Reindeer Poop

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
I made this candy for Christmas Eve and it was a big hit with my family. It tastes just like a Mr. Goodbar. It was very easy to prepare as you literally just throw everything into the crock pot and leave it for a couple hours. But be aware that this recipe makes A LOT of candy! I had two heaping plates full to bring with me at Christmas. Luckily everyone wanted to take some home.

One Bowl Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
This fudge turned out SO well! It literally took five minutes to make and then you just stick it in the fridge and forget about it for a few hours. Will definitely be making this again.

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
This quiche came out fabulous and was a big hit at Christmas. I skipped the onion and just added a little onion powder in for flavor. I definitely did NOT use a whole package of spinach either - about half the package was more than enough. It turned out great and was even better for breakfast!

Great Garlic Knots

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
So easy to make and a wonderful side dish! I threw these together quickly while making food for Christmas Eve and they were ready in no time. The pre-made breadstick dough made my life a thousand times easier!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
I brought these cookies to work with me at Christmas and they were a HUGE hit among my students and the other teachers. I iced them with an almond flavored icing recipe found on this site. They turned out nice and soft and even stayed that way after spending the night in the fridge (had other cookies on the platter that needed to stay cool). I would recommend chilling the dough in the fridge for AT LEAST 2 hours before rolling it out, it was not ready after only an hour.

Irish Potato Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
This wasn't too difficult to make, and the cake turned out just as it was supposed to, but I did not enjoy the flavor like I thought I would. Maybe it was the spices used but it did not taste how I expected it to. Like I said, it looked just like the picture and came out to a perfect texture, but it just didn't taste good :(

Italian Anisette Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
These cookies turned out great for Christmas. It was my first time making them but they were so easy to make and really enjoyable. Next time I think I will ease up on the anise for the icing because it was almost too strong of a flavor.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
this icing turned out really nice, and the almond flavor worked really well with sugar cookies. But if you are making a lot of cookies, I would make a LOT more of this icing, as this recipe does not yield a lot of icing. I would say if you want to make icing in different colors, make this amount for EACH color. I made about 4-5 dozen cookies to bring to work with me at Christmas and needed triple the amount of icing that I got from following this recipe.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
These cookies are SO addictive! I've had them before and needed to try making them myself for Thanksgiving. I followed the recipe exactly except I left out the cloves because they were SO expensive at the grocery store. It didn't matter because they turned out incredible. The icing was very strong so I might cut back on the vanilla next time but I can't wait to make them again!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This soda bread turned out wonderful. It was my first time making one. I followed the recipe exactly, but cooked it at 350 for about 50 minutes. It wasn't the sweetest bread and actually tasted more like a biscuit but it was SO good!

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This was a great soup! Did a very simple version of it - cubed chicken, gnocchi, and some chopped broccoli in chicken broth with some onion salt and pepper. The chicken was a little bland so I will have to season it better next time, but this was a very quick and easy dinner!

Chicken Puffs

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
These turned out pretty well. I made a lot of changes. I shredded 2 chicken breasts instead of cubing them and used 8 oz of onion & chive cream cheese. I didn't use any butter, but added a little bit of milk to the cream cheese to make it stirrable. I also added a little bit of garlic powder to the dough for flavor. They needed about 22-24 minutes to brown, and probably could've even stayed in longer. Overall they had an odd taste, but the flavor of the chicken was still noticeable, which is what I had hoped for. Overall, not great, but decent.

Ham and Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
Delicious! Made just one change - used a cup of shredded cheddar cheese and a little bit of mozzarella as a substitute for the swiss. I just wish I left the broccoli to thaw for a little longer because it didn't turn out very soft. This was my first time making quiche and overall it turned out great!

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
I LOVED this macaroni and cheese! Such a nice change from the typical boxed stuff and the three cheeses go together so nicely. I did make some changes - left out the ham, cayenne pepper, and used margarine instead of butter, but it was delicious none the less. The only thing that stinks is the heaviness of this dish. You always want to eat more but it leaves you feeling VERY full very quickly. But it's safe to say I will definitely be making this meal again.

Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
I didn't have any broccoli so I substituted with green beans, which were great. I wasn't a big fan of the sauce though. I thought the parmesan cheese flavor was too much, even after using only about 1/4 cup instead of 1/2. But I'm not a fan of parmesan to begin with. The meal itself was very easy and quick to prepare but I will definitely tweak the sauce next time.
