Boiled Water

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
LOVED this recipe! Even though I used the ingredients I had on hand, it came out perfectly. NOTE: I did start with hot water from the tap. It seems to boil quicker if you'll use the quick little tip. Also, I tried it in several different sized pans and it came out the same in each pan. This is a really versital recipe and I will be using it again and again. The only problem I had was.... when I remove the pan, the boiling stops. Maybe someone with more cooking experience can tell me how to correct this one little glitch I found with the recipe. Thank you Seth for a simple, yet very necessary recipe.

Fabulous Fudge Chocolate Cake

I loved this cake! And, so did everyone at my Grandson's Fiancee's Baby Shower. It's chocolately, like it should be and moist. Easy to make and just plain good.

Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2013
This is THE best Carrot Cake I've ever made and tasted. It's not all heavy and greasy. I made it as the author wrote it and added a total of 3 cups chopped walnuts; two in the cake and one for the frosting. It's also easy to make. Basically a dump and stir cake. I used a 9x13 glass baking pan sprayed lightly with baking Pam and baked for 45 minutes at 325 degrees. This is just soooooo delicious! Thank you manella for sharing your perfect Carrot Cake!

Banana Blueberry Muffins with Lavender

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
We absolutely LOVED these muffins! They have everything in them we like; Blueberries, bananas and just a hint of lavendar. And, yet they are not dense and heavy. I made them per the recipe with no changes, except my blueberries were from my freezer and I added them frozen. Also, I used a corn oil/canola oil blend. I will make again for sure! This recipe is a keeper.

Princess Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
I made these cookies in honor of our dear Marianne's Birthday in January. They are a very easy "shortbread" type cookie or butter cookie with a hint of lemon. I did like them very much, but was expecting a real HIT of lemon flavor and it just wasn't that lemon-y. That's the ONLY reason I gave this recipe 4 Stars instead of 5. Next time, I think I'll use more lemon juice and zest. And, I also think I'll ice them with a lemon glaze next time too. They are worthy of making again.

Cream Of Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Carrots are my favorite vegetable and this soup is delicious. I've made it twice in two weeks. I usually always follow a "new-to-me" recipe exactly as written the first time, then tweak to my liking if necessary. But, this time, I thought I knew better and added freshly grated ginger because I also love ginger. It was very good, but the fresh ginger overpowered the carrot flavor. And, afterall, this IS carrot soup. The second time I made it, I used powdered ginger as the recipe called for. Still delicious, and the the carrot flavor was much more pronounced. I will make this again and again following the recipe to the letter, but I think I will roast some (bite sized) carrots in the oven to add at the last minute. My DH needs something to chew. A wonderfully satisfying comfort soup. I LOVE this stuff!

Christine's Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
This is NOT your normal average Meatloaf. Using BBQ sauce will make people ask if you bbq'd your meatloaf. Add more BBQ sauce and less ketchup for even more of a BBQ flavor. Depending on the fat content of your ground beef, you may want to add more bread crumbs. I use ground sirloin hubby grinds so 1/2 cup is enough. Makes great leftovers too. Slice, fry slightly until crispy brown and serve with more BBQ sauce. Or make cold ML and cole slaw Sammiches. This is a real favorite at our house!

Bacon and Caramelized Onion Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
I have found my Christmas morning rolls! These are delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect. I got 16 sweet caramelized onion (canned by DH), bacon and cheese rolls. Each ingredient you can taste distinctly. And, goodness you can eat with one hand. These would be great for breakfast. I served with Chicken noodle soup from this site. I am just learning to make breads and rolls using yeast and this recipe turned out fabulous in taste and texture. I will be making these for many meals. I also think it would be easy to tweak. How about cranberries, swiss cheese and toasted or candied walnuts? Yeah, think I'll try that.

