Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
These cookies were so good, I made them two days in a row. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and they were all eaten in less than 24 hours. Last night when I made these, I made a few changes to the recipe. We had gone to a party and were served cookies with caramel centers, and they were really good, but they were prepackaged (like the slice and bake ones I guess). I took that idea and applied it to this cookie, instead of PB in the cookie batter I used Nutella (I also added some instant coffee granules to increase the chocolate flavor of the cookie) and I wrapped the batter around Rollo's. I ate one warm and it wasn't the greatest, but now that they are cool, they are outstanding!

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
These pancakes are amazing! I have had to make do with what I have on hand all this week (I hope the economy gets better FAST). Tonight was a tough night figuring out what to make for dinner with what I had on hand and that wasn't much. I had bananas, a little flour, and dry milk. I actually tripled the recipe, and because I didn't have enough flour or the means with which to get any, what I did was use old fashioned oats and mixed them in the blender so it resembled flour consistency, and they were amazing! I had my 10 year old help with the liquid ingredients and he loved the way they turned out, that was no surprise, he loves everything. The reason I have given this 5 stars is that my picky boyfriend loved them too, and trust me, if he knew they were a little healthier (because of the oats) he NEVER would have even tried them! I give this an A++ The only other change besides using the powdered milk and the oats was I subbed 1/2 of the white sugar for brown because I like brown sugar with bananas. Thank you Addean1! You rock!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
I am going to start with the fact that I have never been a fan of pork chops, but, times are tough and my boyfriends mom gave us a package of them and I know that I can turn to allrecipes to help me with anything I want to make. I did follow some of the other reviewers suggestions and made a couple of changes. We are not mushroom fans, so I used cream of celery, and I didn't have any white wine so I filled the can of cream of celery soup 3/4 of the way with milk and added that to the gravy, which I started on the stovetop. I also seasoned the flour and bread crumbs with garlic powder and natures seasoning along with the chops themselves. There are 3 of us, so I only used 3 pork chops, and didn't change any other measurements. instead of browning on the stovetop and transferring to another pan, I used my cast iron skillet and put it into the oven after the chops were browned (why dirty an extra pan?) I didn't bake them as long either and if I had, the chops would have been dry. My whole family enjoyed this, including myself. I may even start buying pork chops and making them this way.

Sweet Potato Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
Wow! I made this because we are doing an Iron Chef type competition at work and the ingredient was sweet potato. I thought this was interesting. I was not expecting it to be so good! I think I just might win! I did use chicken broth instead of vegetable, and I also added some cider as another reviewer suggested and cannelloni beans. I was planning on adding pasta, but, I don''t think it needs it! This will wind up in my recipe collection as something I will make regularly. As a dessert I made the sweet potato pound cake from this site, I fear that gem won't make it out of the house.. At least I got to try this one out without anyone noticing something missing. UPDATE I got second place in my contest at work to sweet potato fries with dipping sauces, I wanted a recount! People that like sweet potato, and people that don't like soup alike asked for the recipe!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
I made this tonight and it was AWESOME! I did change the crust and used crushed pretzels and unsalted butter instead because I thought that would be to die for, it was!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I have made this twice now, the first time I added the cayenne and my 9 year old tried it and said he liked it, but, it was too spicy. Tonight he loved it. I added cayenne to my own bowl and it was perfect. I do leave the shrimp out, we don't eat it, and it is perfect without it. I added some cooked Texmati rice at the end of the cooking process. This is definitely going to be a go to recipe for me, I always have the ingredients on hand and it economical also.

Chocolate Chip Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I wish I had more stars! WOW! I wanted to take a picture of this, but, I cut into it instead! This was AMAZING! I did add some salt, because, there was none in the recipe and I thought that odd. I used 1/2 brown sugar and added more spices (clove, allspice, extra cinnamon) that is my preference. This blew me away. If you are unsure about this and have everything on hand as I did, I would definitely try it! This makes me wish I had more Honey Crisp apples so I could make another! I can't wait for my son to try this, he is going to want to go to the farm after school and get more apples! BRAVO!

Peanut Butter Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
I was going to wait to review this until I had made it in the context that was intended, however, I have gotten such rave reviews, I decided to review it now. I really enjoyed making this "cake" (more like a brownie actually, the process of melting the butter and adding the cocoa powder is a technique used when making brownies from scratch, don't forget to temper the eggs, scrambled eggs and chocolate yuck!)I made a few minor changes to the initial recipe in I used 1/2C Whole Wheat flour and 1/2C oats that I had ground in the blender. It was a fairly simple dessert to make, though, it took a lot longer to bake, I will chalk that up to the fact that we were having torrential downpours that day. Well, that was all lovely and whatnot, but I got impatient and tried to flip the pan before the cake had cooled well enough.... Not a good plan.. The cake was RUINED. I am not one to let a perfectly good, if not completely decimated cake go to waste, well, I spread the peanut butter on what was left of the cake and I went to the grocery store and got some chocolate pudding and some cool whip. I came home and made a trifle with the mess, I used chocolate pudding, chocolate cool whip and plain cool whip. I took this concoction to work (I am making the Peanut Butter Fudge Cake for my family reunion this weekend) and I was told by my colleagues that this is the best thing I have ever made, and I can bring my mistakes in anytime!!! I can't wait to try the actual recipe this weekend!!!

Libby's® Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
I am so sorry I can't have more stars! This was RIDICULOUS!!! I made small changes to it to make it healthier, I ran out of sugar so The amount of sugar was reduced slightly, I used apple sauce in place of half the oil (you know because I ran out of sugar and to reduce the fat) I also substituted 1 cup of the flour with I cup of rolled oats that I had ground in the blender. The flavor was incredible, I must admit this almost didn't make it to the party I was bringing it to! I don't care if it summer I LOVE pumpkin! :)

Soft Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
This is a phenomenal cookie! Warm and homey, soft and chewy. This is a great flavor and texture! A hit with everyone I shared them with! I made a full batch, but, didn't make them all at once. I sealed the bowl in the fridge and make some every night... I think it is 'safer' That way; otherwise we would eat the whole batch at once! I would go so far as to say that is is a great 'comfort food' dessert!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
I had thought I already reviewed this. I used a homemade French onion soup I had made instead of just the beer. I brought this to work for our holiday party, I didn't have any, but, everyone that did eat it loved it. I had trouble slicing it however. I will definitely try this again, a good use of leftover French onion soup!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
This is a fabulous recipe, I just have a few notes, I add the celery tops, 1 can cream of celery, 1 can cream of chicken, chicken broth, frozen veggies, I also roll out the biscuits and cut them in half, and the first few times I have made this recipe it was brilliant! HOWEVER, the last two times I have made it, the biscuits take forever to cook, I now know why, I am an AVID crockpot user as a single working mom that is out of necessity. I read somewhere that if you take the cover off the crockpot it adds an additional 12 minutes to the cook time. I have found myself leaving the cover off between adding the veggies and rolling out the dough, if you refrain from this I think it will make all the difference.
