Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
Followed the recipe to a T. Crackers and caramel and chocolate is completely stuck to my cookie pan. I put it in the deep freezer for 15 minutes desperate to freeze this batch and then break it off frozen. NO GO. This is totally stuck to my favorite pan. It tastes great! But line your pan somehow, seriously!!! Or you'll end up like me, disappointed and now with a ruined pan. :(

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
I just made this... and holy cow this is amazing. I checked out other comments and did what a lot of people suggested, which was mash up the banana. So I did that rather than sliced. The other change I made, is I used whole wheat flour rather than white flour. It came out perfect. It is very dense, perfectly sweet bread. I think next time I might just try replacing white sugar with brown but that's it. Oh yeah, and I sprinkled even more walnuts on top of the bread right before baking... it looks nice that way and you can't get too many walnuts ^_^

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Holy... LORD! Ever since I was little, there was this tiny breakfast house in Lake Tahoe that my pop would take me to for breakfast right before school time. This place had the world's greatest biscuts and gravy ever known to man... Well I live in the bay area now and have never had any luck finding primo biscut and gravy breakfast... until I found this recipe! It's so simple and thick and amazing!! I make this all the time for my family! Thank you for sharing this! note: it's all about the sausage you pick so choose wisely because it can really make the flavor what it is... but this is good stuff and makes a lot :)

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Thanks for sharing! I made these and followed the recipe to the "t" and honestly these are perfect for a hearty grab n go breakfast. Pros: Healthy and a great grab and go breakfast or even a great snack in the afternoon with some coffee. These were dense muffins and really tasted great and filled you up. Cons: A little on the squishy side. I think it might be too much applesauce. They came out very sticky and a little mushy on the inside. Next time I might cut back on the applesauce a tad or try a banana like some have suggested instead. Overall, I am definitely making these again :) perhaps, right now! :D

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Ok, I followed this to the t... it was amazing! I loved it a lot and my husband could NOT stop eating this. Hahahaha... my only recomended change would be... DON'T USED CANNED SPINACH. I used canned spinach from safeway and it just tasted so odd. I drained it, but it still seemed really mushy after I cooked this and it had a really... really metalicy grassy flavor... like... I pulled spinach straight out of an ocean or something. LOL... I'm not a cook by any means and the rest of this recipe is amazing and I will DEFINITELY make this again... but next time I might just try cooking my own spinach up first then using that.. .or frozen spinach. Because the canned stuff was a little overpowering in taste... and not goo taste. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Weekend Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
I like this a lot! It's really simple and tastes great. My b/f and I are always in a rush in the morning to get to work so we don't have time for the classic breakfast. I make this casserole every Sunday afternoon that way we have a quick "out-the-door" breakfast to enjoy throughout the week. I started experimenting and last Sunday replaced the Sausage with BEEF CHORIZO. Mmmm, it was a spicy change. Chorizo is a portugese sausage, really red, little spicy, but good. If you use Chorizo, be careful because it is really greasy! You need to drain it pretty well if you're worried about the fat. Chorizo also tends to be pretty "mushy" it won't turn out like chunky sausage, it appears as more of a thick meaty sauce. So to add more of a texture, I added small bits of diced ham. I cooked the ham and chorizo together in the frying pan so the ham can soak in some of the chorizo juices. It came out really well and my b/f asked me to use chorizo again for next weekend. ^^ thanks for the recipe, we love it!!

Crab Stuffed Manicotti

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
It was a really great dish and very fun!! I unfortunately didn't have manicotti shells so I just used manicotti!! It turned out great and after I followed this recipe I started to get creative... like replacing ricotta chz with mozzarella and a little mayo!! My boyfriend is a big garlic lover so I even mash in some fresh garlic ;) It's a great dish if you have some time on a lazy Sunday! Thanks for sharing :)
