Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
Very yummy healthy alternative. My "meat loving" hubby didn't even realize there was no meat in it (crazy, I know). A winner in my book.

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
Oh my gosh... These were SO good. I was worried about it being warmed with lettuce inside but it wasn't a problem at all. It stayed nice and crisp. Thanks Sydney. This is definitely a keeper. The hubby LOVED IT!!

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: May 18, 2014
Very rich. As in the video, I made it with the added chocolate. It was very good but I could only eat one piece. And I'm a BIG sweets fan. I will make it again but for more people than the five in my house.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
These were soooo yummy. After reading other reviews, I decided to make half with saltines and half with graham crackers. Both were good but the graham cracker version had a bit of an edge, so I'll make it that way from now on. A very pleasant surprise to an odd sounding recipe.

Pink Lemonade Pie from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
This is a refreshing summertime dessert. It tastes just like Lemon Icebox Pie just without the merengue. If you don't like lemon desserts, this is not for you.

Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
This was a quick tasty dinner. I wouldn't serve it to guests but it was yummy nonetheless. Accidentally used cream of mushroom instead of golden mushroom but we still liked it. Next time I think I'll try bacon on top with the cheese.

Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
This was easy to do. I did watch several videos prior to making this & I'm sure that helped. I do agree with Hyemama, it's not very cost effective unless you can get inexpensive cream. In the meantime, I'll just be making this as a treat.

Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
OMG!!!! This was soooooo good. I made it as a dessert for Christmas dinner. Amongst many desserts, this was the first to go. Everyone raved about it and kept telling others to go try it before it was gone. My nephew even asked me the next day, "do you happen to have anymore of that delicious dessert left at your house?". Unfortunately I took home an empty bowl. I am so going to make this again and again. Fantastic job ADRSEW!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
These were yummy. As others stated, very time consuming. Not sure if they are worth the time but they are cute. I used garden vegetable cream cheese for flavor & piped a thin line of plain cream cheese to make it white.

Toll House Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
This tasted DELICIOUS!! I did not have a problem with butter pooling. I did however, have the "too gooey" problem. It looked wonderful coming out of the oven but once cut, a pool of batter spilled out into the pie plate. Not sure if reducing the butter is the solution seeing how it tasted just right. I'll try it. If not, maybe I'll try softened instead of melted butter. I'll definitely be experimenting because this is a keeper.

Sweet Potato Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
This pie was just ok. It was better out of the fridge on the second day but I think I'll just stick to regular sweet potato pie.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
First off, I'm generally not a fan of pumpkin anything but these cupcakes were quite the surprise to me. Unlike other reviewers, I had no problem with the moistness of the cupcakes having used butter. They were quite moist & light. I will say that I didn't use the suggested amount of sugar in the frosting because it was sweet enough before I used it all. I will use it all next time though because the consistency of the frosting was a little too runny. I will definitely make these again.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
I found this recipe in a childrens cookbook that I had when I was a kid. I absolutely love it and have been making it ever since. One difference is that in the cookbook it gives you the option to make mini meatloaves, which I usually do because it cuts the cook time down by 75% (only 15 min.). You can do this by using a muffin tin or by forming small balls, about the size of a baseball, and cooking it on a foil lined baking sheet. I also recommend not filling the loaf pan to the edges. This way you can get the sauce on the sides, and in my opinion the sauce is what makes this dish.

Ribboned Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
I loved the way the cake looked when it was done and cut. I didn't care for the taste. Very similar to something store bought. I like dessert to taste amazing and this wasn't it. Won't be making this again.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
I agree with Shannon A. Very grainy. Not satiny at all. I won't be making this again.

Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
My experience in using yeast is very different than what this recipe calls for but tried it as is anyway and it turned out just fine. So glad to have a recipe for cinnamon rolls now because I don't like the ones available at the store. I also followed the suggestion of other reviewers and used 8oz of cream cheese. It was just enough. In one batch I added 1/2 cup of raisins. Sooooo good.

Mom's Breakfast Strata

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
This is a great base recipe that can be adjusted to ones taste. I followed the cooks note and used bacon instead of ham. It was very yummy.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
I thought these were really good. Pickles are a must. Although I must say I absolutely detest mayonnaise so I used Miracle Whip.

White Chocolate Blondie Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
My whole family thought these were absolutely delicious. Would not change a thing. I love how buttery they are. However, I would not call this a "brownie". It's more cake like, fantastic nonetheless.
