Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
I made both the dough and the icing and just like a previous review stated, the portions are perfect. No leftover cookies or icing. That's awesome! Review of the cookie: sticky! I was making this to do w/ the kids and they were very excited to use the cookie cutters. No time to refrigerate so I just slowly added more flour. Problem solved. The flavor of the dough was a tad bland but that's because of the added flour. I did loved the softness and moistness of the cookie. Review of the icing: Very sweet but it worked well considering the blandness of the cookie. It was easy to put in ziploc bags and pipe onto the cookies and it does harden a little bit to where you can stack the cookies. Added peppermint extract to the icing to add more flavor and it was a great addition!

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2013
It's perfect just as written. Great texture and it's not too sweet. It's going to be my go-to icing recipe from now on!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
My go-to icing recipe for sugar cookies. It's easy to decorate with, sets up stiff enough to stack and actually tastes pretty good, too. I like using this a lot more than royal icing. I will never use royal icing again. This is so much better!

Onion Dijon Crusted Catfish

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
The mustard and onion flavors were way too overpowering in this recipe. Next time I will use sweet onion instead of yellow onion and add some mayo to cut back on the mustard flavor. I see the potential in this one so I won't give up on it!

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This gets 5 stars for the flexibility of the recipe to add whatever the heck you want in it and for being a healthy after school snack alternative for my kids!

Mint Chicken

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
This was so delicious! I did adjusting though and used olive oil instead of margarine, added 3 cloves garlic and I had to season it w/ salt and pepper or else it was too bland. I definitely used less than 1/4c lemon juice, too. I think that would have been way too much. I served it w/ some fried rice that I made w/ more mint, onions and garlic. Yum!

Kim's Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
Pretty non-spectacular but not horrible at all. I made it all as written and wasn't too happy with it, it was a tad bland. Added some lemon juice and red pepper flakes and it perked it right up. It works when you're in a time pinch.

Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
I liked this! I didn't use the exact measurements, though so my rating might not be too accurate. I used less sausage, less water, more celery and carrots and I added onion and seasoning. It came out thicker and more chili-like which I enjoyed. Next time I will use more liquid and see if I like it more soupy. Thanks for this great recipe!

Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Pretty good! I forgot to buy fresh parsley and parmesan cheese so maybe that is the difference between my 4 star rating and a 5 star.

Light and Creamy Brown Sugar and Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
Delicious! I hate overly sweet butter cream frosting so I was looking for something light for my decadent chocolate cupcakes and this was perfect! It had great cocoa flavor but was nice and light. It's definitely a keeper! I also added gelatin to stabilize it and help make it last but I really think it didn't even need it.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Very delicious!!! I only had 1/2c cream and the rest I used whole milk which is what I had on hand. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for this keeper.

Spinach and Rice Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
So awesome! I added mushrooms because I had them and we love mushrooms and I served them with some garlic shrimp. It was so amazing especially for such few and easy ingredients!

Taylor's Piroshki

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
This was very time consuming with some disappointing results. I think partly due to the recipe and partly due to user error. The dough is good but the filling really lacked flavor and moisture. I also baked these instead of frying so maybe that made a difference. We're gonna try to make again with different filling.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
I thought the recipe needed more of a banana flavor. I love banana muffins bursting with banana and this just hints to it. I don't know if it were my particular bananas, or if I need to increase the amount in the recipe. Still good, though! My family enjoyed them.

Barbeque Style Braised Short Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
Not bad but not good enough to make again. It was a little too sweet for me with just a one note flavor: barbecue sauce. The meat was tender and delicious but the sauce was not my thing.

Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
I rate this recipe 3 stars as written. I added mushrooms and bell peppers to my meat and I rolled in spring roll wrappers. I also baked them instead of frying. I dipped them in a ketchup/mayo dip and they tasted awesome!
