Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Jumbo Shells

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2003
I made this recipe for 10 people on Mothers Day and everyone liked it. We all thought the variance of chicken in a mostly italian dish was good. The shells were easy to stuff as the stuffing mixture sticks together very easily. The only thing I changed the second time I made it was taking out the cheddar cheese and doubling the mozzarella and using a jarred spaghetti sauce instead of the plain tomato sauce. Very good!!

Cinnamon Pancakes in a Jar

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2003
I am 7 weeks pregnant and crave pancakes every Sunday morning. This morning, my husband would not take me to get them, so I searched the internet for a recipe that I had all the fixin's for. This is a wonderfully easy recipe and can be made with the common things in your cupboards. My 2 year old loved them too! I hadn't planned on doing the jar gift thing when I first read the recipe, but now that I know how good they are, I just may do it for Christmas with some homemade maple syrup. These would be really good with a fruit syrup of some kind too. The only thing I did change was adding the extra milk, I sifted all the dry ingredients together and added some pure vanilla extract. Since I didn't make the whole jar recipe, I just halved the dry ingredients and kept the egg and oil the same, adding the extra 3/4 C milk.

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2003
My husband bought me a brand new grill with all the bells and whistles for my 25th birthday so I wanted to cook as many things on it as I could for a cook out that night. I came across this recipe and because of all the wonderful reviews decided to try it. They were wonderful! There were 7 of us eating and everyone enjoyed them. I used italian sweet onions, seasoned salt, garlic powder and coarse black pepper. The grill smelled wonderful when they were cooking and they were soooo easy! I did double wrap them in foil and next time I will only use half the butter (but I think I went overboard in the first place) I ran out of cooking spray when I was halfway done so I rubbed olive oil on the foil for the rest - I had no sticking. I will definetly make these again. There are SO many different things you can do with them!! They cooked in 26 minutes and the last 4 minutes I put them over direct fire to get them a little crispy. Wonderful!!!

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2003
I took a previous reviewers suggestion and added cinnamon chips to the batter. I think this added a good taste, but could be achieved just as easily with regular cinnamon in the batter. I did use brown and white sugar in the struesal topping, but that is just because we like ours really sweet! I didn't add the topping until the last 10 minutes of baking and it got nice and crunchy. I took this to my mom's birthday brunch and it was the only thing that there was none left of! My dad (the coffee cake conisueur) said it was perfect!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2003
I doubled the recipe to make some for my friend at work who loves homemade breads, but didn't realize until I was almost through the second part that I only had 3 eggs instead of 4. I was too lazy to go to the store so I stuck with 3 and the 3 loaves that I got out of this recipe still turned out great. I added a little cinnamon to the batter and also coated the pan with a cinnamon/sugar mixture. This gave the crust a good, sweet crunch. My 2 year old had 2 pieces of this for breakfast the next morning and I had 3. We toasted it in the toaster and put a little butter on it while it was still warm. I had to cook a little longer since I put it in 3 bread loaf pans instead of 4. Overall, VERY YUMMY!!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2003
I have now made this twice and both times it was great! I made some for me at home the first time( I am 5 months pregnant and get cravings!), the second was for a potluck at work. Everyone loved it! I do recommend making the dressing 24 hours in advance and letting it all meld together, this definetly makes for a wonderful flavor. Also, letting everything (besides the seeds and bacon) refrigerate for a few hours once you DO stir in the dressing really lets the dressing soak into the broccoli. I just add the bacon and sunflower seeds right before serving and then mix it all up. This is definetly one of my favorite recipes from this site and I don't even like raw broccoli!!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2003
I made these in a Halloween theme. They turned out great! I didn't have enough butter so I used butter flavor shortening instead and they still turned out great! My dough was a little more crumbly than I like, but that could be due to the fact that I used shortening instead of butter. I fixed that by keeping a small bowl of milk on my table and rubbing some into the dough when needed. I used a thick butter cream frosting for these. They were great!

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2003
This was a little thicker than I like, so I added a 1/2 tsp. more milk and it was perfect. I put it on cut out halloween cookies. Yummy!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2003
I would give this more than 5 stars if I could. It was very easy and the finished product exceeded the prep time. It took me longer than the listed cooking time to get my breasts done, but they were pretty big. Total time in the oven was 40 minutes. My husband LOVED this and my mother in law commented on how wonderful the house smelled when she stopped over. I did add some basil, oregano, onion salt and black pepper to the bread crumb mixture and I used Romano cheese instead of parmesan because that is all that I had. ********** -- 10 stars!

