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!

Homemade Condensed Milk

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I've made this a few times and it is a great substitute for the canned version...and much cheaper. I have found that you can get away with about 1 cup less powdered milk and still get perfect results.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
This is the perfect peanut butter cookie in a bar! Quick and easy. Delicious! I doubled this recipe for a 9 x 13 pan but used only 3 eggs. I added peanut butter chips which is a must in the perfect peanut butter cookie. We *loved* these! Also, for a 9 x 13 pan I found that baking for 30 minutes at 325 worked well.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
This was REALLY good. I used about 1 1/2 T. of fresh grated ginger. The amount listed, as others have noted, must be a typo. Everything else I followed exactly. It was exceptional. Everyone loved it. I cooked the beef in peanut oil as another review suggested. It was fairly crispy outside and tender inside. The sauce was perfect. I think this would make a great appetizer, too, served with toothpicks.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
These are super yummy. Perfect for our crowd here. I brushed some of the tops of them with the butter/mustard/Worcestershire recommended by Cookin4therapy (reviewed Jan 28, 2010) and that made them even better and the buns were soft and steamy. I think a little minced onion is good addition, too. Delicious!

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!

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.

Monkey Bread V

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
This is our Christmas morning breakfast. It's a special treat. We call it a "Cinnamon Pull Apart". I melt the butter first then coat the pieces in the cinnamon sugar mix then assemble.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
I'm giving this a 5 because these were easy, delicious and the perfect appetizer that I could prepare ahead of time. You will have to add some seasoning to the bread crumb coating. I added parmesan, garlic salt and onion powder. I made these the day before I needed them and fried them. I heated them in the oven the next day when I needed them and they were perfect. I served them with a honey mustard sauce. Delicious!!

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Delicious! This is biscuit perfection! I have long been in search of the perfect biscuit- this is it! Taking the advice of others here, I froze the butter and grated it. Also, I didn't knead the dough for 2 minutes. Tonight I made them topped with a blue cheese/garlic butter and baked them in mini quiche dishes....heavenly!

K-Dub's Alfredo Ravioli Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
This was *excellent*. So easy and delicious, too! My 13 yo son said, "This should be served at a fancy restaurant!" We doubled it for our crew of 8 and it was perfect.

Lemon Dijon Wings

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
The sauce is a 10 star sauce (although we use about half the salt!) but the cooking method doesn't seem to work for us. We've made these several times and can't seem to keep the sauce from burning off the wings with the high heat the recipe suggests. So, now we double the sauce but put the sauce on AFTER we cook the wings. I've also marinated the wings with just lemon and olive oil then grill them. Take them off the grill and coat them in the sauce. You can make them ahead of time and store them in the fridge til you need them. I pop them in the oven on 400 for about 10 or 15 minutes and they are perfect. We are addicted to these!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
This is delicious! I made it as directed and it was perfect! My kids asked if we could make this every week! I used an immersion blender in the pot which worked really well. It wasn't blended to a smooth consistency, which was perfect for us.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Like so many others, I used black beans. This was a great burrito! I put several in the freezer for later.

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!

Lemon Poke Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Perfectly easy, fresh, lemony cake. I topped it with a lemony whipped cream topping (4 oz cream cheese, 1 c. powdered sugar, 1 c. cool whip, the juice of one lemon and 1 tsp lemon zest). We love lemon so I only use fresh squeezed lemon juice which I think makes a difference and I add a bit of lemon juice to the cake.

Lemon Thyme Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
We love this rice. Great recipe (with obvious reduction in the thyme as noted by several here including the original chef). I use medium grain rice for a sticky type of rice. And, as someone else suggested, I invert a bowl full of rice on a plate or into another bowl for a nice presentation.

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
These are delicious! I have become a HUGE fan of these little treats. They are the perfect little dessert! I have made these many times since I discovered this recipe. The thing that makes it so perfect is that you can make the crisp part and the filling part ahead of time and refrigerate it. Put together the cups and filling just before you need them. Bake them as directed. However, the *best* thing is that you can actually make them, bake them and then freeze them. They are actually *perfect* this way and taste exactly the same as freshly baked and cooled. Pop them out on the counter just a little while before a party or guests coming. I keep them in the freezer now because you can actually defrost them in the microwave, too, in just a few seconds. They are great to have on hand. I do cut down on the butter by about 1/3, but other than that these are the absolutely perfect little treat. Thanks, Weeble!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
I've made this many times now and it really is super easy...but there is a bit of a learning curve! The candy thermometer is a huge help. Makes a great gift. People always ask for the recipe.
