Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I unfortunately did not care for these nor did my family. The flavor was a little bland so I added about 3 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, batter then tasted real good but when I baked them the texture was not right, I did use butter however in lieu of the shortening; that could have played a small roll in this less than stellar cookie.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
I had gone to one of my girlfriend's houses recently and she had this out (leftovers no less) along with a couple of other things for a quick dinner. I fell in love and asked where she got the recipe. I made this myself tonight with a few minor changes and WOW WOW WOW, it was just as good if not better. CHANGES: I used Olive Oil Cooking Spray, Lean Turkey Italian Sausage (Hot), Fat Free Half & Half, Diced tomatoes (w/basil, oregano & garlic) and a few shakes of Wondra for thickening (since I used the FF Half & Half). I love it, husband loves it, a total winner!! I am going over to my Sister-in-laws for Halloween and I'm going to make a batch of this and bring it along.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Loved these. Like some other reviewers I used 1 1/2 cups brown sugar (half dark half light). I also used a sugar substitute for the white sugar called Somersweet, it's by Suzanne Somers. Believe it or not it's delicious. It bulks, carmelizes and does what regular sugar does (unlike other sugar substitutes), it also doesn't have any weird aftertaste. These cookies are so good, I'm making my husband take a dozen and a half to work so we don't eat them all. I only got 3 dozen out of the recipe because I made my cookies a little on the larger size. Thanks for the great recipe.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Wow this was great!!! I scaled this down to serve two and it came out perfect. The only change I made to the actual sauce was that I added some liquid smoke. I also added some sliced red onion. I cooked in my little crock pot, shred it, put it back in and let it cook a little longer so the chicken could absorb all the sauce, I ended up adding a little bit of Wondra to thicken it up just a tad. Served this over baked potatoes with a little Ranch dressing on the side. This would also make a great sandwich or bbq chicken pizza or even a bbq chicken salad. Yum Yum Yum ~~ I will make this again and again. Thanks for a great recipe :-)

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I was craving scalloped potatoes and like so many other reviewers wanted a good recipe not laden with creams, milk, cheese, etc. I made it for dinner tonight and love love loved it, as did my husband. I got to eat comfort food without feeling guilty about it (I actually had 2nds) ~~ The only change I made was that I used light mayo, it was perfect. I used my mandolin to slice the potatoes super thin, I also sprayed my glass dish with Pam and covered with aluminum foil. Not greasy at all. I will make this again and again and have decided this will be a great side dish for Christmas Eve dinner with the family :-)

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
Very Very Good. The only thing I did different was I used 6 TB Sweetened Condensed Milk instead of the sugar. I like the extra creaminess and sweetness it gives.

Grilled Spiced Chicken with Caribbean Citrus-Mango Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
I really really liked this as did my husband. The only things I did differently was: Didn't add the anise seed (didn't have) and used fresh ginger instead of ground. I put the dry rub on first then patted in some fresh ginger and let marinade. I cooked this on the Foreman Grill for 6 minutes and perfection. The sauce was really good too, I added a little bit more honey than called for.......Very easy and yummy!! Thanks for a great recipe, I will make this again.

Wonderful Margaritas

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
This is just fabulous. I renamed this Margarita Punch and the only thing I do differently like some other reviewers is add some Triple Sec. Always a hit just be sure to put it in a pretty punch bowl because that's where all your guests will wind up, hangin' out by the punch bowl.........

Aunt Mary's Banana-Chocolate Chip Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
Excellent!! I did make a few minor adjustments however, they are as follows: I used 1 cube of softened butter instead of the shortening and I also added 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder (in addition to the baking soda). For baking: On 325, cover loosely w/tented foil, bake for 30 mins. Uncover, bake for 30 mins more, cover again w/tented foil for additional 10 minutes. Came out perfect!! If I don't do the foil it always browns too fast and it's raw in the middle, I of course have to cook it longer and it ends up getting a little on the black side with the ends hard as bricks!! If you too have this problem, try my method. Works like a charm ~~~
