Chocolate Covered Cherries

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
These were awesome! I never thought I would ever be making chocolate covered cherries. I had no idea how the liquid got around the cherry. I made these as a Christmas gift for my parents, and it was loved by all. I just used the Wilton chocolate wafers (you can get at Wal-Mart, Michaels, JoAnns) in the candy/craft baking area. I melted them in a double boiler and they were terrific. After I had dipped them, I did go back and use a knife to spread more chocolate on the bottom and laid them on their side to harden quickly. That way I was able to avoid any leaking out the bottom. Thanks for a great recipe!

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I substituted natural applesauce for all of the oil. I also reduced the eggs to 3. Used 4 oz of cream cheese in the frosting and added some cinnamon while mixing. Yum!

Fried Pork Chop

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
These were great! I rinsed off and did not pat dry. I sprinkled on some garlic powder and onion powder before dredging in flour/salt/pepper mixture. Thanks for the great quick recipe!

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
I did not do this in a jar, but just baked the cookies instead. Since I was making some for others, I left out the nuts in case of allergies, and just added some extra craisins and white chocolate chips. So good! Thanks for the recipe!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
Very good! I also subbed 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice for the nutmeg and ginger in recipe. All else I kept the same. I made this pie twice, once I did not precook the pumpkin from the can with the other spices, and this time I did precook it per another reviewer. I thought they were great both times and really did not notice any difference. Thanks for the great recipe!

Apple Dumplings with Rich Cinnamon Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2014
Awesome! Added a little bit of nutmeg to the butter/sugar/cinnamon mixture in the apple. Also reduced the water to 1/2 a cup for the sauce. Best if you use small to medium-sized apples for this. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Pop Fly Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This was good. It seemed to make too much syrup for the popcorn, which I had measured and was more than 10 cups. I just popped one bag of popcorn that already had a little butter/salt. Then next time I will add more popcorn - maybe 3 more cups as it is difficult to cut the syrup ingredients by 1/3 and I think that will nicely coat the popcorn without all the excess. As I originally prepared it, it was like a huge popcorn ball that was difficult to separate. I think that adding more popcorn will help. It tasted better after sitting a day in a ziploc bag. My husband and I enjoyed it, but it would have been hard to share at a party unless you did make them into popcorn balls (that is unless the popcorn to syrup ratio is changed, then hopefully that would help). 12/17/08 - new note: I accidently substituted baking powder for cream of tartar and it turned it out just as good and was set in about 10 min. I got great comments on it and my whole family loved it as well!

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
These were great! I did add 1 tsp vanilla into the cream puff mixture as others have suggested. I also baked on parchment paper. I split the pudding into 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 white chocolate. Both were very tasty! Thanks for a great recipe!

Thin Mint Crackers

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
I am rating this 5 stars due to the change from Ritz crackers to chocolate graham crackers. Of course they didn't look as pretty as the round Ritz, but the crunch and taste really was like the Girl Scout cookies. I just wish there was round chocolate wafers that I could use. I couldn't find any in the cookie isle. I made these as an extra cookie for Thanksgiving and they were a hit.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
These turned out great! I didn't need to add much butter, and I surprised my mother-in-law, who didn't think people would like them with sour cream and cream cheese. They did! The flavor is so mild from the sour cream, and no flavor from the cream cheese. They were just nice and creamy, and best of all done in advance to free up space in the kitchen to make the last minute dishes for Thanksgiving. I plan on using this for all the big holiday get togethers in the future. Thanks for the recipe!

