Chocolate Shell Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
This recipe was exactly what I needed to top a cheesecake- it was easy and came out tasting so good. I added about a tablespoon of milk to make it a bit thinner, like other commenters. Overall a really quick, easy recipe that is USEFUL and a must have for everyone's recipe box!

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
These are SO YUMMY! I baked them exactly as the recipe states, and they turned out absolutely perfect. Next time I will use a little less salt (the only thing I didn't do according to the recipe, I just sprinkled from the shaker) and add some garlic powder. This recipe is a definite winner, and couldn't be easier!

Honey-Brined Fried Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
Wow! This recipe is fabulous! It didn't turn out the way I was expecting. I thought it would end up a little sweet, like my favorite Tyson honey-battered chicken strips... not so much. It was still delicious, though! I followed the recipe exactly, except I didn't dry the chicken after I dredged it. Also, I used scallopines from Sprout's, so it cooked really quickly and didn't get overdone on the outside or dry out. Also, I used fat free regular milk instead of the buttermilk. Really a wonderful recipe for fried chicken that is easy and doesn't take too long!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
Really a very good dish, and quite simple! I cut the chicken into smallish pieces, instead of strips and I coated it in corn starch before cooking. I would use no salt, and a little less oil next time, but it came out delicious anyways! The spicy and sweet combo is perfect.

Boneless Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
Delicious! I made these with spicy sweet BBQ sauce instead of buffalo for my boyfriend. We ate them with a frozen pizza, garlic bread a beer... a pizza place dinner at home! The recipe is a little time consuming, but super easy and almost fool-proof (I'm not a fryer AT ALL... but mine still came out tender on the inside, crispy on the outside and perfectly coated!). The only thing I would change is the amount of flour, because like other reviewers, I barely had enough. Also, DEFINITELY double batter, it helps give the coating the restaurant look and taste! All in all a GREAT recipe!

Crescent Bacon-Cheddar Pinwheels

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I made these to take to my parents' for Thanksgiving. We always have the same old appetizers, so I figured I'd give these a try for something new! I used the Lay's ranch dressing in a jar, because I thought the thicker consistency would be great for these (and it tastes amazing). I also used reduced fat cheese, and made my own bacon bits from fresh bacon from the deli. Four or five strips is plenty for this recipe. Also, I didn't have any green onions on hand, so I sprinkled a little garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper on top of everything. Came out great, tasty and made my whole apartment smell wonderful! Great for a quick, easy app or even a fancier hors d'ouevre. Wonderful!

Easy Sausage Pizza by Johnsonville®

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
Ridiculously simple, but I would suggest adding a little something extra... garlic, or maybe make your own pizza sauce. I also always cook the sausage a bit on the stove, first, just to be on the safe side. I love having thinly sliced black olives on my sausage pizza, too. Great base of a recipe, though!

Pecan Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
First of all, I LOVE cream cheese pie and hate when people unfairly compare it to cheesecake. It isn't supposed to be the same thing. I pretty much free-handed this whole recipe, and it came out delightful. Like another reviewer, I used a graham cracker crust, I feel like it pulled all the flavors together better than a normal pie crust would have. I also toned down the topping by using very finely chopped pecans. This is a delicious, light, sweet dessert, suitable for any occasion or season.

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
I made this last night for dessert. It is SO good! I took the advice of other reviewers and mixed the cake mix, cream cheese and butter. I could have done a better job of mixing, but I kind of like the way the top turned out. It was gooey and doughy right on top of the peaches and a bit dry and crumbly on top. It turned out delicious! I'll definitely be making this quick version of cobbler again soon. I used brown sugar instead of white, and mixed it, the water and cinnamon together and poured over about 7 sliced peaches in a 9x9 baking dish. I did use the full amount of cake mix, so the topping was a little thicker. Next time I think I'll use less water, or skip it altogether (my peaches froze a bit in the fridge, so it turned out very runny) so it's less syrupy. Loved this recipe!

Quick and Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
My roommate and I make a similar meal all the time, but I really like the idea of turning enchiladas into a casserole- saves so much time! To make it extra rich, mix some cream of chicken soup with the sour cream. We like ours extra saucy, so remember you can never have too much sauce! Also, to make this even simpler, it's very good with a pre-cooked deli rotisserie chicken, or chicken that's cooked in a crock pot all day. Yum!

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
I love making broccoli like this for the boyfriend! It's his favorite veggie, and he ALWAYS requests this when I cook. Super easy, too.. one of those things you can throw together and in the oven while you cook the rest of the meal. Roasting the broccoli really makes the flavors stand out. I love using a TON of garlic, sea salt and cracked pepper. Occasionally I'll use other seasonings too, but it's perfect plain because of the flavor roasting creates. Never had it with lemon--- can't wait to try!

Cookies 'n Cream Cake

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Very, very good! Super sweet, and the icing tasted just like the creme filling in an oreo. Yummy, nice concept, and looked pretty.

RWOP Finalist: Mounds of Joy Whipped Pie

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
I'm not reviewing, I'm just clarifying: the recipe calls for cheesecake flavored pudding, but the description says chocolate is used. Which one? This sounds soooo delicious, but I don't want to make it wrong. :)

No-Bake Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
I thought it was pretty good. It definitely did NOT have the same consistancy as cheesecake, but still tasted great! Rather than put the chocolate in the cream cheese mixture, I left the pie plain and then drizzled melted chocolate over the top. For a quick, no-bake dessert, this is delicious, just don't expect it to be as dense and rich as a real cheesecake.

Pot Stickers (Chinese Dumplings)

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
Awesome, AWESOME recipe! I changed mine a bit, and greatly reduced the quantity (made 4 servings instead of 12... but I still had a bag full of extra filling after making 10 stickers for me and my roommate!). I actually used sausage instead of shrimp and beef, but next time I think I'll use half sausage and half ground chicken (the flavor was VERY strong, which we liked very much, but others may not). I did not add any sesame oil, and added a bit of honey insead of the sugar. Also, I cooked the meat/cabbage mixture in a pan until nearly done, and then stuffed the wrappers. I baked the potstickers at 425 degrees for 7 minutes, turned them over and baked for another 3 minutes. Came out perfectly crispy outside with the piping hot filling juicy on the inside. Delicious!! **also, I added minced garlic, of course!
