Lucy's Mac and Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
This is a very good recipe for a group of kids. You DO NOT need to cook the macaroni first, as others have said. The trick is DO NOT DRAIN the corn. Dump everything together and cook for the length indicated and it wonderful and creamy. I did cut down the butter to 3/4 stick. If you don't think you'll like the taste of corn mixed with mac and cheese, you won't like this.

Baby BLT

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2006
These were very tasty, and I received compliments on them at my party. I will warn you, to say they are pain to make, assemble, and present is an understatement. I tried to slice a little off the bottom of each tomato so they wouldn't roll around, but that caused a hole through the tomato in some cases. So, I just let them roll. If there was a way to present them better, I would make them again. Another tip -- make sure you have very large cherry tomatoes to make it easier. I thought mine were pretty big, but I had about 1/2 cup of stuffing remaining.

Apple-Feta Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2006
I made this salad this morning, exactly as written, for a funeral lunch. The walnut portion of the recipe was very good. However, the dressing was bad -- way too sharp. Other women working with me agreed -- one woman suggested using a bottled poppyseed dressing, which I will do next time. I should have trusted my instincts. The dressing tasted too strong after I made it, but I convinced myself it would blend well with the sweetness of the apples.

BBQ Cola Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
I did not care for these meatballs at all! Neither did the guests at my party -- no one went back for seconds and some had trouble eating the few on their plates. I was totally embarrassed that I had made them!! The only reason I am giving them two stars is they were very good plain, without the sauce. The sauce had too much of a vinegar bite which stayed with me most of the evening -- I kept eating other food to try to get rid of it. It goes without saying that I will not make these again.

Taco Soup VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
I usually have very good experience with recipes on this site, but this was a big flop. The fact that it wasn't anything like soup didn't bother me, it just tasted like mushy taco meat casserole. I could tell that the leftovers would not get eaten. It sat in the fridge for over a week and I just pitched it.

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
If you love hot wings with blue cheese dressing (which I do) you will LOVE this recipe, especially if you want to avoid messy fingers and a greasy stove to clean up. This was SUPER easy and tasted just like wings. I also thought there was a little too much blue cheese dressing. I always try to make these allrecipes just as written without modifications the first time. However, I had almost put on the entire bottle of dressing - about 14 ounces - when I decided to stop, and I am glad I did. I may go down to 12 oz. next time. I will make again.

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini Deluxe

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
WARNING -- This makes a HUGE amount. I made it for dinner for my small family and will have leftovers for several nights. Luckily there is enough moisture in it that leftovers heat up well and it doesn't become pasty. If I make it again, I will cut it in half. My son loved it, and he usually hates everything we like. I thought it was ok -- I won't rush to make it again.

Monster Cookies VI

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
These were excellent!!!! I made them just as the recipe stated. One tip (I found this out from making cookies in the past) you must use the ice cream scoop or make them that big to have them turn out. If you try to make them small, they will turn out very different. The second time I made these, I ran out of creamy peanut butter so I used part crunchy. I think I liked this mix - it added to the texture. Yum!!

Rhubarb Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2005
This was fabulous! My kids thought they hated rhubarb because it grows in the garden -- they cleaned their plates. I topped it with ice cream while warm. One thing to note -- the recipe summary says this cooks in a 9x13, but the actual recipe says a 9" square pan. I used the 9" square and the ratios seemed perfect (topping to contents). The topping was very good, too! I will make it again and again.

Almond-Raspberry Meringue Bars

Reviewed: May 13, 2005
I decided to try these because I was looking for something different than the traditional cookies and brownies. My husband absolutely loves them and has already eaten half the pan in half a day. He says the crust is the best - the perfect soft texture. I was surprised that the crust turned out as soft as it did -- it didn't appear soft after the first baking, but the jam must soften it up. I like them too.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
These mini-meatloaves were excellent! Don't you hate trying to dig slices of meatloaf out of a bread pan? If so, then you will LOVE making and serving these. Every serving looks great on everyone's plate! I did not add anything extra - I guess we like to get the flavor from the sauce. I made six mini-loaves instead of eight, and the serving size was just right. Plus, six fit better in my 9x13 than eight would have. This is a very good recipe!! I will make them again!

Thick Cut-Outs

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
These cookies were very good! To tell the truth, I really debated whether or not to make them since a few people really did not like them at all. I thought what the heck -- I like to bake and it would really not be that big of a deal if we didn't like them. I cut the recipe in half and ended up with 28 thick, soft cookies. I added a little almond to the dough, as others had done, just to give it a little flavor. I'm not sure what those who didn't like them are looking for. They were very easy to make, and the dough was easy to handle. The final cookie is a little shortbread-like. We really liked them and will make them again!

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2005
I followed this recipe exactly and they turned out fabulous! I guess the only thing I did differently was used three very large tenderloin bone-in chops instead of three regular-sized ones. We really love recipes with a lot of sauces, but sometimes we like the freshness of no sauce -- if so, then this is the recipe for you. A couple of people said theirs were dry, but ours weren't at all. Maybe that's because I occasionally turned the chops as they were sauteeing. My husband even liked them a lot and he normally gets quite when he knows we're having chops!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
This dish was absolutely wonderful. It could possible be the best dish I've made from this website, and I get a lot of good recipes here. I read that other people substitued milk for the half and half to reduce calories. Well, I did the opposite. I only had heavy cream in the fridge and didn't want to run to the store, so heavy cream was substituted. As I was stirring the pot, I was a little worried that the italian seasoning would take over the taste. I was a little bummed that I had added it - but when it was cooked in, it was fabulous. The sauce was a nice consistency and we served it over pasta. Definitely restaurant quality.

Caramels

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2005
I have not actually made this recipe, but I do make a lot of candy. I am wondering if some of the people who had trouble getting the temp to 250 degrees were using a non-stick pot instead of a heavy pot - like Farberware or similar. In the past, I tried making candy in a teflon coated pot, thinking it was the smart thing to do, and my candy invariably failed. I could never figure out why my Grandma got hers to work and I followed the recipe exactly. There is something about the non-stick pot that messes up the candy.
