Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
I wasted a lot of flour and butter and the better part of an afternoon with my cookie press on these cookies. All you could taste was flour. My husband tried to cheer me up by saying "they might be edible if we frost them." I didn't want to waste the frosting. The ratings on this website are usually accurate but I don't know how this one is scoring so high. They were not good at all.

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.

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.

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
I enjoyed this pot pie. I've tried other recipes in the past and they're always too runny. I followed the recipe for the "gravy" exactly and will use less pepper next time (personal taste). I did add the veggies that my family liked, including potato. Overall a good recipe.

Impossible Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Easy and delicious! Lower carb foods aren't usually this good.

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!

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.

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!

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
I only used the sweet and sour sauce portion of this recipe. It was amazing! I used red pepper instead of green due to personal preference. My husband was disappointed it was gone and wondered if we had the ingredients to make it again the next night. We're using this recipe for a party coming up. This was delicious and so easy!

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.

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.

Buttermilk Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
This is delicious. I only had one 3-ounce box of peach jello so I added a 3-ounce box of raspberry as well. I only had vanilla flavored cool whip on hand but it worked fine. I added a can of drained mandarin oranges as well. This was great!

Pumpkin Cheese Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
This is a very good pumpkin bread with a subtle flavor. I followed the recipe exactly - except I didn't have any cloves. Instead I used 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and then added an extra 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. My husband thought it would be good to spread cream cheese on it as well but I had used it all in the bread. We'll have to try that the next time I make 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!

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).

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.

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.

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.

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
I made this recipe twice over the weekend for two different events and got great compliments both times. I did not add onion due to personal preference and I melted the cheese into the white sauce because it wasn't all already shredded, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. I saw one review that said that she mixed it together and served it from the stove top. I tried it before baking it and thought it tasted okay, but after baking it was delicious. I've never made macaroni and cheese with processed cheese because it doesn't really appeal to me but it does make a difference. This is a basic macaroni and cheese recipe. I'll probably experiment with other cheese combinations to see what I can create. I love feta and think a little might give it the extra kick I really love.
