Caramel Brownies II

Reviewed: May 18, 2014
My family has been making this recipe for years, it is always a hit. One challenge though is that now the cake mix and caramels are coming in smaller packages (probably cost the same though!). Bags of wrapped caramels are only 11 oz, cake mix is now 15.25 oz. So you have to use a slightly smaller pan and slightly less evap milk. I kept the chocolate chips the same though, but used belgian chips, slightly darker chocolate than semi-sweet.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
This recipes is so wonderful and so easy, I don't know how anyone could not like it! My go-to recipe for potlucks, teacher lunches, etc... I can't think of any recipe you could make that would be easier and less expensive that would get the rave reviews this dish gets everywhere I take it!

Crunchy Peanut Butter Drops

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
This is a delicious way to use up cereal that the family has stopped eating. I use it not only for flake type cereal but also for rice chex, etc. I think I'd love it even more if it had some vanilla in it, I may play with that to get it to 5 stars for me but it's soooo good as-is, too!

Grecian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
I had a lime I needed to get rid of but wasn't sure it would go with my pork chops. I searched allrecipes and got this -- it was great! I didn't have time to marinate, so I put the pork chops in a foil packet with the marinade and baked them for several minutes, then threw them on the grill to give them grill marks and finish them. Delish!

Decadent Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
I am a huge fan of peanut butter, so I LOVED this. I have also made it another way -- using individual graham crusts, I put a layer of Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dream chocolate peanut butter on the bottom, then the peanut butter/cream cheese mixture as stated in this recipe, omitting the chocolate sauce. Even more peanut buttery if that's your thing!

No-Bake Peanut Butter Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
I loved this. I substituted vanilla for the almond extract. To me, this was like peanut butter fudge with rice krispies in it, so, YUM. I broke my spatula handle though... suggest a STRONG spoon. I wonder if this started as a fudge recipe but needed the cereal to hold it together. It's really good though!

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
We usually do a candied sweet potato casserole at Christmas but I happened to have a butternut squash handy, so I made this recipe. Everyone liked that it was something different, not quite as sweet as the sweet potato... the contrast of the sugar and the squash was really nice. I didn't have vanilla wafers so I ground up some Christmas cookies. :) This is a keeper!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
After reading an article about how disgusting ground beef is, I have stuck with pork burgers (go good with Hyvee's pork seasoning!) but wanted to try something else. This was a hit right off the bat. I followed some other commenters' suggestions... added a few drops of worcestershire sauce, few shakes of McCormick Montreal Steak seasoning and whole egg instead of just whites. The patties held together beautifully, stayed juicy. Will absolutely add this to the rotation! Thanks Trudi!

Warm Belgian Endive and Pine Nut Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
Yum! I have never made anything with endives before but they looked so cute in the store. :) Reading the reviews where people added honey I thought I'd like to sweeten the dressing up too, but had no honey. So I added brown sugar to taste and LOVED this change. The leaves are so pretty I didn't want to cut up into rings, so I peeled off leaves until wouldn't peel, then would slice a couple rings, then peel again, all the way to top. I liked the presentation... some rings, some leaves, it was interesting. I sort of stir fried it in the sauce, and when it lost the super crunchy texture it also lost the bitterness. Still a firm, nice texture and very tasty, will make again to impress guests!

Poached Salmon with Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Sooo good, and I don't even like salmon. Had some and needed to use it up though, and I love Hollandaise. I used unsalted butter and then salted to taste. I used realemon concentrate, where 1 tsp = 1 tbsp lemon juice. I thought it was fantastic. The Hollandaise was perfect, and poaching while making the sauce made it soooo easy. Served over long grain rice. Will definitely make this again.

Mini Ham And Cheese Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
I had to leave off one star because this version of the recipe leaves off two key things. First, you have to add brown sugar to the drizzled mixture, and second, after drizzling you cover these and put them in the fridge overnight. The "sauce" soaks in so that when you bake them the next day, the buns are carmelized with the mixture. It's amazing!

Divinity

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I thought I had ruined this but am so glad I waited it out, because a day later it's divine. Amazing it came out right because my candy thermometer doesn't seem to work... I never really got it up over 240 but it had cooked for about 20 minutes at that point and it was getting yellowish, so I just used the "drop some into cold water" method, which I am not expert at. It "seemed" like it was at the right stage, so I went ahead with recipe. Beat it forever in stand mixer but it never got very dull, went ahead and dropped some on waxed paper (very sticky), but that was difficult so I ended up greasing a square cake pan and pouring the rest in there (my Grandma's divinity was always cut little squares, not drops). It was sooo sticky for the first 12+ hours, I thought it was ruined. The stuff on the waxed paper never looked right. On a whim I cut a square out of the cake pan, and voila... perfect Divinity!! Glad I didn't try to "fix" it yesterday!

Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I didn't care for this. Like other reviewers mentioned, it does not have the consistency or taste of cheesecake. It tasted okay, but I won't make it again, sorry.

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
This was good and it looked beautiful, but I was expecting something amazing after reading reviews that claimed you'd never want to have store-bought angel food cake again. Yes, it's good but boy it's a bit of work compared to just buying one. I thought the texture was a little better than store-bought, but the key with store-bought is to make sure it's very fresh, they get dry after a couple days. To be fair, I'd probably have been more impressed with this if it hadn't been for all the reviews making me expect an earth-shaking improvement over store bought.

Smoked Salmon Mousse

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I HATE salmon. Hate it. But I was licking the spoon after mixing this! My blender had a tough time with the salmon and also the cream cheese, but I got it done. Doubled the recipe but cut back the cream cheese a little, added a touch more cream. It was glossy and beautiful! Added 2 tsp chopped garlic (from a jar, with juice), put a little tarragon on top for garnish as I had no dill. Left out the roe. I liked it when first made, but refrigerated it for a few hours before a party and it got stronger tasting -- I thought it was too strong, wouldn't do that again.

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
I didn't have walnuts, but used pecans. The nuts weren't getting "candied" fast enough (sugar wasn't dissolving), so I added a little light corn syrup which worked great. I happened upon a dip called "Cranberry Celebration" which is cranberries, pineapple & walnuts sort of gelatinized together, so I plopped little bits of that on and tossed, it was easy and great. My raspberry vinaigrette has walnuts in it, too. My guests cleaned the bowl! Not one leaf was left, it was a huge hit. I'll definitely make this again.

Double-Layer Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
I make this every year, it's fantastic. After trying this recipe, I am always disappointed in a plain ole pumpkin pie!

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
WOW this is good. I can't wait to make this for company, holidays, teachers, etc. I replaced 1/4 cup of the oil with applesauce. I used 1/4 tsp cinnamon and added 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice. It does fine without frosting (especially with pecans in it) but if you want to indulge I recommend the Cream Cheese frosting II (by Janni) from this site, made with PADDYDOG's changes (increasing vanilla & powdered sugar). The search is over, this is the perfect pumpkin cake & frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I followed PABBYDOG's changes, which makes a smaller batch but uses more vanilla and proportionately more confectioner's sugar. Perfect! Put it on Pumpkin Cake III (Sue Case) from this site. The combination is pure heaven!

Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
These are delicious! They didn't convince my kids, but that's not the recipe's fault. I will make these again.
