Tuna Noodle Supreme

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
As with most recipes on this site I took the advice of some other reviewers and added 1 cup of frozen broccoli and 1 cup chopped brussels(both cooked) as well as some Season All, Garlic Powder, and Old Bay (for seafood)spices. I also uncovered the dish and added a cup of shredded Cheddar cheese the last 5 minutes. (this made the noodles crunchy on the top which I like) The end result was WONDERFUL! It was very creamy and filling. I will definitely add this one to my recipe box. Thanks!

Sweet and Spicy Marinade for Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
I was skeptical of this recipe because I have never heard of marinading steak in vanilla extract, but I'm glad I went with it anyway because the end result was a nice change, and very yummy! After reading another reviewer's response I decided to marinade my steak with this recipe and my husband's with another marinade, but he did try mine and said it was good! I'll be using my leftovers for steak and eggs for breakfast tomorrow, thanks for the recipe :-D

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
These were great I gave them 4 stars because the recipe itself was a great starting place but I did make some changes. First I brought the eggs to room temp by placing them in warm water and used evaporated milk instead of regular milk so there was no heating needed. I proofed the yeast before adding the milk mixture to it and then added the flours (1 c bread, 1 c wheat, 1 1/4 c AP) to that. I used the other 1/4 c AP flour during kneading, which I did by hand. I took the advice of another reviewer and let the dough rise once (for an hour) before dividing it and then let it rise again. Half of them I flattened for buns, 3 I added oatmeal and sunflowers to (for breakfast roll), and 3 I added melted butter and garlic salt (for dinner). THEY ARE WONDERFUL! I've had one at every meal since I made them (great for making little pizzas on!) :-D (and the hubby loves them too!) Will def. make these before buying buns/rolls again. THANKS!

Easy Vegetarian Red Beans Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
I have made this twice and both times it's been great! We have been using beans in place of meat to save on the grocery bill and honestly, we don't miss the ground beef in the recipe! I love that the two of us can eat off of it for a few days then freeze the rest for later in the month for a quick lunch/dinner and it thaws just fine. Thanks! Changes: Omit Gruyere Cheese- topped with Mozzarella, soaked and boiled kidney beans instead of canned, 8 oz container of cottage cheese mixed with pasta sauce to layer with as well

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
This was a great dessert to accompany the pizza theme of my dinner party last night. The only change I made was adding a splash of vanilla to the cream cheese.I topped it with strawberries and choc. sprinkles instead of nuts. Next time I make this, I will take my husband's suggestion and add mint extract to the chocolate pudding to give it a little more pizazz :-D

Crunchy Tuna Turnovers

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
My husband and I absolutely loved these! I'm thinking of trying this same idea with ham and cheese and other deli meats...you have your sandwhich and your "side" of chips all in one! The only change I made was accidental! (I had canned olives on hand and they turned out to have jalapeno in them..which added some more flavor) One thing my husband did mention is that he liked these better the next day slightly warmed.(we took them on a picnic)"There's just something about "hot" tuna that doesn't seem right," he said..so don't worry they're still good the next day! Thanks for the recipe :-D

Cottage Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
This was my second attempt at meatloaf and it greatly redeemed me! I took the advice of others and added minced garlic, worchestershire sauce, and some milk. The loaf was very moist and my husband was impressed with the ketchup/brown sugar glaze!! (I omitted the mustard) I'll def. make this again (and may try the sauce on some chicken.

Angela's Oriental Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I thought this was a good starter recipe. It was a little bland so I did some things to add flavor but it was still lacking something. I liked that it was a one dish meal that I could prepare while juggling the kiddo and the housework, and will definitely make it again with a few extras (chicken broth instead of water, garlic, onion, maybe some of those little corn on the cobs...and some other seasonings)

Golden Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Awesome! I made half of them into crescent rolls and the other half into mini cinnamon rolls. Both are delicious right out of the oven.

