No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
My husband loved these. They taste basically like a fancy no bake cookie, much prettier than those piles. Drizzled the top with melted chips for even nicer presentation. Next time i'll line the pan with saran wrap to make cutting them and getting them out of the pan easier.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
When i mixed this up, it had a really strange texture--thick and greasy. I was worried that it would show through after baking, and i was right. It has a strange consistency, that I wasn't a fan of. Cooked at a lower temp than directed and it was pretty crispy on the bottom. My family thought it was good, but not great. Would cut the veg oil down and add milk like other reviewers suggested.

Olive Oil Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
This was a pretty good bread, but not the best i've had. I spritzed the loaf with water while it was cooking to prevent the crust from burning and ended up covering it with foil for the last 10 min or so. I would brush this with butter and garlic salt or some extra spice next time. I was worried about adding 1 tsp salt, but it wasn't too salty at all.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
This was a nice change from my normal marinade. I shredded the chicken, and used cilantro instead of oregano for the mexican flavor. It usually only takes about 10-12 min when i cook chicken on the stove, 20 seemed excessive. Next time, i would double the marinade for a little more flavor.

Garlic Herb Skillet Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I left the skin on my potato, and just used one large one (i didn't want more than one layer of potatoes in the bottom). My husband loved these.

Beignets

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I agree with the others that said this was a bland dough. I even added some vanilla extract into the mix. If i tried these again, i would add more sugar, salt, and butter (instead of shortening). This makes a ton of dough; I halved the batch and will end up making around 30-40 of them. Make sure they are rolled out relatively thin, they poof up quite a bit. My husband thought they were better with maple syrup on top of the powdered sugar on them.

Spring Strawberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I was skeptical about a salad with strawberries, but i'm thrilled i gave this a try. It does make a ton of dressing, i will half the amount next time, and it quickly seperates, so mix and pour fast. I also added some sliced almonds to the mix. Will def make again! Refreshing and lovely summer/spring salad.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I had high expectations for this recipe, and it failed to deliver. My husband thought it tasted like a poorly put together cinnamon roll, and i realized it's pretty much the same ingredients, just a differnet presentation. If i made it again, i would add another package of cream cheese, cut the amount of sugar in half, and not eat it warm. It was much better after it had been refrigerated. I made it for a dinner party, and it failed to impress.

Teddy Bear Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Keep in mind these are premade biscuits, and what a fun and easy way to make a toddler happy! My 2 year old loved these. I put them together and made sure they were secure, flipped them over, and brushed with butter instead of egg, then coated with the sugar mix. I also used raisins instead of chips because i didn't have the mini ones and it was just as cute.

Delicious Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
I thought this was pretty good, but it didn't pass the toddler test like my other rice casserole. I doubled the rice, and glad I did, I really think it needs it. I also added a cup of cheddar cheese after i tasted it, because i thought it was relatively bland. I also left out the butter in the topping, and i thought that it was a nice alteration. If i make again, I would try cream of celery soup, like my other recipe, for more flavor.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
Great cookie. I couldn't help but use melted butter instead of veg oil, and they tasted great. I also greased my baking sheet, and if i hadn't, they would have been stuck to the sheet. I only refrigerated these for about 2 hours, and used a cookie scoop to measure and dropped them right in the powdered sugar. Once they were in the sugar, they were no problem to roll. These are a little tricky to tell if they're done, and i ended up cooking them for the full 12 min. They remind me of the devil food cookies you can buy at a store. Very pretty and a nice new addition.

Soft Oat Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
These were pretty good rolls, but i think the recipe needs a few tweaks. I added 1 tsp of salt, and i really think it needed that. I only let it rise once, but next time, i think i'll let it rise twice and see what the results look like. They didn't rise very much in almost 3 hours, and ended up having more of a biscuit look. I turned my oven to 385 for 5 min, after the intial 20, because they weren't browning like they should have. Taste wise i thought there were great. I made the honey cinnamon butter from the site and my husband ate 3!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This was different than i expected, but the meat came out tender and had a pretty good flavor. I used 1/2 T more cornstarch to thicken up the sauce and sliced the green pepper to make them look pretty. If you like a firmer pepper, hold off till the last 30 min; I only cooked the peppers for about 35 min on low, and they were more than done. I also threw in 2 cloves of smashed garlic. Served with white rice. Good, just not the pepper steak i was looking for.

B and L's Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This was my first ever smoothie and it was so easy to make! i used low-fat vanilla yogurt and only 1 tsp of vanilla. This is a great base and you can definately add anything you want: bananas, kiwis, watermelon...etc. I think next time i will freeze the strawberries to help give it a more icy texture.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
After reading some of the other reviews, i decided to use granny smith apples to help cut the sweetness. I added almost 1 cup of chopped apple (half of the granny smith), an extra T of butter to the sugar and cooked for 25 min. I also only used 1 T of sugar and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon for the topping. These are delicious and with the granny smiths, they were just right as far as sweet! (I would decrease the sugar if you aren't using a tart apple.) Nice and moist with just enough cinnamon and crunch. Will def add to my recipes!

Watermelon Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
These take some time to make, but what a cute cookie to make! (This would be great for kids on a rainy day.) I didn't have the mini chips and i cut my big ones in half like another reviewer, and that is just plain crazy! next time i'll wait til i go to the store! I added about 8 drops of food coloring to the red batter, rolled them out using powdered sugar instead of flour, and baked them for just over 8 min. Take them off the sheet quickly, the ones i let set for a couple of minutes i almost didn't get off the pan. I wanted a little more finished look so i piped a white line (the rine) using a ziploc baggie snipped at the end after I frosted with the green. A made the white (about 1 c powdered sugar and T water) almost too thick to pipe so it wouldn't run over the green. Next time i think i might add some more sugar to the dough (1/4 c), as it wasn't quite sweet enough for my sugar cookie preference. Picture perfect summer cookies! EDIT: these cookies ended up being terribly crumbly. They were perfectly cooked but they just didn't keep well. Would use a different sugar cookie base next time.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
this was my 1st squash casserole to make and i will def be making again. I only used a few T of onion, as i don't like a strong taste, and it was still very flavorful. My husband has never eaten squash before this, and he finished his serving (he's picky picky). I think i will undercook the squash just a lil less next time so it's a little more firm in the casserole, but that was my only suggestion!

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
I have never tasted peanut butter fudge before, but based on that, this is super sweet. I cut down the powdered sugar and upped the peanut butter as well. It tasted like a big hunk of peanut butter icing to me, and didn't ever really harden up as much as i would have liked. Would be great on cake, but won't be making to eat plain again.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
I love this recipe and you can adapt it to so many variations. I line my baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray for easier clean up, and only cook it for 30 min on 375. I always use half mayo and half milk because it's easier to dip. I have tried bread crumbs, saltines, cornflakes, and crackers--all successfully. I also used a sleeve of buttery round crackers this time and it was excellent. Next time i'm planning on drizzling with some honey.
