5 stars. We loved this sauce. I used plain yogurt instead of cream and omitted the pepper. I will make it again with the pepper because I think it would be even better with some spice, but because of my kids, I omitted it. We had this on fish tacos and it was perfect. This is such a easy recipe, I will make it again and again.

Croutons

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
These turned out awesome! I will never buy them again. We always have stale sandwich bread or French bread around the house. These took very little time to make. I used some stale French bread that I was about to pitch so I decided to make croutons. Glad that I found this recipe. These are so good, I am just eating them as a snack.

Cinnamon Croutons

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
I LOVE these things! I have made them several times with white sandwich bread and french bread. I find it easier to melt the butter and brush onto each slice front and back. If you want to stack your slices to cut this works best. When I smeared the butter on and tried to stack the bread slices in order to cut several pieces at one time, the pieces got stuck together and I had to separate each one of them. That's not a big deal, but brushing the melted butter on them keeps the pieces from sticking to one another. Also, don't skimp on the cinnamon sugar, generously apply. I like to just sit and eat them out of a plastic baggy. YUM! They would probably be good on top of oatmeal.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Really liked this! I made it as written except that I used a white cake mix instead of yellow just because that's what I had on hand. This was so moist. My husband rarely eats cake, but he really likes this. I will make this again and again.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
This was okay. I made it as written, but felt like it needed something else. I will try it again, but will try adding a layer of jam or something.

Grandma's Best Ever Sour Cream Lasagna

Yum! We all enjoyed this much better than the traditional ricotta cheese version. I made it as written but omitted the olives. Thanks!

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
My daughters love this cake. I made it as written and didn't frost it. It was good without frosting, but I may try it again with a cream cheese type frosting.

Grits a Ya Ya

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
Yeah! I finally found a recipe that my entire family raved about. I made this as written for the most part, but used Velveeta shredded cheese in the grits. I thought this made the recipe even richer, so next time I will use cheddar or Gouda cheese. This is a very rich dish. This makes alot of sauce, so next time I will use 2lbs of shrimp and more spinach and mushrooms and get 2 meals out of one recipe. I don't think my family would frown over leftovers of this recipe.
