Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I am giving this a 5 star rating b/c the crust was phenominal... however I was dissapointed that the directions didn't indicate whether this was for a double or single. I only made one and it was not enough for a top and bottom. So now I know for next time. Otherwise, it was so easy to make and most ingredients i usually have on hand... and if I don't have the shortening, I do have butter! Thank you!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
This is an excellent recipe for pb chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!! The first thing my husband said was, "Wow!" They are soft and chewy and have good flavor! He didn't pick up on the peanut butter flavor, but I did! He was pretty hungry and he's a man... so he got the chocolate chip part of it!! Anyway, they are so fast and easy to prepare too... usually making cookies takes forever for me b/c you need the same measurement for most of the ingredients... this one was perfect... I got it all mixed up in about 15 minutes tops! The cookies were all done in about 45 minutes! I will be using this recipe again for sure! Thank you so much for sharing!

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
This is a good basic recipe! I added two spoonfuls of peanut butter and about 1/4 bag of chocolate chips at the end of the melting process for a chocolate/peanut butter type dessert instead! It turned out really good! I also added about 1T. milk after the other extras so it stirred better and made it more creamy! Yum! Thank you for the recipe!

Peanut Butter Balls V

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I'm giving this a 4 star because it was a great tasting recipe and we love that it uses ground graham crackers instead of rice crispy's, but in the making the balls were hard to get into a ball with out kind of falling a part a little. (the recipe calls to add only 2 of the 2 1/2 cups to the peanut butter mixture, then add the remaining half cup if needed... I only used the 2 cups, and didn't even add the extra half cup and it was still too dry) I almost added a bit more peanut butter to help that out, but I just proceeded based off of the instructions. The outcome was fabulous! I tried the peanut butter balls with rice crispys and my hubby didn't like them... with the graham cracker, you don't get that crunch and they are more creamy... much better! Next time I make this I think I'll add some extra peanut butter and only use the 2 cups graham crackers for sure! Thank you for the good recipe!!!

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
Oh my golly!! This was FABULOUS!!! I followed the directions on the butternut squash for cooking it, as well as previous reviewers. I sliced the squash length wise, placed cut side down on a jelly roll pan and baked for approx 45 min. (it does take longer, but it is easier, and I was able to prepare my other dish while this was baking so it worked out nicely) Anyway, after it baked, I flipped the squash over and let it set for a little bit so it would cool a bit, and then I removed the skin. (it was very easy) I kind of thought that the topping would taste fine with out the vanilla waffers so I just used brown sugar and some butter to make a crumble topping. It was so good, and it was the very first thing gone!!! I love when that happens!!! Everyone was raving about the butternut squash casserole and it is now a requirement that I make it every year from here on out! Fine with me, b/c ALL of the ingredients (besides the squash itself) are all ingredients that I have on hand at all times. So it's not only inexpensive, it's actually convenient! My husband was very against me making this b/c he wanted something he knew he'd love... He took one bite, got out of his seat to come and find me to tell me how AWESOME this was and he couldn't believe he liked it so much... so that says a lot right there! He loved it enough to stop eating to come and tell me that! Thank you so much for sharing... this is such a wonderful dish that is a little out of the ordinary!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This was excellent!! I quadrupled the recipe for a Thanksgiving family get together and it was a huge hit! I followed everything to the T, except, I used 1 cup of heavy whipping cream since I had it on hand (and a few other reviews I read indicated it's not as creamy as they'd like). I separated the mac n' cheese into 2 very large casserole pans. I didn't add the breading/butter mixture to one just to see if I liked it better with or w/ out that. (since other reviews also stated the bread crumbs on top make it even drier. I wasn't sure what else I could add to make it creamier with out changing the taste, but it was delicious. I do think it would have been just as good creamier though! So I wonder if there is something I could add to help that out, but not change the taste very much. Anyway, this was a great side for our HUGE Thanksgiving Day dinner!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I only rated this a 3 star for a few reasons. First, I didn't think the chocolate cookie itself was all that outstanding. I think the devils food chocolate cake mix to make the cookies would taste much better. Also, first, I made 30 balls out of the filling dough. The balls were too big, but I didn't want to waste the filling dough... so of course, there wasn't enough cookie dough to cover all 30 balls. My suggestion is this: Cut the filling portion of this recipe in half... then make 30 balls out of that. Then make the cookie dough portion the same as what is called for. Then each ball should be able to be covered. Possibly double the cookie dough portion. I will have to try that to be sure. I am not sure I'll try this again though... It is more time consuming than most cookie recipes, but the outcome would have been worth it if it would have tasted a little better. I think if I do this again, I will use a devils food chocolate cake mix to make the chocolate cookie part, then just half the middle portion.

Holiday ONLY Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
YUM! These were EASY... and delicious! Everyone commented several times on how great these mashed potatoes were! I did use the suggestion by another reviewer and warmed (not melted) the butter and warmed the heavy cream. I haved used this method with sausage gravy as well and it really does make a difference. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe... oh I also added some fresh garlic to the potatoes and it was very good!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
This was a wonderful slow cooker chicken! The chicken literally fell off the bones! Just be careful when eating that you remove all bones... especially for kids... those little chickens have tons of bones in them and when everything falls apart so easy, it's no wonder you might find a bone on your plate! So good, you should definitely try this recipe!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew III

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
Well, this wasn't my favorite recipe. Actually I hardly ate any, and my kids wouldn't eat it... but my hubby liked it! It does smell very good and made the entire house smell warm and fallish! Love that! I am sure it was a good recipe, I just don't think it was to my taste... So that's why I gave it 4 out of 5 stars! I did add some extra carrots and celery just to make extra veggies, but that doesn't change the way it tastes!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This was the perfect "stoup" recipe! (as Rachel Ray would say!) I added a bit more chicken breasts to make it a little thicker but other than that, I followed this recipe exactly and it was so good! I doubled the recipe thinking I could freeze some for a month or so from now and it made so much I ended up taking an entire batch to my in laws!!! It makes a lot!! (and I have big eaters!) Anyway, you will love this recipe and you could even swap out the shredded chicken for shredded beef! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe that will be in my recipe book for years to come! Everyone raved about how yummy this was... perfect for a cool fall day or a cold winters night!!!

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This is so good! I love the chocolate crust vs the regular crust! I actually didn't even follow the directions correctly... by accident! I cooked it for an hour and took it out of the oven rather than turning off the oven and letting it sit in the oven for another hour... so I took it out and let it cool comletely, then put it in the fridge... even though I didn't follow it exactly... it was still so good!

Taco Dip I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Yum-o! This is the easiest and most delicious taco dip ever. It's always the first side item to go! Plus I don't like beans and this is the best recipe out there that I can find that doesn't use beans! I do cream (using a mixer) the cream cheese before adding any other ingredients. It does help. Thanks for a great recipe!

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
These are really good brownies... I did, however, make them as recommended by a previous reviewer. I doubled the recipe, added 1/3 C. pb, used only 3 eggs, 1/3 C. less flour, and after the brownies were finished cooking, I placed several hershey bars on top... waited a few minutes then spread it over the top. It was really good. Thank you for the recipe!
