Buffalo Chicken Dip
This recipe tasted great but I had trouble with it getting oily/greasy on the top after standing the crock pot for more than 15 minutes. The only changes I made to the recipe were that I used leftover chicken from an oven roaster instead of canned, and I used blue cheese dressing instead of ranch. Followed everything else exactly, and I don't think either of those changes would have affected the texture much. It tasted great but I was a little embarassed when I uncovered my crock pot at a party that I took this too and saw it looking so gross with pools of oil on the top - some people were hesistant to try it because of how it looked. Oh and no amount of mixing would make it go away! Gotta find a way to fix this before making it again. It also seemed that the longer that it was in the crock pot, the worse that it got - so I'd recommend either making in the oven and serving immediately or serving in a setting where it will be eaten quickly and not left in the crock pot for a long time. I deduct one star only because of the greasiness and appearance - taste was wonderful.

Cake Balls
I made these for the first time exactly as written to take on a trip with me and did not like them at all. I thought they were way too sweet, sickeningly sweet if you ask me. I almost threw them all away because I thought no one would eat them...then I decided to take them with me anyway, and to my surprise most people thought they were delicious. Out of a house of 12 people, 10 raved about them and even asked me for the recipe. I made a huge batch that was supposed to last the week and they did not even last more than a few hours! I will definitely be making these again to bring to parties, but not for myself to keep around the house. FYI - I had a hard time with the chocolate coating, even after freezing the cake balls for about 30 mins, so instead of completely dipping each cake ball and I layed them out on a cookie sheet and drizzled melted milk and white chocolate over them, then sprinkled my toppings on by hand. I cooled them and then flipped all of the cake balls over and repeated the drizzling and sprinkling on the other sides. They had less chocolate coating that way and they turned out looking very pretty. I served them in individual mini-cupcake wrappers. Thanks for the recipe!

Caramel Popcorn
I followed the recipe exactly. All I can say is...WOW! I love caramel popcorn and always look forward to getting it on our beach vacations but this stuff is FANTASTIC! I cannot believe how good it is, and so easy to make! I am definitely keeping this recipe on hand as one of my go-to snacks for when we have a party! Thank you!!
