Chocolate Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
A very easy AND very, very tasty chocolate truffles recipe! I used bourbon with finely chopped and toasted pecans. My favorite, so far, is orange flavored which I used triple sec liquer, coated with cocoa powder. Great idea from another reviewer to freeze these. I'm giving that a try so I have them on hand for the upcoming holiday. I look forward to trying other flavor variations. These are gift-worthy treats. *if mixture is too hard from chilling, leave out to warm to room temperature. Your hands when rolling will melt chocolate well enough too, for coatings to adhere*

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
This is really "Awesome" as the title refers. The more you use the recipe, the easier it is to add your own special touches..... carrots, potatoes, onion, wine, etc.... This is probably my most used recipe (with my own alterations) that I discovered on this site. Thanks!

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
Excellent reviewer tips on this recipe - a bit of tweeking for a perfect end result. The changes made: substitute 1tsp. vanilla for the water, add 1/2 cup of brown sugar to dry ingredients, increase the cinnamon to 1tsp. used 1/2 cup of Splenda for the white sugar ingredient (because I have to watch my sugar intake; worked great with the sugar substitute),used a 16oz. pkg. of almonds for this recipe to ensure good coating. If using more nuts, increase the coating ingredients. Cooked my batch on a cookie sheet with parchment paper (easy cleanup) at 250 degrees for 1hr.15mins. stirring every 20 mins or so. Good stuff! This goes into my Gift Giving recipe file.

Sugar Cookie Cutouts

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
Very good basic Sugar Cookie recipe following the directions as written. And you're right, Laura! Good even without the frosting. I had to make an additional batch because my family ate the first before I could frost them for the Valentine's Day celebration. :) Update: for those that may not have or afford 1 cup of butter - you can substitue 1 cup + 2 Tbsp of water for the butter. Just beat the shortening and water together before you beat with the sugar. The taste of this fine cookie is still there!

Rich Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This is a very tasty,easy alternative and very nice change from your everyday choc. chip cookie! The recipe is easy to follow with delicious results. I made each serving size quite small, with this recipe yeilding about 60 servings. Small servings due to the VERY rich and flavorful bars. I was impressed with how easy this recipe is and even more impressed with the end result! *I added all the toffee bits to the top during the last baking step as I didn't want hard crunchy candy texture on top & added additional 1/2 cup chopped pecans to top layer for final baking as well*

Frosted Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
What a delicious cookie! I used this recipe last year and have been "reminded" that I need to make these again for the holiday season this year! This cookis is tasty without the frosting and VERY tasty with the frosting. Nice subtle maple flavor! *note: only drop 1 tbs. or less of dough per cookie & leave 2" space between each for spreading. Do not add more flour, the dough is suppose to be very sticky.*

Chef John's Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: May 28, 2015
Very good dressing. Creamier than the recipe I have used for years. After chilling and tasting the recipe as-is, I added to this recipe about 1 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice which made it perfect for me. I think it needs a little more tang to wake up the flavors.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
I have been making this cheesecake recipe for more than a couple of years - and am just now submitting my 2 cents. :) This is an easy recipe with an end result that is sure to impress anyone you serve this to. It is a dense yet creamy cheesecake that is delicious without any topping. If using a topping with this cake I would suggest using something simple and as close to fresh as possible - as opposed to a canned pie filling. This recipe has never failed me following the recipe as is. Ensure you leave this in the fridge for at least 6+ hours after taking out of the oven to allow it to settle & give you the best texture. Bake it an hour before bedtime and leave it in the oven until you get up in the morning, then refrigerate. It's ready to serve for dinner dessert. Nice....

Candy Apple Jelly

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
So easy and SO tasty. I am happy to find this recipe after tasting the jelly a friend shared with me. My batch yielded 6 8oz jars - no more, no less. This jelly is enjoyed with softened/room temp cream cheese and a plain water cracker. Also, we use this as the "J" in PB&J sandwiches. A different flavor for a jelly, and a nice change once in a while.

