Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
I have been making this recipe for about 6 years and I absolutely love it. I've served it to many family members who rave every time. I now use ground chicken and brown rice and use diced tomatoes instead of whole ones. I also really never put in the worceshire sauce, I always forget but it doesn't make too much of a difference so I just leave it out. I add garlic and always add salt, pepper and garlic powder to the tomato soup to give it some extra flavor. Great served with mashed potatoes.

Rugelach

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
I have never had Rugelach before...actually I don't even know how to pronounce it but it's fantastic. I did change the recipe a little. I don't have a food processor so I used my kitchenaid mixer and a pastry cutter to make the dough. It took a little while but it worked. One thing I learned is that you really have to flour your surface and the rolling pin before you try to roll out the dough. It was hard for me to roll mine because the wedges stuck to the wax paper. I still have 3 more disks to roll out so I will know how to do it tonight. For my filling I used sugar-free apricot preservatives, sprinkled it with some brown sugar, then put about 1/4 of a cup of white sugar and 1/2 a tbsp of cinnamon. I added raisins to top it off. Baking them for 22 minutes was perfect. When I make the rest of mine tonight I think I will chop up the raisins so they fit better. Besides that I don't think I am going to change a thing. I wasn't sure how the dough would come out...it was light and flaky. My brother-in-law thought it was a french recipe because it was similar to a croissant. He was surprised I had made it from scratch. This recipe is awesome. It's a little time consuming but totally worth it in the end. Thanks for the recipe. **I brought these for dessert at Christmas dinner and my father couldn't believe I had made these, he was really shocked. He loved them. **

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
these cookies came out fantastic! I followed the recipe exactly only I used milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweeet chips. My husband loves them! He doesn't like chocolate chip cookies much but he was very surprised with these. I agree...5+ stars!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
My husband loved this recipe!! I changed it a bit. I didn't use the fennel seeds and did end up using 18 noodles instead of 12. I covered the lasagna with a layer of noodles and topped with some more meat sauce (since I had some left over) and some cheese and parm cheese. I also added spinach in with the layers. I will probably lessen the meat sauce next time as it was a lot but since I used a deep dish pan it was no problem. And I will probably double the ricotta cheese. I actually vaccuum sealed half of it in squares so I can have a quick dinner in the future. Thanks!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
Fantastic. My husband said these were delicious. I followed the recipe to a T except I added blueberries and chopped strawberries. These made so many that I froze them individually on a cookie sheet and then vacuum sealed them in packets of two. My husband just pops them in the microwave and has a quick breakfast before leaving for work. I think these will be a constant in our house.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2006
I didn't like this too much. I think I may have added way too much garlic. I love garlic but this was a kicker. It was seeping through my pores! May try again but not too sure.

Stuffed Jalapenos III

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2006
These came out really good. I used regular whipped cream cheese, mexican blend of grated cheese, two spoons of salsa, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I put it all in a ziploc bag and cut the corner off and pipped the filling in, as another user suggested. So easy! My husband cut the peppers wrong but I was still able to fill them without a problem. Next time I think I will try the pineapple cream cheese to see the difference and I will use a whole strip of bacon instead of half. My husband loved these, I loved them too but they were really hot for me. He even thought so and he's from mexico and has a stomach of steel. These are a must try!!

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2006
These were fantastic!! I also added garlic powder to them. I didn't use butter but dipped them in egg instead. They came out great and smelled devine. I mixed some honey mustard dressing using honey, mustard, paprika and parsley. Yum! The kids loved them and so did the adults.

Chicken Hurry

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2006
This recipe was very good and reminded me of a recipe my mom used to make. I changed this recipe a little. I used chicken legs instead of thighs. I doubled the sauce but kept the original amount of brown sugar and only used half the package of onion soup mix. I also layered the bottom of the pan with sliced onions. There was only enough sauce to put about a large spoonful over each piece of chicken. I want enough sauce to pour it over and cover the chicken as well as an inch or so in the bottom of the pan. So after spooning the sauce I added water to the bottom of the pan, atleast enough to cover the onions. It came out really good. My husband liked it but said it was a little too sweet so next time I think I will omit the brown sugar all together. I also seasoned the chicken with pepper and garlic powder before putting sauce on it. This was very easy so I will make it again.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
Fantastic!! I love these cookies. This is the recipe I have been waiting for. I changed it just a little bit according to other reviewers suggestions. I used 1 cup butter and omitted the butter shortening. I melted the butter halfway. I did decide to use the cloves and added some nutmeg as well. I also used golden raisins the first time and big juicy organic raisins the second time...wonderful! My husband loves them and by the end of the night almost half were gone. These make about 50 cookies. Our favorite cookies are oatmeal raisin so I think this will be a weekly thing.

