Made this for a girls' bunco night and served with toast points. Everyone loved it! My hubby is a bit pickier and although he thought it was fine, he didn't rave quite as much. Thinking about making again today for a potluck.

Foolproof Rib Roast

I made this for a pre-Christmas meal with a few family members because prime rib roast was on sale and they loved it!!! (I don't eat meat so have to go on their review). My husband ate all the leftovers the next day, my father-in-law said it was one of the best rib roasts he'd ever had and my 3 year old ate it up without fuss. It was very easy to make and I would definitely use this recipe again.

Made this for dinner one night. Although my 3 year old wouldn't eat it, my husband who doesn't like shrimp much, devoured it and requested that I add it to our regular recipe book. Definitely best right off the grill while hot. Would make again as appetizer.

Pecan Pie Bars

People LOVE LOVE LOVE these!!!!! I don't actually like pecans or pecan pie much so I don't eat them, but I ended up making them 3 times just over the holidays because people liked them so much. The general consensus is that they taste like pecan pie but better. People also liked the edge pieces that get a little crunchy. You could win a contest with these!!

My family LOVES these! I don't even like meat much but these are awesome. I put everything in the crockpot together for approx 5 hours and they are SO quick and easy to make this way. I took a recommendation from one of the other reviews to use cilantro (have tried dried & fresh - both were fine) instead of oregano and love it!

Cucumber-Avocado Salad Dressing

Love avocados. Love cucumbers. Did not love this dressing. Too thick for a dressing and didn't like it as a dip. Too bad because the ingredients are all great and probably would have been a lot better just chunked together.

Looked beautiful on the plate and fairly easy to make, but didn't have much flavor. Would consider making again with addition of something that would give it a little more taste.

Sarah's Homemade Applesauce

We would give this more stars if possible. My son & husband love applesauce but they really LOVE this version!!! We try not to use sweeteners so left out the sugar all together - just apples, water & cinnamon. Took advice of another reviewer and dumped everything in crockpot and cooked for 2-3 hours. AMAZING!! They loved it hot, they loved it chilled. They even loved it when I thawed some frozen raspberries, mushed them and added into the applesauce. Next time I'll try tossing in a bag of frozen raspberries, blueberries or peaches in the crockpot as well for a flavored variety. Thanks for such a great recipe!!!

Barbecued Beef

This tasted fine and most people would probably really like, but you really have to like thick sauces covering your food. That's not really our thing so it was a bit too thick and sweet and essentially covered the flavor of the meal. My husband ate it, said it was good but didn't want me to make it again. My son ate some of it, but while protesting.

Honeyed Chicken

Made as written + pinch of cinnamon as recommended in other reviews. Great idea but was disappointed. Very little flavor. Tasted the dijon but that was about it. Rest of the chicken was really bland and had to push my 4 year old to eat it. Positive was it was very easy to make.

Cucumber Tomato Salad

First time I made for guests and they seemed to like it, but the dressing was a bit overpowering where I had a hard time actually tasting the veggies. Made it again and same outcome. Our young son had a hard time with the smell and couldn't sit next to us so not sure I would try it on kids. However, would consider bringing it to an adult pot-luck. Will probably not make again for our family.
