Bacon and Date Appetizer

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
Everytime I make this for a party - everyone loves it. Important to make on a broiler pan so that grease with drain off while cooking.

Love this recipe. I've made a couple of adjustments: add 1/2 cup of fresh grated parmesan and use all 10oz of the spinach.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
My husband who doesn't like oatmeal raisin cookies even likes these. Soaking the raisins really makes a big difference. Easy and great recipe.

Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Fabulous dessert - family loved it. Loved the choc. sauce and the dry roasted pnuts were fine. Next time I will bake in springform pan as others suggested - 9x13 pan takes up alot of space in the freezer. Also as someone else said, take out of freezer about 15 minutes before serving - very hard to cut.

Sesame Chicken Strips with Sweet Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Turned out okay - just a little bland. May try again with some added spices. Good for a healthy version of chicken fingers.

Spinach Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
Husband and I really liked this. But followed advice of some of the other reviewers: Added 1-2 cloves of minced garlic to the sautee. Sprinkled lemon pepper on chicken before coating in Parmesan. Also used all 10oz of spinach - may want to add just a touch more milk if you do.

Minted Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
Was excited about making this for Christmas dinner but was a little disappointed with the result. There wasn't enough of the chocolate frosting and the mint cool whip just okay on the cake.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
Only used the sauce from this recipe - had frozen breaded tilapia filets that I baked and broke into pieces for the tacos. Followed the rest of the recipe and the sauce tasted great.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
The best brownies! So good. Those who said they turned out like cake most likely cooked them too long. I've made them twice, cooking only for 25 minutes in a glass dish and they turned out fudge-like both times and tasted great. Only change was I reduced conf. sugar to 1/2 C because some reviewers said the frosting was too sweet. Also, if the butter is truly soft - mixing the frosting is not a problem at all.

Berry Trifle

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
This recipe was excellent. Wanted to make a 4th of July dessert - this is what I did. Used Sour Cream Pound Cake III from this site for the prepared cake (but only used half the cake and froze the rest to use later). Cube the cake and place half in bottom of bowl, top with half of the fresh blueberries & strawberries, pour half the pudding mix over it then repeat the layers. Top with whip cream. Skipped the liqueur - didn't have it on hand.

Prize Winning Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
My husband and I loved this recipe - great flavor and great directions on grilling the ribs. We had been grilling them without the aluminum foil therefore they always burned. I did take a reviewer's advice and cut down the cumin by half. Easy prep and tasted great!

Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Great flavor - I do add green/red peppers and onion to the mix and marinate. I took the advice of another reviewer and boiled the bacon for a few minutes before wrapping around chicken so it wouldn't burn on the grill. Makes the recipe even more time consuming with the bacon wrapped chicken and setting up the skewers but we really like it.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Thought these were great and my company loved them too. I took the other reviewer's suggestions and used milk chocolate chips and less sugar. Also, didn't have any problem with cutting them (chocolate crumbling) because I added a little shortening when melting the choc chips.

Spicy Tortilla Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
These are really good. The mixture only covered about 4 tortillas so you may want to double it.
