Basic Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
Followed the advice of the reviewer who used butter instead of shortening. These were tasty, but they did not rise well. Will keep searching for the perfect biscuit recipe.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
These are terrific! I made them with white whole wheat flour and whole oats (not quick), so I was worried about the texture, but they were perfect. I threw in an extra 1/4 cup flour and rolled the dough slightly and they did not flatten AT ALL. I also love how many this recipe made! Cookies all night long!!

Kale and Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Really nice when the quinoa is added while hot so that the kale wilts a little...this also makes it easier for little teeth (my one-year old gobbled it up!). I would recommend doubling the dressing to serve a little on the side. Will definitely make this again!

Chicken and Lentils

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
The whole family loved this! I used fresh herbs instead of dried so I added them with the chicken instead of at the end. Green lentils probably could have cooked a bit longer, but I'm not sure since I don't have a lot of experience with lentils. They were great, though! And while Parmesan was not necessary, we did use just a little on top. This is going in the Recipe Box for sure!

Pierogi Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
this recipe is all noodle! totally disproportionate in my opinion. BUT it was DELISH when i used 8 potatoes and extra cheese, and still cut it to only 6 noodles (two layers -- I spread the onion mixture just under the top noodles). covered it when baking and wasn't dry at all. good even without the bacon and lots of fresh chives on top. used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Mmmm.

Pork Chalupas

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
I didn't have a shoulder but used a 4 lb boston butt. Idk what changes that would imply, but this was really good! I did add fresh garlic and used Sasson con Adobo instead of salt. Next time, I'll probably kick the heat up a bit. So far, we've eaten it on corn and flour tortillas, baked potatoes, and will try frying the flour tortillas a bit next time. Hoping it will freeze well, too...it made a lot!

Mozzarella-Stuffed Pesto Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
These were excellent! My Italian husband, whose grandmother's meatballs I hear about every time I even mention meatballs, couldn't get enough of them! I forgot the salt (I do that all the time), and based on the results, I probably will just leave it out in the future, too. Oh yes, I WILL be making these again!

Strawberry Torte

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
A huge hit! **Note: A pkg of ladyfingers is only 3oz...I think the recipe means 2 pkgs of 12 ladyfingers (not 12 oz).

Homemade Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I made the whole batch, thinking the extra would last...they did not! So good!!! I did not have shortening, so I used a stick of butter and 2 eggs. I used the Cream Cheese Frosting II by Janni on this site, which is nice and creamy and not too sweet.

Fiesta Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Pretty good, but I liked my older version better, without taco seasoning or picante sauce. I think I'll keep the picante sauce but leave out the taco seasoning in the future. I added roasted red pepper, and still think more veggies wouldn't hurt. I froze them so they would slice easier, but I'm not sure that was a good idea because they weren't as firm in the center as I'd like. Maybe I need a tougher tortilla. Will definitely make again.

Cheez-It® Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
Maybe my Cheez-Its weren't fine enough or something...the taste was pretty good, but the texture of the batter was messy and not crispy at all.

Blueberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
Love this salad! I used walnuts once and pine nuts another time because that's what I had on hand. This one's a keeper!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
These were pretty good...I did not have amaretto, which I bet would have made a yummy difference. I'm a big fan of the Roasted Beets 'n Sweets recipe on this site, and I've yet to find anything to beat that.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Mmmmm...Definitely going in the favorites box! Threw all the ingredients in a crock pot on low all day. Slaved over another soup that was not nearly as good. I usually regret trying new recipes when having company, but not this time. Super easy and very popular with our guests. Thanks!

Chestnut Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I'm giving this 4 stars because I think the reason I didn't care for it was my own fault. I used only 1 loaf and margarine instead of butter, and it was really greasy (definitely not dry!). The chestnuts were a pain in the butt but they were tasty, and I added golden raisins (I like a lot of "stuff" in my stuffing). I will definitely try again with real butter, and I may add more raisins or cranberries.

Cream Cheese Basil Summer Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
Drained the squash and cut the cream cheese in half. Nice change from the sauteed squash we usually eat. Will be using this recipe frequently.

Bronco Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
I made turkey burgers with this recipe...used a habanero-butter injection marinade instead of jalapenos, doubled the rest of the ingredients, & used minced garlic instead of powder. Made a very yummy burger (and almost twice as many as written because 1/2 pound burgers is just ridiculous in my opinion). Will definitely make again when I have fresh peppers on hand (that would have given it the extra kick it was lacking).
