Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
This recipe was very easy and tasty. It's a really hearty sauce and next time I'll add sauteed mushrooms. I'll certainly make it again!!

English Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
This recipe was a good one. They looked pretty and the dough was great to work with. They didn't taste like store-bought english muffins, more like a dinner roll. I baked them at 350 for 8 minutes per side as other reviewers suggested, which produced a more even color. I'll be making these again!

Coconut Cream Pie III

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
I thought this recipe was very good! I omitted the nutmeg and topped it with a light and fluffy meringue before topping it with toasted coconut. Delish! I will definitely make it again.

Simple Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
This was a very good recipe. For more flavor, I added chopped onion while browning the meat. It was too thick as a soup, so I added more water and adjusted the seasonings. I didn't have chili beans so threw in a can of yellow hominy, and added chopped jalapeno and cilantro at the end. My family loved it!

Mexican Wedding Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
These cookies were very easy to make. I didn't chill the dough as suggested because I used a small cookie scoop to shape them. Since I used chopped almonds, I used 2 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp. almond extract, and 1 tsp. water. To make coating easier, I put the powdered sugar and cookies in a large ziplock bag and shook it to coat. These will be a hit in my holiday cookie platter!

Pan De Sal I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
The texture of these rolls was great; a thin crispy crust with a tender and airy interior. I made only half of the recipe and didn't top them with breadcrumbs, but with an egg wash. I will add more sugar and salt for more flavor next time, like other reviewers suggested.

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
These are delicious! The filling was a little dry and crumbly as other reviewers mentioned, so I added half a cup more peanut butter and 4 tbl. of milk instead of one. These are a memorable treat to everyone I've given them to!

Sweet Smoked Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
The only trouble I had with these ribs was maintaining the smoker's temperature because it was cold and windy. Other than that, the meat was very tender and sauce was lip-smacking! I will definitely try these again on a warmer day.

Three Hundred Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I can't say enougfh about this newly-discovered chocolate chip cookie recipe! The edges of the cookie turned out with just the right amount of crunch while the center was soft and baked to perfection! I changed the recipe amount to 12 servings and it yielded 3 dozen cookies which is just the right amount for our family! These cookies were awesome!!

Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I made these for the first time and the first couple of balls were slow until I got the hang of dipping them in melted chocolate. I chilled them first as some reviewers suggested, then used a wooden toothpick instead of a fork to dip them. I submerged the ball almost all the way to the toothpick (revealing some of the dough), then used a second toothpick to remove the ball. Then I smoothed over the little "dent" on the top of the ball with a small touch of chocolate. Perfecto! The results were wonderful! I can't wait to bring them to work tomorrow! Thank you for a great-looking confection!

Best Ever Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
This recipe was the best cheesecake I've ever made! I dressed it up by adding shaved chocolate and sliced strawberries along the outer edge. I'm throwing my old cheesecake recipe out!!

Balsamic Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
This recipe was very quick and easy. I sauted chopped onions and browned the seasoned chicken. I also added pineapple apricot preserves to the balsamic vinegar, then reduced the sauce. I omitted the sweet potatoes. It was very yummy!

Olive Oil Cranberry Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
This was a very tasty cake. Like other reviewers suggested, I cut the oil in half and it turned out great. It came out a little dark, so I'd start checking it at 50 minutes instead of an hour. Thia was the perfect holiday cake!

Salmon Patties I

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
These were pretty tasty. Before frying, I coated them with Panko bread crumbs which gave them a crispy coating. I'll be making these again!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
This soup was very good. It was the first one I've ever made. I used 4 Tbl. flour and used my immersion blender as "audryrub" mentioned and added 2% milk (that's what I had) instead of half and half. I topped it with grated cheese, bacon and sliced green onions. It was delicious!

Ground Beef Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
This was a great, easy recipe. It was a little bland, so I added a couple dashes of Tabasco Chipotle Hot Sauce and it was absolutely wonderful! This one's a keeper.

Turkey in a Smoker

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
We usually fry our turkey, because we were expecting health-conscious guests, I decided to smoke it. We used our propane grill and used the indirect heat method with hickory chunks. The night before, I brined the 14 lb. turkey. It was on the grill at 11:00 a.m. and reached 160 degrees by 2:15 p.m. It turned out so moist, there wasn't much left! It seems intimidating, but you gotta try it! You might want to smoke a turkey breast first.

Breaded Dijon Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
I was disappointed. Most of the reviewers loved this recipe, but I wasn't pleased. I used panko crumbs because that's what I had. The crust was crispy right after frying, then turned mushy. Next time, I'll try the cracker crumbs and see what happens.
