Skiers' French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I thought this recipe was fabubous! I loved the syrup! However, I did make a few modifications. I added 1 tsp. each of cinnamon and nutmeg. I sprayed the bottome of a glass 9"x13" pan w/cooking spray. I let the syrup mixture come to a boil before I poured it into the pan. I layered sliced french bread, crust on, over the syrup and then poured the milk egg mixture over that. I let it sit covered overnight in the fridge. The next morning, I placed the glass pan containing the french toast into a metal pan filled with 1/2" of water. I baked it in the oven, covered, for 30 min. I then uncovered the dish and baked it for an additional 20 min. It came out fantastic! The caramel syrup didn't stick to the pan at all and the bread was lightly toasted on top. This is one of my favorite new recipies and I know I'll make it again and again.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
This recipe was okay. I liked the fact that it called for ingredients I always have on hand and it was fast and easy. However, the bars lacked flavor. My husband flat out said they were NOT good. They're not the best cookie bars I've ever made. I wouldn't recommend this recipe based on flavor, but they were fast and easy! Also, FYI, the recipe doesn't need the egg other reviewers added. The mixture is supposed to be crumbly-the butter adds fat and oil for moisture-so you can press it in the pan like the recipe says. These are bars, not cookies, so the mix doesn't need to be cookie dough consistency.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
I make these all the time! I've used a couple short cuts to save time. First, I "bake" them in the microwave for the first bake, that really cuts down on bake time. It only takes about 10 min. to cook 4 baking potatos instead of an hour. I let the oven pre-heat while the potatos are "baking." It's important to use a potholder when handling the hot potatos. Since the skin comes out a little softer when prepared in the microwave, it's important to leave a good 1/4" skin when scooping out the insides. Second, I buy pre-cooked bacon. I follow the rest of the directions for mixing the filling and bake the second time in the oven. They always come out perfect. My kids actually prefer them cooked in the micro first because the skin isn't quite so tough. I hope this helps some time savy cooks save some time!

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
Overall this recipe tasted pretty close to resaurant egg drop soup I've eaten. However, my husband thought it had too much egg in it. Also, I think green onions would be better than the chives. In addition, I added half a can of chopped water chestnuts for added crunch and texture. The soup did not re-heat very well as far as I was concerned either. I will not use this recipe again.

Cheeseburger and Fries Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
My G-ma has made this for years, and it was one of my favorites growing up. Now I make it for my family and they love it too. If you're looking for a good simple casserole recipe, then this one might be it.

No Bake Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I decided to make these cookies because I had all the ingredients on hand, boy was I ever dissapointed in them! They were very easy to make, however they didn't fair too well in the taste department. My husband, who loves everything I make and will eat anything, even said they were bland. I would give them away, but I'm too emarassed to tell anyone I made them. Save your no-bake energy for some rice krispie treats, which taste much better.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
This dish was very easy to make and it tasted wonderful. The flavors came together really well. I paired it with jasmine rice and an oriental veggie blend. My husband enjoyed it as well. It's one of our new favorite dishes.