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
This was delicious. I followed the recipe and did as other reviewers did by rubbing salt/powder mixture into chicken breasts and browning each side a couple min. in butter. Then added can chicken broth and cooked the chicken the rest of the way in the broth. Removed chicken when done and whisked in 1/4 c. flour and cooked until thickened, which only took a few min. Added cooked egg noodles to sauce and served with chicken. So easy and good. Thanks for the great recipe!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
Very tasty! I also doubled the sauce per other reviewers, but did not have enough room in the pie to use it all. Next time I will use a deep dish pie crust. I used half and half in place of 1/2 the milk. I used 1/2 c. onions, but same amount butter and it took a while to make the onions translucent. My veggies were ready way before my sauce, so next time I will start the sauce first. I also used Pillsbury refridgerated pie crusts and brushed egg white on the bottom and prebaked for 7 min. I forgot to poke some holes, so some parts were getting puffed up before I took it out. It took some time to make, but it was well worth it. I love tasty hearty meals like this for cold nights. Thanks for the recipe!

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
This was a great meal! I was a little skeptical with the crescent rolls. Just had a hard time wrapping my mind around taco meat in bread, but I started the meat and discovered I had already used my crescent rolls. I ended up using bread rolls that I divided in half across the dish and baked them and all turned out great. For left overs I heated it up with some salsa on top and enjoyed that as well. Thanks for the great and simple recipe!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
This cake is amazing! Per other reviewers, I did change the oil to 1/2 c oil, 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce. I also used 1 box vanilla and 1 box cheesecake pudding. I replaced the walnuts with chopped pecans. Because the pieces are smaller, my kids don't mind it that way. Husband gave 10 stars (out of 5)! So unbelievably easy that this is going to be my go to coffee cake recipe from now on. I made 2. One in a bundt pan. Start with a sprinkling of cinnamon, and then did batter, cinnamon mix, batter, cinnamon mix and finished with batter. Turned out beautifully. Also made one at the same time in a 9x13. I thought I had done about 1/2 batter 1st, but after putting 1/2 cinnamon mix and the rest of batter, I could just barely cover the cinnamon mixture. I thought this cake was ruined, but the cinnamon mixture did sink quite a bit, so the one on top of the cake was not too close to the other, and it was great. Thanks for this amazing recipe!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
So good! I did not do pork tenderloin, but had an almost 5 lb cut that was 6 grams fat/serving, which was in between the tenderloin and shoulder butt. It was on sale for about $10. I cut some onion and laid in on the bottom of the slow cooker bag. Then put the pork on top and sprinkled with garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and seasoned salt, then covered the entire thing with root beer. Flipped 3.5 hrs later and then about an hr before eatting, I drained bag and put in a new one. I skimmed off the fat and then shredded and covered with Sweet Baby Rays bbq sauce. Also added more seasoned salt, pepper and onion powder to taste. 5+ stars!!! Made enough for 15+ sandwiches.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Amazing! Company loved this! I doubled the peach part, with the exception of the sugar. I kept that at 1/4 c. each. I also used 8 tsp. cornstarch for the double batch (as my peaches were really ripe and juicy) and baked in 9x13 pan. I tripled the topping for the 9x13 pan, and had the perfect amount. The taste was amazing. Thank you for this great recipe!

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Great bread! I also added one diced Granny Smith apple after I mixed everything together. In the mix I followed other reviewers and put 1 1/2 packets apple/cinnamon oatmeal, and then for the top I mixed 1/8 cup packed brown sugar with 1 teas. melted butter, 1 teas. flour and the remaining half a packet of oatmeal and sprinkled this on top per other reviewers. I baked the full 60 min, and it was moist and full of flavor. I thought it was a tad sweet even, but the rest of the family all said 5 stars! Thank you for this recipe!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
So good, and I was never a cheesecake fan. I did substitute heavy cream for the milk in the recipe. I put it in the oven as stated and put the raised cookie sheet with some water on the lower oven shelf. I left in oven for close to 6 hours after baking, and no cracks. It was perfect! Oh, I also just used a graham cracker crust recipe from the already crushed graham cracker box, and it was just fine. Thanks for the recipe!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
So good! I followed directions but reduced the chocolate chips by 1/2 c. After mixing I refrigerated the dough for 1 1/2 hours before baking. I leveled off dough into 1/4 c. measuring cup, but only ended up with 14 cookies. They took longer to bake (probably because the dough was chilled) You will probably want to double this recipe as you will love them and they go fast!
