Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
These are super yummy. No need to use food processor - just soak the oats in the buttermilk while preparing the batter. I even used old fashioned oats, not quick oats. The only thing I would modify is cut the salt back to 1/4 tsp. I also like to throw in a Tbs of ground flax seed to raise the healthy factor. The first time I made them I thought the batter looked thick so I added a little more buttermilk but won't do that again because they were too moist so stick to the 3/4 cup! My 3 year old said they were delicious! This recipe is a keeper!

Roxie's Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
These were quite good. I did not have apple or honey so I simply added an extra ripe banana and 1/2 cup brown sugar in place of the honey. Also my wheat flour had expired so I used white AP flour. I did not plump raisins in water either. I let the egg, milk & bran soak for few minutes then added all ingredients to it, flour being last as not to overwork it. The texture was wonderful-very moist and slightly chewy on outside. Perfect amount of sweetness. Yummy!

2-Step Skillet Chicken Broccoli Divan

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
I'm afraid that this tasted like it came out of a can. Sorry but it just didn't work for us.

Spinach Mushroom Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2012
This was really delicious. I halved the recipe and made a couple minor adjustments. I used baby bella mushrooms and sauteed them in olive oil and butter. I'm not a fan of ricotta cheese, so I only used about a quarter cup or so. Everything else I did by the recipe. I also think that a little salt really added to the flavor so next time I will add salt as well as pepper. It is perfect for mushroom lovers; if you are not a hard core mushroom fan you will want to scale back on the amount you put in. I will definitely add this one to my recipe book, thanks!

Breaded Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
This was quite tasty. The coating has a nice crunch from the corn flakes. My husband and I prefer a buttery cracker crust to the corn flakes, but it's worth a try because everyone's taste is different!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
This is to die for! I only made a couple very minor changes. Firstly, I didn't use quite as much bacon as it called for (I think 8 strips does the trick) and I used pine nuts instead of sunflower seeds, but either would work for sure. And since I am not a raw onion fan, I minced the red onion and only added about a tablespoon and a half. I used golden raisins and for an extra treat I added a little shredded cheddar. It was so divine! I'll be making this again!

Toddler Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
OMG these things are so dang tasty! I think my husband and I like them even more than our picky toddler! Just be sure that your grated carrot does not exceed 1 total cup of carrot, because they will be too moist and won't cook well if you do. And I think they taste the best when made in the mini muffin pans because the edges get really brown and it adds to the taste. When they are hot out of the oven I can hardly stop popping them in my mouth. This is an excellent recipe and great not only for picky toddlers but the whole family as well!

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
OMG. This is AMAZING. I halved the recipe and thank goodness I had the sense to stop myself from eating the entire thing. It is so DELICIOUS! I made it entirely with frozen raspberries and the only thing I changed was that I omitted nutmeg because I dislike it and I didn't quite use as much butter as it called for -- since I halved the recipe, I used 3/4 of a stick of butter instead of the entire stick. Also, I baked it for 40 minutes and wanted the top to be a little browner, so I put the broiler on for a minute or so to get it nice and brown. Oh my, it is complete HEAVEN! I will be adding this to my recipe book for SURE. It is the perfect marriage of tart and sweet --- not too sweet and with a nice tart edge. It tastes like a cobbler to me -- it's just so dang YUMMY!!!!!!!

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
These chops are fabulous. The longer they cook the more tender they get --- super yummy and a staple in our recipe book!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
These are wonderful. I halved the recipe and the only change I made was that I added an extra cup of blueberries. These muffins also keep well and are wonderful the next several days heated up in the microwave. Will definitely put this one in my recipe book!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
OMG this is AMAZING. Best pot pie EVER. I made a few adjustments based on previous reviews. I upped the onion to 1/2 cup, added 1/3 corn, increased the chicken broth to 2 cups, added 1/2 tsp of garlic salt and added extra pepper. Came out perfectly! Also I used 2 cups of pulled chicken breast because I have no idea what the pounds come out to be - it was about 2 1/2 medium chicken breasts. I wouldn't put more for fear it would be too dry. I prebaked the bottom crust for about 6 minutes on 425 in a deep dish pie dish and that was crucial because soggy crust gives me the willies. I also lowered the temp to around 375 and baked it a little longer than normal. This was simply amazing!! Will become a permanent recipe in my recipe collection!

