Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Yummy :) The cinnamon-sugar mixture did end up running a little, I tried the whole turning over thing and that did help a tiny bit, but then all of the brown sugar glazed over the top of the buns and kind of made them look messy. I easily scooped up the excess mixture with a spoons and placed it on top of the rolls making sure to get most of it on the inside. Everybody loved these and said they were better than the ones at Cinnabon. Makes plenty of frosting, so don't be greedy ;) Thank you, Marsha for this recipe. These are awesome.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Mmmm! I took some reviewers suggestions and cut the sugar.. I honestly wouldn't have minded the extra sugar, though. I did use sugar-free jello and I only found .3 ounce packages, so I wonder if the 3 ounce is a mistake?? Hm. It came out great either way. I didn't miss the extra sugar, but it was yummy with only 1 cup. If you do end up with a solid block of punch, you can easily scrape some of the ice if you just add a little bit of Sprite at a time. Thank you, Valerie! This is a great recipe and the whole family loved it :)

Cinnamon Honey Butter

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Whew! This is pretty good, but a bit too much honey for my tastes. My boyfriend made this and he and his family loved it. Made some with pumpkin pie spice and some with cinnamon.. I couldn't really taste either with so much honey :( Will make again but with less honey.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
This was good :) I made the mistake of taking others advice and tried the crockpot.. I left the potatoes in there for a good 3 hours, and they were still pretty hard. I ended up having to cook them in the oven for about another hour. Follow the directions, stick to the recipe and you will not be disappointed!! The only change I made was to chop my onions instead of slice. I'm glad I didn't listen to one reviewer who recommended leaving the onions out, I feel like that would have made this more on the bland side. I loved all of the delicious onion flavor. I wouldn't recommend using an entire onion for the 4 servings, though. I used only one onion for 12 servings and that was still plenty onion. I sprinkled some french fried onions on half of this, but it was tasty without them. If you don't use any, you wouldn't miss them. Also, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DOUBLE THE SAUCE. This makes PLENTY of sauce! Just my two cents, but I think this recipe is perfectly fine the way it is. Stick to the directions given.

Fresh Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
My boyfriend and I loved this the second time around. I don't know why I still put in the bell pepper, even though I hate it. I can't stand raw bell peppers because they are so overwhelming, and I just don't like them.. Neither does my boyfriend, so I left them out this time. I added feta and we ate this with toasted wheat pitas. Very yummy and very light! Will make this again, but only with the adjustments. Also, used dried herbs. No use in buying fresh herbs if I can't use them fast enough.

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Definitely double the vanilla!! These were good! SOOO simple, everybody loved them. I think they may have been a little dry, so I may make adjustments next time. But for simplicity and taste? This deserves 5 stars. I loved how they kind of "carmelized" on top. After baking, I filled these with a mixture of french vanilla pudding, whipped cream and a splash of milk. I then topped them with white chocolate buttercream and a chocolate dipped strawberry for Valentines and brought them to work. Yummy! Thanks, Marianne!

Herbed Cottage Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Mmmmm!!! Sooo good. I've been making this for several months now and have no clue why I haven't left a review. I have two tubs sitting in my fridge right now. My boyfriend LOVES it and he HATES cottage cheese. This is a great treat if you're health conscious or dieting. Also, BE SURE TO LET THIS SIT IN THE FRIDGE OVERNIGHT BEFORE SERVING. The flavor isn't half as intense as it will be the following day, and when I don't have chives, I just sub green onions. Just as good, the onions may be "spicier," but delish!

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
I used a lot of Bes' suggestions. But, the first time I stuck to the recipe, so the rating is based on that. But - I do have to say 1 1/2 cups of peanuts was WAY overwhelming for me. And then on top of that, to use peanut oil? Holy cow. It tasted SOOO good before smothering it in peanuts. I thought it looked like quite a bit of peanuts and was going to cut down, but saw another users review saying she wished for even more peanuts and so, I just kept pouring them in. I have to disagree, there were just way too many, they drowned out the flavor of the other ingredients. Also - if you take Bes' suggestion to use fish sauce - BE PREPARED. This stuff STINKS! The smell cooks out once mixed with the Pad Thai, but the whole family just wouldn't stop complaining about how smelly it was while I first heated it. Save the cooking of the fish sauce for last, or just mix it in when mixing the noodles, tofu, chives, etc. But well worth it! Must be good, my mother-in-law said, "D*mn, Sonya! This is GOOD!"

