Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
The batter was very soft, which made the cookies a little difficult to form. I was afraid they wouldn't bake well, but they actually did. They spread out and puffed up quite a bit in the oven, but cooled nice and flat. They were easy to sandwich together and tasted a lot like Girl Scout cookies, but fresher. Good recipe!

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
I'm glad I only made half a batch. Very quick and easy to make, but my family didn't care for them too much. I used semisweet chocolate chips, as directed. Maybe milk chocolate or white chips would have been better. I think it would have been a good idea to add raisins to make them a little sweeter. I won't be making these again, since they've been sitting on the table for a few days and no one is eating them.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I'd give this only 2-1/2 stars if I could. My husband and I thought it was more like a layered dip than a meal. On the positive side, it looked very pretty and was easy to make, but it needed more seasoning, and I didn't care for the chips on the bottom. Mexican lasagne recipes are similar, but much better. I won't make this again.

Monster Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I made half a recipe as directed, but I added 1/2 teaspoon salt. I rolled the dough in a ball and flattened slightly before baking. I had to bake them 14-15 minutes. They came out great; not overly sweet and nice crunchy texture.

Hamburger Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
I used frozen peas, increased the potatoes and carrots a little, used 3 cups beef broth instead of 1-1/4 cup water, and added 1 tsp. chopped garlic, 1 bay leaf and 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce. Very easy to make and delicious!

Strawberry Pina Colada Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
I made this recipe because I had all the ingredients on hand, but I was very disappointed in it. I added about 1/2 cup coconut to the filling, along with some rum extract and coconut extract (using coconut pudding instead of vanilla, as other reveiwers suggested, is a good idea), but it STILL didn't taste like a pina colada. The pie was just OK. I won't be making it again.

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
Great recipe! I substituted 3 Tbs. molasses for the corn syrup, as others suggested. They didn't plump up as much as some cookies do, so you have to roll the dough a little thicker if you want a thicker cookie. Also, they spread out quite a bit, so you have to allow extra space between the cookies when you place them on the pan. This will be my go-to gingerbread cookie recipe from now on. Thank you!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I doubled the recipe, which made 11 jumbo muffins. I agree with other reviewers that the proportion of topping is too much. I only doubled the batter ingredients and not the topping ingredients, and I had over 2 tablespoons of topping per muffin, which was plenty. I used frozen blueberries, which I tossed with a little flour, and they came out great. The blueberries didn't sink to the bottom. I had to bake them 31 minutes, but that might be because of the frozen blueberries. The muffins were moist and delicious and had a sweet, crunchy top. They tasted even better after sitting a few hours and the next day.

Creole Cornbread Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This recipe is a bit of work, but worth it. I made only half a recipe. I baked the cornbread (in an 8-inch square pan), mixed the spices together, and chopped the veggies the day before, which saved a lot of time on Thanksgiving. I used less cayenne pepper and didn't add the tabasco sauce or green chile pepper, and it was spicy enough. I didn't stuff my turkey. I baked it in a greased 9x13-inch pan uncovered for 1 hour at 350 degrees, stirring halfway through. (I like my stuffing dry and a bit crunchy.) Very tasty and even better served with gravy on top.

Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
These were moist and delicious. I increased the recipe to 18 servings, which made 14 jumbo muffins. The nutmeg flavor was a very good complement to the cranberries and wasn't overpowering. The next time I make these, I'll try adding orange zest, as other reviewers suggested, because I love the combination of cranberry and orange. This recipe is a keeper!!

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Ignore all negative reviews; this is a great recipe. Very quick and easy and tastes delicious. I added 1/2 tsp. black pepper, 1/4 cup chives, and a dash of Louisiana hot sauce. The chives floated to the top, which made the quiche look more colorful and appetizing. I baked it 40 minutes and it was perfectly done. I will definitely make this again.

Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
I made half a recipe using one bag of Orville Redenbacher microwave popcorn. It was very easy to make and came out great. I sprayed my hands with Pam before forming the balls. Be sure to pick out all the unpopped kernels before you add the syrup mixture. Good, fun recipe!

Pull-Apart Easter Blossom Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Fantastic recipe and much easier to make than it looks! I've made this 3 times and I've come up with some steps that make it even easier: 1) I cut the recipe in half and make the dough in my bread machine; 2) I place the dough on the parchment-lined pizza pan after I roll it into a circle and cut and form it right on the pan; 3) I use kitchen scissors instead of a knife to cut the dough into strips; 4) After I form the center petal, I twist all the remaining strips first, then form them into petals one after another. Also, I didn't care for the lemon glaze, so I use a simple vanilla glaze recipe. If you're confused on how to cut and form the petals, check out the photos of the recipe. They're very helpful. I LOVE THIS RECIPE!

Candy Corn Bark

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
I took reviewers' advice and didn't use cookies. I used pretzels, peanuts and raisins, and I melted white morsels in a double boiler with a little shortening to thin it out. I stirred the melted morsels into the pretzel mixture, smoothed it into a pan, and placed candy corn on top (no sprinkles). It wasn't overly sweet at all. It had a nice salty/sweet flavor.

Strawberry Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Delicious! I doubled the amount of strawberries, and pureed them in my food processor. The cake tasted great. It had a nice fresh strawberry taste.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
So quick and easy! I brought a tray of 40 of these to a party where there were lots of other appetizers and desserts. There wasn't one of these left after the party. I used Rolos and Snyder's Snaps pretzels. After they cooled, I put them in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes so the chocolate would set up, and they were perfect.

Black Bean, Corn and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
Very quick and easy. I followed the recipe exactly, but I used about 2 cups frozen corn instead of canned. It came out very good. My family liked it. I'm going to double the recipe next time, because it doesn't make a lot, and chili is much better left over.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
5 stars isn't enough! I followed the recipe to a T, and they came out great. My son told me they should be called "Better Than a Cinnabon." There's a LOT of frosting, which is fine for people who like lots of frosting. The next time I make these, I'll probably reduce the frosting ingredients to 2/3 of the amount, but that's just a personal preference. Thanks for the great recipe, Marsha!

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
It would have been much better without the allspice and nutmeg and with more cinnamon. I baked it 35 minutes after adding the topping, and the crust and topping were nicely browned, but the apples were very undercooked. The apples should have cooked longer during the first baking. This pie wasn't very appetizing. Waste of ingredients. UPDATE: I increased my rating from 2 stars to 3, because after I refrigerated it overnight, and the pie did taste a little better cold.

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
The came out very good, but a little bland. They needed more than a "dash" of salt. I should have used at least 1/2 teaspoon of salt, but maybe that's because I used unsalted butter. The recipe doesn't specify what kind of butter to use. I had to bake them about 20 minutes. Very light and buttery. I'll definitely make these again!