Strawberry Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
OMG - THIS IS AMAZING. The best strawberry cake out there. I won't bother with any other from now on. The secret is to add strawberry puree to both the cake batter and the icing. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception that I took 14 oz of frozen whole strawberries (unsweetened!) and thawed them partially and then pureed them in a food processor. I set aside 2/3 of it for the icing and the rest I put in the cake. I heavily sprayed 2 round cake pans with baking Pam and the cake was just perfect. So moist and flavorful with that real strawberry taste - not artificial tasting at all. Then for the icing, I made a cream cheese strawberry icing that is to die for. I took 12 oz cream cheese (which is one full block plus another half) and 2 sticks of unsalted butter and used a beater on medium speed to cream that together until smooth. Then I added the 2/3 cups strawberry puree, 1 tsp vanilla, 4 cups of powered sugar and pinch of salt. Mix together with spoon and then beat again until smooth. It is just amazing. The consistency is not very thick, but will ice the cake just fine. Just use toothpicks if you made the cake in two 9 inch pans. The flavor is out of this world. I made this for my uncle's birthday and everyone raved about it! This will be a permanent addition to my recipe book and I won't bother making a different one ever!!

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Perfect lemon bars. I made modifications because I love them tart and not very sweet. No change to crust except that I used an 8 x 8 pan, and baked it for 15 minutes at 350. Do not overbake! It will not be browned and it should not be. I was going to follow Gourmet Mommy's modifications but I only had 3/4 cup lemon juice, so I used 5 eggs, 5 TBS flour and 1 1/2 cups sugar and they turned out PERFECTLY! Tart, thick and very yummy!!!

Sesame Chicken with Honey Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
This was okay. It is rather bland and needs salt or perhaps some other spices to kick up the flavor. Also, the coating tends to come off the chicken pieces. I also agree with a previous reviewer that it has a "powdery" nature. Won't make this one again.

Italian Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Awesome pasta salad! I only used red and green peppers as I don't care for raw onion and it was just delicious! It even kept very well the next day for my potluck and did not dry out at all. I recommend chopping the peppers into very small pieces. They stay nice and crisp even the next day. I got many compliments on it, especially from my husband who tried to eat half of the bowl the night before the potluck. This one will most definitely go in my recipe book!

Basil Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
This was okay, but did not knock my socks off. Maybe using a thinner pork chop would offer more of the flavor from the rub. My husband liked the flavor, but again, for those of you who don't like thick pork chops, switch to thin for sure.

Gumbo Style Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Not crazy about this. It did not have enough liquid at all and the flavor was lacking. My husband is cajun, so I guess we are just used to more authentic dishes.

Zippy Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This was to die for! I did make just a few modifications. I didn't use leeks, added a green pepper, added cayenne pepper for extra hot spice, cut down on the corn a bit and used fat-free half and half. It was simply amazing even with the fat free half and half. Will add this one permanently to the recipe book!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Oh my gosh this is so good. This soup is to die for. I used 2% milk and added extra potato and extra ham and it was perfect. It is a gravy based soup, so it is not for dieters, but truly a comfort food if you are looking for one! Next time I will try it with 1% milk and less flour as to thin it up a bit. But definitely a keeper in my recipe box!!!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
These cookies are waaaaaay too sweet and they did not come out very thick or chewy either. I would like to take some of the reviewer suggestions and try them again. I will definitely reduce the sugar and chocolate chips and try refrigerating the dough and see if that helps. Otherwise, they are just too sweet to eat.
