Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
Super yummy! The yellow squash (and everything else) from my garden is starting to come in now, and we just came home from a week at camp to find tons of it! So this fit the bill as an awesome side dish with pesto pasta for dinner. The only change I made was adding a little of my cilantro also.

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
Amazing! This recipe is exactly like the way my mom used to fix them so that Dad could throw them on the grill with whatever meat we were having. Very easy, but so simple and delicious! The grill just does something to the potatoes, almost sweetens them I think, and makes them incredible! I made them for dinner tonight with our chicken and my gang all loved them!

Gary's Turkey Burritos

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I made these a couple of weeks ago for dinner and with the exception of my four-year-old, we all loved them! I used Rotelle tomatoes in place of the hot tomato sauce like another reviewer suggested, simply because I already had them. I also used refried black beans with lime! Yum! Definitely will be making these again!

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Great marinade! I used a stout for this, and I think the super dark beer worked best with the sweet brown sugar. This made two absolutely delicious, tender sirloin steaks that the family loved. Thanks Craig for the recipe!

Sugar Cookies VIII

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
These are amazing sugar cookies, especially if you are looking for a traditional, buttery sweet cookie with no frills. This recipe makes old-fashioned, delicious, soft cookies. One tip in making these come out great: rather than drop them onto your baking sheet using spoons or a scoop as you would with chocolate chip cookies, roll them into 1 1/2 inch balls, then roll through a small bowl of white sugar, then place on the baking sheet. This makes them perfect!

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
The quintessential banana cream pie! I have made this one a few times now and will not use another recipe. This is good, old-fashioned pie from scratch, no boxed pudding!!! Incredibly yummy!

Honey Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Very good barbecue sauce. I did heat it on low until all ingredients were smooth and blended, then I removed it from the heat and left it in the saucepan until I was ready to use it. I put this on chicken drumsticks, and the family loved it! Left ingredients as is except for using steak seasoning (which has lots of pepper and spices in it) in place of the seasoning salt and tenderizer, since I didn't have them. Turned out spicy-sweet and very yummy!

Hearty Oatmeal Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
I don't own a bread machine, nor do I want one, but I've gotten pretty good at adapting bread machine recipes to make the bread by hand. I started by warming the milk and applesauce (it is what I had so I used it) together in a measuring cup on high for about 1-2 minutes in the microwave, or until the mixture reached 115 degrees. Then I added the yeast directly to this and let it rest for a few minutes. I then added 1/2 C. of all-purpose flour and 1/2 C. whole wheat flour, the oats, , sugar, oil(instead of the shortening), and 3 T powdered gluten and mixed on medium for 2 minutes to a thick batter. I then added the salt and another 1 C. of whole wheat flour and mixed for one more minute. Then I changed to the dough hook, added the rest of the flour until kneaded about halfway, then finished kneading by hand. I let rise for one hour, punched down, then put it in my greased bread pan and rose for about 40 minutes more (until about an inch above pan) and then baked at 350 for 35 minutes. Yummy, soft, and great texture, great for sandwiches!!! I will use this one again! This is a good recipe even if you don't own a bread machine!

Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
Yum! I made this pie when my parents and sister came over for a visit, and they were all amazed that this was made with frozen berries. I used two bags, one a mixed package containing blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, and the other all raspberries. Great pie!

Teriyaki Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I was amazed at how good the marinade/sauce with this stir-fry was. I have tried other similar stir-fries on this site, and the one thing I am always a bit dissapointed with is the flavor (or lack of) in the sauces. That was not the case this time! This dish is all around delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except for adding lots of extra veggies. Also, I used pork tenderloin that I sliced very thinly, and it came out soooo well. I will use this one again! Thanks for the recipe!

Cinnamon Streusel Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
These are the new favorite muffin in my house!!! They are so delicious and moist, and I will be making them again and again. I made a total of two changes to the recipe: I used half whole wheat flour (because I feel that something I eat for breakfast should be fairly healthy) and I didn't have buttermilk, so instead I used the same amount of light sour cream. Delicious!!!

Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Yum! I'm almost finished with my Easter cookie platters, and at the last second, I decided I needed to add more chocolate and a bar cookie, and this filled both requirements! Since I was making them for the first time, I decided to stick to the original recipe, with the exception of the chocolate- I added a whole bag of those. I didn't have any trouble with the toffee as some other reviewers said, and in fact I think I boiled it a bit longer than one minute and it came out great. Next time I will add more toffee! Thanks for the recipe ladies!

French Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
This is my standard Italian/French bread. I make it whenever I require either, just shaping the loaves a bit differently in either case. This does need a bit of sugar added to it. I add about 1 1/2 t. to the warm water before adding the yeast, then I allow the yeast to proof for a few minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients. I have a French bread pan from Williams Sonoma also, so between this recipe and my pan, I ALWAYS get perfect bread from this! The last time I made this, I added about 2 t. Italian seasoning, a little black pepper, and about 2 t. rosemary (like Jo's Rosemary Bread from this site, which I love but it tends to get soggy after resting), and it handled the herbs very well and was delicious!!!

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
This is pretty much your standard buttercream frosting for cookies, and it decorated well and dried hard, but not too hard. Nice consistency.

Cream Wafers

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
My mom used to make these years ago out of an older Betty Crocker cookbook that she swears by, and I was happy to see them on here as well. I made these as another pretty addition to my Easter cookie trays; I used a small flower-shaped cutter and then tinted the frosting in Spring colors! If a cookie can truly "melt-in-your-mouth", these are as close as you'll ever get! Yum!

Emily's Famous Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
Delicious chocolatey cookie! I did take the advice of other reviewers and increased the cocoa for my double batch by 1/2 C and decreased the flour by the same. These turned out wonderfully, and it's too bad I'm selling them, because my kids can't keep their hands off of them!

Mrs Espy's Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This was my first time making enchilada sauce myself. I'm not sure why, really, since I make nearly everything from scratch, but with this sauce I normally just grab a can at the grocery store. Not anymore! This was so easy to make, I always have chili powder around, and it tasted better than the store-bought stuff anyway! One tip for anyone making enchilada sauce for the first time, the recipe states to "salt and pepper and garlic powder to taste". Be fairly liberal, because this does require a decent amount of these things. I used probably 3/4 t. salt, 1/2 t. pepper, and about 1 t. garlic powder. Also, after simmering, I thought this could be a little bit thicker, so I added about 1/2 T. of tomato paste. This was so good and made awesome chicken enchiladas! I can't wait to eat the leftovers!

Sausage, Zucchini and Two Pepper Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
Yum! I doubled this, so that there would be plenty to feed a family of four and produce leftovers for my hubby! I made a couple minor changes: First, I used Chardonnay instead of the Marsala wine because it is what I had. Second, I left out the peas since my hubby is allergic. We loved this! Great recipe!

Black 'n' White Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
These were very good bars, but I only gave them four stars because there is just TOO much chocolate and not enough cheesecake layer! I only made one change to these out of necessity, and that was using vanilla wafer crumbs instead of graham crackers crumbs. I started melting the chocolate and butter and then realized the kids ate most of the graham crackers and I didn't have enough!!! Luckily, I had an entire box of the wafers, and they worked just fine! I will try these again with less chocolate, more cheese, next time! :)
