Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I love the smooth texture and how this icing looks when it sets. The flavor is nice also, but sometimes I use vanilla instead of the almond extract.

Morning Glory Muffins II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I made these because I had a some dates to get rid of, and just happened to have the rest of the ingredients on hand, too. These were good, but not spectacular. I followed the recipe exactly, except didn't peel my apples (nor did I notice the peels once all chopped up!). Using a food processor makes these a lot quicker. I grated everything first, then because it's such a course grate I put the apple and carrots in and pulse chopped it a few times. To me these are really more like not as sweet carrot cake, and I prefer them with a very thin layer of cream cheese frosting. I don't know how some people only got 12 muffins from this recipe. I filled regular muffin cups 3/4 full with batter and got 21 muffins! I do like recipes that use lots of fruits/veggies like this because my kids like these types of breads and otherwise wouldn't eat half the stuff in these. My four year old ate 3 of these in one day and wanted more! Also, these were better a day later, staying moist and seemed more flavorful.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This was ok, and has potential. It was very salty for my taste. The leftovers were inedible because of the strong flavor. Perhaps that's from the Parmesan and the artichoke marinade. I may try this again, but I would use cream cheese instead of the Parmesan.

Cranberry Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I used leftover homemade whole cranberry sauce (with grapes), and just one package of onion soup mix. I also threw these in the Crockpot, which I discovered requires adding some water so that all the liquid doesn't cook away (at least 1/2 cup water). I like the flavor of the sauce - fruity, tangy, and sweet - and it's great over mashed potatoes. I use a similar recipe for pot roast, which calls for ketchup instead of French dressing. I have to say I prefer this sauce on the beef rather than the chicken though.

Festive Fall Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This was just ok for me. I really wanted to like this, but I'm afraid the orange in the cranberry sauce was a bit overpowering. I used mayo, but the sweetness and the orange really stood out making it taste like it was made with miracle whip (which I'm not fond of at all). I will try this again, but will use my own cranberry sauce (Martha Stewart's cranberry grape compote!) and maybe add some chopped onion.

Cider Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
Definitely quick and easy. Maybe I'm just not a fan on fondue. I did add a little garlic, but generally it was just bland.

Faux Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
I guess this just wasn't to my tastes. It was ok, but we ended up cutting up the chicken and using it in other things because we weren't crazy about the flavor.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
These were quick and easy to make, and definitely satisfy the sweet tooth. I did everything in the microwave. Melted the butter first, which softened the peanut butter well enough to make it easy to mix. Then used the same bowl to make the topping in the microwave. Taste pretty darn close to a Reeses for me - I did use 1 cup semi-sweet and 1/2 c. milk chocolate chips. I'm wondering for the people who mention the "butter" taste, if they are using real butter or margarine? I used real butter. They are crumbly and I will store them in the fridge, but I don't mind that. Next time I will try putting the graham crackers in the food processor to get the crumbs super fine. I had a couple extra Tbsp. of crumbs so just tossed them in rather than wasting them.

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
Close to Red Lobster biscuits, but not exactly. These do seem a little heavier, so I may try the Jiffy biscuit mix others suggest. I added a pinch of salt to the topping as someone else suggested, and that did seem to improve them.

Steak on a Stick

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
Will stick with the Asian Beef Skewers on this site. This just tasted like straight soy sauce, too salty with no real flavor.

Passion Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
These are just ok for me. Of course, my peanut butter loving child loves them. I like the crunchiness of the oatmeal topping. They were really quick and easy to make, but flavor-wise they were just lacking for me. I would not make these again.

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
Made this for a July 4th potluck and it got rave reviews. I added an extra avocado and used a whole 16oz bag of corn, and used slightly less oil (1/3 c) per other reviews. This is good so many different ways - by itself, on salad, with grilled chicken, on chips. I agree that it's not very good the next day - it loses some of it's color and ends up looking mushy and less appetizing. Could definitely see adding a little extra cayenne pepper for some extra zing.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
Ran out of the ranch mix, so threw this together in a pinch. I didn't have dried chives, used 2 fresh chopped green onions instead. Very good.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
I had a recipe similar to this, which called for ketchup and water. I used 1 cup each per can of cranberry sauce, and used whole cranberry sauce. The smell was very unappealing, but I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor. I love cranberry sauce, but I could see how some people would not like this. The cranberry does add a tang. I liked the flavor with the meat, but did not really care for the extra gravy with the potatoes. I also used corn starch instead of flour and butter. Will definitely make again, and try it without the ketchup, too.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
I thought these were good, but mine also turned out dry. They were actually better the next day. That could be from the high altitude (6000 ft) though. The frosting is really good. I didn't use the bread machine, and these were easy. I don't know what the extra "work" is people are talking about - these are homemade, and pretty simple at that! Update: Go buy the book "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day" and make this recipe using the (no knead) challah dough from the book! AMAZING!!

Snickerdoodles V

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
I've only ever used the Better Homes & Gardens recipe for snickerdoodles, and from what I remember, these are much better. They are soft and chewy from the oven, but end up crispy. I like to flattened them slightly before cooking as others suggested, too. I used butter flavored shortening. I also had to cook these for 12-14 minutes before they were even set.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
I used other reviewers' advice and added the cheese near the end of the cooking time. I also used real bacon, which you can fry up in the same pan you use for the chicken, after the chicken is in the oven. I was surprised at the flavor of the teriyaki and ranch together. My husband really liked this. I thought it was good, but not fantastic. I gave it four stars for him!

Hawaiian-Style Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
These were really good. So good my kids actually ate them, which amazed me! I've made them a few times now, and I add 1/2 cup ketchup to the sauce. I suggest cooking them for a little less time, maybe 10 minutes. And putting them under the broiler for a few minutes when you add the sauce to brown them up and thicken the sauce a bit. Gave 4 stars just because they seemed overcooked, and we preferred them with ketchup. Will definitely make these again though!

Buttery Spritz Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I've never made spritz before, so I didn't know what the dough was supposed to look like. I wrote down the recipe without the flour!! After some trial and error I ended up adding probably the amount of flour needed, and then they were great. Lots of fun to make and decorate. We'll definitely try again!

Cranberry Crumb Pie by EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I made this in a graham cracker crust, and used pecans instead of walnuts. It got rave reviews for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved the unique blend of cranberries, nuts, and cheesecake type filling. Really easy, too. Gave it 4 stars just because I didn't personally love it as much as everyone else did!
