Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This was an okay recipe. It was a nice change from the normal mushroom soup recipe, but I thought that the sour cream was a little over powering. Everyone at my easter party ate it, and everyone said it was good, but just different, or not what they expected. It wasn't horrible, but I don't think I would make this again.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
I'm only going to give this a 3 star rating. It's not that it was bad. It was just way to cheesy. I know that it is cream cheese frosting, but I added a ton more powdered sugar and still thought the cream cheese was way to strong. A lot of my guests liked it, but it's just not that good. The base was good, but cut out 8oz of cream cheese to get a better taste.

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
These are so ummy. It can be a little complicated to get the cake onto the powdered sugar towel, but then I stated putting wax paper over the towel. No sugar needed, and less mess all the way around. This are so good. I've made them many times, and they always turn out great. I do recommend that you make sure that your frosting is mixed well. I use a stand up mixer, and I have to do some extra scraping one the sides to make sure that my frosting isn't lumpy. This has become a family favorit.

Cheesy Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Awesome. Tasted great. I've had many variations of this kind of recipe, but this was quick, easy, and requested again. I did follow some recommendation given by others... I did add about 1/4 cup of sour cream to the mixture, and I also added some of the bacon bits to the center. It turned out really well, and couldn't have been easier to make.

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Wow best brownies ever. I do subsitute half bakers choc/oil for 2 of the baking squares, but i am now known as the brownie lady. I have been asked to make these brownies repeatedly. They are easy, quick, and come out perfectly. I only bake mine for 30-32 minutes. I found that at 35 they get a little tough.

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
This turned out really well. I made two batches. One of which i did normally, and the other one I added half a bag of chocolate chips. I like the ones with chips better, but both were good. I would make this again.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
This recipe was good, and turned out well. I smelled so good while i was baking it, but I thought it was a little dry. It was definately not over cooked, but maybe that's just pound cake.

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Wow these were really good, and I hate meatloaf. I made these for a party, and they were a big hit. I was even asked to share the recipe. I would make these again anytime.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
WOW this is fantastic. The only things I did differently is I did cook the turkey breast in 1 cup of chicken broth in the bottom of the slow cooker. I also put a few pads of butter in the bottom of the slow cooker. To add my own little touch I also minced up some fresh garlic. I rubbed the garlic on top of the turkey breast, and added some to the bottom of the slow cooker. The drippings and broth from the bottom of the pan can be turned into a great gravy. My husband loved this recipe, and asked if we make out Thanksgiving turkey this way.

French Silk Chocolate Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Everyone is right there is not enough filling for one pie. You need to double the filling to make a true french silk pie. I also strongly agree with other reviewers that you need to whip the egg whites and sugar to a thick consistancey then add that to your chocolate mixture. This is a great recipe. It was fast and easy to make. I will use this again.

Pasta e Olio

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
This was fantastic! I however added a lot more garlic than the recipe called for. I also added a handfull of whole garlic cloves. It took about 7 minutes longer to cook with the whole garlic cloves. Next time i make this i will also try to add some fresh steamed veggies to the mix!

Slow Cooker Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
This really turned out aweful. I had high hopes after reading other reviews, but i found it just spicey and bland. My family wouldn't eat it, so i ended up adding a jar of salsa, corn, and black beans to make it more of a taco soup dish that i served with sprinked cheese and sour cream (tortillas on the side) That came out pretty good, and has since been requested again.

Crescent-Wrapped Brie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
Oh my god this is a great recipe. It was so simple and quick. My guests loved it. My only warning ti make sure that the seams on your dough are sealed well. I had a little leakage from one of them, other than that it was perfect.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This stuffing turned out great. The only thing that i would change is the amount of sausage that was used. It has good flavor, but it was a little to meaty for my tastes. Next time i will also add more apple to the mix. It gives it a little bit of a sweeter flavor.

Easy Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
I don't like ham, but this was great. It was so easy and simple. The ham came out so tender that it just fell off of the bone when i tried to get it out of the slow cooker. My ham was a little large for my pot, so i justed basted it with the juices every few hours to keep it moist. This will definately be my ham recipe for all of my family get togethers.

Pastry for Single-Crust Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
My biggest complaint with this recipe, is that it doesn't state how long to bake it. The recipe i was using just said use a baked pie crust. I baked mine at 450 degrees for 12 minutes and turned out okay.

Double Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This pie came out really well. It is very rich, and very sweet. I would recommend cutting back on the sugar just a little. Other than that it was great.

New York Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
Overall hte cheesecake came out pretty good, and everyone liked it. I had a hard time with the crust when i baked it, and i prefer a grahm cracker crust instead of what is used here. The filling tasted good, but mine was a little runny in the very center. I will make again, but with differen crust, and a few more minute in the oven. I also find it helpful to but a pan full of water under the cheesecake in the oven as it cooks. It helps with the cracking.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This turkey came out pretty good. My only complaint was mine was finished cooking in only 3 hours (and it was stuffed). I ended up taking it out of the oven, and putting it back in later. Otherwise it came out pretty good.
