S'more Eyeballs

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2014
What a fun recipe. I totally didn't read that the marshmallows needed to be cut into half. I used a whole one for each s'more. Making it slightly messy coming out of the pan when cooled...now I know after re-reading it in my review. However, will make again because it was that much fun. The graham crust was really nicely one and had a wonderful crunch factor that we liked. Thanks for posting the recipe!

Spooky Halloween Eyeballs

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2014
OMGosh!!! These were the best!!! SO much fun. I can say, that these will be repeat offenders every year now for Halloween. My kids laughed so hard and found them way cool. And got told, I was the best! Shining the apple on my shoulder ;-) I did skip direction #3 because I had already purchased Wilton Spooky Eyes Candy and made a great stand-out impression on the treat and with my family. TY so much.....great recipe.

Unbaked Meringue

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
1st time I've made a no-bake meringue, and it was really good. Was airy, fluffy and light but wasn't spongy spring back like baked meringues...but totally loved it. I colored mine with Wilton Orange food coloring paste with the making of the syrup and turned every soo pretty when drizzling it in to the egg whites. I can see making this again because it was so easy and so quick to make...might have to bypass whip topping on some occasions ;-) TY this was wonderful.

Apple Streusel Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
This recipe was amazing! I sized this down to making 1 pie and it was perfect. The crunch of the streusel was excellent. I made the streusel without the pecans but only added them after I mixed the butter, brown sugar and flour together, then stored in the fridge until I finished the other steps. Then after it baked, I drizzled caramel sauce over the top and everyone was happy happy. TY I will totally make again. Best way to eat an apple pie!

Disappearing Caramel Apple Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
You can NOT have these cookie bars without the caramel drizzle. It's a must as I was told by everyone. Really easy recipe. Everyone enjoyed these. My one child that can't have apples liked the fact I left some bars apple free but sprinkled the spices on top and then drizzled the caramel on it. And the recipe is correct, when they disappeared, kids were like "where'd the go?!" because they wanted more. Super recipe.

Pear and Apple Coffee Cake with Walnut Topping

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
I hate being the barer of rating a recipe 1st especially if I'm giving it a bad review. I do cook & bake GF at home because of family members. SO note, I'm not an expert, but this recipe was epically a disaster. So, I'll break it down on where I hade issues. Direction 1. No specific size springform, so I used a 12in after looking at the ingredients. 1 tsp of melted coconut oil didn't cover much of anything. I had to use more then then a tbsp. Direction 3. There was more butter then coconut flour & I couldn't get it to resemble coarse crumbs for nothing & I had my butter in the freezer for an hour prior, so it didn't melt with working with it. I ended up adding more coconut flour (close to 4tbsp additionally). Direction 5. I mixed wet & dry separately & added together. Everything else was standard to a T. I took my time with this recipe & felt it was going to be good. But 35 minutes into baking it, it was burning on the top, did a prick test for doneness & wasn't ready. So I tented it with foil to prevent anymore scorching. At the 40 minute mark, checked again & the edges of the cake were already extremely dark, pricked again & came out clean. I pulled immediately. Waited the allotted time, removed the ring from the pan, tried to cut a portion only to have the cake crumble & split. The layers didn't bind or marry together at all & the bottom still stuck to the foil. It tasted awful, nothing like it should taste & the fruit was still crunchy. Sorry...was very disappointed.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2014
Biscuits fluffed up just beautifully. Couldn't ask for a better quick mix biscuit. I did double the cheese to 6oz because it didn't look like it was enough. However, it's a really nice versatile recipe for extra mix-in's and will be my now go to biscuit recipe. Thank you it's a keeper.

Tortilla Pinwheels

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2014
This is totally weekend comfort grabs for my family. Grabbing quick yummy snack bites is the best. I made this recipe 2-ways, one with the way the recipe was written with ham and one with Johnsonville Italian Sausage(using 3 un-cased sausage links, cooked & drained. We can say we loved them both ways and I found that everyone swarmed the fridge. They were great. One thing I will note is, I don't usually buy already whipped cream cheese, so I doesn't take but a minute or two, to put a block of cream cheese in a bowl and blend with a hand mixer. (saves on the price difference, if there is one.) Recipe is a keeper.

Polish Kielbasa and Pierogies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2014
My family loved eating Johnsonville Sausage with onions and pierogies. The recipe was truly simple and easy with pre-made frozen pierogies and came together quite nicely. Will make again. Beats having just plain pierogies when you can add sausage and onions for a nice treat.

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2014
recipe was so simple and easy from start to finish. My kids really enjoyed this very much. I added about 1/2 cup of walnuts to the batter and then when baked I drizzled a little quick glaze on top with a walnut half. They looked absolutely beautiful and were nice, moist and light, not dense. Will make again. TY

Peachy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2014
LOOOOOOVED!!! this. My grocery store didn't have peach pie filling, so I took the juice from 2 24oz cans of sliced peaches and thickened up the juice with cornstarch and cooked until really thick. (Don't ask exact measurement, because I winged this part in desperation, LOL) However, followed the rest of the salad with an additional 1/2 cup more of grapes and added 1 cup of fresh strawberries...oh holy cow was it fantastic. Better then any canned fruit cocktail and now going to be on many feasts and family gatherings from now on!!! TY so much suesee ;-) it's the bomb!

