Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I made the recipe as written. I like peanut butter...I really do as does my 11 year old - who, 'mind you, likes EVERYTHING sweet...and most everything not sweet. But even he said no thank you to a second cupcake. We did not care for this recipe at all. I guess you have to practically LOVE peanut butter to tolerate this frosting. I really wanted to like this...it's just overpowering on devil's food cake.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
DRY DRY DRY DRY!!! I forgot to add an extra 1/4 cup of milk to this as suggested by other viewers...so I am rating the recipe as written. The flavor was good and it was for a kid's party - usually, they don't notice things like that...but I did...and I was embarrassed. I will try again with the extra milk and taste test at home.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
When I took this out of the oven, I couldn't WAIT to taste it, but I should have. I did wait until it cooled (well with the exception of what stuck to my fingers when I removed it from the pans). As soon as it was cool, I frosted, cut, served, and ate. I didn't feel any fireworks at all. It was really just okay for me (I watch too much American Idol!). So I cut 1/2 of the cake (3 layers btw), put it in another cake caddy to take to my elderly aunt, and put it all in the fridge. I got a little after 3 in the morning and decided I would try a small piece to see how I felt about it. It was AWESOME!!!! I think it just needs to sit a while. Also, it may be because I had tasted SO MUCH FROSTING when I did have my first piece, the sugar was so unappealing...I don't know. But nonetheless, I wish I hadn't already called my aunt and told her I was bringing her some cake before I realized how good it was!!! Well, I'm glad I did...I didn't need it anyway :-)

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
I am not a sugar cookie fan mostly because I prefer a soft chewy cookie...but I had all the ingredients and needed SOMETHING sweet :-) These were awesome...for a sugar cookie lol. I can understand how, for some, it may be a bit salty, but I didn't mind so much, although I will probably use less next time. Good cookie!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
Really good! Definately cut down the peppers/cayenne. I'm a chicken so omitted the jalepanos all together and used 2 fresh chopped serrano peppers and 1/2 tsp. cayenne in a batch and a half (we wanted leftovers for work). The spiciness was good for my family, and for lunch today, it was just a TAD bit spicier than last night but still did not overpower the dish! Last night, those that wanted it spicier dashed a little more cayenne pepper in their bowl. I topped with Mexican four cheese blend shredded cheese, dollop of sour cream, and chopped green onions and served with crescent rolls. YUM!!!!!

Jordan Marsh Style Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Okay, this was the 3rd blueberry muffin recipe I tried this weekend. The first, To Die For BBM, the second, some other I found on a blog with sour cream, and then this one. I won't be needing to find a 4th!!! I was so excited to have gotten it right this time! I used butter instead of shortening (personal preference). That was the only variation. Good recipe!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
I followed this recipe to the "T" and it wasn't very good. I gave it 2 stars for the topping...but even in that, I used less butter. They were not sweet enough for the berries I got from the farmer market, were flat despite me using a very little bit of topping on each muffin, and there lacking in flavor. The texture wasn't all that great either. I may try again just to see if I done something wrong...but right now, I have another muffin recipe in the oven b/c my family was so disappointed that these flopped. If I try again, I will repost.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
I made this wrong, but it was really really good. I used only 8 ounces of cream cheese and all the other ingredients stayed the same. I ran out of Vanilla before I got around to making the frosting for my strawberry cake, but it was still awesome. I am giving it a 5 because I'm sure it is with the vanilla. As I made it, it was, well about a 4.5 :-) I made filling for the cake with cheesecake instant pudding and whipping cream, but I really wished I had filled the cake with this frosting also. Next time, I certainly will!

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I gave this 3 stars because I didn't care for the ricotta cheese. I actually really like ricotta, but not in spaghetti. The parmesan and butter in the noodles tasted really good and I took others' advice and added a layer of sauce to the bottom of the pan. This really wasn't bad, but next time, I think I will omit the ricotta or use ALOT less.

Asian Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
It was good, just missing something. Maybe adding teriyaki sauce or something will heighten the Asian flavor. But still good. I used green onions and garlic powder and had them on english muffins with fat free cheese slices and lettuce.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
My family loved this as did I. I did not use 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom soup as suggested by other reviewers. Instead, I added 8 ounces of sourcream to the soup and mayo mixture. (don't do this unless you really like sour cream) But, 1 can of COM is definately not enough. Also, I used corn bread stuffing on top, cooked the broccoli in chicken broth, seasoned my chicken with garlic, old bay, and a little salt. SUPER!

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
My family asks for these every week...sometimes 2 or 3 times. My variations - double teryaki sauce, no garlic (didn't have it on hand, but I don't care for it much anyway), no cornmeal (I don't use anything to coat). SUPER!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
I tried some others after this one and this is by far the best. I will go back to using this one. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch them closely. They will easily over cook. I had to bake a few batches before I figured out the perfect time in my oven. 14 minutes for me, but I like my cookies almost "doughy" in the middle with a little crunch around the edges. They might not LOOK done, but after cooling, they will be perfect.
