Clone of a Cinnabon - Alley's Version

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
Delicious! The rolls were devoured by my family. Not a morsel was left. After reading a gazillion reviews on this recipe, here are the changes that I made, and will continue to make as this is THE perfect cinnamon roll recipe!... I made my dough in my bread maker. What I did different: 1.) I added about 1/2 of a package of instant vanilla pudding when I added the flour (evidently, this is the "secret" ingredient that Cinnabon uses, and using the pudding adds that extra specialness to the roll) 2.) I added 2 Tablespoons of flour to the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture to keep it from getting too "runny" - worked perfectly. 3.) After I got the rolls into the pan, I covered the pan with plastic wrap and put them in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, I removed the plastic wrap and placed them in a cold oven - then turned the oven on to 375 degrees and baked for about 30 minutes. They rose beautifully. YUMMY!

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
Absolutely delicious! Followed the recipe exactly with one exception; I poured the batter into three 9" pans to make a 3 layer cake. Turned out perfectly.

Blueberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
Sorry - Made this recipe as stated. Much too sour/tart/bitter? for my family's taste. I added more sugar, and while it was better, we just didn't care for it.

Amy's Creamy Black Bean Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Delicious. Made all of the dressing, but only used 1/2 when I tossed it in with the beans and veggies. For my family's tastes, it was a good choice - perfect amount. Thanks for the recipe, will be making it again.

Peach Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
Absolutely delicious! I had very juicy peaches. I was worried the ice cream would come out runny, but it didn't. Followed the recipe exactly. It was a bit too sweet, but heck, it's ice cream - we enjoyed it! NOTE: Homemade icecream is always very soft right after making it. Even 2-3 hours isn't enough to firm it up. Best if it is stored in an air-tight container overnight for best (more firm) results!

Marinated Barbequed Vegetables

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Recipe was good, but I have others that are much better, so I will not use this one again. Made as directed. The lemon flavor was a bit overpowering and the marinade definiely needed salt and pepper.

Simple Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Served for large family dinner last night. Everyone gave it 4 stars. Very good salad. Made as directed. Next time I make it (which I will), I will leave out the cheese or choose another "chunkier" kind (parmesan isn't quite right) and cut the dressing by 1/3 - 1/2. Very good recipe though!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
My family rated a solid 4 stars. Way too spicy/hot for us though! Next time will use only 1/2 of a jalepeno. Served with Lime Chicken Soft Tacos and Strawberry Avocado Salad from Allrecipes.com!

Meredith's Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
Followed the directions with no changes made. The cheesecake while baking, unfortunately overflowed quite a bit - drippings everywhere on the bottom of my oven. It settled back down though. AFter baking, the top of the cheesecake cracked quite a bit. The taste was quite good, but there are better.

Everything was great - except for the glaze. My family didn't care for the glaze. Will definitely make again though - without the glaze. Thanks for the recipe!

Ham 'n Swiss Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Super easy and different. Try with turkey or roast beef and different types of cheeses too. I did not use canned ham - used thick ham slices that I diced. Thanks for the recipe!
