I'm glad I read the reviews on this before I made them. The one thing that was lacking for me, was the size pan to bake them in. I used an 11 X 17 baking sheet, but they were way too thick. I liked the taste, so I will make them again, but will use a larger baking pan. I added coconut to the oat mixture and spread half with milk chocolate chips and...

I was making peach jam and had a lot of extra peaches so I decided to try this recipe. I have been looking for a good cobbler recipe for awhile now. This is a keeper. I followed the recipe as written and will make it again. The topping had a nice crunch to it, you can taste the butter. I think I may add a little cinnamon next time, but it was sti"

This is a great waffle! I didn't change anything, except I am glad I doubled it. It was enough for 4.
Who would have thought corn starch in a waffle recipe. Well, it works! This is a keeper."

Anne made this look so easy on the video and on tv. I followed the recipe carefully, however I think I didn't stir quickly enough, so it looked kind of like scrambled eggs. I blame it totallly on me, not the recipe. I ate it but it just did'n
t have that creamy texture. I may try it again sometime.""

I made the mistake of adding chicken breasts with the thighs, forgetting that dark meat takes longer to cook, so my breasts were dry, thighs were great! I also should have made the glaze earlier, it was too hot and hadn't thickened up, so after simmering for 15 minutes, take it off the heat and let it sit. I ended up putting the chicken under the...

I really wanted to like this and I did, partly. I followed the recipe exactly. I was concerned from the start that it only called for 3 cups of broth for the amount of rice and orzo. Sure enough after the 14 minutes I checked and all the liquid was gone, it was starting to burn at the bottom and the rice wasn't done. I thought maybe the zucchini would...

This is the second time I made this.I took others advice and only used 1 1/2 cups sugar. I got a little confused about adding the butter to the flour mixture and it said to mix until just coated. I then added the other ingredients and of course the batter had lumps of butter in it. I didn't want to over beat so I left the lumps there. Anyone else...

This was delicious! I didn't add the bacon or potato chips, because it was fattening enough as it was. I also added a cup of gruyere cheese and the rest cheddar. It is the best comfort food!

I have been making my mom's Banana Bread for years now and thought it was good, until I tried this recipe. This is the best banana bread I have ever had! It is very moist, and has a rich butter flavor. The sour cream is the key. I didn't add nuts because I made it for a party and I find that a lot of people don't like nuts. I made a regular loaf pan...

I was a little disappointed on how these turned out. I used a small round cookie cutter, and they spread out and flattened out as they cooled. I chilled the dough over night. I also added about 1/2 tsp of grated nutmeg and was glad I did. The nutmeg really gave them good flavor. I made these for special occasion and they didn't look appetizing.
