Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
These are really good...especially after I added 1/2 cup toffee chips to the mix. Yummy!

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
I am eating these as I type! They're really good. I followed directions exactly as written (except I didn't put these in a jar) and they are scrumptious. The only problem I had was that the top middle part of the cookies didn't seem to cook well. I didn't want to keep them in any longer than 8 minutes because they were perfectly brown by that point. I let them sit on the cooling rack for a few minutes before eating and they seemed to be cooked through all the way. Thank you!

Darn Good Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
This is a very good base recipe! I added some chopped sweet yellow and red peppers and one more can of beans. I also cooked this all in a crockpot...cooking the peppers and hamburger together in a pan before adding to the mix. Thank you very much!

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
My hubby is diabetic, so I did a little playing around with the recipe. I replaced the white sugar with 1/2 cup Splenda granular (NOT the one for baking) and 1/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar. I also added one more banana since I had several that were getting too old to keep. I also added 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract, as suggested by another reviewer. I also took that reviewer's advice and replaced 1/2 cup of flour with whole wheat flour since I had some I needed to use. Right before pouring the batter into the baking dishes, I mixed in 1 cup chopped pecans. After splitting the batter into a bread dish and a cake dish, I baked them as per the instructions. The only thing I will do differently next time is put the whole bowl of batter into one bread baking dish...the Splenda did not allow it to rise as much as it should have risen while in the oven so I cut it up into cake-like pieces when it was done. Placed into just one dish would've made it "sandwich-slice worthy".

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
This was great! I ended up changing it a bit, but the only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars was because I like my coffee cake thicker and it turned out pretty thin and I followed all the directions to a "t". It may have been my changes. I replaced the white sugar in the topping for 1/3 cup of Splenda brown sugar and added 2/3 cup chopped pecans. I also replaced the white sugar in the batter with 3/4 cup Splenda. I added about 3/4 cup of dried cranberries to the batter, too. My hubby loved it and he didn't feel bad about eating such a treat on a Sunday! Thank you for sharing. 2nd Review: This is still great, but I did make the struesel changes listed under DishDish's review and the topping came out wonderfully. Also, I switched out the cinnamon for pumpkin pie spice (which I also added to the dough). This is still soooo good!

Cranberry Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Delicious! I cooked my frozen cranberries on the stove using Splenda instead of sugar and I added about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water to the pot. They were ready in about 10 minutes. Then I added strawberry jam and walnuts to the pot and refrigerated. Turned out great! Thank you...I needed a recipe to use up my old, frozen cranberries and this one is quick and easy.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
These are delicious! I didn't refrigerate the dough for an hour, I just placed the cookie sheets in the freezer for a few minutes before placing the cookie dough onto the sheets. I also placed the bowl of cookie dough in the fridge as the previous batch cooked. I took some others' advice and added 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1/4 cup flour. I rolled each cookie dough scoop in sugar and pressed down with a fork on top. I also had to set my stove to 325 because it runs hot...and I baked them for 7 minutes. Thank you!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
These didn't stick together well and came out almost too crumbly to eat! I think I'll stick with another peanut butter cookie recipe I found on here.

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
These are really good! I didn't change a thing and got a beautiful, chocolaty cookie - crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. They taste like a hand-held brownie! The secret to making great cookies is to make sure that your cookie sheet is cold (I stick it in the freezer for a few minutes before putting the cookie dough on it). When the cookie sheet is cold, the cookies don't spread as easily, so you get a thicker cookie as a result. Thank you so much! Yummers.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I think this recipe is great! I had to cook 20 pounds of taco meat for a birthday party and didn't want to spend the $ on season packets since I knew I had all the spices at home. Found this recipe and it worked well. I quadrupled the recipe per 5lbs. of meat and took out a bit of salt. When the meat was brown, I added 1 cup of water (for 5lbs. of meat) and the seasoning and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Food was being made for the next day, so it sat in the fridge overnight and blended all the seasoning just right. It tastes great and the heat factor is dead on. Thanks!

Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
This was very good! My hubby is diabetic so I used sweet cherries and cut the sugar in half and then used half Splenda, half regular sugar. It turned out a bit spongy (I've noticed that Splenda can do that to some cakes and bars), but the taste was great. Oh, I also added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. vanilla extract to the crust. Next time I will use double the cherries and may even put it in an 8x8 pan to make it come out a bit thicker. That way each bite would have cherries. Thank you!

Banana Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
Delicious! Make sure that the bananas are over-ripe or you may not be able to taste them much (if at all) in your muffins. I brought these to work one day and they were a hit! My hubby loves them, too.

Spaghetti Casserole III

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
This is a delicious recipe for serving a lot of people spaghetti. I followed the recipe pretty well, but I used 1 jar of spaghetti sauce instead of ketchup (yuck) and mixed shredded sharp cheddar cheese, mozzarella, and fresh grated Parmesan. It's so yummy this way and a favorite of everyone's!

Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
This is the best! I have used this as a filling for make-ahead burritos. Just put a large spoonful of this filling into a taco-sized tortilla, wrap into a burrito, cover with aluminum foil, and freeze in a ziploc baggy. I make these ahead of time and heat them in the microwave when I'm in a hurry for lunches.

Chocolate Oil Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
It's the best chocolate cake I've made, but it was a bit too oily for me. My husband liked it, though. I don't think it's chocolaty enough for me. I used Duncan Hines Whipped frosting in a can to cover and that helped a lot. Thank you! I will keep this recipe and tweak it the next time I bake.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
These were gone before I turned around to get a second bar! The only thing I changed was that I only had regular oats on hand. It still came out great, though.

Fruit Pizza I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
Luckily I tasted the cream cheese mixture before adding all the sugar because I only used 1/4 cup, along with neufatchel cheese instead of cream cheese to cut down on fat. Spread was plenty for two pizzas! I used kiwis, raspberries, and strawberries and it was delicious!
