Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
Forget the double boiler. Put the chocolate/shortening in the microwave. Zap it for 30 seconds. Stir. Zap it for 30 more seconds. Done. Dip your berries. This recipe covered 30 healthy-sized berries for me. Enjoy! A good rule of thumb to remember is 1 Tablespoon of shortening for every 1 Cup of chocolate chips. I used semi-sweet chips. I decorated the berries with 1/3 Cup melted white chips. I put the melted chips in a ziploc bag, poked a hole in one of the corners and squeezed the chocolate onto the berries. Mmmmm!

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
I used my large mixer with a wire beater instead of my tiny processor. This recipe makes a large amount that my processor cannot accomodate. Came out wonderfully. Next time I'll double the amount of tomatoes and nuts and increase the pesto to 1 c. since there is so much cheese mixture. Let it come to room temperature before eating, otherwise it will be crumbly. This is a wonderful recipe for entertaining.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
I switched out the choc. syrup for hot fudge. I mixed the hot fudge with the peanut butter without needing to heat anything. That way I didn't have to wait for any cooling before assembling the dessert. My pan had enough room for 24 ice cream sandwiches. DEFINITELY spread the chocolate mixture on before the Cool Whip. I added some caramel on top of the Cool Whip which made for a nice presentation. Since this was being served to a party with kids, I feared they wouldn't eat it with nuts. So, I used 8 crumbled Reese's cups in place of the peanuts. Next time I'll use more Reese's cups because everyone wanted a piece of the dessert with lots of the cups on it. When beginning the second layer, make sure you push down on the ice cream sandwiches to eliminate any air pockets in the dessert and to give yourself more room in the pan. I used a 9x13 cake pan, which is deeper than my 9x13 Pyrex dish, and the dessert filled it to the top. This is a super easy recipe. It's easy enough for beginning cooks and kids to make. The options for different tastes are plentiful. Well done!

Taco Salad I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I used Catalina dressing in lieu of French dressing. I used black beans instead of chili beans. I also added a can of corn, drained, to the mixture. Recipe is a keeper as the whole family enjoyed. Thanks.

Ultimate Frozen Strawberry Margarita

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
There wasn't anything remarkable about this margarita recipe. I needed to double the amount of strawberries in order to draw out some strawberry taste. I don't think I will use again. Thanks anyway.

Dried Beef Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I didn't use the MSG. Even after rinsing all the beef, I still found this too salty. I recommend using onion powder not onion salt.

Southern Grits Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I'm giving this 4 stars because of the changes I made. But, with those changes, the opinion here is that it is 5-star dish. I used 8 eggs instead of 12. I added 2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. I assembled the casserole, except for the last 1 cup of cheese, and then froze it. When it came time to serve it, I pulled it out of the freezer early in the morning and heated it in a 325 degree oven until warmed through. I put the final cup of cheese on top and put back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese was melted. It's a definite keeper!

White Chocolate Snack Mix

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Love this recipe. My family calls it Reindeer Chow. It's a great holiday snack to have around the house or to bring to school/office parties as it makes a massive amount. It's easy to half if you're feeding a smaller crowd. Thanks!

Cinnamon Snack Mix

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
I think this recipe would have still received 5-stars from me even if I hadn't tinkered with it. However, I did make changes since it was for a school party. Like others, I substituted cheerios for the ramen noodles. I substituted 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows (added AFTER baking) for the almonds. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. I too thought that since it was in the name it should be in the recipe. Since others were reporting that it was getting too brown in the oven, I turned my oven temperature WAY down to 250 degrees. I left the mix in for 45 minutes, stirring at 15 min. intervals, until most of the moisture had been absorbed so it wouldn't come out soggy. It was a hit with the kids. I will definitely be using this again. Thanks!

Bing Cherry Gelatin Mold

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
I couldn't taste the Coke that was used in making this salad. It tasted like it does when using water instead of Coke. Next time I'll use water in the recipe and drink the Coke. I omitted the nuts.

Angel Food Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I changed 3/4 cup of confectioner's sugar to 1 cup of confectioner's sugar. I also added 2 cups mini chocolate chips to the batter just prior to pouring it into the pan. The cake turned out well. I chose not to frost it but dusted it with sifted confectioner's sugar instead.

Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
Yummy! The only substitution I used was honey in place of molasses. I prepared these for grilled burgers. I agree that some of the onion flavor is lost with the other ingredients added. It's not bad, just different. I won't use this on burgers again because I like the onion flavor to dominate in caramelized onions. I will, however, add this to baked beans in the future. Thanks!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
I used a T. of lemon juice instead of lemon pepper. I didn't think this recipe needed any extra salt due to the soy sauce, so I didn't add it. We thoroughly enjoyed this easy and tasty recipe.

Cindy's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Loved this recipe. I used Andouille sausage. One could probably add another cup of rice to make this less "liquidy." Adjust the Cajun seasoning to your personal taste.

Dill Dip III

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
This recipe makes a very large amount. I prepared it as written. I felt it was a little heavy on the mayo taste and quite salty. I would decrease the salt, especially if serving with chips. I also found the onion flavor to overwhelm the dill flavor.

Simple, Classic Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I used 2 (15 oz.) packages of pie crusts so the potpies would have a bottom and top crust. I altered the 9 Tablespoons flour to 1/2 cup flour. I also added 8 oz. of fresh sliced mushrooms. Aside from those minor adaptations, I prepared the recipe as written. Turned out yummy. Thanks.

Frosty Pineapple Salad

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
I found the whipped topping flavor overpowering in this recipe. Family members didn't care for the texture of the crushed pineapple within the salad. Won't use again. Sorry.
