Chocolate Earthquake Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
My husband was in the mood for chocolate cake and cream cheese - so I searched and found this. It was awesome. It is messy and isn't necessarily beautiful looking. I doubled the cream cheese as suggested by another reviewer and I think this made it a little less sweet - which was a good thing otherwise we would have only been able to eat a sliver in one sitting. I will definitely be making this again!

Award Winning Chili Con Carne

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Very good. Also, added cinnamon and corn. No need to thicken at end, it was thick enough. Topped with small cubes of cheddar cheese - made it more delicious.

Orange Chocolate Chip Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Very dry. Although it did have an orange flavor, I could really taste the baking mix (it reminded me of eating pancakes). Also, the quantity of the chocolate chips was too small.

Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This was delicious, and my husband loved it. It is something easy to get ready the night before and just put in the oven the next day. The meat was very moist and had a delicious flavor from the marinade. We loved the mustard sauce. It was similar to chinese hot mustard and may be too spicy for some, but the mustard could easily be decreased.

Candied Kielbasa

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
Delicious and easy. I made this or a potluck and everybody liked it. I added some chipolte tabasco for extra spice and flavor (was not too spicy). I agree - make sure you slice the kielbasa thin (1/8-1/4 inch).

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Delicious - reminded me of the flavor of sugar cookies from Panera. A little difficult to roll out - needs to stay cold (if gets at all soft, it sticks), I had to roll from the center out, I used a lot of flour, and the parchment paper idea did not work for me because it kept sliding around.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
I made this for my husband on Father's Day and he loved it. He has made them in the past but this recipe seemed more authentic because of the white sauce and corn tortillas.

Mom's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Good, but watery. I will try again but will make sure I have time to salt cucumbers and let them sit.

Famous Chicken Francaise

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Very good. Definitely pound out chicken. I rinsed the chicken, floured, egg washed and floured again, then fried in olive oil. Simmered in sauce and breading did not fall off - I think you have to try not move the chicken while it's simmering. Served with buttered and lemoned spaghetti. Husband really liked it too. Also very easy & quick.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
Very good. Has a sweet, almost caramely, taste. Definitely not a basic apple pie.

Bread Pudding III

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I recently had bread pudding for this 1st time in new orleans with a whiskey(?) sauce and it was so delicious I had to try to make it at home. It reminds me of the flavor of french toast. I halved the recipe because we're a family of three, and still had to put it in a 1.5 quart dish, which I would go larger next time because mine came out somewhat mushy, even after baking for 35min. I also used white bread and apple cinnamon bread, and no raisins. Overall good, but may try a different recipe next time.

Brunch Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
Very good. I halved the recipe and made it at night and refrigerated it to cook Christmas morning, and it worked out well. Cooked for 1 hour and was ready to eat once all the presents were opened. I used a package of shredded cheddar cheese instead of processed cheese. Next time: will try frozen potatoes to save time (boiled cubed potatoes for 10min), will add salt and pepper for more flavor, may add some eggs (per my husband's request).

Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
SO EASY & SO DELICIOUS! I made this for Christmas Eve dinner. I put it in at 10am before going to visit family and it was like a gourmet meal waiting for us at home. I disagree about it tasting like BBQ or being too sweet- it was more of a gourmet flavor to me - like something you would get at a nice restaurant. Also easy to pass on to friends with so few ingredients to reemeber.

Cheesy Italian Tortellini

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
I was disappointed. Usually something with so many good reviews comes out good. The sauce was good, but the tortellini mushy/pasty. I may make the sauce in the future, but not add any pasta to it, and cook the pasta separate.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Overall, not very time consuming, compared to cooking a sauce all day. Very chunky sauce, sweet in flavor. I used 4 - 14 oz. cans of diced tomato (instead of whole tomato), and can't imagine how much more chunky it would have been with whole tomatoes. Meatballs tasty, but also sweet. I used ground turkey and added a tablespoon of olive oil - so they wouldn't be dry as others commented. May make again with some alterations (more spice), but when in a hurry, will still use jarred sauce and doctor it up.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
So delicious and so easy! Very much like a turtle candy, which I love. I used square (snap) pretzels, rolos and chopped pecans. I did as others suggested and topped with pecans before baking, and only baked for 3 minutes - so they weren't too melty. With the chopped pecans, I had to put a couple pieces on each. Will try the Dove suggestion next time and also try the whole pecans so they may look a little neater. Definitely double or triple the recipe, as they are sure to get eaten and it doesn't take much time to make more. You can easily fit 40 or more on one large cookie sheet.

Great Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
This was good and I will make it again. I did not have french loaf - so used english muffins. I cut the recipe in half and put 2 teaspoons on each half of english muffin (3 muffins or 6 halves). I put mozzarella on some and parmesan on the others and prefered the mozzarella.

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Super delicious. Have had leftovers for lunch for 2days now. My husband made this and also added some lobster, skipped the cayenne pepper (3 y.o. eating it too), used whole milk over cream, used linguine instead of penne, used baby bellas and used a parmesan/romano mix. The red peppers gave it a delicious sweet flavor, and I like having the peppers/onions/mushrooms in there to get in some vegetable servings. Agree with comments of restaraunt quality.
