Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
These are oh-so-good! I find with these that in order to achieve the golden brown bottom, I had to remove them from the over just before they were starting to brown, because you need to let them sit on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes before removing them, so they don't break apart. This achieves your golden brown bottom.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
This was a delicious potato salad! I hate mayo, so I was on the hunt for a potato salad that didn't have mayo in it and found this gem! I made it the night before for a BBQ the next day and just popped it in the oven 30 minutes before we were about to eat to reheat it through. It came out perfectly and not dried out. I also tripled the recipe to feed a dozen people.

Cheesy Taco Dip

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
This dip was amazing! I made this with Old Elpaso's Hot and Spicy Taco seasoning mix. I think it would have been a little bland had I not used the hot and spicy seasoning. I was a little unsure of this dip when it was done as the cheese was just sitting in there and not incorporated, until I stirred it all together and it came together perfectly!

Triple-Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
This dish tasted so good, after a slight modification and some aggravation. The "cheese mixture" was so, so, so, soupy that I had to transfer it to a saucepan and cook it on the stovetop to thicken it up. I will definately be making this again...but will cook the "cheese mixture" on the stovetop again, before mixing in the macaroni.

Delicious Potato Salad Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2004
I'm not a fan of mayonaise so I've never liked traditional potato salad. While planning a BBQ I decided to search for a mayonaise-free potato salad and came upon this. It worked out wonderfully for out gathering. A real hit, leaving some disappointed when there was none left! Instead of slicing the potatoes I cubed them, which required a little longer baking time, but I was glad I did cube them.

Grilled Onion Blossom

Reviewed: May 15, 2004
I tried this out and found it tasted very good, but did not hold up well at all. My onion was a big soggy mess. I made sure to wrap it tightly in foil to keep it's shape, and was extremely careful when cutting the onion to make sure I had the "flower" shape. When we unwrapped it, it looked like the onion had exploded. Although we all enjoyed the flavor, we were somewhat disappointed at ending up with soggy grilled onion pieces.

Dill Wrapped Cream Cheese

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
I love cream cheese, so I was excited to make these. I took the suggestion of previous reviewers and made these folded into individual pockets out of the individual cresent rolls, which I think was a good call. This way people had their own individual pockets and the cream cheese filling wasn't overwhelming. I added WAY more dill weed than was called for in the recipe. I just kept shaking more in and adjusting to taste, so I have no idea how much I actually ended up putting in there.

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: May 15, 2004
Better than sex? MAMA NO!!! I will definately take sex any day over this cake. I bought all the ingredients with excitement to make this for my man's birthday, and ended up so extremely disappoited and frustrated with the outcome. The caramel sauce made this so soggy and the cake tasted like, you guessed it: caramel. It sure looked like devil's food cake, but the flavor had no indication of devil's food cake. The thawed whipped topping would not stay on this cake. I ever tried sitting it in the freezer and it all slid off. So here I am almost an hour into fooling with this cake and almost in tears at this point, being so frustrated. I ended up sopping up all the "whipped topping" and making a chocolate frosting for this cake. It saddens me to relive the moment of making this cake to write this review. I definately will not even try to tweak this recipe.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2004
What a horrid mess. I have recipes for peanut butter cookies, but wanted one that was more peanut-buttery. Figuring this was the solution, I decided to give it a try. I make cookies once a week and never again will I make these. They were way too wet and burnt before they got dry enough to lift with the spatula. With the remaining dough, I baked it on the top rack of my oven to try and avoid the burning issue. Same story, burnt before dry enough to lift.

Chicken Slop

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2004
This recipe was alright. I made it for some friends who got a look at it when I was taking it out of the oven and asked somewhat frightened "Is that dinner"? I did season the chicken beforehand,used garlic flavored croutons and baked with shredded cheddar on top. The taste was not bad, but some of my croutons were way too crunchy from being baked. I served this over rice and with a side salad.

Fresh Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
Spectacular recipe! This was so quick to put together. I made it with peaches, apples, blueberries and a few raspberries. When I was sifting the flour mixture together I added in some nutmeg and cinnamon, it was so delicious! My man had never had cobbler before and absolutely loved it!

Lea's Hamburgers

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2004
Growing tired of the same old hamburgers I decided to give this one a whirl. Yummy! I used seasoned bread crumbs instead of regular bread crumbs. I really liked the incorporated bacon bits. I was scheptical at first, but it all worked out in the end. Dee-lish!

Taco Dip I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2004
A real crowd pleaser! I leave out the pepper and olive as no one is a big fan of them and the dip is still delicious. I've tried to make this in advance and store in the refrigerator to save time and it didn't work that well. It turned a bit watery. I just took a paper towel and soaked up some of the water that was sitting around the edge. I've learned my lesson and prepare this upon time of consumption now.

Yummy Eggnog Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2004
I loved the idea of this pie as something unique over the holidays, but yet made with something common over the holidays. My pie didn't set up as well as I'd hoped, so I stuck it in the freezer and froze until firm. We quite enjoyed it frozen with additional whipped cream on top.

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2004
Fool proof! These are wonderful to take to a party, guaranteed no leftovers! The fruit filling is still great even added on hours before and kept in the refrigerator until serving time.

Haddock Bubbly Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2004
I'm not a huge fish fan, but wanting to change up our meals I searched for an easy fish recipe and found this. It's amazing what you can do with canned soup! The fish was so moist and so tender. Very delicious! I've also made this with cream of cheddar cheese soup and left out the grated cheese on top.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2004
This recipe is absolutely amazing! So quick, so easy, so good! This recipe was the only one I've ever tried for making homemade alfredo sauce and I hit the jackpot with it. My father actually calls me up and asks me to make it and take it to him! I've made it with fresh garlic and garlic powder and it's come out just as good with either. Also fresh parmesan cheese in the block form is a rariety in this area, so I have always used the canned stuff and it has always come out perfect. No grainy texture, just a wonderful smooth sauce.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
This tasted super good and was very moist! My batter was only enough for two loaves (no complaints about that though, as I was wondering if three loaves would actually get eaten up). The bottom of my loaves did burn a little bit before the toothpick would come out clean. Perhaps I'll try baking this as mini loaves, like a previous reviewer.

French Onion Soup III

Reviewed: May 15, 2004
I originally started off making this recipe as is and have now adjusted it to suit our tastes. With other reviewers I too found the soup rather bland as is, so whenever I make it I am sure not to forget the bouillion and seasonings. I also leave out the flour. When I was making it with the flour it would foam up all over the top of the soup and not incorporate into it. With these adjustments the recipe for us now is to die for. Thank you for giving us a good base to work with.

No Bake Choco-Peanut-Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2004
OMG these are unbelievably good!!! They were simple and quick to make, but I didn't end up with 4-5 dozen as the recipe stated. I ended up with about 3 dozen.
