Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2015
We love this soup but since the tortellini always seems to suck up the broth, I would suggest using at least 6-8 cups of broth. I usually use a big can of crushed or diced tomatoes with basil rather than chop tomatoes. Highly suggested!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
Thought these were good. We just bought a waffle iron so this was our first time making them and we really don't have anything to compare it to. Everyone thought they were good...made as directed.

Lemon Cupcake with Blackberry Buttercream

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I'm only rating the frosting because I didn't make this recipe for the lemon cake. The frosting was fabulous! I did add about another 1/4 cup of blackberry jam and it did soften it up a tiny bit. It was a crowd pleaser and will be a repeat!

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
I have reduced the oil to 3/4 cup and added 1/2 cup applesauce. Got rave reviews. Frosted with the Basic Cream Cheese Frosting recipe from this site. Have made several times and it will be my go-to recipe!

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
I added about 5 1/2 cups of sugar to make it stiffer. It's hot and humid today! Have it in the fridge so I can then frost it since it's still a little soft but the taste is fabulous and I'm not a cream cheese fan. Will use this again and again!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
I haven't made this version but it's similar to a recipe that my WW leader gave us years ago. Hers didn't have chicken (although I've added it myself on several occasions) and instead of black beans, she added a can of FF refried beans (the Zesty Salsa kind so it adds a little kick). The refried beans make it thicker. I'm sure they are both great and super healthy!!

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
Used on a chocolate bundt that wasn't that sweet so this was just the right amount of sweetness to balance it. Used a tablespoon of butter & corn syrup as others have suggested. Would definitely make this a keeper!

Corn On The Cob (Easy Cleaning and Shucking)

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
My Mom sent me a YouTube video of an older man making corn like this and I decided to try it and it works just like this recipe says. The only down side is that you do have to cut off one of the ends, which I like to use as my handle but at least I don't have to peel them anymore!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
Tried these before and didn't love them but wanted to give them another try with a little bit more vanilla and using powdered sugar to roll out. Even though I refrigerated the cutouts, they still spread. Not the best I ever made.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
I'm with the rest of the negative reviews. I don't get it. Followed the instructions using a tub of cream cheese frosting and refrigerated overnight. They were still mushy. I didn't even bother doing the chocolate coating. I didn't want to waste it because I new from the taste of the rest that there were not worth it. I've seen recipes with cream cheese instead of the frosting. Maybe those might be better? Glad I didn't make and send them to my son's school.

Master Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
Didn't have the rapid yeast so followed the instructions for the regular one and used the herbs in the crust. Thought it was pretty good. It was a little bland so next time I would add more salt and maybe a little sugar/honey. I made it a little thicker than I wanted so next time, I would use a bit more than half for thin crust.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
This was a crowd pleaser. I did use 32 oz of ricotta, two eggs and added some cooked chopped spinach. Mixed the parm into that mixture. Needed some salt and pepper. I layered the ricotta mixture in between two pasta layers that I had mixed with the sauce and since I had some meatballs frozen with the sauce, I sliced those and put those in there. My guests really loved it and it made enough for a small army!

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I will preface this by saying that my boys demand the German Pancake on Sundays so getting them to try this was work! I made this using a Panettone that I had bought for Christmas and it was delish! We aren't huge french toast fans but this will be my go-to recipe when I do make it. Try it with Panettone!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
We love this biscotti the best. The only change I make is to use 1 cup each of cranberries and pistachios. I think as written, it would be too many nuts for us.

Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
I had few changes. I had to use all white flour due to an allergy to whole wheat and not sure if the sub is actually 1:1 but that's what I did. I didn't follow directions and made into one log due to the fact that I wanted long biscotti. My own error was not baking longer because part of it was undercooked. Not so bad when you have to bake two more times but it made it harder to cut without chunks coming out and still maintain a nice looking cookie but that was my error. The reason for the 4 stars is because it needs more spices. It was a pretty bland gingerbread and needed more of a kick. Would make again with more spices.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
We thought this was pretty good but I think I would make more of the toffee next time. I needed a little more than a ream of crackers to cover the bottom of the pan and the toffee didn't cover to the edges. Someone said it would spread the the edges and I think it did a little but but not enough. I liked the taste but not that I could totally tell that it was toffee on top of saltines! Next time, I would crush the crackers or not use them at all. I think I would also prefer milk chocolate to semi-sweet. With a few changes, I think it could really be something I'd make again.

Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Really liked these! As other suggested, I added about 1 1/2 tsp vanilla and oiled my hands before rounding them into balls. Because I made them a little bit on the smaller side, I was about to do about 30 for my son's Halloween party but a bigger one would certainly do 20 as stated. I didn't find them too sweet. I did break up the batches in 1/2 so it would be easier and was a little light handed on the first batch with the sugar mixture so I probably put a little bit too much on the second batch but I'm sure they're still great! Would make again but doing them by myself took hours since I wanted them to look pretty for the class.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
I think I was expecting it to be more chocolaty. If I was blindfolded, I would guess banana bread with chocolate chips. It was good but I would add more cocoa next time.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
My husband RARELY gives a 5 rating but did for this recipe! Technically, these are burritos because of the flour (not corn) tortillas but since burritos are my fave anyway, doesn't matter to me! I didn't have the green chilies, the garlic or onion powder so I had to leave those things out but it was still great. My 5 yr old wasn't keen on it but my husband and I loved it. My husband thought it wasn't spicy enough but it was plenty for me without those chilies. It's hard pleasing everyone when it comes to anything spicy. Will make again!

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
Smelled great but the flavor was not very strong. I admit that I omitted the liquid smoke because I hate the taste. Disappointed.
