Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
Ok if I can do this, anyone can! I made it according to directions. I was confused by comments that recommended not using the whole bar of cream cheese because without that, I couldn't get the dough consistentcy needed. I also did not even taste the cream cheese, so perhaps they were using a different type of cream cheese. The possibilities are endless with this recipe! Hmm what about nutter butter cookies with strawberry cream cheese? PB & J cookies? These taste fantastic and will be my new go to recipes. FYI I found using a small spoon much easier than the fork to roll the balls around in the chocolate. Also I used almond bark as other suggested, YUM!!!

Turkey Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
EVeryone in the family loved it. I used Stove Top Stuffing instead of the slice of bread. It was great!

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
This was good but not exceptional. It was a little boring for my tastes. I would put the seasoning on the beets too and add more of it.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
This is fantastic. I always lighten up baked goods, but since I was taking it to a party, I just went ahead and made this full out. I cannot eat chocolate so I ate a tiny bite and it was fantastic. Everyone at the party was raving about it. I would highly recommend this. WHen I make it for my husband's birthday this weekend, I will lighten it up but Wed when I make it for the teachers at school I will make it full on again!! Fantastic!!

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Very good. It was my first time making a Sirloin Tip ROast and this recipe is a keeper. Next time I will cook it to 135 degrees. It was a little too done for my liking.

Banana Muffins I

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
So this is good BUT.... not the best I have ever had. They were a bit plain and I had to put some blue agave syrup on them before eating them which worked out fine. I appreciated that they were low fat and less sugar, but it needed more taste and sweetness for me. If I made these again I would add some blue agave to the mix and perhaps add cinnamon as others did. I like to rate the recipe as is and not base it on a bunch of changes. I would have given this 3 1/2 stars if I could.

Curried Mustard Greens with Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Very good! It does need more flavor though. I added a teaspoon of additional curry and about 1 1/2 tsp of onion powder. I didn't have shallots so I just used green onions and added onion powder. I also used a can of diced tomatoes because I realized the tomato sauce I bought had basil and oregano in it. I also salted it to taste.

Bachelor's Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
This was a great base to start with. I loved the cream of potato soup in it. I used fresh pumpkin that I had in the freezer. I didn't love it so I added a can of pumpkin. I had to add it little more water. I liked it thicker though. I do prefer a little bit of sweetness to anything pumpkin so I added honey and cinnamon. I just did it to taste. I also sprinkled some garlic salt in it. We loved it!!1 it.

Almost Eggless Egg Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I gave this a 4 because I thought it was a bit bland following the recipe exact. I added more relish and another tbsp of mayonnaise and it was perfect. It is definitely better if you chop up the tofu really fine. I had cubed tofu and I didn't like it until I minced it up really good. After that it was awesome!!!!!!!!! It tasted remarkably like egg salad. My husband who scoffs at tofu even liked it.

Beef and Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
This was very good and easy to make. I cut the cheese in half to reduce fat, but I must admit, I think I could have left the cheddar cheese out completely. I tasted the sauce as we went along and I liked it better before the cheese. I do think it was good baked in the oven. I will be making this again for sure, just without the cheese.

Uncle Mac's Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
I thought they were great. My kids didn't love them ironically. I used a thick strawberry preserve first and they looked great. I just pulled out my second batch where I used a runny grape jam and it went everywhere. A thicker preserve is better.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
I gave this stuffing 5 stars because it was very good and I can only imagine that stuffed into the bird, it would be awesome!!! I did it in a covered dish. I added about 1 1/2 cups of chicken stock and just kept it covered at 350 for 30 minutes and uncovered for 15. I did add a couple of extra cups of bread. I used all butter bread because I was afraid of the wheat bread. Next time I will definitely add an egg. That was my only complaint since it was crumbly. I didn't knock a star off because in the bird this wouldn't be a problem. For Christmas I will double the recipe, add extra bread, and use 1 pound of turkey sausage and 1/4-1/2 pound of regular. It really is a lot of meat and you could do without some. Even a 1/4 pound of sage sausage would add huge flavor.

Old Virginia Wassail Cider

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
This was amazing!! I was a little unsure that it would taste to citrus-y but it was the perfect blend of flavors. It wasn't too sweet and all the flavors blended together beautifully. I did leave out the cloves because I do not like them. Usually I get a recipe then tweak it, look for others, try those, and then come up with my own to perfect it. This was really perfect as is (minus the cloves). I don't think it can be improved. Thanks so much, this is my new holiday drink. At my party today everyone raved about it.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
This was just ok. The chicken was very over done. I think chicken sometimes gets almost grainy in a slow cooker, but that is just a personal preference. It was watery. I didn't mind it, but I told my husband it was Gumbolaya, to make it sound like it was supposed to be that way. The flavor was decent. My husband wouldn't eat it at all. I make a jambalaya in the oven that is really light, easy, and awesome. I think I will stick to that recipe.

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
I LOVE THIS RECIPE!!!!! It is so easy and cheap and makes your house smell great. I made a couple of small changes. I used peaches in light syrup. I added a drained can of chopped peaches because I like a lot of fruit. I also used light butter. AFter it cooked for 15 minutes, I took it out and sprayed it down with butter spray. When it was done I took a spatula and lightly pressed the top crust down to make sure it wasn't too powdery since I used light butter. Just a few extra steps to lighten it up and the reviews were more positive then when my mother in law made it with real butter. It ijust isn't as rich and the topping is crisper. I have tried this with blueberry pie filling which was ok but not as good as the peaches. I also tried it with apple pie filling which I would not recommend.

German Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
Ok I never give bad reviews but I was bummed after I made this! I have made German pancakes before from this site but couldn't remember the name. After making this I realized there is no way this was the same recipe. This was very dense and almost dry because it was like solid egg. I just searched everywhere trying to figure out what I made before and finally found it. Big GErmans!! That, to me, was much better. It is about the same but only has 4 eggs and some lemon juice in it. I remember it really fluffing up and just tasting amazing. I had even made it with egg subsitute and still liked it, though not as much. I could this 2 stars because my daughter liked it but the other recipe was much more to my tastes.

Big Germans

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
I have made this before and loved it. I am so mad because I couldn't remember the name and just searched German pancake. I made one of those recipes which called for 6 eggs. They tasted awful compared to this. Ugh! I will be making this again soon and I am glad I finally remembered the name:)

Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
This was excellent. We had 2 tenderloins. We marinated 1 in orange juice and garlic and the other my brother did in a mesquite chicken and rib rub on the other. We were going to do a 3rd with this glaze. We ended up sticking with the 2 and just put the glaze over them. It was amazing!!!! I am making it again tonight with a citrus marinated tenderloin. I am sure it would taste great by itself but you can definitely epxeriment with the flavors.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
This was very good and easy. I made a black bean salsa as an appetizer with black beans, corn, tomatoes, lime juice, and cilantro. When on added that to this soup it was amazing!! I would say add lime wedges to squeeze in your own lime juice and fresh cilantro to you toppings list. The lime juice gave it a great flavor.
