Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
Easy recipe and was very good - 4.5 stars if I had that option.... it was missing SOMETHING though, so I added a TBSP of balsamic vinegar for a little zest. Next time I plan to try to use grape tomatoes as some of the other reviews recommended.

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
Very good - I did make some modifications after reading the reviews. I've made this recipe several times and the best thing I did was to half the amount of butter. You could probably even try a little less than that, but I didn't want to skip the butter entirely. I also use dried onion flakes for convenience. I've used cream of chicken in the past, but the last time I used cream of celery because it was what I had in the house. Still turned out wonderful.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
This recipe was super easy to put together and came out fantastic! My Italian husband even said it was good (he usually says things are 'fine'). I made some of the revisions that the other reviewers suggested... 1. Reduced ricotta to 15oz 2. Added slightly more sauce (I couldn't find one jar that had the required amount, so I got one big and one smaller one). 3. Baked it covered in foil.

Birthday Bones

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
I made these for our Golden Retriever for Christmas. I didn't use a cookie cutter, just rolled them in balls and pressed a fork across the top (mostly so I could distinguish the her cookies from the 'human' cookies). Very easy, very happy dog!

Krazy Kake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
My mom handed down a very similar recipe to me. Some variations: instead of water, you can use cold coffee. Also, we make a cinnamon and sugar mixture and generously sprinkle it all over the top of the cake before baking. I usually sprinkle a little more immediately after I take the cake out of the oven. This topping will form a sweet, crunchy crusty layer on top. I have also found that the cake tastes better the second day when the topping has a chance to set. I make this for all potlucks and parties that I go to. It doesn't have the greatest presentation, but it is delicious.

Turned out great! This was my first time making biscotti, I separated the dough and added 1/2 TBSP anise to half the mixture and for the other half, I added 1/2 TBSP of vanilla extract, 1 tsp of almond extract, and 1/4 cup of slivered almonds. I cooked them for 20 minutes, cooled them for 2 minutes and sliced with a pizza cutter like other reviewers recommended. Then I put them back in (biscuits on their sides) for 5 minutes, then flipped them to the other side and did another 5 minutes. They came out perfect!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
I made two batches of this fudge. The first, I think I cooked a little long, so it was harder. The second time, I cooked it less and also let it firm up in the fridge for only 15 minutes. I also have made this with marshmallows (28 full size marshmallows was the equivalent of the marshmallow creme) and I did half milk chocolate chips and half peanut butter. The peanut butter/chocolate mix was to die for! Great recipe to experiment with. I plan to make this as part of my Christmas gift baskets next year.
