Alley's Sweet Ham Recipe

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
Very, very good and easy! Used a 6 lb. fresh ham instead of canned (cooked for 6 1/2 hours instead of 8 on low). Other than that, followed the recipe exactly. Did baste a few times while the ham cooked. Will definitely make again.

Alyson's Beef Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Absolutely delicious. Added a teaspoon of cornstarch to thicken. Used red, green and yellow peppers. Served over rice, but egg noodles would be good too. A "keeper" for our family recipe file! ****Update**** My family loves this recipe. I do use about 2 teaspoons of corn starch to thicken the sauce. I don't make it with peppers anymore. I switched to broccoli and sprinkle sesame seeds on top - thanks to the suggestions of others! Quick and easy recipe!

Sweetheart Cupcakes

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Hi! I've been making a variation of this technique for many years. You may want to try this technique for a different look: Instead of piping the colored cake batter into the center of the cupcake as described, use a Tablespoon full of one color batter and place it in the cup. Then take another Tablespoon of batter and place it next or on top of the first one. Then take another color and do the same thing. Repeat until you reach the desired amount of batter in the cupcake holders. Finally, take a long wooden skewer (or similar), place it inside the batter and swirl the batter around a bit - just like you would if you were making a marble cake. This technique results in a "tie-dyed" look which is very retro and fun! Enjoy!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
THE BEST! Only used 1 egg, although 2 eggs would be good as well as no eggs.... Heck, this recipe is good no matter how you make it! May use a pinch of cayenne pepper next time. This is now my "go to" recipe for Mac 'n Cheese.

Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
"PERFECT" is the best name for this recipe. My family loved it. This recipe really doesn't serve 6 though...More like 4. I will double the chicken with the same amount of sauce next time. Served with egg rolls and spinach/mandarin orange salad. OUTSTANDING!

Fudgy Chocolate Cream Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
I'm giving this 5 stars, because I can just IMAGINE how awesome this will be NEXT time I make this recipe! I too added 2 extra teaspoons of cornstarch and and extra 1/2 cup of milk. The pudding was really enough to fill a 9" pie. I did pile high whipped topping, but the pie did need more pudding. Next time I am going to double the pudding mixture and use a deep dish pie pan. Any extra pudding, I'll put into pudding cups or icecream cones. DELICIOUS!

Blueberry Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Excellent. Only had 1/2 the amount of blueberries needed. Still excellent! Used paper liners because after reading some of the reviews I got a bit nervous about them sticking. Worked out great.

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
PERFECTION. Followed the recipe exactly. Used parchment paper. Took out of the oven excactly at 8 minutes, and then slid the parchment paper off the hot cookie sheet and let the cookies cool. SO, SO GOOD! Thanks for the great recipe!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
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!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
OK, I have not made a pecan pie for over 15 years, because the pecan pie I made years ago was a total diaster (with Karo syrup). I tried this recipe and it was THE BEST! Next time I will try the recipe using dark brown sugar and an extra 1/2 cujp of pecans. Thank you for the recipe! UPDATE: I made another pecan pie today. This time I used dark brown sugar (instead of light) and an extra 1/2 cup of chopped pecans...PERFECT!

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
I must have forgotten to rate this one... I've made this recipe many times. As written it is a 4 star recipe (I made it this way several times). But something was missing... Another reviewer figured it out - ADD 1 teaspoon cumin. Decrease Chili powder to 1 teaspoon. It makes all the difference! Great, easy recipe!
