Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
I loved these! I read all the "bad" reviews first and have concluded that the bakers either a) mixed the batter TOO much, b) added too many extras like cinnamon and vanilla, or c) all of the above. I made two batches: regular (as written) and toasted coconut and toasted walnuts to batch number two. Both were fabulous :) I used almost black bananas, no cinnamon, no vanilla and they were very banana-y.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
These were a great and a special Monday night treat for DH and me. They were very easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly. The dough is extremely sticky, but that can be remedied by spooning the dough into the greased muffin tin instead of rolling into a balls. Again, really great, tasty, quick yeast rolls!

Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
We loved this cheesecake. DH is a cheesecake freak and I do believe that this is now his favorite cheesecake recipe. The texture is light and almost "egg custard-y;" almost like egg custard pie. If you're looking for dense, super smoothe, NY-style cheesecake, you need to look at other recipes. The ricotta cheese is prominent as well as the texture. Mine cracked horribly but I followed the recipe and method to a T. I do believe the temp needs to be at 325 degrees farenheit and the cake would probably benefit a water bath while cooking to prevent the cracks. The flavor is absolutely wonderful and, if covered with a sauce, is presentable. Oh, and I love the fact that there is no crust!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Love this cake! Its so easy, too. All I had were sweet Gala apples and I could have decreased the amount of sugar by half a cup and it still would have been sweet enough. The apple texture turned out fine, too. An easy cake with simple, autumnal flavors and, for the most part, budget friendly, too. Thanks!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
A+ chili recipe! It has just the right amount of spice and kick to it so you don't have to keep reaching for a beverage to douse the fire. Really, really easy to make (just chop and drop for the most part). Its tasty with or without the extra "fixin’s" (shredded cheese, sour cream, corn chips, crackers, etc). As is, it makes a lot of chili. I got about 20 standard sized ladlefuls of the stuff. Thanks for sharing!

Pork Chop and Cabbage Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
This was pretty good. My 77 year old grandfather, who likes just "plain-Jane" foods (and there is nothing wrong with those types of people OR food, mind you), thought it was really good. For convenience, I cooked it in the crock pot (use a full can of soup plus a full can of water) on high for one hour and then on low for four hours. I also didn't peel the potatoes and just sliced them into big hunks like you would for a roast. It was filling but I had some dijon mustard on the side with mine and it helped it a bit. The "gravy" would've been really good over rice or noodles. All in all, I'll probably make this again since the "Oldman" is a cabbage and pork lover. Thanks for sharing!

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
This is wonderful especially for those who LOVE pumpkin pie (or pumpkin anything for that matter). This worked on the stove-top (as one reviewer noted) just fine. It took about 40-45 minutes on low heat and stirring occasionaly. This thickened quite nicely, too. I also used more spices, 2% evaporated milk, and "heart healthy" (no hydrogenated oils) baking mix. I also omitted the butter to keep it a bit more "healthy." The general consensus is "wonderful" and DH and I agree that served with gingersnap cookies and cinnamon bourbon whipped cream (or whipped topping) would be terrific but its great on its on with a dollop of whipped topping.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Tasty and easy. DH made these while I made Hungarian Mushroom Soup and he said they were really simple to make. The in-laws really liked them, too, so this is a definite crowd pleaser. This is a keeper.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Exceptional soup for us mushroom lovers and it can also present as very company worthy. Instead of adding the sour cream to the entire batch (we wanted to freeze some leftovers for later on), I served the soup in pretty bowls and then added a dollop of sour cream in the middle and a sprinkling of fresh, finely chopped parsley (didn't add lemon juice because I forgot). I was afraid that upon freezing and then reheating with the sour cream already in the soup, it would seperate or curdle and look unappetizing. DH, a very open minded man about eating meatless meals once a week, loved it. We had Cheddar Bay Biscuits with it as well as a Cucumber Salad with vinegar, dill, sugar, and sour cream. Very hearty meal. Thanks for sharing!

