Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I tried this recipe after "The Best Rolled Sugar cookies" were not as tasty and soft as the reviews stated. These turned out great. They are soft, rolled fine after 3 hrs. chilled with a dusting of flour or powdered sugar, easy to cut, and did not lose their shape when baked. I did use the 8oz of cream cheese, 3 1/4 cups flour, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp. baking powder as suggested by another. I used 1/2 cup of margarine and 1/2 cup of butter to equal the full cup needed. Will make again!

The Best Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
After reading reviews that said the sauce was more sweet than sour, I decided to reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 cup, substituted 1/4 cup of water for pineapple juice and added about 2 tbls of ketchup. It had just the right amount of sweetness. My 4 kids (13,11,9,6) usually don't like new recipes and can be very picky...but they ALL ate their meatballs up quickly and said they were a thumbs yummy! I agree! Thanks!

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
WoW! My perfect sugar cookie is one that is thick and soft, and good with or without icing. I have searched this web-site for "my" perfect sugar cookie and I believe I found it. I originally tried "Best Rolled Sugar Cookies" and found they were crunchy even when rolled thick and under cooked. Then I tried "Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies" they were soft with a hint of cream cheese flavor and sometimes got sticky when rolling...closer to what I was looking for, but not your regular sugar cookie. I decided to try these today and used 1/2 cup butter & 1/2 cup margarine everything else the same. Cooled for 3 hrs, rolled out w/flour perfectly. Mine were done in 8 min w/no browning around edges. They stay very light colored, firm enough to decorate and handle, but soft and thick..yummm! I ate w/o icing and they were awesome, not to sweet like store bought sugar cookie dough, although they would be just as yummy with icing. Thanks Georgie! Will definitely make this holiday season and ice with "Sugar Cookie Icing"!

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
Easy & delicious recipe! I used two 8oz cans of dough and halved filling amount, then layered as directed in 8x8 glass pan. I think i would have liked even more filling in mine, so I'm not sure about halving the filling for a 9X13 pan. Icing was great with the addition of some almond extract. Filling had perfect flavor ( i dislike a lemon flavor in cream cheese, but didn't notice it at all).

Golden Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
I have been making this dish for past 5 yrs from a Taste of Home magazine. Everyone loves it, especially with ham! The sauce has a wonderful rich flavor...I'm a fan of sour cream. The potatoes are not floating in sauce, so make extra if you like yours on the creamy side. I cut down on the butter and occasionally skip on making the topping with equally good results. TIP - Make sure your potatoes are completely thawed and bake for the full hour or your potatoes will not cook thoroughly.

Cream Cheese Bars I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
EXTREMELY easy to make, but are in need of modifications. I made according to recipe...except for replacing 1/2 cup powder sugar (ran out) with brown sugar. I used a yellow cake mix. Based on the ingredients in recipe I give it 3 stars. I agree with other reviews...these are WAY to sweet and bland. I couldn't even really taste much of anything BUT sugar. Definitely take other suggestions and cut out 1 cup sugar or increase cream cheese. Bottom crust is nice, similar to a sugar cookie, buttery & chewy. I will use crust for other deserts. I refrigerated overnight and had no problem cutting. I thought they were plain & boring looking, so I put chocolate on top of a few to liven up the appearance. Baked according to temp and time suggested with no problems. You can tell they are done when the top layer doesn't jiggle.

Pina Colada Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Made for a personal bridal shower and everyone drank this punch right up! I did not use the rum and personally enjoyed the little pieces of pineapple.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

First time to make this and I really liked it. My 4 kids did not enjoy it so much...only my teen ate hers. Left over were great, thank goodness! Probably make again for adult company.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
After making these, I now love sweet potatoes!! They were quickly gone at our Thanksgiving dinner. I can't wait to make these again for Christmas dinner. I reduced the white sugar slightly (1/3 cup) and used 7 potatoes. They were still sweet and perfect with the brown sugar topping.I plan to increase the pecans and topping next time. I'm going to use glazed pecans...yum!

