Cake Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
I've made many, many batches of these over the years for weddings, showers, Christmas, etc. Yes, it's time consuming, but here are my tips to make it as painless as possible: * After you cook the cake, cool it completely in the fridge before you break it up, then mix in the frosting when it's cold. It doesn't get as gooey and messy this way. * When rolling the balls, lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. It will still build up and you'll have to wash your hands several times during the rolling, but it helps a lot. * Put the rolled balls on paper plates, about a dozen per plate. Stick a toothpick in the center of each ball and freeze completely before rolling. Take the plates out one at a time to dip. They defrost really quick and if they sit out it makes a mess in your chocolate. Dip the balls, wait a minute or two, and when the dipping chocolate has set, pull the toothpick out. It will leave a tiny little hole, very easy to cover. Pull it straight up or it will break off inside. * I have made these as much as a month ahead of time and frozen them and they were awesome. You would never know they had been frozen. Good luck!

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
These were very good but a lot of trouble for so few cookies. If I make them again I'll try pressing it into a pan and cutting them into squares. It just takes so long rolling them. But I do love the consistency. The best shortbread I've made.

Swedish Nuts II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Very good and easy. I was using pecans from my pecan tree and didn't know how much a pound was. It's about 3 1/2 cups in case anyone else needs to know!

Tasty Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Another recipe I can't believe I haven't reviewed! I've made this over and over again. They are so flavorful and actually healthy! I use Sriracha hot chili sauce, and you only need about a tablespoon unless you like it really spicy! I serve them on wholegrain sandwich thins. Delish! Oh, and I double it so we have leftovers. Definitely try this one!

Fiery Pork Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this recipe earlier. I've made it many times. I had given up making pretty much any pork recipe because I dried it out every time. This comes out moist and delicious. I always make about 2 pounds of pork so we have leftovers. Great recipe!

Shrimp and Asparagus Fettuccine

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
This was very good, but I think you need to either double the shrimp and asparagus or half the fettuccine. They got lost in all the noodles, but the flavor was delicious and I will make it again with that change.

Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
These were easy and sooo good! I used lean turkey because that's what I had. Couldn't find the garlic cream cheese, so I used regular light cream cheese and added a little extra garlic powder. These were moist and didn't need any sauce. I will definitely make them again. Thanks, Raquel!

Cajun Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Oh, this was so rich and wonderful. I used no-boil lasagna noodles, just put a little Alfredo sauce in the bottom of the pan first. I covered it with foil for the first 30 minutes because I was afraid it would get too brown. It was a total hit. Will definitely make again!

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
This was a hit for my guests! I used 8 ounces of crab meat and a pound of crawfish tails and it was awesome! I also used shredded Italian blend cheese instead of just Parmesan. I mixed it up and warmed it up in the microwave, then transferred it to a small crock pot for the party. Delish!

Mock Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
These were so chewy it made my jaw hurt eating them. The flavor was OK and they're easy enough to make, but I recommend making them in a larger pan so they're not so thick and will be easier to eat.

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I've made this a few times now. It is so easy and delicious. I only used 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne and it was just the right amount of zingyness. I've used both raw shrimp and added cooked shrimp at the very end and couldn't tell a difference. This one will be in my regular rotation.

Buffalo Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
These were really good. I used olive oil in the bottom of the pan instead of cooking spray to be sure they crisped up and it turned out perfect. I cut them into strips and served over a salad. Yummy!

Dressed-Up Broccoli

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
We loved this recipe. It's easy and quick. I like my broccoli not crispy but not mushy, and this recipe cooked it just right. I will make this often.

Byrdhouse Marinated Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Oh, this was soooo good! I used more green onions because we love them. It's an easy, refreshing summer recipe.

Yummy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I don't have a good track record with pork chops. They always come out dry. But I wanted something different so I gave it a shot. They turned out pretty good. My chops were an inch thick and I wanted to be sure they got done, so first I seared them for a few minutes per side in olive oil. I whisked into the dressing about a teaspoon of corn starch. I put the seared chops over onions, poured the dressing over and baked them at 350 for almost an hour, covered. To me, it wasn't anything to write home about, but my husband loved them so it's all good.

Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I made this as the icing to go in peanut butter cake balls and it worked out perfectly. Yum! I will definitely make it for the cake balls again and other things too. It was easy and fast.

Fish Tacos with Honey-Cumin Cilantro Slaw and Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
These were sooo good! The slaw was a little hot for me, but my husband said it was perfect, so if you like it hot, go for it! I used cod because that's what I had bought. I will make this one again for sure.

Heavenly Pink Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
This is so yummy, I can't quit picking at it in the fridge. I chopped the cherries up first so they would be evenly dispersed in the salad. I don't like to get a big ol' piece of cherry in a bite. I also added a small box of instant French vanilla pudding. I mixed it in first with the whipped topping. Perfecto!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
This is the best meatloaf. I used a 1.3-pound package of lean ground turkey and 1 pound of extra-lean ground beef. I also used 2 packages of the onion soup mix. This makes yummy meatloaf sandwiches with the leftovers. Highly recommend this one!

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Made these to go with the ham for Easter. It was delicious and so easy! I couldn't quit picking at them when I was cleaning up the kitchen, even though I was stuffed!