Mongolian Beef I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
Tasty. I had 1.32 lbs of steak so I upped the soy sauce to 4 tablespoons. I had plenty of "gravy" for rice. Also, I didn't have carrots so I used a large green bell pepper thinly sliced and doing so reminded me of pepper steak. Easy, fairly quick, affordable, and good leftovers for the next day.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
naples 34102 wrote that this needed no tweaking ... and they were right. I followed their advice and the recipe (to a T) and its delicious. The prep is easy yet time consuming (peeling was difficult and cubing into 1" chunks was a little ambitious and I had to go smaller) but it was worth it. DH really liked so this is a keeper (especially when this stuff goes on sale in the fall for $0.69/lb).

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Awesome cookies! I doubled the batch as suggested by a review I had read and got 3 dozen, 2" diameter cookies using a rounded tablespoon measuring spoon. I baked the first batch for 8 minutes and thought it need to brown a bit more. The second and third batches I baked for 13 minutes and they browned nicely but after a day of storage, I prefered the 8 minute batch cookies as they were a touch softer than the 13 minute batches. DH and I are trying to budget our meals and this is a perfetct, budget-friendly treat as we always have these ingredients on hand ;) Thanks for sharing!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
Delish! And easy! My husband and I really enjoyed this and the leftovers were fantastic. This was a great way to get a meatless meal in our week, too.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Well, it *is* cake-like. I was somewhat disappointed because I was expecting this crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle chocolate chip cookie. If this is the type of cooking you're wanting/expecting with pumpkin flavor, you might as well go with a traditional chocolate chip cookie and a slice of pumpkin pie on the side ;) The only thing I did was use only a half cup of brown sugar instead of the full cup of white sugar. Doing so deepened the cookie's color and didn't mask the actual pumpkin goodness. The family liked them and DH's grandmother has requested more for Thanksgiving (pumpkin is her absolute favorite flavor ... of anything lol).

Cream Cheese Jalapeno Hamburgers

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This was ok. Maybe it was the cook but I got little meatballs instead of hamburgers. Plus, they were really dry. The cream cheese jalepeno flavor was great, though; we used the leftover filling as a dip :o)

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
These were really delicious and super simple to make. To us, they tasted just like pumpkin pie. I like them plain because they are sweet enough as is but DH likes the traditional butter and syrup route. I believe maple syrup just covers up the pumpkin taste. Very good!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
Love, love, love this recipe. Simple, easy, and convenient. The recipe also works well with leg and thigh quarters as well as split breasts. Make sure you keep the skin on. It helps with the flavor and protects the meat from drying out. Besides, you can always peel it off before serving and/or eating. Great recipe :o)

Overnight Raisin Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Really good pancakes. DH and I made them for overnight company and they went over really well. I'm giving it only four stars because I used regular milk and omitted the raisins (I don't like them). I also used 3/4 tsp cinnamon and about a 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg. With these changes, for us, its definitley five stars :o) We're thinking of using dried cranberries in the raisins' stead and adding pecans or walnuts. We were also thinking of using chopped dried apples and letting them soak with the oatmeal.

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
I had full intentions of following this recipe to a "T" but alas, I had no bread crumbs! Or crackers! But I did have potato flakes and used extra in place of the bread crumbs. Turned out phenomenal! Nice crispy crust. I'll give it 5+ stars for that but since I didn't use bread crumbs, I gave it 4. Great, great recipe! Will definitely use again (potato flakes and all!).

Coffee Icing

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
Very tasty recipe and very easy. DH, DG, and I like really strong coffee flavor so I boiled 1/4 cup of water and added a 1 1/2 tablespoons of instant coffee; I only used about 3 tablespoons of this. Also, I only used about 3 tablespoons partially melted butter instead of a quarter cup (I thought I had a quarter but apparently not). Whipped up nicely and spread pretty well on the chocolate cinnamon sheet cake I made. Will definitely use again!
