Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
Made this up for a family gathering, and it went over pretty well. I cut back on the sugar and thought it was still slightly too sweet. I'm not sure if I would make it again, it just didn't "do it" for me.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
I used still frozen blueberries and doubled the whole recipe. It was delicious, the topping is fantastic!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I LOVE these brownies! I follow the recipe as written and they're great. I also sometimes omit the chocolate chips and instead smush peanut butter cups or York peppermint patties down into the top of the batter. DH loves the PB cup ones, but they're both a huge hit at work.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
My husband and I love this stuff! We use Franks hot sauce and it comes out great each time. I'm lazy and don't brown the meat, so I don't use the oil. I just throw the rest of the ingredients into the crockpot and let it go. My mom loves to take the leftover juice and turn it into a soup base.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
Amazing! I followed the popular reviews and used the whole package of pudding mix (which means I needed a bit more water in the dough). I also left out the nuts, but followed the rest of the recipe as described. They were delicious! I've made this recipe three times so far (once was an orange version), and all three were a hit.

Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
I thought there was slightly too much paprika flavor, so I would halve that the next time I make it. I also ran out of the butter and bread crumb mixture, so I would use more. Overall though, it was good and I would make it again! It looks super easy to adapt the flavors for other spices/herbs.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
Amazing cookie recipe! Full of chocolate chips (I did half regular half mini) and a great taste. I like these more than the "award winning" recipe as those had a fake chemical taste. I made smaller cookies and baked for about 12 minutes and they came out perfect. DELICIOUS!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Super easy bread to make. I wasn't sure about it while doing the kneading (it seemed too dry and too moist at the same time), but I went ahead with it and it turned out really good. The buttermilk/butter mixture on the crust is amazing and gives the crust great crunch and flavor. I brushed it on twice (once before baking and once in the middle of baking), and I'll make sure to do that part again when I make this recipe again. Like a previous reviewer said, this makes good toast the next morning! I served this with a Guinness beef stew recipe (from this site) that was served over mashed potatoes, and the whole meal was a big hit.

Beef and Irish Stout Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Made this for dinner last night and it was great! I had some minor changes (didn't brown the meat, so I didn't use the oil or flour), used 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper, and a heavy dash of cayenne. Also used about 3 TB tomato paste, 1 cup Guinness, and 1 cup beef stock, and dried thyme. I wasn't sure about the smell while cooking in the crockpot (it wasn't bad, but wasn't good either), but I served it on mashed potatoes with Irish soda bread (also from this site), and it was a HUGE hit! Because I used more liquid, I had a lot of gravy which I thickened with cornstarch. DELICIOUS!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Great cake and AMAZING frosting! I followed the recipe exactly except for the lemon juice (I didn't have), and I only used 3 cups of sugar in the frosting. It did take 80 minutes to cook, but I put it in the freezer when done, just like the instructions said, and it came out nice and moist. This is more dense than a normal cake (but not as dense as banana bread). The frosting is what makes it though - GREAT cream cheese frosting! Hubby took this to work and people were raving about it. A winner for sure!

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Quick and EASY way to cook corn on the cob. I cooked three ears with the husks/silk on for 8 minutes total (flipping them over halfway through). I do think I prefer lightly boiled corn better, but this was done before water would even be ready to boil. The husks and silk came off super easy when the corn as cool enough to handle.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
I read a bunch of the popular reviews and went with what they said. My changes: used butter instead of shortening, made the dough in the food processor, and lightly rolled/kneaded it with a bunch more flour (since the dough was quite sticky). I got 10 biscuits and they're delicious! I'll be using this recipe from now on, it's so easy and quick!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
I haven't tasted the baked cookies yet, but I made a double batch with a few modifications. I doubled everything except for the vanilla (did 1 TB), white chocolate (12 oz bag of white chocolate chips), and nuts (10 oz chopped). The dough is quite tasty and made 7.5 dozen cookies (I portioned the raw dough out and froze it, to bake later). I will update this review when we have tried the baked cookies! UPDATE: Maybe it's because I was baking the dough from a frozen state, but they didn't spread much at all. The flavor was okay, but not amazing. I like the dough better than the cooked cookies! My husband says the cookies are a hit at work though.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
AMAZING! I've never had homemade applesauce, and I won't be going back to the store bought. I made a triple batch and used 12 apples - 6 fuji, 3 granny smith, and 3 brayburn. I used the apples, 1/2 cup water and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. No sugar. I cooked them in the crockpot for 4 hours on high. A slight mash with a potato masher and they were perfect. A word of warning: don't try this warm! I had my first taste when the applesauce was still warm and it was kinda nasty. I was really disappointed until I tried the cold applesauce the next day. HUGE difference! I'm on my third triple batch in three weeks, and I'm going to make two more batches this weekend and freeze it all.

Crumpets

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
Amazing! We've made this twice, the first time we didn't have a griddle, so we cooked them in a pan on medium heat. I read the recipe wrong and accidently used all the butter in the batter, and they still came out just fine. The second time we used a griddle and cooked them at 300 degrees, but I think that was a bit too low, I would do 325 or 350 next time. These are GREAT with butter and raspberry jam!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
EXCELLENT! I've made these three weeks in a row, and the people at work LOVE them. My two suggestions: Instead of making cookies, make one huge bar cookie and cut up. And, and add soaked raisins. I did this the last time I made these, and they got even better reviews then the cookies themselves. I made a double batch (with 1 cup soaked raisins) and baked all the dough in a 11x17 jelly roll pan. I waited for it to cool, cut them with a pizza cutter, and frosted them individually, like I did the cookies. They were a HUGE hit at work!

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
This is the only pumpkin pie recipe I use! I do use 50% more spices just to add to the flavor. I also add a tablespoon molasses, just because my mom always does that. :) Oh, and if I'm cutting calories, I make it crustless. Just spray the pie pan with Pam and bake according to directions. It works GREAT!

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
I make this pecan pie every year, and it gets rave reviews. I'll never make a different recipe again! This pie is FULL of pecans and not all that brown "goop" that most pecan pies are full of. If you love pecans, you'll love this pie! My only changes are that I use 3 cups of pecans, half chopped, and half pecan halves, and I add a teaspoon of vanilla like the other reviews. I also use store-bought refrigerated pie crust to save on time and labor.
