Super Easy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Excellent recipe but I followed the advice of others. I used 1/2 cup milk and added 2TB of apple cider vinegar to it and let set a couple minutes before adding into the dry ingredients. Also make sure you let your doughnuts to sit before frying. I ended up with 9 doughnuts and 9 holes. Perfect amount for my kids for a special after school snack.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
I grew up eating macaroni salad every Sunday and grew to hate it. I have made this a handful of times for my husband's work and everyone always loved it. I tried it and they are right this is good stuff. I did read other reviews and decreased the amount of sugar to 1/2cup, added a extra hard boiled egg and used garlic salt instead of regular salt.

Famous No Coffee Pumpkin Latte

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Straining would help, that was the biggest complaint I had. My husband thought it was only ok nothing special and 3 out of 4 of my kids liked it. If I make this again i'll add nutmeg and cloves.

Cherry Crunch

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
Crisp part is almost perfect, agree with others and add a tsp of either vanilla or almond extract. It is a good base to use and try with other fruits. Used 2 cans of cherry pie filling. 1 just wasn't enough. Next time we will try fresh cherries/sugar, etc. We like this both cold and right out of the oven with ice cream.

Moon Pies

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
I was looking forward to making this recipe simply because i'm from the south where moonpies are plentiful. This recipe is actually for a whoopie pie. I followed the recipe as is. The cookie was ok a basic chocolate cookie, The frosting was good as well but runny. I'd use a different frosting.

Out of this World Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
This is a good base for a pasta salad but it needs some help. It is a bit on the bland side. Cutting the veggies into shapes is a nice touch for special occasions but a simple dice is just fine for everyday. I chopped our carrot instead of diced as well. Alike others I could not find the alien broccoli so used regular florets. I have made a ranch pasta salad similar to this in the past when I needed something last minute, tomato, cheddar cheese, red onion, bacon, chicken along with a few seasonings to add to oomph it up can turn this salad from eh to yum!

Chocolate Peppermint Meringue Drops

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
A new favorite in our house. I couldn't stop eating these so thank goodness they are low fat. Chocolate and Mint is a classic combination and was perfect for this cookie. Easy to make also!

Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
It's rare for me to make something all 4 of my kids like, rarer for me to get my oldest to eat something with tomato sauce but he had 2 pieces. I did make this with ground turkey due to a beef allergy and used my own pasta sauce. I forgot the parm on top but it was fine without it:)

Beef and Bean Crescent Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
Another kid reviewed recipe from me. I only had one can of crescents so halved the recipe which made the perfect amount for my 4 kids. My pickiest eater really liked these so these will be going on the make again list.

Original NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
These were yummy in my tummy! Love the dark chocolate! I did use the full bag of chips (as suggested by others to add more) and I chill my cookie dough at least an hour before baking.

Sweet and Salty Toll House® Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Just remade these with a minor tweak. Last year I thought kettle chips would make these better and they do! I used kettle potato chips with sea salt. I also used sea salt in the recipe and that helped with the sweet and salty contrast. I also do not recommend making these with margarine. I had some on hand and decided to use it instead of butter and my cookies spread a lot. Like in my original review I chilled the dough and made other high altitude baking adjustments.

Green Chili and Corn Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
This recipe needs a lot of help. I used fresh roma tomatoes since the recipe did not specify canned or not. I also used fresh hatch green chili also, that I sauteed until skin started to brown. I then added tomatoes and corn. I increased corn to 1/2 cup. I then used 1 cup milk (I did start at 1/4 cup but it was pasty and added more to get a good consistency) to 1/4 cup flour and cooked until thickened and then added 8oz cheese. If you like things extra cheezy add the other 8oz. I then tasted the dip and it was pretty bland so I added, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and fresh ground pepper. Fresh cilantro would be a good addition also.

Sweet Pork for Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
Sweet this is, too sweet for this prediabetic. I did goof and did not read the directions and dumped all the ingredients together and cooked the pork in that. When I realized my goof I did take out the salsa and chili's and run through the food processor, then shredded the pork combined the two and added back to the liquid and left on warm until we were ready to eat. All 4 of my kids devoured this but they preferred it on a roll instead of a tortilla. It was a bit too sweet for me though.

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Yummy in our tummies! My kids love haystacks but I usually don't make them because of having to use chow mein noodles, they're just not that nutritious. Now I can be sneaky mommy and use Fiber One and my kids can get a yummy treat that is good for them. I made the recipe as written and had no issues:) I will make again with butterscotch chips and may add in some nuts as well.

Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage, Endive, & Blueberry Salad with Toasted Pecans

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2012
A nice light salad. I couldn't find endive so I omitted it and used Feta instead of Goat Cheese (again couldn't find it). The dressing is perfect in my opinion but I felt the salad would be better without cheese or the sausage. The Al Fresco Apple Sausage was good but I thought it would be better in something else.

Grilled Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage with Tomato Cream Sauce Over Linguine

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
Made minor alteration based on personal preference. Used fresh basil instead of oregano, plain canned tomatoes instead of seasoned and omitted the red wine . Added 1TB sugar to cut the acidity from the tomatoes. Used whole wheat linguine also. We loved it.

Roasted Broccoli & Crispy Polenta with Roasted Pepper & Asiago Chicken Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
My younger 2 kids loved this and I think my youngest son is addicted to Al Fresco now. This was a quick and easy dish. I did make my own polenta instead of storebought.

Quick and Easy Refried Beans

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
3 out of 4 of my kid's liked these. We used them to make bean burrito's. By themselves they need something more to flavor but when paired with something (like in the burritos) they were ok. They were a little on the dry side also but I drained and rinsed my beans since the recipe did not specify if they needed to be drained or not.
