No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
These are awsome!!! The nice thing is that I had everything for them already in my kitchen!! I made these EXACTLY by the recipe and they turned out perfectly. Just a hint: once you drop them onto the wax paper, go back and "push" each one together so that you end up with less little crumblies.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
Here's a suggestion: Make sure you bring all your ingredients together before you start cooking the rice...Have everything cut up and ready to go so that you aren't opening the rice constantly...That makes it sticky and clumped together. Otherwise, great taste and I will definitely make this again....

Perfumed Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
WOW. I think I died and went to heaven. After a dry run last week, I made this cake again with a couple of small changes, which I think improved it, even though it is an AWESOME cake just as it is. First, I added 1/2 cup of shredded coconut to the batter, and the biggest and the best change was that I made a cream cheese frosting, adding the coconut extract. I always slightly underbake my cakes and I suggest you do the same...

Chad's Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
I make a version of this a lot..I've not tried the bottle of beer ingredient, but I would imagine that it only enhances this easy, popular, and REALLY REALLY good dish!!

Ziti Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
I liked the flavor of the sauce a lot..A bit salty, so be careful of adding more salt. Also, the recipe calls for corn starch to be added, but does not say how. DON'T just dump the cornstarch in or you will have lumps to deal with. Some changes for next time: Half & half instead of heavy cream (it doesn't need it!)More artichokes, less pasta, and less chicken. I think I would have liked it better as a saucier dish.

Most Excellent Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
Out of five people at breakfast this Christmas morning, two really liked it, one didn't like the texture of the bread on the bottom, (me) two people didn't say, although they left it on their plate and didn't eat it. I think they were being polite. I thought this was lacking something. And buttering the bread????...I didn't see the point in that, since this is VERY fattening already. I'd rate it one star, myself, but others thought it was good.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2006
I will NOT make this again. With 2 boxes of pudding mix, plus the brown sugar-nut mixture it was WAY too sweet. This was a very dense, heavy cake that didn't get very "cake-y".

Banana Loaf Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
Using a cake mix and pudding mix makes this recipe WAY too sweet for me, although I really did like the flavor..Very banana-y!! If you are looking for something like banana bread, though, this may not be the one for you. If you are looking for a sweet, sweet cake, you will probably love it.

Spicy Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
What I LIKED about this recipe: The idea of using brown sugar AND rum extract. Also it's one of the few recipes that call for the LARGE can of pumpkin, which is what I had. BUT...this is NOT my favorite pumpkin bread. I HATE the taste of the baking soda. Ugh! And believe me, when you use one tablespoon, you can really taste it. Check out "Pumpkin Breat IV" on Allrecipes, so much better, folks. Trust me.

Raspberry Jalapeno Jelly

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
This did not gel very well at all, even though I tried to tweak the pectin. As for the sprig of mint, Like others, also didn't know what to do with it, as the recipe never mentions it later.

Tangy Mango Slaw

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
This is going to go PERFECTLY with my barbecued short ribs that I am fixing today. I picked it because it calls for ZERO oil or mayo. If you like a tangy cole slaw, you will love this. I heeded what others said and used the same amount of dressing in twice the amount of cabbage.

Neiman Marcus Cake I

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
When they say that this cake is REALLY REALLY SWEET and is more like a brownie, TAKE HEED!! I even used 1/2 cup less powdered sugar. I also added one egg and 1/2 cup water to the cake mixture because I wanted it more cakey. I also didn't like the way the topping was too crispy on the top. I guess what I was thinking of was a more cream cheesy, softer, topping and this definitely was not that. I'll pass on making it again..

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
I've made this several times now, with a few variations: Because of the different types of peanut butter I've used, I have had to adjust the flour. Just keep adding until you get to the rolling consistancy that you need. I substituted canned pumpkin for the banana because I've heard it is excellent for dogs. I didn't use the entire can, obviously, so I put the rest in baggies and froze for later recipes. I've put in leftover rice and quinoa, I've used a dab of oatmeal, I've grated up carrots.. As you can tell, I've monkeyed around with it quite a bit and my dogs still love me anyway.

Vegan Baked Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
The cinnamon and nutmeg are a nice change from your usual baked beans. I actually liked the flavor, but my husband thought it was so-so.. Nothing wrong with modifying it a bit and leaving it out if you want. I also thought the bay leaves were a stroke of genius!

Ruby Red Layered Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
It's beautiful!!! I really liked it, but gave it four stars because it was very very sweet. I used sugar free jello and people were shocked that I did...I'll make it again, though

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
Yup, this is the one to die for. I liked this recipe a lot because you can use the large can of pumpkin puree, unlike most pumpkin bread recipes. The other plus is that this calls for half baking powder and half baking soda. Don't fall for those recipes that call for all baking soda because you can really taste it in the bread. The only change I made to this was to cut the oil down to one cup. This recipe really is "the best".

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
I've made this recipe 3 times. I too thought the batter was a bit thick, hard to spread, and a little on the sparse side. However it turned out beautifully. I really think if the batter was increased by 1/2 it would be just about perfect. Nevertheless, it is a beautifully simple coffee cake that doesn't even need a mixer. The almonds are a wonderful combination with the berries. In the end, it was delicious and simple to make.

BREAKSTONE'S Creamy Layered Enchilada Bake

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
Not my cup of tea but my husband liked it. A bit too meaty and saucy with not enough tortillas. I don't know if I will make again

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
It was OK. People liked it, but I can't say it was the bet I've ever tasted. It did have that "cake mix taste"... Maybe I'm too picky...
