Cinnabun Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Awesome cookie! It does take a long time but the end result is so worth it. I froze half the dough while it was rolled up and it freezes well. I made the suggested glaze too and it was GREAT! I will make this again and again. Thank you!

JELL-O® Pastel Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
I really like these! They were a lot of fun for my 2 year old to help but they can get very messy with a toddler. I halved the recipe but used one egg and it turned out great, and made exactly 15 2 inch cookies! I took the advice of another reviewer and cooked at 350 for 10 min. I also dipped the cup in sugar before flattening them. Oh and I made mine with cherry Jello and used Almond extract instead of vanilla. I am excited to try lemon next time!

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
Yummy! I did as others suggested. More seasoning and more milk and broth to make it creamier. I also added chopped potato. Perfect!

Pralines

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
The best! I grew up in New Orleans and since I moved away Ive missed eating pralines. These are the pralines I remember as a kid. I used half & half and it came out perfect.

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
These are really good. They came out pretty crisp, not crispy just crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, not mushy at all! Make sure they are not too thin or too thick, they do shrink a bit. Cut them kind of like steak fries then you'll get mcdonald sized fries when they're done. Coat them very lightly in olive oil then season them. I baked them 20 minutes on one side then flipped them, after about 10 minutes on the other side I checked them and took out the smaller ones (they were starting to brown) then left the others in for about 5 more min. Perfect! My 19 month old is actually eating squash! Another important step is DO NOT over crowd the pan, leave space between the fries.

Roasted Grapes and Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
I really wanted to like this but sadly it just didnt taste good to me. I like onions, i really like carrots, and I love graps, but the combination of the three just didnt work for me. sorry.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
This is so yummy! I halve the recipe and use 1 bag of popped corn but only 1/4 of the required butter. It is perfect every time. Once I added chopped pecans to the caramel just before pouring it onto the popcorn, AMAZING!

Sugar Coated Pecans

These are absolutely amazing, I follow the recipe exactly and get great results each time. Last Christmas I even wrapped them up and gave them away as gifts, people love and expect these now. Thanks for the recipe.

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
This was sooo good! I added pecans instead of walnuts, and I added it to the cream cheese mixture instead of the cake. This was my first time making a roll cake and I couldnt believe how easy it was.

Grandma Smith's New Brunswick-Style Turkey Stuffing

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
This has a really great flavor, just a bit dry. Everyone liked it but as the minutes went by it got more and more dry. But, I do like it so much I want to experiment with a few things like cream of celery to get it just right for our tastes. Thank you for the recipe.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
This was the best fried chicken I ever made. Next time I wont flip it as much, the batter began to fall off. I think just one flip half way through will do the trick. Other than that this is perfect and will be a regular in my house.

Smothered Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
This is very tasty, the sauce never thickened but Im sure with a little cornstarch or flour water that could be fixed. I cooked it for 3 hours because we like it very tender. I omitted celery because I didnt have any on hand. I will try this again sometime with celery. You were right, it is very yummy on top of mashed potatoes.

Applesauce Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
My 1 year old loves this. I didnt think it was so great but anything my picky son eats deserves 5 stars. Ive made this twice already and I butter and toast both sides of the bread so its not as soggy. The second time I added banana slices and my little one couldnt get enough. I also sprinkled powder sugar on top. Thanks for this.

Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
This was ok, no one really ate them but me. I think the texture surprised everyone but not in a good way. Thank you very much for the recipe, just not what I was looking for in a banana cookie.
