Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
I love this easy cake. My brother in law (whose parents own a blueberry farm) asked for me to give my sister this recipe). I don't "do" the blue glaze anymore (I did the first time)since it looks a little freaky. A regular glaze will do. I might try this with a lemon cake, but it is good AS IS!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
What more can I add? This soup was rich and creamy. This tasted like something in a restaurant. Nice ham taste, even with the chicken broth, and the creamy broth was wonderful. I was trying to use up leftover Christmas ham. This was my first time making this and I usually follow to a "T" the first time, but I followed a couple of suggestions on reviews: I used 3 cups of chicken broth because I only had that size container, no boullion; I added a couple of shakes of seasoning (I used Monteral Chicken seasoning); I added a very small amount of cheese (velveeta - I needed to use before it went out of date - I wasn't aware that "cheese food" went out of date!) to the flour/butter mix to "cream" it a little more. I did saute the onions and carrots since that's how I like onions cooked when making soup. I WILL MAKE AGAIN when I have ham that needs to be used up.

Microwave Pralines

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
I should have followed JCAR's advice as mine was ruined. I was stirring and stirring and mine went from thin and not ready to drop to solid block of maple-y chunk in 10 seconds, no lie. I tried to salvage it by forming the chunk into a log in wax paper, hoping that as it cooled, I could slice it into praline slices. No luck. The slices crumbled as soon as I cut them. The crumbs tasted OK, but not worth the calories. I ended up tossing the stuff. I've made pralines the old fashioned way and thought they tasted better than the crumbles here. It was raining the day I made this and my MIL has often sworn that certain things don't "set" when the humidity is high. Maybe that added to this mess. I may or may not try this again, but I'll try JCAR's tip if I do.

Chocolate Spiders

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Make sure you have enough of the chocolate coating as it will be hard to make these stick together if it isn't "wet" enough. Also, you can pop the mix in the microwave if the chocolate starts drying too much as you make the spiders. I used butterscotch chips (point side down) for the eyes. My daughter said that they looked like spiders or mummy-babies, and I think if you used white chocolate coating, it would really look like a mummy head (I'd use chocolate chips for eyes with that one). Very easy and popular.

Chocolate Mice

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Pretty tasty but I'd save for edible decorations around other food as this doesn't make many mice. The store didn't have cookie crumbs, so I mashed up chocolate teddy grahams and when that wasn't enough, used graham cracker crumbs until I got enough. I also used dark chocolate baking squares since this was what I had. Very rich and chocolatey and surprisingly easy to make them look like mice. Very cute!

Green Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
The kids loved this one and the grown ups did too. Bright green (think Shrek) punch that tastes good and is easy to make. This was perfect at my Halloween party with floating ice hands. I left out ALL of the added sugar and it was still very sweet. I hardly ever drink juice, but I can't imagine this being any sweeter and being drinkable. Leave it out! Several parents asked for the recipie and I told them that I had left sugar out and they all agreed that any more sugar would ruin it. I had about 16 kids (most were in the 5-7 age range) and at least one parent per kid and this made enough for all and I have about 1 1/2 quarts left. Good punch!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
Reading the recipe, I couldn't imagine how it could possibly be as fantastic as the review say. It looks too easy. There aren't may things in it. Well, I've got to agree that this is 100% an example of the sum being more than the parts. I made this three times the first week. This is just great! Everyone at the party I tried it out on loved it and wanted more. I made enough for 4 times the number of people there and there was NOTHING left. You won't be disappointed. I did leave out the sugar and used blueberries instead of raspberries, but I did use raspberry jam for that taste. I also used apple slices that I'd frozen from last apple season so I did have to drain some sauce off to keep it from being too wet. I think the frosty apples were easier to chop and made the salsa nice and cool, great for summer! My 5 year old loved the chips all by themselves.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
WONDERFUL! I've made chocolate fudge for years. My husband asked for a peanut butter recipe last week so I tried this one. So easy! I used crunchy peanut butter (that's all I had) and some dark brown and some light brown sugar (that's all I had). It was perfect. You would never guess how easy this was once you tasted it.

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
I'm not a huge meatloaf fan, but had a sudden pregnancy craving for some. This is a great and easy recipe. It's not just the hormones talking, my husband and picky 5 year old loved it too. The only change I made was accidental. . . I thought I had lemons but didn't so substituted the same amount of lime juice to keep the tart addition. I'm sure the lemon juice keeps the same great flavor. Another added bonus is that this recipe is KID FRIENDLY. My five year old could help stir the sauce and pat the formed loaf with a spoon. She loved making this.

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
I can't understand the raves on this. I made them based on the consistant 5 star reviews. The puffs were pretty and puffy. The texture was nice. The cream is very good. The puff is BLAND. Very bland. If I can find a better puff recipe, I will try it again. Otherwise, I will keep the filling recipe and toss the puff recipe.

Strawberry Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
I just used the recipie for the cake as I have my own icing recipie. The cake was very moist but the strawberry flavor is not as prominant as I'd like. I believe I can adjust this recipie and do better.

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
Perfect texture, high shine and color that adjusts easily with food coloring. Used this to let 4 year olds paint sugar cookies with paintbrushes. They loved it! Stays moist long enough to add sprinkles but dries quickly enough to pack up when it's time to split up the cookies painted and go home. Great taste and texture, not crumbly or crackly. Adheres to cookie just right. I've used lots of glazes, this is THE ONE.

Down Home Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
Not as gooey cheesy as some I've made, in a good way! I liked the semi crunchy topping. A good mac and cheese, a little more grown up than most that are just fresh cheese versions of the mac and cheese sauce in a box. Drier cheese texture, but not dry.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
Very nice Some notes on my first attempt at cooking. I didn't bother trying to measure out the seasoned salt. . . as I trimmed and pounded the chicken I just salted each piece. I also used onion powder in the mustard sauce since I didn't have onion flakes and I thought the sauce was great. I also left out the parsley. I served this at a dinner for another couple with kids. Everyone, including some very picky kids (5 and under) gobbled up this chicken. The honey mustard sauce tasted just like the sauce at a local restaurant that is famous for its honey mustard sauce. Subtle, sweet but not too much, mustardy but not overpowering. It kept the chicken moist. I had the extra sauce on the table but everyone like the amount cooked on the chicken just fine. I also use the precooked bacon zapped in the microwave to make this easier. I will cook again and just loved it.

Pineapple Puffs

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
An all around good muffin but an EXCELLENT base muffin. I've used this nice, sweet muffin as my base recipe for throwing in anything sweet I'd like to add to a muffin . . . chips, bananas, blueberries, whatever. I think I'm trying peanut butter next. I think you'll like this one. PS VERY kid-friendly too. My 3 year old loves to help cook and this one is just right for her to help.

Cherry Limeade I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2004
Very tart and refreshing. Was too sweet / tart for multiple glasses on hot summer day. Next time, I'll add the suggested 2nd bottle of lemon lime soda to make it more drinkable when you want more than one glass. Everyone at the picnic loved this.
