Pumpkin Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I made this for my dad who is bedridden due to recent surgery, so I used low fat cream cheese and Splenda to try and make it a little healthier. It was a little dry for some reason but when paired with ice cream or simply covered in whip cream, it was perfect.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Mmmmmmmm. As a potato lover, these really hit the spot. Next time I will use a little less butter (there was a pool left in the bowl) and with the tang that the lemon gives it, you can cut the salt in half.

Famous Coconut-Almond Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I made these for Christmas. I had a hard time getting them to maintain their shape but all the coconut lovers enjoyed them.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
These turned out well. I didn't have enough red food coloring on hand to make them really red but they still had a redish tint.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
These turned out well. Super moist. One batch made about 20 muffins for me and I made a little more of the streusel topping because I loved it so much. I liked these and I'm not a fan of pumpkin.

Chocolate Cake Shot

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
This is pretty good. Not as good as the bar's version, but that could just be my fault. I am eager to try it with citron vodka like other reviewers mentioned.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Yum! Just came out of the oven and I am eating it as we speak. Reminds me of quiche, but with less egg. I will definitely make this again.

Peanut Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I took this cake to work and everyone loved it! The one I made was a little bit dry and crumbly but still yummy.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Very good macaroni recipe. On my first batch I used 2 eggs and it was a little funky so for the next batch I only used 1 egg and it turned out great. Very creamy and gooey. I added more cheese because I am a cheese-o-holic. I also used 2 cups half and half like other reviewers mentioned.

Marbled Almond Roca

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Yum! I made a bunch for Christmas and it was a huge hit. I followed the recipe exactly except I used about 3/4 cup of each type of chip, simply because I love chocolate. I found that sometimes not all the chips would melt enough to spread so I laid a towel or some plastic wrap over the pan for a few minutes.

Holiday Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Simple, delicious recipe. Made a bunch for Christmas. It is good with just the layer of white chocolate but it's also very good with a layer of semisweet on the bottom. I don't like the look of it when you add enough crushed candy to make it taste really minty so I would definitely add peppermint extract to the chocolate. Even if you are only doing the layer of white, the extract makes it really taste like peppermint.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This will turn anyone who hates green bean casserole into a lover. The trick is to use fresh steamed green beans instead of canned. If you use canned it is really salty, too mushy and the sour cream is way too strong. But if you use fresh green beans everything is perfect. I also mixed the Ritz with the classic French fried onions because I like a really crispy top.

Peppermint Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
These are wonderful! I made them fairly small hoping that people wouldn't eat as many of them but that didn't work. They were too good!

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I made these and took them to work. They were a big hit with all my coworkers. I work nights and something like this is just the pick-me-up I need! My coworker said "If I wasn't married with a kid on the way, I would ask you to marry me."

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
TO DIE FOR! I made these for work and they were gone in 20 minutes. I made half with the vanilla and half with almond extract. I also covered each with almond bark and then drizzled white chocolate over the top and coated with nuts. I will definitely be putting these is the Christmas goodie bags this year!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This pie was amazing and I'm not a pie fan. I made it for a work party and got so many compliments. I used 4 Granny Smith apples and 4 Fuji apples. The sweet with the sour really gave it a kick. When buying the ingredients the clerk at the store told me that his secret to a great apple pie is to grate orange peel over the top and that made it even more amazing!

Elizabeth's Extreme Chocolate Lover's Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I made this cake for a coworkers birthday party. He suggested that I make a simple box cake, but where's the fun in that? After everyone had tried it they said it was the best chocolate cake they had ever had! I doubled the recipe and made a 4 layer cake. The first batch I added regular water instead of boiling because the ingredients didn't specify temperature. It turned out fine, maybe a little denser. And there is a flaw with the vanilla; the ingredients say 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla and the directions say 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla. I used 1 1/2 teaspoons and it turned out great. Thanks for this recipe!

Cookies 'n' Creme Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
This recipe was very easy to follow and has a delicious result. I found that the best way to break up the cookies was to simply break them into 4 quarters and they were the perfect size.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
I love roasted veggies. I also add chopped carrots and zucchini. A good twist on these is to add a little horseradish sauce to the mix. It really adds a zest!
