Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2014
This recipe makes a delicious cookie, slightly crisp on the outside, yet soft and chewy on the inside. I made the recipe as written, with the exception of following the instruction in the original recipe notes, and used 1/4 cup regular crisco, and 1/4 cup butter. The cookies were not too flat as some other reviews said, and did not need more flour or the addition of baking powder. I think adding more flour would change the texture and taste of the cookie and I would not recommend it. I also did not chill the dough before baking. The recipe states it makes 12 cookies, but that would be 12 very large cookies. Mine were a pretty standard size, I measured them after baking at 2 1/2 to 3" across, and I got 20 cookies from one original recipe. The cookies took 10 minutes to cook to a light golden brown. This is an excellent addition to my recipe box, great when you don't need a big recipe, and a subtle, yet tasty alternative to the standard chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Dirt Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
This is a great recipe. We have made it many times, and if you want to you can change it according to your tastes by using different flavors of pudding, and different flavors of cookies. We always use light cool whip and lite cream cheese and you can't tell one bit of difference. Also, we skip the powdered sugar. It just doesn't need it. A deep glass bowl looks the best to make it in, but a glass 9 X 13 pan is good too. The trouble with using a flowerpot is that you can't see through it which is really a big part of the appeal.

Easy Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
This recipe is a keeper! Easy and so delicious! I did add about 1 cup of oatmeal to the topping, and I used a cinnamon blend that has nutmeg in it. If you add nutmeg on its own, just a pinch or two is fine. If you like your topping with the oatmeal in it like I do, also add about 2 Tbsp. more butter to make up for the extra dry ingredient in the topping. The apples bake down, so if you like a thicker layer of apples, use one or two more. Using yellow cake mix also works just the same as white. My whole family LOVES this recipe. You will too.

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
This was the first time I made biscotti, and they turned out great. I love hazelnuts, but in this recipe, 1 cup is a lot of nuts. I thought they were a bit overwhelming. Next time I will put in only 1/2 to 3/4 cup at the most. The recipe didn't specify, so I chopped the hazelnuts. I also added 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips. For me, this made them perfect.

Elisa's Famous Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
I have made recipes similar to this one(using marshmallow fluff and evaporated milk) many times. This one was a huge disappointment. First, there is too much milk in this recipe, causing the fudge to not set up properly. Another recipe I have that makes a 9 x 13 pan also uses 2/3 cup milk. This recipe only makes an 8 inch square pan. Secondly, there is not enough chocolate and or butterscotch chips to give the fudge flavor. The marshmallow creme dominates, and while it is fluffy, the result is fudge that is too creamy, almost to the point of being sticky. The fudge is a very whitish brown, and has little chocolate flavor. I will not make this fudge again.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
A good finger food when you want to put out something sweet along with traditional appetizers. If you like chocolate chip cheesecake, this recipe is for you. This recipe works best when made with real butter, not margarine. The butter firms up much better.

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
For a great variation, I prefer to skip the dry roasted peanuts and add slivered almonds and dried cranberries (Craisins). A wonderful hostess or teacher gift for the holidays!

Sue's Killer Martini

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
This is a delicious martini. I would skip the dash of grenadine though as it is already a very sweet drink. Also, the pineapple juice and melon liqueur alone make a nicer color. For a different twist, substitute the regular vodka for coconut rum. So tasty and tropical!

Peanut Butter Shoestring Haystacks

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2005
This makes for an easy and good cookie, but I prefer to used canned chow mein noodles instead of the shoestring potatoes. The shoestring potatoes are much more salty and greasy. The chow mein noodles add the right crunch and taste better with the chips and peanut butter. Also try adding peanuts or other nuts to them. I also don't add the oil. It just isn't necessary. The chips melt fine and the peanut butter adds plenty of oil.

