Hot Cross Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I have never had nor made a hot cross bun, but wanted to give these a try. I made it exactly as written, but halved the recipe and put in an 8x8 pan. These are almost like a want-to-be cinnamon roll. They were much better with some butter and most glaze. I'm not sure if i'll make them again, but it was good to finally taste one!

Karen's Cookie Dough Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I only rated this a 4 because i used my own brownie base so i could use an 8x8 pan, but we really enjoyed these! I def would put mini chips into the cookie dough batter next time. I let the chocolate chips slightly harden, then scored them in 1" squares, and then let them finish hardening. It made it pretty easy to cut. I had a slight problem with the cookie dough separating from the brownies, but this may have been because of the small size i cut them. These are really rich but very good if you like raw cookie dough!

Berry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
My husband loves strawberry muffins out of the pouch, and I have been trying to replicate them with a homemade recipe. Sadly, this was not it.

Mound Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
These were pretty good, but like others have said, i prefer the 7layer magic cookie bars. I almost doubled the amount of coconut and sweetened milk, and i think it was a good amount. I also just sprinkled the chocolate over the hot topping, placed back in the oven for 2 min, and then spread it out and it worked perfectly.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
I have always used seasoning on my pulled pork, and I have given up on that after trying this recipe! I used a shoulder roast, so there was no bone, and it turned out beautifully. I did add 1T of liquid smoke and generously coated the outside with salt, and actually ended up sprinkling some more after it was finished. This was far superior to my old method. It's simple, and delicious.

Strawberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
These were just ok for me. I have been looking for a perfect strawberry muffin for my hubby, and haven't found it yet. I used quick cook oats and they still had a pretty good texture. I also added 1 T of cornstarch to combat the juices of the strawberries.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This was my 1st meatball attempt, and I really liked using turkey instead of beef--much healthier. I halved the recipe and added 1/4 c of Parm cheese. I also made these into bite sized meatballs and ended up with about 25 for half of the recipe.

Funnel Cakes III

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I made this as written, and thought it was flavorless. The milk does need another 1/4 c or so to get the right consistency. I would double the salt, sugar, and add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. I halved the recipe and ended up with 4 medium sized cakes.

Cheese Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
These are exactly what they promise--cheese enchiladas. My husband and I both prefer them without onions, so i just used a sprinkle of onion powder over the cheese. I also used a premade enchilada sauce (i needed to get rid of) instead of the sauce, paste, and seasoning. I will agree that the cheese needs to be doubled considering these are plain cheese enchiladas! My first couple of enchiladas didn't work out, but i figured out a great method: place 2 tortillas between a pretty damped paper towel and microwave for 25-30 seconds on high. Put a T of sauce in the shell, fill with cheese and spices, then quickly roll up. (I tried to do 4 at a time, but they started cracking towards the end, so 2 is the magic number.) Once they're all filled, cover the enchiladas with sauce. I needed about 8-10 shells for half of the recipe in a lightly greased 8x8 pan with a layer of sauce in the bottom.

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I really enjoyed this recipe, even though i am not a big pepper fan. I skipped the chopped pepper on the inside and used a cheese tomato pasta sauce instead of diced tomatoes and paste. I also cooked the turkey with the onion and seasonings to give it more flavor. I added 1/2 of dry stuffing mix with great success, and really like the addition comparing the before and after.

Sour Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
The things i changed in this recipe was using margarine instead of crisco, adding 1/4c milk, 1/2 tsp salt, and they turned out excellent! Oh yeah, and liquid food gel to make them hot pink! I made mini cupcakes, so they only needed about 15 min to bake. Make sure to cream the sugar with the margarine very, very well, don't over mix the rest, and you will end up with a light, fluffly, and moist cupcake!