German Chocolate Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Perfect traditional frosting for German Chocolate Cake! Easy and so-sooooo much tastier than a container of store bought. The recipe as written wasn't quite enough to frost a double layer 8 inch cake. I will make an additional 1/2 recipe to this next time - and will double the recipe if making a 3 layer cake. **After making this a few times since rating I would suggest the following slight changes: 1/2c white & 1/2c brown sugar; also increase the coconut to 2c, pecans to 1.5c; this perfects a box German Chocolate cake mix if you don't have time for scratch cake & works very well on cupcakes.**

Original Irish Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
YUMMMM! Nice to find an Irish cream recipe that does not require raw egg. I followed the modifications of another reviewer with my own shortcuts - e.g. 1/2 tsp. almond, 1-1/4 C Whiskey, used instant coffee & about 25 melted choc. chips in milk in the microwave then added to other ingredients in blender. Perfect! **using melted choc. chips is a more "real" chocolate flavor than the syrup and chips are usually on hand** Thanks Mom and modgepodge for the recipe and suggested tweaks.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Add bacon and basically whatever other combination of cheeses, onion, mushrooms, etc. This recipe is easy to adjust/enchance/change/whatever-you want-to call-it to your preference and to what you have on hand. DO cut the butter to a little more than 1/2 what is called for, for less oily results. This was SO tasty and quite the crowd pleaser serving hot and at room temperature.

Fudge Truffle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2006
The end result was a VERY rich, smooth cheesecake. One has to be a big chocolate lover to fully appreciate this cheesecake. I did bake this in a water-bath, wrapping the spring form pan in foil to avoid water or filling leaks, then let the cake cool for 1hr. in the oven when turned off without opening the door. and....Viola! Abosolutely no cracks and a beautiful presentation for dessert after chilling for 4hours! Easy recipe to impress guests with!

Creamy Spiced Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
The BEST and EASIEST slaw dressing I have found! I do substitute Splenda for the sugar which works great! Also, I'm not one to have celery seed on hand, so instead I use 1/4 tsp. celery salt and omit the 1/2 tsp of regular salt. Very tasty. I prefer homemade dressing to store bought as then I know what is in it AND what is not and.... if you have all the ingredients on hand anyway, why not take 3 minutes to make your own? Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. :) *shred your own fresh cabbage for a really fresh slaw and save some money too*

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Easy marinade resulting in a nice flavorful chicken breast. I like that the marinating time is only 4 hrs. as I seldom think so far ahead to marinate overnight or for a LONG time as many marinades suggest. "Pretty" is subjective. I wouldn't exactly call the chicken Pretty, but definitely tasty!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
5 stars for a delicious no-meat burger and for ease of preparation & cooking. Made these for a burger-burn w/some vegitarian guests attending. The non-meateaters enjoyed these & said these were much better than the store bought brands. I (a lover of a good meat burger) wound up eating one of these burgers instead of a meat burger - grilled with green chile and cheese on top :). Delicious. As suggested by other reviewers, it is necessary to drain the beans very well and not mix the pepper & onion mixture in if its too wet. You will need to drain some moisture off as needed. You can easily add more moisture if needed - just enough to "feel" the pattie texture will hold together when cooked & flipped over while cooking.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Very moist, tender, tasty pork chop is the end result. It's so nice to eat pork chops that are not dry! The coating & pan fry prior to baking, I believe, seals in the moisture so don't skimp on the initial steps. I like spice and not a lot of salt so mixed equal amounts of garlic powder, onion powder & celery salt for a rub prior to the dredging, egg, bread crumb coatings. Being cautious to avoid drying out the meat, I cooked covered for 1/2 hr.only then added the sauce as intructed for another 1/2 hr. Perhaps if using thicker cuts I may cook longer. I suggest using the white wine in your sauce - chardonnay works well for my cooking needs. It flavors the sauce which otherwise would be bland.**I buy the 4pk. of small wine bottles that are now sold in stores to avoid having to open a full bottle if not consuming the wine with dinner. You then have wine on hand for cooking anytime**

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
VERY good recipe! I despise frying chicken, so have been in search of the best oven-fried recipe for a while. I can stop searching. This recipe is easy and very flavorful! The coating comes out nice and crispy, and stays that way when reheated as leftovers.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
This is the BEST icing recipe I have found for the "shiny-smooth" look on a cookie. The icing doesn't mottle like the other recipes I've found that use egg white as an ingredient and no need for constant stirring. The icings dry beautifuly and true to color. **NOTE: I added the milk in Tbs. measure (ie: 2 Tbs. milk) instead of tsp. as indicated. Tbs. milk measures worked much better for me.**

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
This truly is the best Carrot Cake recipe I have found. It bakes beautifully. The coconut and pineapple add such depth to the flavor and make this a hearty filling dessert in either cake or cupcake form. This makes approx 30 cupcakes. Cream cheese frosting is the best compliment for this finished recipe.
