Steak and Kale Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
This soup was ok. Not sure if I did something wrong, but it was rather tasteless. It's definitely going to need to be doc'ed up.

Newport Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Oh this chowder was so good! I'm from Maine, so no traditional chowder from my neck of the woods has celery and carrots in it like many of the recipes on here. Gah.... I subbed a few ingredients, as I only had bottled clam juice and canned chopped clams. I also only had light cream instead of half and half. But the consistancy was SO good! Thick, creamy and reminded me of canned clam chowder but without the nasty canned soup taste, of course! Oh, and I used bacon grease in place of butter. A+

Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
I thought this recipe was great, and people loved it! I followed it the first time to a 'T', and it came out wonderfully! No separated layers or overpowering peppermint flavor. I agree the key is to use the higher-quality chocolates, such as Ghirardelli, which I used for both the semisweet and white. Also be sure to stir often when melting, making sure not to overheat the chocolate, and take it right off the heat as soon as it's melted. I used candy canes, too. My only complaint would be that after using the white chocolate as the top layer, It was virtually impossible to spread it evenly, and I ended up with dark and white swirls. It still looked pretty and it tasted fantastic. I'm trying something a little different with a second batch now, whereas I sprinkled crushed candy canes on the parchment paper first, poured the white chocolate over them for the bottom layer, and then drizzled the melted semisweet chocolate on top, finishing with more crushed candy canes. I think either way it will be delicious.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
This was super yummy! I left the store completely forgetting sour cream, but when I got home I found some vanilla low-fat yogurt and used that instead. It still didn't come out too sweet. It was super creamy and had a great corn flavor. I think this would be great with ham! Will definately make again, but use the sour cream like the original recipe is written as.

Pumpkin Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This is super yummy! Only thing I did differently was use skim milk because I was out of canned and I also added a sprinkling of nutmeg. Tasted like a pumpkin pie, but the texture was fluffier and lighter. Very good, but I'll probably cut back on the sugar next time.

Never Bitter Lemonade

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
So good! Did the recipe exactly as instructed and it was amazing! Not too sweet or tart and refreshing! I do want to try it with Stevia though for a lower calorie drink.

Chip Chicken Lollipops

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
These were pretty good, but I seem to agree with others when I say they were a little bland. I even seasoned the egg/milk mixture with salt, pepper and onion powder first and used sour cream and onion chips. I also think the oven maybe could be higher, because the chips weren't really that crispy. Had I cooked them longer, I would have overcooked the chicken as the tenders I used were juicy and perfect!

Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
These were sooooo delicious! I did sift the 2 cups of flour, used reduced-fat sharp cheddar, omitted the cayenne and used 1 tsp. of garlic powder. After baking I brushed the tops with melted butter and an additional sprinkling of garlic and salt to the top. Light, fluffy-my first success at homemade biscuits. TO DIE FOR!!

Impossible Buttermilk Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Really really good flavor! But next time I will probably cut the sugar by 1/2 cup. Waaaay too sweet.

Buttermilk Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
These were absolutely yummy and tender! I just don't understand why they turned out so thin. Would have loved a thick, fluffy pancake. Not sure what I did wrong.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This was a really yummy meatloaf and popular with my kids due to the sweetness. I did use turkey burger, as we don't buy hamburger often, and subbed crushed Wheat Chex for the saltines to sneak in a little fiber. Really great!

Kielbasa and Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
I thought this was ok. It was a little too vinegar-y for my liking, but my husband and kids liked it. I served it with grilled leftover corn muffins and applesauce.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Not sure if it's the recipes or me, but I didn't find these cookies to be sweet enough! My husband came home and tried these and said 'did you put all the sugar you were supposed to in these?' I'll have to try these again and see if they come out differently. Other then that, great texture and good chocolate flavor. USE REAL BUTTER!!!

Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
These beans are just delicious!! I made them with leftover Easter ham. I was very happy to have read the recommendations regarding the brown sugar-I only added 2 tablespoons and this was plenty! I also added a big squirt of ketchup for acid to help soften the beans. Didn't add the cayenne and parsley either. These were so yummy!!

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This is a great basic peanut butter cookie recipe! My only change was that I am a huge fan of vanilla, and I added 2 teaspoons. I also agree with the 10 minutes of baking time. Chewy, soft cookies!! YUM!

Wicked Garlic Tofu Saute

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This recipe was only ok. I don't know how people rated it so high. I used even more oyster sauce then what was in the recipe, and it still lacked flavor. I ended up adding some chili garlic sauce to add some kick to it. I was suprised, because I LOVE tofu. Too bad...

Beans, Greens and Garlic Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
This was a very yummy soup--filling and comforting on this chilly, fall night. My only changes was that I didn't drain the beans because I like the thickness the liquid gives the soup. I also didn't have ditalini, so I broke up angelhair pasta. I always think beans can be a little tough, especially when they are canned, so I added a healthy squirt of ketchup to the water with the beans and pasta. Really good!

Pina Colada Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
These were very nice. I made them for the kids, so used vanilla instead of rum extract. Very moist, the kids liked them. My only critique is that they really should be called cupcakes...too much sugar and there's really no nutritional value-just yummyness!!

Pina Colada Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
This was soooo good! A huge hit at work-the plate was gone in less than 2 hours-and that was at 7 in the morning! I took the advice of others and used half the amount of rum and used pineapple juice as the other half. The flavor was GREAT, the cake was moist, just delicious!
