Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
I'm not sure what to think, the texture of the cookie is not what I was expecting. It came out moist and chewy, but it was more like a brittle texture. Hard to explain. After baking, I put the rest of the dough in the fridge to see if that would help, but it didn't. I probably won't make again, but they aren't bad.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
One of our go-to meals. Made this several times, both using homemade sauce of my own and jarred Alfredo sauce. I love to add in extra pesto as well as mushrooms and other vegetables I have on hand. Works well with any pasta type!

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I gave 4 stars because of revising it to my tastes, or I should say what I learned from my grandmothers. This is a traditional staple for my background at the dinner table. I cooked mine in the oven on 350 for an hour. I also doubled the sauce and added garlic to the sauce. I added Worcestershire sauce to both the sauce and the ground beef. From my grandmother's recipe, you add sauerkraut to the bottom leaves before placing the rolls down and then add sauerkraut after adding the sauce and then cover it with cabbage leaves. I then lock it all in with foil. Overall, a family favorite and will be passing it down for many more generations.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
This is my go-to chocolate buttercream recipe. You have to tweak it to your liking, but usually the recipe as is works great. I sometimes like it with more chocolate and so I'll up the cocoa powder by a tablespoon or two. I like to use evaporated milk over regular milk, or if you use regular milk use whole milk.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2014
I've been using this recipe for the past year or so, but I had to make some changes, because on it's own it's only okay. I usually add 1-2 eggs, depending how much bread I use. I toast half of my bread cubes for some texture. I like to add extra seasonings to the poultry seasoning, sometimes rosemary, sometimes parsley, and sometimes thyme, and then sometimes all of them. This recipe is a good starting point, but I do think you need to expand upon it to make it a "wow" stuffing/dressing. I would recommend adding the broth/stock a little at a time to your liking. I like mine moist, but with eggs I never use a full 1 cup of broth.

Peach Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
This recipe was good, but I don't think I would make it often. I do feel it needs a glaze, so I made one and it helped with the moisture of the cake. I think next time I will use more peach for the filling, because the amount I used didn't distribute evenly, which was about 3 fresh peaches. Next time I'll use canned or a couple more peaches. A good recipe, but not great.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: May 30, 2014
Good base recipe, but there need's to be a little salt to bring out the butter in the crust as well as more lemon to the custard. I use about 1/2 cup to make it to my liking.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
I gave this four stars because I felt there was too much cinnamon, but I am not a huge cinnamon lover. Next time I will reduce to 1 teaspoon cinnamon. I felt they were a bit sweet, even after I reduced the sugar to just one cup. I might try a combination of white and brown sugar or even honey next time. Overall, a very good and healthy muffin. I'll be making this again with some modifications.

Easy Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2013
Very easy base recipe. From this recipe you can really expand the horizons. I didn't substitute anything, but I did add some salt and pepper, and brushed them with melted butter before putting in the oven. They only took about 15 minutes in my oven, but my oven runs hotter. I'll be putting this in my recipe book. There's many things you can do with just this recipe.

Lemon Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
I pretty much followed the recipe to a T. I used all-purpose and just added a teaspoon of baking powder like the others suggested. I added a little more lemon, I had a couple large lemons and didn't want to waste them. They came out perfect. They were a hit with everyone I shared them with. I paired it with the lemon cream cheese frosting recipe also on allrecipes and added a raspberry filling. So delicious!

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
I thought this was a good base for enchilada sauce. For me, I felt it needed more spice, so I added more chili powder. I also went for a thicker sauce, so I used tomato paste versus tomato sauce. Overall a good recipe and I'll use it again in the future.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I really enjoy this recipe and for the past year has become my go-to recipe. However, I do not use beer and just substitute with either water or chicken stock and it still tastes great. We just don't drink alcohol and use what's on hand. I also use kidney beans versus chili beans. I omit the cayenne to reduce the spiciness of the chili. I always make this chili and it's a hit with everyone. I definitely recommend this recipe to anyone looking for a go-to Chili recipe!

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I liked it, but it was lacking something. Next time I think I will add vanilla and tweak it a bit. It was just okay.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
I added an extra 1/4 Cup of flour as well as peanut butter. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla, because I think it enhances the flavors, and I threw in some peanut butter chips for extra peanut butter flavor. I baked for 10 minutes for the first batch and then 9 minutes for the following batches. I refrigerated my dough overnight. They turned out fabulous.

Linda's Monster Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
I gave this 4-stars because I made my own revisions. I substituted peanut butter for the margarine and added only 3 cups versus the 4 cups of rolled oats. I also recommend not making them real big like some said. They spread out and if you make them with an icecream scoop it is a good size. I also baked at 325 versus 350 and found it cooked them more evenly. By making them real big I got 2 1/2 dozen versus the 6 stated. This is my new go-to monster cookie recipe. I may add raisins next time as well. What's not to love, you get 4 of your favorite cookies rolled into one!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
I marinated the chicken with salt, pepper, and fajita seasoning mix. Then sauteed the chicken until it was cooked. I added 1 can of cream of chicken, and 1 can of cream of mushroom. Only added half the can of green chiles because I wasn't sure how they tasted. I also added some of the sauce to the inside of the tortilla, along with a little cheese. The finished product was AMAZING! My fiance hates chicken but fell in love with this recipe! Thanks!!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
Made this for the first time this evening. I'm glad I tried it before I frosted it. It was not that good. It needs some tweaking for sure. Will not use this recipe again, but will adapt it or go with a completely different recipe.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
Made this recipe as is and we loved it! I'm going to try a few of the suggestions next time as well, like adding a touch of honey to the dough. Will definitely keep this and make from now on.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
I like the concept, but I think it needs tweaked. You definitely need to strain the water from the zucchini. Mine were still a tad soggy despite doing this, so next time I will add more flour or breadcrumbs to counteract that. I also went ahead and added some fresh basil since I had some I needed to use. Very tasty with marinara sauce. I'll make again, but I'll tweak it more next time.

Steak Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
We left out the hot sauce, but for the base it's a good substitute. I don't like buying steak sauce since it hardly gets used and goes to waste. We did find the ketchup to be overpowering, so we used a little more Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and spice to counterbalance it. Next time I will use less ketchup and add more if need be.
