Finnish Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
These were delicious. They are not overly sweet and were the perfect ending to my Finnish dinner tonight. I did not use the ground almonds on top because of a few health issues I'm dealing with right at the moment, so I subbed the almond extract for vanilla and omitted the ground almonds all together. This is a wonderful new addition that will be added to my baking rotation. Another bonus is that this recipe doesn't make an over abundance of cookies because I am using an RV oven and my oven is super small. Thanks for a delicious recipe!

General Tso's Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
Not too bad! I rather enjoyed this recipe...thanks for submitting it! I did change up a few veggies to use what I had on hand. But I finally found something I could use that bottle of banana ketchup I've had rattling around in my cupboard in...that's pretty awesome in my book.

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
I wish I could say that I liked these, but I didn't...the cereal added an "off" flavor that I can only describe as "saw-dust-y". Sorry, not a keeper in my book.

Slow Cooker Venison Stroganoff Meal

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
This was really easy and good. I have a neighbor who loves me and gives me elk steaks. So I used elk instead of venison. I did add in some wild chanterelle mushrooms that I dried last fall...tasty!

Creole Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
This was pretty dang good on a cold evening. I didn't use any celery, the sound of that didn't turn my crank, so I skipped it. I used Swiss cheese instead of Gruyere, because Gruyere is super expensive here. The other problem is, living in Washington, I can't find andouille that often, so I used kielbasa, instead. Great recipe and I'll use it again...thanks for submitting it!

Peanut Butter Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
This recipe was all right! I made a few swaps, I didn't use shortening, I used 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup butter because I wanted more of a peanut butter taste and I really just don't like to bake with shortening, at all. I didn't have vanilla, so I used some almond extract and it was a pretty good sub. Great recipe, I'll make this again!

Slow-Cooked Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I did a bit of tweaking in this recipe. I did not use bouillon, I used 2 cups of homemade chicken stock. I also used 3 cups of whole milk in place of the evaporated milk. I also added in about 1/2 cup of frozen corn kernels. I gave the potatoes, celery, carrot and onion a headstart in a skillet with some chopped bacon, too. All-in-all this was a decent recipe and I'll probably use a variation of it in the future. Thanks for submitting this.

Orange-Coated Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
This was pretty good. I am an admitted recipe tweaker, so I did play around with amounts of the seasonings. I used the zest of the entire orange, not just a teaspoon. I didn't have seasoned bread crumbs, just plain ones, so I used pink Himalayan sea salt, coarse ground black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and some chili powder. I also added a teaspoon of adobo sauce into the egg-orange juice mixture. I could have sworn I had some fresh parsley lying around, but I didn't, so I left that off...it wasn't missed and while it would add some fresh "pop" to the dish, it isn't necessary for the end result to be good. We really enjoyed this dish. The only thing I would recommend is turning the chicken half way through the cooking process because the bottoms of the pieces got rather brown...which is ok for me, but I could see where others might be turned off by this. I will make this again and use either some fresh thyme or tarragon instead of the parsley. Thanks for submitting a really good recipe that I get the honor of posting the first photo on!

Neapolitan Cookies

Pretty tasty! This is a great recipe and I'll make it again and play around with the flavors a bit more...like spumoni flavored or something. I had a lot of fun baking these!

Gumdrop Gems

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
I really enjoyed these...I made the mistake of including the purple gumdrops in the first dozen not realizing that they tasted like black licorice...that didn't impress me, but after I realized the error of my ways, these were a breeze to make and tasted great! Thanks for submitting a recipe that a cookie baking hater such as myself enjoyed making! Updated review: I make these cookies every single year. They are super easy, they look good on a goodie platter and people enjoy them.

Buckeye Balls II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
These couldn't be easier to make! I made a batch last night, we ate one each, and put the rest in the freezer for Christmas. These taste almost as good as a Reese's peanut butter cup! I'll have to say that this is one of the few recipes that I followed and didn't deviate from. It's absolutely perfect as written...5 stars from our RV!

$2000.00 Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This is a fantastic recipe. I am such a beginner in the baking dept. that it's ridiculous, and I had no problem, whatsoever, getting this pie crust to turn out for me. I used just shy of the water that was stated, but I live in the Pac NW and we have a ton of moisture in the air. I don't understand the low ratings on this recipe...I'll repeat myself by saying if I can do this, ANYONE can do this...so I'll just chalk those low ratings up to the user screwing up and not chilling the ingredients or something. This is now my new pie crust recipe, thanks so much for submitting it! I would add a picture, but the pie was gone in double time!!!

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
My only complaint with this recipe is that I had way too much filling for my deep dish pie crust. It baked up just fine, but I had to pour a good cup of filling down the sink. I also doubled the spices...when I put the amount that the recipe called for in, I couldn't even smell them in the filling. I've never made this particular recipe for pumpkin pie before, and I'm not entirely sure that I will make it again. I switched out dark brown sugar for the white sugar, which is something that I always do with pumpkin or apple pies, that is jsut my taste preference. I don't have complaints with the taste, that's great, my main issue was with how much filling I had to dump down the drain. The cooking time was spot on, so I will use that in another recipe. Oh, well...I'll just continue on with my search for the perfect pumpkin pie...thanks for trying, Libby's!

English Walnut Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I going to add one more 5 star review to this delicious pie. It's FANTASTIC! I did switch dark corn syrup for the light corn syrup and I like the added depth of flavor. I read a lot of the reviews that said they used maple syrup and I can totally see that happening and being really good, but I don't like maple. I did add an extra 1/3 cup of walnuts, but that's just my gig, I like walnuts. I really like pecan pie but it's go GAWDAWFUL sweet and rich that I can't eat more than a tiny sliver. This is not like that...it is sweet, yes, but, seriously, I could eat this whole pie...it's that good! It's great with a cup of coffee, which is what I'm doing right now. Thank you, Vivian, for submitting this delicious recipe and I'll be making another one of these for Thanksgiving.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
I have one reason and one reason only for giving this recipe 5 stars. You have done the impossible and created a recipe that #1: I actually can say that I enjoyed zucchini in (I am a zuke hater!) and #2: utilizes eggplant in a way that tastes good. I wasn't going to say that I hate eggplant, I just hadn't found any way that I liked until this recipe. I gambled on this and figured it was a 50/50 shot, my husband & I were either going to really like it or really hate it and it's a good feeling to say that we really liked it. I love the flavors of all the vegetables together. I liked how all of the veg on the upper layers leaked down and flavored the zukes and eggplant. This would be an awesome vegetarian main dish if one were to use sliced portabellos for the mushroom layer. I used chanterelle mushrooms because they are in season here and my neighbor is kind enough to give them to me. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
