Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
Although the recipe was very good I have to say it wasn't as good as I thought it would be based on the reviews. For years I have been baking the "Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie" recipe from Southern Living and have always received many, many requests from family and friends to bake these cookies. When comparing the two recipes I prefer the Southern Living recipe since it is noticeably tastier, chewy on the inside and moister too. Don't get me wrong- this recipe is good (that's why I gave it 4 stars!!!)- but not the best!

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
I did make this pie for Thanksgiving and it was easy to follow but way too sweet! I would cut back on the sugar next time! Instead of using a 1/2 cup sugar to coat the apples I might use just a 1/4 instead.

Simmer Family Turkey Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
It was very similar to Stove Top but I did improvise by adding a bit more poultry seasoning, turkey broth (since it was too dry) salt and pepper too was added to this traditional dish. If you need a basic and easy "go to" recipe for stuffing this is the one!

Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
This pie is for chocolate lovers!I have made this pie numerous times and my family really loves it. Small slices are advised since it's so rich. One very important ingredient that is missing and is key in the pie is Saigon Cinnamon. I notice this recipe doesn't include it but you will notice a difference. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon on the pie crust prior to filling it.Stir in remaining teaspoon of Saigon cinnamon with sugar and vanilla. It's delicious and you will be glad you added the cinnamon as it takes this pie to the "gourmet". Also everyone's preference to sweet can be different but I (nor my family) felt that the 1/4 cup of powdered sugar made it over the top. I have made it that way for years and have served it to family and friends and have only heard rave reviews!

Kay Dee's Recipe for Potato Latkes

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
This recipe was great! My family really enjoyed it. The key here is to remove the excess moisture from the potato patties. I did make 3 inch patties but squeezed as much moisture as you can out of the patty over the sink and then placed it in the pan. If you don't you will have soggy patties that fall apart so this is very important! The patties cook fairly quick and are very tasty.The recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of salt but could use a bit more. Other than that it was easy to prepare and worth the steps needed to make these patties!

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
My search for an easy and no-fail frosting for my sugar cut-out cookies has just ended! I have tried many frosting recipes for my cut out cookies but have never really been quite satisfied with the outcome of the recipes. This was a great frosting recipe. I highly recommend this recipe for your cut-out cookies. The frosting hardens to a smooth sheen and if you add food coloring then it looks really professional. On a personal note I did not add the vanilla flavoring since I did not want to compete with the flavor of the sugar cookie. I did end up following the suggestion of another reviewer and used cream and milk combined. You will need more than two tablespoons of milk and/or cream as it was not enough.

Apple Crisp with Oat Topping

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
I tried this recipe because it looked easy and tasty. You will not be disappointed. It was delicious and everyone in my family loved it! I did not have old fashioned oats but the one minute oats worked just fine. I did not have a square 9 inch pan but my square 8 inch pan worked just as good. Thanks for this great no-fail recipe!

Delectable Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
Great marinade works with beef too! No sesame seeds but it didn't really matter. My family loves it and always asks me to use this marinade for our meat. I followed the recipe but for no sesame seeds and no canola oil so I used olive oil. Would recommend again and again!

Sarah's Easy Shredded Chicken Taco Filling

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
This is a great recipe but I did modify a bit. I doubled the recipe and added 1 teaspoon of minced garlic and 1/2 tsp. of cumin and 1/2 tsp. of chili powder. I also substituted the vegetable oil with chicken broth just to save on some calories! The key to this easy dish is the simmering of the shredded chicken. Add a few minutes when simmering it allows the chicken to really absorb the flavor too.

This was an easy recipe to follow. A little bland though and my family did not care for the tuna casserole.

Brunch Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I thought this was a great recipe. I did take a few suggestions and spiced it up by using hot green peppers. I also made sure the half and half covered the flour tortillas. This is just like when you make the regular mexican enchiladas and the sauce must cover the tortillas or you will have hardened edges. The same concept applies to this brunch enchilada recipe. The liquid mixture must cover and/or saturate the flour tortillas prior to baking the dish. And no I did not use more than 2 cups of the half and half because that's all I had on hand. Everyone in my MIT prayer group really loved this recipe and asked for it too.

Nanna's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
I gave this banana bread recipe 5 stars because it is the best one I've ever made. The banana bread consistently comes out moist unlike other recipes I've tried. My family loves it and I have made it numerous times for ourselves and potlucks. The only ingredient I altered was using Saigon cinnamon instead of regular cinnamon. This was delicious!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
This is an excellent recipe but I did follow a few tips. I did put in less cabbage as I felt the first time I made it there was just too much cabbage in it. I put in a 1/2 cabbage instead of the whole. Another suggestion I tried was adding ground turkey meat. That really made it tasty too. Also, I added zucchini instead of green beans. And just to give it a kick I added about a teaspoon of chopped garlic My husband loved this soup! Thanks to everyone for their helpful tips. Most especially to all the cooks out there who share their incredible recipes!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
Overall this recipe was pretty easy to follow but I did read the other reviewers suggestions like having all your ingredients lined up and ready to go. Also, using my good steel calphalon pan. I didn't use a candy thermometer but I followed the directions carefully. On another note, I did confirm that this recipe actually originated from the DIAMOND WALNUT brand. It's the exact recipe and it's very old too. THANK YOU!

Basic Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
This was a pretty good recipe as far as my family was concerned! I did take some of the suggestions I read and incorporated it into the recipe. I did cook onion and bell pepper with the ground beef. Also, I added an about a 1/3 of a jar of spaghetti sauce in addition to the 16 oz. jar it called for.

King Ranch Chicken Casserole III

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I made this tasty dish for my family and everyone loved it! I did follow some suggestions. I used one cup of chicken broth instead of 2 as I didn't want a "soupy" casserole. Also, I did not cover with foil either. In addition I sauteed the onion and bell pepper prior to mixing. One more thing, I mixed the chili powder and added one teaspoon of cumin powder with the soup mix. I don't like salty so I omitted the garlic salt and just added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to the soup mix too. If you have children who don't like spicy foods you can reduce the chili powder. However, the can of diced tomatoes and green chili peppers will also add to the spiciness of the dish.
