Simple Savory Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I drizzled olive oil on my tenderloin and then added the seasonings. I cooked covered for the first 45minutes and uncovered the last 15minutes and it was perfect.

Jeanine's Decadent Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
These were not my families idea of a brownie, they like the traditional fudge, chewy brownie. The flavor was good but not the texture. They decided because of the texture these were chocolate bread. I did make some small alterations. I used half oil, half applesauce and doubled the cocoa powder. The amount of cocoa powder in this recipe is considerably less than other similar brownie recipes and did not seem right.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
Growing up in the south I have eaten a bunch of mac n cheese. I typically make a roux and have never tried the egg method was I was intrigued by this recipe. I read other reviews and was concerned about possible texture issues. I knew to temper my eggs to keep from curdling but the mac and cheese ended up with white curds. How disappointing :( I did not like this at all, I could taste the eggs and I strongly dislike cooked eggs. My older 2 boys ate it and thought it was ok. Upon further questioning I got stares of what did you sneak into my food. It is important to read the other reviews and follow suggestions such as adding extra cheese (I increased to 3 cups) and covering while baking .I think this is possibly a good base but it needs a bunch of tweaks to get the recipe just right and curd free.

Monkey Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
I made these in foil cupcake liners based on other reviews that the sauce pools at the bottom. That was an understatement. The sauce bubbled up and was all over my cupcake pan and under the liners making a huge mess. I would probably half the sauce if I made these again since so little of it actually stayed on the monkey bread. That is my major complaint otherwise 3 out of 4 of my kids and my husband gobbled these up

Grands!® Ham and Cheese Melts

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
These need some tweaks. I made the recipe as written and the american cheese (kraft singles) oozed out when cut in half and the ham when left sliced whole came out with the first bite. If I made these again I would try a different cheese like cheddar, swiss or maybe munster. I also served these with dijon mustard because they were pretty blah and plain as is.

These were quick and easy and my kids and husband loved them. I made cheese pizza's because that is what my kids voted to have. You can personalize these many different ways.

Grands!® Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
5 out of 6 family members said this was ok. My son who eats anything ate one bite and hated it which surprised us. The biggest complaint is that my husband and kids could tell by taste that although this was "homemade but it wasn't homemade", meaning it wasn't made from scratch like they are use to. I did use butter instead of margarine and the reduced fat wheat grands. I do not think those minor changes affected the overall recipe. I had no issues with the brown sugar glaze and thought it was just the perfect amount.

Healthier Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
Very easy to make. I used Crisco as it is trans-fat free. I also used organic vanilla as that is what I had on hand. For the milk I added until the frosting was at my desired consistency (I wanted to be able to pipe it for gingerbread men). We used for gingerbread and roll out sugar cookies.

Butterscotch Haystacks

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
The only issue I have with this recipe is the marshmallows. Haystacks are sugary sweet enough without them that I omitted them and used peanuts. This is a classic recipe that my family loves.

Dark Chocolate Cherry Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
Very easy to make fudge. I boiled for exactly 5 minutes. My family didn't like the cherries but it was still good and I would make it again without the cherries.

Almond Macaroons II

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
This was my first attempt at macaroons and now I am hooked. You do not want to drop these by heaping teaspoons though or you will end up with large macaroons. A piping bag would be better and then you can better control size. Room temp egg whites are a must when trying to whip them into stiff peaks.

Spicy White Chili with Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
Made as directed with minor alterations....used roasted Hatch green chile I had in my freezer from the season this year,frozen corn and homemade chicken broth. I also used the optional seeded jalapeno and this was spicy! After initial tasting I went back and added 8oz of cream cheese to attempt to cool things down a bit and give the chili the creamy factor I was looking for. It helped some and this will be something I make again.

Cheese Mexican Corn Spoon Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
My family loved this! I doubled the recipe and made a minor tweak and a substitution. I used ground turkey instead of beef due to food allergies. I also used roasted Hatch chile that I had frozen from when they were in season (I used 3-4)instead of canned. We love Hatch green chile around here:) I used cheddar- jack cheese because that is what I had on hand but I added more than 4TB to the top. I used about a cup instead. 4Tb (the doubled amount) just did not look like enough.

Jumbo Dark Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
I should have headed the cautions of the cookie being too salty but I didn't since I typically like the salt and chocolate pairings but in this cookie it was too much. Unsalted butter needs to used or Salted butter and 1/2tsp of salt omitted. My family on the other hand didn't mind the saltiness and gobbled these cookies up. I did chill the dough but found it was a mistake or rather I let it chill for too long and the dough become too hard to scoop with a cookie scoop so I had to let it soften some. I made these smaller cookies as well and baked for 13-14minutes.

White Chip Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
As is these cookies do not have enough orange flavor for our personal preference but they are still good. I added a splash of organic orange extract, a splash of vanilla (I cannot make a cookie without vanilla)and the juice of a orange. I chilled the dough before baking. Plus I probably had a full tablespoon of zest and these were perfect for us.

Moist and Savory Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
This was ok. My family didn't really like it but we aren't big fans of "box/bag" stuffing. I did cook the onion and celery with butter first out of habit.

Praline-Pumpkin Mousse Cornucopias

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Easy to follow directions to a beautiful delicious desert. I did add a few other spices (cloves and nutmeg) but I am sure this would have been just as good without.
