BBQ Glazed Homemade Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
These meatballs made for a family pleasing meal. I prepared these weeks before we actually had them, and then stuck them in the freezer. The night before we had them for dinner, I put them in the fridge and then the slow cooker the next morning with the sauce poured over. Six hours later, they were tender, juicy, and ready to eat. My husband and one daughter had these on hoagie rolls, and the rest of us enjoyed them over white rice. Considering how easy they were to make, freeze, and prepare, we will be having these again.

French Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Much like Dianne's Donut Muffins, only on a larger scale, so not as much dipping required after baking. These baked up light, moist and were a fabulous breakfast treat. I always use the full amount of nutmeg (LOVE that spice), and the whole family loves these muffins. We even had a few leftover, and they were great reheated the following morning.

Apricot Cranberry Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Oh, how I loved this cake. I have a major sweet tooth, but can usually exhibit a little self control. This cake was the exception. I found both dried apricots and cherries on sale at a local market, and knew that I would find some recipe to use them in. Knowing that I was the only fan of these dried fruits, I knew that I would be eating the majority of whatever I baked (I just didn't realize it would be in one weekend:). I did cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 9X5 pan. It was so moist, full of flavor, and the bits of dried fuit were just the perfect compliment to the sweet cake... and then the sweet glaze topped by some additional almonds (that I added). I seriously couldn't stop eating this, and it was still good the next day. I'm sure it would have been good for a few days, it just didn't last that long. A keeper, for sure!

Blueberry Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I made this pie for Thanksgiving, and it was perfect. I did prepare it differently, cooking the filling on the stove, like I usually do when I make a cherry pie. I used corn starch instead of flour, and brought the mixture to a low boil, it thickened right up, and then I poured it into the crust. I also added 1/4 tsp almond extract to the filling, just as a personal preference. The filling was not runny, but also not dry. Everyone really enjoyed the pie, and I know that I will be making it again.

Frosted Cranberries

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I was looking for a festive and pretty way to top some mini cranberry cheesecakes that I made for a party, and this recipe could not have been more perfect for that. I was actually nervous to try one after I finished, fearing that the cranberries would still be very tart, even coated in sugar. But these are so good, almost addicting. I kept eating and eating, until I realized I was going to run out of my cheesecake toppers. These are a great addition to holiday recipes... beautiful and delicious!

Make Ahead Manicotti

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I have to agree with other reviewers that stuffing an uncooked manicotti shell is much easier than stuffing a cooked one. But even after sitting in my fridge overnight and most of the following day, the edges of these were still hard after baking. I think that you really need to drown the manicotti in the sauce in order to get all of the shell to be soft. We cut a little of the edge off, and every other part was devoured. My kids loved these. One other change I made was to add in some fresh spinach that I sliced very thinly and then added to the cheese mixture. My kids didn't even know it was there, and it was an easy and delicious way to add some green to their meal.

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I have made this many times before for get togethers, as it is easy and perfect for large crowds. This particular time I was making it for a lunch with some ladies. I chose to bake this in little foil lined square pans, and then after removing them, put all of the gooey delicious toppings on. They were very cute little cakes, and everyone loved them!

Chicken and Green Chili Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Simple, easy and delicious enchiladas. I love the fact that there are very few ingredients, all of which I usually have on hand. This recipe came together quickly and was easy for a weeknight meal.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Love the citrus flavor with the cranberries. This recipe was easy and turned out terrific, without a lot of fuss. I used some of it to top mini orange-kissed cheesecakes (so delish with the sauce), and saved the rest to have on Thanksgiving.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
In the end, this turned out okay for me. But in the future I will stick to making my lemon curd on the stove. I ended up microwaving this for close to 6 minutes, and it still hadn't thickened like I had hoped it would. I also put this through a fine mesh strainer to make sure there were no bits of egg left behind. After cooling and refrigerating, it did thicken a little more, but never did get to the consistency that I get when I cook it on the stove.

White Cake Frosting I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
I was looking for a true white frosting to top my rainbow cupcakes, and this one was perfect. Because I don't have clear vanilla, I omitted that. The frosting was perfect for piping on the cupcakes and held its shape nicely. Thanks!

Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
I made these for a potluck, and they were gone in minutes. The only minor change I made was to use regular graham crackers instead of cinnamon. The flavors came together very nicely, and the swirling is very pretty on these bars.

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
So good!!! These were much easier to make than I expected. I got kind of a late start making these (at about 8 pm) and was worried that I would be up half the night filling them, but I was done in about an hour, and they were gone much quicker than that. The cookies bake up in such nicely rounded shapes, and the frosting was the perfect consitency. I actually found it easier to put the frosting in a piping bag to fill these. They are really good, still slightly warm from the oven with the frosting practically running out of them. We lost a few cookies this way:)

Make-Ahead Pizza Meat Loaves

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
I didn't make the as "make-ahead" meat loaves. I baked and ate them the same day I made them. The kids really liked these, but my husband and I were on the fence. They were a little on the dry side and a little too much like a huge meatball, instead of a moist meatloaf. I actually think that making these into small meatballs and cooking them in a slow cooker in the sauce would be a better idea.

Grilled Garlic Parmesan Zucchini

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Great summer (or fall, if you are like me and still have zucchini to use up) side dish. I did use the broiler to make this, and it worked just fine. The garlic and parmesan add great flavor to the zucchini, but I would cut back on the butter a little. Ours seemed to be a little too wet and oily, even after baking. I am looking forward to trying this on the grill next summer.

Banana Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
We thoroughly enjoyed this bread. I make banana bread almost weekly ( I am beginning to think my family is forgetting to eat the bananas on purpose:)), and this was a nice change from my go-to recipe. The oats add a nice texture to the bread. I also love adding cinnamon to my banana bread, as I love that little added flavor. I did use butter instead of shortening and only used 1/4 cup and 1/4 cup applesauce. I did not add the raisins, but did add in a little bit of chopped pecans. I am so glad that I deviated from the norm and tried this recipe!

Brownie Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
My kids really enjoyed these, but I still prefer just a regular, gooey, fudgy brownie. Because these are baked like cupcakes, they have a hard top and edge to them, and were more cake-like than fudge-like. I felt that they definitely needed frosting and topped them with a chocolate buttercream. I did not use the pecans because I was mainly making these for kids. I also did not bake for 35 minutes. Watch closely, because mine were done in about 25 minutes.

Peanut Butter Temptations II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Much like the peanut butter cup cookie recipe from this site, this recipe is a guaranteed kid pleaser. I make these all the time for parties and gatherings for my kids, and everyone loves them. Sometimes I use different seasonal sprinkles on the tops to fit the occasion.

Raspberry Peach Crumble

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
A little runnier than I would have liked, but the flavor was terrific. I was lucky enough to have both fresh peaches and fresh raspberries that we had just picked. The combination of fruit was perfect and the buttery oat topping went very nicely. I made these in 4 individual ramekins and everyone really enjoyed these for dessert.

Chili Tortilla Stacks

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
These were easy and quick to prepare and delicious to eat. This time around, I chose to use ground turkey and cut the recipe in half to make 2 whole "stacks". This was more than enough to serve 5 of us for dinner. We cut these into wedges and served with sour cream and salsa.
