Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
This recipe gets 5 stars because it really is easy. They are also quite yummy. I didn't have almonds so I used pecans and I also added a half of a cup of bran to up the fiber a bit. They are super chocolatey. I took someone's suggestion and put my can of milk in a bowl of hot water while I assembled the rest of the ingredients. It was much easier to pour and incorporate. I will make these again!

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
If I could give it more stars, I would. This was so easy and also so fabulous! I served it on toasted wheat rolls with monterey jack cheese and put the pepperoncinis on the sandwich as well. My hubby gave it two thumbs way up and my kids loved this as well. Would make a great/easy dish to serve to guests at a casual get together.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
Great when you want something chocolate and fast. I added a dash of salt before cooking to help bring out flavors. I also added 1 T butter along with the vanilla after it was cooked to make it a little fuller tasting. Super easy.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
This recipe was very easy and very tastey as well. I used applesauce instead of butter in the muffin itself and they came out moist and tender. (I never mix muffins more than absolutely necessary.) I also added chocolate chips because, well, I love chocolate. I tweaked the topping a bit by adding more flour and some white sugar and leaving out the cinnamon. (All I had was spreadable margarine so I added the extra flour and sugar in an attempt to keep the topping from sinking into the muffin...it worked beautifully.) The kids gobbled these up.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This recipe was easy, and very yummy. I used butter flavored vege. shortening, instead of the butter. I cut the salt to 1/2 teaspoon, upped the chocolate chips to 1 1/2 cups, and added 1/4 teaspoon baking powder. I mixed the dough by traditional bowl and spoon method (not in a mixer) and let the dough chill for the time it took to preheat the oven (about 10 minutes). I baked them on ungreased fiberglass baking mats.I had no problem with the cookies spreading. I'll make these again.

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
Couldn't believe how well this worked and how fabulous it tasted! I used Splenda and it came out perfect. I made the strawberry and even my kids (who don't like strawberry ice cream) gobbled it up.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
This has the consistency and flavor that cream cheese frosting should have. I make this for my awesome carrot cake and it is enough to frost 3 layers, top, and sides, as well as adding a bit of decoration. Simply the best recipe out there!

BAKER'S® ONE BOWL Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
These could not be easier to make or more delicious to eat. They keep extremely well in a plastic bag. Sometimes, when I'm feeling fancy, I dunk the bottoms in melted chocolate and cool on waxed paper. They are elegant enough to serve at a dinner party.

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Our's came out a little thick but I think adding a bit more lemon juice would have done the trick. It could not have been easier to make!

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This has been my no-fail pie crust recipe for more than 20 years. Simple and excellent. I use butter flavor shortening and the coldest water possible.

Tzatziki Sauce II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
The only thing I did differently was to add a splash of lemon juice. Yum! Make it ahead as it gets better with time. At least a couple of hours or overnight if you can make it a day ahead.

Good recipe. I have made this with the granola and then also made it subbing oats for the granola when I was out and it was good either way.

Kris' Lentil Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
I just wanted to add a note to be more specific about the ingredients. I'm one of those cooks that seldom follows a recipe exactly and I like to leave room for experimentation. However, for those of you saying that it's not flavorful enough, I might add a few suggestions: I use hillshire farms brand polska kielbasa made with pork, turkey, and beef. (I don't think the "all beef" is as flavorful.) Also, be sure to use the leaves of the celery...they add a powerful punch of flavor. Also, don't skimp on the bay leaves or the simmering time. The lentils don't take that long to cook, but you want to extract the flavor out of the bay leaves, and that's what takes the time. Also, this is ALWAYS better the next day. I leave the bay leaves in (probably the reason) and nobody has any trouble eating the leftovers. (Or, you can just make it a day ahead and then reheat it if you like.) Anyway, enjoy and use the ingredients that you like. -Kris

Perfection! The flavors of the garlic and thyme went all through the meat. Can't do any better than this!

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
First off, DO NOT substitute margarine for the butter! The water content in most margarines will not work in this recipe. Also, I had to microwave for about 3 minutes after I added the sugar to get it fully combined with the butter. I also used 40 crackers and had plenty of topping. (They were also salted because it's what I had.) This candy is the bomb! It was easy and so yummy I can't stay out of it.

April's Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I needed something last minute to take to a party. I had everything this called for so I mixed it all in the food processor. I did alter it a tiny bit. Since the recipe didn't specify what size of a jar for the roasted red peppers, I used about 1/2 cup. One of my blocks of cheese was 1/3 less fat. Also, I left out the worcestershire because I was in too big of a hurry to find it in my cubbard. I also threw in a teaspoon of dried parsley (more for look than flavor). The consistency of mine came out to be a very spreadable cheese that wouldn't hold shape so I just served it in a pretty dish. Everyone loved it! I will definitely make this again. It was delicious.

Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
I think the recipe should have mentioned that after you make the butter, you need to "wash" it to remove all of the butter milk, or it will spoil. My mom taught me to wash butter by draining off the milk liquids, then running COLD water into the jar and pressing the butter with the back of a spoon to release pockets of butter milk trapped inside of the butter. It takes several washings to get it completely clean. If you are eating all of the butter within a short amount of time, washing is not so crucial.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This is the cookie I've been looking for all of my life! Crispy, chewy, chocolatey goodness. I added the 1/2 tsp of cream of tarter and they did crackle on top perfectly, but I've not made it without that addition so I can't say as if it made a difference. I make a ton of cookies and my family was simply blown away by these. You really are missing out if you haven't tried these.
