Chewy Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I followed the advice from the comments and upped the cocoa to a 1/2 cup. I also replaced the 1 cup of oil with applesauce. I put a pinch of cayenne and a 1/4 cup of coffee to enhance the chocolate flavor as well. I threw in peanut butter chips and unsalted crushed peanuts! Thank goodness I did, otherwise these brownies would have had no flavor! I think I am being generous by giving it 3 stars and that is only because they have a fantastic texture. That's not enough for me though, so I won't be making these again!

Bacon-Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
These were pretty good eggs, but nothing spectacular. I substituted fat free miracle whip for mayo and turkey bacon for regular. I added some grated onion and paprika to the mix for more flavor. The bacon and cheese didn't really add much flavor and the mix was dry, so I also had to add more miracle whip and mustard. I will make these again, but with my additions and I will probably play around with it more.

Cumin Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
I just changed my review after attempting them again, but I made changes. These were pretty good the 1st time, but the cumin is too much! You couldn't even taste the other ingredients. Here are the adjustments I made: finely diced bell pepper instead of jalapeno (adds moisture), 1/2 tsp. onion powder, 3/4 tsp. cumin, no soy sauce, 1 tbsp. of dijion mustard instead of the powder and 1/2-3/4 cup of panko bread crumbs. Browned them in a saute pan for 4 mins each side and then baked in the oven at 350 for 5 mins. YUMMY!!

Turkey Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Tasty idea, but I had to make too many modifications for more than three stars! I cut the recipe in half, but still need to add 1 cup of cream of mushroom soup, plus 1/4 cup of chicken stock to create a creamy sauce. It was also very bland, so I added a 1/4 tsp. cayenne, 1/4 tsp. paprika and 1/4 tsp. cumin. I also used worcestershire sauce instead of soy because I thought it would be too salty. I used 3/4 cup of fat free sour cream to try and add more sauce to the dish. I added some italian breadcrumbs and crushed ritz crackers on the top to create more texture. It tasted really good in the end!

Honey Wheat Bread II

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
This was my first time making bread, so I prepared myself for failure, but this bread turned out amazing! Yummo! However I made a few changes, partly because I had to! I thought my kitchen aid would explode! I could only use 3 1/2 cups of flour. I also increased the honey to a 1/2 cup and substituted applesauce for the oil. It did take about 25-30 extra minutes to rise. Anyways, regardless of almost killing my kitchen aid with so much flour, this bread was absolutely delicious!! It boosted my confidence for making bread!

Fresh Strawberry Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
This sauce is amazing!! I couldn't stop tasting it! I didn't have fresh strawberries, so I thawed 2 cups of frozen strawberries and it turned out perfect. I also omitted the 2 Tbsps of water since the frozen strawberries created enough juice once they thawed. Now, I wish my cheesecake had turned out just as a great, but it was my first time to bake one. I think I will try Chef John's recipe next time! :) Thanks for a super easy and yummy sauce recipe!

Mayonnaise Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
I made these to go with our Father's Day breakfast. They were super easy and very tasty! I didn't have self-rising flour, so I made my own. Just mix 7/8 cup of regular flour and 1 tsp of baking powder per cup needed for the recipe. They were even better warmed up and topped with butter and honey the next morning! Thanks!

Broiled Chicken with Roasted Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
Hello...this was delicious! I actually only made the sauce and put it in a baked pasta dish. I was looking for something very garlic based because we LOVE garlic! I had to make changes based on what I had and because we are a gluten free family. I can't wait to make this again and neither can my husband! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!! Changes: 2 heads of garlic & roasted it for 40 minutes, 1/4 cup of Parm cheese and 1/4 cup Asiago cheese , (we love our cheese too), rice flour & stirred in some sauteed peppers and onions.

Frank's Famous Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
A very good sauce and the only reason for the 4 is I had to make some changes. I took the advice of others and added a 1/4 tsp. of basil and oregano, a tbsp. of brown sugar and a bay leaf. I also added only 1 can of stewed tomatoes, 1 can of tomato sauce, only 2 tbsp. of tomato paste, 1 tbsp. of Worchestire, 1/2 a jalapeno diced and 1/4 tsp. of crushed red pepper. It was oh so yummy! I even made it without meat and put it on top of breaded chicken breasts! I will make this again...but with the modifications I did!

Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Excellent recipe!! I was very nervous because I had never made fondant before. It was yummy too! The only thing I did was sub butter for the shortening. The only reason for not giving this a 5 was I had to used about double the powdered sugar for it to be thick enough to roll. Overall though, I loved this!! Thanks! I just changed the rating from 4 to a 5 because I just made my 1st 2 tiered cake and because of this recipe I walked away from the party with sooo much pride! Everyone loved it!!!

Old-Fashioned Cheese Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Mmmm! These were delicious and super easy! I made them exactly as the recipe says, but used light margarine and skim milk to make them a little healthier. I do agree with some other reviews that you might want to add more salt. I don't even like American cheese, but had some on hand because my husband loves all cheeses. I couldn't stop "tasting" them once they came out of the oven! Thank you for this recipe!

Waistline-Friendly Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
I didn't have some key ingredients to make our usual chili, so I tried this one. I put it in the crockpot and the only thing I did differently was omit the chili flakes because many reviews stated it was too spicy. I didn't think it was spicy at all, so I ended up adding in the chili flakes after tasting it. I thought it was pretty bland and also too sweet! My husband will eat it because he will eat almost anything, but I won't be making this again.**I changed my rating from a 2 to a 1. My husband heated up a bowl when he got home and eventhough I said he will eat almost anything, he couldn't even eat the bowl he made. He thought it was way too sweet and I ended up dumping the rest!

Turkey Bolognese Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
This recipe was great!! I put it over rotini noodles since that is our favorite. I substituted red wine for the white wine, chili flakes for the jalapenos (because I didn't have any), added green bell peppers and parm cheese right in the sauce. I also cut the recipe in half because it was only for my husband and me which reduded the simmering time by almost 2 hours!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Yummo!! Donate the canned sloppy joe's mix and make this! This was fast, easy and delicious! Reminded me of dinner as a kid. The only changes I made was used ground turkey, fresh minced garlic and add some worchestshire sauce. I did double the sauce because I like it really sloppy! Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
This was my first time to make carrot cake so I wanted to try this recipe because of all the rave reviews. it turned out pretty good. I omitted the walnuts and raisins. I made them into cupcakes and it made 26 and they only needed to cook for 20 mins. The problem was because it is such a moist cake, a lot of it got stuck the paper cups. I think I am going to try a couple more recipes though to find that true southern carrot cake I remember as a kid.

Chicken with Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
I made this last night and won't make it again. I didn't have the fresh herbs, so I used dried like others suggested. It didn't have much flavor except for a weird tang. I kept trying to add more herbs, but nothing. It was really runny, so I did add some flour to thicken it.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
I've made these brownies a few times, but had not made them in awhile. I just baked a batch and yummo!! I forgot how delicious these are! I always cut the recipe in half, bake them in an 8X8 dish, use margarine instead of butter, egg substitute and white chocolate chips. They always turn out amazing and I don't feel as guilty eating more than 1 because I cut out some of the fat! ;) I also suggest just hand mixing, so the batter doesn't get over mixed. Best brownies ever! Everyone must try these!

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
These were super easy!! I will be making these again and again because they are perfect as a side dish for anything. I did leave them in for the full 30 mins. Delicious!

Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I took the advice of everyone and added cornstarch. I added 2 tsps. Thought this was very yummy! My crust was soggy in the center though, so next time I will par bake it for about 5 mins to prevent the juices from soaking in.

Slow-Cooked German Short Ribs

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I give this stars because the flavor is really yummy, but it reminded us why we don't make beef ribs...they are a lot of work for little meat. That was the only problem with this recipe. There was so much fat in the pot and not much meat! I cooled the sauce and scooped out as much fat as I could before adding the flour. Again, great flavor so we are going to try this again, but with a roast instead.
