Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This is the best broccoli salad there is. My grandma used to make this and I was so happy when I found the same exact recipe. I always double the dressing because I like to make this the day before I'm going to serve it and I noticed that the broccoli really absorbs the dressing so it is good to make extra for the next day.

Bob's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
Phenomenal. This was ridiculously good. I have tried several of the other Blue Cheese Dressing recipes on here and this one is the best in my opinion. I have to admit to eating this straight out of the bowl with a big old spoon. Gross maybe, but one taste and you'll be doing the same. Only things I changed were to leave out the parsley, because I didn't have any and add a pinch of garlic powder. Blue Cheese stupor coming your way!

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
All the great reviews pretty much say it all. I used egg roll wrappers and sprayed with cooking spray and baked in the oven at 425 for 15 minutes. They were perfect. Everyone thought they were fried because they tasted so good and crunchy. Made everything else exactly like recipe. Can't wait to make again.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
These were wonderful! I didn't have any yogurt in the fridge, so I substituted sour cream. Other than that I followed it exactly and they were yummy! They are the perfect consistency and when I make them again I will use sour cream, because everyone loved how they turned out. A winning recipe.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
There isn't much to be said that hasn't already been said before. This recipe couldn't be any more delicious. It is perfect the way it is, but I also experiment with the fruits in the salsa based on what is fresh and in season. The cinnamon chips are something that I make just as a snack. I have served this over and over and people always want the recipe. It is perfect as an appetizer or a light dessert or even a snack. Thank you for this recipe!

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
This stuff should be illegal! It was a hit. I am not a huge dessert person, but I loved loved loved this recipe. It reminds me of the one my grandma used to make. To make it a little lighter I used Neufatchel cheese instead of cream cheese, sugar free pudding mix, fat free cool whip and 3 cups nonfat milk. It was still super rich even with those modifications. I thought it was fabulous.

Cheesy Brat Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
I loved this. It was really hearty and flavorful. Yes, it feels like you have a brick in your stomach if you eat too much, but this is comfort food, don't expect to feel like you ate a celery stick. =) I added a whole sautéed onion and 2 garlic cloves. I also had to add more than 2/3 cup water because it was a little to thick.

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This is beyond fabulous. It is a little more work than a standard dessert but tastes like a million bucks. And that's what it'll cost for all the ingredients too! Just kidding. Made this for a large get together and had many people say that this was not only the BEST tiramisu they have ever had in their life but the BEST dessert they have ever had. A note on the recipe: It calls for way more ladyfingers than you will need if you are using a spring form pan. I couldn't find enough at the store and ended up making them from scratch(now that is a pain!) but made too many because of the incorrect amount. I would say you need about 16 oz worth of lady fingers not 24 if you are using a spring form pan. Make this recipe if you want people to think you are a fabulous cook and want to give you a diamond necklace because of it!

Broccoli and Onion Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
This tasted like macaroni and cheese, if macaroni some how turned into vegetables. It's not the healthiest dish, but is really good and I could definitely see serving it for a holiday. I did change it and used a bag of frozen squash, a bag of frozen italian vegetable medley and a bag of frozen tri color peppers in place of the broccoli. It was so easy and yummy. I also sautéed the onions before hand instead of subjecting them to boiling. The sauce is a great base but is missing salt and seasoning! I added some Lawry's salt, fresh ground pepper and garlic powder as I cooked the sauce.

Antipasto Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Who knew salad could be exciting? This is wonderful! I did everything as per the recipe but added: jar of marinated quartered artichoke hearts, whole peppercinis, thinly sliced red onion, julienned pepperoni and omitted the chives. When I first made the dressing I thought it tasted weird. The next day it was right on. I tossed this without dressing and let people put it on themselves as I had doubled this recipe for a large function. I served the recipe dressing, good seasonings Italian dressing, and homemade ranch. It was wonderful with all three but I did prefer the original recipe dressing. I was asked to make this again for something coming up.

Chocolate Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
You can't get much easier than this! I used a jar of Hershey's hot fudge for the top that I microwaved for 30 seconds in place of the frosting. I made this the day before I served it. This was devoured. I heard complaints of stomach aches because they ate so much. Ah, just what a cook wants to hear. =)

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
Soooooooo good. I had some really ripe frozen bananas that I wanted to use up. This was the perfect venue for them to shine. I added 4 bananas instead of 2 and upped the chocolate chips to 2 cups. I also added cocoa powder to make it more chocolately. Served warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream... this is what dessert should be.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
Agree with other posts. This is a hit. I covered the bacon and smokies in brown sugar separately and then rolled again once together. I prepped them all the night before so all I had to do was pop them in the oven before time to serve.

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This frosting was a life saver when I ran out of store bought stuff. And may I say that I will not be going back to store bought as my husband said this is the best frosting he has ever tasted. I did make an adjustment though that seemed to tame the sweetness and give it a better consistency. I added 4 heaping tablespoons of nutella. It was fabulous. The subtle hazelnut flavor and less sweet nutella chocolate make this frosting perfect. I could eat a whole bowl!

Chicken Kisses

Reviewed: May 25, 2005
My family really liked this easy to make BBQ recipe. If you know how to cut stuff up, then you can handle this recipe. I added about 4-5 Tablespoons of BBQ sauce and a little olive oil in each packet and it came out more moist than the recipe. Great to prepare ahead of time.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
Oh wow was this good. I, like other reviewers did tweak the recipe a bit and used this as a base. I actually used three large frozen chicken breasts(yes straight from the freezer!) and put them in the slow cooker on high for two hours with a can of chicken broth, lawrys salt, fresh ground pepper and Old Bay. Once they were thawed and beginning to cook, I added in the onion and condensed soup. Boy did that smell good! I listened to some of the reviews and added the biscuits( I only used one container) about 2 hours before I wanted to serve. From the frozen chicken going in the crockpot to everything being taken out cooked to perfection it was about 6.5 hours. My family loved it and asked if I would make it again next week.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
This was fantastic! I substituted gorgonzola and apples for the roquefort and pears, but it was still great. The dressing is really good too.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Easy, rich and delicious. I did end up using two jars of hot fudge and only added peanut butter to the middle layer. Instead of topping with peanuts, I topped with Heath Bar bits. Everyone really enjoyed this.

Blue Cheese Dip II

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This was very good. Had a deep flavor. Not like standard onion dip. I served this with Buffalo flavored kettle chips. Great contrast. It was a huge hit. Thanks!
