Would give it 10 stars if I could. These bars are AMAAAZING! They were eaten all up at our Christmas party and everyone was saying how yummy they were. Thanks for the recipe!

Pie Crust Treats

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
I made these for my kids tonight with leftover pie crust. I rolled the crust REALLY thin into 1 big circle. Then spread with a super light layer of butter. Covered with cinnamon/sugar and baked for about 20 minutes at 350 to get it nice and crispy. I cut into pieces and then we drizzled them with honey before gobbling them up. Mmmmm!!

Roasted Okra

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
This is a keeper, for sure! Very simple and healthy. I love fried okra and was looking for a more healthy way to enjoy it. This fits the bill nicely. Thank you!

Down Home Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
We made these for a 4th of July party. Everyone seemed to like them. I'm not big on baked beans but I liked them and even had seconds. As other posters had recommended, we reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. It seemed to work great.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
FANTASTIC!! I followed this recipe exactly with the exception of brushing the loaves with the egg white and not yolk just prior to baking. My family devoured this at dinner. GONE!! This will be great for dinners, sandwiches and perhaps french bread pizza... yum! Nice chewy crust outside but soft inside.

Sweet Potato Cranberry Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I made this exactly as it is written. I thought that this was very delicious and festive. So different from the traditional, sugary, sweet potato goop that my husband prefers. He liked it but prefers sugary goop. I loved it and am writing the review so I can give it the rating. If I have to cook sweet potatoes next time then this is what he is getting. It's healthier for him.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
This is a very simple, hearty, comfort-type of soup. We have made this several times. The only change we make is using ham insead of bacon. It is an excellent soup for using leftover holiday ham. Otherwise, we use the exact recipe and it is simply delicious!!

Hot Onion Dip

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
This is the best hot dip we have ever had. We make it exactly as it is written. No changes at all. We serve it with Frito's scoops. Our friends rave about it and always request it for parties. No one can keep their hands out of the serving dish...It's addictive.

Angel Hair Pasta with Lemon and Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This was very simple comfort-type food that was quick to make. The family seemed to love it. The only thing I changed is that I cooked a box of angel hair pasta instead of using the recommended pasta (cheaper) and I marinated cut-up chicken breasts in mojo sauce and stir fried them in a skillet.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
OMG these were fantastic! I followed the recipe as it is written. Since all I have are glass baking dishes I lowered the oven temp to 325 and they were done in 45 minutes. I checked them with a toothpick a couple of times starting at 30 minutes into cooking time until they were done. Because these are such chocolatey, fudgey, gooeyness I am certain that the toothpick will NEVER come out clean until they are burnt. I had lined my pan with parchment and when it came out of the oven I let it cool for about 15 minutes. Then I removed the brownies from the pan and let them sit about another 15 minutes. Then I cut them into squares. These are very rich & fudgey! These are my new brownie recipe. :-)

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
FANTASTIC stuffing! I made a couple of changes based on what I had on hand. I used sourdough bread, fresh herbs, chicken stock, and omitted the liver. Based on other reviews I added a little extra stock for moisture. Someone else recommended adding an egg if not cooking it in the turkey. I may try that next time just to hold the ingredients together better. Otherwise, the flavor was phenominal and others asked for the recipe.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
This was a nice sauce. We added a little extra basil and 1 teaspoon of sugar as others have suggested. We will use this sauce again next time.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I set out to follow this recipe exactly but ending up modifying a little as I went along. First, I left my chicken breasts whole. I thought they would be more tender that way. I used reduced fat cream cheese and 98% fat free cream of chicken soup in order to make this healthier. I placed all ingredients in slow cooker and set on low for 5 hours. The slow cooker then went to "warm" setting until I got home 2 hours afterwards. I decided that I would cut up the chicken before adding the cheese and soup. The chicken was so tender that it just fell apart. VERY yummy! Yes, I had to taste a pinch before adding other stuff. :-) I added soup and cream cheese and cooked on high for about 20 minutes until it was heated through and mixed smoothly. I used NO yolks noodles and just mixed them into the pot of chicken when they were done cooking and had been drained well. We tasted it and decided that adding some peas would give some vegetable and natural sweetness. It reminded me of a tuna noodle casserole when it was completed. Anyway, it turned out delicious! We will definitely be adding this to our meal rotation!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
Probably the most fantastic muffin I have ever put in my mouth!! Following other suggestions I added 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, and 3/4 tsp. cinnamon to the muffin batter. I also used 1/2 c. white sugar and 1/4 c. brown instead of 3/4 white sugar. In the crumb topping I increased the cinnamon to 1/4 tsp. I stayed with the melted butter in the batter despite others changing it to oil. I think folks are underestimating the flavor that the butter lends to the muffin. Not to mention that they are VERY moist. Thank you for this recipe Ms. Kreft... I will be using this for now on!! :-)

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I made this for the first time tonight. To make it healthier I used 98% fat free cream of chicken soup. At another reviewer's suggestion I decided to roll out the biscuit dough (Pillsbury Grands Jr, Flaky) and cut into 1/2 inch strips. After I added the 1st package of dough the sauce was too thick to take anymore. So, I left it at 1 can and was glad that I did. I ended up adding about 1/2 of chicken broth to thin the sauce a tad bit. I decided to add some frozen mixed veggies (beans, corn, carrots) for some added nutrition. After reading other's thoughts on doing so I decided the best way would be to cook them on the stove, drain all water off very well and then mix into slow cooker JUST before serving. This turned out to be GREAT! Excellent flavor and all of my picky little eaters at it!! Woo HOO!! This will definitely be put into the meal rotation! Thank you for the recipe.

Apple Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
I followed this recipe exactly as it is. I made these for a teacher gift. My husband and I thought that they were pretty good. However, my 2 boys just ate the struesel topping off and left the rest of the muffin. They said that the apple was weird combined with the pumpkin. They preferred plain pumpkin muffins. Oh well. I didn't make it for them anyway! :-)

Spring Omelet

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
Fantastic idea for omelet. I always use 3/4 cup of egg whites and 1 large egg whisked together. I left out the milk and Parmesan cheese. I used baby bella mushrooms and it had excellent flavor!!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
At first I made this exactly as it is written. WAY to orangey & bitter!! I tried to fix it by adding cointreau. Booze makes anything better, right? No. Still too orangey. Maybe consider 1/2 juice & 1/2 water as previous posters have suggested? I'll try to find another recipe.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
The overall idea of this recipe was excellent and my family will eat it. Hooorrayy!! I made some changes to make it healthier for my family. I also incorporated suggestions from other reviewers. I lightly browned chicken in some olive oil for a couple of minutes. Removed the chicken to a plate; added 3t garlic, 1/4 onion & mushrooms to chicken pan to saute in chicken juices until onion was translucent. Added a bag of fresh spinach to the pan and cooked until just wilted. In a separate bowl I combined skim milk, parm. cheese & Campbells heart healthy cream of mushroom soup. Then I mixed sauce into spinach. I layered a little sauce in the bottom of an 8x8 pan, placed chicken on top and then poured the rest of the spinach sauce on top. I sprinkled approx 1/3 cup of bacon bits and 1 Cup of Mozzarellla cheese on top. Baked at 400 for approx 40 minutes. Personally, I use a meat thermometer and removed from oven when it reached 165 degrees. I had to lightly cover with foil the last 10 minutes to keep cheese from over-browning. I accidentally left out the italian seasoning and purposefully left out the lemon juice. It was a GREAT dinner! Thank you!
