Cola Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
My husband says these are a 5! Although some of them stuck to the grill (mostly on the hot spots and next time I will avoid those), they were INCREDIBLY moist and juicy! These are best cooked slow. We slapped some provolone on and we were GOOD TO GO! YUMmmmY!!

Cranberry Sauce Chicken II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
This was good, got a thumbs up from my hubby, my 12 yr old son and an eh..ok from my 15 yr old son. I thought it was good, but not what I was expecting. I baked 6 b/s breasts in a 13x9 pan, poured the sauce over all(rather than coating the pcs) and covered it as directed. Cooked for 1 hour, which was probably about 10 to 15 min's too long. Next time I make these I will just coat the chicken and bake them on a cookie sheet with an edge or just not cover them. The sauce came out on the thin side so I reduced it down in a pan on the stove. My sauce wasn't as red and didn't coat the chicken like the picture, but it tasted really good with yellow rice! Thanks for the easy recipe!

Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
I took this to my son's pot luck, end-of-band-camp dinner. I served it in a blue glass lasagna pan and I had a lady tracking the pan to ask for the recipe at the end of the night, lol! I was told by the lady manning the table, that everybody wanted the recipe, SO, it was a fabulous success! It disappeared super quick. I only used about 3.5lbs of potatoes, about 4 to 5 cups of cheese (sprinkled 1/2 c on top about 10 min's before it was done). I also only used 12 strips of bacon and half of a large onion. I used the full amount of sr cream and red. fat mayo. Prepared the day before, then cooked about 1 hour.

Cheesy Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
This was great! I used ground turkey and seasoned with italian seasoning, salt and pepper instead of the Italian sausage. I must've overstuffed some of the shells because I ran short of stuffing. But, it still made enough to fill my lasagna pan all the way! I also used the whole jar of sauce. Stuffing the shells is a little time consuming, but much easier than I thought it would be. I added a little shredded italian chz blend to the stuffing along with the grated parm. I may try the Italian sausage next time. I highly recommend this recipe!

Heavenly Shortbread

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
This was good. My first time making shortbread. I used margarine as I didn't have butter. I also added about a tsp of vanilla. They came out pretty good. Seemed a little thick in a 15 X 11 jelly roll pan. The middle didn't get as crispy as i'd have liked but the edges did. May try the cookie scoop and pressing them out with the bottom of a cup next time. I added colorful sprinkles before I baked them, and drizzled with a little melted dark chocolate after they cooled. It made them even better!

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Oh man, I'm in heaven... I made these almost exactly as written 'cept I used my tub margarine (melted) on top. These are SOOOO good!!! It seems like there's too much melted butter (margarine) and sugar on top, but the sugar hardens like on creme brulee and it's SO SO GOOD! I would cook it for the full 30 min's if not more. I did mine for 33 and could probably cook it more for an even crisper top. Just watch it after 30 min's.

Grilled Chuck Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
I had to substitute apple cider vinegar for the red wine vinegar (it's what I had on hand) and I used brown sugar for the sugar. Based on those changes, this was pretty good. I have to say tho, I like the london broil marinade that I got off this site better. THANKS!

Apple Cake V

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
My best advice? Double the sauce! Don't put it ALL on the cake, save some to drizzle over each piece. I didn't use any fat in the cake, I used only 1 1/2 c sugar (instead of 2), 1 1/4 c unsweet applesauce (instead of oil) and 3/4 c egg beaters (instead of eggs). I used 4 c chopped granny smith apples and added tsp allspice and tbsp cinnamon. For the sauce I used my tub margarine (only 6 gm fat per tbsp) and it worked fine! This was one of the best desserts I have ever made. It's REALLY good warm and if you run out of sauce, use ice cream or frozen yogurt, YUUUUMMY!!! I think the fact that it was made lower fat made it taste EVEN better!!!

Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
This was good. I added garlic powder and a little thyme to the flour, doubled the sauce ingredients,and used a mix of chicken broth and wine. I browned the chicken in olive oil with a couple tsp of margarine. I added minced garlic to that which I don't recommend as mine burned. I would wait till half way thru the cooking time to add the garlic if you do. I also added mushrooms. The sauce and chicken tasted AMAZING. My only suggestion is if you are going to make this to serve on pasta (as I did), I would at LEAST quadruple the sauce ingredients. I did run short and had to add parm and butter to the pasta. The mushrooms added so much to the dish, they absorbed the flavor of the sauce nicely. Thanks for the great recipe!

