Taco Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
my kids hate baked beans, but they liked this! They requested less beans next time and a little more taco seasoning, but all in all it was a hit! Update 3/11/08: Made this again and used hlf the amount of beans for the kids sake and it went over real big! Great quick recipe! Thanks!!!!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
These were fabulous!! I've never made onion rings at home like this! I didn't have a deep fryer, so I just put 2" or so of oil in my pot and used my digital probe thermometer to test the temp of the oil on the stove top. Crisp and crunchy and well worth the effort! :)

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
This was so good! I didn't have pecans, so I used walnuts and I left out the orange peel becuase, well, I didn't have any fresh oranges. It was still great! I was surprised that it didn't call for any spices, but it doesn't need it. The tartness of the cranberry's were complimented nicely by the sweetness of the bread. Not too sweet though. :) I baked mine in my pampered chef mini loaf stoneware pan that has 4 loaves in one pan. It took about 40 min and I had to cover it w/ foil the last 10 to prevent over browning. YUMMM! Hubby tood one of the loaves for breakfast...that's right, thw whole mini loaf. :)

Banana Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
I'm sort of up in the air as to how many stars to give this recipe. I went w/ 5 because when it comes down to it, I probably could have eaten half the pan and I like that the recipe only calls for one banana...unlike banana bread which usually calls for at least 3.It is a great alternative when you don't have that many around. I didn't make the frosting since I was out of bananas and the bars themselves taste pretty much like banana bread, only a little sweater. I did add about 1 tsp of banana extract along w/ the vanilla. Otherwise, I stayed true to the recipe. Very good!

Apple Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
My kids loved this and so did I!...even my hubby had a hard time NOT eating this! I don't know why I waited so long to try this super easy recipe. It was the first recipe I ever added to my box...so glad we tried this one!

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This is just really yummy. The steaks are tender and not too salty in my opinion. I didn't have cream o chicken, so I used 1 can cream o mushroom and 1 can cream o celery (both fat free). I used a fattier 80% lean ground beef cause it's all I had and it turned out great. I'm sure w/ the leaner meat it would be even better! Made nice gravy too! Will definitely make again!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
These were simply wonderful! An extremely comforting...and addicting cookie! Lovely w/ a cup of tea and so soft! I couldn't "roll" mine into balls. The batter is just to soft. So I shaped mine into ball-like mounds and then dampened the bottom of a glass w/ water and dipped in sugar and pressed them down slightly..not too thin. Then I sprinkile w/ just a touch more sugar and popped them in the oven. I had to stop myself from eating them! For a girl on WW, 3 pts per cookie is alot when you've had 3 cookies in one shot! ;)

Biscotti

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
I've never made biscotti before this and I truly had no clue what I was doing. While I was making it, I thought I would give this recipe 4 stars because it's not really a firm dough...so I wouldn't say you can form it into a log shape. I didn't divide the dough either and just piled it up on my cookie sheet on parchment and shaped it into a reasonable shape and patted it down w/ damp hands (thanks to the reviewer who suggested wetting your hands!). I added slivered almonds and was making this as a gift to go in a basket fullof other homemade goodies. I was praying it would turn out! Well, it did! I had some really good size biscotti in the end and the taste is amazing! I also omitted the anise (didn't have any) and replaced it w/ 3/4 Tbsp almond extract and 1/4 Tbsp vanilla. I cut w/ a pizza cutter while still warm (almost hot) and while I was cutting, I put my hand at the opposite end of the slab of biscotti and pushed my fingers against it to prevent the end pieces from braking off when the pizza cutter passed through. It worked great! Thanks for the great recipe! I'll be making it again very soon!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Scrumptious! I love the crumbly topping to the top and bottom of this dish! Who doesn't like that stuff? ;)I did doubel the curmb mixture because I didn't think that 1/2 was enough to cover the bottom of a 13 x 9. Even I have to admit though that doubling the crumble means you should have enough apples to stand up to it...otherwise it was fabulous!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Oh wow! I never like homemade chocolate frosting becuase it's just not chocolaty enough. This was sooo good! I used Ghirardelli Premium Baking Cocoa and only made 1/2 the batch for my cupcakes. I didn't use quite the full amount of milk since I wanted to decorate w/ it. I also added 1/4 cup of Mocha Almond Fudge International Delight liquid creamer. (I've made it w/o and it's just as good!)OH my goodness! The more you beat this, the creamier it gets and also increases in volume. This is also a nice crusting recipe. (Forms a crust when left out to sit but stays soft on the inside.) Cover when not using to prevent a crust from forming. :)

