Chef John's Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2014
This was fantastic! I have made shrimp cocktail a few times but it was missing "something". This recipe hit the nail on the head for us and was most like what you order in a restaurant. Only change made was I did not have the tarragon so I subbed oregano. Perfection!

Honey Maid Holiday Cheesecake Presents

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2014
This is an easy recipe, quick to prepare and *good* as is. If I were to make again I would make some changes. First I would use 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs instead of crushing the crackers by hand. (note I reduced the recipe size to 20 servings and this is for that change) I would also add a 1/2 tsp of lemon juice to the filling and a full teaspoon of vanilla. I reduced the recipe to 20 servings so I could use two- 8oz blocks of cream cheese. I also used an 8 inch spring form pan. I used up a can of cherry pastry filling for the topping. Everyone enjoyed the cheesecake but thought it was a little light in flavor.

Apple Bran Muffins from Mott's®

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
The muffins baked up very nice, great texture but not sweet enough. I used the whole egg to keep the moisture. I would use all brown sugar next time and increase the amount. I may also try using a sweetened raisin bran as well. Nice muffin that I will make again with some tweaks.

Cranberry Orange Tea Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
Nice recipe, not sweet. I made as muffins and they baked up in about 18 minutes. I used fresh cranberries that I chopped up in place of dried. I would give these more sugar and a healthy dose of vanilla extract next time. Also more orange zest. Will make again with my changes.

Double Fudge Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
This was fairly easy to make and my kids had no problem finishing them off. The dough was VERY stiff and the cookies had to be flattened as they did not spread well for me. I used up small quantities of walnuts, pecans and mini chocolate chips that were very good with the chocolate brownie flavor. Good but not something I would make again.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies from Mazola®

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
All in all an OK cookie. My family prefers a chewy peanut butter cookie and these were on the dry and crisp side. Good flavor and a sweeter PB cookie than our usual. That being said, it didn't take very long for the cookies to disappear but I will stick to our favorite recipe.

Chocolate Applesauce Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2014
This was a no go for us. First bite was our only taste. The texture is just off even though you know there is applesauce in it it still is kinda surprising and off putting. We will not make this again.

Applesauce Energy Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2014
We did not care for this. It was bland and the bars were cake like and crumbled very easily. They did not hold together. I would not make this again.

Orzo with Bacon, Mushrooms and Italian Seasonings

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
This was an amazing dish! I chose this for the Allstars fall comfort food makeover recipe. I substituted Johnsonville breakfast sausage for the bacon. I followed the recipe with the exception that I used all homemade broth (5 cups)and not the water. It was a very nice change in place of sausage stuffing. We will be having this again. I can also see adding some zucchini or other veggies to make a complete meal out of this. Husband snagged the leftovers for lunch - lucky guy!

Morning Delight Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
We did enjoy this recipe but I made a few changes. I opted not to use the cilantro (we aren't fans) and I didn't use the sun dried tomatoes. I opted to use some hot-n-spicy, fresh, salsa I had on hand and fresh parsley. I also used egg beaters and Cabot cheese that is lactose free. If I were to make this again I would use sausage that I could crumble as we prefer that texture to the slices of sausage.

Caramel Pecan Shortbread Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
This was a tough one to review. The taste is good but I had problems with the toppings sticking. Spreading the caramel caused the cookie's top layer to crumble. The nuts crumbled and didn't stick very well. It tasted good enough to try again but I will make a few changes such as layering the caramel to glue it all together.

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2014
What a treat this soup was! I adapted it slightly but kept very close to the recipe. I used home made chicken stock, some chopped garlic, I chopped the spinach, used cayenne black pepper blend, home made gnocchi and a bit of fresh thyme. I used lactose free whole milk with great results. The soup was thick, rich and very satisfying on a chilly day. Family thought the soup would also be good using sausage in place of the chicken. So good and easy to put together! Will definitely make again.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2014
Almost instant gratification with this recipe but it cooled quickly enough to dive right in! I also like that it uses no eggs. I had dark brute cocoa powder for a darker chocolate flavor. Will no doubt make this again. (so good to use as a dip for bananas and orange segments, pineapple too!)

Peanut Blossoms II

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2014
My family loved these. They baked up uniformly and were soft and chewy- perfection! I've made them twice and both times the results were consistent.

Jewish Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2014
Classic recipe that came together easily. I used approximately 4-5 cups of apples and rolled them in Vietnamese Cinnamon for a stronger and more pungent flavor. I topped with a maple glaze of powdered sugar, maple extract and enough milk to have that drizzle consistency. We also grilled slices and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Delicious!

Sriracha Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
Yum! Made these for breakfast today and I used lactose free whole milk. I also added in some diced tomatoes, peppers, onion, parsley and a little cheddar cheese, then rolled it all up in a whole grain tortilla. Delicious!

Easy Sriracha Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
My girls and I made this for a quick lunch. We had some leftover chicken cutlets and broccoli that we chopped up and added in. Gave it a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese to finish. Only changes from the actual recipe were I used olive oil as I don't use peanut oil and I added some fresh garlic. Good recipe you can play around with!

Cheese Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
This was really tasty! We split the recipe into two portions and to one we added the artichokes (Only had one jar on hand) and to the other half we used pickled banana peppers instead. Simple and easy! Be sure to use a good quality sharp provolone cheese.

Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper and Olive Oil

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2014
This recipe is pretty much the way my Italian MIL taught me to make it. I used fresh parsley and a bit of basil from my garden and my garlic I preferred minced. Quick and simple and so delicious!?#?AllstarsBarilla?
