Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
I am NOT a cookie maker by any stretch of the imagination, but you really can't mess this up. My sister who is a great cook directed me to this recipe. I was doubtful, as I said, I am not a cookie maker. But these came out perfectly. IF you follow the directions. Start doing your own thing and adding this and taking away that and you can't blame the recipe. Excellent cookies that my daughter and I had a great time making together.

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
I made this for a pot luck lunch and work and everyone loved it! Very simple to make and a great summertime dish. I am usually not a a fan of cilantro, but this had just the right amount to not be overpowering...it wouldn't taste the same without it. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe!

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
I followed this recipe to the letter and the cookies turned our perfectly, and I am not an expert cookie maker! Warning: this recipe makes ALOT...much more than the two dozen it says it makes. My daughter and I made two batches and we came up with 106 cookies...and they were not teeny tiny ones either! Thank you Pam for this recipe...it's a keeper for sure!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This is awesome! I took the advice of others and only used 1/4 cup water and it turned out perfectly. Also doubled the topping, putting the apples between the two layers. It completely filled up my 9 x 13 Pampered Chef baking dish! I tossed the apples in the sugar and cinnamon mixture vs. pouring on top and the apples came out perfectly. Because I doubled the topping I baked it for close to an hour and it was perfectly done. Granny Smith apples worked well for me. And I didn't notice until just now that the recipe doesn't specify if the apples are to be peeled--I guess I just assumed they were to be peeled, so that's what I did. Served with vanilla ice cream for a birthday lunch today (my sister requested this vs. a birthday cake) and everyone loved it.

Ham Bone Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
Very good soup! A greatand healthy way to use up my leftover Christmas ham! I added a few things: 2 bay leaves, an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce (I like things tomatoe-y), a clove of garlic-minced, and some chopped celery. Cooked in my slow cooker for 6 hours and it was just right. Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Great recipe for my leftover Christmas ham! It cooked in my crockpot on low for 11 hours and boy did the house smell heavenly when I came home from work! I used closer to 2 cups of ham (wanted to use it up) and an extra cup of water. Also used an entire 8 ounce can of tomato sauce (hated to throw the whole can for only 8 teaspoons as the recipe called for). I don't have a food processor so it was alot of chopping, but it was worth it. This recipe is a keeper.

Ambrosia Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
This was excellent--I'm not a big fan of coconut, so I followed the advice of others and cut the amount in half. Also cut the spices in half. Came out perfectly with a wonderful flavor and texture. Made for Christmas Eve dinner and it was a big hit!

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I made this to take to my in laws Thanksgiving dinner and it was a big hit! Very easy to make and it turned out perfectly! I followed some of the tips from others and used 3 8 ounce packages of cream cheese and 1/2 cup of sour cream added after the eggs are beaten in. It is definitely a cheesecake with a mild pumpkin flavor...so if you dont like cheesecake, don't try it. I got some Cool Whip to serve with it, but it really didn't need it. Wonderful texture. My husband is not a big fan of pumpkin pie, but he thought it was delicious. Thanks for a wonderful recipe I will make again and again.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
Outstanding! I made this for a family dinner along with some mexican cornbread and everyone raved about it. I like my chili on the "soupy" side, so this was wonderful. I drained a can of chopped tomatoes and added, only because my family likes them (and I admit, I wanted to use them up!)and it was wonderful. Would definitely make again!

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This was my first attempt at cornbread from scratch and I couldn't have been more pleased. I took the advice of some of the other cooks and halved the butter and sugar. It was still plenty sweet and very moist. I didn't want to waste half a can of chiles so I used the whole can. Other than that, didn't change a thing and it turned out perfectly! Will definitely make again!

Baked Beans III

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
Very good! I doubled the beans (took advice from others and used the Bush's Baked Beans with brown sugar and bacon, added a large chopped sweet onion, and kept the brown sugar and bacon the same. They were plenty sweet enough! Excellent and very easy to make--a keeper!

Split Pea and Ham Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
Great recipe! I doubled it, as had alot of people here for the holidays, and they all raved about it. Very easy and a great way to use up the Christmas ham. I also added a couple of cups of ham that was left over after being cut off the bone. My husband HATES English peas but he thought this was great! Would definitely make again.

Cheesy Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
Excellent recipe! I'm glad I read the reviews before making, as I did make a few changes: I used a whole stick of salted butter, also added ground black pepper, garlic salt, and dried parsley and used sharp cheddar cheese vs. American. Got out my trusty potato masher and mashed up the potatoes before I added the cheese. Also took the advice of other readers and used 2 cups of water and 2 cups of chicken broth. For garnishes I put out garlic and cheese croutons and Durkee french fried onions and served with a loaf of garlic toast. Very, very good! Would definitely make again! Thank you!

Pumpkin Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
I love cheesecake and pumpkin pie, so I was excited to try this. It lived up to my expectations, and my whole family enjoyed it as part of our Thanksgiving dinner. I used pumpkin pie spice, which has the cinnamon, ginger, nutmet, and allspice already in it, which simplified things. And I made only one deep dish 9" cheesecake instead of two 8" cheesecakes...would rather have a little leftover than two skimpy pies. I had to bake it a little longer, but it was worth it...delicious and would definitely make again!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2004
I usually don't deviate from recipes the first time I make them, but I needed to stretch this a bit more...I doubled the ham, added a can of cream of celery soup, two cans of water, and two cans of beans. I also pureed about half of the mixture to thicken it. I wished I had just made it the regular way, but it tasted great, even though it ended up looking like what comes out of a can of Campbell's soup. Pretty hard to mess this up though...I would make again!

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
It doesn't get any easier or any better than this...why would anyone want the canned stuff? It looks so pretty on the table too. I had to cook mine a little longer than the recipe stated in order for the cranberries to break up a little. Put it in the fridge overnight and served the next day. Looks and tastes expensive.

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
I made this for Thanksgiving dinner because I wanted something different...I found it to be very tasty but very SWEET, as other reviewers have mentioned. Would definitely make again, perhaps with Ritz crackers instead of the vanilla wafers.
