Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
I thought this glaze was pretty good. I used a few pointers from past reviews such as adding some brown sugar.I also cut up a whole pineapple and used the slices to decorate my ham, and with the remaining pineapple I smashed it up and added the juice to the glaze. I also put a few cherries on the ham for color. There are a few things you should do...first off tripple up on the tin foil that lines your pan! Otherwise you end up with a nice big sticky mess. And second, you should cut this recipe in half! Its such a waste. I thought because I was making a 10 pound ham that I would need all of that glaze and honestly I used half. But other than those 2 things it was really yummy!!

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
This was so delicious. Although I will try some other suggestions on the soup mix, I used the knorrs veggie mix and I found that even though it sat in the fridge for 3 hours before serving, some of the dehidrated veggies were a little crunchie. So next time I will try the leek soup mix instead. But besides that it was still super good!

Pita Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
This is a recipe where you can add any topping you like! I used chicken and green onion and peppers. I didnt have the "traditional" mozza cheese on hand so I used a little sharp cheddar. This is a great little snack that's quick to serve while watching a hockey game on TV, or as an appy at a party, or even as lunch!

Springtime Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
I really enjoyed this potato salad. It's a good switch from my usual one. I loved the crunch and color the radishes gave. I used dill pickles (Im not a fan of sweet) and they added a nice little zing. This recipe is great in the summer, especially when you can use fresh radishes and home made pickles!

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
This dip was wonderful!! It really tastes like a hot wing! There are 2 things I will do next time is 1) Add another cup or so of cooked chicken and 2) add a full cup of hot sauce instad od the listed amount(just because I LOVE the flavor of Franks hot sauce). But other than these 2 personal modifications it was a crowd pleaser!! And I can't wait to be invited to another gathering so I can make this again! :)

Crispy Mashed Potato Pancake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
I thought these were pretty good. Its nice to do something with leftover mashed potatos...they usually get thrown out at my house. But I would change a few things next time 1) I would make the potato cakes really thin, I made them too thick and they didnt get as crisp as I wanted, and 2) maybe I would add some green onion for flavor and color. Other than that they were pretty good =)

Fiesta Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
These were pretty good. I didnt add an egg and I found that the meat just fell apart when eating and was kind of a mess. So I think that the egg will help with that. I added extra salsa into the meat mixture which was a good thing because after tasting them I thought they could use a little more...maybe a full cup. I put cheddar cheese on top and they were yummy! I will be making them again! Thanks =)

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
These were sooo yummy! Soft, chewey everything you would want in a cookie. I didnt have butter so I used margarine instead and they turned out perfect. I also used white chocolate chips (because thats what I had on hand). Next time I'm gonna use the same base recipe and instead of chocolate chips Im going to use dried cranberries and slivered almonds. I think that would be tasty!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
I really enjoyed these wraps. They are fresh and hearty and have a nice sweet flavor. I served them at a party and they were eaten up in a jiffy! I will make these again and again. (I made these with both butter lettuce and romaine lettuce, and if it's in your budget spring for the butter lettuce, it makes such a difference!)

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
I thought this was a pretty simple and hearty stew. I added some celery, about 1 cup also some garlic about 2 cloves. I didnt thicken it up at the end because I used russet potatos and they seemed to do the job. I made dumplings to go with it instead of bread or buns. All of the ingredients didnt fit inside my crock pot, and I have a fairly huge one. So what I did was used a roasting pan and set the oven to 350F and cooked the stew for 1 hour before turning the oven down to 200F. I let the stew cook for 5 hours stiring once in a while. It turned out great and the meat was tender and falling apart. I will make this again for sure!

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
I love peanut butter cookies and this was a great recipe. Its simple, tastes great and makes alot! I found if I left them in for the time suggested the bottoms got too dark, so I just kept and eye on them and took them out when they were slightly golden. Great recipe!

Broccoli Salad I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
When I was making the dressing to this salad, I was thrown off by the amount of red wine vinegar, it seemed too strong. Even after it was all mixed in it was way too much so I was actually going to throw the salad out. But we were going for dinner at a friends and this is what I made...BUT once dinner time came around and the salad flavors had time to merry it was FANTASTIC! All it needed was a little time. So I would suggest to everone DONT be thrown off by the vinegar, and make it at least 1 hour in advance! This was a great salad =)
