Farmer's Ranch Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Eh. These were fine, but a little dry. Maybe we used too many potatoes, but even after adding some more cream mixture (because it looked to dry before baking) these still weren't that great. We'll stick with our au gratin potato recipe in the future.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Everyone in the family loved this- even my two youngest who are usually very anti-meat. Hubby followed this recipe, only using 4 defrosted chicken breasts instead of 6 frozen. Cooked on high for three hours, then shredded, and put back in juice in low until we were ready to eat. Delicious!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
This was absolutely delicious! My entire family raved about this and we are making it again even though we just had it a few days ago (we have a lot of apples to use from our tree:)) Anyway, we followed some other reviewers advice and made the following changes: -doubled the topping (next time will only time and a half it, as it was a little too much) -mixed apples up with the flour/cinnamon mixture -did not add the water to the apples -didn't really measure the apples...maybe only used 8cups? Just kept adding until all sugar mixture used up, then added 2 more apples to coated ones -used 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg -cut the butter into the topping with mixer instead of melting it Thanks for the great recipe!

Cinnabun Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
These were pretty good, but not worth the effort. I thought they needed icing on top, too.

Easy Three Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
This was pretty yummy. I docked it a star because it had way too much sauce. Probably one jar would have been sufficient; maybe one and a half at most (not 6.5 cups!!) Very cheesy, so you could cut back a little on the cheese topping and still have plenty of cheese. Overall, good, though!

Brownie Biscotti

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2012
Very chocolatey. Perfect if you like the harder outside edges of brownies. We still prefer traditional biscotti.

Pear Banana Berry Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
This recipe was surprisingly good. The combination of fruits seemed a little odd, but it turned out delicious. I followed the recipe as written except substituting 2 fresh pears for the canned ones, and substituting the second 1/8 tsp of cloves with cinnamon instead. The end product still tasted of cloves, and I think if I had used cloves the second time it would have been too strong for my liking. I used fresh squeezed juice from one orange for the orange juice. My kids were looking for the leftovers this morning, but their dad had already taken them to work:)

Mom's Best Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
This turned out okay for me. Not delicious, but nothing bad, either. The chops stuck to the pan after I flipped them over- I think not turning them would have been better. They also seemed crispier before I turned them. Overall, the flavor was rather bland and the finished product was a little too greasy for my tastes. Family seemed to like it a little better than me. I don't think I will make this again.

White Cake Frosting I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
This icing worked great for the candy land cake I made for my daughter's 6th birthday party. I doubled the recipe, but used one less cup of powdered sugar. I also used 1 c shortening and 1/2 cup butter. Nice flavor, and stiff enough to decorate with. I would definitely use this recipe again.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
I halved the recipe because I only needed one loaf of bread. For a half recipe I used 1c white sugar and 1/2 cup brown, and I substituted a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves for the allspice since I didn't have it on hand. Lastly, I used 1.5 cups white flour and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour. I put it in the oven at 325 degrees (my oven cooks hot) and it took 1 hour and 10 minutes to bake. Overall the end product was a nice, moist gingerbread, with a hint of pumpkin flavor. Everyone enjoyed it, although no one raved. I would make again.

Pepperoni Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
This just wasn't that great. Okay, but certainly nothing extra special or delicious. Probably won't ever make again.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
These were delicious and gone in a flash. I even doubled the recipe!:) Anyway, I doubled everything except the topping and baked in a 9x13 pan. It took about 34minutes or so in the oven. Even with not doubling the topping, I still didn't use all of what I had. I would probably halve the topping, or at least cut back a little on the cinnamon. Also, I would add some more apple next time, even though I used two overflowing cups I would have liked more. I also used an apple peeler/slicer to cut my apples, but next time I would hand cut so I could leave the apples a little more chunky. Overall, great recipe!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
This soup was good, but I was surprised by how cheesy it was, even with only half the called for cream cheese. I followed others' suggestions about roasting the squash first, instead of trying to cut a hard squash into little cubes. Simply sliced it in half lengthwise, and put on greased pan in oven at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written except only using one (8oz) package of cream cheese, being a tad scant on my pepper measurements (for the kids' sake), and using base instead of bouillon cubes. The kids liked it (which was a nice surprise,) but the overwhelming flavor was cheese, not squash. I think this recipe should be called Cheesy Butternut squash soup. I can't even imagine how cheesy it would have been with two bricks of cream cheese! Anyway, overall this soup was good, but just not what I was expecting.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
These were fast (as rolls go), easy, and delicious. My kids' only complaint was that there weren't enough! I followed the recipe ingredients exactly, which makes for a very wet dough, but works perfectly. I mixed in the kitchen aid for about 3-4 minutes once I added the flour, and then let rise about 45 minutes. Then I used a greased ice cream scoop to scoop dough into greased cupcake pan. (This recipe made 12 rolls for me.) I let rise about 30 more minutes, and then baked at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Perfect:) Will definitely make again!

Simple Ranchy Breaded Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Too strong a ranch taste for my family. No one loved these. The first few bites were good, but then it was just too much.

Rosemary Zucchini Sticks

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
These were okay, but nothing special. My kids all hated them, and while my husband and I thought they were fine, we probably won't make these again.

Peg's Summer Squash Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
My husband and I really liked this. I did modify it a little, but just by adding a few spices. I used a little bit of garlic salt sprinkled over the squash, as well as some cracked black pepper. I spread the zucchini in a single layer on the pan, but with a little bit of overlap so I could fit more squash in. Yum!
