Soft Chocolate Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
I am rating this a 5 even though I altered the recipe some (to accomodate for what I had on hand). It was a wonderfully soft and delicious cookie even the next day :) Thank you so very much for sharing this recipe. Now a new favorite of mine. It inspired a different variation from myself. I didn't have unsweetened chocolate so I used about 1/3 but probably should have went to a 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (just to give it more color: it was more the color of a choc chip cookie base) and I omitted the mint extract and used Andes Baking Mints instead. This cookie still was excellent and perfect with Andes. I can hardly wait to try it with the chocolate in it :) TYSVM I think this would be great without the chocolate and mint and instead use with receses pieces baking pieces or something similar also.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
I didnt make this exactly as written but it gave me the general idea of what to do finally! I have long tried to find the right sweetness to get a good frap. I finally have that thanks to you :) I can deter my hubby's daily Starbucks habit now :D lol. I made a frap using the following: 2 cups Strong Cold Coffee,Ice to desired thickness maybe 1 handful or two I used??? and 1/2 cup of Sweetened Condensed Milk. Blend until combined well. Making sure to get all those pieces of ice chopped up into fine bits of nothing :) I even melt about 1/3 Cup Andes Mint Baking Pieces along with 1 TBSP milk in the microwave and pour into the blender (you can also add choc syrup)and yummy a mocha mint coffee frap :) This was just absolutely wonderful. I never drink hot coffee but I love this stuff! Thank you for the inpsiration and I am sure your recipe is excellent as written but I didnt have the coffee beans on hand :)

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
Delicious. Our family of 6 enjoyed this meal. *Some things that I did to help speed things up for dinner time: Used one large pan and threw all of the butter,onions,garlic,seasonings,chicken (used boiled chicken from the day before that was refrigerated) into the pan all at once...Once everything was sauted I removed it from the pan and added my flour mixture to make the roux, then added the milk mixture and once the sauce had thickened I added the cheese mixture (I used mozzerella & Parm *what I had on hand*)once that melted and incorporated I added the chicken mixture back in and stirred until incorporated and then added the sour cream. I topped this with crushed Butter Crackers (ie: townhouse,ritz,etc) and if you're in a real hurry you can make this in the afternoon for sure (that's what I did) I just left it in the pan and reheat at dinner time by adding a touch of milk to loosen the mixture & thats when you boil the noodles and combine the mixture if desired or top the noodles with the mixture. I used macaroni noodles to make it easier for the kids. Definitely will make again. I served this with the Cheese Herb Bread on this site which complimented it very well. I did leave out the mushrooms (didn't have any) and replaced the italian seasoning (didn't have any) with Mrs.Dash onion & herb seasoning & 1 TBSP garlic powder, only used 3 boneless skinless breasts,no tomatoes (was out of them) and I replaced the Colby-Jack Cheese with Mozzerella (all I had on hand).

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
Very Good Recipe! My husband really enjoyed the flavor that the marinade created and said he's going to request this be made again soon. FYI: I didn't have any Sherry so Instead I used Pineapple Juice and added Pineapples to my marinade. It turned out wonderfully. The only thing I plan on doing next time is just doubling the recipe to cover the meat more. I soaked mine in the marinade for 48 hrs. Thank You for Posting this recipe :)

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Great recipe and honestly wasn't too hard to make with the help of my kitchenaid and the dough hook. I used bread machine yeast (all I had on hand)and it worked just fine for me. I also increased the raisins from 1 cup to 2 cups and am glad that I did. This would be great with a glaze as well. My husband made french toast with these yesterday and he said they were great tasting. I didn't get to try them but thought I'd mention that. Thank you for sharing the wonderfully easy recipe.

Manicotti Italian Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
Very Good and Simple Recipe! Thank you so much. My family all raved over this on Day 1 and Day 2 they wanted more (the leftovers). It was just as wonderful on the 2nd day along with some homemade rolls from a wonderful recipe on this site: Portuguese Sweet Bread I. I will be making this regularly. I changed a few things to our liking and to what we had on hand. I took the pepperoni and pulsed it in the food processor until I had little bits and I used breakfast sausage (what I had on hand) I also added onions (sauted with the meat), italian seasoning,garlic powder,salt & pepper. I also threw in some hot banana peppers that I pulsed in the food processor. Yummy! This was delicious :) Thanks again!

