Shrimp and White Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
Very good simplet salad...I think I should have used small shrimp then what I bought. Didn't think about that until after I mixed with the other ingredients...salad shrimp probably would have been best. Do let the dressing meld with the shrimp mix because when tasting it in the beginning, rather salty. But does go away when chilled for several hours. Made this for my daughter and she reall liked it. But did ask that I make again with more tomatoes too. As well as smaller shrimp.

Crazy Good BBQ & Grill Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
Thank you Celeste!!!! This was awesome. I ate some of the fat pieces of the london broil I made for hubby and it was delish. Rob says....he was in heaven. I set this up the morning before, was going to make it the same day, but it didn't work out that way. So it sat in the frig for about a day and a half roughly. And it was delish. My hubby shared with the children and it feed them well. TY again. It will be a marinade that I keep at hands reach with other meats I'd like to grill ;-) The flavors just popped. Wouldn't change a thing.

Hot Vegetable Buffet

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
I was pleased to make this recipe, simple enough....but hubby bought double the amounts of veggies I needed because he was looking forward to it. But let me say, hubby and I wouldn't let our kids have any of it when it was done, because it was way beyond edible. There was too much mayo, it curdled on the top of the dish in the baking process and never steeped through. Hubby and I couldn't get past the mayo mixture flavor.

Cranberry Parfaits

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
The best part of this recipe, was the graham cracker crumbles. There is something a miss in the recipe. I did just as the recipe stated, and I can't tell you the visual was rather gross and the taste was equally the same. 1 can of sweetened condensed milk & 1/2 cup of cranberry sauce does NOT thicken at all. And then add the whipped cream into the mix...it's not appetizing to look at and the taste is just of condensed milk. It was runny and flat. I even kept it in the frig 5 hours and didn't thicken up at all. So I made a 2nd batch the same thing. Sooo on the 3rd attempt and I added an entire can of cranberry sauce to the condensed milk, and 1 1/2 cups of whipped cream and it held better shape....tasted better...but as written...it was rather distasteful. The only thing that was flavorful was the graham cracker crumbles. I will NOT be making again. Sorry. No one in my house liked it. 5 stars for the crumble, zero stars for the cranberry mixture.

Easy Cake Mix Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Easy recipe, good ingredients...two bits of a so so issue. #1 Very crumbly...very. Makes sure to really work each little ball smooth before placing it on the cookie sheet and pressing with a fork. I used a small scooper and my 1st tray was very crumbly when I picked them up while still warm & after they were cooled. Totally work the cookie dough good. And possibly add either 1/4 cup more butter OR an additional egg for better binding. #2 even though there was 1 small 18 jar of peanut butter to the batch...I thought it needed just a tad more possibly 1/2 cup more. That's just me. But other then that.

Basic Hummus

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. Not everyone in my house agreed but my girls...the guys just didn't care for it. But as the girls out bet the guys...It's going to be a repeat offender on the app table. I stayed with in the ingredients but used a homemade garlic and herb infused olive oil. And I measured the liquid from the can of garbanzo beans, to know how much I need to add for my desired consistency. In a can of beans the liquid amount is roughly 2/3 cup, I used 1/3 cup when processing my batch in my Ninja unit. And used the smaller of the unit. I processed until I couldn't feel any bits of sesame seeds and to be quite honest, a little bit of bits isn't bad. You just need to know that every little bit when processing you need to make sure to scrap down you mix, or it will be left chunky and not desired smoothness your looking for. The nice thing about this basic recipe, is there is room for add-ins. I can totally see adding roasted red peppers and other flavors from my pantry and even left over veggies. But the true testament is that if you don't like hummus, you won't like the recipe. I love hummus and I think this is a great basic recipe as a base.

Black Forest Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Okay..this is going to sound soo not my norm review. But I honestly didn't get this. And meaning by this the directions. I bought 2-9in oblong angel food cake rather them making them and the serving size is a throw-off. The directions really really threw me because it says cut in half width-wise, and I took that at cutting straight down the middle at the 4 1/2 inch mark, standing it up and hollowing out the center, which to me, make 2 huge portions and not 16. Not getting how each portion makes 8 if it's stood up like that. I'm hoping that it should have been cut horizonally down the center in half and scooped out that way. Because the 1st one I had stuff everywhere and the filling didn't leave room for the pie filling and barely took a quarter of a can. The 2nd one which I assume was correctly done, still had more then half the pudding mix and was just left going hmm?? with questions. It should be so simple but wasn't and I didn't understand what bits I'd be filling a hole with the cake being soo small. Unless I was suppose to use a 9 inch ROUND angel food cake...then that would make better since. So recipe clarifications should be in order on this. Sorry my cake was 9 inch oblong not round. And assuming this indeed..not ever store has available 9in bundt style cakes available. My apologies if my review isn't correct. But wording is always a key factor when trying to make others recipes to the T.

Parmesan and Parsley Sausage Ball Appetizer

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
I've been looking at this recipe for quite some time. I was very tempted after someone else had made some sausage balls that looked devine. So taking the part of this recipe being faceless, I wanted to make them. I followed to a T. And instantly knew...to much baking mix. Not enough sausage and wow...loads of cheese(this after being in my mixing bowl and trying to mix all the ingredients). Still trying to make my way through the recipe, very thick to mix by hand(so others need to know, electric mixer with a dough blade)....it is very simple & easy recipe. The end result is where I had the most problems. At 25 minutes they looked done on top(used a broiler pan) so I pulled off and they were doughy and wet still on the bottom. Transfered & inverted the balls to a baking sheet and 10 minutes later...still looking undone. I broke one open and it appeared done, but was still dense, moist and doughy. With the hint of sausage flavor under the big biscuit flavor that was way more pronounced. This recipe needs to be modified big time. While my kids thought the "dumplings" as they called them were okay and filling, it didn't hit the mark over all with me and I was disappointed. There is obviously too much baking mix, not enough sausage & parsley. Not sure if there is too much cheese as well. Because the whole recipe was too dense. Sorry for a poor review, but it's my honest opinion. Won't be making the recipe as is...will play around with it until I get it how I feel it should be.

