Marinated Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
These kabobs are delicious! I used 3/4 cup of vegtable oil instead of the one cup and I used 1 1/2 Tbsp of sesame seeds. I used an array of veggies including: Italian squah, whole mushrooms, bell pepper, green onion (the bulb) and fresh cut pineapple. The possibilites are endless. I couldnt stop eating them. Best dish I believe I have ever made. Give it a try.

Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
Came out awsome, I love the fact that this site allows you to change the serving size. Anyhow, I changed to 4 servings for 2 of us at home (extra for left overs) and my fiancee says they taste just like his moms. I left them a little lumpy since thats how he likes them. I did add about 2 cups of water since I had them going for over 6 hrs and just drained the seasoning/flavor water and added milk, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Anyhow, you will love these I had them on the table in 4-5 mins tops.

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
Being from CA and marrying a TX man I' ve struggled in tuning into TX cusine. So when my husband asked me to cook something for his work potluck I wanted to hit it out of the ball park. After studying the reviews for a week I produced the "Best F'in Ribs" (Guys at DH's work) I purchased 2 slabs of pork spare ribs (6.5 lbs) from Sams club and asked the butcher to cut them into sections of 3 for me (free) I BOILED WATER FIRST in a large stock pot and layered the ribs inside then I added: 3 TBSP g. powder, 3 Tsp of Pepper, about a TBSP Worchester sauce, 1 cup soy sauce, and 5-6 dashs of liquid smoke. I boiled for 1 hr. Then shut off the heat and covered and let it sit in the liquid for 1 hr 45 min. I purchased a square roasting tray from the dollar store (easy clean up and didn't have to nag DH about bringing back any dishs). I layerd the ribs in the tray (meaty side up) and brushed generously with a cup of Cattlemans BBQ Sauce. Covered with foil and cooked for 45 mins. Took it out flipped the ribs (at this point its difficult since they're falling off the bone) and lathered with another cup of BBQ sauce. Covered and cooked for another 1/2 hr. Then I flipped them again added BBQ drippings from the tray and broiled for 6-8 mins on high to give it a charred look. Covered with foil and sent DH to work along with a roll of napkins. He works the midnight shift and by the next day the word had gotten around to to 2 other shifts of my "F'in Good ribs". I'm so proud of myself!

Warm Dijon Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
Oh My Gosh!!! This salad came out so good! Used a tiny bit of sour cream since it was going to have to be thrown out soon along with the mayo called for (used regular didn't have any lite in the fridge.. guess I ran out) and used just the chives part of the green onion. I am no expert cook or anything but I can tell you this.. Reeser's Potatoe Salad ain't got nothing on this magnificant creation. Try it you will see! Happy cooking.

Great Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Awsome! And I just used store brand wheat bread. I can only imagine how much better it could be with more quality bread.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
As suggested by another reviewer I made the entire 8oz container or frosting and used the frosting ingredients measurments as suggested by the reviewer. I also used aluminum foil and greased it so cleanup would be easier. Believe it or not it was difficult to roll the dough and not have the filling squeeze out. I mixed the sugar,cinnimon, and butter together then spread onto the dough. But I was so proud of my rolls. I have never made anything like this before and I really felt proud of the end result. My rolls may not have been rolled so nice and tight but it really didnt matter since the frosting makes them look pretty anyway. And I found that the rolls that were rolled a little loose cooked better on the inside, they weren't as "doughy" as the one or two that I did roll tightly. Splenda brown and white sugars were used as well as Smart Balance butter to save on calories.

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Gorgeous bread. Added an extra 2 tbsp of sugar. I made it for my fiancees co workers and they were impressed. The dough was extremly sticky while it was on the dough setting in my machine so I added about 1/4 cup of additional bread flour. When I took it out it was still very sticky and hard to handle so I heavily floured my hands and work area and it seemed to help. I kneaded in 1/4 cup of golden raisins. and brushed on some egg wash. Took only 20 mins on a greased and floured cookie sheet. Before he took it to work the next day I wrapped it in large foil and put it on the keep warm setting in the oven at 200 degrees and it softened up.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
What I modified: 1.5 cup of WW and 1.5 Cup AP flours 2 tsp of greek seasoning (p[urchased from Target) and 1/2 tsp extra salt. They were cooked on a ceramic tile (works the same and cheaper than pizza stone) but did not puff up. I rolled 2 large and the rest thin. The large will actually work great for gyros (to fold over like tortillas/tacos) the others were small disks which I figured i would probably use them for hummus dipping. This morning as I was about to cut them into triangles, I grabbed a butter knife and carefully made slits and was able to make deep pockets in them. So, they do stay dense in the middle, but it took me about 3-4 mins to make a pocket on one. But it can be done. Next time I will not crowd them on the stone/tile and see if they do better baking in batchs. Baked for 6 mins.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
I subbed 1 stick salted butter and 1/2 cup Crisco Butter flavored shortening and 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. I hate cakey cookies so I was nervous when I saw them puffed up in the oven but as they were cooling they flattened. Lacked a little bit of sweetness. I might have to keep trying different recipes until I can get a perfect flavor.

Molasses Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
They look gorgeous. But i hate to rate these so low. I accidently added the remaining sugar to the dough, which I am thankful I did in the end result because these cookies have a spicy kick. I baked 9 rolled in sugar and 9 with sugar sprinkled on top. The sugar helps in toning down the flavor. They taste great when you put them in your mouth but leaves a strange after taste (must be the ginger). Gets 5 stars for being easy to make but 3 for flavor. Might make again with less salt and ginger.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
I loved the texture. I wasn't able to achieve the texture in another recipe I tryed. But the pie was way too sour! I might try making it again without any lime zest. But I will try another recipe "Phonecians" (not sure of the spelling) recipe and see how that one turns out.

Oatmeal MM Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
The batter/mix was very crumbly as another reviewer had mentioned and I used the ingredients exactly as listed. I put in 1 tsp of water but that wasn't much help so I ended up added about 2 tbsp of vegetable oil to make the mixture more "sticky" so it could hold together better. I made about12 giant cookies and pressed them down. Took about 15 mins to bake. Still crumbly even after once cooled. Not a bad thing just seems a little odd. Ended up looking exactly the same as picture #2. Will probably not make again.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly and these were very bitter and salty. I only cooked part of the batch. The rest is in the refrigerator. I'm trying to look for a way that I can salvage the rest of the dough. I may add some white sugar or peanut butter. I'd hate to throw the rest of the dough away since I bought the Crisco sticks especially for this..

Wheat Crackers

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2010
I agree with another reviewer they taste like toasted pita chips. You need to roll these out very thin if not they stay soft and bendable (not appetizing) I did not have a problem with the dough being dry but they were just very bland. I will need to search for another cracker recipe.
