Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2014
We thought these were GREAT oatmeal raisin cookies. This is now my official Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I followed the recipe as written with the exception of using regular shortening instead of butter-flavored shortening and quicks oats instead of regular rolled. (It's what I had on hand.) I always use my Pampered Chef cookie scoop when making cookies. I used the small scoop (1 tbsp) for the first batch which made small cookies; about 2 bites and required a 10 min baking time. Then for the rest I used my medium scoop (2 tbsp) and this made nice BIG cookies. I preferred them. They needed to bake 14 min and I flattened them slightly by pressing on them with my fingers before putting them in the oven to bake. I ended up with 4 dozen cookies.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
Made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious. Only changes I made were using sirloin instead of chuck roast and omiting the wine. Very simple to make, yet company worthy. This will be added to our dinner rotation.

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
I made these for my son who is a 9 y/o cheese cake lover. He said they were "OK." Not what I had hoped for. But I thought they were pretty darn good! Very, very simple to make. And I love the fact that the recipe can be divided easily to make only 1 or 12 mini-cheesecakes. I think these are perfect when entertaining a large crowd.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
I made these last evening for guests. They were WONDERFUL! Since I was cooking for a crowd, I used 11 chops. Others mentioned not having enough sauce. I tripled the amount, since I essentially was doubling the number of chops called for. It was just the right amount. I did decrease my baking time to 45 min. They were nice and moist, not at all dry. I think you need to factor in the thickness of the chop when determining baking time. This is definitely a keeper.

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
Very, very good. Topped them with cream cheese frosting. These garnered rave reviews. I didn't have time to candy any ginger root and so I just used a little add'l ginger. I like my cupcakes to be uniform in size, so I used my Pampered Chef cookie dough scoops. I used 2 med and 1 sm scoop batter for each cupcake cavity.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
I had dinner guests last evening and actually tried 3 new recipes from allrecipes.com! All were a hit. This green bean recipe was a fantastic. I followed the recipe as written with one exception. The grocery store was out of fresh green beans. I purchased a "family size" bag of frozen greens and used those in place of the fresh. I believe it was a 20 oz bag. All of the adults really liked this dish. This is a keeper. The tomatoes really make this dish unique.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
I so wanted to like these. I really did! I had hoped that they could become a staple in our house as a healthy substitute for crunchy snacks. But I was very disappointed. To me, the taste was unpleasant and so was the texture. It was like eating delicate, wafer-thin, kale flavored paper. I have to say honestly that I'm not a big kale fan (no matter how it is cooked). I don't think it's a bad recipe, it's just not for us. But it's always good to try new things. So if you're curious, give it a try. Heck kale is pretty cheap and it doesn't take long to make a batch. And you never know you may like it. Lots of people do.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
These were delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I did find it easier to just dip the cookie tops into the frosting instead of drizzling them with the frosting. And the more frosting the better, right? Also wanted to mention that I used my medium Pampered Chef scoop and the recipe yielded 3 1/2 dozen.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
This was VERY GOOD! My 8 y/o especially liked it. I made it exactly according to recipe. Only alteration was baking time. I set timer for 45 min, but it was a bit overbaked. I would recommend starting to check for doneness at 30-35 min.

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
I didn't like these straight out of the oven; they were too chocolatey. But the next day I enjoyed them.

Beef Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
I made this last night and my husband absolutely loved it! I used 4 cans of beef broth instead of the boullion and water. And the other change I made was to slow cook my beef in the broth with the onion and celery to the point it was fork tender and I could easily shred it. I also used just plain old dry egg noodles. This is a keeper.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
I made these for the first time this morning and have to say they are wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly except I omitted the walnuts (kids don't like 'em). This will be my go to chococlate chip cookie recipe from now on! Also wanted to note that I used my medium Pampered Chef scoop and the recipe yielded 43 cookies. Because of spreading when baking, I baked 8 cookies per cookie sheet.

Creamy Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
I made this last night for us to enjoy while decorating the tree. It was so EASY and very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly and thought it was great. My daughter (the hot chocolate expert) loved it! I plan to make a triple bath tonight for family movie night at church. I love the simplicity of the recipe and the fact that it can be easily done in a crockpot.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I thought this was very good. I will definitely make it again. I mixed my sauce directly into the pasta as others suggested. And I used Italian sausage instead of ground beef (my preference). It was a very simple dish to prepare, which is what I really like about it! As a matter of fact, I am preparing it for a dinner I am catering this week because of the ease in preparation.

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
I made this for dinner last night for the first time. I followed the recipe exactly except I baked my bacon in the oven and then crumbled it and put it in the casserole. (It just seems easier to me because I can cook all the bacon at one time this way.) This was absolutely DELICIOUS. This is a recipe I will make over and over again. I baked mine in a glass 9x13 pan.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
I made this exactly according to the recipe. No one in the family liked it. The kids tasted it and wouldn't finish it.

Scented Applesauce-Cinnamon Ornaments

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
We made these yesterday. They turned out beautifully. I only used 1c applesauce and slightly more than 1c cinnamon. Actually, I gave each of my kids an individual applesauce cup and there own mixing bowl and spoon and measured a heaping 1/2c cinnamon for them and set them loose mixing and kneading the dough. They loved making these. We, too, used straws to make the hole for the ribbon.

Pecan Turtle Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
I have a recipe for these from Taste of Home (1996) thatt is almost the same. They are delicious! For the crust I use 2c flour, 1 c brown sugar and 1/2c butter and press into 9x13 pan; top with 1c pecan halves. For caramel, boil 2/3c butter and 1/2c brown sugar, bring to boil and boil for 1 minute. Pour over crust and bake for 18-22 minutes @ 350*. Then just sprinkle on 1c semisweet choc chips and spread when melted.
