Caramel Apple Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
I served this dip with sliced apples at my son's birthday party, and it was delicious! I used caramel ice cream topping instead of the caramels because I was in a hurry. A nice change of pace from store bought dip.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This was easy, tasty, and great for a cold winter day. My husband and I packed it for lunch at work and it was filling, nutritious, and low in calories. If I was making it for a main dish at dinner, I'd brown ground turkey breast or 96% fat free ground beef to add to the mixture. I'll make this again, but probably only if we're dieting.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
I made this for Thanksgiving dinner, and it was a big hit. I made it the night before. The next day, I covered it with aluminum foil and reheated it in the oven. I accidentally left it in the oven way too long, but it was delicious anyway. My family has always made candied sweet potatoes with marshmallows, so I was a little nervous about trying something new. My father, brother, and daughter are the three sweet potato lovers in my family, and they all gave it two thumbs up. I'll definitely make this again next year.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This is a no-fuss recipe that turns out pretty well. It won't go into my regular rotation, but I will probably make it again in the future. I used 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup and substituted fat free sour cream for the cream cheese. I served it over yolk-free noodles. It didn't knock my socks off, but it was a nice meal.

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
Love, love, love this soup! It's easy to make, but it can be a bit of a hassle to roast the cauliflower first. The first time, my husband and I ate the roasted cauliflower beforeI could make the soup. The second time, I actually made the soup and it was delicious! I might cut back a little on the salt next time. Even my cauliflower-hating kids ate this soup, and that's a big deal at my house!

Jif® Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
Absolutely the best peanut butter fudge I've ever made. My Mom, who is a fudge expert, thought it was better than her favorite recipe, and that's saying something! This fudge is very creamy and has a nice peanut butter flavor. This fudge is easy to make and would make a great recipe for someone who has never made fudge before. I plan to make this every Christmas.

Million Dollar Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This was pretty good, but it's not that perfect recipe that I've been looking for. My batch was a little too hard, so I might not cook it as long next time around (if there is a next time). One of my coworkers really liked it and said it reminded her of old-fashioned fudge. It was an easy recipe, but not quite as creamy as I'd like.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
If you're looking for something quick and easy to satisfy that sweet tooth, this is the recipe for you! They do remind me of peanut butter cups. I threw these together for a school luncheon, and they got great reiews! Be sure to allow plenty of time for them to set up. I was afraid that mine would be too runny, but they were firm enough after refrigerating overnight. My husband and kids loved these bars, so I'm planning on adding them to my list of Christmas goodies!

Pumpkin Cookie Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
I took this to a Halloween party. I thought this was an easy recipe, though it didn't get the rave reviews that I expected. In fact, very few people even tried it. My three kids, however, loved it - even the one that doesn't like pumpkin! I substituted a teaspoon pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon and added 1/4 cup powdered sugar for a sweeter taste. I agree with the reviewer that said to be sure the cream cheese was completely softened and also with the reviewer who creamed the pumpkin and cream cheese before adding the marshmallow cream. Otherwise, you may end up with little lumps of cream cheese that don't look very appealing (ask me how I know). It was probably the least popular dish at the party and no one commented on it at all. In spite of that, I'll be making this again. My family and I enjoyed it.

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
This is a simple and delicious dish. I'm the only one in my family that likes squash, so I eat half for dinner and half for lunch. I like to cook them in the microwave. I place them, cut sides up,in a glass dish with a little water in the bottom. I spread a little light stick margarine on the insides and sprinkle it with Splenda brown sugar blend. Cover and microwave for 10 to 12 minutes on high power. Easy, tasty, and nutritious!

