Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VI

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Delicious! I too soaked the raisins. I ended up using 2 1/2 cups of oatmeal but I should have used all 3 cups, due to the soaked raisins the dough was quite wet. Added a little more flour to compensate but I think the oats would have been better. Also did 1/2 baking soda and 1 1/2 baking powder so they wouldn't be flat. One last thing-due to some others saying how bland they were, I used APPLE PIE SPICE which gave it a great flavor! I used 2 tsps, I think a little more would have been even better. Otherwise, loved this cookie.

Homemade Wonderful Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2001
Great bread. I didn't have dry milk powder so I just used warm milk, which worked very well.

Banana Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2001
Great banana bread! I didn't have the buttermilk so I just used plain milk and added about 1/2 cup more mashed banana. I agree that it needs more nuts than just the 1/2 cup of walnuts. Regardless, this was outstanding, and my oldest daughter is asking when I will be making this again.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
The whole family loved this! As per other suggestions, I cut the butter in half, and increased the curry; I ended up using about 2 TBSP since we love curry flavors. The only complaint? I didn't make enough! This will definitely be made again, and I will cook more chicken!

London Broil I

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2001
We broiled our london broil instead of grilling, which worked great! I had two steaks weighing a total of about 3 1/2 pounds, so I used 1 cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup Worchestershire sauce, added 5 (LARGE!) cloves of minced garlic, and added 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder (I think I could have added more, maybe 1 full tsp.), added one more tablespoon ketchup, and marinated in an oven bag for about 8 hours. The oven bag made it easy to flip the meat, and it was an easy cleanup with no dirty bowls..just threw the oven bag away. The meat was flavorful and juicy..it didn't need any extra sauces or flavorings. I made a gravy out of the drippings...OUTSTANDING!

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2001
I've made this twice now and the family loves it. Great tasting glaze, and it made the house smell really good while it was cooking in the oven. My youngest says this is better than my normal recipe for meatloaf, so guess what? This is the meatloaf that will be served in this household from now on!

Chicken and Lentils

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
Very good! Everybody liked this dish. I soaked the lentils as some had suggested and it did cut down the cooking time. I had chicken tenderloins that I cut into bite sized pieces and that cut down the cooking even further. I took the cumin substitution suggestion, used tomato puree, and added one of those Swanson's Flavor Boosts (veggie flavor) instead of salt. This was a great combo and will be made again.

Double Layer Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2001
Really tasty! I used Jello's Devil's Food flavored instant pudding which gave it a more intense chocolate flavor. I like the idea of using a chocolate crust, though I didn't use it this time. I also used 5 mini PB cups cut in quarters and put the pieces (and the crumbs produced while cutting them) over the pie. I will definitely make this again!

Easy Four Cheese Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2001
This tasted really good. I too like the previous reviewer used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese since I had used cottage cheese in a lasagna recipe before and my husband hated it. I think spinach could be added for a really tasty spinach lasagna.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
I'm posting this review mainly so I can remember the adjustments I made, because after doing this I won't go back to the original! I followed another reviewer's idea and used a cheesy flavor Rice a Roni (two boxes), cut down the cheeses to around 1 cup each, added a small can of drained black beans and chopped green chilis, and chopped up 1/2 a green pepper and 1/2 a red pepper (leftover from another meal, just to use them up). Added chives to the top. Kept the rest of the ingredients the same. EXCELLENT.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2001
Really tasty! My husband says this is now one of his favorite things to eat. I too was a little wary of the sour cream, but this dish was wonderful. Leftovers (there was very little) tasted even better the next day.

Chicken Salad Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2001
My husband raved about this recipe, and feels that this was one of the best recipes I've tried from this site. My girls also loved it...youngest daughter starting digging just the chicken part out. I served this with pita bread instead of tortillas (what I had on hand). Great recipe.

Stromboli

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
This was a big hit with the family! Instead of store bought pizza sauce, I made a triple batch of the Easy Pizza Sauce II that is at this site. I didn't have ham, but I had everything else, and I had bulk pepperoni so I cut it in pieces instead of slices. I reserved some of the sauce for dipping/topping, and the rest went into the mixture, and I used two ready made pizza dough packages I got on sale. Plenty of filling to go around, and now all I have to do is make another batch of dipping sauce for the second stromboli that only needs to be reheated on another day! Time saving dinner!

Stacey's Hamburger Seasoning

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
This seasoning is great! I didn't just use it in my hamburger (which was why I made a batch of it in the first place) but I added it to all sorts of things I was cooking: meatloaf, stew, even in vegetables such as corn! My husband raved about the corn! I DID just add a pinch of cayenne instead of 1/4 tsp since my daughter does not like anything spicy, and she liked this as well!

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
My youngest daughter loves rainbow colors so I made this for her birthday yesterday. I did this in a rectangle 9x13 pan so I didn't think I would get the nice even layer effect, but it turned out better than expected, with a slight swirl so it looked tie dyed. I used gel food coloring from the local crafts store. This was excellent and produced very vivid and bright colors. I posted a photo of it on my Facebook page and I got rave reviews on how it looked. Tastes good too. By the way, my daughter loved it, and now her older sister wants one!

Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
I took the advice of a few reviewers and made this today with these changes: strawberry filling instead of cherry, added a small can of drained mandarin oranges, a small can of drained pineapple chunks, added 1 banana, used only 1/2 of the container of whipped topping (french vanilla flavor), 1/2 the can of condensed milk (used fat free version), did NOT add the pecans but added about 1/2-3/4 cup of toasted coconut, which made it more like an ambrosia recipe but all of this was a great combo. This was scarfed down by everyone in the family. My daughter said to make another batch ASAP! And since I still have 1/2 container of topping and 1/2 can of condensed milk, I have a good excuse to 'use them up'!

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2001
Though my kids weren't a big fan, I sure enjoyed them...I ate the leftovers the following day. I thought it was a welcome change from sweet potatoes dripping with butter/sugar/marshmallow. I actually prefer it this way.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
This recipe turned out excellent. I couldn't believe how easy this was..only took maybe 5 minutes longer than opening a boxed brownie mix! The only change I made was to use butter flavored shortening instead of butter (I didn't have enough butter). Personally I think doubling the walnuts would be better, at least what little I got to eat...my daughter and mostly my husband wolfed it down! My husband even joked don't make it again because he wants to eat the whole pan in one sitting! Definitely going to try it again with double walnuts and maybe I will also try pecans.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2001
I didn't have maple syrup in the house so I replaced the maple syrup with 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of honey...boy did I get rave reviews from the family! Everyone loved this, including my youngest daughter who can be quite picky when it comes to vegetables. This will be seen on our dinner table again!

Sugar Cookies VII

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2002
I used 1/2 butter, 1/2 butter flavored Crisco shortning in the recipe, and refrigerated the dough for a couple of hours. I didn't roll them, but I put rounded pieces of dough onto cookie sheets and baked them. I had no problems with them spreading at all..chewy/crispy at the same time. The whole family loved them...couldn't stop eating them!
