Blueberry Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
SO happy to find this recipe! My aunt used to make this every time we came to visit and it was always something I looked forward to. This is also good with black cherry jello and sprinkled with chopped walnuts!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Excellent, fairly easy dinner on a below 30 degree night! To pre-cook the chicken, I brined & poached it in salted water with about 2 Tbsp. southwest seasoning. I'm almost glad that I brined it, because the chili itself was a tad underseasoned. I added a few tsps of salt to perk it up. Great heat level for my taste (I don't like too much) and the 4 of us finished off the pot for dinner with some corn bread. Will be making this again!

Boiled Water

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
I liked the recipe with 1 exception. I was not sure what to do while waiting for the water to start bubbling. Am I supposed to stay and watch the pot?

Turkey Tenderloins

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
Made this yesterday evening and the flavor was awesome! Definitely not too salty. I would say the previous commenter hasn't tasted a brine either - very salty, but doesn't oversalt the brined meat. This was wonderful. I served it with sauteed kale and mashed potatoes.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
This was a huge hit with my family! The only change I made was to sub nonfat, plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream. I also halved the recipe for a smaller bunch. We gobbled it up in no time! This is my new go-to banana bread recipe.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
I made these exactly to the recipe, but decreased size and got about 48 cookies. They were absolutely incredible and I love a one-bowl recipe! They were a huge hit with my family - perfectly chewy.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake I

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
This was such a great recipe! I did swap out applesauce for the oil, but with the looooong mixing time, it was still not too dense. It was just a little too sweet for my taste, so I will probably leave out the extra sugar next time. I even used reduced sugar yellow cake mix and it was still very sweet. Great recipe for brunch or dessert!

Fluffy White Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
So impressed with this recipe! I will never buy a container of frosting again. Now that I've tried this, they all taste artificial and grainy. This recipe gave me plenty of perfectly sweet, marshmallow creme-like frosting. It was too much to cover a 9x13 cake - definitely better suited for a layer cake, so I'd recommend cutting it in half for the pan I used. It looked lovely on the cake - bright white, fluffy and glossy. I will be using this recipe in the future.

Chocolate Puffed Wheat Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
I have tried this recipe twice now. I followed the directions to the letter. I let them cool completely the first time (2 hours) and they crumbled. 2nd time? Cooled 2 hours, cooled another hour in the fridge. Still crumbled. It made a decently tasty crumbly mess, but they were completely unsuccessful as a bar.

Orange Sunshine Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
I can't speak personally as I didn't get to eat any. It was wolfed down in minutes at a 4th of July cookout! Almost followed the recipe completely, but I accidentally got the 8oz container of Cool Whip. I was afraid I didn't have enough icing for 3 layers, but it worked wonderfully and wasn't too sweet! I will say the instructions aren't very clear when making the frosting. I learned the hard way. Don't make the pudding to fold into the whipped topping & pineapple. Just fold in the pudding mix. I had to end up with 1 batch of liquid icing to figure that out :)

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
This was an awesome recipe! I do think I may have used 8" pans so I had a lot of filling left over, but it was a hit - just enough coffee flavor and not overly sweet. I would love to make it more often, but mascarpone isn't cheap. May try subbing neufchatel next go around. Great recipe, though!

Pumpkin Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
I suppose I was expecting something more like a crumble or cake, but it was definitely like eating pumpkin pie with a really thick crust. I enjoyed the crumble on top, but it just felt like it was missing something. It might be better with spices other than cinnamon (and more of them!) and a thinner bottom layer. As written, we just thought it was alright.

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2013
Made a huge batch to take to a tailgate, and they turned out great! I ended up making about 7 cups with the full packet of ranch seasoning, but it was the perfect amount of seasoning. Easy and tasty.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
These were pretty good. It made 12 large muffins instead of 10(but I did use 3 large bananas). The first batch was eaten in a day by 5 people, so a 2nd batch was requested. The first time, I had crumb topping leftover.. even with 12 muffins. The 2nd time I used it all and the muffins had a wonderful, crusty top, though even with 12 muffins, it was still a bit too sweet. I'll probably use only half of the crumb mixture next time. I also added extra cinnamon to the batter on the 2nd batch and I got better reviews. They needed a little spice!
