The Ultimate Brownie

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
great recipe, but misleading on the size...I put mine in a 9x13 pan and it cooked within 35 mintues.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
great flavor! I too was in a hurry and did not read the reviews that mentioned using less water. I was able to fix it by pureeing 1/3 of the soup (remove the sausage first!). Thanks for the recipe!

Cheesecake Supreme

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Definitely not the best I've had. I wish I'd listened to the others about reducing the sugar. I did, however, bake it for 3 hours instead of one. It still came out a little softer than I prefer. I think I'll stick with my grandmother's tried and true recipe. Thanks though...

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Wow! Really great recipe! Definitely heavy on the fat, but my husband and I both really enjoyed it.

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2006
These are really amazing cookies. I used organic peanut butter (without added sugar) and they were perfect - my husband has never liked a peanut butter cookie until now!

Apple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
Excellent recipe - very moist, but not too dense. My husband loves it for breakfast, I love it for dessert!

Broccoli Chicken Casserole III

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2006
After reading others' advice, I ended up leaving out the curry and cooking the pasta separately to serve the casserole on top of. I also substituted cream of mushroom soup since others mentioned liking mushrooms in it. I wish I had used frozen broccoli - the fresh broccoli did not cook in 30 minutes. I ended up having to cook it for another 20 minutes covered. Overall, it's a really tasty recipe!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Excellent recipe - very moist and tasty. I used 2 9" round pans and made a layer cake (baked in about 30 minutes) - turned out great!! This will be the recipe I use for carrot cake from now on.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
Really great recipe. I accidently doubled the butter, but it was still excellent. I used whole wheat spaghetti to add a little more color and for the extra nutrients. My husband had seconds - which is very rare. It also reheats well the next day.

Chicken Monterey

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
I generally liked this recipe. The sauce is more onion-based than I like, however. I had to bake it at 325 until it simmered - 300 didn't seem right. Next time I'll reduce the onions and add some heavy cream. For some reason, it tasted better the next day - the flavors had time to meld a little more.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2006
This recipe would get five stars, but it was really all the reviewers who made it excellent! I combined ideas and added a little cooking wine in the crockpot (about 1/4 cup). I was worried that the chicken would be in for too long without much liquid, but it turned out SOOO good (even after 9 hours, since I work full time). The only other change I made was to cut the cream cheese in half - I'm VERY glad I did because it was really creamy and I think it would have been overkill to add more than the 4 oz. of cream cheese. Thanks to all the reviewers for the suggestions!

Husband's Delight

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2006
I followed the reviewers' suggestions and put the pasta at the bottom and cooked the onions with the beef and added more tomato sauce. The casserole came out just fine - the taste was okay. I really didn't like how much cream cheese there was - a little too strong for me. Next time, I'll try reducing the cream cheese and adding even more tomato sauce to the beef.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
The ONLY substitution I made was chicken for the beef. They were excellent. I used 4 chicken breasts and simply diced & sauted. 4 may have been 1 too many since the wraps didn't turn out to be as messy as other reviewers described - the mixture came out quite solid and managable. To add some fun, I serve a wasabi ginger sauce on the side (to spoon into the wrap) - that really did the trick! You can find it in the Asian section at your grocery store usually. I will DEFINITELY make these again!!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
I followed this recipe almost exactly and it came out wonderfully! I used 9 fresh peaches (they were small peaches). My husband, who is a born southerner, says that this was the best peach cobbler he'd ever tasted.

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
This is a great recipe for authentic asian noodles. I know some people said they didn't like the flavor combination, but this is the flavor combination Asian noodles SHOULD have! I do agree that the recipe could get away with less safflower oil - I would say 4 tlbs would be plenty...all it really needs to do is help coat the noodles. I served this on the side with the Asian Lettuce Wraps. Thanks!

Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
This soup is AWESOME. I made it according to the directions and loved it, but my husband thought there were too many different chunks in it. So the second time I tried cooking the onions for much longer until they carmelized. Then I puree'd the carrots with the tomatoes, tomato sauce, fresh basil, and wine. I dumped that puree in with the sausage & onions, then sprinkled the oregano in. I followed the recipe for the rest. It turned out perfect. Thanks!!!!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
so easy, so yummy! I served it with asparagus and mashed potatoes and it was a hit! I did end up using half mayo/half sour cream and it was awesome. I also seasoned the chicken with salt & pepper and pressed garlic into the breasts before spreading the artichoke mixture on top.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
This recipe really is great - I always try to add fiber and other nutrients to my recipes, so I put 2 cups of white flour and 2 1/2 cups of spelt flour. I also used butter instead of margerine...and I didn't have any cream cheese on hand, but a regular powdered sugar frosting was still great!!
