Sloppy Joe Pockets

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
I only gave this four stars based upon the fact that I used my only sloppy joe sauce recipe. The idea to enclose sloppy joe mixture in biscuit is pretty good. With this idea and my sloppy joe sauce, this recipe was a hit in my house. In the future, I think I'll include a very light sprinkling of shredded cheddar to the pocket before sealing it.

Slow Cook Thai Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
This recipe just wasn't for our family. My husband and I each ate one small serving and threw the rest out. The flavor was bland and the texture had a gritty feel to it. It was an easy recipe to make, but I won't be doing that again.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
Excellent basic sloppy joe recipe. This has replaced the canned sauce once and for all in our household.

Healthier Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
I did make a few modifications to this recipe, so I could only give it four stars. I replaced the 2cups of water with chicken stock for more flavor. I also had to add more spices than the recipe called for to suit the tastes of my family. I also added some bell peppers to give the soup more veggies. In the future, I think I'll add black beans as well. Obviously, the modifications I made alter the caloric content somewhat, but I think it becomes a more complete meal that way. Overall, a good base to start with.

My Kid's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
I ended up using thin cut boneless chops for this recipe, and it still turned out great. I didn't have steak seasoning, so I used just plain old salt and pepper. I made two different versions-- both with Heineken but one with Famous Dave's Rich and Sassy BBQ sauce and one with Famous Dave's Apricot Bourbon BBQ sauce. My husband loved the ones made with with the apricot sauce best. This will definitely be in our dinner rotation from now on.

Cake Mix Cookies VII

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
This recipe is quite easy to make and the cookies are good, basic cookies. Like another reviewer mentioned, the dough is fairly oily, but that does bake off nicely. I used a store brand "moist" mix and got good results. I like the fact that this recipe is quite adaptable.

Red Velvet Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I made this recipe for a Christmas dessert, and it worked pretty well. The cake, itself, was pretty tasty. It was quite moist once it was baked. I did have issues with the batter being extremely thick, which meant that it didn't get mixed as well as it should have. I ended up with several white spots throughout my cake. My family thought it was purposeful, but it would have been better if the dough wasn't as thick.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
A really nice recipe that was extremely easy to make. I used this to top a red velvet cake. I only used 1 1/2 C of confectioners sugar because the frosting was getting really sweet. I think at the 1 C mark, the frosting would be the perfect flavor for topping cinnamon rolls.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Great recipe overall. I took some of the suggestions other reviewers suggested-- honey and brown sugar instead of molasses, 1/2 C of applesauce, and doubling cinnamon and ginger-- and they worked very well. I topped our cake with whipped cream, which made it a huge hit. This cake, obviously, has a heavy spice taste to it, so it's a little bit of an acquired taste, but my family seemed to like it well.

Buckeyes II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This recipe is a lot like my grandmother's recipe that I was trying to replicate. Instead of crushed graham crackers, I used rice krispies, which is what I recall my grandmother using in her recipe. These were a huge hit and didn't last long. This recipe doesn't make a large amount, so I plan on doubling it again for next year.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Excellent recipe overall. I took the suggestion of another reviewer and added a dash of cinnamon to the dough. Other than that, I made them as written, and they were terrific. I didn't get as many cookies as the recipe says, but I'm not sure that I rolled the dough out as thinly as I could have, so that probably accounts for the lower number of cookies. I would definitely recommend this recipe to others-- even beginners like me!

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
This was a simple, crowd-pleasing meal for my family of picky eaters. I didn't alter the recipe much. I simply added an extra package of gravy mix to give the hamburger mixture a tad more flavor.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
A nice oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe. I added more vanilla than called for and used creamy peanut butter, as that was what I had on hand. I will make these again.

Poke Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
I've made this recipe a few times and have always had rave reviews. To make things a bit healthier, I use light pie filling, sugar free gelatin, and fat free whipped topping. I have changed a few things-- more pie filling and a bit more whipped topping. Overall, though, a super recipe.

Salsa Chicken and Potato Packets

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
I made these tonight for supper and found them easy to make. Instead of using a whole breast, I diced the chicken up. I also added some shredded cheese. My husband really likes these and thought it was quite tasty. I, on the other hand, didn't like them as well. Anyone wanting to try these in the future should note that it took me longer than an hour to get the potato pieces soft.

Blonde Brownies III

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2003
My boyfriend made these for me instead of a cake for my birthday and we both liked them a lot. We used a 9x13 pan and I believe that a 15x11 would have been a bit better. We had to bake these for 30 minutes to get the center done but the rest of the brownie got a wee bit hard. The flavor was excellent though. We added a little vanilla to the dough.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2003
I thought this recipe was pretty good although several people commented that there was "too much cinnamon" in the apple mixture. Serving it with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping helped cut the cloying taste of the cinnamon. I also added more oatmeal than listed because the topping seemed really cake-like.

Reese's® Chewy Chocolate Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2003
This cookie has been a Christmas staple at our house for years. I've never had a problem actually making the cookies but I do run into a problem finding the peanut butter chips at certain times of the year. Try these cookies today. You won't be disappointed!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2003
I almost gave this recipe 3 stars (it would have been my first) because I was disappointed in how flat and thin my cookies turned out. I did enjoy the taste, however, and suspect that the flatness may be due to something I did. Does anyone have any ideas?

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2003
These fries were very good and pretty quick to make. I tripled the recipe (big eater at my house)and cut the potatoes fairly thin. I did not have to cook for 45 minutes as the recipe listed but for 30 minutes. Also, a good way to coat the potatoes evenly is to throw them into a freezer bag, add oil and seasoning, and shake the bag.
