Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
Absolutely perfect! I subbed skim milk only because there was no evaporated milk in my pantry. This yields a creamy, fluffy, mousse-like frosting. One batch was enough to conservatively frost 24 cupcakes so if you plan to pipe frosting and be decorative you may want to adjust accordingly.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
These were easy to throw together! I used 1 cup of pumpkin and added a 1/2 cup of quick-cook oats. I rolled the dough out and cut into various sized squares. Gave half to my mom and the other half to a friend and their dogs both love them!

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
These tasted great!! They were crunchy on the outside and light and chewy on the inside. I don't have a bread machine, so I made this by hand. I made 4 hoagie-sized baguettes and we ate them with the "Easy Slow Cooker French Dip" sandwich meat on this site. I need some practice shaping my baguettes, but that just gives me an excuse to use this recipe again!

Jan's Pretzel Dogs

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
These were tasty and fun! I made the dough by hand and wrapped it around kielbasa for a more grown up taste. Topped with spicy, dijon, or just plain yellow mustard these were a big hit! I cleaned up the kitchen while they baked and sat down at the table with my daughter and husband without delay (a rarity in our house). Thanks for the wonderful recipe! I'll definitely make these again.

Spider Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
I'm rating the CONCEPT of this recipe 5 stars. I used my own cake recipe and the "Chocolate Frosting I" from this site. After baking, I dipped the cupcakes in the frosting, added 2 red hots for eyes and then dipped in chocolate sprinkles. I made several without legs and only a few with legs (the legs were messy). I couldn't find black rope licorice, so I used rainbow colored Twizzlers. I sliced them into two equal portions and then slit each portion lengthwise (1 Twizzler = 4 legs). I shoved 6 legs into the cupcakes after I had put on the eyes & sprinkles. I brought these to our "October Birthday Celebration" at work. Thanks for the great idea!

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Great pie! I ran out of eggs Thanksgiving Day so I substituted with flax seed. The spice combination was perfect; all this pie needs is a dollop of whipping cream on top.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
What a fantastic chili! I eyeballed the chili powder and added a little cornstarch before it finished cooking. Simmered almost 2 hours total and served with Buttery Corn Bread from this site. Perfect combination of spicy & sweet! This recipe was so easy to follow, I already had most of the ingredients in my cupboards. This will be a staple as the weather continues to get colder!

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This recipe is fail proof. I halve it for just my husband and I, and make the entire batch when we have company. It's so easy and always ends up being the star of the meal! I use a little less flour and make up the difference with flax seed (it makes me feel better about all the butter, ha).

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
These are super easy to throw together and taste great! I make them once/week for my husband. We like to add raisins, use 2 1/2 cups of oats, omit the vanilla and use 1/2 cup brown sugar. Perfect!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
Easy and delicious! My only problem was that the chicken was so tender, it was difficult to cut! I baked one chicken at 250 for a little over 3 hours. Will definitely be making this over and over again.

Hubby's Pizza Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
This was a huge hit at our house! I followed Shezzza's lead and made my bread by hand, rolling the pepperoni up in the dough. I proofed the yeast with the milk, then added to the flour, salt, sugar, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese (subbed for the cheddar). I kneaded the dough and drizzled the 1 1/2 tbsp of butter to coat. I let rise for one hour, punched the dough down and then let it rise for another hour. After the second rise, I turned the dough out on a floured surface and rolled out. I melted another tbsp of butter and smeared it on my dough, then generously sprinkled the dough with garlic powder and oregano. I coated the dough with pepperoni, and then rolled shut and placed in a bread pan. I smothered the roll with more cheese and topped with even more pepperoni. Baked at 350 for 35 minutes, removed from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. My husband and I both loved this pizza bread! The dough was very easy to work with and stayed light and fluffy after baking. Paired with some sauce for dipping, this recipe is definitely a keeper!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I have never attempted to make biscuits, but this recipe looked so simple I couldn't resist. Despite the fact that I added too much milk and patted mine down to 1/2 in instead of 1 in, the flavor was still great and they were light and fluffy on the inside! I mixed just until the batter came together and then patted the dough out (no additional kneading). I also subbed butter for shortening. I served them hot out of the oven with "Fluffy Scrambled Eggs" from this site. It was just like a Sunday morning breakfast out, only my husband and I were still in our pajamas! I can't wait to try these biscuits again - next time with sausage and gravy!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Excellent! I used an entire green pepper, pureed with the onion until homogenous and drained as much liquid as possible before adding pureed beans and ~1 1/4c ground oatmeal/bread crumbs mix. I ended up with 6 medium-large patties which after baking at 375 for 22 minutes, I flipped, topped with cheddar cheese and broiled until bubbly. These were quite filling and healthy! Next time I will add a tsp or so of salt and pepper to the mix.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
Excellent! At the advice of other reviewers, I used 4 cups of strawberries (2 diced & 2 smooshed), 1 1/2 cups white sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. I baked in a bundt pan for 65 minutes and it was perfect! Remember to let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out - I couldn't wait and lost a few pieces as they stuck to the pan (it's okay though, it just gave me a sneak taste before my husband could cut a slice!). UPDATE: I have to re-review this. My daughter and I made this as written (halved to yield one loaf) and it is perfect as-is, no modifications needed!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
Made this for dinner last night and it was great! I prepped all the ingredients so my 12 year old nephew (and asipiring chef) could help make the sauce. After we browned the chicken, the rest came together very quickly. We didn't add the tomatos or sour cream because my helper tasted the sauce before we added them and said "it tastes just like alfredo sauce should!" Two 12oz boxes of fettuccine noodles were the perfect amount for the sauce. Last night we subbed oregano instead for italian seasoning and mozzarella instead of colby/jack because that's what I had on hand. Next time I will omit the onions, up the garlic and add a little bit more milk since once the sauce cooled it thickened up quite a bit.

Espresso Bark

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I made this twice in one weekend to try out different methods. The first time I coarsely ground the coffee and swirled in the white chocolate at the end. The final result was a bit messy looking, thin and, as expected, gritty. The second time I left the beans whole and drizzled white chocolate on top after the bark had completely set. The final result was thick and beautiful! For both trials I scored the bark after 2-3 minutes in the freezer which made slicing once completely set very easy. This recipe yielded 24 nice-sized pieces. I bake part-time and I break down all my recipes to cost of ingredients - this recipe, using Starbucks whole coffee beans and Ghiardelli chocolate, cost $5.09/batch. All in all, this is a fast, easy, cheap and impressive treat that I'll be making again an again for friends and family.

German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
This was incredible!! The presentation was beautiful and it tasted amazing. The outer edges were crispy and reminiscent of the "elephant ears" my parents bought me at the Iowa State fairs when I was younger and the middle was softer and just plain wonderful. I took the advice in the write-up and mixed the batter together the night before.
