Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2014
I have made this a few times, and the kids love it. I have tweaked it a little with which veggies we use, but the rest done as written. Love the peppery flavor (we use fresh ground) in the gravy, and with the right combination of veggies we are all happy.

Cheesy Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2014
My daughter makes potato pancakes every Sunday for me, and I had her try them this way last time. She followed the recipe almost exactly, using a splash of milk rather than a half cup, real bacon, and mxing the butter into the cakes instead of with the oil. They were amazing! Crispy, cheesy, full of flavor! Wonderful recipe, thanks.

Baron's Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
My children got about 4 cups of raspberries from a neighbor for helping in her yard, so I suggested making a cobbler. My daughter (14 years old) used this recipe and it came out AMAZING! It was my girl's first cobbler, and it was better than mine! Just don't tell her I said that.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
We don't often make cookies at all. Or any kind of sweet. But I really wanted cookies... these turned out amazing. Mykids were able to help make them, which is always good. The dough was a little wet looking so we added about another quarter cup flour and a bit more cocao powder. Used Andes mint pieces instead of chocolate chips. They are chewy, soft, and full of flavor. Thanks for the great recipe!

Szechuan Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
I read through the reviews and noticed most people left negative ones, which is usually when I look for the next recipe. For some reason I tried this one anyway, following a little bit of the advice given. I added a little extra red peppers,soy, garlic powder rather than cloves (all out), added cayenne and some Chinese five spice powder. Stir fried the beef in sesame oil, then aaded one small onion and the broccoli and green bell pepper. Turned out amazing. Kind of mellow flavor when you first take a bite, but by the time you swallow you can taste the spice and the subtle heat. The veggies were delicious, and my kids asked that I add this to rotation.

Shrimp Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
I've made this a few times. The family loves it, with the exception of my daughter not liking shrimp (She picks it out). Only thing I did differently was use different veggies once or twice according to our taste.

Roasted Red Pepper Spread

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
So after reading the one review here I added about 4-5 oz of cream cheese for thickness, and since I was out of garlic gloves I used granulated. But the reviews I got for the dip were raving. I used a mix of red and orange mini bell peppers and over roasted them, then blended it all together. Definitely will make again, most likely with a few tweaks here and there since I am incapable of following a recipe exactly.

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2014
Made these last minute (nine pm!) on Father's day. Aside from deflating a bit as they cooled, they were great. Creamy and flavorful. I added some vanilla and cinnamon to the batter and crust.

Bacon-and-Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
I have been making these for a while now. I lov that they are so versatile. Differences though: I put the bacon on a baker's rack on a cookie sheet and bake them at 400 for about ten minutes. Once cooled and blotted I line the muffin tins. We have topped the eggs with tomato, feta, cheddar, onion, pepperoncini, hashed browns, sausage... anything you can think of! The whole family loves them.

Make-Ahead PHILLY Spinach Phyllo Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
It has an amazing flavor, but doesn't hold together well. The phylly dough can't stand up to the filling so the whole thing kind of goes flat. Everyone loves it though

B.L.A.T. Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
We have BLTs at least once a month, and we all like it different. I don't like lettuce but I add cheese. My son has BLT with cheese, my daughter adds cheese and avocado, and my fiance goes without cheese but adds avocado. I can't believe I never thought to do it as a wrap instead of a sandwich. Thanks a bunch!

Cherry Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
Let me start by saying I CANNOT STAND the traditional mustard-brown sugar glaze, not to mention I am mildly allergic to pineapple. The first time I wanted to make this I couldn't find cherry preserves at the store. But I happened to pick up some cherry-raspberry-rhubarb preserves and decided to give it a shot. I nixed the corn syrup, as we are converting to a paleo type diet. Used apple cider vinegar since that is what we had. Also was out of nutmeg and ground cloves, so used a little ginger (just under 1/4 tsp). A lil extra cinnamon and we were good. It came out AMAZING! Tangy sweet, could definitely taste the cherry, with an aftertaste of cinnamon and spice. Will make this again for sure.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
Made this the other night, just for some variety. Used canola oil as we had no olive oil. And grated parmesan. It was awesome! My daughter, who hates cauliflower, was caught snitching food from her brother's plate! Everyone loved it. Definitely a keeper. Although I personally would have liked a little more seasoning, that is cook's issue, as I probably could have used a little more. Maybe some onion powder, or paprika.

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
My 14 year old made this last night as her first ever attempt at cinnamon rolls. She was unhappy with the result, but I loved it! They were chewy but not doughy, not heavy, lovely flavor. She wanted something lighter but for a first try these were perfect. We doubled the filling portion, and she thought the string cutting method was a pain. It was a little chilly in the house so I put the oven on low (200 degrees) and set them on top to rise. The glaze/icing didn't work out at all. Was thin as all get out. Still. This is a keeper, even for my perfectionist baker daughter.

Honey-Ginger Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
My family follows a more traditional diet (95% meat and veggies, as fresh as possible), so we need a lot of different ways to make any one item. We found this and though I am not fond of soy at all, tried it out. It was delicious! The first time we made it we followed the directions exaclty, with the exception of green onions. Left those out. Everyone loved it and the 5 year old wanted seconds. The next time or two we had it, I do not remember using OJ at all. It was still yummy. We marinated the fish for a little while, and reserved a little aside for last minute basting in the oven.

Grandma's Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2014
I used brown sugar in the cake rahte rthan white. I am allergic to pineapple so left that out. I added 1/4 tsp ginger. Maple syrup since I was out of vanilla. I didn't have applesauce but I had apples, so I oven roasted them and blended them and used 1/3c of that and 1/4 c oil. I also threw in blueberry flavored craisins. The glaze we cut 1/4c sugar out, made our own buttermilk, and again used maple syrup instead of vanilla. After all of that, it turned out AMAZING! It was a bit too sweet for my taste, but was still delicious. Next time I will make sure I have vanilla, cut more sugar, and hopefully have some nutmeg or allspice to help balance the sweetness. I was hoping for more of spice cake taste. And my daughter says more carrot than two cups. Still, this recipe is a keeper. Super moist and flavorful.

Artichoke Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
Made this last night, with a few adjustments. Added 4oz softened cream cheese to the mayo, and 1/4 cup milk. I also used boneless chicken thighs cut into chunks and omitted the mushrooms. Threw in some egg noodles and made it into a casserole. Wish I had used a little more garlic, but other than that, it was awesome! My family loved it too. Definitely going to make it again. Maybe add some spinach too next time.

Tilapia Florentine

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
Used this as a base recipe. I didn't have the flavored cream cheese, so used plain and splashed some lemon juice in. Also a little bit of onion powder. Breaded the fish with panko crumbs, then baked it. Warmed the sauce and spinach, then combined them. Put a lil of the sauce on top of the fish. The kids loved it, and are always happy when we have it.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
Tried this over the weekend for a party we had. It was a HUGE hit! The guests loved it, even my kids loved it, including the five year old! I think next time I will exchange the chicken for bacon, and maybe add a little liquid smoke for a little more depth. I baked it rather than used the crockpot, since I had other things going at the same time. The only issue I really had with it was the cream cheese kind of "curdled" so the dip had lil bits of it rather than everything mixing smoothly. I used and electric mixer so I am not sure what happened. Update: Made it again, with bacon. Still super yummy, although a little salty. Still a hit.
