To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Wow! This was a wonderfully rich recipe. I did add sauted mushrooms. I only sauted them for about 4 minutes so they didn't get mushy when added to the pasta. I also added fresh ground nutmeg on top...double Wow!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
OMG! I have never been able to get these cookies to work...these did! Based on reviews I changed a few things. 1. Rolled the dough into small, teaspooned sized balls. 2. Used the lid of a chapstick container to make the indentation for the jam. 3. Placed jam in a baggie and snipped end so I could squeeze into hole without getting it all over. (Worked perfectly!) 3. Placed in fridge for 15 minutes. 4. Baked for 10 minutes and then added just a tad more jam to the cookies cuz a lot melts (I like a lot). 5. Placed back in oven to finish cooking. 6. Used the baggie method again to drizzle on the icing. I can't wait til the next time to make these cookies! Yummy!!

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
WOW! I made these two days before Thanksgiving to test the recipe. They were so good I almost ate all of them! I will be proud to serve these at Thanksgiving. To add my own special touch I used Truffle Salt instead of regular salt and it was G-R-E-A-T!

Gunline Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Very yummy! I needed more caffiene so I added a 'shot' of espresso that they sell in individual packets at the grocery! It worked. I may use this recipe as Christmas Presents in a Jar!

Cream of Chicken with Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
GREAT CREAM SOUP! Instead of water used canned chicken broth. Cut up the veggies real little and used one carrot. Also, substitued butter for oil. Oh...I don't care for wild rice so left it out. After I sauted the veggies, I added the wine at that time. I will definetly make this one again. Worth it for sure!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
This recipe was a major hit at Christmas! They were eaten up within 5 minutes! I added a bit more chayenne pepper (personal taste), green onions instead of onion powder, doubled the garlic and added more cheese. I did make two days prior and that was wonderful to only have to pop into the oven. I will make again, and again, and again...

Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup)

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Wonderful on a cold winters night! I did as suggested and cooked the meat for 2-3 hours. Meat fell off bones! I like it a little spicier so I used a can of Rotel instead of plain tomatoes. Worked wonderful. Had leftovers for almost a week! Will def make again...probably next weekend! :>)

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
...FIVE STARS +.... These are awesome. I made the cake and mixed in icing using a fork (I didn't want it too mushy). Left in fridge overnight. Shaped into balls and put balls in freezer for at least 3 hours. Then dipped in the melted chocolate and white chocolate bark. I sprinkled some with crushed pecans and some with crushed Oreos. They are a major hit! They are perfect to place in a box and give as Christmas goodies. I already have another batch in my fridge. I have gotten so many compliments!! Woohoo...my new dessert staple has been found! Thanks much to whoever created this recipe!

Tiramisu Toffee Dessert

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I will make this dessert over and over and over again. It was a HUGE hit! I got so many compliments that I starting getting embarrassed. I altered slightly. 1. Used 2 SaraLee frozen pound cakes. 2. Used International Cafe French Vanilla coffe with some Bailey's Irish Cream 3. Layered in triffle bowl as follows- cake, coffee, frosting, Heath Bar Crunchies, cake, coffee, frosting, Heath Bar Crunchies. Made the night before. There were no leftovers. I should have made two! I can't wait to make this again and again. Everyone must make this at least once!!

Nana's Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
This was wonderful. I will always prepare acorn squash this way from now on. The salt/pepper really help bring out the savory taste.

Fideo

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
EXCELLENT! I sauted 1/2 onion along with the fideo for about 7 minutes stirring constantly so that the fideo wouldn't burn. Added 2 garlic cloves for 30 seconds. Added 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1/2 can tomato sauce, cumin, and salt. After liquid became creamy I added the 2nd half of the sauce as directed.So I really didn't change it up that much. Just added personal tastes. I will definetly use this recipe again. Oh..when I ate it I had shredded chicken with white corn tortillas on the side. THIS ONE IS A KEEPER!

My boyfriend made this for guests and it was perfect! We didn't have to worry about cooking on the morning of our football game. Everything was done the day before. Made it again on the next football weekend! We make again and again.

Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
GREAT RECIPE! This soup turned out wonderful. I cut down on the Old Bay as did others and I do agree that 3T would be a bit much for my taste. However, this is a recipe that will be used again and again. Thanks Karyn!

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
This certainly is an addicting, delishous, yummy recipe!! After reading reviews, I decided try both saltines and graham crackers in the same pan. I liked the graham crackers better...but that's a personal taste. Also, I found it a lot easier to crumble the crackers into small size pieces and put that on the pan instead of individual crackers. This way all the cracker pieces were covered with the sugar/butter mix. I was very disappointed that most of the pecans fell off the crackers so on my second batch I added in the cup of pecans to the sugar/butter mix BEFORE pouring over crackers. That worked out wonderful!! Be sure to buy extra of all incredients because you'll definetly want to make a second batch.
