Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
I thought they were pretty good but everyone else thought they were great. It's a little bit of work but if you nkow someone who really likes peanut butter and chocolate, it will go over well.

Make-Ahead Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
I'm giving it 5 stars b/c everyone said it was wonderful. I thought it was good but I would give it 4.5 stars if I could. I didn't bake it exactly as directed. I used a bundt pan and doubled the topping. I layered 1/2 the batter, put in 1/2 the doubled topping and then the rest of the batter. It looked and tasted great but it didn't keep long. It was a bit drier than I would have liked.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
I made 3 pans of this for my stepdaughters 16th birthday. She had a sit down dinner and I had this and salad with homemade croutons from bread I baked and garlic bread. It was outstanding. She got compliments all week on how good it was and her mother and stepfather even complimented me on it.

Little Mickey's Favorite Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
This is a fantastic cheesecake. It is not overly peanut buttery as is. I almost think switching out the chocolate chips for chopped peanut butter cups like some had suggested would be a bit too much. No problems with cracking. I just made a regular graham crust because that's what I had ingredients for and it complimented it well.

Smashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Good base but needs doctoring up.. I added garlic powder and drained the chicken stock. Can't imagine not draining it.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
Absolutely delicious! I used butter flavored crisco and I also had no molasses so I subbed honey instead. I don't know what they taste like with molasses but I'm not a huge fan of molasses or honey for that matter.. but these were outstanding. The spices are dead on and the texture is awesome. I'm going to use these for this year's cookie exchange and deliver them to some people for gifts.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
Really good. You need to modify to suit your own tastes. I made mine really chunky and eyeballed everything. I also don't keep cans of chicken stock so I just used the chicken bouillon granules and replaced the vegetable broth with that. Everyone liked it. I went light on the salt and granules but I'll be more liberal next time b/c I ended up salting my soup and I never do that. That's not a knock on the recipe though. It's a very good base. I also used canned carrots b/c that's all I had but they were fine.

Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
Excellent. I only had peanut M&Ms and didn't have enough so I chopped them coarsely (that's a pain) and then added in a 1/4 cup or so of chocolate chips to make up the difference. Also used butter flavored crisco. They were great!

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
Great banana pudding--I actually used 2 boxes of sugar free pudding but kept the other stuff the same. The sugar free pudding boxes have very different ounces on their packages and even the 2 I had were very different. They added up to about 5 ounces though. I would have added milk if needed but after putting in the sour cream and the whipped topping it was perfect. Everyone loved it.

Sausage Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
Didn't really follow the recipe b/c I didn't have or like mushrooms and didn't have pizza blend cheese or a sausage roll. Cooked up and crumbled bacon and had some diced ham. Spread some salsa first, then scattered the meat, then put a bit of shredded cheddar and then did 8 eggs (seasoned the eggs though) and then topped with more cheddar. Also baked the crust for 5 mins per suggestions. Got great reviews.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
I made these and it's way more than one household with 3 kids needs to be consuming. I ended up cutting them up and giving a baggie full to 2 separate next door neighbors. The first guy took one out of the baggie and ate it and wanted to steal the other baggie. Guess that means they went over well. LOL

Easy Pineapple Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
really good.. I was skeptical about using the frosting but it was good.. I just used my own cream cheese frosting recipe though and made it a little less thick and sweet than I usually would. Cake needs a little cinnamon I think but definitely a keeper.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
I cheated by using self rising four and I had a partial stick of butter flavored crisco so I used that and added shortening to make up the difference. They were very good. They didn't brown much but its probably because i didnt follow directions.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
These were ok. Next time I'll try and add something to the crust b/c it was a little bland for my taste. I might go a little heavier on the jam than I did. I was a little short so I think I ended up only putting about 2/3 of a cup in it and I"ll spread it a little closer to the edge. I was worried about it leaking out and burning based on some of he reviews so I left about a 1/4 around the edges which didn't seem to be necessary. The only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is b/c of the crust being bland (not b/c I used less jam :) ) which would be my fault.
