Artichoke Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
I seriously liked this, I thought the dill was going to over power the dish, but it didn't...my family loves dill...So I was watching their reactions. However, in this, I found that it was a tad oily from the mayo and the mayo does come forth just in front of the dill. I'm thinking of adding a splash (tbsp) of milk to help binded the cheese better and reduce the mayo just a little. Possible down to 3/4 cup. But over all, I really enjoyed the recipe and topped it on toasted french baggette rounds. TY

Cranberry-Pecan Olive Oil Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
I hate to rate this poorly. But there is something wrong with this recipe. As much as I tried to make it work...didn't happen. I'm so sorry but, I made this not once, but twice. Both times, the baking was way longer, then the directions stated. 1st cake, as well as the 2nd cake, both were still raw at 55 minutes in the center. 1st cake was in 65 minutes total. And I gave up at 50 minutes with the 2nd one. Part of what I see is wrong, is that the batter is thin, not being able to float the ingredients evenly throughout the batter. The cranberries & the pecans, dropped to the bottom while baking, causing the bottom never to form and bake through. I made sure it wasn't the temp in my oven, with an additional temp hanging on the rack...and both my oven and the thermometer were the same temp. The cakes just didn't work well. I feel that the pecans weighted down the cranberries, the pecans should have been chopped and a least 1/2 the amount used. I was extremely disappointed both rounds. And what part of the cakes did bake, were over cooked and the cake fell apart with the bulkiness of nuts and berries. And possibly, to much oil.

Great Easter Appetizer

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
My family went to town on these!! I kid you not. I made a 2 batches. One as written with the cream cheese and 1 with the cream cheese with onion and chives......and lord almighty! my family hovered the pan at the stove just after they cooled...they didn't make it any further. They were GONE. The overall texture was good, nice crunch from the onion and bread crumbs, I used Panko seasoned bread crumbs...we didn't feel that they needed anything more. But our favorite way was with the cream cheese with the chives!!! Man it was good, I could not keep my fingers out of the mix!! TY a keeper!

Brussels Sprouts Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
The recipe was okay, I could eat it again. I think, 1: I'd refer to let the brussel sprouts thaw instead of boiling them in water, they are pretty tender as it is. 2: Cut the brussel sprouts in half before mixing all the ingredients together, they were rather chunky in the recipe. 3: Mix the can soup, egg and 1/3 cup of bread crumbs together, because I saw that the egg thrown in, didn't incorperate very well and got clotty in some areas of the dish. 4: mix the butter and brussel sprouts together before adding to the soup mixture. And 5: more bread crumbs on top...like that crunch. However, as is, the recipe was fine. It tasted okay. I think with those improvements for myself and my family, and some added pepper and little salt, the recipe will be improved better for our liking.

BBQ Hotdogs on Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
This was not good as is. The ratio from meat to sauce was extremely way off. I followed to a T and there was 4 to 5 times the amount of sauce to 1 pound of meat before I had to salvage what I made. I don't know if it was to sauce up the rice that much because the rice and sausage would be swimming. But I had tons of sauce left over that get got wasted. The molasses was way to strong and way to sweet for this. I had to try and salvage this, so that my kids would eat the BBQ w/ sausage, I added the optional BBQ sauce and it even over powered it. I totally had to add the 6 ounces of remaining tomato sauce(because we can't get 10oz sized cans where I live) so it was entire 16 ounces of tomato sauce and ended up using a full 1/2 cup of BBQ because 1/4 cup just didn't cut out the sweetness of the molasses either. Sorry...won't make again.

Doberge Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
I have to say, end result was great! Best butter cake I've ever eaten! The frosting and ganache simple and easy...if you notice my photo...and see bits in them I totally and accidently tossed in Toffee Bits into the wrong bowl LOL...that's what I get for making 2 different sweet treats at the same time...Note to self not to do that. My only delimma was the custard. I had to make it a few times because I couldn't get it set up right. And when I did, the tbsp of vanilla was overpowering to me. SO a 3rd time, I made the custard and it set up, I only used a tsp of vanilla and followed through with completing the cake, really feel the custard issue was me and not the recipe but I was tickled when I got it to work. It was totally awesome. You only need to slice very thin slices for your kids and family. This cake goes a long way. It's rich, creamy and very delightful. I will soo make it again! TY metread!!

