Pecan Surprise Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
Don't change a think, simply yummy! As with any cheese cake type dessert, make a day earlier for full flavor.

Hockey Pucks

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
OMG!! So simple I had my young daughters assemble as an activity to keep them busy. So good, they were hard to stop eating. I used 36 crackers or 18 cookies total and used a 12 oz bag of milk chocolate chips that I just melted in the microwave and dipped the sandwiches in while using 2 forks to hold onto. Just the perfect amount of chocolate. Sprinkled with decorative sprinkles. I have got to try these with rasberry jelly and/or marshmellow fluff. So additive.

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This is a keeper! I used a cheddar/monteray cheese mix and only 4 T. of butter. If you really want to add some taste and calories throw in some crumbled bacon on top. Update: Even better with red potatoes!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
Excellent. I substituted italian turkey sausage and half and half to lighten this recipe. It tasted just fine and I wouldn't bother with the higher fat ingredients. I did add about an 1/8 of a cup of parmesan cheese for extra flavor.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
Kid Favorite! I substituted approx. a 1/2 sleeve of crumbled ritz crackers for the bread crumbs. I just smashed them in a plastic bag and mixed with the melted butter. Also used fat free sour cream. I think this is a great take along dish for parties and such.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
Hardens Beautifully! This recipe will need a bit more milk to get to the right consistency, but don't overdo. Add a little at a time. I separated into small individual 'chocolate mold' for ease of decorating.

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Wow, a great flavor combo. I used slightly less than a 1/2 cup of ranch because it has such a powerful taste. I made a few substitutions and made the pizza even quicker - diced Perdue shortcuts chicken, canned, diced & well drained tomatoes mixed with a bit of crushed garlic and I added precooked (real) bacon bits. I will be making this often.

Strawberry Torte

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Quite possibly the best dessert I have ever made (and I have made thousands). Creamy, fresh, light, and just the right amount of sweetness. I subbed low fat coolwhip for the whipped cream and used 8 oz of regular cream cheese and 3 oz of the reduced fat. This was in an attempt to keep the fat content down. The flavor wasn't compromised at all! Per others suggestions I cooked down the strawberries with 1/3 cup of sugar and cornstarch and then partially pureed in the blender. The result was a strawberry sauce that was awesome. I actually made a double batch of this to freeze and serve later with strawberry shortcake. I layered the lady fingers, then cc mix, then strawberry sauce, and repeated. I topped with some sliced fresh strawberries for presentation. Perfection!

Chef John's Make-Ahead Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
Absolutely Awesome, worthy of 10 stars. This was time consuming but I made the day before Thanksgiving to free up the last minute crazies. I used 4 1/2 cups of water and 3 1/2 cups of turkey stock (large box), totaling 8 cups of pre-recipe liquid and it yielded approx. 4 cups of finished gravy. I was concerned that 10 cups of plain water may leave an unflavorful gravy, glad I adjusted.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
Better than Grandma's applesauce! Granny Smith tart apples were used so it was not too sweet. You could probably cut back the sugar a bit if you wanted to keep this recipe a little healthier. So easy and so very good.

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Oh Yes! Perfect coffee cake that is great for company. I used 1.5 cups of chocolate chips and substituted walnuts for pecans because this is what I had on hand. For the topping, per others suggestions, I used a combo of brown and white sugar and this worked well.

Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
I only used 1/4 cup of butter and they were fine. 1/2 cup (1 full stick) is a ton of butter but go for it if your conscience can handle it. I also used fat free sour cream. I added a touch of onion powder. Kids loved!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Not overly sweet like some other recipes can be, more 'cream cheesy'. I halved recipe to frost a 13x9 'frosted banana bar' recipe from this site. I will use this recipe for other desserts going forward.

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
This was very good and so simple to prepare. Kids loved which is a plus! I pounded my chix breast to approx. 1/2 inch thickness for uniform baking. I did season the breast with salt and pepper and added a dusting of seasoned breadcrumbs to the tops prior to adding sauce and cheese (only used 1 cup of parm-this was plenty). I did have to bake approx 50 minutes for the chix to be at correct temp. It was super moist and the croutons are what makes this dish. I will make this often.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
A keeper! Used 9 oz. cubed perdue shortcuts and pillsbury (unroll) crust, boy did this make it easy. I found the mix plenty moist, perhaps it was because I only had 9 ounces of chicken, but honestly I don't think I could have fit more mixture into the pie pan. Per others suggestion I prebaked the bottom crust for 5 minutes prior to adding mixture. There really is no need to change a thing on this one.

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Definitely one of the better chocolate cakes I ever made. Extremely moist, dense and flavorful. I only added 1 cup of choc. chips to the mix because others complained of the cake needing more baking time; 1 cup was plenty. I stuck with the 50 minute bake time too. For the glaze I used 'Satiny Choc. Glaze' from this site since I have used before and loved, and it requires only 3 T of butter, not 6 like this recipe. I subbed low fat sour cream too. Just some little tweaks in attempt to curb the monstrous fat and calories in this awesome cake.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Cream cheese layer is a really nice addition. I think it looked best when I added a small amount of muffin mix over the cream cheese mix, and then topped with streusel topping. I added some brown sugar into the streusel topping and I think next time I will skip the white sugar all together.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
Nice flavor and consistency. I wouldn't change a thing on this recipe except perhaps experiment with almond flavor in place of the vanilla. I think 1/2" cookies are better for handling and moister cookies.
