Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Absolutly wonderful cinnamon roll bread dough! I didn't use the filling in the recipe, because I was unsure about the white sugar. Instead I used the Clone of a Cinnabon filling (and doubled it since I needed it for 2 dozen rolls. Also, baked at 350 degrees as recommended by other reviewers, and then iced with cream cheese frosting.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I made this for dessert a few weeks back when we had friends over for dinner. Everyone enjoyed it very much! I followed the recipe except for using only about 3/4 of the cool whip called for, and reducing the milk a bit. I used a graham cracker crust that had "2 extra servings" and it filled the one pie perfectly. Folded in some crushed pb cups, topped with some of the remaining cool whip, and a few more whole pb cups. Thanks for the recipe!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
Excellent chicken!! I did cut the butter in half as recommended, instead of regualr salt, I used Lawry's, and instead of regular mustard, used dijon. Used a pack of drumsticks instead of a fryer chicken, since that is what I had on-hand. I dipped each drumstick in the sauce, and placed on a foil lined pan - I like easy clean-up. Covered the pan with more foil and baked for 30 minutes. Then uncovered and poured the remaining sauce over the drumsticks and put back (uncovered) in the oven for 45 minutes, basting every 15 minutes. Served over white rice and poured the yummy cooked up sauce over the rice too. Both my husband and I loved it!! He's already planning on trying it out on the grill. If you like honey-mustard, this is a sure winner!!

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
I'm not a coconut eater, but this got a 5 Star rating from my husband. The only thing he didn't like was the the crust wasn't crsip/firm enough.

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
Very Good! I omitted the lemon pepper, but left the rest of the recipe the same. I made them for snacks for the holiday weekend. Now they just have to last until my company arrives!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
Very Yummy! Just what I was looking for. As recommended, I did toss the pb cups in the freezer for a bit before pushing them in the cookies, also put the pan in the fridge right after pusing in the pb cups so they didn't melt.

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
We like this very much. My 14 month old loved it! I made the recipe as stated, except for subbing ground venison for the beef/sausage. This is going into our supper rotation. Thanks for the recipe!

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
This was very good. It was a little too strong on the orange flavor. I think I would reduce the orange zest a bit. I followed other reviews, and let the chicken stay crisp keep warm in a 200 degree oven after I fryed it. When everything was ready, I served it family style in a big bowl. I layered white rice, then a mixture of veggies (pea pods, carrots, broccoli, and mushrooms that I stir-fryed in a little of the sauce), the chicken, then I poured the orange sauce over it. Finally, I topped with sliced almonds and crispy noodles. Update: I've made this again since my 1st review, and we've decided that this is definitly a 5 star recipe instead of the original 4 stars. I think I finally found a good balance with the orange zest!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
We LOVE this soup. It has become a regular meal in our house now that the weather has started cooling. It is so simple and easy, and tastes great too. I usually use the recipe for Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning instead of a pre-mixed packet. We top it with crushed tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and sour cream. Wonderful recipe!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
Very good! I subbed pickels for the green onion and used dijon mustard. I liked the addition of paprika. Served it on a bun with lettuce, tomato, and a few more pickle planks. Thanks Wifey!!

Corn Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
This dip is addictive! I made a half-batch for a very small New Year's party (only 7 adults) and after a very large dinner - including cake for dessert - my guests managed to go through 2 bags of tortilla chips and all of the dip! You can't go wrong with this, and it won't hurt to have a few spare recipe cards laying around if you make this for guests!

Deep South Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
My husband asked for fried chicken, so I looked around this site and decided on this one. I'm very glad I did. It was very easy to make, crisped up beautifully, and tasted great. I followed the recipe as stated, except I didn't use cast iron, I just used my largest fry pan. He loved it! Thanks for the recipe.

Fresh Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
Excellent cookie! I had some fresh ginger left over from an asian dish I was making and decided to go looking for a cookie recipe. Very glad I found this one! I made the cookies slightly larger - I used a 2 tbsp. measuring spoon - and ended up with 2 dozen. Baked just a bit longer too, about 18 minutes. They are best after they have cooled, since the flavors don't come out as well when they are fresh out of the oven. I also used the tip of freezing my ginger before grating on my mircoplaner. Worked great!

Peanut Butter Bars II

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Both my husband and I thought these were very good. I thought that the chocolate chip topping could be reduced or even left off, but he liked it just as written. Since I didn't have a full bag of peanut butter cups (Easter candy left-overs) I made just a half batch in an 8x8" pan, and ended up baking a good 10 minutes longer than called for since they were still jiggly at 25 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
This is one of my husband's favorite meals. I don't layer the dish though. I cook the ground beef and onion, and when browned, mix in the cream of mushroom soup, milk, a can of drained corn, and the 1 1/2 cups of cheese. I then put it in a 2qt casserole dish and top with the tater tots and another 1/2 cup of cheese and bake for about 55 minutes. We've tried this with different types of cheese, but always go back to a mild cheddar. Sharp cheddar is very good, but probably not the most kid-friendly taste and Co-jack seems to leave it with a slightly bitter taste.

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
Yummy! Reminded me of pudding at Grandma's house. Everyone in our home enjoyed it very much! Only change was to use whole milk instead of 2%.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Yummy! Made as called for, except for adding peanut butter chips as well as regular semi-sweet chips. Even my husband who isn't a chocoholic like me loved these. For sure a make again recipe!

Pet Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
Thank you so much for this recipe! My dog is allergic to almost everything, and I had never thought of using baby food to make dog treats. I used lamb baby food and barley flour since my Flash Dog is allergic to wheat. He loved the treats! As for the other reviewers who commented on cost, for the owner of an allergy pet, this was really inexpensive! I have to drive an hour to the nearest pet store to get a sweet potato biscuit that he can eat, and then pay almost $6 for the small box of treats. Flash and I thank you very much!

Chicken and Bowtie Pasta with Asiago Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
This was great! I made it for my birthday dinner tonight, and it was better than going out to a restaurant. I followed a few recommendations of other reviewers. I used 1 tsp. of chicken base instead of 1/4 of a boullion cube, upped the proscuitto to 1/2 cup and used about 1 1/2 c. of baby bella mushrooms. As for the chicken, I had some that I had already pulled left over from a cut up fryer I had boiled, so I just used that. This was wonderful, and we will definatly make it again. Thanks for the great recipe!!
