Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
I used some blueberries I had leftover in the freezer. I also added some vinegar to 1% milk to make buttermilk. I don't like using butter, so instead I used non-hydrogenated margarine. The muffins were so yummy! I love how the top was crunchy from the sugar. I will definitely be making more of these soon! :)

Conchas (Mexican Sweet Bread)

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
Mine didn't turn out looking like the pictured ones. I didn't add any crisscrossing so maybe that's why. They tasted like cinnamon buns. I found they tasted the best when I cut them in half, put some margarine on them and placed them in the microwave for 20 seconds. I would definitely make these again sometime. :)

Chinese-Style Peanut Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
I've never had a Chinese peanut cookie before, so I'm not sure how they're suppose to taste. However, I made this recipe and did not like the cookies at all. They were way too sugary! The dough was very crumbly and I had a hard time keep the cookies from falling apart. They didn't turn golden even after being in the oven for 10 minutes. I would not make these again.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
I had a craving for Bran Muffins after having them in the hospital. I know that sounds funny, with hospital food's reputation, but these muffins were delicious! I found this recipe and had to try it. The only change I did was adding 2 teaspoons of vinegar to 1% milk to make buttermilk. They turned out fantastic! This recipe is a keeper!

Jumbo Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
I didn't see this as a breakfast cookie, other than it has cereal in it, which I left out. I felt the cookie wouldn't be as yummy with cereal in it. I halved the recipe, used "Just Peanuts" natural peanut butter, and dark chocolate chunks. I scooped the batter onto a cookie sheet and didn't bother flattening them out. They did that own their own. I found these cookies to be delicious and would definitely make them again!

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
I made a few changes based on what chocolate I had. I used dark chocolate chunks, and dark chocolate cocoa powder. I replaced butter with non-hydrogenated margarine. I only added about 1/2 a teaspoon of instant coffee. (I wanted to taste chocolate, not coffee.) For me the mixture setup after 15 minutes sitting out on the counter. I dropped the cookies by the spoon onto a cookie sheet and baked for 8 minutes. They were delicious! This recipe is a keeper!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
I made some changes in the recipe, due to what I had on hand. First I halved the recipe. I used 1% cottage cheese and light sour cream. I added shredded medium cheddar cheese, Parmesan, and provolone. (About a cup altogether.) I added about a 1/8 teaspoon of salt and pepper. I had Ritz crackers, and used them instead of bread crumbs. I would definitely make this again!

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
I thought this bread was yummy. However, I found it to be a little dry. I made mini loaves instead of 1 large loaf. When I give them out as gifts I may add some simple syrup to them to add moisture, as well as a simple glaze over top for presentation. I would make this bread again. :)

Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
I did make some changes. Instead of using bread crumbs, I used sea salt and pepper croutons and some original flavor baked crackers. (You can see the crackers in the picture.) I used sweet and sour sauce with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. I skipped out on the salt and pepper since the croutons had that already. I topped the salmon cakes with sweet and sour sauce and served them with the baked crackers. I would make this again.

Scrambled Egg and Pepperoni Submarine Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I used garlic and herb sub buns. I did toast them in the pan before frying the pepperoni and eggs. I used medium cheddar cheese instead of American. I thought this sandwich was all right, but felt it was missing something..

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly and my cookies came out flat. I added more flour and finally got cookies that didn't collapse when I took them out of the oven. I added 1/2 cup more flour. I would make these again. :)

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This recipe wasn't bad. My hubby wouldn't even try it. My daughter didn't eat any either. I was the only one to eat the fish. I thought it was better than recipes that call for the fish to be baked with lemon juice. If I made it again, I'd try marinating it in the honey mixture. The pecans were a nice addition. I didn't notice the taste of the parsley. I didn't think salt and pepper were necessary, so I didn't use either one. I would attempt this recipe again.

Melt In Your Mouth Blueberry Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I have about 2 pounds of blueberries sitting in the freezer and I had no idea what to do with them, until I came across this recipe. The only change I made was the glaze on top. 1/4 cup of powder sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of milk, stir and drizzle on top of the cake. This cake is so goooooooooooood! It makes just enough. I can't wait to make another and share with more family and friends! :)

Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
I used grape tomatoes. I didn't have any pine nuts, so I used pumpkin seeds. The flavor was light and tasty. My 18 month old loved this salad and so did I. :)

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
I didn't have any butterscotch chips. I thought about using butterscotch pudding, but in the end I skipped it. I added the margarine to the brown sugar and went from there. I added about an 1/8 cup of unsweetened, shredded coconut. My brownies were done at 25 minutes. I got a light, fluffy, cake like brownie. It wasn't too rich either. Just right. I would make these again.

Scrambled Eggs Done Right

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Instead of mayo, I added creamy ranch dressing. In my opinion, it's better than the plain mayo.

Leftover Chicken Croquettes

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
I added spices. I used 1 cup of chopped rotisserie chicken (I cooked), 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley, 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs and 1 egg. I also added a dash of salt and pepper. I shaped them into 2 patties and cooked them on medium heat with a lid over them, flipping them once. I skipped the white sauce, and served them with marble cheddar cheese. I didn't find them bland or dry.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
The first time I made this I added onion soup mix. It was good. ~~~~ This time around I added a half package of onion soup, and a half package of stove top stuffing mix instead of the crackers. Still yummy and I'll keep making this recipe every time I want meatloaf for dinner.

The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
I could taste the baking soda. I hate that. So, I didn't have any eggs. I made the cookies anyway, and they were good. What do eggs provide? I did pick up some eggs. I divided the dough in half and added 1 egg to 1 half of the dough. I cooked 6 cookies. I found that the cookies without the eggs weren't flat in appearance. The cookies with the egg went flat. I felt that I could taste the baking soda more in the batch with egg, than the batch without. I may leave the egg out all the time! I won't make these cookies again. I will try making another recipe, only without the eggs.
