White Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
These were AMAZING. I made a few changes. I had no butter, so I used 1/2 c Crisco shortening and 2 T extra virgin coconut oil to add some crispness. Added a couple of capfuls of butter flavoring. I used 1/2 t each baking soda and powder, and added 2 little packets of True Orange, about 1/2 t of organic orange extract, and the zest of 2 small oranges for the orange flavoring. Whipped the shortening/oil/egg/sugars for about ten minutes. Decreased the nuts to 1/2 cup and the white chocolate chips to 1 cup. I then added some more True Orange to a bit of sugar, wet the bottom of a glass, and pressed down on the cookies before baking, giving them a lovely orange-sugared topping. Baked for about 11 minutes. It made 42 cookies at about 120 calories apiece, for those who count calories. They were INSANELY good!!!!! I cannot tell you how amazing these cookies were!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
Wonderful! I was craving crunchy granola bars and found this recipe. I found it a little sweet; next time I'll decrease the sugar to probably 2/3 or even 1/2 cup. I used 1/2 c raisins and 1/2 c chocolate chips, decreased the amount of wheat germ to 1/4 c and added 1/4 c of rice protein powder, to bump up the amount of protein. I'll definitely make them again. Do be sure to cut them before they get cold - they do make crunchy bars!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2005
I found this recipe because I was having a mayo craving and knew I had some packaged slaw mix. Overall, it was Awesome! I bumped up the amount of dressing a little - 1/3 of milk and buttermilk, and a healthy 2/3 of mayo. Didn't have as much lemon as called for but added what I had. Left out the onion and decreased the sugar to about 1/4 t. Substituted white vinegar for white wine. Added a little garlic powder and Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Then proceeded to attack the salad before it had even set its full hour. Fabulous! Wonderful! I'm saving this recipe!

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2004
Let's get this back up to 5 stars! This was yummy! I rinsed the beans, used frozen corn, added 3 green onions and some red, green, and yellow bell pepper. Didn't have cilantro, added some garlic powder. Started eating it a few minutes after putting it together - it was EXCELLENT. Don't know if it will make it to tomorrow to see how it tastes fully marinated. Thanks for a great recipe!

Thai Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2004
I thought this was good, but I think there was a problem with the salt measurements. I wasn't using tofu, just making the sauce, and did so without the cilantro. I started by adding 1 tsp of Lawry's seasoned salt, and it made the sauce WAY too salty. Had to add an extra can of coconut milk, then a bit more curry, etc. Also added a little corn starch in water to slightly thicken it. Overall, with these changes, will use this recipe again.

Hot and Spicy Tofu

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2004
This is fabulous! I used the 12oz package of tofu, and used olive oil instead of peanut oil. Didn't use nearly as much oil as called for. Used orange bell pepper instead of green, and probably didn't use as much onion and pepper as was called for. But I found this recipe to be delightful, and probably ate three out of the four servings myself! Thankfully, it seems to be (the way I made it)(relatively)low in fat, except for the frying part of it. Thanks for a great recipe!

Macaroni Au Gratin

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2003
This was great! I added some of Emeril's special seasoning, pepper, and some garlic salt to the gravy portion, and used shredded colby and montery jack and cheddar cheeses. I mixed the cheese into the macaroni, then mixed the gravy into that. It was wonderful; baked all together into a luscious dish.

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
What can I say! Last night I made Bea's Whipped Sweet Potato Casserole that I found on this site, so my sweet potatoes had brown sugar, orange juice, cinnamon, nuts, and a few marshmallows in them. (It was a good casserole) Well, I found this recipe and decided to make the pancakes to eat later... Anyhow, my 2 yr old and 5 yr old were watching me... we started snacking... then moved on to make it an early lunch. I stopped my 2 yr old at 5 pancakes and my 3 yr old at 3 pancakes! The recipe made 25, so I guess my size was right on. They were awesome! The kids ate them plain, I added butter and syrup. I HIGHLY recommend these. Thanks, Wendy, for the recipe!

Cake in a Mug

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2003
This SO didn't work for me. It was WAY too eggy. My white cake mix when cooked in the mug looked and kind of tasted like sweetened scrambled eggs. When you look at the proportions, generally you use two eggs for an entire cake mix, and this was using one egg for 1/8 to 1/12 of the cake mix - you can understand the egginess. I will not even come close to making this again.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2002
How do I love this? Let me count the ways... let's see, I've made it 3 times in the past week. I cannot say enough good things about this. The chips taste good with honey as well; in fact, I prefer them to sopapillas you get in a restaurant. I've been using the frozen berry mix with various other fruits, and my latest preserves has not been preserves, but 3 T of apricot pie filling. I also add some light cool whip to the salsa/salad which brings it to a new high. Thank you so much, Annie, for the recipe!

