Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
These are definitely delicious, glad to add this to our "keeper" recipes. I knew I could add mashed bananas to pancakes, my son has done it before. However I wasn't sure on the amount of banana. I found this recipe, and funnily enough the base pancake part of the recipe is the exact same recipe as my old faithful recipe that I use from my cookbook. So one change I knew to make, which I will share here is, if you use fat free milk you need to cut back on the milk in order to achieve perfect fluffy pancakes. I doubled the recipe, so I used ONLY 1 1/2 cups of milk. Yummy with butter and syrup. But would be great with just butter.

Fruit Pizza I

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
This recipe was delicious. We made no changes and it turned out perfectly. It was simple to make, my 3 young children (5, 3.5, 23mths) helped with all the steps (except for cutting the fruit and that is because we were in a hurry). The leftovers kept well in the refrigerator over night and it tasted just as good. We used strawberries, bananas and grapes. Highly recommended.

Ham N Egg Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
This was quite easy to make and pretty tasty. My husband and I are agreeing that it is a bit bland as is, but just not sure how to spice it up a bit yet. I don't have a pizza pan so I used a cookie sheet, same as I do for a regular pizza. I used two packs of crescent rolls, 6 eggs, 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 tsp pepper. We thought 2 cups of ham was a little much even for our double recipe. Unfortunately our store didn't have shredded hash brown potatoes so I had to use southern style. The crust got a little dark even after 25 min, so I have decided next time I will try only cooking the dough at the beginning for a couple of minutes. Other than that I ate a few pieces, so it was pretty good.

Tender Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This is a great recipe, simple, quick and yummy. However, it is a bit bland. My son is allergic to milk, so he can't have the parmesan. When he made it he just used the bread crumbs and other spices. It was delicious. So I tried other spices this time and this is what we came up with. 18 tsp pepper 1/4 tsp garlic 1/4 tsp paprika 1/2 tsp chili powder Everything else stayed the same. Yum

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
This recipe is awesome, we use it all the time. The only substitution I make is to use minced garlic that I cook up with the ground beef instead of onion powder. And that is because I usually have minced onion in the house but not onion powder.

Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I made this after reading the hints/tips from other commenters. I was really looking for the "cake" part of the strawberry shortcake to go with my frozen strawberries, ice cream and cool whip. This recipe looked good and it was. While I don't know exactly what the original would have been like, I decided to take the advice of others to decrease the amount of baking powder (2 tsp instead of 4 tsp) and I doubled the sugar in the cake/biscuit part. I made individual biscuits in a 9x9 pan, baked for 15 minutes. After they cooled for 5 minutes I layered half the biscuit, frozen sweetened strawberries, cool whip, vanilla ice cream, and strawberries. I had forgotten to add the other half biscuit so I broke it up and put it around the side of the bowl. These were delicious. I worry about how they would have tasted with the original recipe so I only gave it 4 stars.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
We were always making the no-bake cookies that have the cocoa, but I knew I had seen them without cocoa. We searched for the recipe and found these. We are so thankful, they are delicious. We actually substitute margarine for the butter and rice milk for the milk because my son is allergic to dairy. He is also allergic to the chocolate which is why we desperately wanted to find a recipe like this one. They are sweeter than the no bake cookies I make with cocoa, and I am not sure if the substitutions have anything to do with that or not. However, we still enjoy them and they are simple to make.

Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I have always liked Broccoli-Cauliflower salad when I attended fellowship meals and such, but I never took the time to find a recipe. A few weeks ago I decided to look and I found this one. It is delicious. My family loves it and it is so easy to make. I substituted lemon juice for the vinegar because I had no way of getting any white wine vinegar in our small rural town. I also prefer to mix everything together instead of layering it. And this second time around I doubled the veges, cheese and bacon but left the amounts of dressing ingredients the same. The recipe was much better with less dressing (and I had wasted some last time). I also leave out the optional eggs. Mainly because I have never ever had a broccoli-cauliflower salad with eggs and it didn't sound appetizing. I still give this 5 stars though.

Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
This is delicious. No changes needed at all. My daughter wasn't going to eat it, then she went back for more. And hubby says it is a keeper!

Mini Strawberry Tarts

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
These were delicious, though I agree they are time consuming. My girls are 3 years old and 20 months old and they enjoy rolling it into balls and pressing them into the muffin tins. Half the jello would have sufficed for us, because we didn't get the tart shells thin enough. They still tasted great though, especially with the whipped topping and I agree with the description, they do taste like mini strawberry shortcakes. I used the light cream cheese, as that is what I use for everything, and they were great. I did need my teenage son to finish stirring the dough once all the flour was added because it was so thick. I tried using the electric beaters but after a while the dough liked to climb right up the beaters and stay there, very hard to remove. Doesn't change my rating though.

