Best Ever Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
Have made this many times, exactly as written. Very, very good, and I would NOT omit the carrots! Fresh parsley into the mix is a bonus - w/ the carrots add nice color to an otherwise brown dish. The topping is delicious too. Try this! For those that favor more traditional meatloaf recipes, this is a very nice alternative!

Mom's Fabulous Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2013
Made recipe exactly as written. Filling was good, but my biscuits were half raw after 45 minutes. Loved the idea of this, but would probably stick to the pillsbury crust for my carbs- just as easy and I have never had it not cook.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2013
I have made this many times, and it is great as written. I always double or triple the recipe (if you are going to mess up your kitchen you might as well have an extra meal or two out of it). They freeze beautifully once baked and cooled. I make up ziploc bags of 12. Also, they are esp delicious if you add a pound of italian sausage to the ground beef. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
I have been using this recipe for mashed pots for years. The order in which you add ingredients matters in this recipe. If you like creamy mashed potatoes, mash the potatoes first, by themselves, then add the remaining ingredients. Also, to take these over the top, sauté grated or finely chopped onion in butter, and add to potatoes with cream cheese and sour cream (1/2 medium onion to 3-4 tablespoons butter). So good.

Toll House® Blonde Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
I have made this recipe twice so far. The 1st time exactly (EXACT. LY) as written. Great. The second time w/ 1 cup mini semi-sweet morsels and 1 cup milk choc chips (everything else the same). Great again! LOVE that it makes a lot. My daughter has a PN allergy, so I use other brands of choc chips with no issue (merp, can not use Nestle Toll House anything with cross contamination warnings). FYI, the dough will be thick; spread as best as you can to the edges of your pan, and it will rise/ fill in as it bakes. I used the pan called for, Baking PAM, and a bench cutter to get a precise edge/cut. These freeze beautifully. Wrap your cooled blondie in loads of plastic wrap, label, and freeze. Can not go wrong.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Been making this cake for awhile now to rave reviews, always a hit and you can keep the ingredients on hand. You can try variations of cake mix/ pudding (yellow cake mix w/ vanilla pudding, choc cake w/ cookies n cream pudding, etc.). Using 2 small boxes of pudding (vs 1 lg box) works fine, and mini chips DO work the best. I have omitted the chips before and sometimes get a cake that falls, sometimes does not??

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
As delicious and easy as others have said. HINT: instead of using lots of little saltines, I use large sheets of SALTED matzo cracker - easier to pour the caramel and spread chocolate chips over w/ less waste and mess!

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
5 stars for presentation! Kids and adults love this. I used the Cream Cheese Pound Cake III recipe from this site for the base here, and split one cake recipe into two small bundt/angel food pans for gifts (1 hour at 325). Mixed 6 colors and dropped evenly between the two pans. Also, I've split batter three ways (orange, green and white - no food color) for St Pat's day, and am making right now using spring colors for Easter. Lots of fun, thanks for sharing, and for the food coloring drop ratios (they work great)!

Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
Good old fashioned comfort food. Make as written, but I found cooking on "low" for three hours works perfectly, stirring every 30 minutes (any longer, even on low, and it started to get brown and gluey around edges, maybe my slow cooker is too hot?). Small pearl tapioca is key (NOT the quick cook!), and it tastes best using whole or 2% milk. Add vanilla after finished cooking and mix. Yum. Thanks for sharing!

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Used 1 stick butter, 1 box (12 oz) rice krispies, and 1 large bag jet puff and followed directions exactly, melting butter and marsh slowly - turned out great as others have said. Using these same proportions and directions I have found that you can use (and kids of all ages LOVE) different cereals (i.e. reeses, oreos, etc.).

Chilled Christmas Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Served at a ladies' cookie exchange and it was a hit exactly as written. "delightful, refreshing" were some comments, cinnamon in simple syrup was secret ingredient. It sounds weird, but tastes nice. I did double it for 12 guests, and had some leftover. TIP: I froze 2 layers of fresh cranberries in water in a decorative bundt pan to keep the punch cold in punchbowl (cranberries float so you fill half the pan with water, add berries, freeze, then do this all once more) - very pretty. May add pineapple rings next time.

Ricotta Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Have made these lots. The dough is a bit sticky. Make as symmetrical as you can when dropping, even though they do spread some to a round-ish shape when baking. I use one teaspoon full of batter (spoon, not measuring spoon). I got over 60 normal sized cookies. They seem to take about 10-12 minutes to bake (they should not look "wet" on top and be lightly browned on bottom). Un-iced cookies freeze well in ziploc bags.

Spicy Beef Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Good recipe w/ lots of flavor. VARIATION: Delicious using 2-3 lbs stew meat, cubed instead of the ground beef (meat is fork-tender after hours in the tomato sauce).

Banana Cake X

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
FOR THOSE W/ DAIRY ALLERGIES... This recipe works well as written using vanilla soy milk in place of milk (yes, add the lemon juice), and dairy-free 'BUTTER' spread in place of real butter (i.e. Spectrum Naturals spread). Cake was fluffy and moist; I cooked for 45-50 minutes. The middle did fall a bit, but this did not affect taste.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Easy, got rave reviews, and worked out as directed in orig recipe. Dough is sticky but not unmanageable. Wet hands. Used 1 cup pistachios and 1 cup mini choc chips. A keeper, thanks for sharing.

Raisin Crunch Cookie Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Good cookies and very nice gift. Be sure to use a quart jar to get ingr to fit. Also, you can lessen white sugar amount (1/4 cup still tastes good) to help get it all in the same jar. Cranberries in place of raisins, and an added 1/4 C choc chips worked well in this.

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
Delicious, and beautiful too. 1 cup each mayo, sour cream, and parm with 2 tablespoons sugar still tastes good, and provides ample and spreadable dressing. Also, added layers of baby spinach, red pepper, shredded carrots, and broc - very pretty color. Clear bowl a must. For those who hate frying bacon in pan like I do... place bacon, in single layer, on lipped cookie pan on top of parchment paper, and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or so until desired texture/doneness; cool and crumble for recipe.
