This is the perfect Sweet Potato Pie recipe--it tastes just like Mom used to make! I've made it several times and shared it with my sisters. We all love it!

Diana's Hawaiian Bread Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
These rolls were very good. I followed the recipe as stated except that I replaced some of the white flour with one cup of whole wheat flour. I omitted the lemon extract and used honey instead of molasses. I only added 1/2 tsp. of vanilla and I used butter instead of shortening. I made 27 dinner rolls instead of 12. Will definitely be making these again with the modifications.

Grandma's Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
Great recipe! Great cake! It was dense as pound cake should be, but not heavy at all. This was my first attempt at making a pound cake and it came out perfect! I used three sticks of butter, egg substitute, fat free sour cream, omitted the mace, used the zest and juice of one lemon, 1 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract, and 1/4 tsp. of almond extract. I followed the advice of other viewers and beat the sugar and butter for seven minutes. I mixed for one minute after the addition of each egg. I folded in the flour mixture and sour cream and I was very careful not to over work the batter, so that the cake would not be tough. This is a definite keeper! Thanks for sharing.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
These were really good and enjoyed by all! I used a combination of Jack and Cheddar cheeses along with the Parmesan, because that is what I had on hand. Also added garlic, a small amount of finely chopped bell pepper, black pepper,and seasoned salt. This was served for dinner with spaghetti, prego, and extra mushrooms. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing.

Funnel Cakes IV

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2007
These came out a whole lot better than they did the first time I made them. I added a little nutmeg, vanilla extract, an extra tsp. of sugar, and more milk than the recipe called for. A zip lock bag was used to swirl the batter into the hot oil. I also scaled the recipe down to four servings and topped each with confectioner's sugar and cherry pie filling. Tasted great!

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
This is the absolute best recipe for key lime pie! I followed the recipe exactly as written and it was perfect! The flavor and texture was so smooth and not harsh like most other recipes. I made a ginger snap crust, which complimented the lime flavor very nicely. Each slice was topped with a dollop of the Easy Whipped Cream recipe from this site. This is a keeper.

Easy Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
I ended up making this, because my local grocery store was out of cool whip. This was really easy to make. I made the sour cream by adding a half tbsp. of vinegar to a half cup of whipping cream. My standing mixer, fitted with a wire wisk attachment, was used to whip this up in less than two minutes. The taste and texture was great! Don't think I'll be going back to using Cool Whip again :) Thanks for sharing.

Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
This recipe is a definite keeper! I made a few minor changes to the recipe by replacing some of the oil with 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce. I also used a bundt pan. For the glaze I used passion fruit juice, because I didn't have any orange juice on hand. We all loved this bread. Will definitely be making it again. In response to jhugs in the UK, butter extract is actually butter flavoring. You may find it marketed in the UK as butter essence. Hope this helps.

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
These were so good! I used my bread machine to make the dough. I took the advice of a few others and added 1 tsp. nutmeg and vanilla extract to the dough. I used the microwave to make the glaze. Will make these again for sure!

Shirley's Maine Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
This recipe was good after I made some changes to suit my taste. I used a 28oz. can of whole baby clams, 4 potatoes, a 14 1/2 oz. can of evaporated milk, 1 cup of water, and I thickened it with a little flour. I used turkey bacon, but the bacon flavor was strong, so I will cut down on it and use just 9 slices instead of 12 next time. I felt the recipe could use more seasoning, so I added garlic, parsley, thyme, and chicken bouillon. I served it with hot dinner rolls and the family enjoyed it. Will make it again.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
Great recipe! Banana pudding was my favorite dessert as a child growing up. Mom would cook her custard made from milk, egg yolks, flour, sugar, and vanilla extract. The meringue, made of whipped egg whites, a little cream of tartar and sugar would be spread on top before the pudding was baked in the oven. This recipe is simpler, in my opinion. I was able to cut down on some of the calories by using lite cool whip topping, light cream cheese, and skim milk. I used more bananas than the recipe called for. This was simple to make, as I followed one reviewer's advice and used a blender to mix the cream cheese and condensed milk, which was at room temperature, first. I then added the milk, vanilla, and instant vanilla pudding. Next, I transferred the mixture to a bowl and folded in the cool whip topping. I find it helps to allow the pudding to sit a little before assembling the layers, so that it has a chance to set up without being too runny. After completely assembling the layers, I sprinkled five or six crushed vanilla waffers over the top before chilling it in the fridge.

Crackle Top Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
These were delicious!!! I only rated them a four, because I don't believe they would have came out nearly as good if I didn't substitute butter for the oil. I added about 1/4 tsp. more ginger and baked them for 12 minutes. The flavor was great and they were soft on the inside. I will surely be making these again.

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
After reading reviews of these being too sweet and the dough not forming properly, I made some changes to the original recipe and they came out really good in the end. I added a few drops of water to the crust ingredients, which allowed it to form a dough. For the filling I also used 2/3 cup light corn syrup, a little less than one cup of brown sugar, and an ounce of unsweetened chocolate. Since I didn't have all of the pecans on hand, I used a mixture of walnuts and almonds along with the pecans. The pan size requested in the recipe should have been slightly bigger, as there was a small amount of crust and filling that remained, which I ended up throwing away.

Banana Bread VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
This had good flavor, but I wasn't crazy about the texture. It was very dense and it didn't rise enough. I don't know if omitting the shortening and eggs was the cause. I used yogurt instead of shortening and added a small amount of coconut. Don't think I'll be making this again.

Apple Dumplings II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
These were great!!! I took the advice of the other reviewers and used small apples. I microwaved the peeled and cored apples for about two to three minutes and put about one tsp. of raisins in the core of each apple. The dough was just the right amount for four small apples with just enough scraps left over for cut-outs. I baked the dumplings in the syrup, which I made with brown sugar and thickened with one tsp. of arrow root and one tsp. of water. The pan I used was large enough to keep the syrup at the base of the dumplings. I basted the dumplings with the sauce while they baked and served them with ice cream. We all loved them! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
