Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Well, let me just add my 5 star review! I cut the recipe in half and it made perfect 36 cookies. They are plump and soft and crunchy that I wanted. I will stop looking for another cc cookie, this one is a winner!! I used milk chocolate chips and they are really sweet so I think next time I will stick with the semi-sweet ones. The walnuts are so good in the cookies too. Mine look like the picture on this recipes so I'm sooo happy!!!

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
This was my first sweet potato pie and wow, it's a winner! I used 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (recipe on AR) instead of the nutmeg & cinnamon. Perfect spice to sweet combo. My 2 medium sweet potatoes made a little over 16 oz so I just weighed the puree and used exactly 16 oz. Thank you Cougaar for a fantastic, easy to make pie. Since sweet potatoes are available year round here in the south, this will be on my table often!

KFC Coleslaw - Knock Off

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Once again Baking Nana, it's a WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER!!!! I used a 16 oz bag of coleslaw mix that I whirred around in the food processor to get those small bits. I made the full amount of dressing but could have probably cut it down by 1/3. All in all, this is the best coleslaw I've ever made and it does so much remind me of KFC. One little thing, I didn't put in any lemon juice (not one of my fav's) but otherwise followed the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this!

Thin Mint Crackers

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
I froze a sheet tray and then placed the dipped crackers back in the freezer. When they were hardened, they would not come off the sheet pan except in tiny little shreds of chocolate covered crackers. The bittersweet chocolate was off-putting to me. Needless to say, I won't be making these again.

School Lunchroom Cafeteria Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Now these are some great, easy to make and tasty yeast rolls. I did cut the recipe down to 15 and made 14 rolls, placed in a buttered 9x13 glass dish. I did have to bake for about 17-18 minutes to get the nice browning. They are light, fluffy and I think the flavor is just what I love! Served with Brown Sugar Meatloaf and fresh greenbeans with little new potatoes. What a gourmet meal!

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
I made this with chardonnay and it turned out perfect! I did follow the suggestion to mix the flour with the shredded cheese and added it in 1/4's and waited for that 1/4 to melt before adding the next. I also added some garlic salt and about 2 T of butter at the end. Wowzer, nice, cheesey fondue. Thanks for the recipe!

Steff's Shepherd Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
This was pretty good but I felt it needed a bit more seasoning. 4 stars as is, 4 1/2 with some garlic, worstestcher sauce and good, buttery mashed potatoes. Obviously, more than 2 cups of mashed potatoes is needed for 6 servings, that just doesn't seem right. I'll make this again when I don't have ANYTHING else to make with my 1 lb of hamburger :)

This is perfect. Thanks for posting. I did put the servings up to 30 and it made a nice bottle of spice for this time of year.

Choco Shortbreads

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I was concerned that there wasn't enough sugar to make them taste good, and I was right. I wanted to roll them into a log and then slice (which I did after rolling them in sprinkles). I didn't have the mini chocolate chips so I drizzled the finished cookies with vanilla bark. Pretty presentation for little Halloween cookies but the taste leaves a lot to be desired. I'll search for a better cookie next time. *** Update... I've changed it to a 5 star recipe after tasting them the next day, they were perfect and I'll make them again! They were a hit at work too!

Soft Garlic Breadsticks

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Pretty tasty although I think the garlic powder was a tad bit overwhelming. Next time I'd cut back on that and maybe add some more herbs. The bread was soft went great with our spagetti :)

Wedding Gift Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Excellent sauce. I thought it might be too watery but once it simmered for about 5 hours on low it was a perfect sauce. The flavors were spot on, although I only used a slight pinch of rosemary as I don't really care for that flavor. I added some dried basil too. I liked the flavor of the italian sausage in here since I've only ever used straight ground beef. Thanks Dog Fish for posting your recipe!

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
These were excellent. It made 28 cupcakes for me with perfectly rounded tops so that I could pipe the frosting on. Great spicey flavor even without the frosting. I'd make these again in a heart beat! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
This is yummy. I did use 3 cups of powdered sugar to make a bit stiffer so I could pipe the frosting on my pumpkin cupcakes. Just perfect taste, consistancy and pipability!!!

Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
This was soooo good on some chocolate cupcakes. It was too stiff so I had to add about 2-3 T more of cream. It was perfect though so I'll make it again many times!

Ranch Ham Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
Perfect ratios of the cream cheese to the ranch packet. I also added about 1/3 cup of mayonaise to that mixture before adding in the green onions. I also put some thin spears of dill pickle inside and they were the hit of a party I took them to. The dill pickle just made them!

Cheesiest Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
This was a little too oniony for us, next time I'll reduce in 1/2. Otherwise this is a very nice soup and easy to make. I don't have an immersion blender so I ust used my potato masher. This left bits of potato which was perfect. Thanks for this nice soup recipe.

Queso Blanco (Mexican White Cheese)

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
Wow, now this is AWESOME!!! I've been wanting to make a good white cheese dip and this is perfect. I used 12 oz of sliced american white cheese (Walmart brand) and just unwrapped each one and cut the stack into strips. Added the shredded montery jack and used about 1/2 cup of 1/2 & 1/2. Perfect consistancy and the cheese is mild with just a hint of spice. I LOVE THIS RECIPE and will make it again and again.

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
Excellent recipe although I had to bake it an additional 8-10 minutes to get a clean toothpick. The glaze melted into the cake perfectly and made for a very moist, buttery flavored cake. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was a hit at our BBQ. Thanks!!
