Whipped Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
This is an excellent recipe. These sweet potatoes are delicious! I have made them several times now. I was nervous initially about making them after reading the varying reviews here - some saying too sweet, some saying not sweet enough, too much nutmeg, etc. I think the trick is (and the beauty of this recipe)to mix up the potatoes with the butter then add half of the sugar, nutmeg and orange juice called for. Then taste it. Then add up to the second half to correct it to your taste. The other great thing about this recipe is that I always make it the day before. I cover it and refrigerate it in the serving dish without the marshmallows. I reheat it on the day I need it then add the marshmallows and toast them under the broiler. Delicious!

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
Excellent! I followed suggestions others listed here: sub instant mashed potato flakes for the flour, add garlic and italian seasoning. Delicious! Everyone devoured them. I offered a variety of accompaniments: sour cream and green tobasco sauce, salsa and chunky marinara (from this site). Each topping got rave reviews. So, these are basically excellent no matter how you choose to serve them!

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
I HIGHLY recommend topping these with monterey jack cheese, avacado and the roasted red pepper mayonnaise from another turkey burger recipe on this site (1/3 cup light mayo, 2 T. chopped roasted red peppers, 1/2 tsp grated lemon peel, 1/8 tsp salt and a quick squeeze of lemon juice). I doubled the recipe for our family of 8, but did not double the onion soup mix as many have suggested it's too much. These are delicious turkey burgers!

Absolutely delicious! Don't substitute another frosting for this fabulous cake! It's so fudgy and delicious. I have gotten many requests for this very yummy cake. And so EASY! This has become one of my favorite recipes when we have dinner guests.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
Excellent! Excellent! We have made this twice and my kids *love* this and devour nearly the entire thing. We like to sprinkle garlic salt on it before serving it.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
Good starter recipe. Definitely, as others have said, too sweet. I had to add quite a bit more lemon juice.

Pumpkin Roll Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I love this recipe. I have made this recipe 3 times now. Each time I used all the ingredients exactly as they are called for. I varied the way I prepared the pan each time based on reviews here. Here's what I found...the first time I made it I just sprayed the pan then poured in the batter. It came out fine. The second time I did the same - and it stuck! Same pan but for some reason I was not as lucky as the first time. The third time I lined the pan with parchment, sprayed that then poured in the batter. That seemed to work best but I found out why you spray the pan also *before* you put the paper in...some batter leaked under the paper and stuck to the pan a bit. It stil turned out okay. I think I have learned: DON'T TAKE YOUR CHANCES ONLY SPRAYING THE PAN. Lastly, IF YOU CRACK IT BEYOND REPAIR: I broke it into pieces and used a trifle bowl to layer the pieces and the cream cheese mixture (with 1 cup cool whip mixed into the cream cheese). I topped it with more cool whip, nuts, and a dusting of cinnamon. It was a good rescue and looked great!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
Great Recipe! I did add 1/4 cup flour as others have suggested. I have made this *many* times and the flour definitely helps. We use this as a base recipe and make variations every time we make it (i.e. adding coconut, varying the chips, varying the types of nuts, etc.) Our favorite way to enjoy this recipe - use 1/2 cup peanut butter chips and 1/2 cup milk choc chips instead of the 1 cup chocolate chips. Then sub peanuts for the nuts called for. Delicious!! This is a great recipe!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009

Restaurant-Style House Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
We added fresh chopped garlic and a dash of "salad herbs" I had on the shelf after reading reviews suggesting a few additions for a bit more flavor. I think this recipe definitely needs something. We also didn't use all the cheese and it was still a bit too cheesy in my opinion. With these modifications it was an *excellent* salad - definitely a 5 but not as the recipe is written so I gave it a 4.

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I use a Rubbermaid "Take Along" round #3 container for half of this recipe. I love the presentation of it in that shape. I use that every time and I think it looks great! I LOVE this recipe and have made it for MANY events. It always gets devoured.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
My daughter (6 year old) made the chips tonight for daddy. She cut them out with a heart shaped cookie cutter. We always dust them a second time with cinnamon sugar after they come out of the oven

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
This was a nice side dish - a good change from rice or other pastas. We love it. We had to use dried basil but can imagine that it would be fantastic with fresh basil. Very simple - my 15 year old son made it for us tonight.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
The flavor was good but I had a tough time cooking them so that they wouldn't seem wet inside from the banana. I found that a medium low heat worked best but several pancakes in the experimental phase were mushy inside. Again, the flavor is good. Definitely 5 stars for flavor but I gave it 4 stars because these were flat and not fluffy. I even tried sifting the flour which is the usual requirement for fluffy pancakes.

Lemonade Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
This is a great recipe...very lemony, very fresh for summer baking, and EASY!! Honestly, most of you out there will know it's from a box....but, ultimately, I believe your family and guests will love it. This is the perfect summer time light dessert when you don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. My 14 year old son made this for our family and guests - everyone loved it.

Heavenly Chipped Chocolate and Hazelnut Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
If you have never made a cheesecake, this is a great recipe for you! It doesn't require the daunting "water bath" that most cheesecakes require. I'm giving it a 5 because of the fairly easy preparation (okay, the crust was time consuming and I didn't dip the hazelnuts in chocolate for the top), the great presentation (this looks fabulous and expensive), and the *delicious* flavor. BUT, I must admit it didn't quite taste the rich hazelnutty way I expected. I crumbled a chocolate hazelnut bar on the top and when I tasted a piece of the bar I realized that was the flavor I was hoping for (like Nutella) but the hazelnut liqueur just wasn't able to give it that flavor. Next time I might spread Nutella across it the top instead of the chocolate/hazelnut liqueur mixture. All that said, I still think this is a fantastic cheesecake and it is definitely worth trying if this is your first attempt at cheesecake!

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I learned a lot about pancake making by reading through the reviews. I made this using the exact ingredients - no substitutions - and these were *excellent*! Here's what I learned from other reviewers....melt the butter then let it sit to cool, let the eggs and milk sit out to come to room temp, DO NOT OVERMIX, cook them a bit lower and slower than a box mix, sift the dry ingredients twice, and don't sub the buttermilk! We *loved* these fluffy pancakes and, as written, the recipe fed our family of 8 and we even had about 20 pancakes left! A 1/4 cup measuring scoop works great for a good size pancake. And, we added blueberries for my husband's pancakes and coated them with a bit of the dry mix to keep them from sinking as one reviewer suggested. EXCELLENT recipe!

Key Lime Pie VIII

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I made two batches of this recipe side by side. But, I left out (inadvertantly) the pudding mix in one of the batches....and that batch was SO much better! I also tried this crumbling a graham cracker crust into individual size footed glass bowls. They were adorable and delicious (without the pudding!) Lastly,I found a *huge* difference in using fresh limes vs. bottled key lime juice. The bottled juice left a stong imitation lime after taste. I'll only use fresh lime juice now.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
This was a great "last minute/no time to bake" cake. It was not *excellent* but definitely works as a good dessert in a pinch. I added 2 eggs as other suggested. I also used the Satiny Chocolate Glaze from this site.
