Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Nauseatingly sweet. I added about 1/2 tsp. of salt because I like my chocolate chip cookies with salt. I also used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar. That made them perfect. I melted a 12-oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips with 2 Tbsp. Crisco, and dipped and drizzled all the balls. They were really good. The kids went nuts over RAW COOKIE DOUGH!!!!!

Boston Cream Pie Minis

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
These were so good and easy to make. The only thing I'll do different next time is the chocolate on top. Maybe condensed milk and chocolate chips would be better. The chocolate got hard in the fridge and it made it hard to bite them. Overall the taste was outstanding.

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Let me start by saying I don't like bananas and I've never made bread pudding. In fact, the only bread pudding I've ever eaten is at Oaklawn Race Track in Hot Springs, Arkansas, which is famous for its bread pudding. The bar was set very high, needless to say.... This bread pudding turned out perfect. I made it exactly as written, except--as others suggested--I used 1/2 cup chocolate chips. It's February, and I'm already planning my Thanksgiving dinner around it. I also topped it with Creme Anglais, which was the perfect touch. UPDATE: Once I used the whole amount of chocolate chips and it ruined it. DON'T FORGET TO HALF THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS.

Creme Anglaise I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Good flavor, but it was yellow. That kinda grossed me out for some reason. I should have read reviews prior to making, because it didn't specify what level of heat or how long it should take to thicken. No harm though. I cooked it on medium and after mixing the egg mixture back into the cream, it took about 3 minutes to thicken. It turned out a perfect consistency.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Normally, I would never do a negative review when I changed a recipe. I'm doing this one so that future users will know what NOT to do when making this recipe.... I used Italian bread crumbs but omitted the parsley and oregano. I also used about a half a teaspoon of salt because other reviewers said it was bland. Everything else I did as written, and it just was not good. Way too salty. Maybe I caked too much stuff on the chicken, I don't know. Hope this helps avoid future disasters, but I won't be making it again either way.

Chicken Stuffed Peppers with Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Outstanding! I never in a million years would have thought I could make authentic Mexican, but it turned out really good. I was reluctant to add the chocolate, so I tried it without first. Let me tell you, the chocolate makes the sauce. It does not taste like chocolate, just authentic mole sauce. I will use this recipe again. The flavors blended beautifully with spanish rice and cheese dip and chips.

Fiesta Fudge Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
These super fudgie cookies are pretty good--if you eat them within about 24 hours. So rich they'll make you pucker. I made them exactly as written, except I cooked them for an extra minute. They don't look like they've cooked at all when you look at them. Just trust that they're done. I touched the tip of the kiss and lightly pushed it down rather than tapping the cookie. They really need to be eaten in about a day or so, because they get dry pretty fast. Oh, and here's a little tip. Don't refrigerate the dough between batches. It will dry up and not make good balls.

Peanut Butter Pie VIII

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
To. Die. For. Seriously, like restaurant quality. Very very sweet. Made it exactly as the recipe reads, except I only left enough PB crumbles to sprinkle on top of the meringue, maybe 1/4 cup is all you need. The rest goes in the pie. Awesome.

Candy Corn Bark

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
I made this for the teachers on Parent-Teacher conference day at school, and it was a big hit. Teachers I didn't even know were asking me for the recipe. A couple of tips, though: Break the oreos by hand. I put them in a zip lock, and they became a smudgey mess. I also used m&m's instead of raisins. Vanilla bark doesn't drizzle easily, so I had to spread with a spoon, but that to me is what will make the best finished product. It's easy to melt the big cubes in the microwave (it did require two packages, though). I can't wait to make it again with Christmas candies!

Pork Chop and Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
This was really good with a little tweaking. I normally don't review something I change up, but this turned out well, and I wanted to make these suggestions: I tossed the sliced potatoes with salt, pepper, mushroom soup, onions, cheese, and a few tablespoons of melted bacon grease (bacon grease may just be what made it so good). Skipped the milk. Just wasn't necessary. I placed the chops in a casserole dish and dumped the potato mixture on top. Covered with foil, and cooked in the oven for about an hour, until the potatoes were tender.

Grilled Chicken and Portobello Lasagna Rollups

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I was gonna give this three stars until I ate it leftover. It was so much better the second day, it was like a new meal. Okay, here's the thing. It was too dry. Just my preference, I guess. I like sloppy saucy lasagna. This may have been perfect if I had added a jar of alfredo (or even marinara) to the chicken/spinach mixture. Maybe even mix some mozzarella, or substitute cottage cheese for the ricotta. That being said, the second day, I poured about half a jar of marinara on top and put it back in the oven, and it was awesome. I was going to dump the leftovers, but now I'm looking forward to having it for dinner again.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
This couldn't have been any easier. And just as good as the homemade dumplings I usually roll out. The only change I made was one can of cream of celery in place of one of the chicken soups.

Cornbread Dressing I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I do believe I've found the perfect dressing recipe. I love the little touch of hard boiled eggs and ground sausage. Went easy on the sage, as I'm not a big fan of it. The biscuits and cornbread were a perfect combination. Everything just went together perfectly.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
The best cookies I have ever eaten. I used to go to the mall and get these at Mrs. Fields. I haven't had one in years. I did use a little bit more salt than the recipe called for, but other than that I followed it to a tee. Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Can't wait to make again, seeing as how I ate most of them, and my kids didn't get any.

Mexican Zucchini Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
This soup was really rich and flavorful. Like others, I used a can of rotel instead of chile peppers and Mexican tomatoes. I also used about 4-6 ounces of Velveeta because I didn't want it to be like cheese dip. As a result, I ended up thickening it with corn starch. I used it as a side with pulled pork tacos. For leftovers, I may add some shredded chicken to it.

Creamy Coconut Dip

Mexican Lasagna Chip Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Pretty good dip. Needs more cream cheese and less meat and beans though. That's just me, I like gooey cheesy. I liked it for a change of pace from regular cheese dip. It made enough I was able to make it on two different days. The first day I layered it as directed. The next day, I spread the cream cheese in a pie plate, then the meat and beans mixture, then cheese. I really liked it best that way. It just went together more smoothly.
