Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
This was just ok. Not nearly enough "sauce" and I even used less macaroni than called for. The flavor was pretty good though. I like a sweet macaroni salad, so it worked for me. I could see it being too sweet for some, however. With a few minor adjustments, I'm sure this could be a great salad.

Sweet Baby Carrots

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
Delicious! I have finally found a way for my husband and kids to eat cooked carrots! I reduced the amount of sauce based on other reviews (cut everything in half). It didn't take away from he flavor, just didn't waste extra sauce that I knew we wouldn't keep or use. I've made this twice now and my carrots seem to cook differently each time. Nothing to do with the recipe, just something I noticed. This recipe reminds me of Cracker Barrel's carrots...delish! I think I'll try to use this recipe as a base for making mashed carrots next time. Thanks for sharing!

Quick and Savory Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
No culinary masterpiece, but what do you expect from canned tuna? It pleased my family, including my two picky sons, and I would make it again. My sons don't eat mayo, so they put ketchup and cheese on theirs. Didn't have horseradish, but I added some cumin and chili pepper for a little kick. Just as the recipe states, this makes four "burgers". I was worried about the consistency since others claimed they fell apart, but mine held up beautifully. I will probably double the recipe next time. My husband went back to kitchen looking for seconds and was disappointed to find an empty plate.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
This is pretty good as is. Not sweet enough for me though. I added another 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar and thatt did the trick! I used this to top pumpkin cupcakes and it was the perfect match since the cupcakes aren't very sweet. Next time, I will let it cool a bit in fridge. It was a little too thin for piping.

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
I bake frequently and do not feel the poor outcome of this recipe was due to my abilities as a baker. I don't understand how these can be classified as a cupcake. I followed the recipe to a "T" and was disappointed with the barely lemon flavored muffins I ended up with. The only lemon in this recipe is 2 tsps of grated lemon peel, which is not nearly enough. As a muffin, these were fairly nice. I only scooped half of the batter the first time around because I was very skeptical of the thick consistency and figured some doctoring would be necessary. Even after adding some much needed fresh lemon juice, and several other ingredients, I could not make this work as a cupcake. I ended up thinning out the lemon buttercream I had made, added some blueberries, and they made a nice breakfast the next morning. I will not be making this again and will not recommend this to anyone (unless they want a muffin recipe!).
