Easy Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
My goodness!! So very easy, and it was delicious. My husband couldn't stop raving about it. The corn bread mixture makes it extra yummy. I omitted the sour cream, and did NOT drain the corn. I will be making this again and again. It's a no-fuss dish - I was able to throw everything together and put it in the oven all while tending to the main course. Try this recipe!!

Baked French Fries II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
What a great alternative to regular french fries! I made this exactly as written, and served it alongside "Slow Cooker Pulled Pork", also from this site. Delicious meal. I lined my pan with foil (sprayed with Pam) as another reviewer suggested, and it made cleanup a breeze! They lifted up so easily. Also, my fries weren't browning by the end of the 25 minutes so I put on the broiler for a couple minutes and it crisped them up a bit more. Thank you for a great and easy recipe!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Wow! This is so simple, and yet it tastes delicious. I used Barq's root beer and Sweet Baby Ray's Original sauce. After 6 hours, I drained the liquid and then shred the pork. The tenderloin pulled apart SOOO easily. I mixed in the BBQ sauce and kept it on Low until my side dish was ready (Baked French Fries II from this site!), about a half an hour. I put my hamburger rolls under the broiler for just a minute or two and they were toasted to perfection. Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe!! I will be making this again and again!

Ham N Cheese Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Yummy! I came across this recipe in one of my cookbooks, and was happy to see it here at All Recipes with high ratings. Made this exactly as written tonight for dinner, and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very easy, very good. Thank you!

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Yummy! The only difference I made was using 8oz of sharp cheddar cheese in place of the American cheese. Delicious comfort-food recipe, and so creamy and warm! I will be making this again and again, for sure. Be careful during step two - stir constantly, as it says, because it can burn easily in this stage. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Wow! This is delicious - such a great variation on the usual side dish. I followed the recipe exactly. Will be making this again! I suggest serving it in a bowl or on a platter with a slight dip though, because you'll want to scoop out some more sauce!

Apple Orchard Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
Delicious punch! We made this for our Christmas party, and it was a great non-alcoholic beverage for those who didn't want to drink. I didn't add any ice - the chilled apple juice and orange juice + the frozen cranberry juice kept it nice and cool all day. There wasn't a sip left at the end of evening. Sweet (but not overly sweet!) and tasty!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
Delicious! I tested this recipe out as a potential dessert for my Christmas party. I took other reviewer's suggestions and doubled the spices (cinnamon, ginger and cloves). I made it in a Bundt pan and 45 minutes was perfect!! Don't be afraid of the strange consistency when you add the hot water. It was very watery, with clumps of dough in it, but it baked perfectly. I just sprinkled powdered sugar on it before serving. Delicious recipe, and I'm looking forward to making it again for my guests! *** UPDATE 12/25/2010: I made this again and added 1 cup of chocolate chips. DELICIOUS ADDITION!! I may add up to 1.5 cups next time. Again made in a Bundt as written above, with a dusting of powdered sugar. Guests loved it! ***

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Delicious, and so easy to make! This was the hit of our Thanksgiving dessert table. I followed the recipe exactly. Don't be discouraged about the appearance when it is done... because once you cut that first slice off, the inside swirl is beautiful! People have already asked for the recipe. Yum!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Oh goodness. These are so delicious - a great variation of the usual banana bread recipe. I made these twice: the first time according to the instructions, the second time I added the streusal topping halfway through cooking. I prefer the second!! The topping stayed nice and crumby instead of baking through. SOOO good, and I will be making this again and again!!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
Delicious! So simple to make. We molded it into a football and served it with both regular and chocolate graham crackers on game day. Everybody loved it! As other reviewers mentioned, just remember this is a dessert, not an appetizer, as it is sweet. Thanks for a great recipe - I'll make this again!

Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
I made this recipe with green and yellow candy melts for Super Bowl, and everyone loved them! This recipe is similar to one I had made many times before, which uses Bakers squares instead of candy melts. I prefer this one for melting ease (you can melt and re-melt as necessary) and flexibility (choose any color candy melts to match your party's theme). Freeze these before dipping so they stay firm. Also, a word of warning, if you are making this ahead of time: putting them in the refrigerator will make them wet-looking and sticky. I suggest making them shortly before serving them, or leave them at room temperature for a better display. I will be making these again and again.

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
This dessert looked absolutely adorable! I thought the recipe would just be okay, but was pleasantly surprised because it tasted so yummy too! It made a cute Easter dessert, and received great reviews from my guests. We used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla. Also, not having a food processer, we crushed our Oreos in a freezer bag with a rolling pin. Worked great! I will definitely take the advice of other reviewers, and make this again with the reverse-Oreos and a sand pail for our upcoming beach vacation. SO CUTE! I highly recommend this recipe!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
Yummy! My DH and I prepared these spur-of-the-moment last night. We halved the recipe, and baked it in a 9x9 pan for 35 minutes. We didn't have any chocolate chips on hand, but the brownies were still absolutely delicious! So chewy and rich! Also, instead of sifting, we whisked for a brief minute or two. I will definitely make these again. No more boxed brownies!! Super easy, sooooo yummy! Thank you!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
This frosting is delicious! I did have to add much more milk than the recipe called for to get the right consistancy though. One batch made enough to cover at least 35 cupcakes for me. I served this on top of the "Brownie Batter + Cupcake" recipe also from this site. Great combination!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
These were the most delicious muffins I've ever made! There were no leftovers! I baked these for Thanksgiving, exactly as it is written as far as the ingredients go. What yummy flavors! Because I didn't have any 7x3 loaf pans, I made them in muffin tins instead, yielding 28 muffins. They baked perfectly at 350 degrees for 25 minutes on the center rack. Then I left them in their pans for 3 minutes, and transfered them to wire racks to cool. I made them two days in advance, because I had many other things to bake for the holiday. But as the recipe says, they actually taste even better after the first day. I will be making these for every Thanksgiving from now on!!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I made this frosting for The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies recipe, also from this site. My husband isn't a fan of almond, so I used the same measurement of vanilla instead. Also, as per other reviewers' suggestions, I added a little extra milk to get a more fluid consistency. Tasted great, and what a shine these had when the icing had stiffened a bit! I am new to icing, so I tested three different applications: piping, brushing and spreading. I've found using a brush to be both easier and neater! Be sure not to take too long, or your icing will harden. I suggest if you are baking a large batch of cookies, to do your icing one serving at a time. Will be making this cookie/frosting combination again often!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I baked these cookies with the Sugar Cookie Icing from this website for Mother's Day. I followed the recipe exactly as is. After chilling the dough, I sprinkled flour onto parchment paper and cut out my shapes there. Don't over flour the area, or your cookies will come out tasting a little too doughy! A great combination, and very easy to make! These cookies disappeared so fast; everyone loved them! I will make these again!
