Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
I've made this two years in a row for my son's bday party, the lastest time being yesterday. This cake comes out so great. I cut the oil down to 3/4 cup but it was so thick I just threw in maybe a tbs. more. I also subbed out the water for coffee since I had just made a pot of it. Topped with peanut butter frosting, it's great. My son's actual bday is tomorrow so I have to make it again for that. Super easy. Thank you!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
I'm rating this recipe as written, with no changes. As is, it's not so great. But that may be because I didn't roll them into cut-outs. I needed a few reg. round sugar cookies for something and the rest of the batter I dropped by spoonfuls, flattened just a bit, added some colored sugar and baked for the 8 minutes. The 8 min. was spot on but the cookies themselves had little flavor. I read the reviews and I see that everyone has added in extra cups of sugar. I would definitely suggest that and would have done it myself but didn't have it on hand and wasn't running off to get it at 8:30 at night. So as is, it's not so flavorful. I will try this recipe next month when I have time to make cut-outs but it needs more than what's listed, flavor-wise.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
I love this recipe so much. It really is probably one of my most favorite recipes ever. I've made so many chicken pies using this and my mother-in-law loved it so much I had to give her the recipe. I do change it a bit to suit my husbands' taste. I trade out the carrots and peas for some diced potatoes. Thank you very much for posting!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
Very good. I went through a spell where I was bringing this for lunch all the time and the ladies in the teacher's room had to have the recipe. I just made this a couple months ago to bring to my sister's pool party and everyone there loved it. Thank you!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
My son wanted a "Club Penguin" cake for his birthday last year. Thank you so much for this recipe. I had no idea what I was doing but this saved me. I made an igloo, "puffles", penguins, etc. Not professional but he loved it and everyone thought it was so cute!

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
I use this every time I make a pie. Thank you so much for posting! So much better than store bought. Obviously not as easy but much better tasting!

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
Oh my gosh these were good. My husband always makes homemade peanut butter balls every year and I wanted to add something new with it. My brother and his wife came down Christmas night (we always put out a lot of treats for company stopping by) and they actually argued about which "truffle" they preferred. She liked these and he liked my husbands'. Traitor. :-)

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
These are pretty yummy. Not healthy at all but if you need a quick dessert for drop by company, this will do just fine probably!

Chex® Lemon Buddies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
I made this for camp. I liked the lemon flavor but I thought the powdered sugar was a bit over-powering. My family liked it okay but prefers the regular kind. I liked that you can have a new mix without buying a thousand ingredients. Simple and quick and definitely worth a try.

Caramelized Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
Wow! My sons like roasted pumpkin seeds a little, my husband not at all. We never did this in my house growing up so I like to do it now. I love that it's sort of healthy. I've always just done the salted and seasoned kind...never any with sugar. These came out great. The flavor is very good. I got my sugar carmalizing in a little butter before adding the seeds, tossed them in the spices, threw it back in the warm oven for just a minute (to see if I could make them crunchier) and let the boys try them. I'm buying another pumpkin today so I can try to get the seeds a bit crunchier but the taste is great.

A-Maize-ing Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I made this twice in one week at the request of my family. The first time I kept it the same. The second time around I cut fresh corn of the cob and added a cup of half and half. It's great for a fall day in Maine! Thanks!

Peach Cobbler VI

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
This was very easy. My husband and our dinner guest liked it. My sons and I thought it was okay. I think I should have cooked it longer than the time stated.

Building Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
I worked with this recipe for about two hours last night only to run out of dough at the end. I was only making one house but there's not enough for the roof. The dough got crumbly fast so I also did the microwave thing. We all have the day off from school today (snow day in Maine!) so my son's and I will try to put the finished parts together (sans roof) and see what happens!! Thanks for the recipe. I'll try again next year. Merry Christmas! :-)

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
I just got done frosting my husband's birthday cake with this. I have to make him a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting every year as it's his fave. This was great...easy to use and my son said it was the best frosting ever. Thanks!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
I've been making this for Christmas the last two years. I don't find it a bother to baste every 15 minutes at all...I'm in the kitchen anyway and the end product is worth it. I don't like cherries or pineapple so this is a grea alternative. Thank you.

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
I must have done something wrong. The taste of the caramel was very good but I had a really hard time getting the popcorn coated. The paper bag didn't work well for me. Most of the popcorn stuck together in small balls and every now and then you will get a huge piece of hard caramel (not that that is a bad thing really.) We'd have huge dentist bills if we ate this that often. Thanks!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
I made this last night with some penne pasta and a salad. This was quite greasy even after using the bread on bottom. I drained off the grease and the meatloaf itself was so good. Thank you!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
These came out light and fluffy. They would be perfect except for the salt. I think the amount of salt called for is way too much. I didn't read the reviews first, taking this straight out of the All Recipes cookbook. Next time I will definitely cut the salt down to 1/2 because they are too salty to eat as is.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
I just made these today. Some are still baking and my two boys love them. They are so easy to work with and taste great. I made angels and gingerbread men and got 21 out of the recipe as is. They look sooo cute!! Thanks so much.
