Best ribs I ever made. My family agrees.

We found it to be rather blah. I added lots of cumin and chili powder.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Robyn's rating

These were wonderful. I found that once the dough warmed up a bit it was limp and hard to cut (all that butter getting soft). So I divided it into 5 discs and refrigerated. Then I rolled and cut one batch at a time, combining the leftovers and refrigerating again. It took a little longer but it was well worth it. These cookies are yummy. I used cyndi's Sugar Cookie Glaze and they were just the right sweetness. Cut 'em thick and use parchment paper. Perfect. I actually took a picture of them decorated and emailed it to my friends -- I was quite proud of how pretty they were!

Baked Spaghetti I

This is delicious! I made a few omissions (green peppers, mushrooms) just because we don't like them. I added a little garlic, used sharp cheddar, and used milk instead of water. No major changes. I understood the recipe used spaghetti noodles but it is not, and isn't supposed to be, "spaghetti". I forgot to put the second layer of cheese on before I put on the mushroom soup and parmesan cheese, so I just put in on top of everything and threw it in the oven. We loved it. Can't wait to try it again made correctly!

Loved them! The addition of orange juice made all the difference. Yum.

Ham Tetrazzini

Robyn's rating

Very good. Four stars because I also make a chicken tetrazzini, and in comparison I like the chicken better, but that's just a matter of personal taste. That said, we ate it all and said "yum". I did make some of the changes suggested by other reviewers; more onion, chicken broth instead of water, no pimento, added black pepper. Also added garlic & fresh mushrooms when sauteing the onion. Next time I'll add more mushrooms. Parmesan on the top. I will make it again. Delicious way to use Easter ham leftovers.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Absolutely delish! I cut the recipe in half for 2 of us and we ate it all! Next time I will add a little less sugar as I found it just a tad too sweet. My husband, a non-vegie, loved it! Looking forward to making it again.

Used black beans instead of chili beans, substituted 1 can drained Rotel instead of fresh tomatoes, just to add a little heat. Just barely crushed the tortilla chips hoping it would keep them from getting soggy, but they got soggy anyway. Maybe they're supposed to. Did not care for this recipe and won't be trying to tweak it because I already have a couple of recipes that are very similar.

40-45 minutes was way too long. The apples were mush.

LOVE! I made it in a bundt pan and it was beautiful. I made the glaze a lot thicker but that's the only tweak.

Bland. And even tho I did use top sirloin steak, the meat was tough. Will try another recipe next time.
