Kitchen Sink Cookies

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
These are good, but, man, those vanilla chips are hard to find.

Orange Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
These are extraordianry. I used exactly the ingredients the recipe called for--didn't make any substitutions.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
I was attracted to this waffle recipe because it didn't require separating eggs. Unfortunately, they had no flavor. I have to admit that I used part whole wheat flour. I may try them again, using all white flour and more salt.

Airport Bob's Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
I fixed this for Thanksgiving and it's definitely a keeper. I used slightly more bacon because I hadn't measured the beans, and fresh beans instead of frozen.

Christmas Eve Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
This is good any time when the weather is cold. Long cooking time makes the meat fork tender! however... 1. Recipe needs salt 2. I used a bit more meat. 3. Like some other posters, my instinct was to brown the meat in some fat, but I didn't, maybe next time. 4. I used a very big, heavy skillet with a tight-fitting lid 5. I used regular tomatoes, not stewed 6. I did not thaw the peas and recommend that you don't 7. most importantly, instead of boullion cubes, I used 2 teaspoons of "Better Than Boullion" paste and two cups of vegetable stock. The extra liquid was very helpful, and in fact I don't think it would have worked for me otherwise.

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
I used Jimmy Dean sage sausage and pre-cooked it a bit. Otherwise I stuck to the recipe. In the future I may experiment with vegetarian options using tofu or mushrooms. The only problem is that the recipe doesn't specify how big the zucchinis should be. I used one small one and two fairly big ones. I used a grapefruit knife to scoop out the zucchini. A pineapple knife might also be good.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
I have to admit that I added a cup of water. After following the recipe, I got a crumbly, grainy substance that I don't see how I could have spread into a baking dish. But with water it was fine. I also substituted raisins for the nuts and butter for the margarine in the frosting recipe.

Slow Cooker Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
I simmered this in a stockpot with a lid instead of the slow cooker since I don't have one. I used 2 or 3 cloves of fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I used fresh tomatoes and added a little water(not too much). I skipped the Italian seasoning. I used part yellow bell pepper instead of all green. I also cut the zucchini a little finer than the picture shows. Next time I will probably try a less spicy sausage.

Savory Tomato Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
I used fresh tomatoes because I had a lot of garden tomatoes. I also used dried basil. Next time I may use something other than raisins, maybe tomatoes,

Chicken Marsala II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
This was good. I used a teaspoon or so of fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder. People who don't like garlic may want less.

CB's Black Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2014
I simmered this in a stock pot since I don't have a slow cooker. I used Anaheim peppers instead of jalapeno because I had a lot of garden peppers to use up. I also used the equivalent amount of a different type of bacon. I soaked the peas the night before, which may not be necessary but its usually what I do. I would like to try this sometime with red beans or pinto beans.
