Persimmon Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
This is the same recipe that has been in our family for 130 years -- with just one change. If you stir the pudding every 15 minutes while baking, you won't get a crusty top, and it will be less cake-like and more like a true pudding. Very rich, so we just top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Its also delicious cold.

Cheese Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I needed a dipping sauce for pigs in a blanket and this recipe was perfect for that. I added 1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke for a hickory flavor. Now, to borrow a hint from Rachel Ray: the secret to smoothness is in the stirring. Stir the sauce in a figure 8 motion. I don't know what makes the difference (and neither did she) but it works. Mine was very creamy.

Crunchy Crab Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
This salad is excellent -- and so easy! The only things I changed were using imitation crabmeat, canned (drained) LeSeur peas instead of frozen, and I omitted the chow mein noodles to save on carbs. So I know I didn't sacrifice any flavor with my substitutions. The almonds and celery make it crunchy, and the curry powder and lemon juice add just the right zing. I like it for a light lunch with cottage cheese, and my husband loves it on crackers! I'm going to make this a lot this summer! Thanks for the great recipe!

Sausage Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I've made these for 30 years, and twice in the past two weeks for parties. They always disappear! I never cook the sausage first, nor do I add baking powder. I also use less water. be sure to use hot sausage and sharp cheddar - the flavor is much better. Make the balls no larger than a quarter and the sausage will cook fine.

Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
I did an ingredient search for a few items I had on hand and this recipe came up. I was shocked how much XXX sugar it asked for, so I used only 1/3 of a box when other reviews said it was so sweet. I also took their advice and used only half the chocolate chips. My only problem was I had no cake mix, so I used a packaged muffin mix, and it did fine. The cooking time and oven temp is not right, and I bumped it up to 325 like the others did. The consistancy is good and I had no problems with runniness. But would have liked a denser cream cheese -- this is a bit spongy. I am giving this only two stars because I had to change the recipe for it to come out right, on the advice of the other reviews. Taste is okay but nothing special-- won't make them again.

Pickle Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I wasn't thrilled with this recipe the first time and they didn't all get eaten, so I 'upgraded' the next batch: I added Beau Monde spice, dried minced onion, and garlic salt to the cream cheese. I also used pastrami instead of ham. It helped to have a more pungent meat to complement the pickle. Be sure to blot pickles with paper towel beforehand, and when spreading cream cheese, extend all the way to the edges of the tortilla wrap so after slicing the roll will stay together.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Since I am allergic to sunflower seeds, I never get to enjoy broccoli salad at gatherings. Finally I found someone who can live without them also! I'm making this for company on Christmas Eve so I will add dried cranberries! Thank you Cassandra!

Cucumber Sandwiches I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This was okay, but the only Italian dressing I could find was Good Seasons. I used only half the envelope and that was enough flavor, but it had a heavy oniony bite to it. Won't make again.

Amber's Super Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
This recipes was excellent, and I didn't rate it 5 stars simply because of prep time. It took 60 minutes for the wild rice to cook. The taste is great, and its visually appealing. The rice gives a nice texture to the stuffing. Everyone loved it!

Dried Beef Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
The other ladies are right - don't add the onion salt or MSG. Make it the night before and your favors will have time to meld. I like to roll in parmesan cheese.

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
I have been cooking for many years and consider myself experienced, however, I have never made a tuna casserole because I've always thought anything is better than a boring old tuna casserole! But the hubby loves tuna, and I wanted to do something else with it besides tuna salad. This is easy and delicious, however, the 15-20 min. in the oven was not long enough to cook the onions. I didn't have American cheese but had a shredded white that was "pizza cheese": a combo of mozerella, parmesan, and provolone. I didn't have chips so I used ground pretzels. I will definately make it again, but I jotted down on the recipe to add peas and slivered almonds next time, because those two ingredients would complete this. Thanks Karena!

Chicken and Cheese Crescents

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Pam should be used because my rolls stuck to the bottom of the dish. I didn't see the point in drowning the rolls. This dish would have been better with the chicken/soup/cheese mix served over rice, with the crescent rolls prepared and served as usual. Will not fix again.

Million Dollar Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
I made this cake for tomorrow's company, but temtation gave in and hubby and I had to sample it tonight! This cake is outstanding! And it is aptly named! I made some healthy changes, albeit minor ones. I used 1/2 C. Splenda instead of XXX sugar; 1 C. applesauce in place of 1/3 C. oil; and cheesecake flavored pudding. I added a packet of unsweetened orange Kool-Aid to the icing. I always like the fillings in my cakes to be a bit different than the outer frosting. So I took 1/3 of the frosting and added 1/2 C. shredded coconut and 1/2 C. chopped maraschino cherries. I used this for the filling between layers, and it gave the middle of the cake a bit richer color. The Kool-Aid adds a nice tangy punch. Also, I pressed the juice from the pineapple through a colander, and discarded the juice. It wasn't needed at all. I chilled the frosting while baking the cake. We cut the cake straight from the fridge, and it was delicious. Very light and refreshing cake without the sugary sweetness of a traditional frosting. The cake itself is extremely moist. Sixteen ounces of whipped topping was too much, but 10 ounces was perfect (about a tub and a half.). Thank you Glenda for this great recipe! I will be making every summer! I put a picture of it in my profile.

Swift Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
I made this for a Christmas party, and had to use frozen whole strawberries since the fresh were out of season. Although I drained the syrupy juice after they thawed, they still sat in juice. This made the caramel topping get lost, so to speak, and the taste was diluted. The topping is excellent, and gives a wonderful flavor to the berries, but I will wait until summer to serve it again so I won't have juices to contend with.

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Had this at a Christmas party tonight. As old as this recipe is, I had never tasted one. OMG - it is superb! I am a sucker for anything cream cheese! Now I want to make one!

Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Two stars only because of the ease of prep. But these rolls are severely lacking in flavor. I made them for a party and too many left meant they weren't very well-received. If make these again I'l have to help it out somehow - maybe a hotter sausage, and definately some mustard added to the cream cheese mix.

Pecan Breaded Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
I thought this was exceptional! Hubby thought it was too sweet but it may be because I forgot the salt. I baked it instead of frying. This would also be an awesome way to prepare pork chops!

Shelia's Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
This was too thick for a dip - so it was served as a spread. It is too salty - if I was to make it again I'd omit the salt altogether.

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
I was embarrassed when I served this dessert. First I was afraid the graham crackers wouldn't be good if they weren't cruched, but I followed the recipe regardless. And they just ended up soggy graham crackers. It doesn't taste like a chocolate eclair either. If you want your guests to suspect you didn't put any time, effort and thought into a dessert, then make this for them. Yuck. Never again. I gave it one star - only because it would be an easy dessert for kids to make.
