Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2004
This is a good basic recipe but I think it needs a little revamp. Here is the revamping I did.... I used 1 cup of Half and Half instead of 2 cups of milk (too soggy with that much milk) I used 6 eggs instead of 4 for a richer egg texture. I added 3 tbsns green onions to the milk/egg mixture. I used 6 slices of THICK texas toast and covered the bottom of the pan with it. I then put the cooked sausage over that. (Bob Evans Spicy Hot Sausage from Kroger) I then put 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese over that. Then I pour the egg/half and half/green onion mixture over that. I bake after letting it sit in the fridge for 8-12 hours at 350 degree for 25 minutes. I guess I should post a new recipe!!

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Can you believe this recipe only has 3 ingredients?!?! It is AWESOME. My husband said they were the best cookies I ever made. I used Cherry Chip Cake Mix and added 1 1/2 Cups of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips. Wow. Soooooo Good! I recommend putting them in an airtight container. If you do this, they'll stay soft for 3+ days. I am going to try other combos like, Fun Chip Cake Mix with White Chocolate Chips or Chocolate Cake Mix with White Chocolate Chips and Macadamia Nuts or Banana Cake with Butterscotch Chips or White Cake Mix with Buttercream Frosting. Have fun with this recipe, it ROCKS!!!

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
I chose this recipe over the other 5 star veg pizza recipe because of the dill in the spread. As other users have noted, this makes the pizza! Don't fail to add that. I love mayo in these types of recipes so I did 8oz. cream cheese, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup mayo. After mixing the spread, I chilled it for a bit. I let my dough cook 11 min exactly and it was perfect. I let it cool for 15 min away from the stove. Then I began spreading the cream cheese mix on top. It was a bit hard to spread but there was no sogginess. My veggies included grated carrot, orange bell pepper, green onions, broccoli, and campari tomatoes. I pressed them into the spread. I then chilled the pizza for an hour before serving. EVERYONE LOVED IT. EVERYONE! If you do what I suggest above, this pizza will be good for more than 24 hours without becoming soggy. I just enjoyed leftovers and thought they even tasted better than the first day.

Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2002
How could this not be good??!? This was a DUTCH favorite (As my church friends and family called it) in my hometown, Bellflower, CA. Add a half cup peanut butter to chocolate mix for more peanut taste. Buy mocha ice cream for mud pie taste!

Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
We just made this along with 4 other flavors of homemade ice cream and this was our favorite! I found some instant coffee at the store that came in single serve packets and it was hazelnut flavored! I think that added to the greatness of this wonderful recipe! It took 4 single serve packs to make 2 tbsn. We mixed thick caramel topping into the ice cream just before putting into the freezer. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Cranberry BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Just made this for 15 of my family members! They loved it, including 4 kids! Please, follow the directions exactly as written, using whole cranberry sauce and using the veggies. I took the advice of another user and got a spicy BBQ sauce to balance out the sweetness of the cranberry sauce. I also sauteed 4 cloves of garlic with the onion and celery. 5 star, all the way.

Hello Dollies I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2001
Seven Layer Bars are the BEST! Bring these to a party and they will be gove in a heart beat! I like to make a larger batch in a 9x13 pan so I upscale the ingredients a little. (Oh, using the whole bag of choco chips makes them a little more decadent!)

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
I am so glad I came upon this recipe! I am a WW member and have been searching for a delicious 1 point cookie! I took this recipe and turned it into a 1pointer...Here are the changes I made to make them 1 point each: 1/2 cup whole wheat flour + 1/2 cup AP flour, 1/3 cup sugar & 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup butter + 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/8 cup mini chocolate chips. My kids loved them, what else is there to say? :)

Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2003
Everyone loved this! You can make this really healthy by using egg whites and apple sauce and believe me, no one will know! The glaze is the special secret to this one. Don't forget your coffee and amaretto and creamer along side a piece of this.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Oh how I love this bread! The texture is superb!!! I put all the ingredients into my bread machine and selected dough cycle. I took out the dough, shaped it into a loaf and cooked in my oven @ 350 for 20 min. I put cornmeal beneath the loaf of dough. I let it rise for 30 minutes prior to baking. After it rose, I cut 3 large diagonal slices on the top, spread butter over the entire top and then sprinkled tons of rolled oats on top of the butter. WOW, does it look amazing when it's done!!! Looks like a $6 loaf of bread. THANKS!

