'So This Is What Heaven Tastes Like!' Cream Cheese Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
These bake up so nice! Really yummy! I left the nuts out altogether and made an 8x8 pan with just chocolate chips (for the kids) and another 8x8 pan with chocolate chips and dried cherries. Both were good but the dried cherries really took these bars to the next level. I went a little light on the dried cherries because I wasn't sure how it would taste.. next time I will definitely add more..YUM! Brought these to two different houses of people and everyone loved them!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Made these for my girls for lunch and they thought they were something special, especially since mom and dad are sushi lovers =) I found it was best to flatten the bread, cut it into four strips and then add the peanut butter and jelly then roll. Less mess and looks more presentable.

Wild Rice Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Hearty and tasty! Threw this together for a quick lunch for a friend and I. I agree pureeing 2 cups of the soup is key to the consistency. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
Some friends and I made the Bakerella (bakerella.com) version of cake balls which is the same idea except you coat the outside with candy melts.

Hot Apple Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
Doubled the recipe and made a it for Halloween night. Forgot the orange and lemon at the store but it didn't matter.. full flavor and tasted WONDERFUL! A guest said it definitely had a homemade taste and was the best hot apple cider he's had =)

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
These were enjoyable. Made them over the holidays. I was going to try and use fresh cranberries and then chickened out after tasting how tart they were, I was a little unsure how they would be because I've never used fresh always dried. I had some dried cherries on hand so I used those. I liked them as did several guests, I think the orange flavor might not be for everyone.

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I thought this recipe was good. I took others advice and only used half the sugar the recipe called for.. definitely sweet enough. Next time I think I will make the following changes: Add a little cinnamon, mix some of the chocolate chips in and save some to sprinkle on top (many of my chocolate chips sank to the bottom), blend the banana with the liquid, and I will also add more bread than the recipe called for. This recipe is a little more custard like and so I hope by adding a little more bread to soak up the liquid a little more. Tasted great though.. especially warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Made these for my daughter's valentine treats for her to hand out at school. Put the marshmallows on a popsicle stick dipped them in melted chocolate and sprinkled them with valentine sprinkles. They set up nice and I was able to bag them, add a ribbon and her valentine card. So simple and the kids LOVED them!

Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Great recipe Dianne! I just had to try these after reading the reviews. I was also surprised at how little butter this recipe called for. I decided to use cinnamon apple sauce. I yielded 12 large size cookies using a 1/4 c. measuring cup as suggested. These cookies bake up beautiful and thick!. My daughters (ages 9 and 3) thought these tasted great. So happy to have a healthy cookie recipe like this... cheers to you Dianne!

Pudding-Topped Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
My mom asked me to make a fruit salad to bring to a family gathering. This knocked her socks off =) We loved it!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Loved it! Easy enough to make and tasted wonderful! I had a rotisserie chicken that needed to be used so I skipped adding the chicken to the veggies to boil. Instead I added diced potato to the veggies and boiled the veggies and potato in chicken broth, then incorporated the diced chicken after draining the potato/veggies. The potato addition was a must for me.. can't imagine pot pie without it! I used a store bought pie crust (which came out great) but will step it up next time and make my own =)

Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
How can you go wrong with strawberries and this filling! Brought these to a summer party and everyone loved them. I didn't have orange liquor so I used 1 tbl vanilla instead. I also sprinkled the tops with grated chocolate. YUM!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
These enchiladas were very enjoyable. I agree with people who have said that there are a lot of steps to this recipe. In the future I will probably use corn tortillas vs. flour and look for ways to combine a few of the cooking methods in the recipe to cut down on prep time. Overall a good recipe.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Fantastic! I love that this cornbread is moist instead of dry and crumbly. Doubled the recipe and used a 9x13 cake pan. Baked up beautiful, thick and stayed in tact when sliced into pieces. Everyone loved it!

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
This will be my "go to" cookie recipe. Fabulous taste! I took a suggestion from mysweetcreations and split the dough up used chocolate chips in half and m & m's in half, also by her suggestion I baked some up and rolled most of the dough into balls for freezing. Just baked the frozen cookies and they came out great. Such a great recipe and the convenience of freezing the dough into balls to pop in the oven s few at a time is perfect for us.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I love great slow-cooker recipes! This soup is really good, wish I could give it 4 1/2 stars. I probably would be inclined to give it 5 but I have several similar recipes that are all very good.. guess I'm holding out for one to be "the one" and knock my socks off. I would definitely make this one again. Has some spice to it but we added even more.

New England Clam Chowder II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
My family really enjoyed this chowder. As others suggested I doubled the recipe, glad I did, it disappeared fast and I can't imagine not at least doubling it! I also took another suggestion and added red wine vinegar, about 3 tbls. to the doubled recipe. Fantastic! Will file this one in the recipe book!
