Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
This was so easy to make, but I used low fat butter milk that extra step to sour whole milk is pointless. I used a little bit more baking powerder & soda as this is what causes the fluffy rise. I made these pancakes 2 days in row. I topped them w/ chopped banana. Ate half w/ Mexican Agave Syrup & pure dark amber maple syrup. I also did the extra step of blending the egg whites & folding them into the mixture last I don't think that does anything.. because the key to this is after mixing the pancake mix you must let it sit for 20 minutes before cooking. I made big fluffy pancakes so the current measurements are really for 2 servings for 2 people to get about 2 or 3 huge pancakes. I will never buy already made pancake mix.. Also I will add some vanilla or almond extract to the mix & little more surgar. But since I am gradually cutting surgar out of my diet I will make this w/ splendor next time. You can also deglaze some canned peaches in a sauce pan w/ some vanilla little sugar make your own peach syrup fruit topping.

Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
PERFECTO!!! I really like blue cheese dressing & a lot of the blue cheese dressing you buy out the store has a sweet taste to it (Wishbone). Which I have in the fridge as I type this review.. Since I had all these ingredients I decided to make it from scratch. I was only making a little so I eyeballed the proportions I had a small canister of crumble blue cheese I added at the end. It came out perfect.. I'm throwing the wishbone blue cheese dressing in the trash.

Foil-Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
This was ok, taste very Asian over rice. I didn't have any Hoisin sauce could not find it at the store so I looked up a recipe & made it. I used my magic bullet to make the sauce. The cilantro is very important to use in this recipe. I used Chicken breast terderloins cut up. Overall this was alright, I doubt I will make this again . at least the clean up was very easy. & you can cook this in a toaster oven instead of heating up your huge oven.

Creamy French Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
Wow!!! I did this on a whim. I wanted French Dressing for my salad didn't feel like running back to the store. So I found this easy recipe on this site. Well I combined this recipe w/ Favorite French Dressing on this site.. Used Ketchup & little Chili Sauce for a little kick. I used mostly honey to sweeten it & a tablespoon of surgar grinded down fine w/ my Magic Bullet blender. Since I was not looking to make a huge amount I made it in one of my Magic Bullet cups put all the ingredients in the cup also added 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard. I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead of Canola or vegetable oil. Real salad dressing should use olive oils better for you. I was so impressed how tasty this was, all I know is that I will never buy French Dressing out of the store again. Making your own is cheaper & better.

Baked Bar-be-Que Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I've always knew how to make barbecue chicken, but everytime I made I figured it was something I was missing . So I looked up this recipe an it's awesome. What was funny to me that when I was about to take the chicken out after 1 hour to remove cover & drain the fat to put the barbecue sauce on... Low and behold I had no barbecue sauce...wth So I went to my creative mode made homemade barbecue sauce from scratch, w/ ketchup, worchester sauce, honey , apple cider vinegar & little hot sauce... came out perfect & it didn't taste Ketchupy at all.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I made this an it looked like a professional chef had prepared this dish.. The tomatoes ad such color to the dish. I also used fresh diced garlic in the sauce w/ the butter.. I also cooked in the greenbean after cooking the tomatoes for 1 minute. This was a good new to serve green beans. I also did not put the sugar in it, didn't want sweet vegetables.

Minute Steaks with Barbeque Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I did this recipe w/ Ribeye & Angus Sirloin I really did the beating of the meat with meat tenderizer. I change the marinade used steak sauce instead of barbecue.. I also omitted the hot pepper sauce didn't want it spicy.. But overall the steaks came out great this was my first time cooking steak in a frying pan on top of the stove. The gravy came out perfect my brother-in-law thought it was steak sauce till he tasted it .

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
I made this w/ red potatoes , that was all I had so I baked 2 of them took filling out of both put in bowl.. Kept the shell of the larger red potaoes. I had to use bacon bits because I was out of bacon.. I used Wisconsin Extra Sharp White Cheddar cheese & diced up couple slices of yellow onion.. got my blender out mixed everything together.. OMG you can lick the blender handles I filled back up the potato shell it over flowed some so I wrapped extra aluminum foil to support hold the extra filling... WHEN IT WAS DONE, THE BEST BAKED POTATO I ever had.. I didnt ad topping at all except the butter because I forgot to mix it in. If you like potatoes this is the best way to eat them.. Hell you actually can make bake a lot of potatoes & blend together make this into a cassarole soufle.

