Chocolate Covered Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
These are good, but please note that I cut the sugar in HALF and the recipe made about 30 good sized eggs. I couldn't bear the idea of making them any sweeter, and the choice was a good one. I added 1 cup of PB to the dough and made all PB eggs. They are truly delicious, and cutting back on the sugar didn't harm them a bit. Be sure to use actual candy coating (almond bark?) because otherwise, they won't be easy to coat. Also, I placed my eggs in the freezer before coating (for two days because I didn't get to coating them for awhile!) and frozen eggs are MUCH easier to coat.

Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Amazing. This is a sexy little recipe that my husband adores! I used Oreos with white chocolate....delicious. The dipping process is a bit precarious; I found that toothpicks help. Also, don't make the balls too big; one-inch is sufficient. Otherwise, they're very difficult to work with.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I made this for my mother and her fiance, and her fiance was tripping over himself exclaiming how good it was. At first I thought he was buttering me up, but my husband assured me that the dish was worthy of the praise. Whoever suggested nutmeg is spot on; it's a delicious, authentic addition. Also, don't bother boiling the noodles; just add an additional 1/2 cup water to the pan after stacking up the layers. Additionally, I use garlic salt instead of regular salt which is a minor but delicious addition.

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
While the cake is delicious, it takes WAY too much time for me. Between the sifting and beating, it took me quite some time to put this together, which is the challenge of a white cake, I suppose. I'll stick with my dense, dark chocolate cakes from now on...less work!

Overnight Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Delicious! The only change I made is to use whole wheat flour (only because that's what I typically use for baking). It's delicious! My husband, who never had "real" coffee cake before (only Entenmann's!), loved it! I took it to a brunch today and it was a big hit.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
My husband said, "I'd pay money for this." I did change a few things: Instead of beef broth, I used condensed golden mushroom soup mixed with water, and I added the mushrooms with the onion. I also used 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 cream cheese. I'm not a beef eater, so I don't know what this dish was supposed to taste like, but according to my husband, it's spot on.

Baby BLT

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
Labor intensive, but delicious. When prepping the tomatoes, use the tip of your knife to cut between the skin and the guts of the tomato. I then used the opposite end of a baby spoon to scoop out the guts. If you don't have babies in the house, any thin metal utensil should do. I changed the mix a bit by combining 1/4 C cream cheese, 1/4 C sour cream, and 2 T of mayo, which put the flavor spot on; it wasn't too oily, but I could still taste the mayo. Very good appetizer!! I also stuffed two larger tomatoes with the filling I had left over, and I gave them to my new neighbors for lunch. Thus, this recipe could easily move from "appetizer" to "lunch."

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
These are good, but I did make some modifications. I cut the butter down to 1/2 cup, and melted the PB and butter together. I used graham cracker crumbs that were already crushed (pie crust crumbs). Why anyone would crush their own graham crackers for this recipe, I do not know. =) This modification provided an actual crust, which was very good. I also used milk chocolate because that's what I like. Very tasty!

Acapulco Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
To quote from my husband, "I love it." I added sour cream to make a sauce, and it was a great choice. I also added some "Pennsylvania Jack" cheese during the last three minutes of cooking. PA Jack is similar to mozzarella, so adding mozzarella would work well also. Oh, and my husband informed me that to spice this recipe up even more, I can add the jalepenos at the end of the cooking time, without sauteeing them. That would be too hot for me, but if you like spice, you might consider doing that. Overall, this is a recipe I'll make again.

Gazpacho II

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
I don't use tomato juice because I don't like it, so I just put two tomatoes in the food processor with the other ingredients as noted, then chopped the other two. I enjoyed this dish a great deal and will take the left-overs for lunch tomorrow! I served it with some corn on the cob.

Raspberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
The flavor is good. Be warned, though, that with about 20 minutes of cooking time left, I had to pull it out and cover the edges with foil to prevent the crust from becoming too done. In addition, I used a few Tbs of flour instead of corn starch (I'm just not thrilled with CS), and it did come out a bit soupy. However, we enjoyed it because we served it over ice cream; it was like raspberry topping with crust bits. Very flavorful, and I'll make it again!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
I used the butter, no oil (I'm not sure of the logic behind the replacement). These were delicious! I made mini-muffins, and the batter made exactly 24. I did add some cinnamon to the batter, which is a nice touch! Definitely a keeper.

Strawberry Soup II

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Everyone loved this in my house. The only change I would make would be to cut down on the sugar; it was waaaaay too sweet for us. In addition, I plan to try this with my own whipped topping. I'm not thrilled with the hydrogenated oil in store-bought whipped topping, so I'd be interested to see how it would work with my own whipped cream. I think it would be fine, given the consistency of the final product. Overall, this is a fine summer dish. Very refreshing!

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Very good recipe. I ended up using chocolate left over from last night's chocolate fondue, and it worked out perfectly. Also, I use whole wheat flour for nearly all of my baking, and it lends itself well to this recipe. It's a little grittier, but that's how I like it, honestly. So if you're down with the whole wheat, go ahead and use it here! Also, I like that these brownies are not too sweet. I'll definitely make them again!
