Mom's Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
This sandwich takes grilled cheese up quite a few notches. I used slices of Amish White Bread from this site and baked the buttered sandwiches in the oven at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes per side just because I can get a more even browning that way. I didn't read the recipe closely and put the parmesan inside the sandwich rather than on the outside, but I intend to make my grilled cheese sandwiches this way again.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
These were my first real yeast rolls I've ever made, and they were delicious. Extremely soft and tender. They did turn out huge though. They were so big that I'm thinking I could have divided the dough in three parts instead of just two. I made 1/2 the batch into crescent rolls and baked them. I made the other 1/2 into round rolls and froze them. **Update 1-17-13 - I took 3 blobs of dough from freezer, thawed, and created 6 cloverleaf rolls. Of course, I let them rise. They were plenty big and perfectly delicious!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I baked 4 cookies and put the rest of the dough in the freezer so I could have cookies for the grandkids at a moment's notice. These cookies did not turn out flat at all as some other reviewers suggested. Mine were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I baked them for 9 minutes. I would definitely make these again. ***They also bake up quite nicely after the dough has been frozen.

Sweet and Salty Toll House® Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I wasn't expecting to like this cookie as much as I did. Because I didn't want big chunks, I probably broke the chips and pretzels into smaller pieces than most other people. These cookies even froze very well.

5 Cup Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
What a blast from the past! I love ambrosia and decided to make this for dessert using reduced fat sour cream and fruit packed in their own juices. Delicious!

Super Easy Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
This fruit dip was certainly "super easy," but it did not have enough flavor for me. It was a weak flavored dip, and I even used twice the amount of yogurt called for.

Not YOUR mom's mac & cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
I prefer creamy mac and cheese, so I didn't cook it. We love sharp cheddar, but I think the worcestershire sauce may have made it a little stronger than we prefer.

Easy Cheese Ball II

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I made this for Christmas and shaped it like a snowman. I added some of the white cheddar cheese to the mix but also rolled it in the grated cheese to make it look like snow. I used chocolate chips to make eyes and buttons and mini chocolate chips to make the mouth. I used a piece of candy corn for the nose, but it bled after being put in the refrigerator for a few hours. I forgot the snowman's scarf, which I was going to make out of a carrot using a potato peeler to slice off a long sliver. The hat was a sociable cracker with a Rolo on top.

Milk Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
This is a good base recipe to tweak to one's choosing. You could use frozen bananas and change the type and amount of sweetener. One packet of Splenda was plenty for me.

Chicken a la Fire Station

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
This is a dish fit for company. I put fresh spinach leaves inside the chicken breasts before rolling them up. I also cut the sherry down by half just because I was afraid it would be too strong for my personal taste. I served it over egg noodles. Delicious! (The butter puddles on top, but if you stir up the sauce, it's all good. The butter could probably be omitted.)

Dark Chocolate Cherry Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
I am not a fudge person at all, but this fudge has several things going for it. It doesn't require being cooked to a soft ball stage (which I can't do), so it is very easy to make. It is creamy and is NOT dry and crumbly. And it has a nice added flavor with the addition of the dried cherries. In fact, I think it could actually use more cherries in it. A nice addition to the Christmas dessert tray.

Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
I own a pizza stone and a pizza pan with holes in the bottom, neither of which is appropriate for this dish. So I decided to use an oblong casserole dish and it worked very well. I even got mixed up with the layering and it still turned out well. A delicious breakfast casserole which I had for dinner.

Slow Cooker White Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
This is a really good white chili, albeit very different. I really liked the cilantro and lime flavors. Since fresh tomatoes looked terrible, I used a can of diced tomatoes, drained, instead. It's easy, quick, and quite tasty.

White Chip Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
I love the fresh orange zest in these. It's the perfect amount for my taste. This is a great cookie for a Christmas tray or even a ladies tea. It's delicate and not heavy on the chocolate.

Cappuccino Muffins with Chocolate and Cranberries

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
Wow, there is so much going on in these muffins! They are a lighter, cake-like muffin. The orange and chocolate flavors are predominant with only slight undertones of the cranberries and coffee. Personally, I would prefer these for an after dinner sweet rather than breakfast. I made the entire recipe and got 22 muffins. I hope they freeze well. **Update - Oddly enough, the next day after having sat under a cake dome, these muffins were not cake-like at all. They had more of a muffin texture.

Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I cut this recipe in half. I dropped them in small 2-3 bite sizes and still had 31 of them! This cookie is similar to the no-bake kind with peanut butter in them, but I like them precisely because they aren't made with peanut butter. The coconut flavor really shines in this easy, easy cookie.

S.O.P.P.

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
I've been wanting to try this recipe for quite some time. Tonight, I needed a quick and easy recipe, and this was certainly it. I used some thawed, left-over chicken sausage I'd had in the freezer and threw this together in less than 30 minutes.

Butterscotch Haystacks

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
I cut this recipe in half and amazingly had exactly 3 dozen pieces! While this isn't my favorite, it is extremely quick and easy to put together. It makes a great last minute sweet to carry somewhere or give as a hostess gift.

Sweet Potato and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
This smoothie makes me feel as though I'm eating healthy and getting my veggies in for breakfast! I froze the banana and used skim milk. I felt it needed a sweetener of some kind, so I added Splenda to mine.
