Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This wasnmy first attempt at corned beef and cabbage and it was a total success! I had the meat and carrots/potatoes in a bit longer than it called for but it still turned out great. When I got home from work I took the meat out and cooked the cabbage on high for about an hour. The only negative was that the carrots did not end up tasting very good. I will definately use this recipe again!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
Very easy and tasty. The only thing I would change is a little more kneading. My loaf, while it tasted delicious, ended up a little on the ugly side.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This was the hit of my family's holiday breakfast! I added some high quality dark chocolate chunks (Sees) which, of course makes everything a little bit better! I had 3 requests for the recipe!

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I was trying to find a recipe my Aunt used to make when I was a kid and thought this was it. I was disappointed. They looked better than they tasted. My hubby liked em though. The bottom was too crumbly and the overall taste was too sweet for me.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Pretty good basic bran muffin recipe. I added a crumble on top and mixed dried fruit. Next time I will try adding some oats.

Crescent Layer Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
These looked so good. The texture was great but the flavor left much to be desired. Needless to say, this will not be a recipe I will be making again.

Pecan Pie Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
These were soooooo... easy and yummy! I am going to need to experiment with the appearance as they tasted much better than they looked. Maybe placing some candied pecans on top half way through cooking?

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Delish! I paired them with the chocolate fudge buttercream made with hot fudge on this site. I made little tiny chocolate chip cookies to garnish. The first time I made thses I made the cookie dough too small. The second time I made them just over an inch and it was a perfect ratio! I now keep frozen cookie dough balls in my freezer just in case. I cut up small squares of plastic wrap and wrapped each ball then put the wrapped balls in a freezer bag. They keep well for more than a month at least.

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I doubled the broth and carrots (I love carrots in soup). I kept everything else the same. It turned out good but next time I think I will try ground sirloin and season the meat well. Overall, this is a really good basic recipe to build on to suit individual tastes and preferences.

Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Looks great, tastes great... great all around! I did find the SCM caused the chocolate to chunk but it did not affect the end result at all.

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I brought these to my family's Thanksgiving and they were a hit. This is a BIG deal... my brother is famous for his chocolate chip cookies and these went before his! Oh, I added dark chocolate morsels (not semi sweet).

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
I made this for my husband's birthday for a house full of chocolate lovers (a very tough crowd w/ no chocolate in sight). It got rave reviews all around!

Chocolate Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
I opted to make these for my son's school holiday party because I figured they would be easier and less time consuming than baking cookies. But I think I should have stuck to cookies. I, like many others was disappointed to find no round pretzels in store after store (did not have time to order online). I was delighted to finally find round butter waffle ones at last. I started out with a mixed batch of milk and dark. The dark turned out beautifully but the milk seemed to not be soft enough so I put them back in and, like other reviewers, burnt them. I tried another batch of milk by themselves but no matter how long I left them in the end result was ugly (compared to the dark). The end result was a pretty big mess in my kitchen (something I was hoping I would avoid with this seemingly quick and easy recipe) and some pretty and yummy dark chocolate buttons. To do it again I would order the round pretzels online and only use dark chocolate kisses.

Maple Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
My husband wanted "something different" for Christmas dessert this year. He requested a pumpkin cake with maple icing. As odd as this sounds it turned out great. I used the pumpkin cake recipe from this site but substituted maple flavoring for most of the vanilla and used this icing (but I used more of the maple flavor than the recipe called for). It turned out very nice. It is a keeper! Has me thinking about what else it might taste good with? Pancake cupcakes anyone?

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
This recipe was just ok. I always like to try and stick to the original the first time I make somthing (unless reviews are consistently pointing out one mistake). I should have listened to those who decreased the water. The apples were way too soggy for my liking. The topping was not oaty enough and it it was overly sweet. I will keep the recipe though as it it a good jumping off point to alter.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Though I found this recipe to be a bit too sweet, it was a hit at one of our holiday meals this year. Next time I will use more brownie and overcook it a bit and less cool whip. I topped it with chunks of snickers. At a dinner where the hostess apparently asked everyone to bring dessert, this was the number one choice for everyone.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Perfect pancakes! BUT if there are more than 2 of you eating, double or triple the recipe because they go fast and I only got 5 decent sized cakes out of one batch.

Very good and very easy! But, it cannot sit out for very long w/o losing texture, taste, and appearence points.
