Spaghetti Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I made this recipe and my friends loved it!! The slight sweetness is different from your normal spaghetti sauce. I didn't add garlic powder because I didn't have it, and it still turned out great!

Country White Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
My husband liked this recipe. Its hard to find good bread recipes for a non-bread machine. I don't have one (and don't want one). This was a good one. Not really bread to eat in a sandwich. My husband said it was more of a dinner bread than a sandwich bread, but still excellent tasting!

Mini Sour Cream Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
My husband and I came home from vacation and had no food. We were looking for something quick to whip up and found this recipe on the internet. It was a pleasant surprise. They were so easy, and very good! I didn't have a muffin pan, so I just dropped them onto the cookie sheet. I think that slightly burned the bottom. Either that, or I didn't need to cook them as long. Even with the brown bottoms, they were still awesome!

Quick Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Husband loved it. Just remember that the biscuit mix might not look like a lot, but it will be when its done cooking! I put way too much in it.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I thought they were great. They were quick and yummy! Update: I made these again today, and made an observation about why some puff and some don't. If you don't flour the dough before you leave it to rise for 30 minutes, it may stick to the counter. If it sticks, it punctures the dough and thus... it doesn't puff. So just make sure you flour it enough underneath so that it doesn't stick to the counter. Most of mine puffed and they are absolutely YUMMY again!

Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I thought this soup tasted absolutely wonderful! There were a few changes that I would make myself, based off of what I've had most of my life. I noticed other people added vegetables. I would highly recommend that. Perhaps some celery or mushrooms. I also thought that the pork would be better if it were grounded or something, rather than having it chopped coarsely. And I also thought that the soup could use more than 3 cups of chicken stock. My husband loved this soup, but felt like there was not enough "broth" part for how many wontons were in the soup. I doubled the amount of chicken stock which I thought would be perfect. The next time I make this I'm going to add other vegetables, shrimp, and more chicken stock than the recipe called for. The general flavor overall was really good though!

Chicken Carbonara

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
This was a pretty good recipe. It was really simple and very easy to make. I thought there was too much chicken for the recipe as a whole, but overall it was pretty good. I'll probably make it again.

Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I haven't frosted mine yet, but they tasted fabulous! One thing the recipe didn't advise (this is if you want to do cookie cutter type sugar cookies), is to refrigerate or freeze your dough for a bit. I left mine in the freezer for about an hour, and that helped a lot with rolling out the dough. I took other peoples advice and only cooked it for 8-9 minutes, and they turn out soft that way. Great cookies! I will make these again for sure.

Blueberry Muffins II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
When I ate these, I couldn't believe I made them, and that I didn't get them from some fancy restaurant. These were amazingly wonderful! I tried it without the sugar on top... and I definitely like the ones with the sugar better. It crystalizes the top and it makes them scrumptiously crunchy on top (but not too crunchy). They were great. I will definitely use this recipe over and over again!

Hoot-n Holler Baby Back Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
We didn't use the brown sugar because we used this local place's bbq sauce (its amazing by itself). Because the recipes says to cook it in the stock pot, the bbq sauce we brushed it with after didn't "seep" in very well. In the future, I might just marinade the ribs over night and grill them after brushing them with bbq sauce.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
First I will say that I didn't use beer, I used ginger ale. I was a little concerned about how these would turn out (with my moderation I mean) despite all of these amazing reviews, but these were amazing! The sauce is literally the best sauce I've ever had on a fish taco. My husband and I don't have a super high tolerance for heat in our food, so I might decrease the cayenne pepper to maybe 3/4 tsp or 1/2 tsp. Other than that, this was an awesome recipe. We will for sure use it again!

Best Guacamole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I didn't make this completely by the book, making the changes suggested by those who made this before. I used lime instead of lemon, used only a tsp of olive oil, also adding some cumin and a clove of garlic to the mix. Next time I will use cilantro and tomatoes along with the listed adjustments (didn't have those 2 things on hand this time).

Chicken Taquitos

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I may have used too much chicken, but I added more sauce to balance out the extra chicken I had put in. It was not as flavorful as I was hoping. My room mate used to make flautas/taquitos in college and hers were so much better than this! This could use a clove of garlic, maybe a 1/2 tsp of salt, and some cumin. Hopefully that'd give it a little bit of kick. Brushing them with olive oil and baking them did wonders! Eating them with guacamole, salsa, and/or sour cream made them taste much better.

French Breakfast Puffs

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
My sister had a recipe for these, but called them donut muffins. They were good. You really need to make sure you put enough butter and cinnamon on it. If there isn't enough, it doesn't taste as good.

Stovetop Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I made the suggested adjustments and it turned out great! I think 3- 3 1/2 cups of rolled oats is probably better, if you want your granola to stick together better. Very flavorful. I added dried cranberries and chopped dates. Yum!

Brownie Batter + Cupcake = The SECOND BEST Cupcake. Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Wow. These were good! I made them for a friend and "taste tested" one to make sure it was ok before giving it to them to eat. I don't even really like chocolate or peanut butter, but the combination was amazing!

Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
I would use craisins as opposed to fresh cranberries. It was a little too tart for my liking. And perhaps my choosing of cranberries was less than perfect, but the cranberries made the muffin taste weird. The base lemon muffin though was pretty good. I could eat that without the cranberries though.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Don't whip the frosting for as long as it says to. It looks chunkier the longer you whip it, so kind of eye ball it. Super tasty though!
