Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
I read all of the reviews and tried to compile the best of the best since so many people complained of problems. I added 1/4 more flour and 1 egg, per others' recommendations. Then I chilled the dough for an hour. I used my Pampered Chef scoop and rolled them into balls, flattening slightly so they represented saucers slightly larger than a quarter. I used the chapstick for the preserves as recommended - worked perfectly! I tried my first batch lowering the oven temp, but that didn't seem to work, so I baked them at 350 as directed. Mine took about 19 minutes each to bake. Maybe mine were larger? My batch yielded 32 cookies. I haven't tried the icing yet - they are delicious as is. But I might try it and see which I like better. Every year for Christmas I try a new cookie. Some never make it to the dessert table and of those that do, most don't return the following year. But these are a keeper! They will be part of my cookie repetoire going forward! Thanks for a great recipe!

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This was so good and so easy to make! I needed more cool whip for the layers, though. I used almost 2x what the recipe called for. I let it set for about 6 hours before it was served and it was delicious. I will definitely make this again!

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I've tried many different methods of cooking a turkey over the years and they've all been pretty good, but I've never found one I would be committed to doing again and again... until now! I pretty much followed the directions, with only 1 modification that made for the perfect meal. My 15 pounder needed to cook for a little over 4 hours. I covered it with foil for the first 2 hours then removed the foil, added 2 cans of chicken broth to the pan and basted the turkey every 15 minutes for the remaining 2 hours. It came out looking like a magazine cover - better than any turkey I have ever seen before. And the taste was amazing. It was moist and flavorful. This will be the only way I make turkey from now on!

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
I adjusted the recipe for 24 servings so I could use my 13x9 pan as others suggested. Used parchmant paper which made taking the bars out and cutting them a breeze. I had made extra pie crust for Thanksgiving so I used my husband's grandmother's pie crust but followed the recipe otherwise. Cooking time required additional 15 minutes. Very good and got rave reviews and a few requests for the recipe!

Lisa's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
I made this for a neighborhood picnic - I used the full version - I don't believe in cutting calories on my chocolate desserts!!! I put the Satiny Chocolate Glaze (from this site) on top. It not only smelled amazing - it was gone before I could get a slice. This is probably the easiest dessert I have made in a long time and it got rave reviews!!!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
Absolutely perfect! I made it in the microwave as the other reviews suggested which made this so quick and esay. I made it for Lisa's Chocolate Chip Cake - brought it to a picnic and the cake was gone before I could get a slice. I did manage to get a bite from my daughter's plate though. It was amazing! This was probably one of the easiest desserts I've made in a long time - and everyone thought I had slaved in the kitchen for hours!!

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
This is a marvelous idea on a classic salad. We love tomato mozzarella salad but when served this way it becomes a finger food. Absolutely fantastic!

German Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
This recipe was exactly what I was looking for! My 8 year old loves cole slaw - not the mayo kind - so I was looking for a quick and easy recipe to throw together. This was perfect. I bought the bag of cole slaw (no dressing) which had green cabbage, red cabbage and carrots already in it. I made it exactly like the recipe said since I was using a large bag of slaw - yes there was too much dressing, but that was no big deal. The celery seeds are key. Fantastic recipe - will definitely make again.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Super easy and delicious. I made this for my daughter's 3rd grade class for their Thanksgiving celebration. It goes great with Pumpkin Dip from this website, too. Try spreading a little of that on a slice of bread - it is heaven! The kids loved it so much I went through 3 loaves. I had to come home and make another batch for us to have over the weekend. Absolutely fabulous - and very easy. And the aroma in the house while it was baking was so wonderful, I may make this every week just for the delightful scent!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
This is a great recipe! I will never buy pizza sauce again - and will probably make pizza at home versus ordering out more often now too! I didn't have time to make my own crust - I will do that next time, but this sauce was so easy to make and tasted delicious.

Hot Crab Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Very easy to make and so delicious! Very easy to reheat leftovers, too. This recipe makes a lot. I used the canned crab for convenience and got rave reviews. I'll be making this again!

Easy Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Very good recipe. I should have paid attention to the other reviews though and added a bit more chicken stock. Also, next time, I will uncover for the last 15 minutes of baking to crisp the top. I made 2 batches - one as directed and one without the sausage for the vegetarians. Both came out good. I will continue to tinker with this one to get it great!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
This was fabulous! My former pot roast recipe was almost the same - except for the cream of mushroom soup. What a difference that makes! I did modify a bit and put potatoes, carrots and 1/2 bag frozen pearl onions in the slow cooker first. Then, I followed the recipe exactly and cooked it on low for about 9 hours. I added a little cornstarch to thicken the gravy - it was fantastic. I love the way the house smells all day when it is cooking. Thanks for making my already delicious pot roast even better!

Stuffed Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
This was really good. I've never thought to make stuffed pork chops without actually "stuffing" them! I was in a rush on a weeknight, so I just made a box of stuffing and it was still great. Preparing it that way makes this a real easy weeknight meal. Next time I will make it with my own stuffing and I'm sure it will be even better. This one is a keeper!

Maria's Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
These are so simple yet so wonderful! What a nice change from ordinary plain old chicken dishes. This was so easy to prepare and even my kids gobbled it up! (I didn't tell them there was spinach until after they told me it was delicious!) I didn't change a thing - next time I would add some spices to the ricotta cheese mixture - basil, oregano, etc., but that would just be to add a little touch. This one is a keeper!

Mexican Cream Cheese Rollups

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
I absolutely love these! I've been making them for years with a few modifications - I don't use mayonnaise - I used sour cream instead. Also, I dice up roasted red peppers and add 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. These are always a huge crowd pleaser!

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
I thought this was okay - the texture wasn't exactly what I was looking for. It almost looked undercooked - I prefer a more solid feel. It definitely tasted better the second day. I might try it again using a springform pan - I used the pre-made crust as directed to save time. It was okay, just not as great as I expected based on all the reviews.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
Very good - this is a nice change of pace from the same old chicken every day. I followed others' advice and used 1/2 cup red wine plus I added a can of sliced mushrooms and a can of artichoke hearts. Very simple and the house smelled great. I will definitely make this again.

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
I would actually give this 4 1/2 stars. The chicken was very moist and had plenty of flavor. I used Rondele Garlic & Herb spread in the cheese section near the deli counter. The breadcrumb/parmesan mixture made way too much - next time I would have that. I used freshly grated parmesan cheese which didn't stick too well to the chicken, so I would adjust that next time. Other than that, it was delicious. My family ate it right up!

Enchilada Casserole III

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
Very easy and very good. My whole family enjoyed it. I used bottled enchilada sauce (3 bottles) and still didn't have enough. I added one bottle of taco sauce to round it out. I also used ground turkey as well as reduced fat cheese - although I doubled up on the monterey jack for make a 2:1 jack:cheddar ratio. I cooked it a bit longer - closer to 45 minutes as well. Very satisfying meal and an quick and easy change for the family. I will definitely make this again.
