Blackberry Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
I made this pie as a last resort because I couldn't find a better recipe that didn't include the pineapple/orange juice. It was a hit at the women's group I took it to. However, I was unhappy with the citrus taste that overpowered the pie just a little. I think it took away from the best part of the pie, the blackberries! I think I will use the same recipe next time but use a berry juice instead of the citrus juice that the recipe called for. I was pleased overall though!

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
I searched high and low for a recipe that didn't have mayo as an ingredient. This was a huge hit at my party... my grandma couldn't stay away! I will definitely make this again in the future. Some tips: I did add cheddar cheese like some suggested. I also cut the crust before I put on the ranch/dill spread and veggies. It made it really easy to serve. Thanks for sharing!

I love this cookie... especially when the cookie is still warm and the chocolate is slightly melted.... mmm. Just made this for a party and they were a huge hit. I will make these again and again.

Cranberry-Pineapple Minis

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
These were a good dessert that was different. I previously didn't know you could do Jell-o in cupcake papers. It worked out nicely. They weren't however outstanding, that's why I gave it four starts. I may make them again... they really didn't make an impression on my family.

Lighter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
A wondeful muffin that I am not afraid to eat in the morning. Thanks for the lighter recipe. I added the applesauce and cinnamon like suggested.

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
I couldn't get the center of the cake to cook. I see that another user had this same problem. I finally had to take it out of the oven because I was afraid that the outside edges of the cake would over dry and maybe burn. I am rating it 3 stars because the outside edge of the cake was good but we couldn't eat the center. I probably won't make this again.

Banana Cake IX

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
Amazing cake! I know my family is going to love this! I used butter instead of shortening. I also didn't know what 3 banans really meant, as they are all different sizes. So I decided to take a guess and use 2 cups of mashed bananas. I will use that much again! I also toasted some walnuts and sprinkled on top before baking. It took 35 minutes and I used a slightly smaller glass baking dish to get a higher cake (11x 7) or 2.2 quart. You won't be disappointed!

Green Banana Fries

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
These fries weren't bad... but the description is a little deceiving. They still taste like bananas, don’t be fooled. Your kids won’t think you went to McDonald’s!

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
I finally had bananas that were ripe enough to try this recipe. It was super moist and yummy. You definitely need to bake it the whole hour. I followed advice of fellow recipe users and had great success. (Replaced margarine with butter, used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown, added 1/2 t vanilla, cut the flour down to 1&1/2 cups)

Candy Bar Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
I was looking for something light with chocolate and caramel goodness. I decided to try this recipe and make one pudding layer chocolate and one layer caramel. I also used Caramello as my candy bar. My was this exactly what I was looking for! Instead of stirring in the candy pieces to the cream cheese layer, I would place the candy chunks where you want them so they don't clump together. (I originally tried to make homemade caramel pudding and it was a disaster. So in the end I used one box of vanilla pudding and added 2 &1/2 tablespoons of caramel sundae sauce. It tasted exactly how I was hoping.)

Banana Split Cake IV

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
This recipe has great potential... and I'm glad I listened to my baking/cooking instincts. The cream cheese layer as posted is way too sticky and overpowering sweet. I fell back on my staple cream cheese/powdered sugar recipe and doubled it for this cake. I'm glad I did! I used the remaining of the stick of butter (6 T) to make the crust and baked it like suggested. I also added chocolate chips and walnuts to the top. I got rave reviews and a request for the recipe. Thanks for sharing an eggless version!

Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
I really liked this recipe. I did add some thyme and garlic salt like the review suggested. I also mixed half panko and seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs... just trying to use up things mainly. Loved it! (I baked it like others suggested and it turned out lovely.)

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
I think this may be the best banana bread I have ever had.... even tops my moms! Sorry mom! I cut the recipe in half and it tasted just fine. Will definitely turn to this recipe again and again. (I used whole wheat flour and it was absolutely scrumptious.)

Scalloped Potatoes and Hamburger

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
I'm not sure why this has super high ratings from some people. It was very bland and not a dish that I would ever think of making again. I even added garlic and cheddar cheese like some people suggested! It was edible, just very boring and not much flavor.

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
This recipe was really good. I followed the other users advice and just put the pesto and mozzarella cheese on top and covered it to bake. I also seasonsed the chicken a little with salt, pepper, and garlic powder before adding the pesto and cheese. It turned out pretty good and I will definitely make it again.
