Candied Yams

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
First thing is you must drain the yams or else they will come out to wet. Although I drained the yams there were still a few problems with them. I try adding cinnamon for flavor so that made them better however I found that there was way to much butter for such a small amount of yams and then I also found them way to sweet. I would suggest cutting back on both the butter and brown sugar and then also waiting to add the marshmallows because mine just melted right into the dish and when it came out it looked ugly. After baking the dish I added more marshmallows and let it sit for a few minutes on the counter until they melted. I dont think I will try this dish again because I was simply put off by it

OREO® and Fudge Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
This was very good. I followed the advice on doubling the recipe however I dont recommend doing this unless you have a lot of people to serve. I personally found it way to chocolately though and so next time I will try using a different kind of pudding for the filling and I will also double up on the cool whip since there wasn't nearly enough. Overall though it was very good.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
This recipe definately has some good flavor but I only gave it 3 stars because there is a lot of room for improvement. I love how basic the ingredients are but adding more will help with the taste. First it is kinda sweet so I would recommend using either a more tangy bbq sauce or just cutting out the brown sugar all together since its really not needed. Also cut the chicken into pieces before cooking because the meat tends to get dry in the center. I also added chopped onion and garlic and I would also try it with some pineapple. I served it over rice instead of a baked potato and prefer it that way. Good recipe but my variation is the only way I would eat it again.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
These cookies are wonderful. I carefully read other members reviews and the only change I made was added 1 teas. baking powder along with the baking soda and cream of tarter. They came out fluffy and soft. Very yummy! ***UPDATE** I made these again and due to diet changes I only have margarine in the house, I didn't think it would make much of a difference, boy I was wrong! It is VERY VERY important that you use only butter, no substitutes. Margarine turned them flat and crispy, despite that I use fresh baking powder & baking soda. Using butter keeps them soft & round.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
These enchiladas were GREAT! I covered half of each enchilada with red enchilada sauce and half green chili sauce. I also topped them with shredded lettuce and tomato. We ate them by themselves with no rice and got full halfway through. They have a restaurant appearance but a great homemade taste. I will never use another recipe again, this is by far one of my favorite meals yet. Thanks!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
I would have given these cookies a 5 for their taste but I gave them 4 stars instead because they didn't come out thick and chewy like the picture indicates. Instead they came out flat and crispy around the edges. I may have to check my oven but these sure are great cookies. Definatly put them in sugar before trying to roll them

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Very delicious. I wasn't exactly sure what to think of the texture because it seemed kind of greasy but at the same time it wasn't a nasty kind of greasy. These green beans were full of flavor and it's how I will cook my beans from now on. I also added some chopped onion with the butter, oil and garlic.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
So delicious. I have tried to make these into smaller cookies to get more out of them but for some reason they didn't turn out as well. They are really meant to be large. My favorite cookie by far.

Hello Dollies I

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
They have a really good taste but i wasn't completely satisfied with the crust. It seem to have gotten a bit mushy and wasn't holding well together even after it cooled down. I think next time i will try using a graham cracker crust that is usually used in cheesecakes.

Eggnog Blend

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
I changed the serving size to 11 servings and there was only 6 of us. The entire pitcher of eggnog was gone within an hour. I didn't add the rum or scotch since there were people who didn't drink at the party and instead i sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg on top. It was absolutely amazing.

Banana Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
I was a little iffy at first about trying a banana cream cheese pie because i had never heard of it before so i decided to try it. It tastes just the way it sounds, banana, and cream cheese. I didn't think that the banana and cream cheese went well together.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
They say that this sauce is so full of flavor but honestly I didn't taste much flavor. I had to add extra spices and to me it kind of tasted like a jarred spaghetti sauce. Next time i will probably use a different recipe.

Smoked Salmon Mousse

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
I have searched everywhere for that perfect pie crust and here it is. The dough is easy to work with, makes enough for 2 pies and comes out flaky and delicious. I used ice cold water and refrigerated the dough for 30 minutes after making it but that is something that should be done anyways when making any kind of pie dough.

Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Simply amazing! I added a few things to make it even better though. First I added about 2 teas. beef boulion. Then I finely sliced 1 medium onion, chopped 2 green onions, finely chopped about 2 teas. fresh ginger and also added black pepper. I also doubled the sauce part of the dish because it seemed like it wouldn't be enough.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
This was an alright frosting, I found it to be a little too sweet though so I would reccomend using it on something like shortbread, rather than sweeter goods.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
The BEST apple pie i have ever had and everyone else that i served it to thought so as well. For such a simply recipe it sure does have all the right flavors. I did make a few changes though. I love cinnamon in my apple pie so i added about 1 teas. of cinnamon and i also found that i only needed about 6 apples.

Italian Cream Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
I did not care for this cake. It does have great reviews and there isn't anything wrong with the cake itself but the flavors of it just didn't work with me. I used my own cream cheese frosting since this frosting was to sweet and had an interesting taste to it. I thought that because of all the egg yolks and buttermilk that it would be a hit but it was more of a miss
