The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
these were great! i haven't made sugar cookies since high school so i was a little nervous but this recipe was easy and delicious. i did make a few changes. i cut the recipe in half and increased the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and the vanilla to 1T. i found the dough easier to roll out at room temp. cutting the recipe in half still yielded about 55 cookies (about 3 1/2 in tall baby bottles and small duck shapes). will definitely be using again!

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
delicious!!! i loved this recipe, but as a warning to others it is on the salty side, but i prefer that so if you're sensitive to salty tasting foods, this might not be for you or look for low sodium ingredients. that having said, i brushed my chix with the basting sauce, then cooked about 5 strips of bacon and then cooked my chix in the drippings for about 10min. since i already put some of the basting sauce on the chix i only used about 1/8 c. more and mixed it together with about 1/4c ranch and then spooned the combined sauce over the chix and that was plenty for my 4 breasts. i added the remaining toppings and covered with foil and it was done in about 25 min. and also my sister made this recipe but in the crock pot like someone else suggested and she said next time she'll def make in the oven instead it didn't really look that great after being in the crock pot. i will definitely be making this again exactly how i did this time! the toppings make the chix! on bites where the topping had fallen off it was just okay so make sure you don't skimp on them!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
hands down the best red velvet recipe i've ever had!! i cut the serving size down to 12 just to make one pan but did increase the sugar about 1/4c more than what the decreased serving size brought it down to. these were so moist no pudding mix needed! the icing was also great and so easy to make. i tinted the icing pink for a great valentines dessert. next time i'll make all 30 servings!! ***edited 3/2/11 i just made these again and had to use canned cream cheese frosting because i was out of cream cheese and they are not nearly as good! the canned frosting is overwhelming the taste of the cupcake! if you have to use canned frosting i don't recommend cream cheese flavor maybe just vanilla. i won't ever use canned frosting on these again! i'm eating the rest of these without the tops so i can taste the actual cake part because these are sooo good!

Pumpkin Pie Spice II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
perfect measurements for a great spice! i increased servings to 10 and made enough to fill a baby food jar half-way. i did as someone else suggested and put mixed spice on a piece of paper to get it neatly inside the jar and it worked perfectly! thanks for saving me the $5 it cost to buy at the store!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
these are so good! i did as others suggested and used orange juice instead of water and used 1/2 brown 1/2 white sugar. however, my cookies didn't look anything near what is pictured. the molasses i used had almost exactly this same recipe on the label and said to sprinkle 2-3 drops of water on the cookies to get the crackled look...that did not work. in fact, i tried a lot of different things and couldn't get any to crackle. but the thing i did that made the cookies look they're best was after i slightly flattened, then i only dipped the tops in the sugar. the sugar was more visible on the cookies i did that with as opposed to putting the sugar on first, then flattening. i chilled my dough for about 2hrs but by the time i was doing the second pan the dough was very sticky, i tried putting cooking spray,then sugar on my hands and nothing helped so i started putting the dough back in the fridge between pans and that seemed to help some. these are soooo addicting! i thought everyone was exaggerating but i ate 1 cookie off every pan i made! and when my DH got home he couldn't stop eating them!!! can't wait to make these again!!

Boneless Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
these were awesome! the breading was so perfect, i've tried so many recipes and this one is by far the best. i'll be using this one forever! like everyone says definitely double the flour mix from the beginning. this was pretty time consuming but so worth it. i don't think the refrigerated step is necessary. i did do it for my first 8 pieces, then on the next ones i couldn't wait to see how they'd turn out so i just put one in the deep fryer right after coating it and it turned out just fine. in fact i liked it better than the ones i put in the fridge. i used franks hot sauce for half (i ran out) and louisiana wing sauce and franks on the other half and my DH thought those were much better. the sauces were very similar to applebees. we'll be experimenting with different sauces but no changes to the batter!!

Apple Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
this was really good. i've made this twice, the first time i omitted the oil and used about 1c. homemade applesauce (spiced slow cooker applesauce off this site) but didn't account for adjusting the sugar amount, also i didn't like the texture of the bread the first time, i felt it was due to omitting the oil completely, the bread was rubbery the first time around. so the second time i used 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil and about 3/4 c of the same applesauce, reduced the sugar to 1c brown and about 1/4 c white. and i could tell the oil made a difference even when i was mixing it wasn't so thick. i also sugared my pans instead of using flour and made a topping of brown sugar, ground cloves, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon and as far as the cooking time goes i'm not sure how anyone can make bread in 35 min but my loaves took 60-65 like all breads i've ever made!

