Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
this is a great frosting that works for cakes.. add more milk for fluffier and less dense frosting. or keep it stiff for piping.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
used regular yeast and flour due to not having anything else on hand. Followed the recipe exactly as written and its awesome! Came out beautiful. I have no idea why some people have issues with it rising to much..maybe climate is the reason?

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
This is not an "easy" pie recipe. I made the sauce as I rolled out the pie dough and it got super thick. Had to add more water to it. Then pouring it over the lattice was not easy. Its hard to get the sauce ( even when its runny) down into the apples..I had to use a skewer and shift the apples around to make it flow down in the fruit. This pie does taste amazing and is worth the work. I recommend tossing the brown sugar mixture with the apples an skip the pouring it over top. Save about 1/2c to drizzle over top. I did add 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
I downsized the recipe by half with the apple mixture but kept the topping the same.. baked it in a smaller pan. Yum and probably the best recipe I have ever made of apple crisp. Will make again!

easy and turned out tasty. I think the key is kneading it well and I used the 8 min guideline.

Best Formula Three-Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This turned out awesome. I used Swiss and Gouda and fresh parmesean. Used a nice white wine that I would drink. I shredded and added the flour to that as others mentioned and it worked great. I melted it on the stove top in a large pot then switched it to my fondue pot so it was faster :) Yumo!

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
yummy and easy. I used the tips for 1100 watt and it turned out great. One batch stayed chewy but I think it was due to not cooking long enough. :)

Stir Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I just made this and it was amazing! I opted out of the teriyaki sauce because I didn't have any.. but this was still yummy and blended better with the burgers. I did add a bit of salt and its amazing! Make this!

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
this is so a very kid friendly soup. Its cheap to make and quick! I used smoked black pepper bacon from my deli counter at the grocery store. My kids don't even realize they are eating leeks. Only thing that would make it easier is if the recipe called for cups of sliced leeks.. they come in various sizes so its a guess if she means small ones or large ones.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
This is Awesome. Its super kid friendly and I was very fast even though I had to stir fry some diced chicken breast because I didn't have any cooked ready. I added Bell peppers that I stir fried after the chicken and I added 2 garlic cloves that I also stir fried. I am a soy Sauce lover so I increased that as well. My kids loved it and asked for 3rds. Add a salad and you have a whole dinner that's easy and good for you :)

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
Followed the recipe just as written. Amazing. My whole family loved it. I have 4 kids, 14,9,5,3 and they all liked it. Only thing was that they didn't really care for the sun dried tomatoes and picked them off to the side, which made me think to chop them super fine next time so they eat them. I doubled the recipe to serve 8 . Will for sure make it again!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
Great flavor and the sauce base was wonderful. My only issue is that the refrigerated biscuts were kind of heavy and slimey. I took them out and made the old stand by of the bisquick ones and that was so much better! Nice and Light and fluffy!
