Milky Way® Cupcake Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
I was somewhat disappointed, especially since some reviewers raved excitedly about this. I was expecting something unique as well as distinctly tasting of Milky Way candy bars. I have to agree with those reviewers who found this overly sweet with not much flavor,

Montreal Steak Seasoned Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
A little heavy on the Montreal Steak Seasoning for me but easy enough to adjust. I used real bacon and a mild cheddar. Flavorful, delicious and well-liked by my dinner guests.

Chicken Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Excellent, and not just for chicken! Don't know what I'd do without it. Perfect blend of ingredients in just the right proportions. I've grown to automatically reach for it in the spice cabinet!

Mushroom Cheddar Batter Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Although this was not really batter bread (yeast bread that is beaten rather than kneaded and formed) I was still eager to try it. It had great reviews and enticing ingredients. But I should have paid more attention to the high ratio of eggs to flour because if I had I probably could have predicted that not only is this not batter bread, it’s not bread at all. The texture is very eggy and has no crumb. It smelled good as it was baking and it tasted good too. But this is more like an oven omelet, so for that reason alone this recipe was very disappointing.

Buttermilk Mango-Berry Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
This is THE perfect crumb cake. Some can be dry or have a topping that just isn't right. This is moist, buttery delicious and the crumb topping is excellent. The buttermilk makes this especially moist and tasty, I think, and the slight hint of nutmeg adds another dimension of flavor. While I can see making this with lots of different fruits as possibilities, or even plain for that matter, I liked the combination of raspberries and mango. Thanks for the great recipe Naples34102

Big Mama's Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
I served this with "Fruity Fun Skewers" at a get-together and most of the guests passed it by, preferring their fruit without. I think maybe it was the idea of a fruit dip rather than the dip itself that wasn't all that appealing. I thought it was tasty, but I think it could benefit by some sort of liqueur for flavor, Amaretto for instance, and might also be better lightened up with some fresh whipped cream.

Fruity Fun Skewers

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
Refreshingly different appetizer amongst the usual dips and spreads. I used a variety of summer fruits as shown in one of the photos: kiwi, pineapple, cantaloupe and strawberries. I served these with "Big Mama's Fruit Dip" from this site, but most everyone ate them without. So pretty, and one of the unusual good-for-you additions to the party.

Garlic Parmesan Orzo

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
I wanted a side dish with some flavor but I wanted it subtle. I didn't want it to steal the show! This delivered. I followed the recipe to the letter, but at the end decided to add a few more fresh herbs. I especially liked the creaminess the milk (I used cream) and Parmesan provided. I know I'll be coming back to this recipe!

Southwest Summer Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Great marinade! Nice change from the same old barbecue sauce or the (awful in my opinion) teriyaki marinades. Nice flavor without being overpowering.

Peanut Butter and Cream Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
This dessert ROCKS!!! Peanut butter and chocolate heaven! Not really a brownie, more like a decadent, impressive dessert. I followed the recipe, using a 9-in. springform pan, but instead of the chocolate shavings I used Naples34102 idea for the topping: chopped up peanut butter cups, and a drizzle of caramel and hot fudge sauces. If you want a dessert that's really easy and a real showstopper don't hesitate with this recipe!