Round Steak and Gravy II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2003
I also cooked this in the crockpot all day long rather than the oven. I used other raters suggestions and used Mushroom Soup with Roasted Garlic. I really liked this flavor. Not long before serving I added a little corn starch in cold water to make the gravy thicker so we could spoon it on our mashed potatos. I had also added a can of mushroom slices and a little bit of pepper. Overall, a good meal. I suggest that you serve this with some type of bread. I neglected to make any and my husband and I both commented about how if we had some to sop up the gravy, it would have been yummy!!

Peppermint Patty Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2003
I couldn't find mint chips at my grocery, so I bought mini semisweet chocolate chips and peppermint extract. I melted the chocolate in a double boiler and added 1/4 tsp of the extract while the chips were melting. As per other ratings, I let the dough refrigerate for 1/2 hour to 1 hour before rolling into balls. The dough was still a little sticky, but nothing that was a pain to deal with. I found that a whole tablespoon of dough was a little too much as they do spread when baking, so I used about half of that. I didn't roll them in powdered sugar again after baking. This recipe made wonderful, soft cookies. That yummy melted patty in the center is just great! I didn't have a problem with any "gooey mess" on my cookie sheet either. I did use York Peppermint Patties and not the cheaper brand like others suggested. Everyone LOVED these cookies!!!!!

Company Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. It was so creamy and had a ton of good flavor. I reheated it the next day and it was still just as good. I had a little broccoli in the fridge so I tossed that in too. I am on a low carb diet so I just left out the bread crumbs. This is now one of my favorite low carb side dish recipes! Not to mention one of my favorite side dishes PERIOD!!

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
This is absolutely awesome!! I did add a little more bacon as I LOVE it and I didn't have cider vinegar so I used plain white. I also added a dash of paprika and a dash of garlic powder. I made this recipe for myself since my hubby doesn't like cabbage and I ate the WHOLE batch that same night. I will be making this often!

Baked Vegetables I

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2004
The taste was OK, but my vegetables came out VERY mushy. I am not sure what I did wrong as I am normally a decent cook. I will try it again someday and change my review if needed.

French Onion Soup III

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2004
Pretty good. I am still in search of the perfect recipe though. I would make it again. I left out the bread as I am just not a fan of much bread in my french onion soup. Overall, good flavor.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2004
Pretty good. I don't think they are as good as the restaurants, but my hubby liked them a lot. The recipe makes quite a big batch, halve it if you only have two people eating like I did!

Cabbage on the Grill

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2004
Awesome! I added a bit of seasoning salt instead of plain salt and used coarse black pepper. You can also add a tsp or so of Olive Oil to the packet and it seems to help it cook a little faster. I make this quite often in the summer!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2004
Awesome! I sprinkled a little cinnamon and vanilla between the layers of apples because I love the flavor of both. This is a VERY good apple pie! Side note - do NOT overfill the dish with the butter/sugar mixture. If it drips onto the bottom of your oven - it WILL burn quickly.

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2004
Awesome cookies! I made these because my chocolate chip cookies are famous at work. A co-worker asked if I could make Snickerdoodles as well as I could chocolate chip. I have never made them, so I searched and found this recipe. They melt in your mouth with a satisfyingly crunchy outside. I did not have maple sugar so I used a mix of white sugar, brown sugar and a small amount on cinnamon to roll them in. I also stirred about 1 tsp of pure maple syrup into the sugar mixture. Not sure if it helped, but it worked! Also, I do NOT use margarine for anything, so I just used the same amount of melted butter. I always use melted butter in recipes - it's the secret to soft cookies! Awesome! I will definetly make these again!

Fire and Ice Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
Excellent. This turned out so good. I made it the night before and let it marinate overnight, cutting up the cucumbers and adding them about 20 minutes before. It's so tangy and the dressing would be AWESOME served on a salad. I had 3 people ask me for the recipe for this today when I served it at my sons birthday party. I used orange and yellow peppers instead of green because I love the flavor of them so much more.
