Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
OK.. so I think I've pretty much PERFECTED..I did it last night and it is the best home made mac and cheese I've ever had! I used 1 3/4 cup of milk and 1/4 cup heavy cream.. this made it extra creamy and yummy. I also blended in 2 cups of the suggested cheddar as well as 1 cup of provolone and 1 cup of mozzeralla...this made it even more creay and cheesy... I omitted the breadcrumb topping (TOO much breadcrumbs for me) and generously added more cheddar, mozzeralla, and provolone to the top before puting it into the oven... If you like easy, cheesy, and creamy mac and cheese..you will love this recipe with these modifications!

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
If I could have given this 4.5 stars, I would have. Overall I thought this recipe was good, just not anything extraordinary. The cake just tasted like a normal chocolate cake to me, but the frosting was very very good. The addition of the sour cream into the frosting gave it a little "tang" which I thought was delicious. The only alteration I made was a made it a two layer cake (I only had to 9 inch pans!)..Oh and I accidently dumped the dry ingredients one by one into the wet mixture, stirred that, then added the sour cream. I dont know if that affected the overall taste of the cake or not (?) Overall, I dont know if I will be making this again..

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
Wow.. these brownies are awesome! I doubled the recipe and used a 9 x 13 inch pan.. but there wasnt much batter for that big pan, so I made more batter (without doubling it this time) and they came out to the perfect thickness... the frosting came out good but it is pretty sweet... you do have to add milk untill youve reached your desired consistancy. Ill be making these again, Im sure! Thanks for the great recipe!

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
I have to admit when I first tried this fresh out of the oven I wasnt all that impressed.. however that night I stuck it in the fridge and the next morning it was delicious! I think eating it cold just made it a lot more moist than eating it at room temp. Everyone loved this..my boyfriends mother(who is a pro at cooking) even asked for the recipe! I followed the recipe to the "T" except for I added a few extra chocolate chips. Make sure you use a good quality chocolate chip (I used Gheradelli and they seemed to melt in my mouth, every after refridgeration.) Thanks for the recipe.. Im sure Ill be making this again!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
This pie definatly had more of a cream cheese flavor more so than a peanut butter flavor. I did make a few adjustments. I melted some bakers chocolate and brushed it over an oreo crust, then refrigerated it to let it harden for about 15 minutes. I also used fat free milk, reduced fat cream cheese and reduced fat whipped topping and my boyfriend and I still found it to be a little too heavy and sweet. I think next time I will decrease the powdered sugar and cream cheese amount and increase the peanut butter amount. If I could have rated this 4.5 stars I would have.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
When I first came across this recipe, it really didnt sound like anything to special to me...but my boyfriend really wanted me to make it so I gave in.. and boy was i wrong.. this dessert was AWESOME! I porued half a bottle of caramel over the first brownie layer and topped the whole thing off with some crushed heath bar and it was perfect! Also, it tastes MUCH better the next day (the brownies soften up) so if you are making it for a special occasion I reccomend that you do it a day ahead of time...Im sure I will be making this one again!

Garlic Bread Mama Rita's Way!

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
This bread was great although I made a few modifications. First instead of using hoagie rolls, I just used a baguette and second, I doubled the cheese mixture and Im glad I did because it happened to be just enough. O yeah, and I added some shredded mozzeralla on top of the cheese mixture before broiling. MMMM..

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Wow.. I really wish I would have read the reviews before I made this! 1 tbsp of garlic salt is WAY TO MUCH! Especially since butter is already salted. I think next time if I used way less garlic salt, this would have an awesome flavor! The paprika and all the seasonings really give this butter a beautiful color.. excellent for presentation!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
WOW this dip was amazing..and somewhat HEALTHY as well... I used fat free refried beans, low fat cream cheese, light sour cream, and multigrain tortilla chips to lessen up the calories! I first layed down the bean mixture, then the cream cheese/sour cream mixture. Then I topped that with some homemade guacamole (avacado is VERY good for you!) I then put the salsa on top of that and topped off with the tomoatos, green onions, green peppers(extra veggies), then the cheese and olives....everyone at our football party absolutly LOVED this dish. I would recommend it to anyone!

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
Wow, this was great with a few modifications...I used a cookie sheet with edges (BE SURE too because the batter is runny like a reg cake and if your cookie sheet doesnt have elevated edges of course your batter will not be held up by anything)... I used the advice of another reviewer and lined the pan with parchment paper..when I took it out of the over i let it cool for 15-20 minutes the flipped the cake onto another sheet of parchment paper with powdered sugar sprinkled on it, then peeled off the parchment paper.. had no problems with sticking. I spread the cream cheese icing on and sprinkled crushed walnuts on top! Had no problems with cracking when I rolled it. Perfect recipe to make at this time of year! My boyfriend and his friends all loved it!
