No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
If you like peanut butter, this pie is for you. IT IS REALLY RICH so have a glass of milk ready. I did as others suggested and only used 1 cup powdered sugar, One 8oz container of cool whip and 1 cup of milk. I made one for my son's pre school's teacher meeting and the director's comments were, "OH MY! That pie was DANGEROUS! It was really good!" I made one for dinner at my brother in law's and they said it was good. Make sure you freeze it over night if you want it more like peanut butter ice cream, like an ice cream cake with the crushed oreo cookie crust. I used an entire bag of oreos and 5 tbs of melted butter, and cooked the crust for 15 minutes. DO NOT smash the cookies down into the pie pan too hard or the crust will be like a rock. Good and easy but VERY PEANUT BUTTERY! It gets soft REALLY EASILY so don't let it sit out for too long or you have crust and soupy peanut butter mush all over.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This pie was VERY easy and tasted pretty good, but not THE BEST pumpkin pie I have ever had. I only made this one pie, and there were a few pieces left at our family Thanksgiving gathering. Not a good sign since there were 9 huge, food loving adults there along with 5 children.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This is a yummy holiday recipe. It makes your house smell so good! My brother in law requests it every year now, so it's fast becoming a holiday tradition to have this cranberry sauce on top of a block of cream cheese with various crackers all around for appetizers before the big meal. We love it!

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
These are pretty YUMMY, but sometimes the caramel came out of the cookie and it made a big mess. It gave me an excuse to eat the "mess ups" though! Everyone likes them, but make sure to factor in the 2 hour chill time in the prep time. It's a yummy cookie, but I gave it 4 stars for the extra prep work... unwrapping all the rolos, chill time, having to wrap the dough around the rolo, having to let them sit on the cookie for several minutes before taking them off because they are so soft and gooey...a little work and hassle, but if you love oooy goooy chocolatey cookies, this is for you.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
So pretty and oh my gosh...YUM YUM! I made these with a friend for Christmas and when I saw her at work the next day she said OH MY GOSH! THOSE ARE SO GOOD!" EVERYONE that eats them LOVES THEM! They are addicting! Once you eat one, you can't stop! My whole family is coming over for New Year's Eve and my brother in law requested these cookies. I found that I had to make the little dough balls TEENIE TINY to make the recipe stretch. If you want to make allot, double the recipe. Update - EVERY TIME we make these people RAVE about them and say "Those were THE BEST cookies! Can I have the recipe?" They are the best!!!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
Pretty yummy. I asked my husband how many stars we should give this and he said 4. We'd make it again!

Orange Gelatin Salad

Pretty yummy! I took this to work for a potluck and I got several comments about how yummy it was and a few people asked me for the recipe. It's EASY and quick and yummy!

I Love My Pear Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2004
This is pretty yummy! My sister in law made this recipe and brought it to a family dinner and everyone in the family has been asking for this jello every family dinner since! There are never left overs because it goes so quickly! Now, when we plan family dinners, someone asks, "So who is making the green jello?" It's light and creamy, like a dessert jello. My family loves it!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2004
OOOOHHH! THESE ARE PRETTY AMAZING! It's a nice change from the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe. It's just fun when people eat your cookies and say, "OHHHH THESE ARE GREAT!" It was a little difficult to decide just how long to leave them in the oven. I undercooked the first batch. They were way to gooey and fell all apart. I added 2 extra minutes onto each batch and they came out much better. I made huge cookies though. They are soft and yummy! My brother in law said, "These are the best semi sweet chocolate chip cookies I have ever had!" That is a BIG deal coming from him.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2002
My 10 year old said, "This is a 5 star recipe! I rate this right below mac and cheese!" That about says it all coming from a kid. My husband said "Oh yeah. I'd eat it again" so it's been added to our recipe box! We don't like our food too spicy so you might want to add more spice if you like a "kick" in your mexican food.

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2002
OHHH this is yummy! It tastes like a light, fluffy, strawberry cheesecake. Everyone loved this. My brother in law said after one bite, "OH this is so good!" The only thing I will do differently when I make it again is smash the pretzels with a rolling pin so they are more pulverized, but NOT smash it so hard into the pan when making the crust. If you press too hard, you have a crust made of concrete. It was still YUMMY!

Hershey's ® Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2002
I thought this was pretty good, but my husband didn't like it. He never goes for anything chocolate made from cocoa powder because it's more of a bitter taste and he likes more of a milk chocolate taste. It wasn't as good the next day, even after I heated it up in the microwave to make the chocolate sauce gooey again. You have to eat it when it's still warm and gooey!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2002
Pretty yummy! Very easy. The chicken was tender and had a nice flavor. I asked my husband if it was a keeper and he said "Oh yeah!" The only thing is I bought the real parmesan cheese still in shredded form and couldn't figure how the cheese and bread crumbs were going to stick to the chicken! My husband said,"I think you're supposed to use the powdered stuff in the green can." Oopps. That makes sense. Make sure you start off with the stuff in the green can. You know that stuff you put on spaghetti!

Calabrese Style Spaghetti

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2002
GARLIC OVERLOAD! Something must have happened when the "All recipes servings converter" converted the recipe to 12 servings for our family dinner party. It was SO over garlicky that we just threw the whole pot away. Luckily we had something else to whip up for everyone but it was embarrassing to have to say, "Gee, everyone. I am so sorry. It was a 5 star recipe on my recipe site." I'll probably make it again out of curiousity to see if it comes out in the original 2 servings the recipe calls for.

Barbecued Beef Cubes or Hamburger

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2002
Tasted like sloppy joe meat. Nice flavor. Recipe doesn't say what to do with the pasta, so we just cooked it and served the meat on top.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2002
Very yummy! A little time consuming, but adds a little something fancy to dinner parties. I'll make these again, but I'll add the bacon into the potatoe mixture rather than as a topping. I had large potatoes and I'll cook them longer next time too.

Cheese Garlic Biscuits I

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2002
Yum Yum! I don't see you could get 9 biscuits from this unless you like really small mini biscuits. It made about 6 medium size. I'll add more cheese next time to make them really cheesey. A nice change from regular dinner rolls

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2002
Pretty yummy, but a bit too spicy for our family. I'd make it again, but I'd make is less spicy. I made this for another family, and they loved it, but they like more spicy food than we do.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2002
We only used 1 teaspoon chili powder and it was still too spicy for my husband. I have to admit it had a slight kick, but still a nice flavor. Maybe I did something wrong but I thought they turned out looking like a goopy mess. I made these for another family and they said they were wonderful. She kept raving and raving so I don't think she was just being nice. Personally, I will keep looking for the perfect enchilada recipe because this just wasn't it for us.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2002
I thought this was pretty good! It had a nice sweet flavor and I didn't have to drown it in mustard or ketsup like some meatloaf I have had. My husband liked it too, but he didn't think it was THE BEST meatloaf he has ever had. We just got done having the leftovers for lunch and it was pretty yummy. I'd make it again. I just made this for my husband's family and they all asked for the recipe and said it was the best meatleaf they ever had! I did DOUBLE the brown sugar and ketsup for EXTRA sauce. It was REALLY GREAT!
