Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
What - are you kidding me? How long has there been a way to make brownies that didn't involve opening a box?! These brownies smell, and taste, yum-arific!! I followed the recipe exactly (except I used 1c regular flour and substituted the remaining 1/2 c of flour with whole wheat flour - my pitiful attempt to make these more nutritious). It did take a bit longer to cook than the 40 minutes stated in the recipe but that was probably due to my elderly oven. These are definitely worth making on a regular basis.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
More than anything I can say about this is overshadowed by my anti-all-dips-husband. I made it for an outing over a friend's house and when he heard we were bringing dip - he was HORRIFIED (he thinks of bringing dip as equivalent to bringing a bag of Pork Rinds to a dinner party). It took hearing a few of the guests complimenting it before he would try it but when he finally did, he was very surprised - and impressed. It really is good. I made it just as written (except for baking in the oven at 350 for 30 min instead of the slow cooker), although, I did half the hot sauce initially. It didn't seem to have enough kick (and we're not spicy food people) so I threw in some more (probably still didn't equal the 3/4 c. called for). Very very good!!!!

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Didn't have cornbread on hand so I made the Basic Corn Muffin recipe from this site. Cubed hot dogs up but other than that, made recipe just as written. My kids LOVED them. It was the perfect quickie-gotta-rush-off-to-soccer dinner. Thanks!!

Chicken with Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
This was pretty good. I didn't have the dijon mustard so, considering it was still good, I can only imagine it would be even better with it.

Andouille and Chicken Creole Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I can't knock it for this but WOW, was this spicy! And I cut down on the Cajun seasoning. If you could get beyond the nuclear fallout in your mouth, this was good. Not sure I'll make it again but to make it family friendly, REALLY cut down on the heat!

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
I would've never, in a million years, thought that was all there was to making REALLY GOOD granola!!!! I made it with the kids and I actually had to reprimand them to stop eating it or it would've been gone before my husband got home from work (and it was for him!) Made it just as written but with 1 c. raisins and 1 c. craisins. Can't wait to try it on ice cream or yogurt and as cereal. Most helpful advice from previous reviewer is to not panic when it comes out of the oven looking less than crunchy. As it cools, it does crunchify. Ahhhhh, granola with an ingredient list that entirely pronounceable.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
What a yummy recipe! Made it based on what I had onhand - substituting red wine vinegar for apple cider vinegar, dried basil for fresh, and V8 for tomato sauce. Biggest change was to cook it on the stove instead of grilling. Even with all the changes, it was still really good (served it over egg noodles to make it go a bit further). Even my cranky-pants husband (bad day at work) admitted that it was really good.

Puppy Chow

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I, along with my 6, 8, and 10 year old assistants, just made this. It is super easy and very tasty (albeit pretty darn sweet). Everyone - even the neighbor kids, liked it a lot!!!! Good summer vacation activity.

Gramma's Old Fashioned Chili Mac

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
I'm not sure what I was thinking going for such a "heavy" dish on a hot, humid early-summer day. Add to that, I didn't even have one of the main ingredients, like I thought I did (tomato soup). The story has a happy ending though because, even though it was a bit heavy for the weather, it was really tasty! I did make some changes, based on an earlier review. I wanted it to be a 1-pot meal so I browned the beef and onions, added garlic salt, chili powder, the tomatoes, uncooked pasta, and extra water for the pasta to cook. The only big substitution that I made was for the ingredient that I didn't have on hand - instead of the condensed tomato soup, I used V8. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but since it was all I had on hand, I gave it a try. It was really good. And I snuck in a few extra vitamins with the juice vs. the soup. Oh, and don't tell my kids (or my husband, for that matter) - I also snuck in 1/4c flax meal. Shhhhhhhhh. Substitutions and additions included, everyone raved about it!

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I guess I'm destined to be a junkfood-junkie. I made these with such hope that a cookie could be "healthy". Considering all of the positive reviews, I must've done something wrong. The only redeeming quality of these was the horrified faces that my 9, 7, and 5 year olds made after trying them (they made very funny faces.

