Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
I did the following....just microwaved my potatoes until fully cooked and then sliced them and placed cut side down into an 8X11 pan. I combinded the topping ingredients (flour, sugar, butter and nuts) and crumbled it on top of the potatoes and baked for 20 minutes....TO DIE FOR...and much lower in fat and calories than making the "casserole". You might want to note that the topping does NOT spread (the flour prevents it) so how ever you top it...that's how it will look when it comes out of the oven. Just wanted to let you know being I thought it would melt and spread a bit...but it does not! Very good recipe, will make again!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2006
We liked this recipe. I did cut back on the butter (used half the recommended) but followed everything else in recipe. I think next time I will saute the garlic in the butter a bit before adding the remaining ingredients for the sauce. Also, I will allow the sauce contents to boil for a couple of minutes to allow the sauce to thicken a bit so that it will stick to the broccoli a bit better. Overall, good recipe...I'll be making this again.

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
Very Good...and easy! I made the following changes: used 30 oz of hash browns, 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup cheese mixed into potatoes. I did not mixed the french fried onions into the mix. After cooking for 40 mins, I topped with 1/2 cup cheese and 1 cup fried onions...came out great! If you use the 30 oz. of potatoes I would suggest baking for an extra 10 minutes! Will make again!

Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2006
Fabulous! I did rub under the skin (we don't eat the skin) and added a quartered onion, 5 cloves of garlic and the lemon rind inside the body cavity while cooking. This chicken came out perfect and everyone LOVED it! Will definitely make again!

Herbed Beef Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
Good recipe! I did make the following changes: i made 6 slits into the roast and stufted one whole garlic clove into each slit. I used the seasoning mixture, adding some Italian seasoning (I think I doubled the amount) and rubbed the entire roast. I let this sit overnight to marinate. Before cooking I quartered 2 onions and mixed 1/4 cup beef broth and 1/4 cup red wine (omitting the water) and put everything (onions, broth mixture and meat) into a roasting pan. Baked until meat thermometer read rare and then let sit for 30 mins which resulted in perfectly roasted med rare roast. Flavor was very good, recipe easy to have ingredients on hand, will definately make again!

Cheese Ring

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I've made this recipe a few times now and think it's great! I did make the following adjustments: Add 1 block of cream cheese (I whip a room temperature block in the bowl prior to adding any other ingredients), in addition to cayenne and garlic salt, I also added onion powder, paprika and garlic powder (about 1/2 tsp of each. I mix the seasoning into the cream cheese before adding the remaining ingredients). I use a combination of sharp and mild cheddar cheeses (50/50 of each) and I make this dip the night before to allow the flavors to blend. I also recommend using a 8" springform pan (lined and sprayed with butter flavored Pam) instead of the jello ring. Once the dip is turned out on a plate, top with raspberry preserves, chopped pecans and fresh raspberries. It tastes great and looks fantastic! By using a springform pan, you can get the dip and preserves in each bit...which is really yummy. This is very simple to make and tastes great!

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
GREAT! Served this last weekend (it was very hot outside) and it was a huge hit! I did cut back on the sugar - 1.5 cups is plenty! I also found that one frozen mixture is plenty for 2 2-liters of soda, so you can use 4 total 2-liters of soda with the frozen mixture. Everyone loved this - will definitely make again. Thanks!

Super Duper Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
WONDERFUL! Made these for a party and they were the first to go (and there were lots of other cookies there!) I followed exact but added a bit more flour because some people mentioned they spread, mine did not at all! The key to this recipe is to make sure your dough is COLD when rolling (chill at least 3 hours) and do not OVERCOOK. I only baked mine for 12 mins (and my cookies were big - I only got 3 doz out of this recipe) then allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5-10 mins then remove to cooling rack until completely set. They may not look completely done when you take them out but if you overbake these they will be so dry and awful. And my kids had a ball rolling in the powdered sugar...so this is a keeper!

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
This recipe was okay. I cut the butter in half and it was still WAY too much! Also I decreased the brown sugar and it was still too sweet. If I make again I will use 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 2 cups marshmallows! Also, we like our potatoes a bit chunky, so I will cube them before boiling and then mix them with the sauce before putting into the oven, instead of mashing them. The overall flavor was GREAT but they were too oily and sweet to eat very much. But I'll give it another try with the above changes.