Very Fruity Rum Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2004
JEFF: You da man! This stuff is incredible and I wish I could hug you for help making my party such a success. I had everyone telling me that this tasted like the Orange Dream Machine at Jamba Juice. It's so good, you don't know there is alcohol in it. UMMMMMMMMM! Tips for other recipe users: Try different kinds of rum for alterations in flavor. I.e. pineapple rum, mango rum, spiced rum, dark rum, coconut rum, etc. Help your guests achieve a relaxed buzz while satisfying thier taste buds: MAKE THIS PUNCH!

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
These are a great tasting muffin for having so much fiber! I was looking for a recipe on this site that would be very low in WW points. I made some modifications to make each one 2 points. I substituted 1/3 cup applesauce for the oil. I added only 1/2 cup sugar, which was plenty sweet. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and put in a full tsp vanilla for extra flavor. And, just so my kids would eat them, I put in 3 tbsn of mini choco chips! I will make these a lot :)

Sausage and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
This was awesome! I pulled some turkey out of the bird in the oven before it was done and used that instead of sausage! I also used some turkey juices in place of chix broth. Oh my heck, yummy!

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Honestly, this is the best ice cream I have ever had. EVER. The creamy/icy ratio is perfect! The first batch we made, we did just chocolate chip and then the 2nd, we did mint choco chip. Both were incredible. we are using this recipe for all ice cream bases now. As for the chocolate pieces, I highly recommend shaving chocolate pieces off a bar of Ghiradelli Bittersweet Chocolate from the baking section in the grocery store. Use your potato peeler. This provides perfect texture and the bitterness of the chocolate counters the sweetness of the ice cream perfectly. YUM!

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2004
This is a GREAT recipe! No one is exaggerating on these reviews and that is wonderful. I made it for my husbands 30th and had out 3 kinds of chips, Blue Corn Tortilla, Fritos Scoops and Homemade Tortilla from a local Mexican Restaurant. (I recommend getting the chips for a mexican restaurant as they are really fresh, not too salty and fairly inexpensive)Everyone will rave and wonder what the secret is! I took everyone's advice and made the following changes: omit blackeyed peas, added two diced fresh roma tomatoes only 1/2 cup italian dressing juice of one lime, 3 cloves minced fresh garlic Added 1/3 cup fresh cilantro right before serving This MUST be marinated overnight or longer. This is the best and you must try it soon!!!

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2003
Once you make these, you will make them over and over again...no matter the season. The thicker you cut them out, the better. I find if you cut them thinner than called for, they get a little to crispy. People have asked if I stole the recipe from a store or bakery!

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
This is probably the most unique and amazing recipe I have tried on this site!!! My niece is gluten intolerant and I am always looking for recipes to try for her! She and no one else in my family could determine the secret ingredient. THIS TASTES AMAZING! The density is wonderful, has a cheesecake appeal. I am going to use the garbanzos as a base and maybe add white choco chips or butterscotch chips for a different kind of cake. To take this recipe over the top, I added the Satiny Chocolate Glaze (from this site) over the top and put chocolate dipped strawberries all around. YEAH!

Sweet Baby Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
I gave this 5 stars for incredible taste! It's more like a treat. You can get incredible taste with just 1/4 the butter and sugar...I only used 2 tbsn butter, 1/2 tbsn honey and 2 tbsn brown sugar and still, it tastes amazing. Remember that carrots are naturally sweet once cooked. I also added 1/2 tsp cinnamon :)

Tomato Enchilada Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2004
This is a great recipe. I recommend making it once as the recipe says to do and then tasting it and making notes for what you want to add the next time you make it. I like using crushed tomatoes instead of the diced canned & the canned tomato sauce. It has a fresher taste. I use Chipotle salsa for the red sauce and it is unbelievable. I always make double the red sauce since the amount it calls for barely covers all the rolled up tortillas. One more red sauce recommendation: make the sauce the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight so the flavors can meld together. Makes a huge difference!

Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2003
This recipe was good but I don't think that the bread crumbs do it any justice. Next time I might just put the chicken in the sauce without the breadcrubms. The sauce is to die for and is great with french fries or a baked potato topping
