Creamy Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2015
Awesome, decadent, creamy banana pudding!! To the reviewer who said hers was too "soupy" - did you follow the five-minute chilling step for the pudding? The instructions say to mix the pudding mix, condensed sweetened milk, and water - and then to chill the mixture in the fridge for five minutes before proceeding. This is a critical step! When I make this pudding, the initial mixture is soupy (even after I beat it with a hand mixer for 2 minutes) - but by the time it comes out of the fridge 5 minutes later, it is much thicker. That five-minutes of chilling time really does make a difference. And when I subsequently fold in the whipped cream (which I prepare as the pudding mixture is chilling in the fridge), the pudding becomes even thicker. I follow this recipe to a "T" and it turns out great every time. It's pretty heavy (calorie and fat-gram wise) but so, so delicious and decadent - perfect for a once-in-while special family dessert.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
Did not like these cookies. Made them exactly as directed; they turned out dry, with a weird texture and not-so-great flavor.

Tater Tot Casserole III

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
WOW - this is delish!! A huge hit, not only for me but for my husband and the kids as well! I doubled the recipe and baked it uncovered in a 13'x9' pan. Based on prior reviews, I reduced the milk (I used 1-3/4 cup milk total, for the doubled recipe), and I added 8 oz. of shredded cheddar cheese (mixed in with everything before topping it with the tater tots). Turned out perfect...creamy and moist but not runny. The tater tots were thoroughly cooked and not too mushy. Will definitely be making again!

Sunday Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Followed recipe exactly but it turned out bland and watery. Even after putting casserole back into the oven for 15 additional minutes, it was still liquidy in the middle. I use an oven thermometer to ensure my oven temp is correct, so the issue wasn't caused by incorrect baking temp. Won't be making again.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
I wanted to love this meatloaf, but found it to be very bland. Followed the ingredient list and instructions to a "t". Won't be making again.

Overnight Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I so wish I could give this more stars, because it has great flavor and the topping is scrumptious. It's not moist enough though. I followed the instructions to a "T" when making it but it definitely didn't turn out to be very moist. Very disappointing in that regard. Not sure how other reviewers were able to get such a moist result. I use an oven thermometer, so I know the baking temp was correct. The only thing I can think of is that maybe I should have left tin foil on it while it baked (the recipe didn't say whether to remove the cover or not when baking it; I took it off because that's how I normally bake cake).

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Delicious!!! I substituted canned yams (rinsed well), only 3 eggs, and I cooked it for 45 minutes rather than 30 (to make sure it wasn't too liquidy). Turned out great! Topping is the very best part - WOW - yummy!!!! The sweet potato part underneath was just a tad watery, but that could be because I used canned yams instead of fresh. The only thing I didn't like was the overwhelming vanilla extract flavor - it was way too strong for my taste. Next time I'll use 3 eggs again instead of 4, but will use fresh sweet potatoes and only 1 Tbsp of vanilla extract. Highly recommend this recipe to anyone who loves sweet (because this one is!) sweet potato casserole. DEE-LISH!

Adrienne's Overnight Barbecued Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Leanest, most delicious BBQ meat I've ever tasted! I followed the recipe exactly as written, using the leanest brisket I could find. Trimmed whatever fat I could see before putting the meat in slow cooker. I was a bit weary about the liquid smoke flavor, but am happy to report it wasn't overwhelming at all. This is the most delicious BBQ meat I've ever tasted - definitely a keeper!! It should be noted that despite adding corn starch at the end as directed in the recipe, the liquid sauce is still very then - like broth. Next time I'm going to shred the beef, add it back to the corn-starch-thickened sauce, mix well, drain in a strainer, and then serve.

Coconut Poke Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Made this recipe exactly as directed and it was a huge huge hit!! Very moist, rich, and sweet, even three days after being made. So rich that you won't need large pieces to feel satisfied. Should be called coconut cream cake, it's so moist and creamy tasting (but not overly so). Super easy to make. As mentioned in the recipe, don't let the cake cool before poking the holes and pouring the cream of coconut/condensed milk over it (I didn't notice that distinction until the cake had already cooled, and found it difficult to get the liquid to absorb correctly....despite this, however, it still turned out delicious!!). Definitely a keeper.

Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly, including the "interesting twist" at the end. Potatoes turned out perfectly cooked, and flavor was good, but very bland absent the optional sour cream, bacon bits, and chives.

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This casserole is okay, but didn't awe me. I prefer a cracker-crumb & butter topping, which this casserole doesn't have (though one can certainly be added very easily). Also, despite using sharp cheddar cheese, the cheese flavor didn't seem that great. Finally, the casserole wasn't very creamy. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Won't be making it again.
