Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2014
As usual I read the reviews before starting - I have to say the advice was spot on. The helpful tips were - 1- make sure the dough is very cold before you start (it's almost fudge-like). 2- Parchment paper instead of greasing your pan. 3- Half an Andes mint on each cookie about 1 minute after you remove them from the oven, and then go right back and flip the unmelted mint over. This was the hardest part, to get that swirly mint look. Mine cooked for 9 1/2 minutes - they are EXCELLENT. This is a keeper for sure.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
Made this to bring to a friends house for dinner; we wanted something different. This was a great dish and loved by all! I read over a lot of reviews and made a few changes. I used 1/2c brown sugar splenda and 1/2c white sugar in the cheesecake mixture, which cut out 1/2c sugar. I only used about half of the butter recommended, I just covered the pastry layer with melted butter until it was covered and discarded the rest. Drizzled honey on top as many suggested - it was plenty sweet and very very good! I think a little extra vanilla extract would be nice next time. We topped it with apple pie filling and cool whip - devine! I used the Pillsbury pastry sheets instead of crescent rolls - this makes it very easy!

Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
Made this for a "dessert day" at work, for those who wanted something low fat. It is a hit! Lots of chopping, but it's worth it. I used crisp apples, raspberries, strawberries and kiwi. Don't skip the kiwi! It gives it that bit of tartness you need in salsa and goes great with the cinnamon chips (which I bought bagged from the grocery store).

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
Made this today for my husband's birthday (the world's biggest chocolate cake connoiseur)...and my mom showed up, the second biggest...this one is right up there! Thanks to all the comments here, I wasn't surrised at the watery batter...and I put extra shortening on the pans so it wouldn't stick. The frosting is fantastic and the cake was extra moist. It was chocolatey enough! Make sure to have a big gallon of milk on hand! Thank you Sandy...it's an award winner in my family!

Three Cheese Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
We enjoyed this, it is a heavy dish though and although we all like cheese, it seemed to be a little too much cheese. The cheddar and parmagiana came through strongly. I will make this again but might leave out the parm altogether. It was very good for a big appetite and you need nothing with it other than a salad.

Best recipe I've downloaded. My family informed me this is a keeper! I served it over rice, it was perfect. I would serve this for company, definitely!

In search of the best fried chicken recipe...tried this one, it is VERY good. My family thought it could use a little more spice, but it came out crispy and juicy just like they like it!
