Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I have made this about 8 times now. I thought that I would prefer the brown sugar version because I love carmel popcorn and actually don't really like regular popcorn at all, but after trying both ways I prefer with white sugar. The brown sugar tastes ok, but has a slight burnt flavor throughout. The white sugar version, I end up with only a few burnt tasting pieces depending on when I take it off the heat (no popping vs. a bit of popping still). I add salt at the end, as I put it in the bowl. Clean up is fairly easy and I am usually done the whole process only about 3-4 min after my hubby is finished making his microwave popcorn. When I made it for him- he loved it even though he thought it would not taste good. If I only make it for myself I use 3 Tbsp of sugar and oil and 6Tbsp of kernels. It makes about the same as a bag of microwave popcorn. Not exactly 1 serving, but 1 delicious bowl anyway!! Thanks for the recipe!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
This tasted good but I thought the sauce was very watery and there was a lot of it, although I did not make a lot of broccoli. I liked the flavor a lot though. I think that next time I might stir a little bit of corn starch into the soy sauce, maybe 1 tsp, before cooking it to help thicken the sauce. I would not boil it longer since the flavor might get too intense and sticky.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
This was delicious!! I did not use blueberries because I was just trying to find a way to use up a bunch of ripe plums. I followed the recipe exactly (although once I replaced the milk with buttermilk because I had no milk left) and it came out so nice- dense sweet cake, tart and delicious plums. My husband was not crazy about the plums (they get tart when you cook them) but he has a super sweet tooth and does not eat much fruit as it is. He did request that I make this cake without the fruit for his birthday (and frost it)- he loved that but it was way too sweet for me.

Oh my gosh!! I don't plan to make this again unless there is a very special occasion because I ended up eating all of it within about 2 days!! It was so good....TOO good.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
These really are the best!! I usually make them half size and bake them for about 12 min. I also like to use all or mostly whole wheat flour since no one can ever tell. Also, sometimes I use 1/2c butter and 1/4 cup of oil just to keep from using half of a stick of butter and they turn out just as good. This is my only chocolate chip cookie recipe forever. If you like crunchy cookies then keep looking, if not these are for you!!

Best Breakfast Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
Not that these cookies need another review, but they are just SOOO good, I had to put my 2 cents in. I only made a few changes, based on other reviews that I read, I used 3c of whole wheat flour and 1c of all purpose flour. I used 2 whole eggs and 2 whites. I wanted some of the nutrients from the yolks and we are not watching our cholesterol. I also changed the add-ins based on what I had in the house. I used raisins, dry apples and white chocolate chips. They turned out so so delicious that it is hard to stop at one. I had to put them in the freezer (and they freeze and thaw beautifully) just to keep us from eating them all in one day! My one year old and my husband love them.

Bran Muffins I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
These muffins turned out delicious!! I halved the recipe and still got 24 whole muffins out of it. I made a few changes based on other reviewer and what I had: I only used all bran since it was all I had, I used canola oil instead of shortening, which I halved with applesauce. I cut the sugar down and used a bit less than 1/2 cup of sugar and half a cup of honey (for the halved recipe) and I used milk with a bit of lemon juice in it to replace the buttermilk since I did not have buttermilk. The muffins were tender, moist and perfectly sweet. I plan to make this my new permanent recipe and keep them in the freezer for breakfasts and snacks.

Hot Italian Giardiniera

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
Not that this recipe needs another person to attest to how good it is, but I just had to leave a review! Grew up with homemade Italian Giardiniera and when my mom could not find her recipe, I used this one to satisfy a crazy pregnancy craving. I think it is better than my moms. Don't use any oil if you plan to can it, because of the risk of botulism, but you could always add oil once you open a sealed jar and keep it in the fridge. I don't think it will last long enough to see the inside of a sandwich!!

Chili Rellenos Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
Reviews seem to be love or hate, so I figured I would give my opinion in case there are others out there with similar tastes. My husband, who would probably never order Chili Rellenos at a restaurant said that the chilies were bitter to him (they were the canned ones) and he did not like the texture. I generally love Chili Rellenos, but I do not like omelets, especially the cheese/egg combo, and this was a little too close to an omelet flavor for my taste. I know most people love omelets, so I am sure most people will really like this.

Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
I took the advice of other reviewers and used the modified 1 cup oil, 2 cups sugar and 4 Tbsp cocoa, and I tried to make cupcakes. Tried. I am a very good cook, but something in this recipe did not work at all, the cupcakes had flat tops, were covered in giant holes like pancakes and tasted pretty bad. I suspect that there was some problem with the acid base ratio between the vinegar/cocoa/baking soda, but I don't really care to try this again and figure it out. Lets just say I am over my urge to try making a red velvet cake and will save my pretty frosting for something else tomorrow!

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
Ever since we got a new smoker/grill we make this recipe weekly. I don't change a thing and the ingredients are things that are always on hand. The only thing I do change is that I cut the liquid smoke in half since we cook the chicken on a smoker. Otherwise it is delicious, easy to make and fairly easy clean up.

George's Greek Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
I know that this is a fried chicken recipe, so I am sorry for messing with that part, but for anyone wondering how this tastes as a healthier recipe here it is. I cut the olive oil down to 2 Tbsp, keep everything else the same, marinate and grill on our indoor electric grill. It is the best darn chicken EVER. Ever.

Crab and Mushroom Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2006
This turned out pretty tasty. I read previous reviews before hand so I decided to change the condensed soup to Southwestern Pepperjack (best I could find) and I cooked the mushrooms until they started to brown. It was easy to make and tasted pretty good.
