Grands!® Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
I made a half recipe using just one tube of rolls for my little girls and me and we all loved these. I baked them in a large loaf pan and it did take a little longer than the recipe said, even with just half a recipe. They were a big hit and I'm sure I'll get requests for these again and again.

Chicken Alfredo Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
Wow, this is good! I used fresh, precooked green beans because one of my girls doesn't like broccoli. Actually I think I might prefer it this way, too! I also used a little pesto in place of the basil and I had a leek already cut up so I used that in place of the onion. When I melted the butter to top the biscuits I added some garlic powder making them garlic, Parmesan biscuits. I suggest you set the casserole dish on a sheet pan since mine boiled over a little bit. The Grands biscuits also had two Box Tops for Schools which my girls appreciated. So I changed it a bit to accommodate what I had on hand and my family's preferences but this surprised me with how good it is! We will certainly have this one again.

Trinidad Pelau

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
This is good. I found canned pigeon peas but I was afraid my little girls would decide not to eat any of it since they are one a "don't like beans" kick lately. So I skipped those but added peas. I adapted this to make it in my pressure cooker and it made the beef very tender. For each cup of brown rice, use 1 1/4 cup liquid. I added frozen peas at the very end and just stirred them in and let them cook while I poured drinks and got dishes ready. The slightly sweet taste and creamy mouth feel make a unique and delicious dinner. Thanks for sharing your heritage Triniredlocks.

High Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
The flavor is very, very good. I am not crazy about Dijon mustard but I decided to follow the recipe exactly so that I could rate it fairly as written and WOW, this was good! I didn't check the weight of my chicken so that is my fault but it took quite a bit longer than the 40 minutes indicated in the recipe. I think the description is a bit misleading. Between brining and preparing the chicken, the butter mixture and the potatoes, I couldn't make this on a workday even if it did finish baking in 40 minutes. I put green beans in with the potatoes and roasted them and both were delicious! Thank you, carabakescupcakes. I will certainly make this again and again. By the time the chicken was finally finished my little girls and I couldn't wait while I took a picture but we all enjoyed it. I will have to add a picture next time I make it.

Chef John's Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
The flavor of this is very, very good. It was a bit thinner than I would have liked and I used less water than the recipe called for. I should say that I served this as the main course for dinner so I wanted it hearty. I will make it again but I will use more potatoes and mash them to make a thicker, heartier meal. Be sure to taste before adding salt. With the ham and the chicken broth, I didn't need to add any.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
These pancakes are fabulous! I usually prefer thinner pancakes but I didn't realize until I tried these that's because thick pancakes are usually too dense and heavy. These are the thickest, fluffiest pancakes I have ever had and they are delicious. I had buttermilk that needed to be used so I used that. I'm not sure if that made the batter thicker, but I think so. It seemed really, really thick so I made one little test pancake and it was fine but I mixed a couple of Tablespoons more buttermilk in. Either way, the pancakes were perfect. Thanks, kris. I have a new AR favorite!

Caramel Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
I NEED to make this again! I made one to donate to church for a chicken BBQ so I didn't get to taste it but it smelled fabulous! I am the pie baker for family holidays so this will be the apple pie on our Thanksgiving table in a few weeks.

Caramel Corn Treat Bags

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
This is really delicious. I made it twice this month - once for the kids (OK, I'll admit, I ate a lot of that batch!) and again for treat bags for my little girl's birthday party. We added Autumn Mix, the mixed candy corn. I looked and looked for gummy worms to up the creep factor but couldn't find any! I'll make this again with other holiday and seasonal add-ins. The kids and I loved it. It stays crunchy for a long time in a sealed plastic bag.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
I made a double batch in a 9' x 15" pan to take in for the teachers at my girls' school I used pecans because I found that's what I had on hand. They are really great. I'll make a pan for us to keep at home soon. These are very moist but firm enough to pick up and eat but I might use more apples when I make them for us. They are perfect as is, though. I don't mean that as a criticism. Thank you for sharing BarbiAnn!

Crescent Dogs

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
I surprised my kids with these, wrapped to look like mummies, and they enjoyed them. They don't normally eat hot dog rolls - too much bread for little ones. But dipping their mummies into "blood" (ketchup) made for a delightful, frightful dinner.

