Banana Ice Cream Shake

Reviewed: May 9, 2015
This was more like Banana milk. I used 1/4 cup milk 1 banana as suggested by previous reviews and 2 generous scoops of ice cream along with 1/8 tsp. vanilla and it was WAAAAY too runny. I added another 2 scoops and it was a little thicker, but not much more than milk. SO... I added another 2 scoops and it was still very runny- but better. It has a decent flavor, but I'm sure I've lost a lot of the banana taste due to having to add so much more ice cream. I think this has a lot of potential if you only add a splash of milk. Maybe it was because I omitted the egg whites?

Jersey Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
I honestly think this may be one of those rare recipes that you just can't mess up. This was sooooo good!!! Even though I had a few of those uh-oh moments, I couldn't ask for anything better. My first "gotcha" was that substituteded canned tomatoes for fresh. I used one 28oz petite diced and one 28 oz can crushed. This didn't quite equal out to the 7 1/2 cups so I added another 14.5 oz petite diced. It was just a little shy of 8 cups... not too much over. I followed all other instructions exactly. Once everything was combined, I was like- this is good... but too tomatoey. I know, its tomato soup.. but then I realized that the sub'd tomatoes was WAY more than if I had fresh. Off to "The Buzz" I go looking for suggestions, thanks so much to "Sassyoldlady", "sueb", "misskitty", "manella" and "Cheryls cooking now!" for all your suggestions! I added 1 TBS sugar, I sprinkled Basil and onion powder 2 TBS butter and about 1/4 cup milk and let simmer for a few minutes. That fixed the flavor right up! Once it was all done... In used my immersion blender to smooth out the bits of carrts and tomatos. It had a texture I was accustomed to... I was thinking it should be more creamy. The immersion blender didn't quite cut it for me and the sieve made it too liquidy. I put it in on liquefy in the blender and voilĂ , it was just right. No tiny bits of carrots or tomato and extremely creamy! LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
Review 5167 here!! LOL! These are just perfect. I wanted to try this recipe due to the overwhelming # of reviews. After printing it out, I went to collect my ingredients. To my dismay.. I had no milk. The one thing I always have.. milk. Not to be out done, I substituted the milk with evaporated milk using 7oz of evaporated and 7 oz of water. The batter wasn't thick. It was perfect. I did let the egg set out for about 15 minutes before cracking and I beat it a little before adding to the milk mixture. Then I added the melted butter in the mix.. After all the wet ingredients were blended well, I added to the dry ingredients. I also sifted the dry ingredients 2x as someone had suggested. These were light, fluffy and delish!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
My DH really enjoyed this, but for me it was just okay. Maybe I should try using sausage as this was right bland.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This ended up more like Chili beans. I should have read the ingredients better before selecting this one. I was looking for a tradional Pino Bean ( to go with cornbread) type. The family liked this pretty good, it just wasn't for me.
