Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
I thought these were ok. I'd rather have a traditional almost shortbread like pb cookie. eh.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
I made this according to the recipe. It is a good "jumping off point." I LOVE lemon desserts, and let me tell you - this does NOT have enough lemon flavor. It's just a hint. The crust is good- but 20 minutes was a little too long in the oven for me - it got a little brown on the bottom- I'd probably try a different dish next time. There was PLENTY of crust - and a little less lemon topping. It was OK - but next time, I'd cook the crust less, maybe 15 mins, and probably double the lemon or use lemon zest.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
This came out great. I scaled it down for one loaf (and 2 bananas) by changing the servings to 9. Just remember, that doesn't change the sour cream measurements, so you have to do a little math. It was delicious and moist. I followed the directions exactly. Plenty of banana flavor.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
It really does taste like taco meat. I made mine a little too salty, but probably my own fault. Nice change if you don't want to have red meat!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I followed others' advice and cooked them for longer and broiled them at the end. I also used olive oil instead of melted butter and tossed the potatoes in it. They came out great!!! Didn't stick to the pan.

Fried Pork Chop

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I took the advice of some other reviewers and put adobo on the pork before the flour. I also added onion and garlic powder and parsley to the flour. It came out GREAT! I gave it 4 stars because I could see why you would want to add some more seasoning.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
Based on ease of recipe - this came out great! I was really expecting it to just taste like beef, but it had a good flavor. I made it exactly according the recipe. (I didn't have beef broth, but used a beef bullion) Give this a try before you go braising the beef - if you want a simple dish. It was really easy and quick. I used the crock pot on high and it was done in 4 hours!

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly - except I might have used more beef. I think maybe next time I'll use 2 jars of pepperoncinis or use a packet of italian seasoning like I saw in another recipe (or use less beef!). It tasted very pot-roasty. I cooked it on high in the slow cooker and it came out really tender.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
These were just ok. The oatmeal part came out too dry and not as chewy as I hoped. I'll keep looking for a raspberry bar recipe.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I used less carrots and added peas and corn. I sauteed onion and garlic before cooking the beef, and I also used beef bullion cubes instead of the broth. (I also added some Worcestershire sauce.) My husband loves this! It was really easy.

Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Pretty easy and a nice way to use boring brownie mix. The cream cheese for some reason wouldn't get smooth but they still turned out well. I might use a smaller dish next time to get a thicker brownie or use less cream cheese because the cheesecake part is pretty thick.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
If you are looking for a cakey light brownie, THIS IS NOT IT!!!! These are the fudgiest most delicious brownies. I've already made them twice. I didn't have chocolate chips either and they still were DELICIOUS. They are so good warm with ice cream or cold, or with chocolate icing. This is THE perfect brownie recipe. Make sure you sift the cocao, bc the first time I made it, I didn't and it had little pebbles of cocoa throughout the dough. PERFECT brownies.

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This was pretty good. I doubled the broth/soup. I also added yellow summer squash. (I sauteed all the veggies first, and browned the chicken in there and then shredded it. THEN I added all the liquids.) I followed someone else's advice about the dumplings and added some fat free half and half to the dough until it was sticky. They came out LIGHT AND FLUFFY. Unlike someone else's review, I used skim milk and it did NOT curdle. The dumplings came out perfect with the extra liquid to make it sticky. This is my GO TO recipe for the dumplings now!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
Don't get mad at me! I changed the recipe a little bit because I wanted to make it healthier- and I can tell you it worked! I didn't use ANY oil - I used sweetened (it's all I had) applesauce and 1/2 C ground flax seed with 2 tbsp water. I also used LIGHT sour cream. They came out really ugly, and I was afraid they would be really dense. BUT THEY WERE LIGHT AND FLUFFY! Even with the flax seed! They were ugly, but tasted good. My only complaint - maybe I would have added more blueberries. (I used frozen.)

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I like to stay as close to the original recipe when I first try a recipe on here, and like many others have written, this recipe is a very good place to start. The basic idea was great. Just a little bland. I added mushrooms and extra spinach. I'll most likely make it again, but next time I'll probably add more seasoning. It was a nice light breakfast and VERY easy. One dish. I like that. :) Like others, I started on the stovetop for 7 mins, and threw it in the oven at 400 for about 10 mins more. Came out perfect.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Spicy, but a little boring. I stuck pretty closely to the recipe. I subbed the cream with fat free half & half, used rigatoni, and didn't have green onions. I have a hard time believing those things would have improved it, had I included them. It was edible, but I don't know if I'll make it again.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This, to me, is a 4 star recipe because it needed a little help. The taste is pretty good. Like a few others, I shredded the chicken. Definitely don't use plain chicken. Also, the spinach layer is too spinachy. I suggest mixing the spinach with the ricotta or something. I had a feeling the ricotta would be too plain, so I mixed in an egg and some s&p and parsley. I just wish I had followed my instinct with the spinach! I used the 2 C Mozzarella in the sauce, and didn't use the other 2 C. The parm & ricotta was enough for the other layers. Pretty tasty, it will probably be better in the morning. OH, and I used NO bake lasagna noodles. That probably saved a lot with the prep time. It didn't seem to take too long. I cooked it for 40 mins covered, and then 10 mins uncovered at 425.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This is a pretty good pumpkin bread. Very moist, not overly flavored or underflavored. I followed the recipe exactly in regards to the spices. I had no oil, so I melted shortening. I also added about 4 heaping teaspoons of ground flaxseed and put chopped walnuts on the top. It made 2 good sized loaves that needed to be cooked for about 65 minutes.

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
Eh. Not that great. Followed the recipe. Kind of weird. If you want something equally as easy but WAY better tasting, try the baked teriyaki chicken on this site.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Like a lot of people, I used orange juice instead of water. Unlike another reviewer, I did NOT have to flatten them. They flattened like pancakes. Maybe it has to do with the altitude... When I did slightly flatten them, they turned out like gingersnaps you would buy at the store. (Only soft) :) If you freeze the dough it makes it VERY easy to handle. They are so delicious! Ok, I have to update this. I made them again. The first time I made them with crisco instead of margarine. They came out flat and chewy. DELICIOUS. The second time, I tried it with margarine and they COMPLETELY stuck to the airbake cookie sheet. Something I've NEVER experienced. BUT they came out puffy and VERY SOFT. (Just broken from scraping them off the sheet) Also, I tried them with the crisco and a little bit of brown sugar because I ran out of white, and they were TOO SWEET. Stick with the white sugar. I put the sugar cookie glaze on them with orange extract, but I definitely think they're better on their own. ALSO, the dough was MUCH more manageable with CRISCO rather than margarine - which to ME, is WORTH it. Hope this helps someone!
