Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
This is essentially the recipe that I use (I was going to submit my own, but this one is almost the exact same). The only differences are that I use a full cup of melted butter and 2 full eggs. And you have to refrigerate the dough for an hour or two!!! I obviously make smaller cookies as I get about 30, and therefore I only need to bake for 10 minutes (they look a bit under-cooked in the center but that's okay!). They are so soft and chewy (and they stay soft) and the closest thing to a Subway cookie that I've found.

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2014
I hate rating when I make substitutions but here goes. I basically made it as is except I didn't use sour cream and I only put a heaping tbsp of peanut butter. I could not get the peanut butter to blend into the soup. Maybe because it was natural? But it stayed in chunks so every so often you'd just get a mouthful of PB. I ended up adding a can of coconut milk because I just didn't like the flavor of it, which helped quite a bit but still not my favorite soup.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2014
I was planning on having to modify this a lot based on the reviews, but it turned out perfect with the recipe as written. I mixed the wet ingredients (plus cinnamon) then gradually added the flour (kneading by hand) until I got a thick dough and the stickiness was gone. It ended up needing 2.5 cups. The dogs loved them (although they are not fussy at all). The only thing is I only cooked for 25 minutes as they were getting very golden. They aren't rock solid but they are hard enough. Thanks!

Magic Cookie Bars from EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2014
These are delicious. The BEST squares ever. The only thing I do differently is I layer the coconut/walnuts and chocolate chips and then I pour the can of sweetened condensed milk on top.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2014
As per other reviewers suggestions, I cut back the amount of butter to 1/4 cup, and I added some Feta along with mozzarella. I found it reminded me too much of quiche which I'm not crazy about (It's that same spongy texture). My mom liked it, but she loves quiche.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
Way too spicy. I even tried mixing it with some sour-cream to take away some of the heat, but it didn't really work. We ate it but would not make this again.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
Delicious. I mashed the bananas and reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
These pancakes were fluffy and delicious. Mind you, I'm used to the 'just add water' Aunt Jemima pancakes. The only thing I did was add a tsp of vanilla. Best pancakes I've had. Thanks for the recipe!

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
I make these exactly as the recipe calls for, except I often use almonds and cashews as well. As long as you stir them frequently, they shouldn't stick together. I also find they are usually ready after 40 minutes. Highly addictive!

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
I didn't follow this recipe exactly, but it was a great guideline for quick and easy salmon cakes. I modified it by adding mashed potatoes (I boiled 2 and mashed with butter), and used chives instead of onion. I made patties and rolled them in italian bread crumbs, then baked them at 350 for 40 minutes, flipping at half time. We enjoyed these very much.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
We didn't like this at all. The cream cheese made it taste kind of sour and it took over 10 minutes of constant stirring to get rid of all the clumps. We won't be making this again.

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
This soup is good, and everyone who tries it LOVES it. I put it in the blender, as it looked very unappealing before it was blended. I personally find it a bit rich and sweet, and although it tastes very nice, I can only handle a small cup of it.

Carrot Chile and Cilantro Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
I love this soup. I make it all the time, but I use 3 potatoes in order to make it a bit thicker once blended and I prefer chicken broth. It's very simple, but delicious.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
These were quite good and so quick and easy! The texture was great, light and airy but more dense than a cupcake. As per the instructions, I just mixed the pumpkin (2 cups), spices and dry cake mix. The batter was thick but easily scooped with a spoon. I sprinkled with brown sugar before baking and ate them with butter. We all enjoyed them but I will cut back on the nutmeg and cloves next time.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
My family and I didn't really care for these (we LOVE pretzelmaker). I'm not sure if I did something wrong, as everything seemed to be going well, and I followed the recipe as stated except I used 4 cups of flour instead of five. My dough was nice and pliable, and rose very well. The pretzels were easy to roll out. The problem was that the bottoms burned before they seemed cooked. The pretzels ended up quite gooey in the middle, but burnt on the outside. I tried lowering the oven temp to 400 and raising the rack, but it didn't help. They still tasted okay once slathered in butter and salt, but I won't be making these again.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
This tasted great and my family all loved it, but it was a bit too buttery/greasy and the potatoes were a little firm...I did use a larger home-style cut hashbrown and cooked it for one hour to compensate, but it still wasn't enough time. Next time I will try the smaller hashbrowns and cut the butter back a bit.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
These cookies were really good. I made sure to flatten the cookies out with the bottom of a glass (after rolling and dipping in sugar) as some reviewers said they required this. The recipe made almost 5 dozen, and our family devoured every last one of them by the end of the day...need I say more?

Waffles I

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I thought I would try a home-made waffle recipe, however, I have to say, my family and I all prefer the waffle recipe on the side of the Bisquick box. Thanks anyway!

The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I made this chili twice. The first time I followed instructions as written except I only used one can of chili peppers. The result was almost inedible due to how spicy it was. I assume there must be a lot of variation in the spice level of different chili powders and canned products. The second time I omitted the canned chili peppers altogether, and reduced the chili powder to approximately 2-3 tbsp. It was perfectly spicy and delicious.

Liege Belgian Waffles with Pearl Sugar

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
These were delicious and exactly how I was hoping they would turn out. Very soft and dense on the inside, with a crunchy sugary exterior. I used a large crystal turbinado sugar and it worked perfectly (I mixed one cup into the dough and then sprinkled the rest evenly on top before pressing the iron down). They were very buttery but it made clean-up a breeze since the crystalized sugar on the waffle iron just slid right off. So much better than a regular waffle, and great to eat just as-is. I also froze some and reheated in the oven and they may have even been better!
