Creamy Twice-Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Excellent! I quadrupled the recipe for company and used a combo of whipped chive & onion cream cheese and plain whipped cream cheese. I also used garlic salt and topped the potatoes w/ shredded cheddar before sprinkling with paprika. I had so much filling that I put the extra in a bowl and baked it with the prepared potatoes. Definitely a crowd pleaser!

Raspberry Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
My mom has made Cherry Berry pie for years, but it has never been one of my favorites because of all the raspberry seeds. However, I made this recipe for company, and it was a hit! The flavor was great (despite all the seeds) :-) I used my mom's crust recipe, which is similar to this one, fresh-picked raspberries, and a crumb topping. We ate the pie when it was still warm, so it was a bit runny. Maybe it will firm up a bit as it sits.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
I thought this dip was excellent. I tried it with corn chips, crackers, and ridged potato chips and liked it best with the crackers. I believe the sauce brand I used was Bertolli.

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Loved it! My family is not usually big on coconut - mostly because of the texture of flaked coconut - so I made the recipe as directed and just left off the flaked coconut. Very moist and tasty! I couldn't find anything called 'coconut cream' in my grocery store and thus used coconut milk. It seemed to work fine.

Easy Ham and Cheese Appetizer Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
This is the second recipe like this I have tried from this site, and although both are good, I prefer this one because of the onion! I used dried minced onion and then let it sit in the creamed butter mixture until softened. I used honey wheat Hawaiian rolls and left them connected - just sliced the tops of in a sheet. Delicious!

Luck o' the Irish Brownie

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
I brought these to an Irish party and made them as directed except that I melted the chocolate and butter together on the stove instead of using the microwave. Everything came out perfectly and looked beautiful - until we ate them. The kids liked them OK, but all of the adults thought they were way too sweet (6 cups of sugar)! My teeth ached, and I couldn't wait to brush that aftertaste away. I will not make these again.

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
My family is not really big on chili, but my husband and I both liked this recipe, and so did one of our kids. I used chipotle diced tomatoes and chipotle hot sauce since that's what I had on hand, and it enhanced the smoky flavor of the chili. I also omitted the habanero pepper and red pepper flakes and halved the other spicy stuff because of the kids. I would make this recipe again.

Carrot, Potato, and Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
We had our St. Patty's Day celebration this past weekend, so I used up the leftover carrots, potatoes and cabbage in this soup. I blended the soup in the hopes that I could get my family to try it, but they weren't willing. I thought it was pretty good and imagine it would be even better if the veggies were cooked in the broth, as directed. I did add a dash of red pepper for a little kick.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This was a very moist and tasty bread - a bit crumbly and less firm than typical Irish Soda Bread. My family really liked it, but my husband suggested that it's more of a "dessert bread." It probably would make a good base for strawberry shortcake.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
This recipe is a keeper! I used chicken leg quarters, which I separated, de-skinned and deboned, and then I marinated them in the sauce for several hours before cooking them (still in the sauce). The flavor was wonderful! I followed other reviewers' advice about doubling the sauce, but I really didn't need to. We drizzled the extra on top of rice and enjoyed it that way.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Great results from an easy recipe! We like our meat a little more well-done, so I kept at 500 a little longer than directed and then let sit in the oven for 3 hours. The meat was the perfect color for us and was still tender. I sliced and served on biscuits with a horseradish sauce.

Easy Sausage Strata

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This recipe was definitely easy and tasty. I gave it four stars instead of five because it's not the type of food I want to eat a lot - lots of fat. I liked another reviewer's suggestion to replace the sausage with lean ham and may try that next time. This strata cooked for me in 40 minutes instead of the 50-60 specified in the recipe.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I'm giving this recipe a five based on the filling and icing, which did taste like a Cinnabon! However, I used the dough from the "Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I" recipe on this site because it was so easy to make the night before and then pop in the oven the next morning.

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I'm giving this recipe a five based on the flavor of the dough and the easiness of the recipe. I used the filling and icing from the "Clone of a Cinnabon" recipe on this site because it sounded more appealing to me.

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
I was disappointed with this recipe and won't make again. Although the meat turned out incredibly moist, it had no flavor. The apple butter combination completely melted and combined with the apple juice to make a runny sauce. (Was I supposed to drain the apple juice?) In hindsight, I should have made a gravy out of the cooked juices because the flavor was good; it just didn't penetrate the meat. One of the big negatives for me was the mess this recipe made. Thank goodness the dish was covered because that sauce splattered everywhere!

Baked Penne with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
This recipe was easy, and my family ate it, but I was a bit disappointed with the lack of flavor in the sauce. I think jarred spaghetti sauce would have tasted better. However, I used sausage links that I sliced and browned. The recipe doesn't specify, but I'm assuming it wants you to use bulk sausage, which may help flavor the sauce better than larger chunks. I didn't feel the oil was necessary for browning the meat.

Party Mimosa

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I made this for a party, and my guests loved it. Since I could not find apricot-mango nectar, I used a 12 oz. can of pure mango nectar and then a 12 oz. can of pineapple-passion fruit nectar. I would love to try it with apricot another time because I think that would add a different level of sweetness.

Pineapple Kugel

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I have never made a kugel before and have only eaten it once, but I made this for a gathering, and everyone liked it. It was absolutely beautiful! Since I doubled the recipe and baked it in a casserole dish, it took much longer to cook all the way through. The bottom was then overdone, but the top tasted great!

Smoky Bacon Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
My husband and I had this appetizer at a party and really liked it, so I was delighted to find the recipe. I could find only the cheese-filled lil' smokies at the store, but they were great. We did not measure the brown sugar, just sprinkled it on to taste. This dish was the hit of our party and disappeared quickly! It's incredibly unhealthy, but oh so yummy!

White Chili I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
Although my kids complained a bit about the spiciness of this dish (which is definitely more of a soup), the family liked it overall. My husband did wish it were thicker. I think I read a tip about mashing some additional beans to thicken the "chili," so I will try that next time. I used pre-cooked, packaged chicken shortcuts and fresh cilantro. Also, I tried substituting 1/2 t. garlic salt for the garlic powder, but that was a mistake -- WAY too salty. I will just used minced garlic next time or break down and buy garlic powder.
