Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Wonderful! Easy to overcook. Don't cook with your eyes. I could have sworn these were not done by 9 minutes. Consequently, I cooked one batch for 12 minutes and they were hard, not soft like I prefer. I got the hang of it after the first batch. These cookies freeze well. Good for gift giving.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
Absolutely delicious! Followed the recipe with no changes. Next time I will use shredded chicken (just because I like the consistancy better than chunks of chicken) and add a can of rinsed black beans and double the recipe because it disappeared quickly! A definite keeper!**update, I made this recipe with black beans and shredded chicken....YUM!**

Whipped Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
These were delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I used Yukon Gold potatoes. They were a tad dry but, that could be because I had a 5lb bag of potatoes and was guestimating what was 1/2. We had these as left overs the next night. I added about 1/4 c. of chicken broth while reheating and they tasted just as good as the night before. Thanks for sharing. Hubby and the kiddos really loved these.

5-Layer Mexican Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Meh. I prefer my old version with taco sauce, guacamole and taco seasoning mixed with the sour cream. This was very bland!

Hamburger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
I used colored frosting for the "lettuce", "tomato", and "cheese" and Grasshopper cookies for the "burger". Very cute! Taste was kinda weird but, that was not the purpose. I give this a "5" because of the fun time my daughter and I had putting these together!!

Easy Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
I followed the recipe without alterations. There is waaaay too much cream cheese. The bottom layer was soggy. The top layer was almost burnt. I read and re-read the instructions. Not sure why this is so highly rated.

Matrimonial Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This was a good recipe. My only change: I used a 8x8" pan instead of the 9x12" because I didn't seem to have enough oat mixture for both bottom and top layers. The end result was a thicker bar. Thanks for the recipe!

Texas Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I thought this recipe was pretty tasty. I liked the spicy kick it had. If I make this again I will add some pulled rotisserie chicken and some fresh cilantro.

Delicious Pineapple Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
Something went very wrong with this recipe. I thought the topping was tasty but, the body of the muffin was very bland and almost chewy in texture. I thought the amount of baking soda was a bit excessive. A TABLEspoon? Really? Also, it didn't seem to cook evenly. The edges were overdone and stuck to the muffin cups big time. A real disappointment! Maybe this recipe could be salvaged by adding applesauce, crushed pineapple, more butter/oil and/or turning the temperature down to 350. (?) :-(

My Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I was really reluctant to try this very simple recipe. I am so happy with the results! This was very hearty and delicious! I did sub 2 cans of Rotel diced tomatoes with chili peppers for 2 of the stewed tomato cans because I had them in my pantry. I also added another can of kidney beans because we like beans :-) I don't need to search for the perfect chili recipe because I have found it!

Land of Nod Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I get so excited when a new recipe turns out as well as this one did! Don't change a thing! I can't believe how beautiful, easy and delicious this was! My only regret is that I didn't get a picture of this masterpiece before my guests devoured it!

Traditional Reuben Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
This recipe is delicious! Thank you! Tastes like a Big Mac. Yum. Instead of using 2 different breads I used the Pepperidge Farm Rye/Pumpernickle Swirl Bread and layered the ingredients: bread, kraut, beef, dressing, cheese, repeat. Fantastic! Although I haven't tried it, I'm sure this recipe would be good using chicken and light dressing to cut a few calories.

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
I made this recipe in a hurry (sick child) and didn't take the time to read what other posters had said. Hence, a overwhelmingly salty soup! Yuck! It was salvagable because I added lots of water to it. (I would have had to add water to it anyway because it was too thick and pasty for my liking). Next time, I will omit the salt (broth adds plenty) and also add carrots. With these alterations it is worthy of a 5 star score.

Crispy Coconut Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
These were pretty good. I followed the receipe exactly and mine never got golden brown like the photo. The taste was good but the texture was soft - not crispy like I would have preferred.

Dawn's Easy Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
These are delicious and beautiful! I left out the bourbon in the mix. I measured my dough with a 1/2 tbsp to make each cookie uniform in size. The cooking time was perfect at 8 minutes for my oven. I did not add evaporated milk, coconut or nuts to the icing. These need to be refrigerated. They taste better if you let them get to room temperature before eating.

Hot Apple Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This was really good. Instead of just adding the peels, I added slices of orange and lemon because it looks pretty. Next time I won't leave them in as long. As a previous poster mentioned, the citrus tends to make the cider bitter after a while. It's important to add the spices that are mentioned. If you use ground spices as a substitute, it won't dissolve quite right and you'll have a layer of spices on the top.
