Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
I cut this in half and used fresh broccoli, but otherwise made it as written. It was quick, easy and absolutely delicious. I don't know why everyone is omitting the nutmeg, you don't really taste it.. it's there to enhance the other flavors, not to take center stage.

Easy Vegetable Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
Had to change this due to necessity; made home-made 'cream of chicken' soup and doubled the filling. I omitted the bottom crust and replaced the top crust with home-made biscuit. I used all of the same vegetables and seasoning. It was delicious and everyone cleaned their plates.

Creamed Cabbage

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
This was simple, different and delicious. I had to skip the flour and added pepper and garlic powder. Came out perfect. I have to agree with Kathleen, this really is the best cabbage recipe that I've ever tried.

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
Replace the oil with an equal amount of applesauce and the sugar with 4tbsp of Truvia, and these are actually good for you. I don't feel guilty about these AT ALL. Thanks for the recipe! Oh, I also used Kidney beans cause I didn't have black. They're fine.

Cheddar Chicken Spirals

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
This was very, very good. I had to make a substitution based on allergy, so instead of mayo I used plain yogurt. It also had the added bonuses of requiring less milk and siginificantly lowering the calories. I also added 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Will deifinitely be doing this again. Used tiny bowties because the kids like them.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
I had to change this because I didn't have two of the ingredients.. so this is what I did. I substituted the cup of butter with an additional cup of peanut butter, and I completely omitted the brown sugar. I had to add a splash of milk to make it the proper consistansy and then I had to get in there and mix it with my hands because it was so thick... but it made 40 cookies out of 1 inch balls, and I couldn't be happier with the flavor. These were plenty sweet and peanut-buttery!

Cheater Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
Change it to 1c brown, 1c white sugar and throw in a tab of butter at the end and this tastes exactly like Mrs. Butterworth's.. except without all the High Fructose Corn Syrup...

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
Following the recipe exactly, I got 13 pancakes using the 1/4c measure. They were fluffy and delicious and are my new favorite pancake. My family of four only ate 7 of these, so I froze the remaining 6 for simple breakfasts. I honestly cannot wait to have another one tomorrow! The kids practically inhaled these.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
I will never use a boxed brownie mix again. You can knock the prep for these out in less than 5 minutes, and everyone that has tried them absolutely loves them. I made them by the recipe a few times, but have made two changes to suit my familys tastes. Omitting the Vanilla extract makes these taste much more chocolatey. Using Oil instead of melted butter will give you the gooey, chewy texture that you want in a brownie but be warned that it makes the batter much thicker. You will have to spread them into the pan. Also, do NOT over-mix these!! Use a spoon, not a mixer! Only stir until it is all just combined. Over-mixing introduces air into the batter, which makes it more cake-like. We want brownies, not cake!! Finally, I don't think these need the frosting at all. I don't even make it anymore. They are rich and delicious enough without it. I keep bags of the dry portion of this recipe in my pantry so that I can pull it out and add the wet whenever I want brownies quickly.

Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
These were delicious. The texture is very light.. I'm pretty sure if I added garlic powder, oregano and cheddar these would taste exactly like Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I don't understand the bad reviews for this cake. When I make a cake, this is the one I go to all the time. I don't change the ingredients, but I DO change the method, so if anyone is interested I will describe. I grease and flower two 9in cake rounds. Sift all of the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Add the wet ingredients, and stir with a spoon until it's combined. The vinegar will bubble with the baking soda.. it's supposed to. The batter will be thin, but that's normal from what I can tell. Although the recipe calls for a 13x9, when I baked it in that pan it took much longer than called for. In the two 9in rounds, 30 minutes is perfect. The cake is moist and there is ABSOLUTELY NO Vinegar taste.. AT ALL. If you want a super duper chocolatey flavor, replace 1c of the water with coffee. I know it sounds weird, but you won't taste the coffee.. only enhanced chocolate. I'm no expert, but like I said.. every time I prepare the cake with this method, it is perfect.

Hamburger Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This soup was really good. I was looking for something to do with Ground Beef other than spaghetti or meat loaf and this really worked well for me. I made it in a slowcooker, and was forced to make a few adjustments due to lack of ingredients: I did not use carrots in the trinity, I instead used green bell pepper. I didn't have bef bouillon so I left it out. I didn't have tomatos or tomato sauce, but what I did have was a can of chunky Hunts spaghetti sauce.. I used that, and canned corn. I used the basil, and skipped the ketchup because I forgot. I can't express just how good this soup came out. I saw "Hamburger Soup" and did not have high hopes.. but I was proven wrong. I apologize for the revisions I was forced to make, but I doubt it would have tasted much different had I followed it exactly. This is a great soup and I encourage everyone to give it a try. Great on a cold rainy winter night with a nice hunk of crusty bread.

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I cut the servings down to 6 and made these in a cupcake pan. It reduced teh water to 1/4 cup and 2 tbsp. I substituted the last two tbsp of water for strong coffee. These were really good, not crumbly at all. You'd never miss the egg.

Christmas Morning Frittata

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I can't give this recipe 5 stars because, as it is, there is way too much parsley. Also, I had chopped up the tomatoes and realised I forgot to add them until I had already put it in the oven. Other than forgetting those, and halving the parsley this was a great recipe.

Shortbread Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
These cookies were pretty good, but I can't give it 5 stars because they definitely do not taste like shortbread cookies. I don't know if it's the recipe, or maybe something I did. I hand-mixed them because I didn't want to pull out the terrible, really loud hand mixer that I had. You really have to do it by hand once you put all that flour in. I rolled it out, cut it into rounds and got about 2 dozen decent sized cookies out of the recipe. They aren't super sweet, just perfect.. I put purple sugar on half of them because my 2 year old thought it was pretty. But, like I said. They're good cookies, just don't taste like Shortbread.

Mom's Fried Fish

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
This recipe wasn't bad. I did add a little lemon pepper to the coating, though. It was pretty good.. there wasn't so much crumb that you lost the taste of the fish that you're trying to eat. I had to add about 1/4 tsp of dill pickle juice to the tartar sauce, which made it perfect as far as I'm concerned.

Very Chocolate Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
This is hands down the best brownie recipe I have ever used. I used to use the 'Best Brownies' recipe on this site, but wasn't happy with the texture. They were way too much like cake. These brownies are much more brownie like.. chewy and extremely chocolatey without being overly sweet. I followed the recipe exactly, except for halving it. This will definitely be my brownie recipe from now on!
