Mom's Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I made this for the first time and brought it to a New Year's Eve party. I didn't have any dark rum so I used the coconut rum I had on hand. It was absolutely fabulous! I brought Cool Whip to serve with it, but no one wanted it as it was great by itself! Thank you for sharing the recipe. It's definitely a keeper.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
This recipe is the best! I've been making this recipe for many years and everyone who taste it want the recipe! I also add whatever nuts I have on hand, i.e., cashews. Don't be intimidated to try it, as it's so easy! To make clean-up a breeze, spray Pam on the baking sheets and the utensils used to mix the popcorn. Because it goes so fast, I've been "1 1/2x' ing" the recipe. Storing it in airtight canisters keeps it fresher longer.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I made this recipe using low-fat cream cheese and egg beaters and no one at the restaurant where I work could tell it was a "light" version. It is very good and not too sweet, just the right amount of sweetness!

Coconut Cream Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
For the longest time, I feared baking meringue pies until recently. Now, in our baker's absence, I've been requested to bake them! This is the best recipe, period! I do add 1/2 tsp. vanilla to the meringue for just a hint of flavor in the meringue.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This was a very good and hearty recipe. Once cooled, it was very thick so I added a can of chicken broth and adjusted the seasonings. I used my emersion blender for only a few seconds to leave some chunky texture, then topped the soup with some crispy bacon bits.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
These muffins were so delicious! To cut down on the calories even yet, I used fat-free plain yogurt instead of the buttermilk and substituted EggBeaters for the egg. I'll be making these again and again!

Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I made these for the first time and the first couple of balls were slow until I got the hang of dipping them in melted chocolate. I chilled them first as some reviewers suggested, then used a wooden toothpick instead of a fork to dip them. I submerged the ball almost all the way to the toothpick (revealing some of the dough), then used a second toothpick to remove the ball. Then I smoothed over the little "dent" on the top of the ball with a small touch of chocolate. Perfecto! The results were wonderful! I can't wait to bring them to work tomorrow! Thank you for a great-looking confection!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
The pot roast turned out amazing! It was so full of flavor and very tender. I cooked it on low for 6 hours. We had just returned from a late lunch of baby back ribs, and my husband had to sample it! He had three bites before finally pulling himself away from the counter! It's an absolutely wonderful, easy recipe!

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
These mashed potatoes were the best. I used 2% milk and "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" butter, to lower the calories. They were so creamy and rich-tasting! I'll definitely make them over and over again!!

Balsamic Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
This recipe was very quick and easy. I sauted chopped onions and browned the seasoned chicken. I also added pineapple apricot preserves to the balsamic vinegar, then reduced the sauce. I omitted the sweet potatoes. It was very yummy!

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
This recipe was so delicious! I followed the recipe as printed, and even though everyone loved it at work and it looked beautiful, the next time I make it, I'll make the adjustments other reviewers suggested. The brownie layer turned out moist, and I would've liked a bigger cheesecake layer, so I'll use three blocks of cream cheese instead of two, as others suggested. I'll also used melted chocolate as a drizzle instead of Hershey's chocolate syrup (what I had on hand) which was too thin and runny. To make a "lighter" version, I used Egg Beaters in the brownie and cheesecake layers, fat-free evaporated milk in the caramel sauce, and lower-fat cream cheese. With these changes, it tasted just as rich and decadent (and without all the guilt)! I will definitely make it again! I made three of these for a wedding reception, and they were a huge hit!

Coconut Cream Pie III

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
I thought this recipe was very good! I omitted the nutmeg and topped it with a light and fluffy meringue before topping it with toasted coconut. Delish! I will definitely make it again.

Ground Beef Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
This was a great, easy recipe. It was a little bland, so I added a couple dashes of Tabasco Chipotle Hot Sauce and it was absolutely wonderful! This one's a keeper.

Fresh Strawberry Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This is the very first recipe on this site that I did not like. I followed the recipe exactly as written, and I was disappointed with the results. The glaze was nice and clear while it was warm, but then turned opaque and rubbery when it cooled. I will not be making this again.

Three Hundred Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I can't say enougfh about this newly-discovered chocolate chip cookie recipe! The edges of the cookie turned out with just the right amount of crunch while the center was soft and baked to perfection! I changed the recipe amount to 12 servings and it yielded 3 dozen cookies which is just the right amount for our family! These cookies were awesome!!

Best Ever Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
This recipe was the best cheesecake I've ever made! I dressed it up by adding shaved chocolate and sliced strawberries along the outer edge. I'm throwing my old cheesecake recipe out!!

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
These muffins have great flavor and texture. I wished they rose a little higher, though. I cut the butter to 1/4 cup and sugar to 1/2 cup, and they were still plenty moist and sweet with the crunchy topping.
