Chicken Alfredo Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
I made this tonight and my family totally loved it! I had to make some changes because my kids are picky eaters, so I subbed peas and spinach for the mushrooms and broccoli. I also doubled the recipe! The brand of jarred alfredo sauce I used was Ragu and it was very good! I don't usually used jarred sauces, so I'll probably make the alfredo from scratch, next time, to cut down on the fat. This was a creamy, hearty, chicken and biscuit casserole that will be made often in my house!

Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
This was VERY good! I love the smokiness from the bacon. This dish has a nice sweet/savory balance. I made it as written except I added some grated parmesan cheese and served this over egg noodles as a main dish. I can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch.

Butterscotch Haystacks

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
After reading lots of reviews I decided to take the advice of other members! I only used half the peanut butter and I subbed pretzel sticks for chow mein noodles. I also subbed cranraisins for the mini marshmallows. I only made half the recipe because others said it makes alot...and they were totally correct. I made mine into wreath shapes for Christmas. Cutting the recipe in half, I still got 12 wreaths that were huge (3 1/2 " diameter). I also had a problem getting the wreaths to set firm. They were firm only while chilled. Within 10 minutes of being out of the fridge the haystacks wreaths fell apart when you picked them up. But the flavor and texture was very good...crunchy, salty and sweet.

Cheesy Thumbprint Appetizers with Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
This was very good! I made it exactly as written. The dough came together nicely in the food processor. I got 24 cookies out of this recipe using a small melon baller. For some reason the dough never browned around the edges. I even baked them for a few minutes longer. I couldn't leave them in the oven too long because the jelly would have totally dissolved! Next time I'll bake them much longer than 5 minutes before adding the jelly. Very tasty though!

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2012
I love this method of making popcorn because I can control the fat and salt! It's less expensive than buying pre-packaged microwave popcorn. I usually fold the bag once and add 1 staple. It never sparks in the microwave.

Vinegar Pie X

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
I never had a vinegar pie before and I was a little worried about how it would taste! The title didn't sound appetizing but I was curious so I decided to try it! This actually tasted very good! It reminds me of an apple pie without the apples...lol! Does that make sense? This pie should be called 'Spiced Custard Pie' because that's basically what it is! I made it exactly as written. The only problem I had with this recipe is that I had to make the filling twice because one batch wasn't enough for my deep dish pie crust. And the other problem was that the directions should state to serve the pie chilled because my pie oozed into a pile of pudding when I cut into it even though I waited for it to cool. Very tasty and interesting recipe! I would make it again!

Corn Flake Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
These macaroons were excellent! I made them exactly as written! But I did crush the cornflakes a little because they were very large flakes. The macaroons were crunchy and sweet. I love the addition of the cornflakes because it keeps the macaroons from being too coconutty. I only got about 20 macaroons from this recipe. I will definitely double the batch next time! Great easy recipe!

Fachamatta's Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
The video for this recipe is very helpful in seeing the color of the cooked potatoes and the thickness of the sliced mozzarella. I fried the potaoes in 2 batches because 3 lbs. of sliced potatoes crowded my large skillet. I also layered my potatoes, mozz and sauce according to the way iy was done in the video, which was different from the written directions. I used my own sauce because I already had some in my fridge. This recipe is basically a potato parmesan! I loved it! And I loved hearing the story behind the recipe! Thanks for sharing, Dogwood2 =)

Cream Cheese Sweet Almond Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I was looking for a bread that would be great with a cup of coffee in the morning so I decided to use this recipe but just add more sweetness. I doubled the brown sugar and honey and instead of putting the almonds into the dough I mixed them with 1/2 cup of brown sugar and about 1 tbls of corn oil and sprinkled it all over the top and sides of the dough before baking it. I added 1 tsp. of pure almond extract to the dough. This was exactly what I was looking for! It was very slightly sweet and crunchy on top and I love the tang from the cream cheese in the bread! I didn't do a second rise. I just let it rise for 1 hour in a greased 8"x8" baking dish with my almond/sugar topping, then just baked it at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes! My house was filled with the lovely aroma of sweet almond bread! Perfect! I will be making this ALOT!

Shot Glass Cream Cheese Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I love shot glass desserts! I often order them in restaurants, so I was happy to try this one! I tweaked it to become an 'Almond Joy' flavored dessert because I'm on an 'Almond Joy' candy bar kick lately! I only made 2 servings. I lightened up the cheese by using 1/2 cream cheese(fat free) and 1/2 ricotta cheese. I also added a few drops of almond and coconut extracts to get that 'Almond Joy' flavor. I also topped it with sweetened shredded coconut and chocolate chips. This was soooo good that I wished it was larger than a shot glass! YUM!

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
I never made a tuna casserole because the thought of eating warm, canned, tuna fish, with pasta, just didn't appeal to me. I finally decided to try it because I had 2 cans of tuna fish that were taking up pantry space for way too long! To my surprise, I loved it! I did make some changes for personal preference. I added 1 tsp. liquid smoke and 2 large cloves of crushed garlic. I love the slight smokey flavor with the tuna. I sauteed the onions and garlic in 1 Tbls of butter. I also used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom. I will definitely make this again! Thanks for helping me overcome my tuna casserole fear!

Banana Dogs

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
I was surprised at how good this was! I didn't add the raisins and I used white bread buns. I would make this again!

Mango Sorbet

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
I made this but had to make some alterations because I only had 1 mango, no simple syrup and not enough lime juice. I used 2 bananas to make up for some of the missing mango, as another member suggested...and I used 3/4 cup light corn syrup, as suggested by another member, instead of simple syrup because I didn't have enough sugar to make simple syrup. And I only had 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice. But it still worked fine because this was delicious! I can't wait to experiment with other fruits!

Stabilized Whipped Cream Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
This worked great! I love whipped cream as a frosting for cakes but it would always melt so quickly! The gelatin really does the trick! The whipped cream holds up really nicely using this recipe! Unfortunately my decoratings skills don't do this recipe justice! lol!

S'mores Pops

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2012
These were very good and so easy to make! I used melted chocolate chips instead of the 'Magic Shell' because that's what I had available. My family gobbled these up real quick! I will make these more often.
