Easy Pumpkin Pie Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2014
Oh my goodness!! I would give this more stars if that were possible! Rose Marie I want to thank you for submitting this recipe for the rest of us to enjoy! This is definitely a keeper & one I will be baking several times throughout the year. I prepared this recipe substituting Splenda for the sugar (hubby is a diabetic) and used a butter recipe cake mix (didn't have a yellow cake mix in the pantry) but all other ingredients were as the recipe called for. I used the toothpick method to test for doneness, and yes it took longer than the 60 minutes the recipe states to bake, but seriously people. I baked mine an additional 6 minutes and it tastes wonderful! Every baked recipe needs to be adapted for your particular oven right? Long story short, this is an exceptional recipe! Next time I bake it I will use a yellow cake mix and still be just as pleased with the outcome! My family happens to love pumpkin pie but some do not care for crust so this is a win win in my book! Thank you!!!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
WOW!! I made these for Christmas morning and they were a HUGE hit! I made 2 batches and since my husband is a diabetic I used Splenda in one batch and Lite brown sugar for the cinnamon mixture, and the other batch was as the recipe is written. Both batches came out tasting wonderfully delicious! I surprised my husband with them and he was more than excited to try them! The cinnamon rolls turned out so light and do in fact taste like the ones you can purchase in the mall as one of the other reviewers stated, except I think these are better! They are simple to male and the aroma from the oven is pure heaven. Do make sure you have something in the oven to catch the oozey goodness. Not much, but some! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will definitely be baking them again soon!

Healthier Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
This is a delicious recipe! This recipe has all the elements required for a 5 star rating in my book ... Easy to make, Great taste, Crowd Pleasing Goodness! I make a steak potato recipe that is quite similar to this minus the herb seasonings but I must say THIS RECIPE here is sooo much tastier! Thank you for sharing it with us here! I made these for a potluck dish and they were a HUGE hit! I used russet potatoes and dried spices instead of fresh because that is what I had on hand. I also added a touch of salt & crushed pepper before I baked them, simply because other viewers said they could use a little salt. I will definitely make these again & again! My husband is not a fan of rosemary, on ANYTHING, and HE LOVED THESE!!!

Finger Lickin' Onion Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
This is delicious!!! This recipe makes enough for a small crowd (guessing between 3 -3 1/2 cups) and is so much better than buying onion dip in the store. I did find I needed to add a bit more spices to mine because it seemed just a bit bland. I have added it to my recipe box and will definitely make again. I did cut back on the oil and used only 2 T olive oil which was plenty. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

Broccoli Cranberry Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
So delicious and a refreshingly healthy. I prepared this recipe for a party and got rave reviews from all in attendance. The only change I made to the recipe as written was I used cashews in place of the sunflower seeds. I love the flavor of the dressing in this recipe and I will definitely be making this again and again! Thank you for a wonderfully healthy salad recipe!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake V

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Oh My Goodness Wonderful!!! I used a Duncan Hines butter recipe box cake mix when I made your recipe. This Pineapple Upside Down Cake recipe was absolutely AMAZING!!! So light and moist, not overly sweet as pineapple upside down cakes tend to be (in my opinion. This cake just melts in your mouth. I LOVE the idea of baking 2 cakes to layer them. Having the topping of the 2nd layer between the 2 cakes just adds that element of surprise to the overall cake. Thank you so much for this lovely recipe that has now become my favorite and one I will definitely make again and again! I made the recipe exactly as you posted it & it is perfect!!!

Grilled Tri-Tip with Oregon Herb Rub

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
I am giving your recipe a 4-star rating only because my family loved it! I, on the other hand, was not a fan of the flavor which makes me reluctant to give a personal review, but I will give you my honest opinion since I was the one cooking the Tri-Tip. :) This was my first time cooking a Tri- Tip so I liked the idea of your rub recipe for easy insurance of tenderness & flavorful meat. However, personally, I thought the end result was too salty and the rosemary I think gave it the flavor I was not fond of. I love rosemary on my chicken recipes, but I guess not on my beef meats. Sorry to make that sound like a negative for your recipe so I hope others do not take it that way. My husband RAVED about the Tri-Tip so your rub was a big hit with him!! I will use your rub recipe in the future and maybe try it on my chicken recipe :) Thanks so much.

