No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
Ridiculously easy and ridiculously good! Whipped these up for fun one night when I had a sweet tooth craving. Barely took any time to make...or to eat! Next time, might spread all the mix out on a cookie sheet, let cool, and cut or break into pieces. Yum!

Simple Savory Quinoa

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
I didn't realize I didn't have onions or garlic until I started cooking (of course!), nor the lime, but it turned out delicious anyway! Hubby and I both loved it and I'll absolutely make it again. I'm curious to see what the lime does to the taste, and I can see how garlic and onion would give the dish a more well-rounded flavor. Quite yummy! I'm happy to have another way to prepare quinoa!

Bacon Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies With Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
These are SO easy to make and absolutely delicious!! I used most a jar of bacon bits because I was being lazy about the bacon. While the cookies turned out very, very good, in retrospect I think cooking and dicing bacon would lend a far more bacon flavor to the cookies, so I'll do this next time. And, oh yes, there WILL be a next time!!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
Made exactly as stated and it was fantastic! Hubby knew there was quinoa in it, but said it didn't taste any different than regular turkey meatloaf. Only 7 WW Points+ per serving, too! I wouldn't use the glaze next time, though, as it was a little too sweet for our tastes. Delicious!

Risotto with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Fantastic! I'll absolutely make this again! I used 2x the chicken broth, as recommended by other reviewers. I did not use the oregano, basil, salt, or pepper, and it was still amazing! Completely forgot the cheese, too, and didn't miss it. A rich roasted garlic flavor throughout, the family scarfed it up!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
Meh, don't know what happened since I followed directions exactly, but pot roast didn't taste like anything special and wasn't moist, veggies were rather firm, almost hard, and the "gravy" was just watery juice. Leftovers the next day were even worse. Next time, I'll try others' suggestions and add a can of cream of something soup.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Fantastic! Doubled up the recipe for Christmas morning breakfast. Cooked the night before, then microwaved individual slices the next morning. Used a 9x13 pan and was concerned because the egg mix only came halfway up the bread cubes, but everyone loved it! Some added syrup, some ate as is, EVERYONE LOVED! Even made with rye bread due to local Christmas Eve bread shortage and it was still devoured!! I know what I'm bringing to Christmas next year!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Oh. My. God. DELICIOUS!!! I made this for dinner as a trial run for Christmas morning and it was amazing (and amazingly easy)!!! I used 1 lb. turkey bacon instead of regular bacon; there was less bacony flavor, as expected, but it was still yummy! I used 1 large onion; I'd halve that next time as the dish was very oniony, which might not appeal to some. I baked it for 45 minutes as it was still "wet" at 30 and 35. It was even better the 2nd day and made for a yummy breakfast. I made it into 8 servings; 12 seemed too small, unless there were a few side dishes. Best of all, LiveStrong's recipe builder puts this at 447 calories per serving (at 8 servings, with turkey bacon). Yummy and healthy; yay! **** 12/25/10: UPDATE. Made 2 of these for Christmas, one with bacon, one with chopped up Italian sweet sausage. Christmas Eve local hash brown shortage forced a change to Southern style hash browns (cubed potatoes) and chopped up tater tots. Used 2 cups tots and 2 cups hash browns in lieu of 4 cups shredded hash browns; liked the outcome better!!! LOTS of compliments and requests for a repeat performance. :)

Eggnog Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
YUMMY! I'll need to make another batch to give away because hubby and I keep eating these! Another review suggested a glaze of 1 cup confectioners sugar with 2 Tbsp. eggnog (we used 3); this was a nice finishing touch to the cookie, especially with nutmeg sprinkled over the glaze. I got 24 cookies out of this recipe and, since they didn't spread much while baking, will definitely make them smaller and flatter next time. And there WILL be a next time - did I say yum?

Magic Cookie Bars from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Meh. Dad loved these, hubby and I were less than thrilled. To be fair, we subbed peanuts for walnuts and peanut butter chips for chocolate (though this was a great switch if you like PB!). The issue was the crust, just bleah, no flavor. Next time, I'll try making my own graham cracker crumbs instead of using boxed ones, maybe get more flavor and texture.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
DELICIOUS! The only change I'd make next time is to make the cookies 1/2 the size recommended. Making 24 cookies as the recipe says (to make 12 sandwiches) yielded 4 inch cookies. They are yummy, but so peanut butter rich that more than one at a time is too much, so smaller cookies would allow someone to have 2 and be happy! Plus, they'll go further! Chunky PB in the dough was a nice suggestion. We will DEFINITELY be making these again.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Next time I make this, I might use 2 boxes of mix to make 3 thick layers as mine turned out really thin. Or I'd leave the 3 thin layers in the oven for 1/2 the recommended time on the box as they were fairly dry. I also agree with all of the suggestions about increasing the liquid; I quadrupled it, and still wish I'd had more. And the "do it yourself" mascarpone? Wonderful! Tasted fantastic and was SO inexpensive. This cake is DEFINITELY staying in my repertoire!
