Award Winning Rainbow Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
much better and much easier than rainbow cookies made with almond paste. These are super moist, like little individual cakes. I spray the bottom of each pan with Pam cooking spray, they never stick and slide out easily. It's much easier to make if you have 3 non stick pans, but since they only bake for 8 minutes, you can do each separately. As one color comes out of the over, spread the warm preserves on to it and pop the next color in the over. Be warned, people will swear you bought these at a bakery, they look so beautiful and taste even better!

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
Here is another 5 star review for this fantastic recipe. I used a number of the reviews recommendations: square pretzels, Dove chocolates filled with caramel, toasted the pecans after tossing them in a little butter. I also drizzled a little semi-sweet chocolate on top for a beautiful finishing touch. My husband took these to a New Year's Eve party and even though there was too much food and tons of left overs, every one of these babies got eaten!! There are the perfect bite size treat.....sweet, salty, chocolate....perfection! Thanks for a great and easy recipe!

Apple Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I would have given these a 3 but my husbands co-workers loved them so I bumped them up to a 4. I definitely agree with the other reviewers....these need cinnamon! Also, they would have been better if I had tossed the apples with the water/sugar then just poured off. All and all, it was a good recipe, just not fantastic.

Sesame Parmesan Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
The flavor was good but these were mushy and had a horrible texture. The cooking time is way off. Would not make again.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
I just returned from a PTA sponsored breakfast for the teacher's because today is national teacher's day and I was asked to help out and make a quiche. I usually do not make something to bring somewhere without having made it before but I figured with all the positive reviews of this quiche, I couldn't go wrong. This is a TEN star recipe. There were five quiches at the teacher breakfast and this one was gone in 15 minutes. Teachers were asking me for the recipe! I only used half a stick of butter and half the package of spinach, I just feel that the whole 10 oz package of spinach is too much. Other than those minor changes, I followed the recipe exactly. The garlic-herb feta gives it a wonderful flavor. I have also made the crustles spinach quiche on this website and this one is really much, much tastier and delicious. I can't want to make it again. Thanks for a superb recipe!!

Marshmallow Delights

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
These are so easy and so delicious! Someone described them as a cinammon roll with the icing baked into the inside and I think that is just a perfect description. Don't forget to really pinch all the seams/ends closed; otherwise you will find the marshmallow will leak out. Make sure you really, really PAM the muffin tins or they will stick like glue. And finally, dipping the crescent roll in butter/cinammon sugar gives them a sweet, yummy coating. I brought these in to work and they were a huge, huge hit. Everyone loved them.

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
I thought I made great mashed potatoes until I tasted these!!! LOL. Huge hit at Thanksgiving. Creamy, dreamy, delicious. Who would have thought that warming half and half would make such a difference but it did. Thanks for this great recipe.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Oh my gosh was this great!!! I baked my sweet potatoes in the oven (I used 5 medium size) and then squeezed the guts out. I then added my butter and sugar.....just taste until it is the desired sweetness. I think I used 1/3 cup of sugar and they were perfect. My brother-in-law has two giant servings of this Thanksgiving. It is absolutely delicious and the topping is orgasmic!

Sunshine Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This is one of our all time favorite recipes for breakfast. I remember making this when I was a girl scout 30 years ago. You really have to scroll through all the reviews and look at all the unique names families have given to this recipe. When my niece was a little girl (she's now 22) she named this recipe "Egg in the eye of Toast" and we've been calling it that ever since! Your kids will love this breakfast, I know my 8 year old son does.

Thousand Island Dressing II

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
We had Reuben sandwiches last night and I realized that I forgot to tell me husband to pick up Thousand Island Dressing. I headed right over to my laptop and checked allrecipes. What a fantastic and easy recipe. And delicious too! I will never buy bottled thousand island again; our sandwiches were delish!

