Stephanie's Freezer Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This recipe was really good. I cut the recipe in half b/c that was all the tomatoes that I had. I needed a way to use my tomatoes and ones that a friend gave me. I did cook on low for about 6 hours. I omitted the bell pepper b/c my family doesn't like them. I added extra garlic (b/c we love garlic, I roasted it first and used the whole head) and some red pepper flakes. I used my Braun hand mixer to puree the sauce. I used the whole can of tomato paste. It is a very good sauce. Tastes like a basic sauce, but better than the jarred stuff. I froze in 3 ziplock freezer bags for later. ********Update: I made this again. Just a week later. This time I used the full 16 cups of tomatoes. Well a little over. I bought over 5 lbs of plum tomatoes. I still left out the bell pepper, and added about 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes, 2 bay leaves, and 2 heads roasted garlic (drizzle with olive oil and cook 35 min. in 400 degree oven, squeeze out garlic). I followed the rest of the ingredients exactly. I left it on low in the crockpot for 8 hours. When I came home it smelled like an italian resturant. I removed the bay leaves and pureed the sauce with my Braun hand mixer to make it smooth adn added 1 can of tomato paste. It made about 3 1/2 quarts. I plan on freezing it. My last batch is gone already. It was excellent! I made spagetti and meatballs and eggplant lasagna with the sauce last time.

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
I can't believe this worked. I have made this twice. My son loves it. It tastes like air popped popcorn. The second time I cut the kernels to 1/3 cup. 1/2 cup had too many wasted kernels. I might even cut it to 1/4 cup next time. It filled a brown lunch bag. We added some salt before serving. UPDATE: I made kettle corn. I put 1/4 cup kernels, 1/2 tsp oil, 1 Tbs sugar. Popped in brown bag until popping slowed. There were hardly any kernels unpopped. Added some sea salt to taste while hot. YUM! Tastes just like the Kettle Corn you get at the fairs!(Definately think 1/4 cup kernels is perfect for my microwave and paper bags.

Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
These were very good. I made them to bring to a party. It agree with other reviewers, a pastry tip would have made it easier to fill. I used a plastic bag with an end cut off. I topped them off with milk chocolate. I put that in a small plastic bag too and drizzled it over the top. They look like it took me a long time to make, but it was a quick and easy dessert. YUM!

Ghirardelli Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
They were flat on the edges and puffier in the middle. Nothing like the picture. I added 2 tbs more flour to the rest of the batter. They came out a little too thick and had a flour taste. Guess I need to play with the flour if I want to make these again. I bake a lot! There are no eggs in this recipe, so it is good for anyone making cookies for an egg allergy child. :-) I will continue on my quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

Crisp Lemon Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Everybody loved these. I did add some extra lemon extract. I also cut the recipe in half b/c I was making many different kinds of cookies for a cookout. I used the whole egg (I couldn't figure out how to use half). They were great. Would definately make again. Thanks for a great cookie recipe.

Cherry Pie Filling

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
This was excellent! I cut it in half and used it with the Jenny's Black Forest Cake recipe. Not too sweet, but a perfect complement with chocolate cake! :-) Thanks. Update*** I used 1 1/2 cups cherries, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 Tbs cornstarch. It was the perfect amount to fill a 2 layer black forest cake!

Savory Glazed Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Yum! Got rave reviews. I used 2 1/2 lbs of meat and doubled the rest of the recipe (1 medium onion chopped fine). Left out the milk and baked them (so no crisco needed) I used 1 large jar of Smuckers Jelly and 2 bottles Heinz chili sauce. Heated the sauce on the stove for a few minutes to melt the jelly and then threw it in the crockpot on high for 1 hour. Then I let is sit for another 3 1/2 hours before the party. I had lots of chicken left, but no meatballs. I was really looking forward to leftovers, oh well guess everyone liked them. :-)

Mushroom-Stuffed Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
This was excellent. I marinaded the meat in wochestershire sauce, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. I used sirlion cut in strips instead of tenderloin. I used precooked bacon (4 strips) and used some beef broth as liquid to cut calories. I only used 1/2 cup bread crumbs and skipped the cheese. I used dried parsley (a little less than a tbs). I used 1 Tbs minced garlic and 2 Tbs minced onion. After cooking the mushroom mixture, I chopped it in a hand chopper, and did the same for the bacon. I added the beef broth as needed, just to make the stuffing moist. I split in 3 parts and spread on sirlions, then I rolled them up. I cooked for 10 minutes uncovered and then 15 minutes covered on convection at 350. It came out perfect. I cut some ingredients to make it healthier. This was a great meal!

Korean Barbequed Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
Would not make again. There are many other Korean recipies on here that are much better. Try the Korean BBQ chicken. My family liked the marinade better and beef and chicken.

Oven Roasted Greek Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
This recipe was very good. I didn't cook the potatoes long enough, but that was my fault. I will definately make it again. I didn't have lemon pepper, so I added a little extra lemon. It was really good anyway.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
These were very good. I burned the 1st batch... Here's a few tips. Don't put more than one tray in the oven. Don't bake more than 8 minutes. My second tray could have been in for 7 minutes. Freeze opened peanut butter cups. If you don't have time to wait for them to cool, put in the fridge.

Sesame Shrimp Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
This was really good. I made a few changes b/c I didn't have everything on hand. I added 1/3 tsp ginger and cayenne pepper, 4 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup sweet onion chopped. I followed other's advice and used canola oil instead of sesame oil. I did sprinkle a little sesame oil on top at the end. I used 2 tbs plum sauce and 1 tbs soy sauce instead of teriyaki sauce. I also added about 1 tsp chili garlic sauce for some extra kick. I didn't use pepper b/c we don't like them but I did add broccoli. I cut the cornstarch to 1 heaping tsp and I omitted the salt. This was great over noodles.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I cooked it for 12 hours on low. It fell apart. Didn't need any longer. I bought a pot roast. I used 1/3 cup soy and then filled the 1/3 cup half way with worcheshire sauce. It was very good.

Awesome Slow Cooker Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
The sauce was good. It was spicy. I cooked it in the crock pot and then in the oven. They didn't crisp up but were still good. There was plenty of sauce, so no need for the extra bottle of hot sauce.

Wilderness Place Lodge Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
These were very good. I was out of vanilla extract, so I used coconut extract. Other than that followed the recipe exactly. I used a medium cookie scoop and got 28 cookies (I cut the recipe to 15 for serving size). I did have to flatten them slightly. I don't understand the reviews that people said they came out flat. They were chewy and really good! I would make these again!
