Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2002
THIS IS A STANDARD RECIPE IN MY HOUSE THAT IS WONDERFUL!! But here is how I make it: I wrap provolone cheese in the chicken in place of the cream cheese, I sprinkle onion powder on top of the cheese in place of the chives I use cream of mushroom rather than cream of chicken (I just like the mushroom better) I use 1/2 cup sour cream instead of mayo (don't like mayo AT ALL) I bake the chicken breasts with a few raw slices of bacon, but like some of the other comments, I pre-cook the bacon really crumbly and then I sprinkle it over the top of the chicken I add a little more milk to the sauce to make more sauce Definitely serve with egg noodles. MAKE THIS!! MAKE THIS!! It's so very good. These are just some things I have done that make this recipe most versatile!

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2003
I have quite a bit to say about these...they are excellent, my husband and I couldn't stop eating them, both the dough and the cooked cookies. They are tender, just the right amount of sweet flavor, and are buttery, even though I didn't use real butter, but instead used margarine, like the recipe called for.Don't soften the margarine before you make them (the recipe DOES NOT say to, but a lot of cookie recipes do, so I just wanted to note that). Also, to cut down on the stickiness of the dough, I recommend chilling the dough a bit, but not too long (just until it is no longer extremely sticky). I made one batch before I chilled it, and more after and the batch before the chilling spread out more and were a little flatter and maintained their chewy centers better. I would not recommend cooking them for 15 minutes; they will be WAY over done. I cooked mine for 9-10 min and did not allow them to brown at all. Then I left them on the cookie sheet before taking them off to finish cooking a little more. I recommend these highly and will make them again! I especially liked that they did not need to be rolled...who has time for that?

Baked Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2003
Wonderful!! I use thick, lean pork chops and I don't care for mustard, so I leave it out. The chops are not dry at all. The sauce comes out slightly sweet from the brown sugar, but spicy enough because of the pepper. This goes absolutely wonderfully with the recipe for honey roasted red potatoes found on this site.

Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2005
FIVE STARS IS NOT ENOUGH! You must try this recipe. I did not have any problems at all with this. I used a Fudge brownie mix from Duncan Hines, followed the cheesecake recipe exactly, except added 1 tsp lemon juice for some tang (oh yes, and low fat cr. cheese) and made my own fudge frosting with 2/3 C unsweetened cocoa pwdr, 3 C pwdr sugar 1 tsp vanilla and enough milk (anout 1/3 C) to make it easy to spread. Got ABSOLUTE rave reviews. I would not double the cheesecake, it is roughly the same amt as the brownie. Oh yes, and I would recommend less cooking time, mine only took about 30 minutes. You'll love this one!

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
5 stars isn't enough. AMAZING. Moist, tender, tasty. I made with the exact recipe ingredients, but I didn't mix in the blueberries. Instead I coated them with flour and then spread them evenly in the middle layer, along with the cinnamon and sugar. Topped with rest of blueberries not put in middle layer and then sort of pushed them into the batter with a knife. Then topped with rest of cinnamon and sugar mix. The whole family LOVED this. I'm a cake decorator, and I have picky eaters who are used to eating the best, most moist cakes, and they LOVED this!! THANKS

Breakfast Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2004
I really liked this and was impressed with the presentation. I did not have any troubles with the cheese sticking to the parchment paper. I did a few things differently: I used one more egg and next time I think I may use even more eggs to make it a little more moist (maybe add a little more milk too). I thinly sliced the potatoes and left out the peppers. I used garlic powder and onion powder in the potatoes for a little milder garlic/onion flavor. I only used 8 pieces of bacon, which I thought was plenty. I baked it in a 8x8 square pan and added a little more grated cheese after I poured the egg over. All in all, this was tasty, unique and filling.

Key Lime Pie II

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2002
This is an excellent no-bake key-lime pie. I especially like the smooth texture. The blend of the milk with sour cream and gelatin gives it a very "summery" cool taste. The only thing I would do is to leave out the lime zest; it doesn't go well with the smooth texture. Even still, I will make this again. Oh one more thing, I used a pre-made graham cracker crust, as that's what I prefer with key-lime.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
Been making these for years...my mom used to make them when I was a kid, and now I make them for my family. TIP-if you want to speed up cooking, cook for about 15 mins in microwave and then cook rest of way in 400 degree oven. You have to cook in oven to be able to have the skins crip and tough enough to withstand scooping and filling! Also, in a pinch you can always use those Bacos instead of real bacon :-)

Excellent Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 20, 2006
Good taste, but flat. I followed the recipe except left out the cinnamon and nuts, incread flour by 1/2 cup, increased soda to 1 tsp and only put in 2 1/2 C oats. Also cooked with 1/2 margarine 1/2 butter to hopefully not have them spread as much. Also chilled well and still spread. A good tasting cookie, but not the best in appearance.

Easiest Teriyaki Marinade Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
SUPERB!! I used this on boneless center-cut pork chops and added a little lemon juice and a couple dashes of pepper, as others suggested. Marinated for 6+ hrs and threw them on the grill. Simply outstanding. Keep the cinnamon, it makes them different! Try this!