Crunch Bar

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Yummy! I stuck with the original amounts of butter and brown sugar called for, because my pan could only fit 1 sleeve of crackers. My crackers were covered perfectly! If your pan requires you to use 1.5 sleeves or 2 sleeves of crackers, then it only makes sense to increase butter & sugar amounts as suggested by other reviewers. I boiled my buttery sugar mix for a full 3 min, until it was nice and thick. It set up quickly. I put my pan in the freezer to speed the process and used foil with non-stick spray. The bars came out easily. Everyone LOVED these buttery crisp bars! They are absolutely joining my cookie/bar tray and would make a great holiday gift for neighbors, friends or work!!

Irresistible Double Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
Easy to make if you have the ingred. and pretty yummy for a healthy muffin. The adults who tasted these enjoyed them enough to eat more than one, but were warned they were healthy before trying. The little ones also enjoyed, but the teenagers did not like them. I would make again and share with those who appreciate the healthy ingredients. I did feel they were a tad dry and some of the little kids said they tasted like oatmeal.

Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Super easy! The condensed milk gives it a slight caramel flavor. Stays firm and taste best when kept refrigerated..gets very soft when left out to snack on.

Apple Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
These are awesome! They did not come out chewy, as others have mentioned theirs did, I believe the key is to soak them for 30 min. as stated. I smeared cream cheese on each tortilla before adding apples. Next time I will also sprinkle on some pecans. They are delicious and very sweet. I could only eat 1/2 an enchilada. Would be great with ice cream. Thanks for this great recipe!

Brownie Mallow Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Most important TIP: let the marshmallows cool before pouring the chocolate mixture on! If the marshmallows are warm you cannot spread the thick chocolate layer very easily and they will not be pretty. 2 Tip: Cook your brownies however you like them...fudge-like (my kind), cake-like, crunchy...it is whatever makes YOU happy. 3 Tip: If you like more of a creamy marshmallow layer use marshmallow cream. If you like more of a soft chewy layer (my preference) use reg marshmallows. EVERYONE loved these and they were super easy! I refrigerated mine for 2-3 hours and had no problem cutting them strait out of the fridge. The fudge brownie, chewy marshmallow, and crunchy top remind me of the different textures you find in candy bars...yum! My large family loves sweets so we had no problem finishing them off. They are sweet, but isn't that the point :o) Enjoy!!

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
Impressive! My crock-pot died on me, so I was forced to use my oven and I'm so glad I did. The roast was super tender...perfect. I can't wait to make for company. I used what I had on hand, cream of celery, mushroom gravy mix, and Dr.Pepper. I didn't notice a sweet taste and neither did my kids. Everything was so flavorful!

Ham A La King

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Excellent! I wasn't sure if I would like the sauce since it called for American cheese, which i despise, but it turned out delicious. I omitted the black olives and parsley (didn't have on hand) and added 1/2 cup Sharp Cheddar...perfection! I also used canned peas and my cubed ham was frozen, so i cooked the sauce a few minutes longer to make sure everything warmed up. Definitely follow the pastry directions and preheat the oven, so the pastries rise properly. I had extra sauce left, even after over filling the pastries. I will use it up on some Texas toast or rice...yum! My kids also gave the meal a thumbs up.Thanks for the super easy, delicious recipe Jean!

Honey-Garlic Angel Hair

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Different, but delicious! You can definitely taste the sweetness, so do not try this if you aren't a sugar bug :o) I love this recipe and so does my teenage daughter, but my younger children do not. I add extra Parmesan cheese and think it pairs well with chicken and green beans.

Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
OMG! Sooo Yummy & Comforting & Easy! I wanted to try something new and this soup was not a let down, you will not be disappointed! 3 out of my 4 kids gave this a thumbs up. I replaced the half-n-half with 2% milk and it was still super rich & creamy. I also cut back on the Old Bay (1tbs) and added 3/4 cup baby shrimp. Great with slices of toasted, buttered, tuscan bread. I think the addition of sauted onions in the "melting butter" step would be nice. Thank you Karyn!!!

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
I have been using "sugar cookie icing" recipe on this site, and liked it just fine, but decided to try this one out of curiosity. Taste the same...only difference I noticed is this glaze sets up faster and is a little thicker (not so runny like). I think I will continue to use this recipe due to it setting faster. Thanks!
