I can't believe I forgot to review this. Whenever I want some good Old Fashioned Homemade pancakes, this is the recipe I make. They make a great pancake! Nice and fluffy texture! Thanks for the recipe!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
These were great! The title is perfect because it tastes exactly like a donut and a muffin together. I didn't have my mini muffin pan, so I used my larger one and just filled them less. Next time I will for sure use my mini because these are like little donut holes you can just pop in your mouth. So good! Thanks for the recipe!

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
Yum Yum, these were delicious! I did squeeze the water out from the potatoes after shredding and added in some garlic powder and a little sweet paprika. Otherwise followed the recipe and they came out nice and crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. The texture was a little more between a potato pancake and a hash brown. The "batter" help up really well and was very easy to put spoonfuls in the skillet and flatten down. Served with some ketchup on top. Would also be good with a little sour cream. Thanks for this recipe! These make great goodies for breakfast!

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
Absolutely Delish! I seasoned my chops well with S&P and garlic powder as well as basted them with some of the thinned out sauce before grilling. I only made half the sauce for three thinner chops and it was the perfect amount. Added some garlic powder in the sauce and basted the chops on both sides right before pulling off the grill. When serving, I poured the remainder of the thickened sauce over top. The sauce was so flavorful and went so well with the pork. This is definitely a winner in this house! Thanks for the great recipe!

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
Great recipe with lots of flavor! For the marinade I just used balsamic vinegar to reduce some calories. It would be good with a mix of balsamic and italian dressing if you don't have the vinaigrette. The tzatziki sauce was good but it needed a bit more zip to it and I doubled the garlic. Maybe next time I will replace the rice vinegar with apple cider or more balsamic. We layered ours with all the above except the olives. Great tasting! Thanks for the recipe!

Turkey Cocktail Meatballs with Orange Cranberry Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
This was pretty good. I'm going to have to make this again because I made it for a Christmas party and had them in the crockpot all day. They didn't taste so well in the crockpot, but I'm sure these just need to be served fresh. The sauce was a bit tart when I tasted it so I added a bit of sugar. Thanks for the recipe, I will try it again and update my review when I do.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup With Bacon Gremolata

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
This soup had nice flavor. I will next time only puree half the soup and leave a few chunks in it for texture. I also loved the gremolata, but didn't care for the texture of the tiny breadcrumbs. It kind of made me feel like I was eating grit, if that makes sense. So next time I will make chunkier bread crumb cubes with a little more bacon. I think with those modifications this would be a 5 star recipe for me. As always, thanks for your great recipes!

Chili con Queso with Chicken (Similar to Carlos O'Kelly's)

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
OH MY this was so good! This IS the Ultimate Cheese Dip. I love the addition of chicken in this. It was great served on the side and dipping chips in. But I bet it would be so good poured over chips to make some nachos or as a base for taco salad. Next time I may add in a block of cream cheese just to see how much richer and creamier I can get it. Thanks for this yummy recipe!

Chef John's Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
Love this recipe! True comfort food for the morning! You really have to watch the eggs when it gets closer to time because they will go fast from being perfectly cooked to overdone. And the best part about it is the yummy egg goo that spreads out all over when you dip in your toast!

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
This was really yummy. I used blackberries in place of the blueberries since thats what I needed to use up. I really liked the flavor of this. I sprinkled powdered sugar over top of the slices. I did have to cook an extra 5-10 minutes so that it wouldn't be too gooey. This was actually still good reheated the next day as well. Thanks for this great dessert idea!

Strawberries and Cream Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
I looove bread pudding and this tasted exactly as the title says, strawberries and cream but in a bread pudding! It was so good! I made this with some strawberries that was starting to go bad. So to use them all up I added more than the recipe stated. I did notice that the extra strawberries made extra juice in the bottom, so I needed to cook a little longer. I don't like my bread puddings dry and this had enough liquid in it to make it nice and creamy but with a slightly crunchy top. I also didn't want any extra calories from the melted butter, so I just sprayed my dish with cooking spray and it was fine. I let it sit for about 15 minutes to set up and sprinkled liberally with powdered sugar when plating. This would also be good with some thinly sliced almonds sprinkled on top while baking to give an extra crunch. Thanks for this great bread pudding!

Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
Yum, these were good! I halved the recipe and lightened it up by not using the vegetable oil but just spraying my skillet lightly with cooking spray and using reduced fat cheese. I also added in a little italian seasoning and cumin and simmered the bean mixture with a lid on for about 15 minutes to let everything marry together. This is almost the same exact ingredients that I use to top my potato skins with for taco skins. Thanks for this great vegetarian quesadilla idea!

