Blackened Tuna

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2003
I definatly had to open the windows for this one. I had three steaks and experimented with one. Instead of the cajun seasoning I tried beef fajita seasoning and it was incredible. I used an 11.5in cast iron skillet, olive oil, and unsalted butter. I follwed the directions and turned the heat up to high and I covered the pan. I was a little nervous though; I thought the pan would catch fire so I had my fire extinguisher handy. The amazing part was that my kids loved the one that was cooked with fajita seasoning. They thought it was white fillet mignon. This is now one of my favorite recipes.

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2003
I used two medium sized granny smith apples peeled and finely chopped. I used margarine instead of butter. I followed the advice on adding the topping during the last five minutes of baking. It seemed a little strange since the muffins were almost cooked. It was difficult to spread the mixure evenly since it kept rolling off the hill shaped top of the muffin but I did it anyway. I did not grease and flour my pans I just sprayed with Pam. They did not stick. I used a pan that made six very large muffins. I filled them about 3/4's of the way. The only part that stuck was the baked on topping but with a thin knife it could easily be chiseled off. I also followed other review advice and added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. These were awesome. The texture is light moist and fluffy with a slightly crunchy topping. It tasted a little like cinnamon apple coffee cake.

Cappuccino on Ice

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2002
You must try this recipe. I made it without the vanilla and it was great. It tasted exactly like the coffee one would get in a vietnamese restaurant. I used Cafe Du Monde's Coffee and Chicory Blend. This recipe beats Starbuck's anyday. I gave it a 5 star in the kid department because all my friends are like kids and they all loved it.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2002
Ahh, now this is my kind of recipe. It is soo easy to make and the taste is quite divine. One thing I have done to make it even easier is make a big batch of the dry ingredients. I suppose you could do the same for the honey, mustard, and butter but I have no idea how long it will keep for. About the peacans. I tried pecans the first time I made this. The second time I used walnuts. I seem to like the walnuts better. Because I like the honey-mustard-butter thing I make extra and drizzle it over the the finished recipe. This is one of my all time favorite recipes.

Aunt Mary's Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2002
I took all the advice and this is what I did. I used 1.3 cups of crushed crackers instead of bread crumbs. I could'nt decide between baking and frying so I did both. I baked at 350 for 15 minutes then I flattened and fried (used just a tad of olive oil, but probably could have done as well without) on each side until golden brown, put them back on the cookie sheet and put a teaspoon of riccotta cheese on each and put back in the oven for about 10 minutes. They were really good. My 5 year old daughter just loved them. The only reason I bought an eggplant is because she liked the way it looked. I have never made an eggplant dish. I guess it must be beginners luck. And one other thing; I used romano cheese instead of parmesan. I think I better get another eggplant. Oh, they could use a little salt.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2001
I have always liked oatmeal cookies, but have never found a good recipe. These were really good. They were a little on the sweet side but I did not mind. They were easy to make and the whole family loved them.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2001
Would someone please tell me what baking mix is? I tried this recipe with regular flour and it was yukky. I then tried it with pancake mix; they tasted grose. Then I tried it with bisquick and they came out ok but not what I had expected; they were dry. I did like that butter sauce. When I find out what baking mix is I will try again. I asked at the grocery store and no one knew. I looked it up in several cookbooks and on the internet but I could not find any info on it.