Simple Sicilian Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2002
Oh, my. I love this stuff. I added some garlic powder and some ground romano cheese, and a tiny pinch of sugar, and it's marvelous! I just made myself a salad at 2am JUST so I can have some of this dressing! I'm definitely making this my new favorite dressing!

Spicy Bagel Bites

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2002
This was great with one very important addition - I added about 1/4 stick melted butter to the spices, and brushed it on (used 3 bagels). Baked them at 375 for about 15 minutes - they were just like giant bagel croutons! Will make again!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
I really appreciated this rice! I'm vegetarian, so used a couple of teaspoons of McKay's chicken style seasoning to make the broth. I also added 5 tablespoons of chopped green chilis. It did require a little extra water to make it nice and soft, but wow, the rice tasted wonderful! Nice and soft texture. Topped it with reduced fat sour cream and some mild Taco Bell sauce (our favorite!) and it beat any restaurant rice, hands down! Thanks for the great recipe!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2002
These are awesome! I even messed up - I halved the recipe, but forgot to halve the baking soda, and they still turned out great. Instead of making 24 cookies though, I made 15 bigger ones using a little ice cream scoop, then baked them for about 15 minutes at about 380 degrees. They were soft on the inside, and crunchy on the outside. The hardest part is to cease and desist from eating them! Thanks for a great recipe.

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2002
This tasted really good. I made a couple of modifications; I am vegetarian, so substituted a package of griller crumbles for the beef, and also added a can of corn to the mix. I didn't give this 5 stars because I had some difficulty with the measurements in the recipe. For instance, I had taco seasoning in a can (had to take extra effort and time to figure out how much is 1.25 oz? would have been easier to read X number of teaspoons or tablespoons). It would have been easier as well to just be told 1/2 cup of grated cheese, instead of 2 oz, for those who don't have a measuring scale and who don't use the grated cheese out of a bag (thankfully, I had the bag to help do the measurements, as there were 12 oz in the bag). Also I had this question - are the tomatoes supposed to be drained or undrained? (I drained them). Overall, because it was a great tasting casserole, I will definitely make this again.

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2002
Oh, my. These are incredible! I made them almost as is with a couple of modifications. I couldn't find my raisins, so I used craisins, and converted the icing to a cream cheese icing by adding 2-3 tablespoons cream cheese, an extra tablespoon of milk, and a couple of tablespoons of butter. FANTASTIC. Tasted like the Hardee's biscuit cinnamon rolls. I gave them a 10, my husband gave them a 7 (he prefers the cinnabon type yeast roll). Thanks for a great recipe!

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2002
Yep, here's yet another Autumn Cheesecake fan. Don't let the fact that you may not have a springform pan deter you from this great recipe! I couldn't find a springform pan to save my life, so used a 9x12 or some similar sized pan... it made the dessert quite thin, but then I felt less guilty about eating a bigger piece! Added a little cinnamon to the cream cheese mixture, decreased baking time to 40-45 minutes, and drizzled some caramel sauce over it after baking. My husband, Mr Picky, was loving it! He gave it a "10" which is a very rare to never occurence. Fabulous dessert!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2002
One word - WOW!!! I was skeptical when I saw how few ingredients there were... and I felt like I needed to look over my shoulder at letting the yeast touch the water against my machine's instructions... but followed the recipe to the letter. Phenominal. Had three slices (with butter - yum) before it had been done 15 minutes! Fabulous recipe!

Rory's Most Wonderful Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2002
What can I say? I LOVE this stuff. Food process the broccoli so my kids can't pick it out... then proceed to make an absolute pig of myself. As a vegetarian, I also feel good about adding a bit more protein to my kids diet through the addition of the cottage cheese in this recipe. I highly recommend this!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2002
These are great! I soaked craisins in orange juice (microwaved the mixture to get it hot) while I was mixing the other ingredients, used a teaspoon of vanilla, left out the brandy, and used one tablespoon of hazelnut syrup, the kind you would put in a coffee drink. Took 9 minutes in my oven. AWESOME! Liked them much better than the Selma's cookie of the same type that I have tasted. Also, I liked that the recipe was only for 2 dozen cookies. That way, I don't have too many left for myself to gorge on, and also didn't lose my attention span while making them because the process was quick. Thank you for the recipe!