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I read the previous reviews before making this but was in a rush and forgot to use less cayenne pepper. WOW!!!! (And not in a good way!). It was too hot to even eat! My 9, 7, and 5 year olds wouldn't have any more than the required first bite - and, for once, I didn't question it! Way too much heat as written!!!!! (I even tried to dilute it with more chicken broth. Irrepairably spicy!!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Have to agree with the masses - these are definitely worthy of 5 stars! And no, they are not overwhelmingly peanut buttery. The only change that I made was I used mini peanut butter cup bits (tiny peanut butter cups about the size of a chocolate chip), mixing them right into the dough. Also, I just used baking sheets, not a mini muffin pan. I did refrigerate these for about an hour which helped the cookies not flatten and the mini p/cups keep their shape. Really good cookies but be sure to have milk on hand.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I've made this a couple of times. The first time, I made it exactly as written (using spinach instead of escarole) and it was delicious. Most recently, I subbed beef broth for the chicken broth and again, used spinach. I also made the meatballs smaller and incorporated a lot of previous reviewers' advice to make it ahead of time so the flavors can set. Both times, it was super good but I do think that making it ahead of time does add to it. Perfect for a cold, windy winter night.

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
I seem to be in the minority on this but I was not impressed with these. I went back and forth on whether to make these, or the recipe listed on the Heath Toffee Bits bag. I opted for this recipe but was disappointed. The cookies are way too buttery - and not in a good "Meet the Buttertons" kind of way. It's just too much. Next time, I'll go for the recipe on the bag.

Crawfish Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
On the one hand, I'm not sure I'm qualified to rate this recipe but on the other hand, I can rate it based on it's ability to allow for substitutions. Based on what I had on hand, I subbed shrimp and scallops for the crawfish. I used Cream of Celery in place of the Cream of Potato and added 2 diced potatoes and Old Bay. It was really good!! I love a good recipe. I REALLY LOVE a recipe that is still good even when you make due with ingredients on hand. Yummy and perfect for the first snowy night all year (finally!).

Chicken Casserole Del Sol

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
I have to be honest - I fully expected to dislike this dish and made it because I couldn't think of what else to make. It was actually good!! My 9 year old had 4 helpings. Even my casserole-hating husband was full of compliments. Made it just as written except with 1 can cream of chix and 1 can cream of mush soup. Will definately make again but may try experimenting with a more low cal/fat version.

Restaurant Style Chicken Nachos

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
BLECH!!! You know something is a flop (whether my fault or the recipes) when nachos don't go at a Superbowl party. These were an unpleasant collection of tastes and yes, the chip at the bottom were total mush! Again, BLECH!

Beer Dip I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Not bad - not fantastic, but not bad. Made it with Coors Light but I'm betting this would be much better with a heavier beer. Also, as written, it is pretty salty and WAY too thick to "dip" anything into it. Heated up,thinned out a little, and made with a heavier beer would really improve this.

Kansas City Steak Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Wow, was this good! My husband assumed that is was stew when he saw a thick, dark meaty/veggie something in a pot. He is the king of hating all things "stew". Once I convinced him that it was soup and not stew, he tried it and loved it. The kids went back 2 and 3 times for more! I made it almost just as written but didn't have any frozen veggies so I used more of the carrots and celery and did throw in a few potatoes.

Frogmore Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I've made a lot of recipes from this site and this the THE BEST ONE YET!!!! I'm from Maryland so I did add quite a bit more Old Bay and used kielbasa w/ red pepper (as suggested by Shirley, the submitter) instead of the sausage (it was in the freezer). My kids **LOVED** the free-for-all concept of eating (I just dumped the food in the middle of the newspaper covered table). For a super special treat, I didn't even put silverware or plates on the table. After years of trying to instill manners in them, they were in their natural element tonight. My 9, 7, and 5 year old cave-children. Will DEFINITELY make this again.
