The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
These are wonderful cookies! My kids and husband love them as well. Don't make them if you're on a diet though ;-) I used all natural peanut butter, the kind you have to stir, which has more of a peanut taste than the other peanut butters made w/ sugar and hydrogenated oils. I also used a little scoop to put them on my pan, then criss-crossed them w/ a fork. Bake time was exactly 8 minutes. It made 100 cookies this way! Wow!

Golden Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
Very good cookies and easy to make. I've made the Toll House recipe for 20 years, but today I only had 1 stick of butter and I had promised my 6yr old that we could make cookies today! So I came on here looking for a recipe that called for only one stick of butter. It's honestly just as good as the toll house recipe. I'm definitely keeping this one because it makes far fewer cookies, which means less baking tme and fewer calories in my belly ;) I didn't mix the ingredients exactly how it says in the recipe. I did it the same as I do when making Toll House. Cream the butter and sugar first, then mix in the egg and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl, add to wet mixture while the mixer is running. Then add chips. I use a scoop for all my cookies, which makes about 2-2.5" cookies. This recipe made 36 of them, cooked for 6.5 minutes. These are delicious according to the 2 kids and 2 adults in my household!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Melt in your mouth cookies! The best I've had. They're very soft, actually cake like. I use only all natural peanut butter so I don't know if that makes a difference. It's a very runny peanut butter, you can actually pour it. But they turned out great! The dough was so soft and fluffy, very airy and not greasy at all (again, maybe that's the all natural peanut butter?). I love to eat lots of cookie dough whenever I make any cookies and this dough passes that test big time. I couldn't make the fork criss cross marks, so I just didn't do those. In my oven it took just 7 1/2 minutes of baking, but I got 45 cookies out of it so maybe mine were a little smaller? Basically you just have to watch for light browning of the very edges and that's when they're done (as with any peanut butter cookie). These were awesome still warm and even better the next day! You just can't go wrong! Except my husband prefers a "crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle" cookie, so he's not eating them. Oh well, more for the kids and me!!!!

Oven Brown Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Wow, I've never been able to make brown rice edible and this is sooooo delicious! Melt in your mouth, thinking about it the next day delicious. I made it exactly as written and it was perfect! I think it took about 10 min. longer to cook in my oven, but it could just be a difference in oven temps. I used Organic California Brown Basmati rice by Lundberg.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Yum! I refuse to buy boxed mixes, they're so unhealthy with added hydrogenated oil and other additives. So I've been making them from scratch for quite a while but was in need of a new, fluffier recipe. I personally always add vanilla and Pumpkin Pie spice to all my pancake and waffle batters, my family just loves it. I never add any suger either...with the vanilla and Pumpkin Pie spice AND real maple syrup on top (and even sometimes fruits added inside or on top of the pancakes), you just do NOT need any added sugar! I did a taste test with my family (husband and picky kids) and they never knew that I left out the sugar. I didn't tell my husband for months...and we have pancakes or waffles for dinner once a week! Anyway, enjoy your pancakes any which way you like them but remember, from scratch is WAY healthier for you ;o) I'm glad so many have said they already tried this recipe with 1/2 whole wheat flour because I want to try that too. Even healthier.

Delightful Apple Spice Muffins

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This is absolutely the BEST rolled sugar cookies I've ever had. They're easy, but better than that they taste so incredibly good and have such a light and fluffy texture. I don't like hard, crunchy, crumbly sugar cookies. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This is a fabulous cake, especially for us peanut butter lovers. I made this for my son's birthday when he turned 10 and it was a HUGE hit with ALL the guests, even the adults. I did make a small change though....I used a chocolate angel cake mix instead because my son does not like a yellow cake mix at all. And you just can't go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter! Then with another cake I decided to spread straight, plain peanut butter between the two cake layers instead of icing and that blew everyone's socks off. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!!

Easy Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
So tasty that my family didn't know they had whole wheat flour in them! And they'll NEVER know ;o) You see, once they know these things then suddenly they don't like the food any longer. So it has to remain my secret. This recipe made it into my very own, personal, tried and true recipe binder in my kitchen. You know, those recipes that you turn to when you MUST please people?!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I made these exactly as the recipe is written and my 2 kids (ages 9 and 12) and my husband and I all loved them! This was my first attempt at making biscuits from scratch and I'm so glad I used this recipe. We haven't had biscuits in so long because of how unhealthy the store bought ones are. Thanks for a great recipe!

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Well, although this seems like a good idea, it just wasn't what my family likes. It really is too dense. It was much like having a bagel pizza on a whole wheat bagel, the dense kind. And there is no flavor. I know that many reviewers mentioned that they added things to the crust and I think that's a good idea. Anyway, it was fun to make and I'm glad I gave it a try :) However, my 12yr old son is eating a bowl of cereal right now because he couldn't manage to eat an entire slice ;o)

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

We all loved this (including my husband and 12 yr old son and 9yr old daughter). This recipe is now printed and in my permanent go-to recipe binder. I used it with a flank steak, yum!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Perfect!! I used this to top a chicken pot pie. It was buttery and flaky, and super easy to make. My only problem is that it was too small for the top of my pie dish. I had to roll it thinner than I would have liked and had to pull it and push it down onto the rim of my pie dish, hoping it wouldn't shrink. It didn't, so that was good. But it was great! Next time I'll double it :)

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
This was ok, but my husband didn't like it. He was requesting Sloppy Joes and I didn't want it out of a can that's full of bad stuff. I'm not a Sloppy Joe fan myself, I was really making these for him. He said it just didn't taste like it should and it was too thick...not "Sloppy" enough. He didn't like the chunks of veggies in it either. But I'm glad I tried :) Thanks!

Whit's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
This was much too heavy on cheese in general, but especially the cream cheese. The cream cheese overwhelmed the flavor of the whole dish. I added some of our favorite salsa to the filling, which was much needed for flavor.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
This was much too cheesy for my liking, but not the fault of the poster :) I was just hoping for a "hint" of parmesan, but this is so cheesy that when you eat it you have strings of cheese going from your plate to your mouth. It was a little bland as well, needs something else.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
I don't have one negative thing to say about this recipe! My 2 kids, hubby and I all loved it. I need to double it for my family of 4, which allows for a few leftovers, but one recipe isn't enough for 4 people. The flour did not mix thoroughly, so the batter is lumpy, but that doesn't affect the outcome :) Thanks for the recipe!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Wow, thanks for this recipe! My husband, 12yr old and 9yr old all gave it a thumbs up (and these are picky kids!). I did do a few modifications after reading reviews, but I'm betting it would be just as good as is :) I had 1 1/4 lbs ground beef, so I lowered the brown sugar just a tad. I did add a tsp of Worcestershire sauce to the brown sugar and ketchup mixture. I don't do meatloaf in a loaf pan, it's not my thing, so I formed a loaf in a casserole dish, mixed the brown sugar, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce together and used it as a glaze on top. I added onion powder and garlic powder to the meat (I don't like onions in meatloaf). I used 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs instead of saltines (just easier). 1/2 c. milk and 1 egg instead of how it's written.
