Easy Grape Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2015
My family quickly devoured this recipe. This was too quick and ubber simple to go wrong anywhere in this recipe. With only a few ingredients....a fabulous recipe in a flash. I creamed together Greek Cream Cheese and Marshmallow Cream in my KA and then folded in my grapes and added in additional pint of strawberries because the recipe does make a lot of fluff and adding the strawberries was perfect. Rather then adding the almonds into the mixture, I left it out to top each persons serving, whether they wanted a little or a lot it was more their choice due to their own preferences. I will make again especially when needing to use up extra fruit that needs to be eaten and not wasted. I will be making again TY

Macaroni and Cheese III

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2015
Super good recipe, My family really loved it. It was totally easy to make. I used diced tomatoes not stewed & macaroni pasta noodles to Cavatappi noodles because it's what I had on hand. I will make this again. My only criticism, which isn't a big deal, was the melting of the cheese to a smooth consistency, it never got smooth. However, the recipe is a keeper. This recipe is also on the UK site with one minor difference, this one says stewed tomatoes and the other whole peeled tomatoes.

Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2015
This recipe was super easy to make and utilizing leftover yoghurt. I liked the flavor because it reminded me of a custard but it needed a tad bit of sweetness not much but a tad. And a little more vanilla.

Margarita Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
OMG!! These were the best. I was totally skeptical about how these would turn out, but I soo wanted to enjoy them for National Margarita Day. And they did represent beautifully. They were super moist, they rose nicely. I had to sub the Tequila because no liquor store was open when I needed the right alcohol, nor did my store offer Agave Nectar or any sub that I was looking for. After several AR foodies helped me out, I went with Triple Sec and I couldn't tell any difference at all. The cupcakes tasted of a margarita and I was pretty please! So pleased that I made a 2nd batch of cupcakes using Cherry Flavored 7-Up soda and added 1-2 tsp of cherry extract. I think, those were more my favorite. Topped with light store brand frosting, with a coating of colored sugar around the rim of the cupcake paper, and inserted a straw for added affect. My only nit-pick was that I'm not a drinker and I had to purchase a $10 bucket of Margarita Mix for a small quantity to put in the recipe, however, I quickly made virgin margaritas for my kids and it ended up with everyone being happy happy and loving this recipe and wanting them to be made again over Cinco De Mayo. TY TY TY!!! What a good recipe.

NO YOLKS® Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
This did NOT go very far with barely any left over. Everyone in my house loves a good tuna noodle casserole and this one fits the bill. We left out the mushrooms due to one child's issue with them and midway into folding in the peas, I stopped when it looked like too much for us, and only added 3/4 of a cup. That was plenty. The one suggestion I might give the next person is, instead of sprinkling the all-purpose flour over the mixture in one of the steps. Reserve a 1/4 cup of the vegetable broth and make a slurry with the 3 TBSPs of flour. The ease of doing that will allow you to avoid clumpy flour bits when the directions tell you to sprinkle it over the mixture. I always tend to have that happen and avoid it as much as possible so that the mixture is smooth. Flour does not sprinkle well at all. Avoiding this will have better results in your dish in the long run. But other then that. I will make this again because it was just flavorful and comforting as a wholesome dish for my family. 10 stars if I could rate it that high.

NO YOLKS® Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
I liked this very much. Totally simple for an on the go family that doesn't have time to roast their own rotisserie chicken and/or cook a chicken and make fresh stock with herbs and spices. It's what I normally do for my family. This recipe totally cuts down the prep. While the recipe was so simple, I felt it lacked in the flavor department just a tad. So I added additional dried herbs to bring out the broth flavor more. About 1 tsp of Italian Seasoning and that did it total justice. The best part of the recipe was the noodles, I've used the No Yolks before and they never stick to each other and the never get gummy the next day or soak up the broth in make you add more. Love the fact I can over cook them and the noodles get super large and still retain perfectness. TY pretty good in my books.

