Melt In Your Mouth Toffee

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
This recipe is amazing, but you should definitely read up on how to handle sugar if you aren't familiar with it (it's not that hard, there are just a few tricks). Speaking of tricks, I tried the one that MommyFromSeattle tried, but I replaced the corn syrup with molasses. I also sprinkled a little coarse salt in the pan along with the nuts (candy, chocolate and salt is always an amazing combo in my books). The recipe turned out perfectly! My only regret was cutting the recipe in half instead of making the full batch. Two huge thumbs up from me!

Ginny's Cheezy Macaroni

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This recipe was so astoundingly easy I wouldn't have even tried it if it hadn't received so many glowing reviews. I too did a bit of tweaking to the recipe. I added the pepper but left out the salt. Cheese is so salty to begin with, the last thing I figured this dish needed was extra salt. I did add a little nutmeg and used a 70/30 very old cheddar/mozzarella combo (although I'll used orange cheddar next time - it looked a little anemic). I like crunchy topping on my mac & cheese, so I took my frustrations out with a rolling pin on a tube of saltine crackers and sprinkled them over the top half-way through baking. These didn't turn out crunchy enough for me, so I will likely use the tried-and-true old stand-by of crushed Corn Flakes next go-round. A definite family go-to recipe - made lots for a little!

No-Guilt Zesty Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
I took this dip along with a veggie platter to a pot-luck get-together with my friends on Saturday night. Not only was it a simple make-ahead recipe which is ideal for me (I have MS), but everyone RAVED about the taste! One friend called this 'a party in your mouth' lol! I was also so pleased to be able to tell them that the items in the dip were reduced fat and reduced calories. That just made them love it even more! Thanks so much for sharing.
