Hashbrown Breakfast Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Very good! Added minced onions and a little crumbled bacon. MUST serve with the pico de gallo - it really makes it come together!

Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
Hmm. I think I would rate these cookies at a 3 1/2, but I will up them to 4 because I may have made an error somewhere (but I can't think of where...). The flavor was OK, and I substituted half of the oil with applesauce. I also used chocolate chips instead of raisins, which I thought helped. I made them larger than called for based on other reviews. They turned out pretty 'fluffy' for a cookie, but mine looked like the pictures so I think I did it right.. Who knows, maybe the ladies at work will love them tomorrow. So, a decent cookie but just not my favorite.

White Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
Super delicious!! I made it pretty close to as written, but substituted white chocolate chips instead of butterscotch since that was all I had. It was a great choice. Tasted pretty brownie-like to me, and didnt need any extra bake time like other reviews suggest. Maybe the issue was different ovens.. Either way, I will definitely be making these again. YUM

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Great recipe! I used Yellow cake mix and substituted ½ of the oil with applesauce. I used cream cheese frosting, but only like ¾ of a container. I also waited until the cake was completely cool before mixing it up. I warmed up the frosting for like 20 seconds before mixing it in. I just used a fork to mash it all together. I also didn’t use a melon baller.. I just used a spoon to scoop it out, then formed it with my hands. Then I froze the balls for a while, and then while they were still hard from the freezer, I dipped them in melted chocolate. I found that using a toothpick was the easiest way. These got great reviews at the fathers day gathering, and at work the next day. I will definitely make again, and I am excited to try different flavors!

Strawberry Pineapple Bread

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Holy smokes - these are fabulous! I made just a few changes - applesauce instead of oil, fresh fruit instead of frozen or canned, and no nuts. I made half of the batter into muffins and half into a bread loaf. These are some of the freshest-tasting I have ever made. Will definitely make again! *Update - The muffins turned out better than the bread loaf. I didn't bake the muffins for as long as the loaf- but the loaf ended up a little under cooked. May want to increase the baking time.

Fabulous! Made exactly as written, but just added 1/3 cup of pecan granola to the graham cracker mix. It was a huge it at the potluck I brought it to! Thanks for the great recipe!

Chocolate Covered Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I brought these to a family gathering, and almost everyone loved them. I made the peanut butter and coconut kind, and a mint one that I made up myself using Andes mint pieces and peppermint extract in the chocolate coating. These are all great - but a little too sweet for some people at the party. I would recommend making them smaller, so they are really only one small bite's worth. Also - to make life easier - use Baker's dipping tubs (or similar brand) for the chocolate coating. It was super easy, and tasty too! Will make these again, but will play around with the filling to see about cutting down the sweetness just a tad!

Cheese Onion Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
This was a really good cheesy garlic bread recipe! I made an error and flipped the amounts of mozarella and parmesan cheese, but it was still really yummy. Might just have been my oven, but 5 minutes was too long to broil. Would cut back on the mayo amount just a bit next time, but it was really good the way its written!

Apple-Curry Tuna Melts

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
What a great change from the average, every-day tuna melts. The apple and curry powder together really work great! I used red onion instead of green onion, gouda instead of cheddar, and didnt use nearly as much of the mayonnaise. I also only broiled for half the written time. The toasted walnuts are fabulous on this too! How wonderful! Thanks Edie!

Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
Great texture, but not quite sweet enough for me. Lacked a bit of the chocolate taste that I love in pudding. However, I added some mini chocolate chips on the top of one of the small bowls and that helped. Really quick and easy to make.

Steak Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I didnt have any ginger, but I added duck sauce to the soy sauce mixture. It was pretty delicious. I used red and orange peppers, broccoli, onion, and green onion as the veggies, and added some leftover steak that I had from last night. Next time, I will add mushrooms and water chestnuts. YUM!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Great recipe! I only added mushrooms (because I love them). Everything else stayed the same. Definitely a healthy soup choice. Thanks for the recipe!

Diet Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Pretty good as is - but I add mushrooms, green pepper, and tomato juice. This is a great starter recipe that you can build off of to create your own 'diet soup'. Thanks PEGW!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
Wonderful! I had never made homemade applesauce before, and I wanted to try something easy. I added a bit more cinnamon than called for, and it was superb!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
I made this for a potluck at work, and everyone RAVED about it and asked for the recipe. I made only a few changes - added blackberries and frozen peaches, and ommited the brown sugar. I used apricot preserves, and thought it tasted perfect. Recipes like these are made to be played with - so experiment with whatever flavors you like best. So wonderful!

Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
A pretty good recipe. Felt like it was missing something, but I dont know what it was. I made the sauce with less butter and added 1 cup of fat free half & half and used 1 cup of skim milk. I also used a mixture of parmesan, romano and asiago cheese and that added alot of flavor. I added corn and doubled the amount of mushrooms (because I love 'em). The biggest difference was that I used mushroom-stuffed ravioli instead of penne pasta, and I think that added alot of flavor to the dish. Not the best thing I have ever made, but it was pretty darn good. The smoked salmon added a nice smokey taste that I wasn't expecting.

Pasta and Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
This was a pretty good meal. I made a few changes though - I roasted the cauliflower and onion in the oven and I think that really made a lot of difference. I coated them in about 2 TBS of olive oil and that was plenty. I also added a bit more garlic then was called for. Per the suggestion of other reviewers, I did add about 1/2 cup of the pasta water to the mix afterwards, which really helped with the dryness. It was very tasty, but next time I will definitely add broccoli and mushrooms.

Chocolate Pretzel Rings

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
A perfect snack! The salty and sweet combo is wonderful and really eye-catching too. Everyone at the potluck I brought them to loved them and said they were such a great idea. I made the mistake of putting Hugs and Milk Chocolate kisses in the oven at the same time, and the Hugs melted all over - so definitely watch your baking times! 1-2 minutes should be plenty. I also used peanut butter M&Ms for the tops, and they were delicious!
