Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I loved these, but surprisingly the kids didn't really take to them. Too unfamiliar I suppose. I'd assumed they'd devour them. I took some to my neighbors to try and they devoured them, asked for the recipe right away and made a batch for themselves that very night. I used about 1 1/2 T of sugar and since I can only buy corn in 15 oz cans, I just used that whole amount. Also, I don't have shortening, so just used margarine and it worked out great. Dusted them with powdered sugar afterwards. I kept trying in vain to get them to be rounder. Tips anyone?

Simply Potatoes® Cheesy Hash Browns

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
My husband LOVES this recipe, which we found on the package. That version didn't include the topping. We've experimented with various cream soups and really like the creamy green chile soup. It adds a spiciness that we prefer. It is very greasy, so he doesn't get this often, poor guy. Also, the very firm texture of the potatoes, even after cooking can take some getting used to.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
My husband loved this recipe the first time I made it according to the recipe. I thought the filling and frosting was too sweet, so I have found different recipes for those two, but overall an excellent recipe. I'll be making these for Christmas morning.

Peanut Butter Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
Made these when some of my husband's friends came over and they were inhaled. I had to stash some away in a baggie so I could be sure my girls got some the next day. Didn't need to change a thing. I am not much of a baker, I prefer to cook, but these were truly idiot-proof!

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
My husband said he wanted a bread pudding for Christmas dessert, so I gave this one a try. I made it exactly as directed and we thought it was so good with a little freshly whipped cream. I wish the recipe divided more easily as it was too much for our small family. I didn't care for it cold - the taste was alright but the texture I thought was not that pleasant. Overall though I give it 5 stars because it was so wonderful and full of gooey bubbly goodness fresh from the oven. The smell was out of this world too.

Mozzarella Meat Whirl

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I did my best to seal the ends, but the cheese leaked out through little tears in the sides. I think it will roll better if I grate it next time. My hubby does not like onions and loves cheese, so this was a meatloaf recipe he actually ate and said he wouldn't mind eating again. Although i followed suggestions to reduce the amount of water in the sauce, I just didn't care for it and will try something different next time.

Laura's Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
This has become my favorite way to make potatoes and it's so easy to whip up a double batch when company is coming. The only change I make is to use garlic powder instead of fresh because I think the fresh has a tendency to scorch, but it is good both ways.

Jalapeno Poppers of Champions

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
These were great. Like others, I used real bacon, which I precooked a bit. I also blanched the peppers in simmering water for two minutes as mentioned in another recipe's review. Baked at 400 degrees 'til done. By precooking the peppers and the bacon, I cut down on smoke and everything cooked through at the same time.

My husband who doesn't like rice as a general rule, loves this stuff and it's so easy to throw together!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
I made this exactly as directed and it really lives up to all the great reviews. I also used my mini-loaf pan for this to give as gifts and everyone loves them.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
This was just OK to me. I followed the recipe exactly, but the seasoning just seemed kind of bland to me and the family wasn't impressed. I love onions, but even to me, the onion was overpowered, maybe because the rest seemed bland. I don't think I'll try this one again & will keep looking for a good lettuce wrap recipe.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
Love this recipe and use it anytime I want to make minestrone. I add extra zucchinni and omit the spinach. I also add a can of diced tomatoes with garlic and oregano. Delicious!

Royal Icing III

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This recipe works great. I don't have much experience decorating cookies, but this worked perfectly. My only thing is that it sounds like it would make a lot, but it goes really fast, so I would suggest making a double-batch. We used this for gingerbread houses and it works great. Amazingly, the kids actually thought it tastes great!

Spicy Glazed Pecans

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I made these for Christmas and served them with a salad of greens, sliced green apple, thinly sliced cheddar with a raspberry vinaigrette from this site. I did reduce the cayenne to 1/4 tsp and the mixture dried out when cooking (perhaps because of our altitude?), so I just added a little bit more water. Otherwise, it worked perfectly and I loved it. My kids actually ate these too and they are very picky.

Red Raspberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This worked really great with a salad of greens, cheese, & sliced green apples. I am only giving it 4 stars because I ended up getting sick of it because of its strong flavor and threw about half of it away. Great for company, but the flavor, for me, just wouldn't work for a frequent option.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
The taste was pretty good, but the texture was greasy and grainy and I followed the recipe very precisely. I didn't use cake flour as others suggested since it is so expensive, but perhaps that would've helped. We ended up throwing it all away. Such a waste and a disappointment as I really wanted my husband to enjoy this Christmas treat!

Chimichurri Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This is wonderful on beef. I just loved it so much. My friend from Argentina really enjoyed it and her husband ate so much and loved it so I sent the rest home with him. To me that was a great success and I was so pleased to treat them to something they really enjoyed. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Worked great and I was able to freeze half for later. You can't tell the difference between this recipe and the kind you buy in a bottle. Terrific!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
To me, this was just OK. I don't think there's nearly enough cheese and it was just so heavy with all the meat. I think it's just my personal tastes that I prefer a lighter version of lasagne. It was very expensive too, so I guess I expected it to taste out-of-this world and so I felt a bit let down.
