Easy and excellent. Very dense and fudgy.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
It was a hit with everyone, and very easy and quick. I thought it was good, just nothing that particularly stood out. I took the suggestion of adding a little shortening to the chocolate chips, and had no problems cutting them. Next time I will add a bit of almond extract to the graham cracker layer.

Big Al's Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly and marinated the chicken for eight hours. Only difference was I added salt per my family's preference (maybe 1/2 Tbsp.) and broiled the chicken in the oven. The chicken was very tender, but I prefer highly flavorful food and found this chicken very bland. One son liked it a lot, and the rest of the family thought it was average.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
This was very tasty. I really enjoyed the addition of the sun-dried tomatoes, and found myself making sure I got one in every bite. Next time I'll add a few more. I eyeballed the oil, and used less than half called for--just enough to give the tomatoes a little sheen. I also used dried basil, since that's what I had on hand, and omitted the mozzarella, and served on gluten-free crackers instead of bread. Hated to do both, but am watching the waistline and am gluten sensitive. It was still very good. I knocked off one star because it could use a little something, a little extra flavor. Maybe a bit more balsamic vinegar. But I am definitely keeping this one to experiment further. Thanks for a keeper!

Mexican Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
This was very good. Changes I made were mixing the black beans with the salsa, etc. and browning chicken tenders beforehand and changing bake time accordingly. Four of us liked it a lot. Picky #5 liked the chicken, but not the beans. I served with grated Mexican cheese on the side, and with quinoa as a side dish. Healthy, low-fat, high protein, high fiber and gluten free. It would have been really fast and easy if I hadn't browned the chicken beforehand. I think next time I'll leave that step out.

Easy Cheese Ball II

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I'm a huge fan of cream cheese dips, and this one was not very good. Maybe it needed a few more ingredients. After tasting it, I added a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce, which helped some. My daughter, who is crazy for ranch dip and cream cheese, liked it a lot.

Creamy PHILLY Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
We loved it. I used fat-free cream cheese, melted on a very low heat stirring constantly, and it came out nice and smooth. I approximated amounts, and probably doubled the pesto, as we love pesto, and used less chicken broth, as we like a thicker sauce. Rubbed the chicken with pepper and garlic salt before grilling. I had the leftover cold sauce with raw carrots the next day. That was good, too!

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
My 11 year old daughter made these for a cookie swap, and they turned out delicious. We made one with devil's food cake mix and one with yellow cake mix. This is the easiest cookie recipe ever. Thanks!

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I had four hungry kids and a hungry husband clamoring for dinner, which was running late. This fit the bill for a quick recipe for boneless chicken thighs. *Everyone* raved about it, and that is rarer than a total lunar eclipse. I am thrilled that I've found another easy meal to go into rotation, and will share this recipe with friends and family, too. I used 12 thighs, kept the butter amount the same (1/2 c.) and doubled the garlic and soy sauce. I dipped the breasts in the mixture, then broiled for 10 minutes on one side and 7 on the other. I like my chicken a little on the dry side, and this was perfect for me. I had lots of the butter mixture left over, enough to make again tomorrow night. :-) The pan drippings are heavenly. I'm saving them for soup or rice.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
This was an easy, basic recipe. I made it in the pressure cooker, and substituted cooking wine for the vermouth. We all thought it was way too bland, but then, we prefer very flavorful foods. When I reheated the leftovers, I added about 2 Tbs. Montreal steak seasoning. That got rave reviews from the whole family.

Rachel's Cranberry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
Oh wow, I make a pretty good chicken salad but this one was amazing! DH and I both loved it. I just estimated the ingredients and left out the apples because I didn't have any, plus I don't think it would keep as well, and substituted dry onions for the green. I also added a few stalks of finely chopped celery. This is a keeper!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Easy and delicious! My picky kids and the neighbor kids, as well as DH and I, loved it. I doubled the sauce and kept half back to use at a later date. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into large nugget-sized pieces. I also eliminated the salt; figured the soy sauce and castsup have more than enough. Simmered the sauce on the stove for about 15 minutes then baked in the oven at 450 for 20 minutes. The chicken came out perfect but the sauce was still very runny. We served it over rice. Everyone loved it, but it would be even more awesome sticky. I suggest simmering till sauce reaches a honey-like consistency. Allow at least half an hour for that. Will definitely make often. Thank you!

Perfect Pressure Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
So easy, and good enough for company. Everyone loved it. Our priest (who was over for dinner) even asked for the recipe. I browned the onion as well as the roast. I also added two packets Italian and Ranch mix, since my packets were 0.7 oz., and used water because I didn't have any beef broth on hand. But, I forgot to add extra water, so the gravy turned out salty but still good. I'll use water next time too, since it was very flavorful and I'm afraid the broth would increase the saltiness again. Check your pressure cooker's cook time. I had to cook a 4 lb. roast on high for 60 minutes.

Chicken with Stuffing Breading

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Very easy and delicious. My 6 year old did most of the breading for me. I omitted the curry because we don't like curry. I cut the chicken breast into nugget-sized pieces, made extra breading, and baked at 425 for 20 minutes. I didn't bother to turn it halfway through. The breading came out so crunchy it was like panko flakes and the chicken was highly flavored. We all loved it, even the picky eaters. Next time I may omit the parsley and Italian seasoning, just to make it that much easier and I think it would still be plenty flavorful. Thanks for a great, easy recipe that will definitely go into rotation.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I didn't get to taste it--made cupcakes for a cupcake walk--but my children who did raved about it, and keep asking me to make more. The batter flavor and consistency reminds me of my favorite chocolate sheet cake recipe. I used it with the Chocolate Cookie Buttercream Frosting from Allrecipes--minus the cocoa--and I can vouch that the frosting was delicious! :-)

Chocolate Cookie Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
I wanted a buttercream frosting with no shortening (blech!). I omitted the cocoa since I wanted vanilla, and estimated the milk based on consistency. I doubled the recipe for 24 cupcakes. It came out delicious! This will be my go-to frosting from now on. Easily adaptable to many flavors.

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Wow! The whole family loved this one. I've made it 3 times in the past few weeks. I use the 3/4 c. oil and 1/2 cup applesauce as recommended. I also use 3 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon. And I top it with molasses spice cream cheese frosting. Yum! Thanks so much for sharing. I had a pumpkin bread recipe I liked, but this has taken top place in the rotation.
