Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
Made exactly as instructed and it was fabulous! I had to make a large amount because my cake was so big. The sifting was a little bit time consuming but it was worth it. Fabulous!

Tomato Basil Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
This was pretty good! I wish I could give it 4 1/2 stars. I only had the brown rice pilaf so I had to cook it much longer and add chicken broth. I think next time, I would cover it part of the time to cook it faster. I didn't have fresh basil so I had to use dried. We'll certainly make it again!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
I kept recipe as written but only made 2 1/4 lbs of beef. Next time, I'd reduce the liquid. The reason for only 4 stars? It was too much vinegar! I would cut it in half because it was too strong. Otherwise, a nice quick meal. :)

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
They're all right. I probably won't make them again. I used 1/3 c oil as suggested on the Pillsbury box and they were pretty good. This is the type of cookie that stays soft and its cakelike. I think I prefer more of a crunch. Back to scratch for me. Yes, simple but still doesn't compare.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
I thought this was too moist. Way too much liquid and not enough spice. I did add the Worcestershire sauce like others suggested but it still needed more flavor. I also sauteed the onions. My husband loved it and gave it 5 stars...rare for him...but my rating was a 4 due to a little bit of lack of flavor.

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I used mini chocolate chips thinking that they would melt into the cake but that didn't happen. I actually only had 1 1/2 cups of mini so I had to use some regular. I got rave reviews from my family but I think I would cut down the amount of chips by half. I used sugar free pudding (the larger one) because that's what I had.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I'd actually give this 4 1/2 stars. When will Allrecipes allow us to do that? We loved the taste but I found the dough to be very sticky, even after refrigerating overnight. I did use the juice and zest of a lemon rather than the extract. As far as the Fruit Loop taste, my husband is a fan but didn't think they tasted like that and he gave the cookies 5 stars...which is rare for him. I had to lightly oil my hands to roll them. That's how sticky this batter was!

Italian Peas

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
This was a great recipe. My mom had about 4 servings. She was happy that I made so much. Very tasty!

Campbell's® Quick and Easy Chicken, Broccoli and Brown Rice Dinner

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I actually found this recipe in the coupon section of the paper and since it was so quick and easy, we decided to try it. I had bought the regular soup (not low fat or low sodium) and it was good. Could have used a little more flavor. There were alternate recipes, like reducing the water and using orange juice instead for an orange chicken. We'll try that one next. Kudos because it's a super quick meal and it has protein, veggie and a good carb! More flavor would have gotten another star.

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
Pretty tasty. I hate cumin so I left it out. I didn't love the consistency of the beef I guess because it had been in the crockpot all day. There's a cabbage roll casserole on here the I LOVE. This is similar except for the beans. This makes a lot. We'll be eating this for a week!

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Instead of the boullion and water, I just used chicken broth because it's the same thing. The recipe made a ton of veggies so I doubled the turkey, milk, flour and broth and made it in a 9x13. I didn't use a bottom crust, just the Pillsbury crust that you unfold (unroll). I'll make this again! My family loved it!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This is probably THE best bread that I bake for Thanksgiving/Christmas! It stays so moist. No need to change a thing. Thanks!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Made with brewed coffee for a more intense flavor and due to may reviews, switched the butter to butter flavored Crisco and it was still a little dry. I can't find a scratch cake that is as good as a box cake and not sure why I keep trying when the box is so easy! Sorry but I'll have to go back to box. This was tasty but it needs to be more moist.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Forgot to grease the pan but don't think it was a problem. Doubled the recipe and made a 10 inch, a 9 inch and a small one. I was worried about it all fitting in the 9 in because I'm not used to doing a deep cheesecake. My 10 in was on the top seemed a little dry, a little bit brown on top and had a huge crater (probably due to overbeating) but the smaller ones on the bottom came out nice and creamy (almost undercooked). I didn't use a water bath for any of them. With the help of an online video, I was able to patch up the crater to look like new with no topping! We ate the 9 in and everyone loved it (gave away the 10 in). Had added toffee bits but they were hard to find when all was said and done. Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
These were a nice change from white potatoes. I was looking for a recipe that didn't include marshmallows since sweet potatoes are sweet enough! And also wanted something that wasn't drowning in soup like some of the other dishes on my in-law's table yesterday. I added some onion and crushed garlic and thought that added some nice flavor. Would make again. Thanks!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Used this recipe for Halloween and I will be using it again for Christmas cookies. I loved that they dried shiny and hard. Beautiful!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
My husband, who never gives anything 5 stars, rated this one for me. I used butter and garlic powder because that's what I had and I really didn't measure, just "eye-balled". I also baked them at 300 degrees and shortened the time a little bit....about 45-50 mins. Yummy!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
I can best describe these as a muffin top! They really aren't a cookie. It's more like a pumpkin bread in the shape of a cookie. The taste was pretty good. Very moist so that's a plus. I'm a huge chocolate fan but to me, 2 cups of chocolate chips was a little excessive. I have to agree with the reviewer that said it wasn't an attractive cookie. LOL Back to regular chocolate chip for us!

Flavorful Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
Thought this was pretty good. We'd make again. I used a package of frozen stir fry veggies to make it easier.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
This was pretty good but was lacking a little zing. It did keep the chicken super moist and was easy to prepare. I found it was a little oily and it tasted like there was a weird coating. Perhaps if I cranked up the flame on the grill, it would have been a little crispier but I didn't want to overcook and dry them out. I think I would cut the oil a little bit and either marinate longer or add something extra to spice it up.
