Beer Cheese Pretzel Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This is identical to a dip I've been making for years except I never add seasoning salt or cayenne pepper. I do however add chopped green onions which goes great in this dip. You must let this chill AT LEAST 8 hours for it to taste best. The longer it sits, the better it will taste. And I think light beer is best to use, as a darker beer will be too over powering.

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Very good. I dipped chicken in a beaten egg instead of the butter because I'm counting calories and they were still delicious. Since I used italian breadcrumbs, I think the extra dried spices were a little overkill. Next time I'd omit them. The thyme was really strong. But overall this was a very delicious and healthy meal that I'd make again.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
I was disappointed with this recipe. The only thing I didn't follow was substituted lemon juice for lime because that's all I had. I marinated for 3 1/2 hours and although the chicken was very juicy and moist after grilling, it was flavorless. This was barely enough marinade to cover 2 large boneless chicken breasts, so you might want to double it if you are making 4. I would suggest marinading at least 8 hours if you want to taste any of the marinade, if you just have to try this recipe.

Pumpkin Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
These were very good. I made them for Thanksgiving since my family are all chocolate lovers. I doubled the recipe and it made a ton. Makes a very dense brownie. Instead of the individual spices it calls for, I just added pumpkin pie spice and it was wonderful.

Di's Delicious Deluxe Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Sorry Di, but I hated the addition of the celery and onion. I wanted to make sure they were chopped finely, so I put them in my mini processor and it was still too crunchy. I followed the recipe exactly and they were much too tasteless.

Creamy Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Awesome! I put in my Little Dipper crock pot and served with a sliced french baguette instead of broiling it, since I was taking it to a party. Everyone loved it and I think heating it in the crock pot makes it even better because the flavors have time to mix during the warming process. Used shredded Italian blend cheese. Yum! Can't wait to make it again.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Not the greatest cookie in the world like I was expecting based on the reviews! Mine turned out looking nothing like the main pic. Did not flatten at all as they baked. If I was to make these again (not sure I would though), I'd flatten then on the cookie sheet before baking. They were good, just not these life changing cookies I was expecting based on the comments.

Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
I found this soup to be rather bland. I didn't use celery because I didn't have any on hand, but I'm not sure that would have changed the flavor all that much. I also added 2 links of spicy turkey italian sausage, which I removed from the casings and browned with the onions and garlic. I thought would have added a lot of extra flavor, but I guess I was wrong. The soup was edible, but not this spectacular soup I was expecting based on the reviews.

Michelle's Blonde Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This chili was pretty darn good! The only changes I made were to sub 1 can of the green chilies for 1 can of diced jalapeƱos, add fresh minced garlic in addition to the garlic powder and I only used 3 cans of the beans instead of 5. If you add the beans right into the chili without rinsing and with their canned juices, there is no reason to add anything to thicken the chili up. The starchy juice does that for you automatically without compromising taste (I know we're always told to rinse canned beans, but trust me!). I also just used chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken I got at the market, which I shredded. Was wonderful and easy this way. I topped with the monterey jack cheese as suggested, sour cream and fresh cilantro and served with cheddar garlic biscuits. If I make this again, I don't think I'll add the crushed red pepper if I add the can of jalapeƱos. Was very spicy with both, almost too spicy. But overall a great recipe which I'll add to my recipe box!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Very good recipe for homemade pancakes. Made exactly as directed and wouldn't suggest any substitutions or additions. Can't wait to make them again and add in fresh blueberries or chocolate chips.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I can't say this recipe was bad, but I just didn't find it to taste any different than the regular french toast I've always made with just eggs, milk and cinnamon. So save yourself the extra calories and ingredients and just make it with those 3 things.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I really wanted to love this recipe based on the reviews, but I just don't :( Followed the recipe exactly. You need the full 6 tablespoon of mayo if you properly drain your tuna. Not too moist at all. I think one full tsp of dill is too much. That's all I can taste. It's defiantly edible, just not the best tuna salad I've ever had. I think the reason for such high ratings is because just about everyone tweaks the recipe for their own taste. How can you properly rate something when you're not following the original recipe? I think the flavors might mix a little after it sits in the fridge a bit and it will taste better. But based on my first taste I can only give it 2 stars.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
Best spinach and artichoke dip I've ever had, and that includes those I've had in restaurants! I took some others suggestions and substituted sour cream (actually low-fat) for the mayo and it still tasted wonderful and I'm sure saved many calories from the dish. The basil and garlic I think add the extra kick to this dip that most spinach/artichoke dishes are missing. Will be making this again for sure. Everyone really enjoyed it.