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Very Good! Husband raved over them. I know that if they had been on a grill they would have rocked but it was cold and I was looking for a good recipe for the oven and this was it. I had to make a homemade chile sauce since I didnt have any on hand and did not have rum (but used 1/2tsp rum exract) but hoping to make exactly as written next time minus the rum (personal choice). Very tasty. I enjoyed them more after they sat and rested and cooled off I think. The flavors seemed to have come together more at that point. Thank you for a great oven rib recipe!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
Excellent! Thanks SMDAILEY and KELLY for the tips on using the parchment paper & the additions. I ended up using an extra 1 cup of sugar and extra 1 tsp of vanilla extract thanks for the suggestions. We loved them. I also added 1 tsp lemon extract to the dough. I may try orange next time as well on some. It is just enough to give a subtle taste to this cookie. I used the Sugar Cookie Icing recipe on this site. It is a perfect compliment to this cookie. Thank you so very much for a fun day of baking.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
Oh Yum! What a delicious crust this was! My kids even said it was better than the pizza ordered out :) Thank you very much! I'm without a doubt keeping this one and btw...I froze 8 individual size pizza crusts (using double the recipe) w/wax paper in between each and as mentioned in other reviews this works wonderfully :) 1/2 tsp italian seasoning 1/4 tsp onion powder 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (The best and easiest way to add herbs is to mix them into the olive oil before you add it to the batter - that will ensure even distribution throughout the entire dough.) Next time I'm going to add the olive oil and garlic pwdr and or cayenne to the edges of the crust and sprinkle the pan with cornmeal (jiffy) to give it that perfect crisp bottom. I forgot this time but normally do that. However I will say this crust recipe is awesome and cooking it as it is I'm sure would still be just as great the seasonings just add another wonderful flavor dimension to the already great recipe :) Update: I make this pizza crust regularly in my house and it always is a hit. My family loves it and it is a permanent staple in our house :) TY again for such a wonderful recipe.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
A great alternative to regular chocolate chip cookies. We really enjoyed them and especially love that they do not spread out like some cookies do. I am more of a cookie lover of the crisp outside but soft/chewy inside but still enjoyed the cookie and would definitely make again. After sitting the cookie gets a little crispy but I would imagine if you threw in a slice of bread in a sealed container with the cookies that it'd help with that issue. We only have a few left lol so I am not concerned. I am just thankful for the great recipe.

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Excellent Soup! I loved the combination of flavors. It was perfect for a nice cold day. MMM MMM comfort food :) Thank you so much for the recipe. I adjusted it to feed 4 since my other kids are at school during our lunch time. The only thing that I did differently was add 2 slices of American Cheese and about a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese &thyme instead of parsley as that was what I had on hand. I also used 1 TSP of chicken bouillon granules instead of cubes. Will definitely make this again.

Chocolate Turtle Brownie Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Oh Wow! Yum! Yum! Where are the bakers? I can not believe this only had 2 reviews before mine. This is an awesome brownie :) If you are unsure don't be! This recipe is soooo simple and looks like it came from a bakery! The pecans were heavenly in this. I did not use caramel as I was out but I drizzled Hersheys Syrup right over the top and it was perfect! I did bake mine in a 9.5 inch glass pyrex pie pan instead of the spring form pan and it baked for around 40-45 minutes and came out perfect. What are you waiting for? This recipe is a keeper.

Grandpa Hubbard's Oatmeal

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
Very good. My kids ate seconds even. I used about 1/2 cup of powdered dairy creamer and 3/4 cup milk and added cinnamon and raisins and a touch more brown sugar and butter to the whole pot instead of doing it to portions and it tasted great. Creamy & flavorful. Thanks so much for this easily adaptable recipe. This would be great with any fruit. Updates: I used strawberries for a a strawberries and cream taste and it was delicious as well. I have used frozen mixed berries with great success as well. When I do not have the dairy creamer I have substituted using Milk or even powdered milk. This is the creamiest tasting oatmeal. I really enjoy it.
