Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Just ok for me. not sure if it was too much of one thing or not enough of another or what, but I will probably try a different recipe next time.

Easy Pumpkin Cream Trifle

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
This turned out way better than it sounded. I made some pumpkin muffins I didn't care for that much. I was heading to a football party so I thought I would try to salvage the muffins and turn them into something else. I found this recipe. There was none left by the end of the game. I did follow the advice of others. I had 3 layers including a cream cheese and cool whip mix, a vanilla pudding/pumpkin puree mix and pumpkin muffins torn in bite-sized pieces. I bought sugar coated pecans and crushed for the topping.

Football Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Good taste and good idea. I am not the best at making a ball of cheese look like a football I have found. I attempte the crumbles bacon for the outer layer but that was going to take a TON of bacon and I didn't have much on hand. I tried leaving the taco seasoning on the outside, but if you plan to wrap the ball up and tote it anywhere, the seasoning either sinks into the cheese or gets stuck on the plastic wrap and you have a really strange colored football. My advice: bring the taco seasoning with you and sprinkle it on once you get to yur destination. The cheese slices for laces turned out well. Despite the appearance of MY football, half of it was gone by the end of the game so that earns it 4 stars. Had all of it been eaten like most appetizers I bring, it would have recieved 5.

Lasagna Spirals

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
I made these for supper club. I used cream cheese instead of ricotta cheese because the alfredo version called for that and I wanted to keep things simple. I also added a little chopped, cooked chicken to the filling. It was delicious. Very good reheated as well.

#1 Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Delicious if you like pumpkin spice cake. This is very similar but in small little round packages. I made these for a friend in the hospital that loves pumpkin bread along with a chocolate chip recipe from this site. He shared the choc chop cookies w/ his friends, but no one was allowed any of his #1 pumpkin spice cookies.

A Firefighter's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
I followed the recipe except I used a brown sugar BBQ sauce and a bit more of it. I chose very lean ground beef. I made 8 mini loaves instead of 1 big one so I only cooked it for 45 minutes then 15 minutes, respectively. A family friend joined us for dinner. He and my husband both thought it was very good. I think we all prefer the ketchup, not because this was bad, but because it is the taste we are accustomed to having with meatloaf. However, I set a bottle of ketchup out and nobody used it. I would make this recipe again.

Carla's Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Very good. Made for wedding shower with fun fruity skewers. It was just sweet enough. I did use 16oz each of marshmallow creme, cool whip, and cream cheese for a large crowd and had MORE than enough.

Prosciutto Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
This was great to me because I took some other reviewer's advice and added different cheeses to the filling. I bought expensive Boar's Head Prosciutto sliced sandwich style and made 24 mini-muffin cups full and had PLENTY of prosciutto left. So I may only get about a half pound next time. The cups were a little difficult to make, but if the meat starts falling apart, just shove it in there. It seems to hold its shape well after baking. I mixed 1/2 cup of ricotta w/ 1/2 cup of feta a bit of parmesan. I used all 10oz of a frozen spinach package so mine was REALLY spinachy. I would recommend mixing the garlic in with the ricotta to get an even mix. The garlic kind of stuck in one corner after mixing and left some bites a bit TOO garlicky (if that is possible :)) the end product was good. It was a nice low carb addition to the gathering. It went really well with red wine. It also was very good cooled down or hot. It reheated well the next morning in the microwave for breakfast too.

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Very pretty! However, the cheese started drying out very quickly after I set the tray out. It tasted much better when I started making them than when they actually were eaten just about an hour later.

Jalapeno Margaritas

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
LOVED THEM. SO DID MY HUSBAND. WHEN SHAKED WITH SEEDLESS BUT FRESH JALAPENOS, YOU GET A NICE MILD SPICE. IF YOU WANT A MORE BURNING YOUR LIPS KIND OF DRINK, MUDDLE THE JALAPENOS A BIT IN THE SHAKER BEFORE ADDING OTHER INGREDIENTS. FIRE!

Fruity Fun Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
MAde for a wedding shower this past weekend. I love the rainbow look that someone posted a picture of here so I used the same: kiwi, pineapple, canteloupe, strawberries, and grapes. I arranged them on a large round tray with the fruit dip in the middle. People didn't really eat them during the appetizer portion of the evening, but they disappeared around dessert-time. Thanks for the idea.

Grapefruit Margaritas

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
This is a lot like my recipe for beer margarita except replacing grapefruit juice for the beer. I liked these better, but I LOVE grapefruit juice!!! I used 100% juice which is a little tart for most people, but I thought the ingredients were perfect together. I will most definitely make these again!!!

Chicken Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
I had this at a party and couldn't believe it contained canned chicken. I made it later for another party and it was well-liked. THEN I made it at the beach for a crowd of hungry guests. They watched me make it and very few people ate it because I used chicken from a pouch. I am pretty sure if they had not seen me make it, they would have liked it as much as me. I also think it is better if it has a few hours to sit and let the flavors mesh. I will make it again, especially because it is SO EASY! You can use low-fat cream cheese without changing the taste too much.

Made this with 16oz of LIGHT sour cream, and only 1/4 cup light mayo + 1 pkt ranch dressing mix. It was still really creamy and flavorful AND BEST OF ALL EASY!!! Served with celery, carrots, cucumbers, and cauliflower for a small crowd.

Sausage Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I have made a version of these before. I used shredded cheddar cheese and added a smidge of ranch dressing seasoning mix to the cream cheese instead of using the dressing. I also grilled them for about 15 minutes. I don't know if I chose really small jalepenos or what, but these things had some heat. I scraped the insides out the best I could. They were still awesome and were all gone by the time the main course was ready. We just all had a little tear in our eye after each bite and drink to chase the heat. Would still make again ;)
