Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2003
This recipe was a FLOP!! 55 minutes meant a piece of burned crust with the consistency of rubber. It was edible, but that does not mean tasty in the least. Turned me off cobbler.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2003
This was delicious and had a great consistency. I had to modify the black bean soup to lentil soup and the garbanzo beans to six bean salad, it was still a treat. Vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike gobbled it up at a dinner party.

Homemade Wine Coolers

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2003
Super simple to make, these coolers taste not too soda-like but not too wine-like either. Plus, they look amazing.

Garlic and Olive Oil

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2003
A simple, not too strong dressing that compliments the vegetables as opposed to covering them.

Almond Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
I personally liked this salad (which is more of a meal than a side dish) but the others in the household thought it was a bit too busy. Nice crunch. I added mandarin orange segments for a bit of moisture and sweetness and they were a nice addition.

Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2003
Excellent! No one, and I mean no one, did not lick the bowl clean after this meal. It's creamy, flavorful, and wonderful with some extra cheese on top. That's all I would modify- more cheese! Thanks for this recipe.

Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2004
These cookies are just the right thing on a cold night with a cup of tea or a glass of milk. Definitely not for those who dislike gingerbread! The combo of tastes worked remarkably well.

Double-Decker Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2004
Rich and not too sweet, the two layers of this fudge compliment each other nicely. A little tricky to make at the crucial moment of pouring, the work was worth it! They were the special treat in cookie trays sent out this year.

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
I made these pancakes with chocolate chips for my boyfriend's birthday breakfast and he loved them! I had them without the chocolate and I thought they had a really delicious vanilla taste. Much better than boxed mix!

Scottley's Basic Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
I'm afraid this recipe didn't turn out well at all- the cake tasted stale and dry an hour after it was baked, and it was quite hard. I wouldn't use this one again.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
The apple and the crisp blend nicely. I found that the taste was a little bland... next time I will use more cinnamon and put it on the underside of the apples as well. The oats add a great crunch.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2005
I chose this because it really does make for a huge meal, perfect for a dinner party consisting of a few hungry alpha males. I substituted salsa for the taco sauce, which I couldn't find anywhere. It went over very well, although it certaintly wasn't spicy at all. It is, however, a great treat for meat lovers, and I received requests for the recipe.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2005
A good bet. They stay fat, which is great. But I would reduce cooking time to 10-12 minutes, because the ones I baked for 15 were quite crispy, and I prefer my cookies soft and chewy. They did disappear very fast at a moving party, one person asked what I did to make them look so nice (they have a pretty look naturally).

Country Style Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
These were OK- I think they would have been better with a little more flavor- I added rosemary which was nice. Overall just not very exciting.

Pan Fried Whole Trout

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
The batter coated the fish nicely and tasted very nice. It looked pretty good too.

Cappuccino Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
These were very good- and simple to make, so a great choice for a last minute potluck or gift. The coffee really enhances the flavor of the chocolate. These are rich and only for chocolate lovers!

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
Despite my doubts, this turned out really great. I used three cheese ranch, which was an added cheese kick. There were no green onions around so I used green pepper, which was delicious. Much better than the oven version.

Spicy Fish Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
OK I am no expert so maybe the fact that the green chilis I used were pickled made a huge difference but this was waaaay toooo hot to eat. I added a full carton of yogurt and some white sugar and my mouth is still flaming. Before the insane heat hit me, I did like the flavor, but after four bites my eyes were watering and my boyfriend was begging for mercy. I will be avoiding spicy food for awhile.

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
This is a lovely flavor and texture, and the frosting is the perfect hit between sweet and creamy. My only criticism is that some spiciness would have been good- maybe the addition of ginger or nutmeg would do the trick.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
I was tempted by the ease of preparation and the small number of ingredients. I followed the suggestion of sauteeing the olive oil (which I used to replace the butter), garlic, spices, and lemon proir to sprinking, and also put salt, pepper, and parsley directly on the fish before that. Very nice complement to the flakiness of tilapia, but a tad too tart from the lemon. I would add more garlic and olive oil to balance it out. Update: Much better with butter than olive oil.
