Baked Honey Nut Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
What a nice change from the usual chicken. I made this for a dinner party and used walnuts and saltines instead of bread crumbs. I also used a tenderorizor and split the breasts which was a great serving size. Drizzled with a little honey before serving for some extra sweet for honey lovers! These were a big success!

Mississippi Mud Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I can't believe this recipe isn't more popular! My mom has had this recipe forever, and it's wonderful! I added 1/2 tsp salt to the batter and used a 1/2 c cocoa in it (i like more chocolate flavor). The marshmallow creme in the small jar is 7 oz, so you'll have to buy 2 for the whole recipe. I baked this at 325 for exactly 35 minutes, and it came out perfect. This is one of my hubby's favorite, and it never dissappoints! Chocolately, marshmallowy, and sweet.

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!

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
These were unbelievable straight from the oven, (weren't as good after they cooled)! I reheated them in the microwave for 10 sec to warm them back up to goodness before eating. They taste a bit like a turtle brownie, and can't imagine making these without nuts on top as it was an excellent texture contrast. I added 1/4 c more flour, 1/4 c more cocoa powder, and 1/2 tsp salt (most cookies have some in them). I used plain caramels. I didn't use any of the nuts in the actual batter, for fear of getting the dough smooth around the candy. I used greased baking sheets, but parchment paper would be better. I didn't have much problem with the bottoms coming out, but you can easily remove the paper for cooling. Damp hands helped with the rolling part. I preferred using room temp dough, the cold dough had to thaw in order to spread anyway. I made a ball, stuck the caramel in, and worked it up around the candy. If you like a fluffier cookie, put these in the fridge for 15 min or so before baking. I let these cool 5 min, then transferred to cooling racks, and some of them bottomed out. I would leave on the baking sheet or parchment until completely cool. Mine needed almost 10 minutes to get firm enough bottoms so that they would hold up. Hope this helps!

Pumpkin Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
My husband introduced me to pumpkin nut bread, and it's one of my favorites. I only use 2 c sugar, 3 c flour, 1 tsp salt, cloves instead of allspice (and half the amt of cloves and nutmeg), add in 1 T vanilla and double the amount of nuts. I also had to sub margaine today for oil, because i was out and I couldn't tell a difference. It makes 2 dozen cupcakes, that I cooked at 350 for 20 min (until toothpick comes out clean).

Summer Squash Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
I was looking for a copy cat of a frozen dinner my parents used to buy, and this was it. I made the "quick alfredo sauce" from this site and it was great, and can be scaled to the right amount. This is really good with red peppers as well. My only 2 negatives were the amount of dishes this uses and i added an extra 1/2 c of alfredo, and i honestly think it needed about another 1/4 c more. This recipe made well over 6 servings for our family, around 10 serv at least. I will def be keeping this recipe on hand this summer!

Pigs in a Blanket

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I needed a quick easy meal for my toddler, and this was it! I cut hers in half length and width wise, and only needed one biscuit to cover. I used a rolling pin to roll out the dough, making it easier to stretch around the dogs. For a full size dog, it took 2 biscuits. Next time, if using cheese, I would put them on aluminum foil for ease of clean up. These pigs in a blanket tasted much better than the ones I remember, thanks for a great, quick meal idea!

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
Once again another chocolate chip recipe from the bag, i just used it for baking time/temp. I halved the recipe and used an 8" pan, and lowered the temp to 335 until the center tested done, so it wouldn't burn the edges. Next time, I would take 1/2 c of batter or so out before putting in the pan.

Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
My husband had these at work and loved them, so naturally I'm looking up the recipe and making them days later...I was pleasantly surprised by these! I used an 8x8 pan, because i wanted them thicker, lined and spray for easier removal and cutting. I actually poured the milk over the top of the coconut, and it sank through while it was cooking. My only problem was getting it to set up, so i eventually put it in the fridge. Thanks for an easy, taste cookie bar!

Grandma's Hash Browns

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
This is a perfect simple recipe for hash browns. I think these are right on par with the ones you get at restaurants. Be careful not to overcook the potatoes, they are nearly impossible to shred if they are too tender. I also just stuck them in the freezer for 30 min, instead of overnight and they were great! I didn't have much luck getting them to stick together, but I plan on making these again and again. I think next time I will try cooking these in the oven to make them extra crispy! (will update after I try) UPDATE: Just tried baking these tonight...and HUGE success! I greased a baking sheet, mixed about 1T flour in with the potatoes, and shaped them into round patties. They cooked on 435 for 30 min (check for browness on bottom), then another 15 after flipping. They were crispy and delicious! Will bake these again and again--made our breakfast!

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
I really liked the broccoli this way, minus the lemon juice. I have a toddler so I cooked mine until they were pretty tender, but you can adjust cooking time to your preferred level of tenderness. Some people were complaining about the salt, but I didn't think it was too salty, maybe because i didn't use the lemon. You can also throw in some cauliflower with this and it also oven roasts pretty well.

Chocolate Covered Caramels

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
I found a can of condensed milk in the fridge, looked up some recipes, and stumbled upon this one. I was always scared of making homemade caramels, but this was a complete success! I halved the recipe, and couldn't be more happy that I did...as I ended up with tons and tons of caramels. Next time, I will still use the 8x8 pan for half the recipe or a 9x13 for a whole batch, as i think they were too thick in a smaller pan. I used veg oil instead of butter to melt my semi-sweet chocolate, and I ended up using a whole 2 c bag on half of the batch. Be careful not to heat this too quickly, or it will be grainy. I also make the mistake of trying to cut these too early, and made a huge mess. I ended up shaping the warm pieces into circles, dipped them, and drizzled with some more chocolate which turned out pretty cute. My husband was speechless when he came home and tried one...and that says a lot!

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
First of all, I cheated this recipe because i had a can of apple pie filling (chopped) i needed to clean out of the cabinet. I used the big can (about 17oz) for 2 dozen of these. I took some of the suggestions, and used softened butter in the flour/oat shell. This was great, except that I ended up needing to make another 1/4 recipe of the topping to have any to cover the filling. I used exactly 1 T of crust per tart, 1 tsp of chopped up apple pie filling, and then about 1 tsp of filling on top of that. I cooked mine for about 18 min, but they really needed a few extra min because they weren't quite as crispy as I'd hoped. These were cute, great reheated or not, and my mom at a bunch topped with vanilla ice cream. This is a cute and delicious recipe!

My Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I used red potatoes I had on hand and left the skins on. I pre-melted the butter, spread over potatoes, and then seasoned. I cooked them at 375 (i had some chicken in the oven too) and it worked just great. These were simple, easy, and tasted great. My husband loved them!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
This was my first ever red velvet cupcake...and it was great! I made mini cupcakes, so I scaled my recipe down to 5 servings and ended up with about 16 mini cupcakes. I also used a food coloring gel instead of liquid, stirring it into the milk until the color was a nice rich red. The things i changed about this recipe were to use melted margarine instead of butter, only 2T of cocoa, and I had to reduce the baking time to 13-14 min for my mini sized cupcakes. They turned out beautifully! I melted 1/4 c of chocolate chips, put in a ziploc bag, cut off a small tip, and squeezed heart shaped designs onto wax paper and then froze. These made the cutest toppers for valentine's day!!
