Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
These came out pretty good. They were certainly big, fat and chewy and they did have A LOT of chips as stated by other reviewers. All in all one of the better chocolate chip cookie recipes in my collection.

Joey's Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
This recipe came out very good but I kinda goofed through it. Mine was very thick & custardy with a nice crusty top even though I realized after I skipped the 'toast bread' step. Mine was already a couple of days old and nice and firm which helped to spread the butter and not smoosh the bread. I had to use about 3 cups heavy whipping cream and 2 cups half&half as that is what I had on hand. It wasn't grainy at all even without a water bath which I really liked. I also accidently dumped quite a bit of cinnamon after the shaker top fell off (oopsie!) but if this hadn't happened I think it may have been too bland. I will make this again with the same 'adjustments'. Yummy!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This was very tasty and enjoyed by all. I served it over some yummy jasmine rice. No one ingredient is overpowering, they blend so well together! The curry is nice and subtle and smelled great in the oven. I also used frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts in order to scale down the high fat content and they were very juicy and tender at 350 for 1 hour. We will definitely have this for dinner often!

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
Very melt-in-your-mouth-good pancakes. They were nice and fluffy but not quite as thick as I like. I did scale down the recipe and it's quite possible this was the reason. I'll have to make some adjustments next time with my scaled down version because there is no way we could ever eat a full batch, our 5 servings were more than enough! All in all, 5 star recipe for great flavor and all around approval from my tasters!

Cuban Midnight Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
These were very tasty! My boys loved them and had fun squishing them in the pan. I used a nonstick Calphalon grill pan so we took it easy on the olive oil. I think next time I will also halve the mayo mix. As delicious as it is it was just too much mayo for our taste. Overall, very yummy, quick and kid-helper friendly!

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
OMG! This smelled awesome while it was cooking. My only complaint was that I prefer a thicker stew and even with the cornstarch it wasn't quite as thick as I would have liked. The taste however more than made up for it and now I'll know for next time because we will definitely be making this again and again!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
I loved the flavor of these cookies! I searched and searched and found almost exactly what I was looking for. I made them exactly as stated in the recipe and they didn't quite turn out as large as I wanted. They were great right out of the oven but the next day they were still chewy but not very soft any longer. Next time I will make them larger and see if this helps. Great taste!

Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
These cookies were just what I was looking for in a peanut butter cookie. They were soft and chewy and peanut buttery without being overpowering or losing their sweetness. My mother's only complaint was that I didn't use chunky peanut butter. But she can never have enough chunky peanut butter where I am definitely a smooth fan. Not a bad suggestion though. An awesome cookie!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
Yummy! I haven't had snickerdoodles for a long time and my kids thought I was crazy just telling them the name, but once they tried them they didn't care what they were called! These are great right out of the oven with a tall glass of milk. Next time more cinnamon for me though... you can never have too much! And I loved the way they crack open and contrast with the sugar-cinnamon. MMMMmmmm!

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
I can't say I've ever made a chocolate cookie before quite like this but I won't ever have to look again. After baking about 6 different types of cookies for giveaways, and letting my boys taste them all, these were hands down the favorite. My youngest didn't even want to finish his other ones, he only wanted more 'chocolate cookies'. I think we'll be making these again VERY soon. Thank you!

Chili Dog Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
My kids loved this. It certainly does taste like a chili dog. We did use some healthier ingredients such as whole wheat buns, low fat hot dogs, low fat cheese, and turkey chili. The recipe was very kid friendly; my 8 year old made it almost all by himself and it was very quick. As good as it was it wasn't 'awesome' hence the 4 stars. We will have this every once in a while, when we are in need of a quick throw together dinner.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
This was alright. I thought for all the time cooking the meat would have a lot more flavor but it was quite bland. I added some spicy mustard to enhance the beef and did use the juice for dipping. I didn't think my kids would like it at all but they surprised me and I think enjoyed it more than I did. I may season it a bit more next time and see how it turns out. The meat was very tender however and the house smelled great when we walked in the door.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
Was it just me or was this very salty? The only thing I did differently was use less cracker than called for, simply because I didn't have enough. I did not substitute anything in it's place so I can't figure out why it seemed so salty to me. Anyhow, it had a good flavor otherwise and I just took each bit with mashed potatoes to even it out. The kids really enjoyed it too.

Restaurant Style Chicken Nachos

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
These were very good. My only addition was a little cumin to the chicken, but other than that I kept everything else the same. My kids really liked these and already asked for them again on next week's menu!

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
This is the second time we have made this. The first time I changed things a little so I wanted to be fair and try it again without changes before rating. Still a great recipe but I was hoping for a little more flavor. I would recommend a little more mustard or lemon juice depending on how your taste steers. It was very good, however, served over pasta with a bit of salt added to accentuate the flavors.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
I wasn't overly impressed with this. I didn't think it tasted very tuna-y at all and I prefer my casseroles to be creamier which this was not. The French Fried onions added a nice touch though and I also added some mixed veggies but I think I'll stick with my own recipe for now. It was very quick to throw togeher which was a plus.

Honey Crunch Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
A bit of a late review, but I made this for Thanksgiving this past year and everyone loved it! I was afraid it was going to be too sweet but it was perfect. It looked beautiful and tasted very yummy! I will definitely be making this again!

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
Okay, now I don't care for carrots much, but my kids do and they said they didn't notice much of a difference from regular carrots. I can see what they mean... there wasn't much of a flavor change. So, I made these again and added some cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg to the second batch and cut way back on the butter to maybe 2T and reduced the sugar as well. Both times I completely drained the water based on previous reviews and I still did not get much of a sauce to cling to the carrots. Not bad with modifications.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
I am definitely a big pancake fan and I usually don't have a problem with pancakes but for some reason these just don't sit well with me. I've made them twice to give it a fair shot but maybe it's too much baking powder? They were kinda bland the first time so I added some sugar and vanilla which did improve the flavor, but other than being a bit too spongy for me, they just didn't do it. So far I like the truck stop buttermilk pancakes and I still have more to try! My boys really enjoyed them, but these just weren't the pancake for me.
