Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I've ever made (hence the name!). Other recipes just aren't as pretty. Not only do these taste great, but they are very uniform and perfect looking without even trying. There is a nice cracking on top and they stay round, not too flat and not too thick. If you the cookies on the smaller side, you can easily get 6+ dozen out of this recipe. The smaller cookies are perfect for a tiny treat, with less guilt.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This was crazy good. I doubled the spices, but followed the recipe to a T with the ingredients. I poked pockets in the meat and stuffed the extra spice mix all over to help penetrate the meat and it worked great. I cooked this while I was at work, so I couldn't turn it after 5 hours and it didn't matter. The top got this black crust on it that was just phenomenal. I followed other suggestions and broiled it for about 8 minutes after I shredded it and it really crisped up nicely. I will make this again and again.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This is one of my family's favorite recipes. I make it all the time and freeze half of it for later. Don't skimp on the beer, it gives it a really unique flavor. I like to double the chicken so it's really meaty, but that's the only change I make.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
This recipe is fantastic! For those reviewers that complained about it being too watery at the end, an easy fix is to just not cook the noodles at all. Put the lasagna noodles in dry and they will soak up the liquid as they cook. I wouldn't change a thing in here. Do yourself a favor and make this as written the first time before you try any modifications, it's really good!

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
This is amazing, absolutely perfect. I did cut back on the flour and add a little more oats, but besides that, I followed it exactly and it was terrific. I used Golden Delicious apples cut in 1/4" slices - be sure to cut them thck so they hold their shape and don't get mushy, they are so much better like that.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Loved this, it will replace my regular stroganoff recipe. I followed the top rated reviewers and it turned out perfect. Leftovers were even better the next day.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
This was the best pasta salad I've ever made. I used the suggestions by previous reviewers and cut the sugar to only half a cup, and used an entire 12 oz box of pasta, because it does make a lot of sauce. Otherwise, followed the recipe to a T, and it was terrific. Rave reviews at a potluck for this one and many requests for the recipe.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This recipe was a huge surprise to me, the flavor was awesome!! Everything in it seems so basic, yet the taste is nothing but! It tastes like something you'd order at a restaurant. I will make this again and again.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This was the best slaw I've ever made. I did use mayo and celery seed (didn't have poppy). I let it marinade for about 4 hours. I will never make another slaw, we loved this!

Easy Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
This one gets 5 stars just for the sheer ease of it. I did just the fish and it was so easy and turned out great. I didn't have any Old Bay, so I used McCormick seasoning for chicken and fish, and it was perfect.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I loved this! I put it in the slow cooker this morning and just added 2 cups of beef broth with it to make sure it was covered. 9 hours later, it was absolutely perfect.

Grilled Venison Backstrap

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Fantastic, couldn't even tell it was venison. I didn't have apple cider available, so I just used frozen apple juice concentrate and it worked great.

Gypsy Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I have been searching for a vegetable soup recipe and have finally found one! This is terrific. I followed the recipe to a T, with the one exception of soy sauce (didn't have any tamari). The smell and the flavor is totally different that any other vegetable soup I've had. I did have to cook it for an extra half hour to get all the veggies cooked through, but other than that, it was a breeze to make!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
I have finally found a mac and cheese recipe that I can make healthy! This was so easy to alter to keep the fat down and add additional nutrition. I used whole wheat noodles, low fat cottage cheese and fat free sour cream. I blended the cottage and cheese and sour cream to gain a better consistancy for picky kids (it came out like ricotta). Then, I added southwestern seasoning salt, italian seasoning and garlic powder. I mixed a half a cup of 1% milk to make it creamier. I used 4 oz of low fat mexican cheese blend, 4 oz of italian cheese blend, and 4 oz of colby jack (I didn't have chedder or parm). I even added a cauliflower/zuchinni puree to the mix to add a little more nutrition. The kids didn't know the difference - said it was their favorite mac and cheese!

Pumpkin Flax Quickbread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
This recipe is awesome as is, and with any personal touches. I made 2 batches to start with - 1 as written with a loaf and it was perfect (just cut back the sugar by a quarter and subbed half the sugar for splenda). The other I added a 1/4c unsweetened cocoa powder to it and made mini muffins and they were phenomenal! The best part about this recipe is that it's so moist and delicious and really good for you, too. This is such a great Fall treat!!

Fresh Asparagus and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
I changed this recipe a lot, but it's a great base recipe. I didn't want a lot of fat, so I only used 1 tsp of olive oil and fat free sour cream. I was a little concerned with the recipe being soupy, so I mixed 2 tbl of flour with the sour cream before adding and it worked great. I added garlic, shallots, fresh mushrooms, italian seasoning, season salt, and extra marjoram. Once I cooked the veggies and chicken, I added the broth, sour cream and spices, then I let it simmer for a little while to thicken a bit. I mixed the cheese in the sauce. Once it started to thicken, I combined with Whole Wheat Rotini in a casserole dish. It turned out great. Next time I'll triple the chicken (there just wasn't enough) and cut the sour cream in half (a little too mcuh). Great recipe!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
Excellant! I did follow the reviewers suggestions and cooked the chicken and veggies in the chicken broth. For speed, I used a bag of frozen mixed veggies and then added some chopped potatoes. I also used the pillsbury pie crusts that you just roll out. That's a must - so easy! The whole family enjoyed this, even my picky 4 year old. We'll be keeping this one handy.

Out of this World Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
This was perfect! The turkey was the most moist I have ever tasted. The only change I made was to add vegetable broth.

Barbecue Beef Cups

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
We really liked this recipe. I paid attention to the other reviews and added my own twist to it. After filling the muffin cups with dough, I baked the dough by itself for 2 minutes before adding the beef filling. This made sure the entire bottom was firm and cooked thru. I added chopped onion, green pepper, garlic, crushed red pepper, worstechire sauce, prepared mustard, honey, and hot sauce. I mixed the cheese in to the beef mix. This made it turn out kind of like a sloppy joe. It tasted great! Also, I used butter crescent rolls, and the cup was perfect! This is a winner!