Easy Garlic Kale

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
I liked this and I'm so so normally when it comes to Kale. I guess I've had some bad experiences. I do love it in Chicken Burgers though and I tried this raw and liked it too. Could have been the fact that I bought it organic and super fresh. So making this for my daughter who's a fan, made it nice that I didn't have anything negative to say but rather compliment the garlic flavor and the simple recipe that packed full of flavor. I can totally see making this again. TY

Bloody Broken Glass Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2015
Basing this recipe off of the broken glass candy and the blood recipe...FANTASTIC! I had already made the cupcakes and frosting with a different recipe then the recipe on here just because I was working on custom cupcakes for a client. I strictly use this recipe as an add-on to what I was already doing. And it worked out perfectly. Served up bloody brains jabbed with broken glass for my clients was out of this world fun. The candy tasted wonderful like cotton candy as my husband and others stated and the blood color was the bomb. I would recommend adding a clear flavoring by Lorann's to enhance the blood because it was knock your socks off sweet. I added cherry to go with the cherry filling I had inside the cupcakes. Will totally make again. Because it was a total hit and now I have more people asking to make the same cupcakes as I photo'ed for this recipe. TY because this is a perfectly fun recipe to play with.

PHILADELPHIA New York-Style Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2015
recipe was really good, with a soft set center. Made homemade strawberry jam and the family really liked. I would have liked it to be a little denser but as is was really nice.

Caribbean Canadian Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
I made this written to a T other then have a few extra pieces of chicken to use. I was so-so with this personally (something with the flavor) and my family totally loved the recipe. The chicken was tender and moist. I'll make it again for the family, because they liked it. Possibly would change the molasses to honey.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
I totally loved this recipe. I normally make a recipe as is but when talking to other peeps in the Buzz, I took a different stance on the out come of my birdie. I only used 1 chicken but used the whole seasoning part in this recipe to coat the inside and out before proceeding to the cooking process. Then popped this bad boy into my Novopro Oven featuring the rotisserie feature and away I went. It turned out so well and we LOVED it.

Simple Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
My family seriously loved this recipe. I did make a short cut with the chicken due to my whole birds not thawing in time for when I was needing them. I doubled the batch (was feeding 8 people) and used a huge family size pack of chicken breasts (about 4.5lbs worth). Used very large red and green bell peppers for color and contrast. Sliced them verses diced purposely because I have a few in my family that doesn't like them (easier to spot and pull out). Then I mixed all ingredients together in a sprayed casserole dish and followed through with the baking process and occasionally stirred for even doneness. It made quite a bit of sauce. Which was fine, because each could adjust the amount of sauce they wanted on their plates with the choice of pasta or rice. Any leftover sauce will be poured over rice. However, there was no ketchup-y taste at all. I feel that the flavor was really good because of the vinegar, onions & bell peppers. Will totally make again. And for my non-loving cooked peppers and onion hubby, he totally enjoyed them. And that was a shocker!

Banana-Oatmeal Cake (Screwed-Up Mother's Day Cake)

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
For having a recipe that was screwed up, it was a nice change. Happy mistakes are always a plus. This recipe was slightly dense, however I think it plays it into it's favor because it can easily be baked in a jelly roll style pan and made as snacking bars for after schoolers. I thought it still had a nice flavor, and I could taste both the banana and oatmeal. TY very much.

Banana Pancake Pops

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
These were super easy to make and tasted great, very sweet though. Will have to say, there was a lot more batter then 2 bananas could utilize. It took over 4 really long bananas to use up most of the batter. I also think I didn't cut these at 1/2 inch either. They were more like an inch thick. And to me, that was perfect size. And I used my deep fryer, which was simpler. Otherwise, these were so tasty and the bananas were extremely soft from the frying that I was popping them left and right into my mouth. I'm not one for baked or fried bananas unless it's in bread but these were amazing. I didn't play nice and had a hard time sharing ;-) TY will make again.

