Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Excellent. We all loved this. Hubby and kids all agreed that this should be made often. We have a large dinner here every Sunday for the entire family and hubs suggested that this be remembered for one of those huge, special meals. That is fine with me, as this is soooo easy and absolutely delicious. I doubled the sauce, used BLSL chicken breasts, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, rice vinegar instead of cider and grated fresh ginger in place of the ground. Perfect. Thanks for sharing!!

Jelly-Filled Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Prepared these muffins for the Recipe Group this week. We love them! The taste reminds us of a cross between the donut muffin recipes (here on AR) and cinnamon toast with jelly (can you just imagine? :) So Good. I was a little worried because the batter is very, very thick and was a little difficult for me to spread into the muffin cups but they baked up moist and tender with a great texture and good height. I doubled the recipe and ended up with 18 good size muffins (I made them a little larger than stated.) Filled half with raspberry preserves and half with blackberry jam. Both were equally good. We will definately make these again. Thanks for sharing!

Creamy Lemon Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
We really enjoyed this pie. Perfect tart/sweet combo. Using freshly squeezed lemon juice is a must. I also added the zest from 1/2 lemon. This recipe is also on the Eagle Brand site, with an added layer of raspberries. Very easy (10 oz bag of thawed raspberries and cornstarch; heated until thick and clear and then poured on top of the cooked lemon layer.) Hubby loves raspberries so I added it. I added approx. 1/8 cup sugar to the raspberries. Perfect. We will enjoy this again soon.

Pear Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
We really enjoyed this pie. Hubby commented several times that he loved that it wasn't overly sweet. Followed the recipe with the exception of throwing in a handful of fresh raspberries that needed to be used up and a little extra cornstarch (my pears were very ripe). I will make this one again. Thanks for sharing!

Soft Pretzels with Mustard

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
"You made these?" That's the question that was asked over and over when we served these. Honestly, one of the easiest things I have ever thrown together in less than 5 minutes and ended up with excellent results. We used Sea Salt on some, kosher salt/toasted sesame seeds/poppy seeds on some and left some plain. I didn't use the mustard dip but did serve them with "Clone of a Pretzel Dip" from this site. Perfect! One of the first things to be finished.

Clone of a Pretzel Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
Excellent Dip! Everyone loved it and commented on it. A little spicy, a little sweet and a little tart. Perfect balance of flavors. Thanks for sharing, Shorecook!

Luscious Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This is a very moist, tender cake with great flavor. Very quick and easy to prepare. I did not have enough lemon juice but did have fresh orange juice so I used that and threw in the zest of one orange as well. I found a recipe similar to this recently and that recipe had blueberries in it. I had a couple of handfuls of frozen blueberries in the freezer so I added those too. Everyone really enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing!

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
Excellent Cookie Recipe! I needed a quick and easy dessert this evening and this was the perfect choice. I decided to make these in mini muffin cups and top them with a little marshmallow creme and a drizzle of caramel and chocolate sauces. It worked out great! Mini muffins baked approx. 11 min at 375 in my oven and came out rich and just like a little brownie. Everyone loved them and we will make them again. Thanks for sharing!

Rice Balls a la Tim

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
Fun and super easy recipe with good results. Kids loved them, Hubby and I thought they were just a tad bland. I tasted the mixture before rolling and decided to add dry Italian Seasoning and use Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs. Son said they reminded him a little of the filling for stuffed bell peppers. All agreed that with a little more seasonings, this will be requested often. Thanks for sharing!

Chunky Monkey Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Oh My Goodness! Very moist with super banana and chocolate flavors. Our favorite part of these brownies is the excellent texture from the oatmeal and toasted nuts. CAREFUL!...Very Addictive. Hubby and I have had 3 each this evening. :) I didn't chop the slivered almonds and we loved the crunch. Thanks for sharing, CC. These will be a repeat here!

Lena's Swedish Meatballs with Lingonberry Sauce Recipe : Tyler Florence : Food Network

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I have made these a few times in the last year. My kids love them. I use 2 pounds of ground beef and 1 pound of ground pork (no veal). The 2 TBS of salt that is called for in the recipe would be too much for our taste. I use 1 TBS Kosher Salt and it is perfect. Also, I have never been able to find the Lingonberry Jam to serve on the side but have never missed it. I have used both Black Current Jam and Red (this time) in the sauce and both are great. Excellent Recipe that we will enjoy again soon!

Cherry Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
These are delicious! I have wanted to make these for some time and was sure I had everything. But...no walnuts. So, I used almonds and substituted almond extract for the vanilla. They end up being a little on the thin side but that works out great because there is just enough to not be overly sweet or rich. I will be making these again to add to the Holiday trays. Thanks for sharing!

Dark Chocolate Apricot Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
Great Cookie! Exactly what I was looking for in taste, ease and presentation. This is the first time I have ever used the cookie mix from the baking aisle. I have tried the refrigerated variety and have never had much luck with them so I was a little hesitant. The previous review stated that the cookie was a little bland so I upped the orange extract just a little and used Ghirardelli chips for dipping. Perfect.

Soft Chocolate Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
Very good cookie! Soft as claimed the first day but not as much on the second day. I backed the peppermint down to 3/4 teaspoon and that is perfect for our taste. 1 teaspoon would have been a little too much. I was out of buttermilk so mixed 1 tsp of lemon juice in 1 cup of milk and let it sit for 5 minutes and just used 1/4 cup of that. It worked fine. The dough set up in 15 min and I used a small ice cream scoop and baked for 11 min (they were still undercooked at 8 - 10). After cooling on a rack, I just melted some semi-sweet choc chips, drizzled that on top and sprinkled crushed candy canes on top. Everyone loves them. Thanks for sharing!

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Excellent Shortbread Cookies! I use 1/2 unsalted and 1/2 salted butter. We love cranberry/orange flavors and these were delicious with 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries and the zest of an orange folded in with a simple glaze of powdered sugar, orange juice and zest. I used a small ice cream scoop and baked for 11 minutes and they are perfect. Allow them to cool on the sheets for 4 - 5 minutes before moving to racks to cool completely. This is one of our favorite holiday cookies. Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Absolutely perfect! One of the best chocolate cake recipes I have tried. Moist but still light and not overly dense. Super chocolate flavor. I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa for the first time in this recipe and loved the results. We had a smaller group for dinner and needed a smaller dessert so I halved the recipe (scaled down to 12 servings) and baked in one 8" round. Everyone loved it and I will use this recipe often. Thanks for sharing!

Candied Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
I served this as dessert after a light lunch to company. Everyone loved it! It is perfect as written but I added a few Craisins and chopped walnuts before serving just for color and texture. Excellent. Thanks for sharing!

Mini Pumpkin Muffins with Orange Drizzle

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
These are really good. All the flavors of fall in one little bite. Not overly sweet, moist, tender and perfectly spiced. The orange glaze is a great match. I used a little less orange juice to make it thicker and added a little more zest until I reached the orange level I was looking for. Hubby, kids and grandkids all love these. Thanks for sharing!
