Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
These are very good! I used a Duncan Hines brand dark chocolate cake mix, only 1/3 cup of oil, and omitted the raisins because we don't like raisins in our cookies. I baked them in my mini muffin pan for 10 minutes and they turned out fabulous. I love the addition of oats. It gives these cookies some body and texture. Thanks for a great recipe!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Oh my goodness! These are SO good! Per other reviewers' suggestions, I added 1 tsp of baking powder, but I think I'll scale that back a bit next time because they got too fluffy. I told my kids I was making brownies with a "secret ingredient" and made them stay out of the kitchen while I was mixing them up. When they had cooled a bit, I let the kids taste them and, after they said they liked them a LOT, I showed them the bean can. They about fell over from surprise! Thanks for a great recipe!!

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I made two loaves of bread instead of rolls with this. It turned out REALLY good! Following advice I once saw on an episode of Alton Brown's show on TV Food Network, I spritzed the loaves with water every 5 minutes while they were baking. This resulted in a nice chewy crust. Next time I think I'll use olive oil instead of vegetable oil to make the flavor even better. Thanks for a great bread recipe!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
Very good pancakes! They came out fluffy and perfectly golden brown. I did add a smidge more milk (1/4 cup at most) because we like thinner pancakes and I reduced the salt to 3/4 teaspoon as suggested by other reviewers. Next time I will add mini chocolate chips and top with whipped cream for a special treat!

Sex in a Pan II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
This was very good. I added about 1/4 cup of sugar to the crust because we prefer a sweetened shortbread crust. I also omitted the walnuts, because I was taking this dish to my parents' house and my mom is allergic to walnuts. I also doubled the amount of whipped topping to make the cream cheese layer a bit less heavy/thick.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Very good pizza sauce! I omitted the honey, but added a little bit of white sugar to counter the acidity from the tomatoes. I also reduced the amount of cayenne and pepper flakes by about half, because my family doesn't like a hot/spicy pizza sauce. This made just enough to cover a pizza made in my jelly roll pan. I used the Pizza Crust I recipe from this site as the base and topped it with mozzarella and pepperoni.

Pizza Crust I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Very good pizza crust! My father is 100% Italian, originally from New York and even he loved it! The crust was the first thing he commented on. I paired it with Exquisite Pizza Sauce from this site.

Apple Fritters II

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
These turned out pretty tasty after I made a couple of changes. I doubled the flour and sugar, because the batter was WAY too thin. After reading the reviews, I also added 1 Tbs of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp baking powder. Still not exactly what we're looking for (a donut shop type apple fritter), but still good enough that we ate them all!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
This really is the best bread machine recipe I've come across. I did substitute 1/4 cup of flax meal for 1/4 cup of the flour, but followed the recipe otherwise. The bread rose very nicely and turned out light and fluffy. I'll definitely make this one again.

Crusty Potato Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
This turned out really good! I modified the recipe a bit to make it a little healthier. I substituted 1 cup whole wheat bread flour, 2 cups white bread flour, and 1/4 cup ground flax meal for the 3-1/4 cups of bread flour in the recipe. Also, my bread machine failed on me, so I mixed and kneaded this by hand, let it rise, punched it down, put in a greased loaf pan, let it rise again, and baked it at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
WOW! This is SO good! I, too, used a whole package of bacon (I think mine was 12 ounces) and took it out of the pan after it was done cooking so it would stay crisp. I wilted the spinach in the skillet instead of in the colander as well. I will definitely be making this one again!

Special Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
This was very good. Instead of relish, I chopped up a couple of kosher dill pickle spears and threw that in. I whirled everything in the food processor for a minute or two. We made sandwiches on home made wheat bread. YUM!

Country White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This turned out very good. I made one loaf, 7 dinner/hamburger rolls, and 10 cinnamon rolls with one recipe! I used the filling from Clone of a Cinnabon and just mixed canned vanilla frosting with some cream cheese to top the cinnamon rolls. YUMMMM!

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
Great recipe! The bread turned out light and fluffy and tasted awesome. Since I only have one loaf pan at the moment, I scaled the recipe down to 19 servings, which resulted in using 1 whole packet of yeast. Also, I discovered I was out of honey, so I substituted brown sugar, using 2 Tbs for each of the two measurements. I'm DEFINITELY going to buy more loaf pans so I can make the full recipe next time.

Mashed Potato Hot Dish

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Just got done hogging down a plateful of this. It's really good! I used ground turkey instead of ground beef because of personal preference. Since ground turkey can be a little bland, I seasoned it with adobo, cumin, and cayenne before mixing in the cream of chicken soup and beans. Also, had to use canned green beans because I didn't have any frozen. I'll definitely make this again.

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
As a former carney, I LOVE these! The one thing I miss most about being a part of a traveling carnival company is the hand-dipped corn dogs. I have a couple of suggestions for achieving corn dog perfection: 1) Dry the hot dogs with a paper towel before dipping them in the batter. This way, you don't need to coat them with flour or anything before dipping. 2) Make sure your batter is ICE COLD. This will make it thicker and it will resist "melting" off into the oil before it firms up from frying. 3) Use regular Farmer John hot dogs...not the all-beef kind (that's what the carnival food wagons all use!). 4) Omit the black pepper from this recipe. It's not needed.

These are even better if you use the cornbread stick dough.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This was super yummy. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and added some of the water from the whole kernel corn, which really made it nice and moist. I think next time I will also add a can of diced green chiles and some crumbled cooked bacon. We served this with green beans and the Spicy Chicken Breasts from this site.

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
These turned out very flavorful and delicious. I'm a huge fan of caramelized onions anyway, but never would have thought of making pork chops like this. Because of reviewers saying the recipe measurements created a dish that was too salty and peppery, I didn't measure the seasoning salt and pepper. I just sprinkled the seasonings on both sides of the pork chops how I usually would and went from there. Also, I didn't need to add any water for the second half of the recipe, because the pork chops had released enough juices on their own. We served this with buttered peas and four-cheese mashed potatoes.

Frogmore Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
Excellent recipe! Because of other reviewers saying the flavor was bland, I added an onion cut into wedges as well as some extra Old Bay and some salt. I don't think it needed the extra salt, though, so I'll leave it out next time. I do agree, though, that the corn needs to be added to the water first, then the other ingredients. The kids loved getting to eat straight off the newspaper with their hands. We will definitely be having this again.
