Turtle Candy

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2005
Here's a variation on the recipe: 1-14 oz pkg caramels 2 1/2 T. Evaporated Milk 2 cups Chopped Pecans 1-24 oz pkg chocolate Bark Combine caramels & evaporated milk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2 to 2 1/2 min, stirring frequently. Add the pecans and mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet. Freeze for 2 hours. Melt the chocolate bark in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave for 2 to 2 1/2 min, stirring frequently. Dip the caramel drops in the melted chocolate bark and place on waxed paper to cool. Yields 3-4 dozen. They taste just like Pixies!!

Banana Pie

Reviewed: May 31, 2005
Super Yummy! No leftovers in my house! I bought a box of graham cracker crumbs (instead of making my own-to save prep time). Instead of 2 boxes of banana pudding, I used 1 box of banana pudding and 1 box of french vanilla. Also, I layered as follows: graham cracker crumbs, banana slices, 1/2 of the pudding mixture, a layer of vanilla wafers, the other 1/2 of pudding mixture, another banana slice layer, then the whipped topping. I used more bananas than the recipe called for, because my family loves them! My husband said it's his new favorite dessert!

Black Friday Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
This recipe was very good. I didn't have any leftover stuffing, but decided I'd just make a box of it while it was cooking. I assembled everything else only to discover I didn't have any stuffing! So instead of the stuffing I tore up some leftover rolls & put them on top. I melted some butter, added turkey rub seasoning to the butter, then brushed it on top of the bread. During the last few minutes of baking, I added some french fried onions (to add some extra flavor since I didn't have the stuffing). I was hoping I'd get a little more solid of a "crust" with the potatoes, but it was still soft (even though the top edges were getting brown). Nice way to use up the Thanksgiving leftovers & it had lots of flavor.

Edible Spiders

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
I made these for my twin 5 year olds' Kindergarten Party at school. The kids all loved them! Of course, I did make some changes to the recipe. . . I used 1 bag of milk chocolate morsels and one bag on butterscotch morsels melted together in the microwave, 1/2 a pretzel stick for each leg, mini M&Ms for the eyes, and only about 1/2 of a large marshmallow for the body. I put a dallop of chocolate on waxed paper, added the pretzel legs (so they stuck out of the chocolate), and added the candy eyes, then transferred to the freezer for a couple of minutes to harden (it doesn't take long). After they were set (they looked like smooshed spiders-reminded me of the spiders in the Garfield comic strip after he smacks them with a newspaper!) I dipped a 1/2 a marshmallow in chocolate and set it on top of the "smashed spider" (not covering up the eyes, though!) which then gave it a "puffy spider" look. It was rather time consuming, but it was worth it because the kids really enjoyed it!

Crab Salad III

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2005
Great recipe! I omitted the olives and radish (personal preference) and the vinegar (didn't have any in stock); I added added cucumbers and carrots (clearing out my veggie drawer). Instead of lemon juice I used lime juice and instead of mayonaise I used Light Miracle Whip(just because of what I had in stock). I never would've thought to add lemon or lime juice or tomato to crab salad - but it's SO YUMMY! I seasoned with dill, Italian Seasoning,season salt, pepper, & garlic. I also used 1 lb of seashell macaroni, so I added more of the "dressing", more veggies, and I used (2) 8oz pkgs of chunck-style imitation crab (in the refrigerated section of the grocery store-I found mine by the pickles/lunchmeat/frozen shrimp). This recipe is definitely a keeper and great to make on a hot summer day - since you don't have to turn on your oven! Prep time wasn't too bad - while I waited for my water to boil, I started cutting up veggies, put my seashells in to boil, continued chopping and by the time my pasta was done I was done chopping. While cold water was pooring over the pasta, I mixed up the "dressing". Can't wait to make it again!

Speedy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Fast, easy, & delicious. My kids asked if I would make it again tomorrow. I made a few slight variations to the recipe - I used shredded cheese instead of the cheddar cheese soup (since I didn't have any in my cupboard), I used bean & corn salsa instead of the Thick & Chunky, and baked it at 350 for 15 min instead of microwaving (gave me time to clean up the kitchen). I also sprinkled a little garlic & herb seasoning on the chicken while cooking it. I ended up getting more than 8 enchiladas...which worked well for us! You could easily use any leftover chicken/rotisserie chicken to make this too.

Chinese Cabbage Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2005
Wonderful Recipe!!! I changed it slightly to serve more - I doubled the amount of dressing, doubled the ramen noodles, shredded a head of Nappa cabbage and used rice vinegar instead of cider (same amount of cashews and green onions). I took it to a potluck and everyone LOVED it!! Reminded me a lot of Applebee's Oriental Salad (you could add sliced chicken nuggets if you wanted more of a meal).

Oreo™ Cookie Bark

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I took the advice of another & used the vanilla flavored candy coating. It turned out delicious. I think a 1/2 batch spread out in a jellyroll pan would've worked, too (I like my bark a little on the thinner side). Very easy, very good.

Incredibly Easy Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2003
This recipe is the best and easiest Chicken & Noodle recipe I've ever found. I've made it several times already. I generally use chicken tenders instead of regular breast meat (since they are more tender), plus I usually brown the chicken and simmer it in garlic and onion. Then I slice the chicken up, and add it (along with the garlic and onion) to the soup mixture. I prefer using more noodles (since I like my chicken and noodles to be a little thicker). I try to make this whenever I have people over because everyone thinks it took me all day to make when in reality it only takes about 30-40 minutes!! Thank you Tammy for the great recipe!!

Pork Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I cut this recipe in 1/2 & followed the recipe completely. LOVED them! Way better than my favorite Chinese restaurant's pot stickers! Simple to make, just took a bit to get them all steamed. I did it in 3 batches, putting the done ones in the oven on warm to keep them warm until we were ready to eat.

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Very simple to make (I used my KA mixer)...very yummy to eat. I served with sliced strawberries on top, but ended up just wanting to eat the cake by itself because it was so good! Only change I made was I didn't use almond extract (didn't have any) so I used 2 tsp vanilla instead.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Great recipe. I've never made bread, crust, dough, etc from scratch but this was pretty simple. I was able to make 2 jellyroll pan sized pizzas with the recipe & posted a pic of one of them (I was pic# 188 at the time of this review).

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2004
This recipe is EXCELLENT!! I fed a large group of people (7 adults & 6 kids) that were hungry from working outside, so I adjusted the reciped to use 5 lbs of ground chuck (which is convenient since my grocery store sells it in a 5 lb roll). I cooked it in a 13x9 pan for about 1 1/2 hours. It was DELICIOUS! Everyone had second helpings, so there wasn't much left. I served it with mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, and coleslaw and had a Carmel Pecan Pie for dessert (another recipe found on this site). Everything was simple to prepare and was perfect for a chilly day!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
My family loved it. It was sweet yet had a bit of a kick. Unlike a previous reviewer, I thought the recipe made plenty of sauce for a good sized pizza (I made a jellyroll pan sized pizza).
