Jack's Beanie-Weenies

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I made this for more than 10 people. Some who love beer loved it and I didn't care for it (I don't like beer). Since the recipe author said she and her sister loved it as a child, I gave them to my kids but they spit them out. So I gave it a 3 star review because of the split reactions from my people. This might be a great tail gate recipe for people who love drinking beer.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
We normally don't like sloppy joes but I made this for friends who got together to help us put a swing set together. Everyone like it a lot including my hubby who doesn't like sloppy joes too much because it's too sweet. I made it with organic ketchup which has less sugar than the normal ketchup. If I were to make this with normal ketchup, I would reduce the amount of brown sugar even more so it's not so sweet. Also, I used very good quality garlic powder (makes a huge difference). A keeper!

Chipotle Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
This was a great recipe. I made it for a get together we had yesterday and everyone came back for more. Even our 5-year-old liked it so much he ate it twice yesterday. I had to add 1 more cup of milk than the recipe calls for, hence, 4 stars instead of 5 or would have been perfect. For those who don't like it spicy or hot, I would reduce the amount of chipotle chiles to 1 or 2. But it added a little kick that a typical mac & cheese recipe doesn't have and made it GREAT!

Cucumber Tomato Salad with Zucchini and Black Olives in Lemon Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
The salad tasted good but it had way too much dressing for our taste... Next time I will only use 1/2 the dressing to see how it tastes first. FYI, we are one of those people who only use 1/2 of the dressing if we eat out at a restaurant.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
It's very easy to prepare and tastes good so I have made this so many times over the past years (probably more than 5 years)that I don't even remember. But over the years, I learned to adjust to the following: use 50% of the salt, double the garlic (we love garlic) and use 2 Table spoons of olive oil. I also serve this over rice. Families and friends like it.

Apple Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Very good. I made it exactly how the recipe was written. However, I thought they were too sweet for our taste (even though I used Granny Smith which are more tart than other sweet apples) so next time, I will cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup or 1/2 cup and see.

Chunky Monkey Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
Very good, didn't add sugar or salt (used salted butter) and it was perfect. Had I added more sugar, it would have been way too sweet. Thanks for the recipe.

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
This is a great recipe. We enjoyed it quite a bit. I do agree with other reviewers about the recipe for the sprinkle being too much. I used all of it and we couldn't believe how strong it was. We had to take some fish out to make it okay for us to eat. Next time, I would only use 1/4 to 1/3 of the recipe. The salsa was excellent, I couldn't believe how good it was since it only has lime and cilantro leaves to taste it with. I found jicama in my not so ethnic grocery store in a section where they sell fresh hot peppers instead of other produce section. I also used multi grain flour tortillas instead of corn tortillas. Yummy, definitely will be a repeat.

Spicy Italian Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Very good salad, used olive oil instead of canola oil. I also used only a half the dressing and it was great!

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Very good salad, I did think that it made way too much dressing for the salad. In fact, next time, I would only use 1/4 of the dressing. Thanks for the recipe!

Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I tried to make this in my bread machine, it ended up creating a huge mess. I didn't read all the reviews before I made this. If this recipe is written for a bread machine, would you consider modifying it so people like me who don't always have time to read all the reviews wouldn't end up cleaning up the bread machine? I couldn't finish making these since my dough was completely wet and messy.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
These are the best, they are so yummy. Since I didn't have a big enough surface to make one huge rectangle shape, I cut the dough in half and made 2 rectangles and still rolled it the way I would have if they were big. Worked out perfectly and they were so good this is a keeper recipe.

Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Ranch Seasoning

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
While it was easy to make, we weren't very impressed with this meatloaf recipe. The flavor is kind of bland and it turned out kind of dry for our taste. I think the fried onion breading absorbed all the moisture. Next time, I will try with the whole packet of ranch dressing seasoning and less (maybe half) fried onions. I might add some fresh onions to make up for the lost half.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I made these for my family for dinner tonight. Both of my kids and my husband liked it. It turned out moist. But be sure you like the A-1 steak sauce if you are making it because you taste it a lot more than anything else. Next time, I will cut down on the amount of A-1 so I can taste the other stuff more.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I made these to serve with chili. They were good by themselves but not with chili since they were sweet. Will make them again. They will probably make good cornbread muffins, too.

Swedish Meatballs II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I just made these for kids' lunch. They turned out pretty good and we liked them. I did make the following changes. I doubled the sauce (and feel like should have even made more). We like a lot of sauce. Also, I used whole wheat dried bread crumbs instead of regular. I think it added more flavor as whole wheat has more flavor than the white bread. Overall, we liked them. They were easy and quick to make, I will make them again.