Sour Cream Fan Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I have made so many rolls and breads, and i think this is one of my new favorites. I was worried about the amount of sugar, but it wasn't overly sweet at all. I also sub margarine for butter with great success. These are so fluffy and reheated very well. I scaled the recipe to 8 and got a dozen rolls out of it. This is a keeper!

Scrumptious Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I knew this was going to be a quick and easy meal, not a gourmet one, but i was still pretty dissappointed in the flavor of this. I used cream of celery soup, which really added to it. I took anothers suggestion to add some broth to the mix, and it think it was overkill. It was a mushy stuffing rather than partly crispy.

Carrot Cake Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Searched for these on a whim today and was glad to find this recipe! Sorry for all of the changes, but I tried it, and then adjusted accordingly--I upped the amount of salt to 1 tsp, doubled the cinnamon and added 1/2 tsp of apple pie spice, and used all margarine instead of butter and shortening mix. I also omitted the pineapple and raisins (preference) and 2 1/2 x the carrots. I only made half of the icing, using cream instead of pineapple juice, and it was plenty for the amount of sandwiches. I would like to try subbing in some oats for part of the flour next time, so it's got a slightly different texture.

Chocolate Fudge Pops

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
This recipe is great if you don't want to have to wait for your cooked pudding to cool off before freezing. I made the pudding with 1 1/2 c (like the pie directions)of chocolate milk and folded in 1 c of cool whip topping and mini chips. I skipped the sugar because of the cool whip, and I didn't miss it at all! These were easy and my toddler has loved them!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
This is a variation of one of the top chocolate chip cookie recipes on this site, and it makes great chocolate cookies too! I added 3/4 tsp of salt, an extra 2 T of cocoa, and used a peanut butter and chocolate chip mix blend i found at the store. My hubby thought these were the best chocolate cookies I've made to date.

Super Easy Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
After I read the ingredients in other fruit dips, I decided to make a healthier alternative for my toddler and this was it! You can use whatever flavor of yogurt and it is great! I tried using pudding (made with 1/2 c less milk for firmness), but it was a little too sweet for my tastes. I will stick to this simple and somewhat healthy dip from now on!

Chocolate Cut Out Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
I was really weary of this recipe, because others had so many problems. With a few tweaks, this is great recipe for chocolate cut outs! I only used 2 eggs, added 2 T extra cocoa powder, and added 1/2 tsp salt. With any cut out recipe, you have to chill the dough properly in order to prevent stickiness. I used plain flour to roll them out, and it didn't affect the color or taste at all (instead of cocoa and sugar others suggested). I also decided to bake these at 375 for 7-8 minutes, like my other sugar cookie recipe. I loved the chocolate, tastes very close to a brownie type cookie. Will def keep as an alternate to regular sugar cookies!

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I really liked the idea of a not-so-sweet frosting, similair to the cream cheese, but without cream cheese. After researching, and finding this is the correct type to put on red velvet (according to some), I decided to try this one out. The flour and butter forms a "ball" in the middle of the saucepan when you stir it, it's not literally round. I waited until cooled and beat well, but mine was still a little strange looking. It tasted good, but had a really interesting texture. It was a nice change, but I'm not so sure it will replace my regular buttercream.

Chocolate Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
I was hoping for something greater with these ingredients combined, but it didn't wow me as others mentioned. I halved the recipe and put in an 8x8 pan. I used a sharp knife to trim the graham crackers to the right size which worked very well. I also opted for the french vanilla pudding and making the fudge topping (on the stove) another had suggested. This is easy to assemble and looks pretty, just wasn't awesome for me. I would not suggested freezing it, as it crystallizes the pudding layer. It was easier to cut, however, so maybe freezing, cutting, and then de-thawing would work out. I would also stick to the chocolate frosting recipe, because the topping that I made tasted just like i thought it would, undercooked fudge. It never sat up well, hence putting it in the freezer to prevent it running everywhere. I plan on trying this same techinque with chocolate graham crackers, cheese cake pudding, and maybe a white chocolate topping.
