Dad's Pan-Fried Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
These were really good, easy & quick to make. I added a little less soy sauce and sprinkled some shredded parmesan on them after I removed them from the pan. Will definitely make again and look forward to trying this recipe with asparagus also.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This is a simple recipe and easy to make - but, wow what flavor! I used the sundried tomatoes that are packed in oil instead of the regular dried ones, but, I press them in a paper towel to get out the excess oil. That way I get all the flavor from the marinated tomatoes - but, not the excess oil. I also pound out the chicken until almost doubled in size for even cooking. I also slice my chicken in thick slices and put back into the sauce instead of cutting in 3 pieces. Simple recipe - but, full of flavor.

Chocolate-Filled Crescents

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Yum, yum, yum! These are so easy to get together and decadent! I mixed some softened cream cheese with a little powdered sugar and spread a thin layer on the crescent triangle. I then added the chocolate chips and slightly pressed into the cream cheese. I rolled from the big end and made sure the open ends were facing up once rolled. This recipe is so versatile! You could fill with just about anything. I think some nutella and chopped hazelnuts would be amazing! Give these a try!

Pumpkin Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
This was really good and easy to make. I didn't use the orange juice concentrate because I didn't have any - but, I didn't feel like the recipe was missing it. I also adjusted the spices to our taste - I used less cinnamon & nutmeg and added a little pumpkin pie spice. It was a perfect compliment to gingersnaps.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
We are chocolate lovers so we thought this was great! Sometimes I add toffee bits or add walnuts to the brownies for a little crunch. My next plan is to try making with blonde brownies with butterscotch chips and using a butterscotch pudding.

Praline-Pumpkin Mousse Cornucopias

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
This was so much fun to make and such an elegant looking dessert! As others stated the directions in making the cornucopias was very clear and so easy to make. The mousse had a nice flavor and wasn't overly sweet in comparison to the caramel sauce. I think the puff pastry horns would be so versatile. Pefect for filling with a vanilla creme to make a cream horn or a chocolate mousse.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Perfect pancake - light and fluffy with a nice crisp around the edges. They have great flavor and uses ingredients that I always have around the house. This is also really good if once you ladle the pancakes onto your pan you top with fresh blueberries (or mostly thawed frozen ones) before you flip to the second side to cook. Yum!

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
This is heavenly!! I couldn't believe how easy it was to make. I have made it for my office and a family dinner and everyone loved it. I like the taste of hot fudge better so I used it instead of chocolate syrup. I microwaved it for a really short time just enough to make it spreadable but not hot. DO NOT put on the cake until cooled - it will melt your ice cream. I also spread the chocolate mixture over the ice cream sandwiches first and then the whipped cream -much easier to spread. The peanuts are a good contrast to the sweetness. I will make this over and over again - and it feeds a ton of people!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
I have been making this for years and it is soooo good. I used canned sweet potatoes instead of fresh just to save time. At Thanksgiving I usually make the sweet potato filling the night before and the next day just top with the pecan mixture and bake. So easy and yummy.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
These were so easy and turned out perfect! I made in the bread machine as stated. Per other reviewers I mixed the cinnamon and sugar together with the butter to form a spreadable paste. After cutting I let rise for about an hour and then covered with buttered plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator until the next morning. I took out about 30 minutes before baking and baked at 350 for 20 minutes. They turned out perfect! Will definitely be making again.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
So easy and so good!! As suggested by other reviewers - I cooked the chicken in the slow cooker in chicken broth for 4 hours (I used fresh chicken). I then drained the broth, shredded the chicken, combined the other ingredients and added to the chicken, and cooked another 45 minutes - 1 hr. This was very flavorful. The next day I used the left chicken to make a barbeque pizza - shredded chicken, red onions, cilantro, and mozzarella. My husband really liked it on a sandwich - but LOVED it on the pizza. (One tip - I am not crazy about the dough they have in the grocery store and I almost never make it from scratch. I go to my local pizza parlor and buy uncooked pizza dough - stretch it out into the pan and your done! It is so much better and enough dough for a large pizza only costs me $ 2.50.)

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
AMAZING! This is the best banana bread I have ever tasted - unbelievably moist. I did follow the advise of others and spinkled sugar and cinnamon on top so I would have a nice crunchy crust but a soft and moist inside. We prefer our banana bread dense instead of light and fluffy, so again I followed advise of previous posters to mix in the flour by hand instead of using an electric mixer. This turned out perfect. I didn't change any ingredients. I was able to do two big loaves and a big pan of muffins (I cooked those at 300 degrees about 18-20 minutes - depending on the size of your muffin tins.) Definitely will make again!

Coconut Poke Cake

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
My cousin has been making this exact recipe for years and we all LOVE it! The cake is so moist and flavorful. The people that I know that don't like coconut - actually like this cake because the cake itself doesn't have a strong coconut taste and the fresh coconut is just on top of the cool-whip -so anyone who doesn't care for coconut can easily take it off. If you like coconut though - you will LOVE this cake.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
All I can say is YUM!!!! This was so good and very chocolatey! The coffee definitely enhanced the flavor. It was even better the day after I baked it. I frosted with a chocolate buttercream. 100% give this a try!

Salsa Chicken Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
I really didn't know what to expect from a meatloaf using ground chicken and pork, but, wow the taste really packs a punch! It had so much flavor and tasted really fresh using fresh jalapeno and cilantro. My ground chicken and pork came in 1 lb. containers. I noticed that other reviewers used an entire lb. of pork, so, I did to so I didn't have and extra 1/2 lb that I probably wouldn't use. I added a full 2 tbs. of taco seasoning and 16 oz. salsa to accomodate for the extra pork. I left everything else the same. So, so yummy! It was moist and cooked perfectly in the time listed on the recipe. I will definitely be making again. Thanks, HockeyMom!

Stay Skinny Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
This recipe was easy to put together with ingredients I almost always have in my kitchen. They had a lot of flavor without the heaviness of a sausage stuffed mushroom. I did add several drops of the optional hot sauce for a little extra kick.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
This was really good. I did follow Corrine's suggestions because I like a hearty broth. The wine definitely gave it a richer flavor than just beef broth alone. I cooked it in the crock pot for 10 hours. I like my broth a little thicker, so, after cooking in the crock pot all day I transferred the broth to a pot on the stove and thickened with a mixture of 1-2 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in cold water. I then added the vegetables and beef back to the broth. It was really wonderful and I am sure it will be even better tomorrow.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
This is a chocolate lover's dream!! It is so good and VERY CHOCOLATEY!! We are huge chocolate fans, so, instead of powdered sugar I poured the "satiny chocolate glaze" from this site over it (yum!). Next time my husband requested a peanut butter glaze.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2014
Perfect side dish for just about any protein, but, I served with grilled "Unbelievable Chicken" from this site. I made as the recipe stated, but, only used 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup butter in the potatoes. I also used green onions instead of regular onions and we like the flavor and texture much better than a similar casserole I had made in the past. Based on other reviews I cooked a little longer - about 50 minutes and the potatoes were perfectly cooked. Big hit with the family! My niece packed up all the leftovers to take back to college with her for her dorm - that is winner in my book!

French Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
This was a great idea! It added so much more flavor than using just regular sour cream. I used Dean's French onion dip and used a little more more milk than listed just to make it creamy. Also a little tip...I always just throw a large peeled garlic clove in my raw potatoes while they boil. It fully cooks and mashes perfectly in the potatoes. It gives you a nice mild garlic flavor when you don't have the extra time to roast garlic in the oven.
