Grandma Sherrill's Bagels

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
Simple and delicious. The dough is a delight to work with. I used bread machine yeast, kosher salt, and warm water, and kneaded 12 minutes or so to get it elastic and smooth (it was never perfectly smooth). You really can just punch a hole in these bagels. I shaped mine with wide holes, expecting the holes to get smaller as in other recipes I've tried, but they never closed up. After boiling, I put an egg white/water mix on top of some bagels and topped with various mixes. On metal baking sheets with a convection oven, it took about 20 minutes to cook the bagels. On a ceramic (I think) Pampered Chef pan, it took 25 minutes. I can't get over how fast and easy these were! Thanks for the recipe!

Amy's Creamy Black Bean Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
I doubled this and served once as a side dish and once as a dip. It received rave reviews at church. I made a few changes based on personal preferences. I replaced the green bell pepper with more red and yellow peppers, substituted plain yogurt for the sour cream, and used corn I had canned. Simple to make, versatile, and tastes great on the second day!

Homemade Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
I usually halve the recipe and end up with enough cookies to make 12-15 sandwiches. I fill with ice cream and store them in the freezer.

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
I had never thought about putting rosemary and thyme in spaghetti sauce, so I was nervous but curious about this recipe. Taste wise, it was not my favorite spaghetti sauce. However, everyone still ate it, and the leftovers will be used in other dishes. Texture wise, I love it. I will adapt my spaghetti recipe for use in the crockpot. I started from whole tomatoes versus sauce, and cooked on low overnight.

Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
Tasty and clears out the sinuses. I made several modifications and substitutions due to the pantry situation. I omitted the salt and pepper, subbed celery for the bell peppers, used plain yogurt and blue cheese in place of the dressing, and shredded some leftover roasted chicken. It's delicious warm and I can't wait to taste it cold!

Sugar Snap Peas

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
I used dried thyme and garlic powder and onion powder in place of the shallots. Quick and delicious snack or side.

Butter-Free Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Very good, especially once cooled. Perfect for a snack or on-the-go breakfast. I used regular milk instead of soy, creamy peanut butter, and added mini chocolate chips. Muffins were moist and needed no frosting. Next time I might add some rolled oats for extra interest.

Incredibly simple and very tasty. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Finally! This is a healthy afternoon snack, or morning breakfast, that the kids can help make. We were out of applesauce so I used 2 mashed bananas and a little oil to make 0.75 cups. I also added a touch of vanilla and used the mini-chocolate chips. I baked these for 15 minutes in a mini muffin tin. This is a muffin all of the kids will eat!

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
I made these since the kids love maple and brown sugar oatmeal. These freeze very well and are easy to pop into the toaster or microwave on a school morning.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was super-delicious! Using what was in the pantry, I omitted the bacon and used Al Fresco Sweet Italian Chicken sausage. We sprinkled a little parmesan over top before serving.

Fancy Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Love this! I've made this twice in the past two weeks because the whole family eats it. I've yet to have red peppers on hand, but I can't wait to try it with them. I also don't have fresh dill and instead use half the amount of dry dill.

Glazed Corned Beef with Lentils

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This review is for the corn beef only. It was my first time ever cooking corn beef, and it turned out nicely. Preparation was simple, and it made good leftovers for corn beef hash.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Delish! I used minced garlic and a 12 oz can of pepperoncinis. It works well with other types of roast too. I served it with sharp provolone on a toasted hoagie. It was too spicy for the kids, but it's too good not to make on a semi-regular basis.

Long Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was very, very good and exceptionally easy to prepare. I replaced some of the veggie oil with sesame oil and used 1/4 tsp ground ginger since I didn't have fresh. I also added a shredded carrot. The kids had colds/upset stomachs, and this was gentle yet nourishing. They ate it well, and we enjoyed it for lunch the next day.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
The individual parts were delicious. I could gobble up the sour cream/cottage cheese mixture, and I used Ms. Espy's enchilada sauce from this site. The chicken mixture was also good and assembly was simple. Somehow it just didn't work when it all came together. The taste just wasn't there for us.

Double Peanut Butter Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
The cake had a lovely texture, but it didn't taste like peanut butter at all. I frosted it with chocolate rather than the peanut butter frosting called for. I likely won't try this again, but if I did, I would experiment with increasing the amount of peanut butter.

Rice and Lentil Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
This was FANTASTIC! It had a great flavor and the entire family loved it. Best of all, it is so easy to prepare. I changed this a bit according to ingredients on hand. I used chicken and sun-dried tomato sausage, omitted the bell peppers, and added more rice, lentils, and chicken broth. I used 3/4 cup each rice and lentils.

Feta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
It's a good recipe for when you want a break from "regular" chicken salad. I would probably make this once or twice a year.

Sesame Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
These make a great snack or side dish. I used regular vinegar in place of cider vinegar.
