Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
Loved this recipe! I halved the cream cheese & butter (softened to room temperature), doubled the vanilla and used the recommended amount of sugar. It turned out tasty, and was just the right consistency. Will use again.

Perfect Baked Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
Halved the oil and doubled all seasonings except for cinnamon. Mixed everything up in a ziploc bag to coat the chicken, let it marinate for an hour, then baked it. I used pounded out chicken breasts, so I cut about 20-25 minutes off the bake time...turned out delicious! :)

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
I usually half the amount of salt called for & use only about 3/4C milk, but otherwise make these biscuites exactly as directed. Like Mary Poppins, they're "practically perfect in every way!" :)

The Best Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
I usually double all ingredients except for the olive oil, marinate for 1-4 hours (depending on how far ahead I've planned! lol) and then, while the steaks are cooking, boil the leftover marinade with about 1 tsp. cornstarch to make a delicious sauce to put on top of the grilled meat! Mmmm.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
I've tried several slow cooker pot roast recipes & this one's been my husband's & my favorite! My roast was 3.5 lbs., so I used 1.5 packages of each of the dry mixes called for and used about 1 & 1/4C water. Cooked about 6 hours on low & it turned out amazing - perfectly moist, perfectly seasoned! Pretty sure this'll be my go-to for pot roasts from now on.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
We love these! Very easy, very versatile! I use the seamless crescent dough, only 1.5 packages of cream cheese and 2/3C sugar, which makes plenty of filling that's perfectly sweetened. Our favorite version of these is to lay down the cream cheese layer, then add a layer of the Blueberry Breakfast Sauce (from this site) before placing the other roll of crescent dough on top. Also, I only use 1/4 melted butter for the topping. Amazing!

Creamy Chipotle Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
Left out the butter, used garlic salt on the chicken, and added the minced garlic directly into the sauce. Only used 2 minced chipotle peppers, and it was plenty spicy! I think it would've been way too hot if I'd added a third pepper. As written, this recipe makes enough sauce for 5-6 chicken breasts. I served over plain white rice mixed with yellow corn - in a word, delicious!

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
Used butter-flavored shortening & added about a 1/4C milk, but other than that, left the recipe as is. Batter WILL be thick, so you'll have to spoon (rather than pour) the mixture into the baking dish. Also, took more like 35 minutes for mine to finish baking. Delicious, especially with a glass of cold milk! :)

Blueberry Breakfast Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
Love! I've made this several times now using all different kinds of berries - blueberries, raspberries, strawberries...and it never fails to turn out beautiful and delicious! The -only- change I make is to only use half the sugar called for...it's enough to take the tartness out, without making the sauce overly sweet. :)

Orange-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
Tasty! Added an extra tablespoon of soy sauce & subbed orange juice for the marmalade, so I added an extra teaspoon of cornstarch to thicken sauce. As they were thick, bone-in chops, I -did- have to cook them for the entire 40 minutes, turning them once during baking.

Baked Penne

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
Delicious! Subbed italian sausage for the ground beef & mixed all the cooking creme into the sauce, then topped with remaining mozzarella. Also, I baked it uncovered - there isn't really any need to cover if the pasta's freshly cooked and the sauce is already hot.

BBQ Chicken Calzones

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Made only a few minor changes, based on personal preferences: Left out cilantro, halved the amount of cheese & added about 1/3C more bbq sauce. Also, the crust was done perfectly after 16 minutes...I think 25 min would have been way too long. Dipped them in ranch dressing and Oh. My. Goodness. Absolutely amazing! My husband and I loved them; I'm betting you will, too!

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Had a 4 lb pork loin, so I doubled the recipe. Added 1/3C honey, 2 cloves minced garlic & some minced green onion. After piercing meat all over with a fork, I marinated it for about 6 hours. Baked (with some sliced baby carrots) at 350 for 1 hour and 45 minutes. The meat was tender & the flavor was delicious! After baking, I mixed a cornstarch roux in with the leftover liquid...made a delicious sauce for the meat, carrots & mashed potatoes!

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Made this for Christmas breakfast & I was NOT disappointed! It was just my husband and I, so I halved the recipe. I made a couple of minor modifications to suit our tastes. 1. I seasoned the buttered potatoes with a few dashes each of salt, black pepper & sage. 2. I minced up some green onion and cooked it in with the sausage. 3. Added two extra eggs, since I was working with large and not the jumbo ones the recipe calls for. Will use this recipe again and won't wait for Christmas time to do it!

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Lined the bottom & sides of a greased 9x9 baking dish with the crescent rolls. Used about half the sour cream called for (I think 16 oz would have overwhelmed the other flavors), left off the chips entirely (because I didn't have them) and added in a can of chili beans to the meat mixture. Topped it off with extra cheese and a bit of ground chili pepper for color & a little kick. Served with salsa & garnished with lettuce and black olives. Thanks for a versatile recipe!

Pumpkin Roll I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I subbed pumpkin pie spice for all the other spices (although I did add in a bit more cinnamon) and just used a dash or two of salt. Also, I mixed the nuts in with the cream cheese filling and when I rolled it, I used waxed paper. This was my first attempt, and it didn't turn out very pretty but, WOW! It tasted amazing. Thanks for the recipe!

Three Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Used this one to make jumbo stuffed shells. I added a few more spices in the cheese mixture than were called for, and I also cooked 1 lb. of italian sausage to mix in - used half in the cheese, half in the sauce. OH MY! It was absolutely amazing. Thanks for a great basic recipe!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Halved the recipe, but made it as stated. Consistency was perfect and the basic flavor was pretty good, although I did feel as though it needed a little something extra - adding more garlic & a few more spices perked it up quite nicely. Overall, a good recipe!

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Except for adding about 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder to the dough, I made these exactly as written. My husband's first word after tasting one was, "Wow!" Must be on to something with these - thanks for a great recipe!