Almost Caramel de Lite Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Very tasty bars...I don't think they tasted anything like the Girl Scout bars. Quick and easy however, stretching the cake mixture to 10x15 was really stretching it to thin, would have been better in a 8x10. As baked in a 10x15 jelly roll, the bar it self didn't hold very well and didn't get holdable pieces without falling apart and the condensed milk was stretched as well not being able to coat everything evenly for the size it was asked to use. I've made bars like this before and the last recipes I've made required an 8x10 pan. I will make these again but adjust to a smaller vessel. TY.

5-Minute Microwave Nutella® Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
while this is a great mug cake, it's too salty in the batter. It tasted more like a brownie then a cake on the 1st round and it rose soo high I thought it was going to explode all over the microwave....trust me I was laughing at it. 2nd cup I made, I omitted the salt all together. And it was way way better....still rose over the cup, so I put it in a soup mug the 3rd time....yes I made this 4x in one night, 3 of my kids and hubby got all excited over it. And loved watching it bake soo quickly in the microwave. TY but won't be making it again with the added salt. Taste way better without it.

Doberge Cake (Dobash)

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I make cakes for a living, and I wasn't to thrilled with the end result. 1st. The recipe all in it's different components were great. However, this cake is soo light, it easily crumbled as I added the frosting. The cakes stacked 5 high, didn't stay put either, as it jiggled while frosting the cakes. It would have been better dividing 2 cakes in half and stacking then stacking all 5 whole cakes. The cakes were soo tender, that when I cut one slice out and placed on a serving plate, I was immediately dealt with the dilemma of catching the rest of the cake, for it split into 2 more pieces and fell off the cake plate I had it on. And I do mean, catching the cake, it exploded everywhere. My husband had to help me get the cake on other plates because I had my hand on one side of the cake holding it up. The frosting was quite delish but I ended up adding over 3 TBSP of milk to thin it. Don't think I'd make this again. I'll make the frosting again for sure. Just not this particular cake recipe. Sorry.

Avocado Blueberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
Easy peasy, but very very tart. I used fresh that I froze instead of purchasing frozen store bought. But it was extremely tart with the greek yogurt, that it made my tongue really dry and made me grab for some water to put the moisture back in my mouth. You can't taste the avocado but you can taste the yogurt above the blueberries. It totally needs a sweetener. My health nut kiddo didn't like it. As she would normally. Possibly the greek yogurt needs to be flavored and you need to add a sweetener to take the tartiness right out of the smoothie.

Grands!® Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I've made monkey bread over the years, normally use the smaller refrigerator biscuits, 1st time using the Grands(R). One thing to watch for in the recipe is topping the brown sugar mixture at the end, please take advice, use a spatula to tuck some of the mixture down beause of over spilling in the baking process OR do what another person recommended she did, was put some of the mixture on the bottom of the pan. I wished I had looked at reviews before completing, would have saved me from burning the bottom of my oven. Other then that, good recipe ended up adding more cinnamon, because towards the last 4-6 biscuits I noticed the cinnamon was no longer ahearing to the biscuits and it was just sugar. But recipe is a keeper and it was quite good.

Grandwich Breakfast Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I always keep on hand, frozen sausage patties and pre-cooked frozen egg patties on hand. For days where ya want a Sausage Egg and Cheese Biscuit without having to drive to a local fast food place. Always a plus with Grands Biscuits and in less then a 30 minute trip, hot and fresh and ready to go. The cost is a lot cheaper too. Always a keeper and an easy pleaser for breakfast dinners too! TY

Basic Vegetable Stock

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
This was soo easy to do, 1st time I've made my own vegetable stock...lord where was this recipe years ago....I could have been doing this all this time...but no, I'd buy the box...not any more. I'm glad the submitter wrote extra notes about using other veggies for different vegetable stock options. I will so keep this from now on. TY I used this recipe as part of my dinner, and it worked soo well in the split pea soup I made.

Easy-Bake Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
Sooo easy to make on a whim! I doubled the batch and mine weren't dry at all, very moist(over kneading will make them dry). They came out light, airy, flavorful but could use some garlic of some kind next round. I topped with some shredded cheese after they came out of the oven, but no one bothered to put the cream cheese spread on them at all. They were satisfying just as they were.

Wintertime French Style Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
The soup may not be the prettiest bella at the ball, but it was well worth the work. It did take longer to get the peas to soften but the overall flavor was really nice, DO add the ham...it adds soo much richness to the dish. And ignore the not soo appealing color from the turmeric....it's still good. And I had to use russet potatoes because my store was out of new potatoes but otherwise, didn't change a thing but would suggest adding a pinch of salt. Everyone in my house enjoyed it, and I mean everyone. Will make again.

