Old English Cream Pie Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2015
Fantastic! Scaled recipe down to a fourth ... perfect for dear hubby & I. Love the process of combining the sugar and cornstarch with the egg ... I usually combine it with the milk first. Found this method to be much easier in controlling the temp of the eggs. Thanks so much for recipe!

Caribbean Chicken Grill with Pineapple Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2015
Love love love the pineapple salad - it really made the dish. As others have mentioned, the chicken itself was rather bland (which was surprising as I marinated it a good 2 hours). This would be delicious with a teriyaki type sauce to go along with the chicken and (in our case) the rice we served along side.

Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2015
As written, these are just too sweet for our taste. A half cup of honey to 2 cups of oats is a bit much. I shaped and baked in bar mold (6) - would be better making them thinner, so next time make 8 in mold; I like the concept, but will try cutting some of the honey with maple syrup and a little oil to scale the sweetness down. I baked for 10 minutes and they were a little too soft, but as I mentioned that was using a bar mold and they were fairly thick...scaling down to 8 and baking for 10 minutes should work out fine next time.

Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2015
OMG these are SO good and SO easy! I love love love this recipe! Because people mentioned they were bland, I went ahead and curdled my milk with vinegar. Used regular flour with a scant T of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of salt. I came out with enough for 6 beautiful bisci-rolls (which is what I'm going to calls these from now on ... beautifully soft interior like a roll, with a biscuity type exterior) using around 1 1/4oz per. Baked at 400 for 10 minutes and they were perfectly done. I LOVE these! I went from pantry to out of oven in like 14 minutes. Note to self, next time drop bp down to 1 1/2 tsp ... I'm getting a little aftertaste there.

Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2015
I was worried about having to adjust the ingredients to fit my pan (16x11.5) coupled with the fact I've never made a sheet cake before ... but it worked wonderfully. I used an adjusted serving size of 40, keeping my 1/2 cups loose...also used half coffee/half water mixture instead of plain water. I thought I was prepared for the frosting having read it set up quickly, but man, I didn't realize just how quickly it set up and ended up with lumps of powdered sugar. Will make sure to sift as others suggested next time. Cake itself was perfect with 6T of cocoa powder ... moist and yet not too dense (I was worried about it being *too* brownie like). In short, absolutely delicious and will definitely make again.

Reservations

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2015
I tried this last night and it was an absolute disaster! DH moan and groaned the entire time, becoming especially obnoxious when I broke out his ties (turns out he's not a fan of being trussed up like a turkey) ... the heel (being thin) snapped in two while attempting a gracious exit from the vehicle ... additionally, while visually appealing, the overall cost of the meal was prohibitive. Thanks for the suggestions, but don't think we'll make again :)

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2015
Sausage heavy ... but then again, it's a Bob Evans Sausage recipe so can you blame them? Cut sausage in half and/or double gravy. Either way, with cracked pepper and a dash of crushed red peppers, it's delicious!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2015
Never in my life have I had baked chicken turn out so moist and tender. Never. When I told DH we were having Parmesan Couscous and Artichoke Chicken for dinner, he make strange gagging sounds and tried to convince me he had a prior engagement with his dentist and couldn't make it home in time for supper. After much rolling of eyes and literally holding his nose like a 6 year old while trying to get him to take the first bite (I mean really - it's not a pretty dish straight out of the oven), he finally broke down ... and ended up having three plates. I did use a marinated artichokes, a combo of mayo & sour cream and sprinkled the top with bread crumbs for the last 10 minutes of cooking to brown it up some. Oh - and now I understand what others meant when talking about water forming on the bottom of the pan - but it was no big deal and I simply drained it off. Great great recipe - thank you so much for sharing.

Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2015
Husband went nuts over this. I do think come summer time the chicken would be better grilled and then sliced and served over noodles - but it was fine when made as directed. I did give the chicken a good rub of Cajun seasoning before cooking; I also added a sprinkling of dried red peppers, some parsley, and used 1 cup stock and 1/4 cup half & half as it was getting ready to expire. I was worried the sauce was too thin, but it thickened up nicely after sitting a bit. Thanks so much for recipe :)

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2015
Ye gods, wonderful! I combined two recipes - Mini Cheesecakes 1 and Mini Cheesecakes III using the graham crust recipe from III and the cream cheese recipe from I. My only change was to a) cut recipe down by 3/4th (just hubby & I) and b) to add a dollop of sour cream to mix. Baking time was perfect and I had no problems whatsoever with sticking. Oh - and my cream cheese was pretty sweet so I cut sugar down by about half. A 4th of the recipe using 4oz cream cheese gave me exactly 12 mini cherry cheesecakes. Thank you so much! :)

Apple Hand Pies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2015
I know people will hate me for this, so my apologies in advance, but I wanted to make cherry turnovers (without frying) and had no idea how to do it. I used a prepackaged crust I had to get rid of and canned cherries (blech, I know), but for the record baking method was spot on. Cut dough into quarters, rolled out, and finished as directed for above pies. Husband loved. Can't wait to try it with fresh apples.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2014
I've never had much success with bar recipes, and unfortunately these were no exception. They weren't bad ... they just didn't (as someone else mentioned) wow us. A tad too crumbly - and I was careful to mix butter in thoroughly. Thanks so much, tho.

Muffin Tin Potatoes Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
I'm giving this a 5* rating, primarily because a) the cheese sauce is simply wonderful and b) any problems I had were probably of my own making. I used mandolin to slice potatoes 1/8" thick, then layered half into jumbo sized muffin tins (spreading 1/2 of sauce in middle as others suggested). Because I had increased the size of the tins, I decided to go ahead and bake covered for 20", then uncovered for adt'l 20 minutes. My potatoes came out more steamed and ween't crunchy on the edges at all ... so I wouldn't suggest covering them next time. We both agreed there wasn't enough sauce to suit our tastes - again, probably because I had increased size of tins. I think next time I'll try dividing into 3 ramikins with more sauce *or* (now here's a brilliant idea) make 6 regular size cupcake tins with the same amount of sauce. I didn't find any lack of flavor whatsoever and was quite pleased with the taste ... just need to work on the consistency part. Thanks so much for recipe!

Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2014
Delicious! Half I made into Strawberry Santas, the other half I simply stuffed. The kiddos loved them, the men devoured them, the women raved. I didn't fine them time consuming to make at all and will definitely prepare again. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Chinese Restaurant Style Hot Mustard

Wonderful! It was just hubby and I so I just spooned about a tablespoon of ground mustard into bowl and then whisked in water until it reached the right consistency. Husband went absolutely nuts over this stuff. Thank you SO much for recipe!

Jennah's Famous Peanut Butter Blossoms

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
Three (3) times I looked at this recipe ... Three times! Thinking to myself "Bisquick? Bisquick? Nooooooo way". And three times I came back, finally deciding oh what the heck - I'll give it a try. This was the EASIEST QUICKEST TASTIEST blossom recipe I've ever tried. No fuss - no frills - melt in your mouth delicious. I'm SO glad I came to my senses. Batter was a bit loose when I first made it - ended up throwing in maybe another quarter cup of baking mix (used the homemade stuff from AR recipe here), then let it sit in fridge for oh - maybe ten minutes. Eight minutes of baking was spot on (although I did leave them sit on the cookie sheet after pressing in the chocolate kiss while I prepared the next pan). So far I've already gotten 30 cookies ... will probably get another 10 out of them. Thank you SO much for recipe!
