Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
So easy and the best simple recipe. I made these cookies and used a heart shaped cookie cutter and iced them with pink colored royal icing and used them as wedding reception favors. Everyone LOVED them! It's not so easy if you have a hand mixer. Try to use a stand mixer. It will save your wrist! Don't melt the butter, sit it out and let it soften. After the dough is mixed I covered my cutting board with a sprinkle of flour and placed parchment paper over the dough and rolled the dough out to 1/2 inch thickness and used a cookie cutter. I baked the cookies for 23 minutes, don't wait til it's too golden brown or they will be over done. Let the cookies cool and decorate with royal icing. Royal icing: 3 egg whites to 5 cups of confectioners (powedered) sugar and 1 tablespoon of vanilla or almond extract. Beat egg whites until foamy and add extract. While beating, add sugar. Beat until you reach desired thickness. If it's too thick add a little water (tablespoon at a time) if it's too thin, add more confectioners (powdered) sugar. The cookies are sooo easy to make and such a delicious taste. Don't subsitute with white sugar because white sugar doesn't taste half as good. Use brown sugar only. Light or Dark is fine. Shortbread is much more tastier than sugar cookies for decorating!

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
Love this recipe because substitution still makes it easy and delicious! Didn't have Swiss so used Colby Jack, added a can of diced tomatoes and instead of all purpose flour, I used Bisquick. Came out delicious. The bisquick kind of makes a crust at the bottom. Really good and super easy!

Campbell's® Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Make this every holiday. Very easy! Instead of using soy sauce I subsituted with Worchestershire sauce and it turned out great. Don't overdo the milk or mushroom soup or it will end up too watery and mushy.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Oh my gosh! This recipe is awesome!! So easy to make and very delicious! I made this the night before and let it refridgerate over night. Also, instead of slicing the bacon in thirds you can slice it in fourths. It still leaves a lot of bacon for each smokie. The next day I tossed it in it's juices, put it on a broiler pan (to help drain the bacon grease) sprinkled a little more brown sugar (avoid sprinkling clumps though) and baked it for 30-35 minutes to make sure the bacon was crisp. It turned out great! Perfect for parties and make sure you make a lot, because it will go fast! TIP: Line the bottom of the broiler pan with foil for easier clean up.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
All I have to say is WOW! Extremely easy to make and absolutely delicious! It's pretty rich, super moist and oh so delicious! I made it for Christmas and sprinkled the cake powdered sugar. This is the no-fail chocolate cake. I followed the recipe exactly and added about 8 additional minutes to cooking. Turned out perfect! Will definitely serve this again and again!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
Love this recipe! I've made it 4 times already and everyone always raves about it. The 1st few times I followed the recipe exactly, the last two, I added 1 tablespoon of sour cream to add a little more of a smoother texture. I doubled the amount of mozzarella cheese it calls for. I also serve it with a side of sour cream and salsa. Gives it a little zing! Very simple and easy to make.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I absolutely LOVED this recipe. The sauce is what makes it fabulous. The flavor is so savory and delicious. I had four 1/2 inch thick pork chops and doubled the ingredients which worked out perfect. I only cooked 20 mins on one side, 15 on the other and a 5 min broil. The broil made a big difference. It carmelized the sauce giving it a nice flavor. I will definitely use this sauce on ribs, it is a perfect rib sauce recipe. Also BBQ chicken as well. Super easy and very tasty! The flavor will keep you wanting more!

Chex® Muddy Buddies®

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Super duper easy, although I microwaved chocolate and peanut butter mixture a little longer until it rendered smooth. Be sure you use a big enough bowl! Made so much that I gave half of it to my neighbors and they ate them all up!

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Really easy to make and EVERYONE loves it! Made this for girls game night and everyone loved these little sandwiches. I did use hard salami instead of Genoa and it tasted better. No other changes, very simple and very delicious! To heat up the next day.. heat it up in a skillet to get the same flakey crust!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
Great recipe! Fast and easy...hubby loved it! He's not too crazy about water chestnuts so I substituted with shredded carrots. I didn't have pickled ginger so used 1 - 11/2 tsp of ground ginger. Omitted the chili sauce and used a little more soy sauce (aloha). Turned out soooo yummy! Hoisin sauce can be a tad sweet so you can adjust to taste. Love it!

