Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
Amazing and delicious - perfect for a cold winter day. I doubled the recipe and it still only served four of us (because it is so yummy) but I used waaay more flour even still (2/3 cup) and 1/2 milk 1/2 broth for the liquid. I used a cup of sour cream instead of the half and half - stirred it in at the end with the cheese - and it was perfectly creamy. I love the addition of hot pepper sauce - which adds a nice kick - and I didn't so much "dice" the potatoes as I did "squish them out of their skins" into the roux. All in all this is a keeper - a huge hit at my house.

Peanut Butter Balls III

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
These couldn't be any more wonderful. Because it is what we had on hand I used half natural peanut butter and half crunchy Jif. The flavor was just right. Following a commenter's suggestion I added cereal, but we didn't have rice crispies so I crumbled some frosted flakes and put them in. Added a nice, sweet crunch. Finally, husband came home with milk chocolate chips instead of semisweet so the coating was made of those, which may have contributed to their sweet, rich, wonderfulness. I put a toothpick in each peanut butter ball before the first chill, and then slid it out as I dipped each in a spoonful of melted chocolate. It made the process much easier. Finally, I used three bags of chocolate chips - much more than the 2 cups called for in the recipe. I'll make these every holiday season from now on, for sure.

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
This was stunningly easy and so amazingly delicious. I did brush the bottom crust with egg white and I tossed the apples with 2t cinnamon, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out PERFECT.

Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
I didn't have any semisweet chocolate on hand so I used 1/2 oz of unsweetened chocolate and 1t of sugar. This recipe makes the perfect spicy/sweet sauce to go with chicken enchiladas. Yum!

Very easy and delicious. I like that it is not over seasoned or too complicated. I added another cup of water and a cup of rice after boiling the tomatoes et.al. and it was amazing!

Prego® Porcupine Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
We loved these meatballs! The turkey stayed moist and tender, and cooked just right simmering on low for 20 minutes. I sauteed the rice with butter and onion, before adding the water and a beef bouillon cube. This added a nice tang to the rice in the recipe. An excellent dish which will make much loved leftovers.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
These muffins rock! I beat the egg and then added the sugar to the egg before mixing the egg to the bananas, and I think this helped distribute the bananas through the flour mixture somehow. In any case , this recipe was ridiculously easy and will be made again and again and again in my kitchen. I looooooove the crumb topping!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
wow. Perfect, moist, tender baked chicken. I baked for 45 minutes, and changed nothing about the ingredients except for the amount of butter as suggested by other users. The crackers make a great crust. Will use often in the future.

White Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I usually have a hard time with chocolate cookies, but these cookies are amazingly soft and chewy, just like brownies. In my opinion the equal parts brown sugar and white sugar is what makes them so soft, and the batter looks waaaay thicker than usual cookie dough. But they turned out perfect! Don't change a thing! My only substitution was that I only used 1 1/2 cups of white chocolate chips and would use less next time, but other than that I think this is a perfect cookie recipe.

Red Velvet Cake IV

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2005
Ive always wanted to try to make a red velvet cake and Im SO glad I tried this one. Its magnificent! I also added almost double the food coloring, one ounce is just not enough. I used cake flour and the batter was very smooth. 9 inch pans worked fine for me. The frosting does NOT need a whole cup of butter. I used about 3/4 cup and still had to add about a whole cup of powdered sugar. Over all, superb.