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
This was fantastic. The chicken came out so juicey and almost melts in your mouth. I love the sauce it was tangy and sweet, just perfect. I did change a few things. I used dijon mustard and organic honey, I didn't use basil. This was what I did. I sprinkled salt, pepper and garlic powder on both sides of the chicken, then poured half sauce over chicken and baked for 20 minutes. I then turned the chicken over and poured the remaining sauce over the chicken. I baked it for another 15 minutes. Fabulous, this is going to be a staple in my house. My husband loved it too. I served it with sauted spinach and garlic and conscious and lentils. This is a must try recipe.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
My family and I love this soup. I make it several times a month. It is super tasty and super healthy. I add a few more things to it though. I always add green pepper, chopped butternut squash, quartered new potatoes and sometimes turkey kielbasa. Mostly I leave it veggie, I found that the kielbasa makes it a lot more greasy and prefer it more healthy. I have also used Organic French Green Lentils and it is wonderful. Highly recommended. My husband loves it!

Easy Slow Cooker Meatballs

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
This was pretty good. I made it for my husband and he said it was delicious. He did say that the sauce was not that good. I noticed there was a lot of oil in it from the meat so this may be the reason. I baked my meatballs for about 25 minutes beforehand. I also put pieces of hard boiled egg and cheese in the center of the meatballs. This is something my husbands mother does in mexico. The cheese actually melted out but the egg was fine. I also added some turkey keilbasa in there and that was wonderful. It melted in your mouth. Would probably make again but need to find a better sauce.

Spanish Flan

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2005
Perfect flan!! I also made the Creamy Caramel Flan but that was way too thick for me. It was more like cheese cake then flan. This was more light and fluffy and exactly what I was looking for. Next time I will try to use low fat evaporated milk or low fat sweetened condensed milk and see if that takes anything away from it. It was great...very highly recommended if you want something similar to true mexican flan.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2005
This flan was pretty good. It was very thick as most reviews said, but still good. I think I will take the advice of others and half the amount of cheam cheese. My brother-in-law, who is from mexico said that it was great. He said that it doesn't taste like flan from mexico, it's different but better. He loved it!

Scallop Scampi

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
This is by far the best recipe I have ever gotten off this site and believe-you-me I have gotten alot! I did make some changes to the recipe per the reviews of other users. I used a half butter, half olive oil combo instead of margarine...I used scallions instead of the onions....I added shrimp, mushrooms and about 1 1/2 cups of shredded swiss cheese....I used parmesan cheese instead of romano and I only added a little parm during the cooking and added most of it right before serving while I was adding the swiss cheese. This came out delish, it was like being at the olive garden. The only thing that I will change next time is to double the sauce because with the added shrimp and mushrooms the sauce didn't seem too plentiful. I got rave reviews from my bro-in-law and sis and their only complaint was that they wanted more sauce. I served this with garlic bread and the remainder of white wine. Great! One more tip...add the cheese when it is warm, not boiling. So basically take it off the stove and let it set for maybe 5 minutes before adding the cheese. I figured this out the hard way. If you add the cheese when it's too hot it will clump up and stick to everything. The sauce doesn't get creamy that way. Only if you add it when it's warm.

Coconut Custard Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2004
The first time I baked this it didn't come out terrific but I decided to try it again and I made my own adjustments. The first time it tasted very eggy so I used 3 eggs this time. I also used 1 1/2 cups milk and 1/2 cup half and half, omitting 1/2 cup. It seemed that there was too much filling the first time I made it also. I also used only 1/2 cup of sugar instead of 3/4 cup. I added a little bit of cinnamon as well as the nutmeg. It came out great this time. My brother-in-law loves this pie.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2004
I got great reveiws on this recipe. I didn't change much about it, only a few things. I did add nutmeg, cinnamon and some vanilla to the apples as suggested by others. I found that I had to cover the pie after about 10 minutes of it being in the oven because the latice crust-work was burning due to the sugary syrup I had poured over it. Thankfully I caught it before it burned too much and covered it with aluminum foil. Besides that it came out great. Thanks for the recipe, this will be my new apple pie recipe.

Jambalaya With Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2003
This recipe was pretty good. I took the advice of other reviewers and added 1/2 cup extra chicken broth and also added some diced chicken and a can of sliced mushrooms. I thought that it was a little bland and am hoping to put some more flavor in it next time I make it. The overall rating was definitely good.
