Simple Strawberry Syrup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2015
I needed to make up a super fast strawberry reduction sauce to put over a little personal sized strawberry short cake. Today is my husband's birthday and I wanted to surprise him with one of his favorite treats before he left for work. This recipe is so simple and straightforward with tasty results. The syrup thickened nicely and tasted great. I used the leftover reduction to put over my son's waffles and he liked it, too.

Cali's Sinful Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2014
I made this recipe exactly as written and I thought it was excellent. I might add a little more sugar next time, but overall, great taste!

Blackened Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
I want to add an update: When you make this pizza, and if you have leftovers, it tastes even better after letting it sit in the fridge overnight!! YUM.

Blood Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
I have never seen blood oranges before. I called my local supermarket and had them special order them for me just to make this recipe :-) I thought it produced a very juicy tasting chicken. I was surprised that it did not have an overwhelming orange taste to it. The sauce is yummy, and I didn't have any white wine, but I did have red wine, so I used that in the sauce and it still tasted great. That is the only thing I did differently about this recipe, otherwise, I followed it exactly. I wouldn't change anything. Great dish!

No Bakes

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
These are my husband's favorite cookies, and they are so easy to make. I just cut it down to one cup of sugar because I didn't want these to turn out too sweet, but other than that, excellent cookies.

LC'S Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
Yum! These are a great, healthy way to sneak vegetables into your kids. My three-year-old had no problem polishing off his helping! The spices add to the sweet flavor with a bit of kick. The only thing I would recommend is baking the fries at 425 for 40 minutes on a cookie sheet instead of pan frying them. I tried pan frying a handful of them and then baked the rest in the oven, but the pan fried ones didn't turn out nearly as good as the baked ones. It is true that sweet potato fries don't get as crispy as regular potatoes, so don't expect these to be crunchy; just expect them to be delicious!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
YEAH! This was the chocolate cake I had been striving for! Add just a little bit more cocoa powder if you're an extreme chocolate lover and you'll be satisfied. The coffee really adds that something extra I had been wanting in a chocolate cake.

Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Oh good Lord. YUM. That's about all I can say. I had cream cheese stuffed french toast once in my life at IHOP, and this recipe is right on par with it. This is so simple to prepare and cook, and it looks very elegant when it's all put together. Like a lot of people said, this french toast is very filling and one little triangle of this will probably do the trick to fill you up, especially if you serve it with coffee, juice, or fresh berries on the side. I thought I would add this note: To cut a few calories, you can also just spread light cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese between the slices of bread instead of mixing in the sugar/vanilla mixture, and instead of putting butter in the pan to brown the toast, use a no calorie PAM spray and leave out topping your toast with whipped cream. Absolutely wonderful recipe. I will be making this again!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
I loved this recipe. It's a little different than the meatloaf recipe I usually use, so I liked changing things up a little. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it makes a very sweet tasting meatloaf. I wasn't sure about the ginger at first, but you won't even know it's there once the meatloaf is cooked. I read in the reviews that some people thought the brown sugar and ketchup mixture should be placed on top of the loaf, and not under it. I will say that yes, the mixture is pretty runny when the meatloaf first comes out of the oven, but if you remove the loaf and put it on a serving platter and let the sauce sit for a while, it thickens and makes a very nice sauce to pour over the top of the meatloaf slices.

Garlic Lover's Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
I made this recipe exactly as written, EXCEPT for three additional spices added: Italian, oregano, and basil. This made a nice, full 13x9 inch pan dinner, and my son and husband loved it. My husband ate two big pieces of chicken and has dished up the leftovers for work tomorrow, but he couldn't stop picking at the leftovers as he was dishing it up. He deemed this as possibly his new favorite meal, so thank you very much for posting this recipe. I will be adding this to our monthly menu for sure. I didn't think any of the flavors were too overpowering, but we are all big cheese and garlic lovers, so I can see where someone who wasn't so keen on the Parmesan and garlic flavors would probably want to cut back.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
This is the same recipe I've used for chocolate chip cookies my whole life. Never, ever fails. The secret to getting them perfect is to add the exact measurement of each ingredient and do not cook past 10 minutes if you want a gooey cookie.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
These are really good. I made them on Christmas morning for my family and they were all in heaven. The cream cheese frosting is the best part. I made the bread dough by hand, though, as I do not have a bread machine and it still turned out fine.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2014
Great recipe that produces yummy, nostalgic sugar cookies, and I love that you don't have to chill the dough before you bake. I made the recipe exactly as written and found it to be a little dry, so I just added about 2 tsp. of milk and it was perfect. This is a keeper and will be a go-to for Christmas baking.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
My family loved this lasagna. As the recipe states, yes, it does take some extra time and preparation, but this tastes wonderful. If you don't have time during the week to make this, I think it would make a great weekend meal. I especially liked the homemade meat sauce. This came out cheesy and delicious and is now a family favorite. My three-year-old cleaned his plate (literally, licked the plate) and wants me to make it again. Also, I liked that this meal provided leftovers for lunch for a few days.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
SO EASY! This is a delicious, light bread that rises quickly. Each step says you should wait about an hour in the video, however, I found that each step really only took 30-35 minutes. I think what makes this bread so great is the sponge rising technique. I yielded three high loaves of bread with this recipe. This is quite an easy recipe, especially if you have a mixer. I sent off one fresh loaf of this bread to a relative today! This is a bread recipe I am keeping and will be sharing with others :-) Note: You can also use all-purpose flour and the bread will still taste totally fine.

Easy Homemade Pie Crust

If I would have known it was this easy to make homemade pie crust, I would have started doing it a long time ago. Excellent!

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I love this recipe. My 1.5 year old son does, too. I've made it twice now, and he has gobbled it down every single time. I use penne noodles and only add sausage, pepperoni, cheese, and sauce, because my husband doesn't like veggies in his pizza. This is a quick and easy recipe, great for nights when you need a quick meal! Thank you for sharing!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
WOW! These are AWESOME! They taste just like Applebees! The only thing I did different was use boneless chicken breasts cut into strips. My fiance loves boneless wings, so I bought a six pack of boneless, skinless breasts and used those instead. They still turned out just fine. I fried the chilled strips on the stove top in light olive oil instead of deep frying them and sprayed Pam on them while they were cooking. They turned out crispy and delicious! Thank you for this recipe! LOVE IT!
