Simple Orange Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
Refreshing flavor! I added a bit of butter to make it a bit more creamy, and put it into a ziploc bag to pipe it on cranberry orange scones (from "simple scones" recipe on this site). Tomorrow, I'll be serving these to my daughter at breakfast...I already know she's gonna flip for 'em! :-)

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
SO simple! I can't believe how easy these were! And the whole family LOVED them. I asked how many stars they thought the recipe should receive out of five, and they said 6! lol I followed the recipe to the letter, except I cut the butter into tiny squares. I'm definitely making these weekly!

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Best of two icings I've made to date! Super simple, too. I added two tbsp of milk for consistancy and another teaspoon of vanilla for stronger flavor, and I thought it was fabulous! My mother-in-law said it was a bit sweet, but my hubby and I agree that it's perfect. I still may reduce sugar next time, especially if it were a carrot or fruit-based cake.

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
FIRST time baking a cake from scratch! What an enjoyable experience, from bowl to mouth. I'm tempted to never make a chocolate cake from any other recipe but this one. The fam LOVED it! It was very rich, just the way we like it! ;-)

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
My 5 year old said, "this is the BEST meat EVER! You have to cook it this way ALL the time." :-) So, it's a hit in the Newcomb household! I made some small adjustments like I used chicken broth instead of beef bouillon and eyeballed it, about 16 oz. of water, and some onion. Everything else was the same. Thanks for this amazing and simple recipe!

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
My first go at making buttercream frosting, and boy am I pleased! I followed the recipe exactly, to make my version of oatmeal cream pies. My hubby is normally not a huge fan of buttercream, but he couldn't stop eating this kind! I'm excited to add other flavorings in the future!

Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Great flavor and super simple! I used unsweetened apple sauce instead of the juice, about a lil less than a tbsp of rosemary (it can overpower dishes easily, in my opinion) and about 2 tbsp of dijon. Perfect!

Snowballs II

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I made these for my daughter's classmates and teachers for Christmas, and got rave reviews! I added crushed peppermint to the dough and rolled it in pure peppermint candy after rolling it in a powdered sugar/peppermint mixture. I'm in LOVE with these because they're buttery AND minty! Two of my favorite flaves!

French Beef Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
Mad it exactly how it said except skipped the mustard because when I tasted it at the end, I couldn't imagine risking ruining it with mustard. SO satisfied!! My hubby absolutely loved it!

Excellent Broccoli Cheese Soup

Warm Heart Stew

My hubby and mother-in-law LOVED this. I thought it was tasty, but waaay too salty. I'm kinda picky about salt, though.

Mexican Mole Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This recipe probably would have been milder but just as good as the tweaked one I made. And lemme say, it was AWESOME! I doubled the onion, the cocoa, and cumin, used 6 cloves minced garlic, and tomato sauce instead of soup. Oh and I used a can of diced tomatoes with green Chiles already in it. I spread half the sauce on the bottom of a baking dish, put 12 skinless boned chicken thighs on top, sprinkled salt and pepper on top and saved the other half of the sauce to spoon on the chicken individually. Oh yeah, I cooked it at 400 degrees until the temp was right on the thermometer...about 40-45 minutes. PERFECT!!!

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
THE BEST EVER! I blended the sour cream, parm (no romano), garlic, cream (used milk other times), and the artichokes in a blender; I eyeball the milk/cream to make it blend a bit easier, but it still comes out much thicker than restaurant style. I squeeze out the water from the spinach by wrapping it in a paper towel. This recipe makes a lot, but does not last long in my household!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I've made this at least a half dozen times, and a little different each time and it always comes out great. First time, I followed recipe except I used beef broth. Other times, I've used chicken broth and added minced garlic and onions. I've also added various veggies since it makes a lot of an awesome gravy. Plus, I always sear it first with pepper and salt, like others siggest.

Sweet Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
One of my faves! I cooked the bacon a bit so it would be crispier. My mother-in-law didn't like it the first time I cooked it because she said the bacon was raw, despite me cooking it waaay longer than the recipe suggested, which made the green beans wither. So when I cooked the bacon before-hand for about 5 minutes, it came out better. Plus, I used olive oil instead of butter. YUM!

Garlic Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
My hubby LOVED these. They were a little heavy on the bread crumbs for me, but he insisted I make them again after they were all gone. :) So I will give them five stars for him.
