The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Ok, so there are a lot of mixed reviews about this recipe. I think the reason why it gets so many mixed reviews is because people like different types of cookies. Here is my description. This recipe yields very rich, very peanut buttery cookies that are more "fall apart" than chewy. They will come out soft if you cook them a little underdone. If you cook them too long, they will be crunchy and buttery like a shortbread type cookie. If you are looking for chewy cookies like you find at the mall or grocery store, use Mrs. Siggs recipe from this site with a little more peanut butter.

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Made the recipe twice. Changes I made: 1. Added 1 cup of s. cream 2. Sauteed onions, will be crunchy of you skip this step. 3. Used fresh mushrooms and sauteed with onions 4. Fresh Garlic added to sauteed veggies 5. Ritz crackers instead of potato chips 6. Dash of cayenne, dried thyme, pepper and salt The dish would be pretty flavorless without the garlic and spices, especially since there is no pepper in the recipe. My husband is a big fan of casseroles, and I have learned to live with them... there is another recipe for this casserole made from scratch and I think I might try that next time.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Unfortunately, I followed advice of another reviewer and removed some of the liquid and used a stick blender to save washing another bowl... i left way too much liquid and it became Refried Bean Soup... not appetizing and all my fault. The recipe was great, would give it five stars, but had to reduce the salt to 1 Tablespoon. Also, try soaking the beans the night before to make them more digestible. Just make sure to use filtered water or the skins will be tough. Remember to use twice the water as beans when soaking, they take quite a bit of water and puff up considerably.

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
The pie came out great - no problems at all. I did not have any pumpkin pie spice, so I just used 1 tspn of cinnamon. I took another reviewer's suggestion and blended the entire pie after mixed. The pie came out incredibly smooth. Pre-Bake the crust if you would like it crispy. Will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2006
I am an Indian native looking for an Americanized version of this dish for a friend who is a little intimidated by Indian food. I gave this recipe a try, and it is almost there. First, I used fresh minced ginger and garlic, but had to triple the amount. That made a huge difference. I noticed that many reviewers said the recipe is missing something. I think that something is coriander. Most Makhani dishes have a cumin/coriander combination which is missing from this recipe. I added a little ground coriander and the dish was great. Perfect for a new Indian cook.

Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
Tastes great, easy recipe to follow. I used a homemade crust and the pie looked beautiful. I had to cook the pie 10 minutes longer than the recipe. My pie was a little runny, but I think that I should have drained my fresh peaches before mixing in the flour (some liquid left in the bottom of the bowl). Make sure you cool if for at least 2 hours before cutting. This will really ensure that the pie stays together. This will be my new standard summer recipe. You will love it.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
Great tasting -- family loved it. Followed other reviewer's advice and added an extra pat of butter and a little more cocoa, little less sugar. Tastes better the next day.

Absolutely Perfect Palak Paneer

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2004
The curry was ok, but using ricotta instead on homemade paneer (which is very easy to make) seemed too far of a stretch. It takes more work, but the texture is worth it.

Good recipe, came out fine. Not unusual or special, a standard recipe. Add some more spices to bring out more flavor.

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2003
I gave this recipe such a high rating because it was so simple, quick, and flavorful. I only marinated the chicken for 1 hour, and the meat really took on its flavor. I did add a little brown sugar because the marinade seemed a little salty to me. Next time I will use low sodium soy sauce. Definitely will make again.

Pork a la Steve

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2003
This was a pretty good recipe. I used 2 small 10 oz pork tenderloins instead of thr larger roast(grilled them for about 4 minutes on each side for medium temp). I also only made half of the marinade in the recipe, and used a large plastic ziploc bag instead of the shallow pan. The meat came out much more flavorful that way. The original amount of the marinade seemed excessive, even for 2 lbs of meat. The last thing i did was make a glaze with 2 Tblspns of Orange Marmalade, 1 tspn of soy sauce,a handufl of chopped cilantro, and half a clove of garlic finely minced. I warmed the glaze in the microwave for thirty seconds and poured it over the meat while serving. It came out great, will definitely have again.

Grilled Caribbean Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2003
This was a good recipe. After marinating and grilling the chicken, I made a glaze with mango chutney, orange juice, and fresh ginger by reducing on the stove for ten minutes. Just baste during the last minute of grilling. Was a great recipe, will have again.
