Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
YUMMY! I make other cakes that require adding some kind of filling inside the cake. To make it easier, I bought a plastic container, similar to a ketchup squeeze bottle. I cut the top down to make the opening larger. I filled my bottle with the milk and caramel mixture, took my time and easily filled the holes in the warm cake. I saved some of the milk-caramel mixture to spread on the top to make the candy stick to the cake. You can find toffee pieces in the stores making it easier than smashing up candy bars. I poked holes in the warm cake with a wooden spoon handle and followed a review saying to use the whole can of milk and whole jar of caramel and it was just too wet for me. The second time I watched the video, and used the correct amounts and it was delicious! I frosted with Cool Whipped Frosting. It's sturdier than plain Cool Whip and holds up well when sitting out for a bit, unlike whipped cream. I think I need to save this cake for very special celebrations because it's not exactly lo-cal. Thank you Angelady, I will keep this recipe forever!

Peanut Butter Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
Yum! This was so good! I did stir 3/4 of a cup of peanut butter chips in the warm batter, so they were slightly melted. This way they weren't hard little chips, just sort of soft and marbled. I warmed the peanut butter a bit and spread a very thin layer on top and quickly spooned on the chocolate frosting and it spread easily over the peanut butter. Thank you marbalet for a quick, easy, home-made and delicious cake.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
It's a keeper! When I first read the reviews, I thought "Oh no, everyone is all over the place on this one." Even the submitter wrote flour in the recipe and at the bottom of the recipe a footnote says she really uses cornstarch! Why not just say cornstarch? Oh, what to do? I decide to follow the recipe but not bake it at all. Good choice! It was excellent. *I'm editing already. I would suggest you serve real whip cream on the side, otherwise it only takes a few minutes for it to start running all over the place. Cool-whip won't do that but a lot of people prefer real whipped cream. Thank you so much Ruby.

Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I suggest you add the brown sugar a tablespoon at a time to make sure it's not too sweet or overpowering for your taste. Two tablespoons were plenty for our taste. I like a few vegetables in mine so I did add some diced carrots and celery, Thanks for the great recipe!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Yum! This was really good bean soup. I like a lot of vegetables in it so I added more carrots, celery and a diced potato. I also threw in a handful of frozen green beans & a handful of frozen corn. I also used a lot less water because I like it nice & think. I also give the pot of soup a healthy squeeze of ketsup to add to the flavor. Don't laugh, it's really good.

Four Layer Delight

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
One of my fam's all time favorites. Sometimes it's butterscotch or maybe chocolate pudding. No matter what kind of pudding mix you use, it's always great. The great thing is you can always modify the ingredients to make it healthier without compromising the taste. I'm cutting down on my goodies so I rarely make it but when I do, I go for the original recipe and use butter and not margarine. I think it makes for a much tastier crust. So much for cutting fat and calories!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
This was so good and like everyone else that rated this, I will no longer buy the envelopes of seasoning mix. It's no big deal to measure this all out and also not worry if I seasoned my food well enough. Plus you always have the seasonings listed here in your cupboard. I think I will make myself a cup full and store it in a container. Thanks Bill!

Chocolate Praline Layer Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
After reading their reviews I did spray the pans really well with butter flavored Pam Spray. I let the cake cool for 5 minutes and flipped it out on the cooling rack, smacking the bottom of the pan hard and it fell right out. Because I donated the cake to a bake sale for the Senior Center, I decided I wanted something sturdier than just a whipped cream filling so I used Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting from allrecipes. It had to sit out for an hour and held up wonderfully. I made chocolate curls to garnish it with and sprinkled a few more pecans on top and lightly drizzled caramel and chocolate on top. It was one of the prettiest cakes I have ever made and everyone loved it.

Cherry Pie Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
What a perfect recipe! Fast, easy and delicious! I'm making 10 dozen mini cheesecakes for a cookie exchange next week and after pricing canned cherry pie filling (over $4.25 a can) I decided to make my own cherry topping. I found frozen cherries on sale and made 1/4 of a batch to try it out and it was just the greatest! Thanks for saving me so much money!

General Tsao's Chicken II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Excellent! The sauce is wonderful and I did double it. Next time I think I will try to save a few calories and instead of deep frying, I will saute the chicken then add to the sauce. I wonder if I will wreck the recipe then. Thanks ChefDaddy!

Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Yum! This is so good! I like to add a few radishes, it makes it look so pretty. I don't feel quite so guilty if I have seconds either since it's made with cauliflower, haha.

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Great recipe! What makes it extra special is how easy it is to make this to suit your family's taste. I added about 6 cups of vegetables, including the onion. I used 1 cup each of carrots, potatoes, green beans , corn and celery, and precooking everything except the corn. It turned out wonderful. Of course I'm sure it's great if you follow the recipe exactly, but why not make it with what you like best. I made it Saturday after Thanksgiving ... I just happened to some turkey in the fridge. Thanks Rob!

Asparagus with Cranberries and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
My son made this as a side dish for Thanksgiving and it was loved by all. While he roasted the asparagus in the oven, he sauteed the pinenuts & cranberries for a few minutes. Then sprinkled the mixture on top of the asparagus, on a serving plate. Great recipe!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
How can something so simple taste so wonderful? I made it exactly as directed and everybody commented on how good it was. Previously I have tried a few elaborate and labor intensive recipes for cranberry sauce, but this is the recipe for me. It was simple and very, very good. The next I make it I may try it with just a little less orange juice ... perhaps 3/4 cup of oj and 1/4 cup of water just to see if I like it even better with just a little less orange in it.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
Knowing my apples, I knew that I wouldn't want 1/4 cup of sugar in my applesauce. My Fuji apples were sweet enough. I also went with 1/4 cup of water and next time I will try 3 tablespoons. I covered my pan, brought it to a boil and turned it on very low. I was so worried I would burn it with such a small amount of water that I removed the pan from the burner until my electic stove cooled down to low before putting my covered pan back on the burner. I watched it like a hawk at first and when I realized it wasn't going to burn, I just left it to do it's thing. I thought I was doing more harm taking the lid on and off, checking the apples. When the apples were soft enough, I mashed them and tried to not to eat the whole thing because they were that good!

Pecan Tassies

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2012
It wouldn't be Cristmas around here without one of our all time favorites. Online or at nice kitchen store you can find a (very inexpensive) handy wooden tool that pats pastry dough into mini-muffin pans, making the task 100% easier. I drop balls of dough in the pan, spray my tart tamper with Butter Flavored Pam and zip right throw the process. The recipe makes a lot, so there are plenty to share with family and friends. Also I use butter, not margarine.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
Everyone loves this one! I make it easier for myself when I want to serve it for a dinner party. I chop all my veggies the night before and refrigerate them. Pillsbury sells Crescent Baking Sheets making it much faster to put together. The next day I spread out the Cresent Sheets on my pan. Bake, spread on the cream cheese mixture, then cut in squares before I add the vegetables. I lightly press the veggies on top and it makes it so much neater when you take them out of the pan to serve them. Yum!

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2012
One of my favorite recipes, with extra seasoning that is. I bake it as directed or sometimes I cook it on top of the stove. I usually cut the breasts into large, thin, medallions, shake them in a plastic bag with seasoned flour. I cook quickly in 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil. Then add the mushrooms and saute for a few minutes. Then I add lemon and about 1 cup of chicken broth. The flour I shook the chicken in thickens it all to make a nice sauce and I usually serve it with rice. Yum!
