Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
The cookies are as others have stated: crispy, chewy and buttery. My only issue is that I think 2 cups of chips is way too much sweetness. So I only added 1 cup and used butterscotch chips. I thought it was just the right amount of sweetness and they were quite good overall. Also, I think I might add more oats next time. I prefer more an "oat-y" oatmeal cookie.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I made the recipe mostly as is, minus the green pepper and added 1 can kidney and 1 can red beans for interest, oh and only 1 lb beef--perfect porportion to the other ingredients. The flavor was great, not too tomato-ey/glorified tomato soup as other reviewers said. The consistency was perfect. Also, a great balance of sweet and spicy. However, it could stand to be a bit hotter to me and I'm not a lover of super spicey foods. I made it for guests and got nothing but compliments. They were curious what was in it to give it such a unique flavor. Served with sliced green onions, sour cream and cornbread.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I left out the jalapenos and only added 1/8 tsp cayenne. (made for guests and was cautious with the heat). I also mashed one of the cans of beans to thicken. I used pre cooked chicken breast strips. It tasted really good, however, I simmered it for about 30 min and lost quite a bit of juice. If only there was a better way to get it into more of a true chili consistency. The next day, it was too thick because there was hardly any broth left, but the flavor was great.

Corn Casserole III

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
I made this for a potluck. I followed the recipe, but used light sour cream and added 1 egg. I thought it was a little too greasy for my tastes, wish I would have added 1/2 the butter. I got lots of compliments on it, though. I think next time I'd add 2 eggs so it's a little fluffier. It was really thin and dense. (I used a cake pan instead of 1 qt dish too). Took 1 hour to bake.

Easy Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Used old fashioned oats for quick cooking, unsweetened applesauce for all oil, 1/2 c each white and whole wheat flour, brown sugar for white. Added: 1/4 c chopped walnuts, almost one whole medium sized apple (braeburn--all I had), 1 tsp cinnamon. Sprinkled brown sugar on tops. Baked for 17 min. Very tasty muffins. Glad I sprinkled with sugar bc they're not overly sweet--but this is how they're intended to be. Could have added more cinnamon, should have also added a lil nutmeg. I'm excited to have a fast breakfast for the week!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Modifications: 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup white flour, 3/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 c brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, dash nutmeg. Used pecans not walnuts. They were great! Wish I had added another banana for more flavor and didn't chop the nuts too finely. I like bigger nut pieces.

Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
I made a "healthified" version of this recipe. I used reduced fat cheese, light sour cream, reduced fat cream of chicken soup, and 2 tbsp non-hydrogenated butter spread to moisten the corn flakes. I sauteed the onion (1/2 cup chopped) in a little olive oil. I mixed everything together instead of layering. Oven at 350 for 1 hour. I put on corn flakes after 30 min in the oven. (Maybe using spray butter on the flakes would have cut even more calories, but I didn't have any on hand.)I brought this to Christmas Eve dinner and everyone loved it! They were all surprised when I told them it's a reduced fat version. There were no left overs!

Spritz Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
This is my first time making spritz cookies and using a cookie press (Pampered chef). The dough was so soft and easy to work with. I couldn't believe how perfect the cookies turned out. They have a very delicate, delicious flavor. I added only 2 cups of flour and added 1 cup of sugar. I think they turned out tasting perfect! These cookies are not bland; they're supposed to have a subtle flavor and a melt in your mouth texture.

Terrific Turkey Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
I LOVE this recipe. I've made it about 5 times now. I do omit the green pepper, olives and marjoram (I never have it). I also substitute sea salt for the celery salt and add a few extra "shakes" of dried thyme. It is so moist and flavorful. It's a great way to dress up the taste of turkey meat. This is the best turkey meatloaf recipe ever!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
I was really excited about this recipe after reading the reviews. I followed the recipe exactly and they were tasteless. I realize that I used unsalted butter, maybe this is why. I feel like the dough needed more moisture and they just lacked something. They came out oddly shaped also.
