Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Great creamy mashed potatoes! I halved everything in this recipe, otherwise it was followed exactly. Because I do not have a masher, I cut the baby reds into fourths after they were done boiling and threw them together with the other ingredients into my stand mixer. Then, mixed on med-high until fluffy. These do lack a little on flavor, so adding an extra seasoning might be required for those who don't like plain mashers. The only thing I will change next time is cutting back on the butter, just to make them a little bit healthier. Otherwise they were great, thank you!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
An overall great oatmeal cookie recipe, but I also made some adjustments. First I should note, that I halved everything in this recipe because I was baking for a household of two. It made a batch of about 15 medium sized cookies (still more than enough for us). It's my personal opinion that plain oatmeal cookies are boring, so I threw in a large handful of Sun-Maid Raisins. Since I was cooking at night, I did not have time to chill the dough before baking but I didn't have any issues with it being too sticky and the cookies still came out fantastic. As another reviewer commented, I also did NOT flatten the cookies and did not add any additional sugar. I prefer oatmeal cookies to be golden but still chewy, 9 minutes in my oven worked out perfectly! I recommend baking for 8-9 minutes for softer cookies or the full 10-12 for crispy cookies. Would make these again.

Scottish Shortbread II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
Quick and simple recipe for shortbread buttery goodness. I made this late one night when I was itching to bake but only had a few basic ingredients on hand. Followed this recipe exactly, even used a 9 x 9 glass pan. Important to wait until it cools before cutting. I also sprinkled nutmeg on top before putting it into the oven, which perfected the recipe for me. This is a fairly traditional shortbread, texture is slightly crumbly but it still melts in your mouth. Will definitely be making again this year for the holidays!

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
Substitute 2 Tbl applesauce for vegetable oil, add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and you have the best Banana Pancakes Recipe I've come across so far! I have made these pancakes several times now for friends and always received great compliments after. Using two whole bananas really helps make them a flavorful breakfast treat.

Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
This is a good basic chili recipe but, like many other reviewers, I had to make some modifications to get the results I wanted. After reading comments, I decided to leave only one can of beans undrained and also swapped out 1 can of tomato paste for 1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles. This worked out pretty well for making a slightly thicker chili and yet still had enough liquid so as not to burn on the sides of the crockpot. Also left out the celery and halved the garlic called for (due to preference in taste). As recommended, I increased the seasonings and spices. Anyone who likes a spicy chili will need to do this! Bumped up the chili seasoning to 1Tbl and the hot sauce to slightly over 1 tsp, also threw in a little bit of cumin. The chili still wasn't spicy enough for me after these increases and I ended up adding a few dashes of ground cayenne red pepper to the pot after it was done cooking. Overall, I would use this recipe again as a reference for basic chili ingredients but I will continue to adjust the measurements.
