Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
This is a great base recipe for meatloaf! I haven't made many meatloaves, but this one turned out great! I did add a few of my own seasonings, and as other reviewers suggest, I put the brown sugar and ketchup on the top of the meatloaf instead of the bottom. It was very moist and delicious! I served it for Christmas dinner and everyone just raved about it!

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
Delicious! I made this for Christmas dinner along with meatloaf - true comfort food! I added a few more spices to mine, but it is delicious with just the base recipe! I also added crushed Ritz crackers to the top to add a nice crunchy texture. Wonderful reheated the next day as well! Thanks for a great recipe!

Michelle's Soft Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
Good soft cookie recipe! I chilled the dough for a full 24 hours and they were easy to roll and cut out. I added cinnamon to the batter and next time will add maybe a bit more vanilla.

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
Amazing!!! The sauce is so wonderful - everyone kept pouring on more and more! I used filet steaks instead of the roast and they worked perfectly! I omitted the bacon becuase I forgot to buy it at the grocery and it was fine without it - I just used olive oil to sear the steaks. Next time I will double the sauce!! Thanks for a great recipe that will impress your guests every time!

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
This dressing is delicious!! I added a bit more mustard and oregano, and only used 1/4 cup of sugar. I served it with a mixed green salad with shaved red onion, glazed walnuts, fuji apples, and feta cheese. Everyone at my dinner party said it was the best dressing they have ever had! Thanks for a great, easy dressing! This one is a staple in my recipe box!

Cream Cheese Tart Shells

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
These are awesome and so versatile! I added a touch of cinnamon and kosher salt to the dough to enhance the flavors and then filled them with apples for mini apple pies. They were a hit at Christmas Eve! Then for Christmas morning I made them again (this time omitting the cinnamon) and made mini quiches! Everyone raved about the crust and how flaky and buttery they were. I will use this recipe over and over! Thanks!!

These are great for any party and freeze extremely well! I added some browned, crumbled spicy sausage which really boosted the flavor. Delicious!!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
this turned out really sweet. Next time I would reduce the amount of sugar to 1/4 cup and then add more if necessary to taste. Also, I am not a big fan of sesame seeds, so I would reduce that to 1 tblsp. This is a good base dressing though - you could experiment with different vinegars and spices.

Carrot Spread Surprise

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
this turned out horrible. Maybe my carrots were not sweet enough and didn't balance out the pecan flavor? I tried it with several different crackers, and it was not good on any of them! I didn't bring it to my dinner party and would not make it again.

Caroline and Brian's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
I used 1 pkg of spicy pork sausage and browned and crumbled that on that a stove and kept all other ingredient amounts the same. I used 4 small containers of baby bella mushrooms and made this as an appetizer. I also added some italian style shredded cheese to the filling. It was delicious and a hit at Easter! Thanks!

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
These are good! I made a few changes like omitting the spinach, increasing the amount of chicken, adding about 1/2 can of Cambpell's pepper-jack cooking soup, and used pinto beans instead of the black beans. I used large tortillas and cut them into small squares to make mini-rolls. I sprayed the tops with non-stick cooking spray and baked them. Turned out great and everyone loved them - great appetizer!

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
Most cans of garbanzo beans come in a 15 1/2 oz. size, so you will need to buy 2 cans. I didn't realize that I had only used 15 1/2 oz. until after I made it. It was definitley too salty! However, after I added some more beans to it, and a bit more tahini it turned out pretty good.

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
These are great! Definitely use a mexican beer - I prefer Corona Light - and I used two beers to cut the sweetness of the limeade concentrate. I am usually not a big margarita drinker, but these were refreshing, and delicious!! Will be making these A LOT this summer!

Bronco Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
These were great, especially topped with lettuce, pickles, and bbq sauce! These are huge burgers, so you can make more burgers than the recipe states if you make them a bit smaller.

Corn Dip II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
I used a bag of frozen white corn and used a 1/2 pkg of cream cheese and cut the sour cream to 1 cup. I also had to add more spices as it was a little bland. This is also great with salsa served on the side! Oh - and definitely serve it hot!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I think I cooked mine a bit too long as they tasted a little too toasted...but overall it was a good recipe.

Baked Creamed Corn II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I ended up modifying this recipe quite a bit, but this gave me a good starting point for my own version. This recipe as written would be way too rich I think. I used over twice the amount of corn, used less cream (and switched that to half & half) and the same amount of cream cheese and my version was still VERY rich! I also gave mine a mexican flair with green chiles and mexican spices.

Apple Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
These are great!! I will have to try the healthier recipe changes as some other reviewers have listed! I used 1 cup of white sugar and 1 cup of brown sugar, added some pecans, and added oats to the streusel topping! The muffins needed a bit more baking time, but that might have just been my oven. They turned out very moist! Yum!!!

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
I wanted to make cupcakes with this recipe. The batter was delicious but I had to throw all the cupcakes away! They sunk in the middle and were so crusty/crunchy on the edges. Maybe I will try again if I am making a regular round cake.
