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!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
Holy cow! This was delish! I made it for my father's birthday and he LOVED it! Even my kids loved it with the coffee flavor. There were a lot of steps involved, but overall it was not a difficult cake to make and it turned out beautiful! YUMMY! I can't wait for the next birthday!

Buttermilk Pancakes I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
We really enjoyed these. The only thing I did differently was the addition of about 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla and I didn't bother with the blender, I just whisked wet ingredients into dry and blended really well. My boyfriend commented that 'this is how I like my pancakes.' It made the perfect amount for our family of four. We will certainly be using this again. Thank you!

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!

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!

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!

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
These waffles were yummy! Perfect for a weekend morning or when you have a few extra minutes to prepare the egg whites. You do have to dirty a few extra bowls, but after you taste them, who cares! We also added about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and I ended up using about 1/2 cup fat free evaporated milk and 1/2 cup buttermilk, just to use up the evap milk. Still delish! Made exactly 3 in a thick restaurant style Belgian Waffle maker. My boys loved them and said definitely 5 stars. Great recipe, thanks!

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
This came out great! My boyfriend and I made it for his Holiday potluck since he LOVES peanut brittle and always secretly hopes for leftovers. Not having made peanut brittle before, I was a little nervous when it didn't heat up as quick as I expected, but it soon got up to temp and no burning. We sampled a few pieces and were so impressed with how delicious, and so easy! We plan on making this again next week for Christmas. Thanks!

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
So simple and so delicious! This is a great throw-together-at-the-last-minute recipe. I usually have all of these ingredients on hand, and when I don't have the asparagus, I substitue fresh spinach with equally tasty results. Thank you!

Never Fail Applesauce Spice Cake

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This was an excellent cake. I used homemade applebutter in place of the applesauce and halved the spices. Other than that this was made exactly as stated and it was moist, spicy, not too sweet and kept really well. The icing could probably be cut in half and still have been enough for the cake since it was rather sweet and I still had some left over with the amount in the recipe, but that was just preference. Easy enough to fix, though. We used it as a spread on some banana bread and it was another perfect match! Thank you for a great recipe.

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!

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
YUMMY! We really like this combination. I'm not a fan of any kind of onion so I always leave that out, but I've made this now exactly as stated as well as a few variations, such as using pumpkin pie spice instead of the garlic, salt & pepper. Or I use butternut squash in combination with the beets and sweet potatoes. Any way you dice it and spice it, this recipe is a winner! Thank you!

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
These came out really good. I didn't have enough bran so I had to substitute 3/4 cup of Wheat germ instead. They had excellent flavor and texture. Mine were moist and not too heavy at all. Great for a quick snack or an on the go breakfast. Yummy!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
This is the first rice pudding recipe I used from this site, several years ago and it is still one of my favorites. It is easy to make and just the right amount. I love eating it warm with raisins stirred in and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Delish!

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!

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
How can you go wrong with butter and sugar? We all love the roasted flavor of the squash and it comes out perfectly every time. My only addition is sprinkling a bit more brown sugar on the exposed edge of the squash and broiling it for the last couple of minutes. Also, if you have a grapefruit spoon or knife, the serrated, curved edge really helps to get the seeds and strings out of the center for almost any kind of squash. Yummy :)

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!

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
These are surprisingly good even with a few other changes. I like to incorporate flax in most of my recipes and substituted it for about half of the oil. I also used plain whole wheat flour and not the pastry flour. I added about a teaspoon of vanilla and cinnamon also. These are very good even as leftovers which I can't say for some of the other pancake recipes on this site. We have made these several times already and will continue for many breakfasts, lunches and dinners to come!

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!

Pork Chalupas

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
This is a great recipe! I have a larger crock pot so we doubled the recipe and froze the extra for quick dinners later. It freezes beautifully. My boys LOVE this filling and use it for quesadillas, burritos, tacos, etc. We still have some in the freezer, but will definitely continue to use this easy and delicious recipe!
