Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
These cookies are awesome! I followed the reciped exactly, but doubled it. I ended up with close to 90 cookies, and I froze some for later. They are a cross between chocolate chip cookies and brownies. I can't stay out of them! Thanks for listing it. EDITED TO ADD: These cookies don't keep for too long, so eat them within 2-3 days. I don't recommend freezing them because they really harden quickly once thawed (like in 1-2 days). They're awesome when fresh, though!!!

Beefy Cheesy Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
Just got done eating this for dinner and my husband and I both agree that it is very tasty. I added some Velveeta cheese and a little bit of leftover shredded sharp cheddar, and left out maybe one or two of the American cheese slices. What's weird is my husband and I both really like Hamburger Helper but I won't buy it anymore because of the trans fat in it (I try to avoid most foods with hyrdogenated oils). So this, to us, was like Hamburger Helper, only better. Thanks for the easy, quick, and yummy recipe!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Very moist and delicious! I used extra bananas just because I had a lot of overripe ones (used about 4 total). I baked at 325 degrees for roughly 60-70 minutes. It was late at night and I didn't feel like baking at a lower temp for even longer, then waiting while it sat in the freezer. So I skipped the freezer step and this cake still turned out very moist and yummy. And of course it's dense because it's a cake made from scratch. I wouldn't say it's banana bread-like, but it's surely not like a boxed cake in texture. I think it's excellent and will definitely make again! Thanks for recipe!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
Absolutely delicious! First time I ever made carrot cake and I love it! I've only ever eaten carrot cake once before but don't remember liking it like I do this one. The frosting is perfect for this cake--I could sit and eat it straight from the mixing bowl with a big ole spoon. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Just made this gravy and it was WAY better than I expected! I made a meatloaf using the Lipton Onion Mushroom soup mix, except I use real pieces of ripped up bread instead of bread crumbs. Then I followed advice from others here and used beef broth for gravy rather than water and buillion. I cooked onions in butter, then made the roue by adding remainder of butter and the flour. I added the beef broth and pan drippings from the meatloaf to roue. I used some of the beef broth from the can and mixed with flour, then added that to gravy to further thicken it. I added a little Worchestershire, salt, pepper, and dash of onion powder. Wonderful! Will make with meatloaf from now on. Had hot meatloaf sandwiches and mashed potatoes and even my 7 year old loved it! Thank You!

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
You can't go wrong with this dessert. Even if you leave out the butter or the cream cheese this is still delicious. I've already used just pudding mix and cool whip and it was a hit. I did find this specific recipe to be the best so far so I didn't eliminate any ingredient. Again, still would've been very good even if I would've.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Making these now and the first batch is delecious! Baked for exactly 8 mins at 350. Uses half cup butter/half cup butter-flavored Crisco. Used 3/4 C white sugar and 3/4 C lightly packed brown sugar. Used a 10 oz pkg of Andes mint baking pieces and about a cup of semisweet chocolate chips. Will be making these again for Christmas! Thanks!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
Delicious! I doubled the recipe, made four loaves, and froze 2. I used cinnamon applesauce in place of the oil and it worked out perfectly. I omitted the nuts, but did add a crumb topping made of oats, brown sugar, and butter. Will use this recipe again for sure!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
Very yummy. I followed this recipe exactly, and I agree that these are more cake-like than brownies. Had this been titled "Zucchini Cake", it would be more accurate. As a chocolate cake, it is definitely rich, chocolately, moist, and tasty! I wonder if brown sugar in place of the white sugar would make these more brownie-like?

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
Good recipe. Not an overpowering flavor of sausage, which I am glad. Used shredded sharp cheddar (2 cups) plus some cubes of Velveeta cheese I had left over. I topped the casserole with yet some more cheddar cheese (I LOVE cheese)before putting in the oven. I had prepared this ahead of time, but even when cold from the fridge it only took about 30 minutes to heat thorougly in oven. Will make again!

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Very good. I used vanilla extract rather than almond because a lot of people in my family don't like almond. I used milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips. I had doubled this recipe and yes, the dough is greasy. But it's peanut butter...what do you expect? I would make these again. thanks!

Scallop Scampi

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
Delicious! Added fresh mushrooms; thickened the sauce with a little flour mixed with a little milk; used Parmesan and Swiss cheeses, and olive oil and butter rather than margarine. Also used angel hair pasta. I used extra butter and olive oil to be sure to have enough sauce, and I skipped chicken broth and added 2 chicken boullion cubes to the butter/oil/wine mix. This is a restaurant-quality dinner! And I'm talking a decent restaurant. I think it's better than anything I've ever eaten at Olive Garden. My 9 yr old son told me to make it every day he loved it so much! Be sure to not overcook the scallops. As someone else said, you don't need to boil them but rather sautee them.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
This frosting is delicious! I halved the recipe, except for the vanilla extract and milk (used the full tsp of vanilla and almost a whole cup of milk with the other ingredients halved). I sifted the sugar and cocoa together as another reviewer suggested. I used this to frost a regular-sized single layer yellow cake (9x13) and I still had some left over. I may use boxed cake mixes at times, but I refuse to use the canned frosting. To me that stuff is just nasty. But this frosting recipe is a keeper that helps makes any cake taste like "from scratch"! Thanks Amy! And btw, don't rate a recipe based on "a bit too much butter I thought", especially when you agree that it's tasty. You saw the amount of butter the recipe calls for BEFORE you made it. If it bothered you then you shouldn't have made it to begin with. :)

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
This was absolutely delicious! My 6-yr-old son even loved it. I cooked bacon on the stove (4 or 5 slices), set the bacon aside, and then cooked the chicken and garlic in the bacon grease. I then sauteed the fresh spinach (one bag) and fresh mushrooms (sliced portabello) in the chicken and bacon fat. It tasted like something from a fancy restaurant. I served over angel hair pasta with french bread and salad. I can't wait to make it again. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!

Marble Squares I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
I was not impressed with these. Ten minutes was too long for me to wait to swirl the chips because it was already setting. I found these rather dry. I'm giving them three stars though because maybe I did something wrong along the way. The taste itself wasn't bad--they were just a little too dry for my liking.
