Best Ever Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
This is a very rich cheese bread! I followed others advice and used half the mayo and was glad I did! I only had marble cheese, but it was great. Also used bread because I didn't have a loaf but it was a bit soggy so would imagine would be perfect on a french loaf.

Almond Buttercrunch Candy I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
This received rave reviews from everyone who tried it. It wasn't easy though, my candy thermometer isn't very good, so I tested using cold water. I got trigger happy with my first batch and removed it too soon, so it never hardened and ended up like really sweet fudge. Second try I forced myself to let it go a bit longer and it turned out perfectly. I, like others, didn't put a layer of chocolate on the bottom, and instead of milk chocolate, I broke up pieces of Hershey's Special Dark chocolate bars (2).

Sesame Snaps

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
These are delish! They taste a lot like the caramel corn that I make at Christmas, but with the added flavour of toasted sesame seeds. Followed the recipe to a tee, baked for 9 minutes and they turned out great!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
This is a great recipe and receieved rave reviews from my guests as well as requests for the recipe! Following previous review comments, I used a mango instead of kiwis and coated the cinnamon chips by shaking in a bag of cinnamon sugar after spraying with cooking spray. I didn't see a need to re-spray after coating either.

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
Loved this! I added garlic salt as well as garlic and onion powder, to the breading and I used panko instead of bread crumbs. Baked at 450 for 7 minutes on each side, spraying with Pam before baking too.

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
My family loves this spaghetti sauce! I followed other reviewers and always puree in cooked carrots with the tomatoes. I also simmer the sauce with a potatoe cut into quarters and it does wonders in removing the acidity! Very easy to increase recipe size and freeze sauce for quick weekday meals!

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This turned out fantastic! I was a little nervous about how it would turn out because the marinade itself didn't taste very good (I was trying to taste-test it to be sure it was sweet enough before adding the pork). I trusted all of the good reviews though and let it go and it tasted great! I followed as directed, except that I used a bit more brown sugar. I did follow other reviewers' advice and made extra marinade and boiled it with chicken broth and cornstarch to make a sauce.

Cinnamon Bread Delight

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
This was easy to make and my family loved it! I didn't change the recipe at all...except for adding a bit more cinnamon, just because my husband loves it!

Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I just made these this morning with my 3-year old and they turned out great! It was hard to get him to stop eating them, especially once they were iced! I added a bit more icing sugar than called for and dipped the cookies into the icing and placed them on parchment paper. Time will tell how long these 90-some cookies last us!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
I'm a rookie working with fondant, but my first attempt at this recipe was a success! I followed previous recommendations to mix color into melted marshmallows as well as use my KA mixer to do all the hard/dirty work! I only had to do minimal hand kneading to finish it off at the end! Tastes much better than the store-bought stuff I have! Love it!

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Delicious! I made this when we went camping (I know, not really "roughing it" with a crock pot in the trailer!) and everyone loved it! I didn't use any coffee, just beef broth. About an hour before we were ready to eat, I shredded the pork (which was a cheaper cut than suggested), removed most of the beef broth, and then added in Bullseye BBQ sauce. I added a bit of the broth back in afterwards to maintain the consistency/moisture I was looking for. Then just let it cook on low until we were ready to eat!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
I don't eat sweets much but my husband and kids loved these and gobbled them up! I took them out of the oven when they appeared almost done and they were perfect as they seemed to continue to cook a bit after coming out and would have been hard if I left them much longer!

Twice-Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
OMG, soooo good! I love stuffed baked potatoes and this tastes exactly like them without having to maintain the potato skin! The only thing I changed with the recipe was I omitted green peppers as my husband doesn't care for them and I used green onions (no need to fry) instead of regular onion.

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
This was super-tasty! My hubby doesn't like spinach, but did enjoy this. We tried using havarti slices for melting on top and it was good as well. The spinach was a bit strong though, so I gave it a 4 rather than a 5.

This ganache was super-easy to make received rave reviews! Whoever thought something with such a fancy name would be so easy to make?! I used it as a filling for a golden cake.

Garbanzo Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This turned out great! My son and I loved it. The oregano was a little too much flavor for my husband, but he tends to be a plain meat and potato man! I added onion and increased the garlic by a clove or so. I also tried melting cheese on it as previous reviews mentioned and it was great both with and without it!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs II

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
This makes a very yummy sweet and sour sauce, my husband and 3 year-old son loved it! I used regular vinegar since that's all I had and did add a bit more soy sauce as it is very sweet. I already had meatballs in the freezer that I had made previously, so didn't use that oart of this recipe.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I was a little leery since the recipe is so simple with relatively few ingredients, but my family loved it! I didn't add as much pepper as it calls for, and added frozen peas and corn and a bit of ground ginger as well and just a little more soy sauce. Very good for a quick meal to use up leftovers!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Very good! My family ate the whole pan! I didn't use the icing part of this recipe, mostly because I was being lazy...I just melted chocolate chips on top once it came out of the oven and my family loved it that way.

Zucchini Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Very yummy! I was a bit skeptical, but I had tons of zucchini in my garden this year, so I tried them anyway and they were delicious! I didn't have ground cloves so used nutmeg instead and I made half with raisins and the other half with chocolate chips.