Spinach Artichoke Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012

Spicy Mac and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
This was a great way to use up pantry items...my family dug into it before I pulled out the sour cream. Even hubby had some and didn't say nothing about the tomatoes in it. One thing to remember as I didn't watch this like I should was making sure not to over cook your noodles or it will make the batch taste watered down. That was solely my doing. But with a quick adjustment with broth and milk it was fine. Will make again. TY Keri

Lots-A-Veggies Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
This was a decent recipe...not bad, very hearty. The only negative thing I could possible pick at was the over powering of marjoram. I don't feel it needed it at all. And that was my over all opinion. My family did like it very much.

Pecan Fondant Logs

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
While this recipe was totally hard to rate, I ended up with modifying to the hilt to make it work. The recipe as is....does NOT work at all. The flavor is good and sweet. However, you could not work the kneading process by hand, it was like epic sticky slime. And adding the pecans to it...was hard, the pecans wouldn't stick and rolling it into logs, wouldn't even hold up either. BUT thanks to my mom, who came in to visit while I was trying this recipe out to show me how it was suppose to be done. And thankfully I was able to make it work but adding at least an addition 1/2 pound of confectioners sugar to knead into the existing batch but it still dried if pieces were small, and that was fine. It better worked by kneaded the pecans into the batch verses trying to roll them on the outside. However, I ended up repurposing the leftovers into other ways of making candy. BUT as is....the recipe is more work, needs more confectioner's sugar.

Two-Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
Light and freshing to the taste buds. I found the over all dressing and season blend to be very mild. I used regular oil based Italian Salad dressing, but I think I will try the fat-free or zesty italian to bring on a little more zip. TY

Hot Chili Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
hmmm excellent! I can't say anything negative about this recipe. I loved every bit of it. What's really nice about this, is you can play with the heat in the can chili and salsa and make it mild or as hot as you want. Great pick-me-up recipe for those days you just want apps or even apps for dinner. As my family likes to do when it's really to hot to do some serious cooking or just to busy to have the time to stand in the kitchen. A really simple recipe that my entire family enjoyed! Thank you Jeanie...will add to my rotation of chips n' dips!

2-Step Beefy Taco Joes

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
This was decent, the flavor was great after you cooked on highfor a couple of minutes after all ingredients were well combined. The one thing I can say, is that when doubled, the recipe's consistancy is rather liquidy. I just thought it was rather liquidy but my kids found it to be just fine. However this can go either way, 1. either double the meat and leave all the rest alone OR 2. double the meat and X out the additional can of soup. But I didn't I made exactly to a T doubled as written and my kids said it was fabulous. But seeing how my kids were fine with the results..I guess all is good =)

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
I couldn't find one thing wrong with this recipe! And that's the truth. I prepped this recipe for several batches and found that I tweaked a step...didn't change any of the ingredients nor did I remove any ingredients. I did follow the process of steps. However, sifted my flour before making my well. I lightly beat my eggs and tempered them with the hot wet millk mixture, so that the eggs weren't thrown into the wet mixture and started cooking before the recipe was fully mixed. Then added the yeast to the mixture and THEN poured into the well...6 batches of rolls later. Every one of my batches were light, fluffy, flavorful and lightly brushed with butter as the exited the oven! I will make again...no more brown and serve store bought rolls EVER again. I made these into Parkerhouse shaped rolls and various other twisty shapes. Recommend Recommend!!! YUM!

Slow-Cooker Baked Bean Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
This was in the middle for us...meaning we were divided on the dish. While 2 of my girls liked it, my son, said..he couldn't get past the taste. My oldest said it was weird and I thought about the same... The flavor was, different, had a weird taste of baked beans with a black lash of cumin. However, I love all the ingredients individually but just wasn't my cup of tea. Even if i followed to a T. So sorry, I don't even know how to correct this, to make again. So there for, I regret in not making this again.

Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
When looking for veggies to use up, I came across this. I doubled the recipe exactly & I followed to a T in the beginning. But because I doubled the recipe...there was a lot of butter in this. I drained some of it before adding the soup and milk. The one thing I found after I mixed in the soup and milk...was that, there was more bell peppers then mushrooms and the flavor was the same.. Nice but not mushroom sauce because the peppers overwhelm the flavor the mushrooms. Plus it was extremely "soupy" or liquidy. So because I still had more then half a 16oz container left of sliced bellas, I used the excess butter I poured off in the beginning and saute'd the rest of the mushrooms and added them to the sauce. This helped with the overall flavor and allowed the recipe to be combined quite nicely with a package of gluten-free penne pasta. My girls loved loved it, as the end result. Will make again doubled and using an entire 16oz of mushrooms.

Ham Muffinwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
While this was a great flavored little treat, I found that for me personally there was too much ham in it...and it was slightly dry. With the amount of ingredients added to the muffin mix, it really needs have the moisture accomendated. But I'll make these again. Just lowering the ham down to 3/4 cup and increasing the milk to a 1/2 cup.
