Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
This is excellent! I made it for a birthday party at work and everyone wouldn't stop praising me for being such a great cook. They made me promise to email the recipe to everyone tonight. It stuck to the pan (I used a pizza stone) after it was refrigerated, but I let it sit out for about 4 hours before serving at the party, and that did the trick. It came out easily with a pie spatula. I cut it after cooling with a pizza cutter and brought it to work on my pizza stone - don't even think about moving it from the baking pan to a more attractive serving platter because it is far too fragile for that. But with care, and leaving it at room temperature for at least a few hours, it will serve perfectly. The glaze was far more than I could fit on the pizza, so I made a big bowl of fresh strawberries, rasberreis, and blueberries, and tossed it with the remaining glaze. Was soooo YUM!

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
Everyone was right! This was devine! I made it exactly as the recipe said except minus the terragon simply because I didn't have any. I didn't take half the soup out to puree- I just used my potato masher in the pot and it came to a perfect consistency that way. I will top with cheddar. It is sooo good! And makes a huge pot, perfect for a big family or gathering. YUM!

Perfectly sweeted and delicious! I wanted to make this without running to the store, and I didn't have raisins. But I didn't miss them. It was great!

Uglies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
First, I have to disagree with those that called these ugly- I think mine were pretty cute! I loved this idea of using the biscuits to make cups, and wanted to make something with them for breakfast. I didn't have any sausage, so I used about 1/4 pound ground beef, about 1/2 tablespoon taco seasoning, and cracked 4 eggs into the drained meat. I scrambled that all together for a minute or so, then filled the cups. I baked according to the biscuit directions (13 minutes at 400 degrees) and then topped with a mound of sharp cheddar and returned to the oven for about 30 seconds or so. They were a big hit with my whole family, and were delicious! After having them this way, I think the sausage might have been too strong anyway. These were just right.

Mexican Pizza II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
These were wonderful! I love that this recipe calls for the beans and meat to be mixed together. That made them very better than others. I made them with homemade flour tortillas which also made them great. I will agree with a previous reviewer's comment: these are better than Taco Bell's!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
Ok, this was the fastest and easiest cake I have ever made. It was better the next day after it cooled. It seemed fluffy when it was hot but when it cooled, it became this dense, moist, delicious mouthwatering cake. I didn't even put icing on it. I made it in a bundt cake pan (cooked for 55 mins) and sprinkled a little bit of powdered sugar on top just for decoration. It took me about 10 minutes from start to get it in the oven. I made it exactly as specified - no variations at all. It didn't need anything else. I was expecting it to just be ok. But it was EXCELLENT! Update 10/18/09 - Ok, since my last review I've made this cake at least a dozen times. I keep all of the ingredients incase I hear that someone is coming, and it's a huge hit with guests. I have had some failure getting a nice bundt cake with this recipe because it's so extremely moist that the top sometimes falls off in the pan, but it's never bothered anyone. Today I made it in a 9x9 pan and it's nice and thick. It was wonderful according to this recipe, but for variation I've added a tsp of cinnamon and a big pinch of red chili powder. Makes a unique and wonderful flavor. The longer it sits the more moist it gets. Soooooo good.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
yum yum yum! These are great! I wanted more so I doubled the recipe, but 1 recipe of crumb topping was enough for all. I filled the muffin cups to the top and it made 12 giant muffins (6 per recipe). I would imagine it will make 8 for a single recipe if you don't quite fill the cups all the way. I wouldn't change any ingredient. YUM!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
The name is no lie. These are unbelievably good brownies. The best brownie's I've ever made from scratch with cocoa and no added processed chocolate. My square pan was in the oven already, so I used a round pan and cut them into triangles. Soooo delicious- my family gobbled them up in no time.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
This was SO good! I like broccoli but was getting SO bored with it. This was a great twist and my husband and I loved it. The kids did not like it, but will probably have to get used to the shock of not having the same old broccoli they are used to.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
Great recipe! Like other reviewers, I would never have thought to make my own until I needed some and didn't have any. How simple and quick this is. I didn't find it too spicy...in fact, I think I would prefer more than this recipe for 1 package of ground beef, depending on the use. For tacos, I will try 1.5 times this recipe next time. I used it in the Taco Quiche recipe and it was great.

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Excellent! This hit the spot for something sweet and delicious. I made an apple pie a couple of weeks ago, and my 5 year old daughter asked me to make another pie without the crust because she loved the apples. This was a little twist on that and was yummy! Might make twice the recipe next time because these went too fast. I did use brown sugar instead of white and was out of raisins. I will try it with raisins next time.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
I always look for really quick chicken recipes, and I don't know why I've never come across this one before. This is the easiest chicken I've ever made that actually has flavor. I made this on a night that I went out to dinner with a friend, so that my husband would have something to eat. He is from India and loves food covered with spices, so I thought this would be right up his alley. It made the house smell so good and I was sorry that I wasn't going to eat it! I did taste it though, and it was wonderful. My husband is so picky since I'm American and he really really misses his mom's Indian cooking....which I don't cook much because it's time consuming and we are very busy. So it was exciting to find something that he really likes. Thanks for the great and simple recipe! Oh also, I don't have an iron skillet so I just heated up my t-fal pan really hot and it worked fine. I had to bake it for 25 minutes though to get it done in the middle, and it was soooo juicy! I doubled the cayenne pepper too since my husband thinks food tastes better the hotter it is :).

Double Peanut Butter Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
Wonderful! "Creamy" is not usually an adjective I use for cookies, but that is what they were. Especially the next day. I fully intended to make them exactly according to the recipe, but I ran short of peanut butter. I had enough for the dough but not enough to spread between layers. So I just mixed the chocolate chips into the dough and put the dough on the pan by spoonfull, and they were terrific. I had natural peanut butter (no added ingredients like sugar) and they still turned out great.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
Amazing. Tasted better than I even expected. Does not taste homemade. I found it hard to scale down this recipe because the calculator gives you all measurements in pounds, even for a few people. But I guessed on the measurements an guess I got close because it was simply delicious.

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
This was excellent and my husband wanted more. It's not often that he loves something like he did this. I don't have a grill and made it in the skillet with a little olive oil. It probably would have been better grilled because the outside got real done before the center was done, but it was great and we loved the flavor. My 5 year old daughter says she would not like it and then was surprised when she loved her first bite!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
My pie wasn't perfect for my first time making an apple pie. But I can see the potential in the recipe if I had more experience. I made a big mistake in forgetting the flour in the sugar butter mixture! I remembered after I had finished my basketweaving on the crust, so I wasn't going to redo it all for the flour. Surprisingly, it was delicious without it. But, there was no syrup in the pie. All of the thin liquid had been absorbed by the apples and crust. But, this wasn't a bad thing, it was still very tasty. Next time I will make it correctly though. The apples were tart and I prefer more sweetness in a pie, so I may also try it with a sweeter apple next time. Regardless, my taste buds couldn't find a complaint with this one. I also used the "butter flaky pie crust" recipe and everyone raved over the buttery crust. All together, even despite my inexperience and mistake, my pie was a big hit and enjoyed by all on our family's Thanksgiving table!

Country Green Beans

Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
My sister had her wisdom teeth removed Friday so I found this recipe while looking for something soft to make her to eat in addition to the mashed potatoes I had made. This was a HIT! She loved it and asked me for the recipe so she could send her husband to the store to buy the ingredients to make it again. I tasted it also and it was great! So simple too! One tip - double or triple the recipe. 1 recipe makes 2 small servings. 2 recipes makes 2 large servings. When I make it for my family of 4, I'll probably triple the recipe to give everyone enough to have 1 serving.
