Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
i made these at christmas and my cousins all begged for the recipe. They were gone in a flash! The dough definitely needs to be cold when wrapping it around the chocolates, but not TOO cold. I made my dough the night before, and baked them off the next day. Well the first cookies came out like little mountains because I had used caramel kisses and the dough was too cold to spread right (I hadnt let it warm up at all before baking). After that though, they came out great.

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!

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
This was so tasty! I added just a little garlic, and a couple turns of the pepper grinder. I made this for my parents this weekend and Mom asked for the recipe.

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!

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.

Orange Cranberry Drops

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
I always double the recipe because it doesnt make enough cookies unless you do. Whenever I make these they are gone with in a day or two. Really wonderful for the holidays.

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!

Elaine's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
These came out great!!! I followed the suggestions of using 3 eggs, but I only had 1 cup of regular peanutbutter (which I used). The next jar I had was the Honey Peanutbutter (JIF), so I only added a 1/4 cup of that not knowing how the honey would affect the cookie. The cookies taste great - add I am sure they would be even better with some chocolate chips. Love the soft texture too! I used the double pudding Classic Butter cake mix from betty crocker.

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.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2006
I halved this recipe and made it last night for my boyfriend and I. It turned out wonderful!!! The chicken was so moist inside and very flavorful. I used italian bread crumbs since thats what I had on hand, and parmesan/romano cheese mix (Kraft). SOOOO yummy. I sprinkled a little extra cheddar on right at the very end. My boyfriend who isnt a big chicken eater normally, took the leftovers home with him! Will make again for sure!

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!
