Mini Ham And Cheese Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Excellent idea and very versatile! Can't wait to have them again...the poppy seeds really add a neat crunch *and* flavor for me. I, like many, used Hawaiian sweet rolls.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Delicious and simple to make. I've never eaten at Olive Garden, so I can't speak to it tasting like theirs, but it's very, very good. Will definitely add this to my soup rotation.

Soft Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
These were delicious, easy (very!) and made a ton, which was great for Christmas gifting. I dipped the tops in silver, gold, red, and green colored sugar before baking. Bonus? The house smelled wonderful as they baked!

Secret Recipe Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
We love these! The French-fried onions give them an extra flavor not found in most sausage balls...don't overcook these...the sausage WILL cook through in a short amount of time and the final product will be tender and tasty! Even my daughter, who dislikes ground meat of any kind, will eat these. They are traditional for our Christmas Eve snack supper and reheated Christmas morning.

Crackers a la Yvette

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
So good, so simple, so addictive! Made exactly to the recipe and they're just delicious...they're not at all good FOR you, but man, do they taste wonderful.

Jan's Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Simple and cute as can be! I made mini raspberry cheesecakes for my husband's 50th birthday and topped them with these...they looked great and complemented the cupcakes perfectly. Thanks for the great idea!

No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
They were ok...nothing I'd make again. I made them for someone else and they said they were good, but didn't seem too impressed.

Tonkatsu / Katsu Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
It tastes like barbeque sauce...nothing special or exotic at all. Sorry, but this wasn't impressive.

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
It's pan-fried chicken...nothing special at all. I should have expected it from the ingredients. Absolutely fine, but not something I need a recipe for!

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This really was the perfect way to use up leftover turkey...I used a pre-made crust and used chicken stock intend of bouillon and water, everything else was done by the recipe. This was first time to make a pot pie and it definitely won't be the last. We all really liked it!

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
A little bland, but that can be easily doctored to make it more flavorful. I refuse to poach chicken...I don't care for it, so I cooked the chicken in foil in the oven, seasoned with lemon slices, lemon pepper, dill and garlic. I used reduced fat soups and fat free sour cream and omitted the butter, just adding crushed crackers on top. I also used no yolks egg noodles. This is for my mother-in-law, who is undergoing chemo, so it will be easy for her to heat up and not too spicy for her upset stomach. I think it's exactly right.

CopyCat Starbucks Classic Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I made this the simple way and didn't do the topping running through the cake, just on top. I didn't double it, either. This is very good...very moist and tender. I don't eat the coffee cake atStarbucks because I'm a type II diabetic, but my daughter said it's better...not as dry. It only took 38 minutes in my oven, so be sure to check occasionally...50 minutes would have ruined this beauty for me!

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
100% perfection. I followed the recipe to the letter...there's not a thing that needs to be changed. The zip and texture of the crystalized ginger makes this recipe for me. I frosted them with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and sprinkled on a bit of cinnamon and sugar to finish. Absolutely wonderful...I make a LOT of cupcakes and this is going into my favorites folder!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
This was the first time I'd ever made meatballs and despite reading so many differing opinions on cooking them, I decided to make them in the sauce without cooking first, so I chose this recipe. Simple, delicious...we loved them. There was no "extra" grease in my sauce, which I'd read often happens and I even added Italian sausage to the beef! I doubled the recipe and sent half to my in-laws and froze half our our remaining half. There's plenty! Will definitely make again.

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
It was easy, it was tender, but it wasn't anything at all spectacular. I don't know that I'll make it again.

Cracked Caramel Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I love this! The texture of the pie is superb and then the surprising crunch of the cracked caramel topping takes it over the top! If you like pumpkin pie and wonderful presentation, you must try this recipe!

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I've never had Mongolian Beef in a restaurant, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was simple to put together...I reduced the amount of sugar after reading reviews, but I didn't change anything else. My main complaint it that it was basically just sweet meat...not bad, but sort of one-note. We added some red pepper flakes and it was much better. Next time I'll cook it with added pepper. Not sure if it will be authentic Mongolian beef, but it will suit our tastes much better.

Milky Way® Cupcake Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I wasn't sure after reading the review if this was going to be a hit for us, but I'd bought the Milky Way candy, so I forged ahead. I frosted Martha Stewart's yellow buttermilk cupcakes. Cut back on the butter and increased the milk a bit. Didn't measure the powdered sugar, just added and mixed with a hand mixer until it was the consistency I wanted. Even after chilling in the fridge, it coats the cupcakes more like a glaze than a frosting. My husband's comment was, "It's ok, but not one of my favorites." I'll take a few to work tomorrow and see if they're more of a hit there.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
This is super delicious! I've been trying different mushroom soup recipes lately and this one is my current favorite. My only changes were to sauté the onion in a little extra virgin olive oil before I added the mushrooms and broth. I also added a tablespoon of white wine because I don't keep sherry around. I can't wait to eat this! It's a cold, rainy evening and fresh soup is going to hit the spot.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
I can't figure out how this gets such high ratings. I followed the directions to the letter, my yeast was fresh and I checked the temp on my water...110. I usually make Jay's Signature crust from this site, so I can make dough. This never rose, was very dry and hard to"spread" on my pizza pan and although it appeared done, it was like biting into raw, hard dough after I added the toppings and cooked again. If I knew what went wrong, I might try this again, but I'll stick to pizza on nights I have time to let the dough rise.
