Bacon Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Update #2: tried this again using 2 cups flour, 4 cups shredded cheese, 1 egg and a big of eggbeaters, 3/4 cup milk + 1/4 cup veg oil, and 3 massive sausage links & it worked out great!! Update: I can't believe this recipe hasn't been more popular - I made a batch and gave some to the neighbours and they went nuts. Everyone thinks I'm an incredible chef now haha. Please take some of my changes into consideration, especially if you like cheese! The second time I made this, I made it the same as the below listed changes except instead of onion powder I used 1/2 cup diced onion and 6 slices of bacon rather than 4. My family loves them! -- I wanted to just do half the recipe but it ended up making 10 muffins for me. I used 1 cup flour, 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (my parents are cheese lovers), 4 bacon strips and threw in a bit of real bacon bits, 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk & the 2 tablespoons veg oil, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, some salt, some garlic powder, some paprika, some onion powder; only baked for 13-14 min. Thanks!!

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Here's what I did: crunched up fudgeo cookies (2 layers from the bag - put them in a ziplock bag and mashed them all up), made a layer using them in a 9 x 9 pan, but that pan in the freezer and took my homemade ice cream out of the freezer at that time so it would soften a little bit, then I only had 1/2 cup of chocolate sauce so I added half a leftover milk chocolate bunny rabbit from Easter and melted it in the microwave for 1 minute -stirred all that, stirred in 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter. Left everything for about 20 min so the choc/pb mixture had time to cool a bit. Then I took my pan out of the freezer, put on a layer of ice cream, layered the pb/choc mixture on top of the ice cream, topped with about 2 cups of dream whip (just like cool whip basically), added on a few more crunched up fudgeos to the top and now it's in the freezer. It looks delicious and I can't wait to eat it. Just thought I'd share how I compensated for a lack of ingredients! Update: it ended up being delicious!

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
The onion pieces definitely burnt but it was fine - they still tasted great. I marinated them for a couple hours and then put them on tin foil sprayed with pam. I think the temp or the heating time, maybe both, is off. Mine definitely didn't take 40 min and I stirred them after 15 min. I also added a touch of pepper, salt, & italian seasoning. Yum!

Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Super easy & my dad loved it. I had half a can of raspberry pie filling left over from a layer cake. I made the same amount of filling and put half on the top and half on the bottom. It seemed to be just enough. Thanks!

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
Terrific! I browned the turkey in a skillet with chopped carrots, onion, green & orange peppers. I only used 1 cup of water and added a can of tomato paste which made it a great consistency. Served over penne noodles with some shredded cheese on top. I didn't have any cumin. It made quite a lot.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Terrific :) I put the fries in a large tupperware and mix them all up with the seasonings/oil, then place them on an aluminum foil-lined baking tray, bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes - flip them and then do another 15-20 mins. Thanks!!

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
I was really nervous about this recipe after a few reviews, however I'm delighted with the outcome. A few comments: my oven has a tendency to overheat (it's really old) but I still baked them at 400 degrees and it was fine, although they were done after 8 minutes. Secondly, the batter was really mushy and I thought it was going to be difficult to work with so I refrigerated it for a few minutes before putting cookie balls on the pan and that made a big difference. I flattened them slightly and they looked really mushy and weird going into the oven, but they came out beautifully. I only had 1 banana but it was really big and I think it was just under a cup, so I tossed in a bit of applesauce (probably about 1/4 of a cup or a little more). I also used margarine instead of shortening. I separated the dough in half and added raisins to one half and semi-sweet chips to the other half. Both turned out great! I also added a dash of vanilla extract just out of habit. Thanks for a fantastic recipe.

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Great recipe! I added a can of corn and used a larger can of sliced stewed tomatoes as opposed to the diced tomatoes. I also added cheese to the mixture. I made one small pan with the tortilla chip topping and one without because I was afraid after reading some negative reviews, however, my family loved the tortilla topping - my parents both went back for seconds. I only baked it for about 17 minutes. They will try the dish without the tortilla topping another time but they definitely enjoyed it with so you can't go wrong either way I don't think! :) Thanks for a delicious recipe.

