JIF® Buckeyes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
One note to mention is if they are super soft they leave a large hole in the top that you will need to pinch back together so I take a little bit out of the fridge at a time to keep them as firm as possible and I store them in the fridge.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I did as the others suggested and put the mixture in the fridge for a half hour. Also, added the green and red holiday cherries to the top (cut them in 1/2 horizontally). These are just like I remember growing up! Very addictive!

Puppy Chow I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
If you have tasted great puppy chow before there is a difference and I do agree with other reviewers it is the butter.

Pudding No-Bake Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
This recipe is a new staple for us! I love it! I did adjust the portions based on a few reviews and wanted to cut down on fat - I used 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup), 2/3 cup of sugar. They turned out so yummy, and not sure if the reduction in butter made them less gooey but mine sat fine. Not sure where they get 48 servings though, I made 24 rounded tablespoons and they turned out great! Thanks for sharing!

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Excellent. Just some small changes based on other reviewers. I added oregano, italian seasoning and garlic to the meatballs. I swapped ricotta cheese for the mayo and did not use the water for the sauce. I did toast the bread before hand and just spread the cheese mixture on each slice. Turned out super gooey and yummy! Thanks so much for sharing!

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
Excellent! Made it as stated (ingredients listed), only didn't add the chips on the top and only had colby jack cheese so I used that instead. One thing I didn't realize it til was too late was mixing them separately. I threw everything in the pot with the after I drained the pasta and it turned out great. Added peas too - kids loved it!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
This is a great staple banana bread recipe. I am playing around with different recipes and find that the ones that include sour cream are more moist and seems to taste more "bananany" - Adding chocolate chips or nuts helps this recipes add more taste.

Lemon Curd Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Good but seemed like there wasn't enough lemon curd so maybe I got the smaller jar. Next time will use to or find a larger one becuase it was mostly crust and a little bit of lemon. But super easy and yummy.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
Good - I added an additional 1 t of pumpkin spice to the mix and followed the others advise for the swapping of step 1 and 2. Overall I would say it tasted more like pumpkin pie than pumpkin cheesecake however, that didn't stop everyone from eating it all up.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Good and spicy! I only used one can of beans because it was all I had and I thought it was perfect. Three cans might be too much beans for our family. I forgot to add the cheese at the end and just added a dollop of sour cream to everyone's bowls! It was a great fall chili. thanks!

Cajun Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
Awesome! Not the healthiest recipe but oh so good! I did also the make your alfredo - it took about 10 minutes for everything to melt without burning so I made a note for next time to start that earlier. Will try reducing the amount of butter in that recipe too next time. Just as good as leftovers! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Strawberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
This was a great easy way to use up a bunch of strawberries that I had. Could be served warm for a breakfast treat or warm it up again and add some ice cream for a quick dessert! Very yummy. I did make a few small changes based on some of the reviews. I just omitted the butter in the batter and doubled the batter to have it fit in a 9x13 pan. I didn't measure the strawberries I just put a layer on the top. I also added 1t of almond extract to the batter before baking it and it turned out moist and yummy!

Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
Just for you people (like myself) who don't always read through the whole recipe before you start baking away - this requires a pot that can hold a minimum of 12 cups (between the flour, honey, sugar, eggs and zucchini). I ended up with a bunch of bowls that wouldn't fit the entire thing to the end. Since you are baking 3 loaves at once it gets hard to stir in the end so I used yet another bowl and threw it in my Kitchenaid. Maybe I am a weakling but then again that's what I bought that. So, can't say it never gets used :) The bread was done probably around 40-45 minutes, but I didn't take it out til the timer said at 50 - so note for next time. Also - even though there is honey and brown sugar this isn't a sweet bread. It's good just not sweet. So if you want some more sweetness in it I would replace it with regular sugar.

Mom's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
This is the best recipe I have found yet. I did take some of the readers advice and modified it a bit. I changed up'd some of the quantities to 2 c of noodles, 2 c of shredded cheddar, 1 t of salt and 1/2 t of pepper and 1 t of ground mustard. It was excellent! Thanks!

Twice-Cooked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
The shrimp was great - but the sauce was too strong for the shrimp. I am not sure if it was the orange marmalade or what but it was bitter and had a bad after taste. Just my opinion - I wanted something sweeter to compliment the light coconut taste. So I redid it and replaced with apricot jam, omitted the hot sauce, and reduced the dijon mustard in half and it was much better.
