Tea Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2014
Those were SUPER easy!! I whipped 'm up in 10 mins to go with my pot roast. I followed the recipe and added a few shakes of dried chives and about 2/3 cup of shredded Colby Jack cheese. I do not have a biscuit cutter so I just used the cap of my cooking spray...worked like a charm! :)

Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2014
These were very good, not quite as flavorful as I was anticipating maybe because I didn't use any meat (I like veggie egg rolls) but they were still really good!! I used bagged coleslaw mix, chopped celery, white onion, ground ginger garlic powder (that's all I had) and the sauces (not measured). NO MSG! The wraps were easy to roll and I sealed the edges with an egg/water mixture. Once rolled I made the mistake of leaving them out which caused them to stick together so some tore as I peeled them away from each other. Next time I will put them in the fridge until ready to cook up. Make sure the oil is nice & hot before adding the egg rolls. 3 bags of coleslaw made 30 egg rolls. Next time I will use 4 bags &/or the bean sprouts so they're nice & big!! This is definitely a keeper! :o]

Simple 'N' Delicious Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2014
OMG!!! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone raved about this cake, I will never make any other cake again! The coffee (still warm) gave it a nice deep chocolate flavor. I doubled this recipe to make a 13x9 cake. I used the Creamy Choc Frosting from this site which is amazing as well! Thank you so much for a great choc cake recipe! I look like a super star to my family! :]

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
This dish is phenomenal! I doubled the meatballs and did 1.5 lbs ground beef with .5 lbs ground pork. I used about 22 meatballs and froze the rest for another meal. Also added Italian seasoning. For the sauce I pureed fresh tomatoes from our garden. This was my 11 yr old's bday dinner request she loves it so much!!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
WOW! I will NEVER buy store bought again!!! My family raved about these for days and I have to admit, these were fun to make (and not too hard, in fact, I did them in our camper while up north (WI) - just premeasured the dry ingredients before we left). I omitted the raisins and baked them in a muffin pan (perfect!). I used "The Perfect Cinnamon Roll Icing" from this site. Love the fact that I KNOW what is in these rather than the laboratory stuff. AMAZING!!

Chicken Taco Filling

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2014
Very easy, chicken breasts just fell apart when I went to move them around 1/2 way thru...I was able to shred it right in the crock pot with a fork. I think it just needed a little more flavor. I used 4 breasts and 2 taco seasoning packets with 2 cups broth (which was plenty for the four people it fed and had leftovers). Maybe next time I'll use an extra seasoning packet

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
These were amazing! I quadrupled the recipe to make a huge vat for camping with a small group. I got rave reviews, even my neighbor who claims to not like sloppy joes went back for seconds!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 22, 2014
YUM!!! I used 1.5 boxes of macaroni noodles but kept the sauce ratio about the same (just over-measured on the mayo). I did cut the sugar down to a little shy of a 1/4 C & added a some finely chopped red pepper instead of pimento. VERY happy how this turned out (see my pic). :o]

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2014
OMG!! This frosting is the best we've ever tasted....even better than store bought!! I will NEVER use any other frosting again. Made this for my son's bday cake (using Simple White Cake recipe from this site - yum). My father-in-law raved about my cake for days & said it blows away the other frosting I was using. I used regular milk since I didn't have evaporated milk & it still turned out perfect! The recipe as is covered my entire 13x9 cake leaving leftovers (for licking!!). Thank you SO much!!!! :)

Special Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
Delicious! I substituted butter for the shortening (which I never use because it's loaded with trans fats which are terrible for you)...next time may try applesauce as one review suggested to save on calories. I also didn't add the nutmeg or cloves (only because I didn't have any) and added vanilla. I was going to do 1/2 all purpose & 1/2 whole wheat flour but my daughter used all the all purpose flour the other day & didn't tell me we were out so I used all whole wheat (can't tell the difference in taste anyway - I don't think). Did 1/2 white sugar, 1/2 brown sugar. Very moist with a little crisp to the top which I LOVE and the house smelled incredible for a hours! This is a keeper!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
WOW! I can't believe how good this is! I'm SO against partially hydrogenated oils that the store brands put in their mixes so decided to give this a try and was very pleased. I doubled the recipe for a 13x11 cake and it baked up nicely! Based on other reviews, I made sure to take my time mixing all the ingredients well. I made a green poke cake for St. Patty's day using the Poor Man's Frosting from this site ('cuz store brands have transfats/HFC) and it turned out very good!! See my picture.

Beef and Guinness® Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
WOW! This was amazing! I made it for St. Patty's Day yesterday served with green beer! Hubby said this is the best Irish dish! I doubled the recipe just so we can have left overs and followed it to a 'T' except I didn't measure out the s&p, just generously seasoned the meat with both prior to browning. I also added diced mushrooms and thickened it up a little with flour whisked with water. Served over garlicky red mashed potatoes (see pic) and with the Irish Brown Bread from this site. Even my daughters raved about it! Personally I thought it needed a little more salt so next time may try it with beef stock instead. Love Chef's John's recipes!!! :o]

Poor Man's Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
I was amazed at how simple and tasty this frosting is!! I'm so glad I don't have to buy the trans fat (horrible for you) frosting from the store anymore!!! I know what's going into this frosting. :o]

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
Whipped these up for my kiddies for lunch. SUPER easy + I had everything on hand (bonus!). I love the idea of baking them rather than frying in oil - oil is such a mess & baking is much healthier! These turned out very tasty!! I only had two chicken breasts but it was enough for the four of us...I had a ton of leftover breading. My two older girls didn't rave about them, they said the were good tho. My 2 yr old gobbled them up! I served them with honey-mustard, BBQ & honey (didn't have any ketchup).

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
SUPER easy, very moist & tasty!!! I also added 1 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of ground cinnamon. However, mine didn't rise AT ALL - was maybe 1/2" thick??!! Next time I will double this recipe for 2 OR use this recipe to make 1 loaf.......... 3/6/2014: Just made it again with the recipe as is making one loaf. Still didn't rise a much so maybe adding more flour will help. I have posted a picture of it this time. :o]

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2013
AMAZING!!! I never thought going meatless could be so good! This tastes a lot like Chipotle!! A few changes I made based on some reviews I read were: I doubled this recipe + added 1 can of Rotel, cooked brown rice & omitted the jalapeno (so my daughter would eat it). Also instead of adding the cilantro to the skillet mixture, I put fresh, raw cilantro and shredded moz cheese on top of the warm mixture before rolling the burrito. I didn't add any spices but did add a little extra salt (used Kosher). I also didn't top the burritos with salsa 'cuz I thought it would be a little much. Can't wait for lunchtime (there's just enough left for 1 more). Next time I will quadruple this & add more onion. MmmmmmmmmMMM!! Thanks for a great recipe, this is definitely a keeper. :o]

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
WOW! Simple & tasty!!! I've never made pie before but we recently went apple picking & my family wanted homemade apple pie. I couldn't believe how simple this crust was! I used butter instead of shortening (I never use shortening 'cuz it looks gross, like something that came out of a clogged artery [and probably would some day]!). DOUBLE FOR 1 PIE IF YOU WANT TOP LAYER! To double add: 2 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 teas salt, 1 cup chilled butter and 1/4 cup AND 2 tbs ice water (based on GingerB's 9/03 rating). This one is a keeper for me! I'm not much of a sweet eater so I'd love to try it with a homemade pot pie too. :o]