Easy French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
these were great! very easy like the title says! i did toast my bread in the oven first for about 3 min to cut down any sogginess, which worked well. i also used one slice of cheese on bottom as well as top. i used an au jus packet that came free with the purchase of my roast beef (deli promotion) and added extra water and beef granules and added garlic powder and black pepper to the broth. i sauteed red peppers and onions in separate pans and made each sandwich to order. 1# of roast beef made 6 sandwiches. also cup up some jalapenos and set on the table for whoever wanted an extra kick! there were NO leftovers!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
this was great! i was a little scared to try it but i gave it a go and am so glad i did! the only thing i wish i would've done was use less soy sauce maybe a 1/4c. or even a little less, it was a little on the salty side. i did add about 1/4 c lemon juice to the marinade and baked them at 425 in foil packets for about 15 min. these were so good i can't wait to make them again!!!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
These were so awesome!!! i used milk instead of water and did add garlic powder, minced onion (didn't have onion powder), parsley and zatarain's creole seasoning (didn't have old bay and all my store had was a huge $8 container of it) to the mix as well, and increased the cheese. i took the advice of others and omitted the salt from the butter topping, but would add some next time just for my personal taste. i also halved the recipe and got 10 nice size biscuits, plenty for my family of 3. also when i removed from oven, poked several holes in tops with a toothpick so the butter topping could seep through. these are a new staple in my house! just for reference, i used jiffy baking mix. can't wait to make these again!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
yummy!! no such thing as too much brown sugar for these. after wrapping the bacon around the beef, i pressed all sides in brown sugar and put in a throw-away foil pan, let sit in fridge for several hours (or overnight) then before cooking, sprinkled them again with brown sugar (since the bottoms are sitting in the syrup, don't rotate them). cooked for about 45 min then put under the broiler (on low) for 5 min, flipped them over sprinkled with more sugar and cook that side another 5 min. also after flipping them that last time, i cut slits in the foil pan and let the grease drain out into my boiler pan.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
This was so so good!! i did make a few changes. I pre-cooked my chix earlier in the week (about 2 1/2 breasts). Instead of carrots/peas, I used 1 bag frozen mixed veggies and added 2 small potatoes and cooked in seasoned water (salt, lemon pepper, garlic & herb spice-i didn't have extra chx broth to spare!) Also added 1/2 t. fresh garlic when I cooked the onion in the butter. Also the oven was way too hot, next time will definitely only cook at 375. But still I can't wait til morning to eat it again! And the best thing about it is no condensed soups. I know a lot of people said they added but they are so bad for you, so it was great to not have to use any!

Yummy Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
this was really good, but i did make changes. definitely need to use 2 jars of sauce. like others suggested browned meat and added about 1 1/2 jars of sauce to meat and some italian seasoning and simmered about 10-15min. i also only used about 1/8 c. basil since it's kind of strong and i'm glad i did anymore and it would have been too overwhelming. and next time i think i would only use 1 ricotta and 1 cottage cheese, just a personal texture preference. i think the romano cheese is what made this recipe outstanding. and as always when i make lasagna, i was only able to get 2 layers in my 9x13 and even then it was overflowing, i put a piece of foil on rack beneath to catch the drippings

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
This was awesome! It was just as good, if not better than, our local bbq joint. BBQ sauce I used (and only ever use) was Sweet Baby Ray's. I made a few changes to the directions, I boiled my chicken for at least an hour to make it really tender and falls apart easily, while that was boiling, I put all ingredients in crock pot and let simmer while chix was cooking, and after I added chix, just let it cook on high for about 2 hrs and I felt it was long enough, flavors melded good. Next time I would probably just do on stove, I didn't feel it was necessary to do in crockpot, unless I won't be home and wanted to come home to a cooked meal.

Ooey Gooey Breakfast Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
delicious! i omitted the nuts, used instant fat free butterscotch pudding mix and i used stone ground whole wheat bread and you couldn't tell! i only cut my bread into 8 pieces (16 just seemed like they'd be so tiny) glad i did and sprinkled brown sugar and cinnamon in the bottom of a square 9x9 and it worked perfect. my bread didn't rise overnight and i took it out in the morning for about 1 1/2 hrs and still nothing so i just baked anyways and they still rose big and fluffy. when i took out of the oven i used a basting brush and brushed the ooey gooiness in the pan over the tops. like someone else complained they aren't ooey gooey after they cool but the flavor is still just as delicious! cant' wait to make again next weekend!

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
i don't personally like applesauce, i made this for my 2 year old, who absolutely gobbled it up! so i'm assuming it was 5 star taste! this was so easy, i just peeled and cored my apples (3lbs worth) and put them in the crockpot without further cutting because i was planning on using my food processor after cooking which worked out great! i didn't measure the water, i just put in enough so apples were floating (way more than what recipe called for) and added about 2 handfuls of brown sugar, 2 cap fulls of lemon juice and vanilla, generous amounts of ground cloves, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon to the crockpot before cooking. cooked on low about 6hrs, drained apples over a stock pot, put apples in the food processor and made apple cider with all that leftover spiced water by adding apple juice, orange juice, and apple peach passionfruit mixed juice i had on hand. it was awesome!! can't wait to make again! and will definitely do the extra water to make apple cider again!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
seriously awesome!!! i had doubts of trying yet another banana bread but this is my keeper!! i halved the recipe and still got 2 decent sized loaves out of it. i did increase the eggs to 2 (instead of 1 1/2) and used 4 bananas. the taste is superb! all the sour cream i had on hand was smart balance and it turned out fine. i dusted my pans with flour and put a topping of brown sugar and cinnamon on top of loaves. i also had my oven at 325 and my small loaf was done after 55min and my larger loaf more like 65-70. and here it is 6hrs after making and one whole loaf has already been eaten!! choose this recipe it is awesome!!

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
yum! i used orange marmalade and orange juice instead and doubled the dijon it was delicious! next time i would buy a better quality ham. and if i had whlole cloves i would have put them in the meat to better flavor it. since i was going to be gone while it cooked, i combined all ingredients in a bowl then poured over the ham in an oven bag in my roasting pan, put the lid on and baked at 275 for 4 hours, then when i got home took the lid off, opened the bag and basted it and cooked for about 30 more min without the lid. i also had put carrots in the bag with the ham just like i would for a roast and the were delicious! i'm so glad i did i would definitely recommend everyone does it!
