Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2012
Followed the previous reveiwers suggestions but also switched out a cup of powdered sugar for 1 cup of splenda. Added a few mini chocolate chips I had left over as well. At first it looked like rocks in the mixer but quickly smoothed out. Wasn't exactly pourable but it went into the pan and smoothed out nicely. Everyone thought it tasted great and looked store made it was so pretty after I cut it. Definately wasn't dry or crumbly. Not my all time favorite fudge I have eaten but it was very close to it and very good. Will make again.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
These were pretty good, but not my favorite recipe for banana muffins. I do however love the topping and will use it on the recipe I usually use.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I used a loaf of sourdough bread I needed to use up and took this to a church potluck. It was very good! Next time I will make a sauce to put on top for a little extra WOW though.

Parmesan Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Do not make this recipe as written. I used half the amount of milk called for and it was still too runny. I ended up adding an entire 5lb bag of (small size) potatos. Also, the bacon becomes soggy and yuck if you have leftovers for later. It tasted pretty good inspite of all of this. Not sure if I will make it again though. (I didn't use the sage btw)

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Fantastic! I had broiled 2 whole chickens the day before, picked them, boiled the carcass' and made stock. Used the stock for this soup and 1/2 of a chicken cut up. To make it super quick I used Mexican seasoning mix to spice it and WOW! It could have used a bit more chicken, next time I might add some rice too and more corn. But WOW, it was really good with some cheese and tortilla chips on top!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Made exactly as described but discovered I should have added about 2 soup cans of water at the beginning. It was two rich and thick. It wasn't bad after adding additional water but by the next day, it was not good as left overs.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
I am torn on how many stars to rate this. I made the dough and had to add more flour than called for and still yet the dough was sticky. (it rained that day but still, have never had to add that much extra before on a rainy day) When I rolled it out to make the cinnamon rolls the dough easily tore. It was very delicate. Now I have made many, many cinnamon rolls before. I only switched to this recipe because my parents have a bread machine and my recipe was too big, so I know how the dough normally feels. Even after all that my parents and my brother loved the rolls. (I live far away and don't get to visit but once every year and a half so this is the first time I made rolls for them) But having my own recipe to compare them too, I don't think they match up, that's why only 4 stars.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
Made this for three adults and 4 kids. The kids liked it ok, the adults all loved it. Tastes like lasagna to me. I had two smaller pans I used and it completely filled both. We ate one and have the other leftover for tomorrow. The first one was a bit runny on the bottom, maybe I over buttered the pan or didn't cook it quite long enough, it was still good though. Will make again!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
UPDATE: This is a fantastic recipe. I always use more cream of chicken soup and make extra sauce. I also always put some of the sauce in the bottom of the pan so the enchiladas don't get crunchy on the bottom. Made this for my picky parents and brother and they loved it. Made it for my picky 5 year old (who until last month had never even eaten a hamburger) and he loves it! Spice it up a bit more than the recipe calls for though and make extra sauce to put on top. : )

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
This is the only recipe I use now for gingerbread men. It's easy, fast and delicious and kids love it. (See my photo for my giant gingerbread men.)

Green Punch

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I made this for my son's birthday/Halloween party in Oct. It was a huge hit, the color was fun and it tasted wonderful. At first the kids didn't want to drink anything so bright green, but after the first one tried it and loved it, they all did, LOL. I think the only change I made was not as much sugar and I strained the pineapple juice. I also made bloody ice hands out of cranberry juick and plastic gloves. They loved that, LOL.

Coconut Meringues

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
These were very good, I enjoyed them a lot. I don't think I will add the almond extract next time though.

Bev's Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I hated this pie. I am not new to chocolate pie baking, I just couldn't find my usual recipe. I did just like the recipe said and cooked it until the butter just melted and put it in the pie crust. I think I should have cooked it a lot longer. It took FOREVER to cook in the oven so that it wasn't wobbly. By the time it was done it was more like a brownie on the top and had a strange texture on the bottom. Also the pie crust on the bottom was TOUGH. I used a no fail meringue recipe (it has corn starch in it) and that part was beautiful. My kids wanted some so thought I would let them be the taste testers. Even they wouldn't eat it. Glad to hear so many of you had success with this one, but I did not. I won't be using it again.

Charline's Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
Made this again for Thanksgiving and it's on the menu for life now. It's the topping that makes this so delicous! Again, I would have given it 5 stars but I did change the recipe a bit which made it even better. Here is exactly what I did. I used 2 big cans of canned sweet potatoes (drained and mashed) and 1 cup of brown sugar instead of 2 cups of white. Also, everywhere it called for 3/4 cup of butter I only used 1/2 cup, only 3 eggs instead of 4 and NO COCONUT. (everything else I did the same) I cooked it a little bit longer than it called for. This fits nicely in a 9x13 pan btw. Again took this to the church Thanksgiving get together and like last year it was very popular.

Make Ahead French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
I made this following the recipe except I used only 3/4 cup of brown sugar and didn't pack it down and I used less pecans. I put parchment paper on the bottom of the pan and sprayed with Pam spray to keep it from sticking. I pour all the liquid over the bread and in the morning poured off any that wasn't absorbed. My husband made the mistake of taking it out too early and gave some to my daughter who hated it. Well I checked it and it wasn't done yet! So back in the oven for 15 more minutes. It really puffed up and I could tell it was done then. I didn't have a problem with it sticking at all. I liked this recipe and the pecan chips really made it special. It does taste more like bread pudding than french toast, but I did really like it. I froze a small portion of it too see if it freezes well.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
I know there are already so many positive reviews but had to add my two thumbs up, my kids two thumbs up and my neighbors who I shared half the batch with's thumbs up! I rolled from the long side and cut with dental floss every two inches. I ended up with 13 rolls. I used parchment paper on the bottom of the pan and when they were done turned them over onto a differnt pan (sprayed a little bit with spam) and let all the yummy goo drip back onto the tops. Then I flipped them back into the first pan and iced. I didn't use the icing recipe here as I had no cream cheese but I used a very simple one and it was delicious. 3 cups powdered sugar, 3 tbs milk, 1 tbs vanilla and mix. Add more milk to get the consistency you desire. WOW is all I can say. : ) The family came a running when they were done.
