Excellent Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Very NICE recipe! The vanilla and cinnamon give it a wonderful flavor. I was determined to follow as written but I got concerned when mixing the ingredients about the amount of salt and the amount of flour-so I added about 1/8 cup of flour and went with 1/2 tsp of salt instead of a whole tsp. Also, I substituted a couple of handfulls of raisins for the nuts. I used a larger spoon when dropping the dough, and wound up adjusting the cooking time to 16 minutes. I am a firm believer in lining pans with parchment paper, so when I was tinkering with the timing I kept checking until I could see that the tops of the cookies were not glossy anymore and the edges around the bottom were lightly browned-this yields a moist cookie with a faint crispness at the bottom which is my idea of cookie heaven. These cookies turned out beautifully and this recipe is now officially how I will obtain my oatmeal raisin cookie fix for the rest of my life. Good one, thanks for sharing!

Tasty Tuna Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
Very nice! I of course made modifications, but this is a delicious, CHEAP, FAST and EASY basic recipe which makes it a winner. I nixed the peas, added a few chopped sundried tomatoes, and used 3 chopped fresh basil leaves instead of dried. I also used rotini pasta-it's easier to get into the kid than fettucine. Rave reviews from the family, will make again. Thanks for sharing!!!

Oven Beef Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Amazing, delicious, simple! I've been making this stew in the fall since I found the recipe in "Tried and True Favorites" about 7 years ago and it always hits the spot! Great recipe, exactly as written, thanks for sharing!

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
WOW! I was raised to believe that banana pudding must hang out in the fridge for at least 24 hours to be worth a darn. I had a birthday emergency today for a banana pudding fiend however, so I gave this recipe a shot and had very low expectations-I took a little taste after mixing the ingredients and wasn't impressed. After two hours in the fridge, I served this and WOW WOW WOW was it incredible!!! The only thing that was wrong is that the cookies were still a tiny bit crunchy but my guests actually said they had never had it this way before but really liked it. The best part is that it took a ridiculously small amount of time to make. I am SO glad I found this recipe, right on!!! Thanks for sharing!

Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
LOVE THIS! I am not an enchilada eater by nature, but at the State Fair of Texas this year, a merchant called "House of Gold Gifts" was giving samples of this soup and selling a packaged dry mix. The chicken, enchilada sauce, broth, and cheese were all that we used when making the packaged mix from the fair. The recipe here calls for added water and garlic which we did not use with the mix we bought at the fair but I think are excellent additions. For a tasty touch, we crushed tortilla chips and placed at bottom of bowls before adding the soup. Highly recommend this recipe and thank GOODNESS I don't have to go online to buy the mix now. HOORAY! Thanks for posting this tasty recipe!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2001
Took me a little while to make it and it was messy, but good heavens was it delicious. Also, the "meat mixture" makes a great chip dip alone! Terrific recipe, Kathi!

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
This has been our family's "spring pie" for the last 7 years, I make it every Easter. I've made it according to instructions and have tinkered with it-it always turns out best when I make it according to the recipe. I've tried using splenda in place of the sugar-it's okay, but the flavor is better with the bad stuff. Let's face it, if you are going to be evil and eat pie, you might as well go all the way on down with it! Also, it seems that the consistency of the cream topping is a bit runnier when I use Splenda. Next, I've tried doubling up to make TWO pies. DO. NOT. DO THIS. Unless you are mixing it with a stand mixer. Because the crust piece is so thick, it will twirl up the beaters on your hand mixer and create an unholy mess. Mix the crusts pie at at a time for the best, least messy, easiest to operate result. And finally, I have on a few occaisions, gotten lazy and zapped the cream cheese in the microwave to "soften" it. If you do this and over soften, then the cream will be runny. If you like the cream topping to be more substantial and formed, allow the cream cheese to soften naturally. This really is an excellent pie-again, it has always turned out best for me when I follow the recipe as written, and it's my family's most requested pie when I crash their parties in the spring and summer. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2000
This pie turned out beautifully! The blend of spices was appealing, but not overwhelming. And the Streusel topping was a nice, and unusual touch! Great recipe, Cindy B.!

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
LOVE THESE! I appreciate how customizable this recipe is. After reading other reviews, I decided to try using my own biscuits versus the refrigerated type. I’d never done this before, but I mixed dough for one batch of biscuits using a ready-made biscuit mix. I kneaded it together in a big lump, rolled it out, and tore off 11 palm-sized chunks-I rolled them into balls and then flattened them into the cups on my muffin pan, using a spoon to create sort of a well inside my dough cups. I decided to use sage sausage as my sausage mixture without the other veggies-and made the rest of the recipe per the instructions. Used a glass pyrex measuring cup to pour eggs into the muffin cups. Turned out beautifully! We’ve refrigerated the leftover pies and discovered that a 10 second zap in the microwave does the trick for those. Fun, delicious recipe, thanks for sharing!

Ham and Mushroom Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2000
This is a recipe definitely best prepared the night before. I winged it and tried to do it when I first woke up. It has a few steps too many for that. BUT, the flavor was terrific, especially the cheese sauce with the onions. It was like a giant baked omelet, and my entire family gave it RAVE reviews. Thanks for sharing this one, Danielle! It was terrific!

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
This was a great recipe. I seasoned 4 chicken breasts with garlic salt and baked them at 350 for about 40 mins to start with. Also, I didn't have bread crumbs, so I toasted some bread and crumbled it into the melted butter. It turned out GREAT! Husband RAVED and baby liked it too. Thanks for sharing!

Easy Deviled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2001
The flavor of this dish was terrific. I did use seasoned stuffing mix, but I think next time I will try with Italian bread crumbs instead. The stuffing mix was a bit too chunky. Thanks for sharing this recipe Monica. My fiance enjoyed it and so did I!

Best Apple Crisp Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
Not what I was expecting...like many of the other reviewers, I had a crumbly situation with the crust. That said, I was in a hurry and wanted something apple-y and cinnamon-y and this recipe fit the bill. It was pretty quick to make and had a great flavor. In a pinch, I'd make this recipe again although if I was having a pre-meditated apple crisp urge, I'd go with one of the more traditional recipes calling for oats. Pretty good for what it is, thanks for sharing!
