Nana's Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
This was my first attempt at making BBQ sauce, & I was very pleased with the results! I had to make a few substitutions just b/c there were some ingredients I didn't have on hand. I used cider vinegar, garlic powder (instead of celery salt), lime juice instead of lemon, & I omitted the onion (can't stand them!) It was so easy & tastes better than most of the bottled stuff...I will definitely use this recipe again!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I have been wanting to try a minestrone recipe for awhile, & I am so glad I picked this one! It is a bit time-consuming to chop all the vegetables, but I would say it is well worth the effort. I ended up adding more chicken broth & tomato sauce, simply because I added extra kidney beans & some cannellini beans, & I like a lot of juice in my soup. I also used dried basil & oregano with good results. Because of my additions, we ended up with tons of leftovers (not a bad thing! :)) This is a very hearty & filling recipe, but very healthy. A new favorite!

Cookies 'n' Creme Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Oh my goodness I love this recipe! It turned out even better than I expected. I was skeptical because my previous attempts at fudge have been less than stellar, but this was awesome! I wanted to find a good recipe to use for Christmas gifts, so I tested this one out beforehand & brought the leftovers to work. My coworkers loved it! Now I plan on taking it to all my family gatherings over Christmas- it might just become one of my signature desserts :). I can't wait to try it with the mint Oreos- they are my favorite!

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
I have been dying to try this recipe for a long time, because I am obsessed with chai lattes, but it gets expensive buying them from coffee shops, & the mix that I like is not available at most of the stores close to my house. I whipped this up in about 10 minutes & immediately fixed myself a mug (with milk, so it was like a latte). I am very impressed! It tastes very close to the chai lattes I know & love. The only thing is, one of the spices is a little too overpowering for me, I'm just not sure which one it is (it may be the cardamom, which I am not very familiar with). Either way, it is a delicious recipe, & it's so nice to be able to make a big batch & have it around for all those chai cravings I have! I can't wait to share it with my mom, who also loves chai but is a diabetic, so she can make the sugar-free version. I also plan on giving some away as Christmas gifts, & I'm sure they'll be a hit! Thanks so much for the recipe!

Easy Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
These are great! I followed the suggestions of other reviewers & cut the baking powder back to 2 teaspoons, & cut the salt back a little as well. I've made these several times on Saturday mornings for my husband & have made minor additional changes (based on what I have on hand or what mood I'm in :)), but the basic recipe is very simple & delicious, especially for someone who doesn't keep pancake mix on hand.

White Almond Wedding Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
Delicious! And I love that the base is a boxed cake mix...makes it that much easier :). I frosted it with just a store-bought chocolate frosting & it was great! Can't wait to try it with other frostings/fillings/fondant :).

Spicy Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
Yum! I was so excited to try this recipe, & I was not disappointed! I'm a huge pickle lover, & these tasted really similar to one of my favorite kinds of pickles. The only change I will make next time is to probably eliminate the sugar completely. I only put in between 1-2 tablespoons, & I still wasn't a fan of the sweet taste. I guess I just like my pickles sour :). Overall, though, really great recipe!

Salmon with Dill

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This recipe is fantastic! I can't believe it took me this long to review it...I've been making it pretty much every week for a couple months :). I have never been a big salmon fan, but I started looking for different salmon recipes to try because I knew it was something we should be eating for the health benefits. After I tried this recipe, I stopped searching & it's now the only one I use. I make a couple of minor changes when I make it...I squirt a little bit of lemon juice on the salmon before seasoning, & instead of using the pats of butter, I just spray some "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray on it after the lemon juice, then add the seasonings, & then cook each fillet individually in a foil packet (keeps it moist & saves clean up!). It is a wonderful recipe that made a salmon lover out of me! :)

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
One word: delicious! This was such a simple dessert to make too. I whipped it up before I went to Bible study tonight & just stuck it in the fridge for an hour or so(which I highly recommend, b/c while it tastes wonderful warm or cold, it is MUCH easier to cut when chilled & set!) Everyone was really impressed & ate all of them! I definitely don't think you need all of the butter called for...I did as another reviewer suggested & just brushed some over the top. I also didn't use all of the cinnamon/sugar mixture, just sprinkled enough to lightly coat the top. I will definitely be making this treat again & again!

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
Yum! This recipe is great. I made a few small changes...dipped in milk instead of butter, left out the thyme (didn't have any), added a little garlic powder, & used a little less Parmesan cheese. I dipped them in homemade BBQ sauce & they were delicious! My husband didn't even dip his in anything & he loved them :). I definitely recommend the trick of cooking them on a wire rack, because I did mine like that & they were perfectly crispy!

Yummy! I had some chicken in the fridge & wanted a quick recipe to make for dinner last night, so I picked this one. I'm glad I did! The chicken came out very flavorful. I'll definitely make this one again!

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
These carrots were delicious! I had my parents over for dinner the other night, & I wanted to try a new side dish. I love carrots, but for some reason I never think to make them. But now that I have this recipe, I'll make them regularly! My parents, my husband, my brother & I all loved them. Thanks for the recipe!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
This is a great dip. I made it for my husband's birthday party, & it was a huge hit! I left out the onions, peppers & lettuce, & it was great! Thanks!

Cream Cheese Pickles

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
These were a pleasant surprise! 5 stars for ease of preparation & taste that I think would appeal to a lot of people (provided that they like pickles, of course!) I made these this past weekend as a last-minute appetizer to add to my spread for a baby shower I hosted for a friend, & they got eaten up! I used both roast beef & ham & I thought both were yummy, although I think roast beef was preferred by more people. Definitely a simple, no-fuss appetizer that's great for parties or snacking!

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
I lost my old recipe for these cookies & I wanted to make them so I decided to try this recipe. It tastes just the same as the ones I used to make (as far as I can tell haha), & everyone loves them! Thanks for a great recipe!

Creamy Veggie Fondue

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
This fondue turned out great! My husband's grandmother gave us a fondue pot as a wedding gift, so we had her over for dinner to try it out for the first time. This recipe was a hit with all 3 of us. The only changes I made were to use a little less cayenne pepper (I wasn't sure if our guest likes spicy things) & added a little more milk to thin it out. Thanks so much...we'll definitely use this recipe again & again! :)

Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe! I made it twice for Thanksgiving (for my family & my husband's family), & it was enjoyed by everyone. My dad & brother even said it was the best dessert I've ever made (and I'm always the one in charge of dessert)! It proved to be a bit time-consuming, what with having to make the pumpkin butter & all, but I think the outcome was worth it.
