Potato Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
I too was VERY skeptical when I saw that you cook these in the micro but it worked! I also was shocked how much flavor just salt & pepper gave them! My micro took way longer (about 7 mins) but they are DELISH (& MUCH healthier)!!! I will definately share this with others! ;o]

World's Best Pasta Sauce!

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
This sauce is the BOMB!!! I made it w/o meat because I was making spinach lasagna (from this website which is the BEST). I made a double batch of this sauce to use the rest later - hubby RAVED about it for days!! :o]

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]

Spinach Lasagna III

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
We just started going meatless during the week (trying it out - to do our part to try to save animals lives + for our health!) and WOW!!...this IS the absolute BEST meatless lasagna EVER!! I made this last night for our anniversary dinner. Even tho we were both stuffed after a few pieces we couldn't stop eating it and then went back for more a few hours later! Even my daughter who can't stand meatless pasta raved about it and wanted seconds. I did make some minor changes based on some of the reviews I read. I bought a 10oz tub of baby spinach. Rinsed it, chopped half of it & sautéed it with the onions, mushrooms, garlic & olive oil (the aroma is incredible). I added an additional 1/2 TBSP of garlic 'cuz we like a lot of garlic. I bought 2 different jars of sauce (Barilla Mushroom and Barilla Roasted Garlic & mixed them - we like a lot of sauce too). I did 4 layers and in between 2 of them added a layer of fresh spinach (not chopped). I layered it like this: sprayed bottom and sides of dish with cooking spray, spread a little sauce on bottom, then added a layer of 5 noodles, cheese mixture, sauce, spinach, shredded moz & shredded parm cheeses, repeat. Darn it, I wish I took a picture...next time. Next time I may do 3 or maybe all 4 layers with the spinach too (rather than just 2 of them). Mmmmmmmmmmm! Can't wait to eat leftovers today!! :o]

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
OMG! This recipe is FABULOUSLY AMAZING!!! I am ashamed that I used to buy jarred alfredo sauce - never again!! This is sooo easy with only a few REAL ingredients! I doubled the recipe and added a little extra garlic & cream. Also added 3 cut up cooked chicken breasts and fresh broccoli - OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! Served with garlic bread. The entire family raved about it & went back for more. I can't wait for lunch (leftovers!!!)! Thanks for such an awesome sauce....Allrecipes ROCKS! :o]

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.

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!

Sloppy Joes II

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!

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]

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).

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]

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. The recipe as is covered my entire 13x9 cake leaving leftovers (for licking!!). Thank you SO much!!!! :)

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]

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]
