Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Love this recipe! It's so quick & simple. I altered the recipe a bit...used 12 cups of water, but only 3 bullion cubes and I doubled up on the onion, carrots and celery, however I didn't measure anything, I just eyeballed it until it looked like enough. Turned out wonderful!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
This was my first time making a pulled pork but omg it turned out amazing. I had to alter the recipe a bit due to lack of ingredients, I used beef broth instead of chicken, didn't any of the vinegar, onion or garlic cloves (used a bit of powder instead). I also didn't have any brown sugar, lol! But its obvious you can work with what you have and still make it work. I'd say the two key elements are the broth & bbq sauce! I cannot wait to make something like this again! Just delicious!

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
This recipe is so quick & easy. I love biscuits and being able to whip them up in a snap is just wonderful. I don't add the cream of tartar, it's just something I never have in my pantry. I love adding various ingredients to them as well, like different cheeses! and they're great to go along with gravy!

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
This is my husbands favorite dessert, so I was terrified of messing it up! It turned out so good, even I liked it (and I'm not a coffee person). At first I attempted to make my own ladyfingers (won't be doing that again!). I found it amazing how the flavor just explodes when you combine the mascarpone & yolk mixture. I will mention you really have to soak the ladyfingers & use a strong coffee to get a strong flavor. I'll definitely make this again!

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
This definitely has potential. I used a low sodium soy sauce to cut back on the saltiness. My husband and I found this dish to be lacking something..I think it was because mozzarella isn't a very strong flavored cheese. Next time I may add in smoked gouda or something with a sharp flavor.

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
These are super easy to make. I used marshmallow fluff instead of marshmallows, and changed my proportions to 5cups fluff & 6 1/4 cups of cereal. I probably could have added more cereal, there seemed to be more fluff then cereal! :) I also thought about adding in some peanut butter when you melt the fluff...next time!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Normally I avoid making sugar cookies because they are so time consuming, but this recipe is perfect! No refrigerating the dough, or cutting out cookies & no need to decorate if you don't want to. I did what was recommended & only used teaspoonfuls of dough, I will say they do really expand nicely, but the teaspoon just gives you a bite-sized cookie. Next time I make these I'll make the rounds of dough a bit bigger.

Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
I'm not sure how I feel about this. I've made it twice now, and both times it's been yummy but I haven't found it to be my favorite breakfast item. I love how easy it is to throw together & it's great when you want something a bit different. I imagine I'll experiment with different items & see how they turn out. Definitely worth tasting though!

Tofu Peanut Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
Not bad Not bad at all. I used a schezwan sauce and chopped walnuts in substitution of the peanut sauce/peanut combination. I used a tablespoon of olive oil for frying the veggies & a tablespoon of olive oil for frying the tofu. I also didn't have fresh ginger; so I used 1/2 a teaspoon of ground and it still gave it a nice flavor. There are endless possibilities with this recipe as a base. I also really liked how the cornbread turned out as a batter on the tofu. It came out nice and golden brown.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
These didn't turn out too bad. I ended up using a red onion since that is all I had on hand; and it made the mix very watery. I also left out the fresh parsley. It took 3 cups of bread crumbs to get the mix to stick together (and I think that's because of the red onion) and even after then the first one mostly fell apart. I added spoons of cornmeal until it got to a consistency that fried nicely. I really liked the sauce; I didn't have any cucumber to add, and left the mayo out; added about 1/4tsp of garlic powder. It was a nice crisp flavor. The Falafel itself definitely had a traditional taste. I will try making these again for sure!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
These are certainly yummy cookies; I'm not sure they are 5 star cookies; but I am certainly addicted to them. I used 1 cup of butter instead of 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening (I don't really understand the point of that). I will definitely try out different spice combinations as well! I'd also like to mention I never ever ever add salt to my baking (unless it's bread or pie crust). I left it out for this recipe as well and good riddance!! (I am NOT a fan of salt and avoid it at all costs!)

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I don't know what to say about this except for the fact that I did not care for it. It wasn't very sauce like, the spice combo was just kinda 'meh' and i didn't find it very creamy. Overall it was bland.

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
I made this with high hopes - Even though the spices aren't Moroccan; My husband and I love Indian food. We were both disappointed with this recipe. We haven't quite figured out what it's lacking; but something is definitely missing. It has potential though!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
I don't think it matters if these are a clone of a cinnabon or not. The only thing that really matters is how super super yummy there are!

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I'll keep this one simple. OMG = Oh My Good! I honestly didn't think these were going to turn out, but man did they ever! I will absolutely be making these again; and I did not change a thing with the recipe! Although I did just realize that I didn't let them rise before I baked them. Oh well! They turned out big, soft and YUMMY anyways!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I gave these 5 stars because they are tasty, and they turned out fine. I've never had snickerdoodles before and thought they sounded interesting. These were far to boring for my personal taste.

Drew's World Famous Triple Rush Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Oh this is fantastic! I LOVE chocolate, so this was nice and sweet for me. Some whipped cream on top would be divine! Instead of microwaving it, I melted the chocolate, and then heated up the milk on my stovetop in a small sauce pan. This is what I did: 1 Cup semisweet chocolate chips, let those melt completely to a smooth consistency. Add 1 cup of milk, wisk until well combined. Add another cup of milk and again wisk your heart you. The more you wisk it, the better it mixes together and the creamier it gets. I used 1.5 cups of milk in total. After it was all combined I added 1tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of chili powder. Heat it up to your desired temperature and pour into a mug! I've tried it the microwave version first, and it was grainy as other people have complained. Doing it on the stovetop I had no graininess! Enjoy this fabulous recipe!
