Lit'l Smokies® Mummy Dogs

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
I used whole hotdogs sliced in half the long way and wrapped a whole triangle of crescent dough around each. They still had a mummy look, just no head wrap. Good balance of dog to dough and not such a choking hazzard for little chewers. My husband and I even liked these.

Chocolate Mousse Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
This was okay. It didn't hold well at all on the cupcakes. Pretty oozy and sloppy, so not the prettiest presentation. The flavor is good, but you are definitely frosting with 'mousse' and not 'frosting'...which I should have assumed from the recipe ingredients.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Pretty good granola. I made exactly as directed and found that amount of cinnamon to be pretty over-powering. It wasn't completely crunchy, like I had hoped it would remain, the next day, which was disappointing. It is easily scaled down for smaller batches. Overall, I will make it again, just using 1/4 of the cinnamon.

Pot Stickers Traditional

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
They were ok for us. I thought the texture of the pot sticker wrappers was too thick/chewy. The filling was decent, though I added a clove of chopped garlic, red pepper flakes and finely chopped carrot. This recipe was really time consuming to make. I have some filling left over, but dred having to assemble them again. We didn't care for the sauce at all. I might go with the frozen next time and put my efforts towards another part of the meal. I was really bummed these weren't as great as the reviews seemed. I don't doubt the wrappers or my cooking them had something to do with their lack of texture/taste. The directions for the steaming part didn't seem right and I relied on the other reviews for guidance.

Lime Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
This had great flavor! We used it in our Chipotle style burritos and they were awesome! I did what another suggested, used Jasmine rice, the juice of two limes, and forgot to zest the limes, so omitted that. It's worth a shot if you love the restaurant's.

Chicken Parmesan Bundles

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This was super easy and delicious!!! What a great recipe. I didn't top with cheese and sauce, just baked as directed and served on pasta with my homemade tomato sauce. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Wedding Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
This recipe is fantastic! Cream crisco and butter well (few minutes) before adding sugar. I too add a little popcorn salt. Add PS one cup at a time and incorporate well with each cup. Use all 8 cups! Then, begin adding milk to your desired consistency. It's awesome!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
The spice in these are great! Yummy cookie, but not as chewy and soft the next day. We added some mini chocolate chips that we enjoyed with the raisins. I would seriously underbake these as they firm up a lot. Tasty recipe though.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
I used the bread machine for this and I found the air bubbles to be too small for a classic baguette bread (over-kneaded in machine). I think next time I will knead the bread by hand and increase the oven temp for a crustier loaf. It turned out much like the bread they call 'french' in the grocery store. Good for french toast, not a great baguette.

Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
We made the recipe as it reads, only halved it, with all the cayenne pepper and found them to have good flavor. My husband did mention that they were too buttery tasting and didn't like that he had consumed a couple tablespoons of butter. We found it made a lot of the flour mixture, so maybe add some of the dry mixture to a bag with the wings and save the rest for the next wing craving. We used Paula Deen's hot sauce and needed more hot sauce than called for for good heat. Overall, a great baked wing that we will try again. My only complaint...make sure you plan ahead. The hour refrigeration time and 45 minute baking time sets back your wing chow time!

Bon Bons

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
My family has been making these for years at Christmas time. They are fabulous and an absolute must for coconut lovers! Refrigerate the mixture BEFORE making balls. Also, a 1 inch ball is really big and I can see why some thought them too sweet or rich. Mine are a fraction smaller. Once rolled to desired size, FREEZE the balls for dipping. Makes the process much easier. You don't want the chocolate too warm as it will coat the coconut balls thinly. A thicker coating is better tasting. Also, these freeze wonderfully! They are delightful right from the freezer too! And yes, the batch is quite large...perfect for sharing!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
I made these, but put them in an 8x8 pan. I also used frozen blueberries and it was wonderful. I'm using it again for brunch tomorrow. (as bread, not muffins) Bake at 400, but takes slightly longer than 25 minutes. Add 1/2 tsp cinnamon to batter as well.

Brownie Delight

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
This is a crowd pleaser EVERY TIME! I always have these ingredients on hand and it's pretty affordable and fast to make. 8 ounces cream cheese is enough. Chill between layers for easy spreading and warm cream cheese to room temp before beating. Try topping with chopped Andes mints. mmmmmm. and bring the recipe, you will get asked for a copy!!

Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I really didn't like the taste of the refrigerator biscuits. The pudding and sugar mixture caused it to turn out grainy and clumpy. It's not much harder to use frozen bread dough and make your own caramel mixture, which I will be doing from now on. I was surprised it was so bad.

Danish Pastry Apple Bars II

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
I used margarine in the crust instead of butter and think the texture of butter would be better/flakier. I also found the crust to be bland and could have used a little sugar in it. Otherwise, good bars. The liquid mixture was too wet and I had to add more flour before rolling (1 yolk + enough water to = 2/3 cup was too much), so an easy fix. You won't taste the cornflakes or get a crunch from them with each bite. They soak up the liquid from the sugar and apples. I thought 10 apples would be too much after cutting them, but they cook down a lot and ended up being perfect. I liked the 'apple pie in bar format' and will try this again. Using margarine does make it a very inexpensive dessert.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
I reduced the recipe for an 8x8 pan and used just 1 pound of ground beef and three cans of tomato sauce in place of the meat and sauce/paste listed. The flavors of the spices were great and it worked out perfectly.
