Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
I used this to top "Carrot Cake Bars". It was the first time I'd made, it was the first time I'd made cream cheese frosting, and I think i found a keeper! Super quick (if you remember to lay out the butter and cream cheese to thaw) and very creamy and delicious, without tasting too sugary. I used neufchatel cream cheese (less fat) and thought it worked very well. The kids went nuts for this. Almost as easy as canned frosting, but a thousand times better! Oh, and it was super spreadable, too.

Carrot Cake Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
I thought this was an easy and delicious recipe. The flavor is MUCH better the second day, so I'd suggest making it a day ahead. I needed desserts for two different Easter parties, and this recipe made enough for both! I used half egg substitute and half eggs, substituted unsweetened applesauce for half of the oil, and used Splenda instead of half the sugar. No one was the wiser, and the cake was still very moist and flavorful. I topped it with a basic cream cheese frosting. I cut it into squares, and it was definitely more of a cake than a bar. I definitely recommend this quick and simple recipe!

Lisa's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
This was an easy recipe and sold quickly at a bake sale. It looked so good that my kids wanted me to buy it back for them! Luckily, the buyer (a friend) shared a slice with us. Delicious! It was chocolatey, moist, and dense without being heavy. A definite hit!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
I loved this recipe because it was quick, easy, and set up without becoming hard and brittle. I microwaved mini chips, butter, and corn syrup for 30 seconds and stirred in the vanilla. It was a little thick, which made it more of a challenge to drizzle, but it looked great and stuck to the cake. The taste is superb. I was worried that it would taste like plain old chocolate chips, but it didn't taste that way at all.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
I agree with Cookinginflorida. I felt that the fudge turned out too hard and tasted a bit too much like chocolate chips. Not really what I had hoped for. With all of the great reviews, I thought this recipe might be provide an easier way to make old-fashioned fudge. Unfortunately, I was wrong.

World's Best Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
I thiught this fudge was pretty good, but it was a bit too sugary. Next time, I'll use a little less sugar and a little more peanut butter for more peanut butter flavor. I usually don't care for fudge made with marshmallow creme, but I'll definitely make this one again!

Basic Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
Great starting place for an easy family meal that everyone enjoys. Leftovers are even better! I used less pasta (about 2/3 of a 16 oz package) and about 32 oz. of my favorite basil and oregano sauce. I also sauteed onions and garlic with the ground beef and added Italian seasoning to the sauce. Some reviewers think that cheddar and spaghetti makes a strange combination, but I love it! My mom always uses cheddar cheese in her baked spaghetti. I recommend a cheddar and mozzarella bend. I layered spaghetti, cheese, and spaghetti. I added the cheese on top during the last few minutes of baking. I served it with grated parmesan and garlic cheese toast. I'm sure I'll make this one again!

Bubba's Pretzel Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2005
Ever since I took this to an Easter dinner, we can't have a family gathering without this dessert! I've tried pretzel salad with strawberries, but the pineapple gets a much better response. I've handed out the recipe so often that I've lost count!

Four Layer Delight

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2005
This is a simple, yet impressive dessert. I made it in two smaller pans and gave one to a friend. The pecan crust adds a little something extra, and the butterscotch flavor is nice for a change. The recipe is versatile in that different flavors of pudding can be used. I'll definitely make it again.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2005
This one is a keeper! I followed the recipe exactly and took it to a church dinner. The trifle dish wash scraped clean! I took it to a dinner at my kids' school the next week and came home with another empty bowl. I plan to make it again for a party. This rich dessert is super easy to prepare and looks very impressive in a trifle bowl. I couldn't get the chocolate curls to look as nice as I wanted. I may try chocolate sprinkles or mini chocolate trips if I'm in a rush. I definitely recommend this on for potlucks!

Corn Pudding V

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2005
My 12 year-old daughter mixed this up with no difficulties. I'd never tried a corn pudding recipe without eggs, but we all agreed that this turned out great! Thanks for a simple, yet delicious, recipe!

Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2005
Wish I had read all of the reviews before making this! This was way too salty. I'll definitely halve the salt next time. I parboiled the potatoes before baking. I didn't eat much of it because of the salt (even double-checked my measuring spoon to make sure I had added the correct amount). My kids did enjoy the pork chops. All in all, I think it is a good basic dish. Use this recipe as a starting point and dress it up with the seasonings that you prefer.

Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2005
I've tried different recipes, but I'll use this one from now on! The cake mix makes it easy and delicious. I used a stick of softened butter and half a cup shortening for the filling. I have to say that I wasn't crazy about the cakes when I first assembled them, but they were amazing out of the refrigerator the next day! My co-worker had fond memories of whoopie pies from her childhood, and I thought she'd be hard to please. She thought these tasted even better than the ones she remembered.

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2004
This was a pretty good recipe. I seasoned the pork chops as I browned them. I thought they would have been too bland without the extra seasoning. It took longer than expected to cook the pork chops and cubed hash brown potatoes. I skimped on the cheese, but I'll use the full amount in the future. Next time, I'm going to try boneless chops and shredded potatoes.

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2004
My daughter took these to school for "Apple Week". The kids loved them! I dusted the bars with confectioners sugar, and they were great! Next time, I'll sprinkle them with sugar just before serving. They were so moist that the sugar dissolved quickly. Delicious!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
Loved it! I've tried several different recipes for baked and stovetop rice pudding. This is the winner by far! It was the perfect consistency, with just the right amount of sweetness. I don't usually put raisins in my rice pudding, but I liked the golden raisins in this one. I'll probably make it without the raisins for my kids.
