Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
these were very good, and quite easy to make, however they are EXTREMELY sweet. i think next time i will cut back on the amount of sugar or something. i could only eat a few and i am a sugar freak. be sure to make the balls really small so they arn't too overwhelming.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
oh man this was good. so rich too. i did what others recommended and used a full cup of cocoa powder. like another reviewer had experienced my cake came out as flat as it was when it went in, it tasted fine just didnt rise. i then found out my baking powder had expired before the exp date.

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
i just made these, forgot to add the sugar, but they still turned out delicious. next time ill add the sugar and maybe increase the temp. they became pretty hard by the time they browned.

Gram's Snow Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I changed a few things on this recipe to make it the way my grandmother made them. With these changes i assure you, you cant go wrong. the directions are a little vague so here is my way. i mixed 2 1/2 cups of flour with 1/2tsp salt and set aside. then i mixed 1cup of butter with 1 egg white and 1 1/2tsp vanilla. Then i added 1/3cup of powder sugar(aka confectioner's sugar) then i added the flour mixture and 1/2-1cup of finely chopped walnuts. i rolled them into small balls, a little smaller than a golfball and baked them at 400F (205c) for 8-10min then i rolled them in more powder sugar (confectioner's sugar) to coat. these are great cookies with a slight crumble. full of flavor if you fallow the changes i made.

Clams Italiano

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
thought i would give this one a try, 1/2 cup of butter sounded like a lot, so i changed a few things. First i just used 1/8 cup butter. and since i didnt have any wine i substituted apple juice. also i added cream to make it a yummy creamy sauce to go with the clams.kept all the other spices called for. im not much if a clam eater, but my father in-law ate the entire batch and asked if there was more.

Becki's Oven Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
these turned out pretty good. i made it a few times, first time i made it as directed and like others said, it came out tasting a bit too much like catchup, so the second time i made it i halved the amount of catchup and doubled the amount of Worcestershire sauce because i like mine not overly sweet. also i made sure to take them out every few minutes and spoon the sauce back over the chicken so it was heavily coated. overall this was really good and ill keep this for a quick and easy week night dinner.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
HELP!! okay, after seeing all the reviews i had to try this. it was my first time and i think it went pretty smooth. although i ran into a little problem, i prepared everything according to what the directions said except they dont really have sour cream where im currently living and i did some research and substituted it with plain yogurt. im not sure if that caused the problem. i put it in the oven at 2pm and turned off the oven at 3. let it sit in there for an hour till it cooled to room temp, i then moved it into the Air conditioned room since im in the dessert and its hot here, to cool for an additional 2hrs, i had no cracks but the center was still a bit wiggly so i put it in the fridge for another 2hrs. STILL wiggly! its 11pm now and the cake has been in the freezer for an hr and the center is still not firm. what went wrong? is it fixable? help :( im still giving this 5 stars because i feel the problem was caused by me not the recipe. UPDATE: ok after 8 hrs it finally firmed up. no cracks no sinks just beautiful creamy heaven. the first piece i sliced had a bite gone before i even got the topping on it. i should have made two. NOTE: make sure you leave plenty of time for it to rest and firm up, overnight if possible.
