Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
My family loved these cookies. I hate sifting flour, so I only did one sift and it was just fine. I do think a little less flour might be better (less cakey) and a tad less ginger. One Tablespoon is quite a lot. Oh and I used real butter. Yum!

Taco Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
The salad was okay. I only added 3/4 of the bottle of dressing. To me it was too sweet. There are better taco salads out there.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
This was a huge hit with the fam. My kids were actually moaning with delight at dinner. It is so easy and delicious. Way better than a spiral ham!

PHILADELPHIA Vanilla Mousse Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
The cheesecake was good, but I wasn't crazy about the fluffy topping... I think I would prefer a sour cream type. I did not do the cookie crust, I did a graham cracker crust which is delish. It is just crackers, butter, sugar and cinnamon.

Striped Delight

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
I make this for almost every holiday party. It is always requested. SO delish! You just can't go wrong with the pudding/oreo/cream cheese combo. One of my very favorite desserts.

Brownie Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Wow this frosting is SO delish! Even my husband who normally is anti-brownie-frosting thought they were amazing. P.S. my secret to ultra chewy brownies is beat the eggs together and then pour out about 1/4 of the egg in the sink. Mmmm perfect!

Strawberry Sauza®-Rita

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
This is my new favorite drink! I love a recipe that will make up a pitcher. It's perfect for any occasion...In fact I think I'll have to start making up reasons just to make this! Strawberry liqueur was impossible to find, so we just subbed margarita mix. I can see that drinking too much might give you a stomach ache. People that don't even like tequila like this. Make sure you use blanco.

Pistachio Mallow Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This is a classic pot luck dish. Kids love it. I leave out the nuts. It has a very fluffy texture.

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Nice easy meal. Kids like it. I'm not crazy about the cream soup. I would like it better if made with a real homemade cream sauce or something. But it's good for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
The cake is really good. I made homemade cream cheese frosting for it and I actually didn't care for it with the banana cake. I have always made this with another frosting recipe that's more like a buttercream and it actually uses a raw egg in it. I prefer that frosting with the cake better. Don't get me wrong I LOVE cream cheese frosting...with pumpkin bars!

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
I thought it was pretty good but honestly prefer crockpot better. The meat just wasn't as tender as I am used to. I usually do my roast in the crock with a can of mush soup and a packet of brown gravy. It is fall apart tender. I thought this gravy was pretty good too, and the picky fam all ate it.

Monster Cookies VI

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This was my first attempt ever making monster cookies. They came out amazing! This recipe will definitely be used over and over. I do need to get an ice cream scoop though.

O'Brian's Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
This is my favorite potato dish. It is perfect for any occasion and everyone loves it! I don't usually put the corn flake topping on though. But other than that follow the recipe exact. You will find many other recipes that omit the butter, but to me that's the best part! I don't use the shredded hash browns, but the chunky ones. And make sure your potatoes are completely thawed, you want the casserole to be soft. This will be the first to go at any get-togethers so don't plan on leftovers.
