"I'm curious...the cake pans are ungreased...does that work? Why not grease the cake pans? I always have trouble with layer cakes sticking to the pan and would be afraid to bake this without greasing the pan."

"Enter your review here...I just made these cookies for a church function. I used a devils food chocolate cake mix and added 1C. Andes Creme De Menthe baking chips. They smell good and taste even better. Yummy, quick and easy - what more could you ask for!"

"Just cooked this today...my husband said it was way too salty. I did follow a suggestion of adding 1/2 T. of sea salt, onion & garlic powder. I only added 1/2 t. so next time I will not add any salt. My son doesn't like to see mushrooms in things so I did not add the sliced mushrooms and I pureed the golden mushroom soup. Round steak was my beef of choice and I only added 1/2 C minced onion. I did not add cream cheese since I didn't have any and only about 1/4 C. sour cream. Also, I added 4 dashes of Worcestershire sauce - that probably added to the saltiness. I liked the easy way to prepare it all in the crock pot so when I try this again I'll adjust the salt and maybe review it again!"

Chicken Gloria Casserole

After getting a substitute cheese suggestion from Sugar, I tried this last night for our family meal. It was tasty -served with wild rice - I used provolone cheese, added 1 garlic clove minced with the mushrooms & a little onion, 2 cans of cream of chicken soup 'cuz that's what I had on hand. The sherry flavor was so slight I might add a little more next time. I put the mushrooms on half of the chicken since my son wouldn't dream of eating them. We have enough left-over for a second meal, too. Pretty easy meal and good, too.

30-Minute Beer Cheese Soup

Our family has enjoyed this soup for years! But...it's once a year-twice at the most so I don't fret about the contents. We always serve this for our evening meal on Christmas Eve after church. My kids expect it and now that some are grown they have shared the recipe with their friends. It holds well in the crock pot on low and just add more chicken broth to thin it if it becomes too thick. We have frozen this soup too - again thin it with broth as needed.

Caramel Apple Dessert

We were really disappointed with this dessert recipe. I had made an apple crisp type recipe last week that was fantastic. We had a few more apples that needed to be used so I tried this one for a different taste. Not good at all - very little caramel, apples stay on the top and just don't look nice. I added cinnamon to the apples, cinnamon and vanilla to the Bisquick cake part as suggested in other reviews. Still not good! I threw the recipe away.

I found this recipe early 12/10 and decided to make it for my husband's Christmas bday - didn't get to do it. Then meant to make it for my son's bday in Feb.- no go either! Finally made it this weekend for Mother's Day. What a hit! My layers are not lovely but who cares since the flavor is out of this world. Some guests even had it for breakfast this morning. I did use cool whip instead of whipped cream and it turned out great. Awesome cake - worth the little bit of extra effort.

Cinnamon-Orange Mini Muffins

I'm sorry to say that these were really disappointing... I added extra orange peel because I got carried away and had an extra teaspoon. The batter seemed a little dry to me so I also added 1 T. OJ. There was hardly any orange flavor in my muffins. I would not have known they were orange muffins if I hadn't made them myself. The best part was the cinnamon sugar on top. I don't plan of keeping this recipe as I won't make them again.
