Cake Mix Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
these are FANTASTIC!! i substituted applesauce for the oil, and used 1 egg and 1 egg white (ran out of whole eggs). Added 2Tbs water as suggested. I made these with lemon cake mix, a few squirts of lemon juice, a handful of shredded coconut and a handful of white choco chips. These are so quick and easy- 1 bowl, 10 minutes... what more can you want?! I dropped these by the Tbs and got about 30 cookies. Can't wait to try this with other cake varieties... YUMMY!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
This was the perfect topping for both my vanilla and chocolate cupcakes. i made 3 or 4 different frosting recipes before this, and was unhappy with all of them- this was wonderful! not too sweet and no strange aftertaste. the only change i made was to substitute heavy cream for the milk. try this- you wont regret it!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
i have been so scared of fondant, and finally worked up the nerve to make it this afternoon- WOW! it was so much easier than i expected! i added wilton gel coloring to the melted marshmallow and water mixture which made it so easy to tint. i added as much sugar as possible with a wooden spoon, then dumped the mass on my sugared countertop, greased my hands with crisco, and kneaded in sugar until the dough was stiff and no longer sticky. the only thing i'll do differenly next time is grase my bowl with crisco before melting the marshmallows- i forgot and its a pain to try to clean!! DONT BE AFRAID OF THIS RECIPE- try it and have fun!!

Gourmet Pretzel Rods

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
these are time consuming, but definitely worth it! i've been making chocolate covered pretzels for years, but somehow never thought to do caramel!! I melted the caramels and water in my slow cooker- while they were melting, i prepped a baking sheet with greased foil- i used a spoon to coat the pretzels, then popped the tray in the fridge for 15mins to cool before coating with chocolate- taste just like Twix! I did a few with just caramel, and pressed mini m&ms into them while the caramel was still hot- they are cute! so take the time to make these if you want to impress someone!

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
i cut my potatoes using one of those handheld fry-cutter tools... i found 450degrees to be the perfect temperature! i improvised on the spices, but stuck to the time/temp guidelines in this recipe- best baked fries i've ever made (and trust me, i've tried numerous recipes!)

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
this recipe is great!! i forgot to put in baking posder (oops) but they came out well anyway- i took the advice of other reviewers and added nutmeg, vanilla, and salt, and i used 1 whole egg instead of just whites. i also added some crushed glazed walnuts. i made these into muffins, topped with some brown sugar, and they were deeeelicious! 12 muffins, baked at 350 for 18 minutes!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
these look and taste amazing!! definitely start by adding only half of the containier of frosting, and slowly add more if necessary- i found that using just a little more than half of the container was perfect to give the balls a more "cake-y" consistency (insteasd of too gooey). i waited for the cake to cool before crumbling and mixing, then refrigerated the formed balls for about 2 hours. i melted a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips mixed with 2Tbs oil for dipping. then i drizzled melted white chocolate over the tops with a fork for a pretty design. i refrigerated them for a few more hours before serving- nobody believed i made them myself! definitely will make these for a company new years luncheon next week. This recipe is worth a try!!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
i never ever would have thought i could make potato chips in the microwave! i was skeptical, but tried this recipe anyways - amazing! i admit, i burned a few batches, but the ones that worked tasted great! i put a piece of wax paper directly on the microwave turntable, sprayed with olive oil cooking spray, put down a single layer of potato, then sprayed again- i cannot say enough about how good these are! will definitely make again!

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
very good cookie- perfect texture after exactly 15min baking time. i didn't change a thing when i made these... but i might leave out about 1/4C of the flour next time, as they had a sort of flour-y aftertaste.

Awesome Honey Pecan Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
this was INCREDIBLE, after a little tweaking. i used 1 lb thin cut boneless pork loin, added seasoning salt and garlic onion spices to the flour (recipe does call for a little too much flour, but its ok if u adequately spice it and dont mind wasting a little...) browned it w 2tbs of butter- there wasnt anything left in the pan, so i added 2 more tbs butter, 1/3c chicken broth and some soy sauce as suggested to the honey and pecans. it was soooooo gooooood! definitely will make again!

