Chicken and Snow Peas

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2014
After reading the other recipes, I cut down to 1 teaspoon of ginger which I thought was plenty. I also added carrots which added nice color to the dish. I also used the suggestion of sesame seed oil to stir fry the chicken. I liked that flavor, it added a little more depth. Next time I would maybe even double the amount of garlic. Cooking this dish made the house smell great. Thanks for the basic recipe and others with their suggestions!

Eggnog Thumbprints

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2013
This is a really different flavored cookie, but the kind that it was hard to eat just one. The nutmeg sprinkled on the top really helped it all go together. Easy to make. I didn't have anything fancy to pipe out the frosting, so I took a baggie, sandwich sized, and clipped a corner and used that to help make the frosting look prettier. It worked pretty well. Looking forward to Christmas next year so I can make them again!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
Wow! This was a great recipe for people who don't have or want to use a mixer. Easy to put together and delicious flavors upon completion. This will go into my "keeper" file.

Maui Onion Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
This salad dressing is addictive. After I make it I am guaranteed to eat a salad once a day until it all disappears. I didn't have a sweet onion on hand, so I used a regular yellow onion and the onion flavor was quite strong. If you like onion flavor it is delicious. I will remake with a sweet or mild onion too and I might have to give it a 6 star rating!

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This was amazing! I did as recommended with the doubling of the coffee and liquer. I used Tia Maria in place of the rum since I didn't have any and it was amazing! Yes, waiting a day makes for a fantastic marriage of flavors. Thanks for an outstanding recipe!

Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
This recipe is a keeper. I didn't like the idea of having to use my mixer to make a muffin, but it turned out to be worth it. I forgot to cut the butter in for the streusel top because I was getting hungry and trying to hurry and they still tasted amazing. Thanks for the great recipe.

Coffee Bonbons

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Delicious cookie. I did not have instant coffee but had instant espresso -the Medaglia D'Oro brand. I figured that espresso is stronger than coffee so I used half as much to try to make it as similar to the original recipe. I didn't have to crush down the granules, because the instant espresso is in pretty fine particles or powdery. My icing wasn't as dark as those in the pictures, still tasted great though. I also had to play with the consistency as it does thicken when cooling. So when you have it at the right spreading consistency don't walk away and work on laundry, vacuuming or computer work because you will miss that window of excellence!!

Slow Cooker Tamale Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I thought with the corn bread topping it was actually too sweet to be a tamale flavor. I put some crunhed up tortilla chips over the top and thought it made it less sweet and I enjoyed the extra crunch! A dollop of sour cream on the finished product helped add to the combination of flavors. I like the ease of putting everything in one pot and leaving it in the slow cook and hours later you have a complete meal.

Cinnamon Streusel Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Excellent recipe as is. I think next time I would make them, I would not fill my muffin cups as full. I would make 14 muffins instead of 12 so that way all that yummy streusel topping doesn't fall off while expanding during baking! I used a cookie scoop to try to get the right amount of batter in the muffin before putting in the cinnamon, brown sugar filling and that seemed to be the right amount. I also had some fresh cranberries, I wanted to use up from a farmers market, so I cut them in half and shoved them into a few of the muffins for an experiment and that added some extra flavor if you like cranberries!

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
I really liked this recipe. I felt like it could use more than 1 cup of cheese since my family lives close to Wisconsin and loves their cheese, I had to add more cheese!! It is very easy as long as you already have some cooked chicken. I like to use the chicken leftover from making homemade chicken soup. I might try next time to add a red enchilada sauce on the tortillas under the cheese to give it a totally different flavor with the same basic recipe.

White Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Very very chocolatey. They taste like an oreo cookie but a soft version. Delightful with or without chips in them. I put in peppermint chips in half the dough to experiment and it was a pleasant suprise.

Blueberry Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
Delicious recipe. I used a convection oven, so mine was ready at the 40 minute mark. Didn't use the full 2 cups of blueberries and it was fine with about 1 and 1/3 cups. Did use other readers tip of extra 1/4 cup milk. Worked great.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
I followed the recipe with the exception of substituting all butter vs. butter and shortening because I had no shortening in the house. I thought they tasted great but fell apart on the cookie rack, so I added a little more flour maybe up to 1/2 cup to what batter was left and they held together better and still tasted great. If you are making these with all butter, I would add a bit more flour.

French Toast Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
After reading the other reviews, I cut up the bread into cubes less than an 3/4 inch in size. I was running low on milk and read how soggy it seemed to turn out for some, so I did use less milk (1 cup less) and there was no problem with it cooking through or being soggy. My oven has both convention and non-convection baking. I used convection and the edges turned out a little crunchy. So if you want it softer I recommend the non-convection baking option. If you like it a little crispy or crunchy on top then select convection bake. Flavor on recipe was excellent enough to serve without any kind of syrup or other topping. I had the maple syrup out and ready to go but no one used it.

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
The flavor on this was amazing. I doubled the marinade and saved half to slowly boil for 5 minutes just prior to serving while the meat was sitting for the 5 minutes after taking it off the grill. I only had time to marinade for 30 minutes and I cooked in on the Weber Gas grill, uncovered at 400 degrees for 20 minutes on a piece of tin foil with the edges rolled up to catch any of the extra marinade. Served with rice and it was done within an hour and an an amazingly, quick, flavorful dinner. Thanks for the recipe!!

Prize Winning Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Awesome recipe. They looked like restaurant ribs when taken off the grill. The 300 degrees method for an hour really does work perfectly. I had a hard time removing the membrane with a butter knife and I also tried with a sharp knife. It never came off in one piece for me at all. I had smaller pieces of membrane even after using the paper towel method. Maybe that was because my ribs were frozen prior to thawing out from Market Day? It was so hard to not peek during the cooking process, but so worth the wait and well worth being patient. YUM!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
This was an amazing recipe as the muffins were moist and tasty. I wanted them to taste more like pumpkin than apple based on the other reviews, so I added only one cup of chopped apples and I thought the pumpkin taste was prominant. Delicious recipe.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
Excellent, easy recipe. Taste and look professional. Hard to stop eating. I sliced them right out of the oven, with a very sharp knife and they had nice clean cuts. Thanks for posting a great recipe!

This recipe for taco seasoning was better than the package version and it had no preservatives or food coloring added. Thanks for the recipe. It is a keeper!

Lime Gelatin Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
I have now made this recipe two times. When the recipe calls 2 cups heavy whippping cream, I confused about if it meant 2 cups whipping prior to being whipped up or after being whipped. The first time I made it with 2 half pint cartons of whipping cream. The second time I made it with just one carton. I thought it served more people with the 2 cartons of whipping cream, but thought it tasted sweeter when I only added 1 carton. I also chose to omit nuts due to offending many people. When I made it for the first time, I had an immediate request for the next gathering to make this exact jello, so it is tasty and popular.
