Lots of Chocolate Cherry Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
I don't drink coffee and wasn't about to buy some just for this so I didn't add coffee. As strange as it sounds I substituted candy sprinkles for the coffee (the thicker sprinkles). I also added more chocolate chips instead of adding white chocolate chips, and used cranberries instead of cherries. Perfect texture and great flavor.

Uglies

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
We love these. I did add a can of green chilis and tomato, and some brown sugar to the mixture. we also used homemade biscuit dough which I think helps.

Chocolate Rocky Road Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
I liked the flavor, but would not put nuts in next time. I did add corn flakes to a second batch and that helped them. Also, one marshmallow is not enough use three or four. Otherwise if you can find the formula for cocoa powder instead of choc chips melted it would be much easier.

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Extremely easy. Even I couldn't mess it up! Tastes just like the store bought mix we ran out of.

Monkey Peanut Butter Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
Frosting was awesome but not enough to cover the pan, you'll have to double that one. Everything else was just average. As others said, the crust didn't taste like peanut butter and was a little too dry. But still edible. Otherwise I agree with those who said there is too much chocolate.

Rice Balls a la Tim

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Even my husband who lived in Italy for 2 years loved these. However, the second time we made them we made little cheese balls in the middle. Certainly added to it, but great without too!

Fudge-Nut Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Not terrible, but definitely not as good as all of the reviews. the chocolate was too soft. would be better if it thickened up. Perhaps I added the milk at the wrong time. Recipe lists ingredient, but not when to add so I assumed you added with the melting butter etc. perhaps you might want to add with the vanilla at the end?

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Good frosting, but brownies weren't even close. edible, but grainy/sand like. I've made a lot of brownies in the past and this was not to my liking... Made these a second time not realizing it was the same recipe. They just are fudgy enough is the final verdict from everyone.

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Tasted a like a regular pancake to me. My husband said he could taste the nutmeg a lot, but otherwise it was the same as a regular pancake.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
I have to agree that the flavor isn't right. I didn't add wine and did less soy sauce as recommended. its just too sweet and not much "real" flavor. it was still edible, but i added a lot of pepper and other spices to make it better.

Washboard Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
If you read a review about the cookies being unflavorful.... it was RIGHT. They are still ok, but they are just missing something. I added cinnamon in the second batch, which helped, but still not that great. These are they type of cookie that would go well with a cup of tea, but on their own they are pretty bland.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
Might as well just melted the chocolate chips and skipped all other steps. this turned out to be a hard piece of chocolate. Not fudge like at all!

Pasta with Kielbasa and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
My husband doesn't like the sauerkraut so he picks it out. but he won't let me make this without it cause he knows how much flavor it adds. I did modify this quite a a bit because I didn't have dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, bell pepper or white wine the first time I made it. i followed the instructions otherwise, but added a little vinegar, garlic powder, beef boullion cube, and extra parsley. Some say this didn't have enough flavor that is why I added it, but really it would have probably been fine without the additions. Didn't expect to like this one, but loved it! You may have to experiment with it. I have occasionally added too much vinegar and had to add other spices to fix it (such as sugar, salt, pepper, etc.)

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Husband said they were better than his moms! Anyway, like other reviewers said, they don't raise, no matter how long you leave them, but it doesn't matter cause they taste great. My husband wanted them again after we ate a whole pan ourselves. He usually only requests desserts again.
