Thai Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
We LOVED this recipe!!!!! Used chicken breast instead of shrimp, subbed almond butter for tahini because this was all I had, used whole wheat spaghetti, and julienned all the veggies. It was amazing, I ate it all the next day for leftovers!!!! Thank you!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
Our family really liked this simple 'comfort food' recipe. I doubled the sauce and was able to make 2 small casseroles, one to bake now, and one to freeze. I would suggest using a sharp cheddar on top (for more flavor). I added a little minced garlic with the bread crumb/butter mixture and the house smelled soooo good!!! Thanks for taking me back to the 80's!!!!

Graham Cracker Crust

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
This was a very easy crust to make, my family loved it. I used it for an unbaked pie, which was quite heavy and dense, it just barely held together with the thin sides ~ so next time I will add a quarter to the recipe and build up the sides of the pan a little thicker. The taste was GREAT!!!!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
I loved this recipe, I DID end up adding about 1/4 cup extra flour, and about 2 tbsp extra confectioners sugar, just to make them stiff enough to hold up for thumbprint cookies. Rolled into balls lightly, thumbprinted. When they were done I filled half with homemade raspberry jam, and the other half with melted chocolate chips (mixed with a little heavy cream).When they cooled I dusted them lightly with shaved chocolate and confectioners sugar. AMAZING!!!!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Okay I'm not even kidding, this is the best food I have eaten in I don't know how long. My 14 year old picky eater, who doesn't like his foods even touching, DEVOURED it!!!!! We used long french baguettes and toasted them with fresh garlic butter first, cooked the roast from FROZEN on high for 4 hours, came out brilliantly. I want to marry this recipe. YAY!!!!

Pumpkin Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
This was the best tasting pumpkin pie I have ever had. I will search for a recipe no longer. It had a nice sweet flavor, very old fashioned tasting!!! :) However, it did require longer cooking time, 60 minutes at 325. I took your advice to triple it, and ended up with TONS of filling. I was able to make 4 pies and 6 tarts. Maybe using cake pans instead of pie plates would hold more liquid, anyhow it was great. Left overnight the flavors blended and it just tasted amazing!!!!!LOVE the taste and texture, absolutely perfect, thankyou so much for this recipe.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
I really loved this recipe. Took others advice and used 1 1/2 c coconut milk and 1 1/2 c h&h in place of the 3 c half and half. Used the actual flour called for in the recipe, not corn starch. Also used coconut extract in both the custard and the whipping cream( I made real, fresh whipping cream and used lots, to get the pie higher like the photo depicts. Maybe 3 cups, for real!)It is REALLY rich and really amazing, and really fancy looking. Thanks for the recipe!!!!!

French Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Followed directions, except for adding 2 tbsp grape seed oil to soften the dough, and I didn't use any sesame seeds. This is the best french bread recipe I have ever used. Bread machine or scratch. It was absolutely perfect, crusty outside and soft inside YUM!!!!. I already started the next one and we haven't finished the first batch. Thanks for sharing!!!!

Soft Sandwich Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I liked this recipe, and I will definitely make it again. When making hamburger buns.... For CARB-crazy people...Use half the sugar and roll out at half an inch or thinner! It makes a nice thin low-carb bun so you don't feel like you ate the whole farm!

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
Okay my family really liked these... They were lots like a fudgy brownie instead of a cookie. Don't be alarmed by the pre-baking consistency, it ends up fine. I did use butter instead of oil, and added a cup of chocolate chips. Very nice!

Buttermilk Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
NOT REAL PANCAKES. I am sorry to have to do this, but I can't give these a great review. I tried them to make and freeze as a quick to-go snack, though I was confused about the mixing method - THE BLENDER?? Doesn't this go against traditional pancake 'mix until just barely combined' reasoning? OKAY, well it does. They seemed at first to be light and fluffy, LOOKED GREAT but the texture was just too weird. Like gummy, or something. I am still going to make them for myself, alter the recipe and include whole grains, and use them as a carb boost before running. But not ever for morning pancakes.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This is ridiculously amazing (IT REALLY IS), and easy. Read all the comments but stuck to the recipe, though I cooled at the shortbread stage, and at the caramel stage before spreading chocolate. I think if you are going to TOTALLY cool in between stages, at least SERVE at room temperature to ensure the layers don't separate when you bite into one. I think I just gained ten pounds and STILL I am making more. Thanks for making me fat!!!!

Crunchy Pumpkin Pie Granola

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
It was a nice recipe, I used pumpkin puree instead of applesauce, and a mix of cranberries and blueberries dried. It is really good, a nice size recipe too, the house smelled fabulous. Thanks!

Beer Batter for Fish

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
Really great recipe. I halved it, and added 1/4 tsp of garlic powder, used a dark beer. It was really great! Silly me, I tried using the basket of my deep fryer and the first batch of fish was ruined, totally stuck to the bottom of the basket. Afterward I just dropped it in the fat without the basket and when it was it looked just like it came from a restaurant! Only it tasted even better!!!! I have lots to learn about deep frying, obviously! Thanks for the great recipe we won't use another!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
These were great, perfect for a sweet treat, family loved it. I think the trick is to keep them small, and cool the cake crumbs a bit before adding icing. We also made this recipe replacing our own home make chocolate cake recipe and home make chocolate icing, dipped in melted chocolate chips. This is a very logical, forgiving recipe. You cannot go wrong if you improvise, just make sure to FREEZE THE BALLS ON A COOKIE SHEET before dipping. FOR GIFTS, Package in a round cookie tin, individually placed in decorative muffin papers. LOVE IT!!!!
