Great basic waffle recipe. I added some vanilla and fruit - the kids loved them - nice and fluffy!

Lisa's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Very moist - very quick. While I usually avoid recipes that involve just doctoring up a cake mix this one had a little something more to it. It evoked more of a home made flavor and I used to to prepare an emergency dessert for a family outing. It was gobbled up!! Since I am famous for my scratch desserts no one suspected there was a cake mix involved - it was THAT good! I will keep it (secretly!) in my recipe box to use again!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
OK I love this recipe. It is super creamy and melts in your mouth. It almost has the consistency of very soft caramels! I adjusted the recipe based on other peoples recommendations by using 1 tablespoon butter instead of 1/4 cup. I cooked it for 7 minutes instead of 5. I used melted marshmallows instead of marshmallow fluff because it was all I had. I am going to try it with the fluff tomorrow when I can get to the store - I will update this review then! My son said he thought the vanilla was a bit strong but I use real vanilla and not the imitation so that may have been why. I will cut it to 1/2 teaspoon and see if that helps. Personally though I like the vanilla flavor! One suggestion - have your pan ready as this stuff sets up fast!

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
So good! Easy to make even with the long list of ingredients. I made a huge pot and it disappeared fast. Make sure to put the shred cheese on top - it is a great touch! As good as it is the first day it is even better the next day - if you manage to have any left!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
Wonderful!! To make it even better use pecans instead of walnuts and you get a praline like top! Be carefule not to use too big a pan or there wont be enough batter to spread two layers. I always double the recipe and use a smaller pan or a bundt pan for that layered look.

King Ranch Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
It always dissapears quickly! I always use my own home made tortilla chips and precook the chicken breasts in the oven. That way it is so quick and easy to toss together!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
OK when I went to make these my waffle iron broke, but I had several hungry mouths to feed!!! So I quickly thinned the batter a tad with some milk and made pancakes instead! They were light and fluffy and the flavor was fantastic! lol! I am assuming that if I had been able to make them as waffles the flavor would have been just as good! :)

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
All I can say is WOW! I made this at my cafe one day for a quick breakfast special. One lady took a bite, then another, and ran back to me and said, "This is the best thing I have even put in my mouth!" After an awkward pause I just smiled and said, "thank you!" I did do two things differently - first I had leftover ham I wanted to use so I subbed that for the bacon. Second I used a three cheese mix instead of all cheddar. I also topped it with a bit of cheddar half way through cooking. It is a regular on my menu now! :)

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
I put too manuy apples in I think because I ended up with apple cobbler instead of crisp! lol! But the taste was fantastic. I cored and cubed the apples and left the skins on. I used gala and granny smith. Next time I will use less apples and maybe leave out the water - it didnt need it with the extra apples. I was very pleased with the results though - if a failure is this good imagine how tasty the real thing is!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
TO DIE FOR! I just love the fact that there is no corn syrup! I made a double batch and it filled my deep dish 9 inch glass pie pan perfectly. I followed the suggestions to cook at 350 for 15 then 300 for 55 - it wrked perfectly! I also added more nuts on top which may not have been necessary as the nuts sort of float to the top as it bakes. Make sure when you add the melted butter to the whipped eggs the butter has cooled or you will get scrambled eggs! I tempered the eggs and it was fine. I used the recipe for Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust instead of a store bought. Why go to the trouble to make scratch pie and use a store bought crust? the recipe is very easy and is my favorite.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I got raised eybrows from people who were expecting ham instead of sausage but its the same animal - right?? I used brats that I had gotten on sale. It turned out great and honestly would be even better with the ham which I will try next time!

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
May all time favorite recipe! I added more banans because people said it was a bit skimpy on them. I also added more cookies - I lined the bottom of the pan and the top too! This is a mega keeper - so light and fluffy it will make you eyes roll back in your head!

Fluffy Biscuit Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
This is my new go-to biscuit recipe!! Fast easy - wonderful! I doubled the recipe and rolled them out on a floured surface and used a 2" biscuit cutter it made about 12 biscuits. They puffed up really high! I served them with sausage gravy and they were wonderful. The only thing I would do different is add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the mix - but other than that it is my new favorite!!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
I was a bit skeptical about a creamy soup with rice in it but this was wonderful! The only thing I added was a bay leaf while cooking. I just love what the taste of bay does to chicken in soups. As written it is still five stars!

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
A real favorite at our house and restaurant! I added a few more spices (salt pepper garlic powder)and make sure I melt a bit of shredded cheddar on top when I serve it - otherwise it is a keeper just as it is!
