Mini Mexican Quiches

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2007
These are great for any party and freeze extremely well! I added some browned, crumbled spicy sausage which really boosted the flavor. Delicious!!

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.

Ham and Fresh Basil Pinwheels

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
Good base recipe with lots of room for modifications. I substituted turkey for the ham in some of them, added provolone cheese and spinach in some, and also drizzled balsamic vinaigrette in them to add a bit more mositure and zest.

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.

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
this was really good. I used canola oil and white wine vinegar. I also reduced the sugar to 1/4 of a cup and added salt & pepper to taste.

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!

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!!

Pecan Sandies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I used butter instead of margarine and 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar. These were good warm but a few hours after I baked them, they were so dry they just crubled. I don't think I overbaked them as I didn't even let them get brown or golden. Oh well, they were good when dunking them in milk.

Beer Cheese Dip II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
I used Blue Moon and the flavor of the beer was overpowering to me. I added more cream cheese and some seasonings to mellow it out. It was a hit at the party and got better after it set for awhile. I think it would have been even better hot. I would use a lighter beer next time.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Pumpkin Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
These were very good! Very soft and cake-like. Instead of raisins I put craisins in 1/2 the batter and also tried chocolate chips in 1/2. Both variations were good. I added additional spices to taste per other reviewers' suggestions.

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
This was a good recipe and worked well for piping. I don't like super sweet frosting so I decreased the sugar to 6 cups. I also used 1 1/2 cups butter and 1/2 cup shortening. Since I didn't add as much sugar, it didn't seem to need as much liquid. I added just a few tablespoons of whole milk and it was light and fluffy!

Beer Dip I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I thought the beer flavor was overpowering - but maybe it was the type of beer I used? I used Blue Moon. Took the advise of others and only used about 1/2 of the seasoning packet. I ended up adding some mayo to lessen the beer flavor and added a can of green chiles which added some good flavor.

Barbecued Shredded Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Good base recipe. I used a 7lb roast and still only used 2 beers. Cooked in the crockpot on low for 8-9 hours. Added a few of my own seasonings and blend of bbq sauce after I shredded it. Went over very well at my Super Bowl party!

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
These are good crackers. I used a little more than half of the dressing mix and it was very flavorful without being too salty. I omitted the lemon pepper. I added these to some other snacks such as pretzels and cashews for a party snack mix.

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
These are amazing!! I made them along with 3 other flavors of cupcakes for a birthday party and these were the first to go. Not too sweet and the tops were a little crunchy which gave great texture! I added the confectioners sugar slowly and to taste. I did not use all that the recipe called for and I think it would have been way to sweet had I used all of it. After I iced them, I sprinkled the the tops with cinnamon and garnished with white chocolate shavings.

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!!!
