Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
This recipe is good however, the cook time is not. I found that my cookies look flat with pertruding chocolate chips in them when cooked at ten minutes but when cooked at 15 or so minutes, they rise all the way. I'm getting more and more into baking and this is the first time I've ever dissolved the baking soda in water first. I think it really makes a difference.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: May 17, 2013
I needed a base recipe to go by to make a can of black beans for the first time. I used the ingredients and amounts in the recipe but sauteed my onions and garlic on low for about 15 minutes. I rinsed and drained the beans and added them to the onion/garlic mixture and added cilantro, chilli powder, cumin, salt, and cayenne pepper. Before I added the spices, I tried it and it was very bland. After adding enough salt and more spices, I got it to taste very well. I did not cook down my beans as long as I should have but the flavor was what I was going for. Added a little lime on it afterwards too.

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
I needed a base recipe for stuffed zucchini as the neighbor gave us one that is HUGE. I sliced the zucchini in lengthwise boats and removed all of the huge seeds. I placed them in the oven at 425 to cook them down a bit due to their size. Meanwhile, I sauteed 1/4 of a sweet onion and 3 cloves of garlic in a pan. Once browned, I added my pork and beef mixture. I took out the onions and garlic and set aside as I figured the meat would accumulate grease. I seasoned the mix with crushed red pepper flakes, oregano, fresh basil, and s+p. I cooked the mix until browned. I added back the onion and garlic that I had set aside once the pan was drained. I put the drained mixture into a bowl. I added 1/2 a heirloom tomato with some juice, 1/4 cup parm cheese, breadcrumbs, and 1 egg.

Mom's Country Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
This recipe is great. I've made it a few times now but as one reviewer suggested, I substitued oil for butter. I'm not sure country gravy gets much better than this.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I made only 2 yams and added milk, butter, brown sugar, and just a dash of maple syrup to taste. Was definitely good and different as I'm getting sick of garlic mashed!

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
I had all of the ingredients besides bread crumbs so I crushed some French's Friend Onions and used those as my coating. I'm sure regular dry bread crumbs would have been fine but the fried onions were awesome! I didn't have enough to coat for the second time so some poppers came out with missing breading spots. I only made these for my family so asthethic value didn't matter so much this time. I added a little bit of colby jack cheese for added flavor too. I also decided to freeze some leftover poppers after frying. This recipe definately makes the best ever jalapeno poppers!

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
I have now made this spice several times now and me and my bf love it! I use it on both salmon and tilapia with success. My latest--I thought that the fish needed a topping or accompaniment...so I tried this recipe for Avacado Tomato Salsa from the foodnetwork...uses 1 avocados, peeled, and cut in small dice, 3 tomatoes, cut in 1/4-inch pieces, seed part removed and cut in small dice, 1/2 medium red onion, cut in small dice, 1/4 bunch cilantro, chopped roughly, 1 jalapenos, seeded and minced, 1 ounces lime juice, and salt and pepper, to taste. It was a delicious combination! It was too much served with tarter previously but the salsa is a bit work however, so worth it! I would also cut down the cayenne a little as it does get really hot unless you like it that way.

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
This recipe was close to what we've been searching for! I liked the combination of Gruyere swiss and Asiago. This recipes also goes well with Mozzarella and Asiago (or Parm) instead for a milder touch. Also, If you had trouble caramelizing the onions, you may have not cooked them long enough. It took almost 20 minutes for us to fully caramelize them.

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Seeing that there weren't any ingredients to have any sauce at the end, I added 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup white wine to the mix. I omitted the hot pepper sauce from my recipe and it was really delicious! I will make this again.

Baked Haddock

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
I placed it on a cooling rack as others suggested and it came out crunchy, not soggy. I followed the recipe otherwise and thought it was bland. I wanted to use egg but I found the bread crumbs stuck just fine with the milk. It was an interesting alternative to making fish however, I doubt its one I'll make again.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
I used fresh herbs instead of dried. Also, Since this recipe tastes awesome NOT mushy unlike the stuff in the box, I use half the mixture to stuff my bird but I roast the other half in the oven in a 9 inch sq cake pan with a little extra turkey broth. It is AWESOME.

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
This recipe is awesome. A few mistakes I've made include using out of date baking powder and baking soda-made for a weird spongy cake, not sifting my flour and or confectioners sugar to eliminate the possibility of clumps, not allowing the cake to cool completely or allowing the icing to get too warm, and realized sometimes the batter should be spread a little more evenly. Although an easy thing to mix together, it still requires technique to get a beautiful roll.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
The only ingredient that I wasn't able to obtain from the store was the adobe sauce from chipolte peppers. Instead, I used a bit of frank's and chulo hot sauce. I really didn't care for the dressing or marinade that came of it. The taste of the fish especially when grilled was good and also went well with finely sliced cabbage and tomato. Nice idea but wasn't quite what I was looking for.

Easiest Pot Roast Ever

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
It's very bland with water and bouillon so I used beef stock and some merlot in 1/4 and 1/4 amounts. Then I added the vegetables, chuck roast, and 3 bouillon cubes as directed. No pre-searing needed. Cooked on low for almost 9 hours in the crockpot. Salt and pepper to taste.

A Simply Perfect Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
I made this recipe last year simply as stated. I thought it was great. This year, we decided to brine our 14 turkey for the first time. To 'brine' its not difficult but requires a bit of work. We boiled a stockpot of water and tossed in some garlic, shallots, thyme, sage, rosemary, peppercorns, and coarse kosher salt. You would bring to a boil and then allow the mixture to completely cool. Once cooled, clean and prepare the bird; place in the stockpot. We left this permeate overnight. The next day, the recipe was followed except for a couple details. Instead of using butter, we placed the same 3 herbs used in the brine under the skin of the breast and used the awesome sausage, apple, and cranberry stuffing recipe from this website inside the bird cavity. The end result was the best and most tender turkey I have ever had in MY LIFE!
