Chocolate Covered Cherries

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2003
Absolutely amazing. I halved the recipe for the dough and had just enough to cover all of the cherries! DEFINITELY keep spraying your hands with Pam or something while you're wrapping the cherries. After about seven cherries, I had to stop, run warm water over my hands and spray them before doing more. That may seem time consuming, but in the long run, it's quicker, because the dough goes on with very little trouble. I put the wrapped cherries in the freezer for two days. I used a ton of chocolate to coat them. I mixed chocolates, too. I started with chocolate bark, eventually combined it with semi-sweet choco chips, and ended with semi-sweet and milk choco mixed together--turned out wonderfully! My brother was rendered speechless for about thirty seconds after eating the first one. And if you know my brother, you know that's a miracle;)

October Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2003
I really should give this five stars, because I was the only one who didn't care for it. And that's really just because I don't like apples. I served this to four other people and they LOVED it!! Word to the wise: Definitely stick with the caramel squares and if you can't find any, wait until you do. I tried to substitute them with caramel sauce--the kind in the jar--and althought it still tasted delicious, it was a HUGE mess to cook. I had to throw out a cookie sheet and clean out my oven (which was in awful need of a cleaning anyway, I just needed that extra push to do it! lol) because the sauce basically turned to water and spilled out of the pie. I bought two frozen extra deep pie crusts. I took one and flattened it, cut out long strips and criss-crossed them over the top. The pie looked GORGEOUS. It was like something out of a cookbook. People raved about how pretty it was almost as much as they raved about the taste. Excellent desert if you're looking to casually impress.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2003
This deserves ten stars! Absolutely amazing dish. I made this when I was visiting my parents and it was a HUGE hit. None of us were expecting to be so crazy about it, but wow. I'm trying to cut red meat out of my parents' diets, so I substituted the beef with turkey--without telling them (my dad wouldn't have tried it otherwise). I added some spices--cumin, season all, a couple of different kinds of pepper. I also did as others suggested and used one can black beans, one can spicy refried beans. I would up forgetting to add the taco seasoning, but it definitely wasn't missed. Instead of taco sauce, I used chunky salsa. I served it with a handful of shredded lettuce, a couple of spoonfuls of fat free sour cream, and extra salsa on the top. This made a nice sized casserole--I had to cut the tortillas to fit, though, because I bought the extra large ones and only had a...whatever the normal size cass. dish is. It's a very filling meal, and mom ended up freezing half of it, which she told me they plan on eating this coming week. There was *still* enough for us to have left overs the next day--it tasted just as good after a night in the fridge, by the way. Fat free tortillas aren't your best bet for this, just fyi. I was hesitant about them, so I only used one in the middle, the rest were regular tortillas. Upon later inspection, the fat free tortilla kind of dissolved. So use fat free sour cream and use your fat grams for the cheese and tortillas. It's worth it!

Puppy Chow

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2003
It just isn't Christmas around here without this stuff. Last year things were a little hectic and I forgot to make the Puppy Chow and sure enough, by the end of the night, TWELVE people asked about it. It's SO easy--a little messy, though. The large bag works well, but so does a large bowl with a lid. Just pour everything into the bowl, pop on the lid, and shake your little heart out! Oh and peanut fans will LOVE this recipe with crunchy peanut butter! It really makes a difference!

Lemonade Pie III

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2003
The women in my family have been whipping this up for years and it is STILL a favorite at get togethers. It's also SO easy and quick that we tend to make it just to cure a sweet tooth! To make it virtually fat free is simple. Use fat free Eagle Brand milk and fat free cool whip! Don't worry about the taste of the fat free Eagle Brand--it's DELISH! The consistency is a little bit thinner than regular EB, but when the pie's chilled, you can't tell a bit of difference! We always have trouble finding the 6 oz can of lemonade, too. So we use a 12 oz and just make ourselves "suffer" through two pies;) The filling of this pie is so good that we've often joked of just whipping it up and eating it as a pudding. Hey, a few crumbled graham crackers and I think it'd be a hit!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2003
These were simply amazing. I made them for my dad as part of his Father's Day gift and they are nearly all gone! He made the mistake of offering some to my mom, brother, sister-in-law...you get the point. I halved the recipe (still came out with about 50 cookies) and added a few things. I added an extra 1/2 cup of brown sugar, an extra teaspoon of vanilla and one teaspoon of salt. I used buttered flavored Crisco, so I also added about four tablespoons of water. Instead of vanilla pudding, I used Jell-O Sugar Free Instant White Chocolate pudding and it tasted fabulous!! I used 1 bag of milk chocolate chips, a quarter of a bag of peanut butter chips, and I even added a couple of handfuls of walnuts. Next time, I won't use quite so many fillings, though. The cookie part itself is so good without all of those tasty chips! Like I said, I started off with 50 cookies last night. There are now 22, lol.