Dreamy Cream-Filled Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
These came out really good! I used a triple chocolate fudge cake mix and oversized muffin tins. The frosting I used for the filling was Betty Crocker's Whipped Cream Cheese (the best canned frosting EVER). I frosted the tops with my butter cream icing. Everybody FLIPPED for these! And they were easy to fill with an icing bag and tip!!

Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
I made these according to everyone else's suggestions. I used a devils food cake mix and 1 regular size box of instant pudding. This did make the batter nice and thick so it was easier to shape into a circle with the back of a spoon. I used a HEAPING tablespoon full of batter and used parchment paper (about 9 per cookie sheet). Baked for about 20 min.'s per batch. They came out PERFECT!!! For the filling I didn't make the flour mixture on the stove I just mixed 1/2 c butter flavored crisco, 1 1/4 c powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 3 or 4 tbsp milk, and 3/4 c marshmallow fluff. Mixed with my mixer on highest speed till it was nice and fluffy. The tint is light yellow from the butter crisco, but WHO CARES! It tasted AMAZING! Yes there is a little work involved, but it is OH so worth it. The kids went NUTZ!

The Best Frikin' Party Dip Ever!

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009

We make this for EVERY get together cuz if we don't, people complain! You will be licking the bowl, I guarantee it!!!

Baked Potato Skins

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
These were good, I used small red potatoes and cooked them in the microwave first. I was worried about the skins not being thick enough to hold up to all the scooping. Except for a couple of splits while they were cooking, most of them turned out really good and were easy to scoop! I put a little feta in a couple with the cheddar just to see what they tasted like. Naturally they were AWESOME! Thanks for the recipe! :)

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Ok, I made this EXACTLY as directed, mixing almost constantly to try to keep the butter from seperating. I don't know WHAT happened. I got these little and some bigger pockets of PURE BUTTER! While the candy tasted good, their were these butter pockets!! I couldn't put this in my goody bags, but I did save it in case my family wanted to eat around the butter. I think there is just TOO much butter in this recipe. IF I were to attempt this again, I would try it with just 1 cup and see if that worked. OR, i'll just try to find a recipe that works. Thanks anyway!

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
This was REALLY good. The sausage I used must've been lean, cuz it didn't render much fat! I ended up adding a couple of tsp of margarine and added the flour right to the pan with the meat in it still as directed. Worked out GREAT! Make sure you add pepper and salt to taste. My only advice is if you DON'T like very meaty sausage gravy, then only use half the meat and patty up the rest. BUT, any fat you get (from the crumbled sausage AND the pattied sausage), add/leave it in the pan for the gravy and FLAVOR! I made this the night before (christmas eve) and reheated it in a pan Christmas morning. I just added a little milk to thin it as it warmed. I think making it over night allowed the sausage to meld more with the creamy part because it tasted even better in the morning! I made the Pillsbury frozen biscuits (they puff up so nice) and turkey sausage patties. It was a very hearty breakfast and held us over till Christmas dinner! Thanks for the easy and great recipe!

Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
My biggest recommendation on these is DON'T refrigerate them. They get very HARD if you do! The taste was good and the few ingredients were economical, but they are VERY time consuming and MESSY to roll. I used my food processor to make the cookie crumbs and added the cream cheese in it. If I were to make this again, but I don't think I will because of the time involved, I would crush some of the cookies by hand to give it some more texture and chunks. Cool idea tho! Thanks!

Mint Chocolate Cookie Crunch

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
This was alright. I doubled the mint extract. I also used cocoa crispies instead of rice crispies. They get REALLY hard in the fridge, so I would recommend serving at room temperature. They also aren't very pretty in appearance. If they could be molded in some way, it would make them more visually appealing.

Chicken Salad Puffs

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I gave this 5 stars even tho I COULDN'T make the puffs..it was a disaster! I've never tried to make them before so I'm sure it was my inexperience that did it. I still made the chicken salad part, and it was SO GOOD! I used the crushed pineapple, walnuts(instead of pecans, too expensive!)and celery. I omitted the onions and the relish and added some pineapple tid bits chopped a little more for some bigger chunks. I ended up using store bought dinner rolls (potato and hawaiian) to put them on and just made mini chicken salad sandwiches. Thanks for the recipe!!

Mini Crescent Dogs

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
Holy cow were these ever good! So simple and FUN to put together! They disappeared quickly at my little get together. I had also made mini chicken salad sandwiches (on dinner rolls), pineapple cream cheese/ham pin wheels (with flour tortillas), and artichoke cheesy square (bundles). All were a hit, but out of all of those, THESE are what everyone liked the best. I served them with Honey Mustard Sauce off of this site (see my reviews for recipe. Also very easy and good). Will DEFINITELY make again! Thanks!
