Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Way too salty! Sorry for the poor review, but I did not like them at all. I also agree with other reviewers about too much egg.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
These are pretty delicious! I had some butterscotch pudding and white chocolate chips on hand and thought they would go well together....and they did! I don't know if my oven is off, but I couldn't get a nice looking cookie very easily. They ended up pretty flat. They were starting to brown too much on the bottom, but were not done in the middle. Next time I will take down the oven temp some more and plan for a longer cooking time.

Coconut Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
This was pretty good. My 5 yr old and I whipped it up pretty quick! He wanted to make a 'surprise' dessert for his sister's birthday and came up with a coconut pie, though we've never had one nor talked about one- how special, though! My only complaint was that it was a little too sweet.

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
These were awesome! My 5 yr old and 3 yr old gobbled them up with honey on top. I liked the flavor better than whole wheat waffles. The oatmeal adds a nice flavor and texture. I did use 1/2 molasses, 1/2 honey b/c molasses smells awful to me. And I used milk + vinegar to make buttermilk. YUM! And I love that they have 10 g protein!!!

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
I thought this was really good! We used whole wheat noodles and cooked a whole chicken ahead of time to save time. This is how we cook most all our meals - this number of pans and such. I'm sad to see all the reviews that thought this was too much work. I think it's well worth it!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
I thought this was pretty good, but nothing too amazing. I cut the recipe in half and it fed 2 adults and 3 small children and had leftovers. I left out the Parmesan since we didn't have any.

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
If I could add more stars I would!!!!!!!! SO delicious. I omitted the milk powder and I threw some fresh blueberries on the pancakes once they were cooking before I flipped them. My 4 yr old and 2 yr old and I all ate them without syrup!!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I've made hummus before, but this was my first time making it with tahini. I've eaten a homemade version with tahini before, and it was great. I did not care for this at all. Way too much tahini. I thought it tasted like peanut butter. I could not tasted any other flavors. It was really hard to blend, too, and took a long time.

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
This was great, just what I was looking for - a different way to make tuna salad. I only had 1/4 cup mayo on hand, so I substituted 1/4 cup plain yogurt. It was so good this way (and much healthier) I don't know that I'd ever want to try it with a 1/2 cup mayo!! I also used spicy brown mustard, I was out of dijon. I did add one hard boiled egg and used a little more pickle relish. I didn't have any croisssants, so I toasted my bread and added sliced tomato, too. SO YUMMY and satisfying!! Good on crackers, too!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
This chicken was the BEST I've ever made/eaten at home. The dark meat was awesome. My 2 & 4 yr old finished their portions and asked for seconds!! The white was a little over cooked at 1 hr 15 min, as the recipe said. But, I think our oven cooks a little hot. The only change I made was I only used 1 stick plus 3 T butter, instead of 1/2 cup margarine.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
This crust was the best!!! I am so excited it turned out so well for my double crust potpie. I used a fork this time instead of a pastry blender and it worked a lot better for me. It was SO flaky and perfect - the best I've ever made! YUM! I used ice water and added in a few tablespoons at a time.

Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
This was SO good. I did make homemade broth with 5 chicken legs, 1 carrot, 2/3 onion, and 1 celery stalk chopped in large pieces for an hour (then discarding the veggies, saving the broth, using the chicken for the soup). The marjoram and thyme are so good and flavorful!!! I did double the recipe, too. But, I didn't measure anything except for the spices. Thank you, this recipe's a keeper!!

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
These were great!!! I only had 1/2 pound pecans (2 cups) and halved the recipe, but I left the egg white and water the same. So, with the egg white being doubled, I liked it, but I think I would like it without, just as written and using a whole pound per 1 egg white. It wasn't overly sweet or anything, but I think less sweetness and a little more salt would be just as good.

Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
This was my first try at making homemade scalloped potatoes and they were better than the box, for sure, but I think more flavor could be added, like maybe adding cheese or thyme and maybe a little more salt. My potatoes were sliced nice and thin and were definitely done in an house.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
People loved these! I think it took me well over an hour, though. It took at least an hour to put them together and about 5 min. prep time for the carrots. I found I had to cut down the 'noses', too, to get them to fit in easily and not smoosh in the faces. I thought they tasted just fine - no need to add any seasoning. I found it quite difficult to stuff the cheese into the olive as well, without getting it all over the olive. I then tried a piping bag (ziplock) and I liked it, but the cream cheese got warm and didn't look very nice so I had to chill the bag and try it again. It just took a while for me to get it figured out the best way to get the cheese in there - a small kids spoon did not work well.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
These were great!! To prevent crumbling, I did as another reviewer said about mixing in the oats a little at a time, and it worked. I only used 4 cups oats. I also used 1/2 whole wheat flour, 1/2 white flour, only about a 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips and a little under 1/3 cup brown sugar because I didn't want them to be too sweet. I also used raw honey - and I highly recommend that for GREAT honey flavor! Oh, and I accidentally forgot the vanilla. I took a pan to work and they were gone in less than 2 hours. They were very good and not crumbly at all. Oh, and I mixed by hand, too, to prevent crumbling.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
I LOVE this soup! It's so hearty and healthy. I have made it many times, but I never add the spinach or the vinegar.
