Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2014
I left out the two cans of tomatoes with green chilies and added 1 can of green chilies. We left out the onion. I added 1/2 jar of the Walmart Great Value White Corn / Black Bean Salsa. I used 1 tbsp. taco seasoning instead of the package. Instead of chili beans, we used the Campbell's Roadhouse Chili Beef & Bean. We added 1 c sour cream directly to the soup. Very similar, just some slight modifications based on what we had on hand.

Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
I have not tried 'this' recipe, but have made one very similar. Instead of cubing the zucchini, we shred our zucchini. Instead of the cream of chicken, we used cream of mushroom. I don't think that I would like the zucchini cubed or the cream of chicken in this recipe.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2014
It would have received a 5 star, if it had not used nutmeg. I am not a fan of nutmeg.

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2014
My son chose this recipe without looking at the ingredients needed. We did not use the hot fudge topping or the milk. I'm not a huge fan of chocolate frosting and when I do, I like the milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate. In the future, for my own personal tastes, I would decrease the amount of cocoa. Aside from my own personal tastes it was great.

Seven Spiced Shark Steaks

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
Way too salty!!! We soaked the black-tip shark in milk and used this recipe; it was too salty. We grilled the shark. The last time we made shark we used a blackened seasoning and fried it in the pan. It had more of a rubbery texture making it in the pan, but my son liked it better last time, than this time. I enjoyed the shark better on the grill; it had more of a chicken texture. I rinsed off the shark and tried it with a peach BBQ sauce and everyone liked it better. We are going to try smoking shark next time. Then we will try basting a couple of different bbq sauces on the shark. I'm not a shark fan, BUT believe that I come up with the right method of cooking and flavor that we will be happy with it.

Kentucky Derby Museum Bourbon Balls

Yum, but I could easily eat these without the chocolate.

Buttermilk Pie

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
Aside from taking a long time to set and being beyond a golden brown... it's very good.

Juicy Peach Crisp

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
I didn't have any fresh peaches in the house so I used canned peaches. I didn't drain it enough and added a couple tablespoons of flour. The alterations I made took away from the crunchy top that I expect this recipe has. I will make the recipe again, but with fresh peaches and without the almond flavor, which I didn't care for.

Classic Bisquick™ Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
My son would likely rate it a 5-star since he ate the rest of it in less than 24 hours.

Rum or Bourbon Balls

Reviewed: May 1, 2014
My sister wanted KY Bourbon balls on her visit to see us in KY. I made this recipe and another. I'm not a fan of Bourbon, thus a 4 star rating. It's a toss up which recipe is better (the other uses Oreo Cookies and powder sugar), BUT of the Bourbon balls that I've had in the past, both recipes are better than others we've tried. Instead of Rum, I used Rum Chata in one, rolled in sugar. The other, I used Town Branch Bourbon, rolled in finely ground pecans. I used 1/2 c of pecans in each.

Lemon Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
Since a friend shared it with me, it's the only pound cake recipe that I use. Further, it's so versatile. It's a simple dessert to take anywhere.

Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
This was the first time we had halibut. We're hoping to take a fishing trip in Alaska; so thought we'd try the fish first. The halibut is amazing. This recipe is amazing. Looking forward to a future trip.

Craisin and White Chocolate Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2014
We've tried several scone recipes and this is one of our top three. It's hard to mess up and you don't have to shape them by hand.

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
I am not sure IF and what my son did wrong with the recipe, but I ended up adding another tbsp. of butter and an extra tbsp. of milk (we used milk instead of OJ). I absolutely loved the scones. I really look forward to trying it with some cranberries and white chocolate chips OR even adding pecans to this recipe. Also, I used a small Pampered Chef rolling pin and pressed the dough into a 9x9 glass dish. I cut it into quarters, then cut three triangles into each quarter. I took the triangles out and placed them on a greased cookie sheet. It was so easy!

Turtle Cheesecake from Karo®

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
We spent all that time in energy into this just for the caramel to be so hard on top that we couldn't cut a nice piece from it. Frustrating! Also, we used an oreo crust instead. Next time I will prebake the crust! The cream cheese / caramel part turned out fine. We didn't have chocolate chips and used some oreo crumbs. I will not use the Werther's caramel on top next time and will opt for some caramel sundae topping on it instead. This was the second time that I've baked with the Werthers and they were great in my homemade apple pie, but they were a poor choice for the top of this cheesecake; the consistency was all wrong.

Overnight Bubble Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
We used the instant pudding mix instead. Next time we will mix the pudding with the butter and brown sugar, so that we are not taking a mouthful of dry mix. My mother-in-law often made these for us when we were visiting. If it had turned out as good as hers, I would have given it a five star. Also, we used 15 rolls which nicely filled the 9x13 pan.

Christmas Tree Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
Just the way we like it. Some recipes just taste better with that almond flavoring and Christmas cutouts is one of them. We had no problems rolling out the dough. Now off to find the right icing.

Quick Mix Spritz

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
I use the Pampered Chef Cookie Press and if I don't have problems getting the cookie to stick to the pan instead of the press, then it's a success. These were a success. I have another recipe that calls for 2 c of butter and didn't have the butter this year. It lacks the buttery taste, but has almost the same texture.
