Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
These mashed potatoes were good. What I liked best was making them ahead of time & keeping them warm in the slow cooker. Great idea!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
This recipe was fantastic! I was concerned it would be too sweet but it wasn't. I did use the Duncan Hines cake mix as recommended by other reviewers. I also used 2 boxes of vanilla because my grocery store didn't have butterscotch (I would love to try the butterscotch version!). I also wasn't sure why an entire cup of oil was necessary so I used 1/4 cup oil & 3/4 unsweetened applesauce (as recommended by others). I threw this together in 5 minutes on Thanksgiving morning. We had warm, fresh coffee cake with very little work. I am going to keep the ingredients for this on hand all of the time! So good & so easy. Thanks so much for the recipe!!! Oh - I also should mention that the texture of this cake was very custardy which we really liked. I was just surprised (I shouldn't have been with the pudding & eggs in there). When i cut into it, I thought it wasn't finished, but it was.

Hearty Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2013
Followed the advice of other reviewers. Added broccoli to the casserole (this really added great flavor & color - highly recommended). As recommended by another reviewer, for the sauce I chopped up one small onion & also added 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp cayenne, & 1 cup of mexican cheese blend. Use the rest of the bag of cheese over the top of the casserole. This was delicious!!! What a great way to use up all of that left over ham. I also skipped the parsley because I didn't have any.

Beef Lo Mein

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
This was really good. I didn't do the noodles. I made it for the kids & my son prefers rice, so I made it as a stir fry and served it over rice. I used a bag of stir fry veggies from the store. It was probably closer to 2 cups than 4. I also used chicken tenders rather than steak. So this is a very forgiving recipe. It was really good! The sauce is awesome. I don't know what "asian chile paste with garlic" is so I used sirracha (about 1/2 Tbsp) and cut back on the oyster sauce (1/2 - 3/4 Tbsp) - since it was for the kids. The sauce is really good. Very flavorful. It was a hit! I'll definitely be making this again (and probably I'll end up making it on a regular basis). Look forward to trying it with noodles - but I'd certainly double the sauce if I do.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
This was delicious! Rave reviews. Definitely not too sweet. I used 1.5 loaves of homemade italian bread. Followed the recipe. Also used whole milk - that probably makes a difference in how much sugar taste comes through.

Banana Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
This was awesome! We had it last night with Christmas dinner and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all. I used 2 large bananas - one on the bottom, topped with half the pudding, another layer of banana, and then the rest of the pudding. Whole thing topped with homemade whipped cream - whipping cream, 3 Tbsp powdered sugar, and 1 tsp of vanilla beaten until it held it's peaks. Delicious! I also used a different preparation technique. I put all of the ingredients except for the vanilla into a large microwave safe bowl and stirred until they were well combined. Then I microwaved it for one minute and pulled it out and whisked it for a few seconds. I repeated that process until my pudding thickened up (about 7 minutes). Incorporated the vanilla at the end. Came out beautifully. Thanks for the recipe! My husband may have a new favorite pie.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
Very good! Thanks for the recipe. I used ground turkey bc that's what I had on hand. Cooked it in a skillet with a little oil and just shy of 2 Tbsp taco seasoning. Mixed salsa in with chicken and mixed the soups into the rice. Turned out great. Thanks again!

Chocolate Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
First of all - delicious! Thank you so much for sharing. I made a few changes based on previous reviews. I used 4 yolks, 1/4 cup cornstarch (which is 4 Tbsp), and I added 1 Tbsp of coffee because it was morning and I had it. The biggest change I made is I made this in the microwave! It is so easy - don't be scared to try it. (got the idea from a review of coconut cream pie on this site). I followed the directions but mixed everything in a microwave safe bowl. Once it was time to cook it, I put it in the microwave for 1 minute increments, whisking after each. I repeated the process until the filling thickened (about 12 minutes for me, but I have a small microwave - should be 8-10). This is much easier than standing at the stove constantly stirring. For my topping, I made my own whipped cream but I stablized it so it'd last longer. I sprinkled 1 tsp unflavored gelatin over 1 Tbsp cold water. Microwaved it for 30 seconds. Meanwhile, I poured 1 pint of whipping cream into bowl of mixer. Whipped starting at low moving gradually to high speed. Added gelatin, 1 tsp vanilla, and 3 Tbsp powdered sugar. Whipped until cream held peaks. (Don't overwhip or the cream will curdle). Best chocolate cream pie ever (and so easy,too!).

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
I did the same substitutions as most others - coconut milk and half and half, cornstarch in place of flour. I also used an entire package of frozen coconut and didn't even bother with toasted coconut on top. I (nervously) attempted the microwave method. It worked beautifully! It was way easier than standing at the stove for half and hour whisking continously - which with a 1 year old helper, just wasn't an option. For the topping, I made my own whipped cream, but I stabilized it to make it last longer. I put a tablespoon of cold water into a small microwave safe bowl and sprinkled 1 teaspoon of unflavored gelatin over it. I let it stand for about a minute. Then I popped it into the microwave for 30 seconds. It came out all clear and melty and ready to go. Then I whipped my cream in my stand mixer. About 1/2 way through I added my 3 Tbsp powdered sugar, my gelatin, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Continued to whip until the whipped cream held its peaks. Delicious (and stable) whipped cream!

I made a gluten free variation, but these are perhaps the best cupcakes I have ever eaten. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
OMG this is good! I put it the cupcakes with the cookie dough in the middle (from this site). Absolutely delicious pairing. This frosting is creamy and chocolatey. My new go to icing. Thanks! (I used 3 Tbsp whole milk, by the way).

This is my husband's favorite! I make my own chili (simple turkey chili from this site- with some veggies added in an attempt at healthiness). Thanks for the recipe :)

Magic "Granola" Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Wow! These were so good and so easy. I used about 1 cup choc chips (semi-sweet), 1 cup butterscotch chips, 3/4 cup coconut, and about 1.5 cups of salted, roasted cashews. I used the 7 seven layer bar as my inspiration and that is what they taste like. I baked them for 20 minutes and I have chewy, delicious bars that taste like a cookie or a candy bar but are healthier (at least a bit)! Thanks for the recipe. I can't wait to try different combos.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Delicious! I added back in some of the seeds for some spice. It worked a little too well. Next time I'll add less or use pepper jack. Overall, really good, restaurant quality poppers. Definitely worth the time.
