Ground Beef N Rice Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
This recipe wasn't bad. I browned the ground beef before baking as other people suggested. It was not hot in the middle after baking as suggested so I would go a little longer next time. This is kind of a Spanish rice meets meatloaf type flavor. I'll make this again.

Crustless Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This was pretty good. My husband is on a low carb, low cholesterol diet so I made this with some modifications. I used Egg Beaters instead of eggs. I omitted the butter as suggested in some of the reviews and did not miss it. I also left out the bacon and added cooked broccoli instead. I will probably try spinach and feta cheese next time. I cooked this for 8 minutes longer than recommended because the knife was not coming out clean. The edges stuck to the pan a little but the bottom did not. Once loosened with a knife it came out just fine. I'll make this again and try different combinations each time.

Porcupines

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
I have never made meatballs before. I've only ever had them from the store. These were great and very easy. I changed the recipe just a bit... I used brown minute rice, added 1/4 cup of egg beaters, and used cream of mushroom soup instead of tomato sauce. They turned out great. We wished there were more leftovers. I'll never buy meatballs from the store again!

Super Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
I found this recipe and my husband made it. We followed the recipe exactly. He really liked it because it was good and easy. I do not care for fish as much as he does and I just thought it was okay. The flavor was very similar to teriyaki. We used frozen salmon and my husband said next time he'll use fresh to make it even better.

Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
This was pretty good. I used 6 cups of berries because I like a lot of fruit in my pies. I added extra sugar because blackberries are tart. The filling was still pretty tart but not bad. I did have some juice in my pie - some reviewers said it was too solid. I did add a few tiny pats of butter under the crust though. I will probably make this again but add even more sugar.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
I used light sour cream because I do not like mayo and I also added more cheese but this was delicious. The dip was gone before all of the guests arrived. I'll have to at least double it next time. I'll use this recipe for my spinach artichoke dip from now on.

Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
This recipe is great. I made it as written, except I added more fruit. It does make a lot of crunch topping as another reviewer said but I like it that way. I did not feel it needed anything else. It turned out perfect as written. It is also very sweet but again, I prefer it that way. Very easy. I will definitely make this again.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
These cupcakes were pretty good. I followed the recipe exactly. The cupcakes were done in 15 minutes and probably could have come out of the oven a little sooner. That may be part of the reason some of the reviews said they were a little dry. The icing is a good cream cheese icing. I'll make these again but might adjust the ingredients a little. Not bad overall and very easy to make.

Bada Bing Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
I was missing some of the ingredients so I made some substitutions but I don't think they changed the flavor much. I didn't have a full 1/2 cup of applesauce so I used half applesauce and 1/2 baby food prunes (it's what I had on hand!). I used red pepper flakes instead of hot pepper sauce. It is really hot out so we ended up cooking inside instead of on the grill. These were delicious and juicy. They had a sweet/sour/spicy flavor. You couldn't really pick out any one flavor over another - they all blended well. We'll probably try this marinade on chicken next. We saved some of the marinade mix out before adding the meat and added a little to green beans when we served them. It was a nice addition.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Very good! I made it exactly as instructed. It took a lot longer for mine to bake but I don't know if that's due to my oven or other factors. Delicious warm or cold.

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
We loved this. I made the sauce as written but might use less peanut butter next time. We used rotisserie chicken and chow mein noodles instead of won tons and it was super quick and delicious. We'll definitely be making this again.

Baked Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I used this recipe for just one apple. I didn't want to heat the oven for just one so I microwaved it for 5 minutes. It was delicious. I did add water to the bottom of the bowl so it wouldn't dry out too much.

Impossible Pumpkin Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I took a bite of this while it was warm and thought I had made a huge mistake. (I had a big can of pumpkin so I doubled the recipe.) I put it in the refrigerator over night and it was delicious! It is just like pumpkin pie but without the crust. My husband cannot have too many carbs so this recipe was great!

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
I thought this was decent. The flavor was good but it never seemed to set right. I cooked it for 10 minutes longer than suggested and it still didn't seem done all the way (although I know it was). I'll probably make this again but use only 1 cup of milk and eliminate the butter (it pooled on top).

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I knew better than to bake the cake at 400 degrees but the first time I try a recipe I like to follow the directions exactly so I can give it a fair shot. The top edges of the cake (what became the bottom edges) were pretty dark after 30 minutes. I put in a toothpick and it seemed to come out clean. When I cut into the cake at a party later, the uncooked cake batter came oozing out of the middle. I will try this recipe again but will bake at 350 degrees and omit the pineapple juice from the brown sugar/butter mixture in the bottom of the pan. I think all that liquid contributed to raw middle.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I do not have a bread machine so I followed some of the recommendations in the reviews and made the dough in my stand mixer. I realized afterward that one of the suggestions included adding the butter into the warm milk/sugar mixture. It wasn't until it was all mixed that I realized the butter was supposed to go on the rolled out dough. I went ahead and buttered it before baking anyway. The rolls turned out delicious despite my mistake (I love butter anyway!). I brushed melted butter on the top after taking them out of the oven. They melt in your mouth and the texture was perfect! I did use bread flour instead of all purpose flour because I like the texture better for bread. *I read a review that said it needed more flour. The dough was sticky coming out of the mixer but I let it rise in a bowl covered in olive oil and it turned out perfect and easy to handle. I would not recommend adding more flour (other than to roll it in). Just be patient with it.

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I gave this three starts because, while the "Brittle" part of it is delicious, the peanuts tasted burned. I followed the directions exactly and do have experience making candy but this batch was a waste. I made this a second time and added the peanuts at the end when I added the butter and baking soda. It was delicious that way!

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I thought that taste was good but this made way too much for my 9 inch pie pan. I ended up throwing about 1/3 of it away (and the crust I used was thicker than I would have liked it - I just couldn't stand wasting more). I pack the crust down with the bottom of a juice glass to keep it from crumbling when I take slices out.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I've made a lot of apple pies but this was the best by far! This is the only recipe I will ever use again! I used macintosh apples and added cinnamon but followed the recipe exactly other than that. Delicious!
