Marshmallow and Lime Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Okay, I must admit, when I read the recipe it sounded a lot like some concoction I would have come up with as a kid... those ones you dare your friends to eat. Well, I read the reviews and decided to give it a try. What a wonderful surprise. The appearance isn't much to rave about but the taste is nice and light and sweet. My preference now is to omit the nuts. I found the texture of the mousse like mix and the nuts just didn't quite go together.

Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Wow!! These are unbelievably delicious. I've made them a few times now and have learned one very important thing. Marinate them overnight. The first time I made them the flavor was good but very weak. I made them again and marinated the chicken overnight, then skewered and barbecued them the next day. My parents, my husband and I as well as our two toddlers couldn't get enough. Thank you for the wonderful and incredibly simple recipe.

Potato and Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
This is a good starter recipe for potato cheddar soup. As mentioned by several reviewers it definitely needs a few extras to improve the flavor which would otherwise be very bland. I have a few tips that made the soup very tasty. I always start my potato soups with mashed potatoes; it gives the soup a nice thick texture. I used crisp bacon, 2 cups of sliced carrots as well as the water I had used to boil them, about a half cup sauteed onions, a tablespoon of chicken broth, and a teaspoon of parsley. With plenty of soup making experience now, I also have a tip regarding the cheese. I put the soup on a low heat to let the flavors blend and at that time sprinkled a few tablespoons of the cheese at a time to give it a chance to melt in. Once it's melted in, give it a stir and add a few more tablespoons until it's all added (as a novice soup maker, I made the mistake of sprinkling all of the cheese in at once and ended up with one lumpy mess of a soup; the cheese all clumped together and ended up very gummy, it was terrible).

One Oh One Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
The bake time really does make a difference with these cookies. The best batch was in for 11 minutes. I thought they might be a little under baked, but after sitting for a few minutes they were quite good. I tossed the first batch that baked for 15 minutes - way too long for these cookies I found. The texture is good and chocolate chips add a nice sweetness that the cookie seems to lack otherwise. Not my favorite, but a decent cookie and a hit with the kids.

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Very tasty, especially while it's still warm from the oven. I would recommend only making this one if there are enough people to finish off the pie. Though quite moist the first day, it really dried out over night.

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Everyone loved it on Christmas day. I was hoping to take some home for the next day, but there wasn't a crumb left. It will definitely become the Christmas brunch tradition. I love that it is so full of veggies and very moist. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

Black Forest Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I had both my family and my husband's family over on Christmas day and had everyone bring a sweet treat to set on the table for dessert. There were lots of delicious treats, but this one disappeared first. They were so tasty and very easy to make. I will definitely be making these again, they may even become a Christmas tradition. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This recipe was great... so easy! My husband's favorite version of this recipe (and likely mine as well) started with a maraschino cherry in the middle, coated with almond flavoured truffle mix, then coated in melted milk chocolate... YUM!
