Taco Dip I

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
Awesome. Brought this to a BBQ and it disappeared! Will definitely make again & again!! Followed recipe almost exactly....the only changes I made were: I added a few shakes of cayenne pepper into the sour cream/cream cheese mixture for added heat, and instead of the green pepper, I used sliced scallions on top.

Blueberry Crisp II

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
We grow blueberries and have an abundance of them in June...I have to say, this is a terrific recipe...we've already made it 3 times in one month!! It's great with whipped cream on top, or served over vanilla icecream (or both!) Tips: Don't worry about how many blueberries you use...just fill your casserole dish (leaving room for topping)...if you have 4 or 5 or 6 cups, it doesn't make a difference, and MOST DEFINITELY double the recipe for the topping....you won't be sorry! I run some of it through the berries and then put the rest on top. I also sprinkled the top with a few tablespoons of sugar before baking...gives it a nice crispy top. LOVE this recipe for the taste, and the simplicity. A KEEPER!! Thank you!

Marinated Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Pretty as a picture, and delicious too! The marinade adds just the right touch of zing without overpowering the tomatoes. This was a perfect way to use up the abundance of cherry tomatoes I have growing in my garden right now. I followed the recipe to a tee, but used extra-virgin olive oil & added a few turns of fresh cracked black pepper. Yum. Thanks for the great recipe!

Easy Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
I would give this 100 stars but it only goes up to 5! Perfect, perfect, perfect!!! I made two at one time. One we ate, the other we froze. Three weeks later, the frozen one was just as delicious as the fresh one was (no thawing needed, goes right from freezer to oven, wrapped in foil. I don't think this is necessary, but it sure made it good: I used a garlic-flavored extra virgin olive oil on the dough, and I placed the cheese first (as other reviewers mentioned) and then the pepperoni on top of that. After rolling, I brushed with egg and then topped with a little bit of shredded cheese just for looks. My kids (even the picky one) LOVED this. This is the keeper of all keepers. Tasted like I bought it at an Italian bakery or restaurant, even better, and was so easy! Can't wait to try other fillings...ham & cheese, broccoli or spinach & cheese, philly cheesesteak (fried onions, steak & cheese). Thanks for submitting this!!!!!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
I made this on Monday and by Wednesday it was gone, even after attempting to hide it in the garage (it's cold out there)! TOP NOTCH recipe, and I have failed other methods and was really hoping that this one would work...and it did! It's FOOLPROOF. The last one I tried & failed had you using a candy thermometer. I wound up with a dry, grainy mess. Aunt Teen's came out so creamy and perfect. It was addicting, and everyone in my house could not keep their hands off of it. I will definitely be making this again VERY SOON (as soon as I buy more ingredients!) Thanks for submitting this!!!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
I loved all the herbs, and the curry gave it a great kick. I almost forgot to add the relish, as it's listed as an ingredient, yet omitted from the actual text of the recipe. I finally threw it in last, but I had tasted it before adding and loved it, and then after adding it, found that it added way too much sweetness. Even my 11 year old son commented that it was too sweet (and he is a sugar junky!). I cut down the mayo as advised by other reviewers. Eyeballed it to probably what was 3 or 4 tablespoons, max. Just until it looked creamy enough. I will definitely make this again, and next time will either use regular relish (not sweet) or omit this altogether (or use less). I also think that the addition of some celery would add a nice crunch. Thank you for submitting...even after all was said & done, it was gone in a matter of minutes!

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
This is awesome. Some tips to really make it foolproof...I use my "stir crazy" popcorn machine. This really cuts down on the burn factor and it comes out perfect every time. If you love making popcorn, the stir-crazy is the best. We used butter-flavored popping oil instead of veg. oil and were sure to use the 3-kernal pop method prior to adding the rest of the kernels and sugar into the oil (this helps prevent having the sugar in there for too long and burning). We also added a few shakes of salt in with the sugar, just for that sweet/salty mix. A KEEPER!!! I make a double batch each time!!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2004
All I can say is.........WOW!!! Look no further...this recipe is IT!! Perfect amt. of spices, delicious flavor, and ohhhh so very moist! I made two loaves plus a batch of mini muffins with the excess. Everyone loved it, even the kids! I sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on top of the batter before baking which gave it a nice sweet crust. I will make this again and again and again!!! Thanks for the great (and simple) recipe!

Scottish Shortbread III

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2003
This was so easy to make (yet looks & tastes like you worked all day!) and they turned out perfectly....the cuts were very clean and nothing crumbled! I sprinkled a small amount of granulated sugar and then a small amount of red sugar (for christmas) while they were still warm...but next time, I will sprinkle the sugar on prior to baking...just a scant amount. The colored sugar really makes them look festive for the holidays! Oh...I also added about a tsp. of vanilla and a dash of salt to the dough. I will definitely make these again!!! My family is loving them, and I have also wrappped some to give away as gifts! Thumbs up!!!
