Taco Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Great! and super easy! I cooked a little onion and 2 small hot peppers with the meat and added a can of kidney beans to the meat. I used the crumbs left in the bottom of a bag of tortilla chips (about 1 cup crushed) and thought it was plenty of chips. I put them on top of the cheese like the recipe says and liked it that way because they were crispy. Olives and tomatoes go great as a topping. Thanks for a great recipe.

No Bake Cookies VII

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I didn't actually taste these but had my 9 yr old boy scout group make these and they loved them and wanted the recipe to take home so they could make them again. I had them dust their hands good with powdered sugar before rolling them, the ones that did didn't have any trouble with them sticking to their hands.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Super fast and easy but my favorite part is that it didn't go soggy in the center like so many homemade pizza crusts. I doubled it and made one pizza and 4 large calzones. Yummy!

Eggplant Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
Delicious! I added some roasted garlic (3 cloves, finely chopped) and chopped the onion and sauteed it before layering it. I also substituted a mixture of monterey jack and mozzarella I had in the freezer for the Feta cheese and sprinkled some fresh basil on top before baking.

Fresh Peach Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This tastes great. I love fresh peaches! I increased the cornstarch by 1 T and I decreased the water but it still didn't set up great. Looked great until I cut it but still tasted great! Just realized I forgot the nutmeg, have to try again :)

Hot Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
I needed some sausage but didn't want to go to the store. I scaled to use 1 pound of meat and substituted ground turkey and ground cayenne instead of red pepper flakes. Tastes great and easy! Thanks for a great recipe.

The Perfect Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I needed something to take to a party and had crackers but no cream cheese. This was it! It was very good and made a lot which my family and I gobbled up. I still like the version with the cream cheese better but I guess this one is a little better for your health :)

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
Very good sausage, easy and good flavor. I added a little ground cayenne and by mistake added too much brown sugar. I'm sure I will like it better with the right amount of brown sugar. Thanks for a good recipe

Buttermilk Biscuits I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I used to bake biscuits for a fast food restaurant and I have some tips for those of you that have never made biscuits or that are struggling to get them right. 1. Never over-work your dough. Mix it only as much as you absolutely have to or it will be tough. 2. Don't add too much flour! flour can be affected greatly by the humidity in the air so what works today may not work tomorrow. Biscuit dough should NOT be easy to work with, it will be pretty sticky. If you add enough flour so that it is easy to work with your biscuits will be dry. 3. Your shortening should be left in small chunks (about the size of a pea) so that your biscuits will be flaky. You can substitute a little butter for part of the shortening to give a richer flavor but your biscuits won't raise as well. 4. Roll your biscuits to at least 1/2 in thickness (or more) to have nice high biscuits. When you cut them push straight down and straight back up. Twisting the cutter will cause your biscuits to raise unevenly. This is a good biscuit recipe, flaky and delicious but I'm still looking for the perfect flavor.

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
These are delicious and super easy! light and crisp just the way I like them. The only change I made was to separate the eggs and whip the egg whites then fold them in very last. Thanks for a great recipe!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
great and SUPER easy! I might try adding vanilla next time, but they are good as written. I will, like another reviewer make the dry part in bags with instructions to take camping instead of buying another bag of mix.

Winter Squash Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
These were so good! My husband and his brother (who would not eat squash if they were starving) devoured these rolls. They each ate several the night I made them and got up and had them for breakfast too. When they were gone DH asked when I was going to make more. Of course I didn't tell him about the squash and my daughter said I shouldn't tell him ;) I steamed the squash in the steamer and left the dough pretty soft. great! thanks

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
This was terrific! I have made lasagna several times using just dry noodles but this time I soaked them in warm water and I like this way much better. I was a little worried about the fennel seed but decided to use it anyway and try it and it was good. I didn't have fresh parsley so I used dry, about 1 1/2 t. The only other changes I made were using 1 qt of my home-canned diced tomatoes instead of the crushed and some frozen tomato puree instead of the paste. Since the total amount of tomatoes had been increased I did heaping spoons when measuring the basil and italian seasoning. Thanks for the great recipe.

Wonderful Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
Great waffles, i gave them a 4 because I like more of a crispy waffle and these were crisp right when you took them out of the waffle iron but quickly went soft. The flavor was great! The only change I made was adding about 1/4 cup more buttermilk since the batter at that point was pretty stiff.

Ginger and Rosemary Pork Marinade

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
Very good. My daughter made this for us, everyone liked it but my husband thought the lime and rosemary were too strong but then he likes things fairly bland :)

New England Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This was a big hit! Though a little sweet for my taste, next time I will reduce the sugar or maybe omit it. I put it all in the crockpot after adding the milk/flour mixture to the soup as I was waiting for company. I had to add a little more flour mixture to thicken it up a bit more and decided to add about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese to it. Good use of leftover ham.

Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
Flavor is good and these were easy to make. I doubled the recipe and used 5 cups fresh-ground wheat flour and the rest white bread flour. I used 3 cups water and 1 cup milk as milk makes a "softer" bread. I followed some other suggestions and made 10 (5 per batch) bowls and they were a bit too big, I think 6 would be perfect instead of 8. I might try using all water and less shortening next time for a crispier bread.

Hot Bean Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I did spice it up a bit so I give the recipe (as written) a 4. I used 3 T taco seasoning (I buy it in bulk but I believe that 2 T should be a 1/2 pkg) and one large can of refried beans. I tasted it before cooking and decided to add about 3 T chopped, bottled hot peppers and 1 t salt. I do like things a little more spicy but with a few changes this was great! I love the creaminess and flavor the cream cheese and sour cream give to this dish. Thanks

Yummy Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
very good. I did make some changes so I rated it 4 stars as is. I used my home bottled hot peppers which are generally much hotter than canned peppers, I used about 6 oz. of them. I also substituted montery jack cheese for 1/2 cup of the cheese and only used about 1/2 cup mayo (that just sounded like way too much mayo to me. I don't think there is any way this is 32 servings, I'm pretty sure I could eat most of it myself!
