Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2014
I've made this recipe many times for my family. Love it as is! I've even made it with grilled chicken before, too. This one is a definitely a keeper!

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2006
My husband has made this cake for me the past two years in a row for my birthday by request. It is absolutely delicious! I requested one small change this past year... I had him add a package of thawed, drained raspberries to the mix and reduce the almond to 1/2 tsp since it can be overpowering for some people's taste. Also, the Satiny Chocolate Glaze listed in a previous review is excellent.

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2006
Perfect cake for Spring or Summer. I live in GA, so I used fresh, ripe, sweet GA peaches. Took this cake to a mother's meeting and it was gobbled up. HELPFUL HINT: To ripen the peaches more quickly, put them in a brown paper bag. Close the top of the bag and poke holes in it. Also, you can put an apple in there to speed the process, as well.

Hershey's ® Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

Reviewed: May 30, 2005
I must say, I was very hesitant about making this dessert, but was quite pleased with the overall results. I had the in-laws stopping by this afternoon, and wanted to make something sweet for a nice, rainy afternoon. Saw this recipe and found it to be quick and easy. Followed the directions exactly and it turned out fine. Topped it with some vanilla ice cream and it was a big hit!

Congo Bars I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2005
These bars are nice and easy and quite yummy, too! I have a 10 1/2 in. by 15 1/2 in. jelly roll pan that I used because that's all I had. I reduced the heat to 325 and cooked it the recommended amount of time and they turned out fine.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2004
These were, by far, some of the best cookies I have ever made!! They took a good bit of time and effort, but were absolutely delicious! These would make great Christmas presents for friends/family. Am going to be sure and share these so that others know how good they are. Thanks, Stephanie!

Swiss Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2004
This recipe was pretty good. Nice and easy. I used the cream of chicken soup and added canned mushrooms and chopped green onion on top of the chicken to give it a little extra flavor.

Ruby Red Layered Salad

Very good recipe. Quick, easy, light and yummy. Only alteration I made was adding chopped pecans on top for texture and overall presentation.

Fudge Quickies

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2004
These are okay if you're needing a quick sugar fix, but I wouldn't serve them to guests or take them to a social function. They are extremely sweet and not very attractive. They might look better if the whole thing was cooled on a single cookie sheet (or 2 since it makes so much of it) and cut into squares like you normally would see fudge presented.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2004
Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. Very moist and good over rice. Was not quick and easy, though, but worth the time and effort. Only alterations I made were to add parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs and canned mushrooms to the soup. Didn't have Italian bread crumbs, so I added Italian seasonings to the plain ones I had on hand. Will make this again.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2003
Made these for a baby shower and everyone loved them. They are easy to make and very colorful. I used red and yellow bell pepper and green onion. Didn't use the broccoli. Didn't use full package of dressing mix per previous reviewers suggestions. Best served cold so crust doesn't get soggy. Might even consider using pita bread in future since it keeps its consistency well.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2003
Took these treasures to the in-laws' family reunion this past weekend, and they were a HUGE hit!! Tripled the recipe since it was such a large crowd to feed, and they were devoured! Read all of the previous reviews and incorporated several of them into the recipe. 1. Definitely use much less mayo... just enough to moisten. 2. Green onion works quite nicely in texture, taste, and overall presentation. 3. Cut bacon, then cook. 4. Added a little garlic powder and Hot Shots. 5. Bought 16 oz can biscuits b/c that's what the recipe called for... used the flaky grands buttermilk biscuits, cut them in 1/4's, shaped them into balls, then rolled with a rolling pin to flatten... makes nice little cups this way. 5. Was having to travel a long way with these in the car, so I cooked them the night before, kept them in a cooler on ice, then reheated them in the microwave when we got to the party. They turned out fine after their long journey. Will consider using cream cheese/milk mixture next time that previous reviewer suggested. May also try different variations such as canned chicken, pizza, quiche, philly cheese steak, ham, you name it! Great thing about this delightful recipe is the possibilities are endless!!

Jimmy's Mexican Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2003
Pretty good dish. Easy to make with basic ingredients of tex mex dishes. Turns out much nicer in presentation than a burrito that could be made with the same stuff.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2003
Well, if you need a quick chocolate fix, I might recommend this recipe. However, they didn't cook evenly and were very greasy. The ones in the middle even more so. Tried cooking them an extra 10 minutes to see if they would dry out or firm up a little, but didn't. The outer edges of the cookie were okay.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2003
Don't quite know what went wrong. Followed directions, but these came out VERY CHEWY, and not like peanut brittle at all. Hate wasting food, so while prying the gooey mess off of the prepared baking sheet, was thinking of what I could do with it. Took both sides of the concoction and rolled them in toward the center. Cut it in half, and forcefully pulled the mixture off pan. Cut them in bite size pieces, then tried one. Didn't taste horrid. It was more like chewy nougat. It turned out the hubby liked them. Bought some semi-sweet chocolate chunks, melted them, and dipped the nougat to make miniature candy bars. Very interesting way to make your own Baby Ruth bars. Could it have been the weather??? It was a very humid day.

Seven Layer Dip II

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
Great dip! Fun and easy, but not cheap. Have always relied on this recipe as a crowd pleaser. For a low-fat version that has just as much flavor, use fat free refried beans, reduced fat sour cream and reduced fat (or 2%) sharp cheddar cheese... don't much care for the flavor of the Mexican cheese blend... it might depend on the brand of cheese. Hints for making guacamole: Make sure avacados are dark green and slightly mushy. Instead of peeling the avacados, it's easier to just cut them in half, pop out the pit, and scoop the flesh out with a spoon. Go ahead and squeeze the juice of one whole lime onto the avacado... no need to measure it. In addition to adding taco seasoning to the sour cream, I also mix some with the refried beans. I prefer to spread the guacamole first, then the sour cream, since the guac is heavier. Lastly, throw on some jalapenos with the other toppings for an extra little kick.