Almond Crescent Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2005
These almond rolls are fantastic! I took them to a neighborhood coffee, and they were a huge hit. I didn't use the butter, nuts and almond extract as a filling, instead I spread Solo brand almond filling on each rectangle, and then rolled them up. Also, I sliced each rectangle into 6 rolls. (for a total of 24 rolls made) I would think slicing them into only 3 per roll would make them too big for me. I prefer a smaller roll since they are quite rich. Watch the baking time. By making them smaller, they took less time to bake. Make sure to turn the pans over RIGHT AWAY when taking them out of the oven. The brown sugar mixture hardens quickly if you don't and it will be difficult to get out them out of the pan. After they were baked, I sprinkled the sliced toasted almond on top of the glaze. They looked really pretty, and were so tasty! You will love them.

Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
Overall, for taste this dish is fantastic. A wonderful nutty, crunchy complex blend of flavors. I loved the carmelized onions and the mushrooms the best. However, that said, this recipe takes a lot of work! I would make it for a special occasion, but it is just too time consuming for a regular meal at home. I also would recommend using a store blend of rice and preparing it according to the package directions. I used President's Choice Royal Blend on the advice of a previous review, and it was perfect. I also used fresh, not dried cranberries and that turned out fine too. A great recipe, just make sure you have the time to prepare it.

Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2004
This recipe tasted OK, but was incredibly messy to make. It is hard to wrap slimy bacon around a slippery pepper, and make sure it stays in place. When cooking them, the main problem was keeping them in the broiler long enough to get the bacon to crisp up, without all of the cheese melting and running out. For the second batch, we precooked the bacon about halfway, but this only helped slightly. Overall, I would not recommend this recipe. It was just not worth the mess for the mediocre results.

Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2003
This is an easy, quick and tasty recipe. Try adding 1 - 2 Tbsp. of Amaretto to the marshmallow and cream cheese mixture. It adds a light and delicious flavor! Also, this mixture makes a great fruit dip on its own, especially when served with strawberries.

Rich Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2003
These bars are unbelievably delicious! A blend of short-bread like crust, with an unbeatable combination of chocolate and toffee bits in the topping. Personally, I like the taste of toffee with milk chocolate rather than regular semi-sweet, so I have used either milk chocolate chips, or else I "chunk up" a large bar of milk chocolate. Also, making these with fat-free sweetened condensed milk does not change the taste one bit. My family doesn't like nuts, so I leave them out. TRY THEM! They are fabulous!

Orange Brunch Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2003
These muffins were just OK. As I suspected it might, the baking mix (I used Bisquick) makes a pretty heavy muffin. The batter was REALLY thick, heavy, and sticky making it hard to fill the muffin cups. The cooked texture of the muffins is more like a biscuit than a cake. The flavor is light, even though I used a 6 oz. container of orange yogurt rather than plain. Overall, they were good for breakfast, but I may not make them often. If you aren't looking for a really fruity flavor, and don't mind a heavy, basic muffin, they are OK.

Chow Mein Noodle Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2003
This is truly an EASY, QUICK, and very tasty recipe. A hit with adults and kids alike. I prefer to make mine with 1/2 semi-sweet chocolate chips, and 1/2 butterscotch chips, rather than just the butterscotch. Try this combination next time for a really delicious sweet/salty/crunchy cookie!

Lemon Chicken III

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2002
Overall, the flavor of this dish was good. But it was a messy dish to make and didn't turn out exactly like I think it was supposed to. First, I marinated the meat only about an hour, and with only about a cup of lemon juice diluted with 1/2 cup of water. It was plenty. I can't imagine marinating it for a full day in 2 cups of full strength lemon juice! When I fried the chicken, alot of the flour coating didn't stick to the chicken, although it was throughly browned. I just transferred the scraps of coating from the frying pan to the baking pan for flavor. When baking it, the brown sugar added an interesting flavor, but I would use less next time, it was too sweet. I do think the baking made the chicken more tender. Again, overall tasty, but needs several revisions.

Gooey Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2002
My entire family loves these cookies. Light and tasty! They are a quick and easy cookie for when you are pressed for time. I also bake them for a neighbor who is a little particular about what she likes (she usually buys from a bakery), and her family loves them too. Try them!

Wienie Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2002
This sauce was easy and tasty. The only change I made was to use half ketchup and half barbeque sauce for a little more flavor. I have used smokie links along with hot dogs too, and they were also a big hit!
