Spiced Coconut Coffee

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
I loved this coffee! It was a very unique, flavorful cup of coffee! I adapted this recipe for a single serve, instant, decaf, coffee method because I'm the only coffee drinker in the house! It worked perfectly! This is what I did...I brewed a cup of instant coffee in the microwave. Then in a tea bag sleeve I added the following spices as listed in the recipe...1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. ground cloves. I dipped this into my coffee and let it steep for 2 minutes. Removed the spice filled tea bag and added the honey and coconut milk. I also added 3 drops of coconut extract for extra coconut flavor! This was exactly what I wanted! I'll be drinking this alot from now on!

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
I made this as written and it was perfect! I marinated it for 24 hours. I grilled it until slightly pink. Then I put in on a baking sheet and covered it with tin foil. I let it finish cooking in the oven at 200 degrees for about 1 hour. This kept it soooo juicy and flavorful! I loved this! Just the right amount of sweet and savoury! I was so tempted to tweak it, but I didn't! It was perfect as is!

The John Collins Cocktail

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
I gave this a try when I saw LTH's photo! I had to make some changes according to what I had on hand! I subbed pink champagne for the club soda and a raspberry for the cherry. I also doubled the simple syrup because unlike LTH, I like sweet drinks! This was VERY good! John Collins can come to my party anytime! =D

Champagne Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
I don't know why other reviewers didn't like these cookies! I thought they were very good! They remind me of a sweet bread! I did have the same problem as other members...the dough was way too sticky to form into balls. Instead I just dropped them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet using a tablespoon measure melon baller. Then I sprinkled them with the nonpareils(multi-colored sprinkles). I baked them for 12 minutes and they were perfect! These are a nice soft cookie with a slightly crunchy edge. Not too sweet, which is how I like my cookies! And they did taste great with a glass of champagne! This is a good way to use up leftover champagne! I added a few photos!

Grands!® Fiesta Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
This was very good! I doubled the recipe and put it in a larger pan. I agree with Tiffany to add the cheese at the half way mark. This reminded me of a deep dish Mexican style pizza. I served up large portions of this with a side salad! A very filling dinner!

Grands!® Biscuit Taco Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
This was extremely good!!! I made it using my own chili recipe. Then I baked them in the Pillsbury Grand Biscuit cups. This is a great way to serve chili! These buttermilk biscuits go perfectly with chili. I will make this often!

Chicken Alfredo Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
I made this tonight and my family totally loved it! I had to make some changes because my kids are picky eaters, so I subbed peas and spinach for the mushrooms and broccoli. I also doubled the recipe! The brand of jarred alfredo sauce I used was Ragu and it was very good! I don't usually used jarred sauces, so I'll probably make the alfredo from scratch, next time, to cut down on the fat. This was a creamy, hearty, chicken and biscuit casserole that will be made often in my house!

Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
This was VERY good! I love the smokiness from the bacon. This dish has a nice sweet/savory balance. I made it as written except I added some grated parmesan cheese and served this over egg noodles as a main dish. I can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch.

Butterscotch Haystacks

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
After reading lots of reviews I decided to take the advice of other members! I only used half the peanut butter and I subbed pretzel sticks for chow mein noodles. I also subbed cranraisins for the mini marshmallows. I only made half the recipe because others said it makes alot...and they were totally correct. I made mine into wreath shapes for Christmas. Cutting the recipe in half, I still got 12 wreaths that were huge (3 1/2 " diameter). I also had a problem getting the wreaths to set firm. They were firm only while chilled. Within 10 minutes of being out of the fridge the haystacks wreaths fell apart when you picked them up. But the flavor and texture was very good...crunchy, salty and sweet.

Cheesy Thumbprint Appetizers with Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
This was very good! I made it exactly as written. The dough came together nicely in the food processor. I got 24 cookies out of this recipe using a small melon baller. For some reason the dough never browned around the edges. I even baked them for a few minutes longer. I couldn't leave them in the oven too long because the jelly would have totally dissolved! Next time I'll bake them much longer than 5 minutes before adding the jelly. Very tasty though!

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2012
I love this method of making popcorn because I can control the fat and salt! It's less expensive than buying pre-packaged microwave popcorn. I usually fold the bag once and add 1 staple. It never sparks in the microwave.

Vinegar Pie X

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
I never had a vinegar pie before and I was a little worried about how it would taste! The title didn't sound appetizing but I was curious so I decided to try it! This actually tasted very good! It reminds me of an apple pie without the apples...lol! Does that make sense? This pie should be called 'Spiced Custard Pie' because that's basically what it is! I made it exactly as written. The only problem I had with this recipe is that I had to make the filling twice because one batch wasn't enough for my deep dish pie crust. And the other problem was that the directions should state to serve the pie chilled because my pie oozed into a pile of pudding when I cut into it even though I waited for it to cool. Very tasty and interesting recipe! I would make it again!

Corn Flake Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
These macaroons were excellent! I made them exactly as written! But I did crush the cornflakes a little because they were very large flakes. The macaroons were crunchy and sweet. I love the addition of the cornflakes because it keeps the macaroons from being too coconutty. I only got about 20 macaroons from this recipe. I will definitely double the batch next time! Great easy recipe!

Fachamatta's Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
The video for this recipe is very helpful in seeing the color of the cooked potatoes and the thickness of the sliced mozzarella. I fried the potaoes in 2 batches because 3 lbs. of sliced potatoes crowded my large skillet. I also layered my potatoes, mozz and sauce according to the way iy was done in the video, which was different from the written directions. I used my own sauce because I already had some in my fridge. This recipe is basically a potato parmesan! I loved it! And I loved hearing the story behind the recipe! Thanks for sharing, Dogwood2 =)

Cream Cheese Sweet Almond Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I was looking for a bread that would be great with a cup of coffee in the morning so I decided to use this recipe but just add more sweetness. I doubled the brown sugar and honey and instead of putting the almonds into the dough I mixed them with 1/2 cup of brown sugar and about 1 tbls of corn oil and sprinkled it all over the top and sides of the dough before baking it. I added 1 tsp. of pure almond extract to the dough. This was exactly what I was looking for! It was very slightly sweet and crunchy on top and I love the tang from the cream cheese in the bread! I didn't do a second rise. I just let it rise for 1 hour in a greased 8"x8" baking dish with my almond/sugar topping, then just baked it at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes! My house was filled with the lovely aroma of sweet almond bread! Perfect! I will be making this ALOT!

Shot Glass Cream Cheese Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I love shot glass desserts! I often order them in restaurants, so I was happy to try this one! I tweaked it to become an 'Almond Joy' flavored dessert because I'm on an 'Almond Joy' candy bar kick lately! I only made 2 servings. I lightened up the cheese by using 1/2 cream cheese(fat free) and 1/2 ricotta cheese. I also added a few drops of almond and coconut extracts to get that 'Almond Joy' flavor. I also topped it with sweetened shredded coconut and chocolate chips. This was soooo good that I wished it was larger than a shot glass! YUM!
