Quick Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Can I just say WOW. I never knew fresh gnocchi could be this easy. Granted, dough is always a pain to work with, but this was very simple and took no time at all. I recommend being heavy handed with seasonings and adding seasoning salt, garlic powder, rosemary and Italian seasoning to the dough. As suggested by others, I would add some Romano next time myself. And I would double this recipe if feeding another person, seeing as I ate the whole batch myself no problem! They were delicious with a bottled Alfredo sauce! Bon appetit!

Taco Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
I used leftover rice (already cooked), threw in some cooked ground beef, omitted the olives, cut the taco seasoning down a bit and VOILA! Easy, quick, delicious Taco Rice! Yum!

Anna's Custard Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
I thought this was good. It did, however, take forEVER to set and I ended up baking it for about an hour!! I used a graham cracker crust. We had it on Thanksgiving and everyone seemed to enjoy it as a nice change from the usual. My sister said it tasted like quiche and that she would have a leftover piece for breakfast the next morning! :-P

Chicken Breasts with Lime Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
This was delicious! I used crushed Ritz crackers in lieu of bread crumbs and waaaaay less butter (actually, margarine) than called for, and it came out perfect! Just tangy enough--a nice, light citrus flavor. Mmmm!

Ham Hash With Sweet Potatoes & Thyme

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2005
This is delicious. I had to omit the sweet potatoes, as I was out, and therefore cut down the ham to about half a pound, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Very easy and doesn't take long at all. I also put this in a tortilla with some shredded cheese and voila---you have a tasty breakfast burrito! I will be making this again.

Egg and Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
Very good. Quick and easy. I too left out the butter and it wasn't missed. Also, I skipped the refrigerating overnight part. These are quite rich, but tasty.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2005
I love this recipe. I did these as drop cookies because I wanted to ensure that they were soft and dense. They came out perfectly! They have just the right ratio of peanut butter to butter flavor in my opinion. Not too overwhelming. Great cookies!

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
Now, I know I am no Betty Crocker, but I followed this recipe to a tee except for decreasing the chocolate a bit, and the first batch came out super flat and didn't have much flavor. So I added more flour, more sugar and more chocolate chips and the rest of them were OKAYYY but nothing to rave about. These make for a very flat cookie, nothing like the picture, and they lack the chewiness I was looking for. My neighbor described them as "light, kinda airy, different"(but had no problem downing them anyway). I will continue to search for the perfect chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe...

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
Mmmm, they are great but what a MESS to make. Time consuming too. My back hurt by the end of the process... I also added mozzarella to the mix and some mayo. I seasoned my flour with some cayenne and garlic powder and nonsalt seasoning, and mixed an egg in with the milk. Finally, I used Italian bread crumbs. They were awesome. Very addicting, but thankfully, due to the pain in the rump these were (literally), I won't have to worry about eating these too often. Worth a try if you have the time and patience and an abundance of peppers to use up! :)

Jalapeno Poppers I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
These are great! I added some mozzarella to the mix and dredged the peppers in flour mixed with cayenne, paprika, thyme, and garlic powder before re-dipping them in the egg, and then Italian breadcrumbs (which I used in lieu of the corn flakes). I baked them in a muffin tin, 3 to a cup, and that helped hold them together and keep the cheese in. Halfway through baking I sprayed them with Pam which helped to brown. They were very comparable to the deep fried version and I had to keep myself from eating the whole batch! They are VERY messy and TIME CONSUMING to make, however, so they will not be a regular, but as a special treat they are nice...

Julia's Easy Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
I think this dish is exactly what it claims to be--"an easy, one dish meal". I found it to be very tasty, not bland at all. In fact I was worried it would be too salty due to the onion soup, but it was perfect. I didn't have potatoes, so omitted those, but added some frozen broccoli for the last 15 minutes of cook time. I only used 2 chicken breasts and they were done in 3-1/2 hours on low. Perfect--tender and juicy. Ate it over white rice and it was great. I would make this again.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
These were very good. And very easy. Like the no baking factor! I used crunchy peanut butter, margarine instead of butter, and milk chocolate chips (more than called for). Came out very nice.

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2005
The mayo DOES make the chicken come out extremely moist and juicy! Can add whatever spices you like. I cooked the chicken for 25 minutes at 400 degrees as per another review (I used boneless, skinless breasts) and it came out great!

Banana Pineapple Delight

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2005
Yum! My custard turned out fine. I never stopped stirring and found the texture to be quite smooth. The combination of flavors is excellent. I would make this for a potluck type of party; i anticipate it would be well received.

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2005
Good recipe. LOVE the breading on the chicken! I agree with others that you probably only need one egg to coat and less bread crumbs. Overall, very tasty dish.

Bobbie's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2005
Wow! These cookies are easy and delicious, and I never have luck with baking! As it were, I forgot the oats in my first batch, and wondered why they weren't firming up, when my roommate pointed out that they didn't LOOK like oatmeal cookies...LOL In addition, I noticed the oven was at 250!!! Despite these minor setbacks, after adding the oats and upping the oven temp, the cookies came out beautifully and were gobbled up in no time. This recipe is a keeper!

Moussaka

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2005
Better than my local restaurant!!! I also added potato slices and used Chinese Five Spice (which contains cinnamon and nutmeg). The meat sauce is EXCELLENT. It was a bit time consuming, but I felt like a real "chef" while preparing it and the end result was wonderful. Even better reheated the next day! I will make this again and again...

Shrimp with Lobster Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2005
Not bad. Didn't use as much oil as called for and subbed ground beef for the pork. Omitted the salt, as soy sauce has enough! Also added some frozen veggies. Not a very strong flavor, but something kept me going back for more...

Tomato and Rosemary Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
Not bad. Something gave it a slight bitter flavor though, perhaps too much rosemary? I might make this again in a pinch, as it is healthy and the ingredients are commonly on hand.
