Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
I cut this recipe in half. I used a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop and got 14 large cookies. I baked them on airbake pans for 16 minutes. They were a big hit. Nice and chewy like my family likes. Highly recommend for anyone that likes a chewy cookie.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2005
Excellent recipe!!! I think the type of apple you use will determine how much sugar you need. I doubled the apples and per the recommendation of the local produce manager, I used 3 empire and 5 macintosh. Since these are naturally sweeter than pie apples, I cut the sugar in half, using 1/4 cup for the doubled recipe. I also cut the cinnamon, since I only like a hint of it. Since a few reviewers talked about it being watery, I let it simmer for about 45 minutes. Once it seemed thick enough for my liking, I used the potato masher to make it smooth. Very easy and tasty recipe. You will have to adjust the sugar according to the apples and your personal preference. With the apples I used and cutting the sugar, we took a vote. Two thought the sweetness was just right and three thought it was a little sweet. However, everyone enjoyed it.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2004
This recipe was okay, but nothing great. Do not cook the chicken as long as it says unless you like overcooked dried out chicken.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
Great recipe. It disappeared in minutes at our Christmas gathering. Adults and teens loved it. I like that this recipe does not call for Mayo like so many similar recipes. I did add 1/4 cup of sour cream to help the cream cheese spread better. I have made this recipe twice now and I like to use about a third of the packet of dressing mix. Otherwise it is too overpowering for me. However, your personal likes will determine your preference. For younger children I would really cut back on the seasonings as they seem to prefer bland things. I also sprinkled cheddar cheese on top after I placed the veggies on. Make sure you take a spatula and press the cheese and veggies into the cream cheese.

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2004
These turned out great. My daughter said they were the best sugar cookies I ever made. For those who had trouble rolling the dough, I have a suggestion: Buy yourself a rolling pin cover and cloth. Fold the cloth over a large cutting board. You work flour into the cloth and cover. I tell everyone this is the best kitchen investment I ever made. Since I bought it, I have never had a problem rolling any kind of cookie dough or pie crust. Prior to that, baking anything that needed to be rolled, was a nightmare for me.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
This was a big hit at Christmas Eve dinner. Several people asked for the recipe. I added mandarin oranges, and mixed romaine lettuce with the spinach. The dressing is great!!! Thanks Jamie!!!

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2004
I had a hard time rating this muffin recipe. For a healthy choice I would give it a five. Otherwise I would give it a three. I guess I am just used to the flavor of the more cakey type muffins, which I do like the taste of better. However, for a healthy choice, this is a decent recipe. I did find the recipe a little sweet for my tastes, so I will cut the sugar if I try them again. For those on Weight Watchers, a muffin is worth 2 points, much better than the 4.5 points of my other muffins. So, from a health standpoint, I will be making them again. Just not sure if I would make them for company.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2004
This was a very easy recipe. I loved how the dough was so easy to work with and shape into loaves. I did not need the whole amount of whole wheat flour. However, I just found the recipe to be a bit sweet for me. I realize that is a personal preference. So, if you like a sweet bread, I am sure you will very happy with this recipe. For me, I am going to use less honey or skip it altogether next time. There will be a next time, since this recipe is so easy to work with.

Tangy Poppy Seed Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2004
Great mix of fruit. Dressing adds a nice flavor to the fruit. This dish was enjoyed by all who ate it. I did use fresh pineapple and less sesame seeds. Next time I would use red grapes instead of green for some more color.

Butter Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2004
This is a great recipe....we make these for every camping trip. However, I do not use so much butter. We slice the potatoes and arrange in layers in a throw-away-aluminum pan. On each layer we put small pieces of butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. If we have real onion, I will use that instead of the powder. We cover with foil and place on our grill. We bring a small propane grill when we camp. We cook for about 30-45 minutes. They are always a big hit.