Italian Cream Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
This is my favorite cake & my first time making a cake from scratch other than a pound cake. I did use butter instead of the margarine feel it will give it more of a moist taste. I also grated my pecans & coconut flakes to almost like a powder form because I don't like chunky cake unless it carrot cake. Because of how I grated down the pecans it does change the color of the cake to a tan color looks really cool. Make sure you fold in the egg whites last thing, I gave this 4 stars instead of five because the instructions don't tell you , but you need to kind lightly bounce the cake pans on the counter to get any air bubble out of the mix. If you do not do this you will get parts of the cake to expand like a bubble which will kind of through off your layering. I let them cool for 15 minutes .. I DID NOT do the frosting as its said in this recipe, Look up WhIPPED CREAM CREAM CHEESE FROSTING on this site.. Make this frosting its much better & REAL cream cheese frosting taste like you at a gourmet creamy cheese Frosting.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
WOW.... I can't believe I did this right.... but its really easy if you follow the instructions.. but its also better to use powder surgar as well.. When you mix the cream cheese make sure its at room temp , use a spoon to mix the vanilla extract and sugar once you get it all mix to where you see a look kind of creamy get your wisk an then continue to mix to get any lumps out & real creamy..... Now the key to this frosting is WHIPPING THE HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM... I used a stainsless steel bowl that I had in the Freezer 2 hours freezing I also froze my blender mix utensils . I poured the whipping cream into the cold bowl & begin mixing. BE PATIENT this takes about 5 - 12 minutes of mixing.. I started with it on low setting 1 then escalated to 5.. You continue to mix till it thickens so that it will be popping off the mixer .. It will look like very firm whipped cream. Yes it needs to be firm so you can fold it into the cream cheese mixture. Get your flat spatula pull the whipped cream out of the bowl start folding & steering it in the bowl. I pulled some , mixed some, pull so more into the mix till I got all the whipped cream out of the bowl. Now as you stir this will look like a smooth creamy frosting. I then put it in the fridge to chill while my cake cools down... FOLLOW THE RECIPE EXACTLY... THIS WILL TURN OUT PERFECT

Sweet Cottage Cheese and Bananas

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
OK.... I AM NOT ... and have never been a cottage cheese eater.. I have always thought it was yucky.. But since I am on low fat diet & need high protein to help w/ my body building. I did enhance it more to be on the safe side. I added slice fresh strawberrys and walnuts to the mix.... it was great... I now can eat cottage cheese & enjoy it.

Turkey and Bacon Panini with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This was a great receipe.. my first time making a panni.. I don't have a panini press so i used my cast iron grill i put on my gas stove on low heat... I used a brick double covered in aluminum foil, got that from Rachel Ray... Since i was making this for 1 person.. myself.. so I cut the ingrediants.. Also since I am on a low fat diet I had to change some of the ingredients. I made my spread from lite mayo , spicy mustard , and mixed sundried tomatoes in with it..mmmmmmmmmmmm delicious.. I use jack cheese .. And since I had just loaf bread.. I used my whole wheat bread ... This sandwich was so good.. Much better than having a plain turkey sandwich.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
I believe this recipes is good , but be careful what type of biscuit you buy.. I got Pillsbury Grand Homestyle buttermilk biscuit.. they taste very sweet so it made the dish taste like sweet dumplings. Otherwise the sauce is very good.. overall this will be good if your biscuits are not sweet.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
this was my first time making pepper steak.. wow this was easy.. and I made a big pot of it. It was very flavorful, I didnt use any salt , because of the use of garlic powder and the soy sauce which is loaded w/ sodium.. Also at the end of cooking you can taste it , add more soy sauce for taste.. THIS GETS TWO THUMBS UP ..

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
AWESOME!!! I will never go back to the traditional way of making mac-n-cheese.. I followed the instructions but made some alterations.. I did used BARILLA Multigrain- Elbows and Whole Grain Medium Shells I used 8 oz. of each because I was making a huge pan of this. So naturally I had to increase the amount of sour cream and cheese. I kept with the same amount of cottage cheese. I did alter the topping, I used bread crumbs w/ mixture of crunched up potato chips, I also put a little shredded cheese in the mix of the topping.... WHEN IT WAS DONE IT WAS GREAT.. I must say when I make it next week again for thanksgiving I will also add to the topping crunched up bacon.. I have uploaded pictures of what I made today.
