All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2002
I halved the recipe to see it I would like it. It was great. My crock pot was almost full with half of the recipe. I could not have made a full recipe. I cut the sugar down by half as others had suggested. Next time I'm going to try putting it on right before bed and letting it cook overnight. I used Jonathan apples. I saw on another site that said Jonathan, Golden Delicious, and Macintosh apples were good choices for apple butter.

Sweet Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
Personally, I don't like these. They are really sweet and I can't seem to get over how much fat are in these (154 g total). However, most people do like them. That's why I gave it 4 stars. I've made it in bundles, which is a very pretty way to make it. If you want an easier way, just place the green beans in the bottom of a baking dish, cut the bacon into pieces and place over the top of the beans, drizzle with brown sugar and butter sauce, and sprinkle with garlic salt. You get the same flavor with less work.

Apple Butter Spice Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2002
Very moist, delicious cake. Would make a good breakfast cake. I made mine in a bundt pan and layered with 1/2 crumb mixture, 1/2 batter, crumb, batter. Scrumptious!! I also made the 'All Day Apple Butter' recipe from this site and used it in this recipe.

Candy Bar Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2002
Everyone said how great this fudge was. The only reason I didn't give it 5* is because I found the caramel and peanuts hard to spread on and ended up having to do it with my fingers. I would make it again for special occasions. I added only half of the peanuts and thought it was plenty. Next time I'm going to coarsely chop the peanuts so it will be easier to cut.

Oven Barbecued Beef Brisket I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2002
Terrific tasting brisket and very tender. After slicing, I tasted the brisket and it was delicious. I kept a few slices out for my daughter who doesn't like BBQ and unfortunatly put the BBQ on the rest. My problem was that I bought a new kind of BBQ sauce (Jack Daniels)and it was terrible. Will be making again with my standard BBQ sauce.

Mom's Island Treasures

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
Made it exactly like the recipe stated. These have too much butter. This is basically a chocolate chip cookie with coconut and pecans added. After making the dough I added the chocolate chips like the recipe stated and then halved the dough. My kids don't care for coconut and pecans so I baked the first half as just chocolate chip cookies. These came out very flat and greasy like the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag. With the other half of the dough I added half the coconut and pecans called for. This made the cookies true to the original recipe. These came out with some texture and not nearly as flat, but still a little too greasy for me. I definitely like the addition of the coconut and pecans. With a little of the dough left I added some craisins. Mmmm...yummy. The craisins added a nice touch. I would definitely add coconut and pecans to another chocolate chip cookie recipe, but this wasn't the one as written. It was a good idea though so I give it 4 stars because the concept is good.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
After making this twice already, the third time I added 1 tsp. of sugar. It was edible, but still not good. Maybe my family just doesn't like french toast. I made this with wheat bread which the recipe states can be used. Perhaps that was the problem.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
Delicious!! I couldn't find sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil so I bought them,poured olive oil over them, and let them sit overnight. It was so good!! I toasted the bread and and let my guests dip their own tomato mixture on top themselves, served cold....like Olive Garden's. Excellent.

Easy Minute Steaks

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2004
I've made this many times now. I love the ease! I rated this 5* before just like it is, but now I only make it with adding a can of cream of mushroom soup with the French onion. Delicious. I also wanted to say that I made it in the crock pot and cooked it for 6 hours and it was even better. The meat was so tender! Try putting in on before work for an easy dinner.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
Awesome! Just awesome! I was hesitate to try a macaroon thinking they would come out too dry. Not the case! These are so yummy; just like popping a small piece of coconut cream pie into your mouth. I used a small cookie scoop and it made 55 cookies. Baked them for 12 minutes. While I loved eating them straight from the oven, they are still fresh and chewy 2 days later.

Best Bruschetta Ever

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
We really liked this for a quick and easy Bruschetta. My daughter loves Bruschetta so I will use this recipe at home. Don't think I would take it to a party or anything though. It doesn't look that pretty with all the cheese in it.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
All my guests raved over these. I will make these again and again. Very easy. I cut mine into strips to serve more people. Also, placed crumb mixture in a ziplock and shook the chicken to coat it. Worked great.

Cherry Chocolate Nut Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
Yummy. Made them just like the recipe states, except had to use milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. It's a nice fluffy cookie. The cherry flavor isn't overpowering either. The hardest part is chopping the cherries. My food chopper pulverized them, so I had to resort to a knife. I'll make them again.

Easy Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
Can't get much easier than this and it tastes great too! I followed the recipe exactly except for using frozen tilapia. Just popped the frozen tilapia and frozen veggies in the oven. Had to add about 10 minutes cooking time. It worked out well with the frozen veggies because they were done at the same time. It also looked very pretty and I liked that it was healthy.

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
Made this for lunch. I followed the recipe exactly. This is SO awesome. I'm still salivating over this chicken salad. My daughter ended up picking the craisins out because she thought it was too sweet. The rest of us thought it was delicious. Wouldn't hesitate serving it to guests.

Tater Tot Casserole III

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
When I said, "Tater Tot Casserole," my family went, "ick." However, we all liked it. Made it just like the recipe said except I layered cheese on half to see if I would like it better with or without. I liked it without, my husband liked it with, and my kids liked it either way. I'll make it the same way next time. It was quick and easy!

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
This was delicious!! The only problem I had was that all the company ate all MY meat and I didn't have any left for the next day. Seriously, I made twice what I needed and people would come back for seconds and thirds for just the meat. We had these as fajitas. Try it, you will like it.

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
I got rave reviews on this dip. It was very, very good and looked pretty as well. I would not make it again though because of the expense. It cost right at $20 to make. It does make a lot of dip. You could easily cut it in half and have plenty.

Big-Batch Butterscotch Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I was looking for a different cookie recipe and found it. This recipe makes WAY too many cookies. Recalculate the servings to either 40 or 80 servings. This way the egg will come out to either 1 or 2 depending on the size of batch. I made the first half exactly like the recipe. The other half of the dough I added pecans and butterscotch chips. I preferred the taste with the added ingredients which is why I gave the original recipe 4 stars.
