Iced Coffee Slush

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Awesome idea... i didn't exactly use the recipe tho...i'm sure it's awesome tho lol. I just made a cup of coffee to my taste.... but perhaps twice as strong....froze it...smashed it with a fork added some milk stirred it and it was awesome :-) .....also if you want to be lazy.... you can buy ice coffee syrup like chocolate mild syrup.... freeze some milk smash it with a fork add the syrup a little more milk and stir. Awesome, thanx so much for the idea :-) Enjoy Everyone!

Twice Baked Potatoes I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I followed the recipe for the most part... though I did make a few additions... I added come crumbled bacon to the potato mixture as well as some cheese, instead of just leaving it as a topping. The bacon added a little crunch while the cheese made it that just more creamy. Excellent recipe!!! Will most certainly make again!

Cheesiest Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2015
Made this recipe twice...the second time I doubled it! I omitted the salt both times. I planned to adjust at the end if necessary but I found i didn't need to add any salt at all, I would advise to save the addition of salt to the very end and add a little at a time if you need too. I did as other reviewers have and made a lb of bacon to start. Instead of using butter to cook the onions I substituted a little bacon fat. The first time I made this recipe I used heavy cream the second time I used half and half and it was great both times next time I may even try milk. As with most soups this one is even better the day after, so go on and make it ahead for an event.

Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2015
1. It's worth the investment in a cherry pitter. (But doable with a knife and patience) 2. Made the recipe as is (except I used "sweet cherries" because that's what I was trying to use up) and it was fantastic even though I over baked it a little. Pay close attention toward the end before the timer goes off. This baby goes from lovely golden to brown on the bottom pretty quick. 3. Some people found the recipe too sweet but I found it to be just right (even though I used "sweet cherries", and my boyfriend thought it could use a little more sugar. 4. Next time I will try adding a little vanilla as other users suggested and will get back to you :-) Lastly... i'm pretty sure you're supposed to use unsalted butter. Just a note for next time.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2015
I followed the directions of Jillbean14 and it came out great. Used two cans golden mushroom soup, a half packet of onion soup powder, and reduced cooking time to 6hrs on low kept everything else the same. I like to serve this over giant shell pasta as it holds maximum sauce. There is lots of room to play with this recipe. Enjoy!

Potato Bacon Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I was pretty impressed by this chowder, it tastes amazing! I added carrots and boiled them with the potato in a cup of chicken broth as others had suggested. I minced the onion to insure no one got a big piece of it while eating and because frankly im not a big onion fan. I encourage anyone reading this to try the recipe, its well worth the while. Also take the advice of another reviewers advice- add the 2tbs cornstarch to your milk before adding it in if you want a thicker chowder. As a side note, it took me longer than 30mins to put this dish together, which was fine with me but allow for extra time. (If you are quick at chopping, slicing and dicing you might be able to pull of 30 mins but i really doubt it).

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
This was amazing! I left my chicken to soak overnight in the oil/garlic mixture..... i'll have to try it again just dipped to see if it made a difference but darn this was good. Hah, i'll even try breadcrumbs next time (I was out of those so I crushed up some pita puff chips- and hoped for the best). Other reviewers were right about the parmesan, tastes great- don't skip it! I will definitely make this again! Thank you!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
Coming from a girl that has ruined rice on numerous occasions.... this recipe is virtually impossible to screw up. Follow the directions to a tee and you'll be fine. To repeat another users words of wisdom...once the sugar is added the rice stops cooking. So check that the rice is the right texture first. Many thanks to Erica G for a great recipe. :o)

French Toast II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
If you are having trouble getting your french toast to cook all the way through: If you are making a large batch turn your oven to 350 and put them on a foil lined baking sheet AFTER you have cooked them in the pan/griddle. By the time you are ready to start serving you will have fully cooked french toast. If you are making a small batch (i.e for one or two); you can always pop these into the toaster (after they have been cooked through in a pan/griddle) if you think they need to be cooked a little more. On a side note: these freeze and reheat well in the toaster and leave your kitchen smelling wonderful. Also if you know you don't like nutmeg, or you are cooking for a "picky eater" cut back on the nutmeg! .....I add vanilla to this recipe because well I put vanilla in just about everything. Overall a great recipe easy to customize after you make it the first time. (i've always mixed the cinnamon in with the egg even though it gets a little clumpy but if you mix well and swirl it before you dip the bread it makes a lovely dark swirl on the bread). -Happy baking!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
For an interesting twist to the average grilled cheese, try adding sliced green olives in with the cheese- makes flipping the sandwich difficult but so worth the effort!

Cheesy Quiche Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
Thank you for this wonderful recipe, i made the crust following these directions but made tiny quiche tarts instead. It turned out a little over 24 mini ham,bacon,spinach, and swiss cheese quiche. I've made them a few times, friends and family are dying for the recipe. Very tasty- great results. ** if you are a health nut this is not the quiche crust for you. It was a little greasy but no one complained. My 88 yr. old grandmother ate about 3 or 4 of these mini quiche- and she's a picky eater... lol and then there is my 37 yr old cousin who hate vegetables but tried them despite the spinach content. :-) Have fun with this recipe everyone its certainly a keeper!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2014
If you make them correctly (i.e don't over bake) you will love these fudgy brownies. In a pyrex 8x8" mine were done at 20mins. If your toothpick/knife/fork whatever you use to check them comes out with a few crumbs on it they are done. If the utensil comes out totally clean you have over baked your brownies. When done right its hard not to eat the whole pan by yourself. These brownies don't need frosting at all they are sweet enough on their own.

White Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
perfect base for anything really... just have to season it appropriately. I threw in a splash or two of white wine... parmesan cheese, a fistful of pre-grated pizza cheese, some crack peppercorns, a block of frozen chopped spinach, garlic puree and some coarse salt.... but throw in what you like im sure it will still come out great! best of luck to everyone :-)
