Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
These bars are absolutely NOT too sweet! They're bar cookies; they're supposed to be sweet. What I recommend is making them once, following the recipe exactly. Then if you want to add ingredients or substitute, you'll have a better idea what you're doing. I made these exactly following the recipe and thought they were scrumptious...raves from my guests, and the entire panful disappeared. I did think the bottom was a bit crumbly, but not really a problem. I added 1T milk to the bottom layer, and it held together better but had a different texture. I could not detect the aftertaste one reviewer claimed to find. I have used sliced almonds on the top and chocolate chips in with the preserves. Excellent! If you're looking for a delicious, easy dessert recipe, this will become your go-to recipe.

Chocolate-Candy Cane Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
My family loves these cookies. I refrigerated the dough after shaping it into balls but still had the slug-shape problem. Also, it drives me nuts when a recipe says to divide the dough into X number of balls. It's much easier for me if the recipe says to shape the dough into balls of a certain size. I found that balls of about 3/4 of an inch were the right size, though I had to make the cookie canes a bit larger, about 4 inches. No more slug shapes, and I had no trouble getting these off the cookie sheet. I also used more crushed peppermint candies to ramp up the peppermint flavor. My husband doesn't like candy, so I made some of the cookies without the peppermint, and he loved them. Finally, I ran out of white chocolate, so I made some with melted semi-sweet chocolate--not as pretty, but my family raved about them. I'll make this recipe again.

Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
After reading a number of the other comments, I decided to add more stuffing so that the casserole wouldn't be too soupy. It was pretty dry, so next time I make it, I'll try it using the amounts in the recipe. My family thought it was awfully salty (My husband and I couldn't finish our portions, though our teen-aged daughter finished hers.), but that may be because I used boxed stuffing mix. I thought that was what the recipe specified, but it may have meant the bagged dry bread cubes, which are probably lower in sodium. I will take the advice of the person who recommended using low sodium soup. I can understand why small children would like this dish: it's creamy comfort food with no "weird" (to a kid) ingredients. It's nothing too exciting, but it's easy and fast, which is what I was looking for. I used leftover cooked skinless, boneless chicken breasts, as I don't have time to de-bone awhole chicken. I'll make this again, but next time I'll use the quantities called for and low sodium soup.
