The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
Wonderful cookies. Be sure to use 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 cup white sugar so they are sweet just like a sugar cookie should be.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
Excellent frosting. Tastes great and is perfect for sugar cookie decorating. Be sure to work with it quickly thought; it does harden rather soon!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
AMAZING frosting! I have been looking for a recipe just like this that so perfectly mimics the ultra sweet velvety textured frosting that Sam's Club puts on their cakes.Thanks!

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Perfectly melt in your mouth shortbread cookie! I rolled mine into a log and chilled it overnight before slicing into 1/4" pieces. Make sure you bake them till they just begin to brown on the edges then let them cool only for a few minutes before removing them from the sheet. If you wait too long they might break.

Scrumptious Frosted Fudgy Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Holy wa, these are wonderful brownies. All I had was 6oz of unsweetened chocolate so I had to top it off with 2oz of semi-sweet chocolate and I don't understand why some people said they tasted too bitter. I haven't even frosted these and they are deliciously sweet, perfectly balanced with the rich chocolate taste. They are nice and light on the outside and fudgy and dense in the middle. I will be using this recipe from now on. Try it, you'll like it!

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Excellent waffles! I don't usually keep flax in the house so I just use quick cooking oats instead. Very tasty, wonderful with homemade, low sugar berry sauce!

Tiny Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Excellent, very good and easy. My dad, who is from the south and LOVES pecans loved these little tarts. Be sure to half the filling, however. I did when I made these and I STILL had some left over! You don't need a tart tamper either... just use your fingers.

excellent, I didn't change a thing and they were very yummy and easy to make. The dough wasn't too sticky and they puffed up beautifully. Will certainly make again!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
Delicious, very easy and simple. The coating does not over power the salmon; it really allows the taste of this wonderful fish to come through.

Cornish Pasties III

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
These were very easy and very good. I used potatoes and carrots and added some minced garlic to the meat while it was cooking. We liked eating ours with a jar of gravy. Ketchup was good too. They were just too dry on their own, otherwise.

Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I had to majorally tweek this to get it to work for me. First, I just used 6 cups of chicken broth, but I probably should have used more. I started with 2 tbsp olive oil and sautéed 1 tbsp minced garlic, then added diced celery and carrots. After cooking for 5 minutes I added about 3 cups of chopped potato. To this I added my broth and rice. Because I was wary that the soup would be too bland, I added 2 tsp dried oregano, 2 tsp dried basil, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 2 tsp dried parsley. I also knew the soup would be WAY to thick using an entire 3/4 cup of flour so I scaled it back to 1/2 cup. I also used whole milk to cut back on the fat a little. When I added the cream mixture to the rice mixture it was more like rice pudding than soup, so I ended up adding another 4 or 5 cups of chicken broth to make it creamy soup consistency. Oh, I also didn't bother with the bacon because I had none. So all in all a good start, and with my changes it turned out to be a nice soup. It was a HUGE batch, however, so I froze some for later. Thanks for the spring board!

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Excellent! A big hit and very easy. I followed another reviewer's tips and made a cream cheese/powdered sugar mixture for the apple pie filling, which I doubled. Very good!

Campbell's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Very good and simple. DO NOT COOK THE RICE IN THE SlOW COOKER. Cook it separately. It will keep your jambalaya from becoming mush!

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
WOW! This was my first attempt at a pork roast and it couldn't have been easier. I had a 3.5lb center cut loin, so I doubled the oil and herb mixture. I also added thyme and basil. I put a little bit of white wine and water into the bottom of the roasting pan and scattered sweet onion slices and baby carrots all over. I placed the loin on the roasting rack and tucked sliced red skin potatoes all around. I sealed the pan with foil and roasted it for two hours without basting. It came out AMAZINGLY moist and perfectly done. I added some salt and pepper to the pan liquids (there was A LOT) and thickened it up to make a delicious gravy. I will most def use this again! Thanks!

Marinated Rib-Eyes

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
I felt this was just ok. It wasn't too sweet or anything, but it just didn't seem to do much for the meat.

Greek-Style Rib Eye Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Excellent and very easy. I used two thin cut ribeyes and instead of frying them I broiled them. Simply rub with the olive oil on both sides and then rub with the spice/herb mixture. Broil 3-5 minutes each side, depending on the thickness of your steaks and how done you want them to be. Excellent with a cucumber salad.
