Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
This is great! So wonderfully creamy! I used frozen mixed berries since that's what we happened to have on hand and it was delicious. I stuck it in the freezer for 30 minutes and it was firmer, but still fairly smushy. I liked it better this way but still ate the rest after it was more like traditional ice cream. I tried frozen mangos today and it was smoother than the berries (since they have seeds on them) but the taste is kinda weird.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
These are so good! I used margarine because I don't have lard and it sounds unappealing, but these were delicious.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I'm not one who really likes pumpkin pie, but I tried this anyway. It was delicious; I had two pieces!! I followed the directions of some of the other reviewers and put 2 tsp cinnamon, and heated the mixture a bit before putting it in the crust.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
This was so good! The only changes I made were: omit the celery, add more carrots, and I made my own onion soup mix (3/4 cup instant minced onion, 4 teaspoons onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon crushed celery salt, 1/4 teaspoon sugar). I'm making it again tomorrow :)

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
As written, this recipe is just okay. I made it once as the recipe specified, and a second time with revisions. The second time I made it, I LOVED it! My changes- reduce water by 1/4 cup, add 1/4 cup sugar free vanilla syrup, no sugar, double the cinnamon, add 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/4 tsp cloves. DELISH!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
I scaled this WAY down (2 servings) and didn't quite have all the ingredients cuz I'm at work. I didn't have vanilla so I didn't use it, and I used granulated sugar cuz I didn't have powdered so I obviously can't say anything about that. I like cream cheese frosting, but this recipe was VERY cream cheese-y. I added almost twice as much sugar to get it to my liking. I'm not sure if it would still taste like that even with the vanilla. I'd probably make this again, just with more sugar.

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
If you're looking for a GLAZE (like you would find on a donut or something), you need to increase the milk. I thought I wanted a glaze, but when I increased the milk to 2.5 tbsp, I didn't get what I was invisioning (something similar to the picture.) It tastes pretty good either way though

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
These were really tasty! I didn't change anything other than the bake time - 15 minutes instead of 10 so they would be crispy. I think next time, I would double the spices and maybe add some black pepper for extra spice.

The Original Treats™

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2014
As written, this recipe would rate 4 stars for me. With my tweaks, absolutely a 5 star! I use a teeny tiny bit more butter than called for, and all the other measurements in the recipe are the same. Make absolutely sure your butter/marshmallow mixture doesn't brown at all or they won't be as good. I also added a capful of milk (as suggested in the reviews) and a buttload of vanilla. I don't measure, but it was probably about 1.5 tsp or so. To flatten the treats, I use the wet-hands trick and they come out perfectly :)

Slow Cooker Sweet and Tangy Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Delicious but didn't need anywhere near 8 hours, even on low. I'm making it again today but this time I'll probably cook it on high for about 2 hours. Also, when I made it the first time, I included the pineapple chunks. I thought the actual chunks were gross, but my fiend liked them. This time, I'm only adding the pineapple juice.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: May 6, 2014
I made these originally to use as dumplings for chicken and dumplings. I accidentally used baking soda instead of powder, and I left out the tartar sauce. They were pretty tasty but didn't stay together so it seemed more like stuffing. I had more than I could fit in my crockpot so I made three biscuits in the oven and they were good but seemed to be lacking salt. I made these again today - added 1 cup of cheddar cheese, left out the tartar sauce again, and added a tiny bit extra salt. They still needed more salt. I would at least double the salt, possibly even up it all the way to a full teaspoon of salt.

Bikini Martini

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
The recipe as written wasn't that great, but when altered a bit it's realllly good. I don't like coconut so we just used banana rum, but since we're not big alcohol/vodka drinkers, this drink was too strong. We doubled the pineapple juice, and only used 1/2 ounce of vodka and it's fantastic. I'm drinking one as we type! With the drink mixed like this, I can definately see how you can get drunk quickly without realizing it.

Banana-Nut Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I changed this recipe a little to make it healthier. I used granulated Splenda instead of sugar, 2/3 cup oil + 1/3 cup apple sauce, 3 extremely mushy bananas, and egg whites instead of eggs. I probably used closer to 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. I also omitted the pineapple (cuz I didn't have any) and the coconuts and nuts (cuz I don't like either.) I gave it 3 stars because I don't know if it was my changes or the recipe. I didn't like it. It was VERY dense, which I was expecting a little but it was too much. It wasn't very pretty either. It just tastes off.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2014
I added the tiniest bit of milk to make it a little looser but not enough to really alter the recipe. I made some cream cheese icing to put over it, which made it better but still nothing to write home about.

Lactation Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
These were okay. The first bite was good, but the aftertaste was kind of bitter. It may be because I know what brewer's yeast taste like on it's own (gross) but I think I'll have to jazz these up quite a bit in order to like them. My husband thought they were pretty good though (although he noticed the aftertaste too.)

Waffles I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
This recipe seemed REALLY wet. It took forever to make them, and after 10 minutes or so, I gave up and they ended up a little undercooked. If I make these again, I think I will leave out the oil. I also added cinnamon cuz I love it in everything, and doubled the vanilla. These were only okay. I think I'll look elsewhere for a better recipe

Hot Fudge Sauce II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2014
This was tasty, if you just dip your finger in it. It didn't have the "hot fudgey" consistency I was looking for though. . It gets thick like fudge in the fridge but doesn't keep the thick consistency when heated. It would probably be pretty good if you topped a brownie with it, though

Caramel Frosting IV

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I did not care for this recipe. I tasted it before I added the powdered sugar, and I didn't see how it could possibly get better so I didn't bother wasting three cups of powdered sugar.
