My family loves tuna macaroni salad but no one liked this at all.

Caramel Shortbread Turtle Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
These cookies are absolutely delicious!My caramel layer was a bit too gooey so I guess I didn't cook it long enough. Next time I will use a candy thermometer. I alwyas use a sheet of aluminum foil to line the bottom and sides of the pan when baking any type of bar cookies or brownies. After cooling in the pan for a bit I can lift the whole thing out foil and all, then let the cookies cool completely. They are much easier to cut and have a much neater appearance. Plus no messy pan to clean!

Chef John's Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
I mixed these up a couple days before Thanksgiving and froze them, right in the pan after the 2nd rise but prior to baking them. Took them out of the freezer to thaw then popped them in the oven the morning after Thanksgiving. They were perfect! Moist and light, just the right texture with lots of cinnamon flavor and just a hint of pumpkin. My tip, as with any yeast bread, don't overdo the flour and don't overwork the dough. You need just enough flour for dough to come together and only use enough when rolling them out so that they don't stick. The dough should be soft and pliable. The only thing I changed was the icing, used my own recipe for cream cheese icing and sprinkled chopped pecans on top instead of the pumpkin seeds. I will definitely be making these again.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
Just took the first batch of these out of the oven. Yum! They are light and airy and, although they have the appearance of a muffin, they definitely taste like a roll, NOT a muffin. I don't agree with other reviewers who said the measurements were off. I doubled the recipe and only had to add about 1/2 cup extra flour. As with any bread recipe, more or less flour may be necessary depending upon the humidity level. Do not over work the dough, stir it only until it comes together. It should be very sticky but not wet. Remember, you do not have to knead this dough. Adding too much flour and overworking the dough will cause the rolls to be dense. I used a greased serving spoon to drop the dough into the muffin cups. One tip, make sure you grease the muffin cups very well, even if using a non-stick pan.

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
If you enjoy Lo Mein, you will enjoy this. Next time I make it, however, I will use a little less ginger. It was a bit overpowering. The leftovers tasted even better cold the next day.

Crunchy Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I wasn't too sure about this, it didn't look very appetizing when I was getting ready to put it in the oven. The end result was delicious. My husband had the leftovers gone before the next day. I didn't have any cornflakes so topped it with french fried onions instead. I will be making this again and again.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
I must eat only gluten-free foods and all the pre-packaged taco seasoning mixes I could all contained wheat flour. I was thrilled to find this recipe and even more thrilled the first time I made tacos with it. Thank you so much for sharing!

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I made this to bring to a party and it was a hit, except that I erroneously bought extra-hot pepper sauce instead of regular. Needless to say it was quite hot. Some people could not eat it. Next time I am going to try using mild chicken wing sauce instead of pepper sauce so that more people can enjoy it.

Vanilla and Chocolate Delight

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
This is very similar to a dish I have been making for years, except that it is called Chocolate Lush and calls for walnuts instead of pecans. It can also be made with lemon pudding instead and topped with nuts. I recently made it with peanuts in the crust instead of pecans and topped it with chopped peanut butter cups. Yummy!

Caramel-Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
These were terrific. I followed the advice of others and put the Rolos in the freezer for awhile before using. The caramel didn't ooze out of a single cookie while baking. These have officially become part of my annual Christmas cookie repertoire.

Ricotta Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
These cookies were easy to make, however we found them to be quite bland and we didn't care for the texture. They did taste better after sitting for a day or 2. I would not make these again.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Tried these on a whim and they have become a new favorite. This will easily be the best cookie on my cookie tray this year. I did make a couple alterations after reading other reviews. I substitued 1/2 cup of butter flavored Crisco for 1/2 the butter and I added a tsp of orange extract. I also threw in about a cup of chocolate chips. I would recommend that you don't skip the icing, as others have suggested. I tried 1/2 a cookie without the icing and the other half with. Definitely better with the icing. Enjoy!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
Very tasty and easy to prepare. I've made this twice and it was good as written but the next time I decided to doctor it a bit. I made a roux after removing the chicken from the pan then I added 1/4 cup of white wine to deglaze the pan before adding the cream. This thickened the sauce nicely. I also added about a tsp of dried dill for more flavor.

Santa Fe Rice Salad

Very good. Next time I will try using orzo instead of rice.

German Chocolate Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
This tasted pretty good but was not very pretty to look at. Typically chocolate cake goes quickly in my house. I ended up throwing the last few slices away.

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
First, thanks so much to Sandy for sharing this receipe! It is the best chocolate cake I have ever baked and everyone I served it to said it was the best they had ever eaten. I don't know how anyone could give it less than 5 stars. I would give it more if I could. The cake is moist and chocolately and the frosting has just the right amount of sweetness. The only mistake I made was using only 2 9" pans because I didn't have 3. I should have scaled back the receipe when I did this because it caused a bit of spillover in the oven. I used Pam spray for baking and the cake didn't stick at all. Try it, you'll like it!

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I have been making the same macaroni salad recipe for years but decided to give this one a try. My son proclaimed it to be the best macaroni salad I ever made. I did cut back on the sugar to 1/4 cup but I also used sweet relish since I didn't have any dill. I think it would be good with the dill relish as well. I used mayo instead of salad dressing since that's all I had on hand and I only used about 1 1/2 cups. That was plenty.

Dilly Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
My family and I thought this was pretty good but not "too die for". I might make this again and serve on grilled rosemary foccacia instead of french bread. The chicken could also use a sprinkle of salt and pepper while cook.

Fairy Godmother Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
This was good and better than the packaged flavored rices but really nothing to rave about. We found it too salty, even though I used low sodium soy sauce. I think maybe 2 packages of soup mix is just too much. It was also quite greasy. I might try this again using only 1 package of soup and 1/4 cup of butter.
