Bertolli Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
This is the best lasagna recipe I have made yet! I used liquid egg whites instead of regular eggs because that is what I had and I added some fresh spinach to the recipe. The second time I made it I added some broccoli and pre-cut matchstick carrots to make it a veggie lasagna. I typically cut this recipe in half. My picky husband was pleased with this recipe.

Homemade Apple Cider

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
This is an excellent recipe! I used the same recipe, but I used my juicer to juice the apples instead of heating and simmering them on the stove. I highly recommend using a juicer if you have one, it makes this recipe quick and easy!

Baked Ziti

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I love the simplicity of this recipe. I use fresh mozzarella and I shred it myself, which I recommend over the pre-shredded stuff in the bag, it makes a big different in my opinion. I tossed some extra dried basil into the sauce. This is quick and easy!

Tomato and Pesto Bagel

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I love having this for snack or for breakfast. It is a great combination of basil pesto, tomatos, and cream cheese.

Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
This is the best hot chocolate I have tasted yet. I opted to make mine on the stove instead of the microwave. I also used milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet and I love the cinnamon taste. I think the cinnamon makes this special. I topped with whipped cream, cinnamon and nutmeg. A five star keeper in my book!

Chocolate Spoons

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Excellent idea! I used all milk chocolate. I found it easy to dip by holding a large spoon of chocolate and dipping the spoon into that to cover the bottom and then I spoon the rest of the chocolate over the top.

Creamy Cheesy Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I created this after trying numerous cheesy broccoli soup recipes. I think the dijon mustard is the key to this soup. I sometimes add more cheese, dijon, and fresh cracked pepper to taste and those are things you can easily tweak to your liking. I recommend using only shredded cheese, not processed cheese in this recipe. Serve with some fresh french or sourdough bread or breadbowls and enjoy!

Dipped Fortune Cookie Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This is super easy! You can also easily adjust the amount of chocolate and fortune cookies according to your needs. I mostly used Baker's white chocolate squares, but you can use any white chocolate such as Nestles or Ghiradelli's. As an alternative could also use a white almond bark or vanilla candy melt if you prefer. This is a great snack after a Chinese meal or bring to a party!

Lemon Basil Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This is light, yet flavorful. You can easily adjust the amount of dried basil, salt and pepper to taste. I like to make extra and keep it in the fridge for lunch and leftovers. I get many requests for the this rice.

Simple Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This is fast and simple and when it comes to smoothies, I think simple is better. You can use a variety of juices, not just apple. I have used peach, apple, and white grape before. This is very smooth tasting. No need to blend in ice. I have made extra and stores in a glass bottle in the fridge for a few days.

Daddy's Whisker Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
I added some extra Velveeta cheese and the only the I added was a tablespoon of dijon mustard, which I add to all cheese soups. This is a great recipe, but I probably use a real cheese next time because I am not a fan of the processed cheese. Regardless of my personal preference, this is an excellent recipe and super easy too.

Fudge Puddles

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
I sprayed my pan with baking spray to ensure they wouldn't stick. I used a regular sized cookie scoop and rounded the dough in my hand and dropped into the pan. I made a slight indent in the middle with my finger and baked for 14-15 minutes. I found the cookies were not ready to come out 5 minutes after cooling in the pan and it was better to wait 10 or 15 minutes until they set up all the way, otherwise they are still soft and heavy enough where the rim of the cookie breaks apart from the bottoms and they are ruined. I tried to lightly pry them up with a small knife, but I found rotating them in the pan did the trick and them came out perfect with absolutely no problems at all. When they came out, I used my 1 tsp. measuring spoon to make the indent because I don't have a mellon baller. They are soft, not crumbly, no overfilling or any other issues. Don't skip the exact chocolate filling as written, it really makes this cookie.

Lemon Chicken II

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
This is a full five start elegant lemon chicken recipe. Very easy to make! I loved spooning some of the lemon sauce over my rice too. I may even just make the lemon sauce in the future to use for rice. My batter didn't stick to the chicken really well and a lot of it fried and came off in the oil, but that was okay. When the chicken was close to brown, I cut the chicken with my spatula in the pain. I scooped all of the chicken out of the pain and let rest on a paper towel while I got rid of the oil and extra crusted batter. I put the chicken back in the pan and poured the lemon sauce over and let it heat for about 10 minutes before serving. My picky husband really liked this, it is a keeper.

Self-Rising Flour

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
I am so glad someone suggested this recipe to me on the exchange. It worked perfectly and I am grateful! All ingredients are typical ones you would have on hand where self-rising flour is something that isn't.

S'mores Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
Great! My first time trying a s'mores candy apple. I opted to dip the whole caramel apple in milk chocolate and then put the grahm crackers and marshmallows on. I prefer the more rich, milk chocolate taste because it is my favorite part of a s'more! I used a honey crisp apple. I would make them again and highly recommend them.

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I finally found the BEST peanut butter cookie recipe. My picky husband who loves peanut butter cookies loves them and even I like them and I am not a big peanut butter cookie fan. I made the recipe exactly as written, however, I reduced the temp. to 325 and I baked for nearly 30 minutes. I should also add that I use my 1/4 c. measurung scoop to scoop out a ball of dough to make a larger cookie which comes out to 4 x 4 inches when baked, which is why I bake my cookies for a longer time. Everyone loves the larger cookies and I get many compliments on them! I only bake 3 or 4 at a time and freeze the remaining dough balls for another day when we want fresh cookies.

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
I followed the advice of other reviewers and made this using 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar instead of a full cup of white sugar. I also sprinkled some extra cinnamon in the crumb topping mixture and then again on the top before baking. Great apple crisp!

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
What a great recipe! My family enjoyed this tonight with our vanilla ice cream. I can't wait to try it with a brownie or warm chocolate chip cookie and ice cream next time. This recipe makes a decent amount. I like the gift idea. The World Martket sells great glass jars which I will buy and pour this fudge into for gifts. I am so glad I tried it. UPDATE: I wanted a richer chocolate taste and texture, so I reheated the fudge sauce the following day and I added a good 1/2 cup of additional cocoa powder and now I think this is a perfect fudge sauce that we enjoy and that I would love to share with others. Check out my blog to compare the before and after photos of this fudge sauce.

Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
This was an excellent recipe, mu husband loved it. I only left out the celery because my husband doesn't like it and I opted to bake it in the oven instead of in a sauce pan. I still boiled the peppers in water for 5 minutes, then I stuffed, and baked at 350 for 45 minutes. We will be making this recipe again.
