Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
5 stars for convenience, this is a stress saver for big holiday's. just make it the day before and pop it in when you are cutting the meat and setting the table. these couldn't have been any easier. there is nothing worse then breaking out the hand mixer when everyone is gathering in the kitchen to "talk".

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
i used pre made oreo crust found in the baking isle of the grocery. i had to use 2 of them with the ingredients listed in the recipe. it was wonderful, but portions are off for just one. i also made one with my own crust later, i liked the pre made oreo crust better. will make 100 times over again!

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
really really good. i didn't have "chile sauce" so i used an extra 1/4 cup of katchup and added 1 tbls of chili powder like someone else suggested. i used regular mustard also. can't beat it. others said something about using a rub, not necessary.

Campfire Banana Splits

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
1 star for looks (rotten pickle appearence) but 5 stars for taste. I overloaded each bananna with marshmellows and chocolate chips, the smell was amazing when they were cooking. Great idea, lots of happy kids!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake II

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
What a delightful screw up this was! I followed the recipe pretty closely but added 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup of pineapple juice. I also didn't cube the pineapple, I used the rings out of a can. I originally made just one batch but silly me didn't read the pan size and put it all together in a 9x12. So I made another batch to fill the pan up and baked a bit longer, more like an hour. I was completely ready for a disaster but to my surprise it was fantastic. Not dry, not too moist but just perfect. So double your recipe and stick it in a 9/12 to enjoy even more. Also give your mixing a lot of love. The batter is wonderful too. Lick your spoon!

The World's Best Turkey

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
i altered this a bit, didn't cook in a bag and used white wine instead. THE KEY TO A SUPER GOOD TURKEY IS TO PUT IT BREAST SIDE DOWN IN YOUR ROASTER PAN! mine was so juicy we had to pick it apart, the knife wouldn't slice it. the gravy was super good too.

Caramel Shortbread

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
I have two problems with this recipe: the shortbread crumbles when you try to cut it, and the carmel is waaay too sweet. It smelled great on the stove until I added the sweetend condensed milk and it just ruined it. I used brown sugar as other suggested which really gave it a carmel smell, but again the condensed milk just made the carmel mixture gross. If for some reason I tried this again I would find something other than the condensed milk and use another shortbread recipe. Great idea, and it set up well but just way too sweet. I'll stick to the Twix bar.

Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
i totally bombed this but it still tasted great. i was too lazy to pound the chicken, rolled it anyway and then forgot the bacon until i already put it in the oven. So i took it out and layered the bacon on top. didn't secure it with toothpicks either but WHO CARES! TASTED GREAT IF YOU CAN GET OVER IT'S BOMB SHELL APPEARENCE!

Pumpkin Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
it's ok. tastes good. but in the freezer it's too hard and in the fridge it's too soft. couldn't find a happy medium. i used a already made graham cracker crust by kebler. probably wouldn't do that again. takes away from it.