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2012
I can't believe that I've never reviewed this. I am addicted to these! I see myself always having cravings for these yummy little appy's. I do like to lighten this up a bit and it doesn't sacrifice flavor at all. I use light cream cheese and instead of mayo, I use fat free sour cream. I don't normally use the full package of italian seasoning. A third of the packet is normally zesty enough with the brand I use. I do add in a little dill as well into the dip. This dip alone is great for veggies, chips, etc! I do toast my baguette slices to give them a slight crunch. After pulling out when they are still warm, I slightly drizzle with a little EVOO and take a garlic clove and rub all over the tops. The combination and texture of the crunchy toasts, the zesty topping, and the fresh cucumbers and dill, compliment each other so well! They are delish! I can't ever stop eating them, they are so good! Thanks for this addicting recipe! I'm always making them!

Chinese Noodle Chicken

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
This was really good. I made this as a side dish and left out the chicken. I did use angel hair pasta and I made my own teriyaki sauce to use. It was a great side dish served along with a asian/chinese meal. It also would be good adding in some scrambled eggs. Thanks for this great recipe! I will for sure make again!

PHILADELPHIA Summer Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
This was an interesting potato salad using cooking creme. But I didn't think the flavor was there. The cooking creme was a little too prominent in this. I felt it needed to be spruced up quite a bit with extra veggies like onion and bell peppers, as well as some extra seasonings like some fresh dill or fresh parsley. Even though adding in some extra veggies and seasonings made it better, it still wasn't a favorite. Overall it was a decent potato salad and I enjoyed trying it. I always like new ideas using cooking creme! UPDATE: Since I had leftovers of this, I didn't want to throw it all out. So I decided to spruce it up to make it taste better. I added in more extra veggies like onion, bell pepper and celery. More seasonings like onion and garlic powder, italian seasoning, and fresh parsley. I also crumbled in some bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and about 1/2 cup of ranch dressing. Thats a lot of ingredients, but they are normally what we put in our potato salads and it did help the leftovers to be very good so that we didn't waste them. So if you don't like the original recipe, there's still hope of sprucing it up to make it a better tasting potato salad so that you won't have to waste it!

Fat Free Tartar Sauce

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
This was surprisingly good! I normally dislike certain condiments that are fat free, they need to be at least lite for me to like. This with the fat free mayo was great! I did like the taste better using lite mayo in this. But it still tasted good with the fat free as well. I did add just a touch more relish and a dash of dill seasoning. This has the zip and tang that I like out of my tartar sauces. Thanks for this great recipe!

Soft Onion Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
These were very good for making sandwich buns. I went by the recipe except used all water instead of milk and for the topping I sauteed up slivers of onion to use instead of the dried and just lightly sprayed the tops with oil spray. These make a lot, so the first day I used half the recipe to make the sandwich buns. My husband had a sandwich for lunch the next day with them and said they were still soft. Obviously two days later they began to become stale which is normal for fresh bread. My sandwich rolls were pretty flat but that may of been my fault because in the middle of rising I noticed my paper towel started to stick to the tops and I deflated them a bit. The next night I made these as rolls, 8 of them for half the recipe. They were also good but I think I liked them a little better as sandwich buns. They did have a lot of onion flavor in them. Thanks for this great recipe!

Simple Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
These were great sloppy joes! I think they are the best yet that Ive had. I am usually opening a can of my favorite mix and then sprucing it up with added ingredients. I chose to pick this recipe since it had the tomato paste/sauce combo other than all ketchup like others. I really liked the addition of the soy sauce! It really gave it a unique richness in flavor, and it almost in a way gave these sloppy joes an asian twist. I went by the recipe except sauteed in some celery as well as only used 1 lb of beef to the sauce mixture. We like em saucy! And also simmered them just a touch longer. All in all this was a great sloppy joe mix that gave me the zip and richness that I like in my joes. Thanks for this great recipe! I will definitely be using again.

No Mayo Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
I was so intrigued by this recipe using avacado to lighten up a not so healthy addiction, deviled eggs! I really liked the concept of this recipe, but I think this recipe is more of a base and needs some bumped up flavors added, hence the 3 stars. But as a base recipe, it can easily have added ingredients to fit your tastes to make it a 4 or 5 star. I added dashes of hot sauce, dijon mustard, sugar, onion and garlic powders, cayenne, and some sweet paprika. It's also great along with garnishing with green onion on top, to add some bacon and cheddar cheese! Thanks for this great idea! I will make again when wanting a lightened up version of deviled eggs.

Grilled Lemon Parmesan Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
This recipe is similar to how I always make my roasted asparagus. I always wait to add the parmesan cheese at the end when they are done along with some more lemon juice drizzled over! Also while roasting or grilling, add in some chopped garlic, yumm.
