Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
This is our new favorite. I always made basic scalloped potatoes which were good but took forever to cook through. These are perfect! I did as some suggested and boiled the chopped onions with the potatoes. I catered my son's wedding this past Saturday and made theses for 150 people and they were a giant hit! I just found the recipe two weeks ago and have already made them four times. And I think I'll make them again today. Good choice! And don't worry about the fat and calories. This is so worth it!

Banana Split Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
First off, the crust is missing an important ingredient and step. It needs about 1/3 cup of sugar mixed into the crushed graham cracker crumbs and it should be baked at 350 for about 10 minutes. This will set it up so it doesn't fall apart when cut. Let the crust cool completely before putting in the cream cheese mixture. Also, to fill up the pan, I used 3 8 oz. cubes of cream cheese, but the same amount of sugar called for. And I used more cherries on the top and left off the pecans. I didn't feel it needed the nuts. And I sliced the bananas and completely covered the cream cheese with the slices and used a larger can of pineapple. Very sweet but very good.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
These are delicious! Everyone I have made them for loved them! The second time I made them it was for work and a co-worker hates pecans, so I put toasted almonds on and they were great! But don't overcook the sugar mixture. It will harden up a little too much. And make sure you put them on parchment paper or foil before pouring the sugar mixture over. And for sure, put them on a cookie sheet with sides! The first time I made them they boiled over all over the stove. Lesson learned. Also, it helps if you put the bars back in the oven for a minute after you sprinkle on the chocolate chips. They spread easier. Yummy!

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
I bake banana bread quite often and wanted to try something different. This was moist and delicious and very easy to make. I made it exactly as the recipe called for and it was excellent!

Chicken Avocado Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2006
My husband is very very picky and so I was surprised when he absolutely loved this pizza! I brought a piece to a co-worker today and she immediately asked for the recipe. It was delicious! My son thought it was just okay, but I think he would have loved it too if I had put the cayenne on it, which I left off. I used an already roasted chicken bought at the store (they're so cheap!) and next time I'll use a little more cilantro. I also used half Monterey Jack and half Mozzarella cheese, using about twice what the recipe called for. An amazingly easy recipe! Oh, and I only oiled one side of the pizza. Oiling both sides sounded messy.

Best Breakfast Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2005
I followed the recipe exactly and they were amazingly soft and delicious! I took five dozen to work and everyone looked at me rather skeptically when I said they were low fat as I take sweet fatty goodies usually - they were gobbled up in no time! Warning though; they are very soft and will stick together so don't throw them in the cookie jar; layer with parchment or cellophane inbetween the layers. I will definitely make these over and over again.

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
This cake is quite yummy (I made it for my boss's birthday and several people asked for the recipe), but don't put it in a really detailed bundt pan as all the chocolate chips went to the bottom. When I made it in a plain bundt pan it came out fine (grease really really well with Crisco and flour). But when I put it in my new castle bundt pan with lots of detail, the top wouldn't come out of the pan because of all the chocolate chips. I even tried dusting the chips with flour and they still sunk to the bottom. So great on taste, but not so much on removal from pan.

Dana's Party Mix

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
Be prepared! This makes A LOT of party mix! Two of the really large round Tupperware bowls. Which is a good thing really. Very tasty and quite addictive. I made it for my 4th of July party and a lot got eaten, but there was so much I brought the leftovers to work the next day and when it was gone people were still looking around for the bowl. The only change I would suggest is adding more nuts. They kind of got lost in all the crackers and cereal.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie Logs

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
These are amazing! Melt in your mouth. The cookie itself was incredibly easy to make; dipping in the chocolate and nuts was a little messy, but well worth the work and cleanup. I brought 100 of these to work and they were gone in no time. Now one of my favorites.

Salmon with Dill

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
I'm rating this according to my husband's approval. Personally, I absolutely hate salmon! Which is almost illegal here in Seattle. But I made this for my husband son, who usually just puts teriyaki sauce on their salmon before they barbecue. My husband thought this was way better than the teriyaki, and although my son liked it, he preferred just plain teriyaki. I then made this for my annual 4th of July party, four large Costo size fillets, and they all got gobbled up in no time. So I guess it's a keeper and very easy.

Dill Pickle Appetizers

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
I made these for work and for a 4th of July party. Everyone loved them and gobbled them up. Easy and delicious. Something about the soft bread and the crunchy pickle appears to everyone.

Rich Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
These are wonderful! I like them even better than Magic Bars. I doubled the recipe and made them for work and they got gobbled up in no time. My store didn't have the Skors chips, so I used Heath chips instead and I'm sure it was just as good. And pretty easy.

Asian Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
I had never made beef skewers before but thought I would try them for my annual 4th of July party this year. I made about 30 of them and when I went to the barbecue to get one - they were gone! Devoured as they came off the grill! I had to make them again the next weekend just so I could try one. Delicious and so tender they melted in your mouth, just like everyone had told me at the barbecue. Easy to make and wonderful! Don't change a thing.

Garlic Crab Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
I made this for my annual 4th of July party and only about half got eaten. Had to throw the rest away. Too expensive to make for something that doesn't get eaten up. I'll stick with my Rock Bottom Asiago Cheese Dip recipe instead. Much cheaper to make and gets devoured everytime.

Buttermilk Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
My husband saw this recipe and said no way would he eat anything with buttermilk in it. But I went ahead and made it for a family dinner and didn't tell anyone else what was in it and they gobbled it up. Very good and very easy. I hate buttermilk myself but thought I would give this a try and glad I did. But like everyone else says, don't tell anyone what's in it or they won't eat it. I did talk my husband into tasting it and he admitted it was very good.

Bechamel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
This is now my husband's favorite pasta dish and my boys like it cause it has chicken instead of beef. I do leave out the cilantro and green pepper cause no one in my house likes those ingredients, but it's good and satisfying. Oh, and I just use dry dill weed instead of fresh. And last time I made it I didn't get to the store for the Italian tomato paste, so I used regular and a teaspoon of Italian seasoning and it was just as good.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
This is absolutely the best! I've been making cordon bleu for years as my boys love it, but this is the only recipe I use now. I don't usually like wine sauce, but this is amazing! Can't taste the wine really, which is what I like about it. Creamy and savory and delicious!

Nutella® Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2005
I had never tried Nutella but the little Italian girl on the food channel kept talking about how good it was so I bought some and found this recipe here. I am a chocolate pie lover and THIS IS THE BEST. I did cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup and it was plenty. I also used a regular baked pie crust rather than graham cracker because that sounded too sweet. I whipped it until it was as light as I thought I could get it in my big Kitchenaid mixer and it was perfect! Like a need a great chocolate pie recipe (apply to hips!)

Cashew Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2005
These are now my favorite cookies! They were wonderful. I took them to my sister-in-law who is a casher-lover like I am and she also decided they were her favorite. The frosting is perfect and sets up nicely.

Pecan Filled Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2004
Excellent cookie. Very buttery. Only drawback is they are quite soft and stick together a little when stored, but well worth the effort. Took them to work and everyone loved them!
