Cornbread Muffins I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
I really liked these muffins. I used canned creamed corn (3/4 c.) instead of corn kernals and bumped up the cornmeal to a full cup to make up for the liquid in the creamed corn. They turned out really well - very moist and full of flavor!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
Just made these this morning and they were delicious! I only made one alteration - I added about 3/4 c. more flour, because I didn't knead by hand (I used my mixer with the dough hook). It needed a little more flour to "climb the hook" and clean the bowl. The balance of butter, sugar, and cinnamon in the filling was great - they weren't too sweet. The flavor was excellent! On the recommendation of others, I did put a rimmed baking sheet under my muffin tin, to catch drips. Oops, I lied - I made two alterations; I used butter instead of margarine.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I made a few changes: no parsley (I didn't have any, so the sauce probably would have been even better with it); subbed 1 tsp. garlic powder for the clove of garlic (I didn't have any fresh garlic); added 1 tbsp. sugar. I sauteed the onions in a stock pot, then added all the ingredients right into the pot and used an immersion blender. It could not have been easier, and the sauce was delicious!

Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
This was an excellent starting point for me. I made changes only because I used ingredients I had on hand, and adjusted for my family's taste. I made the following changes: I omitted the celery and the parsley (because I didn't have any of either), and subbed a can of black beans for the cannellini beans (again, because I didn't have any). I doubled the spices, because we like our chili pretty spicy. I rated it 4 stars only because even with doubling the spices, it still wasn't that spicy, so I'd imagine the original would be a bit bland. I threw it together before church this morning and am sitting in front of a football game eating it now. It couldn't be easier!
