Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Excellent! I used about 5 cups of berries, 1/4 cup cornstarch and I sprinkled the bottom crust with some flour before putting the fruit in. No runny filling for me! Instead of doing two crusts, I topped this with the topping from "Apple Crumble Pie." It was summery and sweet and delicious!

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Awesome. Spicy and delish. I only used 1/4 cup brown sugar and (due to laziness) didn't peel the apples. I just chopped them up and threw them in. Even the baby loved it!

Pig Pickin' Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Followed the recipe to a T and it was divine! Nice and light for a summer dessert. Even my husband, who said this sounded "disgusting," agreed that it was excellent. My only future edit might be to use one 8oz tub of Cool Whip instead of 2 (16oz total). We had a TON of frosting on the cake and there was still a good 2 cups we didn't use. Still, we happily ate that with a spoon so maybe the amount is perfect, lol!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
5 stars all the way! So simple, so easy, so fast and SOOO good! We didn't change anything and the sauce was perfect for 2# of chicken breasts. This is good enough to serve to company!

Fruit Pizza II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
SO delicious. We added a thin layer of melted dark chocolate under the cream cheese layer, which I think took the dessert to an amazing level of goodness! The chocolate and orange complimented each other beautifully and the chocolate helped keep the sugar cookie from getting too soft. I baked this in a large springform pan and it the cookie formed a "rim" so it looked like a beautiful bakery tart (tasted like one too). A wonderful recipe!

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
Perfect! I made mini muffins (32 total) and they were delicious. I subbed the buttermilk with lemon yogurt and reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup. I used 1-1/2 cups blueberries total. Will definitely make again!

Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
I wasn't too impressed by these. I initially thought, "won't the marshmallows just dissolve into it?" And that's exactly what they did. So IMO, it was just a very soft chocolate chip cookie bar. The flavor was nice though, so if you like really cake-y bars, then go ahead and make them. But I can think of many better uses of the marshmallows.

Round Steak and Gravy II

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Wow, this was delicious. We used the "healthy request" cream of mushroom soup and you couldn't even tell the difference! We also added 1/2 teaspoon each of black pepper and garlic, cooked in the crock pot on low for 8 hours-ish. It was SO easy and warm and tasty! Will definitely make again.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
Wow! I wasn't sure if I'd be able to do a "from scratch" chocolate cake, but this recipe worked fantastically! The cake is absolutely delicious. I even made "healthy" substitutions and it still turned out fantastic. I used part Splenda, part white sugar, increased the cocoa to 1 cup, substituted strong coffee for water and used 1/2 cup applesauce instead of oil. It baked perfectly and tastes delish topped with chocolate frosting.

Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
I used all butter (no shortening) and vanilla fat-free yogurt. I substituted the chocolate chips with 1c butterscotch chips and 1c chopped cashews. Flavor-wise, these were out of this world! (I VERY highly recommend the cashew-butterscotch combo, it's delish.) Texture-wise, these were very soft. I prefer some amount of crisp to my cookies, so I wasn't a huge fan of this. But still, they were great-tasting.

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
Oh my god, these were amazing! I had to scale the recipe down slightly for a 12 oz box of shells, but otherwise, I left everything the same. I prepped the noodles and cheese mixture the day before to minimize prep time, which worked great. I also used the Ziploc bag "loading" method (very easy!) I baked it for 20 minutes with foil and then 15 minutes uncovered. It worked and tasted AMAZING!

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
These were divine! I replaced the oil with applesauce and was somewhat worried they might be dry/tough, but they aren't at all. They're amazingly delicious and very, very healthy! We used cranberries, but I can't wait to try raisins, apples, chocolate chips, etc. Thanks for the near-perfect recipe for a great morning treat!

Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
Mmm, SO easy and SO good. Very warming dish to serve on a cold day and even easy and quick enough to prep on a weeknight! My only complaints were the saltiness and the lack of gravy. I may add more water next time to "dilute" it a bit and add more liquid. Still delicious though!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
Wow! This was fabulous. The only change I made was to use 1 cup of cheddar instead of 2. (That was definitely plenty of cheese.) We only had "italian" breadcrumbs in the house, so I used those and they added a wonderful flavor. I highly recommend them!! I don't even particularly LIKE quiche (too spongy in texture usually), but THIS was excellent. Seriously! I can't wait till tonight to eat the leftovers.

Red Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
Yum! I used 5 cups of red peppers and substituted fat-free evaporated milk for the heavy cream. The soup was perfect -- rich and delicious, but not too heavy and over-the-top flavorful/salty. It was really awesome. I kept picturing eating it during a fancified "ladies lunch" with elegant grilled sandwiches and a salad. Perfection!

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
Oh yeah, these are GREAT! I did change a couple of things, so here it is: First of all, I doubled the recipe and it worked great. (I'll write my changes as if I *didn't* double it, however, to make it more simple.) No baking powder ... I was nervous about this, but it was an excellent suggestion ... the brownies were SO dense and moist! Only 2 eggs ... worked fine. 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup butter ... you couldn't even tell it was just a little healthier! Added 1 cup of chocolate chips ... yep, this is chocolate mania OVERLOAD, but it was so awesome!!! For chocolate lovers, indulge in these ... they're delish!

Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
I'm rating this a 5 because the end result is absolutely awesome!!! (They taste like the Archway brand molasses cookies, which in my opinion is a HUGE compliment.) That being said, I had an incredibly difficult times working with the dough. It was very sticky and gloopy. I kept having to stick the dough and then the formed balls and THEN the formed balls rolled in sugar into the freezer to get it to firm up enough to bake. The resulting cookies were pretty flat, but VERY delicious. I may reduce the butter or increase the flour next time. Did anyone else have this problem???

Peanut Butter Cookies IV

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2006
this is THE pb cookie recipe for me ... i love it! it tastes just the way a peanut butter cookie should :) if you want them to stay soft, freeze or refrigerate your dough before baking (and i mean, once they're on the sheets, not before shaping them. just pop them into the freezer for about 5 minutes and then into the oven to bake.) they stay really soft that way (as long as you don't overbake!) if you like 'em crispy (like i do!), don't do that step. anyway, great cookies! last time i put reese's pieces and it added a nice chocolate touch without being overpowering. also, it makes like 28-30 normal sized cookies (48 would be little bite-sized guys!) Enjoy!

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2006
wow, with a few adjustments (huge thanks to everybody's reviews!), these are FANTASTIC! it's just me and my boyfriend, so i halved the recipe. still, we used 8" tortillas and ended up with 15 wraps! not that we mind, cuz they're so good :) we added taco seasoning to the rice after cooking it, so the flavors could blend while it cooled. (i used the "taco seasoning I" recipe off this site) also, we added cilantro (mmm...) and a 4 ounce can of chiles. i used about 3/4 cup of the mixture per wrap (remember, 8" tortillas) and they are SO filling and delicious with sour cream and salsa. thanks for a healthier, yet still quick and easy alternative to "lean pockets!"
