Sweet Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
This pasta is absolutely wonderful!! I used a red pepper instead of green, omitted the sugar b/c from previous reviews they said the sugar would make it too sweet and I'm so glad I did b/c it was perfectly sweet w/o the sugar! And I added black olives and shredded cheese. I made it the night b4 and let it sit overnight, and it turned out so good!! Everyone loved it, and asked what all was in it! And it was even requested at my friend's graduation party this weekend so I'll be making it again! Loved it! Thank you so much!

Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Wow this was so good! I listed to other reviewers and baked the chicken instead of fried it. I also used crushed ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs b/c that's what I had on hand and I added garlic powder and onion powder to the mix. I also used someone's advice and mixed the melted butter into the crumb mixture to ensure the crispy outside. I baked it on 375 degree's for 30-35 minutes and they were so perfect! Crispy on the outside and juicy and moist on the inside. I served it over speghetti w/ marinara over it all. Very very good and super easy. Will definately be making this often! Thank you!

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
Wowie this is good!!! I'm eating it as I type! And it was so easy! I took other's advise and doubled the recipe and I'm glad I did b/c it made a nice full 9 inch pie. 4 egg whites, 2 cans sweet cond milk, and 1 cup lime juice. I just realized that I accidentally used egg whites instead of yolks. That was an honest mistake, I wasn't even trying to do that to make it healthier..I just read "yokes" and for some reason thought of whites. Well, using 4 egg whites apparently didn't hurt anything. It made it very delicious and alot healthier! Yummy!!!!

Pizza Pinwheels

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
These were so easy and SO yummy!! Instead of using the triangle crescant rolls, I used a dough sheet that you can find in the same section as the crescants. That made is so much easier to assemble! And I didn't cut them into individual rolls until after I baked them. Such an easy yummy treat!

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
This is just a little different than I've made stuffed peppers in the past but this recipe is so delicious!! The only thing different was adding the worcestershire sauce and the tomato soup, both of which added so much flavor!! I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of chopping whole tomatoes, I cooked the rice by itself and then added it to everything else. And I added a little more cheese on the top of the peppers after I poured the tomato soup. So so yummy! I will use this recipe from now on when making stuffed peppers! Thank you!!

Meringue II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
This was my first time making meringue so I didn't really know what to expect in the process of making it. First of all, the recipe doesn't tell you what speed to whip it, and I always whip everything on low, so I was standing there forever starting to get worried b/c it wasn't getting thick. Finally I turned it up to hgh and right away it started thickening up! So, make sure you whip the meringue in a stainless steel bowl on HIGH, and it will thicken. I made it to put over a lemon pie and put it in the oven for 20 minutes and it got lightly browned. I wanted the meringue to be a little harder, b/c it was more soft and fluffy, but since it was my first meringue I was quite happy w/ it! And it tasted great! Thank you!

Easy Chocolate Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
This recipe is awesome! I made the cake for my husband for his birthday/Father's Day and he loved it! I went ahead and used the white cake mix, I used 4 small bananas and that was perfect..and I put dark chocolate frosting in the middle of the layers (2 8" pans), on top, and all over, and sprinkled the powdered sugar on top. Thank you for the the easiest, most delicious cake ever!!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
This wasn't that great, it didn't have very much flavor at all. But I do have to admit that I used egg whites instead of whole eggs. B/c there is no way we were going to eat 8 whole eggs! So I wonder if taking away the yolks took a lot of flavor out of the salad. I also think I accidentally added too much onion. But still, it was very bland. I know I know, you shouldn't rate a recipe if you made alterations that possibly ruined it, but I wanted to share what I did so others can take my advise that my alterations didn't work out so well! lol

The Best Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
SO SO SO good!!! I followed the recipe almost exactly. The only change I made was I used minced dry onions instead of chopping one. I usually don't do that but that's what I had and I didn't want to go to the store for an onion. I loved these so much! They are so easy, and so good! I laid them over white rice w/ broccoli on the side. They are also good leftover. I am making them again this weekend!

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Very yummy! I made exactly as directed and they tasted wonderful! Very moist, very easy, very delicious! I did spray the pan w/ Pam cooking spray, even though it didn't say to do so. Next time I will double the recipe so that it makes a 9x13 pan full, b/c now I don't have any left for my husband after taking them to work!Thank you!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Yummy! This cake is very good and very rich! The only thing I did differently was using fat free or less fat ingredients: fat free sweetened cond. milk & evaporated milk, 1% milk, fat free heavy cream, and wheat flour. Oh, I also seperated the eggs and beat the whites before adding them to the mixture, don't know if that makes a huge difference but that's what I did. The cake had a great consistency, I loved how it was soaked with the milks but it stayed together and didn't fall apart. While the cake was soaking in the milks, I drained the excess milk around the edges into a bowl and re-poured it over the cake so the cake soaked all of the liquid. There was a little liquid underneath the cake but most of it was absorbed. The topping was also very tasty!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
I'm sorry but I did not like these cookies at all!! I can't believe that over 3,000 ratings and 4 1/2 stars, these cookies came out so bad! They only thing that made them edible was the delicious frosting I topped them with. They had no flavor at all, it was like they needed a lot more sugar. I didn't have fun making them at all. The dough was hard to work with. I don't know why I am only 1 of the few who didn't like this.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
This frosting was very good!! I halfed the recipe and used butter instead of shortening. Unfortunately the cookies I made to top w/ this frosting were horrible! The only thing that made the cookies edible was the delicious frosting! Thank you!

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Ohhhh this was SO good!! I wish I could give it 50 stars! It was so incredibly easy and SO delicious! The only thing I think I did wrong was I think I blended the topping a little too much and it went from being crumbly to being gooey. So I had to spread the topping over the apples, which was a little difficult, instead of sprinkling it. But it still tasted amazing! I used granny smith apples which made it very tart, and I used the advice of other reviewers and did half brown/half white sugar. I also left it in the oven for an additional 10 minutes like other reviewers. I had it warm w/ vanilla ice cream and coffee while I watched a movie and I was in heaven! I predict I will make this again over and over! Thank you so much!!

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Well, after a few personal mistakes, these ended up turning out very well! Just a little tip to others who may be short a few brain cells as I seem to be: Be sure to leave a good 2 inches of oil from the top of the pan! B/c if it spills over, it WILL cause a stove fire! But I'm sure most ppl will know that. Now, with that aside, after my outrageous mistake, the next night I tried making these again, and they turned out wonderful! I have a huge weakness for mozzarella sticks! So it was probably very dangerous for me to find this recipe! (In more ways than one!) :-) But they were very good, and not messy to make! Oh, and I ended up coating them 3 times, after only 2 coats, the cheese ran out. Thank you so much!

Grandma's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Loved it!! I did not add the cloves only b/c they are kind of expensive, so I just used our favorite seasonings. I don't usually measure my ingredients, but I think I was pretty close on most of them except I probably put 2 tbls of brown sugar, and I definately did not put 1 whole cup of ketchup in there! That sounded a bit much! I went ahead and let it simmer for 30 minutes and all of the flavors really blended together! It was so yummy! I ended up making another batch so we could have leftovers, and I made my homemade french fries to go with them! Thank you so much!!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
Wow this was so yummy!! I followed other's advise and put the brown sugar and ketchup on top and reduced the milk to 1/2 cup. I also added worchestershire sauce to the ketchup. I used ground turkey (2 lbs) instead of beef, and I had to cook it an extra 25 minutes before it was done. I didn't use ginger, and I used ritz crackers instead of saltines. This was a very delicious meatloaf!
