Crackle Top Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
These came out perfect! Made them for a bake sale, and had to stop my 7 year old from eating them up. A big hit.

Cupcake Graveyard

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
Made these tonight (I know- a week late) and the kids loved them. I used chocolate frosting, crushed oreos for the dirt and Milano cookies for tombstones. A big hit and super easy.

Inside Out Ravioli II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
I cooked half an onion and 2 stalks of celery with the ground beef, as well as adding 2 cloves of garlic, fresh basil, fresh parsley, fresh grated parmesan cheese and dried oregano to the mix. I also only kept it in the oven long enough to melt the cheese- not brown it. It was delicious- even my kids ate it up. With some added ingredients, it is a 5 star recipe. Will make again.

Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Not bad. Cheesecake flavor in an easy to make bar. I wasn't overly fond of the pastry bottom, or the filling itself, as it was not as rich and decadent as a good cheesecake is. I did double the filling- and thank god I did because it still didn't seem like enough- I can't imagine how thin these bars would have been as written. My advice- don't make them without doubling the filling! Were they easy- yes! And that was their saving grace. I needed a dessert in a hurry, and they did come out of the pan beautifully. I served them drizzled with a Mango sauce which helped dress them up. A good recipe in a pinch, but not as satisfying as a real cheesecake.

Lemonade Pie IV

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
It doesn't get much easier than this! It's not overly sweet which we liked. Not all my filling fit into my pie plate/crust, so next time I probably won't put in all the whipped topping. My husband and I enjoyed it, but for some reason the kids didn't, so I'm giving it four stars.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
Awesome! Used milk chocolate cake mix, added 2 tsp oil, as other reviewers suggested, used 1 cup M&Ms instead of chocolate chips. Recipe made exactly 24 cookies, baked them for 8 minutes, looked underdone but came out perfect after sitting. Kids gobbled them up, and I think they were even better the second day. So easy, I will be making these again soon!

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Good, but a little on the bland side. I used fresh ginger, and next time I might add some chili sauce or red pepper flakes for heat.

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
I wasn't really impressed. The only flavor was the italian breadcrumbs. I cubed the potatoes and left the zucchini in bigger chunks, so I didn't have a problem with the cooking time. My kids picked the potatoes out and left the pepper and zucchini, hubby said it was just okay. Won't make again as is- maybe if it had tomatoes, or other veggies, and I added cheese it would be tastier.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Delicious! I, like other reviewers, only used 1 pkg of cream cheese, and slightly more sugar. Quick, easy and yummy- will make again.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
Was this a quick and easy dinner solution to a hectic day? Yes. But did we like it? Not really. I used 2 cans of soup- 1 cheese/broccoli and 1 cream of mushroom, and used about 3/4 cup of milk instead of mayo. It was still on the dry side, so I can't imagine with only 1 can of soup, and I found it VERY salty. With 2 cans of soup, the stuffing mix, and cheese the saltiness is off the charts. We ate it 3 nights ago, but none of us have gone back for leftovers, and while I do supply my grandparents with meals during the week, I'm afraid the sodium count on this is way too high for their strict diets.

Mock Mincemeat Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
I'd never had mincemeat before. Made it as directed, with apples we had just picked. Had a lot of liquid, so along with the saltines, I stirred in some cornstarch I had dissolved in OJ. That kept the cut pieces from being too runny when we served it at room temperature. I had made a lattice-top. The taste was not orangey as I thought it would be considering the juice and zest, and I even added a tbs of grand mariner to the stovetop mixture. The taste of cloves was a bit overpowering for me, but my husband really enjoyed it. Would make it again with less cloves, and maybe add nutmeg and vanilla.

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Had a brunch yesterday and this was the first thing that went. Everyone loved it- two people asked me for the recipe. I didn't even get to taste it! Made it with 8 pieces of bread and 6 eggs, kept everything else the same. A big hit!

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
Very flaky as promised- but not a lot of flavor. Next time I might sub some butter for the all the shortening and maybe add sugar.

Lemon Berry Slushy

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
This was a nice drink for a hot summer day. I agree with other reviewers that found it tart, though. Next time I'll cut down on the lemon juice. I also used the berries frozen instead of thawing them, therefore needing less ice.

Bandito Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Pretty good. I used fresh green and wax beans, and frozen black-eyed peas instead of black beans. Followed the recipe the rest of the way- cooked on the stove in my dutch oven instead of a crockpot. Flavorful, sweet and savory, but the fennel was a bit much, next time I'll leave it out.

Pam's Bierocks

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
I had never heard of Bierocks or Runzas before, but the recipe sounded good and I'm glad I tried them. These were so delicious! The dough is perfect- so soft and tasty- although I did have to add additional flour since it was quite sticky to work with at first. The recipe yielded 25 bierocks, which were gone in about 48 hours. I added some fresh thyme and parsley to the filling, but kept everything else the same. Will make these again and again. Thanks!

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
This chili was excellent! I used 1 can of kidney beans and 1 can of refried beans, which thickened it up a bit. I also added a can of diced tomatoes in lieu of some of the sauce. Very good recipe.

Creamy Succotash with Bacon, Thyme and Chives

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This was wonderful! I didn't have any cream, so I used evaporated milk and a pat of butter. It was so easy to make, and tasty and filling- even the kids cleaned their plates. Will be making again- thanks!

Grilled Chicken Salad with Seasonal Fruit

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
Wow! This was really good. I used iceberg instead of bib lettuce, and added radishes because my 5 year old loves them. I only used 1/3 cup sugar and 3/4 cup oil for the dressing, and used fresh strawberries. Will definitely make again- everyone enjoyed it.

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Wow! I've been using the Jay's Signature dough from this site for years and thought it was the best, but once I tried this one there's no going back! I gave it a shot this weekend with the chicken pesto pizza recipe from this site, baked it for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees and it was perfect- golden, chewy, not bready at all. Will use this recipe from now on- thanks!
