Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Very tasty, but a little time consuming. I do a bar recipe that tastes as good but can whip up in 10 min. For Valentines treats for my AWANA class I made these in rubber ice cube trays shaped like hearts. Some of them cracked coming out, obviously not the problem of the recipe, but my own variation on it.

Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
Recipe as written a 4, I thought they needed some peppermint extract so I added it. Also just for some visual intrest I painted my ziplock piping bag with red food gel stripes so that the meringues had a candy cane appearance. turned out very cute! Check out the picture. And not hard at all! I'll make these every Christmas season.

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This had fantastic flavor and really hit spot. Reminded me of my husband and I's favorite college Pita haunt. As to the people confused by the recipe's chicken marinade make sure you are using a balsamic vinegrette as specified instead of straight balsamic vinegar, 2 TOTALLY different things. Vinegrette is a salad dressing made with equal parts or slightly more Olive Oil to balsamic in addition to garlic, herbs, etc.. The recipe is just fine as written! Thank you for the walk down memory lane!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2008
Really did not care for these, the idea sounded good and other peoples pictures looked good, but mine, just an "eh". I used a strawberry cake mix, cream cheese frosting, and dipped in chocolate. They were messy to dip, didn't come out nearly as pretty as I'd hoped, by the end half my "chocolate" was cake crumbs. Don't think I'll give these another shot.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
Definately one of my new favorite deserts! I stuck to the recipe completely, though next time will use slightly more cornstarch as mine was still a little soupy. Here's what I did for the baking of it though. Put the peaches, and everything that goes with the peaches into a large cast iron skillet, cook on the stove boiling and letting it thicken for 8-10 min. Then scoop the cobbler topping on top and sprinkle with cin/sugar, same cooking as before. p.s. do not forget to foil line a baking sheet to put under your dish!

Absolute Best Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
I was incredibly leary about trying this recipe while reading the ingredients but decided to give it a whirl when I ended up out of syrup on pancake morning. I NEVER have buttermilk on hand so had to sub that with 2%milk mixed with 1 tb of lemon juice. My kids and I really loved the flavor, the consistency kind of threw us, it is not thick at all, very runny but also not sticky as store bought syrups are. Overall very good recipe! We enjoyed it and will use again, maybe instead of store-bought!

Thin Mint Crackers

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
This is such a good cookie! Very intersting how a cracker can turn into something so delicious. Also used 2 bags of Andes mints. Kept the chocolate melted in my chocolate dipping pot. Used tongs to flip the crackers. My 5 year old daughter made almost the whole batch after showing her how to do it so really not complicated.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
This is after a 8 hour sit in the fridge, but the cake so far is very good and I'm sure only going to get better by tomorrow. I altered a couple things just based on what was in my pantry. Cinnamon grahms, and oreo pudding, also didn't have jar frosting so followed the reccomendation of others and used the chocolate sauce recipe by BaysChick. I will probably try with vanilla pudding the next time, but the oreo cookie pudding is very acceptable!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: May 8, 2007
Very, very good! My husband who thought he didn't like snickerdoodles ate about 10 when he took these to work, the rest were ate up in about 30 minutes. I did alter the recipe slightly being that I don't carry shortening any longer. Did 1 c. butter and added 1 egg. Also followed the advice to take out at 8 minutes even though they appear underdone, this made a very moist cookie. Delicious!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
These were awesome! I loved the scent that filled my house and the flavor was superb. The only change I made was using chocolate covered raisins because apparently my K-Mart doesn't carry regular raisins! Anyway, they turned out excellent.

Quick and Easy Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2006
This soup is fantastic! I made it with ff half and half, also added sauted celery, onions, and potatoes. My husband thought it was the best chowder he'd ever eaten except maybe in New England.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I loved these cookies, very tender and stayed soft. The dough was slightly hard to work with but I found it easier to form into dough balls after being refrigerated for an hour. I used seedless blackberry jam and vanilla extract and had several requests for the recipe.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
I've made this several times as written and just tonight got the inspiration to cook it in my panini grill. Absolutely fabulous! I was afraid the coating would all come off in the grill but it didn't. Completely cut the calories by not frying in the oil and still had the wonderful flavor and very juicy.

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
This dish was my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal! Super delicious. I used a 2 qt round casserole and had left over topping so the sweet potatoes that didn't get ate on thanksgiving got baked with the additional topping the second day. Worked out perfect!

Easy Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2005
Delicious! I'm not a very strong coffee drinker so after tasting I added a smidge of choc syrup and that did the trick. I used one of my left over baby food jars for mixing the coffee mixture and that was the perfect size! Thanks for the great recipe

Vanilla Ice Cream IV

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2005
Awesome ice cream! Halved the recipe and used the new Cookies and Cream pudding mix, also used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of whipping cream. Will be making again!
