Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This cake is AWESOME! I made it for family and got rave reviews. I chose to omit the raisins and coconut. I added in 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. I topped it with the Cream Cheese Frosting II (submitted by JJ) recipe from this website. WONDERFUL! Thank you Brian for sharing this great recipe!

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I loved the creaminess of this frosting. It's a great addition to Sam's Famous Carrot Cake recipe from this webiste. I used 3 cups of powdered sugar because I didn't want it to be super thick. YUM!

Ultimate Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This is a great dish just out of the oven and just as good reheated on busy mornings! I used 1 lb. cooked sausage in place of the ham, added 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, 6 eggs and substituted cream of mushroom for the cream of chicken soup. I spread the hashbrowns in a 9 x 13 and bake them for 15 minutes while I cooked the sausage. I mixed all the other ingredients together and poured it over the top of the hashbrowns. I stirred it a little to incorporate the mix into the hashbrowns. I dotted the top with butter instead of pouring melted butter over the top. About 10-15 minutes before it was done I sprinkled shredded mild cheddar on half for the kids and shredded pepper jack on the other half for a nice kick. I will definitely make this again... it's a hearty morning breakfast!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
What a great stew for those cold evenings! YUM! The meat turned out moist, tender and flavorful. My family couldn't stay out of it! I have already been asked to make it again!! I chose to use a roast and shred it before serving. I coated the meat with a mix of flour, garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper. I browned it on all sides prior to placing in crock pot. I used 2 cans of Swanson's beef broth and then water to cover the meat. Along with the spices listed, I used a McCormick's Beef Stew seasoning packet as mentioned from another reviewer... WOW wonderful! 30 minutes before it was done I added a brown gravy mix packet. It thickened up the broth nicely. I served with toasted french bread... SUPERB!!!

Spaghetti Pie III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
I made this over the weekend and it turned out great! I even flubbed up and forgot to cover it until 15 minutes into baking. The only changes I made were to butter the noodles and add about 1 tsp. Italian seasoning to the meat as it cooked

Sausage Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
These are super good! I added 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese to the mixture before stuffing the peppers. I placed them under the broiler for a few minutes at the end to crisp up the bacon. I was even able to flip them over without loosing any filling to crisp up the bacon on the bottom. I will use a wire rack to bake them next time so they don't sit in grease. Don't forget to wear gloves... I forgot and paid for it all evening. OUCH! UPDATE: I forgot to mention these take quite a bit longer than the 20 minutes stated in the recipe to bake. This time around I didn't broil, used a wire rack in the pan and it took about 40-45 minutes for the bacon to be cooked well enough. I would stick to no broiling and the longer cooking time (broiling doesn't cut the time much-it's still at least 30 minutes baking time plus broiling time) so you don't have to mess with turning them over.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
My hubby just loved these... he couldn't stop eating them! I chose to add a few ingredients from the Sausage Jalapeno Popper recipe on this site. I added 1 lb. cooked sausage to the mixture, omitted the bacon bits, and increased the cream cheese to 2 packages. I baked these at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes then put them under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp them up. I was very grateful for the triple dipping process... it made the coating stick very well! AWESOME appetizer... hubby said he could make a meal out of them with addition of the sausage. Don't forget to wear gloves... I did and paid for it all evening!

Hash Brown and Pork Chop Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
After reading other reviews, I added an envelope of onion soup mix to the sour cream, soup and milk mixture. I added 4 ounces of cream cheese to the mixture to make it creamier. I cooked this in a large pan on the stove along with the potatoes for about 10-15 minutes before placing in baking dish. I used another reviewer's recommendation and placed half of the potato mixture in bottom of pan, laid the browned pork chops on top then covered with remaining mixture. This kept the pork chops moist and tender!

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
These are pretty good if you are looking for something not too sweet. The batter doesn't move once it's on the pan so if you want circular pies you must spread it out before baking. My second batch was super sticky and at first I wasn't sure why then I remembered I left the first batch in the oven a bit longer because I was busy scooping out more batter. So next time I will bake them for 15-17 minutes and maybe that will cure the stickiness issue! I used unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil and chose pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg for the spices. I made the whoopie pie filling but added 4 oz of cream cheese to it. This addition was wonderful!

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
What an awesome recipe! I absolutely LOVED it! It was exactly what I was looking for in a lemon bar. I made 1 1/2 times the filling as recommended by tat2whttrsh aka Lambchop's Mom after reading a discussion regarding lemon bars on the RE. I loved the filling so next time I might even double it for more gooey goodness!

Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
I used frozen chicken breasts and it came out great. I tossed my cubed potatoes and onions with some fiesta ranch dressing mix (dry). I also did not "wrap" my bacon, choosing instead to lay slices of bacon on top of the chicken. I placed the dish under the broiler for a few minutes about 20 minutes before it was done to crisp up the bacon. I added a mixture of colby and monterey jack cheese since we love cheese; mixed in half with the potatoes and then sprinkled the other half during the last 10 minutes of baking. I served it with sour cream with green onion mixed in. YUM!

Cupcake Graveyard

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
This was a really fun project for my son and I. I used Halloween Oreos for the dirt and added gummy worms and a spider to the mound. I used the fudge graham cookies for the tombstones and Wilton Buttercream Icing for the grass and lettering. After I lettered each cookie I placed them in the freezer to harden until I was ready to place them (overnight). I think this helped them stay firm when placed in the cupcakes for an extended period of time.

Tortellini Bacon Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
A friend and I followed this recipe almost exactly (we doubled the green onion because we love them) and it was SO good! We were a bit skeptical about the coleslaw dressing but it added a wonderful touch of sweetness to the ingredients. The salad was even better the 2nd day so I'd recommend making it the night before if possible to allow the flavors to meld together... YUMMY! Thanks for sharing!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
These were really good! The only changes I made to the recipe were to add more PB because we are PB nuts and then I had to add a bit more flour to the mix. I took these to work and everyone just raved about them! Thanks for sharing!

Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
I made this in the crockpot overnight and it made the house smell wonderful! The pork just melts in your mouth as my hubby says! I plan on taking other reviews advice and frying up some of the pork before serving with tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and green onions... YUMMY! Thanks Ken for a great recipe!

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
My son (age 9) recently started making these with me hanging around just to watch and answer any questions he may have about the recipe. He loves to add chocolate chips AND M&M's to the mix. We typically bake them for about 9 min before pulling them out of the oven to "finish" baking on the cookie sheets. This is his favorite cookie by far!!

Irish Cream Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
These were a hit at my office for St. Patrick's Day. Everyone loved the (strong) hint of Irish Cream in them. I will definitely make these again! Next time I'll try them with the toffee bits... didn't have any at home so I left them off this time around.

Best Cherry Pie

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
The only modifications I did to the Best Cherry Pie recipe were to add lemon juice, cut the sugar a bit and add in a can of dark sweet cherries. Everyone at work loved it!
