Banana Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
I make a very similar version of this trifle. The only real difference is that I substitute spice cake for the pound cake. It brings out the banana flavor and gives the recipe a kick!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This dip was fantastic! I did make a couple of changes, though. First, I mixed a pound of ground beef with the refried beans (I cooked the hamburger in about 3/4 of the taco seasoning). Secondly, I added 1/4 of the taco seasoning to the sour cream/cream cheese layer for a little extra taste. Third, I used half cheddar cheese and half taco cheese for some extra Mexican flavoring. Finally, I didn't use lettuce after reading some of the reviews, but I'm sure that had no affect on the taste. I will absolutely make this again!

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!

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
Easy and amazing! Grid pretzels are best, but mini-pretzels will substitute in a pinch. I used the Dove caramels instead of Rolos because I prefer the taste/texture of Dove. Also, I followed the advice of several other reviewers and baked the pecan on top of the chocolate, then lightly pressed it down when I took the turtles from the oven. These were a HUGE hit at several holiday celebrations. These are too easy not to try at least once.

A little time consuming to create, but so worth it. My family loved it!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
I used a regular beer and it tasted okay. Next time I'll try a light beer so there isn't such an overwhelming beer smell and taste.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
I've made this for several holiday parties now, and it's always a big hit! I would suggest freezing this overnight for the best effect. It's excellent as is, but for those looking for an extra "kick," I add a splash of vodka.

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 :(

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!

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
Like other reviews, I decreased the sugar by 1/4c. I am a sugar fanatic, but the full amount would have been a little too much. I made a double batch for a party, and it was almost gone by the end. This really is the best lemonade ever!

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
This tasted great! The only substitution I made was to use Italian sausage instead of pork sausage for a little more taste/spice. Definitely a keeper!

Glazed Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
The cookies were a little flat, not fluffy at all. But the taste was very good!

Oreo™ Cookie Bark

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
I can't believe how well this went over with my office. Several people begged me for the recipe. It takes 5 minutes to throw together and turns out beautifully. Just make sure you don't make the batch too thick or it will never break!

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
Incredibly salty (though still yummy)! I would suggest using some low sodium soup to balance the salt, if you can find it. I've also used 1 can of cream of mushroom soup in substitute of 1 can of cream of chicken. This really is a decent recipe over all but, even as someone who adores salt, I thought the original recipe was too much.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Amazing. Just amazing. I'm always experimenting with different types of cookies, but this is the cookie everyone begs for the most. I did change the recipe slightly as recommended by other reviews. I substituted 1/2c brown sugar for 1/2c of the white sugar, I baked the cookies for 12-13 minutes instead of 15, I was far more liberal with my spices (and that includes adding it to the icing), and I drizzled the icing rather than drowning the cookie. I've already made 3 batches since "pumpkin season" began, and I anticipate baking at least another 3-5 batches before Christmas. It will be a hit at your Office Christmas party!

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!
