Peanut Butter Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
This recipe was a lifesaver ! We were in the middle of nowhere in a hunting cabin with limited ingredients and the closest store over an hour away! I had everything on hand to make these and they turned out great!! I made them a bit smaller to make more (this recipe made 4 dz small cookies). Thank you so much!!

Chocolate Tres Leches

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
So easy and delicious. We live down here in south Texas on the border and I use Mexican vanilla in all of my baked dishes. Mexican vanilla has a slight spiciness to it (which is why I believe this recipe calls for cinnamon - Mexican vanilla almost has a cinnamon-y taste to it). That being said, I used Mexican vanilla instead of regular and it was perfect. I do not remove mine from the pan but poke holes in the top and pour on the milk liberally - it always leaves a bit of milk in the bottom of the pan as each piece is removed. This is how we like it down here :) Can't beat this easy recipe! P.S. After chilling overnight we topped it with real whipped cream and garnished with chocolate curls.

Pineapple Filling

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
I loved it! So easy and tasted so good! (I couldn't stop eating it right out of the bowl!) In a pinch I used a 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple (unsweetened) in place of the fresh pineapple and juice. Everything else I kept the same and it turned out perfectly! I'm definitely adding this one to my list! Thank you for sharing the recipe!!

Baked Potato Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
Loved this recipe for the basic idea and for getting me started... read some of the other reviews and made the following changes: I cubed my potatoes (this how I personally like potato salad). After draining and putting potatoes in a bowl I added 1 cup of Miracle Whip (what we use instead of mayo) and then sprinkled 1/2 package of "Hidden Valley Ranch Original" seasoning all over. Added salt and pepper. Add some dry minced onion (what I always have on hand) and a couple of handfuls of shredded colby/monterey jack combo cheese. Mixed all together and put in casserole dish. Topped with the rest of the shredded cheese and crumbled bacon. This was DELISH and I will definitely make it again! So easy and very tasty!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
Living in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas (w/in a few miles of the Mexican border) I've heard about this cake for quite some time and finally tried my hand at making it myself. I followed this recipe exactly and have gotten rave reviews. A couple of people have even said that it was the best Tres Leches cake they'd ever had. Thanks for the recipe!

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
I have lots of requests for this cake and make it often. The only thing that I do different is that I have not been able to find Heath bars around here but I did find "Heath Bits-o-Brickle" in a bag on the aisle with chocolate chips so this is what I use. Another option is to use crushed up butterfinger candy bars in place of the toffee bits - YUM! YUM!

Bacon Cheese Treats

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
I was looking for a savory "finger food" to take to a Christmas party tonight and for something that I had all the ingredients so I didn't have to go to the store.... these fit the bill! After reading the other reviews here are the changes I made: I also used 10-slices of real bacon, drained and crumbled. I added a big handful of shredded cheddar cheese ("mexican blend") and a dash of garlic powder (plus the onion and black pepper called for in the recipe). I did not have any crescent rolls so I used the small 10-count refrigerator biscuits. I pinched each biscuit in half and put them in my mini-muffin pan and pressed them up the sides of each muffin cup. I put the cheese/bacon filling in one of my cake decorating disposable bags and cut off the tip and squeezed a big dollop of filling into each biscuit cup. Baked for about 12 minutes until the biscuits looked done.... VERY YUMMY!!! I will definitely make these again. Thanks, Holli!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies II

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
I followed the recipe with two exceptions: I added a 10 oz. bag of white chocolate chips (almost 2 cups) and only added 5 oz. macadamia nuts. I baked for 9 minutes and they came out perfect! Will definitely make these again. Thanks!
