Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Ok, I accidentally perfected it! I have made this twice before and loved it. This recipie as/is is great, but this time on accident I meant to put the 3 tsp of cinnamon and instead I did 1 1/2 TBSP. (I thought my 1/2 tbsp was a tsp) Well, it turned out great. Also this time instead I was making it for my husband and he isn't a big nut lover so I replaced the walnuts for 1 1/2 cups of oatmeal to give it texture. Yum!!! I did a struessel on top to stick with the oats theme and that was the perfect way to "top it off"!(topping 2c. oats, 3/4c. flour, 1c. brown sugar, 1tsp cinnamon, 3/4 c. butter and mix)

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
Absolutey delightful. My husband and I both do not like our meals to be super sweet, and we thought this had a great balance between sweet and sour. I did double the sauce as a lot of viewers had recommended, but I switched the green bell pepper for a red bell pepper and I chopped up an onion into the sauce too. This combo worked out great and there was plenty of sauce! I also added 1/2 tsp of cracked red pepper and 1/2 tsp black pepper into the sauce to give it a little kick! We loved this and I will definately be making it again.

Vegetable Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I am giving it a 5 with the changes made. Little more soy sauce, rice under cooked a bit, no peas but I used carrots, onion, garlic, 1/2 green bell, corn and crushed red pepper. Very good this way.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
I didn't even have buttermilk and I am still giving these 5 stars! I substituted the buttermilk and milk for 1 1/2 cups half and half, and 2 cups milk, totaling in the 3 1/2 cups of milks. This turned out great, but I am excited to try it with the correct ingredients. My 5 year old ate 5 and my 3 year old ate 4! They weren't done either, I had to cut them off!!

Dessertlover's Classic Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This is the perfect "base" recipie! I did use half brown sugar and half white sugar to give it a little bit more chew. Also, I was using this caramel for a topping on my Snickers Brownies so I added about 1 cup of marshmallows at the end with the cream to give the sauce a bit of the nougat taste that I was looking for. This sauce turned out great!

Sunshine Halibut

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
This was better than I had expected, it was great (the second time!). I did change it up a bit just by adding about a half cup of orange juice, 1 tbsp zest, and salt and pepper to saute the onions and garlic in, which was a good help. The first time I made this is was not quite enough flavor, so with the added juice, seasonings and zest, the flavors really improved. I didn't use any oil, just because the added fat isn't necessary but when my skillet came up almost dry I added a touch of water (2 tbsp). Also, I did put a good amount of lemon pepper, salt and garlic powder on the fish. I topped it with the onions mixture and juices and then let it all sit covered in my fridge for 4 hours before I cooked it. Like I said, it was great! Hope this helps.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
I made 18 FANTASTIC muffins with this recipie! They were super moist, with just the right texture. I had 4 mid-sized bananas and that was just the right amount! I also put 1/3 cup applesauce and vanilla into the wet mixture and cinnamon, nutmeg and a tiny bit of ground ginger into the dry mixture. Also, I substituted half of the flour for whole wheat flour which turned out perfect! I highly recommend doing this. For a different addition, this time I added white chocolate chips and that was super amazing too. My husband DOES NOT like chocolate (weird, I know) but he'll sometimes go for the white. He LOVES these muffins/bread with the white chocolate chips! I did a crumb topping on the top of the muffins too. 1/4 cup flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp water. Mix up and make it crumbly and top before you bake for a nice crunchy crumble. I'm sure this would be good on the bread too, but I haven't tried it yet. Hope this helps!

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
I didn't use any oil or butter b/c I can not have them right now, and this recipie still tasted great! So, if you are into more of a "fat free" type of a meal, then just add a bit of water instead of the oil and butter. Don't get me wrong, I am sure the recipie is even better with the oils, it just has to be! I loved how easy this was too. I served it with skewered mushrooms, grape tomatoes, and onions that I sprayed lightly with water on the grill and then sprinkled salt over the wet veggies to help it stick to them a bit better. The onions take about 5 minutes longer than everything else, so start them early!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I have made this perfect soup a couple of times. First time, straight as the recipie calls-and trust me, it is fabulous that way. I did want a little meat and veggies in it this last time that I made it. I started by roasting all of my tomatoes (slice in half length-wise and set on pan cut side up. drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt), a red bell pepper and 5 cloves of garlic. Broil for about 15 minutes or until the skin is darkened, place the red bell in a paper bag for about 10-15 minutes and the skin will fall off. I ground up some sausage in a skillet put it in the slow cooker. Then I cooked an onion, and finely chopped green cabbage in the sausage drippings. I pured the veggies with the tomatoes and added them to my slow cooker. Also, I used V8 juice instead of tomato juice because I was going with the "veggie" them. I always use the heavy cream, mostly because it tastes so amazing. Once again, it turned out great! I serve this with a loaf of french bread sliced length-wise. Spread with a good pesto sauce on both open faces. Lay with sliced tomatoes and then sprinkle with mozzerella. Broil on low. Hope this helps :)

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
What a true DELIGHT! These are perfect. I am not a fan of ginger cookies at all, but my husband has been begging me to make some...WOW! I LOVE them. I liked the dough, I liked the cookies hot, just out of the oven and I liked them 4 days old and almost ctunchy! They are SUPER yummy. Thanks Amy :).

Pumpkin Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
I made this but separated the batch into 2, sugar free and "as is". Both turned out great! I got huge raves from the people at the party! They loved the regular version, but still thought the sugar-free was very good as well. Here is what I did. First off, there is a canned pumpkin shortage apparently and I could NOT find it anywhere. I used fresh, real pumpkin by cutting out a 6" x 6" chunk and microwaving it for about 18 minutes until the flesh was nice and soft. (I would've baked it, but I was out of time!) Skined the pumpkin and put it into my blender/food processor with the softened cream cheese and spices. I pureed them all together and separated it into 2 bowls. One bowl I added 1 cup of powdered sugar and the other I added 7 tsp of Stevia. I let them both set up in the fridge for an hour before serving with Big Soft Ginger Cookies (from this site) and granny smith apples. The sugar free recipie was obviously a little bit runny, so next time I think I will add a bit of clear fiber just to thicken it a bit. The rest of my pumpkin I baked @ 350 for 30 minutes before pureeing it and freezing in 2 cup portions. Hope this helps.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This one is definately worth the 5 stars! I added 1 cup frozen corn kernals to my batter at the very end. I also made muffins instead of bread. I baked mine at 400 for 20-22 minutes. The batch made 12 big and delicious muffins.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
Great as a meaty chili base. I do have one question though, Where is the GARLIC? I added about 1 TBSP minced garlic and it turned out perfect! Can't wait to try adding corn and other things too!

Apple Coffee Cake Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
I am giving this 5 stars because it was so close to perfection! The only thing I did different was substituted brown sugar for the white sugar in the crust. In crusts that I have made before I know this is essential and makes quite a difference. Once again I wasn't let down. The crust had a great texture and was sweet w/o being over the top. All the rest of the toppings were perfect and super yummy! I made this for a brunch and it was the hit of the party! I recommend this to anyone who likes to "show off" their food when they serve it. My husband did say it would be good with raisins added....I'm not a raisin fan, but if you are go for it!
