Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
Very good and easy to prepare. The zippy sauce works nicely with the meatloaves. I doubled the recipe and followed it almost exactly except that I used half oatmeal and half breadcrumbs. My family enjoyed it and I'm sure to make it again! Thanks for a keeper!

Bubble 'n' Squeak

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
This is surprisingly good. When you make it, it looks sort of bland and boring, but it has a nice flavor and is very easy. I tried using my George Foreman grill for the bacon, but ended up using some of the bacon grease anyway. A real good comforrt food meal. I understand the squeak, but can anyone explain the bubble?

Cranberry Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
These bars are just wonderful. The sweet and tart of the cranberries combined with the flavor of brown sugar and oatmeal makes these a favorite from now on. As mentioned, they aren't kid friendly, but that's okay because it leaves more for the adults!!!

Hoagie Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
A real crowd pleaser. I have to give out several copies of the recipe after a New Years Day open house. I did cut down on the amount of cheese to 1/2 pound, but it didn't seem to impact the delicious flavor. A real keeper!

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
These are very, very good. Like some others, I used a 9 x 13 inch pan and extended the baking time. I just kept checking them every 10 minutes or so until the toothpick came out clean. I also added one chopped banana to the finished batter for a little more texture. The frosting is to die for and it makes a lot! (I used the frosting that Tricia Jaeger suggesteds in her review). A great recipe! Everyone loved these cake like bars!

Garlic-Chive Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
These are the best garlic mashed potatoes I've ever made! Just the right amount of garlic and very easy. I did use regular sour cream as it was for special family members, but I would guess that the reduced or fat free sour cream would be just about the same. These are a real keeper!

Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
A real winner! I made this for Christmas Eve dinner and it was a big hit. As someone else suggested, I melted some chocolate frosting for a glaze and topped that with mini chocolate chips. It looked beautiful on a white plate. Try this cake, you won't be disappointed!!!!!

Curly Noodle Dinner

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
A good, quick dinner. I doubled the recipe and it turned very good. A nice blend of flavors. I did add an extra package of ramen noodles as I used a little more than 2 pounds of ground beef. Since the tomatoes contained liquid, I opted not to use the water as I thought it might water down the beef flavoring. It seemed to be just right. A keeper for a quick meal. The leftovers were good too!

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
I wish I could give these more stars! They are SUPER easy and smell wonderful while they're baking. They taste as good as they smell if not better! The second time I baked them I changed the recipe a little. Instead of adding ground cloves, I increased the nutmeg to 1 teaspoon. I also added 3 tablespoons of ground flax seed, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla, 1 cup chopped dates and 3/4 cup fresh applesauce. Then, before baking I sprinkled the tops with a little brown sugar as other reviewers have done. I did not add any oil or eggs even though the batter did seem very dense and stiff. The muffins were as moist as they could be both times I made them. My daughter said they were the best muffins she's ever had in her life! Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe that is easy, delicious and very flexible. Make these - you won't be disappointed.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
These were very, very good. They do taste almost identical to the Boston Market apples. Be sure to follow the direction that says to cook them until they're ALMOST tender as the additional cooking time will make them mushy if you don't. Even if they do get too mushy, they still taste wonderful! Thanks for a real keeper!

Quick Brussels and Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This was delicious! My family didn't think they liked brussel sprouts, but these were a hit at Christmas Eve dinner. I did make one addition to the recipe. I added a bit of brown sugar to them. I knew the kids would like them better that way and they were very good. I didn't use a lot, just a bit for a subtle sweetness. Thanks for a great recipe that I will make again and again!

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
DELICIOUS! A nice twist on corned beef. I made a traditional corned beef and this recipe and this recipe won out for being the most popular. As other reviewers have stated, I did roast it for an additional hour and it could have even been in the oven a little longer. Just check it towards the end of the roasting time. Very tasty! You won't be disappointed making this one!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
This was extremely easy and very good. I loved the idea of using frozen chicken. No need to thaw it first just throw it all in the crock pot! Be sure to freeze your chicken breasts separately! I mixed up the sauce the night before and in the morning just put it all together. I doubled the sauce ingredients and used 10 chicken breasts. It cooked on low for about 11 hours. It did seem a little dry when it was still whole, but by the time I shredded the breasts and put them back into the sauce, it melted in your mouth. I served it open faced on bulkie rolls with a slice of provolone and a slice of cheddar cheese on the roll first. This would be a great recipe for a summer BBQ! Be sure to use a good sauce as stated before. I used Jack Daniels and it was just delicious. Thanks for a real keeper!

Wedding Cake Frosting

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
This is a delicious tasting frosting and VERY easy to work with. I was a little wary of beating it so long, but it did work so there was no greasy taste at all. I must say that I wasn't exact with the measurement for the sugar. I just kept adding it until it was the consistency and flavor that I liked. It's not too sweet and very spreadable. I found that I did not need to add any milk. My only complaint was that the frosting never set at all which was fine since a three year old at the party "bumped" into it and I was able to fix it with no visible sign of a repair. It simply spread right out even on the next day. For decorating purposes though, I might have used a different recipe so it would be stiffer. I will use this again for sure.

You've Gotta Be Kidding Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I love onions and I've wanted to try this recipe for a while and I'm glad I did. I used sweet vidalia onions and it was a hit at the birthday party I brought it to. I served it with Ritz crackers, but any cracker would work just fine. It does sort of remind me of cole slaw, but maybe that's because I chopped the onions so they'd be easier to get on to the crackers. Very good, surprising taste and I will be serving this again soon!

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This chicken was REALLY delicious! I normally don't rate a recipe if I've changed it at all, but I did add cajun spice to the dry spice mixture and used a little less cayenne pepper. I also added some onion powder. I made mine in my Flavor Wave oven and it cooked for 1 hour and 55 minutes. It was extremely moist and full of flavor! This is so easy. it's a keeper!!!!

Baked Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I adjusted this recipe using 10 apples and it was delicious. I was a little skeptical when I was sprinkling the sugar on that it may be too sweet. It was fine! I consider it more of a dessert than a side dish for a meal. My husband said it tasted like an apple pie and that's the best way to describe it. I don't have a potato masher so I just used my electric mixer to mix it up to the right consistency. Try this one, you won't be sorry!!!!!!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
This cake is delicious. I made the cake exactly as written and then I melted some chocolate frosting and drizzled it over the top of the cake and sprinkled it with mini chocolate chips. It was beautifully sinful!

Icing for Sour Cream Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
The flavor is wonderful, and next time I will use milk and try the food processor method as it did harden very quickly. I covered it with a paper towel and worked quickly and it came out fine. I've been looking for a long time for a frosting to harden the way this does. This was a practice batch as I cheated and used Pillsbury sugar cookie dough and added rainbow sprinkles and chopped vanilla chips. This frosting was perfect spread on top with a few added sprinkles. Very pretty too! Thanks for a recipe I'll be using often!
