Deep Fried Jalapeno Slices

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
I'm giving this 5 stars only because I adapted the recipe, and I wanted to be nice to the person who posted this recipe. That said: We don't drink beer, so I used apple juice instead, but otherwise followed the recipe. They weren't great, but after reading other reviews, I think it was the recipe, not my change. They were kind of soggy. I had to add more flour to get the batter to stick at all. I did two methods of cutting the jalopenos. The first batch, I cut out all the seeds. These were not very hot. The second batch I left the seeds in, and they were so hot we could hardly eat them!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
Good recipe. I made it as written, except using all butter instead of the shortening. I needed to bake them about 13 minutes. For the people who gave this one star and said the cookies were mushy, there are several things to remember. 1. Let butter soften on the counter to room temperature. Don't soften in the microwave. 2.Make sure you use rolled oats, not quick oats. 3. Be sure to leave them on the tray for a little after getting them out of the oven as the directions specify.

Mother's Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Great muffins. I usually hate when people leave reviews and then list all the changes they made, but I'll be guilty of the same today. I substituted whole wheat flour for 1 1/2 cups of all purpose and 1/2 cup barley flakes for another 1/2 cup flour. I added an extra tsp. cinnamon, and 3/4 tsp ginger. I also cut the sugar in half. They were delicious!

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
I'm only giving this 4 stars for three reasons: 1. Any recipe with a title like that is sure to disappoint. 2. Just a personal preference...even though the long baking time and low heat made a good cookie, I found it tedious and time consuming to have to drag out the cookie baking that long. Also, the cookies need to be partially cooled on the pan, which tied up my pans when I needed them for other things. 3. Another minor personal preference: as the recipe is written these are huge cookies. I made them half the recommended size and they were just right for us. Still a nice, big cookie, but more within the range of appropriate for calorie intake!

White Bean Soup for a Crowd

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Loved this! My 23 month old daughter asked for 2nds and 3rds. I served it with cornbread.

Skillet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Delicious. A quick alternative to traditional baked cornbread. It was just the right amount for my husband and me, and our toddler. You don't have to heat up the oven with this one. I made the recipe as written, except for using whole wheat flour instead of the all purpose, and adding 2 tsp. sugar.

Five-Minute Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Wonderful and so easy. I used a regular pastry crust because I didn't have graham crackers for a cracker crust. Used it for my birthday pie.

Quick and Easy Pancit

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
I had trouble with the noodles not getting soft when done as the recipe said. I finally ended up cooking them, but then they stuck in one gooey mess. It was my first time trying rice noodles, though, so I'm not going to rate the recipe according to that. The flavor was excellent.

Pizza On The Grill I

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
This was fabulous. It was my first time trying pizza on the grill. I didn't have all the topping ingredients in the recipe, so I used what I had. I also divided the dough into 3 pizzas to make it easier to handle. I used foil on the grill as some others had suggested. This was a definite hit and will be going into my regular menu planning!

Apple Yogurt Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
Pancakes are quite dense and filling. I found them perhaps a bit thick...I might try adding a bit more milk next time. I used homemade yogurt. I also used about 3/4 cup whole wheat flour and the rest all purpose. I used about 1 1/2 apples, and I think it would be fine to use 2 whole ones. These were a nice switch from our normal recipe.

Sassy Spaghetti

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
I made this recipe as written, except that I used a 13 oz box of whole grain spaghetti instead of the 16 oz in the recipe. I also had cooked my own beans, and had just over a pound of them. Even with having less spaghetti and more beans than the recipe called for, there was WAY too much pasta for the amount of bean mix. It was very dry. I ended up adding a bit of sour cream to make it more palatable. I won't try this one again without major adaptation.

Light Wheat Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
This is a delicious recipe. I followed it exactly, except for reducing the amount of butter spread on top, Oh, I cheated and didn't roll them out, but just pinched off balls and made plain old rolls. I noticed that there were some comments giving this fewer stars because "the rolls don't have any flavor" or something similar. Please! This is not a recipe for garlic rolls, or savory herb rolls, or hot and spicy rolls (although as others have mentioned, it can be adapted to be such). This is a recipe for light wheat rolls, and that is exactly what you get. Those of us who appreciate good bread in and of itself without any need for added flavor, this is a keeper recipe. I did a triple batch and used my Bosch mixer to mix them, and it worked the dough just fine. This recipe is also definitely toddler approved. My 15 month old has had two already, and they are barely out of the oven!

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Made it for a Christmas family gathering and it got rave reviews. I did it exactly as written, except I made the mistake of not reading the recipe carefully enough, and added the oil meant for the croutons into the dressing!

White Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Fantastic! The only thing I changed was that I, being a tightwad, made a double batch, but only used about 1 1/4 bags of chips instead of 2. Still plenty of chips. Definitely will make it again.

Golden Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I was looking for a recipe to use up some cottage cheese that went sour on me (Ok, so it was a couple months since the expiration date!). This recipe worked perfectly. You couldn't tell that the cottage cheese was sour. It is more of a crepe than a pancake, so I'd recommend serving with either toast or muffins. Good with fruit spread or maple syrup. My husband ate them with hot dogs (OK, he's a little strange, just a tradition they had at home!). My 9 1/2 month old loved them too.

Pasta with Greens N Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
I am not an escarole lover, but since we got some with our CSA share, I needed to find a way to use it. I had a bunch of escarole, and one of dandelion greens, both very bitter. This recipe actually made them palatable. I'll turn to it again when I have greens that I don't know how else to use. I didn't have the beans on hand, so I just skipped them. I used hot sausage.

Apple-Raspberry Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
I just used 1 cup brown sugar, but split it between the apples and the topping. The flavor is wonderful. I didn't have Granny's, so I used what I had on hand, which happened to be a sauce apple. I am a lazy cook (Ok, not really, just a busy cook with a 9 month old to entertain) so I didn't even bother peeling the apples. Everyone at our house is just happy to have dessert, so no one is complaining. :-)

Cornmeal Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
My husband said, "I think these are some of the best muffins you've ever made!" I make a lot of muffins, so that is really saying something. I had a carton of cottage cheese that went sour, (OK, the expiration date was a couple months ago!), so I decided to give these a try to use it up. It worked beautifully. I think I'll make a couple more batches tomorrow to use up the rest of my sour cottage cheese, then stick them in the freezer. I did use 1 cup each flour and cornmeal as suggested by another reviewer.

Drop Sugar Cookies II

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
This is a cake style cookie. I'm giving it 4 stars because personally, I don't care as much for the cake style cookies, but in their class, they are pretty good. They are cheap, easy, and use sour milk, all good reasons I'll probably make them again. I keep a list of recipes that use sour milk for the inevitable occurrence of milk going sour on me. Never throw it out!
