Original Irish Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2002
I made 2 batches of this for my Christmas dinner this year and it was great. My mother will never buy Bailey's again. She made me give her this recipe. She was so excited.

Spicy Pizza Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2001
This is great. My oldest child loved it, saying it was better than pizza. I put in an extra cup of water and it still came out pefect. Had it with garlic bread sticks and a salad. Will be making this from now on. I don't even like peppers (I pick them off my pizza) but I sure ate them in this. I used someone elses' idea and used 3 different colored peppers to give it different colors. :)

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This is the 1st time I ever attempted meatballs and I really loved these. The sauce was really good. Tripled the recipe and took them to a baby shower. I had very little left over and had some requests for the recipe. The funny thing is, the entire time I was adding the sauce ingredients, I kept wrinkling my nose and thinking "this can't be good". I mean, cranberry sauce, chili sauce & lemon juice. Wow. But it was very good. I actually made these the day before I needed them. I baked the meatballs on a broiler pan so the grease would drip down and not pool around the meatballs. I then just placed them in a container, poured the sauce over them, put a lid on them and threw them in the fridge. The next morning at 8am, I dumped it all in the slow cooker to heat before the 1:00 baby shower. Perfect. The only change I made was adding a bit more minced onions and the bread crumbs were Italian flavored. That little bit of flavor didn't overwhelm the sauce at all.

Garlic Teriyaki Edamame

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
For those trying to eat the pod/shell, you don't. You pop them open and eat the soy beans out of them. When I first went to a Tempanyaki restaurant I didn't know what these were or how to eat them. I had a feeling we didn't eat the whole pod so I asked my sister and she showed me how to eat them lol. Yes it's easier to buy the beans already shelled but what fun is that?

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
I rated this a 4 because of the changes I made to how I cooked the wings first. I made the sauce exactly as was stated and it was really good (not the best, but really good and definitely worth making again). For the wings, we baked them first, then I brushed some of the sauce on them and broiled them. Then I flipped them over and did the same for the other side. After broiling, we then put them in the slow cooker with the rest of the sauce. Fantastic. The meat was super tender but since they were baked & broiled first, the meat pretty much stayed on the bone enough to get them to the plate. Precooking them got rid of the excess fat and kept the sauce from getting watery.

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2001
Everyone just loves these things. In fact, I have family giving me tins to fill for them, before I even start making them. However, my recipe calls for 1/3 bar of parafin wax. It makes the chocolate smoother and keeps it from clumping. You can't taste the parafin. They look sooo pretty. I freeze my "balls" before dipping. It hardens the choc on them faster and keeps the balls from falling off the toothpicks. I learned how to make these as a child and have been making them every year since.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
This was actually very good. I didn't use all of the 2nd biscuits, mainly because I have a smaller crock pot.

Watergate Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
I accidently made this not knowing it had a name. I made the regular fruit salad with cool whip (fruit cocktail, mandarin oranges, bananas, etc) and had a box of pistachio pudding that I decided to throw in & try it. I only used 1/2 of a small box & it gave it the perfect flavor (not too strong). It went great with all the fruit too. This is a great recipe that you can change up & add anything you want (including nuts, marshmallows, etc).

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2001
This was real good and very easy to make. Kids can make this one. However, I like the Spicy Pizza Soup the best. I will be making this from time to time. Thanks.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
Followed everything in the recipe but added some vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and 1/4 c dark choc chips and 1/4 c chopped walnuts and I made sure not to over stir. Made 2 mini loafs and cooked less time. Came out perfectly and moist.

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Fantastic. Will be making this regularly. I followed all of the directions except for 2 things (left the Thyme out-not a fan and we didn't have Worcestershire sauce so used Teriyaki). Everyone bragged about it.

Chocopeanutbanana Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
This recipe is awesome but we don't use choc syrup we used choc pwdr. After the first few times, we decided to change things up a bit. We now use 1 banana, 1/8 to 1/4 c creamy pb, 2 tbsp honey, 1 c of milk (coconut milk was awesome, next we'll try Almond milk with is healthier), 1 scoop of EAS choc fudge protein pwdr, 1 tbsp flax seed pwdr and some ice. Made it even more awesome. When I put some of mine in the freezer and accidently froze a bit of it, it kind of reminded me of a Wendy's shake, only healthy!

Banana Banana Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
When looking for a strawberry banana smoothie, first thing I look for is the real fruit. I was shocked that the only strawberry in here is yogurt. I also never put extract in my smoothies so that can be left out. Using a banana is more than enough to give it a strong banana taste. It also doesn't need any sugar added. When blending smoothies with just fruit, it makes the fruit sugar more absorbable which leads to blood sugar spikes. (they advise adding a vegetable to slow that process down & avoid that). Adding some peanut butter also adds some protein. I also add protein powder and flaxseed powder to add protein & nutrients.

Raw Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Even though I made some changes to the type of veggies used, I feel I can give this a 5 star regardless. The dressing was made as is and you can really use any type of veggies to this and it's great. I don't like bacon in anything except BLT's or by itself so I omitted the bacon. I used reg unsalted peanuts instead of spanish nuts (don't like them) and I left out the celery and added 1 red bell pepper and a whole head of broccoli & cauliflower. Everything else was the same. Everyone loved it at our family Christmas dinner and my husband is a veggie nut so I knew he would love it. The cranberries & nuts give this an awesome wow effect.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This icing was fantastic tasting and it had no after taste like using shortening can leave. It might not be the best as far as having that 100% perfect wedding icing look but it gets the job done. It's great for piping swirls, grass/hair, etc but it looked just ok on the practice roses. Maybe others can have better luck making really good roses with this but we didn't. Thankfully, we didn't need roses. We used this to pipe a swirly cone on the cupcakes and then topped the cupcakes with a fondant flower. We also used this recipe as a crumb icing for the fondant covered belly cake my sister made. The difference was, for the crumb icing, the recipe was made exactly as called for. For piping, I made 2 batches of this recipe w/o any milk at all. For one, I left white. For the other, I added 1/4 packet of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Strawberry Shortcake flavor and a little red coloring to make it a little more pink. I then put pink on one side of the piping bag and white on the other and swirled the two-tones icing onto the cupcakes. It would have been a lot easier had I used two separate bags & stuck them inside one bag than trying to get the 2 colors to go down one bag evenly. I had icing all over me but it got the job done. The two tone color was very pretty.

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
What a surprise this ended up being. I made it for my husband who loves peppers, onions & polish sausage. I used polish sausage instead of sweet italian sausage and I double all ingredients except the broth. I used 12 cups of broth instead of 16. I don't like peppers but the broth tastes so good that I had to try it and I have to say that I loved it. The more I ate the addicting it became. This is deffinately a keeper. Only complaint my husband gave it I need to add more polish sausage. Another tip...would also be good with chicken or both chicken & sausage. Thanks for the recipe.

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2001
I just love these. Coudn't believe it when I first tried it. My son didn't like the sour cream taste, but that was ok, more for me and my husband. I could barely taste the sour cream myself.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2001
This was good but I think I'd like a different sauce and broil it instead of grill it and make it more like Red Lobster. This was very easy to make and I just through the shrimp on the George Foreman Grill. Took a minute to cook.
