Brownie-Mallow Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
Aside from making my own brownies (from scratch), I followed the recipe and received rave reviews from coworkers! They are rich but OH so delicious! Great treat!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2005
Phenomenal. Super-tasty! Everyone at work LOVED them and asked for the recipe! Didn't add nuts (others with allergies or don't like...). Turned out perfect! I'm excited to make them again!

Whipping Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
Arg. It ended up getting stuck in the pan so about 1/3 of it looks like ... but it sure tastes wonderful!! Love how perfectly moist and *flavorful* it is! The outer pieces have a delicate crispiness from the sugar, providing a slight chewiness on the exterior. It's heavenly, really. I subbed half AP flour because I ran out of cake...and skipped the almond because I was out of that too. Another thing this recipe is good for: reminding me I'm out of the basics. =) Good luck! Grease that pan well!!

Artichoke and Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
A favorite at our new years party! (I'm a little behind on rating this) Everyone loved it - I even forgot to add the mayo until the end...which worked out because of a lactose-intolerant friend. The recipe just wasn't as creamy as it could've been. Still delicious!

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
Super easy, indeed! And incredible flavors that really go well together. I followed the recipe but used sour cream instead of mayo as a personal preference. Dry dill weed works just fine, though fresh would be fabulous!! Great, easy addition to any appetizer table!

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
WOW!! DELICIOUS!! I did 1/3 less of the crumb mixture...only sprinkled on top. Could've done 1/2 recipe. EXCELLENT!! I don't want to stop eating it! Haven't taken to work yet, but I am SOO happy I did a small "tester" dish =) Will make again and again... **Used fresh raspberry & blueberrie. But only had frozen blackberries (do not thaw before baking). Wowza! =)

Peanut Butter Brownies II

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
I love recipes that use every-day ingredients, have straight-forward directions, and taste outrageously delicious!! I followed the directions exactly - however, I lined the pan with tinfoil to make getting them out of the pan easier and cutting goes a LOT smoother when I can do it on a cutting board rather than in the pan (doesn't create ugly, jagged edges). I cannot wait for people at work to try them! I think they are amazingly rich, beautiful brownies. The peanut butter is relatively mellow, so if you're like some and really expecting the PB to pop, it does seem these are more about the chocolate. Perhaps experiment and try upping the PB and reducing the cream cheese a bit. YUMMMM! **Just realized these are like Michelle's Peanut Butter Marbled Brownies on this site (I've made those too), but her's uses less of the cream cheese... maybe give that a shot. The Cream cheese will be less intense, but if you don't mind it, I say this recipe is great--certainly richer.

Sour Cream Spice Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
I wanted a spice cake - not a pear spice cake, not a pumpkin spice cake... or all the other variations out there. I almost tried a couple others with more ratings, but I am really glad to have found this recipe and give it a shot! What a wonderful cake!! I didn't find it to be dense at all; folding in the egg whites makes for a lighter, fluffier cake. After storing in the refrigerator (bf prefers it chilled), it does firm up a bit but that's expected. Great spice flavors really shine through--and are nicely complemented by the cream cheese frosting I decided to make instead of the one provided as part of the recipe (personal preferences). Give this recipe a shot!! You won't be let down!

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
Excellent! I've made these a few times--they taste better a day or so later...less OREO-like. Sweet, rich, indulgent treats! Will make a great (and impressive!) Christmas treat to give!

Banana Muffins with a Crunch

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Giving credit where it's due, this is identical to the Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten) recipe. With that, I will say the recipe is exceptional. While I didn't get the crown I like to see on the muffins, the taste and texture is very appealing and delicious. I forgot to add fresh banana chunks, but it still turned out great! I decided to use some leftover caramel and ganache toppings to make the tops a little prettier and use up the toppings. Yum! Great crunch and texture with the granola, walnuts, and coconut!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2005
LOVE it! Left some of the peels on the apple and added some frozen cranberries towards the end to make it more "rustic." (add at end so some still have a little 'pop') Huge hit at a baby shower brunch...making again right now!! --Cortland apples worked great--Fab recipe; so quick and easy! **Update on this, used Haralson Apples. They didn't mush so well (see photo) but they were fab!!!

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Tasty, chocolatey, chewy cookies. I loved how they were almost brownie-like. So easy to throw together - I popped the container in the freezer for about 2 hours and it worked just fine. Very pleased - great any time but I think it will be nice for Christmastime.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
YUM! SO tasty! I love these so much more than chips for munching! Next time I'll remove stems and leave whole, then brush each with olive oil and test spraying some with Pam... following the recipe you get some soggier pieces so I'm hoping to avoid that. But they are still so tasty! --As far as seasoning, salt is great. I might try shaking some seasoning on AFTER baking next time (kind of like how they don't season fries until AFTER baking/frying). I'm so glad I tried this! The wonderful flavor of kale is great in this snack food!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
Amazing. Incredible. So moist. So delicious. I can't really add anything to what all the other reviewers have said (at least those who followed the recipe). YUM!!

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2005
Absolutely awesome!! I made it a little more vegetable-y...adding mushrooms, spinach, zucchini, and yellow squash. Used one jar garden vegetable pasta sauce, one jar garlic cheese pasta sauce. Turned out perfect! This was my first time making lasagna--was hesitant to make because it's just me here...I ended up sharing with family and friend who LOVED it...eventhough it didn't have meat. Oh--used only one cup mozzarella cheese, one cup marble jack. YUMMM!!

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I love veggies and I LOVE brownies... and so naturally, spinach brownies, gotta be good, right?! =) I love trying new recipes so I added this to my recipe box. Easy and tasty! I used frozen chopped spinach (thaw/drain), sauteed the onions in olive oil, used half the butter called for, and added a piece of crumbled/cooked bacon. The bacon added nice saltiness and flavor that salt alone cannot accomplish...a little color too! Using half the butter, I felt it was sufficient...I didn't want to deal with the greasiness many others said they experienced. --Overall, fun, tasty recipe that reminded me of quiche.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
These cookies really do stand out from the rest! I absolutely love the mild molasses flavor you can taste if you pay attention to it. So awesomely chewy... not too crazy with tons of oatmeal. It's really an awesome cookie! I wish mine were a tad thicker, but I can play around with that and add more flour/BS/BP. And I can't wait to play around with this recipe again--they are just THAT awesome. Really?? Only 20 reviews?? Such a shame! =) I think I'll go have another... while there still are some left!

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Perfectly easy and tasty meatball recipe! I ran out of bread crumbs (I was making this with 5# of meat! Yielding around 150 meatballs) so I subbed some Ritz crackers. Using a cookie scoop to form the meatballs is a quick trick to uniform size. I also like to bake them on a cooling rack over a foil-lined pan; it was about 20 minutes for the size of ball I made. After cooling completely, I popped them in the freezer for a week or two. After spending the morning on low in the crockpot, covered with sauce, they were thawed and ready to eat! They went over very well at the party!

Black Beans with Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Bacon really does make everything better...wow! I opted to use a can of beans to make my life easier and I skipped the parsley (my only recipe this week that called for it). Other than that, I pretty much followed the recipe and, again, WOW! I used naples tip of adding cumin and I think it definitely adds a little more depth to the dish...just a light sprinkle, to taste. I cannot wait for lunch!