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
MY OH MY! ALL KINDS OF YUMMY GOODNESS IN THIS MINI CHEESECAKE RECIPE! So simple and tasty. I did follow the advice of one other reviewer who said she added a sour cream top to the cheesecakes for that added "over the top cheesecake flavor" we all crave and she was spot on! So glad I went that extra step because these are FABULOUS!! I love that they are portioned in the mini versions, that makes it so easy! Do try this recipe, you will not be disappointed! Thank you!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
This recipe was EXACTLY what I was looking for in a muffin recipe! It is easy, very moist & tasty and it is one that compliments when you change the fruit content. I LOVE THAT!!! I listened to some of the other reviewers and used a different crumb topping (so it wouldn't sink into the muffins)& I am very happy I did. It was just the right amount of sweetness on top to compliment & not overpower the muffin itself. The muffin is PERFECTLY sweetened as is. I used fresh raspberries instead of the blueberries and WOW, WOW, WOW! YUMMY! I also made some with finely diced apples and they are equally as delicious! Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe!!!

Ruth's Roquefort Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
After reading some of the other reviews, I planned ahead for adjustments. However, I did make this cheese ball as written so I could judge for myself. I agree it is a bit bland as written so my ingredients measured as follows: 8 oz cream cheese, 4 1/2 oz bleu cheese crumbles,2 heaping Tablespoons EACH of celery & sweet Valencia onion finely chopped, 5 drops Tabasco pepper sauce, 1/4 teaspoon ground red cayenne pepper, 1/4 teaspoon each of onion powder & garlic powder. Blended all ingredients till smooth and creamy, then placed in the refrigerator to chill for 6 hrs. Shaped it into a ball and covered again! Covered the cheese ball with diced pecans and ate with crackers. THIS RECIPE IS EXCELLENT & the added Bleu cheese really is a huge hit for the Bleu cheese lovers! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. Anyone making this for the first time really should make as written & then decide for themselves to tweak or not to tweak to their palate. :) Definitely will make again ... soon!!!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
WOW!I would never think to make s cheese ball as a dessert but this is "the Bomb"!!! So very easy to make. I had no problems with the recipe. The cheese ball is nice and firm after chilling in the fridge. I spread mine on graham crackers & chocolate bears & it is excellent on sliced apples! My husband was reluctant to try this & his first bite he said "WOW, you put it in your mouth and it takes a second or two to really taste the flavors and then it is like an explosion of goodness!" Definitely try this recipe & don't change a thing! It is perfect as written! Thank you Kim for sharing such a delightful recipe. I will definitely make again & again. :)

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
I had a butter yellow cake mix so I used that for this recipe. These pumpkin muffins are YUMMY, MOIST, everything I was looking for this morning! When I baked them I baked half with brown sugar sprinkled on top (as another rater suggested) which added just a bit of a crunch on top. Either way you bake these delcious EASY PUMPKIN MUFFINS; they are YUMMY! Try them, you will not be disappointed!!! This recipe is definitely a keeper!!! Thank you Cindy Costa for sharing : )

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
I am always looking for something new & different to treat my diabetic hubby. I used Splenda in place of the sugar and omitted 1/3 c oil, which I normally do when I make any carrot cake/muffin recipe, and the result is always excellent! Each muffin is loaded with raisins, nuts, coconut & the wonderful flavor of carrot mix! Very moist & the flavor is spot on lovely!!! Thank you for sharing your recipe. This is definitely a KEEPER! There are a few comments by some of the other bakers about the prep time taking a bit longer but it is understandable when you are grating your carrots & apple by hand. Invest in a processor and you are in business! I have a small one that is about 25 yrs old now (OH MY!!!) called a "Little Emmy" & it works great! It comes in very handy at Comes in handy for lots of things. : )

Parmesan Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
I had fresh broccoli & cauliflower so I pre-cooked the veggies about half the time I normally would. I drained it and then used it in place of the frozen veggies this recipe called for. I have a large family to feed so I used one can cream of mushroom & one can cream of chicken (didn't have 2 cream of mushroom) and also needed 1 cup parmesan cheese. I cooked the casserole as directed & topped it with cracker crumbs as noted by one other review. This recipe was delightful and a very nice change to an otherwise plain veggie night! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us. I will be making it again this week for a potluck dinner party! : )

Surprise Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
This is heavenly, light in cake texture and nice banana flavor! Very easy, quick prep time too. After reading the other reviews I added 1/4 c banana and a slight drbble of vanilla. I also ran short of flour so added 1/4 c. of old fachioned oatmeal. I mixed the ingredients as directed in the original recipe making sure I mixed thoroughly so the cake would have a nice fluffy cakelike texture. I will definitely make this again. YUM-YUM-YUMMY!!!
