Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This was extremely easy and delicious. I won the candy portion of a contest at work with this one. Here is what I did...I doubled the recipe, used square pretzels and Rolo candies, topped with a pecan before baking for 3 minutes, smashed down gently as soon as I removed them from the oven and drizzled with white chocolate after they were cooled.

I got this recipe from my mother-in-law and my entire family loves them. We always use white almond bark. They are so simple to assemble and are just delicious. I recommend these to anyone!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
I made this for my son's 3rd birthday party this past weekend(for the adults) and I didn't even get to try it. I changed a couple of things, because I had it on hand. I used 2 cans of bean dip instead of the plain refried beans. Because of the bean dip, I just mixed the taco seasoning with the sour cream/cream cheese mixture. I was so busy with the party, but the guests said that it was really good. My husband said that the salsa was kind of watery. So, make sure that you drain it a little or get chunky salsa so that it won't be runny. Thanks for the recipe, and hopefully I'll get to try it next time I make it.

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
This was Ok, but nothing I'll be making again. My husband liked it better than I did. If I were to make it again, I would double the veggies and maybe add more macaroni, but I didn't care for the taste enough to even try it again.

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
Delicious! It would have had more flavor if I had marinated it over night. I only did for 2 hours, but it was still awesome. I also used EVOO instead of the sesame oil, because the sesame oil was $11 and there wasn't that much of it in the recipe anyway. Thanks so much for an awesome recipe. This will be used in my home from now on=)

Ranch Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
Ok, we loved the texture of these burgers, but we weren't as crazy about the taste. We took the suggestions of others and added 2 ranch packets, which was too much for our taste. I also used a huge onion, which didn't help. This would have probably been perfect with the onion soup mix and one ranch packet. I gave it 5 stars because the original recipe would have been perfect=) We will try it that way. Thank you so much=)

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
Ok, we tried what others suggested by using 7up instead of water and Corona or Corona Light for the beer along with the limeade concentrate. I liked it ok with the 7up, but my husband did not. He said that it was way too strong. So, the second time I made it, I used Corona Light, Water (not 7up), limeade concentrate, and only 10oz of tequila. This made it perfect for us.

Gooey Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
These were wonderful=)I did have to follow the suggestions of deloreschl, by refrigerating overnight and using a cookie scoop. They were easy and my son loved them. I have another recipe for cake mix cookies that is similar to this one, but my cookies always turned out flat with it. I had to bake for about 12 minutes, but the cookies turned out perfect. Thanks so much for a great recipe and thanks to deloreschl for all of the helpful suggestions. My picky 2 year old son, ate 4 and a half of these before bed tonight, so they are a keeper for my family=)

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
I am so sorry, but we didn't like these at all. The juice was too runny and the pork chops were like rubber. I'm so sorry, but were really disappointed with this =(

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Absolutely delicious. I did add extras. I used 5 cups of diced potatoes, 1 cup of finely chopped onions, and 4 chicken bouillon cubes. I didn't put ham or celery in mine because of personal preference and it was still excellent. My hubby just finished his and agreed, that it was excellent. We've tried many recipes lately that haven't been very tastey, so this was a pleasant surprise. Thank you so much=) This is a KEEPER=)

Garbage Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
I'm sorry, but this wasn't very flavorful. I added salt and pepper and it was still pretty bland. I always give high ratings when I like things, but we threw away most of this.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
WOW! This was absolutely awesome. My 2year old son, husband, and father-in-law loved this and that's rare in my house. I was so excited. This smelled wonderful as well. I did what others said to do...Used Kikkoman teriyaki baste & glaze (in the oriental section at the store), I mixed the ranch and teriyaki prior to brushing on the chicken. I used the jarred real bacon pieces and I put them and the cheese on 15 minutes before the chicken was done. I cut the chicken into smaller pieces and next time I will cut all of them into smaller pieces and make a little more sauce, maybe 2/3 cup of ranch and 2/3 cup of teriyaki sauce. WE ALL LOVED THIS STUFF=) THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE GREAT RECIPE=)

Special Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Ok, this was pretty good. I followed the advice of other reviewers and drained the relish and made I cut back on the horseradish a little. The flavor was great, but they were a little runny, still. This was my first time ever making deviled eggs and I will definitely try this out again. I think everyone enjoyed them, I just wish they wouldn't have been so thin. I would still definitelyt recommend trying this recipe out.

Coconut Poke Cake

Reviewed: May 19, 2007
I made this earlier today for my father-in-law, who loves coconut cake. He loved it. He said that the only thing he would change is the type of cake mix used, he said it was really great but would be even better with yellow cake mix. Also, I would mix the coconut with the whip cream before spreading on the cake. I didn't like the idea of just spreading the coconut on top. Everyone should try this recipe. It is good and pretty easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe =)

Upside Down Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2006
This was great! I altered this recipe a great deal but it was a good basic recipe. I used mozzerella, pepperoni, green pepper, onion, and pizza sauce instead of spaghetti sauce. I used one can of crescent roll dough. Next time I will use 2 cans of crescent rolls. One on top and one on the bottom layer so that we can pick it up to eat it. Of course then it won't be an upside down pizza but it will still be good. Thanks so much. This is a keeper=)

French Toast I

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2006
This was excellent! I used Texas Toast instead of plain bread. I also used the cinnamon, vanilla, and just a little nutmeg. I dusted the top with powdered sugar and poured maple syrup over them. My hubby and my 10 month old son gobbled it up. I only got a little taste but it was delicious. Thanks for a great recipe. This is definately a keeper=)

Seven Minute Frosting I

Reviewed: May 5, 2006
It took alot longer than 7 minutes and it never did get to the right thickness. I didn't think it was sweet enough either. I won't be making this one again=(

Wilderness Place Lodge Cookies

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
There was too much going on in these cookies. I thought they would be really good but they flattened out and didn't have a good taste. I won't be making these again but thanks anyway=)
