Easy Soda Cracker Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
These were OK. A lot like the seven layer bars I am used to. I didn't think the crackers added anything but a layer. They provided no flavor. I thought there was going to be a salty kick to the sweet, but there wasn't. I'll just stick to the regular graham cracker crust next time. I found the crust part bland.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
Recipe as is wouldn't be nearly sweet enough for a "sugar" cookie. I added about 1/2-3/4cup more sugar and it still tasted like a bread cookie. I found the dough really hard to work with and had to use a lot of flour each time I rolled them out. I just didn't find them to be good at all. Guess I'm the minority-won't use again

Toasted Coconut, Pecan, and Caramel Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
Interesting recipe. I think it's the type of recipe you just have to try to know whether you will like it or not. When I first tasted it after letting it set overnight, I thought, "I don't know if my guests will like it", but they did-loved it. I recommend using as much sugar free/light things as you can. I used fat free sweetened condensed milk, light cool whip, light cream cheese, reduced sugar caramel. It was still a little sweet. Next time I may use sugar free cool whip and see if there is a reduced sugar milk. DEFINATELY let it set overnight or even serve it frozen-I don't think it would freeze solid. I let some chocolate chips melt on the hot crust when it first got out of the oven. I loved the chocolate tasted but it made the crust really hard to cut through when firm. Next time I may melt some chocolate sauce and drizzle with the caramel. I liked the addition of the chocolate taste.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
Excellent and easy recipe. Don't be turned off by the list of ingredients. I actually just put it all in a pot and let cook for a while. Used a rotiessere chicken from the grocery and boiled the remainder for stock. Next time, I won't use the whole tomatoes, just diced tomatoes with jalepeno peppers. I also would half the amount of water. I added about 1-2 TBsp tomato paste-don't know if it made a real difference. Served with cheddar bay biscuits with monteray instead of cheddar cheese and taco seasoning mixed with butter on top.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
Very fitting name! Wonderful recipe. I think they are better eaten right awya-not quite as good left over. I used buttermilk and think I had to add a little more. About 1/4 cup more? At first I thought they were too soupy but they came out just right!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
Definately delicious! I didn't even do the whole stick of butter-I used about 3/4 of the stick. Didn't have enough raspberry jam so I used brambleberry or someother kind. They were both great. I think you could used just about any kind of jam. I drizzled melted white chocolate on some of them. Both ways were great!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
Really easy, REALLY good. I was skeptical at first. I mean could they really be as good as red lobster? They were ALMOST there. A little more dense to me than red lobster. The topping was great! Served these with quiche and salad. Will make these over and over again. Filed in my "keeper" cookbook

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
I enjoyed these. I thought they were actually going to be a little softer. I did add the 1/2 tsp or so of salt and about 1 1/2 tsp vanilla. I still prefer "Absolutely the best chocolate chip cookies" from this site with 1/2 butter and 1/2 crisco. I like a crispy/chewy cookie more, but these were good. Definately needs the salt. Will make again for those who prefer a softer cookie.

Cauliflower and Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2006
Agree with Karen-NOTHING to rave about. As I was making it I realized it was just the vegs with cheese poured over them. I mean nothing terrible or disgusting, but bland and flavorless. I will not be making again.

Ricardo's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
I have accepted the fact that I just can't do yeast. Because of this, it was a little tough. I don't have a bread machine so maybe that was it. It was flavorful, and despite my incompotence nice and bready at times. I used it with calzones. Next time I will decrease the sugar a little.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
I really liked these. They reminded me of our usual bran muffin recipe but without all the oil. The only problem was they stuck to the muffin cup. I might just try them in the tin next time. Very moist!

Cranberry Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
Not sure what all the raving is about. These needed double the amount of sugar. They were VERY bland! I'm not looking for a cake, but they definately need to be a little sweeter in order to be like a muffin. Bread is sweeter than these were. I'll keep looking

Absolutely the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
I did find these to be the ABSOLUTE best! I do have to say i used 1 stick of butter and 1/2 cup of crisco (1 cup all together) I think they are best if you make them right away. I found them to be slightly better then than refrigerating and then cooking. The batter was like a blanket over the chips, kind of flat, crispy, and chewey in the middle. I used m&ms cause I had a lot. I also used the base of the cookie recipe and added white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and pecans (without semisweet chocolate) They were delicious too. This is the recipe I will be using from here on out.

Asparagus Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2006
I love the taste of these two together. Balsamic is also a great flavor to try with the two. Sometimes I steam the asparagus and then pop it in the stove with cheese on top just till melted. Can't go wrong if you love asparagus

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
Really good and different! I don't use the feta and instead combine the mozzarella, ricotta, and parmesan and layer them with the other ing. Next time I may add some alfredo sauce to that mixture for some extra fat and taste. Make sure you drain the spinach well. I also add mushrooms since they don't overpower and they go well with the combination .Takes a little time but worth it. Another keeper.

Souvlaki

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
I love this recipe. I leave off the oregano. The taste is not overpowering, it's easy, and leaves meat tasty and tender. You can whip it up in no time and keep the sauce in the frig if you have some leftover. Excellent recipe. Definately a keeper

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
This was really easy and I liked not having to use egg whites. I used other reviewers suggestions and added 2 Tbsp of milk-I think this was a little much -my icing was runny and ran into the dents in my cookies. Next time I will do maybe 1 TBsp and go from there. Overall it was easy and tasty.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
These were ok. Nothing great that I can't live without. I think just a chocolate cupcake with frosting would be better. I LOVE cheesecake but didn't like the cream cheese with this. It was too much trouble for not enough taste

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
I agree with some other reviewers. The cookies, once refrigerated, where crispy on the ouside and puffed up and didn't get done on the inside. They didn't spread much and I agree they were hard once they cooled. The only reason I am giving these 4 stars is b/c my mom loved them and I did use 1/2 crisco and 1/2 butter. I think they are 3 stars. I will keep searching for that perfect cc cookie recipe.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
NOTHING special. Taste just like it sounds, an orange flavored cake mix. Which I guess some people like. I like more variety/homemade
