Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2002
Incredible chocolate cake recipe!! This is so good! I used peanut butter chips as well as milk chocolate chips in mine and substituted water for the coffee liquour. I also made a glaze of the peanut butter and milk chocolate chips. It was great! I told a friend that it was good enough to make for Martha Stewart!!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2002
These are excellent peanut butter cookies! I added about 1/2 cup more peanut butter and a dash of vanilla. I also used chunky peanut butter and it added more crunchiness. Next time I am going to try it with milk chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. I agree 1 cup of oatmeal is not enough. I added an extra 1/2 cup but next time will increase it to 2 cups total. This is a keeper!

Cheesy Green Bean Casserole

This was great! A nice alternative to ordinary green bean casserole. Even my picky in-laws loved it. I omitted the velveeta and it was great. Good left over too! Its a keeper! Thanks!

Chili I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2003
This is great chili! There is absolutely nothing ordinary about this recipe- which is what made me want to try this. I love the fact that it is a blend of odd ingredients and not the usual bland, easy, safe route! I blended all the wet ingredients into a dutch oven and refrigerated it for 24 hours- giving it a chance to meld. Then I added the meat and let it simmer for 2 hours. I used 2 cans of kidney beans and 2 cans of pintos. Omitted the corriander (which was $5.00 a bottle) and cut the sugar in half like others suggested. I, too, added an extra tablespoon of chili powder (4 1/2 total). It was so good! I used low sodium broth and forgot the salt (!). It needed it. Next time I wont forget the salt! Try this recipe. You will be so proud of the results! It is a keeper!!

Easy Peach Crisp I

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2003
I tried this again- after a less-than-thrilling result the first time. I took the suggestion of another reviewer- I cut the butter into a yellow cake mix with a pastry cutter, added 1/2 cup of brown sugar and sprinkled the mixture over the peaches. I sprinkled a generous amount of cinnamon on the peaches first. This time it tunred out perfect! It still was sweet and could even get away with cutting the brown sugar back to 1/4 cup. Using the pastry cutter with the butter and cake mix made all the difference in the world. The crust was yummy and the filling was more solid- not a runny mess like the first one I made. A keeper!!

Baked Corn I

This is awesome! I made this along with pork ribs and cole slaw for my husband's birthday dinner and it was great! I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. It is a keeper!

Dry Rub for Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2003
Excellent! This was our first barbeque of the season- plus this was the first time I ever made pork ribs. My husband loves barbeque- of any kind and I wanted to make ribs for his birthday dinner. This was great! I put it on only about 2 hours before cooking- and the flavor was wonderful. He couldnt stop raving about how good it was. I used Bullseye bottled sauce for the final coating and it was awesome. I am pretty happy that my first outing with ribs turned out so good. It is the only recipe I will ever use! I made these along with cole slaw and the Baked Corn recipe on this website. Great birthday meal! Thank you!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2003
This is a great recipe. I have had this salad from a deli before, but it always lacked something. I made this for visiting relatives and they asked me to make it again the next day. I used red wine vinegar, instead of white wine vinegar. And, since we are watching our sugar intake, I used Splenda instead of the sugar. No one knew the difference. Even my brother- who can smell an artificial sweetener from a mile away- had no idea. It definitely needs to sit overnight for all the flavors to meld. Great recipe- I am glad to have it!

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2003
I made this last night and it was great! I used the anchovy paste, as others suggested, and also used pre-minced garlic from a jar, and mixed it all together in the blender. The only changes I would make- add more garlic and lemon juice. Maybe a tad bit more dijon. It had more of a mayo taste to it than I wanted. I think the combo of garlic and lemon is the key. Great recipe!