PHILLY Blackforest Stuffed Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
These are absolutely delicious (and i dont even like cherries!) they are definitely better cold the next day, so try to make these ahead. here's what i did to get the perfect cupcake: *use devils food cake mix and add 1/4C strong coffee * spoon 1.5T of batter into the bottoms *spoon in 0.5T cream cheese mixture and spread it out into a flat circle with your fingers as best as possible *spoon in 1-2 cherries making sure they are directly on top of the creamcheese *cover with 1T or so of cake mix ... by taking these measures, i ended up with cupcakes exactly like in the picture, and they weren't too messy to eat. i had a 21oz can of cherry pie filling and it was more than enough to fill and have enough to put on top of 27 cupcakes. i used store-bought whipped white frosting (didnt have time to make my own, but i want to try with 'sturdy whipped cream frosting' from this site next time) i topped w/ 1 cherry and some mini choc. chips... PERFECTION!

Mini Sweet Potato Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
WOOOOOW! these were so so so delish! sweet potato pie is my boyfriend's favorite, and this recipe blew him away- he couldn't believe i made it! ... a few changes i made: instead of usind mini muffin tins, i used regular sized silicone muffin bake pans. make sure if you're using silicone, you put the pans on a baking sheet for more even cooking.the recipe yielded 12 pies this way, and there was about a cup of filling left over. Instead of puree-ing the sweet potato mixture in a blender, i hand whisked the ingredients together, and it came out great! i will definitely make this again for thanksgiving celebrations tomorrow and this weekend! TRY IT, YOU WONT BE SORRY!!!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
this was so rich and delicious- and i dont even like peanut butter! i wanted a quick dessert, and this was definitely it! i cut down to 1 8oz tub of cool whip and eyeballed about 1C of peanut butter and 1/4-1/2C of sugar. I used a store-bought 9" oreo crust and it was perfect proportions- i melted some chocolate chips and spread them in a thin layer over the crust before adding the pb mixture- yummy! topped with chopped reeses pieces and drizzled over with some more melted chocolate chips and melted peanut butter. i used 1/3 less fat cream cheese, reduced fat pb, fat free cool whip, splenda, and left out the milk. it did not taste 'off' from all the substitutions, and i was glad to be able to save some calories... try this recipe! it is soooooo easy and very rich- you won't need seconds :)

Grandma's Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
as is, i would give this recipe about 4 stars. i made it using only 4 eggs but following everything else for thanksgiving, and it was pretty good. its a 5+ star recipe with the following changes that i made for last night's xmas dinner: -use only 4 eggs -before adding the cans of corn, mix in 5Tbs of cornmeal (gives this a slightly stiffer consistency, but not as dense as the recipes using muffin mix)-add about 1tsp of vanilla -strain the can of whole kernel corn well to reduce water content -bake in a flat, glass casserole dish -before popping it in the oven, sprinkle a dash of cinnamon and some nutmeg on top. ot decrease fat content, i substituted margarine for butter, splenda for sugar, and used skim milk. with these changes, the recipe is amazing! got rave reviews from friends and family... yum!!! (edit- made this again for t-giving this year and totally forgot to add the butter! it came out amazing anyways, and i think i'll permanently cut out the butter from this recipe in the future!)

Working Mom's Hamentashen

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
easy and delicious! i used betty crocker moist yellow cake mix and high-quality raspberry preserves... tasted better than the ones from the bakery (and less crumbly). I added about 4Tbs of water instead of the 2 as written, cuz otherwise the dough didnt hold together. i sealed the corners with water before baking... SO GOOD!! but i only got about 18cookies, so i guess i'll have to roll them out thinner next time (and make 2 batches- these were gone so fast!)
