Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
This fondant was absolutely delicious! I had never made fondant before and was initially concerned by how sticky this was. After it completely cooled, it was much easier to work with and was just like a dough. I am very new to cake decorating and am playing around with different recipes, but this will be my go to fondant. I will use this as the base for chocolate fondant as well.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
I made this for a Christmas function, and it received mixed reviews. Most people said it was "okay, but too sweet" and only about half of it got eaten, which was probably by me. To say I have a sweet tooth is a drastic understatement, and I have never uttered the phrase "too sweet" in my life. I made this recipe without making any changes, but unfortunately I think I was the only one who liked it.

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
This pasta salad is fantastic. It's a little pricey, but definitely worth it. I omit the olives and bell pepper because I don't like them, but my mother makes this with no changes and everyone loves it. Even without the olives and bell pepper this recipe is great and doesn't "seem to be lacking something." 5 stars all the way!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
I made this cake for a family get together and topped it with the satiny chocolate glaze (as recommended by many reviewers), and I thought it turned out great. It did not taste "chemically" at all like some of the negative reviews have stated, but be warned that this cake is EXTREMELY rich. This is not a problem for me because I love chocolate, but it did receive mixed reviews. A lot of people said it was "too sweet." I give this recipe 4 stars because it is a delicious chocolate cake, but not everyone who tried it agreed.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
This bread pudding is great and really easy to make. Bread pudding is my favorite dessert, and I have tried so many different kinds over the years, but the old fashioned way is still my favorite. The first time I made this I stuck to the recipe exactly, and I have made it several times since without making any changes. It's just that good!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
This soup is so rich and creamy! Better than any restaurant tomato soup I've ever eaten. This is always the first soup I make come winter. Recipe is perfect as is.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
These cookies are ridiculously easy and delicious. I will eat lemon anything and these are one of the best lemon cookies I've tried. I didn't make any changes and have no plans to in the future.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
This is an easy and delicious cream cheese frosting! No need to make changes, but I always add pecans when I use this frosting for my carrot cake. So good!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
The name of this marinade is certainly fitting. Hands down the best steak marinade I have ever tasted. I made the recipe as is and wouldn't dare change a thing. A well deserved 5 stars!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
This is my go to chicken and dumplings recipe, and it is so incredibly easy! I add a bag of frozen mixed veggies to mine, use 1 can of grands biscuits instead, and use chicken broth instead of water. These actually taste better than my great aunt's (who is known for her dumplings) and hers are homemade! My favorite winter dish. A well deserved 5 stars!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
You don't have to be vegetarian to love these burgers! They are a little messy because they don't hold together as well as a regular burger, but they are really yummy!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
These were pretty good as is, but next time I will use either frozen or canned biscuits and just use the topping for this recipe. I wasn't a huge fan of the taste of the actual biscuit, but the topping was very tasty.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
best guacamole ever! I add chopped pickled jalapenos for an extra kick. 1 batch of this lasts about 15 minutes in my house. So good!

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Wow! These were so great. I made this for a BBQ and everybody was raving about how tasty they were. I took advice from other reviews and blanched the jalapenos before stuffing them. I love spicy food, but I'm really sensitive to it...like even mild salsa makes my nose run, but after blanching the jalapenos, it was a perfect balance between mildly spicy and smoky from the bacon. Will definitely make these again.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
I made this for a BBQ and with all the rave reviews I was expecting to be blown away. This was pretty good. Definitely worth trying, but I may not make this again. I prefer regular fruit with a cream cheese fruit dip over this.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
My sister makes this dip for every family function, and I can't eat it fast enough. She omits the ranch and it is just so yummy! I could eat it with a spoon. When we make it though, we bake 2 large chicken breasts in the oven and splash it with franks buffalo sauce; then we shred the chicken with 2 forks. Great recipe for parties!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
These were amazing! So good! They were a little time consuming and a bit messy, but so worth it. I made these for a super bowl party and they just disappeared. Everybody raved about how good they were.
