Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2014
I gave this a 3 because of the problems I had. Followed the recipe exactly (even though I always use butter in my cookies). First time I used shortening. The first dozen did not spread at all. they were unbaked in the center. Tried flattening and baking a little longer. Just got burned bottoms and still unbaked in center. I rolled them a little smaller, flattened them and then added the extra M&M's. But the flattening caused the edges to solit so had to fix them. Only baked for 7 minutes - due to smaller size and my oven is hot. Then they were fine. The tase is fine, but too much work. Not sure why the problem, but if I make them again I will definitely make with butter!

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
This is a very easy recipe to make. However, I found it to be very sweet. I also had the problem of the graham cracker crust being too loose. If I make it again, I will either mix the butter and graham cracker crumbs together, or press the graham cracker crumbs into the melted butter. I may also try the suggestions of others to cut the sweetness level. Note: My husband liked these just the way they were!

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
I have rated this a 5 due to ease and taste. I have made this twice and it is a big hit with my family. I also have saved the pan drippings/glaze and used it as a sauce for the ham. Delicious!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
These were easy to make, and turned out really good. I mostly followed the recipe as is, except I used only 1/2 onion (it was a big onion). I did not have 1 1/2 hours for baking, so set the oven on 400, and baked the first half hour uncovered. Then covered with foil for the second half hour. The potatoes were cooked and tender at this point. Added some extra cheese on top, and baked until this melted. We really enjoyed this, and will definitely make again.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
These were good, but I had trouble getting them tender. They were still not finished after 45 min at 375, and then the sauce had started drying out. I will make these again, because my husband and I still liked the taste. However, I will double up on the sauce, and maybe pre-cook the potatoes.

Homemade Biscuit Mix

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
I was disappointed in how these biscuits turned out. They were hard on the outside. The recipe certainly was easy to follow, but my biscuits obviously were not as good as other reviewers have described. I don't know if it was something I did. I will try this again (as I have more mix already made!), and hopefully will have better luck the next time.

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
This was OK, but mine must not have turned out as good as it did for others. I didn't think it had too much taste, and it was the consistency of a cake, not a cobbler. If I make it again, I will try another fruit. I did like the ease of this recipe, though.

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
I gave this 5 stars because of its ease and good taste. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I had no problem with baking time as others have stated. It was beautifully done in exactly 1 hour. Will defintely make again -- next I will try making it with pumpkin.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
As others stated, I was unsure of this recipe. I had a 7 1/2 lb bone in , fully cooked ham, and it was done in 4 1/2 hours, when cooked on low. As suggested by another reviewer, I thickened the liquid with corn starch. This was really good as a sauce over the ham. I served this to two picky eaters and they loved it! I will definitely make this again.

Best Ziti Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
This recipe does make a lot! If I make it again, I think I would cut down on the pasta, and increase the ricotta cheese.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
This did not turn out as good as I had hoped it would. I could not get it to thicken, no matter how long I let it sit. I finally had to add a flour/water mixture to get it to thicken, and then it got too thick, and I had to thin it! I also thought it was too bland, and had to add extra garlic powder, salt and pepper. I also feel 1/2 cup of butter is too much. Not sure if I will make this again. If I do, I will cut down on the butter, and add some extras to the recipe as suggested by other reviewers.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
I have made this twice. The first time I shredded the chicken and served as sandwiches. The next time I served whole with rice and vegetables. My family liked it both ways. I did not use frozen chicken -- I used defrosted, and cooked for 3 hours on high. It was fall apart after just the three hours. The recipe did not make enough sauce for us, so the second time I increased the sauce. The taste and ease of this recipe are why I am giving it 5 stars.

Garden Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
I added a red pepper (for the color) and was very flexible with the amount of vegetables -- added the amount I wanted, until I liked the consistnecy and mix. Following the recommendation of others, I only used 1 bottle of salad dressing -- 2 would have been way too much. I took this to a party, and got many compliments. Will make again.

Peppermint Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
I made this for Christmas, and it was a real hit. I substituted chopped up pieces of Andes Mint candies for the topping. Tasted great!

Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
I followed the recipe, and added 2 cans of mixed fruit and 1 can mandarin oranges. I poured all of the canned fruit into a collander, to make sure it was very well drained. This seemed to help, as the leftovers were not runny the next day. I also added some extra mini marshmallows. I did mix the condensed milk/whipped topping mixture first, as advised, and added to the fruit/marshmallow mixture until I liked the consistency. I took it to a family party, and everyone enjoyed it. I will definitely make again.
