Cranberry Gelatin Salad I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I made half a recipe except for the can of cranberry sauce for a small family gathering and it was perfect. I used some of the pineapple juice along with the water and used whole berry cranberry sauce for the texture that the plain jellied sauce wouldn't offer. It took me five minutes to throw this together and it was perfect. thank you!

Cranberry Oat Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
This is the same recipe that's on the back of the Ocean Spray Craisins bag, but with the addition of nuts and cinnamon. It's really good, but I definitely didn't use a whole cup of nuts. I don't think it needs that many. This is one of my favorite cookies ever!!

Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I love this recipe! It's such a yummy and traditional thing to make for Christmas and it's so easy too! I did everything as the recipe states except for adding mini marshmellows after the chow mein to stretch the recipe farther. There was plenty of the butterscotch/peanut butter mixture to cover everything completely. Delicious, easy and inexpensive, now that 's a good combination!!

Robin's Quinoa with Mushrooms and Spinach

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Hubby and I really enjoyed this recipe since we both like balsamic vinegar a lot! I don't think this is a recipe for everyone since the wine and balsamic flavors are pretty strong. I added a cut up chicken breast to make this a main dish and also used feta cheese since I didn't have any goat cheese. I'd love to try it again using goat cheese instead! Love that stuff :o) Next time, I will also add more minced garlic and a few other seasonings that compliment thyme to add more depth to the flavor. I liked this as a main dish, but for a side dish I prefer the lighter flavors of Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach. I'm glad to have two great recipes for quinoa since it's such a healthy grain. Thanks!

Basic Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
This is an excellent and easy recipe. I've always wondered what the "secret" ingredient of gourmet chicken salad is and I think this recipe made it clear...roasted almonds!! We all thought this was yummy with more lemon juice, salt and extra freshly ground black pepper. It's basic but delicious!! Next time I'll add diced onions and creole seasoning to add a little heat! Yummy to my tummy :o)

Chunky Seafood Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I've made this recipe twice. As written, it is four stars but with a few changes it easily becomes five stars! I added celery, used 1% milk and as surprising as this sounds 98% fat free soup! It didn't taste enough like seafood for our taste so I added a can of chopped clams with the juice and that made a big difference! I love that this recipe uses imitation crab meat since it's such a low calorie protein source. Since I cut way back on fat and calories in this recipe, I might add some bacon next time for more depth in the flavor. I'll make this often in the cold winter months since it's so easy and one of my hubby's favorite soups!

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
These muffins are definitely better the second day! I grated the apples just because it's faster & substituted applesauce for half of the butter. I decided not to add cinnamon so I could judge the recipe fairly, but next time I'll add it for sure! As for the topping, I tried it as the recipe stated, but next time I'll use the traditional method of mixing in cold butter with a pastry cutter instead since the melted butter caused a gooey mess that didn't spread well! These cooked for exactly 25 minutes and smelled wonderful! FYI: This recipe made 15 muffins for me and I filled every one to the top! Awesome :o)

Chicago Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
This was very good considering that it's all made with standard kitchen ingredients. I tried to follow the recipe, but it was definitely bland for our taste so I added a few extra spices (Garlic and onion powder, white pepper, cracked black pepper and most importantly Mrs. Dash!) I also followed other reviewers advice to use more lemon juice, increase sour cream to 1.5 cups and decrease mayo to 1/2 cup. I'll make this again in a pinch, but I'll probably spice it up a little more with a few shakes of hot sauce :o)

Lower Fat Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Great low fat recipe. Nobody except my hubby realized that it was low fat :o) I used applesauce instead of margarine and milk instead of water. I added a tsp. of both vanilla & cinnamon also. This was perfectly brown in fifty minutes and made the house smell amazing! I might add a few chopped pecans next time since the calories are already reduced enough that I wouldn't feel guilty!

