Peanut Butter Cookies IV

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Fantastic. Made exactly to recipe and added chocolate chips. Very moist and stayed soft even though they were left out over night (because husbands can't follow directions). Only 4 stars thought because directions said 10 to 12 minutes and mine nearly burned at the 10 minute mark. Otherwise fantastic!

Kerry's French Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
Been promising my other half a french toast breakfast for awhile now, so I came here for inspiration. I Love the recipe for the cream cheese stuffing, but I'm afraid that a simple (very simple) egg batter just isn't enough for me. Luckily, I used left over cinnamon bread to make these, otherwise I know all I would have tasted was the filling and the egg. Next time I will use a heartier batter, and probably a thicker bread that I can actually stuff rather than sandwich. I will also use clarified butter rather than strait butter for the frying. Can't wait to try these again!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
Yum Yum Yum. I played with these a little. I used home made apple sauce which is rather sweet so I cut the sugar a bit. I used whole wheat flour and also used mini chocolate chips, and replaced half a cup of those with chocolate malt powder. YUM! I would highly suggest giving it a try. Otherwise, and amazing recipe. Thanks!

California Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
Going to have to try these again. Didn't realize until after that I messed up the measuring. They tasted okay, but I'm going to have to give them another shot. For now, just 3 stars.

Oatmeal Crispies

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
I halved the recipe but kept the spices the same. The cookies taste AMAZING, but they didn't come out very crispy. I'm actually happy about that, but I do think that a recipe should deliver what is promised. I did not change the recipe at all, other than the spices. WILL make these again though.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Just okay for me. Made it for a Bridal Shower and didn't like it much so I ended up tweaking it a LOT. Added POM, Orange juice, ginger ale, and a little vodka.

Amish Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Ehh.. these were okay. Came out too dry and didn't really spread much. Flavor was pretty good. I made them to the T the first time, but if I make them again, I will make the following changes: 3 3/4 cups of flour instead of 4 1/2. No cream of tartar. What the heck is the point of having that junk in a cookie recipe? Adds nothing.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
I was a little iffy about these at first. Had to make some chocolate cupcakes for a cupcake decorating activity at my best friend's Bridal Shower that I was catering and hosting. Her colors were black and pink, so I wanted pink cupcake and chocolate cupcakes. I tested these the day before and they were DELICIOUS!! Super moist and fluffy, I LOVED them. I did not make the frosting, however, and I only gave four stars because, while they tasted amazing, they had a weird green tint to them. No one said anything, but it bothered me the whole time we were decorating cupcakes. Only think I changed was using black cherry jelly in place of grape because you will never find grape jelly in my home. I think it is revolting and vile. =)

Buttery Cupcakes with Coconut Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Yum! Yum! Yum!! Made these for my best friend's Bridal Shower that I both catered and hosted. She wanted to do cupcake decorating, and her bridal colors are Pink and Black. I tested this recipe the week before the party, and FELL in LOVE with it. Didn't even bother with the coconut topping, just made the cupcakes and they were DELICIOUS! I added red food die to make them pink, and EVERYONE loved them. By far the best vanilla cupcakes I have ever had!

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Delicious! Easy to make, easy to spread, easy to color, and dries very nicely. I made a double batch for my best friend's Bridal Shower that I both catered and hosted. She wanted to have cupcake decorating, so I made this frosting with a variety of colors and everyone thought it was delicious. I only used about 3/4 of the powdered sugar, though.. because when I tested it, I found it to be a bit too sweet. Thanks Rick! Great recipe!

Sloppy Joe Pockets

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Oh. My. Goodness. I have made these three times now, and I am ADDICTED!! So delicious, and SO simple! I have made a few adjustments... So I made these for my best friend's Bridal Shower that I was both catering and hosting, so I had to make them a bit more dainty. I added red and green bell peppers to the filling, and made them smaller. After prepping 48 of these bad boys,(triple recipe) I have come up with a quick and simple procedure to make these worth the effort. Roll each biscuit flat, then cut in half horizontally. place a piece of cheese (I used sandwich sliced Cojack from Sargento) on each half, diagonally from each other. (I do top left and bottom right) then spoon a small amount of the filling. Fold the uncovered dough over (Top piece goes right to left, bottom piece goes right to left) then crimp very well with a fork and place on baking sheet. Keep going until baking sheet is full. Then baste each picket with egg wash (I just use my finger, it's faster and easier) and then re-crimp with a fork and reshape delicately with your hands. They should look like little clams. Bake until golden brown! These were SUCH a hit at my party, and were the only item I served that had no left overs. I kept a couple reserved for myself, and reheated them the next day in the toaster oven, and they were just as delicious. Thank you for an AMAZING recipe!!! I will be using this again, and again, and again!!

