Perfect Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
Great recipe for "Perfect Roast Chicken"! I was able to use this for a 7 lb. bird so if you've got something smaller I'd cut the recipe in half. I didn't have garlic salt so I used a bit of salt mixed with garlic powder. I also opted to add a bit of onion powder to the mix. I put it in the roaster and covered it with non-stick foil and let it set in the fridge all day. I stuffed the cavity with some onion and celery let it come to room temp. and baked it for about three hours and it smelled divine. This was so incredibly moist, tender, and delicious without a ton of effort - great recipe!

Super-Easy Rocky Road Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
OMG! This definitely was "super easy" and absolutely fabulous! Not to mention it was a sinch to make so if you've had trouble making homemade fudge in the past this is your recipe. The microwave method was so simple yet proved to be every bit as rich and creamy as the fudge that my Grandma used to make. I opted for peanuts vs. walnuts and be sure to let it cool every so slightly before adding the marshmallow or they will melt into the chocolate. I lined a 9x13 pan with non-stick Reynold wrap which made for easy clean up. Thanks for a great recipe!

Caramel Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
Apple pie is an all-time favorite and this caramel take on this classic was delicious! It was also very easy too. For the 9 inch deep dish pie crust I opted to use "Baker's Secret Pie Crust" from this site. I also subbed vanilla for the rum extract as I didn't have any on hand. I did use a little more cornstarch than called for which proved to be a good idea - there's nothing worse than taking the time to make a homemade apple pie and have it turn out runny... This smelled wonderful in the oven and tasted even better. It was hard to let it cool before cutting into it! Perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
This was so much fun to do! I dipped the apples in boiling water for a few seconds first to remove the wax. This did make the caramel stick better. After that I left a couple plain, coated some in nuts, and others I drizzled with chocolate. No matter how you like 'em - plain or decorated with your favorite toppings these are a classic that evokes great fall memories!

Mini OREO Surprise Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
Anything with Oreos is bound to be good and this was no exception! These were so easy to make and so adorable that I'll definitely make them again. I did find that I used a bit more of than 1/2 Tbsp. of cream cheese mixture per cupcake, but that's OK because the more the better. I didn't use Cool Whip for the frosting, but opted for "White Cake Frosting II" from this site that I've used on "Cookies 'n Cream Cake" before. It tastes just like the inside of an Oreo and it pipes beautifully. It worked great on these little beauties!

Chocolate-Filled Crescents

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
This was so easy and yet so delicious! It's a perfect little snack that's great for chocolate cravings. Ya just gotta love it when two simple ingredients come together to create something so tasty. Plus you can easily "fancy" this up a bit and add a little cream cheese to the middle or drizzle with white chocolate and garnish with strawberries or raspberries - I swear you can put anything in a crescent roll and it'll taste good....

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
Egg sandwiches are a staple in this house - in many shapes and forms. And this turned out to be a nice little breakfast sandwich - much better than going to a drive-thu! I made this for my husband as he's an absolute bacon fiend. I microwaved each egg in a pudding cup sprayed with Pam for about 35 seconds - top with your favorite cheese, crumbled bacon and you're all set. This was so easy to make and and done in no time at all! Perfect with a nice glass of OJ!

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
OMG! These cupcakes are absolutely delicious, perfectly spiced and have just the right about of sweetness. I made these using a Texas sized muffin tin. The orange in the icing definitely complimented the cupcake. I piped that over top and then sprinkled a little pumkin pie spice. These were so good that I'll most certainly be making these again - perfect with an ice cold glass of milk or a piping hot cup of tea!

Classic Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Fabulous dinner rolls that are quick and easy to make! Light, fluffy and just plain good - what more could you ask for? Plus, I have to admit warm dinner rolls are hard to resist. I used my Kitchen Aid stand mixer with the dough attachment to make easy work of the kneading. I brushed these with melted butter before baking and the result was wonderful. You could easily add a variety of herbs or top with Parmesan cheese and change the recipe to suite your tastes or to compliment your meal. Great recipe!

Mixed Berry Smoothies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Delicious and nutritious! This was so simple to put together and had a wonderful flavor. You can easily sub strawberries or bananas for the blueberries and make it to suite your own tastes. I used a fat free greek vanilla yogurt to make it nice and thick.

Santa Fe Veggie Quesadillas

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
Great recipe and perfect for a quick lunch or snack! This was very eaty to prepare and the combination of colors and flavors not only made this very appetizing but tasty too. I opted for light Mexican blend cheese and used two tortillas to make it more of a "quesadilla". Perfect with homemade salsa, quacamole, and a dollup of light sour cream.

Super Easy Spinach and Red Pepper Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
This definitely is "super easy" and tastes wonderful! I opted for shredded Parmesan cheese vs. grated and added just a little salt, pepper and garlic to the dressing. Next time I might add a little red pepper flakes for a little added "kick". This was very light and refreshing and you can easily adapt this to suite your tastes.

Slow Cooker Cheesy Tortellini

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Excellent and perfect for a "fix-it and forget it" recipe! I added a little minced garlic and chopped onion while browning the ground beef and opted for sweet Italian sausage. For the marinara sauce I used "Best Marinara Sauce Yet" from this site (sorry Classico) that I had frozen as it's one of my favorites and is perfect for just this type of recipe. I didn't use cheddar cheese as I really didn't think it paired well so instead I used shredded Parmesan. Wonderful served with a fresh garden salad and warm bread!

Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Great recipe for classic comfort food! I haven't done this in years, as I'm so used to doing them on the grill, or cheating and doing them in the microwave! But, my husband really wanted that "old school" baked potato so I thought I'd indulge him. And, just as Nurse Ellen states - this was super easy without heating up the kitchen! These were soooo good - especially with all the fixen's: butter, salt, pepper, bacon bits, chives, and a little sour cream! Simply perfect!

Honey Garlic Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Great side dish that very easy to throw together! I cut the recipe in half and saved on time by using a steam in bag of baby carrots. This eliminated the water and all I did was combine the rest of the ingredients and poured over the carrots, tossing them to coat.

Grilled Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Wow - great combination of flavors! I used boneless chicken breasts and opted for white wine vinegar vs. balsamic. Since I didn't have garlic salt on hand I used minced garlic and a little salt. I didn't bother cooking the marinade but rather thew everything into a ziploc bag and let it marinate all day. The result was a moist, tender grilled chicken with a nice sweet orange flavor. Thanks KitchenKing!

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Great recipe! Ya just gotta love it when a few simple ingredients come together for something so good - and there's nothing like homemade pancakes on a Sunday morning! I added 1 Tbsp. of white sugar along with a generous tsp. of vanilla to take these over the top. Definitely light and fluffy and delicious topped with real maple syrup. I served these with sausage, fresh fruit, and OJ!

Lemon Thyme Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Great side dish that easy to prepare and doesn't require a ton of ingredients! I cut the dried thyme back to 1 tsp., added a little salt and pepper along with some lemon zest. Overall, very tasty!
