Wisconsin Five-Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Wonderful! The family gobbled this down. I lacked a few ingredients so made several substitutions. Instead of classic swiss, I used Laughing Cow bites, a colby-monterray jack mix replaced the mozzarella and provolone, and I used milk in place of heavy cream. Overall, this was extremely satisfying.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Finally! This will be our go-to macaroni dish. It's so creamy, and the cottage cheese gives it an excellent texture. It's good even if you don't bake it and can easily withstand additions like broccoli, beans, carrots or other sneaky pureed add-ins.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
I really wanted to like this cake, especially since the ingredients were simple and the cake was fast to make. The cake is moist, but just doesn't have much flavor and the texture is too chewy. If you like boxed cake mixes, then this cake is definitely for you. Otherwise, maybe you could sub butter for oil and change the texture. It's better with frosting and the recipe here is okay. I used more milk than called for to make it spreadable.

Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
I followed the reviews and cut the powdered sugar in half. The frosting was delicious as a filling, but I think it would be too rich to fill and frost an entire cake. I would use the recipe as written to fill and frost a whole cake. I also needed more milk than called for to make it spreadable.

Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
These were extra simple since I had some shredded pork already in the freezer. I put it in a pot with the spices and let it simmer for a while. I didn't have an orange so used mango instead. Kids shoveled the pork in.

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
These are crispy on the outside, chewy in the middle, and perfectly delicious. I've made these according to the original recipe and according to some reviewers' advice to use 2/3 cup granulated sugar and 2/3 cup brown sugar. The recipe as posted tastes much better in my opinion than the recipe changed. Keep it the same and enjoy!

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
This review is for the cake only, as I did not make the filling or frosting. The cake is delicious - perfectly moist and dense. The flavor is best the second day. I made a 9x13, so I cut the baking powder back to 1.5 tsp, and used my own chocolate frosting recipe. I am a cake snob, and prefer scratch made, and it doesn't get much better than this.

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
For a crock-pot meal this one is pretty good. The sauce was a good consistency, meaning not too runny, and the flavor was alright. However, taste-wise, there's no comparison to real chicken alfredo.

Barbecue Tofu Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
Admittedly, I have never tried tofu before. I followed others advice about draining and freezing, fried the tofu, and served the finished product on sandwich thins. This was alright by me, and one of my kids really loved it. A vegetarian friend thought it was especially tasty. However, we didn't like it enough for the tofu to make it's way onto our regular menu rotation.

Creamy Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
This tastes delicious and is so simple! We will never go back to store bought. It's going to be hard to let it sit for an hour.

Richard and Suzanne's Famous Red Beans and Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Of the red beans and rice recipes on the site, this is our favorite - kids included. It has the best flavor and consistency. I omit the bacon, green pepper, and butter simply because I didn't have those ingredients on hand or it seemed unnecessary. I also typically make the red beans from dried beans. It's a hearty meal for supper, and it's yummy warmed up and served as a dip with ritz crackers.

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
These are the BEST carrots. I use butter and add a dash of salt. The longer they sit, the better they get.

Sausage & White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Pretty good soup. I crumbled and browned sweet Italian sausage rather than cooking it whole. I also added garlic with the other vegetables. I let it simmer for about an hour and then added a few handfuls of kale.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Surprisingly easy and very tasty. I made the dough in the bread machine, used white wheat flour in place of all-purpose, and seasoned the pretzels with butter and spices prior to baking. These are delicious topped with cinnamon sugar and drizzled with honey.

A hit at our house. The kids love to help roll into balls and sugar.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IX

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I used craisins instead of raisins and thought these were delish. A cookie I don't feel bad about eating!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I never liked pumpkin until these muffins. The flavor is mild though. I follow the directions exactly and use the streusel topping for other muffins as well.

Sausage Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
It's a Christmas tradition to have this for breakfast. It cooks while the kids open gifts. I omit the mushrooms and cut the cheese in half. I typically use monterey jack or colby-jack. It also makes a great supper.

Chicken Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
We leave out the mushrooms and almonds and let the soup get really thick. It's great with some warm bread. It's equally wonderful the next day.
