Slow Cooker Lime Chicken with Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Delicious and really easy! I didn't use thyme and used chili powder & cumin instead, to spice things up a bit. But this chicken was so moist and it turned out really well.

Green N Gold Egg Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I thought this recipe was really easy to make. But, I was disappointed with the blandness. Even after reading other people's reviews and trying to add a little "something" myself (cheese and some spices), I still wasn't impressed. I would probably exchange spinach and use broccoli and cheddar and possibly some ham.

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Great recipe but requires attention and caution! My first batch did not work at all. The filling was lumpy and didn't mix well at all. That caused the vanilla wafers to "float" up into the middle of the cheesecakes. The flavor was good though. So, when I tried again, I made sure to cream the cream cheese alone at first and made sure it was very smooth. Then added the other ingredients. I tried doing a crumb crust with cookie crumbs and butter, but found that wasn't a great combination since the butter soaked through the cupcake papers. Otherwise, when prepared correctly, these are tasty and very cute.

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies II

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
These certainly disappeared for me. I used white chocolate chips instead of semisweet, but I (and everyone else) still thought they were delicious. My only complaint is that they really fell apart once I tried to get them out of the pan. Next time, I am going to try refrigerating them overnight before trying to remove and/or cut.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Excellent recipe! I read the other reviews and was expecting to end up with a problem-child recipe. On the contrary, I thought these were great. The person who commented that the dough is a little thick (like paper mache) is correct. Otherwise, pretty easy to prepare. And they disappeared quickly when I brought them in to work! Will definitely make them again.

Sangria! Sangria!

Delicious and very pretty! I used gingerale and thought the taste was perfect for a BBQ on a hot summer day.

Stuffed Shells IV

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
Tasty! I wasn't a pro about stuffing the shells, so it wasn't the prettiest dish I've ever made - but it turned out tasting great, which is what counts. Next time, I will probably reduce or maybe eliminate the parsley as I thought it was overpowering.

Strawberry Tiramisu Trifle

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was a great dessert! I got lots of nice compliments and it was gone in the first sitting. I did as some of the other reviewers suggested - substituting pound cake for ladyfingers, increasing the amount of coffee and adding kahlua. But otherwise, loved this recipe. It's beautiful, delicious and surprisingly easy to put together!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Last year, I added this recipe to the assorted Christmas treats I give out every year. They were a huge hit!! Obviously, I kept them on the list for this year. But, I tried a new trick that made them much easier. The first year, I noticed that the cake bite portion seemed to fall apart when I tried to dip or cover it in chocolate. This year, I did a few things to combat that: 1 - I did not use the entire cake mixed with the frosting, which increased my frosting/cake ratio. 2 - I used a silicon mold to make the "bites". I formed the cake part into little squares. Then, I filled each mold about half full of chocolate, put in the cake piece, and then filled the rest with chocolate. They came out a lot more uniformly and I didn't have to worry about them falling apart. I am so excited about this recipe! It's a huge hit. This year, I will also be trying out some new decoration ideas.

Cheesy Artichoke Mini Tarts

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
AWESOME! I made these for a bridal shower and they got rave reviews. I could not find wonton wrappers, so I used phyllo shells (found in the freezer section). That change ended up with about double the number quoted in the recipe, but it still worked well and tasted great too.

Fresh Lime Curd

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
This was so great! I used this as a topping for cheesecake and was really impressed with the combination of tart and sweet. Plus, the bright green was great for a splash of color.

Cucumber Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I made this for a BBQ and it was a hit. Everyone enjoyed the dill flavor because it is something different than the traditional potato salad.

Jalapeno Popper Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
I added pepperoni to the toppings. This was a big hit for everyone but me. I was really disappointed with this pizza and thought it was dry and heavy. However, everyone else really enjoyed it so maybe it was just me. I probably won't make it again though.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
These turned out SO SMALL. They had great flavor, but I was quite disappointed with the size. I will be trying a few different things to fix that.

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
A tasty glaze that works well for chicken also. But, I was a little disappointed that the meat wasn't more flavorful. Next time, will use throughout grilling.

Buffalo Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
The chicken ended up being a bit dry. I also added jalepenos and used pepper jack cheese, to make it spicy (following advice of other reviewers). I would make again, but will adjust the cooking time.
