Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2005
I really liked the idea around this recipe - I've always loved chocolate and chips so this was a perfect union in my eyes! The only change I made was adding a little parawax to the chocolate so it wasn't so thick - it was easier to work with this way.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
LOVED this cookied, substituted the OJ for water (which you can't taste) and they turned out perfect. Everyone loved them. A great old fashion cookie that brings you right back to childhood. Thanks for sharing

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I didn't have any instant coffee so skipped the 'mocha' flavor in this recipe. LOVED the ch'late chip banana muffins this produced. Like others, increased the bananas and used a combination of brown / white sugars. A co-worker said it was all he could do to restrain himself from eating each and every one of them! I used semi-sweet chips & chunks but this would also be heavenly with milk chips.

Mom's Island Treasures

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
These are a five-star for a reason - a definite keeper! I increased the coconut to 1.5 cups and only used 3/4 c of butter. EXCELLENT and addictive cookies, so wholesome, comforting and truly homemade. I love finding a 'winner' like this!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Great idea and recipe. I've made these twice, once with a white cake mix and pistacho (sp?) pudding for a green cake and white coating, the next with cherry chip cake, white frosting, mini chocolate chips and white coating. I found that when I left the crust from the cake out of the cake ball mixture (so you didn't have the brown bits in it), you had to decrease your frosting, otherwise you didn't have the same cake like consistency. Love the idea and will be making again.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
So delicous! Like others mine 'fell' in the middle but they still tasted great. I added 1/3 C of walnuts and 1/2 C of milk chocolate chips and frosted with chocolate frosting. Needless to say, they were rich but heavenly! The nice crisp crust keeps the brownies moist - love this recipe!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Love, love, LOVE this recipe! Like others I used 1/2 c chopped macadamia nuts and about 1 c of chocolate chips. Bake them until just lightly browned around the edges, remove from oven, cool for a few minutes on the pan as stated in the recipe then transfer to wire rack. I agree that they're better the next day, the sweetness is more pronounced. A new keeper!

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
This is the first time I made a 'real' pie with a homemade pie crust. I followed the instructions which worked out well but I like my rhubarb sweet so I upped the amount of sugar to 1 1/2 cups. I used a deep dish pie plate and the filling didn't boil out of the crust, I also wrapped the edges in foil until the last 15 minutes to prevent burning. Cooled it to room temp then refridgerated it and it set perfectly. This pie was beautiful and delicious! It's a keeper.

Fruit Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
Everyone LOVED this salsa! I halved the cilantro, cut back a bit on the onion and added an extra tomato and also mango to make it go a little further (to keep up with the demand!). This recipe sounds like an odd combination of flavours but it works!

Country White Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
My first time making bread from scratch and it was a success! The recipe / dough was simple and easy to work with. It took about 1 1/2 hours for the dough to rise the first time (so don't loose faith if yours hasn't doubled in the one hour, and when baking, I would probably check it after 20 minutes next time as I like my bread a light golden brown instead of a darker brown (25 minutes). I brushed the tops with butter (with wax paper) when I took them out of the oven to give them a sheen and soften the crust. This was a dense bread of substance yet had a nice soft texture. A winner.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Loved this soup! It almost tasted like a ham and scalloped potato chowder if there was such a thing. I used cream, whole wheat flour in place of the milk / flour and added cooked bacon, diced carrots and frozen peas in addition to what was called for in the recipe - it was fabulous. Such a comforting dish in the winter.

Million Dollar Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I don't typically like chocolate fudge but loved this! I made two batches, one as written and the second using Hersey's special dark chocolate chips in place of the German chocolate and omitting the nuts. I prefered it without the nuts and the chips version was just as good. I cooked the recipe on the second lowest setting on my stovetop for about 10 - 15 minutes, bringing it to a rolling boil. I had the Fluff and chocolate ready in my Kitchen Aid mixer, added the hot syrup and mixed on the lowest setting until well blended. This fudge is so creamy and tasty, it turned out perfect both times and will be a new addition to my recipe collection.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
I LOVED this cake! I made it in 3-9" cake pans and had to add a couple of extra tblsp's of milk to the frosting but it was excellent! I may try spreading smooth peanut butter over the middle layers of frosting next time, just because I love chocolate and PB! This will definitely be my go-to recipe for chocolate cake!

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
A great cake! It's simplistic yet delicious. The texture and moistness improves the next day so I always make it the night before. I pour 1 tablespoon of vinegar into a one-cup measure and fill the rest with milk in place of the buttermilk.

No Cook Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
I just made this icing and it turned out beautifully! I'm not sure if it matters or not but I had my ingredients (egg white) at room temperature (I put all the ingredients except water in a bowl while the cake was baking and cooling). I added a pinch of salt to the dry ingredients (1/8 tsp?), mixed the ingredients and then added the boiling water. I found it took about 5-6 minutes on medium / med-high speed (I started on medium for a few minutes and finished on med-high).

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
Loved this recipe! I grated the zucchini (1 medium one yields 2 cups) on the smaller grate and although it doesn't look like much in the bowl (quantity-wise) it's quite ample for a 9x13 and will rise. Not as dense as a brownie, more like a very moist cake. Very chocolatey and just plain good!
