Can't Leave Alone Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
Hey, I tried submitting this recipe! No wonder mine has sat in review for a year! LOL :) This recipe is so good, have been making it for years. Versatile too, you can use chocolate cake mix and butterscotch chips for something different.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
This was pretty good. I followed it to a "T" and found it to be a bit dry (I guess it's supposed to be that way but I wanted more liquid), so I added a small can of tomato sauce (213 ml) and that helped, plus it helped cut down on the sweetness. Kids liked that there were no peppers. Next time I make this I'm going to mix the liquid ingredients first before putting it into the hamburger mixture. Thanks for the recipe!

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
This is a good recipe as written. My favorite is using chocolate or lemon pudding. I also use a variation of this recipe with Dream Whip, sub in 1 pkg of dream whip for the Cool Whip, and use 1 1/4 cup cold milk (everything else the same). Good if you don't happen to have Cool Whip on hand. You do have to beat this version longer and let sit for a bit before spreading.

Party Kielbasa

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
I wasn't as blown away as the rest of the reviewers who liked this. It wasn't a bad flavor, but pretty sweet, which says alot as I have a killer sweet tooth. I agree that maybe less jelly would help. Not sure if I'll try this again though, but thanks for the recipe!

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
Made both as written and with a small change. I like the cream of mushroom soup better than the chicken. I also omit the topping, just because I never seem to have crushed cornflakes, and it is perfectly fine w/o. Here's a tip on how to get it to mix better. Make sure hash browns are thawed as per recipe instructions. Pour melted butter/margarine over the potatoes and mix. Then add the cheese and mix. Lastly add the rest of the ingredients. It seems to mix faster and better for me this way. It does need the full hour to cook or your onions will be crunchy. I usually divide this in half between 2 smaller casseroles, eat one for dinner and freeze the other. Thanks for the great recipe! Update: 15/02/07 - Tried the suggestion of putting french fried onions on top instead of the cornflakes - absolutely awesome! Don't put in at the start though...put in last 10-15 min and cook uncovered (watch as they burn easily), I sprinkled some extra cheese on top with the onions and it was really good!

French Toast I

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
Tastes just like the french toast at our local restaurant. The only "problem" I have is that the cinnamon kind of floats on the top of the batter and your first couple of slices are more cinnamony than others, even with lots of stirring. I've made this as written and without nutmeg, I prefer it without the nutmeg.

Roast Beef and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
The flavor on this is so awesome, however, I am only rating it a 4 because it was a bit salty. Perhaps next time I could try using reduced sodium products or throwing a raw potato in the liquid while it is cooking (I know this works for stew but not sure how it would work with a roast). Otherwise very tasty and fork tender.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
This is probably the best ham I've ever tasted - I can't wait to show off for company with thie recipe! I didn't have an orange so I used the tip from another reviewer to sub in 1/3 cup orange juice. Update: This is my go-to recipe for ham. The glaze makes it nice and juicy, not dried out and stringy. Does have a bit of a stronger taste with the cloves but we enjoy it.

Chop Suey

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
Pretty good, I used oil instead of shortening though.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
I was disappointed with this recipe after all the good reviews. Hubby and I did NOT like the taste of the cinnamon. If I ever did try again I would omit the cinnamon, as we did like the sweetness of the marinade.

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
These are very good! We've also used minced roasted garlic for a nice change. Love the addition of the parmesan! We didn't leave the skin on though. Also used the tip on this site of adding milk before butter and that works great

Corn Chowder I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Good stuff! I like to substitute dill for the paprika, but I really like dill.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
Tried this exactly as written first, although the lemon juice and beef bouillon scared me a bit. I did double the sauce and was glad I did. Was very good! Update: I can't tell you how many times I've made this and I ALWAYS get asked for the recipe. It is the ONLY meatloaf I make now! I do cut down on the sugar a bit but it is good as written.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
This went over very well at my kids baptism today. I did the recipe as written and there wasn't a drop left. I used the tip of freezing overnight in 2 Ziploc bags, and laying flat on a cookie sheet to freeze. It was perfect the next day, not frozen solid and turned perfectly slushy when I poured in the pop. I will definitely use this again. Thanks! UPDATE: I made this again but used cherry jello. Was still good but my family prefers the strawberry. The punch gets sweeter as the slush melts, which the kids like but adults don't - going to reduce the sugar to 2 cups next time.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
I made a similar recipe on this site which uses the beef broth instead of the water. I found that one to be too salty. I followed this recipe to the letter and it was perfect. I needed to add a little pepper which was minor but otherwise, very tasty and fork tender!

Macaroni and Cheese V

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
This was just OK. I guess I am just used to the boxed mac and cheese, the texture and flavor was different. It wasn't a bad taste, just kind of blah for me, and a little grainy in texture. My husband didn't care for it either, he said it would be better with the cheese just melted on top and not into the white sauce. Probably won't make again, but thanks anyway!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
These are really good. Followed the recipe to a T, except for I discovered I didn't have 2 boxes of vanilla, so I had to use one butterscotch. Turned out fine, tasted really good, were nice and soft. Will try again with both vanilla puddings to get the true taste. Won't try with chocolate as we use the Cake Mix Cookies VI recipe from this site and it is easier (fewer ingredients)

Cake Mix Cookies VII

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
I have made these cookies several times and thought I'd share my tips with you: 1) Don't use a stand mixer to mix, it will overbeat the dough and the oil separates, making the texture not that great; 2) When using harder add-ins like toffee chips, it has a tendency to break up the dough, so use less than 1 cup; 3) The combination that goes over the best with a crowd (in my experience) is Devil's Food with milk choc chips, and 4) If using Pampered Chef, bake the full 10 minutes. These cookies definitely aren't gourmet but they whip up fast. Finally, don't taste one until they are completely cooled, not a cookie you want to eat warm. Hope these help!

Quesadillas II

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
I recently discovered this recipe and wish I had sooner - this is so easy and fast. I used precooked chicken breast which made it even easier and grilled them like a grilled cheese sandwich rather than using my oven. Careful if you are nursing though - my baby did not seem to like it afterwards - too spicy! Will have to wait to have them again...

Jet Swirl Pizza Appetizers

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
Glad I tried this...better than just making plain ol pizza on a refrigerated pizza crust! Had no provelone so just used mozza and it was fine. No problems with it being greasy. As per other reviewers, put it seam side down, added some pizza sauce on top of meat (not too much), and baked for 28 minutes (used Pampered Chef stoneware, and it turned out perfectly golden brown). Let it sit before cutting for sure. Served with warmed pizza sauce for dipping. Very nice change of pace and good for kids, mine always pick off the cheese and they didn't seem to notice it in these. As for the person who said the ends were just bread...they are, but just butter them and eat like hot buns or dip in the pizza sauce...still good!
