Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
I really was a little skeptical about trying this using the hot fudge topping as an ingredient-but I am glad I did. What a great frosting. I used heavy cream instead of milk and I used Dove-dark chocolate topping and it was so yummy. I put it on the "fabulous fudge chocolate cake" recipe from this site and WOW what a chocolate fix for a chocolate lover! I agree with another reviewer that it doesn't set up well on a hot day with high humidity-so I stuck the whole cake in the fridge after I iced it and it set up well. I took it out 20 minutes before I served it and it was great..Try and make a day or two in advance because chocolate anything tastes better a few days later when the great chocolate flavors come out!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2006
CAN I GIVE IT 10 STARS!!!! I love trying out any tomato cream recipes and this is def the BEST ever! I used fresh chopped up basil instead of dried, freshly grated parmesan cheese(it really makes a difference in taste to use fresh), and half and half instead of milk(ran out of milk) and I also added in 2 tsp cornstarch as well for I like a thicker sauce and I through it over angel hair spaghetti...YYUUMMYY!! Can't wait to add chicken, or shrimp, or mushrooms, or sun dried tomatoes..the options are endless with this sauce..ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
Restaurant quality for sure! First I marinated my chicken(6 breasts) in buttermilk for a few hours as I do with all my chicken(1cup milk 1 TBS vinegar or lemon juice if no buttermilk) for that extra moistness. Then I mixed 1/2 cup flour with 1 tbsp paprika and dredged chicken in before frying. I did it all in one skillet-why dirty more than one pan! I sauteed garlic in 4tbsp butter(instead of oil) on low heat then I raised heat to med and added chicken which I cut into strips and browned on all sides. Then I added sundried tomatoes and 1 cup mushrooms and sauteed a little longer. I followed others and doubled sauce so I added 1 cup chick broth and 1 cup white wine(for a greater flavor) salt, pepper and reduced to low, covered and cooked for 30 minutes. I removed chicken added heavy cream with 2 tbsp cornstarch(I like thicker sauce)and fresh basil and cooked to my desired thickness then added chicken back in and tossed on fettuccini. WOW what a dish..Yummy! Fattening but a much deserved treat.-don't pass it up!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
This was a great coleslaw recipe. The buttermilk with the white wine vinegar makes a delicious flavor. I adjusted the vinegar to my liking and added more salt and pepper and didn't add in all the sugar. I always wondered how restaurants make their coleslaw and now I know. So creamy and yummy. Will be making this again and again. There are so many good add-ins to try...pineapple chunks, dijon mustard, paprika etc...

Speedy Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
WOW...I never would have thought something so easy to make would be so YUMMY!! Very easy for my 3 and 4 yr olds to make and they LOVED eating the end result. Ofcourse one of them likes chocolate ice cream so I just added a few squirts of choco syrup to her batch. Great little project for them with a delicious result.

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.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
Very Yummy!! I did make the night before in bread machine and refrigerated overnight after I cut them. I took out in the morning and let sit for 45 minutes before cooking. I would suggest placing buns in 2 dishes- 1 is too tight of a squeeze and they get larger when cooking. I cooked 375 for 20 minutes..as per others suggestions. I didn't need to make extra icing..there was plenty for all the buns. I did however use an extra teaspoon of cinnamon. A nice treat.

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!

Blueberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
This was a great recipe. Only change for me was to add about a cup of sour cream(which I mixed the baking soda into) just because I like my breads super moist. My cooking time was also longer than 35 minutes..more like 45-50 minutes for two loaves. Oh and in one loaf I added walnuts for grandma who loves nuts. YUM!

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
These were very delicious. I did have to make my own buttermilk with milk and lemon juice(5 cups milk-5 tbsp lemon juice)..but I cant wait to make them again when I go out and get some pre-made buttermilk. I bet they will be even yummier. It made a ton of pancakes which I like because I freeze the leftovers for a quick and easy breakfast in the morning for the fam. Pop in the microwave for 30 seconds and they taste just as delicious. THANKS!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
These were so awesome. I didn't change a thing except added more than a pinch of salt. Once I poured the sauce over the potatoes I mixed to make sure they were nice and coated. And then did the same twice during baking. My baking time was 45 minutes. PERFECTO! Will be making this plenty in the future.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
Great dip. I started off with the beans for layer one. The cream cheese , sour cream, and half of taco seasoning mix(makes it very spicy)mixed together for layer two. I added guacamole for layer three. Diced tomatoes for layer four. Black olives for layer five. Salsa for layer six and lots of shredded cheese for layer seven. I skipped onions, lettuce, and peppers and spread my layers in a 13x9 inch glass dish and heated at 350 for 30 minutes and talk about people raving. Everyone wanted to know the recipe. Easy, delicious and def a keeper for a fun appetizer

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
Delicious soup...I followed advice of a few others and cooked in crock pot all day on low but wound up putting on the stove in the end because potatoes were still crunchy. Maybe next time I'll use the high setting. I doubled the recipe from the start. I used 3 cups of leftover turkey stock from Thanksgiving. I added in carrots and italian seasoning for extra flavor. Then for the last half hour I added the shredded cheese, 1 cup sour cream, 6 tbsp butter and 6 tbsp flour. Instead of ham I crumbled cooked bacon on top. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!!!! Great base recipe to play around with. I would make sure to cube the potatoes small so they cook quicker.

Carol's Arroz Con Pollo

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
Very good recipe...Not a traditional Arroz Con Pollo recipe though but a good alternate. I marinated my chicken for a few hours(any liquid works-buttermilk, italian dressing etc..) then browned chicken on both sides in oil then added peppers(used red), onion, garlic and did the rest as listed but never removed the chicken from the pan-I let it finish cooking in all the liquids with the rice(rice is put in uncooked not cooked) and it was super moist. I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of stewed and I didn't have saffron so I used Abodo and extra Hungarian paprika(probably a little too much-it was spicy!) and I skipped the parsley. Very good dish with great flavor. Will make again and I look forward to the left-over tomorrow!

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2006
Very very good. Extremely tasty. I used only 1/2 onion and like 3 cloves garlic. Then I used two cans of diced tomatoes(used the one flavored with basalmic vingar/basil-great extra taste), sugar, sea salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and used italian seasoning to taste. I doubled the cream and butter as well. Will def make again and again. THANKS!
