Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
DELICIOUS!!! I used the other's recommendations for grinding up the oatmeal first. Then, I realized my strawberries weren't frozen! To thicken it up, I used a half cup of KALE and to make it colder, I threw in a few ice cubes. I love putting (sneaking) either kale or spinach into our smoothies. The big guy never notices and I love keeping us healthy!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Usually, I'll read the other reviews to see what is recommended to be altered, added or detracted. All I had to read on this recipe was that it was a well-loved recipe found in her Grandmother's recipe box and I figured it had to be amazing. Didn't change a thing, and the only thing I added was grade A, dark amber syrup I purchased in VT two days prior. Delicious and going into my RB as well. Thanks for sharing!

Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Excellent recipe! I added a generous amount of lemon extract, in addition to the vanilla, a cup extra blueberries (I had some frozen ones we had picked fresh this last summer, let them thaw over-night) and I opted for the brown sugar streusel ***since there wasn't a mention as to how full the muffin cup should be (and some batters differ) I will tell you that 3/4 full is NOT full enough. Heap it in.***

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
I read @Ally99's review, added her changes (less water, more crumble) and it was AMAZING. the best review i received from my family over any previous crumble. the only thing i would recommend is not recipe related, but mess related. when i cut butter into things such as pie crumble or crust, i have a surplus box of latex gloves (the thin kind) that i use and put on so that i can crumble and knead the butter into the other dry ingredients w/o getting my hands messy and it works better than any utensil. when done, just peel off and throw away. back to the crumble. it's so good, it's worth adding an extra two miles to the morning run! there's sooooo much butter and sugar!

Pasta Milan

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
this recipe gets five stars from me because it was 1. delicious & 2. my boyfriend made it for me for valentine's day. normally, he sticks to the grilling of things and on special occasion, an old family recipe for lasagna. the fact that he was able to put this together really impressed me. i think he did grill the chicken and the asparagus. he also paired the dinner with the strawberry and avocado salad found here (except he used raspberries instead). .tj.

Luscious Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
this recipe was incredibly easy - i agree with the others, for using the pre-made pie crusts and different creamed soups. i have made this twice now and both times used campbell's cream of celery and cream of potato. these both worked very well and the flavor is superb! i added both garlic salt and garlic powder, as well as a LOT of fresh ground pepper (we like our pepper). i also cut up four stalks of celery and a cup of baby carrots and five tablespoons of finely diced yellow onion. i don't know if you have a costco, but i especially like using half of one of their roasted chickens. the meat is very moist and really ads to the homemade taste. my man-friend likes this just as much as he likes my other gourmet recipes. which is great, because it is so easy! thanks for posting this recipe!

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
these cookies are ab-fab! i added both vanilla and almond extract, skipped the salt and used a cherry preserve. i also doubled the recipe based on the other reviews. it yielded just about fifty. my dog thinks they are pretty good too and wishes more would drop onto the kitchen floor! .tj.

Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
i wasn't overwhelmed by this recipe, although my family was. except my mother. and who can ever please them anyway? if i did make it again, i would make the bread squares smaller and toss them with the egg mixture, to ensure a thorough coating. i will use my own mixed berry syrup recipe next time too. more syrup-y.

Butterscotch Drops

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
these were fantastic! and super easy - ten minutes tops. i put them in the little truffle cups for more even distribution.. they tend to spread out if not contained. i also used the crunchy pb as the other review recommended. yummers! .tj.

Creamy Oriental Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
i recently was in atlanta and went to a fantastic sushi bar. i came home craving the salad dressing that they served there. this is as close as i can find, and it's delicious! i did double the soy sauce, used fresh ginger and added a fresh garlic clove for a little kick. thank you for posting this recipe - i love it! .tj. ps - for the person who doesn't know what to use it for here are a couple of suggestions: 1. salad - use fresh mixed greens, add shredded carrots, sugar peas. top with those little asian crispy noodles and sesame seeds. 2. marinade - this makes a fantastic marinade for fresh baked or grilled halibut (use more soy and the fresh ginger and garlic if doing so).
