Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
I made these for Easter this year. It was delicious. I felt it needed a little kick to suit my taste and knowing how much hubby likes it too I added some prepared Horseradish. The end result was supperb and husband raved about them.

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
It was simple and easy to make. It has the texture of a coffee cake or something like it. It was very good served warm with your morning coffee. The cranberries were tart so it has that sweet/tart contrast. Overall a 3 1/2 star rating based on how easy it is to make and overall taste. Two days later it is still here though. Other pies/ desserts are long gone!

Rosenmunnar

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
These were very easy to make and based on a previous review I put the dough in the fridge for a while and when I got it out it was too hard to work with so I just gave it a few minutes and voila! I used Red Raspberry Jam. Not only was the taste divine but the red was great for Christmas! The only thing I may try next time is to make the dough a little sweeter and maybe put 1/4 tsp. of vanilla as well.

Out of this World Pie

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
I took this pie to a potluck at work and it was a huge hit. I used the Graham cracker crust instead. I have since then made it again using strawberry Jell-o, and Lucky Leaf berry filling instead of cherry. I have decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup and it is still plenty sweet. This is better if you let it sit for 6 + hours to allow it time to set.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
We liked these but it didn't wow us. They were ok. Not sure if different variations of jams or different brand might make a difference.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
We loved it! You have to try it. It couldn't be easier or faster to put together. I used about 6 large cloves of garlic and increased the Olive Oil to 1/3 cup. Heated in the microwave for about 1-1 1/2 minutes. I doubled the amount of bread crumbs and Parmesan due to using 6 chicken breasts. The only thing I will be doing different next time is to add salt and maybe more seasoning if m using plain bread crumbs again but at some point I'll try Italian bread crumbs. The house smelled amazing. Great with Pasta or a mix Rice/Orzo.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
This one is a keeper! Delicious! I doubled the sauce. Used Julienned Carrots, sliced water chestnuts, and blanched snow peas. I'm giving it 5 stars and it is not even waiting until tomorrow for the flavors to infuse more. Can't wait to try it then. Thank you for sharing this recipe ohines.

Southwestern Rice

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
So good! I double the recipe. I first had the oill, added onions, garlic, green peppers and the rice. Let it cook for a couple of minutes and only then added the spices, a little extra actually and added salt. I believe that made the taste stand out so much more. I used a can of zesty corn medley even though I had frozen corn. It was spicy but tasty. Beautiful colors.

Texas Caviar I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
I used mixed color bell peppers (red, orange, yellow and green) since I was also using them for Fajitas and had bought the mixed peppers. That with the other colors made it beautiful. As always I used some salt, a little cajun spice and a dash of hot sauce because the jalapenos alone at first didn't seem to make it hot enough. Well, good thing we like it hot. As it sat the next couple of days in the fridge it got even better and hotter. So good. I'd come home from work and just have some with chips! A real treat!

Rich Chocolate Truffle Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
The pie set beautifully but it was very sweet and rich. Served for a large group I can see every last morsel being gone but not for us.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
If I make this again and use chicken thighs I'll revise my review. However, I used chicken breast and overall the dish tasted bland to me. I used a generous amount of all the spices and then some. The potatoes tasted great but my boneless, skinless chicken breast....not so much. I'm trying to make healthier dishes. I did put the chicken about 30 minutes later. It wasn't dry... just lacked in flavor still.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
This is an amazing recipe! I first tried to make it in my bread machine. Somehow it wasn't mixing properly once I added the additional 4 cups of flour so I decided to go ahead and do it by hand. It rose beautifully and it was so light and wonderful. I made it as written and wouldn't change a thing. The taste was great too. Thanks Marilyn!

Ultimate Party Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I made my own meatballs using 2 lbs. ground beef, 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, 2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs, 2 extra large eggs, salt, pepper, and ground dry parsley. I just incorporate all of it and make balls, spray a cookie tray with Pam and bake at 325 for about 25 minutes, put all in my slow cooker and add this amazing sauce, doubled off course. So good!

Rice with Almonds and Raisins

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
I really liked this recipe. I love just about most rice dishes but love those that have more flavor and this one delivers that. The only change I made (I just couldn't help myself) is that I added about 3 cloves of crushed garlic and saute that with the onions since that is what I do with my rice. It was just natural to me. The kids were not a big fan but I was.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
Very good. This uses less buttermilk, cornmeal and more flour than my regular recipe but we love sweet cornbread and this made hubby happy too. I tell everyone who hasn't tried yet that they are missing out on a great thing if they haven't made cornbread on a cast iron skillet yet. It forms a great crust at the bottom and it is heaven. If you do, melt some of the butter in your skillet in the oven, after melted, carefully remove skillet and turn to coat well before adding the butter.

Plain Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
My youngest daughter wanted to make these and I helped her out. She only made a slight mistake and didn't stir as often as she should have. The bauble that forms is still a mystery to me. Not sure why it did. But over all we enjoyed them.

Passion Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
This is a rich but excellent dessert. Three things that I love wrapped into one delicious bar. The combination of oatmeal, peanut butter and chocolate chips was great. Took to work to share and was well received and as usual... requests for the recipe. I would suggest to use a fresh can of Sweetened condensed milk because it can get even thicker if you have had it a while. I also added about 1/2 tsp. vanilla to the milk/peanut butter mix. I also used my fingers to help spread it on top of the pressed mix. Everyone raved and that is why it gets a 5 star. Not just the consensus of one or a few. Thanks for sharing this recipe Sue!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Although my kids like these, I personally thought they were very bland. I added an extra 1/2 spoon of cinnamon, instead of a pinch I used 1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg, but the end result was still not what I'd like. I didn't have walnuts so I didn't use any. They more cake like, as some have mentioned.
