Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
What to expect: if you follow this recipe to the letter, you will get an awesome, very delicious chocolate frosting recipe, resembling that old timey frosting you had on birthday cake of yesteryear. It will impress, and let's be honest that is what you secretly hope when baking for others. However, it is not a stiff recipe for complicated decorating, so you will need to adjust this with shortening instead of butter for that, but it will let you pipe some swirls, if that's all you need. I did add a little extra cocoa and a tad more sugar to slightly firm it, but a double recipe generously frosted a two layer 9 in. cake and had enough left for another layer. It will set up if you frost the cake and fridge it. I used this to frost "David's Yellow Cake" recipe on this site. I would give 5 stars, but just deducted a little since it is not a firmer frosting and since you need to double the recipe to make enough for regular use. Yowsers, this is a very tasty recipe and will be a staple in my baking.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
Holy GUACAMOLE! This is awesome. I had no lime but used lemon instead and it was great! I am too old to hurl my upper body and head towards the ground like a toddler, but if I could this stuff would have made me do cartwheels...seriously, it is that good.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Very easy recipe, most ingredients already in your pantry. I didn't have parsley or nuts, so I just used more breadcrumbs (some of which were panko breadcrumbs so it would stay crunchy) and some lemon/herb seasoning mixed into the breadcrumbs. I added 2 tsp of lemon juice into the butter mixture. I coated both sides of the fish (after de-skinning), and put down parchment paper on the pan so the bottom wouldn't stick or burn. This was AWESOME and CHEAP, and my husband ate 2 pieces (and he usually hates fish). It was so good I am serving it at the next dinner party! Literally no cleanup due to the parchment paper, and no fishy smell in the kitchen.

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
Best Frosting Ever! Experiment with different flavors of Jell-O to make different flavored frosting. Lemon seems to be a hit for people I make it for. This frosting is so light that it makes a great dip for fruit. Just add more cool-whip, and use fat free cool-whip for a healthier version.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
AWESOME! Seriously, I don't even like green beans and this is phenomenal. Even passed the mother-in-law test with flying colors. Easy to make ahead, just put in the fridge all made up, and just add 8-10 minutes bake time. The only thing I changed was cooking the onions a little longer in the pan before adding the sour cream to ensure texture. Thanks a ton!

Better than Sex Cake IV

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
Made into cupcakes so easier to pass out at work and WOW! I altered the recipe though and it was even better than the original. Try coconut creme pudding (Jell-O makes it), and pineapple supreme cake mix (I think by Duncan Hines) instead of the vanilla pudding and yellow cake mix. Also, for cupcakes you can use just 1 box of pudding and half the milk. Whipped cream stays firmer if you freeze the bowl you mix it in first. Try not to eat them all by yourself!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2004
THE BEST EVER! To shorten time, you can nuke potatoes in the microwave. I didn't have fresh garlic (plus it makes my fingers sticky and smelly) so i just used minced garlic in the glass jar instead (you can buy these usually in the grocery store by the produce). Even better reheated!

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2004
The best chicken marsala ever, and it's not that bad for you. You can substitute PAM Olive Oil spray to get rid of nearly all fat, but it tastes better with the real oil. You need a big pan though, especially if you are going to get it all in there together.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2004
This recipe is easiest and fits best in the pan if you cut up the chicken into bites or strips, but you have to double the coating since there is more surface area on the chicken pieces. This is the ONLY WAY I do fried chicken anymore. The best honey mustard recipe to go with this is 1 and a half cup mayo, 1/2 cup honey, and a 1/4 cup yellow mustard blended with a mixer. It makes a ton of honey mustard, but it stores well in the fridge for other uses.

To Die For Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
I don't normally like fettuccini, but this one was good. It might be better with extra ingredients like peppers or veggies. It's good cold like a noodle salad...add broccoli and serve cold!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
Healthy treat that worked PERFECTLY for a party. Gave the girls and I something to snack on that didn't kill the waistline. Add lemon juice to prevent the apples from turning brown as quickly.

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
This is the best recipe ever! And, it is pretty simple, just sounds complicated. I made this for my boyfriend (didn't expect it to work but it did) and he loved it. I cut my cheese slices a little thinner so they would fit flatter, and I pinned the chicken shut with toothpicks. It also helps if you make the butter sauce ahead of time. If you make too much, the butter garlic is good to brush on rolls to go with the chicken or save for something else. Happy cooking!
