Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
This is a cake that should be made the day before eating. Allowing the frosting and the flavors of the cake to mix and mingle for a day makes for a better cake. This is my husband's favorite cake, and we always think it tastes best on day 2 or 3.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
This marinade was awesome. My husband couldn't quit eating the chicken we put it on. I will be using this again. I did not change anything in the recipe.

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
This recipe is good...but I am giving it 4 stars because it's too sweet for the vanilla as stated. I took the advice of a few others on here...added cream cheese and 1/2 tsp of milk at a time until I got my desired consistency. If you are making the vanilla portion of this, and the recipe as is, is too sweet for you - add in 1 TB of cream cheese at a time until you get it to your desired sweetness. The cream cheese will take the sweetness down a notch. So I used about 1 3/4 Cup powdered sugar, 1/2 cup (softened -left out for a few hours) butter, 2 tsp milk - put it 1/2 tsp at a time and 2 TB cream cheese (adding 1 TB at a time...and had left this out for a few hours to soften)...oh and 1 tsp vanilla. It covered 18 cupcakes good. If you are making a cake, you will likely have to double the recipe to get enough frosting. This was yummy and easy to make.

Gloomy Day Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
This recipe is great, but I do like my smoothie's cold. Instead of 1 cup of OJ, do 1/3 cup orange concentrate with 2/3 cup ice and fill the ice cup up with cold water. Mango's are a must for this recipe. It's a totally different taste than strawberry's. My husband suggested sprinkling cinnamon on the smoothie and the cinnamon made it awesome. It gives it an awesome aroma when drinking it. So add a little cinnamon and whip cream and it's a great smoothie! this is great for babies too - the triple fruit smoothie w/ blueberries will keep you baby's regular. :-) Vicki

Chicken Berry Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
This recipe is great. I toasted the pecans by putting 1/4 cup melted butter over 3 cups peacans. I added a little brown sugar...maybe 1 tablespoon. What really kicked the pecans was pouring maple syrup over them while cooking - baked the pecans in my little oven @ 350 for about 40 minutes. yummm!!! I didn't have fresh peas or raspberries, so I used frozen and just let them sit for a while to defrost.

Triple Threat Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
I give the smoothie as is 4 stars. I think the peach yogurt makes the peach flavor too strong. I recommend using vanilla yogurt and real peaches. Frozen or fresh is fine. I prefer to have fresh bananas and kiwi and the rest of the fruit frozen so the drink is thicker. My family loves this, and my kids love it too, and are more apt to eat it when I freeze them into popsicle's.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
These muffins are awesome. I didn't know what Wheat Germ or Oat Bran was or where to find it - didn't know if I had to go to a specialty health food place or not. I found them at Kroger's in the hot cereal area. These are not items I would normally have on I'm sure there are others out there asking 'what's Wheat Germ" It's in a bottle and Oat Bran is a hot cereal in a box. These muffins are awesome! Very moist. I tasted more banana than blueberry in it. I replaced the oil with applesauce...replacing it with the same amount asked for. That's all I did. Next time I would use 2 egg whites instead of 1 egg just for it to be a tad healthier. Definately put the nuts in if you have them. GREAT RECIPE!!!
