Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
These cookies were good, but I would bake them different next time. I followed some of the other suggestions and used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortening. Every time I tasted the batter I thought, "Gross" b/c of the shortening flavor. It kinda ruined it for me even after the cookies were baked... it was like I could still taste the underlying shortening flavor. Next time I will use the 1 cup of butter as the recipe indicates. I also added about 1 cup dark chocolate chips and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips - this definitely saved the recipe and gave it the 4 stars.I also only baked the 8 minutes so they would remain a little gooey!

Candy Corn Bark

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
This is good and addicting! I changed the recipe slightly since I don't care for raisins. Instead, I used 1 cup Peanut M&M's. 1 cup of candy corn is plenty. Had I put the additional cup on the top, it would have been completely covered. An easy way to break the chilled chocolate - set it on a cutting board, hang small piece off over the edge (table underneath), hold chocolate down with one hand, and press down on the piece that is hanging off over the edge. I did this with wax paper on top and bottom of chocolate mixture so as not to get my hands all over it. Much easier than attempting to cut with a knife!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
This is very yummy icing and dries perfect! I had to add extra milk (1/2 tsp at a time) to get to right consistency. I had to make 2 batches of icing to cover the cookies initially.I also tried using both vanilla and almond extract - the vanilla tastes better (in my opinion). Be sure to add your food coloring while trying to get the right consistency of your icing - my red turned out too thin by the time I put enough drops in it. I also used a icing bag with piping tip to decorate (worked great). Be sure to allow plenty of time for icing to dry - may still be wet inside even though looks dry on outside! Cookies will smear otherwise.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
These are very yummy but were really a pain to make! I added an extra cup of sugar and doubled the vanilla. I refrigerated my dough over night, but when I went to use it the following day it was very sticky - impossible to roll out (possibly due to humidity in the south?). I tried using flour and confectioners sugar on my rolling pin but with no success. I ended up having to roll balls of dough in my hands and flatten them with the bottom of a flat cup dipped in flour. Then I did one cookie cutter at a time having to re-do dough each time. I also did everything on parchment paper, so cookies slid right off after cooking. This was very time consuming, but turned out really great. Also, the dough got stickier the longer it sat out. I would definitely make these again, but not in shapes that are hard to ice (like stars)!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
This recipe is Awesome!! Probably one of my new favorite chicken recipes and so easy to make! The one cup of cracker crumbs was just enough for 3 really large boneless chicken breasts. I also figured out is was easier to put the crumbs on a plate rather than in a bowl to dredge. I'm already looking forward to the leftovers tonight!!

Acapulco Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
The recipe was good, but nothing exceptional. I did like that it was spicy, easy/quick to make, and was carb friendly! I would make again.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly and the dish was way too soupy! I also cooked at a higher temp (330) for at least an additional 10 minutes. The potatoes were still not quite done. The flavors in the recipe were very good, so I am willing to try it again. I wanted to try the original recipe before altering it with the other suggested reviews.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
This bruschetta is very good! I don't always like bruschetta, but this recipe is very good. The oils taste great as well as the sun dried tomatoes. I like my mixture sit over night to really absorb the flavors. My guests said it was the best they had ever had!

Chocolate Mousse Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
This pie was very good! I used some 1 tsp amaretto in place of 1 tsp of the water (in the chocolate mixture) for an extra almond flavor. I also made a homemade Oreo crust to go with it.

Gooey Butter Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
This is so good! The recipe I have for this is called Neiman Marcus Cake. The only difference is no vanilla in the cake mix part and add a little cinnamon in the cream cheese mixture. I also only baked it 35 minutes. Yummy!!!!!

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
Yum! This trifle turned out delicious and beautiful! I followed the suggestion of others and used 1/2 pint of whipping cream mixed with 3 Tbsp of sugar instead of the 8 oz cool whip. The chocolate mixture was thick and wonderful! I also used a peanut butter cup brownie mix and everyone kept asking what tasted so good in the brownies. I garnished with mini chocolate chips and Oreo crumbs I had left over from another dessert I was making.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
This recipe was good. I had to use a bigger baking dish (12x14 I think) as a 9x13 wasn't near big enough! This recipe makes a ton and lasts for several days in the fridge.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
I was fairly disappointed in this recipe. I thought that the chocolate cookie part was very bland. I may would try this again with a different cookie dough recipe. I also added 1 Tbsp of milk to the dough and refrigerated it while preparing the filling. For those that have had trouble with a crumbly PB filling... keep smashing the PB and conf sugar with the mixing spoon until the PB begins to get a little oily. As far as wrapping the cookies in the dough, I had no problem. I took about 1 Tbsp of cookie dough and smashed it flat with my palm on my cutting board. I set a PB ball in the middle and wrapped it kinda like a burrito. I then rolled it around in my palm similar to the way I did with the PB balls. All of the cookies were nice, round balls until I flattened them a little with a flat glass. I used a tsp to sprinkle them with sugar. The cookies turned out very pretty, but lacked in taste for me. =(

Chocolate Mudslide Frozen Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
I fixed this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! I made a crust out of Oreos and margarine. This pie is best left in the freezer. It doesn't get too hard. The topping is AMAZING!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
These were yummy! I inserted toothpicks in the strawberries and used a wooden spoon to either coat the strawberries in chocolate or roll the strawberry in the chocolate. When I tried dipping them while the chocolate was in the double boiler, the steam kept burning me and the strawberries kept falling off. It was much easier the other way. =)

Bacon Cheese Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
I thought this recipe was okay, but everyone else seemed to really like them. I used one 4.4 oz container of bacon bits and you could barely see the cream cheese. I couldn't image using nearly 3 containers to equal the 12 oz that the recipe calls for.

Caramel Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
I make this pie all the time and everyone loves it! I use the fat free sweetened condensed milk and it tastes just as good! I also allow my cans to cool for 40 minutes on one side, then flip over for another 40 minutes. If not, there is a build-up of pressure and it's a pain to open the cans. I let the pie cool in the fridge for at least 8 hours, otherwise the caramel is not sweet. Be sure to add the cool whip after it has cooled b/c it will melt if the pie is still warm. I also garnish with mini chocolate chips.
