Easy French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
This is a perfect quick meal for those nights when you dont have a lot of time. A nice simple recipe, that was really tasty. I didn't change anything, but it could easily be doctored up with spices or different cheeses and maybe some onions to change it up every now and then. Thanks for the recipe!

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
Excellent cookie. These cookies have turned out great each time I made them. The only change I make is not adding pecans. Otherwise a nice chewy but yet not too chewy cookie. Great flavor. Oh I have also combined semi sweet chocolate chipss with the white as my kids prefer the brown to the white.

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
easy and tasty way to prepare asparagus. I like the change from steamed. However, a tip when you saute asparagus that wasn't mentioned in the recipe - the smaller (thinner) the stalk the better it is for sauteing. Larger stalks are better suited for steaming. And 10 minutes I found much too long, since the butter needs to heat up quite high to saute I think 10 minutes would of burned it or the garlic. I sauted for 5 minutes.

White Velvet Cutouts

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
Perfect! I was looking for a cutout like I use to make with my Mom. Not a sugar cookie recipe and this was it! In my opinion this type of cookie is perfect for icing and frosting of the cookies. It makes a nice balance of not too sweet. I used the sugar cookie icing on this site and I also make a regular type frosting, for more frosted typed cookies. Thanks for the recipe

Glazed Apple Cream Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Excellent!! This recipe will be my regular apple pie recipe. This was my first time trying a cream type apple pie and I now prefer it over the traditional version. I used 2 granny smith and 2 honecrisp apples. Otherwise all other ingredients remained the same.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
I followed recipe exactly, except for doubling it and making it in a 9x13 pan. I was skeptical after reading reviews that it wasn't going to turn out since some had problems with the carmael layer and it wasn't clear about the layering if it should be cooled or not. The caramel layer was nice and firm yet still soft enough. I did cook slower on a lower heat and stirred constantly and then checked with the water method. I chilled each layer before adding the next and also before cutting. I was quite pleased with the look and overall balance of shortbread to sweetness of this dessert. I took it to a party that night and everyone really enjoyed them. I highly recommend them.

Peanut Blossoms II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
Great recipe, they turned out perfect. I kept the cookies small and they didn't crack as much and all stayed together. This recipe is a staple cookie recipe in our house.

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
Very flavorfull, the bacon makes this dish excellent. I will keep this recipe as my main potato salad. The bacon stayed crisp for quite a long time, but make sure its extra crispy when you cook it (not burnt) I used thick sliced bacon. My only change was scallions in place of onions.

Italian Subs - Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
EXCELLENT! If you like true italian tasting sub sandwiches, this recipe is it. I used all the meats called for in this recipe for authentic italian taste. My only change was romaine lettuce chopped instead of the red leaf as that is what I had on hand. I also broiled the sandwich slightly with the cheese before adding the dressing/lettuce. The dressing was very tasty! My kids dont care for the capacola so the 2nd time I made them I left it off of theirs and they like it better that way. This is a keeper!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
My entire family loved this meal. They are picky eaters and Im always trying to find recipes that "hide" veggies and taste good, this was perfect for the spinach. I added grilled chicken and used fresh garlic, parm cheese, and onion. **Update 11-07-07** I needed a fast recipe so I made this again, but didn't have spinach and I used barilli 3 cheese tortellini. It was still very good and tasty. It did lose a little something without the spinach but still good. Last time I used regular pasta and I think a cheese tortellini was much better.

Pumpkin Roll Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
This is a great pumpkin roll. Even my kids will eat this. I do not make it on wax paper as it has tended to smoke in the oven. I use parchment paper and that seems to work very well.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2007
Excellent quick and easy recipe. If you want a quick cinnamon roll recipe this is perfect. It was 90 minutes start to finish and the only thing I did add was a cream cheese frosting when finished. I preferred it without the frosting but my kids have more of a sweet tooth than me. I also used butter in place of margarine.

Oatmeal Carmelitas

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
This was a really nice cookie/bar recipe. I did double the crust ingredients to make a 13x9 pan and left the topping ingredients the same. It was time consuming in regards to having it set up to cut. I originally was going to make these for a cookie exchange (11doz) but considering how much time was needed to have these cool and set up I decided against it. It is a great recipe though.

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This was a nice salad, but next time I will use less vinegar and a bit more oil.

Garlic Cheese Flatbread

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
4 stars for a great flat bread but I felt this recipe needed more flavor. I made it twice. Both times the dough came out perfect. Someone mentioned that this dough should be a "wet" dough and sticky and not to add more flour. That advice was perfect. I just made sure I had enough flour to roll with and on my hands so it wasn't to hard to work with. The first time I made it I put in 2 cloves of crushed garlic in the dough while kneeding it instead of using the powder and it wasn't enough. It was still a nice flat bread. The 2nd time I added 4 cloves and used about 1tbs of garlic powder and it was more flavorful I also left the cheese off until it was about a minute from being done and I brushed it with butter and then put on the cheese and cooked one minute and took it out of oven and let it melt while it rested. I liked it much better that way, then what the original recipe calls for.

Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I am rating the filling for this recipe as I didn't use the shell part. I took someone else's suggestion and used a pie crust. I had ready made pie crust in the fridge already so I used a glass and cut circles out and formed them into the mini muffin pan and then added the filling. I have tried other crust recipes for these type of tarts and I have yet to find a good one that doesn't bulk up too much, so the pie crust worked out well. The filling was super tasty.

White Bean 'n' Ham Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I rate this recipe a 4, because it was a good start but I felt it needed more. I made the following changes. I used a left over ham bone and cooked that in half water/half chicken broth and cooked for 1 hr. Then added veggies, beans and spices (added garlic) and cooked another hr and then removed ham bone and added ham pieces along with 4 chopped potatoes. I let this cook pretty much all day. I didn't mash the beans since it cooked all day it thickened up nice especially with the starch from the potatoes. It had a nice smoky ham flavor. It was even better the next day

Cranberry Gelatin Salad II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
This was pretty good, but to me more like a dessert than a salad because of the sweetness.

Apple Turnovers

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
I wish I would of made a double recipe. My kids ate them up way too fast. I did end up cutting them in half after they were baked to get two smaller sized pastries instead of the big size. I tried to make them smaller to start but they were too hard to get enough apples in and seal. I chopped my apples in smaller chunks so I didn't have to worry so much about the dough ripping. They did leak, but didn't affect them any. I did use the glaze but for me it was too much (sweet) and I prefer it without. My kids didn't mind ;) Overall 4 stars and a keeper quick dessert recipe.
