Ham Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2013
Tasty, but rosemary was too strong (I should have read other reviews beforehand). However, my main issue with it was how thin it was. I had to add quite a bit of flour to thicken it up. I sprinkled in some pepper and added some chopped string beans for more texture.

Kyle's Favorite Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
I use beef broth instead of onion soup mix and it is scrumptious! I prefer shiitake mushrooms though as I like their more earthy taste.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
I'll try letting it sit with seasoning next time. The flavors didn't absorb much, but the drippings more than made up for it.

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Insanely good. I also sprinkled some mozzarella on top so that I got a nice melt.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I didn't have potato flakes so that might have affected the final crust. Overall, it was very juicy, but the flavor was lacking.

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
I didn't have canned mushrooms/onions or the herbs at hand so I used shiitake mushrooms and added some potatoes. I also added 1T of Worcestershire sauce to the beef, halved the red wine, and used chicken stock (would have used beef but I forgot to buy it!). The flavors blended extremely nicely and the starch from the potatoes made the resulting sauce thicker (I love the slight graininess).

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
I only had half-and-half at hand so I used that and cream soda (I use fruit juice when making scones and they tend to taste better than just plain milk, but I didn't have any at hand) in lieu of milk. They came out moist with an incredibly flaky texture, so this is definitely my go-to biscuit recipe from now on.

Pretty bland. I liked the crispy texture though.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
I'm not sure if I added the sugar correctly or not, but it ended up oozing out of the dough in the oven. After the cookies cooled, the final texture was very brittle and overly sweet/oily.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
Love this recipe! I've always made it with sharp Cheddar, monterey, and mozzarella (about 4 oz each) and it tastes great! I highly suggest adding the 1/2c milk as stated in previous reviews.

Eggless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
The cake rises beautifully, has a lovely texture, and looks wonderful--but it's taste is quite bland. Next time around, I'll probably incorporate other flavors. Update: The chocolate used really affects the taste! Invest in some quality chocolate.

Basic British Scones

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
Very tasty, but a bit on the dry side. Unfortunately, my creations were not reminiscent of Tea & Sympathy's as another reviewer remarked.

Summer Potato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
INCREDIBLE. The citrus balances the inherent creaminess of the salad making it extremely refreshing to eat. The eggs did not overpower the taste at all (although the smell does) so that my friend (who HATES eggs) actually liked this.

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
Quick and easy recipe (and cheap too)! Tastes really good especially if you roll in some chocolate chips.

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
Really nice consistency, but was too sweet! I'll try cutting the sugar next time around.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
Most of my family preferred this recipe! Personally, I felt it would have been better if it was less chewy (I baked this twice with the same results). Note: there is a REALLY big difference if you let it cool on the sheet and if you immediately cool it on the rack. Definitely keep it on the sheet for a few minutes.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
LOVED it! Made it to recipe, except I made sure cookies were very flat. After baking, it was still very soft and chewy! The second time, I tried making them thicker and it was still very flavorful, but I definitely preferred the flatter ones. I also substituted water with OJ like a few reviewers suggested and there was a noticeable difference.
