Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
I really enjoyed this recipe - and I'm not a big cobbler fan! It was a little sweet for my liking, so the second time I made this I cut back on the sugars just a tad. Oh, and fresh peaches make all the difference in the world! Thanks for sharing.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Perfect, easy cookie. On a whim, decided to bake these at 8 pm so I hurried the chilling process along by placing the batter in the freezer for 45 minutes. Baked for 11 minutes and they came out great! Will definitely use this recipe on a frequent basis. Thanks for sharing :)

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
SO good. Think next time, though, I'll cut the sugar down by 1 to 1/2 a cup. Other than that, it was a simple, delicious cake... didn't add any toppings to it. And the crust on top - to die for! Thanks for sharing :)

Toffee Caramel Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Very, very good dessert bar! I agree - the caramel does need to set for about 10 minutes prior to pouring the chocolate on top. Instead of making these in a pan, I used a mini muffin tin. Very tedious, but so cute! The only change I made to this was to omit the shortening from the melted chocolate topping... really no need for it, IMO. Will keep this in regular rotation!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
I'm beginning to love these throw-everything-in-your-kitchen-together sauces! I used chicken tenders and Worcestershire sauce instead of sauce because I don't usually have soy on hand. The last five minutes of so I placed under my broiler. This is really, very good.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This was absolutely delicious! Only change I made was to substitute the cup of oil, I used an 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple. Makes it so moist and not so bad to eat! Oh, well I guess I made another change... used 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice, rather than each individual spice. Very, very good! Will definitely keep in my rotation. Thanks for sharing!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
As others have said, this is the Hersey's recipe for chocolate cake. That being said, this is a good one! The cake comes out really moist and flavorful - I even left out the vanilla by accident, which I can't believe considering I'm a vanilla fuh-reak! Great, great cake - and I'm not even that big on chocolate cake. No more boxed cake mixes for me!

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Excellent! I had to substitute the 4 oz of baker's chocolate for 12T/4T of cocoa powder and oil, respectively, but it worked fine as always. Also, I used skim milk instead of the evaporated. Even with these small changes, the recipe delivers on both ease and taste! I won't ever buy another can of frosting again!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
Simple concept, big flavor! I used a pre-packaged peanut butter cookie mix for this and bought the bag of Reese's PB cups with white, milk, and dark chocolate cups. Sent with my husband for his kids at work for the holidays and they were gone in no time flat. Very addicting!

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Very good cream frosting! Not sure what all the fuss is about regarding the difficulty in making this... pretty straight forward. It's definitely a detour from heavily sweetened buttercreams, but a pleasant one.

Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I really, really like these! I used the 12T cocoa powder/4T butter substitution since I didn't have any squares of chocolate. Easy recipe to follow and they came out great! I also only used 3 eggs and thought the 'fudginess' was spot on. Thanks for the recipe!

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
Wow, wow, wow! This is one of the best ways to use up fresh, summer zucchini - second only to zucchini cupcakes ;) I made this exactly as written (except I did drain my shredded zucchini by placing it in a clean kitchen towel and squeezing it) and it was fantastic! Thanks for the great recipe... will definitely use as a go-to side dish!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
Great recipe! I had some fresh blackberries I needed to use up and thought this would be a great recipe to do so! Although the dough is messy to work with, especially fresh berries (should have frozen them), there's not much effort needed for these scones. Great tip on grating the frozen butter - way easier than cutting it in! Will use again and again!

Berry Shortbread Dreams

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
Muy delicioso! These little treats are so easy to make and offer a break from other, more sweet desserts. Thanks for sharing... will keep and use regularly! EDIT: 8/27 - made these for a co-worker's birthday and they disappeared in no time! Love, love, love these cookies! :)

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
These were the stuff! Only recommendation I would give is to sprinkle salt and pepper in between each layer - just not on the very top. I think this will relieve some of the taste 'issue' others have encountered. Will keep around... thanks for sharing!

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
So easy and delicious! I used chicken tenders instead, but this recipe will definitely work with any cut of chicken. Along with others, I baked instead of broiling due to my kitchen not having very good ventilation. And, for easy clean-up, I lined my baking dish with foil. Fast and simple with great flavor!

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: Aug. 9, 2009
This is one-heckuva recipe! Cookies come out great! I agree with previous reviewers - if you are making the cookies as big as the recipe calls for, it's best to reduce the amount of cookies on the baking sheet because they do grow quite a bit... I actually only put 6 on a sheet. And, I needed about 17 - 19 minutes to get the cookies to the right baked consistency. These are just my own personal findings, though! This receipe is definitely worth a try!!

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
Pretty easy sauce! As is, it only tastes like a '4', but the goods are all there so I'll give it a '5'. I decided to add garlic powder and pepper, but those are just my taste buds. Served with gnocchi and sauteed chicken - delish!

S'more Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
These were really good! A little difficult to cut, but so worth the 'difficulty'! Very rich, so a little piece goes a long way... makes them last longer! :)

Seven Layer Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Good, good, good! Only thing I changed was leaving the black olives out... don't really care for them. Not the cheapest crowd food, but always a popular one!
