Fruit Pizza I

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Fabulous as is! DO NOT add Cool Whip to this! Why would you add something unnatural to this? I am not sure, but there is NO NEED for it! The 1/2 c white sugar IS powdered sugar. It would have been helpful for the directions to say this, but I still used powdered anyway. Thank you to the reviewers who mentioned to cut the pizza before topping it and to make sure the fruit was dry. Very yummy! A perfect dessert for a pizza themed dinner I was doing for our small group. Everyone loved it.

Chocolate Sheet Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
Wowza!!!! This was absolutely the BEST chocolate cake!!!!! However, it is truly a sheet cake and probably would not do well if you are thinking 2 layer cake. I used all butter, NO margarine or shortening and left out the cinnamon. Cooked as directed. Iced as directed. Every one of our guests was raving about this cake and there was not a crumb left. I will make this cake over and over again. DO NOT be swayed by those who said it was dry or flavorless! The recipe cannot compensate for lack of skill in the kitchen!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
Nothing compares to this bread. I live in Europe and I would rather eat this bread than the bread from the local boulangerie!!!! I was very skeptical about putting the ingredients in the wrong order, but it works perfect every single time! I added 1/2t salt and I do half whole wheat, half bread flour. I make 2 loaves every weekend for us to use for sandwiches and toast throughout the week. Amazing and truly the BEST bread machine bread!

Grilled Chicken with Herbs

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
We all liked this chicken. After reading the reviews about it being a little too tart, I too changed the quantities of oil and vinegar and added a touch of brown sugar. I did 1/3 c oil, 1/4 vinegar, and 1 T brown sugar. Worked well. Glad for the reviews.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2013
Perfectly delicious! We used skinless chicken thighs and it was delicious. I did make extra marinade, boiled it, and allowed guests to pour over the finished chicken. Loved it!

Make Ahead French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
Absolutely couldn't be simpler! I didn't have half and half so I just used 2% milk and it turned out beautifully. I used 2 whole baguettes because it's what I had in the pantry. I ended up making 1 1/2 recipes so that I could do some with pecans and some without. I will definitely be making this in the future. I will say that it didn't look too appetizing the night before, but once I put the topping on in the morning it looked beautiful. I reduced the milk by 1/2 c and it wasn't soggy at all! Perfect first day of school breakfast!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
Delicious and easy. I like that it makes 2 loaves. I did use 1 c whole wheat flour and used half the oil, replacing the other half with applesauce. I also used half brown sugar/half white sugar. And yes, I modified the recipe! But not so much that it's a whole new recipe! I simply made substitutions. I like when people comment on substitutions so that when I am reading through reviews I know if I can "healthen" up the recipe and still make it work.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
Very good basic recipe; however, not 5 stars for me because it has a very overpowering vinegar bite to it. I combatted that by heeding the advice of other reviewers and adding about a tablespoon of honey. When done this way, I will make it again and again.

Apple, Brie, and Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
This salad was perfect for company! I've always eaten apples with brie, but never considered them in a salad. What a great idea! Thank you!

Angel Food Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
Followed the recipe almost exactly as it is! I didn't have almond extract so I just used 1 t vanilla and it was excellent! Very easy to make. I was nervous about not spraying or greasing the pan, but I left it ungreased like the recipe said. It came out perfectly! Try this...you will not be disappointed and you will never again buy one of those styrofoam cakes they sell in the store!

Candy Coated Pecans

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Absolutely fabulous! I didn't change a thing and they were awesome! I decided to let my 11 year old try the recipe while I "coached" her through it and did the actual baking. The recipe was easy enough for her to follow and all 6 of us were in choco-heaven! We ate a lot, but froze the rest for that moment when we just need a little chocolate! These will be a staple cookie in our home!

Jenny's Grilled Chicken Breasts

I was surprised by the amount of flavor in this dish! I poked a few holes in the chicken, but followed everything else as recipe states. Very good & will do again!

Balsamic Marinated Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
The entire family really enjoyed this recipe. I made it as is, but cooked it for 35 min at 350 degrees. Extremely moist, very flavorful. Husband asked for more red pepper flakes next time. Also, I believe I would marinate even longer than I did (2 hrs).

Toasted Breadcrumbs

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Worked perfectly. Very simple. I did place mine on a baking sheet and because of that it did take longer, but the method is foolproof!

Bev's Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly as stated. I did let the mixture come to a boil before I added the eggs. I also added some of the hot mixture to the eggs to bring them up in temp before adding them all to the hot mixture. This pie is great! So easy and very yummy!
