Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
This was my first time making homemade broccoli cheese soup. This was really, really, good! I used some suggested changes, like using half and half instead of milk, adding a few cloves of chopped garlic and reserving 1 cup of broth for the cornstarch instead of water. After broccoli simmered in the broth, I took it out in batches and processed and put back into the broth before I added the half and half and cheese. This is a great recipe. Thanks!

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
Oh my...I can see why this one got so many good ratings!! Rarely do I say that I LOVE a recipe, but I sure do love this one. Made as noted except that I used a boneless pork shoulder roast and rubbed 2 cloves minced garlic and some rib rub onto roast before adding to slow cooker. Used half a can beef broth and cooked for 8 hours. Drained, shredded and added the other half can of beef broth and the Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and cooked for another hour. YUM!!!! This one is a keeper for sure! Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
This was good, but based on most of the reviews, I guess I thought it would be great. I used a cup or so of chicken broth, and only half a bottle of wing sauce and I added the butter at the beginning. also added some bottled ranch dressing so it wouldn't be too salty as the package dressing tend to be very salty. Got home, shredded and added a little more sauce and let it simmer for 45 minutes. Toasted some kaiser rolls on the stove and added some more dressing onto the sandwich. It really does absorb much more of the flavor after it's shredded. Like I said, this was pretty good, but I was expecting more. Will make again from time to time.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Oh my gosh!! These are amazing. I used the entire package of oreos, ground them up into powder, then mixed them w/the softened cream cheese and a teaspoon of vanilla. You can use different flavored oreos (I tried mint flavered too!) and they we incredible. I refrigerated for an hour after rollng. Also, I melted Mercken's chocolate dsks nstead of the baking chocolate. Reaalllyy good! Got tons of compliments.

Best Easy Chicken Croquettes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Wasn't quite the recipe I thought it would be. Maybe it's something I did wrong in making them, but this just didn't do it for us.

Luscious Lima Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This was good, but next time, I will cut back on the carrots as 5 were way too many for our liking. Also, used chicken broth instead of the water and bouillion and added crumbled and browned sweet sausage. Nice winter soup. Thanks.

Cube Steak Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This was really good. I was looking for something different to do with cube steaks and this is it! I used seasoned flour/egg/breadcrumbs, and marinara sauce w/thick slices of mozzarella cheese. I will be making these more often. Great recipe. Thanks.

Favorite Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
This was a great recipe. Only changes I made were to coat the beef in seasonings (I used dried pot herbs) the night before and put in a ziploc bag overnight in the refrig, replaced the water with a can of beef broth and (added half a can of water too) and added a can of italian stewed tomatoes. Absolutely delicous recipe. The meat cut with a fork it was so tender. House smelled wonderful while this was cooking! Thanks for a great recipe.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
I made this exactly as written. Only difference was that instead of skewering them, I left them in the pan, covered it w/foil and cooked it on the grill. Came out very good. We put it over rice and the chicken was very tender. It was good, but it still was missing something in the flavor department. I expected a slightly sweeter taste. Will definitely make again, but may add some brown sugar give it a little more flavor.

Italian Love Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
I have been making this recipe for years. It's always a huge hit and comes off as an elegant dessert that takes very little time to make even though people think you fussed. I make mine in a foil lasagna pan (the higher one, not the short sided ones) and I usually end up using a 16 oz. cool whip (doesn't affect the flavor at all) and I put the extra frosting in dessert dishes as it's alot like chocolate mousse and is a great dessert all by itself. I make mine the night before and frost it the next day, I also sprinkle the frosted cake w/chocolate jimmies for an even prettier looking cake. If you get the foil pans that come w/the clear plastic lids, I find they work best as they don't come in contact w/the frosting. Delicious is all I can say!

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I thought this was just okay. Not sure what I was expecting. There was nothing wrong w/this, just nothing that "wowed" me about it either. If I make again, I may make as a filling for taco shells. I love mexican so I'm not sure why this didn't do it for me, but...

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
This was one of the best soup recipes I've tried on this site. It was absolutely delicious and will probably taste even better the next day. Even seems like it would freeze well. I used a lb. of crumbled sweet sausage (taken out of it's casing) for extra flavor, and one large and one small can of chicken broth instead of water. I browned the sausage, removed to a dish then sauteed the veggies, garlic and seasonings in a little olive oil, added sausage back to pot and cooked for 15 minutes, then added the lentils, broth and tomatoes, (I used the fired roasted w/garlic tomatoes as another reviewer suggested and they were great for this soup) and let it simmer for 2 hours. Stirred spinach in about 1/2 hour before I was going to turn off the heat. Never even added the balsamic vinegar as it was already so good that I didn't want to take a chance on changing the flavor. This is a keeper. Having the rest today and I already can't wait to make again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
I made this recipe, but changed it up a bit. I didn't use the cheese at all. For time, I used two large cans of chicken breast, (I shredded it with a fork), used 2 8 oz. packages of cream cheese, 1 8 oz. bottle blue cheese dressing (didn't care for the ranch) and half cup hot sauce. Mix all but the chicken w/an electric mixer, stir in chicken. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes and serve with crackers. Was really good.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
This was good in that you dump everything in the slow cooker and let it do the work for you. Was good, but seemed like it needed more of a boost in flavor. Will play around with other spices next time I make it. Great meal for a busy work day.

Vegetable Beef Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
This soup was awesome. I was looking for a good, 'regular' beef vegetable soup that used normal ingredients. This was exactly what I was looking for. The only changes I made were that I used a 46 oz. bottle of V8, 2 cans of beef broth, 2 16 oz. bags of frozen veggies, a package of onion soup mix and instead of the spices noted, I put a little oil in bottom of pot put the stew meat in the pot and sprinkled them with pot herb (a dried herb mixture found in spice stores and supermarkets made for soups and stews). When the meat browned, I added all of the other ingredients and some basil and black pepper and simmered for several hours. Served w/rye bread and butter for dipping. DELICIOUS! Will make again and again! Thanks for a great recipe.

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This was really good and super easy. I ended up using the 12 oz. cool whip and it was still great. Will try another user's suggestion for homemade chocolate topping next time. Thanks for a great recipe.

Grandmother's Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
This was very, very good. My first time making homemade and I was very pleased. I only used 3/4 cup sugar instead of a full cup based on other's reviews. It was perfect. And the sauce was soooo good. Definitely will make this again and again. Thanks for a great recipe.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
Didn't really care for these. The brownies were very hard after they cooled. People said they were just 'okay'...probably won't make these again.

Chocolate Covered Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
I use melted Merckens chocolate discs, not chips and vegetable oil (the best tasting chocolate for these in my book are the Mercken's discs). Also, I noted that you should refrigerate for a short while so the candies are easier to roll and dip. These steps might help make these a favorite for you.