Company Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2004
These were great!!! As always, I made a few changes, but nothing major. I only had cream of celery soup, so I used 2 cans of it instead of cream of potato. I cut the salt in half, and may even cut it more next time. I used 2 cups of cheese, mixing in half with the potatoes, and putting the other half on top. I did skip the dill, because I was afraid it would not be kid friendly. I think I would have liked it though. I liked that this recipe used milk instead of butter. The other similar recipes often call for a stick of butter. I like that this recipe cuts the fat significantly. I used skim milk and the recipe was well-liked at our Fourth of July gathering. Thanks for sharing

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2004
This is a very quick to make and yummy recipe. It was a big hit with teens and adults. I did follow others suggestions and used 1/3 cup water and substituted applesauce for half of the margarine. Next time I will use all applesauce to eliminate the fat. I simmered the sugar mixture for about 15 minutes instead of the recommended three. Although this is a great recipe, it would be even better if you used fresh apples and prepared them as you would for homemade apple pie. That is what I plan to do next time, and I know this great recipe will be even better.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
These are awesome. Soft and chewy,just the way my family likes them. I did use half dark brown sugar. I will make one change next time. I will use Milk Chocolate Chips instead of semi-sweet. Since the batter uses unsweetened cocoa powder, the batter does not taste as sweet as a traditional cookie. I think the milk chocolate chips would improve the overall taste. Of course, this is a personal preference. Either way, I think you will enjoy this very tasty cookie. My teen daughter said this was definitely a keeper recipe.

White Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2004
Well liked by the family. I made just minor adjustments. I used 2 cups chicken broth and felt the extra was definitely needed. I sauteed garlic with the onions and chicken rather than using garlic powder. Since my family is not fond of real spicy foods, I only used one fourth tsp cumin and just a dash of cayenne pepper. I did not have cilantro so skipped that. We found this recipe quick to make and very tasty. We will be making this often. Thanks Dierdre!!!

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2004
These are quick and easy to make. I halved the recipe but used a 9 oz. can of corn and 14 oz can of tomatoes. My teen daughter loved them as is. I felt they needed some spicing up. So you will need to be a judge of that yourself. If you like bland dishes, leave as is. If you like spices, make sure to add some. Next time I will use salsa instead of tomatoes. I also found the recipe filled way more tortillas than it says. Buy an extra package for yourself. This is a great vegetarian meal. I like having them on hand, for days I don't feel like cooking two meals. My husband is a fervent meat lover.

Cheesecake Supreme

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2004
Excellent creamy cheesecake. I followed the suggestion of baking at 200 degrees for 3 hours, 10 minutes. I then slightly propped the oven door open and let it sit in the oven for two hours. The cake was perfect. Smooth, creamy with a white top, just like you would buy at the bakery. I served it with the Betty Crocker Raspberry Sauce found at this website. I would suggest decreasing the cornstarch for the sauce. I had hoped to drizzle the sauce on like they do at restaurants. However, I had to spread it. It tasted great, but did not look as pretty as you see it served at elegant restaurants.

Stove Top Tofu Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2004
Quick and tasty dish. I added a little fresh ground pepper and a 1/2 tsp. basil. Instead of 4 cups of water I used 2 cups of vegetable broth. This recipes appealed to both me and my teenage daughter. I served it with oyster crackers.

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2004
This is a very tasty recipe. Many reviewers chose not to add the mushrooms. I must say I hesitated, but in the end I decided to add them in. They are a wonderful addition to this recipe. Don't skip them,unless you really don't like mushrooms. The only real changes I made were to use less chili powder. Since I chose to drain the kidney beans and corn, I added one cup of water. I also used petite diced tomatoes to skip the chopping step. I did cook this for about 2 hours, not the 20 minutes suggested. Next time I will skip the green and red peppers and increase some of the other veggies to replace them. ALthough I am a fan of peppers, somehow I felt I would like this recipe better without the peppers. That is what is so nice about this recipe. You can easily adjust it to your preferences. Thumbs up on this one!!!!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2004
These are excellent. I did use 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and added the tsp. of vanilla suggested by other reviewers. However, I am not sure it is needed. The bananas give plenty of flavor. I filled my muffin tins using an ice cream scoop. It helps you get nice even muffins. I got 11 muffins. Since so many people said the topping fell off when baking, I just put a little on each muffin and pressed it in with the back of a spoon. That worked well. I also baked at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Whenever I try to bake at 375 degrees, the tops get burned. Thanks for sharing this very easy to make and tasty recipe.

Quick Brownbag Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2004
I thought these were wonderful. They are so easy and fast to make. Since the rest of my family is not vegetarian, I need quick meals to prepare for me. I did use less chili powder, only because I am not fond of real spicy food. Otherwise, I followed it exactly. I did serve it with sour cream. Thanks so much Lori for a great, simple, tasty recipe.