Dinah's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2003
This is a great recipe! If you like Olive Garden's stuffed mushrooms- you will like this. I only used 1 can of clams and omitted the green pepper. I would cut down on the butter, as others suggested- it doesnt need that much. One reviewer suggested crab meat- I may try that next time. Sounds good! These are wonderful!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2003
These are great cookies! I keep them in the freezer for my step-daughter's lunches and they are great after 15 seconds in the microwave. Warm like they are straight from the oven. I used milk chocolate chips and a ton of walnuts. I think I will stick to semi-sweet from now on. Packs more punch! Great recipe- it's a keeper!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2003
I thought this was good, but I could tell just by the ingredients that it was going to need some doctoring up. I added garlic powder, italian seasoning and lots of salt and pepper to the flour mixture. I cut back on the oil and butter- about 2 heaping tablespoons each. Plus, I sauteed crushed garlic in the oil and butter before adding the chicken. It turned out great. My stepdaughter loved it. I served it with angel hair pasta and broccoli. But I think I may add cream to it at the end, like one reviewer suggested, to make more 'gravy'. It needed more sauce for the pasta. All in all, this is great! (Edited 5/22/2010)

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2003
This is wonderful! I agree, it is a 'special' meatloaf and not for everday. I made it as the recipe states-- and its good, but I usually make just my ordinary Lipton Onion Soup Mix meatloaf with the ketchup and brown sugar on the bottom of the pan. Turns out the same. I love this and look forward to making it now that the weather is turning cool. A keeper!!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
This is a great recipe! I used yams instead of sweet potatoes- and it was wonderful. I bake my yams for about 35-40 minutes, instead of boiling. The skins peel off so much easier this way. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar throughout the entire recipe and it wasn't too sweet at all. This is very good left over. Heats up really nice. My husbands side of the family are not the adventuresome types. They arent open to anything 'new', but some tried this and loved it. Gasp!! I will make this for many years to come. Great recipe! Update 2013: I have been making this every year since I wrote this review and my husband now expects it at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I make a small one for just the two of us and it it so easy and soooo delicious. Great leftover too.

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2003
This is very good. I wasnt sure what to expect and I made this for company. Everyone- kids and adults- loved this. I followed the recipe to a 'T' and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top before cooking, as one reviewer suggested. Yummy!! I may try it with some walnuts mixed in next time. A keeper!!

New Year's Eve Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2003
It's not that it isnt good- it just wasnt what I thought it would be. If I were to make this again I would change a few things. First off- I would not cover it while cooking. It seemed more boiled than it was baked. I like my wings a little more candied. Plus- I would add half the amount of italian dressing than called for. The ingredients are complimentary- but the italian dressing overpowers the apricot/onion taste that I believe would be tasty.

Prime Rib

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2004
This is great! I made this on Christmas day and again New Years day. It is that good! Remember- 5 mins. per pound at 500 degrees. Use a thermomter for best results. I made a paste with the mustard- using minced garlic from a jar, and tons of Montreal Steak Seasonings (a favorite year round) and garlic salt. Very tasty! My husband hates roast beef- after a childhood full of bland, dry ones- and loves this. This is a keeper!!

Montreal Peppered Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2004
I have never made this recipe, but I can tell you this is great. I have used olive oil, minced garlic and Montreal Steak Seasoning on all steaks for many years, always with the very best results. I cant imagine a steak without Montreal Steak Seasoning.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2004
This is great! I made a few adjustments though- I added extra italian seasoning and browned the chicken breasts in olive oil and garlic instead of baking them. It sealed in the juices and made the chicken much more tender. I also used fresh baby spinich instead of canned. Fresher is always better. And I used a blend of parmesean, asagio and romano cheese. I think next time I am going to only use 1 cup of mozzerella instead of the 2 called for. I think it was too much. Made it really thick and not as gooey as I would have liked. My husband loved it. This is good stuff!

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2004
This is fabulous! Creamy, smooth and very tasty. Not too sweet, not too bitter. Excellent! I used this on the Best Foods Mayonnaise chocolate cake recipe. Good stuff! I will use this recipe from now on. FYI- I used Smuckers hot fudge, half-n-half instead of milk, margarine instead of butter, and butter flavored shortening.
