Quick'n'Easy Weeknight Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2015
We had this for dinner last night and we really enjoyed it. I halved the recipe, which wasn't the easiest thing to do since it meant I had to split up the tomatoes and the tomato sauce. I hesitated over adding the water, ended up doing it, and had to use some cornstarch to thicken it up. Other than that though, it was fantastic, easy, and we'll be adding it to our dinner rotation!

Mint Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2014
Made these for a Christmas cookie exchange and they were amazing! Instead of confectioners sugar, I topped each one with an unwrapped andes mint immediately after pulling them out of the oven, and after 5 minutes I smeared the melted chocolate over the top of the cookie, swirling the white mint part. DELICIOUS.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
This was amazing!!! I followed another cook's advice and added vanilla and butter instead of shortening. It was so delicious it was hard for me to get the batter into the oven!!! I baked one batch and froze the rest so I can have them at a moment's notice. HURRAY!

Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I made this for a co-worker's birthday (she has a wheat sensitivity) and it was a TOTAL hit. I agree that the consistency is more of a brownie, which was completely ok with me as I wasn't looking for antyhing overly formal. I made it into cupcakes, lining each tin with parchment paper, then greasing and cocoa-ing the edges. It was time consuming, but I didn't lose a single cake when I pulled them out of the tin. The recipe itself is an absolute BREEZE. I used the microwave to melt the chocolate, then stirred in the rest and I was done! Topped with "Hard Chocolate Glaze". This recipe is fabulous!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
These are amazingly easy and delicious. I made them for brunch with friends last weekend, and it reminded me of Christmas. Like the recipe-submitter, these were also a Christmas morning tradition in my house growing up. Maybe they will be again!

Herbed New Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
These were amazing, and are very forgiving when it comes to tweaks. My husband got red potatoes, not new potatoes, and they were cooked too long so when we tossed them with the butter/sour cream mixture they fell apart and became a cross between mashed and regular potatoes. However, they were still DELICIOUS and WONDERFUL. WIN!!!

Goat Cheese and Arugula over Penne

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Really loved the goat cheese in this. Roasted the tomatoes with garlic before using them, and had it with rosemary/olive oil bread. Delicious!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
THIS WAS AMAZING. I found it while looking for low calorie dinners, and this was perfect. This chicken, the Best Spanish Rice recipe, and tortilla chips makes for a meal less than 500 calories! Rock!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
This wasn't awful, but it didn't wow me either. I'm new to fried rice, so I think because the recipe said "Add rice, stir, heat through" that I didn't "Fry" the rice sufficiently. I'm still giving it a 3 because if that was the case, the instructions weren't clear. Still, it was easy and good, just not what I expected by the recipe title "fried rice".

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
I followed the recipe for this EXACTLY and my fudge turned out horribly. It got hard and crumbly and grease seeped up out of it. I tried to sop it up with a paper towel, but after I put it in the fridge more seeped up and congealed. I had thought with 1371 reviews and 4.5 stars I would be fine, but the problem is mine: I should have read more of the bad reviews to dodge potential issues. I think the major problem was that I added the chocolate chips all at once, and tried to stir by hand instead of using my stand mixer. Those of you who made this and made it work, I salute you. After this recipe bombed, I had enough marshmallow creme to try again with the recipe on the side of the jar, and it turned out perfectly. Sorry, Aunt Teen. I think your fudge recipe just isn't for me.

Delicious! Followed the recipe exactly, except that I omitted the ginger (can't stand the stuff). Loved the yogurt garnish as well!

Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
I had to sub salsa for enchilada sauce (forgot to pick up sauce!) and you couldn't even tell. I put the leftover filling over the top of the enchiladas and omitted the olives. This was easy and delicious!

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
This was excellent (and RICH!) I used fresh baby spinach (Wilted in the pan I fried the bacon in) and used feta instead of blue cheese (it was what i had on hand). I also didn't fry it before baking, and I seasoned the outside of the chicken with garlic powder and seasoning salt. Delicious!!!

Peach Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
Delicious! I used two bags of frozen peaches (run under water beforehand to thaw, I didn't know if you could just bake them frozen but I didn't want to risk it). I also used half brown sugar, half white, and threw in a tbsp of cornstarch. And now that I think about it, I forgot the butter completely! But it was delicious, didn't notice the lack at all!

Harvest Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
Delicious!!! I took this to dinner with friends and it was a hit. My changes: left out the tomatoes (we don't care for them); used a bag of Spring Mix salad instead of the spinach, I didn't toast the walnuts (didn't notice anything amiss). I also used seedless jam (all I had onhand) and olive oil instead of walnut oil. THIS WAS WONDERFUL!!!
