Spaghetti and Meatballs Muffin Bites

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
So I followed the recipe to a T but I must have gone somewhere. My nests of noodles didn't stay together and I ended up with spaghetti and meatballs but with twice the cook time vs if I had just boiled a pot of noodles and cooked my meatballs in my sauce. Neat in theory but at least in my experience, not so much in practice other than I had toddler sized portions that DW could dole out.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
So I would give a 4 star to the actual recipe but a 2 to the name. The name implies granola based goodies. This in fact is a semi healthy but then take it all away rice krispie recipe. Super yummy, don't get me wrong, but at the end of the day a 1/2 rice crispy, 1/2 oatmeal, rice crispy treat. I wonder if you are really doing any health justice to substituting marsh mellow fluff for corn syrup and brown sugar. Again, super yummie recipe but not nearly a granola snack I was looking for, instead a really time consuming on clean up oatmeal cookie after dinner treat. Trust me I ate way more of them than my kids did, they are really tasty

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
So I'm like you, I want a review done on the actual recipe not the changes. So I made the recipe, even went on a special trip to buy wheat germ, got home to make and realized I had NO HONEY! So round one: made to order for the recipe but substituted light agave for honey, WONDERFUL! Don't worry about storing, your kids will eat them to fast to concern yourself with making sure the zip-lock bag is closed or not. Second time around, still had not bought honey and now out of agave, so substituted 1/2 cup or a little less light corn syrup and a big heaping serving spoon of peanut butter. OMG, I don't honestly know if by the morning there will be any left for my kids!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2015
My own fault it didn't receive 5 stars. I picked up a whole chicken, which I have never cooked first, then found the recipe. My chicken was nearly 5.5 pounds. I followed the directions but wanted a one pan meal so I added some cut sweet potatoes, a couple of wedged onions and 6 ears of corn to the bottom, put the chicken on top and cooked for a total of 2 hours to reach 180 internal temp. Next time I will 1) buy the right sized bird or cover with foil for the last half of cooking. 2) put the corn on the bottom of the chicken and surround chicken with sweet potatoes. Everything was delish!

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2015
Threw this together in between clients at the farm. Super easy and had two happy toddlers. As others suggested, I cut the hot dogs up and pushed them down into the batter. Also only had thick shredded mozzarella on hand and it worked great. Next time I will probably just chop the hot dogs up and mix them into the batter and just pour away.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
Nothing exceptional. Very bland, wished I had omitted the lemon juice, perhaps because I froze steak with marinade I lost why it was in the recipe, and doubled the amount of worcetershire (sp).

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
I did everything per the recipe and I personally thought as did my non-fish eating spouse, that the fish was wonderful as stated in the recipe. I did not care for the sauce but my spouse loved it with one exception, she said the lemon slices sucked some of the seasoning and sauce away. So changes for next time: omit the sliced lemon, bump the lemon juice to 1-2TB, switch out mayo and sour cream for greek yogurt, if needed reduced with a little chicken stock.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
I love plain hummus, without all the extra flair, and this was it! A traditional, basic hummus! I did go old school and soak dried chickpeas for a day in some salted water, drained, and then brought to a boil in more salted water and left to simmer for about 3 hours. I personally, after the first batch, would drop the tahini to 1/4c and the lemon juice to about 1/8c, would add in some of the juice the chickpeas boiled in and as always, I added more garlic. Absolutly wonderful!!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Fantastic! Followed contributors suggestion and really didn't measure any of the dry ingredients; couple of potatoes, skin on, 3-4 stalks of celery, 4 large carrots, small onion, couple handfuls of ham.... hard to screw up! Unless you want soggy mashed potato like soup when you reheat, do add some water, broth, milk, something when microwaving leftovers, this bad boy gets THICK!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Great! And I even messed up on one thing! I forgot to add the seasoning packet while making the roux so I just tossed it in the whole pot with the roux/cream mixture. Also, did this with fat-free half and half and it was really good, did add a touch of water when reheating but was great with a loaf of homemade sourdough!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
I don't typically make a lot of soups so when I say this was super easy, I'm not lying. I will say I made it per the recipe the first time and the next played, adding more of the veggies listed as well as some leeks I had left over, upped the broth and lentil amount to make it not quite so dense and omitted the tomato paste both times. EXCELLENT base to play around with or as written, thanks!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
Ok so I made this with a butter recipe cake mix, vanilla pudding and white chocolate chips, but other than that didn't change a thing. And DON'T! I'm in Florida, so no high elevations to deal with and I found no need to change the oil amount. I cooked in two 9" round pans for 40 mins and they were perfect! Frosted with cream cheese icing, yum!

Becky's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Admittedly, I didn't whip the cream to soft peaks, just whisked into mayo and combined with other. But I made this for 100, 25 pounds of chicken, and it was all gone at my wedding! People, including a local restaurant owner, have been begging me for the recipe! Ok, so here's what I did; boil skinless bone in breast meat with some salt, bay leaf and a pinch of powder chicken bouillon. Boiled the first batch of 12 pounds in that, didn't change just added water for second batch. Deboned and shredded, salted, added whole small red grapes, walnuts and mayo/cream mixture. It was GONE!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Loved this! I'm not great cooking pork and this recipe was easy and great. I'm not sure if the cooking times in the recipe were for thick chops but I followed the suggested cooking times of 20 mins covered and 10 mins uncovered. I also deglazed the pan with the wine and heated the gravy in the pan. Thanks for sharing!