Blue Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2001
This was an amazing dish. Two people at my dinner part were cranberry sauce haters, but they did like this dish. It was really great. I felt so happy that everyone liked everything I made. All of it was from this web site.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2001
I am happy to report that my turkey came out absolutly perfect. It was moist, which is a first for me. Also, the gravy was the best I ever made. I just don't believe it. With all the great recipes I get from this web site I feel like Julia Childs.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2001
I got a new oven and decided to try these again. They are really good. OLD REVIEW: Gee, I followed the recipe and my cookies came out horrible. The problem that I encountered was that the cookies kept burning on the bottom. I tried a different cookie sheet with the second batch and they burned again. With the third batch I lowered the heat in the oven to 375 degrees. They burned anyway. Then I tried setting the oven to 350 degrees and halfway through the baking process flipped them over, like one would do with pancakes. This resulted in a cookie that was only slightly charred on both sides. In my last attempt I baked them at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. They were raw. I tried and had such a bad experience that I don't think I will ever make these cookies again.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2001
The thought of using cream of mushroom soup and onion soup mix in any recipe has always made me cringe with disgust. My luck with roasts has always been very bad. My husband brought home a roast about a week ago and I just put it in the freezer hoping that enough time would go by that I would have to toss it out due to old age. Well we needed room for the turkey and out came the roast. I was desperate. Now I am humbled. This was the best dish I ever had! My kids slurped their fingers and begged for more. They even ate the potatos and carrots. My husband could not believe that I could cook so well. The taste factor to easiness factor is 1000:1. We will be having this for Christmas dinner. Way to go Ms. Brenda Arnold!

Rhinelander Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2001
Tis recipe was basically very good. I made a few modifications and it came out really good. After thinking about the water to lentil ratio I increased the amount of lentils to 1 1/2 cups. I also added a can of diced tomatoes, juice and all. Also the ratio of salt/bouillon to water and veggies was in my opinion to little. I passed on the salt alltogether and used chicken bouillon in powdered form. I put in about 1/4tsp for every 1 cup of water. I was out of both thyme and white pepper. So I passed on the thyme and used black pepper instead. Also I added six cloves of garlic, two handfulls of fresh spinach, and a few fresh green beans for pizazz. Another thing I did was add another cup of carrots. My 4 and 5 year old loved it. They usually don't like anything. I think that next time I make this soup I will add more potatos. It was really good.

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2001
This tuna salad was very good. Next time I make it I will reduce the mayo to 1/3 cup. I would recommend increasing the curry a tiny bit. I would also add more nuts. The combination of the ingredients is great. I used solid white waterpacked tuna. It tasted fancy.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2001
This is what my husband had to say, "This stuff isn't just sort of good, it's incredible. I love it. I have not had apple crisp this good in 30 years." I did not have quick oats so I used regular oats and it came out great.

Chili I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2001
I just won the chili cook-off at my daughters school using this recipe! Just so you know, there were eleven entries. This was the first time I ever made chili. Everyone loved it. I opted for the 1/4 cup of brown sugar. I slow cooked mine for twice the recommended time. Also, instead of using sirloin I used 7 bone steak cut into pretty small cubes. The meat was very tender. A bit on the meat to bean ratio: I used one less can of beans and twice that of the sirloin, in my case 7 bone steak. Also, instead of beef broth I used a rich homemade chicken broth. Everything else remained just as the recipe called for. Thanks Robert!

Excellent Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2001
I must have done something wrong. My cookies were very dry. It was like eating oatmeal right out of the box. My daughter and I had fun making them. I will try making these cookies again.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2001
What I did not like about these pancakes is that they were not as fluffy as I had expected. They were a little dense and heavy. Although I liked the taste, two were enough for me. Some pancakes I don't get sick of. These, however, satiated me very quickly. I do not mind that. That way I eat less. At this point I am not going to blame the recipe. Whatever was wrong with them could have very well been the cooks fault. I will try making them again. They were fun to make. I had never made homemade pancakes. My children loved them. They must have eaten six each. They snitched them from the refrigerator when I was not looking.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2001
The french toast did not look "fluffy" to me. It was very tasty and easy to make and my family loved it. I think the recipe needs to be adjusted. It made enough to coat 8 slices of bread. I do not see how one could actually get twelve slices of bread coated unless very small slices of bread are used. I used Sara Lee sweet buttermilk french bread.

My Favorite Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2001
These cookies are fun to make and fun to eat. My kids love to make them, cut them out, and gobble them down. They are the best tasting sugar cookies I have ever encountered. Generally, I do not like sugar cookies, but these are phenommenal. I highly recommend brushing the cookies with the egg white and water mixture that is listed as optional in the recipe. They come a lovely golden brown.
