Jeera Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
Good recipe and complimented Chicken Adobo very nicely. I used brown rice and subbed in honey for the sugar, I think I would use 1 1/2 or 2 T of honey next time. Otherwise everything seemed about right!

Mammaw's Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
This was ok. I wish it had a crispier exterior. Definitely have had better but have also had worse.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
Quick. Easy. Delicious! Followed exactly but I might reduce the vanilla in the frosting next time.

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
Not a fan of making homemade brownies since they are usually a little tedious to make. This went quick with a FANTASTIC result. I did use a dark pan and reduced the temp to 325 for 26 mins. Great recipe.

Honey Coconut Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
The flavors just did not mesh well. The thought was good. The butter was WAY too much even at 1/2 cup, which is what I reduced it to. The cooking time seemed about right to me with a quick shot under the broiler to crisp it up. I love coconut but I think in this case it would be better without it. Just use the glaze and it might be a 4 star.

Raspberry Trifle

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
I give this four because I think there is room for improvement but overall a GREAT recipe. I used two low fat cream cheese and a mascarpone cheese. Also, the pound cake freshly baked is a much better idea, it only takes a few minutes to mix it and it's worth the time. Made mine with 3 tubs of frozen strawberries and then used freshly sliced strawberries on top for decoration. I left the sugar as it stated since there was already additional sugar in frozen strawberries. (I would have used raspberries but strawberries are much cheaper here!)

Continental Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I changed this up a bit to accomodate what I had but I am grading it based on what is here. The basil added a nice touch and the butter made for a creamy texture. Loved it. (I used regular brown rice, fresh mushrooms, 1/2 c onion, once stick of celery, mixed veggies and bouillion cubes. It was FABULOUS. Sauteed the onion and garlic first. Added and sauteed basil and celery. Added water and cubes, brought to boil and added rice. When rice was just short of being done added mushrooms and frzn veggies and cooked until done.)

Brown Jug Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
My kiddos (5, 3 and 2) love this soup and so does hubby. I did sautee my onions and celery with one clove of garlic before adding it to the soup. I also added a bay leaf while it simmered. I did not use the broccoli instead I used two 12oz bags of mixed veggies. I would have given it 5 without these changes but for personal preference will do it the same next time as well.

Party Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
This is perfect for a little comfort food. I used butcher quality dried beef so it was a little less salty and I think made it much, much better.

Wisconsin Native's Beer Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
Good. I used frozen veggies to save some time. Good mix of flavors. Used Summit Extra Pale since I wanted to tone down the beer flavor.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
This is really good. It wasn't greasy or mushy. It was very firm and didn't crumble in spaghetti.

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Very sweet. I was in the mood for something very sweet but it was almost too sweet. I used white cake, a box of vanilla instant pudding and about 1/3 cup of oatmeal. I also added 1/3 bag mini chocolate chips which added to the too sweet aspect. Balled them and flattened as you would with a peanutbutter cookie. Stuck a whole walnut on top because I like walnuts but the family doesn't. Very good. Very sweet, I would cut back the chocolate chips or just add nuts next time.

Sausage Egg Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
Made this "unhealthy" because that's the way I cook :) 7 large eggs instead of 1 1/2 cup of substitute, pork sausage (one pack of breakfast sausages, casing removed). Turned out great. Served it at my 3 year old's birthday. One without peppers and one with. Side note: 16 oz of Cottage Cheese equaled 2 cups.

Corn and Crab Bisque

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
I followed the recipe almost exactly. I didn't have half and half or any heavy cream. So, I added about 3 Tablespoons of cream cheese and WOW! It was super good, but maybe a little too thick so I would use a little less cream cheese next time. I added it to the food processor.

Curried Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I have made this for 2 or 3 parties and it has always gone over very well. I use the coconut milk for 2 cups of the broth and olive oil instead of veg oil. I omit the salt and use cilantro for the topping with sour cream and whipping cream.

Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I am giving this only 4 stars because I think the quantity of parsley is WAY over what it should be. I only added 2 T and it was more than adequate. I also switched out the veggies to 1 small can of whole corn and 1 regular can of peas for personal preference. Probably would only use 1/2 to 3/4 of a can of peas next time. Overall, excellent flavor, just watch it with the parsley.

Cinnamon Streusel Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I thought this was a great recipe WITH orange zest added. I zested a tangerine actually, and then used the juice from it as my juice and added undiluted concentrate to make the full half cup. I also used whole wheat flour and some molasses because I used the whole wheat and had no brown sugar. I didn't add the topping, to save on calories, and it was still great.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
Really liked it. I didn't think I would but I've been trying to expand my menu and was really impressed. In addition to ingredients, I added about 1 cup of asparagus, left out 1/2 of the shrimp and served over noodles. Used frozen shrimp (thawed).

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
Caution!!! Makes a HUGE loaf. Use the pan size recommended or half the recipe. This loaf is more about 20 servings. It is DELICIOUS and I am making it again tonight as written (but halved). The onion is good and cooks fine in there so go ahead and add it, finely chopped.
