Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
OK--given my screen name-I cannot believe I have never made a cookie cake! This was quite enjoyable. I did add in 1 tsp of baking powder as well and I got a little crazy adding in all different flavor chips. YUMMY! Now I am on a roll and made one adding in 3/4 cup peanut butter and milk, white, semi and peanut chips, and mini m&m's.-HOLY GOODNESS! Oh and for a fun treat for a friends b-day I saved enough cookie dough to make a smiley face with and added in a few tbsp of cocoa ..and after spreading the regular dough into the pan..I plopped the chocolate dough into a smiley face figure on top and just patted it down alittle. It was wasy cute.

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
This is a four for me because as is it was bland. I had to keep adding my fav spices to flavor it up a bit..and extra parm cheese. I loved the whole concept with the turkey sausage and fresh veggies.it just needed some extra seasoning. Try adding a few dashes of paprika, kosher salt, pepper, sugar, minced onion..then it becomes quit tasty.

Cream Puff Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
DELICIOUS! I make cream puffs all the time and never thought to go this route. I too spread some melted chocolate(1 cup semi sweet chips mixed with a tsp of butter) onto cooled crust. For the pudding mixture I whipped cream cheese then slowly added in liquids-which I did 2 1/2 cups milk, 2 1/2 cups heavy cream-much richer flavor-I thought the filling was too stiff-so that's why I added extra milk/heavy cream. Also for my taste preference I made fresh whipped cream(2 cups heavy cream, 3/4 cup conf sugar squirt of vanilla-whip til stiff peaks form) to top with and skipped the chocolate syrup. This turned into an decadent dessert that was sooo yummy.

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
10 stars for sure..This marinade was fabulous. The only changes were I doubled the recipe and added 3 limes opposed to two(for which I used a glass lemon juicer to get all the juice possible and the pulp), some zest from one lime and instead of garlic powder I went with a fresh clove minced and I also added in some fresh cilantro for our taste preference. Marinaded for 3 or so hours and I couldn't eat enough pieces. YUMMY! The perfect amount of lime and chili taste. Will be making often this summer. Thanks!

Vanilla Milkshake I

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
This was a good old fashioned basic vanilla milkshake. I did add more ice cream for thickness and only had 1% milk. I also got silly and added in a few tbsp of sugar to sweetened it up a littke bit. Is there such thing as a healthy milkshake..I think not so why not make it good and fattening...HEHE! DELICIOUS!

Sweetened Whipped Cream

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
I give this four stars because it needs a bit more sugar. I use more like 6 Tbsp. When I am making this for a trifle or a strawberry shortcake or even a cream pie topper..I usually make adding in the extar sugar. If I am just making to dunk my fruit or for my hot cocoa I leave as written. But whatever your taste buds prefer...you'll never go back to cool whip because this is so delicious! It does take 5 minutes to get a nice whip..so be patient and if you do have the time stick your paddles or bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes before whipping. I have even added in some cocoa to the conf sugar for some chocolate whipped cream.

Frog Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
I made these for my daughters preschool class and they were a big hit with the kids. I made as is and sprinkled green jimmies all over as well. I bought a few tubes of the different colored writing icing to make it easier to make the mouths and it worked perfect. The red mouths looked the best. Will make again in the future.

Coconut Cream Meringue Pie

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
This coconut cream alone is awesome. Very yummy! I added in a spinkle of coconut extract along with the vanilla to enhance the coconut flavor further. It is easier if you have someone help with adding the egg mixture in. To make sure the eggs do not scramble you need to whisk the mixture real fast and it is helpful to have someone else be there to pour it in while you mix. Also make sure you cook the mixture on the stove top as directed until nice and thick or you will get a watery cream pie. Will make again and again. The meringue top is great as well..I will try whipped topping on top instead next time and after that plain with toasted coconut on top. Will be keeping this in my recipe box.

Kitty Litter Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
This cake is just so WRONG!! hehe. My kids wanted to make a cake for the cats birthday and I stumbled across this funny recipe. What fun we had making it. After we sang to the cat my kids kept asking..mommy can we eat the poop now! I sure hope they do not go into school and tell their teachers that mommy served them poop last night. The only change was that I also added in a few drops of blue food coloring because our cat litter has blue and green specks in it. I needed more cookie crumbs as well to completely cover the top. More like one and a half packages. So much fun. Dont forget the pooper scooper-that was the funniest part. I laid mine on top with a few stray poops in it. So real looking!

Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
OOOOHHHH MYYYY! How deliciously chocolatey..Tonight for my third helping I def will be making some homemade whipped cream(1/2 cup heavy cream with a few tbsp conf sugar-whipped up nice) to add on top. It is great on its own but I do think it needs a little cream or vanilla ice cream on top. SOOO GOOD and decadent. For a true chocolate lover. Oh..I spent extra and used ghirardelli chocolate for mine which made it so much more fabulous.

