Cocktail Meatballs IV

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
I made these meatballs for a Super Bowl Party and they came out great. Everyone wanted the recipe. I made my own italian meatballs and used one jar of Heinz chili sauce and one jar of Smuckers grape jelly with 2 tab. of Nance's Sharp and Creamy mustard. I cooked the sauce ingredients on the stove top until well blended and bubbly and then put the meatballs after they were cooked in the oven into my crockpot and poured the sauce on top and let them cook on low for 3 hrs. Perfect. They were tasty and moist. You just have to remember to give them a stir into the sauce every once in a while if they're not already gone by then.

Ham and Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Fantastic biscuits! The only changes I made were as other reviewers suggested and I used King's Hawaiian Rolls, and doubled the sauce mixture. I also buttered the bottoms of the rolls so they wouldn't stick to the baking dish. I cut the rolls in half and layered one slice of cheese, then ham, then cheese and put the tops back on. I baked them for 10 min. without the sauce and then 10 min. with the sauce brushed over the tops. I also omitted the poppy seeds. Definitely a keeper. YUMMY!!!

Yellow Squash Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
I don't think this recipe should say that the preparation time is only 10 minutes. I had to make the cornbread part first which took 25 minutes to bake. Also, the only change I made was I used butter instead of margarine. The taste was O.K. but I won't be making it again.

Rhubarb Upside Down Cake II

Reviewed: May 22, 2002
Comes out of the pan very easily. My family didn't care for the taste. They would have preferred fresh strawberries instead of the strawberry jello.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
I made this recipe and the changes I made were as follows: I added one teas. of almond extract to the water, used whipped cream instead of cool whip in the chocolate pudding mixture and I used french vanilla cool whip instead of plain. I also put a couple of crushed heath bars on top. Next time I'm going to add either bananas or strawberries as an additional layer. Everyone wanted the recipe. YUMMY!

Orange and Maple Glazed Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
Followed recipe exactly as stated and the turkey juices and syrup starting burning within the first 10 minutes. I turned the oven down to 400 and it still kept burning the bottom of the pan enough so that the smoke alarm went off. I turned it down again to 375 but I had to add water to the bottom of the pan. Turkey ended up very dry. I will not make this again. I will stick with my traditional way of roasting the turkey from now on.

Turkey in a Bag

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
I made this turkey exactly as stated except I also added some baby carrots inside the cavity along with the celery and onions. BE CAREFUL about the cooking time. My eleven pound turkey was done in 2-1/2 hrs. It was a little dry since I left it in an additional 15 minutes in hopes that it would brown some more. It didn't brown as much as I would have liked, but it made a nice broth for making gravy without all that butter. I will definitely make it again but take it out before it's overdone this time.

Orange Blossom Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2007
This trifle was only O.K. I even added some chocolate in the recipe as some other readers recommended and it still wasn't anything anyone liked or asked for seconds. It was very bland.

Kids Favorite Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
I am always looking for recipes to incorporate hidden vegetables into my dishes in order for my kids (ages 3 & 5) to secretly eat their veggies. This was the perfect recipe. Instead of using onion & garlic powder, I used finely chopped fresh onion, garlic and red bell peppers. Once mixed into the rest of the ingredients, the kids never knew they were eating veggies. They absolutely LOVED these. I cooked them in a regular sized muffin tin (made 15 muffins) and called them "Super Hero Cups." Big, big hit. They have already asked me to make them again. P.S. Even hubby liked them enough to eat four of them.

Apple and Spice Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
Great flavor but cookied don't mix well or look appetizing at all. They come out flat like silver dollars and are somewhat dry and fall apart very easily. Make sure you put a plate under your chin.

Blueberry Boy Bait

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
Very good but my family thought it tasted a lot like coffee cake and they needed a glass of milk to wash it down. I followed the recipe except I added another 1/2 cup of blueberries and 1 teas. of vanilla and 1 teas. cinnamon for more flavor. Baked it for 45 min. and it was just right. Next time I am going to make a blueberry recipe that doesn't call for quite as much work. It took more than 20 min. of prep time.

Lemon Lush Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
My family loved this pie. I made the following changes: I used a 9" graham cracker crust; 3/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup lemon juice and a heaping tablespoon of grated lemon zest. Make sure you really cook this until it's very thick and don't use light sour cream or it will be a little runny. When it was completely chilled, just before serving I put a layer of cool whip on top and there wasn't a drop of pie left. I highly recommend this pie for a spring or summer treat as it is very refreshing.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I followed this recipe with the following exceptions: 1) used one tablespoon of dried basil since I didn't have fresh; 2) used frozen and thawed cooked jumbo shrimp since I didn't have fresh. The flavor was great except next time I will use fresh shrimp as the pre-cooked shrimp get dried out and rubbery on the grill even for 2 min. on each side.

Pumpkin Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
These cookies melt in your mouth. Everyone loved them! The only changes I made were I halved the recipe and still used 1 egg, used 1 teas. pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and used mini chocolate chips instead of regular. I ended up with 38 cookies.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie III

Reviewed: May 22, 2002
Recipe had way too much tapioca! It made the pie dry and jelloie like. I used the crumb crust top and didn't like that either.

Chef John's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
I made these muffins exactly as stated in the recipe and it ended up making 21 muffins. The taste was good but not excellent. They were a little bland and my family said they were lacking something. They said they weren't sweet enough.

Key Lime Pie VIII

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Nothing special. I followed directions exactly except I added 1/4 cup shredded coconut as another reviewer suggested and no one like it. Everyone said it tasted just like eating a cool whip pie. It also didn't have any green color to it whatsoever, so I added two drops of green food coloring to give it more eye appeal. Still didn't help. Will not make again.

Peach Cobbler VI

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Followed the recipe exactly and my husband loved it. I on the other hand didn't care for it. It was too gooshie. Also, it needed extra sugar & cinnamon sprinkled on the top because I felt it was too bland. Maybe vanilla ice cream also would have helped.

White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Fantastic recipe. Everyone raved at the party. None left. I made the crust in a 12" pizza pan. Do not over bake as crust will come out too crispy. I baked mine for 25 min. and it was too long. I also used half & half instead of heavy cream and it was fine. Make sure you use the glaze on top as it makes for a very professional appearance. Definitely will make again and again.
