Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
Loved this recipe. I followed the suggestion of another and simmered it uncovered and it thickened up nicely. It was a little bit sweet for my taste so I plan on halving the sugar next time.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
Awesome cookie!! I made the cookies and then read the reviews so i was concerned that i'd have problems but i have to say that it worked perfectly! i followed the instructions and it went according to plan. One reviewer noted that user her stand mixer for the dough made a difference and i have to agree. i think ensuring the sugars and butter and pb are adequately creamed makes all the difference.

Chocolate Oil Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
The texture of this cake is nice but it's not very chocolatey and has an off flavor to it. The next time I want cake, I'll just wait until I have eggs on hand.

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Too sweet and too much like very thick sludge. It's nothing like I was expecting and even a small amount was too much.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Good but not great. It was basic cornbread but nothing to write home about.

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I made the entire recipe as instructed except for one thing, I halved butter in the struesel. Another reviewer was right, it is far too much. It was tasty but don't go to heavy on the topping, it's overpowering at times.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Good muffins. Definitely use liners as they are extremely difficult to get out (I used silicone and it STILL stuck). The topping is enough for double the number of mufffins. Mine spread but not too badly, it made for a pretty muffin top and dwarf looking muffins. Not the prettiest ones I've made.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
This recipe is tasty as is but the flavor was a little flat for me. I sauteed some bell pepper, jalapeno and onion and then threw that in the blender with the soup. That addition made this soup just perfect for me. Really fast and good.

Coconut-Cornflake Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
These are not bad but they are very sweet. I love sweet stuff so I completely disregarded the reviews warning of this. If you like coconut candies, you'll love this. If you're looking for cookie in the traditional sense, this will be a bit of a disappointment.

Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
Good and quick breakfast. It's got everything in one pan so it eliminates multiple pans and it's quite tasty. We added some jalapeno to ours while the potatoes were cooking for some added kick.

Creamy Corn Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
Yummy soup! I made exactly as instructed, velvety smooth and filling. I can see adding some grilled chicken breast to it but it's good for me as is. I made this on a stormy night. :)

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
I love how tender this chicken is and the seasoning is just right. No sticky element to it but delicious just the same.

Scim's Fettucine Alfredo with Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I subbed half and half for the cream and it still thickened up nicely with the addition of the parmesan. Also added a little white pepper and salt.

Spicy Garlic and Pepper Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Nice and spicy. I feel like it needs something more. Possibly minced ginger, thinly sliced celery, and maybe even some crushed peanuts. As is still pretty good.

Strawberry Orange Coconut Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Ahhh!!! I feel like I'm on a beach when I close my eyes and sip this. So yummy! I couldn't find coconut milk in the store but I did find cream of coconut. I don't know how close they are but I decided to use 1/4c cream of coconut and 1/4c skim milk to sub. I blended that first to make sure it was smooth then threw everything else together. This is my favorite!

Mango-Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Great smoothie! The banana and yogurt make it so smooth and the mango flavor is really prominent. I also love that it doesn't require ice since it seems we never have any on hand.

Mongolian Strawberry-Orange Juice Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Nice and refreshing. Very much like a slush and not very smooth. I agree with other reviewers, it really needs a banana. Also, I omitted the sugar and we didn't miss it.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I had to make several adjustments for this to be good for my family. Plain, poached chicken is extremely bland so I cubed it before cooking and then sauteed it with salt, and onion and garlic powder. Then fat and calories in this is too much to take so I just used the 98% fat free soups and no one can tell the difference. I layered as directed but the onion on the top layer doesn't cook through. The rest of the casserole is cooked through and then there are these odd pieces of raw onion. I hate raw onion so I had to cover with foil and baked nearly twice as long as the recipe instructs. End result was good but will definitly finely dice the onion, saute the chicken, continue using the low-fat soup, and cover the dish while baking next time.

Brown Sugar Chocolate Crackle Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Great for chocolate lovers. These taste exactly like a recipe I made off of a Baker's baking chocolate box one time. They tasted as great then as they do now.
