Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
These are sooo good. Very rich, but a great gift for any chocolate lover! I used my smallest cookie scoop (abt a tbsp and a half) to make them all the same size. Wish I had an even smaller one because these are almost too rich to eat a whole one by yourself at the size suggested. I didn't have any problems forming them into balls right after mixing it all together, but I did refrigerate them for a couple of hours after forming into balls. I used Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips. The chocolate bark didn't work well for me. It hardened to quickly because I was dipping cold truffles into it. It took me a couple tries to get them “pretty” when I was pulling them out of the chocolate. Don't get discouraged... it just takes a little practice. (My hubby didn't mind eating the "ugly" ones! Ha ha) These taste best if you leave them sit out for 10-15 minutes before eating. Using forks to pull out of the melted chocolate worked great! These were even better the next day when the cookie crumbs had a chance to soften. ***UPDATE 01-18-11*** Bought a 1.5 tsp scoop. PERFECT SIZE! You might wanna halve the batch because this smaller scoop made almost 100 truffles (I think it was like 94).

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
SO GOOD! These are delicious and VERY rich! My family loved them. I added an extra 1/2 cup of marshmallows and made sure to really grease the sides of the pan (the marshmallows like to stick). They fall apart if you eat them hot (but they are sure good hot). Let them cool completely in the pan and they cut into bars really easily. I cooked for 18-20 minutes. Keep an eye on the marshamllows or they burn.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
This didn't turn out for me. It was a little dry and WAY TOO RICH. Tasted like eating chocolate chips straight outta the bag... One bite was great, but a whole slice was too much for me!

Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
YUM! Make sure you refrigerate these before cutting or all the frosting slides off the sides and down into the pan. Very rich.

Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
Tasty, but not what I was expecting. I thought these would be chewy, however they were actually crunchy (like a cookie) once they cooled. They should be called Toffee Cookies. :) Great toffee flavor. As soon as the choloate has melted and been spread you are going to want to cut these into squares. Once they have cooled they harden and it is difficult to cut them apart without breaking them and causing lots of crumbs. Make sure you grease your pan REALLY well too!!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
This is a GREAT recipe. I have used it for many years. I decrease the amount of oil to 3/4 cup and I also used LIGHT (Daisy Brand) sour cream and add a splash of vanilla. I don't do this for the lower fat, but becuase it makes the cake a little bit fluffier, not quite so heavy. It still has that rich flavor though! I also make these into muffins from time to time. I fill the muffin cups about 3/4 of the way full and sprinkle with square choclate chunks. We can never eat them all, so if we are not sharing them, I slip about 9 of them per gallon size ziplock bag and freeze them. After that you can eat them one at a time by heating them for 10-20 seconds in the microwave.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
Yummy right out of the oven. These cookies go stale really fast. Great for about 24 hours after you make them.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
I give this recipe four stars because I changed the recipe a little bit. Instead of dry onion soup mix, I used Campbell's French Onion Soup and omitted the water. This made a succulent roast. You can't mess up this recipe. Just stick it in the crock-pot and forget about it. I served the broth from around the roast on top of mashed potatoes. The roast came out so tender we didn't need knives. DELICIOUS! Once you have this recipe you won't even need another roast recipe.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
Taste great, but not a pretty recipe. I give it 5-stars for taste, but gave it four hear for the color. The black beans in this recipe cause the broth to become a dark color. Don't let it fool you though... This recipe tastes great! My family really enjoyed this for dinner on a cold rainy night. We used "My Nana's" tortilla strips on top with a dollop of sour cream and some shredded Mexican style cheese. Yum! This recipe will be used again in our house!

Local Kine Wontons

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
We used our blender to make the water chestnuts really fine. I hate water whole chestnuts, but they give this recipe such a delicious consistency that omitting them would be a mistake. I also used whipped cream cheese. Worked great. I would tone down the soy sauce a bit. Maybe use about half what it calls for, as it is a little strong. This recipe make a LOT so halving the recipe for smaller crowds or dinner parties may be a good idea. I also used whipped eggs whites to seal up the sides before dropping it into the grease. Worked great! Will use this recipe again and again.

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
Great Taste. I tried the marshmallow crème like someone else on here had suggested and it didn't work well. It stayed in one big hunk instead of swirling throughout the ice cream. Next time we will use mini-marshmallows. We used half and half instead of heavy cream to cut out some of the fat. Made the ice cream a thinner consistency, but after freezing it hardened up and tasted great. This recipe also makes a perfect amount of ice cream. I used my Kitchen aid ice cream maker.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
I followed specifications exactly. These brownies were dry and tasteless. I will NOT make these again. If you decide to try this recipe I would add some vegetable oil to give them more moisture. Also, the cook time needs to be more like 15-20 minutes, NOT 20-25 minutes. If you are looking for a fudgy recipe, this is NOT the recipe you want! The frosting, however, was great. I would use it again... just not with these brownies.

Blonde Brownies III

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
These fell after I took them out of the oven. Had a caramel taste that I didn't really prefer. Didn't taste like blondies to me. It's like they are missing something. Definalty wait to have them till at least a few hours after cooking as they fall apart and are extremely gooey. The sides were very chewy, almost hard. I cut them off before serving. I think I will try the other recipe for blondies and see if I get a better tasting blondie.

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
This was a quick, easy, delicious recipe. I used Chedder Cheese Soup as I could not find the Cream of Chedder Cheese Soup. It turned out delicious. I also, used chicken tenderloins. I placed them in the crock-pot frozen and cooked on high for about 4 hours. Turned out tender, NOT over cooked like some other reviewers had mentioned. Overall, a great recipe that I will use again and again.

Grandma's Yorkshire Pudding

Good Recipe. My husband had these when he spent some time in Canada. He said these aren't exactly the same, but they are close. Very simple to make.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2006
Great recipe, but I made a lot of changes. Here's my amended recipe: 1 cube of butter (cut up) 2 tbsp dried, minced onions 3/4 cup catsup 9 (15-16 oz) cans of beans, any variety 1 tbsp yellow mustard 1-2 tsp freshly ground pepper 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce 1/4 cup molasses (I used Grandma's Molasses) I put all this into a crock pot and let it simmer all day. I brought it to a BBQ and my beans were the only ones that were gone at the end. :) Stir it occasionaly while it is simmering to avoid sticking.

Green Grape Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
Great for parties and get-togethers, but not good for only a few people. Very rich and sweet. A little too simple for me, needed more ingredients. We ate some in small servings (because it was so rich) and the rest went to waste. I would rather just eat a handful of grapes.
