Bacon Quiche Tarts

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
my rating may not be fair because a few things went wrong with mine. 1). I accidentally bought honey flavored biscuts and 2). I made them much too large. They tasted like quiche to me and nothing special. I will re write my review when I correct the problems that I had.

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This is my new favorite cornbread! I didn't have the recommended cheese on hand, only sharp cheddar so that's all that I used. The only thing was the next day, it seemed sweeter to me then the night before....almost too sweet for my taste so next time I will cute back to 3/4 cup and see how that works. This is really an awesome cornbread recipe and even my picky son, LOVED it!:))

Cannoli Cake Roll

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I didnt have the right size pan so my cake turned out a little bigger than it should have and because of that, my filling wasnt as thick as I would have liked it. I follwed the advice of others and drained the ricotta on a cheese cloth in the regrig for over an hour and the consistency of the filling was perfect...Not runny at all. I used reg size choc chips and used a food processer to make them more fine. Next time I might ad a little extra to the filling. One thing missing in the directions was what to do with the TBSP of sugar at the end, so I added about 1 tbsp to the nuts and choc for the topping plus I added a big dash to my whipped cream topping because I prefer it a bit sweeter. The cake was good the night I served it But it was GREAT the second day!!! MUCH better! Next time I will definatly make at least two days in advance. It needs the time for the flavors to come together.

Orange Pecan French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Its so funny because no one wanted me to prepare this because my boyfriend thought it was weird to use french bread (what does he know?), and my son hates food with nuts in it. Well when I flipped these out of the pan on christmas morning EVERYONE was suprised at how yummy these looked. There little eyes lit up!!! Not only did they look incredible, they tasted just as good as they looked! We decided that whipped ream would be the best on them but my son prefered them with nothing. This is such a great recipe....thank you for sharing! Update; Made these once again for Chrismas Brunch and once again, amazing. Prepare the nite before. Didnt change a thing, but again, served with fresh whipped cream to tone down the sweetness. Excellent! No syrup needed.:)

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Amazing. I left out the raisins and cooked it in two round cake pans. I reduced the time by 15 min as someone else suggested and it was great. I made a basic cream cheese frosting but added 1/2 of the juice of a lemon to it, and it was wonderful!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
I followed the directions almost exactly and didnt have any trouble with assembly at all. Heres what I did..I lightly rolled the cookie dough into a ball and pressed it into the the palm of my hand...not totally flat but more like a well.Put the peanut butter filling in the center and wrap edges around it. It worked out fine. I did refridgerate the center for about 15 min and left cookie dough on counter at room temp before assembly. I read that someone else cuts down the sugar for the center but in my opinion it has to be sweet because the cookie part is not. In fact it kinda lacks flavor a little. I also found them to be a bit dry. With that said, these are really good but definitely not the best thing i ever ate. OH..P.S; I did ad 3 tsps of milk to cookie batter so it would be easier to work with

Holiday Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
This was super easy to make but it was almost too flavorful for my taste. I see why people like it so much with cream cheese...It helps to cut down the stronge flavors a little bit.

Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
This cake was amazing. I made it almost exactly as written and everthing was fine. Only thing different for me was (1) I used a 9 in pan instead of 10. (2) I divided the oreos for the crust using half with cream and half without and (3) I only used half of the cinnamon. After baking it, it was really late so (4) I refrigerated it and did the chocolate topping the next day. Then, I let it sit in the frig for another day after that. I had no problem with there being to much filling and had plenty of room for the chocolate too....maybe it helped letting the cake settle and fall a little. Next time I think I may leave out the cinnamon and maybe only do plain oreo's for crust. The crust was the only part that didnt totally knock my socks off. With that said, this was a total show stopper and my guests were totally impressed!!! Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
The sauce had great flavor but the chops did nothing for me. I really wanted this recipe to be wonderful because it was so pretty and so easy to make...but it just didnt do it for us. Needs lots of seasoning before you brown!

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
At first I thought it was missing something but I went back and added exrta sesame oil and a little extra soy, and it fixed what it was lacking before. My 15yr old loved it and I have to say, I love it too. Really easy to make and I think next time Im gonna add a little extra ham in there. I really liked the taste of that in there.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
I made this exactly as written and it was AMAZING! I loved the pudding and wouldnt change a thing about that. Alot of stirring involved, so for those who didnt get the right consistancy it may be because you didnt give it long enough on the stove..on med high. Stir Stir Stir. What I will change next time is the bananas. I thought there was to much banana for my taste so next time I will reduce it to 3 and mash them and mix them into the pudding. I didnt like the layer of bananas the next day, so that should resolve that. Other then the that I thought it was a great recipe and will be making this for years to come. Thanks!

Bronco Burger

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Hmm, well these were good but I expected so much more. I scaled it back to 4 servings so that may have changed the flavor a little. I might try these again...will have to see.

Easy Summer Pie

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I love this recipe! I did make one change though, and used a refrigerated pie crust instead of frozen. It was much easier. Just roll it onto a cookie sheet and bake....easy! It is so light and fresh tasting, but I think it tasted more like a pastry then a desert. I have no problem letting my son eat this for breakfast....its a great way for him to get his fruit!

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Mmmm! This is really good! However...I cannot imagine how sweet it would be if you ad the sugar. I left it out all together and Im glad I did. It still borders on too sweet...but its really good. I will cut the condensed milk down a bit next time I make it.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
I had some trouble gilling these. I used metal skewers and had a really hard time turning them. The meat kept spinning around....I didnt think I was gonna serve them because of how un evenly they cooked but when I brought them inside and tasted one, I loved them...My son did too. I added mushrooms to them also, but didnt marinade the vegies until the last ten minutes or so. They turned out great. Next time I will try wooden skewers for sure.