Basic Microwave Risotto

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
Unbelievable! This is a superb, restaurant quality dish. I followed alot of the reviewers recommendations~~>I added a shallots and mushrooms that I browned in butter at the point where I added the white wine. I also used chicken stock (Emeril's brand that they sell in the supermarket). The result was delicious, creamy. I really couldn't stop eating this! I can't wait to make it again. One reviewer said she served this with chicken marsala so I think I will try that next time! Thank you for a fabulous 10 STAR recipe!!!

Healthy Garden Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
I just LOVED this salad and so did my husband. I purchased the Edamame frozen at Trader Joe's. The dressing is delicious too. It just tastes so fresh and good for you! Perfect summer salad/side dish with your fresh garden tomatoes.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
I'm giving this 5 stars because I'm sure I would have loved it if I had followed the recipe exactly. I love sweet coleslaw and I chose this recipe because one of the reviewers said it reminded her of Kentucky Fried Chicken's cole slaw which I adore. I made the mistake of reducing the sugar that another reviewer suggested. Had I followed at the recipe as written, it would have been perfect. I personally did not really care for the onion flavor; my husband loved it. I would suggest tasting it before you add the onion; if you love it as is, don't add onion. I don't think you need it.

Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
Absolutley delicious summertime meal! I have always had a phobia of using uncooked, fresh tomatoes in a sauce but I've been converted! lol My husband loves red onions and Italian dressing so I decided to give this recipe a try. I used four beefsteak tomatoes (my plum romas were not ripe yet) that I picked from my garden and I seeded and diced them. Then I picked a big handful of basil and chopped that up. I added 1/2 cup of Good Seasons Salad dsg ( that I had made with balsamic vinegar...I noted that alot of recipes for fresh tomato sauce add balsamic vinegar so that is how I incorporated it into this one). Finally, I used angel hair because that is what I had. It is just an explosion of freshness and summer in your mouth when you eat this. I highly recommend!

Baby BLT

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
I really wanted to be thrilled with this recipe because I had an abundance of cherry tomatoes from my garden. Unfortunately, I ended up being disappointed. I had read ALL the reviews and followed all the helpful advice. I salted the tomatoes, I drained them on paper towels. This little appetizers still just tasted very greasy/fatty to me. Even my husband said that there was too much filling and not enough of a tomato taste. And these were incredibly labor intensive and time consuming. I will be making and reviewing the BLT dip; hopefully I will have better luck with that appetizer.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
I first tasted these at a cookie exchange party I attended. They couldn't be easier to make or more yummy to eat. I made them following the directions on the brownie box. I also made them in a mini muffin tin. One perfect little bite size treat to pop in your mouth!!

Insalata Caprese II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
The perfect summer salad when you have home grown beefsteak tomatoes. I also always add roasted red peppers (the kind you buy in a jar in the supermarket) and a little balsamic vinegar. Delicious!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
I have made this close to 10 times and I'm finally reviewing it. We have a group of friends/kids that get together and one of us always makes this dessert. It is fondly known as "CRACK" because it is so addictive, lol. It is a cross between a cookie and a candy and it is just great! I like it because you can just take a small piece to satisfy a sweet tooth or keep munching. I only make it with light brown sugar and I have used both almonds and pecans as the nuts. Both are great. Ialso line the cookie sheet with Reynolds Wrap no stick foil.

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
Absolutley fantastic and that is coming from a fan of traditional buttercream icing. I thought the taste of this was delicious and even better was the texture. It's like a thicker, stiffer whpped cream. Not as pudding tasting as bavarian cream but not as thin as a whipped cream icing. Perfect for a strawberry shortcake. I used it on the Coconut Cream Cake I from this website and the taste was to die for. My husband brought that cake with this frosting into work and every co-worker asked for the recipe. And the fact that it takes about 2 minutes to make makes it a 10 star recipe in my book. Another reviewer commented that this is "artificial tasting." Let's be honest, if you like cool whip you will LOVE this recipe. If you are expected this to taste like real heavy whipped cream, you are being unrealistic. I love cool whip; it's light, it's not as fattening and this frosting really holds it's shape well. Not runny at all.
