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.

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.

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.

Easy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
If you like your sweet potatoes sugary and cinnamon-y this is recipe for you... my daughter and I do so we liked it but more so without the marshmallows. *I did reduce the serving size to 2 to make the recipe... my boys do not like sweet potatoes and I didn't need 10 servings.*

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.

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.

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.

Spicy White Chili with Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
Made as directed with minor alterations....used roasted Hatch green chile I had in my freezer from the season this year,frozen corn and homemade chicken broth. I also used the optional seeded jalapeno and this was spicy! After initial tasting I went back and added 8oz of cream cheese to attempt to cool things down a bit and give the chili the creamy factor I was looking for. It helped some and this will be something I make again.

Quick Pumpkin Spice Latte

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
I wouldn't call this quick as my husband was quite impatient asking if it was done yet constantly while making this. It takes about 10 minutes or so. I added a dash or two of cloves in and added spice separately instead of pumpkin pie spice. I also used Splenda instead of sugar. It is important to strain or otherwise you will have pumpkin spice sludge in your cup. Overall when all was said and done my husband said this was better than starbucks.

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.

Chocolate Peppermint Meringue Drops

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
I have made these a few times since my original review and I still agree these are tasty treats. There are a few things you need to remember. Your egg whites need to be room temp when you go to whip them. I also use mint extract instead of oil. Do not over whip your eggs! Use an oven thermometer to check the temp of your oven. I have never had an issue with the oven temp and browning this way. I keep forgetting but I need to try this recipe with mini chocolate chips... I just feel they may mix in better. Also be gentle when folding in the crushed candy cane. Pipe onto a lined baked sheet using a piping bag or ziploc bag instead of dropping by tablespoon. These are pretty easy to make if you follow the directions and take your time.

Quick Almond Flour Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
These were quick and easy and great starter recipe for those looking for a gluten free/paleo pancake alternative. I halved the recipe and only used a pinch of salt. I think more would have been too much. Vanilla extract would be a nice addition and I will try that the next time I make them.

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.

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.

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.

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.
