Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Yum! So simple and so good. I can't believe the substitution of strawberry cream cheese. I like the original recipe best of all. It goes so well with all different kinds of fruit. I can't imagine strawberry cream cheese with fresh pineapple, melons, etc.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Excellent recipe! I also cook mine at 400. I used to hate cooking bacon, always burning myself, splashing grease all over, etc. This is the only way to cook it. Thanks Joyce!

Creamy Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
Great recipe! Perfect for watching your weight. I added a few sliced radishes and skipped the sugar, used a low fat mayo and added just a little Splenda and I couldn't stay out of it!

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Too Cool! I made these for my "Little Flower Child" daughter. She loves everything about the 60's, the music, all the upheaval, the clothes, the passion, etc. When I came across this recipe I knew I had to surprise her for her birthday. I made cupcakes and she loved them and thinks "Mom" is the greatest.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
This was excellent. It simply proves the point that you don't always need many ingredients to make something that is very, very good. I also lightened up on the soy sauce and doubled the vinegar for personal taste.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Excellent! This is my favorite new recipe. I also added Panko bread crumbs and I will try it again using lowfat mayo and lite butter since I plan on cooking it often. Yum!

Mandarin Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
This was excellent. I did make a few changes to suit us. I stir fried pea pods, the whole bunch of green onions and a small box of mushrooms, then set aside. After shaking the chicken in a bag with flour I stir fried it and set it aside. After the sauce was made I then added everything back to the pan along with a can of drained, sliced water chestnuts and the cashews. Next time I will double the sauce. The great thing about stir frying is, it is so simple to adapt the recipe to your families taste with your favorite vegetables, etc. This is one of my new favorites. It is quick, delicious and great for company. Thank you so much!

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
This is fantastic! Even family members that aren't fans of coconut love this cake. I made a round layer cake and used the handle of a small wooden spoon to make my holes, and didn't press all the way down to the bottom of the cake. I put my coconut mixture in a plastic container similar to to a ketsup squeeze bottle that I cut the top down to make a bigger opening. I used that to slowly fill the holes and it made it so much easier. There is a lot of the cream of coconut mixture but I used it all. It's ok if it doesn't all make it inside the holes and some of it sits on top of the cake. I left my cakes right in the pans after filling with the cream of coconut and after cooling, covered them with plastic wrap and put in the fridge. To be sure it sets up nice and firm you must chill it overnight. The next morning I made Cool-Whip Frosting from this site. Instead of vanilla pudding I used cheesecake pudding. The vanilla is sort of yellowish and the cheesecake pudding is whiter, so it made for a prettier cake. I also add a bit of coconut extract to the frosting. The frosting does hold up much better than plain cool-whip. You can then cover the top and sides with a little or a lot of coconut. The cake sat in the fridge for several more hours before serving. It was so beautiful and impressive looking and my company loved it. Because it is so rich I will save it for very special occasions. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I use this on the Coconut Cream I cake from allrecipes and it is so good. Instead of vanilla pudding mix I use either cheesecake or white chocolate flavored pudding. The vanilla pudding is sort of yellowish and the other two are whiter in color, making for a prettier cake. I just add 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract. I have used this many times as it is so quick and easy. It holds up well and it's even great with fat free, sugar free, pudding and cool-whip. Thank you!

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts II

Excellent! This is one of my very favorite appetizers of all time. It's so worth all of that wrapping. Always a big hit, everyone always loves them.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Yummy! I made these for the first time last night for my "Christmas Goodie Baskets" for family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc and they were so good I could hardly stay out of them. The recipe made a lot which is great if you are planning on baking, freezing and giving them away during the holidays. More importantly, they were excellent and will be a regular on my Christmas Goodie Trays. I used Ande's Mints and had quite a little production going popping them in and out of the oven, letting the mint's sit a few minutes to melt, then spreading them all around. It's a good thing they were so good because I made a double batch, he he. Thank you Susan

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Excellent cookie! This has a very mild ginger taste that is simply wonderful. I am not a big fan of the super spicy, molasses gingerbread and neither is my family. This is perfect to go along with all our other Christmas baking that we pass around to family, friends, and neighbors during the holidays. They are very easy to make. I roll mine out on parchment paper to avoid any extra flour and also bake them on the paper. Everyone loves them and the children have a great time decorating them.

Cream Wafers

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
Excellent cookie! One of my all time favorites. I always make these at Christmas to give away to family and friends along with the rest of the cookies, candy, etc. and everyone loves this one. I never use the egg yolk and don't seem to miss it at all. There's something about raw eggs that sort of creeps me out, he he. I think the name of them should be "Disappearing Cookies"

Chocolate Coated Peanut Butter Crackers

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
It's amazing how something so simple can taste so good. My grandkids loved them and cracked up when I told them what they were made of. I used both milk chocolate and white chocolate and drizzled white on the milk chocolate on milk chocolate on the white and skipped the candy sprinkles and they looked great. I will put a couple of each on my "Cookie Presents" this year.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I had to edit my review and let everyone know how I won a "Gold Medal" at my Parks & Recreation's Department's Annual Baking Contest with Stephanie's recipe. The only changes I made were using 1 and 1/2 cups of batter for the first layer (it evened out the layers equally, making for a prettier pie) and I also made my own home made crust. I had a tiny pitcher of caramel sauce and some whipped cream for the Judges to try along with it. This is a wonderful and easy recipe. It has such a nice mild pumpkin flavor. We had it for the first time last Thanksgiving and it will now be a part of our desserts every year. Thanks Stephanie for a wonderful recipe!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Unbelievably good! I too baked my squash in the oven first. I used butter instead of margarine, 2 cans of chicken broth and cut the cream cheese in half. I didn't bother getting out the blender and all of the parts, I simply used my immersion blender right in the pot. Next time I will cut down on the cream cheese a bit more or try reduced fat cream cheese. This is now one of my favorite soups recipes and will be great during my Michigan winters.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Excellent! I doubled the recipe and only heated up a very few berries, mashing them with my potato masher to release the juices. I dissolved two teaspoons of cornstarch in a little bit of cold water and when the berries were hot I added the cornstarch mixture to the thicken the berries. I waited until they cooled off a bit and stirred in the rest of the berries. I used a potato masher and mashed them slightly. I wanted the sauce rather thick for the cheesecake I was serving. I also added a bit of red food coloring and it looked fantastic! Such an easy but elegant recipe. Thank you HEISLORD5

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
Excellent! I also subbed one teaspoon of vanilla for one of the teaspoons of water. Although I should have tried it with "Splenda" I made it as is and decided if I only make it once a year, on Christmas, then I'd be okay with the sugar.

Diane's German Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I thought that this cake and the frosting were excellent. Working full time, I'm not above taking an occassional shortcut, like using a jazzed up box mix. After comparing recipes for the frosting, I find that most are similar except that many only use 8 ounces of evaporated milk instead of the full can, which is 12 ounces, like this recipe calls for. I followed the recipe exactly until I got to the frosting. I then mixed only 8 ounces of evaporated milk in the pan with the other ingredients. With the rest of the evaporated milk, I added a couple of teaspoons of cornstarch and then mixed it in the bubbling frosting, insuring that it would be nice and thick. I then removed from heat, added vanilla, pecans and coconut.