Breakfast Quiches to Go

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
I made these for dinner tonight. I used grated cheddar, diced ham and green onions to use what I had on hand and what my family likes. This recipe is versatile and would make a quick weeknight meal with a tossed salad. I wish I had larger muffin tins - they would work well and I had a bit of a problem with the filling running over because apparently I filled them too full.

Real Strawberry Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
Oh, Candace, this frosting is really a treat!. For her birthday cake Hailie wanted "a vanilla cake with pink frosting and blue writing" so I decided rather than just making the frosting pink, I would make it delicious as well and this was the perfect answer. I can't wait to try it on a lemon cake - I think the combination will be wonderful. Thank you for perfecting this recipe and for sharing it.

Nutella ® Frosting for Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Oh, Alex, this is fabulous! I just made it at the hospice where I volunteer. Sadly, I don't have my camera with me so I can't post a picture. Oh wait! Guess that means I have to make it again at home!!. Thanks again, sweet Alex. This is a confection as well as a frosting. Totally yummy!

Linda's Mom's Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
Five stars and three thumbs up from my girls and me. This is easy and delicious so who could ask for more? I used a chocolate cookie crust and we loved it that way. When the filling was warm, I thought I might add more peanut butter next time (and I will make this again and again) but it seems more pronounced when chilled. I also used a store brand PB this time and I think a better PB will yield better results. I need to make pies for a chicken BBQ at church nest weekend and I am sure this will be oen and that it will be a popular choice. Thanks, Linda2d for sharing!

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
I volunteer at a local hospice cooking once a week for the residents. I made this meatloaf today with twice baked potatoes and a banana cream pie. My mother never made a glaze on meatloaf but I know most people find it essential so I made this. It is really, really good! The glaze really makes it delicious. One resident doesn't like onions so I used onion powder and garlic powder. I omitted the bouillon granules but added some Worcestershire sauce and some pepper. It is very good and I will be making it again and again for my family. I know my little girls will like it. Thank you, Delia. Well done!

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Quick, easy and delicious. What more could you want? I saw Morgan's picture of this and decided to try it. Then I nearly forgot so I threw it together at the last minute. My little granddaughters and I all loved it! Thanks for a great cornbread recipe.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
This is great! After reading the reviews I wanted to make sure I didn't get it too sweet. I frequently find drinks like specialty coffees that are mixed by a barista to company specs too sweet. I made the sugar syrup as directed although you don't have to boil it, just heat it until the sugar dissolves. I made the syrup last night and chilled it overnight. It took 10 medium lemons to yield 1.5 cups of juice. I ended up using about 3/4 of the sugar syrup as I mixed the juice and water, I added the syrup to taste. Using refrigerated lemons and water along with the refrigerated syrup lets you enjoy the lemonade immediately. This is somewhat labor intensive for the amount it makes - not really enough for a party because it's SOOO good. But I made it as a treat for our 4th of July picnic and it was a nice treat. I'll definitely make it again.

Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
I am not a fan of sweet pickles but I had seen this recipe recommended on the buzz and I decided to give it a try. I have to join in the chorus of praise. This recipe turns cucumbers into crunchy, cold slices of heaven on a hot summer day! After I made them I couldn't stop eating them. Seven cups sounded like an awful lot of cucumbers but it's really not that many. I used more garlic than the recipe called for because I like it anyway and my garlic was getting a little old. I will definitely be keeping these around and can't wait to share them with friends and family. I think I'll try them with English (seedless) cucumbers or I'll just scoop the seeds after slicing the cucumbers lengthwise but that's a purely personal preference. Thanks for sharing, Gary.

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
This is fabulous! Read Christine's review - the first one. It does take some work and more time than I thought to get the egg yolk mixture to 160°. I volunteer at a hospice as a cook and I made this and Cheese Souffles today (another AR recipe) and our residents really enjoyed both! This is rich and, indeed, heavenly! The egg yolk mixture gets very, very thick so those folks that commented that their mousse wasn't thick enough hadn't cooked the egg yolks enough. Keep the temperature low and keep stirring it (I used a whisk). I will make this again when I want to treat someone. It's definitely an indulgence!
