Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
Tried SEVERAL times. Even tried other reviewer's suggestions about warming milk, etc and ALWAYS soggy in the middle. Tried cooking lower/longer on the griddle and they end up tough and chewy. The batter is always too thick even adding extra milk or water.

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
I made it with peanut butter between the crackers and using chow mein noodles for the legs.

Chocolate Syrup

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I love this recipe. Sooooo easy anyone can do it and there's no excuse to buy the chemical cocktail from the store called chocolate syrup. The only suggestion I have is to strain it into whatever container you're storing it in. I sift my cocoa and simmer a good long time and always end up with a few "bits" in the bottom. Also, know you're cocoa! I used a blend of natural and "Dutched" cocoa that is the bomb.com but very strong. If don't have a good quality cocoa powder it will effect the end result so take some of the negative reviews with a grain of salt :-)

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
I wasn't sure what to expect but this is one of the best burgers I've EVER had. We had no "meatloaf" texture to our, but they were cooked to well done. Surprisingly, they were still moist! These are no fail.

Cheesy Potatoes I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
This is a good "jumping off point" type recipe. Always good to have for the basic quantities, time and temp. The rest can be what you have on hand - for us, better with some chopped up left over bacon sprinkled on top near the end. Not (5) stars as is for my family. Too bland for our tastes but a good base. The "most helpful" review is really that. It's much better with the addition of the soup and no processed cheese loaf.

Homemade Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
I have tried this a few times. The way it's written (minus imitation maple-read the label), with suggestions of other (longer cooking time, additions of vanilla, butter) and this recipe is just *meh*. I've been looking for a replacement for store bought. I don't care for the price, watery quality or inconsistent flavor of "real" maple syrup. I will keep looking for another recipe. By the way, despite the recommendation to cook longer for thicker syrup, that only works if you use it right away otherwise it will just crystalize.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
These were too done for my liking. Not enough flavor my liking either. I would add more salt, and probably follow another reviewer's suggestion to add crushed garlic at the end. I also wouldn't add the black pepper until the end. If you're new to cooking bruseel sprouts, read a bunch of reviews. Wish I would've followed the advice not to cook quite so long.

Extra-Yummy Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
DO NOT MAKE AS WRITTEN! These were the worst pancakes I ever had. I had saved the recipe and forgotten to re-read the comments and made it as written. That is a ridiculous amount and cinnamon and unless you're training for a cinnamon challenge there is no reason to add that much. It must be a typo that the author of the recipe is not fixing. Aside from that, they are so brown to begin with it's hard to tell when they're, well, brown. I had several that were slimey in the middle even though they were deep golden brown on the outside. Just....gross.....

Ground Turkey Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
Like most recipes, this is a great springboard for ideas and adaptations to your own personal tastes but also good as written.

Orzo and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2013
It was just OK the first time I made it. Needed adjustment to be delicious. Used a mix of butter/olive oil to brown orzo. Added garlic and rice for about 30 secs before adding chicken broth. Added dried parley, chives, paprika and just a small dash of cayenne and tumeric to make it look like the store bought version. Very yummy.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
Total flop. Completely gooey inside. The outside was pretty brown and I think when I tested it it was "crunchy" on the outside it wiped the toothpick clean. After 10 minutes I took it out of the pan and it seemed very...giggly. I waited a couple minutes and decided to cut the end off. Just inside the browned outside...goo. I was going to cut back on the sugar and have a feeling that's what browned it up and crusted up because the "bread" wasn't done at all. What a waste of ingredients.

Baked Parmesan Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
I don't like fish very much but I loved this recipe. I did follow the suggestions of others and reduce the amount of milk mixed with the ranch and used panko instead of regular bread crumbs. We did spray our foil, but it still stuck. Next time we might try the suggestion of baking it on a rack instead of directly on the foil. Very good recipe so we will definitely be making this again!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2012
This recipe should be called "kitchen sink cookies" because you can throw just about anything in there and still get a great cookies. It's a wonderfully flexible recipe that lends itself to customization of what's in the pantry, and what your personal preferences may be. Even beyond that it's a great recipe as written. That's (5) stars!

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
These were so tasty. For those that complain of too salty, or too much seasoning, I suggest analyzing the ingredients you're using. First, I think a brand name ranch mix makes a difference. I've bought several and make my own dressing - they're not all the same. Second, are you using an especially salty cracker? I used Premium crackers. Love them, but don't find them in every store. Last, look at the package of ranch mix. Mine are all 2 ounces. If you use the whole package you're doubling the seasonings. That being said, you can't go wrong with this tasty recipe.

Quinoa Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Not a fan of this recipe. I did cut back on the lemon juice, but still had a funky acidic, um....funk to it. YES, I rinsed the quinoa. I wish some of the people who were creative enough to modify this recipe would post one. That would be easier than having to read through the comments. If you're not a die-hard quinoa fan, don't start with this recipe or at least make with modification other posters listed. I just didn't have those ingredients and was hoping for better results from the original.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
This was sooooo good. I'd been looking for a recipe to try quinoa and this was the only one that really sounded appealling. I cut the recipe in half and used it as a side dish. I added some chopped grape tomatoes with the black beans and added a squeeze of lime. We will definitely be making this again.

Toasted Breadcrumbs

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Great starter recipe. I was trying to find the ratio of crumbs to seasonings, but couldn't find it so I checked this recipe. I also use a jelly roll pan and flip them every so often. I crumble them on the pan and use a rolling pin to get the crumbs.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Omigosh are these good! I'm not much of a baker, but these turned out really well. I used self rising flour because that's what I had and they turned out great. I can see how you could add nuts or chocolate chips but they don't NEED them. They're fantastic on their own. Soooo good!
