Super Easy Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
I did not like this recipe. Cupcakes do not have much chocolate flavor. The consistency is more for a cake than cupcakes as I was not able to cleanly remove any of the cooled cupcakes from the wrapper. They fall apart. If there was more chocolate and they were baked in a 9x13 I would rate this a 3. Adjustments should be made if you are planning on removing these from their wrappers.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I thought this would be super hard to do but fondant turned out awesome! So easy to place on cake, no tears... I even added a lot of color! Great Fondant recipe and everyone loved the taste.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I am rating it a 4 because I only added one pkg. cream cheese and it was way more than enough for the soup. I think two pkgs. would make the cheese overpower the squash flavor. Very delicious! This is our new favorite.

Cream of Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Very tasty... don't change anything in this recipe. I actually wanted a little more texture so I added canned shoestring beets (not pickled). Very pretty and yummy!

Thai Ginger Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Don't do anything to this recipe... it's fantastic! We are going to make it at least once every couple weeks! This is not a spicy soup... the ginger does not make it spicy so if that's what you are looking for you will have to add extra spice.

Peanut Butter Balls III

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Best peanut butter balls I've ever had. I do think that the sugar should be cut back some, not for sweetness but the recipe is very dry and the balls are very hard to mold. They tend to be pretty crumbly. It took me a total of three hours to make the full batch... a little excessive for me because I have two kids under two. I should've cut this batch in 1/2. Very tasty though!

Banana Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
I didn't care for these. The bars were pretty bland with a very sweet topping. Not very good.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
Great recipe. I used butter instead of margarine and they were great. I omitted the salt. I read where a lot of people like to soak their seeds then let them dry overnight... I don't do this. I boil the seeds in water for about 35 min. I then pat dry and season them. I immediately bake them starting at 200 degrees then when they look fairly dry I turn up the heat to 275 - 300 deg. and take them out when they are a golden brown. It takes longer but I have had bad luck with my seeds burning when allowing them to dry out before baking. This way my seeds always turn out perfect in the middle. They are never wet.

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I used this recipe only for the peanut butter sauce. I used Adam's chunky peanut butter and it was delicious. My fiance couldn't get enough.

Sweet and Salty Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Good caramel apples but I suggest much less salt on the ingredients list. All you need is a couple pieces per apple. I wasn't thinking and made the mistake of using dark chocolate chips and they just don't work with the sweet, salty, and tart of the apples. I bet these are great with semi-sweet chips.

Fresh Spring Rolls With Thai Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Very good recipe. I love how healthy these are! I could not find the rice papers so I cooked rice noodles and served everything over the noodles kind of like a taco salad. I served the dipping sauce on the side and people used it like a salad dressing. Everyone loved it. One thing I added was fresh mint with the cilantro. A local thai restaurant serves their spring rolls with mint and I love the cilantro/mint combination in these.

Chicken Wing Dip

Yes, the best chicken wing dip I've ever had. The blue cheese makes this recipe. Ranch is now for the birds.

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Very easy to make, tasty... I added almond extract and the cookies turned out wonderful. I used the Best ever Rolled Cookie recipe. Next time will use less icing on the cookies. Set up really nicely but I recommend letting them set up before refrigerating if you added food coloring.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
These sugar cookies are great...I used a confectioners sugar and milk icing on these and they turned out really good. I suggest if you are going to use that type of icing that you don't cover the entire cookie... it's almost too sweet. As for the taste, sugar cookies are supposed to have frosting which would change the negative comments about this cookie. The dough was easily workable and the taste was not overly sweet. That's what I look for in a sugar cookie.

Dilly Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
Definately bland. You need to add more seasonings. I added the Pampered Chef all-purpose dill mix add salt and pepper to bring out the flavors more. I also added more of the mustard.
