Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
I thought that this was a wonderful cookie. I added 1 tsp. of instant espresso powder for a more decadent chocolate flavor. I find that a small sized ice cream scooper made baking these cookies a breeze and less messy!

Turtle Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
This is very good and very rich. I used the caramel bits, (found in baking isle), so that eliminated the unwrapping. However they are only 11 oz. not 14 oz. So I used 2-1/2 TBSP butter, 2 tsp. vanilla, and 1/2 cup of evaporated milk to melt the caramels in the microwave. I nuked for 3-1/2 min. at 70% power. That way the caramel thickens. Do try the evaporated milk as it intensifies the caramel flavor. I thought the chocolate frosting too sweet so I upped the chocolate to 1/2 cup of bitter-sweet chocolate chips. I thought it was very decadent, and I would be proud to serve this to family and friends. Thank you for sharing your lovely recipe, K. Casler.

Kentucky Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
This was my jumping off recipe for a chocolate pecan pie. I'm basing my review for my additions. However, I can't imagine that it wouldn't be grand as it is written. I sprinkled the bottom of the deep dish crust, (unbaked), with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Instead of a full cup of light corn syrup I used 1/2 cup of light corn syrup and 1/2 cup of Lyle's Golden Cane Syrup, and added 2 tsp. of vanilla. It gave the pie a wonderful caramel taste. I did have to bake about 1 1/2, but I tented the pie with aluminum foil so the top wouldn't burn. It was absolutely what I was looking for, and it will be my go-to recipe in the future. Thanks for letting me experiment with your wonderful recipe, Laurie.

Beef and Onion Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Don't be dismayed by the vinegar and lemon pepper - it's what makes the dish. It was warm and comforting served over buttered egg noodles and oven roasted Brussels sprouts for the side, (On a large jelly roll pan, place frozen sprouts coated with olive oil, sprinkled with roasted garlic sea salt and pepper. Baked at 375 degrees until crispy about 25-35 minutes). I followed the recipe and added fresh mushrooms to the stew, as I wanted to use them before they "expired". This was so delicious, and I will make this again. My whole family really enjoyed this, and I would serve this to company for an impressive yet stress free dinner.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
This was so good! I added 1 tsp. of instant espresso as it adds depth of flavor to the chocolate. I melted the butter and proceeded with the recipe as directed. It was creamy and glossy, and perfect for my son's birthday cake. This will be my go-to butter cream frosting. I did double the recipe to frost and fill 2- 8 inch layer cakes.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
This was excellent! So delicious and moist. The steak sauce gives it a nice kick. I love the combination of slightly sweet and tangy. I served this with honey roasted potatoes, (from this site), and I added dijon to the potatoes as well, and broccoli on the side. Something new to do with chicken that will be a standard in our home.

Caroline's Chocolate Fudge Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
This was a very good frosting. I upped the chocolate to 4 oz. and used 1/2 cup of milk, and it was perfect. I piped it on my daughter's birthday ice cream cone cupcakes. (Remember those?) Needless to say my newly turned 6 year old is very impressed! Infact, we all were.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Sublime, divine, dare I say "perfection"? This has to be the most awesome pie I have put into my mouth in a long time. I put the filling into a "nilla wafer" crust, and topped mine w/ homemade whipped cream, (a pint), sweetened w/ 2 TBSP. powdered sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Sublime, divine, and dare I say perfection? Wait a minute, I already said that! ;)

Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
My daughter, son, and I really enjoyed this oatmeal. Considering that they don't really like oatmeal that is saying a lot! I added a tsp. of vanilla extract and cinnamon as well. Blueberries are a nice addition as well. It's very satisfying and tasty. I can't wait to add it to my autumn routine.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
I made this recipe by memory today due to my computer crashing. I forgot the butter. Guess what? You don't need it! I also added 1 tsp. maple extract, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. This was so good that I had to give it away for fear of eating it all myself. Just perfect on a rainy cool Autumn day. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
This was really good, but I was short on time so I streamlined it a bit. After I warmed the oil and garlic, (I made extra so I could saute fresh spinach), I poured the whole bit in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. I rotated the breasts in the oil, and then I sprinkled the breadcrumbs on top of the chicken. Finally I topped w/ shredded parm. cheese. I served this w/ angel hair pasta, marinara sauce, and sauteed spinach. It was really good,and if you ladled a bit of the marinara over the chicken it tasted like chicken parm. Will make again!

Berries 'N' Cream

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
I cannot believe that something so simple could be this delicious! I used dark brown sugar and added 1 tsp. of vanilla extract, so it really had an intense caramel taste. It truly does taste like caramel dipped strawberries, and it couldn't be easier. I can't wait to serve this at my next get together as it is unique and yummy!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
These were so good! I didn't have dry mustard so I used 2 TBS of dijon mustard, and I upped the butter to 3 TBS., the honey to 3 TBS, added 2 tsp. onion powder and about 3 TBS of olive oil. Of course I diced about 6 large red potatoes. I placed that potatoes in a lined 11x17 baking sheet and topped w/ the remaning ingredients. I baked for 50 minutes and finished under the broiler for about 3 minutes. I served w/ grilled filet mignons and roasted aparagus w/ parm. cheese. It was a most excellent meal, and I highly recommend this recipe. Do try the dijon mustard as it gave the potatoes a zippy taste.

Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
This is our go to summer recipe! We do this with shrimp as well, but we precook the bacon in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes. (Place bacon in a single layer between 5 sheets of paper towels on both sides.) We've also just marinated whole chicken breasts and shrimp, and sandwiched the meat between the bacon and placed in a grill basket. When prepared this way we grill the mushrooms seperately. This is so good served w/ a rice pilaf and "That Good Salad" from this site.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I'm on the hunt for THE meatloaf recipe, and for us this is the one. I, too, didn't add the entire pkg of soup mix. I added some garlic and onion powder and pepper. I also topped w/ glaze of honey, worch. sauce, and ketchup. We loved it, and not a bit left over! Too bad! ;(

Grilled Marinated Swordfish

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
My family and I are new to eating fish, and we loved this! It smelled so good as hubby was grilling it. I had to make a few changes as I didn't have everything on hand. I used Melting Pot seasoning blend - it has dehydrated wine in it, granulated garlic, and I added rotisserie chicken seasoning. I served this with a tossed salad, and cooked new potatoes and peas mixed w/ pesto sauce and lemon juice. YUM! YUM! Try it, because you won't be disappointed.

Rueben Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
We really enjoyed this at our home. Please don't judge, but I didn't have time to make dough. I had a Pillsbury french loaf that filled in nicely. Instead of mustard I made 1000 island dressing, (mayo, ketchup, and pickle relish). The possibilities are endless, ham and cheese, Philly cheese-steak, Italian meats w/marinara, turkey w/ bacon and Caesar dressing. . . The sky is the limit! Thank you, NEHCTERG, for the wonderful recipe.

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
This was so delicious, and satisfying w/ greek marinated grilled chicken. I, too, added more feta along w/ 1 tsp. of dill weed. Dill is common in Greek cooking, and it was a nice added touch as it balanced the harshness of the oregano. This will be a nice change of pace this summer and many summers to come!

Laura's Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
Can you say YUM? These are divine, and have THE best crispy bits. I always pour the oil and butter on the cut up potatoes IN the baking pan. Then I just toss with my hands, (cook's best tool), and no extra bowl to clean - Bonus! UPDATE: After the potatoes were cooked, I put them under the broiler for about 2-4 minutes. The more golden and crispier the better!
