Cola-Basted Ham

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
I made this tonight and my family just LOVED it! It reminded us of HoneyBaked hams, but a lot cheaper! I will definately make this ham again soon. My only tweak was to use less powdered mustard and no Dijon-style mustard because my husband doesn't like mustard (but he doesn't know about the powdered kind in the recipe). Thank you for this recipe.

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2006
I also can't believe how simple and easy this little recipe is! Perfect for when your family craves cookies and you might not have the time! We added chocolate chips to ours and scooped them onto the cookie sheets with a teaspoon and they released nicely, not sticky at all. Good recipe for children to learn with. Thanks for sharing!

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
11/07/06: UPDATE: THESE ARE WONDERFUL MADE IN THE CROCKPOT!!!! Update: Have made this recipe at least four times since I have first posted. The onion relish is superb! ** I wish more stars were visible!!! THIS IS DELICIOUS!!!!! and I'm only talking about the marinade! Next time I will make everything for the true taste experience, but when my kids are sneaking into the kitchen to steal slices of the meat before dinner, I know I have a winner! I used flat cut brisket because it was on sale, but next time I'll use flank steak as directed or flap meat or carne asada meat as others have suggested because it was pretty chewy. But no matter, because it was just heavenly! Next time I will also slice the meat into thinner slices because I had to re-cut every slice after it was cooked. I also boiled the remaining marinade in the grill pan I used and poured it over the meat in a bowl before I placed the meat on the tortillas. I served it with homemade refried beans, and this is a new family favorite. Thank you, thank you for such a delish recipe! 4/6/06: Had to add---make this on a night that you plan to clean your stovetop because it splatters!

Jewish Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
I've made a cake very, very similar to this for years and I've discovered that the apple taste is better with 4 Granny Smith apples, sliced about 1/4" thick. I've sliced them before with my Pampered Chef apple corer/slicer thingy and couldn't taste the apples, so it's better if the apples are sliced thicker, but not too thick. I usually add 1/2 tsp of fresh orange zest to the batter, too, just to take it up a notch, and next time will mix my apple slices with the cinnamon-sugar mixture instead of sprinkling it over the apples. People love this cake, and it smells SO good while it's baking!!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
It's wonderful how something so simple ends up being so delicious! My family gobbled these up quickly. I only used 1/8 tsp. of red pepper flakes, and it was gently spicy---perfect for our taste. I think without the red pepper flakes this would be just another herbed potato dish, so I'd advise keeping the red pepper flakes in the recipe. We do not like dill, so I didn't add it. I made this side dish with Beer Butt Chicken from this website, and they were perfect together! Also had some sweet steamed carrots with it and had a well-balanced meal. I will definately be making this one again.

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
What a delicious recipe! My whole family loved it--it was so tender and moist. I baked it for 1 1/2 hours in a 350 degree oven, based on other poster's advice, and also added a little liquid smoke, also per another poster's advice. Just amazing! Thank you for a wonderful recipe. There is no beer taste at all, just a slightly smoky, spicy, buttery sauce.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
THIS RECIPE IS WONDERFUL!! I read the other reviews and used 1 1/2 cups shortening and 1/2 cup salted butter and about 6 cups powdered sugar and beat my mixture until it was really, really fluffy, and I agree with other viewers who wrote previously that this recipe is truly lickable!! It almost didn't make it to the cake I wanted to frost; my family kept coming in and sneaking "swipes". Thank you for such a delicious recipe!!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Talk about a man-pleasin' meal! How can you go wrong with bacon, chicken, cheese, and teriyaki/ranch dressing? I made this tonight with Foster Farms chicken breasts, Kroger (Ralphs) teriyaki sauce and lite ranch dressing. I also fried up some bacon strips and browned my chicken in the bacon grease and it was delicious! I will definately be making this again!!

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
I give this 5 stars because the addition of the bacon makes this rice extra special! I used rice that I had cooked previously with chicken broth and had frozen, and bacon grease because that's what I had on hand (no bacon, just grease)---the whole family loved it! Thank you for the recipe.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
I like the fact that this recipe calls for melted butter because that speeds things along---no waiting for the butter on your countertop to soften, or the mess of over-microwaved melted butter when you only wanted it soft. I also like the size. I accidently left my cooled cookies out all night, uncovered, and they were still nice and chewy today! Thank you for a great recipe. To add: I made a double batch and spread it all out into a foil-lined jelly roll pan and baked it for 20 minutes (to make a "cookie cake" for my son). It came out delicious, thick, chewy, and again it was still soft and chewy even when left out overnight uncovered! I frosted it with the "Lucious Buttercream Frosting" from this site, and I think it rivaled the ones from the Nestle Toll House Cafe!)

Oreo® Cookie Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
My son and I made this "cake" for Father's Day and the family loved it! It was light and fluffy and not too sweet and I will be making it again, probably for the Fourth! I only used 1.5 packages of Neufchatal cheese and chocolate fudge pudding mix and it was wonderful. Be sure to use unsalted butter in the crust or it may be salty. Thank you for a fun dessert.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This is a fabulous recipe! It bakes up beautifully and is great for chocolate fountain dipping because it is so dense (no crumbs to fall into the melted chocolate). I added a bit more vanilla for our taste, and it keeps well in Tupperware for a couple of days at room temperature. Everyone at Christmas raved about this cake. Thank you for sharing!

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
This is my first time working with sugar like this and the taste is wonderful!!! Soooo much better than store-bought! Here are some of my tips: I used my non-stick stockpot and buttered the top third of it in case the sugar mixture boiled up and I used a wooden spoon so 1. it wouldn't scratch the interior, and 2. so that it wouldn't melt (I read somewhere that plastic utensils can melt when working with high heat such as candymaking). I also used SALTED butter -- again, I read that it makes a difference in the final product rather than using unsalted butter. Don't rush by thinking at first that medium heat isn't going to do anything -- soon enough the sugar mixture will behave and start getting bubbly and gooey. Have everything ready to go when you first start including the tsp. of vanilla and baking soda so that you can immediately pour them in when you take the pot off the heat. I baked mine for 45 mins. after reading other's tips here and it was delicious! Oh, I also made this on a damp day here in California and it still worked...I also found that two 3.5 oz. bags of microwaveable popcorn were not enough (only makes 2 quarts - or 8 cups - ), so I popped another quart - 4 cups - because I wanted to be sure to have a lot of caramelly goodness on my corn!

Sour Cream Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Good, simple kid-friendly dish with ingredients you probably already have ---- love these kinds of recipes! My family gobbled it up! I served sauteed spinach on the side and used fresh garlic, low-fat ricotta (my bunch hates cottage cheese), and non-fat plain Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream. Delish!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
This tasted pretty good, and I made it with sliced chuck roast; no need for sirloin. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars from me is because my green peppers were mushy. I think next time I will add them after the meat has cooked about 3 hours. But, I will be making this again, so thanks for posting it.

OREO® and Fudge Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Tried this today for Father's Day and it was very good! I doubled the Oreo's called for and next time I will use more Cool Whip, but my family gobbled it up (although it's pretty rich)---I will be keeping this in my recipe file for sure!

Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
this was the first time I've ever deep-fried anything and I really enjoyed it! My breads looked small and funny, but the texture and taste were good. I made the tacos as written and used 1 cup milk and 1 cup water (I doubled the recipe) for the frybreads and this is a recipe I'll make over and over again. Topped with plain Greek yogurt and the whole thing was delicious!