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
Who would of thought sticking a beer can up a chicken's butt would create something so delicious. I felt like my chicken was giving birth when I pulled the can out..LOL! So good and yummy. I did put mine in a 8x8 glass dish and only melted half the butter to put in the beer can and the other half I softened and smeared over and under the skin and rubbed all my favorite spices all over that to give it a nice stick. I baked like others 350 for approx 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Basting every 1/2 hour. I did add in a splash of water to the dish bottom because when the butter started melting it did brown up the bottom of the dish. Perfecto.

Really Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
OOHH SOOO GOOOD! I used slightly less cream cheese and I did not have margarine so I used butter but just 3/4 of the stick. For my taste preference I didn't add in the garlic salt but some fresh garlic which I minced up extra extra fine. WOW what a dish thrown over some spinach fettuccine with some roasted chicken on top. Will keep this one in the good old box.

Corn Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
These are the bomb. I have made so many times. I adjust seasonings to my liking and heat up my electric skillet to a medium low tempature. I form the potato mixture into a big hamburger like patty- I put a dollop of butter with the oil and slow cook for like 10 minutes or so per side to get them nice and browned and nice and crispy. Before I flip them over I add on more pats of butter to the top. YUMMY!!! It's a meal within itself and are great reheated as well. I have even added in some shredded cheese for a cheesy corn potato pancake and that is still sitting on my hips..LOL!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
So moist and yummy! I rubbed softened butter on the turkey breast- on and under the skin and then added the onion mix on that. It stuck real nice. I also rubbed on a few of my favorite seasonings for my taste preference(pepper, salt, paprika, a touch of sugar and garlic powder) Cooked as directed and it was delicious. Don't pass it up. I also think there is no reason to add in chicken broth because the juices the turkey makes are plentiful. It would be way to much liquid if I had added in broth to start. I also basted mine every hour since I was home. YUM!

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I give this four stars just because I think a whole stick of butter is way too much and it left a puddle of grease on top. I cut sugar back to 1 1/2 cups and added in a tsp or so of cinnamon for taste preference. I also threw in the whole bag of butterscotch chips just so I didn't have half a bag hanging around. Great flavor and taste but I thing next time I will add half the butter and it would be a five star treat. I served warm with vanilla ice cream on top. YUM!

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
Have made this several times with only altering golden mushroom for the cream of mushroom(our taste preference) and I use the can of french onion soup opposed to the packet- DELICIOUS! EASY! QUICK! This past weekend I made for a party and had two crock pots going with two london broils in each. I used 2 cans french onion soup, 2 cans golden mushroom soup, 1 cup beef broth and a few splashes of red wine per crock(I forgot to buy the tomato soup-OOPS). This was my favorite variation so far and I thickened the sauce in the end by adding a tbsp of cornstarch to some beef broth(I had reserved some on the side-cannot use hot liquid to dilute cornstarch) Barely any leftovers. Will make again and again. OH and how can I forget..I usually pop in a clove or two of garlic as well. Not many recipes that I do not add garlic into.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
Yummy...I did 3/4 cup sour cream and 3/4 cup ricotta cheese(needed to use it up before it expired). I also shredded my provolone cheese since I bought a block of it. I layered starting with sauce at the bottom to avoid drying out the noodles(as others also wrote) and ended with a layer of mozzerella cheese since I like mine to have the cheese on top. I also used FRESH parmesan and romano cheeses (really makes a HUGE difference to use fresh). I never though sour cream would go well in this but it certainly did. I did make one batch with meat and one without and they were both equally great.

Pistachio Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
This dessert is a three-four as written but OFCOURSE it had potential so I took it to another level. I used two boxes of the pistachio pudding mix to enhance the flavor..one box barely tasted like pistachio. I also used half milk/half heavy cream when making the pudding. Such a richer flavor. I finely chopped some pistachios and added those into the pudding. I prefer homemade whipped cream opposed to cool whip so I did 2 cups heavy cream, 2/3 cup conf sugar and a squirt of vanilla and whipped that for 5 minutes and folded it into the pudding. People just LOVED it..but I do feel as did my happy eaters..that the chocolate topping wasn't necessary and kinda took away from the great flavors the pistachio and graham craker offered. Next time(yes there will be) I will just top with some fresh whipped cream. Do make a day ahead of time so the graham crackers get nice and soft.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
Very easy and delicious recipe. I wanted to cook in croc so this recipe seemed to be what would work best. I cooked on low for 10-11 hours and it was very good. Probably could have switched it to high for the last hour or so. Will save recipe for next year. I did add the packet of seasoning the meat came with and also added in a few extra peppercorns. Great for leftover sandwiches.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I can't believe I never rated this yet. I've made it so many times already. Five stars for sure as written. But ten with this variation when I dug in my cabinets for the ingredients and to my suprise I didn't have. I floured and browned the roast in skillet before putting in crockpot-also I didn't have onion mix(shocking) so I used 2 cans french onion soup with one can golden mushroom soup (which we like better then the cream of mushroom anyway) and a few splashes of leftover red wine and about 1/4 cup beef broth. Skipped the water since I added in extra soup and broth.-HOLY GOODNESS! We were fighting for leftover sandwiches the next day. Any which way is delicious. Great share.
