No Bake Cereal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
Wow! These are very good and I love how quick they are. I did use cheerios instead of rice krispies. I also brought the corn syrup to a boil before adding in the sugar to prevent the hardness that others talked about. I made some with melted chocolate chips on top and some with raisins on top. Both varieties were good as well as just plain (I think I like them plain the best). Thanks for such a great & easy recipe! I will make these again and again.

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!!

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.

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!!

Spiced Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
This was awesome!!! Easily the best roast I've ever had. Even for leftovers, it was so moist I ate it plain on a hotdog bun and it tasted great - no sauce or anything! I used a bone-in roast and spiced mango chutney from Walmart.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Easiest Pot Roast Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
This was definitely easy. I made the following modifications according to what I had on hand: 2 lbs roast, 3 carrots, 1 celery stick & 4 potatoes. I let mine cook for 4 hours, but it was quite dry. This was my first roast, so I was leery of calling it done early; but I think it was done after 3 1/2 hours.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
Wow! So moist and delicious! My husband and I loved it. I did omit the garlic powder. Instead I used 2 big cloves fresh garlic (pressed). I also did not have any seasoned bread crumbs, so I used plain bread crumbs with some Pampered Chef Italian Seasoning.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
These were amazing!! My secret ingredients were organic brown sugar and whole wheat flour. I used 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour. Oh WOW they were soooo good. Everyone who ate them thought the same. They were super moist for every day they lasted in the kitchen (about 4).

Banana Chocolate Chip Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
This was awesome!!! Everybody loved it- kids and adults alike. No need for whip cream or chocolate syrup either - perfect the way it was. I did use 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour and the rest white. I also used milk chocolate chips. And I did it all in the same bowl! Loved how quick it was to make AND bake!! I used my stoneware bar pan from Pampered chef and accidentally cooked it about 5 min too long, too, and it was still delicious!!

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!

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.