Mexican Cream Cheese Rollups

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2005
Very good! I made the following changes: doubled the cream cheese and added 1/2 cup sour cream to the mayo mixture (everyone seemed to say that it did not make 8 roll ups). And I added finely chopped scallions, diced green chilis, a dash of tabasco sauce and about 1/4 cup grated mexican cheese. Made the mixture the day before to allow flavors to blend and then refrigerated the roll-ups before cutting into pieces. Everyone LOVED them and asked for the recipe. Will definately make again!

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
Fabulous and EASY...how can you beat that? I followed the directions to a "T" and it turned out wonderful. It was my first time making candy of any sort and I could not believe how easy it was! I do recommend using a glass batter bowl (one with a handle) to help pour the candy out of the bowl once finished. I also lined my baking sheet with foil and lightly sprayed with butter flavored Pam, made clean up a breeze. This is so simple, I'll be making it as christmas treats for friends and neighbors!

Lemon Pepper Shrimp with Mustard

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
GREAT! Easy and quick with lots of flavor. I added a bit more garlic and wine, and used less than half the butter and still great! Served it over steamed brown rice. Would also be great with scallops, calamari, etc! Will definately make again.

Country Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
Yummy! Super easy and very good! I added more bananas (5, I think) because I had that many. Topped this with the Cream Cheese frosting and everyone raved and asked for the recipe. A keeper!

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
This is an easy and very good dessert. I've made it many times playing around with different options and I've found the following to work best for my family: I make it at least 1 day ahead (or 2 if there is time!), I use the chocolate icing reciped that many reviewers use (cocoa, butter, sugar, vanilla and milk) but I DOUBLE the frosting recipe to make a nice layer of fudgy topping. Make sure you do NOT allow the frosting to cool too long because it becomes very difficult to spread if it gets too cool - a bit warmer than room temp is the best so that it drizzles out of the pot into the dessert. You will need AT LEAST 3 packages of graham crackers, if making a 9X13 pan. And you can use vanilla or banana pudding...both taste yummy!

Sweet Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2006
Very good! I used fresh green beans, blanched them in boiling water for 5 mintues, and precooked my bacon for 2 minutes before grouping the beans bacon. I will probably pre-cook the bacon a bacon a bit more next time. Just to cut down on some calories, I used less butter and added a bit of water to the brown sugar mix. I also baked for 30 mins and then broiled them for 5 mintues to help crisp the bacon...but I would have liked it a bit crispier once cooked. Overall, these were really good and they looked really nice once cooked. I'll make them again.

Best Chicken Salad Ever I

Reviewed: May 8, 2005
Thought this was ok. The pickle relish did not really go with it, I thought. If I make again I will not add the relish.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: May 8, 2005
EXCELLENT! Followed the recipe but did not add the brandy, instead added 2 teaspoons of vanilla (instead of 1) and dipped each bread slice (crust removed) into the egg mixture before adding to pan - poured remaining mix over the casserole. Next time I will add chopped nuts of some sort to the bottom of the pan with the brown sugar mixture, then top with bread! I also baked with foil on pan for 30 minutes and then removed foil for 15 minutes - came out great! Not too hard, not too soft.

New England Clam Chowder I

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2005
OK for a basic recipe, but I made the following changes: added more potatoes and doubled the clams, added sliced celery, old bay seasoning, bay leaves and used potato buds (about 1 cup) to thicken the soup - gave it better consistency and texture.

Bacon Water Chestnut Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2003
EXCELLENT! I would not recommend using thick sliced bacon, use the thinner slices instead. I used whole chestnuts and 1/2 piece of bacon. I cooked my rolls on a wire rack inside a cookie sheet and used a convection oven to bake them - you will not need to turn them halfway through cooking, they came out very crispy and cooked in 30 minutes. I made the sauce using equal parts of the ingredients, it came out great and I served it on the side for dipping. Everyone loved them. I will definately be making these again!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
Good cake, easy to make. Topped this with the Satiny Chocolate Glaze and it made a wonderful dessert. I recommend a bundt or star bundt pan...it looks really nice!
