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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2006
We loved this marinade!!! I followed the recipe as written and served the meat with some sauted bell peppers, onions and garlic...came out great! I did pour a bit of marinade on the veges as I was cooking them to give them some flavor. This was really good and I only had about 5 hours to marinade the meat and had to grill indoors due to the weather...still came out great! I'll make again...and again!

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
VERY GOOD! After reading other reviews, I made the following changes: doubled the spice measurements, stuffed the chicken cavity with onion, garlic cloves and fresh rosemary. I rubbed the spice mixture under the skin and over it. It did take an extra 10 mins to bake at the recommended tempurature. But excellent - everyone loved it. It's a keeper!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I decided to make this on a whim...and didn't have all the called for ingredients but it still turned out GREAT! I used the eggs, milk, spinach, onions, garlic and butter. Added 7 sliced of precooked turkey bacon (diced) and diced red bellpepper (sauteed with the onions and garlic). Then I just mixed everything together into one bowl tossed in a couple of handfuls of grated cheese, mixed well and poured into my pre-baked pie shell (I pre-baked it for 5 mins). I cooked uncovered for 15 mins then tented some foil lightly over the top of the pie until the last 5 mins - removed to allow the top to brown jut a bit more and it came out perfect! My friend asked if I bought it! This is a great recipe for whatever you have on hand. A keeper for sure!

Eggplant -- Easy, Good and Tasty

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Just made this for dinner...and LOVED it! Very simple and tasty! I added balsamic vinegar to the eggs instead of water, used diced cherry tomatoes mixed with balsamic vinegarette salad dressing and grated romano cheese as the topping. I cut my eggplant rounds about 1/2 inch thick and baked for 20 mins. Came out perfect. These were a hit and would also make a great appetizer! YUM!

BAKER'S Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
Just made these with my kids...ate one warm out of the oven...delish! I used regular chocolate chips because that's what I had on hand...didn't change anything else...but did under bake them a bit (a min or two) because I don't like crunchy cookies...I prefer them to be soft and chewy.

Popularity Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
SO SO YUMMY! These are super easy to make. I think it took me 20 mins start to finish and that included washing the pot! didn't change anything but only had dark chocolate chips on hand so used those...turned out great! I also only chilled mine for 2 hours in the fridge and they were hard enough to break apart and begin the eating frenzy!!! My hubby says they taste like Almond Roca and I think they taste like a Heath Bar. Easy to have all ingredients on hand which is nice. Will make again...and again.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
DIVINE! Super easy, super tasty, very impressive! I will say that ONE batch in plenty of glaze for a bundt pan size cake, I doubled this the first time based on reviews and ended up with WAY too much frosting for my cake. The second time I did a single batch and it was plenty. You could use this on pretty much anything...cake, cupcakes, cookies, etc. Good recipe!