Beat and Bake Orange Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
We LOVE orange flavored anything. I've had this recipe in my RB for some time and when I decided to make Real Strawberry Frosting using oranges in place of strawberries, I knew this would be the recipe. It's really good, in fact, it's very good! The orange flavor comes through and it's still light and cake-like. I half anticipated it would be a little bit heavier than it was. Most difinately a keeper, I'll be making this one again.

Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
Variations on a theme. At the suggestion of Redneck Grandma, I made MY OWN recipe using oranges instead of strawberries. It is beyond fabulous! TY RNG!!! I knew this recipe could easily be interchanged with other BERRIES, i.e., raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. RNG says she's made this versatile recipe using oranges and loved it. Well, RNG... we love it too. This batch was made for my wonderful neighbor who faithfully mows my yard(and is a Beaver fan). He was delighted and ordered more for the Civil War game yet to come. It did take twice as many oranges, cut up; about 2 cups and a little longer to cook down. But, it was so worth it. I also added orange zest.

Chili Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
As the author of this recipe, I was a little bit timid about the amount of chili powders. I was requested to up both the Ancho and Cayenne pepper powder and I think I like it a tad bit spicer. Who knew? I did NOT up the cinnamon. This cupcake is just good!

Cinco de Chili Chocolate Cupcakes with Chili Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
This is my recipe and I was requested to make 50 for an event in Eugene. I amped up the Ancho and Cayenne ground pepper per request to two teaspoons Ancho and 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne in the CC batter. Actually, I thought it tasted good and was still not too hot for this wimp. That's why I like this recipe. Make it as you like... less pepper powder or more. Of course I made some for hubby too! He liked the spicer version too.

Baked Tomatoes Oregano

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
We like tomatoes prepared this way very much. Using Romano cheese gave it the salty taste and the bread crumbs gave it the crunch. Great side for the very little effort. I used Heirloom Tomatoes purchased at the Farm Stand.

Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
Super moist and super delicious. I am always looking for a good pumpkin recipe this time of year. I think I've found the perfect one. I made cupcakes and omitted the chopped nuts.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
This Cream Cheese Frosting is very CREAMY! I suspect it's the 2 packages of cream cheese in it instead of the usual one. I like the fact that it only takes 2 cups of powdered sugar too. My husband said the cream cheese flavor really comes through. I will make this again when I need a Cream Cheese Frostin.

Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
This is a really great P-nut butter frosting because of it's creamy texture. I think adding cream is what makes this one a keeper. I've tried others, but this one is the best so far. Drizzling fudge sauce on top and sprinkling with Kosher Salt took it over the top. They were given to my wonderful neighbor for mowing my lawn! His review; FANTASTIC Candice. Will you please make me some more. LOL!

Creamy Banana Soft Serve

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
This is perfect! I used Dutch Cocoa Powder gifted to me by Marianne. I also added in the Peanut Butter. Then scooped into a freezer container for 1 hour so it would roll nicely into an ice cream scoop. Placed in a Sunday dish and topped with chopped Almonds. I have 3 words for this recipe: Dee-lish-us!!! Just perfect for dessert or snack. A very rich and satisfying recipe using NO dairy what-so-ever. You'd never know, it's that creamy.

Banana Split Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
This is a WONDERFUL recipe and I cannot wait to make with the GrandGals. So easy and so rich. I love that no frosting is needed. I eat way too much! I will tweak as others have mentioned in previous reviews, but this recipe stands EXCELLENT on it's own. My neighbor LOVED them too. In fact, between him, DH and myself, they're all gone!

Oatmeal Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
This recipe is sooooo yummy, although it really is more like a muffin than a cupcake. (Am I back to the different between a muffin and cupcake?) No matter, these are going into my regular Muffin rotation file. They are healthy too using only 1/2 cup sugar and 3/4 cup honey. I love to cook using local honey because of my alergies. So, this is a "for sure" keeper! Also, I had to use extreme control because I wanted to add nuts, but I didn't and they were wonderful. I may add nuts the next, I may not. GREAT muffin recipe! Thank you Louise!
