Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
This recipe worked out fairly well. I used dark brown sugar as opposed to light brown sugar and it gives the appearance that the cookies are burnt. They taste great either way, but you'll see more dissapear if they aren't "burnt looking".

Chocolate Rum Balls I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe! A friend had always said that her grandmother "baked her rum balls" and so when I realized this was essentially a "no bake" recipes, I was really surprised! I think 1/4 cup of liqour may have been too much, but my mother just couldn't get enough of these things! And they were just TOO easy to make. I think if I do make this recipe again I will try mixing other nuts, liqours, and toppings. Thanks for a fabulous recipe!!!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
This salsa is so flexible! You can use any combination of fruits (although those listed are fabulous) and you can definitely add some cool whip to this dessert. The cinnamon chips were easy to make and great to eat on thier own. Will definitely make again and again, esp. for family parties!

Pork Chop and Feta Skillet

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
This recipe was SOOO flavorful! I did make some small changes to the recipe, though. I marinated the chops in the lemon and spices for about an hour in the refrigerator. I also added minced garlic and oregano per another users recommendation. The feta never actually melted, but it definitely gave the pork a nice little flavorful punch. I'll definitely be making this again! It's great for a change of pace.

Baked Pear

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
My boyfriend and I enjoyed the pears, but I felt the recipe was lacking. The pears were still crunchy after an hour and the specified amount of honey and butter didn't give enough syrup to continue basting it through the cooking. The flavor was nice, but nothing too intense. The sauce that was left was REALLY good over ice cream and I'm going to try to make some kind of ginger, cinnamon syrup for ice cream in the future. I may make this again because it tasted pretty good, but only if I happen to have a few pears laying around. I wouldn't go out of my way to make this.

Super Easy Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
I was really pleased to find my chicken did not come out mushy! HOWEVER, I tried the honey mustard coating with the bread crumbs and not entirely thrilled with the taste. It may be the brand of croutons I crunched up and sprinkled on there. I would originally give this recipe a four, but in light of my modifications and the process was good in and of itself it gets a five. If I make this again, I may attempt my own croutons or stick with plain breading with the honey mustard coating. Overall, not a bad recipe at all!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
FABULOUS RECIPE. I made the same changes that others did and this pie came out perfect! It definitely is a very heavy dessert, but so worth the calories! If you're looking for a "feel good" dessert or a sweet treat for a girl's night in this is definitely it. I'll be making this again and again for family and personal get togethor! :)Thanks so much!

Strawberry Yogurt Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
This pie is great! I didn't layer the whipped cream on top of the frozen pie because I felt it would be better mixed in. I didn't have the freezer taste that others mentioned, but I also took the plastic inside from the pie crust and covered it with that. It worked out really well. It was like if you had froze a bunch of go-gurts and then put them in a grahm cracker crust. Soooo delish! :)

Lower Fat Banana Bread II

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
This recipe is amazing! First thing I baked in my new home and it turned out beautifully! I did use three bananas as suggested by others, and it was definitely needed. I also used a tsp or so of cinnamon because it sounded yummy. The bread came out very spongy and moist. REALLY impressed with myself. :-D Thanks for the great recipe!!!

Five-Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
This stir fry was awful. Halfway through my bowl of rice and stir fry I started feeling nauseous. I even followed the hints found in the reviews of this recipe. My boyfriend and I ended up eating leftovers instead. Will never make again and am wary of any stir fry recipe.
