Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
This cake is so easy to make and delicious!!! I used cake flour, dark unsweetened cocoa and buttermilk (no vinegar) as suggested by another reviewer. The entire cake was gone quickly. Next time I'll make two!! Thanks for a great recipe, Kellygurll!! I used 'Rich Chocolate Frosting' by Amy Via from the Allrecipes website. Excellent together!!!

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
Loved this cake; however, it did stick to the pans!! The icing was sticky enough that I could icing the layers back together and no one knew the difference! No need to change the recipe or add anything, but the icing does need to cool first, and give it at least an hour in the fridge. Do make an extra half recipe of icing and toast the coconut and pecans! I do think that next time I will take the advice of others and put the can pans in the freezer for an hour before attempting to remove them from the pans since "it doesn't dry out the cake, and the layers will pop right out if you use a hot wet cloth on the bottom of the pans", so why not? Delicious cake!! Thank you, Dean!!

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Great way to make lots of grilled-cheese sandwiches at the same time. They go great with a pot of chicken corn soup. I lost track of how many my son-in-law ate. We loved them with the cheddar cheese, as I always used Amercian cheese in the past.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
I made this for my daughter's birthday, and it was very good. I used two round pans and sliced both layers after the cake was baked so I would have a 4-layer cake and iced it with cream cheese icing. The only thing I will do different next time is to bake it 10-15 minutes less. I checked my oven and the temperature was correct.

Turkey Wild Rice Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Ummmm...really good!! I made broth from our left-over Thanksgiving turkey and also added our left-over gravy. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written but used 3 packages of the 90-second Uncle Ben's microwave wild and brown rice (...microwaved it before adding). Delicious!! It was a hit with our family and guests!!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
I have made these several times for family and friends. Each time I use two pot roasts just so we'll have enough!! As per other comments I use, beef broth rather than water and an extra pkg. of Italian-style salad dressing. I also saw a recipe in one of my cookbooks that was very similar to this one that said to put in a package of brown gravy, so I do that also. Very good!! I butter and toast the rolls, then top them with the meat and provolone cheese and put them under the broiler for just a minute to melt the cheese and put the extra gravy in a serving pitcher on the side. This is an easy dish to make and always a hit! Thank you, Maureen!!

Old-Fashioned Peach Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I doubled the recipe to make two pies and baked both at the same time. I followed the directions step-by-step, but I was a little short on sour cream, so I probably only put about a cup-and-a-half of sour cream in them. I also used about 12 fresh peaches (6 peaches per pie). While baking the first 42 mins., I covered the edges of the pie crust. I followed Trinity's Mom's suggestion and added some oats to the topping. The pies were out of the oven for 15-20 mins. while I prepared the topping and upped the temp. to 400 degrees again, and when I put them back in the oven I uncovered the edges for the last 10 mins., then turned the oven off and let them sit in the oven for another 10 mins. They were perfect; not runny at all. I cooled them for about 40 mins. and then covered them and put them in the fridge to chill, and they were delicious!! Thanks for a great recipe!!

Garlic Chicken Fried Brown Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
I marinated the chicken breasts and grilled them separately from the rice and used a combination of brown and wild rice. I used green pepper because I didn't have red. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. This was a very easy and enjoyable dish. Thank you!

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
This punch is delicious!! Very pretty too. It was a big hit at my daughter's baby shower today. We had about 50 people and I had tripled the recipe, so I brought six 1 gallon baggies of punch with me, and we used four, so doubling it for a party of 50 was perfect. I took the advice of others and cut the sugar in half, and it was perfect. The strawberries in the punch were really good too. Yum!! This is my favorite punch recipe ever. I would give it 10 stars if I could. Thank you so much!!

Watermelon and Strawberry Lemonade

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
This was really good, but messy to make. I will definitely make it again, but next time will not try to blend everything together and will just separate some of the ingredients and add to the pitcher and mix. We also crushed iced and made slushies. Be sure to add the water with the ice so your blender works properly, as you cannot blend w/o liquid! I made a pitcher with regular sugar and a half pitcher with Stevia for my dad who is diabetic.

Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
My daughter and I made these for her to take to summer camp. We added an extra egg, filled the cupcake papers 3/4 full, put the tbsp. of chocolate chips in the middle and pushed them down a little with a spoon and baked them for 24 mins. They were great; a perfect consistency!! I guess the extra egg helped! The melted chocolate chips made a nice little surprise in the center. The icing was really good too. We used cream cheese icing and added the peanut butter; also added a tsp. of milk to soften the icing a little as per Cookie Queen's suggestion. Thank you for a great recipe!

Chicken With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
Wow! This was really good! I used a boiling chicken and just cut it into bite-sized pieces, sauteed the mushrooms, then added some of the chicken broth and a couple of cans of cream of mushroom soup and stirred it in with a couple of pounches of 90 second microwave brown & wild rice. I bought sliced mozzarella cheese and forgot to top it, but it was still really good. Very quick and easy too. I'm sure the mozzarella would have enhanced it even more. Will be making this again!! Thank you!

Hawaiian Fruit Crumble

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
I thought it was okay, but my three daughters didn't care for the combination of apples/pineapple/cranberry together. They thought it tasted too sweet, even though no sugar was added to the fruits. I used Granny Smith apples.
