Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2005
So easy and addictive! I used a 9x13" non-stick pan and used only 3/4 cup light brown sugar and 3/4 cup butter. I tried 1/2 cup each, but it didn't create enough of the toffee layer. After spreading the chocolate chips I let it harden at room temperature. It takes about 2 hours and then I use a metal spatula to cut the bars. I tried putting them in the fridge the first time I made them, but when I started cutting them, the chocolate layer separated from the toffee layer. Then when I'm done cutting them, then I put them in the fridge. Thanks for the recipe!

Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Very pretty dessert. I used a jumbo muffin pan and used the pineapple rings. If you do the same, you will also need a 8 oz. can of pineapple rings. There weren't enough pineapple rings in the 20 oz. can for 14 jumbo muffins. I used pineapple cake mix and the juice from the canned pineapple rings. There wasn't enough juice from the pineapple rings so I used water to make up the difference.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I went back and forth about trying these. Some reviews were thumbs up and some thumbs down. But, since it was only 3 ingredients, why not. My family is glad I made them. I followed a lot of the suggestions of other reviewers. After I baked the cake (Red Velvet), I let it cool for about 5 minutes. Then I used a fork to run through the cake and break it up into crumbs. I then transferred the crumbs to a bowl and added the can of frosting (cream cheese). It made a gooey mix. I then made the cake balls with my Pampered Chef large scoop and put them in the freezer for about an hour. I used Candiquik - chocolate candy coating (16 oz.), found at Walmart. You need it all, not just 3 oz. I found that the chocolate set real fast, maybe because the balls are cold. So if you are using sprinkles, have them ready. My family has requested them again, so I'll be making some more soon. Thanks for the recipe! Kids especially love them!

Joanne's Super Hero Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
This is a nice spring/summer recipe. Made it the night before and had it for dinner the next day. I used two 8 oz. oval loaves of crusty bread, 2 clove of garlic and not quite all the sandwich meat it called for. I took another reviewers advice and used my food processor to pulse all the ingredients in step 1. Family loved it. Thanks for the recipe.

Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
I liked tat2whttrsh's idea of a peppermint blossom cookie. I needed something for a cookie exchange and these were really good. For a blossom cookie I omitted the candy canes and added a few drops of peppermint extract. I rolled the dough into a 1 inch ball and cooked for about 10 minutes. The cookies will start to crack just a little when they are done. When they came out, I put a Hershey's Candy Cane Kiss in the center of each. The kiss melted and pooled in the center of the cookie. UPDATE: When the kiss melts I let my kids take a toothpick and swirl it around. It's fun and looks pretty.

Lauren's Sugar and Spice Black Pepper Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I too doubled the recipe because I used Krusteaz brand Cinnamon Crumb Cake mix. When they cool, they become very thin, but crispy and delicious! I was surprised by how much I liked the hint of black pepper. What an interesting cookie. I will be making again!

Killer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Really good cheesecake! I almost didn't try it because it seemed too easy to be true. I'm glad I did! I like that you bake it in a 9x13 inch pan. I used 2 cups graham cracker crumbs instead of crushing them myself. I melted the 1/2 cup butter to make it easier. I don't own a food processor so I used my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. It worked just fine. There were a few lumps in the cheesecake mixture but after baking they were gone. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet Bacon Crackers

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
This is such a fast appetizer to make! I was scared at first to use 1 tsp. of brown sugar. It seemed to much, but you need it to glaze the bacon and cracker. I baked mine a little longer and there were still some crackers with brown sugar that hadn't melted, so I broiled them at the end for just a few seconds and it worked perfect. Everyone loved them!

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
My husband and I think these taste and look like restaurant quality burritos. I left out the tomato soup, added a 1/2 cup of salsa instead, and baked them at 350 for 20 minutes. I wasn't sure about the chili w/o beans, but it was good. They were very filling! Thanks for the recipe!

Double Chocolate Sprinkle Cookies

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Get your cup of milk ready! This is a very chocolaty cookie. I halved the recipe, used my Pampered Chef large scoop and it still made a lot of cookies. I would have been baking all day if I didn't half the recipe. I also left out the nuts because the kids don't like them. The first sentence in the directions should probably say 'cream the butter and sugars'(plural). I almost forgot to put in the brown sugar because it says 'sugar'. Overall a good cookie. :)

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
I used white baking potatoes and they turned out great! Loved that they stayed hot even after I turned off the crock pot. Thanks for the recipe. :)

Watergate Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I always think of this cake around St. Patrick's Day. It's hard to tell from the picture but it's a light green from the pistachio pudding. I omit the walnuts and the frosting and add mini chocolate chips. Also, I only use the amount of oil that is called for on the back of the cake mix box. One cup of oil would have been way too much. Quick, easy and very moist.

Oven Baked Zucchini Fries

Reviewed: May 16, 2013
I did a few things differently. It was faster for me to just slice the zucchini (unpeeled). I also used 2 Tbsp. of milk and 1 egg white mixed together, instead of the butter. Near the end of the cooking time, I set the oven to broil to crisp them up. I also, flipped them once half way through baking. Very good!

Lemon Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
A lemon lover's dream. I used 2/3 cup of lemon juice not a 1/2 cup. No other changes. After it cooled, I used a plastic knife to cut them. Thanks for the recipe!

Orange Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I made this cake today to test it before taking to a family reunion. I passed it out to neighbors to get a vote and everyone loved it. I used a different recipe for the frosting (Golden Orange Frosting) from this site. Some of us thought the frosting was a little too sugary others loved the frosting. UPDATE: Altered the recipe. Baked in 9x13 pan and used chocolate cake mix. Prepared cake mix according to directions on box. Put a layer of chocolate chips over the batter, about 1.5 cups. Then made the crunchy mix, step 1, and sprinkled over the chocolate chips. Patted down with a spoon and baked for 35-40 minutes. Used Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting, from this site, minus the coconut part. Oh so rich! Get your milk ready! Will make again!!

Cherry-Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
I can see why this has 5 stars! It is so quick and tastes awesome! I did adjust the temperature to 375 and baked for about 45 minutes. 425 is way too hot and will burn the crust. Which happened the first time I baked it. Second time at 375 was perfect. Thanks for submitting!

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Nice change from the typical breakfast casserole. Lots of chopping and prepping but worth it. Very tasty! Took other reviewers advice and assembled the night before and put in the fridge. Then this morning cooked it at 350 for about 50-55 minutes. I used a 15x10 pan for the brunch I was going to and had enough to also fill a pie plate to make later. I also used only 1/4 cup oil not 1/3. Remember to drain your veggies before adding to the mixture.

Good Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
These are good! Very buttery flavor. This recipe makes a lot more than 24 small cookies! I made at least 24 very big cookies. I used my pampered chef large scoop. Also, the recipe calls for salt but doesn't say when to put it in. I added it with butter/oil step and I also added the vanilla at this step NOT at the end. The recipe says to stir in the oatmeal, coconut, cereal and flour. That seems kind of odd so I added the flour after the oil/butter, etc was mixed NOT at the end. Then I stirred in the oatmeal, coconut and cereal. My husband thinks I should add some white chocolate chips. Maybe.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I love when I can find a recipe so easy and equally delicious! It's a great recipe to serve company. I cooked a 2.7 lb. roast for 1.5 hours at 350. I marinated it for 2 hours. It was not over powering with the Balsamic Vinegar. UPDATE: I recently made with boneless thick pork chops and it was just as good. I marinated them for about an hour and used my George Forman grill. EASY!
