Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
This was pretty good - I kept the ingredients the same just took out the tomatoes. I think if I used a more expensive balsamic it would've been better because the "bite" wasn't as strong as I was thinking it would be. I'll try it again and see... overall a good recipe for quick/easy.

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
After reading the reviews I decided to make this twice- once as written, and once modified. The way it's written (as others have said) is WAY too sweet, even for me and I love sugar lol. It was also too watery. So, I cut the water and sugar to 1/4c each and used Tara's suggestion to put the tea cloth under the lid (reduces recycled moisture) and this came out PERFECT!

Chef John's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I made two pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving this year - this one and one that uses evaporated milk mixed w/ sugar and HANDS DOWN this is better. I absolutely love this recipe and will be adding it to the book :)

Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
My review based on the following modifications: Butter (not margarine) & 1/2 tsp salt. I really like the texture of the cookies, but the amount of butter in the recipe makes them taste a little like corn bread rather than a sugar cookie (maybe increase the vanilla?) - Also, as others have said you cannot roll these out unless you've refrigerated the dough for at least an hour. Overall, this is a good base recipe for cookies you intend to flavor (orange, cinnamon, etc) but not as an actual, stand-alone sugar cookie.

Party Lemonade

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
I absolutely LOVE this recipe! If it doesn't instantly disappear make sure you take out the lemons before storing it in the refrigerator, otherwise it will get extremely bitter.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
***I HATE BEER*** but I tried this anyway and loved it!! I made the following modifications: 6oz can tomato paste w/ 2oz water instead of 8oz tomato sauce b/c that's what I had - homemade taco seasoning instead of a packet (any of the ones on this site are good, just make SURE you watch how much red pepper goes in b/c that's where the heat comes from) - Rotel diced tomatoes *lime juice & cilantro* instead of *green chilies* and for the beer I used Dos Equis (one 12oz bottle). I cooked on high for 4hrs. It was perfect... my kids (6 & 3) ate two helpings!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
I tried this recipe exactly as written and it was just a TOUCH too sweet (I like sugar!) but still tasted excellent. I made it a second time and used ONLY homemade mustard-based bbq sauce (which filled a 12oz bottle) with a sprinkle of worcestershire and it was the perfect taste, texture and quantity of liquid. Great recipe, thanks!

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
This recipe was good, but the strawberry taste was too "artificial" I think b/c of the jello. I used sugar-free jello and it turned out much better!

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
This cake, if prepared as directed is WONDERFUL. If it seems dry it's b/c you are over cooking it- this type of cake has the ability to go from perfect to over-done in about 3 minutes!!

Key Lime Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This cake was overall really good. I followed the directions exactly. The only criticism I have is that the cake itself was just a bit too sweet (And I love sweets!) so perhaps using sugar-free jello would help? I'll try again and see...

Strawberry Margarita Cake

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
The most common statement is that this cake tastes like BOXED Strawberry Cake.... YES, it does but WITHOUT the "artificial" after taste. It is still very good! I followed the recipe EXACTLY for the cake, and used my own "Lime Zest" frosting instead of whipped cream and it turned out wonderful!

Pumpkin Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
This recipe tastes awesome! I am a huge "pumpkin" fan so this was a nice mix for me - HOWEVER, the pumpkin portion tasted more like pumpkin pie than brownie so just be aware of that. Very good taste, though!

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
The consistency is perfect for decorating as long as you beat it long enough... if you follow the recipe (exactly) you shouldn't have any problems. I haven't made the chocolate yet, just the vanilla. The taste is also really good! I highly recommend this for a quick, easy & tasty frosting. (Note: The quantity is very small, only enough for about 12x muffins or so)
