Eggnog I

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
This is a very good recipe! I like a stronger vanilla flavor so I did 1 1/2 tsp and put about a tsp of nutmeg in as well. I am completely happy with the taste! By the way, 1/3 pint is 2/3 cups. I had to look that up. I also heated my eggs, just to be safe because I have a toddler who loves eggnog. I heated the eggs, condensed milk and salt on a very low heat until it was about 160 degrees. Then I stirred in the milk and folded in the whipping cream as directed.

Bacon-Topped Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
I have been making this meat loaf for years. I have never been a very big meatloaf person but this has me sold. I double the worcestershire sauce and add about a 1-2 tsps of McKormick's Grill Mate Mesquite seasoning. as tempting as it is to load up on the cheese I have found it makes for a very soft and greasy meatloaf.

Sweet Potato Puffs

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
I wasn't wowed but these were tasty. I used dried out marshmallows which is our family trick for sweet potato casserole. That stops the them from melting but they will still be soft. This obviously takes some planning ahead because its going to take a couple weeks to get them nice and crunchy but if your making them for a special occasion it might be worth the preparation. I also used my extra-large cookie scoop (which is really an ice cream scoop I think) which kept things a little cleaner I think. Take a scoop of potato, shove the marshmallow inside, slather a bit more potatoes on the top, then plopped it into a bowl of crushed graham crackers. From that point is was pretty easy to form without all the mess.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This recipe was excellent! I only used 7 apples I think and that was still more than enough. I suppose it depends on the size of the apple. I know granny smiths are small sometimes. Mine were regular size. Anyhow, I think next time I will use 6 and save myself some peeling =) The pie is wonderful as is, but I think that I will try mixing the caramel topping inside next time and making a streusel topping just for kicks. Also, I always precook the apples about 10 minutes in a saucepan until crisp-tender. It makes a world of difference. Thank you for the recipe!

Carrot Parsnip Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
AW MAN! This is GOOD! If I could give this 10 stars I would! I accidentally browned/fried my parsnips when I first put them in the pan because I had the flame up to high but that was the best part! I skipped the onion, drizzled a wee bit of honey over the whole thing, then sprinkled it with a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon! MMMM!

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
In all fairness, I am not a fish lover which probably influenced this rating. Also, I used talapia instead of mahi-mahi because thats what I had. It was very good though. I will probably try this again but make it a hint sweeter this time. Just my personal preference.

Herb-Stuffed Red Peppers

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
This was very tasty! I've always liked the inside of stuffed peppers but had a hard time actually eating the pepper itself. The red pepper was the perfect solution! I was a bit nervous after tasting the seasoned meat mixture before I added the sauce. The allspice was a little much at that point. I was surprised to find the allspice blended in perfect in the finished product. Only sub was white rice for brown because that is what I had. next time I will cut the recipe in half. Neither my husband or I could finish more than half a pepper. Great recipe! Thanks!

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
These were really good! I kept feeling like they were to simple and I needed to add something more to spice them up....until I ate one. These are fantastic as is. I gotta be honest that I still might try mixing ranch mix in with the cream cheese later next time just to compare but they are fantastic just the way they are. I tried a half slice of bacon and it unraveled as it shrank. These definitely need a full strip as the recipe calls for.

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
This was pretty good and I can see how it resembles tuna. When I first made it i tried mashing the beans with a potato masher to give a meatier texture. That was kind of awful. The flavor was good, but it was very gritty. I put the beans in a food processor next time and made it into a paste. Then it was good! I added a little extra pickles and onions for texture and 2 boiled eggs! I really enjoyed it then! (P.S. I am not a vegetarian, I just try to not eat meat everyday)

Paula's Bread Sticks

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
These were very good! I didn't have powdered milk so I used a generous dollop of greek yogurt because I had already put the full amount of water in. Also, I don't have a bread maker. I like to do mine the old fashion way by combining the water yeast, and sugar first and let sit for a few minutes. Then I added the rest of the ingredients ( I melted the butter) and finally the flour. I let the dough do a double rise (quick 30 min rise in the bowl then a second rise after they were rolled into sticks). I added a Tbs. or so of garlic powder and some basil. They were devoured!

Candy Cane Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
These are my husbands favorite cookie. They are a bit of a pain to make but they are super cute and tasty. This recipe is missing the sugar/crushed peppermint topping though which is the key part of the cookie! Just mix equal parts sugar with finely crushed peppermints or candy canes. Top when the cookies are JUST out of the oven. If you are having problems with the topping not sticking, brush the cookies with a little corn syrup.

Peanut Blossoms II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Taste wise, these deserved five stars, but I really had a hard time with these cookies spreading to much. I only make these for Christmas which means looks matter a lot. I tried turning the heat up a bit and refrigerating the dough first, which helped but they still puffed up too much. Usually that would be perfect, but not what I want for these cookies.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2011
This was a tasty little dish. I cut the recipe and half so I just used one can cream of chicken, no mushroom. I added about a tsp or so of taco seasoning to the sauce mixture. I used left over white rice and just added a little fresh cilantro and lime juice to flavor it. I seasoned the chicken with Adobo all-purpose seasoning and used red onion. I think this recipe would have been tasty as is too, I just added a hint more flavor. A nice change up from my usual American-Mexican dishes.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
I can't stress enough how much I love this recipe! These pancakes are even fluffier than buttermilk pancakes. I add a tsp. vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond extract and they are perfect. I've also subbed almond milk instead of regular milk and made them half whole wheat and it still worked great. This recipe makes six 4" pancakes. Thanks again for the recipe!

Pie Crust I

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This is the pie crust that my mother makes and she is THE best pie maker! It's so simple and tender. I've tried venturing out to "fancier" pie crusts and really, you just can't beat this crust. It's perfect.

Buttermilk Pancakes I

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
These pancakes were pretty good. I can't pinpoint it but something is bland about them surprisingly enough. I added 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla which helped. I honestly have to say I think they are almost too sweet. Need like a 1/4 tsp of salt or something to break up the straight sugar flavor. Especially once you put syrup on them. Good but I prefer my old pancakes. Sorry =(

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

These were good. I rolled them in sugar like someone suggested. Very good. I had a problem with them cracking, other than that I am happy

Spicy Chipotle Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
Very yummy! I used red onion because I had it and fresh garlic instead of the powder. I did a double batch and froze a few burgers for later =)

Flavorful Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
This used to be a regular at my house. It's actually a Pampered Chef recipe, this one just skipped the roasted red peppers. Either way it is a very tasty and elegant meal. Yum!
