Candy Bar Cookie Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
This recipe is deserving of 5 stars! The texture and chewy-ness is absolutely perfect, not overly sweet (it is a square made mostly from sugar and candy bars so come on, what are you expecting!) and it is one of the most simple and non messy desserts I have ever made. Having said that, I dont like Snickers! I made mine with Snickers cause its what I had been searching to cook with, but peanuts in baked goods just turns me off. I will make these again thought with Mars bars instead so I can keep all the caramel and chocolate but axe the nasty peanuts. Also, they are much tastier when they cool. They are very much like Blondies but without all the work! Cant wait to try it with a chocolate mix!!!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
Very good. Definitly have to say its a personal taste thing. I made it exactly as the recipe states (except no salt), but had one of those ultra powerful cloves of garlic and it was burning my mouth. So I ended up adding all the ingredients again except the garlic. Was much better.

Tzatziki Sauce II

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
I definitly did not appreciate the lemon I added!!! Made it again without the lemon and the black pepper and it was fantastic. I also used greek yogurt that I didnt bother draining but squeezed the life out of my shredded cucumber. After it was all mixed up I realized I wouldnt appreciate it being chunky, so I ran it through my food processor until it was semi-smooth. Mmmmmmm!

Be Prepared Five-Bean Soup Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
Okay, just to help future makers of this soup, it took me FOREVER to hunt down mixed vegetable flakes in my area. I called every store and hunted down every aisle. Finally I found them in the bulk bins at Whole Foods in the next town. Whew! Soup was delish, by-the-way, and it helps to ask the grocer for dehydrated veggies rather than mixed veggie flakes. I swear, Ive never been looked at so strangly in all my life.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
These are goo-oo-oo-d! And easy. And hard to screw up even if you do have three kids running around your feet. And good. Did I already say that?? Oh well, try them for yourself...

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
Great recipe. I do a few things differently but no matter what its a great taste. I have never actually done the whole seasoning salt thing, mostly because its just something I dont have in my spice cabinet. I filet my chicken instead of pounding it and I cook my bacon in the microwave (every package wil let you know how to do this if you have never done it before). By fileting and microwaving the bacon, it really cuts down on the mess. Regardless, its delicious and you gotta give it a try!

My Canadian Friend's Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006
Holy smokes! Talk about a taste explosion. This was an incredible party in my mouth. I was wary of trying it cause I always go for the ultra highly rated and tested recipes from this site (its just meal security) but I went out on a limb for this one and was sensationally pleased. Trust me. I know what Im talking about. You HAVE to make this soup. Update: I just wanted to say that I use the great big can of broth or even the box rather than the 14oz can the recipe calls for. Also, I use a turkey kielbasa or turkey smoked sausage in a package (by the bacon)rather than buying a pound fresh sausage in the meat section. I slice it thin and prefer it in taste. I make this soup at least every other week as my family just LOVES it and it is so quick and easy!!!

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006
Okay, so, this was my first soup experience and I am proud to report that it was a success! I cooked a bigger roast than suggested (4 lb...it was just there), added more barley, 2 cups more water and an additional boullion cube. It was a tasty sensation! A bonifide party in my mouth. I hightly suggest making this soup often and inviting the neighborhood.

Easy Cheese Ball II

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2005
I just snuck away from my Christmas party to post this reveiw. I have one word for this chesseball,UNBELIEVABLE! And for how simple it was to make (maybe 5 mins from beginning to end) I would never buy one from the store again. Its recipies like this that build a reputation. Every one thinks Im a culinary genious (and if you knew me, you would know why this is so amazing!!!).

Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2005
The taste and texture of these buns are perfect! I didnt alter any of the ingredients, though I did let the buns rise for about 2 hours (in the oven with a bowl of hot water underneath...this is the perfect rising method!) and I divided the dough into 8 balls instead of 25. Really a very good bun.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2005
Absolutely delicious!!! I have made them a dozen times already as they are so requested by my family and friends. I tried it once with brown sugar and it didnt turn out nearly as good as with white, so stick to the recipie! Also, I put the egg mixture in to a big ziploc bag and shook it with the nuts to get them coated. Then I put the sugar, salt and cinnamon in the bag and shook it again. It made for an easy clean-up.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
Omigoodness!!!! If anyone could ever say this wasnt good, or give it less than 5 stars, they are either lying or do not know how to follow directions. I didnt deviate from the recipie at all (no searing, garlic, extra spices, nothing!) and it was wonderful. We dont drink alcohol but I used beer anyways (I had no clue what kind to buy as I have never had a beer so I got budweiser because it said "king of beers")and being as I am not acustomed to the taste of alcohol, you'd think I would have tasted it. Well, I didnt! And no one in my family noticed either (we are all non-boozers). It was delicious and easy to clean up becuase everything was in one pot!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
Super easy to make. I followed reviewer advice and made it in the microwave before pouring it over the "Choloate lovers' favorite cake" that is on this site and it was a hit! I will definitly use it again and again!

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
This cake was wonderful. I made it just as the recipie said and it turned out wonderful. My sister and mother both commented that it tastes similar, though better than, a chocolate cake you would order in a high-end resteraunt. Dont read any negative reviews on this one. They arent true!

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
I hate to be the party pooper, but I wasnt thrilled. It was good but VERY sweet and I used a boxed brownie which didnt absorb the pudding and cream and get all mucky like a traditional trifle would. It might be better with chocolate cake substituted for the brownie. Otherwise, it was just a brownie with pudding and cream on your plate.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
Unbelievable! This is the #1 absolute BEST banana bred ever! I got this recipie over a year ago and have not stopped making it. I have a big family and this makes 4 perfectly sized loaves so some I give away and some I freeze. The only bad thing about this is having to wait for your bananas to ripen so you can make it again!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
Wow! had never made a pot roast before and I knew NOTHING about cooking a roast of any kind. THIS WAS SO EASY!!!!! not to mention super good too! I did 1 can of cream of mushroom and 1 can of cream of celery (that way I didnt have to chop celery... which I didnt have...but still got the celery taste I like). I used a 4 lb pot roast and cooked it for 9 hours on a low setting. Its perfect. Better than I hoped!
