Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
Awesome! I never knew I could make kettle corn on the stove, and I'm super excited because I loooove this stuff! Followed the recipe exactly aside from halfing it, and I did do the "kernel test" like I always do with popcorn. Thanks for this great recipe!

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
All I can say is... I should have made a double batch! I was looking for a healthier banana bread (aka: natural sweeteners instead of sugar, and whole wheat) and this was a great find. I made it as muffins instead of a loaf so it's easy for the kiddos. The only changes I made (aside from addition of spices) was out of necessity- I was low on some ingredients. I used 3 large bananas, grapeseed oil (wanted to use coconut but did not have enough) and half raw honey/half maple syrup (amounted to 1/3c instead of 1/2- hence the extra banana for sweetness). I also added cinnamon and nutmeg, and a dash of allspice and clove. Awesome! And thank you! :)

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
These are AWESOME! I did not refrigerate the dough and they turned out just fine. I stuck a few reese's pieces in one batch, we'll see how they turn out :)

Sweet Potato French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
This was great!! Added a little something extra to plain old french toast. My son and I both loved it I will definitely be making this again :) *I added just a touch of vanilla and a dash of ground cloves. Served with warm maple syrup- Perfect!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Eating this right now--delicious!! It's my first time making potato soup, or any creamy soup for that matter! I was nervous... but this recipe was really easy and forgiving, and the taste is great! Per other reviewers suggestions: I did add 1.5c cheese to the soup (I like cheesy soup!) and I did go a little easy on the basil. I did end up mashing the potatoes just a little bit to make the soup thicker, as I like thicker cream soups. Next time I think I will add more flour in the beginning, because I'd like to keep the chunky potatoes rather than mashing them. Oh, also I did lightly boil my potatoes rather than baking.

Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
I was hoping for something "Red Lobster-esque", and these are close but a bit too dry for my tastes/what I wanted. They are tasty, though! I used another reviewers suggestion and brushed them with garlic butter instead of garlic salt (if you do this, make sure you add a pinch of salt to the mix since you're not putting it on top).

Apple-Cinnamon Syrup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
Gave it 4 stars because I don't know what the exact recipe will be like - I kind of just used this as a starting point and threw stuff together. I only had one apple (granny smith), so I estimated amounts based on that. I didn't have corn starch, so I used a tiny bit of flour. I added some allspice (just a tiny tad) with the cinnamon. I gotta say - it was delish! Used it on peanut butter pancakes - my 2-yr-old finicky eater ate almost 3!

Erin's Indonesian Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This was easy and delicious! I'm actually eating it right now as I type :) I think I added a bit too much peanut butter, because I was in a rush and didn't measure. But my 2yr old loooves peanut butter, so he dug right in! After I served my son I added a little more curry sauce (didn't have chili paste) to spice it up more for my husband and myself(and overpower the peanut butter). I enjoy the green beans in it, but would like to try it with asparagus, as another reviewer suggested, and broccoli.

Baked Pasta with Sausage and Baby Portobello Mushroom White Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
Amazing!!! I did not use the sausage, as I didn't have any. But I will try it w/sausage next time! I was also out of heavy cream, so I subbed a milk/butter mixture with a bit of flour to thicken it. This is SO easy to make and is sooooo tasty. I was amazed that I'm actually capable of making a creamy sauce that doesn't separate :) I put it over whole wheat spaghetti and sauteed chicken. My husband, father, and even my toddler gobbled it up!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
Holy these are tasty!! Sugar cookies have always been my downfall, but these are GREAT!! Lightly crispy around the edges, soft and chewy center. And not bland at all! They are soooo tasty! I halved the recipe, but still used one whole egg (hoping to make them a bit fluffy rather than all crispy-success!). My husband is going back for more--I'm right behind him!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
This made awesome cupcakes!! It was not dense at all--nice and fluffy!! I made sure the cream the butter/sugar really well and then beat the eggs in like crazy. I didn't do 8-10 min as previous review suggested... probably 2min on the butter/sugar and 2-3 minutes on the egg. I frosted them with the Chocolate Frosting II recipe from this site. GREAT!!

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Love this chicken! All I had was reg. cheddar cheese, so that's what I used but it was delicious :) I sauteed the mushrooms (also added onions) in the same pan as the bacon (after dumping grease) and it was a great flavor meld. I have never broiled chicken before, so I was nervous. It really did not seem like it was cooking!!! But it definitely did(followed the 8-9 min. recommendation)--and so tender and moist. Quick, easy, supa tasty!

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
AWESOME!!! I came down with a horrible cupcake craving and found this recipe--soooo glad I tried it!! In fact, I'm eating my second one right now and had to pause to enjoy the last bites :) I used previous reviewers comments and used lemon juice and oil (in lieu of cream of tartar and shortening, because I had niether). I used natural peanut butter, because that's all I have. I used the chocolate frosting (II? I think) recipe from this site and it is a perfect pair :) Accidentally added too much vanilla, but it did not seem to alter the peanut buttery taste. My only complaint was my own fault--I baked them just a couple of minutes too long so they were not quite as moist as I would have liked them to be. Though not quite dry--but borderline. My husband and I both love these--will make again!

Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
This was AWESOME! I used 2 eggs instead of one, 3 tbs. pumpkin pie spice(instead of separate spices) and added extra cinnamon. I did use Eagle brand condensed milk as suggested on another recipe. Don't know what difference that made, but it sure turned out delicious! I also used extra brown sugar in the topping, and used an unbaked pastry pie crust instead of the graham cracker crust. Everyone loved it and I will be making it every year (and in between holidays, too!).
