Caramel Pecan Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
It was easy to make and they turned out wonderfully. They look great and taste great. I followed the recipe exactly and it made 40 cookies! I was surprised. I used the smaller sized rolos though that you can buy in a bag so maybe I was using less dough? They look just as big as in the picture though. Freezing the rolos for an hour or so beforehand is a good idea - I did this and no caramel leaked out.

Egg-Free Bonbon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
With a few changes, this was great! They look so pretty too. I chopped up cherries and added them to the batter. My family likes nuts so I added walnuts as well. Before putting them in the oven, I mixed sugar and walnuts together and dipped the up side of the balls to the mixture. They look very festive! :)

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
This was my first time making stuffed peppers and my family loved them! My sister wished I added cheese to the stuffing though. I guess it all depends on your personal preference. I also made 3/4 of a cup of rice instead of 1/2 a cup, and it still only filled 4 peppers. I was using large green peppers though and wanted them to be really full.

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
It was really runny so I had to add extra flour. My family said it was too rich. It was okay, but too rich to eat too much of it. I didn't have a full cup of sour cream so I added a little miracle whip and used mozzarella cheese instead of parm.

Cranberry Nut Bread II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
FANTASTIC! A couple changes: 1/4 cup applesauce instead of butter, 1 cup pecans, 1 cup craisins (poured boiling water over the craisins for 15 min prior to using). I put a foil tent over and removed it during the last 7 minutes of cooking. It looked & tasted amazing! Thanks chef! Update: I wanted to make this again but I only had about a half a cup of craisins, so I made half the recipe (with the aforementioned changes) and instead of orange juice (didn't have any), I used diet cranberry pop and made 12 pink muffins that look so cute!

Crunchy Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
I must be an idiot or something, but I did not find this recipe easy to make AT ALL! Well, everything went well up until the chocolate came into play. I used 2 cups rice krispies like suggested, and I put the mixture in the freezer for 20 min before making the balls, then I made balls, stuck toothpicks in them, and froze them for another 20ish min, THEN I tried melting the choc with a couple teaspoons of butter instead of shortening, and boy oh boy was that ever a mistake - the chocolate burnt and was all clumpy and weird! So I melted more chocolate without butter, then it was such a challenge to cover the balls, such a mess, the toothpicks would break off and the balls would get deformed. They look cute now that all is said and done, but it was messy and stressed me out!! lol Thanks for the recipe though, mm :)

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.

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.

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!

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.

Tater Tot Casserole III

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.

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 :)

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.

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!

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.

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!!

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!
