Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
As the recipe is written, these seeds are a little bland in my opinion. After reading other reviews, the next time I make them, I will increase the seasonings to give the seeds a little punch.

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Great recipe!! I got rave reviews from the family; this will definitely be our new recipe for meatballs, because when they're this easy to make, why would you buy those preservative-filled meatballs from the freezer section? The only changes I made were omitting veal and substituting more pork, one package of chopped spinach for the parsley and I was out of cheese, so I left that out too.

Made the recipe exactly as written and thought it was very tasty. I served it with refried beans and brown rice. It made a very substantial and healthy meal.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
Great basic stew recipe. It has great flavor as is, and the only addition I made was to add a can of tomato paste.

Kaese Spaetzle

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
Great basic recipe for spaetzle. I followed the recipe exactly, and the only change I would make would be to reduce the cheese next time. It was a bit overpowering for me, and I am a cheese lover.

Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
It was a little too bland for my taste to start off with, so I used milk and cream cheese instead of evaporated milk, chicken stock for water, added onion, parsley, rosemary and thyme and increased the cheese and pepper. The family loved it, so I will definitely make it again with the same changes.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Great basic recipe. My only suggestion is to double the sauce like other reviewers have stated. It would have been very dry had I not doubled it. I got rave reviews from 4 grown men and my 2 1/2 year old!!

Smothered Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I followed the recipe to the "T" and found it to be just yummy!! I always find short ribs to be very fatty so I skimmed off the fat as they were cooking on the stove and that helped with the greasiness. It left an amazing gravy after cooking for 3 hours. Paired with mashed potatoes and rolls finished off the meal!

Popovers

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
These popovers were simple to make and paired nicely with smothered short ribs from this site!! I found them to taste a little eggy and dense so I may have over stirred a bit or let them sit too long before eating. I will definitely try them again!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Yum!! I made a couple small modifications based on what I had in the pantry and suggestions from other viewers. I was out of oats so I used All Bran cereal instead. I also switched the amounts for the sugars. They turned out to be a flavorful, chewy cookie. I will definitely make them again!

Old English Cream Pie Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
This is such an easy and tasty base recipe for pudding or pie filling. I made mine chocolate by adding cocoa powder, and I didn't even have to adjust the sugar. Once you try this one, you'll never go back to boxed mix. The only thing I will make sure and do next time is sift my dry ingredients, because there were little clumps of corn starch and cocoa throughout the pudding.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
What an awesome cheese ball; it's much different from the usual savory ones I serve!! It was a little sweet for my taste, so next time I will cut back on the powdered sugar. I served it with graham crackers but I might try it with pretzels instead for a sweet and salty change.

Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Hands down, this is one of my favorite zucchini bread recipes that I have come across. I made a few slight changes to suit my taste: 2 cups ww flour and 1 cup ap flour, 1.5 tsp baking soda and powder to make up for the additional ww flour and .5 cup chocolate chips. It turned out moist and just sweet enough. This has become a family favorite of ours!!

Mom's Baked Beans II

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
YUM!!! These are so great I won't ever go back to canned baked beans! They are definitely worth the effort. To make them extra special, I even add left over brisket or slow cooked beef. It adds even more flavor!
