Sweet Potato French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I've been making this recipe for a long time, it's in the Sneaky Chef cookbook. All three kids eat it without complaint, and it does taste good. The picky hubby however doesn't like it simply because you can see an orange color. I only use cinnamon and vanilla.

Super Bowl Bites

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
These were so good! I did use the whole packet of seasoning, and did not think that it was too salty and I don't care for salty foods. I couldn't make them quite as stated since I only had cheap hamburger and didn't want all of that grease in my rolls. So I also baked the meat in the 9x13 that I had also made rolls in at 400 for about 15 min. I didn't add the cheese in, one of the kids don't like it, so I sprinkled it on top after baking. Even my three year old, who never eats any meat but chicken, ate her whole slider. I made Sweet Dinner Rolls from this site and made 16 sliders.

Oven-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I've been making a recipe almost like this for about 12 years. The only difference was butter instead of oil, and it called for 1/4 c. flour too. I made this recipe as stated, hoping to cut the carbs slightly. With that much oil, the flour is really needed. It gave much more of a coating that I missed with these. So maybe butter instead of oil, since they were very oily, or leave the oil and add 1/4 c. flour. Still very good though.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
These look wonderful, and I've made them several times, just never ate them until this morning....they are very salty. My son made them last week for lunch and I just assumed that he had messed up somewhere along the way. But then I made them again this morning, following the recipe except for adding vanilla, and they really do just taste that bad. I'll stick with the truck stop buttermilk pancakes from this site.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
First, I always peel my zucchini before I make anything with it. Doing this eliminates the green give-aways that so many others complain of. I omitted the walnuts because I hate them. The recipe says to spread, not pat into the pan, so I turned up the kitchen aid until it looked like brownie batter. This of course, also chopped up the zucchini shreds more. They were not cake like, but not like fudge brownies from a box either. Somewhere in the middle. The brownies were good though, no green aftertaste, but I make spinach brownies all the time so I may not notice. I did think that the frosting was more sugary than chocolaty tasting, but that may just be me.

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
Yum! My dh would have adored this recipe as written, but he'll never know now. I, on the other hand, prefer sausage in my gravy and not the other way around so I also doubled the flour and milk. No salt, 1t. of pepper. We had it with Grands! and hashbrowns for a super-carbarific breakfast. I did brown the flour after I added it to the sausage, but you wouldn't want to if you like the "white" gravy.

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
YUM!! I baked them for 5 minutes, flipped, and then baked for 3 more. They were not golden on the bottom when I flipped them, but they continue to brown after you flip them over. LOVE how crunchy these are.

Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This is my favorite recipe for fried potatoes. I fell back to this recipe with nasty canned potatoes, but also started zapping fresh spuds in the microwave to cut down the frying time from an hour like my mom's recipe took. My family has always added the onions in the beginning, and yes they either get very caramelized or get a little burnt. I think it must be an acquired taste: ). I usually sprinkle them with garlic powder while I'm cooking them, and the kids eat them half potato/half ketchup.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
I used the crisco recipe for the cookies, and chocolate cake. I made Dream whip frosting. I only baked them for 16 minutes, and they came out just fine. I had mixed up the cookies the night before and froze cookie/ice cream scoops of them, but cut them in half for the cupcakes. I made 24, but there was batter left for 2 more cupcakes. Kids loved them.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
These are delish!! I used bread flour instead of all-purpose, and proofed the yeast with the water and sugar in the bread machine for 15 minutes. The first time I made them into clover-leaf rolls, the ones I'm making now I'll just put into a 9x13. The crescents seem like too much work. After forming, I let them rise in the oven, after heating it to 170 which is the lowest mine goes. I cover them with oiled wax paper and let them rise 1-1 1/2 hrs. I haven't had a problem with sticky dough or them not rising, but I have had to through out the yeast and start that again. If your yeast is no good, you'll end up with biscuits instead of rolls.*Update*I made them tonight as stated, with AP flour and they still turned out wonderful. Formed them into 16 dinner rolls to use for Super Bowl Bites.

Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
This is SO delish!! I left out the syrup, just because we didn't have any. Tastes like liquefied coffee candies. Yummy.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I did not care for this recipe! I left out the water, because it was clearly not needed after adding the tomato sauce. Enchiladas need enchilada sauce. These were more like tortillas filled with chicken and spicy spaghetti sauce.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
So yummy! I halved the recipe since I didn't want leftovers. Served it up on onion rolls that I made that day. Everyone raved about them! I've never made or had corned beef before, but this will be the recipe I keep for it.

French Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
None of us cared for these at all. They didn't get crisp at all, so it wasn't worth adding sugar to an already super starchy food.

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
I didn't like these at all, but since all the guys did, I'm giving 4 stars. These have to be flipped if you want the bacon on the bottom to be anywhere close to done. I didn't marinade the night before, as I was wanting to truly rate the recipe, and it def. could have used more brown sugar since most of it cooks off. Baked them on skewers on cooling racks and they were still way too greasy to be any where near appetizing for me. Fat wrapped in fat is indeed an excellent name for them.

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
I mixed up the recipe as stated, and ended up with a very thin batter. I ended up mixing in four more cups of flour just to make it almost workable-instead of tossing it. I got it rolled out with lots of flour only to have it raise very odd and stick to the well-oiled pan. Once cooked, they tasted very yeasty, bland, and they held a huge amount of oil even though they cooked at the right temp. For so much work, time, and money wasted in ingredients, this was the most disappointing recipe that I've ever tried.

Authentic French Meringues

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
These were just okay. I added cocoa to about 1/2 the recipe and they were a little bitter. The taste of powdered sugar was just overpowering. I'll stick to making them with bakers sugar.
