Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
Insanely delicious..Nom Nom Nom!!! I made this as a 3 layer cake for my Dad's Birthday, and it was to-die-for. My changes were as follows: I subbed one cup of white sugar for packed brown sugar, used 3/4 c. oil and 1/2 c. unsweetened apple sauce (instead of all oil), and used 4 tsp pumpkin spice seasoning and 1/2 tsp ground cloves (instead of the cinnamon called for). I divided the batter into 3 round cake pans, and baked for 25-30 minutes. I frosted the cake with a cinnamon cream cheese frosting, and it paired perfectly :~)

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
Seriously...this dish is deserving of 10 stars..it's absolutely delicious! And soo easy! I subbed chicken keilbasa for andouille sausage (because it isn't available in my area). I also don't care for shrimp, so I just doubled up on the keilbasa. I followed another reviewer's advice, and used the "Creole Seasoning Blend" recipe from this site, instead of the seasonings called for... (4 Tbs.). About 1/2 an hr before serving, I tossed in 2 cups of instant brown rice. Three words..To-die-for. :~)

Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
SO FREAKIN GOOD!!! Because other reviewers complained of the meatballs being too salty, I halved the salt called for. I also added about 1 tsp minced garlic to the meatballs themselves. My first thought after I took a bite of one (right off the stove), was that it was just wayyyyy toooo sweet. But don't worry, after sitting for about 1/2 and hour or so, the sweetness mellows out. I served this over a bed of brown rice, and with a side of broccoli and baby carrots. 5 stars all the way :~)

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This is seriously the best carrot cake on the planet (with some minor tweaking). If you follow all of the changes that gneebeanie made, you can't go wrong. I make this every Easter, and leftovers are hard to come by! :~)

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
I am rating this recipe based on some small changes that I made...For the crust, I used 1/2 c powdered sugar instead of granulated. I upped the granulated sugar to 2 cups for the lemon mixture, and used 3 lemons (juices and zests) These are the perfect little summer treats! :~)

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I've been making these cinnamon rolls for quite some time now, and I finally got around to writing a review. 5++++ STARS! Phen-ominal! I can't say enough good things about this recipe :) I did, however, make the dough by hand, as opposed to using a bread machine. I usually make two batches at a time, one regular, and one with about 1c chopped pecans added before rolling. Yummmmy! :~)

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
MmMmMMmmm..I have never tried Irish Soda Bread before, so I really don't have anything to compare this to...BUT it was definitely delicious! I kind of messed up the recipe a little bit... I added 1 tsp baking powder instead of 1 TBS (oops!), and it still turned out wonderful. 5 stars :~)

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
Fan-tastic recipe!! I didn't change one single thing! I would def suggest refrigerating the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes, and make sure that the pb cups are FROZEN (they will keep their shape much better). I plan on making these for Easter, and decorating them with pastel sprinkles.. yummm! :~)

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This was my First-Ever attempt at making Corned Beef and Cabbage. I was nervous, because I was making it for my entire family, and I had no idea how it would turn out. Let me tell you, EVERYONE loved this dish! It was sooo tender and incredibly delicious, I was so happy with the results! Although, I did make the following changes: I chopped up the carrots into large pieces (not matchstick), used all purpose potatoes (quartered), replaced the 4c water with beef broth, and omitted the onions (personal preference). For the beer, I used about 10 oz. of Smithwick's Irish Ale. Also, the recipe states to cook this dish on high..I set my slow cooker to LOW and it turned out perfect. I felt that High was just too hot to cook for 8 hours. This will be served at my house every St. Patty's Day from now on! (and whenever I can find another excuse to make it lol). :~)

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Fantastic wings! I added some extra garlic and subbed 1/4 c of the honey for real maple syrup (because I was running low). I also used franks red hot sauce for the chile sauce. They were pleasantly sweet, with just enough of a kick from the hot sauce. :~)

Green Beans with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
I found this recipe while looking for a similar dish that my sister-in-law makes. I only changed this recipe slightly to make it more like hers. I omitted the salt and pepper, cooked 1/2 lb of bacon and chopped it up to put in the green beans, and added more blue cheese. Healthy? Nope. No way. But, I seriously have DREAMS about these green beans! :~)

Highland Toffee

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Yum! I definitely suggest refrigerating these over night before eating them..they taste sooo much better the next day. The only change that I made to the recipe was to sub melted butter for the 1/3 c vegetable oil. Deeee-lish! :~)

Maple-Drizzled Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
Loved this recipe!! Definitely 5 stars!!! Followed the recipe exactly, except that I used half brown/half white sugar. Baking time for me was just under 18 minutes, so you might want to check them a little early :~)

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I loved these!! They were melt-in-your-mouth, buttery, perfectly sweetened cookies from heaven lol. I only had pecans on hand, so I threw them in my mini food processor and pulsed them until they were small in size. They also sell Pecan Bits in most grocery stores, which would work great for this recipe. I found that I had to add about 2 minutes to my cooking time for them to be completely done. I am still wiping the confectioners' sugar off of my face as we speak! yummm :~)

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
Absolutely delicious dish!! However, I did prepare the chicken a little differently than the actual recipe. Instead, using my slow cooker, I added the chicken breasts (whole), about 1 c chicken broth, and a generous sprinkle of cumin, garlic powder, and a pinch of chili powder. I then cooked it on LOW for 6 hours. When the chicken was done, I shredded it and put the meat aside, (reserving all of the leftover broth), while I browned the onions and chile peppers. Once the peppers and onions were ready, I mixed them together with all of the reserved broth from my slow cooker, the shredded chicken, and an entire taco seasoning packet. I also used whole wheat tortillas instead of the corn and slapped some refried beans on the bottom of each tortilla. The cottage cheese made this dish SO creamy and yummy, it's a wonderful addition. Lastly, I followed another reviewers advice of really covering the enchiladas in the sauce to keep them moist. Both Hubby and I loved these :~)

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
If I could give this recipe more stars, I would! This really is "Amazing" chicken! I slightly altered the bread crumb mixture to suit my taste. I used 1 c freshly grated parmesan cheese, 1 c panko bread crumbs, and added a generous amount of garlic powder. The chicken was SO tender and flavorful! This dish was incredibly simple to prepare, and tasted wonderful to boot :~)

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Oh-my-word...This tasted fantastic and was incredibly easy to prepare...pretty much fool proof!! I left the chicken breasts whole and shredded them just before adding the cream cheese and soup. I also added about 1/2 c white wine at the beginning of cooking. There weren't many leftovers tonight!...I will DEFINITELY be adding this into my rotation :~)
