Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Love this recipe...I just made them! They are just as light and fluffy as regular buttermilk but they have a better flavor! We used to go out to a large chain breakfast resturant for pancakes but I think we'll save our money from now on and make these instead...much tastier and healthier!

Maple Pecan Shortbread Squares

These are great! I made them exactly to the recipe using real organic maple syrup and light brown sugar. They were very tasty with a wonderful maple flavor. Wouldn't change a thing! Thank you :)

Earthquake Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
These were great! I made mine with butter pecan cake mix ( my favorite!) and they were delicious...a great way to make/serve 'cake'. I topped mine with a dollop of buttercream icing and a sugared pecan to dress them up and make them more of a dessert. I do suggest that you watch them very closely while baking! For me, 9min was the magic time. At 8min they were a little under done and flattened out as they cooled and at 10min the bottoms burnt, so I scraped of the bottom and they still tasted fine. Also, the recipe didn't say to grease the pan and my first batch stuck to the bottom, so I suggest you lightly spray your sheet with baking spray.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This cake is wonderful!!! It is very velvety yet still light. It has a nice rich chocolatey fudge flavor to it. I took the advice of another reviewer and used strong brewed coffee instead of water and seperated the eggs and beat the egg whites seperately with about 1/4 cup of the sugar. I will make this cake again...probably next week for a party :) Thank you! UPDATE: I made this again with the three layers and made a double batch of Chocolate Butter-Creme Frosting found on this site between the layers and One Minute Chocolate Icing, also found on this site, on the outside (gives it a wonderful chocolate glossy coating that helps seal in the moisture). To me it was the perfect combo of sweetness and rich fudgy chocolate!

Kid Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
Great muffins...really moist and tasty! I made them as mini muffins for my 16 month old and he ate 3 of them as soon as they came out of the oven and it wasn't even meal time :) I only made a few small changes: I used healthy oil instead of butter, I chopped up apricots(without soaking) instead of using raisins, I used 2 tablespoons of flax, and finally I only used 1/4 cup of brown sugar and they were plenty sweet! Thank you for such a great recipe. Next time I think i'll add some pecans and blueberries.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
I loved this punch and so did my guests! As others have mentioned I used a lot less sugar, I actually only used 1/2 cup and next time I may leave it out all together. I can't imagine how sweet it would be if I used 2 1/2 cups since this was plenty sweet and I like sweet stuff :) I served it with white wine for those who wanted some alcohol I filled their glass 1/4 full with wine and then filled it with punch. Great recipe thanks!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
These are great cookies! Really soft with a nice pumpkin flavor and not too much spice. Take note of the amoount it makes...6 dozen! They aren't as much like oatmeal cookies as I thought they would be, I found it was almost unnoticable.

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2013
Great muffin, very moist and tasty! I make them for my 17 month old and he loves them! The only changes I make to make them a little more healthy is I only use olny 1/4 cup sugar, I use whole wheat flour, I use oil instead of butter, and I add 2Tbl ground flax seed.

Milky Way® Cupcake Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
Made this icing yesterday to go on top of brownie vanilla cupcakes found here on AR and they were a big hit among all ages from 30 to 60. It is really thick sticky, more of a 'topping' than an 'icing', but the taste is great! I used reg Milky Way and Caramel Milky Way together. I suggest when you are adding the icing sugar is that you sift it to ensure it is smooth and lump free! After it was made, I put it in a piping bag and put it in the fridge to cool so it would be a little thicker and easier to pipe onto the cupcakes.

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
I LOVE this salad! I have made it several times for family and parties and everyone loves it. I often make a big batch and we eat it throughout the week. The 'dressing' mixture has the perfect flavor and I don't change a thing! And as others have said, it tastes even better the next day since the herbs have a chance to release their flavor. That's why I gave this recipe 5 stars. When I make it, I mix together all the herbs and liquid and add the feta and very finely diced (I use the slap chop :) olives(usually green pimiento) and red onion(instead of the green). Then I add bell peppers, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and cooked rotini. That's it! Try it and play with what you add :)

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
I'm not exactly a buffalo wing connoisseur but this is a great recipe! They are very tasty and not too hot. You can adjust the heat by adding less or more hot sauce. I use Franks! I like them mild so I use a little less and substitute with BBQ sauce...just adds a little extra flavor.

Smokin' Jack BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
This is a great BBQ sauce! I don't think I will ever buy it again, just make it at home with organic ingredients :) I don't even boil it and it tastes amazing as soon as it is mixed together! I did boil it the first time but it was too long ago for me to compare the taste. So if you don't have time, just mix the ingredients together and you will be happy! Thanks for the great recipe ;)

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 7, 2014
This was great and so easy! It is great as is but I leave out the butter and usually add a veg like broccoli. It also works great with rice instead of the noodles. Thank you!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
WOW!!! I just took these out of the oven and I am impressed! These are the prettiest peanut butter OR chocolate chip OR oatmeal cookies I have ever made or maybe even seen :) They are perfectly mounded (I used a cookie scoop) and not flat at all! They are nice and 'fluffy' and taste wonderful. I will never make a regular peanut butter cookie again! I made them exactly as the recipe but used crunchy peanut butter and mini chocolate chips. The only question I have is...why is peanut butter not in the name?? They should be called Outrageous Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Lime Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
I gave these 5 stars because this recipe is delish and even though I made a few small changes, the origional recipe would be still be great! I didn't put the glaze on top, just a dusting of powered sugar and they were great. However, there are a few things I would change in the recipe the next time I make these. First, I did use butter instead shortening because I like the flavor in a shortbread crust much more and will do so next time also. Second, I didn't like the ratio of crust to filling, about 50/50. Next time I will double the filling. Third, I increased the amount of zest a little to about 1 tablespoon because that was how much I got from one lime and wanted to use it all. I did only use the 1/3 cup of lime juice as the recipe calls for and overall I thought the lime flavor was great. (Other reviewers suggested to use more since the flavor wasn't strong enough.) I really liked these and will make them again for sure! Thanks

Citrus Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2012
These are wonderful! They were zesty, fuity with a wonderful texture. I only made two small changes: As another reviewer, I only used 1 cup of chopped cranberries which we found to be plenty! Also, I never had any almond extract so I decided to add 1/4 cup of toasted crushed almond slices. I am not a hugh fan of almond extact but using the real toasted almonds was amazing and really made a difference. Since it said to divide the dough into two logs I decided to add the almonds (1/8 cup for half the recipe) to one log and omit them in the other to test the difference. The cookies without the almonds tasted more fruity...you could really taste the orange and cranberry. The almonds added a more comlex and interesting flavor where all the flavors came through and none were overpowering. We liked both but the cookies with the almonds were our favorite! To toast the almonds: spread sliced almonds on a baking sheet and bake in a 375 deg oven for 3-5min until they look lightly browned. Let cool and crush.

Shrimp Salsa

This is sooo good! I've made it several times and tastes great as is or with green onion instead of red and I also love to add red, yellow, or orange bell pepper.

Berry Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
I just made these and they are delish! I did make a few changes: I never had any reg sugar so I used brown sugar (which I like more with oatmeal anyways). I also never had blueberries so I used frozen raspberries (which I like more also :) to Finally, I omitted the topping to make them a little healthier and they were still plenty sweet! I will def make these again and probably with my substitutions :)
