Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
These are pretty good, my DD loves them, DH isn't too fond of them and he's got the biggest sweet tooth in the house! After melting the chocolate and peanut butter, I tasted it and thought it needed something else. I stirred in a cup of white chocolate chips and the flavor was greatly improved. I decorated the stacks with a few white chocolate chips for color.

Rich and Creamy Potatoes Au Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
Celeste...these potatoes are so yummy! Quick to put together and so creamy, my family loved this dish. I nearly broke the bank on the Gruyere but it was so worth it!

Greek Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
I found a deal on lamb shoulder chops and without having a clue what to do with them, I snatched them up! Luckily I found this recipe. With the exception of using chicken stock in place of lamb stock, I followed the directions to a T. Just before adding the green beans, I tasted the broth and added more oregano and cinnamon and also a bit of brown sugar to cut the acid of the tomatoes. I gave the green beans 30 minutes because we like them a bit soft in stews. Surprisingly, it was a hit with the family! Next time I'll pay more attention to trimming the fat off those chops! Even better..this would be great with lamb stew meat!.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This was so-so. I don't think I'd make it again without some significant modifications. I followed the recipe and found that the crust was dry, crumbly and lacking in flavor. Perhaps some cinnamon would help here, but to not sure how to correct the dryness, except for reducing the baking time. We liked the filling but there needs to be more than 1/2 cup jam. The topping needs to have cinnamon added too. I think I'll look for another recipe.

Goat Cheese and Arugula over Penne

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
I was looking for a recipe to use up some wonderful goat cheese I had. This recipe was suggested to me and I'm so glad I tried it!. The flavor of this recipe is outstanding, and more importantly my husband and teen daughter both loved it (and they think they don't like goat cheese)! I sauteed some sliced baby bella mushrooms that I had on hand with the garlic, and subbed chopped roasted red pepper for the tomatoes. This dish came together in less than 15 minutes total, which is another reason I'm giving it 5 stars! Don't hesitate to make this recipe, it's awesome!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
If you like fudge-like brownies, these are the ones for you! They are intensely chocolatey, fudgy and a little gooey from the chocolate chips...a chocoholic's dream for sure! I followed the recommendation of using half white and half brown sugar, this may have given these brownies that extra depth of flavor to send them over the top! Yummy!

Cowboy Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
Well, these are pretty darn tasty! My husband was stunned when he saw me mixing the preserves into the pan but was quick to say "these are really good..I'm surprised"! We didn't think they were too sweet, in fact there is just a touch of sweetness. Just be sure to use only the amount called for regarding the apricot preserves. I would recommend trying the cubed pork for some 'bite'. I used leftover shredded pork that I had on hand and by the time everything else was added, it was a bit mushy, so I would think the minced pork would be the same. I served these with the usual taco toppings.

Turkey Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This recipe has great potential. I doubled the recipe since there were 3 of us but instead of using just 2 tsp. curry, I used a heaping tablespoon. I also used increased the other seasonings generously. Still, more curry would have been welcome. This finished dish is also lacking some color, it's not very attractive (but this did not affect my rating), so next time I make it I think I'll add either some diced red bell pepper or diced carrots to the saute. I note that another reviewer suggested adding golden raisins, that's a great idea. My family loved this, my 14 y.o. told me to be sure and make it again.

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
These were okay, I got mixed reviews at the party I brought them to. Most of the guys liked it, but the rest of us thought it was way too salty. I like the idea of this recipe, but I would choose some lower salt meats next time.

Sweet and Hot Apple Slow Cooker Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I would make this again, the pork is succulent, it's an easy recipe, the sweet potatoes are very tender and the sauce really doesn't need thickening. It's lightly spiced from the chipotle, but it is missing something. A little more salt and pepper helped, some cinnamon...still not quite right. I'll figure out what it is the next time I make it! I would recommend not adding the apples until about half way through the cooking time so they keep their shape a bit.

Applesauce Raisin Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
My husband went nuts over this cake! It's very flavorful and moist, and it really doesn't need any frosting. I think of it as a 'snack' cake, good for lunch boxes and great with a cup of coffee for breakfast. I used 2 cups white whole wheat flour and 2 cups AP and it was still a very moist cake and slightly healthier version. I cut back on the sugar to 1 and 2/3 cup, still sweet enough for us. I also added a bit of salt. I thought maybe I should add some vanilla, but it is just fine without it. Next time I might bake it in a jelly roll pan...this cake is very tall and takes near an hour to bake. In spite of that extra cooking time, the cake did not dry out on the edges or the top at all. One more thing...I would suggest baking this a day ahead...it is so much better today and it slices much easier too. Love this cake!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I don't know why I've had this recipe in my box for at least five years and have never made it until now! Follow the directions and you'll end up with moist, flavorful and juicy shredded pork. We're having it tonight with little Hawaiian rolls, coleslaw and baked beans.... the sky's the limit for the leftovers! I wonder about the liquid smoke...if different brands could make a difference? I had no complaints of an overwhelming smoke smell. Just perfect!

Italian Turkey Cutlets

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
This is quite good, I thought the seasoning was just right...and the sauce improved the longer it simmered. I think the issues with too much seasoning depends on what brand of tomatoes you use and personal tastes. Just add the herbs a pinch at a time. Much healthier than a breaded parmigiana but with all the flavor intact!

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Looking for a way to use up leftover holiday ham and a few cups of finely diced veggies from another recipe....I found this! I used leftover white rice that was in the fridge and fried that up separately in some sesame oil, then tossed in the veggies that had been stir-fried in vegetable oil, the ham and 2 cooked eggs, then the soy. Wow, this tasted better than take out! 5 stars from everyone! Perfect!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
I baked these for my dad's 84th birthday and I must say....none of them made it to his house! I had to make another batch and box them up as soon as they cooled! So, yes, I'd have to say they are pretty darn good, maybe even the best!

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
This is a very hearty chowder, really warms the soul! And Cindy, you're right...the whole family adored it! I would recommend that you don't add any salt...the bacon and the soup mix make it plenty salty, wait until serving to taste test then add salt if needed. I put in one package of soup mix, blended it and added part of the other, I guess about a half, until it tasted right to me. Thank you Cindy for posting this delicious and easy clam chowder!

Simple Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
So easy and good! I had nearly a pound of leftover taco meat so I used that and skipped the first part of the recipe. A can of Rotel works great if you've got it. My recommendation is to use half a packet of the ranch mix and then add more to taste, it's pretty strong stuff. Half was perfect for us. I also added some broth because we wanted this more of a soup than a chili. I'll fix this many times, I'm sure!

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Comforting and delicious is right on Christina! We loved this soup and I appreciate how quick and easy it is to throw together. Followed the recipe closely, using a small rotisserie chicken that I pulled apart. I used fat free half-and-half and only about a cup, that was plenty creamy for us and saved quite a few calories and fat. I had half a red bell pepper that needed using so I diced that up with the other veggies. There was no need for the optional cornstarch slurry, this was a perfect consistency without it. For those that commented that this soup lacked flavor, I would look to your chicken broth as the culprit! Make sure you choose a flavorful one, or better yet make your own.
