Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
This is so easy and came out so good! I didn't change a thing and came out with toffee that my whole family raved over.

Coco-Cola Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
This was surprisingly good. It was quite moist and almost more like a brownie than cake.

Garden Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Great salad, we really enjoyed this. About three quarters of a bottle of salad dressing is more than enough, two full bottles would have been overwhelming. I used fresh Asiago cheese instead of Parmesan. I added nsome sliced fresh mushrooms and next time I'll add some sliced black olives as well.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
Great recipe. Very simple. I added extra garlic and loved it, but really there is enough garlic in the recipe to begin with and a little bit more goes a long way.

Roll-Out Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
This dough was the perfect playdough texture to work with, and it didn't have to be chilled! The cookies baked beautifully and were so much fun to decorate. They were an excellent, flaky texture, not too hard and tasted excellent. I didn't have lemon extract, so I used almond extract as suggested by others, and they came out great.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
This was super easy and made great corned beef. I used an Irish beer, of course, and didn't change a thing in the recipe. Once the beef is cooked, let it cool in the fridge and it will slice beautifully. We made Rueben's from the sliced meat that were awesome.

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Great recipe. I double dipped my strips as recommended by other reviewers, which required that I double the flour/bread crumb mixture, otherwise, I did everything exactly as shown in the recipe. This officially replaces my previous recipe.

Cola Pot Roast I

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Wow, this came out really good! I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding one clove minced garlic (we like garlic). I did cook on low longer than the 2.5 hours in the recipe, but I'm used to cooking roasts very slowly anyway. The roast came out very tender and moist and well flavored. Family loved it. Next time I will make gravy from the liquid on the roast and serve with egg noodles.

Creamy Dill Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
Very quick and easy to make. I made Fast Salmon Patties from this site and served with this dipping sauce. Just perfect. I did substitute the fresh dill with dried dill -- Sub 2 tsp. dried for the 2 TBSP fresh. Let the flavors blend for a bit in the fridge to get the best taste.

Speedy Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2008
These were really good and really quick to make. As suggested by other reviewers, I doubled the crackers. I also added one clove minced garlic. Otherwise, I made the recipe as posted. Served with Creamy Dill Sauce from this site. Great, quick dinner!

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
These are a ton of work, but worth every minute. I blanched the peppers for 3 minutes prior to filling. I also wound up doubling the flour/bread crumb mixture. I cooked the bacon first, and added quite a bit more of it. Otherwise, followed the recipe to the "T". I did wind up freezing about half of the uncooked poppers for another day. We'll see how they do thawed and cooked.

Apple Fritters I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I was trying to replicate the Apple Fritters that the convenience store chain, QuikTrip, used to have. The ones they have now are just not the same. This recipe came darn close with the couple of modifications I made. As suggested, I doubled the nutmeg and added 1 tea. Cinnamon. I also increased the sugar to 1/3 cup. As suggested by another reviewer, I diced the apples and microwaved them for 4 minutes, then put them, liquid and all, into the batter and dropped the batter in 1/4 cupfuls into hot oil. Instead of dusting with sugar when done, I made a glaze of 1 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 Tbsp. light corn syrup and 2 Tbsp. water, and drizzled that over the fritters. It dries to a sweet, slightly hard and crunchy glaze on the fritter. My husband says these are closer to the old QT fritters than what they have in the store now, but could be fried just a bit thinner and crispier. Next time I'll add one more apple and see if that doesn't thin the cakey-ness down just a hair. Great recipe!

Pizza Crust for Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
Great crust! We like a thin crust, so we found that one batch of this will make two medium-sized thin crust pizzas. The only thing I did different was add 1 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning for a little extra kick! This bakes on a pizza stone wonderfully.

Crab Rangoon III

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
DS loves these! The default recipe with 15 servings is definitely way too much for the three of us, so I use one can of crab meat and a half a package of cream cheese. I leave out the water chestnuts.

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
Definitely substitute green onions for chives. I'm not really sure how chives wound up in the ingredients list considering the picture shows green onions. With the appropriate substitution, this is very good! Served this with Crab Rangoon III and Chicken Stir-Fry and it made quite the meal.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
Very good, we all enjoyed it. I added fresh mushrooms this time, and next time I'll add some water chestnuts and/or bamboo shoots.

Ultimate Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
The only modifications I made to this recipe were to saute the onion prior to adding it to the other ingredients. I also added a minced clove of garlic, also sauted. I used an average-sized onion and it left the dish with an overtly oniony taste. I will definitely decrease the onion quite a bit next time. I also added more cheese, and left off the butter completely, since I'd already sauteed the onion and garlic in butter. Finally, I baked for 50 minutes just to make sure everything was well done. Reduce the onion and this would be a 5-star recipe.

Ham, Potato and Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
First, this recipe is great comfort food. I did add about a cup of Cheddar Cheese to the soup/milk mixture, along with a can of sliced mushrooms. After reading the reviews, I opted to use hashbrowns instead of French Fries, and I shredded my own potatoes rather than using frozen -- mostly to make sure the potatoes would cook thoroughly. They cooked fine, but the dish is really not very appetizing to look at when made this way with hash browns. Next time, I will use potato slices that I parboil for a few minutes first to ensure they cook through. I will also add some sauted onions and garlic, along with some salt and pepper to taste. Will definitely use more Cheddar Cheese next time too. Even without my changes though, I think this is a great comfort food and my whole family liked it.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
I've been making this recipe for years -- I originally found it in an old Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, and that page is well worn in my copy now. This recipe divides into three mini baking pans very nicely, and makes great holiday treat giveaways.

Country Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
This came out like really thick creamed corn with an onion flavor. Bland, unappetizingly gooey and not flavorful at all. Will not be making again.
