Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
This is good and easy. I thought that it didn't seem like enough chocolate but it turned out well. I have a hint to make it easier: measure the condensed milk in a microwave safe measuring cup. then put the remaining milk (it will be 1/4 cup) and the chocolate chips in the measuring cup warm in a microwave to melt the chocolate chips. It doesn't take long because of the high sugar content so watch it carefully.

Classic Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
I volunteer at a local hospice by cooking. One of the residents asked for tapioca pudding this week and I used this recipe and it was wonderful. I probably used more vanilla than the recipe called for but otherwise, I followed it as written and it was wonderful. Thanks, Nicole!

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
I made this at the hospice where I volunteer and it is wonderful! Made just as written using boneless skinless chicken thighs and it turned out just perfect. Real comfort food and still nutritionally sound. Try this recipe!

Peanut Butter Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
This is very good. I used real popped popcorn (trying to economize). At first I thought it was going to be too marshmallow-ey for me because I am not a big fan of marshmallows but the taste of marshmallows seemed to mellow down. I did bake for 20 minutes or maybe a little more. I decided it would be better with a little more salt so I added a very small amount - maybe 1/4 tsp. I bet peanut butter varies in sodium level, though, so taste it before you add any. I think I will try it with crunchy peanut butter next time and I may toss some chocolate chips in after baking and then stir to let them melt around on the popcorn. I think I may send some of this in to my granddaughter's class for snack (they don't have any peanut allergies, thank goodness). UPDATE: I realized after writing this that the microwave popcorn would be salted - that's why I had to add salt when I used regular, natural popcorn.

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
These are tasty and look impressive, too. It takes a bit of time to form the crusts so plan accordingly but they are worth the effort. Thanks, Weeble, these will be on my holiday "mini-pie and tassie plate".

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I have made this several times - can't believe that I never reviewed it until now. I make this in a slow cooker. It's wonderful to come home to especially on a chilly day. I added some chicken flavored, low sodium "Better Than Bouillon" today because my ham was not very flavorful. I also had one ear of leftover corn on the cob so I cut the kernels off and added them, It added a subtle sweet note that was good. Nice and rich and filling. A meal in a bowl.

Cheddar Onion Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
I used green onions as other reviewers did and I also needed to add an extra splash of milk. I am lactose intolerant and didn't want to buy buttermilk just for this recipe so I put a Tablespoon of cider vinegar into a measuring cup and then added enough lactose-free milk to make the one cup needed. These biscuits are really delicious. The perfect accompaniment to my "wow, Fall is here" chili.

Yummy Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I made this today at the hospice where I volunteer. I used 3/4 cup sugar in the batter and 3/4 cup in the dry topping. It was slightly tart and delicious. I like the way the dry topping makes the batter crisp on the top. I will definitely use this recipe again at home.

White Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Very good! I left the walnuts out because my granddaughter doesn't like them but I think they would be GREAT with them. I used the zest from a whole medium orange and think I'll use two next time for more orange flavor. I also think I'll try them with half or even all chocolate chips. I really like the combination of orange and chocolate. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
I love the cider donuts that are available in the Fall so I tweaked these muffins to resemble them. Not a huge fan of nutmeg, I substituted cinnamon for the nutmeg in the batter. Next time I think I will add a pinch of nutmeg along with a teaspoon of cinnamon. I also substituted cider for the milk. The result is wonderful! I did have butter left over after dipping the tops so I will melt less for that. In accordance with some other reviews, after dipping the tops, I rolled the entire muffin in the cinnamon and sugar mixture and as a result I ran out just before the last muffin! So I'll be a little heavy-handed with that next time but that's because I altered the recipe, not because the recipe was faulty. I made these little gems so that I can take some with me tomorrow to an interview for a volunteer position cooking at a local hospice. I hope they lke them as much as I do!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
This was delicious!I used it on a chocolate cake - my favorite is the one on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can. I put this between the layers and on top and then colored some green and made pine trees and added gummy bears for a pine forest. Beat this frosting for quite a while and you'll get fluffy peanut butter goodness!

Caramel Macchiato Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
I had heard others rave about this and couldn't wait to try it. It turned out wonderful! I had three bananas that needed to be used so I used all three. I also have instant espresso so I used that. It is moist and delicious. I read on the Buzz that others had the glaze turn out crunchy. Make sure that you lower the temperature and just simmer for three minutes. Otherwise, you'll make penuche. I was taught to always add vanilla at the end off the heat to preserve maximum flavor so I did that in the glaze. I want to try this recipe again using pumpkin puree in place of the bananas. I bet that will be great, too. I will update my review and let you know!

Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I love basil so I had to try this dressing and it did not disappoint. Nice balance of sweet (honey), sour (vinegar)and spicy (basil). This will be a staple in my house throughout the summer when fresh basil is readily available. Thanks NEERONDOGS!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
mmmm, mmmmm, mmmm, mmmmmm and again, mmmmm. I am a Yankee born and bred but I have spent quite a bit of time in Atlanta and this is IT. Southern sweet tea at its best. I had heard about using baking soda to make clear iced tea and it sounded odd to me but just a tiny pinch yields a crystal clear tea with no discernible flavor. Adjust the sweetness after the first batch if you want to but try it first as written. It really is a treat.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
I just mixed this up and I can hardly wait until it has time to sit and get better. When I tasted it I wanted to just keep eating! I added some pepper just because but otherwise followed the recipe. I know I will be making this again and again this summer. Thanks for a great recipe, Sandi.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
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.

Ruby Drive Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Really quick and delicious. This was perfect for a hot evening since it's one pan and cooks quickly. I don't really like dijon mustard but I wanted to be true to the recipe so I added it. You can't detect it specifically and it probably did add to the overall taste so I am glad I put it in. I did add onion powder and garlic powder but it probably didn't need it so don't sweat it if you don't have any. Make it as written and enjoy! UPDATE: I now have custody of my 6 and 7 year old granddaughters. I was afraid these might be too spicy or tangy for them. I don't find them too spicy or tangy but I fixed them without the hot pepper and held my breath and my girls LOVED them! Fix them, serve them, enjoy them. This recipe is a winner.

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Very, very good. I browned the spices in a dry saute pan as another reviewer recommended. I remember seeing an Indian chef do this on tv. I also added julienned green and red peppers. This may not be authentic to classic Indian curry but I am sure that Indian housewives add their own touches to dishes too. Made it a bit more healthy and added color. I found that it needed some salt but curry powders vary so be sure to taste your sauce and adjust accordingly. I served it over Jasmine rice.

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I made this for Easter dessert and it tastes great! Mine got a little juicy but I think that's because my berries were big so I cut some of them in half. I think whole berries would have held up better. I will definitely make it again so I will use smaller whole berries. I also used my regular pie pan rather than my deep dish one and that was a mistake as well. I answered the phone just as I was ready to pour the cooked berries over the uncooked ones and I let the syrup overflow the edges of the crust! DOH! But my little granddaughters and I didn't mind at all because the flavor was delicious!
