Spinach Salad Supreme

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
this was good, but the dressing needs to stand for a few hours in the frig. for best flavor.

Chocolate Banana Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I only used the banana cream recipe from here (adding 1 fresh, but soft banana) and it turned out delicious - even better after refrigerated overnight. I then put my own twist on this cake making it a tribute to Elvis, lol! I didn't have boxed cake mix, so I used a dark chocolate cake recipe (from AR) and frosted the side of the cake with a peaunut butter frosting (also from AR)... it turned out great and has now been requested by my 13 for his b-day cake.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
My family loved it. It only took about an hour to cook, and looked beautiful. When I cut it, the center of the loaf crumbled, not sure what went wrong (cooked too long?). It was still really tasty!

great soup...made exactly but added 1 shredded carrot, garlic, 1 cup cheddar cheese and tabasco sauce... topped with scallions and more shredded cheddar.... not spectacular, but everyone enjoyed it and I'll make again.

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
followed recipe exactly, kept in frig 2 days before using. We didn't care for the flavor, prefer store bought sauce over this one...still looking for the perfect sauce.

Firecracker Scallops

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
very good! A bit tricky cooking scallops just right (don't cook in too much liquid or they won't brown). The horseradish sauce was a great addition, will spread it across tops next time instead of just a drizzle.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
This was excellent... who'd have thought to put cream soup in pot roast?! Be sure to add a couple halved onions, potatoes, carrots and celery ontop of the roast to go with all the delicious gravy! I also added minced garlic, and pepper. The right cut of roast is crucial, or it won't fall apart (my mistake)

Pumpkin Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I'd give it 10 stars! This is the tastiest fudge ever! I did mess up by not cooking it long enough, I didn't have a thermometer so I ended up with pumpkin caramel... that didn't stop us from eating it all with a spoon though. Second time came out perfectly as I bought myself a candy thermometer... this is a keeper!

Campbell's® Easy Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
They were okay. Maybe I did something wrong, but mine turned out really soggy. The recipe looks and sounds good, mine just didn't.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Great recipe, I've made several times with rave reviews. Couple changes: cut pork into large chunks (saves using cleaver at end and hastens cook time), omit coffee, add liquid smoke, add garlic.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
first attempt tasted delicious but I made the mistake of rolling too thin. After the pizza was cooked I brushed the crust with a garlic basting oil, it smelled and tasted incredible!

Peach Cobbler Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
So delicious I just ate 1/2 a mini loaf by myself! I followed some others' suggestions and upped the peaches to almost 2 cups chopped; substituted water with 1/3 cup oil and applesauce (1/2 each); added cinnamon and nutmeg and left out almond extract. Definitely a keeper...this bread is to-die-for!!!

One-Dish Chicken, Vegetable and Rice Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
my 10yo daugter wanted to make dinner so I gave her this recipe...she used a box of uncle ben's rice and picked out a bag of frozen veggies that she liked but otherwise followed recipe exactly. It was so easy to make she didn't even need help. It was a huge hit at dinner and everyone wanted more...next time we'll double or even triple the recipe!

Witches' Brew

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I used this recipe just for the hand. It was rather messy and filled 2 hands; and took more than a couple days to freeze solid enought to remove the glove. I wasn't able to get it to stick out of the punch without weighing it down so I just let it float. It still turned out impressively for my daughter's party. Next time I think I'll just freeze red jello or juice, it'll be cheaper and I think it will give the same effect. Thanks for the great idea anyway!