Old-Fashioned Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
Wow! This was really EASY to make and soooo delicious! I used Round Top Steak and added a little Dale's marinade on it before beating the flour in. I used a can of medium spicy Rotel diced tomatoes and the juice from it plus 1 cup of water. I used all ingredients except for lemon juice since I didn't have any on hand. Cooked for 1 1/2 hrs at 350 and it turned out perfect! Didn't even need a knife to cut it. Great comfort food! My boyfriend LOVED it!!!! Definitely one to keep.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
This is SERIOUSLY the best chicken recipe for a quick meal. Of course I changed it up a bit. Instead of breadcrumbs I used Pepperidge Farm herb seasoned stuffing mixed with shreaded parmesean cheese, this makes it VERY crispy and gives it a good flavor! I tenderized the chicken and seasoned with salt, garlic powder, a touch of ginger and pepper. Smoothered the chicken in mayo and then rolled it in the stuffing and cheese mix. Baked at 400 degrees for 30 minutes exact and came out PERFECT! Tender and juicy and just enough crisp on the outside. This is an awesome recipe you can tailor to your needs!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
This turned out delicious! 1/2 the recipe and tweaked a little of the measurements. You can cut down on the butter a lot. I added chopped artichokes to the mixture then topped it off with panko breadcrumbs. Tasted delicious! Broiling really makes the panko extra crispy with each bite. You can edit the recipe by using low fat mayo and cut down on the butter. I was too lazy and just used garlic powder, salt and ground pepper to spice it up. Turned out way too good. Served it with lemon orzo and it was a hit with my hubby! Will serve this again soon!

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
This was really easy and delicious! Took a little time to prepare but it's worth it. I followed one of the reviewer's instructions by blanching the peppers in boiling water for 2-3 minutes then submerged in ice water before beginning. I added a little more seasoning and added it to taste. Covered with foil and baked for 1 hours. 10 mins prior to an hour, I added cheese on the top and cooked for the remaining time uncovered. It really turned out nice and moist! I omitted the water which was probably a good thing because the steam was enough water for the dish. I suggest for next time, adding chopped onions, minced garlic and some extra spices to make it even more mouthwatering! Will use this recipe again!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
Very easy to make and scrumptious! Took less than 5 minutes to combine all ingredients. Its very light and fluffy. You may need to cook a little longer than 45 minutes. The middle takes longer to cook. I kept it in for an hour and it came out perfect! Next time I'll add some jalapeno slices for a little kick.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Super easy and so tasty! I made it for two, but don't trust the measurements when you change the servings. I made it with 2 green peppers, split in halves. Sauteed onions & celery and added some garlic powder. Used 1 pound of ground beef, 1 cup of rice and 1 can of rotel chopped tomatoes. I added 1 cup of water and a dash of worcestershire sauce. Mix in the cheese then stuff the green peppers. I heaped the mixture on to each bell pepper where it was overflowing but still in the pepper. Covered with tomato soup and water mixture, cheese and panko breadcrumbs for 30 mins. Oh sooooo good! It makes a lot of "stuffing" but its perfect!

Bacon Water Chestnut Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
I was looking for bacon wrapped recipes and this one kept popping up. Let me tell you... Oh mah gosh this is sooooo good! I love the sweet and crunchy of the water chestnut. I found the water chestnuts in the Asian section of the grocery store. I didn't have chili sauce which I don't think is really needed so I used a bit of Sriracha hot chili sauce, gave it a nice kick! I so recommend this recipe, it will knock your guests socks off!

Best Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
Wow! This was so easy and really tasty! Good way to cook fresh green beans. I used low sodium soy and it adds a nice flavor to the green beans. If your green beans are fresh it may take a little longer to cook. Ultimately delicious, one of hubby's favorite veggie dishes!

Pecan Snack

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Wow! Easy and absolutely delicious! I submitted a photo of the finished product and it was hard to stop picking at it during the cooking process! I only had half a pound of pecans but used all the same measurements and it came out perfectly coated and delicious! I will definintely give these out for Christmas. It's much better than the nut kiosk you see in the malls. It's so easy to make its absolutely effortless! A must recipe for the holidays!
