Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
These are great! I agree with doubling the frosting, because I like loads of frosting. After looking at the many, many pictures of this recipe, I do have one suggestion. Make sure to spread the frosting on while the rolls are still hot. This makes the frosting melt down around the sides and into the spirals of the rolls, making them extra ooey-gooey-good!

Corn Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
I noticed one post said that older tortillas made better chips. This is because the older tortillas will have dried out a little bit. I used to work at a fast-food place where we made fresh tortillas and fresh-fried tortilla chips and served them with all kinds of toppings and fillings. We didn't use the fresh made tortillas for our chips because the water content is too high. I would definitely suggest using older tortillas, or letting the tortillas sit out between a couple of paper towels for half an hour before frying them.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Thanks for a GREAT recipe!! These are AWESOME! My kids and I love making these. I made only one change, not to the recipe, but to the preparation. Instead of just dipping the pretzels in the baking soda solution, I made a larger batch of the solution, heated it to a simmer on the stove, and simmered the pretzels for 15-30 seconds, removed them with a slotted spoon, and drained on paper towels for a few seconds. This gave them a much chewier crust, more like the Hot Sam mall pretzels I grew up loving. I do agree with one post's suggestion not to use parchment paper, but spray the pan with Pam instead. Every time I try using the paper, my pretzels stick badly, but if I spray the pan, they slide right off. Happy baking!!

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
Just pulled these off the BBQ and OH MY GOSH! They are AMAZING. I doubled the marinade recipe for about 1-1/2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breast cut into chunks. After threading the meat on the skewers, I tossed some baby asparagus in the marinade and baked them at 400 degrees for as long as it took to grill the kebobs. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks for an awesome recipe!!

Kathy's Easy Chile Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
We had this for dinner last night and it turned out really good. We did take the advice of a couple other reviewers and used corn instead of peas, added a whole packet of "mild" taco seasoning mix, and added an additional can of cream of chicken soup, but used only 1 can full of milk. It was filling, yummy, and easy to make. In fact, my 12-year-old is the one who made it! I think I want to try this as a burrito filling next time!

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
I love corn on the cob fixed this way. It's important to use Cotija cheese...we tried Parmesan once and it was just not the same. I do use a shortcut, though. I buy "Mayonesa" brand mayonnaise...it already has the lime in it!

Chicken Tortilla Soup IV

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
This soup is delicious and the recipe is so easy! My 12-year-old daughter cooked dinner tonight with very little coaching from me. We did tweak the recipe ever so slightly. We doubled the recipe so we would have leftovers. We didn't have any salsa, so we used half a can of Mexican style stewed tomatoes instead. We increased the chili powder a bit and also sprinkled cheese on top. My daughters both loved it and even my macaw had some! (I know...that sounds sort of cannibalistic...a macaw eating chicken LOL)

Chicken Dijon

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
We made this recipe for dinner last night and it was very good. I will definitely make it again! I salted and peppered the chicken before sauteeing it in the butter, just because I always do that. The sauce was really thick, so next time I think I'll add a splash more chicken broth. I served it with buttered egg noodles and green beans. I wish I had doubled the recipe so we could have leftovers today!

Ranch Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
This recipe as-is makes great burgers. If I want to add a little something extra to an already delicious burger, I'll throw in some shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled up cooked bacon...YUMMMMM!! We usually put prepared ranch dressing and bacon on the buns, too. These burgers always get gobbled up.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
This turned out delicious, even though I goofed and used water instead of chicken broth! I'll be sure to do it "right" the next time LOL! Also, I used jasmine rice instead of long-grain. Jasmine and basmati rice tend to stay fluffier and not as sticky when they're cooked.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
I just realized I have never rated/reviewed this recipe! I first made these little guys for my brother-in-law's birthday party...he loves penguins. Everyone thought they were so cute. I have made them several times since then and taken them to potlucks, picnics, and other gatherings. I never go home with leftovers!

Kitty Litter Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
I made this cake for my daughter's 6th birthday party (at her request). Everyone thought it was the cutest thing they've ever seen and, once they got around the whole "kitty poop" gross-out factor, they all thought it was delicious. I didn't use the german chocolate cake mix, though. I thought it would darken the "sand" too much. Instead, I used a spice cake mix and a white cake mix. This got me the perfect kitty litter color. The green-colored cookie crumbs really add to the realism! Be careful not to put too many Tootsie Roll "droppings". I think I used a total of 12, rather than the entire 12-ounce bag.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
This was really yummy. My kids and I gobbled it down. I had a bit of problem with it being kind of sticky, though, rather than fluffy like the kettle corn you get at the fair. Gonna have to experiment with it a bit to get it just right. Overall, though, it was a really good recipe that we will definitely make again. Thank you!

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
I made this for a bake sale. It made 12 muffins and 3 mini-loaves. I ended up with about an extra cup of zucchini grated, so I just threw it in for extra moisture. I omitted the nuts from the batter, made the muffins, and then put the remaining batter in the mini loaf pans and sprinkled chopped pecans on top. They were a big hit!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
These smelled heavenly as they were baking and tasted even better! I doubled the cinnamon sugar to roll the balls of dough in, thinking there wouldn't be enough, and I ended up wasting a lot. Guess I'll trust the recipe next time!

Mom's Yummy Onion Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I made this to take to a community BBQ this evening and came home with an empty pan! It was fabulous. I didn't have any beef bullion, so I substituted beef broth for the water and bullion. Since bullion is so salty, I sprinkled some Tony Cacheres' Creole Seasoning on the onions as they were cooking to make up for the lack of flavor from not using bullion. I will definitely make this one over and over and over again!

One Bowl Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
I love this fudge recipe because the finished product comes out smooth, not grainy like when you use that nasty, gooey marshmallow stuff in a jar. This is very versatile when it comes to mix-in's, too. I've added nuts, crushed peppermint candies, and even crumbled pretzels.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
My 12-year-old daughter made these this afternoon and we just had them for dessert. Following the suggestions of other reviewers, I had her cut the amount of butter in half. That wasn't quite enough to keep everything together, so next time I think we'll try 3/4 cup. Other than being a bit crumbly, though, these were very good! We'll definitely make them again.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
These turned out fabulous! I created a natural truss for the legs by cutting slits in the skin and inserting the legs into them in a criss-crossed fashion. I covered the pan with foil for the 50 minutes' cooking time, then turned the heat back up to 450 and uncovered the pan to crisp up the skin. As a result, the birds were moist and juicy. We served them with roasted garlic baby red mashed potatoes and green beans. We used the sauce as gravy over the potatoes. I think next time I will roast whole heads of garlic rather than individual cloves. I think that way it will get softer and it will be easier to incorporate it into the sauce. Overall a great recipe!

Easy Garlic and Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
Very good! I used extra garlic, because we like a lot of garlic. Also, after squeezing lemon juice on top, I put thin slices of lemon on top during baking for extra citrus flavor.
