Chocolate Peanut Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I used a vanilla cake mix, added about 2/3 cup quick oats to the crust and omitted the peanuts on top. All in all, they were pretty good. I did not have time to let them chill before cutting them and I also could not chill them before they were eaten. I'm sure if I would have let them set in the refrigerator they would have been even more delicious!

Fast and Easy Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
My husband LOVED this - with modifications. Used cooked sliced potatoes for bottom of casserole (for this reason I think the casserole tasted like a loaded baked potato). Used about 1/2 c of salsa instead of ketchup. Used cream of mushroom instead of cream of chicken. Mixed my own biscuits with Bisquick and dropped them onto the casserole then covered cooked biscuits with melted butter. My husband's unsolicited response: "Definitely make this again, please!"

Brownie Crackles

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
You don't need extra flour. I made these exactly as the recipe states and they turned out wonderfully. Using a cookie dough scoop or spoon, spoon cookie dough into a medium shallow dish full of powdered sugar. I can usually get 4-5 spoonfulls in at once. Then, using another spoon, spoon powdered sugar in the bowl on top of the clumps of dough. Use your fingers to roll the clumps in the powdered sugar and then place each onto the baking sheet. Doing this I didn't get a single bit of chocolate on my hands and didn't have to revise the recipe. I used a brownie mix that had the chocolate syrup to add to the mixture. The powdered sugar is a MUST - it's what makes the cookie IMO. I have gotten raves about these cookies and am asked to make them often.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Yum! I used Reduced Fat cresent rolls - the regular ones are too heavy for me. I left out the peppers and almonds because my husband is not a fan. I used garlic powder and onion flakes instead of the "real thing". I also added celery but next time I will leave that out. I added black olives and those were a VERY yummy addition. I used a Monterey Jack/Colby cheese blend...a GREAT recipe - and it looked pretty, too, despite my picture. My husband was impressed!

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
These were good with a few alterations. I had to use the juice from 4 oranges to get the dough to form. No biggie - next time I think I'll add some cinnammon. I also used 8T of butter.

PHILADELPHIA® Marble Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
Well - I made a happy mistake. I accidentally prepared a Devil's Food cake mix instead of brownies (same red box - oops!). I don't know what the brownies would have tasted like, but the cake with the marble topping was FABULOUS! I'll have to try the brownies next, but I really liked the Devil's Food cake in this.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
AH-MA-ZING! I made quite a few revisions, though. Instead of mayo, I used 1 part mayo to 3 parts plain yogurt. Instead of feta I used a grated Italian cheese blend. I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic so I wouldn't have to sautee anything. I also added a bit of salt and pepper as well as chili powder added to the mixture then added an egg to bind the mixture. I boiled my chicken until still raw in the middle then butterflied, stuffed, and baked them, covered, for 25 minutes. I omitted the bacon.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
This was a good recipe. I added a can of Rotel to the meat mixture to give it a "kick" and as a substitute for the chopped tomatoes. I used plain yogurt in lieu of sour cream. Next time I will add more salt to the meat mixture - it wasn't *quite* salty enough for my taste. I'll make it again!

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
This was fantastic (even though the main picture for this recipe doesn't look appealing - mine was much thicker)! I used 4 chicken bouillon cubes dissolved in 4 c of water instead of using chicken broth and used frozen peas instead of canned. I also added some shredded cheese, garlic powder, and salt to the biscuit mix then just dropped spoonfulls on top of the dish before baking and it turned out great. This will go in my "favorites"...my husband loved it!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
I made this for company and they each had 4th helpings! This was SO good! Instead of boiling the lasagna noodles, I laid them in a 13x9 and poured boiling water on them to submerge them. They cooked that way while I put everything else together. I used chicken bouillon cubes mixed in hot water rather than chicken broth (didn't have any). The layers were confusing as described, so I did the sauce layer on bottom, then noodles, ricotta, mozzarrella, chicken, spinach, sauce...then repeat. I sprinkled spinach and parm & mozzarrella on the top of the dish to give it a more colorful look. FABULOUS! I will definitely make this again!!!

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
I've made this twice since finding it a little over 2 weeks ago. It's SO GOOD. As another user suggested, I pounded out my chicen breasts so they cooked more evenly. I sauteed the chicken in garlic powder and I added some chili powder and cumin for kick. I put it in the oven for only about 20 minutes and it came out perfect! I'm on Weight Watchers and this is a VERY LOW POINT meal! I served over white rice and black beans. YUMMMMMM!!!

Excellent Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Made 6 servings... I didn't have chicken stock so I used chicken broth instead. When heating the butter, I sauteed minced garlic and onion in it prior to adding the flour. I also added twice the broccoli that the recipe called for and used 1 lb of Velveeta rather than 1/2 lb. It was very flavorful but a little runnier than I anticipated. Perhaps the stock would have made it thicker - I would definitely make this again.

Eggnog Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
I took another user's advice and added an egg and I used Super Moist cake mix (w/pudding already added). I would agree with another's assertion that this isn't pound cake consistency. It still got eaten up at the family gathering tonight. I liked it and I don't even like egg nog!

Snow Flakes

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
This was a really great recipe. I used real butter instead of butter flavored shortening and I used 2 tsp of almond extract in lieu of the 1 tsp of orange and 1 tsp of vanilla. I also sifted my flour, cinnamon, and salt. I have a convection oven so I'm not sure if that's what made the difference, but I found that especially the snowflake shape tended to get brown around the edges any longer than 10 minutes. Will definitely make this again!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
It had to have been something I did, but I followed the recipe exactly. The batter was extremely dry and the cookies were anemic looking. If someone can tell me what I might have done wrong I'll gladly try this again. But for now, I'll stick with my version of the Nestle Tollhouse cookies!

Frosted Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
I made these tonight to maybe take to my family's house for Thanksgiving. The flavor is fine because I took another member's advice and added more maple flavor to the batter. However, the cookies came out crispy and probably TOO thin. I assume they're supposed to be like a maple snickerdoodle. Maybe it's because I sitrred them too long (the recipe didn't say softened butter although I softened it for about 15 seconds anyway), but I am pretty disappointed. I haven't frosted them yet, but I don't think that will save them.
