These are SO good!! They are very rich, but delicous. We have nick named them "Ewey Gooey Bars". Everybody loved them. Even the hubby who is not too big on sweets had seconds! Said they had great flavor.

Monkey Bread II

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
This was okay. I probably wouldn't give it 3 stars, but my little 4 year old loved it. Probably because she thought it has real monkeys in it and that is "cool". I thought it was okay and so did my hubby. My 6 year old took 1 bite and said he hated it, and he is anything but a picky eater.

Vegetable Beef Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
This was tasty, although I thought it could use some pasta or rice to help thicken it up a little. I used all beef broth instead of the water. Great on a cold day with some nice warm home made bread.

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
I think these were a little bland. They could use a little season added to the cream cheese mixture as well as a little shredded cheese and that might help with the blandness, I also noticed that they were greasy, and not something that I could serve to guests.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2005
Very good. I gave 4 stars because it wasn't quite what I was looking for, but it was very good. I left out the sugar, only used a pinch of ground cloves, added bay leaves, garlic and cajun seasoning to spice it up a bit. I threw it all in the blender and then added it to the roux. I found that mine made only 3-4 servings instead of 6 and like others said, the prep time is more like 20 minutes.

Nacho Dip II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
Yummy! The family loved it. I used regular chili and just mixed it all together in a pan on the stove to warm because the kids were starving, and it turned out great.

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2005
Very Yummy!! The hubby loved it (and so did I). I used only a dash of nutmeg, 1/2 cup of the orange juice, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and 2 Tbls cornstarch. It still came out soupy. Next time I will use only 1/4 cup OJ and add another 1-2 Tbls cornstarch to help thicken it up more. I did grease my pan because some had trouble with the crust sticking and it came out perfect. This is a definate keeper. Thank you for sharing!

Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2005
This was my first time ever baking with rhubarb, or even tasting it. So I didn't know what to expect. I found that the filling wasnt quite enough, but other than that, the recipe was good. I gave it 3 stars, not because of the recipe, but I am undecided about rhubarb.

Mom's Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2005
Oh my goodness! This is SO rich. I made this for a potluck and people just raved about it. I have one person tell me this was the best dessert she had ever had! I left the peanuts whole and mixed them with the chocolate sauce on top. I let my sauce cool to room temperature before pouring it on the ice cream but it melted the ice cream a litte and I had little "marshmallow" looking spots in the chocolate where the ice cream floated up to the top. Maybe the sauce could be refrigerated a while before pouring on the ice cream. I personally thought this was just average (a 3 star recipe) but others loved it so I gave it 4 stars.

Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies

Reviewed: May 30, 2005
Yummy!! They were nice and chewy on the inside and perfectly crispy on the outside. I did double the amount of lemon extract and still thought it could use a little more, other then that, they were perfect!

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: May 14, 2005
This was so good. The whole family loved it! My husband told me it was great and told me to make it again, then I told him it was tofu and he changed his mind. He told me to wait until he was finished eating next time. LOL :) This was my first attempt at making tofu, but it tasted great and was not too complicated. After I sliced the tofu, I patted it between paper towels to remove some of the water and then baked it at 350 until just a little golden brown. I then dipped it in egg instead of water before putting it in the bread crumb mixture. Instead of the tomato sauce, I used spaghetti sauce. I was pleased with the results. The texture of the finished product was kinda like scrambled eggs.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
I only used this recipe for the sauce. I put it on some little smokies sausages and it was great! I have never attemped to make a sweet and sour sauce, but this was so easy and I had everything on hand that I needed. It turned out just like I wanted and the hubby LOVED it. The only thing that I did different was add more cornstarch as suggested. Thank you!

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
This is just what I was looking for. I did not use the sesame oil, because I did not have any on hand, and when I cooked my rice, I added 2 tablespoons butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt (I always do when making rice), I also added a little chopped onion that I cooked when I cooked my carrots. Turned out perfect. Thanks for sharing!

Nutty Crispy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
Okay, these cookies are sooo good! I just took my last batch out ot the oven and WOW! I read some of the comments about them being like a sandie and that is what sold me. I have looked over the recipe several times but didnt ever try it because of the nuts. I dont know why, because I love nuts, but for some reason they just didn't sound good. I halved the recipe and still got almost 4 dozen cookies. I forgot to add the nuts to the first half of the dough, but got them in the second half. I used almond, because that is what I had on hand and used half of the butter and replaced the other half with sour cream 'cause I had a little I needed to get rid of. They came out nice and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside (they still arent all the way cooled, so they may crisp up inside). They dont have chocolate in them, but the recipe is on its way to my recipe book.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2005
These turned out so good! The kids even ate them. The only thing I would do different would be to use brown sugar instead of white sugar in the topping.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2005
The hubby loved this one. I only used 4 chicken breasts instead of the 6 and chopped them up after they were cooked. I also used regular cream of mushroom soup because that is what I had. The flavor was great!
