Tangy Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
This was ok...it was definitely easy and quick, but the vinegar overpowered the dish. Would make again, but maybe with less vinegar.

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
This was so much fun to make. The kids loved all the different colors. I separated the batter into 5 different bowls - each cupcake got a teaspoon of colored batter - 4 teaspoon total of each color, perfect amount of batter. Would definitely make this again.

Super Bowl Bites

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
This recipe is so good. Though I couldn't bring myself to put raw meat on the buns. Sarah Lee now makes mini buns and these worked great for me. At the suggestions of other reviewers, I pre-cooked the meat - flattened in a 13x9 pan - and baked for 8 mins. Then cut and put on the buns. SO GOOD! This is definitely a keeper.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
This recipe is a great starter, but you do have to tweek it to make it "perfect". I didn't brown the meat - no need to since you're going to shred it anyways. Added 1 1/2 tsp of cumin as suggested by others. After 6 hours on high, shredded the meat and added back into the slow cooker. Added addn'l 1 1/2 tsp of cumin, 3 cubes of beel boulion and cooked for another hour or so. This was really good...and we have enough meat for anohter meal tonight! It's a beautiful thing.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
very good recipe. Didn't have shortening on-hand and used butter and still turned out great. Used coloring and made Valentine's cookies. My boys loved it!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
I'm never buying cinnamon rolls again. This is simple and good! I don't have a bread maker so I proofed the yeast by adding a package of active yeast to the warm milk & 1 tsp. of sugar - let sit for 10mins until frothy. Added the wet ingredients and with the hook attachment on the Kitchen aid, added the all purpose flour until a ball formed. Let rise and followed the recipe instructions from there. I used dental floss to cut the rolls. Baked @ 350 for 30 mins. DELICIOUS! Definitely worth the effort, though it wasn't much effort at all. My family loved it.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
ok, with over 3000 reviews who needs another? Well, here's my 2cents. This recipe is good! I didn't have a bundt pan, so I made cupcakes and baked for 22 mins. They turned out FANTASTIC. It didn't taste like a "box" cake. Simply delicious. Didn't change a thing - though I think I will add Kahlua for an adult cupcake version. Make this...you won't be disappointed. 3/3/12 UPDATE: adult version :) - used 1/2 cup + more of Kahlua instead of the warm water. FANTASTIC!!!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This was delicious! I used pork shoulder and cooked on low for 8 hours with the root beer. Shredded and used Bullseye Original BBQ sauce and cooked on low for another hour. Served on rolls and it was a hit!

Company Cauliflower

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
We have this as our side dish all the time now. It's so good and easy to "whip" up. It is a little bland...I added salt to the cauliflower when steaming. Other than that, the recipe is delicious!

Easy Ice Cream Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
This recipe was so simple, all ingredients readily available, and fun. A fun way to have the kids help. Used the advice of other reviewers and rolled the dough onto a cookie sheet and cut into circles using the rim of a small glass. Perfect little sandwiches. Would definitely make again and would try using different cake mixes/ice cream.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Excellent cookie. So soft and good. Definitely cream the butter/shortening and sugar WELL before adding the other ingredients. Frosted with the Sugar Cookie Frosting recipe from this site and the cookies were gone by the end of the day. Seriously.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
This is such a nice recipe...though I did use 2 cups of brown sugar instead of the white and used 3 cups of grated zucchini. And I had to use 6 TBSP of cocoa powder & 2 TBSP butter to replace the chocolate squares since I didn't have it on-hand. The recipe made 24 muffins - for easy lunch packing for my boys. The kids loved them! What a great way to use up zucchini. Thanks for the recipe Diane.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Ok, why did I make these?!! I can't stop eating them. It's 930pm and I had every intention to make these for my boys for breakfast. Oh well, they can have cereal. Actually these are so easy to whip up, I'll make another batch for them ;) I followed the recipe except I used butter and got 24 in my mini muffin pan. Also I think I'll decrease the baking time to maybe 12 min. - 15 got a little too brown in my oven. These are awesome. I will try different topping next. So good! Thanks for sharing the recipe

Indian Tomato Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
This is absolutely delicious! Beautiful flavors...I didn't change a thing - though I did not use a slow cooker. Just prepared in a large sauce pan. And cooked covered for on low for an hour. The chicken was so tender. Do not skip the food processor step - I served with Basmati rice and the family loved it. I would definitely make this again.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
This was delicious and so simple to make during the busy Christmas morning. Combined all the ingredients, though I added mushrooms, and popped in the oven. An hour later, a delicious and easy breakfast that was enjoyed by everyone. Next time, I may add some spinach for color. A definite keeper recipe. Thank you for sharing.

Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
this is a good basic recipe to make wontons. We added shredded carrots and mushrooms and it turned out great. Definitely make these if you're looking to make wonton soup w/out going to the Chinese restaurant.
