Beef Tips

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
This was absolutely delicious. I used low sodium soy sauce and left out the 1t salt, and it wasn't salty until I added the gravy packet. I did what others suggested and didn't add the 1c water with the packet because there was alot of juice from the meat, but I'm sure omitting it is what made it taste so salty. Next time I will add the water and simply thicken it up with some cornstarch. I have to give this 5 stars because if I would have followed the recipe I think it would have come out just fine. Thanks for a great recipe denisef!

Booyah Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
This is packed full of flavor. Really good with crusty french bread. The only thing I changed based on personal preference was I only used 1/4 t crushed red pepper. For our taste that was plenty of heat. I think the only thing I might change next time is to use fresh rosemary. With the dried, I occasionally felt like I was chewing on a splinter of wood.

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This is really good. Very light but moist. Only change I made, which I won't do again, was to use 1 1/2x's the topping. Reading the ingredient amounts it didn't seem like it would be enough, but adding more made it too sweet for us. Because of this change I would rate it a 4, but since I know next time I make it with the exact amount it will be a 5, so that is my true rating.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I am not a brownie lover but my husband is so I made these for him. Per other reviews, I only used 1 cup of flour because I know he likes more of a dense brownie, and he said they were very good but still too cakey. I thought they were fine, but I could see if you added the additional 1/2 cup they would be. So 4 stars for him, and 5 for me. They are so easy to make, and I always have all of the ingredients on hand.

K-Dub's Alfredo Ravioli Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Very good, very simple to make, and very rich! I definitely wouldn't make this on a regular basis. Minor changes I would make are to reduce the amount of italian seasoning a bit. I would also salt/pepper the chicken instead of the entire dish. And last but not least I would change the type of ravioli. I like cheese raviolis but don't love them, but this recipe is versatile so you could use just about any type.

Steak House Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Yum yum yum! These were delicious! The only adjustment I made based on personal taste was to cut down to 2 cloves of garlic, but I think next time I will up it to 3 and see how we like it. I typically don't use alot of salt but I think I could have used a little more here so I added some afterwards. That's easy to change for next time. And there will be a next time!

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
This was really flavorful! I only had chicken tenders so I used those, and I threw them on the BBQ instead of using the broiler. So simple to make...just put them in the marinade in the morning and grill them when you get home. If you know what's in the marinade then yes, it does taste like Ranch, but at the same time, the vinegar changes the flavor so if you didn't know what was in it you might not figure it out. But who cares, it was good! Will definitely make again!

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
This is the best macaroni salad I have ever eaten. I have made it several times now but somehow keep forgetting to rate it! The thing I love the best about this recipe is that it is not swimming in mayo. Too many macaroni/potato salads are and I don't care for them at all. The only thing I change is to cut down on the sugar a bit. It's fine with the full amount but just a little too sweet for my taste. Also, it tastes even better if you make it the day before you plan on serving it. So yummy!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
Soooo good! The only change I made was to use half and half instead of cream to save on calories. It would have been richer with the cream, but honestly this soup tasted great even before I added the half and half so you could vary the recipe several ways.

Milky Way® Cupcake Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I'm not a frosting lover...I'd rather eat cake plain than frosted but can't do that when baking for others. This frosting is so sweet but soooo good! I paired it with the Simple White Cake recipe from this site and it was the perfect balance because the cake wasn't too sweet. I was able to frost 22 cupcakes with one batch of frosting, probably because I frosted them with a knife and wasn't too generous with it because it was so sweet. Make sure that your cupcakes are cooled as well as the frosting. So good, and so easy to make!

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
These are delicious! I made exactly has written except that I didn't have whole chicken breasts, only chicken tenders so I used them instead (I didn't use toothpicks) but cooked for the same amount of time as it called for. I made the Garlic Spread recipe from AR for the filling since I couldn't find it at the store. That is yummy too! Both recipes are so easy to make and I will definitely be making them again.

Garlic Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
This is yummy! I originally made it for the recipe on AR for Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups, but the leftovers will have no problem being used up on various things. I made it exactly as written and it's the perfect balance of flavors to me, but for an extra throw in another clove or two of garlic!

Banana Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
I can't rate the cake itself because I'm giving it to my parents, but I can tell you that it was easy to make, it smells wonderful and it looks beautiful in the pan! I used a 7x11 pan so it is a little thicker and I also added an extra banana and the last egg I had in the refrigerator to use it up. I did taste the frosting and it's sweet, but isn't frosting supposed to be? But since I'm not a frosting lover I only used about 1/2 of it. It has wonderful banana flavor though. I am going to let a batch of bananas turn this weekend so that I can make it again, this time for us, and will come back to rate the cake!

Strawberry Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
I got this recipe from a friend and have made it several times now over the years and it's always a hit. It's a tad sweet, but you are in control when it comes to how much you dip. My favorite fruit to dip is strawberries, but I have used several different types of fruit.

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
This was really good! The only thing I did to alter the recipe was to use fresh roma tomatoes instead of canned tomatoes. The only other change I might make is to leave off the chips until the dish comes out of the oven. They were a little chewy, not crunchy, and the cheese made them stick together so it was hard to get the taste of them in every bite. 3/11/12 - UPDATE: I have made this several times now and each time I have used roma tomatoes, but I had a can of diced tomatoes that I wanted to use before it went bad so I used them (like the recipe calls for), and I must say that this dish comes out even better with them. I was surprised...I like to use fresh whenever possible, but something about the canned made it so much better so I will make it this way from now on.

Hot Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Yum yum yum yum yum! I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of using the mini pepperonis instead of buying the big ones and chopping them up. As other reviewers recommended, I cooked the pepperoni in paper towels in the microwave, on low, for a total of about 3 minutes to get most of the grease out of them. I sliced baguettes thin, then cut them in half diagonally and then toasted them in the oven for 6 minutes. They had just the right texture...a little soft on the inside but hard enough on the outside to hold up to dipping/scooping. This recipe is so simple! I will definitely be making it again. 1/1/12 - Went camping for New Year's and made this as a dish to share and it was a hit! Gotta love simple, delicious dishes!

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
These are delicious and so easy to make! The only change I made per other reviews was to increase the cinnamon to 1 teaspoon. I buttered my cookie sheet really well and stirred the nuts every 15 minutes and had no problems with either sticking or burning. I used them on the Eat Michigan Salad from this site but they are yummy just to munch on!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
Oh my WORD were these ever good! I made cupcakes. I love that they are dense and not too sweet. The only thing I did per other reviews was to add a little more milk. I just eyeballed it but it was probably close to an additional 1/4 cup. They tasted great the night I made them but were even better the next day. I frosted them with the Milky Way Cupcake Frosting recipe from this site and they were awesome!

Caramelized Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Finger licking good! I only used about 1 1/2 T of peanut butter and the flavor was still dominant so I added a little more soy sauce and that helped. It also wouldn't thicken up for me very much so I took the juices out of the pan, added a little cornstarch and cook it til it thickened, then threw it back in the pan with the wings and cranked up the heat until it reduced a bit. When I took them out of the pan the sauce stuck pretty well. The meat is so tender and has great flavor!

Boardwalk Quality Maple Walnut Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This stuff rocks! It's so smooth and creamy. The only thing I did differently is to add an extra small splash of the extract. It probably would have been fine as written but I love maple flavor so I added more for my personal taste. I also toasted the walnuts for a few minutes in the oven as another reviewer suggested. I am now going to take this same recipe and use milk chocolate chips and vanilla extract to make chocolate fudge too!
