Smoky Sausage Penne

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
I made recipe as written with no tweaks. As is this recipe was not a winner in my house. It works as a base but it needs help to make it something good. I doubt I would make it again but if I did I would add garlic, onion, pepper and other seasonings to give it better flavor and hide the from a can taste.

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
This recipe get's points because all 4 of my kids ate it without complaining but that said my husband and I did not like this. In fact I was told not to make it again. The sauce is bland and needs some help. It is a good base but that is about it. With doctoring up this could be a lot better.

Delicious Cinnamon Baked Apples

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
These did not turn out as I was hoping. The sugars did not caramelize to make a syrup for the apples. I did stir the apples at 30 minutes before adding water. Stirred again and baked longer in hopes of that yummy syrup but no luck.If I made this again I would reduce the nutmeg to 1/2tsp as it can be can be overpowering. I would also cut the cinnamon in half or just to 1tsp. All of the spices also left a powdery texture:/ I used half Granny Smith half Fuji apples.

Moist Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
Pretty good muffin, good chocolate flavor. My family and I liked it but my husband and I agreed it was a bit dry and needs to be more moist. I ended up with 18 muffins and baked for 17-18minutes.

Rich Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
I really hate giving recipes bad reviews but ...It has more of a cookie texture and is a bit dry. When making the batter it reminded me of cookie batter and I had to pat it into the pan evenly... it did not pour and spread. For the chocolate flavor you do need to add a bit more cocoa powder as suggested also.This was not a hit for my family.

Easy Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
This was pretty good but as other reviewers have said it has too much butter! If I make this again I would probably cut the butter in half.

Kelley's Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
I reduced recipe to two servings (with Allrecipes calculator) and used fresh peaches over frozen since they are in season. It baked up beautifully but the butter and sugar bubbled up until I took it out of the oven. If I made again I would reduce the amount of butter, it is a bit much. Adding cinnamon and nutmeg would be a nice addition to although it is tasty without it. My husband really enjoyed this too.

Zippy Egg Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
This wasn't bad but it wasn't good, definitely different. I think the soy sauce is out of place in this and was throwing me off. If I made this again I would omit it. I did not add salt due to the soy sauce. I did like the zip from the red pepper. I think with tweaking this could be good.

Hide the Veggies Please! Summer Squash and Zucchini Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
I got my picky eater to eat zucchini and squash,lol. I did shred the squash and red onion instead of chopping. I would omit the sugar in the future, it really isn't needed and use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder.

Creamy Rosemary Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
These were pretty tasty but I felt another cheese would have made these even better such as Gruyere.

Cheesy Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
We were disappointed in these but with alterations these could be good. As written the potato pancakes were bland and are in definite need of flavor. I would add onion and garlic. They were crispy on the outside and doughy in the middle. An egg may help or reducing the amount of flour.

Quick Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
Made recipe as written (minus the optional whiskey but with vanilla extract instead), it looked beautiful when poured into ramekins but after chilling it has turned into something not pudding like. It was very firm/thick. I did like the flavor of cinnamon with the chocolate. The consistency turned us off though. A bit of butter at the end may help that issue.

Peachie Peach Pecan Nut Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
Decent bread, nice and moist too. I upped the cinnamon to 1.5tsp and would have preferred chunks of peaches in the bread vs. using all puree.

Easy Bake Oven Cake Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
Much cheaper than the premade mixes and a better tasting but I wouldn't say it's to die for cake. Enough to make my daughter happy and my husband was able to say best cake ever to her without wincing like he does with the premade mix. When I used the full amount of batter our first cakes overflowed. Round 2 I removed 2 TB of batter and it was the perfect amount. We baked for 14-15minutes. I also used 2 raspberry lemonade single serve crystal light packages for the lemonade.

Zucchini Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
Yummy! My husband loved these.The only thing I would do different when making these again is to add garlic. I did fry in olive oil instead of the oil/butter mix.

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
Yummy cookie but not cake like. I would describe it as a brownie cookie. Omitted confectioners sugar because it was omitted from directions.

Healthier Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
This recipe was so-so. The meatloaf really did not hold together that well, it was really moist so fell apart easily. I did use ground turkey instead of beef due to food allergies. For my picky eaters I used onion powder instead of chopped onions. It was a bit on the bland side and should have looked at reviews of the original recipe first and seasoned appropriately:/ My kids did like the sauce that was on top.

Creamy Twice-Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
My kids loved these but I did make some minor adjustments. I "baked" my potatoes in the microwave instead of the oven. Once scooped I sprayed the potato skins with cooking spray so they would crisp a little when later baking. I needed to add more milk than what was called for to get a creamy and fluffy consistency. I just added milk a little at a time until the consistency was correct. I also salted to taste.