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Oh. I'm speechless. This was...sooo good! First of all, my children loved it (including my 12 month old who reapeatiedly said "mmmmm" with every bite). I didn't have chicken boullion granules and was conscerned about the amount of sodium if I used cubes, so I substituted chicken broth for the water in the same amounts and it was fabulous! Used the same amount of salt (kosher) as called for and added 1 bag of pre-cooked steam fresh corn per hubbies request (and a great request it was). I also used 1% milk because it's all I had and my conscerns of it not being thick or creamy enough were shot down completely! I bet you could use skim milk and it would still taste heavenly. It took my milk and flour/butter/flour mixture about 10 min to thicken instead of the 4-5 that the recipe states, but that was ok by me. I used about 4 cup potatoes cause that's what it worked out to be and about 2 cups of ham ( I think I'll add more next time...which will be tomorrow)! Thanks for the delicious, wonderful, too good for words soup!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
This recipe is wonderful! It tastes just as good, if not better, than Manwich and is cheaper to make. I don't always have the store bought on hand, but always have these ingredients! I used ground turkey and followed the recipe exactly. I covered it while "simmering", allthough I don't believe simmering is the word I would use. There isn't enough liquid for that...perfect though. We thought it had a similar sweetness to Manwich and I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for the great recipe!! :)

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
Great biscuits! Mine didn't rise quite as big as I hoped they would, but this could be due to the fact that I have a terrible eye for measurements. I think I rolled the dough a bit thinner than 3/4". Otherwise, I was very pleased and for once I didn't serve my family hockey pucks for dinner! Thanks for the great recipe. This will be a regular in my house!

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
This ice cream was great! I did add some really good quality white chocolate that I chopped up as well and it's fabulous! I also added 1/2 tsp vanilla, but I think next time I'll leave it out. It really doesn't need it. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
What a wonderful recipe! I cut down the sugar by half becuase I wanted a less sweet bread for sandwiches. It's amazing. The texture is fabulous and still has a nice very slight sweetness in the background. Thanks to all who recommended this one!!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
wonderful recipe! This was my first time making zucchini bread and followed the recipe as closely as I could. I realized I was low on oil, so used 1/2 oil & 1/2 apple sauce. Otherwise I didn't change a thing. It has a great flavor and my hubby called me from work to tell me it was great! He loved the walnuts too!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
I made these this morning for my children and they were wonderul. We like them crispier, so I kept them in the waffle iron a bit longer. I made a double batch so I would have left overs to frezze. I added chocolate chips upon my son's request and also cinnamon & 6 Tbsp sugar.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
Ok..I didn't quite have all the ingredients on hand, but I was craving tuna salad w/ a twist. So I made this w/ everything but the curry and onion flakes. I ran out of relish, so I took the sweet pickles I had a chopped them up. I also cut the mayo down to 4 Tbsp since I'm trying to watch my weight and used light mayo. And cut the cheese down a bit too....it's still wonderful. I'm sorry I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, but I'll be sure to get them this weekend and try it again. Thanks for the great recipe...even though I couldn't follow it completely!

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
Beautifully simple! Finally a morning treat that calls back to a time when simple flavors were appreciated. I made the recipe exactly as called for and it's perfect just the way it is. Not too sweet with wonderful simplicity. Thanks for the great recipe!

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
These were so easy to make and turned out delicious! They do make a slightly more dense bun, but not what I would consider too heavy. I used my KitchenAid to knead the dough and only did so for about 6 minutes. Next time I'll knead it for a little less to see if it yields a lighter bun. The taste was fabulous and I'll never go back to store bought again!
