Fuzzy Navel Slush

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
This is delicious, although it is a little sweet if you plan to drink all night...but I still love it!

Gingerbread Coffee

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
AMAZING! I was a little skeptical because I am not a huge fan of molasses, so I scaled it down to one serving for starters and WOW...it's the middle of Summer, and I cannot WAIT for Fall and Winter because I'm going to make this ALL of the time! I'm actually thinking about making a larger amount of the 'syrup' to store in the fridge so it's a little more convenient to make. I used fat free cream and cool whip and it was delicious!

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
I just made this and the soy sauce is a great addition! I usually add a ton of salt to my sandwich because they are too bland for my taste, but the soy sauce made it very tasty! (I also added garlic salt instead of garlic powder, but I don't think it needed it).

Decadent Raspberry Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
These are amazing! I followed all ingredients and directions to a T (except my microwave must be higher powered because it only took one minute for each microwave step). These are so good, I love the thickness of them and the raspberry with the rich chocolate frosting is to die for!

Whit's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
Very good! I made w/out the jalapeno so maybe that's why I felt it was a little bland. I added salt which helped, then added some Tabasco to try to spice it up. But in the end, I thought it was very good! Thanks for the cheesy recipe!!! Love the cream cheese; it tasted great with the Mont. Jack!!

Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
LOVE this recipe, however it is a MUST that you use lemon cake mix and lemon pudding mix for BOTH puddings in this recipe. The batter is so light and fluffy and the cake turned out the same! It was moist and delicious and I don't usually like cake. The first time I made them into cupcakes and put a layer of the frosting in the middle, but this time I made two 9" round cakes, cut them both in half lengthwise, put two layers of the frosting and one layer of canned lemon pie filling (similar to lemon bars) in the middle! It was GREAT!

Lemon Gin Slush

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I used regular gin instead of lemon gin and added some lemon juice. I also used lemonade and limeade concentrate instead of lemon/orange. Delicious!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I was skeptical after tasting the batter and seeing how sweet it really was, but after baking and eating it I decided it's one of my favorite new recipes! I thought it was very moist and perfect with or without butter on it. The only thing I changed was that I baked it in a large loaf pan for 40-50 minutes and covered it for the last 10-15 minutes to prevent it from over-browning.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
Thanks for the great recipe! I followed the advice of a few of the reviewers who suggested adding half brown sugar and half white sugar instead of 3 full cups of white sugar, however next time I will try it the original way. I think both will be delicious! Very moist and fudgy!!!

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
Ok, I have made this recipe without the powdered creamer idea. I usually use milk and boil the tea in a small saucepan with a cinnamon stick. I usually add some vanilla and use half sugar half honey to sweeten. The first review says cardamom is an expensive spice and to grind it yourself, but they sell it already ground and it's no more expensive than any other spice in the spice aisle of the grocery store. I also use less cardamom than what is usually called for because it is over powering and has a slight after taste. Anyway, sorry I am rating without following this recipe to a T, but I am very excited to try with the milk powder and two kinds of powdered creamer!!

Best Football Dip Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I usually use half Italian sausage, half hamburger, but have never thought of adding cream cheese! Thanks for the recipe!

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Oh SO rich, I've also made this adding NOT ONLY the brownies, but broken up soft chocolate chip cookies TOO...mmm. My mom and I wondered if, instead of chocolate, the new Jello brand pumpkin spice pudding would make a good fall dessert such as this, maybe with Nilla wafers or graham crackers instead of brownies??? :)

Best Ever Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Love these!!!! Don't be worried about the measurements, this has always turned out great for me! This frosting recipe is thick so it's harder to spread, double the recipe for delicious, thick frosting!

Doggie Treats II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I am making these right now, and my dog has been at my feet since I started. She loves the dough, so far, and I know she is going to love the finished product. I cut the pieces into smaller squares with a pizza cutter because I don't have a dog-bone cookie cutter yet. I am glad I came across the recipe because I had all of the ingredients on-hand and am sick of buying over-priced treats at the store. I also love the idea you gave of giving these as a gift with a cookie cutter!!!

Overnight Bubble Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I got this recipe from Pampered Chef about 15 years ago, it's my all time favorite breakfast recipe and I make it all of the time because it's so easy.

French Silk Chocolate Pie I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I put a layer of homemade, sweetened whipped cream on top and garnished with chocolate shavings. The taste and texture was PERFECT. The only problem I have is with the reviewers. I don't understand what the big deal is about the amount yielded in the original recipe if you are using a regular-depth 8 or 9 inch pie dish. I usually read reviews prior to making a recipe and usually find them helpful, but this time I'm disappointed. I doubled the batch of filling due to the amount of complaints I read, and well, I could have piled on all of that filling to the point of an overflow...as another cook did according to a picture posted of this recipe, but why would I? It is already a very rich filling and to put THAT much in?! A "French Silk Pie" is supposed to have a generous layer of whipped cream on top and I'm sure that's what no one is doing (according to a lot of the pictures posted of this recipe). Luckily it was so good that my brother-in-law requested another pie the next day so the second pie did not go to waste. So WARNING: If you want more filling, try doing 1 1/2 of the recipe before you go doubling it.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
I agree with other reviews that this is a good start or base granola bar recipe. I liked it, but I thought the honey taste overpowered everything else. Sooo the next time I used light corn syrup instead of honey and it was great. I have tried this recipe substituting different dried fruits including dried cranberries, coconut, apples, or raisins, and I have even put a mixture of nuts including unsalted sesame seeds, slivered almonds, or walnuts. Also, I have added mini chocolate chips or drizzled white almond bark over the top when they come out of the oven. I also agree that the cook time is a little long, they do not need to be brown around the edges, that usually means the edge pieces are going to be crunchy while the middle pieces are more chewy; probably around 25-30 minutes is good. Oh and lastly, I don't always put cinnamon in them when it doesn't go with the other ingredients, and I always lessen the salt to 1/2 tsp! Hope everyone enjoys all of the variations you can make with this recipes!!!

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This is the same recipe I have always made...actually I think it is the same recipe that is on the back of the pudding box, but it is the only recipe I will ever use again. They are soft and moist, and to die for!!! I use french vanilla pudding and omit the nuts and usually only put half of the chocolate chips in. Coworkers, friends, and family always say they are the best cookies they've ever had. I usually make the cookies bigger and form them into smooth balls with my hands so they look perfect when they come out of the oven. Make sure you don't over cook them though; bake them just until the tops are just golden brown, and cool on a wire rack. Separate layers of cookies with waxed paper in a sealed container or they will stick together.

Never Enough Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
So I was making dinner for a friend who requested green bean casserole, which I usually HATE, so I found this recipe and made it for him...it was DELICIOUS; I should mention that I always double the green beans and soup, add garlic salt, pepper, and about 1/8 to 1/4 of a block of cream cheese along with the original amount of Velveeta, (the cream cheese is the secret ingredient that really makes this recipe amazing). I then mix some of the french fried onions throughout as well as top the casserole with them. Be sure to cover while baking to keep the onions from burning and then bake uncovered for ten or so minutes towards the end. My friend said that it was "better than his mom's green bean casserole," which would most likely be a HUGE compliment coming from anyone. :) Thank you for this recipe! Now my family and I will actually eat green bean casserole, but only when prepared like this!!!
