April's Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This was good. I cut the recipe in half but didn't reduce the red peppers- still used 1/3 cup. I mixed everything together in the food processor so the red peppers got blended and the cheese ball was a pinkish/orange color. I liked how the flavor was blended throughout. This was good, but I think something was missing, perhaps some fresh chives would have been good to add some of that slight onion flavor. But still really good!

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
This is a good basic recipe for hot cocoa. We garnished ours with whipped cream, and used a mix of skim and 1% milk and left out the half-n-half.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This is really good, and super easy to make, to boot. It does taste like Ranch. I wanted to try doing it with buttermilk but bought a small carton of 2% milk instead of buttermilk-oops! So I just made it as written and have been using it mostly as a dip, since it's so thick. When I go to the store again I'll get buttermilk and try it that way. I used light mayo and sour cream to lower the fat. **** I made this again- this time using buttermilk instead of sour cream. I had to add extra buttermilk to get it to the consistency I wanted. I enjoyed it more this time around!

White-Hot Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
This was very good. I've been wanting to make this recipe for a long time, and finally did today- it's freezing outside and there is snow everywhere. A good day to stay inside, be cozy and drink hot chocolate. This recipe took a little time to make- melting the chocolate, adding the egg, then the milk and heating it slowly. But it's worth it. I used a Pyrex bowl on top of a pan of simmering water and did the whole recipe in the bowl. My husband was on hand to help me make this, and I was glad when I got to the adding milk to egg part. Two pairs of hands are helpful there. I only added a dash of cayenne. The whole family enjoyed this- the babies had thiers with a candy cane stirrer.

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
This was really good. Just watch the baking time- 60 minutes would be way too long. I did 25 and it was perfect. I used about 12 oz. of wagon wheel pasta, havarti instead of mozz, extra sharp white cheddar, and pepper jack instead of montery jack. It was really good- I had to make myself stop taking more and more. It was a big hit with my husband, and 5-year old and one year old. My baby just kept eating it long after everyone else was done! Lol. My only complaint is that it took a long time to prepare, and dirtied more pots than the usual mac and cheese, what with the heating up of the milk (I didn't have a clean microwave safe bowl that was big enough though.) I did use the ham and really enjoyed that. Served this with green beans.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
These tasted pretty good, but I much prefer potatoes where you make a creamy white sauce first. This didn't really have a creamy sauce at all, just cheese. Plus, I had to cook it almost double the time listed before the potatoes were tender. I used a full paper towel to soak up the grease floating on top before serving, and it was still pretty greasy. It was a lot of work for a so-so result. I did enjoy all the cheeses, and used Tillamook Garlic White Cheddar for the cheese for some extra garlic flavor. So the flavor was great, but I wouldn't make these again.

Baked Ham with Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This was delicious. Very easy to make, too. I used this recipe for our Christmas ham.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
This was very good and had great flavor. I did have to add about 1/4 cup water and a 6 oz. can of no-salt tomato paste to get it to a chili-like consistency. It was perfect after that. I browned the turkey with onions and garlic and added everything to the crockpot and let it cook all day. Served with sour cream and tortilla chips, and a green salad.

Roast Chicken with Cracked Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
This recipe did not work for me. The chicken itself was wonderfuly moist and tender, but the sauce was horrible. I was excited to try a peppercorn sauce but it just didn't work. I'll have to try another recipe for the sauce.

Herbed Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
This was good, and very easy to whip up. I added a bit of extra cheese (havarti with dill, and some extra sharp cheddar) but I think it still could have used more flavor. The sour cream was a nice touch; made the sauce nice and thick. Everyone else in my family just loved this though. Especially popular with my one year old and my 5-year old! The "crust" of cheese on top was our fave part.

