Easy Peanut Butter Cookies by EAGLE BRAND®

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
Delicious cookies...not your usual PB cookie by a longshot! This recipe yields cookies that are slightly chewy and light -- almost cake-like in texture. The flavor is not overly sweet (and may taste "not-sweet-enough" if you are accustomed to a high-sugar diet), but with that said, they are plenty sweet. Additionally, I did not find them to be salty, as some of the reviewers mentioned. If you are expecting a traditional, crispy peanut butter cookie (that is, very sweet and very peanut-buttery), this is not it. I baked a dozen (approx 10 mins to cook rather than the shorter recommended time) and froze the remainder in small batches so we can have warm-out-of-the-oven cookies with minimal effort in the weeks to come. I do think these would be fantastic with a Hershey kiss or a jelly center as well and will likely experiment with different toppings/centers as well as crunchy peanut butter in future batches. *Brand Note: I used Bisquick brand, JIF omega-3 PB and 1 1/4 c homemade sweetened condensed milk.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I made pie following recipe exactly and it was dry...I see why so many reviews recommend adding gravy or gravy mix. If I make this again, I will add some.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This is an excellent recipe! Highly recommend! I've made this twice, following the recipe exactly the first time-5 stars. The second time, while the eggs were beating, I mixed sugars & flour with a whisk, then added melted butter and mixed. This seemed to keep the sugar from having a grainy texture. I added an extra 1/4c of pecans also. Whether or not you change a thing, this recipe is super!!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
I was hesitant to try this recipe as it does not contain the more traditional ingredients of chopped onion (fresh), celery and egg. But this is not your traditional tuna salad! It is wonderful. I made it exactly as listed. I will cut back on the mayo the next time.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
I used 1lb. each of lean ground beef, lean ground turkey, and Italian turkey sausage in an effort to cut some calories and fat. Honestly, you couldn't tell by the taste. I used a 4.5 oz. can of green chiles instead of fresh due to availability. Other than that, I followed ingredient list exactly. Two things to keep in mind: this is a little hot for kids (but they did like it) so you may want to add hotter spices a little at a time. Also, this is a big batch!! After browning the meat, I combined everything in a very large bowl and immediately froze half. I put the other half in the crockpot and cooked on low for 10 hrs. It was delicious.

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
My family loves this! Four stars rather than five only because I'm not a fan of pinto bean soups. I'll make this again, not a thing needs tweaking.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
The salt completely overpowered all other flavors. Based on the other numerous positive reviews (and suggestions), I will make this again with less salt.

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
So, so good! We have a local diner that serves this side, but I have to say, mine was even better! I took the recommendations of others and used rice vinegar. To save time, I used about 2/3 of a bag of slaw mix. Also, the browning time for the almonds and sesame seeds was a little long. I stirred them every two minutes and they were done within six minutes. My entire family (even my 1 1/2 year old) loved this.

Egg Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
The first time I made this (a week or two ago) I followed the recipe exactly...5 STARS! I made it again tonight using fresh onion and adding a little bacon and it was once again delish. I've read several reviews that people have added sweet relish, so I'll have to try that next.

Fruit Leather

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
I was hoping for a nutritious alternative to snacktime for the kids, and also a way to use up an excess of fresh pears. The end result--just not a good flavor at all! A lot of prep work involved. The edges were overdone and the center was underdone. I won't try this one again!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
The flavor was good, but the eggplant was tough. I cut my slices at about 1/4"; looking back at the other reviews, I think it just needed to bake longer than 5 minutes per side. I did sweat the slices first, as recommended by many others. I needed more egg and bread crumbs to coat the slices-and I even used less eggplant than called for. I think the cooking times and amounts used in this recipe definitely need some tweaking. Also, since eggplants vary so much in size, weight would be much more helpful than number.

Zucchini Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Wonderful flavor! I made this for my family for a Sunday morning brunch. Even the kids ate it up! The filling fit perfectly into a deep dish crust. I brushed the crust with an eggwash before baking it. If you are looking for something that looks as good as it tastes, this is it! Thank you, Dorothy for sharing this!

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Delicious flavor! One recommendation: Mix dry ingredients together first to prevent flour from clumping. Also, the filling didn't hold together very well, so once sliced, we had to spoon it out of the dish. But--none was leftover; everyone loved it! I would like to make this with the same filling, except as a crisp.

Waldorf Salad II

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Delicious recipe. I did use glazed pecans rather than the walnuts and tossed the apples (unpeeled Gala and Granny Smith) in lemon juice before adding the other ingredients. My grandmother makes a similar version adding miniature marshmallows...this is worth a try, too. I look forward to making this again.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
If you have never tried this, it is a must! Do take the advice many others have offered and use ripe bananas. Much tastier and a little more nutritious than the old standby of pb & j. I use light margarine rather than pan spray...PERFECT!

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
Very good recipe, one I will continue to tweak in the future. I added about 1/2 c. corn, a 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes and about 1 c. okra after sauteeing them in olive oil with extra garlic and additional creole seasoning. I'd like to make this again, adding shrimp, crawfish or possibly both.

Incredible! The only thing I will do differently next time is make a larger batch!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
Fantastic! I did add a package of frozen peas, extra ham, and additional salt and pepper to what was leftover after dinner. The result was even better than the original. I will definitely make this soup again and again.

BBQ Teriyaki Pork Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
These were delicious! I used pre-marinated Teriyaki Turkey simply because that's what I had on hand and it turned out great (and a little more healthy). I served these with brown rice, mixing some of the basting sauce in for added flavor. Definitely will use this recipe again!
