Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2003
My sister requested I make a seven layer salad for Easter this year. I looked up some on-line and decided to try this recipe. It was wonderful. I made it last weekend to test and brought it to an Easter dinner this weekend. I did change a few things. Instead of just iceburg lettuce I mixed in a package of spring greens to make it more colorful. I also used half mayonnaise and half miracle whip and added two tbsp milk to thin the dressing. I made the salad the night before and tossed it to just prior to serving. It still looked pretty and everyone got a good mixture of the salad.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
I have made this recipes a number of times and get great reviews from all who try it. I usually do 1/2 ranch dressing and 1/2 blue cheese dressing and omit the cheddar cheese but add blue cheese crumbles. To make it super simple I purchase 2 - 3 fried chicken breasts at the deli section of the supermarket, remove the crispy skin and bones, then chop up the meat into small pieces. I think that the fresh meat tastes better than canned which I tried once. I find that I like it best with celery and go through two whole stocks each time I serve it. I usually serve it in a mini crock pot to keep it warm, but be sure and watch that it doesn't over cook and you'll need to stir it once in a while. Thanks for this tasty recipe.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
This recipe was fun and easy to make. I used vegetable flavored cream cheese to give it a little something extra. I shared this idea with many people over the holidays so they could add something special to their veggie trays.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
I have made this recipe a number of times. One switch I have done is to replace the nuts with toffee bits on half for my family members who don't care for nuts. Either way its delicious. Be sure and put a layer of wax paper on the bottom of the pan to ease with cleanup.

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
I made this for a St. Patrick's day party and received positive feedback. I was even asked for the recipe. I did add more bacon (about doubled) and served this in a crock pot so I put about 5 tbsp butter slices evenly on top. Will definately make again and not just for St. Patrick's day.

Bierock Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
I just made this this weekend and really enjoyed it. I didn't read any of the reviews and the only modification I made was to use frozen chopped onions which really speeded up the preparation process. I had leftovers the next day and still thought it was good though I did dip it in ketchup. I love ketchup. I liked this recipe as is but I also could see modifying it in the future to give it a little more pep as other reviewers suggested. Thanks for the recipe.

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
I liked this recipe because of the simple ingredients. I did make a few changes for personal preference. One was to use premade refrigerated garlic and herb mashed potatoes. This really speeds up the preparation part of the dish. I also added a bag of frozen pearl onions prepared as per the bags instructions. My family loves onions. The other change was to add cheese during the last five minutes of baking. This is a very good dish that I will make again. I plan on trying it with frozen mixed vegetables in the future.

Yummy Roll Ups

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
I love these as an appetizer because you can make them the day before. I have made this exact recipe many times and enjoyed it. The last time I made this recipe I used flavored cream cheese, finely chopped the dill pickles, and added a little chopped green onions for color. I thought I was able to spread the filling more evenly and didn't have pickle ends like I do when I don't chop the pickles.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
I enjoyed this recipe. I brought it to a July 4th celebration so I made a few of the cinnamon chips star shaped by using a cookie cutter. I used spray butter from a pump and thought the chips turned out good.

Party Punch III

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
I liked this recipe. I served it at a baby shower for a little girl so it was a great color. It was simple to make and worked well in my punch fountain. I also froze some of the fruit punch with orange slices to float in the fountain which kept it cool and was pretty. I thought the flavors went well together and it was a good compliment to the food since it wasn't too sweet.

Pistachio Cream Cheese Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I made these cookies a couple of days ago and I am happy with the results. I read many of the reviews and tried the recipe with adding 1/2 cup finely chopped pistachios. Since I was making them for Halloween I added a splash of green food dye to make them a brighter color. I put about 1 cup of the dough at a time in a disposable pastry bag, snipped the end off and piped the dough unto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Even with the extra nuts added the dough piped well and I didn't have to get my hands dirty. After making the chocolate drizzle I poured it into a quart size plastic bag, snipped the end off and it drizzled beautifully onto the cookies. I think it would be fun to make the cookies into finger shapes and try adding an "Almond fingernail" for Halloween next year. Thanks for the recipe!

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I had a little difficulty with this recipe. The shortbread dough was stickier than I anticipated and it crumbles off of the other layers. I did prick the shortbread with a fork after it came out of the oven and I cooled each layer before adding the next in the freezer. I don't know if I cooked the caramel layer too long (I followed the directions exactly) but it is really hard, more like hard candy and I had a difficult time cutting the bars. I ended up following another cooks advice and freezing the pan overnight then breaking the bars into pieces by hitting it with my rolling pin. That didn't help the shortbread to stay attached either. Taste is really good but presentation isn't so great so I am just sharing this with the family and not putting it on any cookie trays.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I enjoyed this cookie. When it came time to coat the cookie I put some powdered sugar in a quart size bag, dropped the cookie in and shook it. I did the batch and let them sit about 15 minutes than did a second coating. There was a nice even coating around the cookie.
