Porcupines

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
My family LOVES this! Quoting my brother, "It tastes like it came from a restaurant!" I might consider using sweet onions as a trick. Maybe I'll experiment this with the slow cooker, too! Highly suggest, and can see making it agian! As for me, it is great. Personally, I prefer it without onions, but, hey, that's just me.

Buttercream-Coconut Cake Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
This recipe was great, although I did go by one review of doubling the butter (since I had no veg. shortening), and I didn't add any pecans. This recipe will defiantly be used again, and is HIGHLY suggested! It's AWESOME with a g-free coconut cake I've made today, too.

Thin Mint Cocoa

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
Yum! This is an easy-to-make recipe! I shared some with a relative of mine, and we both thought it was great! Although I didn't have any cocoa mix on hand, I decided use two Keurig cups which worked out great! I also happened to use the rest of my peppermint extract, since there was so little left in it anyways. This recipe is a definite keeper!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2013
This is a great recipe, weather for parties, or just for dinner at home. I do have some HELPFUL HINTS for some. 1.) Don't have bacon/don't want to waste your time cooking & waiting for the bacon to be ready? You can use bacon bits. Although smaller, they are handy so you CAN say you've put bacon in. 2.) If you don't have raisins, both raisins and grapes (grapes would need to be cut in half the shorter way) can work as well. 3.) Apple cider vinegar can replace the white wine vinegar.

Overnight Eggnog French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
This is a very, VERY good recipe, but I did make some changes. Due to being gluten-free (no flour), I used 2 loaves of "Three Baker's" gluten-free bread. I know it seems a lot of bread, but the loaves/slices of bread are fairley small, and I wanted to fill the glass pan. This recipe makes a GREAT Christmas Day brekfast!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
This is great! Juicy, but lacking SOME flavor. I totally suggest adding BBQ sauce, hot sauce, etc. to it just to kick up the flavor. I had it without any flavoring and I thought it was pretty good. I know for sure that I will make it again in the future!

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
This is a wonderful icecream recipe! I usually don't put in the chocolate chips because I put them in too early! Sometimes put in a little extra peppermint extract for more minty flavor. Great recipe overall, I give it a two thumbs up!

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Very easy to make. A trick for cooking this recipe in oil: put in 3 at a time to cook fast. I let the meat rest a night, and made it easy to do the dishes! I was planning to make the wrappers, but I didn't want a huge mess. This is a recipe that doesn't make more than 8 if you use a 1/4 of a cup for the carrots, lettuce/cabbage, and meat mixutre. Good for parties with knowing it came from you kitchen!

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
The PROS of this recipe are, 1.) these cookies were BOTH gluten- and dairy-free, perfect for my family and I, 2.) the cookies were easy to make. The CONS of these cookies are that, 1.) the cookies were a bit dry, and 2.) I had to cook them a bit longer than required, or they'll crumple as I tried to take them off the parchment paper. But why 5 stars out 5? They were gluten- and dairy free, which means a LOT, and they turned out better than the last batch of peanut butter cookies (with a different recipe for pb cookies) I made.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Great recipe! I just mix everything in the pan on the counter, not over heat, and when cook it, the heat is medium-high (but, hey, it's just me). For those who made it and it came out soupy, cook it until it's really, REALLY thick, almost lumpy. Trust me, I've made it for a while now, and the last few tries it has become soupy, but I just made it two days ago, and making it so thick it's kinda lumpy makes it. Have ALL faith in my suggestion, because it will come out smooth (when you eat it).

Sparky's Doggie Treats

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
Good doggie treats! My dogs LOVE them! It took awhile to melt the peanut butter, and the plate got too hot to touch. I don't mind making it, and easy to make.

Easy, Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
The family LOVED this! Can grow strawberries to save $$$ if you'd like. Very pleased that there was no chunks, and if I did put chunks in, I'd pick the chunks out. Yummy recipe for the summer!
