Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
I used low fat cream cheese and splenda. I thought there was lot of filling and there was way too much butter/margarine. Also, my cooking time took over 15 minutes more than stated. Not sure if they were wonderful, but they were good. Thanks for the recipe.

Apple Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This was very easy to make, but the taste didn't "wow" me as I thought it might. The only change I made was to grate most of the apples instead of chopping (great idea I got from others.) Maybe some icing on it would have made it better for me? Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely the BEST Rich and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing Ever!

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
Great, easy recipe. I used low-fat sour cream and lite mayo, along with red-wine vinegar and Equal in place of the sugar, and it was still wonderful with all my modifications. Thanks so much for the great recipe.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I made cupcakes (24) from the recipe - other than that, followed it exactly. Maybe because I expected so much from all the reviews, but I didn't think it was outstanding. Good, just not out of this world. Thanks for sharing.

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
This batter was extremely thick - to the point where I kept looking at the recipe to be sure I hadn't missed anything while preparing it. It took 20-25 minutes more to bake than was printed, and I finally, during those last 25 minutes, turned the oven up to 350 to move it along. Mine also stuck to the pan, even though I sprayed the heck out of it with Pam and didn't put the sugar on the pan. I used frozen peaches and the taste was good, and I also added a bit of almond flavoring to the batter.

Ambrosia Salad II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I used the juice from the pineapple and oranges to coat the bananas before I put them in with the rest of the mixture, so the bananas wouldn't turn brown. Left out the nuts (don't like them) and cherries and used low-fat cool whip. Everyone loved it and it stayed good for several days in the fridge. Thanks for the recipe!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I used a lot less salt than stated, marinated it for about 3-4 hours, baked it at 300 for about an hour and a half, then up to 325/350 for the rest of the time. The meat literally fell off the bone and the skin was crispy and very good. Great way to make chicken and will do on individual chicken parts next time. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
I made this outside the bird and had to use a lot of extra broth to keep it moist. Also added two beaten eggs to bind it all together. It was a bit sweet for me (maybe from the craisins I used?) and didn't get all that great reviews from my family. I also didn't like the "crunch" of the bits of apple. Will stick with the regular bread stuffing from now on. Also took a lot more time than it stated in the directions.

Mom's Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
Very good. I left out the salt, used more margarine for the crust (I like it to stick together more) and used low fat sour cream and low fat cream cheese. I baked it exactly for the time shown, left it in the oven turned off for an hour and then on the counter for another hour and then to the refrigerator. Mine did not crack and I did not use a water bath. I did wrap the bottom in foil though - just to be sure nothing leaked through. It was a teeny bit soft in the very middle, but it didn't affect the flavor. Served with a mixture of strawberries, raspberries and blackberries mixed with sugar. Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
When I first made this review, I had only tasted it after it sat for 24 hours and thought it okay. THEN I tried it again after more than 36 hours and it made quite a difference! Next time, I will make changes as others have suggested, such as caramel sauce in between the layers, maybe some fruit - something to add some pizazz to it. My family seemed to like it, but there was a lot left (hmmm, maybe cause there were lots of desserts to choose from?) I will definitely make it again - thanks for the recipe.

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
Super easy to make and got good reviews from my family. I did use a graham cracker/butter crust (mixed the two together) to make it more like a regular cheesecake. I topped some with cherry pie filling, blueberry pie filling, and some with fresh fruit (kiwi, strawberries and blackberries.) Mine baked for a few more minutes than was called for, but I did fill the cupcakes (regular size, not mini) almost the whole way to the top. I took them out of the oven when they just began to crack slightly.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2007
The only change I made was to use 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil instead of the shortening. Also used non-stick spray on the pan. I also left out the salt. They were, just as it says, very fluffy and very good and easy to make. I have actually never made pancakes from scratch(!) but will now never buy pre-made boxed pancake mix. Thanks for the recipe.

Dessert Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
Excellent! I used a 9x13 cake pan for the crust (I was taking it out of the house and wanted an easy way to transport it) which used the entire tube of cookie dough. I also added about 5 oz. of low fat cream cheese to the low fat cool whip mixture. Then used cut up strawberries, blackberries, bananas (with pineapple juice mixed with them to keep them from browning) and pineapple pieces. Next time I will cut the pieces of the pizza before adding the fruit, because when I cut the pizza after adding the pieces fruit, it got all messed up and didn't look as pretty. This was really wonderful - thanks for the recipe.

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
Very good and very quick and tastes like a moon pie. I used non-fat milk, one package vanilla and one package banana pudding mixes and low fat cool whip. I microwaved my fudge frosting for 30 seconds or so and then put it in a pastry decorating bag with a small round opening and drew lines back and forth on top - it looks very pretty that way. Thanks for the recipe.

Make Ahead French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
Soooo good! I left out the pecans and used sourdough bread (wanted bigger slices of bread.) I poured the mixture over the bread slices but had to layer them in the pan to fit everything in. The exposed slices got nice and brown and those underneath were soft, but that was a good thing, as you got a bit of soft and crunchy in the same piece of bread. There seemed to be a lot of liquid, but it all got absorbed into the bread overnight. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Spinach Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
Very good. My daughter made it as an appetizer for Christmas. Left out the water chestnuts and used chopped pine nuts to coat it. She made it in an oval shape. It was a nice alternative to the "normal" spinach dip. Thanks for the recipe!

Seven Layer Magic Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
These are so good and so very easy! I guess mine were six layer bars, as I didn't put the nuts on (but I did add more chips.) I sprayed my glass pan with a bit of Pam spray before putting in the cracker crumbs, and after cooling, I had no problems removing from the pan. I also had to use about 2 cups of graham cracker crums, as it didn't spread over the entire pan. (I just added more dry crumbs to the mixture already pressed down and sprayed a bit of the Pam on it to moisten.) Thanks for sharing - these are excellent!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
Perfect cookie! Got rave reviews at work. I rolled them into relatively small balls and filled with a black cherry jam (also using a small baggie with a tiny hole cut out at the end to fill the indents in the cookies.) Mine did not spread very much at all in the oven - maybe because I made them a bit smaller. Icing was perfect. Thanks for this recipe.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
Great taste - very brownie-like. However, they rose very high in the oven, but when removed, they flattened to almost nothing. (I may try a bit more flour next time.) I used junior mints, which looked terrible when spread, so I just pushed it into the cookie and left it like that. This made a lot of cookies! Thanks for sharing.

Marshmallow Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
I was looking to spruce up a boxed brownie mix and found this recipe. Even though I totally changed it, I still give it 5 stars for giving me the idea! I used a boxed brownie mix in a 13x9 pan, added the butterscotch chips and marshmallows to the prepared mix, spread in the pan and baked for about 30 minutes. The marshmallows did "rise" to the top of the pan, but it looks so pretty and tastes wonderful! The marshmallows got nice and soft and gooey and the chips make a great addition to the boxed mix. Thanks for the idea!
