Luck o' the Irish Brownie

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
These brownies were a huge disappointment. Technically speaking they came out ok - that is I didn't have issues with the consistency of the layers or anything like that - I just thought they tasted more like a light chocolate cake to me and the mint layer was sweet. I was hoping for a dense dark chocolate flavor for the brownie that could help balance the icky sweetness of the mint layer. I have a monster sweet tooth but overall these were just WAY too sweet for me to enjoy. It's all a matter of personal preference I suppose as others seemed to love them but they were not for me or anyone else in the house.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
If I could give this pot pie 10 stars I would! I'm not even a huge pot pie fan but the family was in the mood for some comfort food and I could not be happier I chose this to try. The only thing I did differently was to cook the chicken and veggies in Chicken broth rather than water - used my old stand by Betty Crocker pie crust recipe and OMG it was off the charts good. I do not like bland food and don't understand some of the reviews saying they needed to add more seasoning - maybe my Trader Joe's Chicken broth was just that flavorful? Will definitely be a staple in our house for these long Minnesota winters!

Seasoned Swai Fish Fillet

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
This was a really nice way to eat fish. I do not enjoy eating fish but try to work it in when I can as I become more health conscious. This marinade made the fish very easy to eat which is a plus in my book. 4 stars is the highest I could bring myself to give any fish recipe so it is high praise! I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of mixing in the paprika rather than sprinkling on. Aesthetically it would have looked better sprinkled I suppose but taste wise didn't make much difference. This will be a go-to when I "need" to eat my fish :)

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
Absolutely delicious! I've made it just as directed as well as cut back on some of the spices - mostly out of laziness and not wanting to get them all out of the cupboard. The 2nd time I just used brown sugar, onion & garlic powders, cayenne and black pepper. I admit I liked the 2nd version best as the flavors didn't overpower the remainder of the meal however both ways were fantastic. This is going to be a staple in our house.

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
Delicious!! This is one of those dishes I always associate with summer BBQs but have never thought to make it myself. I decided to make it for our Memorial Day BBQ this year and am so glad I did! The only change I made was decreased the butter in the crust to 1/2 c and used 2 heaping cups of pretzels as I like a thicker crust. I followed the numerous suggestions to chill between layers etc and it turned out perfectly. Thanks for posting!

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
This is our go to french toast recipe. It takes a little extra work from what I'm used to making (just eggs, cinnamon and a splash of milk) but it's worth the effort! Much more fluffy toast this way. Thanks for the recipe!

Thumbprint Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
The base of this cookie is just what I was looking for to use up the lemon curd in my fridge. It didn't disappoint! Very soft and the perfect shortbread consistency. They do crumble a little, so eat em in one bite! Not a problem in my book :)

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2013
I usually make the Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip cookie recipe from the site, however I thought I'd give this one a try as my hubster likes his cookies a little crispier. BIG mistake. Neither of us were a fan of these - as they turned out very cake-like. I'm an avid baker and I know how to measure ingredients and followed this recipe to the letter. For me, it just didn't turn out.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
I can't say enough good things about these bars. I have picky breakfast eaters - 19 mos and 3 yrs old - and they DEVOUR these. I have been making them at least once a week since I discovered the recipe. Well done!!

Heather's Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I have a love/hate relationship with salmon. I love the health benefits but often don't care for the strong taste. This recipe gives the salmon an amazing flavor! Will be my go to salmon marinade for sure!!

Lance's French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
Delicious! French onion soup is one of those things that I try everywhere I go in hopes of finding "the best" and this recipe is awesome! The only changes I made were to only use 3 onions, and used half Marsala wine and half Sherry in place of the white wine - I like my soup a little sweeter so this was perfect for me. I also didn't have swiss cheese so I used sliced provolone. It was ok, but I'm still in search of the perfect cheese topping. All in all this is a fantastic recipe and very easy to whip up at home when I have a craving for it.

Fruity Angel Food Trifle

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
A definite winner! The only thing I changed was the fruit combination - I used strawberries, blueberries, fresh pineapple and mandarin oranges. I also used the French Vanilla Cool Whip. It turned out fantastic - will definitely be making this one again.

Fruit Sherbet

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
I cannot say enough good things about this recipe! I used fresh squeezed juices straight from the juicer, 1% milk and reduced the sugar to 1 cup to try to make it a little more healthy and it was absolutely delicious!! I will be trying new combinations of juices in the future, but this was awesome as is. Thanks so much for sharing!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Really good flavor! I wanted to use it piped on cupcakes and the consistency was a little soft for that, but I just refrigerated until ready to serve and they were great!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Love, love, love this recipe! It's the closest thing I've found to the version I love in a local restaurant. I followed the advice of some other reviewers and used a good quality sweet Marsala, doubled the sauce & mushrooms and added a bit of half & half and cornstarch/water mixture to thicken. Next time I think I made the mistake of doubling the olive oil & butter when I doubled the sauce, but I definitely did not need to do so as it was quite oily. Will definitely be adding this to my list of favorites!

Creamy Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This is the frosting recipe I have been searching for!! It is awesome for piping and tastes SO much better than traditional buttercream frosting. I took all the suggestions of "JustMe" (including subbing almond extract for vanilla) and it turned out perfectly! My advice: if you think it isn't the right consistency, just keep beating on high, mine took about 10 mins before it was a nice whipped consistency - I was a little worried along the way because it was looking quite curdled, but just be patient and hang in there - it will turn out! This will definitely be my go to recipe from now on. Update: I tried adding 1/4 cup pureed strawberries to use on vanilla cupcakes - DELICIOUS!! You need to whip quite a bit longer after adding the strawberries as it will look curdled and gross - but just let it whip away and eventually it will come around.

Crab-Artichoke Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Great combination of ingredients! The only thing I changed was to use imitation crab meat instead of canned and a pre-made thin crust for my base. Will definitely be adding this to my weekly rotation.

Cookie Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
I've been making this salad for years and it's always a hit! You can use oreos instead of the fudge stripe cookies and call it "dirt salad" too - kiddos love it!

Butter Brickle Frozen Delight

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
This is very good! I only gave it 4 stars because it was suuuuper sweet. I love sweets more than the next person, but this got to be a bit much. My advice - take a small piece and off set the sweetness with a big glass of milk!

Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
Made the recipe exactly as stated and they were very tasty! I think it would make a great base muffin recipe to add whichever kind of fruit you'd like. I wasn't a huge fan of the streusel topping however, I will keep searching for the "perfect streusel". Update: I tried brown sugar in place of the white sugar in the streusel topping - MUCH better! Would give them 5 stars with this sub.