New Mexico Green Chile Breakfast Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
EDIT --- I'm putting this at the top, because it's pretty important.. When simmering the chile, make sure to not let the peppers simmer for too long, they can begin to lose their flavor as they're already roasted/cooked beforehand. Also, if you can find it - use the FROZEN hatch green chile. Okay. So I'm kind of nervous to say this, as there may be several New Mexicans lurking about... BUT - I do hate green chile. Yes, I am a resident of New Mexico. Born and raised. This was the first time I've EVER liked green chile. I used mild because I don't like my chile to overwhelm the taste of the dish, but I still want a little "kick." I could walk across the street and pay $5 for this burrito at a taco truck, but it tasted 200x better while relaxing in my pj's and chowing down on this baby. THANK YOU "applejedi1," for this outstanding recipe. Now, if only I could eat one everyday without increasing my chances of that heart attack ;)

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
Eh. I think the name, "World's Best Lasagna" is definitely an overstatement. This was not half as good as my mothers lasagna, and I've attempted this recipe twice. Once, following it to a T, the second time following other users suggestions, even letting it sit and meld in the fridge overnight. Sorry, John. This just didn't do it for me.

Lola's Horchata

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
Lola, I love you. Thank you so much for this simple recipe! I use less water, more milk, two sticks of cinnamon, sweeten to taste and leave to sit overnight now that I've experimented more. I've made this so often, I don't feel the need to measure anymore. I've tried this recipe, following it to a T, and that's what the four star rating is based on. I've just perfected it to suit my tastes! Yum! :)

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
This was "pretty good." Considering I basically live in the heart of the southwest (New Mexico) and eat spicy soups quite often (mmm, menudo), I'll try to be fair. I made this for my boyfriends family, following the recipe to a T. They said it was, "good." But I could tell that they weren't as impressed as they usually are with my food. Perhaps this would taste good to people up North. But, IMO - I wouldn't make it again, and I'm sending the leftovers to my mother to deal with, as there are plenty :P Makes more than 8 servings!

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
My boyfriend made these for a little BBQ we attended. Everybody liked them. I think they should marinate in the oil just a bit, or possibly use the tiniest tomatoes as possible so that they don't steal the spotlight. As another user suggested, I used TJ's marinated mozzarella balls, then poured the leftover oil over each skewer bite. Our friends said they tasted like, "fresh pizza!" Never had caprese, I'll assume :)

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
My boyfriend and I brought this to a little bbq with some friends of ours and I'm pretty sure this was the favorite dish of all! The girls and I were already picking at it while the guys made the burgers. There were only 6 of us, and there was nothing left to take home! I threw in some bacon bits and topped it off with a little sprinkling of cheese. Thank you for this wonderfully simple recipe Jenny! UPDATE: I made this a second time for my boyfriend and his family, definitely sub the salt with seasoning salt or leave it all out, turned out really salty the second time I made it.

Breakfast Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
This is a wonderful idea. I just sent it with my boyfriend to work and his co-workers said it was "bomb." Which I'm assuming means good because they all said they wouldn't mind eating it every morning for the rest of their lives! I left out the bell pepper and tomato because of personal preference, used sourdough and added chives to the eggs as Sheila T. suggested, and threw in some mushrooms. I then topped it with olives. This was wonderful. Thank you so much, Amy McCuan for a creative recipe :)

Mayo-Free Tuna Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
I think I just died and gone to heaven. I almost want to cry tears of happiness because of this recipe. I'm allergic to mayonnaise and don't even like it to begin with, and I've been eating my sandwiches with mustard for years. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE mustard, but the hummus adds that "creamy" consistency a true tuna sandwich should possess. THANK YOU SO MUCH, "A Turtle in the Kitchen!" You have made more than my day.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Very easy, simple recipe. Just a little tip for using up leftover goodies: Just throw 'em in here! Leftover muffins, banana cream pie, apple pie, etc. It's a great way to use up leftovers (if you ever actually happen to have any) and will add an extra YUM!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
This was really delicious! I followed another user suggestions, and used a tablespoon worcestershire in the ketchup/brown sugar sauce (which I mixed together). I also used italian seasoned bread crumbs instead of the saltines. Used sea salt, and soy milk. And also just one egg. Also added garlic. I feel garlic is just essential in meatloaf. I also followed a users suggestion for putting the sauce on both the top and bottom, which I will NOT do again next time. It came out WAY too sweet that way! It was overwhelming. This is a good recipe, but with a few tweaks, it is great. I will only place the glaze on top next time.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Yummy! Everybody liked it. And sooo cheap! We fed 11 people for under $15 and made extra for lunch the next day, but that was all eaten up too! I bought about 9 pounds of chicken from Costco, and this was the perfect recipe to help use it all up.
