Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I used 2 c. chocolate chips instead of any walnuts. I baked them longer than 12 minutes since they seemed gooey when I checked them, but maybe I should have pulled them out at 12 because they seemed dry to me a day or 2 later.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Couldn't be easier! I didn't have Italian dressing on hand so I used Balsamic Vinegarette. I still prefer to make my own bbq sauce, but this came together so quickly, sometimes that's more important.

White Almond Wedding Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
This cake is perfection! I have made a lot of cakes and this one really hits the spot. You must try this to believe how good it is. I made this for my husband's 30th birthday party and everyone loved it. This is way better than some of the cakes I've ordered from bakeries. Definitely try this and follow exactly, I wouldn't add anything. I frosted with a simple vanilla almond buttercream icing, 3 c. confectionary sugar, 1/3 c. butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp. almond extract and 1-2 Tbsp. milk. Make sure to read the recipe correctly to use the right size pan. I read too fast and used a 7x11 inch pan and it came out perfectly but very high and took forever to bake at 325. I think a 9x13 would be fine also. thank you CUPYCAKESMURF!

Pineapple Ham and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
Nice sweet rice recipe. I used this with chicken BBQ. Make sure you measure your rice after cooking it to be sure you have 2 cups, this might help make sure it's not too liquidy. I drained the pineapple and skipped the ham. I'll be tripling this recipe for a party this weekend!

Ashley's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
Thanks Ashley! I used semi-sweet instead of milk chocolate chips but everything else I followed to a T. They look good and taste even better! I had to quick package them up so I wouldn't eat them all!

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
I didn't have any taco sauce on hand, so I used taco seasoning mixed with water, well I should have known that'd be too watery, so my shells did leak a bit when cut to eat. It was still good and next time I'd just make sure to use taco sauce and also my husband didn't like the tortilla chips baked on, he said he wants those on the side. With some of the juice they got mushy. First time using stuffed shells, next time I'd make a few extra just in case.

Raspberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
Much easier than I imagined. I used fresh peaches and mixed them with the cream cheese and a bit of Splenda.

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
This is a great recipe, I'm always looking for peach dessert recipes in August and this one is a keeper! I omitted the sugar and water, our peaches are juicy and sweet enough. I creamed the cream cheese and butter into the cake mix and sprinkled it all on top of the peaches. Delicious!

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I cut the icing in 1/2 for a bundt pan. The bundt size took 50-53 minutes to bake. I sprayed it well and let cool slightly before flipping it out. Cool before icing.

Gingerbread Waffles with Hot Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I've made these a few times since 2002, just never rated them before. I do add some sugar to sweeten them to our liking, and I have never made the sauce. We usually serve ice cream over them.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Makes 6 mini-loaves, I used them for gifts (the ones I didn't eat myself!). The mini loaves took 40-45 minutes and I absolutely loved the crispy edges on this bread. Very good!

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I doubled the recipe and divided into 2 dishes for 2 dinners. I changed the American cheese to shredded cheddar. Yes, it does look soupy when you put it in the oven but it absorbs and I wouldn't change the measurements at all. Remember to only cook the elbows for 6 minutes, then they will still absorb the sauce during baking. Loved by my family at a BBQ last night. Thanks!

Fruit Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
My jam was hard to spread but that was just the type I had, so it didn't get even. I used an 11x7 pan based on reviews that it was too thin in a 9x13, but they were kinda thick, I think the 9x13 would have been fine. 35 minutes was too long, I should have checked sooner and the oatmeal was browned too much.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I've made these with both vanilla pudding or chocolate pudding, whatever I have on hand. Makes a delicious cookie with a wonderful texture. I halve the recipe and use 1 box of sugar-free pudding, makes about 3 dozen cookies. Would be great for a bake sale.

Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
I loved the idea of making these but was hoping for a stronger taste. I'm comparing them to an appetizer I had at 2 different restaurants, and those definitely had more zip to it. I'm going to keep looking for another recipe, this just was just too bland for me. I'm bummed since I went to the store just to get the ingredients I didn't have. We don't like cherries so we omitted those. I doubled the vinegar and teriyaki measurements too.

No-Fuss Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Recipe worked perfectly for me. I used Splenda instead of sugar. Delicious and easy with leftover rice!

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
Used an eye-of-round roast and the only thing I'd do differently is pour the juice over the shredded meat before serving so it could soak in. The sandwiches would have been even better if the meat was completely covered in the juice instead of just dipped in.

One Minute Chocolate Icing

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
Fudge-like was a good description. It's not your fluffy smooth icing if that's what you are looking for. Tasted great on vanilla cupcakes. Didn't need to use mixer for last 3 minutes, just did by hand with a whisk. Using sugar instead of 10x like a lot of other icings gives you a grainier icing, so skip this one if that bothers you.

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
I didn't add anything and they were great! My 4 year old ate them up! Loved the browning on the top, delicious! I thickened the milk, butter, and flour in the microwave ahead of time, then layered with potatoes for about 45 minutes in 375 degree oven.
