Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
Even though I made a mistake and used milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet, I was thoroughly impressed with this glaze. Two of the cake eaters thought it was store bought. If you use milk chocolate chips, expect a very, very rich frosting taste. Oh, and I microwaved this and added the vanilla when it was all melted down.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
Yum! Very easy to make, incredibly moist. It could have been a tad bit sweeter for my buds but that's a simple fix. I used a bundt pan, it looked beautiful. I topped with Satiny Chocolate Glaze the first time but tried Hard Chocolate Glaze the second time. I totally prefer the Hard Chocolate Glaze, not too sweet but very rich!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Excellent! I would give five but I had to add spices to make it perfect. Great starter though. I love the sour cream in it, certainly couldn't skimp on that for it makes the recipe what it is. Thanks for this awesome recipe!

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Very good! Only thing was that I had to use tomato paste vs. tomato sauce. That worked out in my favor I think. I still added the same amount of water and my filling did NOT come out runny at all. It was perfect. My kids loved it, picky son gave it 4.5 stars despite it being loaded with onions. Depending on the onions you use, it adds texture more than taste (which is a.o.k.)!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Very good! I mostly followed the recipe except I added about 1 teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning for extra flavor. And I only used ONE can of biscuits. Anymore would have been too much in my opinion. I've seen some different opinions about the fridge biscuits but I like it. I rolled them flat and tore them to little pieces. They apparently float, lol, but they still managed to cook up. I left mine in for an hour though. After all done I added some cooked carrots and corn for some veggies. I will make again!

Easy Dump Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I'm a chocolate lover, but even this was too rich for me. I like a lighter, airy texture to my cakes, this was heavy, almost raw. It sounded so good but I was so disappointed and felt wasteful since I ended up throwing in the garbage. Like someone else said, it was tough and hard on the outside, but gooey and rawlike on the inside.

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
First time making quiche and it came out great! I used a ready made crust and it came out just fine. I added one extra egg per other suggestions but it gave me a little too much mixture, no big deal though. I mixed swiss, cheddar and some parmesean cheese and put in 8 slices of bacon. It was so good and it set perfectly! I did cook for an extra five minutes. I will definetly make this again!

Chocolate Chip Cake Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
Very easy, very good, very rich! This is my new cookie bar recipe for good. I would recommend serving in small pieces. It's versatile so you can add or omit whatever you like in terms of nuts and chocolate chips. I myself omitted the nuts and added half chocolate chips and half plain M&M's. I was very short on time so I also skipped the glaze even though it looked delicious. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
Whoa! The first word out of my mouth after tasting. My mom made this at my house for herself and when I smelled the black beans after she opened the can, I thought there is no way this could be good. But it was! She has certainly found her recipe for gluten free brownies. Not even the store gluten-free mixes compare to this! But I agree with some others, I think nuts would be a perfect addition to this. Other than that, it's truly amazing! (How anyone thought of putting black beans in there, I don't know. But it's genius!)

Pumpkin-Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
These were just okay to me. I used just a tad less oil than called for but it was just way too oily for me. When I ate them out of the oven I thought they were weird tasting, but after keeping them in the fridge for a day the flavors seemed to come out more. I liked the taste and if I make them again I will reduce the oil a lot!!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
Wow, followed the recipe almost exactly, so good! I had one package of boneless and one package of ribs with the bone to equal just over 3#. It stayed in crockpot for five hours (I fell asleep) and it made no difference. I also used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and it was delicious. I honestly believe it must go into the oven to really get the flavors etched into the meat. Really does seem fail-proof and it's ridiculously easy. Hardest part was trying to find the boneless ribs for it.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
I was hesitant to try this recipe, I thought it was a weird array of ingredients, but glad I did. It is a WONDERFUL combo of flavors. It does need to eaten up rather quickly and is not meant for leftovers. I've read some complaints about the high fat and sugar content, so if you're looking for a health salad this isn't it. I know I didn't pick this recipe for it's health value and didn't expect it to be a 200 calorie dish. Will make again next summer!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
Very nice and the directions previuosly mentioned for a kitchen mixer worked out very well. I have made it three times, one with all the suger, one with half sugar and one with 2 tblsp sugar. I personally liked the half amount of sugar. I prefer my bread a little sweeter and that amount was just right. I honestly wouldn't attempt it without my kitchen mixer though, it saves a lot of elbow grease!!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
After reading other reviews, I was expecting the consistency, which certainly was a kind of cakey like texture. I also put in the fridge and the next day they did taste better because the choc chips were solid (instead of melty). Second time I made these I added 1 tblsp pumpkin pie seasoning and that REALLY brought out the flavor of pumpkin. Great recipe!! UPDATE: I made Cream Cheese Frosting II and put on top. HEAVENLY!

Peanut Butter Cookies IX

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
This is by far my all time favorite cookie ever! I've been making this recipe for a couple of years now. I follow the recipe but use just a skiff less sugar than required and I add closer to a cup of peanut butter. I use my smaller sized cookie scooper, set my over at 370 and bake for 6 minutes. I almost forgot to mention that I grind the oats just a little bit for a preferred texture.

Quick Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
I needed a quick, easy dessert recipe for my mom who is allergic to gluten. Wow, did I come across the perfect recipe! I agree, you do have to love peanut butter as it is very rich. I read others saying it fell apart on them, but what I did is mix the ingredients in the morning, put the batter in the fridge and when I got home that evening, I baked them. I also used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar which I think gives it a better consistency. They came out perfect little (slight) mounds. They do need to be rolled into small balls, about 3/4". I've made this recipe a few times now and what I do if I don't want to bake all of them, is keep them in an airtight container and just bake as I want them. I've kept the batter in the fridge for as long as a week. This is the PERFECT easy, gluten free cookie!

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2007
I really like this! I'm not a good cook but was proud when my hubby told me he really liked it (tough critic). I did add quite a bit of hot sauce which gave it the perfect kick. I liked it better the next day; although I did nuke it in the microwave. Yum!

Soft Molasses Cookies V

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
I love how soft these cookies are!!!! I agree that this recipe lacks taste. I will certainly make again, but add more spices as other suggested. Then it would be a five star cookie. VERY SOFT! PERFECTO on consistency!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
It's a simple recipe, but a little too rich for my family. I had never used canned spinich and probably won't again. If I make this recipe again, I would use half the amount of cheese and after cooked set it on a FRESH bed of spinich instead.
