Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2003
I steamed the carrots instead of boiling them to keep more of the flavor and nutrients. I don't like my vegetables really sweet, so I used about 1 1/2 tbsp butter and 3 tbsp brown sugar. It was just enough to make them slightly sweet without hiding the natural good flavor.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2003
Used a 2 1/2 lb. angus beef roast. Took others' advice & used 3 cans of cream soups, added oregano, 3 garlic cloves, marjoram, and onion powder. Added potatoes, celery, baby carrots, mushrooms, and celery. Next time, I think I'll only use 2 cans of soup because it made an immense amount of gravy. Also, I think I'll leave out the potatoes and make mashed potatoes instead. Make sure to leave plenty of time for this to get done--because of all the liquid, it took 12 hrs for my little roast to get done.

Beefy Lentil Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2003
A great & easy recipe. I did take another reviewer's advice & added a bit more flavor by adding cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Thought it still needed more & added a few dashes of hot sauce. I used about 8 oz. fresh mushrooms instead of canned & 1/2 ground beef & 1/2 ground turkey.

Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2004
Didn't change a thing. Fabulous but rich. Definitely have some milk or water to go with it. Next time, I might chop up some extra heath candy bars for the bottom and middle layers though. Will be making this one again.

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2003
I don't like cheese, but I halved this recipe for my husband's office party. He came back with an empty platter and said everyone loved it. This is a very quick & easy recipe. I used 1/3 less fat block of cream cheese and only about 2/3 cup of chopped pecans -- it didn't need the entire cup.

Chicken Pasta I

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2003
Very simple and delicious. I too used olive oil to grease my pan. I did add 1 clove of garlic to the chicken while it was cooking. Next time, I may use 2. I also used 2 cans of diced tomatoes, more mushrooms, and some matchstick slivers of squash and zucchini. I think that 2 tbsp of Italian seasoning was too much, and when I make this again, I will use 2 cans of tomatoes with Italian seasoning instead.

Rich Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2003
These are my new favorite cookies! Do you have any idea how hard it is to not gobble these down until you get sick? I had to bag a few for myself & keep them hidden so the cookie monster wouldn't get them (my husband). Would make a great gift.

As great as everyone says. I topped it with real whipped cream & it was fabulous!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2002
This is just like the recipe my grandma made for us when I was little. I made my own graham cracker crusts, which make it so much better. Very rich though, so don't eat a big piece.

Key Lime Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2003
Easy to make & delicious. This was a really nice, refreshing dessert for our blazing hot 4th of July cookout. I didn't halve the glaze recipe. I had a little bit leftover, but not tons. And the glaze really adds to the overall flavor so be generous with it.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2003
I would have liked to marinate the chicken in the lime mixture, but I didn't have enough time. As it was, I ended up adding using the whole lime & some cayenne pepper to give it more flavor. Next time, I will definitely marinate the chicken for a few hours. And I didn't cube it, I sliced it into thin strips. Served with the Black Beans with Rice recipe from this site, tortilla chips with salsa, and some lime flavored Tostitoes for myself. If you can't tell, I love lime. A good and easy recipe. But again, marinate if you're expecting it to have a stronger lime flavor.

White Chocolate Snack Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2003
I love this! I've been making a similar recipe for a few years, but mine uses more cereal & 2 bags of white chips. Makes a gigantic amount--almost 2 gallon ziploc bagfuls. Once you start munching, you'll have to have someone pull you away. Very, very addicting stuff.

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2003
This really didn't look appetizing. As I was cutting it, I was thinking, why did I make this? Even during my first few small bites, I wasn't sure, but the more you eat, the more you like it. We think it tastes like Domino's chicken kickers on a crust. I used a Boboli crust, about 3/4 cup peppercorn ranch dressing, 2 oz. of hot sauce, 2 small pinches of crushed red pepper, reduced fat mozzarella, and topped with sliced mushrooms. I did finely cube & shred the chicken. Baked for 12 minutes to get a slightly crisper crust. We couldn't eat a lot because it's spicy and rich.

Creamy Orange Cake

Reviewed: May 27, 2003
This was the hit of our Memorial Day cookout. Light, cool, and creamy, it's perfect. And it's not really that sweet. I think I'll try cupcakes the next time too. (And the orange cake mix IS hard to find. If you have Meijer grocery stores, they're the only ones that sell the DH orange cake mix around here.)

Jalapeno Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2003
Great! I added a whole jalapeno to this. My husband thought it was too much, but I loved it. Of course, I do love the Auntie Anne's jalapeno pretzels & he doesn't...

Pumpkin Pie Spice II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2003
Very fast & easy. I need pumpkin pie spice like 2x a year, so this saves me $ and it's one less spice to keep track of. Thanks!!

Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

Reviewed: May 16, 2002
So moist and delicious! This was so good, we couldn't stop eating it. I did make a glaze with powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla to drizzle over the top.

Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2003
I'm sick today & wanted to make something easy for lunch, and this fit the bill. It tasted a little bland, so I added some dashes of hot sauce and a sprinkle of cayenne. This is so very good. I know I'll be making it again. Would make great burritos.

Grilled Turkey Club

Reviewed: May 30, 2003
This is very good, but I think I like our 'recipe' better: Toast the bread instead of cooking it in a skillet. Spread 1 piecee of toast with mayo, add 1 slice cheese, lettuce, 1 slice of tomato, 1 slice bacon torn in half, turkey, then a 2nd piece of bacon torn in half, another slice of tomato, and your second piece of toast with mayo. Add a side of chips, preferably barbecue, a dill pickle spear, and you'll be in heaven.

Paprika Chicken with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2002
I served this over angel hair pasta which I very lightly buttered. The mushrooms were so good! But I did sprinkle some onion powder in with them so they wouldn't taste as buttery. I liberally sprinkled the chicken with the spices, so no problem with blandness. Used extra mushrooms too. Served with hot, crispy whole wheat rolls.
