Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
These are excellent! so delicious. I followed the other reviewers' advice and used 3/4 c peanut butter but I'm not sure you need to because they were REALLY peanut buttery (which I love, but I can see why it was originally written for less). I made them using the pampered chef big scoop and 9 minutes was perfect on a silpat mat but I thought the cookies were too big for the hersheys kisses I put on top so I switched to a smaller scoop. At this size, 8-9 minutes max and they were great!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
This is a really good base recipe (with turning the heat down to 375) but so much depends on the size of the sprouts. I had a crazy assortment of sizes and the small ones cooked up great in 30 mins, but the larger ones weren't done so I had to put them back in (at 350 so they didn't burn too much). if they are not cooked all the way, they are not that good, but fully done? YUM! Also, I think adding some shallots and toasted nuts would MAKE this dish something extra special.

Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
AH-MAZING! I was skeptical that this would be anything special, but I was sooo wrong. It was so terrific that I'm going to make it again and again! I didn't have ginger and ran short on cinnamon so I added a tsp of vanilla. I also took the other advice and added 1cup of oatmeal to the topping. Definitely use a FULL 6 cups of apples because they cook down so much. YUM!

Oven Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
I don't know what I did wrong, but these did not crisp up at all! They still tasted delicious, but were just soft. I turned down the heat to 425 as one reviewer said, but the bottom still was a little burnt. Also, I think you should turn them halfway through cooking (which I didn't, but I think would have helped).

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
These turned out great! I used a pound of tenders and eggs instead of butter (ups the protein and decreases calories). But, I have to warn you that this makes WAY too much coating. I could have easily done 2 or 3 pounds of tenders.

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Really yummy! I used black strap molasses instead of the corn syrup and it definitely helped the flavor. Skipped the orange because we don't like that.

Olive Puffs

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
These were so cute! taste was pretty good with the cheddar, but still needs something. I think I'll add some finely chopped sundried tomatoes next time. Also, keep the pastry partially frozen when you start to make it easier to cut the strips (just soft enough to unfold). My pastry was 9" wide, so the recipe made 18 sets of eyes (and 10" long strips).

Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Got great compliments!! the adults all loved this but the kids wouldn't touch it, I think because it was a little spicy for them. Used 1 Tbsp dried rosemary instead of fresh. Used all the marinade when cooking. Came out perfect.

Browned Butter Vegetables with Almonds

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
yummy! used the veggies listed with just a little salt, 4 tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp olive oil. No spices, but I had seasoned garlic almonds. Delicious! I pre-steamed the broccoli & cauliflower for 2 minutes in the microwave and then sauteed them to perfection.

Baked Salmon with Herbs

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
my husband really liked this! I used frozen (thawed) salmon so it cooked in 7-9 min. Then, I broiled it for another 2 to make the top crispy. I used only 1/2 cup of italian breadcrumbs, 2 cloves garlic, and 1/8tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp parsley. I also just used 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp butter.

Quick Italian Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
amazing, restaurant-quality soup!!! I used veg bouillon cubes,just one zucchini, and added a can of garbanzos and 1/2 cup orzo. I had to add 1 c water too, but the flavor is excellent. Save time by using frozen chopped onion, celery, and green pepper.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
My husband liked this recipe. I just poured the marinade over the fish (forgot to wait an hour) and baked it for 15 minutes and it was done! I guess the fillets were pretty thin (and previously frozen).

Make-Ahead Spinach Manicotti

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Love this recipe! I always forget to make it the night before, so I just make it the same day and it turns out just fine. Also, I cook it covered with foil for the first 30 minutes and then uncover for 15 min. So easy! Stuff the filling into a ziploc and snip & fill the shells. I even use slightly less sauce (but I use a garlic and onion flavor one) and add more spices. Yum!

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Good, but too much topping. I skipped the white sugar entirely and liked the oatmeal cookie taste, but there was just way too much of it for 3 cups of apples. Plus, the topping is very heavy and thick (not crumbly). I still loved the flavors, I'd just use more apples next time.

Sausage Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
fool-proof! I made this with veggie sausage patties (cut up one pkg morningstar) and 1 can chopped mushrooms, 1/2 chopped onion, and 8 oz sharp cheddar (plus another cup on top before baking). I didn't make it the night before (just in fridge about an hour and a half) and totally forgot to mix in the melted butter to the flour mixture until it was already all mixed, but I threw in the butter anyway. Baked loosely COVERED with foil for the first 40 min and then uncovered last 10 min. Turned out perfect!!! All of my guests loved it and many asked for the recipe. Plus, they had no idea it was vegetarian until I told them. Excellent!

Spoiled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Great! made these for a party (double recipe) and got tons of compliments. My husband was skeptical about boiling them so long, but he changed his mind after tasting them. They were perfect and not too soft.

Ultimate Frozen Strawberry Margarita

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Awesome! Best strawberry margarita, by far. Just make sure the strawberries and sauce are pretty melted. Mine were too frozen and with the ice and frozen concentrate, the blender wouldn't turn enough and the drinks came out too thick. Next batch was perfect after the strawberries had defrosted.

Ramen Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
I used a bag of cole slaw mix and added a handful of almonds and dried cranberries. Only used 1/4 c sunflower seeds (plenty). It turned out really delicious! My only complaint is that it was too oily. Next time, I'll cut down on the oil. I also used half sesame oil and half olive oil - awesome!
