Pepperoni Caesar Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
So good! I added extra caesar dressing as needed, especially after having it in the fridge overnight. I also added some olives which were a delicious addition. I will definitely make again, this is also great with Italian dressing or Ranch dressing.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
These are my favorite Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, they definitely have some spice, not a bland oatmeal cookie. I did not change anything about this recipe. Definitely use butter flavored shortening and not plain shortening. If you do not have butter flavored shortening, then just use another stick (1/2) cup of butter. I dropped my cookies onto the sheet as rounded tablespoons not teaspoons and cooked them for 15-16 minutes with the same results!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
If you are going to go through the process of using very cold butter, cold mixing bowl, ice water, etc this is a great pie crust. Great flavor and very flaky as the title suggests! Great with any pie...much better than shortening. I suggest brushing the top with either an egg wash or melted butter so it gets nice and golden brown.

Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
Obviously this recipe could not be any easier. Make sure that the cream cheese is softened! You can switch it up by adding strawberry cream cheese instead of plain. Takes great with grapes, strawberries, cantalope, honeydew, and pineapple. Great to have out for guests in the summer.

Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
Fantastic!! I could not believe how moist these are!! I did not add the jalapeno and I but the onion and extra garlic into the food processor because the burgers will fall apart on the grill if they are not finely, finely minced. Such a great flavor and incredibly juicy. These burgers go great with the roasted cajun potatoes recipe from this website!

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
So good!! It would be even better with a cream sauce to go on top. The only change I made was to roll the chicken in the bread crumbs and sprinkle them on top! Very easy to make!

Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
Always a hit!! I did not change a thing, except I used a 9x13 pan and I cooked it for 27-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. I prepare the frosting in the last five minutes that the cake is cooking and make sure to pour it over warm cake!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
I made this for a BBQ dinner party and everyone went crazy over it, people were even putting it on their burgers!! I made a few changes that make all the difference. First off, I did not use canned chicken, instead I sprinkled 1 lb. of chicken tenders with garlic powder, salt, and pepper and cooked in a little bit of vegetable oil. Once the chicken cooled, I shredded it into a pot and cooked with Frank's Buffalo sauce. I would suggest 1/2 c. ranch and 1/2 cup of blue cheese dressing and no cheddar cheese because it makes the dip oily. Also, instead of cooking this in the crockpot, I transferred the dip to a baking dish and baked for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. I served with celery stick and tortilla chips.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
These are delicious, I made them for family and everyone insisted I give them the recipe. Someone actually said they wanted to eat a huge bowl of these as their entire dinner! I made a couple of changes, I added salt and pepper to the sauce before stirring it in with the potatoes and onions. I also sauteed the onions, cut into smaller pieces, with a couple tablespoons of butter to cut down on the raw onion flavor. I would also suggest mixing the onions, potatoes, and sauce all together and definitely uncover these for the last 20 minutes. Great recipe!

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
Very good pie!!! I love making pies at home and this was so easy and well worth any effort. I used a butter flaky pie crust from this website for the bottom and as a lattice. The only changes I would make, as other reviewers have suggested, increase the cornstarch to 5 Tablespoons and add at least 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice. I lowered the oven temperature to 400 degrees and cooked it for the full time. Make sure to place a sheet pan beneath the pie dish because it may bubble over

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
I am sorry to give this recipe such a low rating and it could be attributed to me cutting the recipe in half. These turned out very dry, nothing like a moist brownie at all.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
Yet another great simple weeknight dinner! I serve this with a salad and it makes a great meal. I also add 10oz. of spinach to the mixture, which I highly suggest...it is almost like adding chicken to spinach and artichoke dip, so good!

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
How can you not give these 5 stars...they are such a classic. Obviously these are very easy to make and just as tasty. For a nice variation, I will add 1 cup of peanut butter and a couple extra cups of rice cereal...depending on the texture.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
I am giving this apple pie four stars because it is missing some essential ingredients. With the modifications it is a truly great apple pie. I add 1/2-1 tsp. of cinnamon, depending on your tastes, and 1/8-1/4 tsp. of nutmeg. I also keep all of the other ingredients the same except I reduce the number of Granny smith apples to 6.

White Chocolate Blondies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
These are good, have great flavor, but they are almost like cake. So if you are looking for something dense and very moist, these are not it. Make sure to toss the chocolate chips in flour before stirring them into the batter or they will fall to the bottom of the pan.

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
I gave these a 4 stars because after a day or two they became very dry, even with a slice of bread in the container. Right out of the oven or a couple of hours later they were very good. I suggest cooking them for 8 minutes as a maximum, depending on the size of your cookie of course, they can then set up and they are gooey and pretty tasty.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
So good! I added an extra tablespoon of pesto, as well as 3/4 cup of sun-dried tomatoes. I also used angel hair pasta and it was the perfect combination.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Tasty and simple. I have made this a variety of ways and everyone says it has a "restaurant flavor". Sometimes I use turkey sausauge, or hamburger meat. I also puree twice the amount of garlic in my food processor, we love the flavor of garlic. I have also used a 26 oz. jar of pasta sauce instead of the canned tomatoes. It always turns out well.

Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Very nice, light flavor. I used 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of a chicken quartered. I also grated 5 cloves of garlic instead of 3 chopped. Simple and versatile, I serve this with brocolli or over a salad for a light dinner.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
First of all this chicken is great hot in a wrap or even cold in a packed lunch. You can serve this so many ways. When I make sandwiches I leave the chicken breasts whole and add ranch dressing on the top. For the wraps I actually shred the chicken after cooking it in the skillet. This is great when it is cooked on the grill or on the stovetop.
