Passion Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
Oh my these were delicious and super easy to prepare. I followed the recipe exactly except I used reduced fat peanut butter and milk chocolate chips rather than the semisweet since it was what I had on hand. They are so good, especially if you warm them up a little to make the gooey. They were a huge hit.

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This was fantastic. The meat came out sooo tender it was ridiculous. I followed some recommendations to substitute beef broth for a cup of wine but I think that is a mistake. I think it would be better as is stated in the recipe. Either way it was a hit with my family!

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
This recipe was awesome. I made it for Christmas dinner and everyone raved about it. I followed the ingredients to a T, it was spot on. I followed other reviewers advice by cooking it for 12 minutes at 460 degrees, then 8 minutes at 400 degrees, and finally 325 for about 17 minutes per pound. Pulled it out when the meat thermometer registered 135 and let it sit for about 20-25 minutes. It was a perfect medium throughout the entire roast.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
This was awesome! I just finished eating it and had to rate it, it was so good. I omitted the celery and forgot to mince an onion so I just added some onion powder instead. I covered the veggies with clam juice rather than water for some more flavor. Other then that I followed the recipe as stated. It was very thick but I like it that way so I didn't thin it out. This was definitely better than a lot of restaurants I've had clam chowder at and super simple to make.

Spanish Flan

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
I never had flan before, so I don't have anything to base the after-product against, but it was delicious! The only thing I did differently was increase the eggs to 4 and use a water bath to bake it in. It was so simple and delicious. I didn't have problems with the caramel, but I have made dozens of batches for Christmas candy. It took me about 20 minutes to melt the dry sugar but once the sugar wasn't lumpy it was the perfect coppery-color you want. I'll definitely be making this again.

Taco Seasoning

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
Such a great recipe and super easy. Definitely better than buying the stuff from the store. I love that there isn't any salt in the recipe since so often there is a ton in the store bought stuff, and this recipe proves you don't need it.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
This was great! I'm not usually a carrot cake person but some family members do like it so I decided to make it for Easter. I followed it pretty much to a T except I omitted the raisins for personal preference. I also used 2 9" round pans and baked for only 30 minutes. It came out so moist, and it was super easy to make. I made a cream cheese frosting with vanilla and almond extract that really complemented the cake. This didn't last long!

Angel Lush

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
This is super easy and super yummy! I did it a little different but didn't really change much. Instead of a cup of cool whip I used a whole small container. I cubed 2 small packages of angel food cake and put them in a Rubbermaid container. I put the cool whip/pudding/pineapple mixture on top and topped with strawberries. It was such a nice light dessert for Easter.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
Yum, these were super simple and really quick to make. I followed the directions exactly and used sour cream and guacamole for dipping. Will definitely be making these again. I also put in some chicken in my hubby's since he likes to have his meat at each meal.

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2013
This recipe was awesome and super simple. The only things I did differently was poke holes in the cake right when it got out of the oven and I poured the caramel and condensed milk right onto the cake without mixing them together on the stove (why create more dirty dishes?). Took it to a family reunion, it was the only dessert touched. Definitely will make again!

Cheese and Bacon Potato Rounds

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
These are very addicting and nice alternative to potato skins. I skipped the butter part, didn't think it added much other than calories. These are also very good cold the morning after.

Kielbasa with Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
This is one of my new favorite dishes. It is super easy to prepare and I don't really change much in the recipe. The only big change is that I use crushed tomatoes instead of stewed (the BF prefers the sauce more saucier than chunky). Other than that I usually up the cayenne pepper because we like things a little bit hotter. Excellent recipe, thanks for a great new way to use up kielbasa!

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
These are wonderful. I will never buy the canned mix again! I did change up the amounts of the ingredients for personal tastes but I kept all of them in there. This also freezes well, which is a plus wince it makes so much.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
These are absolutely delicious and super easy to make. Once I had all of the dough ingredients mixed together, I put it in the freezer to make it easier to form the balls. Their consistency is close to a brownie, which my family loved. These did not last long!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
These are wonderful. The only thing I changed was using a chocolate cake mix. The cookie dough tasted wonderful, one of the best I've had. I used the cookie dough recipe for actual cookies and they tasted awesome. My family ate these up, will definitely make again.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
These are super simple and always a big hit. The only thing I will mention is that they need to be kept cool otherwise they start to melt. They usually go so fast at the functions I make them for that it never really is a problem for me. Definitely recommend!

Scotcharoos

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
These remind me of my childhood! I followed Karionly's Helpful Review and they turned out great. Will definitely be making these again. They are a new favorite of my nephews.

Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
These are fantastic. I made them for my birthday treat at work and they were gone in a day. I also like to make them and keep them at home for whenever I have a sweet tooth craving. Love these!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
This dish is simple comfort food. I followed the directions exactly as stated and it turned out great. I loved the shredded parm on top, it gave it a nice crunchy texture. Definitely recommend.

Slow Cooker Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
This is wonderful. My sister-in-law always made this recipe. I never really measure anything and go by taste when adding 1000 island dressing. I also make my own dressing, which I think tastes way better than store bought. This dip is always the first to go at a potluck or party.
