Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This recipe serves quite a few people. I warmed it up in the oven until the cheese melted. It served 12 people at a tennis tournament, 8 people at a poker tournament later that night, and there was still enough for two of us the next day. Everybody loved it! Plus, the melted cheese on top made it easy to travel with without the worry of making a mess.

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
This didn't turn out how I had originally expected. The bars without the frosting were perfectly moist after 25 mintues and had the perfect amount of flavor. I bought premade frosting to use. I taste-tested right after baking and was hesitant to use the frosting. I put frosting on a few squares, but it wasn't nearly as good and just eating them plain. I'm not sure if it would've been better with home-made cream cheese frosting or not. They were great all by themselves.

Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
I tried to follows others advice, but my biggest proble came with rolling the wheels. I tried multiple ways: 1. rolled a wheel after refrigerating, but the dough wouldn't stick together and I ended up with holes all over. I sliced it with a charp knife and inserted toothpicks to hold them together on thier sides. 2. i left one roll unsliced with toothpicks in it. 3. Two rolls I didn't bother rolling, which tirned out to be the cleanest method. They were still eaten, but it wasn't worth the mess or time. I might try it again, but take a very different approach, such as using less ingredients or maybe different dough.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
These turned out really bland. After tasting the dough and not thinking much of it, I added more spices (ground nutmeg, ground cloves, pumpkin pie spice, and more cinnamon), but the cookies still turned out really bland. They lived up to their soft reputation, but I expected a lot more, especially after all the high reviews. I would rather have hard cookies with flavor than soft cookies with none.

Quick and Easy Sauteed Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Definitely quick and easy. I used tomato and garlic seasoning since I didnt' have garlic salt. We also added extra olive oil. Keep in mind this doesn't make a lot. A 10 oz bag of spinach is only 2.5 servings max, usually, but it comfortably fed two of us.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
This was really easy. I did have a slight problem mixing the confectioner's sugar in and to dissolve. It left chunks and took a lot of stirring. I chose this recipe because I have a limited amount of baking supplies/tools, so this might have turned out better if I had had an electric mixer. Still not bad though, just a little elbow grease required. I followed others' advice and did the 3 cups confectioners, 2 cups brown sugar (1 cup light brown, 1 cup dark brown, just because of my supply), and 1 cup peanut butter. They were still really sweet, even though the sugar amount is less. Due to the sweetness and inability for anybody to eat more than a half-inch chunk at a time, I was able to get about 60 pieces out of this, so about 20 servings. Originally I had planned on aking two batches for a party, but one turned out to be enough. Thanks for the recipe, I'll probably try it again.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I didn't like the icing that goes on top and ended up leaving it off of the majority of the cookies. Much better without.

Raspberry Walnut Baked Brie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
This is the first time I've made baked brie. I tried a friend's before and it was wonderful so I thought I'd try to do it too. I had a problem with presentation. I'm not sure how you're supposed to serve it without cheese and jam everywhere. Do I let it cool first? Besides that, the final product was a lot sweeter than expected. THe jam and puff pastry were a little too much sugar. Still really enjoyable with Ritz crackers, but a little too rich. It was har to eat more than a small bite.

Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Followed the recipe exactly and turned out great. Keep in mind that these should be bite-sized. About half of mine were on the big side and got a little messy trying to bite into them.

Campbell's® Swiss Vegetable Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I replaced the bream of mushroom soup with cream of chicken. I'm not sure if it made any difference, but it turned out pretty bland. It took a lot longer than 40 minutes to bake for the veggies to soften up. I ende up leaving it in the oven for an additional 40 minutes.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
This is similar to a recipe I learned to make when I was little. Easy to put together and a tasty treat. My recipe used less sugar and more peanut butter, but resulted in a gooier cookie.

Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I was disappointed that this didn't measure up compared to sugar-filled peanut butter cookies. Wasn't too bad compared to a lot of sugar-free recipes and was easy to throw together real fast. It definitely helps to let them sit for quite awhile to harden, I would suggest for about an hour. I want to try these again, but make a few adjustments. I think brown sugar would help a ton wit hthe durability of this cookie, but would ruin the "sugar-free" name. If anybody finds a good way to adjust these without adding sugar, let me know!

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
The cookies aren't bad, but could use a little tweaking. I had trouble getting mine to harden/get past the original doughiness. They weren't bad as gooey, slimy balls, but were a little messy and left hands sticky. They were a little bland and the amount of dates was a little overwhelming. Next time I'm going to use half the amount of dates called for, add a little more vanilla, and a pinch of salt. I also used organic rolled oats which I think didn't soak up as much moisture as generic oatmeal. Next time I will try Quaker instant oatmeal with the hope of cutting back on the moisture factor. I like the simplicity of this recipe and definitely approve of using fruit rather than sugar to sweeten. Good idea, I just think I need to adjust it to meet my own personal preferences.