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
I made the chocolate version of this cake because, at 7 months pregnant, I have been craving chocolate cake and was NOT disappointed! I took the advice of others and used veg. oil instead of shortening and sifted the flour and other dry ingredients twice. I also tossed in some instant vanilla pudding to the mix just to see what it would do. (I know store bought cakes advertise putting pudding mix in their batter so I figured, "why not?") This cake is my pride and joy! I have never baked a cake from scratch but, once paired with the Creamy Chocolate Frosting from this site and a glass of ice cold milk, I feel confident serving it to others. It will take a dire situation to push me to buy boxed cake mix again! I can't wait to try other variations of this recipe!

Carrot Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
This was a nice side dish. I took the advice of others and used a few sprinkles of Mrs. Dash. I didn't add cheese to half of it (my visiting dad doesn't like cheese) and didn't use as much as was called for but it was still good. I'll experiment with adding other veggies to the mix in the future (and will probably use cooking spray instead of butter next time). Thanks for the great idea! :-D

Greek Spaghetti

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
What a unique recipe...well at least my husband and I thought so! The only modifications I made were omitting the pimento (didn't have any on hand) and mixing all the ingredients together and then adding the mix to the pasta pasta, rather than add them one at a time. I figured it would be easier to get it thoroughly mixed this way. Next time (and that will probably be soon) I will add more cheese :-D Thanks!

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
Wow! These were great! I did make a few changes, basically because of what I had on hand: I didn't have zucchini so I subbed with shredded apples, Used applesauce instead of oil, 2 eggs, no nuts, and added some fresh squeeze orange juice...and when prepping I blended the dry with the wet then folded in the shredded apple, chocolate chips, and orange zest. I made 26 cupcakes instead of bread. Just sprayed muffin tins w/ nonstick spray and baked about 15 minutes. DELICIOUS!

Best Ever Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
My husband took one bite of these muffins and didn't stop raving until dinner was over! "That's what cornbread should taste like," he said. :-D The only modifications I made were cutting down the butter (2 tbs. b/c I ran out!)and sugar (4 tbs.) and milk(1/4 c) because I added a small can of cream corn. I also used 1 1/4 C Jiffy mix and 2/3 Corn meal, so it would taste more like cornbread than cake. This was a great recipe and I'm excited to try adding other ingredients to it. (My husband suggested chocolate chips, we'll see how it goes)Thanks so much!

Cheeseburger Pepper Cups

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
This was delicious! I only had 2 peppers but left the portions the same so I'll make this again for lunch soon! I added some diced tomato, sliced mushroom, and black olive to the skillet I found it difficult to mix all the ingredients thoroughly in the skillet so I transfered it to a mixing bowl which helped. Other than that everything was great...and very tasty! Thanks :-D

Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I didn't use all the brown sugar and used all butter (no shortening), but they came out well. I also used chocolate chip/ mint chips and added some green food coloring and they were delicious. The only issue I had was finding the right cook time. The first batch was a little underdone.

Fluffy Carrot Muffins with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
This is a great recipe as is I'm sure, but I did make some modifications based on my mood/preference. 1) I used 1/2 AP and 1/2 Whole Wheat Flour 2) I used 1/2 c veg. oil and subbed the rest using ground flax seed with cinnamon (yay fiber) 3) Added raisins and walnuts to mix 4) Used a little less sugar, not sure how much just "eyed" it 5) Added a few shakes of all spice. I also made a few mini muffins so I could snack while the big ones cooled. :-D I didn't prepare the frosting since I'm pregnant and want to attempt to control myself (I knew I'd be eating as many of these as I could before my husband got to them so I figured I'd skip the extra sugar.) They taste great straight from the oven although I will experiment with freezing a few of these. *If you double this recipe, you won't regret it!* Thanks!!

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
This was phenomenal! I didn't really follow the exact measurements for each ingredient, just looked at the list and added a splash and a dash here and there. The hubby said it was "awesome" and was sad that fish doesn't seem to keep well overnight once cooked :-( (I served this with mashed sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli/squash. It looked great on the plate and tasted even better!) Thanks so much!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
I love these cookies! I made a batch Monday...it is now Thursday and there is one left. As I type this there is a 1/2 batch of dough chilling in the freezer with the last morsels of chocolate chips I had. These are great! Once you get the cook time down they are a cinch. The only changes I made were to add 1/2 package instant vanilla pudding and subbed 1/4 c wheat flour for the white. :-D Thank you SO much for ending my search for the best choc. chip cookie!!
