Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2015
If made as per the recipe, these muffins turn out VERY dry, though still pretty tasty. To aid with the dryness, I would suggest the same additions as other reviewers: adding 1 cup of milk (rather than 3/4), being liberal with the oil, and adding a splash of vanilla.

Chocolate Spoons

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2015
Simple and a beautiful gift idea. I used crushed Werther's, mini marshmallows, crushed peppermints, and Andes chips on my spoons. Based on other reviews, I did not immediately refrigerate, but allowed the spoons to cool first. This is also a great idea for a child to make...my 6-year-old help me both with dipping and sprinkling.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2014
These tasted great! I followed the recipe on the marinade and I will definitely follow the recipe in the future. I also added pineapple and apples to my skewers (which doesn't impact the recipe itself). It's great as an appetizer or a main course!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2014
This is so fantastic! I followed the recipe, using mini-chocolate chips as so many suggested. This was part of my daughter's birthday cake, and I found it easy to frost and decorate. When I was mixing the batter, it had this interesting, blob-like consistency that made it so easy to pour. It rose beautifully in the oven, too. Because this was for a birthday, I didn't use a bundt cake pan, but rather 2 8x8 square pans. This cake is moist and chocolatey, and definitely a go-to recipe!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2014
Maybe I did something horribly wrong, but the cake had the consistency/texture of cornbread, and it didn't rise properly. I had to scramble for a different recipe :(

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
I can't believe how great this recipe is! I followed the recipe using fat free cream cheese and lite whipped topping to reduce the calories. I couldn't taste the cream cheese (which is a good thing), but it provided an interesting texture and stability. I liked that it held shape after I served the first spoonful, so it didn't turn into runny mess. For those who said the pudding came out runny, it might be because you didn't whip it long enough (I whipped it in my blender for 2-3 minutes). If you like a good banana pudding, seriously, give this a try. It's almost as good after 5 days in the fridge as it was the first day. Don't be intimidated by the ingredients; it is quick to throw together and relatively mess-free!

Baked Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
I was worried this recipe would be too salty with the dressing and onion soup mix, but it turned out great! I served it over white rice, and my family seemed to really like it. I used Catalina french dressing to give it a little extra flavor. I like that I can throw it together in 5 minutes, then spend 45 minutes or so with my family before throwing together the rice and vegis (or, in other words, I don't spend an hour+ cooking on a weeknight). Great recipe!

Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
My favorite holiday cookie! These tasted so great. I was a little leery of the batter when I pulled a rock of batter from my refrigerator, but it baked beautifully. I couldn't find Andes mints anywhere, so I sprinkled Andes chips on top for the same effect. I couldn't stop eating them!

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
These were pretty tasty and a welcome change of pace. I'm still working on the balance of lemon juice I prefer, but it's definitely a keeper when I need a simple, unusual cookie!

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
Delicious! I omitted the walnuts because I don't care for them, and the recipe turned out great. You definitely need to keep the batter refrigerated or it becomes impossible to work with. I used a 1-inch cookie scoop, pressed a Rolo in the middle, then covered the bottom. It made the perfect size cookie and kept my hands (reasonably) clean.

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
I only had ground seasonings on hand, but it still tasted great! My family loved it for holiday parties.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
Amazing! And you can use whatever fruit combination you want for the salsa. My preference is apples, bananas, kiwi, and strawberries with a little grape jelly mixed in. The chips and salsa are always a huge hit!

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
I have made this recipe as is and using all butter, as recommended by other users. I like it both ways; however, I prefer it with 3 cups of powdered sugar per batch rather than 4, otherwise it tends to get too sweet. If you are icing a cake, you will need to at LEAST double the recipe! My choice was 4 or 5 stars, and 5 stars is much more accurate than 4...I would probably rate this at 4.5+ stars.