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
Easy recipe tasted really good, it was well liked. However, I'm going to leave off the potato skins the next time as, it was something I found that I preferred after making the recipe. And I'm more of a person that likes a more intense clam/seafood flavor, so I'll be using seafood stock or more clam juice in place of the water addition in step 2. However, will be on rotation for the family as they liked it very much.

Creamy White Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2014
Recipe was totally enjoyable and tasty. Simple to assemble and I always keep all these ingredients on hand, made nice for a partly dreary day in Southern Oregon. I will have to say, it was very runny for a chili. I will make again but I think I'll leave the heavy whipping cream as I feel was the reason the chili was runny. My family really loved the recipe very much.

Crab Rangoon I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2014
really easy filling, good recipe and was a hit with the family that loves seafood. However, my only gripe is, because I'm so thorough. Is that 1 tsp didn't look like it was enough to fill with, so I used 1 1/2 tsp (or 1/2 TBSP...equals the same conversion) However, in doing that I used just over 2 14oz packages of wonton wrappers...90 wontons to be exact. The filling makes a lot. Mid-way through I was looking at the amount I had so far and then looking at how much filling was in the bowl and was thankful that I purchased 3 packages of wonton wrappers. And trust me when I say, I used a measuring spoon to measure out the filling, I seriously did. I'll make these again because they were totally good but I'll have to freeze more then half the batch.

Mama's Lasagna Scramble

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014
This recipe sounded soo good, still does. However, 2 ingredients over powered this dish to where it should have been 5 star rating. I questioned myself first and then should have listened and gone with my instinct, but there is way to much black pepper and dried thyme in the recipe. And it's all we could taste above everything else. They both were totally overwhelming. The thyme sat on the tongue above the flavors while the black pepper did a party in the back of the throat and wasn't fun. My youngest had the most difficulties with this issue and this momma felt horribly bad. I'd ONLY try this again with taking my instinct like I should have done and reduce the black pepper to 1/4 to 1/2 tsp verses 1 1/2tsp total as well as the same with the thyme. I did top the recipe with 1/2cup shredded cheese mixed with 1/4 cup of shredded parm and a sprinkling of home grown dried basil before placing in the oven.

Chop Suey Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
While this recipe had a great flavor, I'm on the fence with this. Batter was easy and simple and while it had a great flavor, from a piece I could taste. I couldn't believe how the batter soaked up the non stick spray I used to keep the cake from sticking to the pan as it cooked, totally went out the window and glued to the pan like I didn't use anything. I couldn't pry this out of the pan. No subtle way or approach worked to get a nice piece out of the pan. I looked like Lucille Ball from I Love Lucy involved in a comedy skit. By the time I tried, the cake was all over me and the countertop and it looked like a bomb exploded in my kitchen. Needless to say, a 2nd attempt was made and same thing happened, so I gave up after I had a few chuckles from my kids at my mess. There won't be a 3rd attempt but again what I could taste was nice.

Biscotti Dessert Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
Followed to a T. The batter was nice and formed into logs quite easily, however, not that flavorful for a biscotti cookie, rather bland and didn't have that sweetness either. Sorry I won't be making again.

Bishop's Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
Talk about a chunky monkey colossal of a bread. It's thick, dense, sturdy and full. We liked the bread but felt I could have decreased the amount of chocolate chips by 1/2 that it calls for. Loved the fact of mixing the milk, baking soda, vanilla and juice from the maraschino cherries together....what a neat science trick in the kitchen to show my youngest when it grew and foamed up. She thought that was pretty amazing. I will make again but would totally decrease the chocolate chips. Not that I don't love chocolate but the amount with all the other additions was so chunky that in spots where the chips settled, the bread fell apart and hands were covered in chocolate. Tastes great with a pat of butter smeared on to the slices when served. TY Another note, I used 3 smaller loaf pans. But will note, don't use large loaf pans...the batter wont' bake all the way through and will burn on the outside before it gets completely done. Smaller loaf pans and or muffin tins are better.

Chocolate Kahlua® Brownies With Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
This recipe isn't a brownie. It's not even a brownie cake. It's a cake. I followed the recipe to a T. Do not understand why the butter had to be partially frozen at all because when the ingredients are mixed together thoroughly, the butter was a lumpy and still almost solid in the mixture. It didn't even incorporate fully with the rest of the ingredients. As simple as the recipe is. I didn't sub any ingredients nor make any changes and being that I love Kahlua baked into recipes because of it's lingering flavor and the overall richness it adds, there was way to much in this recipe for 1/4 of a cup to be utilized. It was pungent and overwhelming nor could you even taste even the coffee flavor either. There was not enough cocoa powder to even taste it's presence as well, let alone be a chocolate or a blonde style brownie. I am sorry, truly and utterly sorry for even having to review and rate it a one star. My apologies to the submitter.
