S'more Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2004
These were awesome! I had some people over and made them for dessert, and they were a huge hit. I halved the recipe since there were only four of us, but I barely had any left after they left! I'd DEFINITELY wait longer to put the toppings on and crumble the graham crackers smaller. Also, I had problems testing if the brownies were done. Don't know how to fix that one...thanks for an awesome idea!

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
We made this candy for Christmas and it was a HUGE hit! I cut the amount of powdered sugar like the other reviewers said to do, and it worked perfectly. I made balls that were about 1/2 inch across, and dipped them in the chocolate mixture. I've been dipping chocolate for years, but I never tried mixing a bit of shortening in, and it made the chocolate so smooth and easy to work with! In my opinion, Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet is the best melting chocolate there is. We've tried lots of kinds, and it melts the smoothest. But maybe with shortening other kinds of chocolate work well too. Anyway, these were a huge hit (both to make and to eat) and we'll definitely be making these again!

Broccoli Cheese Soup V

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
We loved this recipe! I reduced it to 1/3 of the original recipes and it made enough for 2 of us plus some for my husband to take in his lunch. It was excellent!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
Excellent frosting. I made this exactly as stated for a carrot cake, and I couldn't stop licking the bowl after I had the cake frosted! I was prepared to add more sugar if I needed to, but I tasted the frosting after I'd put 2 cups in and it was perfect.

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.

Oreo™ Cookie Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
This was a huge hit at my family's Christmas celebration this year! I took other cooks' advice and was careful to spread it as thin as possble and that made it easy to break. I made 2 batches and bagged it up as stocking stuffers, and we're munching on the leftovers. This will go on my make-again list!

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!

Choco-Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2006
These cookies are AWESOME! I made them for a newly-diebetic uncle and he was just THRILLED! I had some too, they were just as good (if not better) than non-splenda cookies. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
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!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
I loved this! It was some work mixing up everything, especially since I didn't soften the cream cheese first (my bad). But the finished result was awesome, even though I overbaked it a bit! I HIGHLY recommend refrigerating it overnight if you can, it was MUCH tastier the next day!

Key Lime Cheesecake I

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
I made this for a coworker's birthday and it was a hit with everyone who loved key lime! This recipe packs quite a lime punch, so I served it with whipped cream so that those who wanted it could have the extra sweetness. This recipe was a total success!

Spinach Phyllo Cups

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
If I could give this recipe more than 5 stars, I would. I made some changes based on the advice I found here and the results were STELLAR: 1.) Use Garlic/Herb Feta. 2.) Doubled the amount of fresh garlic used (we love garlic at our house) 3.) Add a half cup of Parmesan to the mixture. 4.) Diced Roma tomatoes on top of the mixture after it's in the shells (but BEFORE baking) 5.) Shredded mozzarella on top of the tomatoes. These changes resulted in an absolutely delicious winner of a recipe that is on my permanent keep list.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
Made this last night and it was excellent. I made a few changes: I put it in a loaf pan instead of mini loaves, so I halved the glaze and I baked it for an hour instead of 45 minutes. I also found the mixture to be extremely wet, so I added another 1/2 cup of Oatmeal (making the total Oatmeal 1 cup) and it was perfect. Husband loved it, and is already planning meatloaf sandwiches with the leftovers. This will be added to our permanent rotation!

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!

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