Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2003
This is a great cookie! So easy and really rich and chocolaty. I used margarine because I didn't have any butter and it turned out great. I also left out the raisins, just because I'm not a fan of raisins in cookies. I will definitely make these again. I think they are at the top of my families favorite cookie recipes now! Thanks!

Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2003
Really great recipe. My husband is picky and he said this was the best new recipe I'd made in a very long time! I did as many of the other reviewers said, and added a 15 oz carton of ricotta, and also cut the chedder in half and replaced the other half with mozzarella. Very easy and tasty. I sprinkled a little garlic powder in my filling mixture too. I think the dough is very easy to work with and tasty too!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2003
The BEST! The crumb topping makes them so unique and good for breakfast or a snack. Very easy to make. I actually got 14 from the recipe rather than 10. I used a regular size muffin pan, filled 3/4 full of batter, before adding the topping. This is going to be a recipe that becomes a favorite in my family and we will use often. Thanks!

Tasty Meat Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2003
I thought this was ok, a little bland for my taste though, even after I added a little garlic powder to try to spice it up. I think I would have to really add something to make it worth having again. It's a good basic recipe to build on though.

Easy Chocolate Banana Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2003
This is a great cake, very moist and dense. I didn't have a cake mix on hand, so I just found a recipe for a white cake in a cookbook and combined the dry ingredients, then added everything from this recipe. The dry ingredients I added were 2 cups all purpose flour, 1 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp salt and 3 1/2 tsp baking powder. Turned out fabulous! Highly recommend it, with or without frosting. Will make again.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2003
Great recipe, but needed a little something to jazz it up a bit. I added a little garlic powder. I think some green onions or cheese would also be great in it. I will definitely make this again. It got rave reviews from my inlaws so I know it's a keeper!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2003
Fabulous! I will stick with this recipe. It is wonderful and everyone loved it. I followed the directions, cooking it an hour, then cooling 6 hours in the oven, door closed, oven off. It still cracked. I was trying to be really careful not to overmix the eggs and flour when I put them in, maybe I still mixed it too much. I didn't do the water bath, maybe I'll try that next time. I don't care if it cracks, it was wonderful! Thanks!

Meatloaf With A Bite

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
The BEST meatloaf I've ever made. My husband raved, my picky 2 year old, who won't eat anything with hamburger, LOVED it! I used mozzarella in place of the monteray jack because that's what I had on hand. I also used the parmesan garlic flavored cheezit crackers in place of the saltines for the same reason. The 1 1/2 cups of salsa is perfect not too much at all. I had no problems with it firming up. I did have to bake it closer to an hour and 10 minutes, but that might have just been my oven. Great recipe, highly recommend!

Gone to Heaven Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2003
Excellent pie. I used a graham cracker crust, because that's what I had on hand, and it turned out great. It is a very rich pie so it will serve many. Easy to make and delicious. Will make again.

Fudgy Brownies I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
Great fudgy brownie recipe! I followed it exactly as written, didn't add any chocolate chips as some suggested, but I did use brown sugar in place of white-only because I was out of white. The brown sugar made NO difference in taste. I will make this one over and over. I like being able to make it with oil, I alwasy have that, but don't always have butter around the house. Thanks for the great recipe!

Creamy Slow Cooker Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
I thought this soup was great. As written I would give it 4 stars just because I think it could use a little boost. I added about twice as much cheese as called for and additional milk because it was quite thick. Instead of taking some out and blending it and then adding back in, I just put my hand mixer in the pot and blended until I got it the way I wanted it. I added minced fresh garlic and instead of 2 TBS chicken soup base, I just used a can of chicken broth because that's what I had on hand. I will definitely make this one again, but I also might try some of the other recipes for this sort of soup. Thanks!

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2004
Excellent. I made this just as the recipe said, with the addition of 2 cloves garlic, minced. I put my onion and garlic in with the melted butter, then stirred in the flour etc. I wanted to give the onion and garlic a minute or so to cook before adding it to the soup. I also added a few splashes of hot sauce, not to make it spicy, but to make it a little less bland. Loved the recipe and will make it all the time. My husband loved it as well and he isn't normally a soup type of person. Served it with crusty french bread and it made a great meal. Thanks!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
I thought this was excellent. I made it in a dark nonstick bundt cake pan and it cooked in just the amount of time the recipe calls for at 325. I substituted all purpose flour for the cake flour (for each cup of cake flour, substitute 1 cup all purpose MINUS 2 tablespoons) and used 2 tablespoons vanilla extract no almond extract. I used 1 cup butter flavor Crisco shortening and 1/2 cup Country Crock because I didn't have any butter. It turned out dense and moist and just perfect. I will definitely make this one again.

Stuffed Pork Chops III

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
My husband and I really didn't care for this recipe. We thought it was bland and the stuffing part was dry. I think that the pork chops need some marinade or something before you stuff them. I just used some black pepper and garlic powder and they were still a little bland, but still much better than the stuffing part. We ate the pork chops and didn't eat the stuffing. I think we just prefer something with a little more moisture and flavor. I did follow the recipe as written, didn't really have any "sauce" left after cooking. Maybe if you doubled up on the broth that would help. We won't use this recipe again.

Snickerdoodles V

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2004
Excellent! I used 3/4 c butter flavored Crisco and 1/4 c country crock margarine because I was craving something sweet and that's all I had on hand! I also added 1 tsp vanilla when I was mixing in the eggs. The cookies turned out great. They were flatter, probably because of the margarine, but tasted fabulous. I will definitely be keeping this in my favorite cookie recipes! Thanks!

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
This was a great soup. I will definitely make this again. I didn't use dry beans though, used 3 cans of black beans. I also didn't use the 6 cups of chicken broth. I used 3 14 oz cans and it still was very watery. After I blended some of the soup with my hand mixer, it thickened up just enough. I didn't add the jalapeno pepper or the cayenne, just some red pepper flakes. I didn't have any hot pepper sauce so I added a 2 tablespoons of medium salsa. I chopped up some onion and added also. Love it! Thanks!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
These were good. I would make them again. But like the other reviews suggest, you need to double or triple the amount of spice/sauce for it to really be tasty.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
This is a great recipe. I used a package and 1/3 of semi sweet chocolate chips because that's what I had on hand. I don't think it needs any sort of topping at all, it is so rich and sweet. Definitely a dessert for a crowd because of this. I'll make it again. It is like something you would get in a restaurant.
