Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Excellent! It doesn't get any easier than this recipe. I served it with rice, salad, and Larry Lambert's recipe for grilled asparagas from this site. A simple but wonderful meal.

Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I suggest you add the brown sugar a tablespoon at a time to make sure it's not too sweet or overpowering for your taste. Two tablespoons were plenty for our taste. I like a few vegetables in mine so I did add some diced carrots and celery, Thanks for the great recipe!

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
This was excellent! Other than adding fresh garlic, I didn't deviate from the recipe, and it was wonderful. It was so flavorful, moist and tender ... and let's not forget easy. I did marinate it overnight and served it with Jasmine rice and a crisp salad. Nothing fancy, just a wonderful meal!

Pan-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
Excellent recipe with a few modifications. Just drizzle a little oil and cut the butter in half. I also add my fresh garlic near the end just to get the flavor but not overcook the garlic. I find it amazing how so few ingredients can make something so amazing! Plus it was so easy!

This is so good. Don't change a thing here. Thanks for the really great recipe. It's been at our Thanksgiving table for some time now and will continue to be ... along with the other cranberry dishes people bring. Mine even has it's own special glass dish to show off it's pretty layers, ha ha ha. Everyone loves it.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
This was so good. I will make this one often in my Michigan winters. I did add 1 can of black beans and more frozen corn. I made my own chips by cutting some flour tortillas into thin strips and deep frying until crispy. I served them on the side along with other extra's, avacado, shredded cheese and sour cream. Yum!

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Yummy! I made these for the first time last night for my "Christmas Goodie Baskets" for family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc and they were so good I could hardly stay out of them. The recipe made a lot which is great if you are planning on baking, freezing and giving them away during the holidays. More importantly, they were excellent and will be a regular on my Christmas Goodie Trays. I used Ande's Mints and had quite a little production going popping them in and out of the oven, letting the mint's sit a few minutes to melt, then spreading them all around. It's a good thing they were so good because I made a double batch, he he. Thank you Susan

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Too Cool! I made these for my "Little Flower Child" daughter. She loves everything about the 60's, the music, all the upheaval, the clothes, the passion, etc. When I came across this recipe I knew I had to surprise her for her birthday. I made cupcakes and she loved them and thinks "Mom" is the greatest.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Yum! I wanted it to turn out perfect so I did bake mine in a water bath and it was beautiful! It was so good. At first I was totally intimidated by baking a cheesecake, but not anymore. If you follow CHUNG_BRENDA'S wonderful hints, it will turn out just perfect. I use the Strawberry Supreme Topping on this site for the topping and it was so good. Thank you!

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Great recipe! What makes it extra special is how easy it is to make this to suit your family's taste. I added about 6 cups of vegetables, including the onion. I used 1 cup each of carrots, potatoes, green beans , corn and celery, and precooking everything except the corn. It turned out wonderful. Of course I'm sure it's great if you follow the recipe exactly, but why not make it with what you like best. I made it Saturday after Thanksgiving ... I just happened to some turkey in the fridge. Thanks Rob!

Chocolate Caramel Candy

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Thank you Stephanie for the wonderful recipe! I made it and entered it in a Cooking Contest at my Parks & Recreation Department and won a "Gold Medal" with it. I did follow some of the suggestions from all of the wonderful cooks out there and I had no problems with it at all. I did line my pan with parchment paper and totally chilled each layer before adding the next. Another tip I followed was to allow the top layer to chill for a bit and then I scored it with a very sharp knife. I scored it into 1x1 inch squares and when it was totally chilled I had no trouble cutting it. I did remove it from the pan in one big piece using the parchment paper and then cut it. I also heated my knife under hot water and cleaned it often. I wanted perfectly cut pieces for the contest. The recipe and the hints did not disappoint. One 13x9 pan makes a ton and it will be a wonderful addition to my Christmas Goodies I pass out to friends and familly. Thanks again!

Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
This is absoultely delicious! After it cooled I tried a small piece and I wasn't overly impressed. I stuck it in the spare fridge out in the garage. I wasn't even sure if I should serve it or not on Thanksgiving. The next day I tried another small piece and I was dumbfounded. It was a whole different dessert. Straight out of the oven, the topping was all hard and crunchy. When I tried to cut it, it just sort cracked all over. Sitting overnight in the fridge totally improved the topping. It was one of the first to go on the dessert table. Thank you Bea!

Strawberry Refrigerator Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
Everyone loves this one! It's so light and refreshing in the middle of summer. I chill my cake in the fridge while I'm preparing the strawberries and also used the handle of a wooden spoon to make big holes for the berries. I make this (and other poke cakes) often in the summer so I bought a clear plastic, ketsup type squeeze bottle and cut the end down so it has a very large opening. This makes it so much easier to fill the holes. It works great for cupcakes and layer cakes also. I store the cake in the fridge while I make the frosting. When making the frosting, I make the pudding first and allow it to thicken a bit before gently folding in an 8 oz container of cool whip. In the summer "Cool Whip" does sell a strawberry flavor, but if that isn't available, I add a bit of strawberry extract and a drop of red food coloring to the frosting because if you use the vanilla instant pudding without it, it's sort of yellow looking and not very pretty looking on a pink cake. Before frosting the cake I go back and refill the holes as the cake will absorb some of the berries. Try this one you will love it!

Double Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
My search for the perfect chocolate pie is finally over! This is so good. The second time I made this I combined it with another recipe "Chocolate Banana Pie" I am not a fan of boxed pudding and this was the perfect answer. I needed 2 pies and combining it with the other pie recipe, it was more than enough for 2 pies. I followed the other recipe but used the filling for this pie instead of boxed pudding mix. I also didn't add the layer of whipped topping until I was ready to serve the pies. Chocolate curls and a sprinkling of chopped pecans on top of the whip cream made for a beautiful presentation. Thank you for a great recipe!

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Another keeper! I made this last year and forgot to rate it. I made this for the kids and a cheesecake for the adults and quess which one went first? I used hot fudge and spread that on before the coolwhip. I left out the peanuts because most of the kids aren't fond of them. I did serve chopped pecans on the side fot the adults, along with a little pitcher of caramel sauce! Talk about overkill! What a wonderful summertime dessert! *Update* I have made this several times since I have posted. I thought I would remind everyone that it's ok to "wing it" with the ingredients. Since I last made it, the ice cream sandwichs I use have gotten much smaller. It took 11 & 2/3 sandwiches per layer in my 13x9 pan. I'm sure we will have to adjust to the times. The time may come when there is no longer a "large" box of Jello (5 1/2 oz) or a small bag of shredded carrots. I guess I will adjust some of my recipes if they need it.

Buttermilk Mango-Berry Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
Oh Yum! Thank you naples for an excellent recipe! I took a chance on an unknown recipe and made two of them. I served them at a family birthday brunch and they were loved by all. Even the two youngest grandchildren that are usually into frosting and sprinkles skipped the birthday cake and went for yours after a small taste. The directions were exact and well written. I saw no reason to deviate from them or the ingredients. The cake was moist and delicious and the crumb topping was the best I've ever had. The combination of mango and raspberry was excellent although I can't wait to experiment a little, perhaps all raspberry. Regardless how I make it, this recipe will be a welcome addition to the master cookbook. Readers you must try this one, you won't be sorry. Ignore the negative reviews about this being, bland, tastless and just plain ugly. So, not true! Thanks again!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
This was so good and a nice change from spaghetti or lasagne. It's easy to make and it makes a ton. I make it in two 9" square pans if it's just the two of us and that way I have one for the freezer when I really don't feel like cooking. I just pop it in the oven while I make a salad and garlic bread. Thank you so much!