Honey Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
My daughter found this recipe a couple of months ago and we have been letting her make it. Today, I finally got around to reading other's reviews and decided to try less mayonnaise as others have suggested. I used 1/2 cup honey, 1/4 cup yellow prepared mustard (because that is all we have in the house) and 1 cup of mayonnaise. We found this to be really good. My son said it taste better than his sister's, which is using the ratios in the recipe. Oh, and we never let it chill, we make it as we are getting the meal ready and it it great.

Pretzel Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
My daughter's old teacher was making this dessert when my daughter called her to wish her a happy birthday, so I decided to look up the recipe. There were so many similar recipes but I decided to go with this one after reviewing many comments and tips. My son crushed the pretzels and it came to about 2 cups crushed. We used 1 1/2 stick of butter as that is what I had left in the house (and other variations of this recipe called for this amount.) I use the 1/3 fat cream cheese. My local store only had 16 oz bags of whole frozen strawberries so I went with those and sliced them. One thing that was confusing about this recipe, and the reason I only gave this 4 stars, is that in the last step it says to stir in the frozen strawberries after it is boiling and it makes it sound as if you should leave it on the stove to get it to thicken. If I am not mistaken, Jello will not thicken if it continues to boil, it needs to cool. If I had not read other recipes and the comments I may have made this mistake. However, I took the saucepan and let it cool in the fridge for about 30 minutes then I poured it over the cream cheese mixture. I also followed what other reviewers had said and made sure the cream cheese layer completely sealed off the pretzel layer. I put this in 2- 9 inch pie plates and it was perfect. Except that after it set and I covered it with foil the Jello layer stuck right to the foil. I also liked it better the next day, the pretzels were less crunchy.

Honey Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This is the second time we tried this recipe. The first time we thought it was a bit too sweet, but I thought I used too much honey. I made sure to measure very accurately this time and it was definitely better. We like a lot of sauce so we did triple the sauce part of the recipe. And I didn't have access to any kind of stir-fry blend so I just used frozen broccoli. Last time I used some fresh broccoli and other veges which I unfortunately can't recall. Very very good and simple recipe. We love it with brown rice.

Chicken Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
This was really delicious. I cooked it until the liquid was gone as other reviewers had recommended and the flavor definitely stands out more. No it does not taste like Mexican tacos, but they were delicious. I did not have sour cream or salsa, but I used mashed avocados and it added that creamy texture. We used soft tacos. Oh yeah, we also doubled the garlic. We will have to double this recipe because we were all wanting more. Yuuummmmmy!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I wanted to make a taco dip after finding some at the local grocery store that was quite good, but when we went back for another one it was so runny. This recipe was the first one I found and after reading the recipe and reviews I decided to make it for dinner. Unfortunately my hubby didn't care for it, but my son loved it. We used it as a baked potato topping, yum yum! I made homemade guacamole to layer between the beans (which I heated in a pan before mixing in the taco seasoning) and the sour cream/cream cheese mixture. That is because my son can't have the dairy so I figured the guacamole would be a nice creamy substitute on his side of the dip. His side of the dip also had goat cheese. Other than that, there were no substitutions made, except I forgot the lettuce. Thank you for this yummy dip, we will be taking it to our next fellowship meal at church!!

Strawberry Syrup

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Delicious and easy recipe. I took the advice of some reviewers and cut the sugar to half a cup and also saved aside 1/4 cup of water and added 1 teaspoon of cornstarch which I added during the last minute. I did find it a little thin still, but that was okay because we let it cook until we needed it after supper. Definitely would have been too sweet with all the sugar

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
These beans were the first I have ever tried. The flavor was great, I tried to follow the recipe exactly for the first go around. I did take the advice to cook the bacon first, I wasn't sure if I should cook it crisp or not, so I cooked it in the oven on 400 for 7 minutes. Everyone loved the flavor, but we all decided I should have doubled the sauce as they were awfully dry. I simmered the beans for 1 hour as they had soaked a lot longer than I had planned. I believe they cooked in the oven for 3 hours. Still I little hard, but I didn't want them to get drier.

Turkey and Stuffing Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
I was looking for something different to make with our leftover turkey and this looked promising. I had to do some substitution, we had cheddar cheese and muenster (which I mixed right in with the turkey). I also added 1 cup of thawed frozen spinach. The crust got a little crisper than I would have liked as I had to cook this a half an hour longer to get the egg cooked. But as my husband and son said, the recipe is a "keeper."
