Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
Awesome meatballs! We especially loved the kick in these. Even my 2 year old gobbled them up.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
I made a couple of mistakes when I was making these. First I put in a full cup of water. Oops. And later I put in two eggs. Oops again. Needless to say, I needed to add more flour, but the dough was silky smooth, and I loved working with it. I rolled them into hot-dog buns, and raised them in the oven with a boiling cup of water for around 45 minutes. I only baked them for 10 minutes, and they were perfect.

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
This was definitely flavorful, and didn't need gravy (I suspect the reds were the difference that made this possible). My husband rated them a 5, I rated them a 3, but not because they were bad...I'm just not huge into garlic like he is.

Baked Paprika-Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
This was super juicy and pretty yummy, too. I didn't change a thing, but next time I think I might add something to give it some more oomph. It was good, but not something we talked about afterwards.

Peanut Butter Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
This recipe is awesome. I took the advice of others and added another 1/3 cup of peanut butter (2/3 cup total). and only used 1/2 cup brown sugar. I didn't have any buttermilk, but just used normal milk with great results. I made it into muffins so reduced the time baking to 15 minutes at 350. Delicious!

Brenda's Pepperoni Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
I left this recipe in my recipe box for a long time, going back and forth between deleting it, or giving it a try. I am really glad that I decided to try it...everyone LOVED it! I sliced the chicken really thin instead of pounding it, and it worked well for me. I didn't brown the chicken in the pepperoni fat, but dipped it in egg, then italian breadcrumbs and baked it with a single piece of pepperoni on top. The chicken came out very moist, and the flavor (although a bit odd to think about) was great. I baked them for 40 minutes at 350, since I didn't do the brown-in-pepperoni-fat step, and they came out juicy and oh-so-good!

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
I followed the review by Patti L on this almost verbatim. I added 1 tbls brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, left out the poultry seasoning, only 2 tsp of paprika, olive oil to coat (and also in the baking dish). Very good. The right balance of sweet and spicy. It was nice to have a more savory sweet potato dish. A definite keeper!

Wonton Wrappers

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Rolled them out bigger and used them as egg roll wrappers. Good for someone on a budget, but I think I'm probably going to splurge and buy the real thing next time, since it took quite a while to roll them out, and then it was tricky to wrap the egg rolls to cook.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
This was really really good. Like many others, I didn't mix the spaghetti sauce with the cheeses. I halved the recipe, used whole wheat rotini (it was an "I haven't been to the grocery store in a while" kind of dish) drained and rinsed cottage cheese instead of ricotta, and I just had to throw some ground beef in there. I mixed the pasta, the ricotta, a couple of large handfuls of mozzarella and the egg in one bowl, the spaghetti sauce and ground beef in another and then layered them like lasagna, with the leftover mozzarella on top. It came out very cheesy (which we LOVE) so I got raves from everyone. My husband kept talking about it, even eight hours later. Definitely a keeper for us!

Herb Batter Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
The flavor of this was awesome, as was the ease. I modified it a bit by necessity of time. I was making this for lunch, but was going to be gone for three hours immediately before needing to bake it, so I needed the proof time to be a lot longer. I increased the salt to 2 tsp and reduced the sugar to 1 tsp. Instead of shortening I used EVOO, like many others, and used oregano instead of parsley. Added 1/2 tsp garlic, but I think it would have been fine without it. The changes in the salt and sugar were just what I needed to lengthen the proof time, and this turned out wonderful. I'm looking forward to trying it as is for a quick side sometime.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I didn't use the sugars, or the raspberries. I cut the recipe in half, but still used two kiwis (because we LOVE them) Used raspberry jam for the preserves, so I couldn't really complain about the color, because it was already pink, and it was my fault! For the chips, I used regular (vegetable oil) cooking spray, and I felt that they were delicious. I made this for our valentine's dinner, so I cut four of the tortillas into wedges, and two into hearts (using a metal cookie cutter). Delicious!

Super Crunch Oven Cooked Honey Dipped Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
I read the reviews, got short on time, and ended up eating these without the honey sauce on them. I wish I hadn't. They were crunchy, alright, but the breading was pretty dry...like it looked like it was dipped in flour even after baking. The marinade made the chicken really good, though, so I'll try it again with the honey.

Spicy Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
I used boneless pork chops instead of chicken and cut the cayenne in half, but before adding the cayenne, I rubbed one chop with the mixture for my one-year old. I sampled the non-spicy version after grilling and thought the flavor was excellent and my one year old agrees. Our spicy-version turned out to be fantastic, with just enough heat for our tastes. I wouldn't put the full amount of cayenne in. We can handle super-spicy, but it is more enjoyable and flavorful with less IMHO.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This was great. I used normal bacon, cooked and crumbled. Threw everything in the crock pot (but the cheese and bacon) and cooked it for 5 hours on low. When the chicken was done, I topped it with the cheese and bacon and let it cook 15 more minutes to melt the cheese. YUM!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
These were delicious. I froze the quartered pb cups so they would hold their shape better, omitted the cocoa powder from the cookie. Make sure you don't overcook them. Nine minutes is plenty

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
I couldn't get it into a ball, but wasn't too upset by it since I had read the reviews prior to making it, and kind of expected it. I simply put it into a decorative mini-loaf pan and pressed mini chocolate chips on top. Problem solved. It was simply delicious.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Followed the recipe exactly. The butter is a nice change from shortening, and it is just as beautiful. I doubled the recipe and had no problem frosting 3 dozen cupcakes. I even did the little swirly thing on them....and that takes a lot of frosting! I used gel food coloring, and it turned out vibrant without affecting the consistency.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I like garlic, but I don't love it, so I'm glad I mixed the seasonings in a bowl and sprinkled them on that way. I didn't use the entire thing, but it was plenty garlicky for us. I served it with pasta alfredo and it was delish. I probably wouldn't eat it by itself, but as a filler for the pasta it was very good.
