Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Really good! Followed the recipe exactly and wouldn't change a thing. My family really enjoyed and I will make again. I ate mine on a toasted bun with a splash of bleu cheese dressing and some melted cheese. Yum!

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
FanFreakingTastic! Really these more than lived up to the raves they've been getting. I doubled the batch with great results. I ((blush)) screwed up my first batch by overmixing. Found Marianne on the exchange who advised me to incorporate the flour mixture only until wet....with that advice the next batch looked as great as they tasted. Will make these again and again. Thanks for the recipe and the help Marianne!!

World's Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
We recently had the very best potato salad we had ever eaten at a local restaurant. I rarely make it at home but really was determined to find a recipe we could love as much as the one at the restaurant. Who can argue with a name like "world's best"? I had to try this and I'm glad I did. I made "as is" being this was my first try with this recipe and the only thing I would change next time, and there will be a next time, is a bit less sugar but that is just my personal preference. My hubby has been eating it all day and that is always a good sign.

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
I'm not sure why but I've only eaten asparagus once before in a risotto. With the abundance of fresh asparagus available right now and the fact I'm trying to eat more veggies I figured it was time to give it a try. This looked like the best way to let the true flavor of the veggie come through and boy did it! I loved it! Awesome, simple, fresh!!

Lemon Cooler Cream Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Simple to make and great for a springtime dessert. It was moist and had great flavor. I love lemons and added lemon zest to the cake batter. I also used lemon pudding in the frosting instead of the vanilla as many suggested. Will, for sure, make this again.

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Made this for Easter appetizers. They made a great presentation and the fresh basil leaves added a nice touch for color and flavor. No one liked the dipping sauce however, but taste is subjective. I will make this again but use a different dipping sauce and will marinate the mozz. as many suggest.

Root Beer Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
My grill has been buried in an pile of snow 8 feet deep since December. It finally broke free so I was looking for the perfect recipe to welcome it back and boy was this it! These chops were so moist and tender with just the right amount of sweetness. We enjoyed them tremendously. My one complaint? I wish I had made MORE! Chalk this one up to another great recipe from Ken! Please keep the recipes coming!

Mike's Signature Pretzel Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
Finally! I just took my very first batch out of the oven and it was my first time working with yeast. The bread taste great!! It's not as prety as I hoped, the top isn't quite a uniform brown but I should have let it bake a few more minutes, my fault. However , it taste wonderful! I have to go now, my daughter is in the kichen snarfing it down and I want more!

Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
After all the awesome reviews on the Recipe Exchange I finally got around to making these and wonder what took me so long? These were wonderful. Easy and really good! I did have to use limes due to DD's allergy and I made these in my slow cooker. Husband and son gobbled this up and my hubby was excited about taking leftoves for lunch. Thanks Ken for an awesome recipe!

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
My 17 year old son loves the scampi at the big seafood chain. In trying to save my pocket book from imploding I thought I would try to make it at home. Being as my son gobbled this up and there was barely any left for anyone else I would call this a bonafide hit. I added garlic powder and was out of fresh parsley but those were the only changes. This was quick, easy and goes into our mealtime regular rotation. Thanks!! We served it over pasta

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Deciding to make brownies at the last minute on Valentine's Day but not wanting to go to the store due to a ground blizzard led me to searh for "easy brownies" and wah lah these came up first. They sure lived up to their name and I was really pleased with the results. I did add in some chocolate chips to the mix and a bit of oil and used one less egg as many reviews suggested. I'll make these again for sure when I want something sweet and homemade but really quick and easy. Thanks for the recipe.

Crab and Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
We love the big chain's mushrooms and while this recipe isn't quite the same, it is a good sub. I agree with other reviews to duplicate the big chain you need diced red pepper and scampi sauce. We all enjoyed these though . I did add some melted butter with some garlic powder whisked in to the top of these about 1/2 way through baking time. I would make these again but will cut back on the amount of croutons next time.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Added these to my cookies trays this year after all the wonderful recommendations over on the recipe exchange board. Kept dough in fridge over night and it was indeed sticky to work with but I coated my hands in powdered sugar and that worked wonders. Have to admit after all that I was worried how well they would go over but they went over GREAT! Hubby is not a big sweet eater but even he was raving over these. He took a plate of them to work and everyone agreed they were a hit. Will make again. Thanks for the recipe! Edit: Made this again for 2010 Christmas and found some great advice from another reviewer: MS said to coat the balls in regular sugar to help the powdered sugar stick---worked like a charm!!!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
These turned out great! I did add almond extract because I wouldn't make sugar cookies without it. These puffed up nicely and were easy to decorate. This will be my "go to" sugar cookies recipe from now on.

Peppermint Drops

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
I'm always looking for a new addition to my cookie trays and this one is it! I love to incorporate peppermint into my baking and candy making but usually just stick with the candy cane fudge so I'm thrilled to be able to use it in a cookie. And these were really good and easy to make. And all my "samplers' were trying to get their hands on more. I did rolll some in green/red sugar as other suggested to add some extra "ta-da". Thanks for the recipe which I'll be making year after year.

Ooey Gooey Chicken Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Really good. Really simple. Really Tasty! My family loved this. I also adapted it a few nights later, adding fresh garlic, and we ate the chicken mix on top of wide egg noodles. We'll make this again and again.

Easy Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Certainly the easiest I've ever made. And my family gobbled it up. I made as is but I added mushrooms to it because I love them in my stuffing. It baked up nicely with a bit of crunch around the edges and top which I like. I did not add any extra broth. The one thing I will not do next time I make it is add the melted butter. I didn't think it was needed and to me the taste of the butter was too overwhelming.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
I had such high hopes for this after reading the rave review but taste is subjective. We did not care for the cinnamon. But I can't fault the recipe for our tastebuds. I followed as is and I'm rating 4 stars because it gave me some great ideas that with a few changes I will make it again. We loved the potatoes which I doubled as many reviewers suggested.

Scotcharoos

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Like many others, I've been making these for years. They are always a huge hit. I can't go to a potluck or picnic without them. I add the peanut butter as soon as the syrup and sugar start boiling, remove the pan from the heat and incorporate the PB well and keep stirring as you remove it from the heat! Have your cereal measured and ready, add slowly and gently. When you turn it over into the cake pan, press the cereal/slurry mixture firmly down and nice and smooth. I like to add more butterscotch chips than chocolate because they give that frosting a nice kick. Yum. Be forewarned: Once you start eating you won't stop!
