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!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
Magnificent recipe!!! :) The blend of onion and garlic with the avacado flavor is so amazing! I made a packet guacamole one time before this... never again! It was a complete waste of an avacado! I'm adding this to my repetoire of recipes... love it! Thanks so much!

Honey Garlic Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
OH MY GOSH! What a fun and easy recipe!!! Once you add the baking soda to the garlic and honey mixture it's like a volcano! I was so skeptical when I saw that, but I figured "Hey, I'm halfway-I might as well finish" and I'm so glad I did!!! This was the best ribs I've ever had! My hubby felt the same way! I think I may end up using this for Father's Day on Sunday. Thanks soooo much for this crazy, but yummy recipe!!! The only suggestion I have for those who said it has no flavor is increase the garlic by about a little less than a clove...helps bring out the tang of the mixture. Thanks again!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Used this cake recipe for a bridal shower cake I made. Rave reviews all around! I was really impressed with how level the cakes were (I made two nine-inch round cakes) and how moist it seemed. I would like to cut down on the cup of oil some how, but I haven't quite figured that out yet. Either way, its going in my recipe book! Thanks a bunch!

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!!!

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.

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!

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
This is an awesome, awesome recipe. Even just taste testing the batter, I can easily say it beats any pumpkin pie or cake that I've ever had! (But, don't tell my aunts that) I made adjustments similar to many reviewers. 30oz can of Libby's Pumpkin Pie mix...I don't think it would have been as tasty otherwise. Cut down the sugar to 1.25 cups...I think brown sugar would have been really good here. Maybe .75 cups each. I added a little extra splash of vanilla because I didnt think it could go wrong and I added a teaspoon of pumpkin spice to the mix and sprinkled cinnammon on top before I baked them. I made mine in greased and floured 8x8 pans (they won't really be bars...more like slabs). DO NOT use a different icing. I used the Cream Cheese Frosting 2 on this site and was sadly dissapointed. Give the icing recipe on here a try, I wish I had!

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!!!

Raspberry Ribbons

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
My husband can't keep his hands off of these! They came out just adorable and were very yummy. I would recommend making it a little wider then the recommended (2.5 inches) because they tend to look like bricks once you slice them. Otherwise, I was very pleased with these. I think I may try using some melted chocolate in place of the glaze.... raspberry and chocolate...mmmmm. :-) Thank you!

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I wish I could give this recipe more stars... it was a breeze to make, so easy to work with and I'm eagerly awaiting a finished product. I'm not concerned though! This is going to be my go to gingerbread recipe every year! It's very spicy, traditional gingerbread. The only thing that would have made this recipe better is a recommendation or recipe for decorators icing. Thanks so much!!!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I'm not a big fan of eggs, but the garlic and cheese make this a total winner! I didn't have the Feta, but will definitely give that a try next time cause it would make this a six-star dish! Next time, I will bake the crust for a few minutes before putting the mixture inside - to keep the crust from getting soggy. Otherwise, FANTASTIC. Part of my recipe repetoire now!

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!

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! :)

Garlic Spread

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
not a bad basic recipe. I added parsley, dill, and basil to the cream cheese and butter mixture. I'm loving it! I've never attempted a dip before and this was definitely a great start! Thank you so much! I'll definitely be flaunting this at parties this summer!

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
My fiance loved this recipe, but I wasnt as impressed. It's much better than what I usually make for a scampi so that's why this gets four stars. The garlic that the recipe calls for is NOT enough for the entire dish. If your looking for a tomato-y garlic-y scampi, this isn't it as written. I would recommend adding at least another teaspon (if not more) as you reduce the tomato, wine, basil mixture. The taste is just about right otherwise and I did not have other reviewers problem with getting the sauce to stick, although I did NOT use the olive oil in the water. I really liked the chunky tomatoes and smooth, wine tasting sauce otherwise. My kitchen smelled very much like a good italian restaurant!! It would have been perfect with that extra garlic, otherwise. Thanks for the recipe!

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
This recipe is very, very good, but... I think it lacks a bit of kick! I like very flavorful and depthy food and this just doesn't quite meet the mark. Don't get me wrong, I've made it at least twice since I found the recipe, but it's just missing something. Maybe some chilli powder and extra garlic? I'm not quite sure. Anyway, good recipe to start, but don't be afraid to try adding different flavors!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Overall, this recipe is really quick and easy. I am not a big fan of the beer....if I could do it again, I would leave out the beer and amp up the spices. It came out a little bland....add in some red or green peppers, too. Hubby really liked it...I was just happy it was edible :)

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I wasn't really impressed by this dish. I made it almost exactly to the specs (I added a little more cumin than called for) and just felt like it tasted like nothing but sour cream and black beans. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it, but it was just "meh" for me. I used Old El Paso enchilada sauce, so I thought that if anything would save it...but it was very blah. To kick it up a bit, I would recommend some serious flavor upgrades if you are considering making this...much more cumin and corinader, add some chili powder, and a little onion flavoring. I don't think this will be part of my regular rotation (unless DH requests it), but it was something new to try. Thanks anyway!
