San Francisco Style Bagels

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
This recipe is ok. I found another recipe that recommended broiling them for 2 min per side before boiling. It makes a huge difference in the quality of the bagel. The crust that is formed during broiling helps it hold up when boiling. I tried it both ways. Though both are edible, the one that was broiled first was much better!!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
All I can say is WOW! I have tried so many taco seasoning recipes. They have all fallen short in one way or another. But not this one. It is perfect. My husband didn't even realize it wasn't the package....he has always known in the past. I was curious how much to use per pound. Fortunately, another reviewer had already figured that out for me....3 tbl per pound and 2/3 cup water per pound. I did add a little flour (I used whole wheat) when cooking to thicken up a little. It was perfect!! No sugar! No chemicals! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Pecan Sandies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
I HAVE ALWAYS HATED PECAN SANDIES!! I made these for my mom because it has always been her favorite cookie. OH MY GOSH!! I could not stop eating them!! They were delicious. My parents raved about them. They were the best they had eaten. I think if you can get me to eat these, and I don't even like pecans, then you have done something amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

Brown Rice Hot Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
We had mixed reviews in our house. Personally I thought it was pretty good. It does have a stuffing flavor to it. I did only use 1 cup celery and its taste was not over powering at all.

Wonderful Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
The texture of these waffles is great! I followed the directions exactly as written. They were nice and fluffy and moist. The taste is lacking a little though. I don't normally eat syrup on my waffles, but I did feel I needed it with these. I made another batch and added blueberries. Those turned out pretty well too. Thanks for the recipe!

Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This was my first time making a quiche and it turned out pretty well. I didn't have Miracle Whip on hand so I had to use reg mayo. Other than that I followed the directions exactly and we all enjoyed it. I have one child that will not eat eggs, but she ate every bite of this. Thanks for the recipe!

Garlic Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
I liked this. I love spinach and garlic so this was a dish that was perfect for me. Its simple and delicious. I gave it 4 stars because it wasn't one of those things that I was WOW'd by, but it was definitely a tasty side dish.

Jenny's Grilled Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
This was pretty good. I think it may have been better if I had used a better season salt. It wasn't one of those "wow this is delicious" dinners. But it wasn't too bad. I will try to make it again with a different season salt and see how it turns out. All in all, it is a healthy dinner that tastes good.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
It is probably just personal taste but we did not care for this. Initailly, I used chicken broth to cook it in and it tasted great. So I was really excited to add in all the other ingredients and see how much better it would be. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. Even though we do NOT eat bland food EVER, we felt like this was better with just the broth. Maybe it would have been better if the other ingredients had cooked in it for a few minutes. The taste of the dish was just not our thing.

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
This was just ok to me. Only one of my four children liked it and my husband wasn't thrilled either. It was too bland for us. I follwed the directions as written. It is definitely missing something.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
This is delicious. I made it exactly as stated. It was a little watery at first, but I threw it in the food processor and it came out perfect! The whole family loves it. They all said it was much better than the jar stuff. I have even been using it to replace oil in the bran muffin recipe I got off this site! YUM! Thanks for the great recipe!

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
We are really enjoy these. I have made them about 4 times now. I gave them 4 stars because it wasn't one of those things that I thought WOW! That's delicious when I took a bite. BUT still they are pretty good. My only problem is that I would like them to be a little more moist (even when I made the recipe with oil). I don't know if that is possible with bran muffins, but I will keep trying. I decided to start using applesauce instead of oil, but the slight dryness is there no matter what. I will continue to play with it to make it perfect for us. As of right now it is still pretty darn good! All my kids happily eat them in place of the sugary cereal that I know longer allow them to eat...that is all that matters!! :-)

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
It was easier than I thought! I used a bag of Dove milk chocolate. I didnt' use shortening. I turned off heat to melt the chocolate since it was a small amount. I heated 2/3 of the bag of chocolate until melted. Then I put in the other 1/3 to cool it down. The stawberries came out perfectly!! I was so nervous to make these, but it was easy and DELICIOUS! I still had some chocolate left over so I dipped some pretzel sticks I had on hand.....they were delicous too!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Wow! I loved this!! I did only one thing not listed in this recipe....I cut the chicken before breading. Outside of that I followed to the letter and it was amazing!! It tasted so authentic to me. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
YUM!!! This was so delicious. My family raved about it and begged me to make it once a week. I added a little corn starch to my chicken before frying just because of other reviews. That is the ONLY change. For the hot sauce I did use the siriachi (I forget how to spell it) or rooster sauce as some call it. I do believe that made a big difference in the taste. I don't think regular hot sauce would be as good. We had very sweet, very sticky, very spicy, and VERY delicious chicken. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
As written it is a little thick, but still tastes delicious. When follwing some of the suggestions (adding sauted veggies, lessening flour to 1/2 cup, and milk instead of cream) it is absolutely delicious....definitely 5 stars with the changes! Update: I have made this many times by now. My husband prefers it comepletely without the cream....just chicken broth. He begs me to make it that way and takes it for lunch all week. This is a versatile and delicious recipe.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
These are ok. I have made them twice. The first time I follwed the recipe exactly and my husband loved them with the exception of the worcestershire sauce(He doens't like that stuff). He prefered the inside because it was a little drier. The next time I only used one can of soup and mixed some of it in with the meat. I also added some seasoning because I thought the first time was a little bland. So it definitely would be if I left out the Worcestershire sauce. Everyone liked it....my kids loved it much more the second time....as did I. My husband liked the taste better, but still prefered it drier like the first time. So I guess it is all a matter of opinion. Oh, you do only need one can of soup...2 is definitely too much. If you don't mind the peeling, buy diced tomatoes. I add a lot more cheese, because everybody loves more cheese.

Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
This was ok. I followed directions exactly. I liked it, but most of my family didn't like it very much. Guess it is all a matter of opinoin.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
I was looking for a creamy pesto sauce and this was perfect!! I didn't and wouldn't change a thing! I used an Emeril Lagasse recipe for pesto (Pesto alla Genovese). One of my sons HATES pesto, but I had him try this and he devoured it. My husband is kind of so-so when it comes to pesto. He also loved it and had seconds! We will definitely be having this again! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
