Caramels

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
the flavor was fantastic! i think i read too many reviews, so i couldn't really decide how to handle the cook time. after 45 minutes, i stopped cooking even tho the temp had only reached 225. some people said that was enough and i was afraid to turn the heat up on my electric stove for fear of burning it. in my candy inexperience, i figured it would harden as it cooled. it didn't. so my caramel apples weren't very successful HOWEVER, it's the perfect consistency for ice cream. yum! just heat for a few secs in the microwave. will definitely try again to make the candies.

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
i've had a lot of trouble finding a recipe that works for me, whether due to my own ineptitude or not. however, this recipe was great and pretty easy. i did follow other's advice and subsituted low fat cream cheese for the cream. wasn't sure how much to use, so i added about half a block. turned out great! i meant to try the nutmeg, but forgot. it was delish anyway! also wound up cooking it for about another 10 minutes than called for. thanks for a great recipe! btw, is it just me or is squeezing the water out of spinach a pain in the pratt?

Tomatillo Guacamole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
yummy. this was delicious. great call on both the cilantro and limiting the red onion. i only put half the onion in there and still woke up w/heinous breath. yikes! plus, i couldn't find roma tomatoes, so i just used plum. one thing i laid off of was the red pepper b/c my husband doesn't like spicy as much as i do, but i did put way more than 3 drops of tobassco in there. i also thought this would be a great thing for the food processor, but since no one else tried it, i did it the old fashioned way. chunky is nice, but i think i may try beating it to a pulp next time. tho my husband says he liked it chunky.

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
this was so good! i, too, used butter b/c i didn't have any margarine. and i also decided to use cheese puffs (mike sell's cheese puffcorn to be exact) instead of popcorn. (this is b/c my husband and i had the most delicious mix of popcorn at garrett's in chicago - half cheese and half caramel.) it didn't look too appealing but it tasted heavenly. everyone was trepidatious at first, but quickly became addicted. will definitely make again. my only regret was not adding nuts, but it was still tasty.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
i misplaced the recipe i usually use (i forget i have banans quite often), so decided to try this one b/c it looked easy (a requirement for me). it was great and i didn't change a thing. i made 4 mini loaves and cooked them for about 35-40 minutes. i may add vanilla next time, but it really didn't even need it, imho. thanks for a great recipe!

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
this mix came along just in the nick of time. i usually buy at it sam's, but they stopped carrying it. i can't get over how great this is, and i find it much more flavorful than the canned stuff. i mixed it up in my food processor and i couldn't be happier with the results. thanks for a great recipe and a wondeful gift idea.

Cheese Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
This was a great, super easy recipe. I was making mummy dogs for a Halloween party and needed a nice cheese sauce I could dye green and spread under the dog for a little oozing action. The hint of mustard was the perfect complement to my dogs and would also be tasty with pretzels. Seriously, I couldn't believe how quickly it came together and how awesome the consistency was for my purposes.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
Yummy! I made it pretty much as is, but used a full cup of the Frank's. It had a little kick, but not too much for the non-spicy lovers. Used fat free cream cheese, which I was afraid wouldn't melt up good, but it worked fine. Wish I had thought to use fat free ranch, but after all the junk we ate at the Super Bowl party, I don't think it probably mattered. :) Used with tortilla chips. Awesome. Thanks!

Lemon-Sesame Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
Very tasty. I followed Spyce's advice for cutting a few calories and it was delicious. I overcooked the asparagus, but still good.

Katrina's Banana Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
This cake was delicious. Instead of using a tube pan (or bundt pan, for us laypeople), I used two 9" rounds and baked for about 25 minutes. Once they cooled, I iced them with a cream cheese icing I found on another site. Very moist. Would make again instead of banana bread next time I have overripe bananas on hand.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
i thought this was fantastic. unfortunately, it was too mas for my DH and 18 month old. not sure if using less would have made a difference, but i thought it was perfect.

Award Winning Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
my husband has made this several times; this was my first foray and it was delish. the only thing i didn't have was cilantro, but it was still good. i also didn't have any chili seasoning packets, so i (mostly) used the chili seasoning mix II from this site. mmmmm-good.

Asparagus with Sliced Almonds and Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
yummy! i usually cook the out of my asparagus, but i followed this recipe exactly, so it was nice and crisp for a change. and i didn't mind my pan getting all gooped up - it was worth it for the wonderful melding of flavors. will make this again.

Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
carrots are like water to me. i know they're good for me, but they just don't taste that great plain. this recipe jazzed them up and made them delicious. i made as is, tho i drizzled a little honey over them (as another reviewer suggested) right after adding the OJ and then added the brown sugar and butter right after that. my goal is to dirty as few dishes, pots, bowls, etc, as possible, so i didn't go to the trouble of thickening it up as others suggested, but i think they tasted great just the same.

Spaghetti with White Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
this was surprisingly fantastic. i say this because the inside of a can of clams isn't that appealing. when i told my husband what i was making he said, 'i don't think i like that.' well, he gobbled it right up, along with my 21-month-old. i couldn't believe it. i only used 1/2 a pound of spaghetti, so i cut the oil down to 1/8 cup, 2 TBSP butter, 4 cloves of garlic, 1 15 oz can of chopped clams, and about half the juice, along w/half of the spices. awesome. next time, i'll include some bread to sop up all the juicy goodness.

Chunky Banana Nut Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
there's no denying this ice cream is delicious as is. i just enjoyed another bowl last night with a little chocolate syrup. it was the perfect recipe for me because i had a bunch of bananas that were getting very ripe and i just couldn't bear making (and eating) another loaf of banana bread. the only thing i really did differently was use about 3 cups of heavy cream and 1 cup of half and half because i'm cheap and wanted to make another ice cream from this site, blueberry cheesecake (fabulous!) and didn't want to buy two quarts of expensive heavy cream. while this recipe isn't nearly as rich as the blueberry one, it's still fantastic. nuts, chocolate, chips, bananas...what's not to love?

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
for whatever reason, i've never been able to make iced tea that was drinkable, until now. not sure if it's because i was using one family sized tea bag for every 2 called for in previous recipes (thanks, heather, for straightening me out), or because i wasn't yet privy to the baking soda trick. but i'm cured now. this turned out perfect and was enjoyed by some pretty serious sweet tea enthusiasts.

Storm of the Century Hurricane

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
made this for a small mardi gras soiree following dawn's recipe (2/27/06) for a punch bowl's worth. it was tasty but definitely potent and one of those drinks that goes down waaaay too easy. everyone loved it but were thankfully responsible (except for me - but i wasn't going anywhere). would definitely make again, tho possibly add more OJ and a little less booze just so people could enjoy more of it.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
this was really good and had a nice kick to it. made it for a small mardi gras soiree and everyone loved it. i cooked it on high for 4 hours, added 2 cups of uncooked rice and switched it over to low. next time, i'll add an extra cup of broth since some of the rice was a little crunchy. super delicious and very easy to make. thanks for a great recipe!