Chili Con Queso Bites

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Prepped these for my best friend's Bridal Shower that I was catering and hosting, but never actually made them until two days after I prepped them. When I finally did make them, I was pleasantly surprised by their flavor. I remember adding some extra spices and taco seasoning, and they had a very pleasant kick. Not AMAZING, but pretty darn good. Will for sure make these again. Thank you!

Apple-Rosemary Blue Cheese Bites

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Made these for my best friend's Bridal Shower that I was catering and hosting. They went over pretty well, but I had about half of them left. I tripled the recipe and used only about half of the required blue cheese and about 1/2 cup of extra cream cheese. They were alright, but I just wasn't a huge fan. I could only eat about one or two before I got sick of the flavor. Not sure I will make them again.

Caramel Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Pretty darn yummy! I made the following changes: My bread was not day old, and I used two different kinds: Cinnamon swirl bread and croissants. I used 8 mini croissants and about 6 slices of the bread, purchased from Albertsons, and I halved the recipe below. I also replaced half of the water with melted butter (I replace as much water with as much butter as possible in all recipes.. water is flavorless =( ) and I also did not use the cinnamon because it was already in the bread. I changed the procedure a bit as well. Poured the water brown sugar mixture over the bread in a large bowl. Mixed the eggs with the sugar, vanilla, and salt, then tempered in the hot milk. I then poured that mixture over the bread and mixed it up, then filled 4 custard ramicans (two had raisins, two did not.) Baked them for 24 mins. I covered my bread puddings with my "Cheater's Crème Anglaise" (Melted vanilla ice cream.. shhhhh!!!) Very small modifications, one VERY delicious dessert!

Creamy Lemon Squares

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
These were pretty yummy. I added extra lemon juice and left out the zest, as I do not care for the texture. Did no have vanilla wafers so I used gram cracker crumbs, but I accidentally used too much. I wish the recipe had a measurement rather than "20 vanilla wafers" Will most likely attempt these again and try to perfect the crust. Also, I found that these do not last long if place in the refrigerator. =(

Super Easy Doughnuts

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Just okay. Dough was a bit bland so I added some almond extract for an extra kick. I followed the advice of another reviewer and used 6 tb of milk per the original recipe. Doughnuts came out a little too dense for my liking, and kept bursting as they cooked. I ended up with doughnut flowers rather than holes. I covered mine with cinnamon brown sugar, powdered sugar, and a blackberry cream cheese glaze. I may try this recipe again, but if it doesn't work the second time, I will be looking for another doughnut recipe.

Angel Whispers

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
Simply amazing. I ended up adding extra lemon for a bigger kick, and spread some of the lemon curd on top then sprinkled with powdered sugar for a more pleasing look. Definitely a keeper!

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
Made three batches of this dough for a pizza making party the other night. Turned out fabulous, but I did take some of the advice and altered a few things. First, I felt that 2 tablespoons of olive oil was simply too much, so I reduced it to one. I also didn't feel that 30 minutes to rise was NEARLY enough, so I let my batches rise for about 3 hours. Turned out perfect. This is an excellent base recipe and so simple to make, I would suggest it to anyone. Thanks, Phyllis!

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Love these. I have made multiple variations with a bunch of different things in them, and every time they have turned out amazing! I reduced the flour a bit, took out the water, and upped the sugar to give a bit of a flatter cookie without being TOO flat, and candied the walnuts for extra crunch. YUM. YUM. YUM. Overall a GREAT recipe! I have also done a few versions without the nuts, and added cinnamon. I call them chocolate spice cookies, GREAT for the holidays!

Football Party Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Wow, wow, wow. I made this for Superbowl today. Was fairly easy to make, and once I put it out, I think it lasted all of 20 minutes. I barely even got any! I also used Fritos scoops for the sturdiness, and I would suggest doubling recipe if you are serving more than 8 people, or it won't last very long at all. Thanks for a GREAT Game Day recipe! A new staple at all of my parties. =)
