Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
I've been a fan of Dump Cake for years. I got the recipe from my grandmother when I inherited her recipe collection. I recommend using either a 9x13 inch pan or an 8-9 inch square pan. I think the sqaure pan works best as it makes the cake thicker. This is also good with coconut added in. It's great served warm or at room temperature.

Easy Pasta Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
This is such an simple and delicious recipe. We loved it! I've got a picky eater and even he didn't complain. It tasted like chicken pot pie without the crust. Can we say comfort food? I love that it's not just easy and tasty, but it's also pretty healthy and leaves room for you to play around with the ingredients. I plan to add brocoli next time. And I've used canned mixed vegetables twice making this recipe and it worked out perfect - I didn't have to worry that the veggies might be undercooked.

Easy Ham and Cheese Appetizer Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I've loved these sandwiches for years. I hosted a baby shower several months ago and they were a huge hit. I usually skip the poppyseeds and have never made them with onions, but I'm sure they would be good that way also.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
I give this 5+++ hands down, and I believe everyone I served this cheesecake to would agree with me. I made the cheesecake for the first time, for a friend's birthday party and it was fabulous! I've made other cheesecake recipes before that were good, but this is above and beyond good. If I hadn't made it myself you could have served it to me and said it was from The Cheesecake Factory and I would have believed you, it was that good. It was creamy and smooth with the right amount of sweetness and no overwhelming cream cheese flavor. I served the cheesecake with a strawberry sauce, but it would have been great plain. This recipe will be the based for many many cheesecake variations in the future. My only issue was with the crust, instead of 15 graham crackers I just went ahead and used 2 packages which was 18 crackers, so I used 3 T. butter and that didn't seem like anywhere near enough, so I ended up using 5-6 T. Even if I would have used just 15 graham crackers I don't think the 2 T. of butter would have been enough.

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
A good & easy glaze. Perfect for when I want to make sugar cookies, but don't want all the time and effort that goes with royal icing. Doesn't make a huge batch, and the glaze is thin, so I recommend spooning over the cookies or dipping them in the glaze.

Better Than Sex Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
I made this cake a loooong time ago when I saw Paula Deen make the recipe. I can't remember if I used caramel sauce or chocolate syrup, I'm thinking chocolate syrup. But I know either way is "better than sex". This cake is sooo good, and so simple. I recommend it to any chocolate lover. 5 stars!

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
For some reason there are two recipes for this exactly the same, submitted by the same person, so I'm rating both. These crackers are so good! The recipe is simple and inexpensive. I made these a few days ago just to snack on and I've decided they're on the list for my next get together. I left out the dill weed because I don't really care for dill, I also left out the optional lemon pepper because I just can't imagine lemon pepper with ranch dressing, but maybe it's good. I did add the garlic powder though. I had an 18 oz package of oyster crackers, so I'm not sure if that was 5 cups or more/less. I cut back on the oil a tiny bit and it didn't compromise the recipe a bit. I definitely give this recipe the full 5 stars, which I don't often do!

Mock Ice Cream Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
I've made these with regular graham crackers and no chocolate chips. They are SO good! And they really do taste like ice cream sandwiches...best of all, without the guilt!

Easy Sausage Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Since before I was born, these sausage balls have been a Christmas tradition for my family. I took over the tradition officially when I was about 10 and have been making them ever since, in fact I just took a batch out a few minutes ago! For a more flavorful sausage ball I always use hot sausage and extra sharp cheddar cheese. So good!

Easy Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
These are the same as a Paula Deen recipe I made quite some time ago. This recipe is easy to make and definitely satisfies a sweet tooth craving.

Cream Cheese Candies

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
I found pretty much the same recipe in my Kitchen-Aide Mixer cookbook (not the booklet that comes with the mixer, but an actual cookbook sold in bookstores). It's been a while since I made these, but they were so easy and really tasty, not to mention they looked really cute. I suggest adding a little green or pink food coloring to get the desired color. I also rolled my mints in granulated sugar before flattening with a fork. After checking I see that the measurements for my recipe were a little different and are as follows: 3 oz light cream cheese 1/3 teaspoon peppermint extract 2-3 drops green food coloring (or color of your choice) 4 1/4 - 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar granulated sugar

Soda Cracker Chocolate Candy

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
I saw this recipe on show on the Food Network, can't remember which chef though. I've made it a time or two, but the version I made didn't contain nuts. Definitely a yummy treat.

Wedding Cake Frosting

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
This is a definite crowd pleaser, it's basically my go-to decorator buttercream recipe, but on a larger scale. It also works to use water in place of the milk, the taste isn't altered.

Jif® Crispy Treats

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
These are an awesome variation on the classic Rice Crispy Treats, especially if you love peanut butter. This version takes me back to my childhood big time. So good!

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
I really just used this recipe as a guide to figure out my oven temp and cooking time, but the asparagus was so good! I cleaned and prepared my asparagus and placed them on a foiled lined cookie sheet, drizzled some extra virgin olive oil over them and tossed to coat them. Then I sprinkled on some sea salt and parmesan cheese (I even cheated and used the kind in the green can). The oven temp and cooking time was pretty right on, I just cooked until the color looked right. I skipped the balsamic vinegar because the asparagus were so good without.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
I didn't make any major changes to the recipe. I added 1 tsp. vanilla, and I don't use butter flavored shortening so I used regular shortening and added 1 tsp. butter flavored extract. I was a little concerned about what the consistency of the batter would be like with so much fat (butter, shortening and peanut butter) and so little flour, but with such high ratings I decided to follow the instructions and see how it turned out. The batter was pretty soft, so I added roughly an extract 1/2 c. of oats. The dough worked fine, it didn't spread when baking and I didn't find it necessary to chill before baking. I made these today so I can't comment yet on how they taste or if they dry out/harden the following day, but we enjoyed them today. This recipe makes more of a peanut butter cookie and less of an oatmeal cookie. I would definitely make these again.

Simple Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
I've seen this recipe in so many different places. A friend gave me some leftover dip along with a copy of the recipe way back when and I thought it was really great, I just never found an opportunity to make it until finally I hosted a New Year's Eve party this year and made it. It was a big hit, and I can't tell you how easy it is to make. Just mix the few ingredients together in the dish you're going to bake it in and pop it in the oven. I served the dip with toasted mini rye bread, ritz crackers and garlic wheat thins.
