Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
The ONLY chocolate chip cookie recipe I'll use from now on. That's all I have to say.

Buffalo Chex® Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Sorry, but this was very bland. If you want spicy chex mix, add some Frank's to the original recipe, along with extra Worchestershire. I definitely won't be making this again.

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Thanks for the great idea! Had to sub worcestershire sauce for the horseradish (my family isn't big on it), but I'll definitely leave the recipe as is when I'm just cooking for me and the hubby. Oh yeah - definitely use a sharp cheddar in this recipe. Delish take on burgers!

Hot 'n' Spicy Buffalo Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
This was great! My personal tastes lean toward Frank's Red Hot, so I used it, but this was a seriously good meal. I also added some grape tomatoes and hard cooked eggs. Thanks for the recipe - it's now my go-to chicken salad.

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
OK, so it's not the most gourmet cake topping out there, but it's pretty darn good (I love it on spice cake).

Steaks With Roquefort Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
Fantastic! I also cooked some sliced mushrooms in the pan before adding the sauce ingredients. The mushrooms add a lot to the flavor and the texture. A splash of red wine is nice, too! Thanks!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
I've never made shepherd's pie (cottage pie) before, and my husband has never eaten it, but this recipe was a great introduction. Thanks!

Deer Poppers

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
Yum. I had been meaning to try this for awhile and finally got around to it last night. I used beef (we had just gotten a home-raised one "taken care of" and, as usual, my husband and I wanted to try it ASAP), marinated in Wishbone House Italian dressing (absolutely amazing, by the way) and nixed the seasonings in favor of a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash. Per another reviewer, I put them in the (convection) oven at 400 for 10 minutes, then under the broiler. We will definitely be using this one again. Thanks so much!

Chicken and Sausage with Bowties

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
Very good! As suggested, I added a package of frozen broccoli florets. I forgot to add the wine, but it was still delicious. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
Fabulous! I also used two packets of dressing mix, added bouillion to the water and tossed in a thinly sliced onion. My family loved this. Thanks so much.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
Wow! This was very good. I admit, I did add browned ground beef (I cook for carnivores), some mushrooms and some garlic, but this was a fabulous meal. Definitely not too much cheese, either! It made a ton, too - I had to use an extra pan. Thanks so much for the great recipe.

Potato and Shiitake Mushroom Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
Delightful! The only things I changed were to use 2 cups of half & half instead of 1 cup of cream and 1 half & half and to toss in a handful of chopped green onions. A great recipe, and I can't wait to try it again!

Roasted Chicken with Risotto and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
This made for a great dinner! To get some extra veggies, I added some chopped carrots with the rice and tossed in some sauteed asparagus when I mixed in the onions. Also, I backed off on the balsamic a bit, because I'm not a huge fan. Overall, a good recipe. Thanks!

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
I just made this to have with our Valentine's Day dinner, but I'm terribly afraid it won't last through the night! I probably have chocolate all over my face from licking every utensil. This dessert is incredible - I can't wait for my husband to try it! *Note to HaileyDaily: I know I can't be the only one to think this, but I just couldn't go without saying it. Please don't laugh at children for making "mistakes." There's no better way to discourage them from trying. Use this as an opportunity to learn with your daughter. Thanks, though, for allowing her to experiment. The world needs more foodies!

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
Fabulous! I used two cups of water and three teaspoons (cubes) of bouillion with two cans of mushroom soup and two envelopes of mushroom onion soup mix. It was absolutely delicious with noodles. Will try turning the leftovers into soup/stew tomorrow evening. Thanks much ~ it was reminiscent of my mum's roast.

Herald's Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
A great start, but definitely needed a kick. I added a chopped cayenne pepper to the beef, along with some sliced baby bellas. I'm not a fan of tomatoes, either, so I stirred a small can of tomato sauce into the browned beef mixture, too (will use paste next time, though).

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
What a great, easy recipe. I seasoned the chicken with garlic, garlic salt, Mexican blend chili powder and onion powder and used my homemade salsa. Added some sour cream on the side and served it with steamed summer squash and black beans with rice. We'll definitely make this one again. Thanks!

Sausage Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
These made me a goddess to my family! Wow. I only made a half-batch using a one-pound roll of Italian sausage, one package of cream cheese and just a bit of extra sharp Cheddar. I agree with the reviewers who suggested cutting the bacon lengthwise before wrapping. Using the convection oven crisped it nicely. Thanks so much for such a fantastic recipe!

Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
An absolutely delicious recipe. I used Italian sausage (cooked and sliced) instead of kielbasa, added some chopped onion and a few cloves of garlic while I browned the sausage, upped the carrots, tossed in two diced potatoes and added bouillion to the water. It cooked MUCH faster than the recipe stated - the lentils were tender after about 4 hours on low (when I added tomato sauce instead of tomatoes).
