Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
These were terrific and loved by everyone who ate them. I added chocolate frosting. Delicious!

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
I added more cocoa and less sugar like others recommended. Turned out great and worked nicely with the peanut butter brownies from this site. Thanks!

Meatloaf with Sour Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
The adults in the family really liked the variation on traditional meatloaf. The kids, however, didn't love it. Ours was pretty soft and mushy on the inside, though, even though I followed the recipe exactly and used the meat thermometer to test if it was done. In the future I would add more crackers or bread crumbs or cut down on the salsa a little to "firm it up."

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
This was simple to make and I was shocked that my entire family loved it- even the kids! I used lowfat coconut milk (because it was on sale:)) and it still thickened up and was delicious. The only other ingredient I changed was to use thai red curry paste instead of curry powder, because I had it on hand. I used about a tbsp and a half instead of 2 tbsp because I was worried about it being too spicy for the kids, but it wasn't even close to being too spicy so I think I could have used the full amount. I simmered it uncovered for about one hour. Everyone loved it and asked for it to be added to the recipe list we pull from when making our menus each week. Thanks for the great recipe!

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Yum! Easy to make and thickened nicely once cooled. I did add extra cocoa per other reviewers' suggestions, but did everything else as stated. I probably added almost 2/3 cup of cocoa and it was delicious!

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
This was a nice change from traditional pasta sauce. I used canned diced tomatoes and added a tsp or so of sugar.

Orange Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
We liked the cake and especially found the crunch layer to be a nice touch. The frosting however didn't taste good to any of us. If I made again I'd use a different frosting recipe for sure!

Bunny Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
Fine sugar cookie. A little more crunchy, less soft consistency than some other recipes. We frosted ours and the orange flavor didn't come through at all. Basically I'd say a regular sugar cookie recipe, nothing extraordinary.

Golden Knots

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
These rolls had a good taste and were pretty easy to make, however mine spread out too much for me instead of puffing up. I did just try to make them into rolls instead of tying the knots (to save time,) but others said they did this and seemed happy with their results... I'm not sure if I did something wrong? Anyway, next time I'd bake them in muffin tins so the roll couldn't spread so much, and I bet I'd give them a higher rating then. Thanks for the recipe.

Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
These were a pretty good, different tasting cookie than our normal fare. Everyone in the family liked them well enough, although no one was raving about them. They spread out a bit more than I expected, so if I make again I think I'd chill the dough a little before baking.

Luck o' the Irish Brownie

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
Brownies were rich and delicious, but with added mint and chocolate topping they were too rich and sugary for half of my family's tastes. I liked them, but you can only eat small squares at a time.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
These were okay, but kind of salty and just not as exceptional as I thought they'd be based on other reviews. We won't make again.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
Delicious! Rich and creamy without needing cream or half and half or any of those ingredients often in cream soups that I don't keep on hand. My only suggestion is to cut down on the salt a little bit. Other than that, it was perfect! UPDATE: We've made this multiple times now, and we've found that omitting the extra salt completely, and cutting down the pepper to 3/4 tsp works best for our family (kids couldn't handle a whole tsp.)

Slow Cooker Tamale Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
We weren't very thrilled with this recipe. The casserole didn't taste like tamales and just wasn't that tasty. Everyone likes different things, I guess. We won't make again.

Cranberry Almond Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
This biscotti was good, but nothing exceptional. I followed the recipe exactly and think some modifications could be used to improve on it. Next time I'd definitely use almond extract in place of the vanilla, and I'd add some other flavor enhancers (maybe orange zest...) Anyways, good, but not amazing.

Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I found this recipe years ago when I was living on my own, now I'm married with three kids and we still use it so you know it must be good!:) We leave out the chili powder (the original recipe didn't call for it) and add more salsa and cheese. Pretty messy, but mmm...mmm...good!

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
I love this recipe! I have made these multiple times and they always come out light and delicious. I follow the ingredients exactly, except using the mini chocolate chips instead of regular sized ones. When filing the cups, only fill 1/4 of the way, use 1 tbsp of filling, and then cover filling just barely with more cake batter. If you do this you'll get about 30 cupcakes. I have over-filled them before and then they aren't as pretty. Thanks for the great recipe that both adults and kids love!

Mom's Secret Recipe Beef Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This stew was good and hearty. I followed the recipe except I added fresh mushrooms and frozen peas. I thought the stew was a little thin, so I thickened it up with a flour water mixture. My entire family enjoyed this meal. It wasn't anything extraordinary, but a good, family staple.
