Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
I've made these a few times now, per directions, and they are PERFECT. Love the giant cookies they make! This has become a go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe for me; it's either these or the good old Toll House recipe. Tonight I substituted chopped up Belgian truffles for the chocolate chips (approx 13 oz, by weight) and that took it over the top- you guys, these are officially the best cookies in all of ever.

Crixxie's Ranch Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
This was really good! Only things I changed were: I added 1/2 tsp of black pepper and garlic powder instead of the listed amounts- we like our spices! And I also cut the chicken breasts up a bit bigger, maybe 1.5-2" chunks instead of 1", and cooked for an additional 5 minutes or so. These came out so moist and tender, I'm pretty sure I'll be making this again real soon :)

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Love it. I make this with turkey instead of beef, because I don't eat red meat, and it's wonderful. I also took the advice of others and sauteed the onions before adding into the mix as well as adding a bit of Worcestershire sauce (which really helps the ground turkey, even moreso than it would help ground beef), but aside from those tweaks I follow the recipe to a T, it comes out great every time.

Strawberry Romaine Salad I

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
So, I saw this recipe and decided I had to try it. My husband said "EW STRAWBERRY SALAD GROSS!", but begrudgingly agreed to at least try it if I was going to go through the effort to make it. guess who decided strawberries in salads aren't a bad thing? Now, he asks for it all the time. It's surprisingly delicious, and very different from the usual garden salad. Definitely give it a shot if you're on the fence about whether or not to make it.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This was great. Simple, easy, and delicious. The white meat really does come out moist- I couldn't believe it. Rubbed the chicken down with a smashed clove of garlic (which got thrown into the bird with the celery and stuff) because we love garlic in our house and pretty much use it in everything; other than that one tiny change, followed the recipe to a T. Which means I went out and bought margarine instead of using butter. Next time I'm making 2 birds at a time so we can make soup or chicken salad or something afterward- there wasn't much meat left with one bird because everyone had seconds.

Remoulade Sauce a la New Orleans

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
Made without the olives or the capers because we hate them both; this sauce still came out excellent.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
AMAZING. Just like the dip we had in the restaurant, only without having to go out to get it. To cut down on fat, I used fat free cream cheese and the "healthy" version of Ragu's alfredo sauce. I've never bothered to roast garlic before, but I decided to do it for this recipe, and I think it was well worth it. It's great. I'm having a little bit tonight, and have portioned the rest out into tupperware containers to freeze and serve whenever I want it. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
I'll never buy that boxed garbage corn muffin/bread mix again. This is PHENOMENAL. I had some fine-ground cornmeal on hand and was looking for a recipe to use some of it up in, and I was shocked at the difference between this and the store-bought mix. This recipe made THE BEST cornbread I've ever had.

Grilled Cilantro Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
I generally cook my fish with garlic and butter, so this was a welcome change. I thought it might be too weird to eat, what with the eclectic ingredients, but it turned out great. We've made it twice now- once on the grill and once inside on the griddle- and will make it in the future. If you're tired of the same old seafood recipe, this is a nice break.

These are insanely good. I followed the recipe exactly, and the results were excellent. Making these will be a new holiday tradition in our house for sure.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
Cut the recipe in half, and we had to sub 1 can of black beans for kidneys cause we didn't have enough- these came out awesome. A new family favorite- next time we'll probably quadruple (the recipe instead making only half the recipe there were NONE).

Muir Glen® Salsa Guacamole

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
I can't vouch for the salsa part, as I didn't make it, but I really liked the way the guacamole came out! Great simple recipe- just what I was looking for!

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
We mae this all the time. I like a little more garlic, and I use ricotta instead of cottage cheese cause I just can't get past the clumps (yuk). A new family favorite- I've also used the stuffing in lasagna and manicotti as well, all with great results.

Quick Classic Gazpacho

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
I made this with fresh roma tomatoes instead of canned and it's awesome. Exactly what I was looking for in a gazpacho- I haven't had a decent one in about 12 years now. I htink next time I'll try the canned tomatoes though, just to save on time.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
Excellent recipe- everyone loved it, even the sworn banana bread haters in my house(they don't like the nuts you usually find in banana bread). I added some vanilla and cinnamon, but other than that followed the recipe to a T and it came out perfect. Will definitely make agin- and again- and again.
