Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Great recipe. After reading the reviews I was hesitant to try this. The cookies turned out so chewy and stayed chewy. Most of the bad reviews came from changing the ingredients and the few that did not change the recipe and had poor reviews said they preferred a little more flavor. So I added 1/4 c more of each sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon. The cinnamon added flavor, but I think you could get away with not using it. My husband and I ate all of these in two days! They are a little different than a regular chocolate chip cookie, but so very soft, and once you get past the preconceived idea of a typical chocolate chip cookie you will really like these.

Rice Balls a la Tim

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Even my husband who lived in Italy for 2 years loved these. However, the second time we made them we made little cheese balls in the middle. Certainly added to it, but great without too!

Pasta with Kielbasa and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
My husband doesn't like the sauerkraut so he picks it out. but he won't let me make this without it cause he knows how much flavor it adds. I did modify this quite a a bit because I didn't have dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, bell pepper or white wine the first time I made it. i followed the instructions otherwise, but added a little vinegar, garlic powder, beef boullion cube, and extra parsley. Some say this didn't have enough flavor that is why I added it, but really it would have probably been fine without the additions. Didn't expect to like this one, but loved it! You may have to experiment with it. I have occasionally added too much vinegar and had to add other spices to fix it (such as sugar, salt, pepper, etc.)

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Husband said they were better than his moms! Anyway, like other reviewers said, they don't raise, no matter how long you leave them, but it doesn't matter cause they taste great. My husband wanted them again after we ate a whole pan ourselves. He usually only requests desserts again.

Italian Popcorn

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I made three different snack mixes tonight and found this to be the best one! I wish I made more. I used Parmesan cheese instead of Romano and actually stirred it in the butter mix instead of adding later. I also used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Because I had read a few reviews that said it wasn't flavorful enough, I added a little more oregano and basil and even lemon pepper to the mixture. I found five cups of popcorn was a little less than the mixture so I added some small pretzels. You may want to use more popcorn or a little less butter to compensate. Overall I really liked this one and wished I had made more.

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Extremely easy. Even I couldn't mess it up! Tastes just like the store bought mix we ran out of.

Dishpan Cookies II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
These were great. However, I used 1/2 corn flakes and 1/2 rice crispies (because I was low). I also DID NOT put coconut in them. Everyone at work loved these and they were gone quickly! Perfect chewy texture!

Chocolate Rocky Road Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
I liked the flavor, but would not put nuts in next time. I did add corn flakes to a second batch and that helped them. Also, one marshmallow is not enough use three or four. Otherwise if you can find the formula for cocoa powder instead of choc chips melted it would be much easier.

Uglies

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
We love these. I did add a can of green chilis and tomato, and some brown sugar to the mixture. we also used homemade biscuit dough which I think helps.

Lots of Chocolate Cherry Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
I don't drink coffee and wasn't about to buy some just for this so I didn't add coffee. As strange as it sounds I substituted candy sprinkles for the coffee (the thicker sprinkles). I also added more chocolate chips instead of adding white chocolate chips, and used cranberries instead of cherries. Perfect texture and great flavor.

Mansaka

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Not the flavor I was expecting, but a new taste. Definitely will make again, but more of a side dish than a regular meal.

Soft Giant Pretzels

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
I also found the pretzels stuck to the paper towels as mentioned below and were a little too much more like rolls than pretzels. Someone else suggested more flour or longer cooking, so take that into consideration. I made smaller balls instead of 8 i ended up making 21 smaller pretzels. We also rolled some of them in melted butter and then cinnamon/sugar mixture. Overall a pretty simple and good recipe.

Tropical Beef and Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Great recipe. Didn't have cashews so I used peanuts. Forgot to drain the grease from the beef, but it still turned out great. I made it with noodles, but I would recommend eating over rice instead of noodles. Very easy to make, as I am not always the greatest at cooking (as you see I forgot to drain) :)

Oat Snack Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
This wasn't as good as I hoped, but still pretty good. To be fair, I mistakenly thought I had honey, so I had to substitute with white sugar and karo syrup so it may have been different with honey. Otherwise I used corn flakes and cheerios which i thought worked very well. the corn flakes were especially tasty as they candied up well. I also used a little popcorn as suggested by another user, but found the popcorn didn't work as well so I wouldn't recommend using that. I haven't added cranberries or raisins yet, but will likely do that tomorrow. However even without the berries and raisins it would be just fine.

Fudge-Nut Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Not terrible, but definitely not as good as all of the reviews. the chocolate was too soft. would be better if it thickened up. Perhaps I added the milk at the wrong time. Recipe lists ingredient, but not when to add so I assumed you added with the melting butter etc. perhaps you might want to add with the vanilla at the end?

Chili Taco Popcorn

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
The recipe calls for twice as much butter as needed. Because I've done a lot of popcorn recipes I did a little more than half the suggested amount. Otherwise I found this recipe to be a little spicy so be sure to have something sweet or bland to balance it out as you eat it. Or you can put in a little less spice. But otherwise I found this to be a good recipe, but definitely not my favorite. There are many other flavors I enjoy more. Its almost as if it needs a little cheese flavor or other variation added.

Spritz Orange Crisps

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
This is actually a very good recipe, however I didn't have orange juice so I used lemon juice. I found the dough didn't have a very strong citrus flavor, so I added one more tablespoon of lemon juice (2 total) and then 2 tbsp of lemon extract. This made the flavor much better, but lemon flavored of course. Very much liked. If I had orange I would suspect you will need to add more juice and even extract if you have it.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
Not very impressed. They were not very flavorful, and definitely not the right texture for an oatmeal cookie. Not terrible, but definitely does not deserve the five stars that it seems to be getting.
