Champagne Punch III

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
Very good. I halved the recipe and had to use refrigerated limeade as my grocer did not have frozen. Very tasty, but a little tart which can be toned down with the club soda.

Peanut Butter Fingers III

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
Very easy, and very similar to eating a butterfinger candy bar. I made these up quick while dinner was cooking which was good because I didn't have any space in the oven. First bite I didn't feel like it tasted like butterfinger, but once you start chewing it does. Yum! I ate many and usually can control myself when I make tasty treats, but not with this one :).

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Mine burned and I don't think they need to cook for 60 min., I'd say 40 min. - flipping the wedges half way through. I only used 2 sweet potatoes - so maybe this was too much oil. I used a ziploc bag to toss them in. I will try again with the decreased cooking time and less oil for the smaller portion.

Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
This is an average recipe. The chicken was very juicy (but I also used boneless thighs versus breasts). I may try this with olive oil and garlic in the future so it may be a little healthier.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I REALLY liked this, but my husband, who is not picky, did not care for it. He thought it was too many flavors mixed together. I would make sure to pound out chicken as our breasts were a little too thick not allowing enough of the flavor absorb. I loved the sauce it made - very flavorful (not too much for me) - even sopped some of it up with my rice. I will try it in the crockpot next time as per another reviewer.

Coconut Orange Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Delicious, light and different. A friend likes coconut but can't have dairy and I found this as an alternative to all the coconut desserts with milk and cream cheese in the recipe. I made it as stated in the recipe with the exception of cutting up the orange pieces in thirds. I think you can easily make variations to these as per other reviewers. I may decrease the oil a little next time (1/2 cup) and add some coconut into the batter, and will try chocolate chips in the future (I Love orange and chocolate together), and may also try a chocolate drizzle over the topping.

Onion Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Different, and will probably try different mix of spices made on my own in the future (maybe thyme, salt, pepper?). As per other reviews, baked only at 400 degrees to prevent burningof onion pieces, and also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I stirred up every 10minutes. My husband did not like very much - he didn't think onion went well with sweet potato. Husband also prefers a cripy outside to sweet potato pieces from the oven which I always have difficulty obtaining.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
4 because I did not exactly follow the recipe after reading all the reviews and everyones suggestions for changes to the recipe. I've mad these twice, once with baby back pork ribs (which we preferred) and pork spare ribs (less preferred because of the fat on them). I think it is important to bake ahead, especially with spare ribs to get rid of some of the fat. I used rib rub both times prior to baking. I cut up the ribs into 2 piece sections after baking. I replaced the ketchup with bbq sauce, and the chili sauce with ketchup, and still added all the extra stuff. Both were falling off the bone at 6 hours. Thickened sauce with a teaspoon of cornstarch in a tablespoon of water, then mixed in. Delicious and will definitely make any type of ribs we have again with this recipe.

Roast Beef Sandwich Roll

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Very good. Husband loved it. I made it with the refrigerated pizza dough as per another reviewer since it comes out of the can just the right size. Husaband thinks it could have less cheese and more meat. I did brush with egg, but didn't use up all of the egg, and then sprinkled dough with artisan parm cheese from the shred cheese section of store and the dough was so delicious. I will definitely be experimenting with this recipe with other meats, veggies and cheeses.

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Maybe a 3 because I did not put icing on them, as I was tryng to keep them healthier for my daughter's pre-school. I did sprinkle a little confectioner's sugar and it got absorbed and was not seen on top. Overall, they were a little bland leading to the 3 stars - may try again with icing.

Sweet and Sour Pork Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Different and will make again when I have leftover duck sauce from a kielbasa recipe I make sometimes. I followed most of the reviewers and baked the meatballs at 350 for 30 minutes. I did have to add about 1/4 more cup of bread crumbs (maybe because I used the canned/prepared kind), and I also added a tablespoon of oriental seasoning to the mix that I made as meatballs, not patties. I also doubled the amount of duck sauce used, coated the meatballs in it and allowed it to simmer for about 15 minutes in a suate pan. Served with white rice and stir fry green beans cooked in a little oil, soy sauce and oriental seasoning.

Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Different flavor and very easy to make (no longer than 30 minutes). Adds variety to cookie platters with no baking necessary. I use 1 can (5oz) of noodles, 1 bag (11oz) of butterscotch chips and 1 cup of peanuts which makes up to 50 stacks. I've also made "sticks and stones" on this website with pretzels, chocolate and butterscotch chips, peanuts, peanut butter and raisins which is also very quick and simple, great for those who love chocolate covered pretzels, and tastes a lot like a Chunky candy bar.

Wedge Salad with Elegant Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Made for Christmas eve and got compliments on the presentation. I usually only rate 5 if I feel it is similar to what I would get in a restaurant - so this didn't quite make it, but will definitely make again. I did make bacon and crumble it over the dressing. I cut back on the amount of blue cheese - it seemed like too much. The dressing was a little watery even after sitting overnight - so may cut back on sourcream or buttermilk next time too.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Definitely different. My husband says 4.5 stars. I don't think I've ever had curry before - so I'm not sure if this taste was similar but it seemed like it should be spicier. I definitely needed at least 1 tblsp more of oil while cooking the curry and vegetables to be able to coat the chicken. I followed the suggestion of cooking the curry for 5min on own, then vegs for about 10min before adding the chicken. I'm always using what I have on hand so I used tomato paste instead of sauce which I figured would be fine with the other reviews and needing to lessen liquid. Also only had cream of coconut - so only used half can of this and left out the sugar. It did have to simmer longer than stated (will try without lid on next time). Did add 1tblsp of cornstarch in 2 tblsp of water in end to thicken. Very unique flavor that I have never had before but will definitely be making again!

Pierogi Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Delicious - very close to tasting like a real pierogi. I was skeptical but am sold and will be making it again. I made with 7 potatoes and mixed the bacon/onion/garlic into them - like a pierogi would be. I only made 2 layers of potato and lasagna noodles (6 noodles) in a 9X13 pan. Really could be made in a smaller pan if you wanted more layers.

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Awesome - I love toffee and this is the best I ever had. It wasn't as hard and didn't stick to my teeth as much as commercially prepared toffee. I was a little fooled by how much time it takes (I thought it would be quick), but takes more like 45min of constant attention. I also had always been nervous about cooking anything that requires you to get to a certain temp, but this was my first try and I had success. I do suggest only a temp of 285, as I let it get a little higher and some pieces had a little burnt taste. I used a slotted spoon to stir at first to prevent the separation of the butter, and then later on used a spatula to get the sides and bottom clean on pan. I did not stir constantly but about once per minute for about 10 seconds each time. It took about 30min of a light boil to get to the right temp; The temp goes up very slowly. I did a half recipe and poured it out on a large baking sheet, and would probably use 2 sheets if I made it as written. I used mini chips for quicker melting. Do not pat the toffee with a paper towel to remove grease, as per another reviewer, you'll loose some toffee onto the papertowel. Also, don't pat the almonds down with a bagged hand, you'll loose some chocolate - instead use the back of a measuring cup. Can't wait to make again!

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Many requests for this cake to be made again, and my husband said this is the best cake I've ever made with presentation and taste. I used a white cake and chocolate pudding because it's what I had on hand. I made this in a monkey bread pan. I followed the reviewer who suggested pouring the glaze back in the pan and putting the cake back. I also poked holes in the bottom while it was soaking and drizzled with sauce.

Autumn Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Yummy! I made this for Thanksgiving and had a request to make it for Christmas too. Liked by everybody. At Thanksgiving, I made it with buttercup squash (looks like a smal green & orange pumpkin), but it was VERY difficult to peel even after microwaving for 5min. Probably the easiest way to use the buttercup squash would be to cut in half, scoop out seeds, bake for about an hour at 350 degrees, then scoop out the squash and then prepare as the recipe says. For Christmas, I used butternut squash and it was much easier to prepare and just as delicious. I used a mix of apples including macintosh and cut them up into small wedges (not sliced or diced). For topping I used Special K with cinnamon and pecans for the cereal. Lastly, I put everything in the crockpot instead of baking and kept on low until ready to eat.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
They were a little watery and I had to use 3 more tablespoons of flour. They were also floppy and moist when cooked. May have been because I used over-ripe bananas instead of ripe. Will probably stick with pancake mix and just add bananas if I want that flavor.

Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
My husband licked the bowl and commented any cake I make for him he wants this frosting on it. I did use the coconut flavor & it was perfect. I used it frost the coconut cake mix cake on this website-so did not add shred coconut. Great reviews from co-workers!
