Pink Ladies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
I'm giving this 5 stars because my guys really liked them. They are basically a chocolate crust with a solid 'hot fudge' layer and a cherry icing. Just a bit much for me and I have a terrible sweet tooth. I think if I made them again, I would double the crust or halve the fudge and the icing. I was trying to figure out how I could increase the cherry flavor....I thought about putting a cherry half on each piece, but they are so rich you have to cut them too small for that. If I made these again, I would use them on a cookie tray and not by themselves.

Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
Wow. This was great. I plan to make the fudge topping and keep it in the freezer so that I can make individual servings since this makes enough to serve a boatload of people. Thanks for the recipe!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
I used brown sugar instead or corn syrup. I used it with ham slices instead of a whole ham and it was really great!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Moist, flavorful....what's not to like?! I served it at a brunch along with some much sweeter rolls and pastries and it held its own.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
I went with the 1/2c. oil 1/2 c. milk version using only 1 cup of the mini-chocolate chips and substituting coffee for the water. Also baked it in a 9x13. I frosted it with light cool whip and the remainder of the mini chips. Since I changed the original recipe I went with 5 stars. Good, but not the extreme chocolate flavor I was going for. The cake was moist with a nice crumb. It works really well as an alternative to a plain cake mix cake. If you bring it to a potluck, your cake will be eaten first!

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
I tried it with the full amount of bacon grease and it left a very oily film after eating that I found unpleasant.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
Not that this needs another review, but it was quick, easy and cheaper than bottled sauce. I cheated and used evaporated milk and also didn't have Romano so used all Parmesan. (I needed a quick side and it was what I had on hand!)

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
I tried this after reading a review. My family rated it about 3 1/2 but I added half a star for nutrition and innovation! It's a very acceptable recipe for a non-meat meal. And I thought it very tasty if not addictive. I did spray the outside of the tortilla with vegetable spray to give it a little crunch.

Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
Wow! Great addition to my recipe box. I had just enough of the fudge...made the indentations pretty deep with the cylindrical end of a whisk (maybe an inch in diameter?)I used 2 3/4 c semisweet and 1/4c white chocolate chips for a more intense chocolate flavor. I've been thinking about variations on the theme.... maybe a sugar cookie dough with the fudge.... maybe a chocolate cookie with all white chocolate chips or carmel chips. Thanks for the idea!

Grilled Zucchini II

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
This was a hit even with non-zucchini eaters! I used an extra zesty Italian dressing and cut the zukes into spears rather than slices (had some nice small zukes.) That cut down on the work of turning them. I marinated them a couple hours in a ziptop bag turning them every so often and used more dressing than the recipe called for.

Grilled Delmonico Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I was wary of trying this on an $$$$ steak, so tried it with porkchops scaled back to 1 serving. What a great flavor! We had both strip steaks (unmarinated) and pork chops on the grill and the marinated chops were far and away my favorite!*edit* I didn't use the salt that is called for. Didn't miss it!

Peanut Butter Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This really needed some tweaking. The peanut butter flavor got lost. Bland. I liked the technique of cutting in the butter and pnut butter- made a nice texture. I added chocolate chips and then microwaved peanut butter and added an equal amount of powdered sugar to make crumbles (how much depends on how decadent you want them to be!)I folded that in at the end. Hubby says more chocolate chips so maybe add 2 cups. You could also put a mini Reese cup in the middle and chop some up and put on top near the end of baking. Thanks for the basic recpe, though!

Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
I made this according to the recipe up to adding the 4 cups of milk. I couldn't see how 3T of potato flakes could thicken that much liquid in addition to the cooking liquid. So I only added 2 cups of milk. It was still really thin so I thickened it with flour. After tasting, I added some chicken bouillion and then 5 slices of Am. cheese. It was then OK, but nothing special. The bacon flavor wasn't very prominent...and the bacon pieces were chewy. If I made it again, I would save the bacon to crumble on top. And the T of butter didn't add anything but calories IMHO.

Old-Fashioned Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
I only used the noodle part of the recipe and found the dough really easy to work with compared to the recipe I had been using. I like adding the dry in gredients into the egg/water mixture rather than the other way around- makes it much easier to get the proportions right. I used the noodles to make noodle 'dumplings,' rolling out the dough on a floured cloth and cutting in strips which I then pinched off directly into the boiling broth. Thanks for the recipe!

Peanut Butter Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
An instant family favorite. I did substitute teryaki sauce for the soy sauce as I was out. I think the soy would have made it too salty. I don't bother with the skewers- just sauteed chicken tenders, cut up, cooked the sauce separately and added at the end.

Caramel Nut Crunch

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
This was OK, but I think I would have liked it better if the mixture had stayed in clumps ala caramel corn rather than separating...maybe it would work to increase the syrup/mix ratio?

Rhinelander Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
I would have given this 5 stars, but went with 4 because it needed to be tweaked. Add extra carrots, lentils and potatoes, reduce flour to 1/2 c. and liquid to 3 Qts. and omit the olive oil and bouillion and you'll end up with a much heartier and healthier soup! Be sure to cook on low, low heat and stir often. I also used chicken broth for 2 qts. of the liquid and salted to taste after cooking because I wasn't sure how salty my bacon was. I'm not a big fan of thyme and 1/2 tsp was enough for me. I also used a teaspoon each of powdered onion and garlic, no fresh. Guess that was alot of tweaking....

Sweet Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
This is a strange combination of ingredients that makes a great appetizer. I make two pans- one with and one without nuts. I use Lil' Smokies for the sausage and it takes a little over a can and a half of crescent rolls to wrap all the sausages, so buy two when you shop! They get pretty sticky when they cool down, so if you are taking them to a party, use a pan nice enough to serve out of. Addictive...

Sunrise Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
Loved this salad! We ate it as soon as it jelled and it was much better the day after when the flavors had time to meld, so I would give it 6 stars if I could! After reading about the sour cream lumps, I mixed the sour cream in with the banana and the added some of the jello mixture little by little until the sour cream was runny and then dumped it all together! I want to try this again with a pretzel crust. Thanks for the recipe!
