Cannoli Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
Let me tell you something....I think the kids loved this almost as much as the adults. My friends 5 and 6 year olds loved the fact they could dip little Nilla cookies into this sweet dip. They thought it was the greatest thing. And the adults thought it was equally as clever and yummy. Its a winner!

Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Toasted Marshmallow Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
Really good, even though omitted the marshmallow frosting and used a caramel drizzle type frosting. I used canned yams like another reviewer did, and I got the ones in syrup by accident, so I drained the syrup and washed any residue off the yams. Also, ran out of muffin liners so just sprayed the pan with cooking spray, no problems with sticking. I will definitely make again.

Candy'D Sweet Potato Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
I'm rating just the frosting on this one. I will try the cupcakes soon. I like the frosting, but I will tell you it is very sweet at fist. Let the frosting and cakes cool completely or it will be overwhelmingly sweet. Also, you can use salted butter if you have no salt butter.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
Not liking this. The first thing I found wrong was the ratio of wet to dry ingredients. I was so frustrated I watched a video on here on how to make pumpkin pancakes, which shouldn't be hard but I am not a breakfast cook. The video states a CUP of pumpkin not an entire can, every other ingredient and measurement was the same. When there are too many wet ingredients it tastes raw and undercooked. Too many dry and it didn't cook right. I did not like the spices, too little pumpkin flavor and too much allspice. I will experiment with the ingredients and read through more reviews because the concept of pumpkin pancakes sounds yummy.

Orange Baked Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
I made this both the way as written and then with my modifications. As written it is good, not great and as another reviewer stated, the orange is overpowering and they were slightly under cooked. But nontheless I wanted to try it again my way as it had potential. First I baked the squashes at 400 for 45 minutes face down and brushed with a smidge of olive oil around the edges. Second I halved the orange concentrate and upped the butter by a tablespoon. Also added a 1/2 teaspoon more of brown sugar. And added chopped peeled empire apples to the centers (another reviewer had suggested that). Cooked for another 20 minutes and done. The apples will not be soft or like the consistency of apple pie apples but they add something.

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
Flavor was great. Cream filling excellent and the texture of the puffs were great. I loved them and I will definitely be making again....why the 3 star rating, I took other reviewers advice and poked holes into the sides of the puffs 2 minutes before they were done with wooden skewers and they did not deflate. Out of curiosity I left one puff alone with no holes and it deflated. That was my only casualty but don't worry it did not get wasted, one must test before serving to make sure they are really good lol. The writer should include those instructions which is why I only gave 3 stars.

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
Yummm. I loved this....I used fat free cool whip and didn't have pumpkin pie spice so I used apple pie spice and added a little more ginger and cinnamon to taste. Great idea!

Reuben Sandwich I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
I liked it, I liked all ingredients but the kraut, or maybe because it was the supermarket brand canned stuff. I am 37 years old and never had sauerkraut, my hubby had and likes "Rachels" so I tried it....he said it was just ok, he thought it was the type of kraut too. But all other ingredients were good, I ate the other 1/2 of mine without the kraut and liked it. Maybe its just me, is there a brand of kraut I should use instead of the other stuff?

Spiced Maple Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
I did not like this recipe. Mine came out burnt and sticky. My pan was coated in butter, had to clean 2x because of all the butter. Not sure if its too much butter, the cook time or the sugar but mine were inedible. And I really wanted pumpkin seeds since I haven't had them since I was a kid. I will not make this again.

Roast Beef and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
So heres the deal....I don't own a crock pot, because my hubby hates them he thinks the house is going to burn down and food comes out mushy. So I had to improvise because the ingredients looked good. I cooked at 350 for 2 hours in the oven with all ingredients and added fresh onion and garlic and used 1/2 of the onion soup mix as a rub. What I will do differently is add the soup and broth 3/4 to half way through because my roast came out well done on the bottom and med rare on the top, which kind of worked out for us because he likes well done and I like rare. We'll see next time, will definitely make again.

North Italian Meat Sauce (Ragu Bolognese)

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2013
I liked this, I wasn't in love with it though. I make my own bolognese but I wanted to see what someone elses tasted like and this got good reviews. First off I did not use the chicken livers, nor will I ever as I don't like them. Secondly I couldn't resist not using garlic, I added garlic powder to the meat while cooking. I used deli prosciutto and added alittle pepperoni. What I liked was the creaminess of this sauce and celery and wine, and nutmeg, my sauce has none of those things. What I think I may do is incorporate those into my sauce, but this is a good weeknight meal that dosen't require an entire day of cooking. I prep in the morning and my hubby finishes off the cooking at night since we have different schedules.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
I really like this but I would omit the celery the next time. I have never had celery in my chili before and I think it belongs in soup not chili. I also added an entire bottle of Bud beer, and cut back the chile pepper too because I like my taste buds.

Mushroom, Leek, Chicken Sausage and Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
Great recipe. I changed nothing except for the type of sausage (I used Aidells Italian), and I am usually not a shroom fan but they add an earthy flavor thats pretty good.

Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
These were good but not what I wanted for pasta and meatballs. I like a more traditional meatball and I let the sauce make the flavor. The red pepper flakes threw my taste buds off. I have to say that these are good on their own or in a sandwich. They are alittle loose for my liking too, I like them more dense.