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I really like this recipe. I chose it because I really don't like molasses, and I like how this recipe uses dark corn syrup instead. Upon reading the reviews that the dough was dry and hard to work with, I added 2 extra "squirts" of the corn syrup. I chilled it for a couple hours, but let it soften on the counter for a while before rolling it- it was rock hard when it came out of the fridge! It rolled fine, wasn't too dry or too sticky, like some people mentioned. The cookies did puff up a lot in the oven, but flattened once they cooled. I used a cup of whole wheat pastry flour. My kids and I decorated these last night with a buttercream icing. My one-year old sat in his highchair, watching us, and munched on mini gingerbread boys and girls. We all had a blast with these!

Italian Pinwheel Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
These were very good. Lots of garlic in these- I actually only used 5 cloves because I thought 6 would be too many for the smaller amount of dough. The whole family loved these. They were simple to make, too. I used one cup of whole-wheat flour. Great presentation!

Candy Cane Cocoa

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
This is so good and rich. I used 2% milk and 2 ounces very dark bittersweet chocolate and 1 ounce semi-sweet choco chips. It didn't take long at all for the candy canes to melt. We had this tonight with popcorn while watching Christmas movies. Great recipe!

Delicious Feta-Crusted Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
Mmmm- I absolutely loved this!! The feta was so good! I used sundried tomato and herb feta. I totally omitted the extra salt and it was perfect. I didn't want to open my block of cream cheese for just one tablespoon, so I used 2% fat Greek yogurt instead of the cream cheese. Unfortunately I am out of panko crumbs so I had to use regular. I only had to bake about 25 minutes- I think the time listed is too long. Watch it carefully, as you really don't want to overcook salmon. We had broccoli, steamed rice, and sliced avocado with this. Loved it!

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
These are really good. Really easy too. I bought the bag of pea-sized Kraft caramels (no unwrapping required) and used that, and I also used half and half instead of cream. The only problem with the recipe is the pan size. There is no way that this would work in a 9x13. In fact, I had my 9x13 greased and ready to go, and made the "dough". I looked at the dough and realized there was not nearly enough to form two layers in the bigger pan. So I used a 9x9 pan and it was just perfect! (I hadn't read any reviews before starting, but I did after, and realized many people did the same). I brought these to a Christmas party and they were all gone.

Cheesy Italian Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
This is great. I used one cup of whole wheat flour. I also used 1/2 tsp of garlic powder 1/2 tsp of garlic salt and added 1 tsp of Italian seasoning. When the loaves came out of the oven, I brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled them with some parm. I also used parm inside the bread. I made this for my husband's birthday meal along with Chicken Parmigana, whole wheat angel hair, green beans, and Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad.

Lemon-Cranberry Mini Loaves

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
This is really good bread! The first day I made it, it was pretty good, but not great. I let it sit overnight in a big sealable bag and the flavor really improved- I think the lemon glaze got a chance to soak in and add flavor and moistness. I used fresh cranberries because I mis-read the recipe but I really liked them in there. I used half applesauce for the oil. I made it in two regular-sized loaves. This bread is anything but dry.

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
These were really good- they were incredibly light and fluffy, with a great texture inside and perfect crispness outside. I was surprised just how light and airy they were. They are not at all heavy like one reviewer said. I used honey instead of molasses (don't like moldasses and don't keep it on hand) and I liked that flavor. I also used whole wheat pastry flour. I also made my own buttermilk with lemon juice and milk. They stuck to the waffle iron badly- have to grease or spray it before every waffle. The batter is really thin too, let it stand 1 or 2 minutes before using and it will thicken up a little. Nice recipe!

Spicy Beef Curry Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
This is a good, hearty and filling meal. I served it with brown rice and steamed broccoli. My ginger had gone bad, so I had to use dried, and I also used cayenne in place of the jalepeno. I browned the meat, and added everything else except the onion and broth- no need to remove the meat before adding the garlic, etc. I added the whole can of (low-sodium) broth. This was easy and flavorful!

White Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
These are so good. I had leftover melted white chocolate so I just used that. I also used the Holiday Shapes pretzels- made a great treat for my kids- I only tasted a few because they were eaten up so quickly! I'd like to drizzle milk chocolate over the top as some reviewers suggested.
