Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Very good. I used applesauce instead of butter or oil to cut down on the fat and calories a bit. left the topping on but used low fat margarine. No one else mentioned this but when I baked them the topping seemed to sink a little into the muffins but that was not a bad thing.. it created a brown sugar/cinnamon swirl in the middle of the muffin and made it almost decadent.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Excellent.. doubled recipe per suggestions and just sprinkled the cinnamon and sugar on the top and didn't measure it.. probably used less than stated.. only used 3/4 cup of each of the sugars (doubled recipe) and used 2 full granny smith apples which was probably 2 cups. Also added raisins b/c I love love love them and about 3 tblspns or so of apple juice.

Saffron Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
wonderful.. I did use chicken stock like some others suggested and cut the butter to 4 tblspns. That was plenty.. the texture of the rice was great--I'm not generally a fan of rice.

Ice Cream Cone Cakes Recipe from Betty Crocker

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
these are very cute.. obviously the cupcake is only as good as the cake mix used.. it's a great idea though. As far as icing them and keeping them upright, I used regular glasses and put 3 cones in each.. kinda like a bouquet of ice cream cupcakes. They're definitely better eaten right away though.. too hard to store and keep fresh.

The Real Deal Korean Beef Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Didn't do the plum sauce b/c I was pretty sure my husband wouldn't like it and didn't know if I would either so I just put in some red wine vinegar. We had one of my daughter's friends over who has a korean grandmother and she said they tasted just like her grandmother's ribs that she makes for her without the plum sauce (b/c she doesn't like it).

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
This was ok. I think it needs more seasoning personally. I did leave out the bouillon per some suggestions but I added back in some salt. It was just ok though.

BBQ Chicken Calzones

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
My husband loved these. I did add in some chopped green and yellow pepper b/c I had it leftover from making salad last night and wanted to go ahead and use it. I also mixed the cilantro in and added some chopped turkey pepperoni and minced garlic. I just eyeballed the bbq sauce b/c I wasn't sure my husband would be crazy about these so I didn't want to overdo the bbq. I also brushed the tops with some egg before I put them in the oven so they would brown nicely. They looked wonderful and my husband said they were delicious. He doesn't like pineapple but I do so next time I think I'll throw some pineapple in my calzone.

Easy Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Excellent and so easy.. you can add whatever extra seasoning you want to the coating. I did make a kind of alfredo type sauce to spoon over the top. I made it for my aunt and she raved about it.

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Very very good. We all enjoyed it. Used a bit more ham and less potatoes than called for and I only had Idaho potatoes so that's what I used. I used leftover ham from Christmas to make this and it was definitely a winner.

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Easy and good flavor without having to slow cook them all day. I probably put a bit too much water in so it took a couple of hours to cook down but no big deal.

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I made it to a T except added in some cut up carrots too b/c I had some to get rid of and I added garbanzo beans too. I think next time I'll use less water b/c I ended up adding tomato paste to thicken it.

Cranberry Swirl Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Really good cake. I actually used leftover homemade cranberry sauce instead of canned. I'll make it again and try the crumb topping as suggested. Might even sprinkle it between the layers.

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Excellent and so easy. I added some poultry seasoning and some thyme and a scoop of butter as well as a 1/2 can of chicken broth. We had a friend over who hadn't had chicken and dumplings and he thought it was great.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This was great. I used beef brisket b/c it was really cheap and it was excellent. I just left in in the slow cooker on low before I left the house in the morning and 10 hours later, voila! I sauteed some onions and peppers and broiled butttered buns. Then I put the meat and veggies on and melted mozarella on the top and bottoms. Excellent! And the recipe doesn't call for broth so since there were reviews that said it was too salty I justed used water as instructed and there was no issue with the salt level. Maybe you should try following the recipe and not give the recipe a bad review when you modified it.

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Perfect cookies. I didn't have enough all purpose flour on hand so I subbed self-rising and eliminated the salt and baking powder. I also didn't have stick margarine so I used unsalted butter instead and added back in abt a 1/4 tsp salt to compensate. They were delicious and the texture was perfect. Take them out right when you see very slight slight browning on the top