Chex® Muddy Buddies®

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
I only make this treat at Christmas, but it is always loved by all! The amount of chocolate and peanut butter is perfect, but you have to mix it, mix it more then mix it again to make sure that every piece is coated before putting it in a gallon size ziploc bag with the powdered sugar! Definitely don't use wheat chex for this recipe since it gets hard and the texture is weird. I love all Chex mix recipes!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
This deserves five stars just for being the easiest glaze recipe ever! I made it in the microwave as others recommended and I will always follow this method in the future because it's so much less hassle than using a double boiler. It was very thick though so didn't drizzle well (looked more like blobs of glaze! LOL)The appearance didn't effect the great taste though! Next time I might try adding a little more corn syrup to thin it out, but I have no complaints with this recipe!

Chocolate Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
This frosting is great. It definitely does have a tangy flavor because of the cream cheese which I like, but not everyone probably would. I used almost the whole four cups of confectioner's sugar because the 4 T. of milk was too much. I wasn't planning to use more than three cups of sugar! Next time, I might stop at 2 T. of milk and see how that turns out. The birthday girl loved the taste of cinnamon in this recipe :o) I loved that it was one of the easiest chocolate frosting recipes I have ever made! PS: It's a lovely medium brown color so I made a dark chocolate glaze to drizzle all over the cake as contrast. So pretty!

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
This was great. I dyed it purple for my best friend's 25th B-day "Purple Party" and served it in martini glasses with purple sugar around the rims. Such a cute effect! Thanks for this easy recipe that allowed me to devote more time to decorating her birthday cake! PS: Leftover "Champagne" was delicious with rum...

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
This truly is the perfect chocolate cake! I'll be making this for many birthdays and events in the future :o) I followed the recipe exactly, even using sour milk (2 T. of vinegar to 1 cup of milk) for the buttermilk and it turned out perfectly. Thanks so much!

Caramel Macchiato Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Amazing cheesecake! I took a chance and did not do the waterbath and it turned out Beautifully!! I've made a lot of cheesecakes and this is probably the prettiest one I've ever baked. I'll be posting a picture shortly. I did make sure to leave it in the oven for the recommended amount of time after baking to prevent cracking. I followed this recipe to a "T" and I wouldn't change a thing in the future. It tasted even better the second day after baking! I'll make this one again and again. Thanks for posting!

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
I'm embarrassed to go against all the five star reviews, but I didn't like it nearly as much as regular scampi. I think it needs to have at least half butter/half olive oil to be five star. I followed the recipe to a "T" even adding a little more basil for flavor but then we tasted it and found it to be bland so we added garlic salt and old bay seasoning to up the flavor. I might make this again sometime with the addition of butter. Thanks for posting, I'm always looking for new ways to use fresh basil.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This is a great recipe, almost exactly the same as "Easy chocolate chip pound cake" which I have been making for years. The only difference I can see is that the other recipe uses yellow cake mix and only 3/4 cup of oil. Highly recommend reducing the oil in this recipe to 3/4 cup instead of a whole cup! This cake is easy to make and is always a hit anywhere I take it. REVISION: The other cake only calls for 1/2 cup chocolate chips and this one says use Two Cups!! I can see now why it's called Too Much Chocolate Cake! LOL

Cheesy Ranch New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
How can you go wrong with this recipe? It's like a shortcut recipe for restaurant style potato skins without the work! We thought it was delicious. The only thing I added was a sprinkle of real bacon bits on top of the cheese before baking. Yum!! Next time I think I'll add green onions as a few others have suggested.

Seafood Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
This is great for a refreshing & low calorie lunch as long as you use low fat mayo and spray butter like I did! I used 1/4 cup chopped regular onion and added a stalk of celery chopped (very crucial!) and also doubled the old bay seasoning. The lemon juice is very important to the light flavor that this seafood sandwich needs. It really is very good even though I only had time to let it sit for 10 minutes instead of the recommended 30. I bet it will taste even better tomorrow! I think this would taste great on crackers or even just on crunchy romaine lettuce too! I served it on a toasted hot dog bun with a couple of pieces of lettuce :o)