Avocado Peanut Butter Brownies (Vegan)

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
As written, this recipe is OFF. I should know, made this recipe 3x. I know most would have stopped at once. But I really wanted this recipe to work & after the third time, it finally did. As written, the recipe, is gritty, oily & a flop. BUT the flavor is there & that's why I took such an interest in perfecting this recipe. When making the recipe the 1st time, a huge issue, don't let the recipe start bubbling, the sugar does not break down or melt in with the chocolate and peanut butter, like you think it would. And if you let the mixture bubbly, you will get an aroma of burnt peanuts. Not a good thing. And I was on that pot like a hawk. Even the 2nd time around, same thing. The other thing is that there was soo much oil at even 1/2 cup with the amount of sugar, the oil never retain & oozed to the point that it was frying the sugar as it was baking in the pan & causing the gritty-ness that you could feel, taste and see. Both 1st two batches, glopped, couldn't be cut into squares, even completely cooled due to the excess of oil. When making the 3rd batch by cutting the oil to 1/4 cup, became a batch of brownies. It still had a slight oily residue left but no where near the 1st two batches. I can tell you, the oil might be even lowered to 2-3 TBSPs but as for modifying this recipe to make it work..lower the oil or you won't have a successful batch to enjoy. The 3rd batch was awesome! Glad I was persistant and got to enjoy a batch! As is 0 stars, as modified 5 star.

Cranberry Oat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2013
The bread was very good, but I found it just a tad on the dense & heavy side. I liked it, it was rather easy to assemble in the bread machine, will make again, possibly a little less flour. But over all I liked the tang of the cranberries.

Ganache II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
I've used this recipe quite a few times. I really like it very much and it's soo easy to use. The recipe is very forgiving. Very flexible. The one thing, I never alway to cool completely because I'm using it immediately. It totally gives that satin look to it when it dries and it quite gorgeous to look at. Even though I've used as directed with bittersweet, I have also used regular semi sweet as well.

White Chocolate Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
My daughter and I made this recipe together, well I helped a some as a teacher to my daughter and let her do most of the work on this recipe on her 1st bread machine bread. I saw how easy it was put together...the bread turned out great. The one thing I have to say, if you have a bread machine that does the automatic fruit & nut drop in with watch for it, my machine, doesn't beep, rather makes the dropping noise and I chose to hold off putting chocolate in the machine because I didn't want to clean melted chocolate off my bread machine. So when I heard the machine do it's little drop lid action, I quickly opened the machine and dropped the chips in & we went to bed. In the morning we checked the machine and saw a beautiful loaf, nicely golden brown. Removed it from the machine and it felt soft to the touch, easily sliceable and smelled terrific. The overall taste was quite nice and there was no evidence of white chocolate chips anywhere in the bread(as far as seeing chips or streaks of white chocolate). It had a mild sweet delicate flavor and a hint of sweet cinnamon. The bread looks of a light honey wheat. And half the loaf was gone before my kids left for school. My daughter was pleased with the taste as well as everyone else that enjoyed it. Now I'll have to make another loaf. TY for the recipe, it's a keeper. Oh one more note to others. Warm water and warm milk is best if the temp is about 105-110 degrees. And select the 2lb option on your machines.

3 Ingredient Pulled Pork Barbeque

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
Soo here's stumbling through this recipe ;-) End result was great. However getting there was like getting Little Red Riding Hood to go to Grandma's ;-) And I grin on this because, I made everything on this recipe, from scratch...no kidding. Went for dry onion soup mix, was out...came to AR, got the recipe and made it..YES! Then was out of BBQ sauce, crud-ola'! Okay made that too from scratch as well, thanks to another AR'er here named Georgi, that's a dear friend of mine, and gave me a recipe she's been making for 30+ years, and it was prefect, just made enough to complete this recipe. It's all good, had I had just the basics already, when I was making this..it couldn't have been any simplier. The only draw back I saw, was this morning, when pulling the meat out to shred it, was the meat on the very bottom had scrotched and I had to discard those pieces. I could have easily put on low and been able to save some of the meat durning the night by moving the meat around to prevent that, but that wasn't the case. Do watch the meat closely. However, the recipe turned out great, even though I had to take additional steps to get this recipe done. And it was worth it because my family asked for me to make it again. And I have soo much. This batch makes alot. I also used boneless country still ribs verses bone in because it's what I had purchased. There wasn't much discarded or wasted at all. TY it's a repeater.