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2005
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! That being said, these are more of a caramel roll, and a little less of a traditional cinnamon roll. I would recommend the Clone of a Cinnabon recipe if you want a traditional cinnamon roll. Also, I used regular milk instead of the powdered milk and they came out great. However, I needed to add quite a bit more flour to make the dough workable. I think even without the addition of regular milk, it may have needed more flour . The Dough is hard to roll. I recommend following the instructions and simply patting into a rectangle. This way the dough will stay soft also. I patted into approx. 12 by 6 rectangle, which made 12 rolls. I think doubling the caramel sauce would also be good. And, I cooked the sauce only 1 minute as another suggested, which was a good idea. It kept the sauce softer. Don't know that I would ice these, although I did consider it. Next time I think the double caramel sauce will suffice in keeping this a traditional caramel roll. I used a little more than 1 tsp of yeast. I don't know why all cinnamon roll recipes say that the dough will rise in 30 minutes. Mine never ever do. It usually takes 2 hours. However, I recommend BEING PATIENT. The last 2 times I made Clone of Cinnabon, I got impatient and tried sticking the dough in a low heat oven, and it ruined the dough.

Sirloin Marinara

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2005
Decent, but not great. I did not serve it with the potatoes, as suggested but with noodles. This MAY have contributed to it tasting like spaghetti with a different type of meat. But really, I don't think the potatoes would have made that much of a difference. We did like this, but honestly, with the cheaper price of ground beef, I think I may stick with that instead of the expensive steak.

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2003
UPDATE: I have been making these since I first found this recipe and I just made some more. I have to increase my rating to 5 stars, because not only are they easy, they really are SUPREME cookies. I use white choc. chips and reduce heat to 350. Very good cookie recipe. These stay soft for days after baked. I cooked them for 9 minutes and would recommend not any longer than this. These are dense and delicious! Recommend them highly if you are looking for a soft cookie.

Bran Muffins a la Brian

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2005
Simply delicious. I chose this recipe over the "Classic Bran Muffins" because this one had a little more sugar and molasses that I thought would make a sweeter muffin. I was right. This has the right amt of sweetness. The other recipe would not have enough. Also, left out raisins, don't like them. Overall, moist and wonderful.

Nacho Chip Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2004
This was decent, but not awesome. I used one can of diced tomatoes without chilis, as I was making for a toddler with a sensitive mouth. I added a little onion powder, a couple dashes of chili powder and cumin and baked the chips in the oven while I was preparing the meat. I used Velveeta cheese. Still, it was just okay, and the leftovers DID NOT reheat well. We ate it the first night and then hubby came home and said, "That really did not reheat well." I think if I am desperate to make something, I will make this again, but in a smaller pan so that there are no leftovers.

Four Layer Hamburger and Macaroni Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2002
This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I make it often. I don't agree with some of the other raters who say that the pasta is bland; I think it is great, and the taco seasoning is enough for me. The only thing I wold suggest is to add two tablespoons of sour cream to both layers of the macaroni and cheese. This is a VERY VERY easy recipe that will please most people.

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2007
Another UPDATE--last night I made these in an 8 by 8 pan. I halved the recipe that I had increased by 25% already. If you make in an 8 by 8 pan, I recommend these measurements: 1 1/4 cups flour, 3/4 cup powedered sugar, 1/2 cups plus 2 TBSP melted butter. For filling I used 2 and about 1/2 eggs (if you can separate and egg into halves, otherwise 2 will be ok too), 1 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 plus 1/8 tsp baking powder, 1/2 plus 1/2 TBSP flour, 1/3 cup plus 1 TBSP and 1/2 tsp lemon juice PLUS the zest of 1 lemon. I know this sounds like a lot, but they really do work well. For the crust, bake at 315, but only until the crust is still soft. It should still look slightly raw in the middle. Bake the crust plus filling for about 40 mins in the 315 oven. Seriously, these are SO AMAZING, I could eat the whole pan. Baking them this way keeps the crust soft and not brick hard. Good luck! UPDATE--shortbread crust is only hard if refrigerated. I do not recommend storing these in the fridge. Keep them on the counter and they will be fine. Love the flavor, and as suggested by someone else, I increased whole recipe by 25%. HOWEVER, the crust never browns, and so I kept waiting for it to do so, and as a result the shortbread crust was like a ROCK. As a warning, do NOT cook the crust more than 15 mins in a 315 degree oven. Do NOT wait for it to brown. In fact, if I did it again, I might cook the crust 10 mins only.

Zucchini Bread VI

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
This is very good. I have never made zucchini bread before, and since I love lemon, I decided to give this a try. Loved it! The lemon flavor could have been even stronger for my taste, but otherwise this was excellent.

Cream Cheese Bars II

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
Made these and my husband told me that I had been holding out on him for this great breakfast/dessert item. I use 1 1/2 blocks of cream cheese tho to make a slightly thicker middle. Use the full 1/2 cup of butter.