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
I found this recipe to be bland and a little bit boring. It definitely needs ore seasoning and less soup. The chicken was drowning in the sauce, and I couldn't taste the cheesse flavor at all. My husband thought it tasted like canned chicken noodle soup. My family ate this without complaint, but I suspect they won't eat the leftovers. If I make this again (not any time soon) I'll follow another reviewer's suggestion and use cubed Velveeta instead of the Cheddar soup, less liquid, and more spices.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2007
I will definitely make this one again! The whole family ate it - even my hubby who doesn't usually like chicken and dumplings. My kids usually leave the chicken chunks in the bottom of the bowl when I make chicken and dumplings on the stove. However, the chicken was so tender from cooking all day in the slow cooker that all three kids gobbled it right up. I made a few slight changes, but I think this recipe would be fine as it is. I used fat free chicken broth instead of water and added marjoram, basil, and a bay leaf. I would have added celery and carrots, but the kids wouldn't have liked it. I intended to make Bisquik dumplings, but I didn't have any baking mix on hand. So, I used canned biscuit dough. The dumplings were pretty good and very easy. I didn't think they tasted like canned biscuits at all. Still, I'll make my favorite (and easy) baking mix dumplings next time around. It's good to know that canned biscuit dough will work in a pinch. All in all a great basic recipe!

Aunt Jewel's Chicken Dressing Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
Finally, a dish that the whole family enjoyed! I did make a few changes. I picked up an extra box of stuffing and I'm glad I did. One box wasn't enough to cover a 13x9 dish, but two was perfect. I used two pounds of chicken tenderloins. I spooned the soup mixture over the chicken enough to cover it, but reserved the rest of the mixture to keep the casserole from being too soupy. I added canned chicken broth to the reserved soup mixture and doubled the liquid used to moisten the stuffing, since I used two boxes. All three of my kids and my husband loved it, and that doesn't happen very often!

Aunt Betty's Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This recipe was easy and delicious. I would definitely make it again. I think it would be great layered in a trifle bowl. It was very simple to throw together and didn't taste like instant pudding. It wasn't as spectacular as the old-fashioned baked banana pudding that I love, but it did produce tasty results with very little effort.

Hearty Pasta Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
All in all, a great recipe. Even the kids liked it. I made this on the stove because my crockpot wasn't big enough. I used turkey Italian sausage. If you're expecting traditional tomato soup, you will be surprised! This thick and hearty soup is tasty and filling. With the turkey sausage, it was low in Weight Watchers points, too. I will definitely make this one again. I have a bigger slow cooker now, so I'll try using it the next time around.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
This is an old standby at my house. my mother made this many times while I was growing up, and it was one of my favorite meals. My husband now loves this pot roast! I don't always brown the roast first, depending on how rushed I am that morning. The last time I made this, I peeled and sliced the potatoes the night before and stored them in a ziplock bag with water. I placed the raw beef, seasonings, and onions in a crockpot liner sealed with a twist tie and popped it in the fridge. The next morning, I just had to untie the crockpot liner and place it in the pot. I drained the potatoes and opened a bag of peeled baby carrots to add to the pot. Easy and delicious!

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
This is a faithful standby for me. It's so easy that th ekids can help make it. I can throw it together in no time. Even though it's soooo easy, it's still delicious! I never have leftovers when I take this to a potluck!

Polka Dots

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
I forgot to make cookies for my son's nursery school graduation. I found this recipe and whipped it up after work. I used butterscotch chips. The cookies disappeared in no time flat. A good basic recipe when you're sort on time.

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2007
These are really delicious, chewy, and fudgy cookies. They're easy to make, and you can vary the recipe to suit your taste. I've made this recipe several times. I use creamy peanut butter because that's what I always have on hand. I've also substituted a cup of coconut for the third cup of oatmeal and it turned out fine. This is a great recipe, but it's not much different than the other no bake cookies I've made. Still, I gave it 5 stars because these are super easy cookies that will satisfy your chocolate craving!

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
This is a super easy recipe that still tastes great! I used a bag of coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots), which I chopped a little more in the food processor. I added a little pepper and celery seed to the dressing, but followed the directions otherwise. It was a delicious, no-fuss side dish for my son's birthday cookout. Thanks!
