Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2005
I made this today for the first time as I only have used boxed mixes in the past. I cannot say enough about this cake. It is by far perfect. Fudgy and moist, sooo flavorful without being too sweet. I confess that I didn't "make" the frosting and used dark chocolate canned frosting but it was still amazing. You have to try this recipe!! This is a keeper for sure.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: May 31, 2005
I made this recipe last night and it was pretty good. I used 2 cups of strawberries and two ripe bananas. I also sprinkled some cinnamon sugar on top prior to baking. It came out pretty good, and I am sure with all strawberries it would have been better. The loaves looked like they were sinking in the middle but they eventually evened out. Perfect amount of sweetness and very moist. It did take a bit longer somewhere around an hour and 20 minutes. I would make this again.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: May 31, 2005
I couldn't stand brussel sprouts---until this recipe. These are soooo yummy. I cooked them until they were golden brown and they were crunchy and sweet on the outside nice and soft on the inside. I ate the whole pound myself!! I plan to use this recipe again and again!.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
After all the previous reviews I couldn't wait to try these. That being said, I didn't think they were excellent- but they were good. I found that they tasted better a couple of days later. My family really loved these so maybe it was me. The batter was really yummy, and they turned out beautiful. I would make these again if they were requested- but not on my own. :)

Fluffy Canadian Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2006
These were fantastic! So light and fluffy I didn't notice an overly eggy taste I thought they were by far the best pancakes I have ever had and I hate pancakes. In face I am off to make some now!

Amish Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
I have never ever liked meatloaf until I made this one. I used townhouse crackers ( one sleeve and 6 additional crackers), I halved the brown sugar in the meat mixture and used precooked bacon but left everything else the same. Everyone raved over it! It was so moist and flavorful I was shocked. I cooked mine for almost 2 hours ( free formed into a loaf in a roasting pan) and drained the grease before addding the glaze. I cannot wait to have a sandwich later with this! Thanks!!

I made this for a party and it was delicious! Everyone proclaimed it delicious and wants the recipe. It couldn't be easier! Thanks for a quick fool proof recipe.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
These are extremely easy and give you that cookie fix in a pinch. I used crunchy peanut butter as that's all I had, definitely needed more time to bake. I would say I baked them around 12 or so minutes. The bottoms were nicely golden brown. A chewy lovely texture but a tad on the sweet side. I would reduce the sugar to maybe 3/4 cup next time. Will make again for sure!

Baked Onion Dip I

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
I thought this was a good tasting speedy dip to throw together. It had a nice mild onion cheesy creamy taste to it. I used all mayo before reading reviews and it is a little greasy. I blotted some up with a paper towel but I think next time I will do the 8oz of sour cream, a brick of cream cheese and enough mayo to equal the two cups. I used jarlsberg cheese for mine and it gave it a slightly sweet nutty flavor. I added a tiny bit of garlic salt and some cracked black pepper for more flavor. Good recipe! Thanks :)

Polish Cabbage Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
I made this tonight and it was to easy to be that good. The only change I made was that I used one whole mayan sweet onion in place of the red onions. This had a nice mild taste which made a great side dish to fresh polish sausage. If you are looking for something with a strong flavor this may not be for you. I will definitely make this again and again!

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
I make this all the time. I did change it, I have used rotisserie chicken, left out the dressing and didn't bake it. I just soften the cream cheese in the microwave and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Mine is never greasy and I think it tastes better at room temperature.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2006
Wow! This was a ten star recipe for sure. I used fresh pumpkin puree I made last night and I followed other reviewers suggestions to use one cup of brown sugar and two cups of white sugar. I also added a sprinkling more of each spice as I like this spiced more. This baked up in about 80 minutes ( I used one 9x5 inch loaf pan and the the remainder I made a tiny loaf from)and was perfectly golden brown. The top had a slight crunch to it and the inside was moist and fluffy. This beats out any other quick bread I normally make from a mix!! Yum thanks :)

Pumpkin Puree

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2006
I made this last night after I carved our pumpkin for the seeds. I roasted the seeds but didn't want to toss the rest so I decided to make something out of it. This recipe came in handy. It made a wonderful pumpkin bread! thanks

Bagel and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
Well I am the exception as I didn't like this at all. I found the onion to be waaay to overpowering ( I would either use half the amount or not at all) and that was about all you could taste. It was heavy, and tasted like a spongy bagel. I won't be making this again even if it did look beautiful it left alot to desire taste wise. Thanks anyway

Lazy Pierogi

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
My family has been making this for forever. We do however make it different. When simmering the saukraut we add a couple of tablespoons of sugar to cut the sharpness of the kraut. I also never use cream of anything soup in mine, it surely isn't authentic with the soup in it.

Oreo® Cookie Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
This was a very good layered dessert. A bit time consuming as each layer is done seperatly but when done in a clear dish looks lovely. I used one box of pudding and one and a half blocks of cream cheese ( 12 oz total) and it wasn't tangy at all. I would go with the full two next time. I also would double the pudding amount ( 2 boxes and four cups of milk). I had plenty of cookies to cover the 9x13 inch pan with reserving one cup for on top. I crushed the cookies in a ziplock bag- they were piecy and gave a great texture to the dish. Mine was definitely firm enough to be cut into squares and held it's shape wonderfully, so not sure why some people said it was runny. I made it with chocolate pudding but may try vanilla with golden oreos next time. I plan to make this again and again! Thanks :)

Onion Rings

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
Not bad but not great. The batter coated and stayed on the onions well. This is my first time deep frying but the recipe worked well. It lacked any real flavor it tasted just like the recipe says. I liked the slightly sweet flavor but everytime I had a bite I couldn't help but think it was lacking spices. I probably won't try this *exact* recipe again but may try and "imprve" it by replacing the water with beer and adding salt, pepper and maybe some additional spices. Thanks

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
I made this today and with some changes and it was excellent. I thawed the hash browns in a bowl in the microwave for about three minutes ( as mine were frozen when I wanted this and they seem to cook better as well), I used one whole stick of margerine melted, one whole container of sour cream( 16oz), omitted the onion ( overpowering) and the salt (soup and cheese both have enough). I mixed the soup, sour cream, shredded cheese, potatoes, margerine, pepper and a little bit of milk together until mixed. The milk makes it more creamy and less dry. I baked at 400 degrees in a very well greased pan ( grease grease grease the pan as this will stick bad--trust me on this) covered with foil for 30 minutes. I then melted a couple of tablespoons of margerine and mixed in a couple of handfuls of crushed corn flakes ( don't really need the extra margerine but I like it so I use it :)) remove foil from pan and sprinkle on top. Bake 10 more minutes or until cornflakes are well browned. This was delicious with the changes I made and next time I think I will use a can of cheddar cheese soup ( or southwestern cheddar soup) instead of the cream of chicken the recipe calls for. Granted these aren't the healthiest changes but I would rather eat a small amount of good rich food than a lot of so-so tasting stuff!

Amy's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
I made these tonight with white chocolate chips and craisins. It made a little over 5 dozen ( used a melon baller instead of a tsp) and they are so good. Crispy edges, chewy insides sooo good! I am making them again tomorrow with semi sweet chips. Thanks for a great recipe!

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
This was a very good recipe. This was on the sweet side, so if you don't tend to go for sweet meats this may not be for you. The only changes I made were omitting the salt, doubling the sauce and I used bone in chicken breats. Next time I will use premade frozen breaded chicken fingers ( tyson) and pour the sauce over and bake. Less messy! Good recipe :)
