Peppermint Patties

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I ended up only using three cups of the sugar and followed the suggestion of brushing on the chocolate instead of dipping it. I also added a splash of milk to the chocolate mix.

Potato Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Foolishly I left out the salt. It definitely needed the salt. I also substituted garlic powder for the garlic salt, which I will do again. I also added extra garlic powder since my husband and I both like garlic.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I didn't have Italian seasoned bread crumbs so I crushed Ritz and added my own Italian seasoning and garlic to it. Other than that, I kept the recipe the same. It came out great and I even had left overs, which heated up in the microwave at work pretty well.

Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
This was delicious. My husband and I ate almost the entire thing ourselves. The only thing I would suggest is to add more cheddar than the recipe calls for. I shredded almost 8 oz (we really like cheese in our house) and it really added a lot more flavor. We also added more chicken, but only because we had two breasts that were packaged together.

Grilled Apple and Swiss Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
My husband can't eat apples unless they have been cooked (they make his throat scratchy). We are both originally from Wisconsin so we love our cheese. I thought that this would be a great way to combine two things he loves, but doesn't always get to eat. I was a little leery at first, but thought I'd give it a whirl. I'm so glad I did. Both my husband and I loved it. He has requested that I make it again soon. I used Swiss cheese and whole wheat bread (just store bought sandwich bread) and it was fantastic!

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
The time and temperature really do need adjusting on this recipe. I bake them at 400 degrees for twenty minutes a side. If you flip them they cook more evenly and you avoid having burnt fries. My husband says these are better than store bought. Plus, they are a lot healthier.

Easy Olive Oil, Tomato, and Basil Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
This was really good. The only problem I had was mincing the garlic. I guess I'll have to practice that, or just used pre-minced garlic or garlic powder next time. I also added red, green, and yellow peppers, along with cucumber.

Cream Cheese Mints

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
I use an entire 8 oz package of cream cheese and almost an entire bag of powdered sugar. I also substitute 2 teaspoons of peppermint extract for the peppermint oil. I use a half teaspoon to make rounded mints instead of flattening them out with a fork. They are so delicious and easy to make. People can't believe how easy the recipe is and they can't get enough of these mints!

Quick Brownbag Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
These were delicious and quick. I made my own salsa ahead of time which I think added a lot to the burritos. I also cooked some frozen corn in the microwave and dumped it into the bean mixture a minute or two before serving.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
The only reason why I am rating this three stars is because of the serrano peppers. I made a double batch of salsa and used only two serrano peppers in the entire thing. It was definitely spicy enough for me and even my husband who loves spicy food said that it had a good amount of spice. I would never use 5 serrano peppers. The salsa was fabulous though and will be making it again...just not with as many peppers as the recipe calls for.

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
I did not have flavored feta on hand so I sprinkled my plain feta with dried basil. I also only had plain bread crumbs so I seasoned them with Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Once I got the hang of flattening out my chicken this was a very fast and easy recipe. My husband loved it and I thought it was very good too. We will definitely be having this again.

Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
This is so easy and tastes delicious. I did do what others did and cool it in the fridge for a few minutes and then mixed it again before applying to my muffins and also left out the salt. I frosted 18 regular sized muffins and still have about two cups of frosting left. I'm hoping that it freezes well!

Caramel for Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
This was way too soupy. It didn't really harden up. It tasted great, but couldn't really be eaten by itself.

Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
This is pretty bland as is; however I find that if you add a teaspoon each of chili powder and cumin along with some cooked corn and this dish became really delicious.

Spinach Cheese Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
This dish it a bit plain as is. I also substitute ricotta for the cottage cheese. I have also tried adding additional garlic (about three cloves), some black pepper, and a dash of salt. I topped it with some crumbled feta and thought it was much better than the first time I made it.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I followed the suggestions of other users and used almond bark chocolate to coat the truffles. I also put the truffles in the freezer to harden them faster and make them a little easier to roll into balls. I made three different types: vanilla with white chocolate and walnuts, orange with coconut, and raspberry with almonds. So far I've only tried the orange with coconut and it was delicious. I made them way too big though because they are VERY rich.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly and it was way too orange-y.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Tangy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
I guess I just didn't care for the barbeque flavor after it had been cooking for so long. I won't be making this again.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
This was my first attempt at brownies. The recipe is really good as is; I didn't make any changes. One end of my batter ended up thicker than the other. This meant I had to bake it longer than stated, but it's probably my fault. I'm not sure what happened, but I ate a brownie off of the thinner end and it was delicious. I can't wait to share these with my husband (if there are any left when he gets home!)

Black Bean Rice Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
As is, the recipe is a bit bland for my taste (which is saying a lot because I'm not one for spicy foods). With some changes, these have become a favorite around our house. I dice up 2 or 3 serrano peppers and mix it into the burger mixture to give it some kick. Like other reviewers, I add bread crumbs to help it stick better. I also just sprinkle on some cumin and chile powder (I'm big on just eyeballing it...sorry for imprecise measurements). I also add more salsa (again, I just eyeball it). These are delicious with the changes I made but bland without, so I can't give it a higher rating.
