Kalamata Olive, Tomato, and Cheese Melt

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
This is one of our favorite recipes we have found on this site. I omit the jalapeno peppers, use a mexican blend cheese instead of the cheddar and add diced chicken. I toss everything together in a lasagna pan and bake it. The red wine and kalamata olives really make this recipe delicious.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Delicious cake-like cookies. I found that if you refridgerate the dough in between batches it is a little less sticky and easier to work with. I also dipped the back of a spoon in flour to flatten the cookies.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
I was thrilled to find an easy and delicious scratch coconut pie! 5 stars with these changes: I used the microwave method that others recommended and it's true it works like a charm, so go ahead and try it. I used 1/4 C of flour and 1/4 C cornstarch, but I would recommend only using cornstarch bc it dissolves and mixes in more easily without any lumps imo. Other tips: I used 1/2 coconut milk 1/2 whole milk, coconut extract, 2 eggs and 1 yolk. My coconut took longer to brown-13 mins, but take the time to toast it, bc it really brings out the coconut flavor and it's a pretty presentation. If you make the whipped topping recommended by others here, it makes way too much for one pie. I would half it:( 1/2 carton of heavy whipping cream, I preferred 3 T of the confectioners sugar instead of 2, 1 tsp vanilla). I piped mine on and it looked amazing. I also used a 9 inch deep dish pie crust and it was filled with only a little left over, which we used for sampling. ;) I made this pie the day bf Thanksgiving so it had a long time to set up, so I can't vouch for the time it takes to set. I made the whipped topping the day I was serving it. Loved this pie!!! Thanks OP!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Loved this icing! I used it last year to make some beautiful blue snowflake cookies and they looked like something from an upscale bakery. If you are looking to do detailed cookie decorating this is a great recipe. I tried frosting our Christmas cookies this year for a change and while they tasted good and were quite classic, they were not as pretty as the ones with this icing.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
This casserole was delicious. I baked 4 large sweet potatoes at 375 degrees for 1 1/2hrs. Slipped right out of the skins. Mixed this by hand bc I like the little lumps and didn't want it totally smooth. Thought the amount of sugar was perfect, not too sweet. My husband and I both agreed it did not taste like a dessert compared to others we've had in the past. Used canned evap milk. Doubled the vanilla and added some cinnamon. Baked at 350 degrees with another small casserole and that was fine, but did have to leave in a few extra minutes to get the topping done. Thank you OP! Loved it!

Sweet Pork for Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
Amazing! The only thing I changed was I only used 1 cup of brown sugar and didn't puree the salsa, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. We used for soft tacos. My family loved it. So easy and delicious. We will definitely be adding this to our dinner rotation. Thank you OP!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2013
You can trust to leave this recipe as is, which is rare! It's delicious. It's so nice to have a go to recipe that calls for everything you already have in your spice rack. The only thing I have to usually buy is the limes.

Easy Pumpkin Cream Trifle

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
I made this dessert for Thanksgiving this year and not only was it delicious, but makes for a gorgeous presentation layered in a trifle bowl. I made it exactly as written and it was perfect. It gets better and better the longer it is refridgerated. Everyone loved this dessert!

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Raisins and Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
I made this dish for Thanksgiving dinner this year instead of my usual sweet potato casserole and really enjoyed it so much more. I was growing tired of my sweet potato dish tasting more like a dessert, and really just wanted to enjoy the sweet potatoes by themselves without all the fluff. This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. It is sweet enough, but you are able to appreciate the sweet potatoes for what they are. It does only take 3 large sweet potatoes to cover bottom of dish in a single layer. I cut the potatoes in half rounds instead of cubes, as I think it makes for a nicer presentation. I sprinkled a little bit of cinnamon over the potatoes b/f adding liquid. I also used pure maple syrup, which I think is key. Incredibly easy and delicious.

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I thought these were delicious pretty much as is, except I put 1T salt. They had plenty of flavor for me, without too strong of a vinegar taste. I did drizzle the balsamic right out of the bottle over the potatoes, estimating the amount. Didn't feel good about dumping 1/4 cup over them even with tossing. Excellent side dish.

Easy Devonshire Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
This whipped cream is exactly what I was looking for to pipe around the edges of a pina colada cheesecake I make. I added another T. of sugar and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract and it was delicious! Thanks so much for sharing.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
We enjoyed this BBQ! I omitted the brown sugar b/c I bought honey BBQ sauce. I used 4 large chicken breasts and cooked them for 4 hrs on low, then left on warm while I prepared my sides. I took the chicken out and shredded it with two forks and then put it back in the sauce in the crockpot. Served with baked potatoes and coleslaw and it was a super quick and easy meal.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2004
Enjoyed this appetizer very much. Very quick and easy to put together. Topped with shredded parmesan instead of mozz. Parm. doesn't get hard as the dish cools. Served this with baked pita chips brushed with olive oil, garlic salt and parmesan. May try marinated artichokes next time for bolder flavor. Thanks for the great recipe!

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Very good, as is. If you're using spaghetti sauce from a jar in place of the original ingredients you're missing out. It really doesn't take that much longer to open and dump the cans of tomato paste and tomatoes and throw in the spices. SO much better than a jarred sauce imo. Also no issues here with the eggs scrambling. Just strain your pasta, add butter in first and stir, then parmesan and stir, then gradually add the eggs in a little at a time stirring, quickly. I think all the stirring with each addition cools the pasta enough to temper ok. Such a nice baked spaghetti. Thanks OP!

Great Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
Very good! Have made it twice and the second time I used a can of pumpkin pie filling that already has the sugar and spices and it was just as good if not better. Just omit the sugar and spices.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Loved this frosting on the Sugar Cookie Cutouts from this website. It makes a ton, so I halfed the amount and had enough to ice 3 dozen cookies. I also used half vanilla and half almond extract as a personal preference.

Slow Cooker Escalloped Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
This meal reminded me of Thanksgiving! It was delicious. I used 4 large frozen chicken breasts and placed them into the bottom of the crock pot. Cubed some french bread and placed on top of chicken. Then made the soup mixture using 2 cups of chicken broth for liquid. I cut the butter to 3/4 cup, but would do 1/2 cup next time. The stuffing came out a little too wet, but it was wonderful over mashed potatoes! After refridgerating and reheating it was firmed up and the perfect consistency. It is even better the next day!
