Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
I am constantly asked to make these bars for family get togethers and anytime my husband spies bananas on the counter that have black spots he asks if i will make these! So delicious. I do them in a 9X13 pan, so the baking time is a bit longer. I also use at least 2, often 3, large bananas. Wish they werent so good, or that they were less calories! So hard not too eat a lot at once.

Brandy or Rum Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
These came out good. I did chill the mixture for a few minutes before attempting to roll, otherwise it would have been too messy. I also think the next time I will mix some of the chopped nuts IN to the chocolate and nilla wafer mixture - they just didnt stick that well to the out side of the balls.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
I made this when my boyfriends parents came in to town. I used the Meyers dark rum and followed the recipe as written. i loved the cake, but my boyfriend and his parents all htought the rum was too strong (I guess I'm a lush!) I'll admit it was strong in the glaze since you add the rum AFTER you've cooked it, so the alcohol doesnt really evaporate. The next time I make it I might add the rum and let the glaze cook a little bit longer after that. I was definitely a help to take the cake out, pour half the glaze in the pan, and then put the cake back in. Nice and moist!

Banana Bread Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
I used 2 medium bananas since thats what i was trying to use up. I followed the cookie recipe exactly other than that. They came out wonderful!! So soft - just like little hand-held banana bread slices. I didnt bother with the icing, I thought they were good plain. I brought them into work and they disappeared in minutes and had 2 ladies ask for the recipe. So easy and so yummy!

Cheese Cake Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
These were just ok. Nothing special, wont be making them again. I also had the same problem as many other reviewers with the centers caving in. And the nilla wafers seemed too soggy.

Seafood Lasagna II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
This was delicious. I cut back on the scallops and added more shrimp since we arent big scallop eaters. I didnt add all the mushrooms because I thought it was too much, but next time I will add what the recipe calls for because I barely noticed them. I added a few spoonfuls of chopped sundried tomatos (packed in water or oil) just because I thought the dish needed some color (and I dont eat spinach). Was a little runny when it first came out of oven, but was better the next day. I'll make again, but not that often since its rich and makes a ton!

Amaretto Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
Got rave reviews from my family over christmas. Followed the directions exactly - made it a couple days before xmas. Right before we served it I made a little thicker glaze from more pwdered sugar and amaretto so it didnt look so plain. Definitely a keeper.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
I followed Corinnes suggestions and this came out fantastic! The flavor and cosistency were wonderful, and just as good the next day. So you dont have to search for it, here is her suggestion: 1. Increase flour to 1/3 cup and substitute seasoned salt for regular salt. Put flour mixture into gallon-sized, zippered bag. Shake beef in bag to coat. Sauté coated beef in 1-2 tablespoons olive oil until browned. Add chopped onion to beef to sauté and soften. Transfer to slow cooker. 2. Mix beef broth with 1 TABLEspoon Worcestershire and ½ cup red wine. Pour into hot skillet to deglaze, then pour over beef and onions in cooker. 3. Add remaining ingredients with these additions: increase garlic to 2 cloves minced, 2 bay leaves; add 1 packet McCormick's Beef Stew Seasoning.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
I followed the recipe exactly, just scaled down since there was only two of us. I still have plenty of leftovers because its very filling. BUT SOOOOO yummy! I used a fire roasted tomato and garlic jarred sauce and sea shell pasta. The sour cream really does add a great flavor. I really liked this because most baked pasta recipes have ricotta cheese, which i cant stand. Will definitely make this again. Was very easy too!
