Chocolate-Covered OREO Cookie Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2014
Everyone else in the family raved- but it was really sweet, needs more crushed Oreo and the chocolate on top was a bit thick. That said, it has been requested for three birthdays in a row...

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
1st: recipe with the common corrections was awesome. 2nd: review from Feb 23, 2011 by CelticSmiles: This review had me laughing for ten minutes. I am GLAD that you + your DH finished off the 4 servings you made. There isn't much, but it's still alcohol and coffee and I personally wouldn't admit to serving this to your KIDS.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I'm not a big fan of cheesecake, so this wasn't my favorite. That said, the entire 9 by 14 pan was GONE at the potluck I took it to, which I consider a great success. Also fabulous was the short time in which all of it came together. Thanks for the crowd pleaser!

Pavlova Deluxe

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
Yum. That's all I can say about this easy, elegant and tasty desert. Works great with a big dollop of cream and tons of fresh raspberries.

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
Yum! Little thick, took longer to bake and then almost burned. Still quite moist and tasty, thanks!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
Took a bit of time to make, but really tasty. Love the sauce, doubled it up. Was worried when the stuffing started coming a bit unstuffed but that was my fault, not the recipe. Served with rice and asapargus at a ladies dinner, everyone loved it!

This is sitting in my fridge right now, waiting to be eaten. Looks and smells awesome... will post update after we eat the entire thing. Doubled the coffee just like everyone else.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
It was too much. But very tasty- I melted homemade raspberry jam and used that as a filling between two layers of cake from two 9 inch rounds. Frosted with white standard frosting and decorated with fresh raspberries for a 35th birthday cake for my boyfriend! Tasty, yes. Probably better as a standard bundt cake however- it lost some moisture being a layer cake, I think.

Easy Pavlova

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
YUM! Mine cracked like mad, even though I left it in the oven to cool. However, it was SO GOOD. Crunchy outside, chewy marshmallow-like layer inside. Very cool dessert!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
I cooked the bird breast-side down, added some myer lemon into the cavity and it turned out fabulous! We couldn't "find' the breast back at first, since I forgot I had cooked the thing upside down, but once we did....YUM. Boiled down the leftover bones for stock and had plenty left for a tasty soup the next day. $3 chicken: 3 great meals!

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Really easy to cook in slow cooker, liked the tangy sauce on top, but it was a bit sweet. Doubled the sauce per other remarks. Boyfriend and his son both wolfed it down- but it was a little "flimy" on top (even though I used 93/7% fat beef). Still, I'd make it again with my long work schedule. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
First split pea soup I've made that tasted good. (It was a curse, not sure why I couldn't do it in a regular soup pot, I just messed it up several times before). Thanks for a quick and easy recipe! We used turkey sausage and broth instead of bullion. This is WELL worth making a day ahead- it only gets better the next day.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I think I forgot to put the water in, but no worries, it was perfectly tasty and soupy anyway. I threw the chicken in pieces raw and it cooked up in 4 1/2 hours no problem. We had it with cheese, lime, sour cream, avocado and cilantro on top. BF said it was "good" which is what he says about EVERYTHING. What it really means is "make this again a few hundred times, I'll eat it every time". thanks!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Incredibly moist. Used 2 cups sugar, 3 cups zucchini, just threw everything in the kitchenaid. One 9 by 13 pan and one loaf disappeared in two days thanks to a voracious boyfriend and his 9-year old son. Thanks for making me look like a good baker, despite ignoring sifting and creaming and the like. Going to try this with 1/2 applesauce next time, but amazing written as is. Thanks!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
Not my favorite. Followed recipe perfectly, not sure what happened, but it seemed pretty dense overall. Thanks-

Deep-Dish Blackberry Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
BF loved this, I thought is was a bit too much dough for the tasty blackberries. Still awesome though, I'd give it 4 1/2.

Oh yeah. SO good, just as is. Didn't completely follow measurements, but this can't go wrong. Thanks!

Vietnamese Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
Really tasty and very fast, but it was missing something. Added thin sliced pickled jalapenos, and julienne carrots pickled in vinegar and a little bit of salt and sugar. Added some honey and lime to the pork marinade and bf ate three! Thanks!

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Was "gifted" a seven pound monster zucchini. Proceeded to make 14 loaves of bread. It's saying something when you can eat ALL of it in two weeks without getting sick of it. Gave some of it back to the original "gifter" of the zucchini and another one showed up with a note requesting more bread. Thanks, (I think,) for the awesome recipe. Next time I quadruple a recipe, I'll think about the size of my mixer. :)

Three-Meat Stromboli

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Boyfriend and his son gobbled up two of these. Like everything I make, they always question it and then eat every bite. Tastes like pizza, acts like pizza, of course they will like it. :)
