Bachelor Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
Like some other reviewers, I was not aware that there was an easier, more healthier way to make grilled cheese! I've been doing it on the stovetop for years. I don't think I will anymore. This recipe is a very good base-- I think I might try this with a slice of ham for a nice grilled ham and cheese sandwich. Thanks!

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
This recipe was amazing! I followed the advice of others and cut down to 1/4 cup of soy sauce. I also added a few squirts of honey. The results were fabulous! Tastes very good with brown rice and broccoli. This recipe is a keeper.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
I've made this recipe twice so far, and I think this roast truly is awesome! I'm not much of a gravy fan, so I followed the advice of others and used only one can of soup and half a can of water. Overall, the roast was scrumptious and made excellent leftovers. I can't wait to make this roast again. Thanks!

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
This recipe was very simple and easy to make. I added some potatoes, carrots, and onions to the bottom of the pot. Next time, I think I will omit the veggies from the roast as I thought they took away some of the flavor.

Beef Samosas

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2003
I love this recipe. The ground beef is what makes the samosa so delicious. Don’t let the long list of ingredients daunt you from making this; the meat mixture is pretty easy to make once you get everything together (helps if you measure out all the spices at least a day in advance). I like to put the beef in warmed tortillas and top it with a small sprinkling of grated cheese. Yum. As for the samosa, when I first made this, I baked the samosa in the oven at 400 degrees until the dough was golden (suggested by other reviewers). I also spread the dough with melted butter before popping the samosa into the oven. And I used spring roll wrappers. Since I try not to eat too many carbohydrates, I usually omit the potatoes when making the meat mixture. It tastes just as good, in my opinion.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2003
Though I wouldn’t declare these the best peanut butter cookies I’ve ever had, they are still quite good! I used natural peanut butter when making these cookies (natural peanut butter is healthier and tastier than commercial brand-name peanut butter, in my opinion). To ensure the cup of peanut butter wouldn’t stick in my measuring cup, I greased my cup with nonstick cooking spray. I refrigerated the dough for about thirty minutes prior to putting it in the oven. The cooler the dough is, the less sticky it will be. Make sure you only bake the cookies for a maximum of ten minutes.

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: May 10, 2003
Excellent! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe. I made this twice: once for Mother's Day and for a potluck. I was asked to make it again because it was that good! The first time, the cake didn't even last a day before getting gobbled up. When making this second recipe, I used a springform pan rather than a plain 8-inch pan like I did the first time. Much easier to get the cake out of the pan, but make sure the pan is securely set because raspberry juice will drip out onto the oven floor. And make sure you have enough cooking spray in the pan so that cake will be easy to remove. The first version I made did not have glaze, and we loved it regardless. The second version I made did have glaze. I didn't care much for the glaze; it was so sweet! I think this cake stands out on its own without it! Still, your mileage may vary. I used frozen natural raspberries. They work great. But make sure they're thawed before measuring them out. And be sure to drain the juice, too. Also, in both recipes, I followed the other reviewers' advice and doubled the recipe. It was very difficult to spread out the batter into the pan the first time. The second time, I added a few tablespoons of milk, and it made quite a difference! Don't worry if you don't have enough batter to spread out on top. The almonds will cover the cake nicely.

Oven Baked Herb Chicken

Reviewed: May 7, 2003
Since I didn't want my coating to be too paste-like, I softened the butter (if you melt it, the coating might become too runny). I used three large chicken breasts instead of six, which might have been a mistake as the flavor was really overwhelming. It was still very good; but the next time I make this, I'm definitely halving the recipe for the coating if I make three chicken breasts OR using six chicken breasts in total (it pays to follow the recipe exactly). However, other family members really loved this chicken and didn't think the flavor was too overpowering as I did. Overall, a quick and easy recipe. Thanks!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2003
Very good! I used about 5 medium-sized overripe bananas. I accidentally forgot to add the salt, but they still turned out well. I would also recommend baking the muffins for 20 minutes, tops, if you're making 12 muffins.

Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
The first time I baked this bread, it was quite good. I made it again today and decided to try some of the variations suggested by other reviewers: I added extra banana (the riper, the better), 1/2 cup of heavy cream, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. Cooked it for exactly an hour, and the result was even better the second time around. The bread had a mouthwatering aroma, which filled up our home.

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2003
Delicious cookies. I couldn't stop eating them, even as soon as they came out of the oven. I found that baking them for ONLY 10 minutes at 375 was sufficient enough, too.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2003
I had a bunch of very ripe bananas, so I decided to make these muffins. DELICIOUS! Following the suggestions of others, I used 1/3 cup of oil instead of butter. This made 12 generous-sized muffins. They melted in my mouth. Yum! And, for what it's worth, 1/8 cup equals 2 tablespoons!

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2002
This was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, and the results were great. The chicken was so tender that while carving it, some pieces fell apart. But it was so scrumptious! I also rubbed the chicken with olive oil before roasting. It resulted in a crispy brown skin, which was yummy!

Chocolate Mousse Cake IV

This cake is scrumptious! We loved it, especially the chocolate mousse! And an interesting thing... I found this recipe on this website. I went out and bought a cake pan, and THIS recipe was included with the pan!

Souvlaki

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2002
Very yummy! I marinated the pork overnight, and baked them in the oven, as another reviewer did. Delicious! Next time, I might try adding more lemon, though.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2002
My mother loves oatmeal raisin cookies, so I made these for her. We both LOVED them! Next time, I might omit the raisins because I love plain oatmeal cookies. Thanks for the recipe!

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2002
These were great! Initially, when I had some fresh from the oven, I thought they were too cake-like at first. But I let them cool for a few minutes, and then I couldn't stop eating them! Great cookies!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2002
These were delicious! I only made them on Wednesday, but there are only 2 left in the cookie jar today (two days later). I didn't have any nuts, so I just doubled the amount of chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips). They turned out GREAT! And, yes, I would also bake them at 350 and cool the dough a bit before baking. Otherwise, these cookies were awesome!

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2002
This was a great recipe! I followed it exactly, and my mother and I both thought that the hens were delicious. Pretty easy, considering that I'm not the most advanced cook. Thanks!
