Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
These were wonderful gifts!! I made some of the finished cookies before hand and they were terrible! Dry and crumbly, but then I realized I had forgotten the white sugar. Made all the difference. Great tasting cookies. I took a tip from another post and layered the white sugar at the bottom and then white chips, then cranberries and then brown sugar, flour and oats. That way when you cover the top you can still see all the festive colors. I used old christmas card and glued the instructions to the back of the pictures. Made beautiful tags and didn't have to buy cardstock.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
This is a great recipe. I doubled it because I had a pound of italian sausage I needed to use. And I used fresh garlic, just my preference. These were really easy to make and with doubling the recipe I ended up with 72 meatballs. cooked 24, shaped and froze the rest on a cookie sheet then when frozen put them in a plastic bag. Will never buy premade meatballs again.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
Just finished having this for dinner, and it was really good for how easy it was. Start to finish really 30 min and I got to use all the shrimp shells. I made cous cous as a side. Boiled shrimp shells in 2 cups water for 10 minutes while I melted the butter and made the scampi sauce then strained out the shells, put in the cous cous at the same time I put the shrimp in the oven. SO good and different. Like some of the suggestions I used 1/2 cup water and a good splash of white wine. Served with steamed cauliflower. Delicious.

Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
This was wonderful. The best thing about it is that it's so easy to put together, with things most people have on hand. The oj make just the right amount of secret flavor. I did only use 1/2 cup of oil and it was a little dense. but if you want a homemade tasting cake,definatly try this one.

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
This was a great recipe for the end of the month out of money pantry. We always have rice so all i had to buy was 3 strips of bacon and one thick slice of ham. Added half a bag of frozen stir fry veggies and doubled the amount of rice, soy, and eggs. Was a great cheap dinner. I think I spent $6 on meat and frozen veg, had rice, eggs and soy on hand, had plenty left over for two lunches the next day so I got 6 servings out of this. Will definatly be adding this the the end of month list.

Granola Cereal Bars

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
These were pretty good. Not as healthy as some other recipes on this site, but tasty and quick. I did like how it didn't have to go in the oven and I was worried that the oatmeal would have a raw taste but it didn't. I did take the advice of some other reviews and didn't boil the mix but just got it hot. After mixing everything it seemed way to dry to I added 4 tbsp of melted butter and that helped alot. After cool and cut these tasted alot like no bake cookies.

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
This was a good recipes, I'm making it for gifts this year with a small gift bag of home-made marshmallows. My only suggestions would be I used almost a half a cup more confectioners sugar and the dutch dark cocoa powder, and a 1/4 c. more creamer to make it less watery. Would definatly be better made with milk. Also recommend sifting all ingrediants before putting in jars. FYI recipe makes 5 pint jars full, be sure to tap them on the counter before sealing to allow for settling

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2005
This recipie is wonderful. I made a couple of batches for friends and people at work last christmas time and now in September with the first chill in the air I am getting calls for more bread. I added a little vanilla extract and about 1/4 of a cup of maple syrup, which was the flavor no one could place but everyone loved!

Autumn Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
We really like this. I didn't have any egg noodles so had it with steamed carrots and mashed potatoes. I doubled it since I had some pork to use. I would have been fine with leaving the sauce as one amount instead of two.

Chocolate Cream Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
This is chilling in the fridge right now. I didn't have enough chocolate squares so I used regular cocoa powder with some oil (3tbsp per 1 tbsp of oil)I doubled this so that I had the same amount called for in the recipe. It turned out amazing. Tastes like chocolate brownie pudding. Very very chocolaty. I think the cocoa powder may have made it stronger. I think you could do this with any chocolate chip flavor too, just cut down on the sugar or cut it out. Definitely a keeper for us.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Was very nervous about cooking the roast this way but I always over cook roasts in the oven so I thought I would give it a shot. This will be the only way I cook a roast in the oven from now on. Turned out great!! Nice and pinky-red in the middle, just the way we like it.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
These totally hit the spot for a chocolate craving. Did increase the cocoa to 1/2 cup. Also substituted fat free greek yogurt for 1/2 the butter. Needed to cook probably 5 extra minutes for the extra moisture.

Creole Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
This was really GOOD! Even the boyfriend said multiple times how yummy it was,which is unusual. Read the reviews thoroughly, used chicken stock instead of plain water, no salt just creole seasoning. It did only take 2 hours,not four but our beans weren't very old either. Will definitely make again, especially when the budget is tight. I think I spent $8 on all the ingredients,and will get at least 6 servings.

Easy Bacon and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
I made mine with cheddar cheese mix, real bacon-about 5 pieces diced and fried and I also sauteed the onion in the bacon grease before mixing the bacon, onion and cheese together. I also added some garlic powder to the mix. Really great flavor and a great general recipe that can easily be adapted to your own tastes. Only gave it 4 stars because it didn't really work for a quick weeknight dinner, took too long.

Stuffed and Wrapped Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
good, just not spectacular. Especially for the amount of prep work it took. Note: you have to turn the breasts over halfway through cooking to get the bacon done all the way around. The first time I pulled it out of the oven I was disappointed that the bacon that had been on the bottom of the pan was still rubbery and not done. Not appetizing.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
These were great!! Doubled the recipe and glad I did. I did add 1tsp. vanilla, an extra egg and about 3 tbsp of Splenda. These did take longer to cook through and the first one I pulled to early and it was still gooey in the middle. With a little spread of peanut butter my 3 year old ate 3 whole pancakes!! And I didn't even feel guilty because they were so good for him.

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
This recipe was really good!! I have had trouble before getting that really crispy fry with out par cooking or frying and then doing it again but this batter did the trick. The first couple of pieces I put in I was a little nervous because they take a few minutes to brown but they turned out great. I used a large electric skillet so I could more closely monitor the heat and had mine turned on 400 degreees. Next time I think I will try doing them in the over. Healthier and because my ventilation is poor in our apartment it did make the house smell of oil for a day or so.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
If I could I would give it a 4 for flavor and a five for being so easy, but I can fix the flavor- more garlic more garlic. Really this was a great alfredo. I had my concerns when I mixed the cream cheese with the butter, it did not look like it was going to come together but you just have to keep stirring and give the cream cheese time to soften and melt. I used this for some ravioli with a big salad and crusty bread and it was great. It did make alot though and I had enough to use later in the week with macaroni, left over chicken and broccoli. Big hit with my 2 1/2 year old.

Roasted Butternut Squash, Olive and Parmesan Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
This recipe was good, the risotto turned out nice and creamy and the squash gave a beautiful color and flavor, but next time I would half the amount of olives and cut them into smaller pieces, they were visiually nice but the flavor of the big pieces was too much for me
