Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
Fantastic moist and delicious Muffin! I added more berries (I think at least doubled the amount) and they were fantastic!

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This worked with tweaking- I added a finely chopped onion that I saute with the margerine right off the bat, and then I follow the directions as stated except that I also add red pepper flakes for some spice and I use a lot more brown sugar. I continually get asked for the recipe, and it is SO quick and easy to throw together (and double).

Roasted Veggie Pasta Bake

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This was SO fast and easy! I cheated and used a bag (750g) of mediterannian veggies that were already chopped and ready to go only taking the time to add an onion (as everything else was already in the mix). I also added a few more spices for personal preference, and used less chicken broth (I like the sauce thicker). I also didnt have bread crumbs so I crushed crutons in a ziplock bag and used that instead. The only thing I would change is to possibly add garlic to the roasted veggies. I can totally see this being made at my house often. **UPDATE** I used garlic in the veggies and it was PERFECT!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
Super simple, and AMAZINGLY good! I would note though that if you use regular peanut butter they will be incredibly sweet, so I use the natural peanut butter thats just peanuts, and its fine, anything else would be way to sweet! Someone also suggested shortening in with the chocolate so that it wasnt so crumbly, and about 1/3 to 1/2 a cup was perfect, let sit for about 10 minutes in the fridge, cut them, and then let them harden completely. I highly doubt these will last long!

Orange Pull Aparts

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
Even with orange rind, orange flavoring, and orange juice these were still not quite oragie flavored, I think ill add the glaze, and see what happens. Certainly good for breakfast, and awesome with some ground clove and ginger for a little extra something! Would make again for sure! Also works fine in a circular pan if you dont have a bundt.

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
I would give this 4.5 but not 5, they arent quite as lemony as I would like and I used more lemon juice, and more zest than required. Otherwise AMAZING, and UBER simple!

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
tasted oily and had very little flavor. While the company seemed to like this I certainly did not and would not make this again. The only thing different I did was add ginger to give it more of a kick, and that still didnt help matters. Unfortunately disappointing...

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly, and I dont know what went wrong but this was entirely inedible. The noodles were mushy and the whole thing was a mess. I dont like rating this low, but when I didnt change anything, and I couldnt even eat it I'm not sure what else to rate it at!

Cinnamon-Sugar Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
It was so fast and simple!! I doubled the recipe (using 1/3 butter 1/3 margerine) as my only changes and it was fantastic! For quick and easy clean up, I lined my roasting pan with tin foil before putting the popcorn or mix into it. This is one that I will be making again for sure!

Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
These were so good I ate some for breakfast the next day! I coated the chops with flour, then egg, and used stove top stuffing crushed as the bread stuffing mix. I will certainly be making this one again, for its simplicity, and its yummyness!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Since I saved the recipe a little over a week ago I have made this 3 times, with rave reviews every time. I will never look for another cinnimon bun recipie again, because this one is simply the best!

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I followed the directions except just made it for one cup full. It was EXCELLENT, and while not exactly the same as a Starbucks, it will certainly help my wallet!

Miracle Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I love lasagna, but hate the length of time it takes to prepare. This recipe totally fixes that! I enjoyed the flavor, and when paired with a salad, and garlic bread this becomes a really good meal. I found I didn't have to do anything to my noodles in order to get them to behave and not be crispy, they absorbed the extra juice while cooking so it wasnt sloppy to serve. Ive also made this at least 5 times since I saved it a few months ago, so its gotta be good!!!

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Amazing and simple, although I was skeptical when I tried. Really good paired with rice to soak up the excess sauce. Very nice to have in your box for something that tastes SO good, but can be done on the fly!

Brownie Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
While the basic idea of the bread was good I made some of my own changes that I think added to the overall texture and taste. 1/4C of Cocoa and water, 2 1/2tsp Yeast, 1/2C sugar, 2/3C warm water, closer to 4 cups of flour, 1tbsp vanilla, one lunchable size chocolate pudding, 1tsp salt, 2tbsp of oil, and 1 egg. I placed in my bread machine according to directions and then put it on the DOUGH cycle. When completed I took the dough out, punched it down on a floured countertop (it was quite sticky), split it in half (makes 2 smaller loaves or one big loaf), placed in greased bread pans in a warm oven for 30 minutes. Warm oven up to 350 and cook for 25 minutes. I made this this morning and my mom and I have already eaten half a loaf because it is SO good. While it certainly does not taste like brownies, it was moist, filling, and has a delicious chocolaty after taste! It also makes the house smell amazing... I will certainly make this bread again with the changes as it will be AMAZING with a peanutbutter banana sandwich!

Quick Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
The best coffee cake I have ever eaten, so moist and tasty! The company we went to see asked if they could keep the leftovers! I did read other comments and doubled the sugar (total 12 tbsp) and I added a bit more shortening. As well I melted the butter and mixed it with the flour, sugar and cinnamon before pouring it on top. Used a knife to skore the topping into the cake. Will absolutely make this again with no hesitation.

Blueberry Oat Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
This tasted really good, and was even liked by the picky kids in my Sunday school class (and they are PICKY!) I did add cinnimon to the crust/topping mixture, and I added about a cup more berries to the mixture. I used the pan size given, and even with the extra cup of berries I would have liked more topping, so I would go with doubling the recipe. Even with the changes, this recipe is totally a keeper, and I can't wait to make it again!

Cinnamon Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
This cake is absolutely AMAZIZNG! I made it as cupcakes once, and then as a 2 layer cake the second time, and people thought it was a store bought cake. The only thing I changed was the buttermilk in the cake and the whipping cream and walnuts in the icing. I used regular milk, and no nuts and the cake still turned out simply stunning! Definately one I suggest to anyone in a time crunch, OR if you're looking for something that will blow the socks off your taste buds.
