Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
This was pretty good, but not really any different than the fried style green beans I usually make... maybe a touch more oily, since I don't use so much stuff in the pan. Used can green beans as per the recipe. We usually fry the green beans just with pepper and Johnny's seasoned salt in a little butter until they are slightly crisp, so this lacked a little in the texture department for us.

Amy's Garlic Egg Chicken

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
I've made this a few times... dug out the recipe today to make it again, and realized I haven't rated it. The first time I made it, used a whole egg, and it wasn't the same as when I used just yolks. I agree with many others, that there is just too much coating, so I cut that in half and then make a touch more if I need it so I don't waste so much. I really enjoy the flavor of this chicken, and it cooks up moist and tender. The garlic is not overpowering, but you can definitely taste it. I do use Italian bread crumbs, since that's all I ever have.

Roasted New Potatoes

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Thanks to those before me who mentioned oiling the pan and turning the potatoes. This was tasty, but I made a few changes after tasting the marinade... Added some balsamic and extra spices. Also did what another reviewer did and cooked a cut up onion with the potatoes... used a Vidalia. The marinade was a little bland without these changes, in my opinion... we like more intensity of spices in our potatoes. With my changes will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
I've made these many many times, and I didn't realize that I've never rated it. This is a fantastic recipe. Love the ease of using the machine to make the dough. I've done pull-aparts with these as well as the crescent shape, and they always turn out soft and delicious, with a touch of sweet. One caution... if making the crescents, make sure you really tuck the center point under the roll or they will open and unroll while baking... The kids and I share those right out of the oven, so sometimes I am less careful than I could be... ;-) Thanks for a wonderful recipe that my family requests often!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Made a batch with sugar and a batch with Splenda to compare. Added a splash of vanilla to both batches. Had to leave in the oven for an extra 5 minutes as these were goo after 8... then I followed other reviewers' advice to let them cool a little longer on the pan than I normally would. The Splenda cookies were less gooey, but are very crumbly... and I have to say I like the texture of the cookies with sugar a little more. Can't beat this recipe for ease, and ability to sub Splenda to get a reduced carb cookie tho... The flavor of both sugar and non-sugar versions was rich and definitely satisfies the PB jones.

BAKER'S Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
OMG... munching one of these warm off the cookie sheet right now and it's divine! I did follow others before me and used chocolate chips. Also added a little cinnamon (1/2 t) to the batter and it's perfect... just a hint of spice. My son helped make these, so that's how easy it is. Took 12 minutes in my oven for chewy inside and a touch of crunch. Will definitely make these again. If it matters to anyone, used Trader Joe's all natural peanut butter. Got 29 cookies out of this using a heaping tablespoon of dough.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I've been making these for a while, but forgot to review them. Dug out the recipe so I can have them ready for Easter weekend. I love the idea to make these the night before and let them rise in the fridge. That's the best advice I've gotten from the reviews. Gonna try flipping them out onto a cookie sheet this time before icing them, as that sounds like a good idea as well! While a bread machine is not necessary, it does make this recipe super easy, and I've never had it fail.

Pastitsio III

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
The flavor of this was really wonderful! I've never had pastitsio before so it was a treat to make this. Had to sub penne as that's what I had, and canned diced tomatoes (I know...) but it was good. This used a ton of dishes to make, but worth it. I was a little leery when putting it together, but glad we tried this one. My only real complaint is how the recipe was written... Calls for salt in the directions and no salt listed in the ingredients. Does not say to bake covered or uncovered (chose uncovered). Also added a touch of salt to the white sauce, as my parm was not very salty and I used unsalted butter. Will definitely make again, tho.

Gingered Tea

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I do not care for this at all... I agree with the reviewer that said it tastes like warm milk. The ginger made it bitter, and it barely has a tea taste. Will not make this again.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
This was really good and incredibly easy... the perfect combo in my book! A lot of the long loaf recipes collapse outward rather than rise up when you get them on the cookie sheet, but these were tall and gorgeous! I did cheat as others and just let the loaves rise on the cookie sheet covered with a silpat rather than move them. I was also out of egg for the wash so just used milk and sprinkled with a pinch of salt and some granulated garlic for crunch. Used a loaf with the herb spread for garlic bread off this site. Wonderful with chicken cacciatore! Thanks for the recipe!

Herb Spread for French Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
This was really tasty, even tho I had to use dried herbs, as that's what I had. I use unsalted butter, so this needed a touch of salt for me to bring out all the flavors. Very good tho. Used "Italian bread using a bread machine" recipe off this site, and highly recommend it. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
These were super tasty! Had them for dinner a couple nights ago. Used extra thick boneless loin chops and subbed canned beef broth for the water. After cooking, removed the chops and onions, drained off most of the liquid, then whisked in some flour to make a roux, added the reserved liquid and the rest of the can of broth and made a gravy to go over the chops. I only made 2 chops and there were plenty of onions, but I'd at least double the onion for more servings. Served this with garlic parmesan mashed potatoes. Will definitely make again.

.... and where's that Ole Janx Spirit?... Sorry... having a Doug A moment. Too fun and reminds me of a college roommate who had the Klingon bartending guide. Thanks for making me smile.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
You are my hero! The first onion rings ever to keep the batter on while frying. Used sweet onions from Trader Joe's and these were to die for. Used Italian bread crumbs cause that's what I had and added no other seasoning. Will try Panko next time. Also used the same flour/batter method for some crimini mushrooms and that was equally fantastic! Thank you for sharing this recipe! UPDATE: Made these tonight and breaded some frozen green beans, slightly thawed, with the same method, and they are great!

Outrageous Caesar Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I don't like giving bad reviews, but this is terrible... Made it last night and we choked it down, but it's bitter and salty. Gonna try to fix what's left, because I love anchovies, but I will probably end up throwing it out. Yes, I followed the recipe, and yes, I have had Caesar salad in some really great restaurants.

Spiced Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
The flavor of this is really great, with the perfect balance of spices, but it turned out a bit dry for our taste. Followed the recipe exactly, and next time I will add a touch of milk, sour cream, or buttermilk to moisten up the cake batter. Be warned that when it says "spread" into the pan, it means it. This is a really dense cake batter. Will make again with minor changes.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
Oh, man, is this good.... Just finished having it for a late lunch. Would be 5 stars, but a half a cup of mayo for one can of tuna would have made this really soupy... at least to me. I added a boiled egg cause I love them with tuna. Other changes were based on what I had. No relish, so cut up some fire and ice pickles. No dill, but didn't miss it. After tasting, added a touch of celery seed and a little black pepper. This would be wonderful in a pita bread with lettuce and tomato, but as I can attest, is equally great with a few crackers and a spoon!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This was pretty good.... good enough my picky husband had seconds. I used the "refried beans without the refry" recipe off this site and spread those on the tortillas (thanks to whoever first gave that advice). I changed some things in the meat, mostly because I only had a pound, so cut some things back and added some taco seasoning to get more flavor with less meat. Garnished with sour cream and avocado pieces.

Green Grape Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I have made this several times... but I never really follow all the steps... I mix the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar (Splenda), and vanilla together and just use this as a dip for any fruit I have. This makes the best tasting fruit dip ever, and since I don't stir in the fruit, it looks a little prettier having the dip in a bowl and fresh fruit all around. Can top the dip with the brown sugar and chopped pecans or leave it off. Either way, it tastes great.

Carrot Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
Really good! Cut the oil back to 1 cup, but otherwise left the recipe alone. My glaze turned slightly beige because I used too much vanilla, but didn't affect the taste at all. Husband liked this as well... so it's a keeper. Will make again.
