Earthquake Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
These are spectacular. Perfect for us poor college students as they are cheap and simple. Used margarine instead of shortening. I had no powdered sugar but granulated sugar does the trick. I have now made these with chocolate fudge, devils food, red velvet (lovely color and taste!), lemon, and orange cake mixes and have yet to be disappointed!

Overnight Raisin Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
This was delicious! I only let the oatmeal sit an hour, had no baking powder so I doubled the baking soda, and it was still yummy! I'm sure it's even better following the recipe.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
This was delicious! I followed recommendations of other reviewers, adding cinnamon, nutmeg, and crushed red pepper. I didn't have any sour cream so I added a bit of yogurt. It got rave reviews from the family.

Creamy Linguini for Two

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Firstly, half a pound of pasta is more than two servings (thank goodness, since, as listed each serving is over a thousand calories). We got about 4 and a half servings out of it. Also, it made more sense to me to just cook the bacon in the same pasta pot right before making the sauce, worked well and added some flavor. As another reviewer said, used 2% milk and added a little flour, but I don't think the flour was really necessary as it would have been plenty thick. Also put in some sauteed mushroom and onion. Tasted great. Good versatile recipe, will certainly use again.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Great cookie. I noticed there was a dispute between shortening (which aparently has an oily taste) and butter (which gives the wrong consistency). I decided to compromise and use a vegetable oil spread (margarine) which had the best of both worlds. Make sure your oven is totally preheated, my first batch came out super mushy and did not get the "crackled" look affect.

Ginger Snaps II

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
These cookies tasted great, but they turned out more cake-ish than snap-ish if you know what I mean. Being a poor college students who takes most of her ingredients from the cafeteria I did have to make a few adjustments, such as brown sugar instead of white sugar and molasses. I don't know if this accounted for the texture difference, but as I said, it tasted great.

Best of Everything Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
These burgers were HUGE! I thought about halving the recipe and was sorry I didn't. I baked them and it took longer to cook than the directions said. They tasted pretty good, but more hassle than they were worth in my opinion.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
This was basically a chicken pot pie with the biscuit mixed in. None-the-less, is was indeed tasty. It made much more than I expected though, i had to start removing some of the "chicken" part to make room for the dumplings, and even then couldn't fit it all. It fed my family of 3 for more than 2 meals.

Apple Butter Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
I recently got a jar of cherry butter. I wanted to do something fun with it, and remembered doing this recipe with apple butter last fall (which was great). So I used it with the cherry butter, omitted the spices, and used fresh cut up cherries instead of raisins. It was phenomenal! Totally different flavor, but just as good :)

Kevin's Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This was fantastic! I cut the chicken into smaller pieces, cooked it a bit in a skillet then threw in a bag of Asian style frozen veggies and some leftover rice. Then I put some of the sauce on and some corn-starch to thicken. Delicious :)

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
Excellent! I halved the recipe and it worked out fine, just used a smaller pan and a bit less time in the oven. I also added a bit of allspice. I served it with wild rice and green beans. It was delicious :)

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
I usually don't like asparagus but my family needs to eat healthier so I gave this recipe a try, and the asparagus was actually tolerable. Everything else in it was just great! I added a can of diced tomatoes and some sauteed mushrooms. It was delicious and colorful. Also, there's really no such thing as too much garlic with this; I added 3 cloves and it still could have used more in my opinion, but it was still good.

Old Plantation Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
I love these rolls! I've made them a few times now, but today I tried them with whole wheat flour and they were still wonderful!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
Wonderful. I substituted 1/4 splenda for 1/4 cup of the sugar and it still turned out great.

Chili Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
Very good. It makes a lot more than 4 servings though, but that was fine with my family because we all had seconds :)