Deep Fried Candy Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
How much food sin can one make with this recipe???? OMG!! Was awesome. There was only one negative thing about this recipe and it was the amount of batter to 2 candy bars. Either the batter amount was over kill...or there was a type-O with the amount of candy bars needed. I did mention to AR through instragram to show the batter verses candy bars. However, it took 18 regular full-size Snickers to use the batter up. And that's the only negative about this recipe I have. The rest was totally rocking the positive. My batter was extremely thick, which in this case was totally needed to hold in all that gooey candy bar goodness. They fried up just beautifully and I was totally impressed. I did try and fry one candy bar in leftover pancake batter, to see what the difference was before proceeding with this recipe and once I made the recipe I quickly knew, what the difference was. 1. Pancake batter in this case is to greasy, sweet and soggy within minutes and the bar quickly returns the candy bar back to almost the original state. 2. The batter in this recipe, is thicker, sturdier, not sweet, not as greasy as pancake batter and holds the heat in longer for the candy bar to be enjoyed when slightly cooled to the touch to handle. This was amazing!! Now, some milk for my sweet tooth coma of happiness. We already have plans to use other specialty candy bars for the next go around using this exact batter! TY sooo very much. My whole family thanks you.

Andes® Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
In my best devilish and descriptive tone on how I feel about these cookies......Austin Powers "yeahhhh bae-bee!!" geez, I'm in love! While I followed everything to a T, 42 portions in this dough are too big & after about 4 hours in the fridge, still slightly sticky (use a little extra flour to douse each portion when wrapping the candies in them). That's the only negative thing I have to say about it. Other then that, I bought 2 (8.5oz) bags of Andes Mint Chocolate candy to make sure I had enough as the recipe stated, however, I thought I was even being liberal with the dough making sure the cookies were perfectly wrapped as possible. My dough worked out giving me 56 little cookies and still had plenty of leftover candies from the 2nd bag I bought to make the drizzle with. I found that next day, the cookies were still crisp but not hard bricks and that's a plus in my book. I will note that if you don't drizzle the cookies, you can pop them in the microwave for about 10 seconds to have the centers extra gooey and become a mint cookie addict. I will be making these again at St. Patrick's Day and at Christmas because they sure are worth being a repeat offender in my house. TY so much. Another added note is, when I melted the leftover chocolate mint candies, it seizes in the melting process, so add a tsp of shortening to loosen it up or a little more if needed to drizzle beautiful trails of minty goodness over the top.

Applesauce Cinnamon Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
I have to say, this was an interesting recipe. I have never had anything like it and can't say, that I will again. No offense. I love red hot candies, Jell-O and applesauce but everyone that tried it in my house was perplexed on what to make of it. For one, it was extremely cinnamon-y sweet, it sat in the fridge for over 4 hours and held a shape for like 5 minutes and started turning into gelatin-y sauce. Was not impressed about it flattening while trying to take photos of it and I went so far as to put it in pretty mini molds for it's appearance but by the time I walked with it out of my kitchen and into my office where I have my photo box, it was almost pouring off the plate. Then just turned right around, went back to the kitchen put it in a bowl and called it done. Then emptied all the other mold together into a bigger bowl and back into the fridge. If it wasn't so overwhelmingly sweet and held it's shape, I might enjoy it better. Sorry my apologies.

Applesauce Brownies II

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
While this recipe looked totally like a cake when it came out of the oven, wasn't dry, wasn't even very moist. Very bland, lacked any good "brownie" quality flavor, wasn't sweet either. While I don't mind a cake style brownie but this really, wasn't that at all. My apologies, I will not be making this again, no one cared for it at all.

Applesauce Walnut Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
Very moist, not chewy, didn't have a defining flavor. Meaning, you could taste something but it wasn't either applesauce or chocolate. As weird as this might sound, needs to be sweeter or it was missing something. Mine were falling apart around the walnuts. Not crumbly just not holding shape very well when pulling out of the pan in bar form. Not sure if I'd make again however, at most for me, they were just okay.
