Peanut Butter Pie VIII

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
This pie was a very good version of a peanut butter pie but I was looking more for something like a Peanut Butter Custard Pie and not a separation of the peanut butter bottom layer and the custard on top. It did get me started on trying to come up with the more traditional peanut butter pie recipe that I grew up with though. Thanks for the great recipe!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I was very impressed with these brownies!!! They were quick and easy, I made these and frosted them with the Brownie Frosting recipe from this site for Father's Day. Super sweet but ohhh sooo yummy! I did as other reviewers have done and hand mixed these and they turned out fabulous! They were more of a fudge like consistency and less cakey than others have reviewed. These came together very quickly and I was able to pull the brownies out of the oven and then make the frosting and the brownies were still warm enough to frost the brownies immediately after all the chocolate chips were melted. This recipe is a Keeper!!!

Brownie Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I tried this frosting on the Best Brownies recipes from this website and absolutely fabulous! I made this for Father's Day and WOW how quick and easy this recipe was to throw together. The directions were spot on, I didn't have to change a thing. I was able to pull the brownies out of the oven and then make the frosting and the brownies were still warm to frost the brownies immediately after all the chocolate chips were melted. This recipe is a Keeper!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Many people asked for this recipe when I made it as a side recipe at a Pampered Chef Cooking Show. Followed the recipe to the T, no modifications at all. It makes a LARGE pot of soup, my group was 25 and there was still leftovers.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
I made these for a PTA Membership Teacher Luncheon and what a big hit! So many people asked for the recipe. They are easy peasy to make and super delish. I will be making these for many years to come. Thanks for the awesome recipe. I did take advice of others and froze the peanut butter cups and also cooled them in the fridge before putting them on the cooling rack.

Crispy Butterscotch Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
The concept sounded great but my results were just horrible...The cookie did get nice and puffy when cooking but when I took them out of the oven and put them on the cooling rack the fell...Yikes! My husbands 2cents are that they are very tasty and sweet the only problem is that they were flat and got crispy fast. I would have to say that I would most likely never make this recipe again.

Simple Country Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
Greatness!!! I made these a couple of times in like a week time frame. The first time I made them, they were not seasoned. The second time they had a deal going on at the grocery store buy one pack of seasoned boneless pork ribs get two free so I used those the second time around and WOW it was like a party in my mouth...lol! I made them the second time for a 4th of July party and received compliments from everyone. The host called the next day and asked for the recipe. There is such a great debate over grilling or boiling well I absolutely see NOTHING wrong with boiling ribs from here on out. The final result is like fall apart tender and juicy piece of meat.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
This was such an AWESOME recipe and it isn't anything different from what you already have in your cupboard. We used this as a last minute meal choice and I am so happy we did. This is a keeper. Much better than any canned mix you would buy at the grocery store and super simple and fast to put together. We actually did make a change to the recipe, we used ground turkey instead of ground beef.

Baby Blue Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
This was a great recipe! The mother to be and guests seemed impressed with the blue color and they all loved the ducks floating in the punch. !!!HOW CUTE!!! It was really easy to make just dump and stir. I did find that the sugar didn't want to dissolve that fast and the kool-aid did get a bit clumpy so you had to stir really good. So I think the next time I make this I would probably pour out half of the bottle of white cranberry juice into the punch bowl and then add the sugar and kool-aid packet into what is left in the bottle of juice and shake to dissolve the kool aid and the sugar better so that you don't take away from the (fizzy) carbonation of having to stir and stir the 7-UP along with everything else in the punch bowl. Once again, GREAT recipe and I was very pleased with the results!

Easy Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
I mixed what I had left of the "Exquisite Pizza Sauce" with the "Easy Pizza Sauce I" recipe and it happened to be the best pizza sauce ever. I left out the anchovy paste and the marjoram from the Exquisite Pizza Sauce and the rosemary from the Easy Pizza Sauce I, those where the only modifications that I made. My family was personally very pleased with the results.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
I had made this recipe with the intentions of it being enough for the two pizza pies that I had already started and realized that this was only about enough sauce for one pizza. So I started looking for another sauce to make with the ingredients that I had left and I came across another sauce. I mixed what I had left of the "Exquisite Pizza Sauce" with the "Easy Pizza Sauce I" recipe from this site and it happened to be the best pizza sauce ever. I left out the anchovy paste and the marjoram from the Exquisite Pizza Sauce and the rosemary from the Easy Pizza Sauce I, those where the only modifications that I made. My family was personally very pleased with the results.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
This was a different cake then you would expect. I think it had more of a decadent taste to it and would have been the absolute best with like a chocolate ganache icing or maybe even sprinkled with powdered sugar and topped with fresh strawberry. I made the recipe almost exactly as stated in the recipe that was submitted. The only thing I changed was the pan. I made it in a huge cake pan instead of three rounds. We were very pleased with the results and would make it again just with a better frosting then what we used.

Taco Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
This recipe got !Two Thumbs Up! from my entire family. I did make some modifications so I am not sure that it is fair to rate it. I used 93/7 ground turkey by Honeysuckle White 1lb, half an onion about 1/2c, a can of diced tomatoes, can of pinto beans, Taco Seasoning I (recipe from this site) instead of the package seasoning, a 4oz. can of chopped green chilies, 1c water and not the 1 1/2c that was suggested and Taco Flavored shredded cheese. I didn't use any avocado only because I didn't have any on hand. I bet that would have made it even better and I am not sure that is even possible. Thank You Darla for this great recipe. It will surely be put into rotation as one of our regular meals. oops almost forgot that also added a can of drained corn.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
I followed this recipe pretty close to what the recipe called for. I didn't have a cast iron skillet so I used a non stick baking pan. I used 1/2 cup of pineapple juice and 3/4 cup of water, I just melted the butter over the stove and then transfered it to the pan. I really could have just melted it in the oven and avoided an extra dirty dish. I also didn't have maraschino cherries. next time I think I might follow another users suggestion to add milk instead of water. Everybody enojoyed it and even had people going back for seconds. Great Recipe! This was my first attempt at a pineapple upside down cake and would use this recipe again and again.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
I believe I used to much water and that it might have dilluted the bouillon and garlic flavor a bit. I did make them pretty close to how the recipe has suggested and people really enjoyed them. I used everything Organic (russet potatoes, butter, sour cream and so on) accept the cream cheese and I was pleased. This was my very first time to make mashed potatoes and I must say that it seemed I was making a mountain out of a mole hill because they were super simple to make.

English Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Really Awesome Basic Recipe! So much better for you than fried potatoes and really tasty. My entire family loved them. I used fresh ground sea salt and ground pepper and baked them for the time suggested and then broiled for about 4 minutes to get them just perfect, just as another reviewer had suggested. Two Thumbs Up!

Penne Pasta with Cannellini Beans and Escarole

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
This recipe was awesome. I cooked a little garlic and onion in a bit of olive oil before I added the escarole and other ingredients. I also used about half of the juice from the can of tomatoes with garlic and onion. I loved it and we will continue to make this again and again. This recipe should get 5 stars alone on how easy it is to make.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
We tried this recipe tonight and got really good reviews from everybody. My family and then extended family were over and they all LOVED it! The picture doesn't do justice for this recipe. My husband said this would be a recipe he would like to keep in rotation. Tasted better with flour tortillas we all thought and added the cheese individually. Other than that I followed the recipe to a T. A+++
