Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
I gave these 5 stars because they are so quick and simple to make, inexpensive, and everyone loves them! I whip out several batches of these for co-workers, teachers, bus driver, etc. Some tips: always line your jelly roll pan with foil AND spray with non-stick spray. You can use graham crackers or saltines; my family prefers graham crackers. Be sure to watch your time closely so they don't burn. After you put on the chocolate chips, return the pan to the oven for about one minute then it's easy to spread the melted chips with a spatula. I don't usually add the nuts as they are pretty expensive and I am always making multiple batches. I usually just sprinkle them with red and green sugar if I have it. I always let these cool in the garage-- freezer or fridge is not necessary unless you're in a hurry. Then before they are completely cool, use your pizza cutter to cut them. These makes a for a nice presentation (as they are in squares) and easy removal from the tray.

Margaritas

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
These were so easy to make! Just as easy as buying the mix but tasted so much better! I got many compliments on these at my girls' night out.

Italian Meatloaf in Zucchini Boats

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
This recipe was yummy and a great way to use up zucchini! I used 4 medium zucchini and had plenty of filling. Following other reviewer's advice, I cooked the zucchini for 15 minutes before stuffing then baking as stated in the recipe. However, I mixed the shredded mozzarella in with the meat mixture BEFORE baking. They came out perfect. I served these with a side of spaghetti.

Confetti Chowder

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
My family liked this recipe. Although my 11 year old said there were too many veggies, LOL! I followed the recipe very closely. I had a bag of mixed veggies in the freezer (same ones as in the recipe) which I used instead of fresh. I added some Italian seasoning and minced garlic based on other reviews. I did not use peas or pimentos because we don't like them. This is a great base recipe that you can use exactly as is or play around with to suit your family's taste!

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
I am giving this 5 stars even though I tweaked it a bit. I used 1/2 bag of dried black beans (soaked cooked of course) because my family does not like red beans. I used a can of crushed tomatoes because I didn't want to do any chopping. At a friend's suggestion, I used a pack of Carolina Saffron yellow rice mix with seasonings found in the grocery store rice aisle. One packet was barely enough for my family of 4 so you may need to use 2 (it cost 75 cents!). My entire family LOVED this meal. We are from PA and don't care if it's authentic or not. It was easy and delicious!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Delicious! I followed this recipe almost exactly as far as ingredients go, but added my own twist. Based on other reviews, I did leave out the beer. After I dumped in the ingredients, I put some water in each can to rinse out the contents and added that to the soup because it did not seem like enough liquid. After 7 hours in the crockpot on low, I added a (12 oz??) bag of shredded cheddar. I also mixed some cooled broth with flour and added that to the soup to thicken it slightly. We served it with hearty bread, tortilla chips, and a dollop of sour cream. My family loved it!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
This ham and bean soup was delicious! I followed some other reviewers' suggestions and bought a bag of mixed dried beans. I used the quick soak method and it worked fine. I put the leftover bone from our Christmas spiral ham along with all the other ingredients in the crock pot for 8 hours on low. Along with a loaf of Italian bread we had a hearty meal for a cold winter night!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
My family LOVES this recipe. What I've learned from making this several times is that if you will be home in 5-6 hours, follow the recipe exactly. If you are going to be gone longer, then it is best to add the soup in the morning unless you use frozen chicken breasts which will obviously take longer to cook. I had a long day at work and left the thawed chicken breasts on low for 7 hours and they began to get brown. This did not affect the taste of the recipe, however. I have also used a packet of ranch dressing which I had on hand, rather than the Italian. This is simple and delicious every time!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
My main reason for rating this is to let you know this can be made the night before. I used 3 small (7 oz?) tubes of biscuits, followed the recipe for the cinnamon & sugar coating, and left them in the bundt pan overnight in the fridge covered with plastic wrap. In the morning, I made the caramel mixture (with a tsp. of vanilla as others suggested) and baked. They came out great! This step saved me a lot of time in the morning as I needed them for our early morning bus stop party.

German Chocolate Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
I LOVE these bars! Yup, they are very rich and very chocolatey (is that a word?) which is why we like them. I sprinkle some coconut flakes on top when adding the chocolate chips and frosting because I like a little more coconut. I never refrigerate before cutting; I simply let cool completely like I would brownies.

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Yummy, rich and chocolatey! I took other reviewers' advice and started with 1/3 cup sugar and added more to taste. I also added 2 packets of splenda to save some calories.

Spicy Beef Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This soup was awesome! My kids loved it. I added some fresh veggies I had around the house-corn, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots. I also added some shell pasta during the last half hour of cooking. I did not use the tsp. of pepper b/c I did not want spicy stew. I used only enough water to rinse out the sauce and tomato containers and I had to add more water after the pasta cooked to make it more like soup.

Red Velvet Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I think this is as close to a true red velvet cake as you can get while using a boxed cake mix. I consider myself a RV connoisseur but a novice cake baker so the idea of making a RV cake from scratch seemed daunting. I followed this recipe exactly except for using 3 T of cocoa powder and a different icing recipe as suggested by other reviewers. This cake was fabulous! Everyone who tasted it loved it and it was moist and delicious. I will definitely be making this again!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Although this recipe doesn't need any more comments, I'll explain how I doubled it. I used a 9x13" pan. I made an oreo crust for the bottom using 2 sleeves of crushed Oreos. Then added a half gallon of raspberry swirl. Then a layer of strawberry sauce and 1 sleeve crushed oreos. Another layer of strawberry swirl and covered that with whipped cream. Delicious!

Caramelized Onion and Gorgonzola Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I, too, followed reviewers advice and used the quick and easy pizza crust from this site. I reduced the gorgonzola to 5 oz. (the size of the tub in my local store) and added about 5 oz. shredded mozzarella. Be sure to use 2 BIG onions. Yummy!

Crabmeat Canapes

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I followed the advice of the other reviewers and used garlic powder in place of garlic salt. I also lightly toasted the muffins first. I was unable to find Kraft Old English cheese so I used Wispride sharp cheddar in the dairy section of the grocery store. These were very good. My kids loved them too, I called them "Krabby Patties"!

Brandy Slushes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I got this recipe from my mother-in-law. I made it for my bunco group and it was a big hit. However, I used peach brandy and substituted frozen peach daquiri mix for one of the concentrates. I also provide ginger ale, rather than lemon-lime soda. Be sure to make this first thing in the morning and stir every hour or two to keep the alcohol mixed as well as to prevent big chunks from forming (trust me on this, I learned the hard way!).

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This is a delicious and easy breakfast casserole. I followed the recipe as is and my family loved it! However, I too found it was not necessary to refrigerate overnight (as another reviewer stated). My 8 year old requested this for Christmas breakfast and my mother-in-law wanted the recipe (so you know it HAS to be good LOL).

The South Mission Mango

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This is a definitely a nice drink for sitting out on the patio. I agree with some of the reviews in that it is a very thick, frothy drink. I used frozen mango because I couldn't find canned and then I cut back on the ice.