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
I baked 2 8 inch cakes and 6 cupcakes - the layers baked beautifully and smell so delicious, although I have yet to try the cake because it is for Mother's Day. I filled the pans about 3/4 full - this was just the right amount. I greased the pans with Pam and used a little flour on the bottom and had no trouble removing the cakes from the pan after 10 minutes. I used Rich Chocolate Frosting for the outside and a raspberry jam pie filling for the middle, as per my Mom's favourite tastes. I will edit my review after it is tasted on Sunday :) Thanks Sandy!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Hmm so I just realized that I forgot the baking soda but...I halved the recipe, added 2 tsp baking POWDER, 1 TABLEspoon (instead of teaspoon) of vanilla....and I tossed in some mini M&Ms in addition to the chipits. They turned out very delicious. I took them out after 11 minutes and that seemed to be the perfect time. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!

Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Awesome!! I've made this twice nw because my mom LOVES them - usually my dad is the tart fanatic but she was crazy about this recipe. Following changes were made: added a dash of vanilla, 3/4 cup pecans in half the mixture and 3/4 cup raisins in the other half rather than raisins/other nuts. Also, I only had to bake for 15-17 minutes. Thank for the fabulous recipe - it is soooo easy.

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Easy & got rave reviews from the family. Added some spices to the beef and some sauce to the bottom of the pan. Could use more noodles next time. Might've been my fault!

Lattice Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
OMG...loved this! I don't eat meat but I made it for my parents because my dad always loved Swiss Chalet's chicken pot pie...and wow, even my mom who isn't a fan of pot pie said it was very yummy! I used cream of chicken soup, some canned potatoes, sauteed some carrots & onions with the chicken, steamed some broccoli, added drained canned corn...and I think that's it. I used the cheese too. It was so easy. I used a little over one thing of pillsbury crescent rolls and didn't make the lattice, just a pie crust.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
It's like a standard carrot cake frosting. I added it on pumpkin spice cookies and my sister said they tasted like carrot cake - hey that's fine with me! My dad who hates cream cheese even liked it! Oh, but I only used 1 - 8 oz. cream cheese, 1/4 c. butter, and 2 c. powdered sugar, 2 tsp vanilla. Thanks a lot :)

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
Fabulous! With some changes...Used diced hashbrowns, 1 lb ground beef, green pepper, red pepper, yellow pepper, onion. Used half the sour cream & added helluva dip, used cream of mushroom & onion soup, used Italian seasoning but no garlic powder/salt, added pepper, added no butter to the mixture, used 1/4 cup butter with the corn flakes and also topped with tater tots, did not use Parmesan cheese or paprika. Family loved it and it really wasn't that greasy.

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
It seemed way too creamy...and I used 9 eggs. Is it possible to "over stir" egg salad? lol Maybe it was my fault. Still yummy, thanks! Update: I found it actually was better after being in the fridge for a bit; it helped solidify the mixture.

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Hmm, I don't really know how to feel about this. I may change my review when my neighbours and parents give me some feedback. It was kinda hard to work with, and I definitely had to add more milk. I haven't spread it over my brownies yet but I am afraid it will ruin them / rip them apart because it's pretty think. I think I'll toss it in the microwave to make it smoother before putting it on the brownies. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Thanks for the terrific recipe! I omitted the salt, adding Italian seasoning instead. I also added 1/2 of a chopped onion. Although I'm a vegetarian, this one got rave reviews from my picky parents! My mom did mention that she couldn't really taste the cheese though, so if you're a cheese lover you may want to add some more of that. I was toying with adding some chopped green pepper - next time! I was worried about the sauce after hearing it may be too sweet - but it wasn't at all. I thought it was perfect and they had no complaints. Yum.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Okay so...I read pretty much EVERY review so that I could get these right. No one's tried them yet because they're currently cooling, but they do look delicious. I was originally planning on making 2 8 x 8 pans, so I doubled all of the ingredients, adding just 3 eggs - but there was definitely not enough mixture for two pans, so I used one and made a very dense brownie. Since it's supposed to taste like cake I figure that'll be fine. I also made Tianne's frosting recipe (from this web site) and will add it once they've cooled. I also added just under a package of semi-sweet chocolate chipits, a bit over 1 cup of peanut butter, about 1/4 cup cocoa powder and only 1 3/4 cup flour.
