Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
i didnt have fresh thyme and i used lemon juice instead of vinegar - those are the only changes i made. great recipe. i checked the veggies at 30 minutes and thought the potatoes were still a tiny bit hard, so i cooked it for 10 minutes more. should've stopped at 30 because the veggies, although they stayed pretty much together, were too mushy for my taste. i would have preferred to have them a little harder. so 30 minutes in my oven wouldve been perfect. thanks for the recipe!

Blueberry Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
i gave this 4 stars just because it was kind of boring tasting. not much flavor. i put it on a prepared graham cracker crust and i think that's what saved this salad. i kept thinking it needed lemon or something to give it some flavor. great basic recipe though. if you do put it on a graham cracker crust, there will be enough blueberry topping for 2 pies! could probably halved the cream cheese mixture btwn the 2 pies, although there will be slightly more blueberry mixture on each pie if you dont mind that. thanks!

French Quarter Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
best bread pudding recipe i've made. the only thing to watch for - dont cook it for too long cos the outside will get dry and not very tasty. i will probably double the spices next time. didnt have a problem whatsoever with the raisins. just pushed them down into the pudding so they werent on top. covered with foil. oh, and i did have to double the whole recipe (minus the bread, pecans, and butter) because i mustve had a big loaf of bread and it didnt get soaked through real well. thanks!!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
i gave this 4 stars just because it was kind of boring. too much cream cheese and mayo and not enough other stuff. great base recipe though. i would add in more jalapenos, maybe more green chiles and some garlic powder. great taste, just needs a little more. thanks!

Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
used light sour cream, everything else was the same. loved the corn muffin taste in it. it came out a little dry, but probably cos i cooked it too long (an extra 10 i think). thanks!!

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
good recipe to change things up. stirred the potatoes a couple times while cooking. i halved the recipe so only used 2 tbsp. of butter - 3 tbsp. would've been fine cos potatoes started sticking to the pan at the end of cooking time - not sure if there's any way to really avoid this - just have to catch it before it happens i guess. will make again! thanks!!

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
used baby back spare ribs and cooked it as suggested - double foiled in the oven. marinaded it overnite and due to the wind storm had to bake it in the oven @ 350 degrees for 40 minutes (cooked it 15 minutes with foil, then basted and removed foil, cooked for another 15 and basted, then another 10 minutes) then broiled for 3 minutes. the ribs were excellent. not dry or tough at all. fantastic recipe!! thanks!

Strawberry Chocolate Mousse Cake

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
i used mini chocolate chips and it melted really well. i did bake the crust at 350 degrees for 7 minutes and that was perfect. very easy to make and looked great. but the mousse texture was really strange - my husband said it was gritty-like. i thought it was a starchy texture or something - hard to describe. and the topping didnt have a whole lot of taste, but yet i think it's needed for the cake just to even out the mousse.

Barbecue Beef Cups

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
what makes these special is probably the barbecue sauce you use. if you love your bbq sauce, you'll love these probably. i used sweet baby rays and loved this recipe. i used the grands biscuits. seemed like there was too much biscuit to meat so next time i'd split each grand biscuit and that should be about perfect. very easy to make and something different for the kids (and us!) than barbecues. thanks for the recipe!

Creamy Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
yum! my whole family licked this up. i followed the ingredients exactly. the only thing i changed was cutting up the chicken instead of shredding it and i just added 2/3 of the spaghetti sauce to the chicken/cream cheese/moz cheese mixture instead of adding them separate. very easy to make and great tasting! thanks for the recipe. this will go into the monthly schedule!

Orange Cream Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
this was a nice recipe. it thickened up perfectly and had a great taste. but the reason for the 4 stars - seemed like much more work where you could just use a peach yogurt or whatever flavor and get the same taste for much less work and calories. but other than that, it is a good recipe and definitely worth a try. thanks!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
my guests loved this, i thought it was ok. i soaked all the crackers and had more sauce so i just poured it all on and i dont think that was the right decision. the crackers on the edge where there was extra sauce wouldnt break apart and got thrown. some crackers were chewy too. i didnt near enough chocolate chips i realized as i was making them, so i had to add the white chocolate chips and they were still very good. i think next time i will use more crackers, less sauce, and half chocolate chips and half white chocolate chips.

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
these were good, esp. in sandwiches and with the southern potato salad on this site. but i thought they were just basic and something that couldve been easily accomplished in the crockpot.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
sorry, but we didnt care for this. if your not really a rum lover, you more than likely wont like this cake. it has a lot of rum in it and the smell is powerful. for the rum in the cake i used myers rum and for the glaze i used appleton (as suggested by lindsay w). i let the glaze soak in for a few hours. seems like the recipe made a lot of glaze - if i had liked it and wanted to make it again, i wouldnt add the entire amount of glaze. but other than that the cake turned out very nice looking.

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
loved it! thanks for the recipe! i said i would never make a potato salad cos it was so much work, but this was easy and so satisfying! the only thing i changed was adding 1 tbsp cider vinegar and 1 tbsp sugar as suggested by retired cook. with these 2 additions i liked it much better. i did cook the potatoes in the oven for an hour and then let them cool in the fridge. i cut them up with the skins on and loved it that way (red potatoes). much easier too! my husband said he didnt ever think he'd try a potatoe salad he liked, and he loved this one. yum!

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
the recipe makes quite a bit brown sugar/butter mixture so more crackers can be used. some of mine came out chewy and i couldnt break some apart so i would suggest only using enough mixture to cover the crackers and that's it. (i used all the mixture and that was probably too much and make them chewy - just my guess). i didnt have enough semisweet chips so is used mostly white chocolate chips and the taste was still great. friends really thought the brittle was excellent. i will make it again and hopefully have better success. thanks for the recipe!
