Beef Yakitori

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
This was delicious! I made almost as the recipe stated. My husband and I are not big lemon fans, so I reduced the amount of lemon juice. I did not have green onions, but I added some thinly sliced onions to the marinade. Also, we didn't feel like getting the grill set up for this little amount of meat, so I cooked it in a frying pan. After the meat was cooked (we like our steak medium), I removed the steak & set aside on a plate. Then, I added a little more oil, to the pan, and some already cooked brown rice. Then, I added sweet soy sauce, a little more ginger, sesame seeds and frozen peas. Once the peas were cooked (just a few minutes), I added the steak back to the pan. We had a one pan hit! My husband & I loved it!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
These were so easy and great tasting! I was out of all-purpose flour, so I subbed self-rising. Because of this, I used less than a teaspoon of baking powder. I increased the sugar slightly. I used salted butter instead of shortening, so I, also, omitted the salt. After I mixed the wet and dry ingredients, the batter seemed a little thick, so a added another splash of milk. The final result was light, fluffy, and delicious pancakes!

Gingerbread Boy Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I was making gingerbread cookies for my class, so I decided to try this recipe (because I've never been a big gingerbread fan, but I like a softer cookie). I did double the spices as others suggested, and I added some nutmeg and cloves. The kids loved them (said I was the best teacher ever), and my husband said that they were by far the best gingerbread cookie he's ever tasted!

Grilled Zucchini Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
These were great! I did make a few changes....I didn't feel like starting up the grill for these only, so I lined a baking sheet with foil and put a cooling rack on top of the foil. I dipped the zucchini in the garlic butter (both sides) and laid on top of the cooling rack. Then, I made sure to put the little pieces of garlic on each slice. I put my oven on broil (high) and let them cook for a few minutes and then flipped them. I did not have any tomato sauce in the house, but I did have tomatoes. So, I thinly sliced a tomato and topped each slice of zucchini with one. Then, I returned to the oven for a few minutes. Next, I topped with a turkey pepperoni and then mozzarella cheese and returned to the oven until the cheese go bubbly. It was delicious!

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
These were great! I did make a few changes: I used half brown sugar & half white sugar, added a little less than 1/4 tsp of nutmeg, and reduced the baking soda to 1-3/4 tsp and added 1/4 tsp of baking powder. I, also, left out the raisins, coconut and nuts, because I didn't have them in the house. I left the skin on the apple, since it was being grated (most of the nutrients are in the skin). The end result was delicious. Even my husband who doesn't like carrots liked it!

Basil Tomato Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I tried this recipe (with a few modifications) last night, & my husband & I loved it! The rolls were moist and flavorful. I read a review that had a hard time getting the dough to rise. I used a tried & true method that I was taught when I 1st started baking bread - it hasn't failed me yet! I combined the yeast & warm water, as well as 1 tsp of the sugar. I let that sit until there was a thick layer of foam on top (about 10 mins). Then, I proceeded with the directions in the recipe. I did add dried parsley & cracked pepper to the dough. I, also, used Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour. I was making these to accompany a salad with grilled salmon & only had enough tomatoes for the salad, so I used a 12oz can of diced tomatoes for the sauce. I used fresh basil instead of dried & probably a bit more than the recipe called for. Also added parsley and a pinch of sugar. I did not add the additional tomato sauce as the recipe called for. Once I stuffed the rolls with the sauce, I topped with a blend of shredded Italian Cheeses. The results were great! Before this, my husband's favorite bread that I made was sundried tomato pesto bread sticks. Next time, he wants me to try to combine the 2 ideas & kneed the sundried tomato pesto into this dough & make everything else as I wrote above. I'm sure it will be great, too!

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
These were great! I made some plain, and then I made another batch with a twist. I topped the cookies with seedless raspberry preserves, and then froze them. While they were in the freezer, I melted dark chocolate in a double boiler. I then removed the cookies from the freezer and dipped them in the melted chocolate. I set the cookies on wax paper and placed in the refrigerator for the chocolate to harden. They were a hit!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
This is so good! It has become a family favorite in my home. I serve it with fajitas and black beans. My cousin said that she knew it was good rice because her husband got fourths - he usually eats one serving only of rice!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
My best friend and I used to work together . . . right across from a Starbucks. We loved getting their Pumpking Cream Cheese Muffins in the fall. When they stopped serving them, I found this recipe and made it right before my friend came over one night. We both loved them. She has since moved to another state and always asks me to make them when she comes to visit! My husband, who grudgingly tried these because he hates pumkin pie, also loves them. I did make a few variations. I make double the cream cheese mixture (and I've never had a problem when the cream cheese touches the paper cup). I leave out the pecans, and I add some pumpkin pie spice. I also substitute canola oil for the olive oil.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
These are delicious! I did make some changes to the recipe....I slightly reduced the white sugar and added some brown sugar. I, also, used the whole eggs, added vanilla and almond extracts, and added cinnamon to the dough. The dough was not firm enough to roll into balls. I was in a rush, so rather than putting it in the fridge, I used a cookie scoop and then, a small spoon dipped in flour to make the well. It worked perfectly!

Pumpkin Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
Delicious! My husband hates nuts, so I left out the walnuts. I added pumpkin pie spice in addition to the other spices. I also used egg beaters instead of eggs to cut down the fat/calories, but no one could tell the difference. My husband and mother do not normally care for pumpkin. However, they both loved this bread!

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
This was excellent. My family moved from NY to NC, and we could not get good macaroons in NC, so I decided to try this recipe. It was amazing! I made a large batch following the directions. Then, I took most of them and covered them in melted chocolate (with just a little bit of shortening in it), and then refrigerated them. Then, I made another batch with chocolate chips in it. The chocolate covered macaroons were the best, but they were all great. My mother said that she will never buy macaroons again (even in NY)!

Apricot Brisket

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
This was great! It was the first time that I made brisket, and I was making it for my family for Passover. I put some additional onion soup mix in the water that surrounded the brisket since a few others said that they would use another packet of onion soup next time. Everyone loved it . . . it went faster than everything else (there were hardly any leftovers)!

Kickin' Turkey Burger with Caramelized Onions and Spicy Sweet Mayo

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Absolutely delicious!! The burgers were moist and full of flavor, and the sauce was delicious. I did cook the jalapeños and onions before mixing them into the meat. I didn't have steak seasoning, so I used Paprika, Parsley, and Thyme. I, also, added a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Cheddar & Swiss to each burger.

Amish Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
I made this for my husband (with a couple of variations). First, I made it with ground turkey since that was what I had in the house. Then, I put 4 slices of bacon on top (because my husband loves bacon). We were a little nervous about the ground turkey, but it was still delicious! I will definately make it again - I'm sure it will be even better with ground beef.
