Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2015
This was pretty good and the kids liked it enough. The biggest issue was that there was not enough sauce for 4 breasts and it thickened up so fast (like in 30 seconds) that the chicken wasn't even cooked, I had to add a couple of tablespoons of water to thin it out because it was sticking to the pan so badly, and then I covered it to allow the chicken to cook. It was still a very sticky coating, even with the extra water added. I might try reduced sodium soy sauce next time because it was very salty (but tasty!)

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2015
I made these as is except I added oregano as well. They weren't bad, but they definitely were not nearly as good as any Greek restaurant that I've been to. They weren't as flavorful And I don't like the idea of cooking them covered. I did it, but I uncovered them during cooking because they were starting to steam, and I wanted them more roasted. I'll be looking for a different greek potato recipe.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2015
This is AMAZING salsa. I can eat the entire bowl in one sitting. I make it all the time and I always eat it with lime Tostitos. I only use 2 tomatoes so it's extra mango-ey and I use the juice from the entire lime (never measured it). Otherwise don't mess around with a great thing! It's a pot luck favorite and you'd be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't love this (provided they like mangoes and tomatoes of course:).

Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2015
Everyone in my family enjoyed these, however, the kids don't like big chunks of fruit in their muffins, so I decided to put the cup of diced rhubarb into the food processor, which, when blended only amounted to about a half a cup, which, when cooked, gave absolutely zero rhubarb flavor. The muffins had a great texture and the sugary topping was delicious. I'd like to add more rhubarb next time but not sure if that will affect how it turns out.

Lemon Asparagus Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2015
I rated it as 3 stars because my boyfriend LOVED this recipe but I thought it was so-so and my daughter did not like it at all. I broiled the asparagus with a bit of olive oil, sliced lemon, and garlic, otherwise I followed the recipe. I found it sour and bland. I should have just eaten the asparagus as is (very tasty) and had some pasta with butter and cheese on the side. But as I said, BF loved it and wants me to make it again. We shall see...

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
I made these tonight, and I have to say that they taste really good. Nice and crispy but soft in the middle. The only reason I deducted one star was because the first batch burned after 8 minutes and were hard as rocks. So I decreased the cooking time to 6 minutes, but then the centers totally deflated once out of the oven. I did roll out the dough and use cookie cutters and this may have been the problem. Perhaps they would have looked nicer if I'd just rolled them into balls.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2014
These were amazing. I sprinkled the chocolate chips on top so it wouldn't interfere with the toothpick check (I usually overbake brownies). Finally a recipe that didn't turn out cakey or dry. These were so rich and so fudgy. To die for!

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2014
This was okay. I made it as is, but I think I expected it to be crispy since it was pan-fried, but it wasn't. I think there was just way too much cheese for my liking. I think I would try to make these again but maybe with just a bit of parmesan.

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.

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.
