Chocolate Chip Mini-Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
Wonderful. They were quick and easy and my son and all the people I made them for at church thought they were awsome.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
These were pretty good, but not a 5. I did what others suggested, adding vanilla and I also used 1/2 marg and 1/2 shortning, because I didn't have enough shortning. They were VERY sweet. Sweeter than I generally like. And I'm not so sure about the texture. They also really stick to the pan, even my Pampered Chef that nothing sticks to! I'm not sure what I'd do different, but they need tweeking.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I actually made these because I didn't honestly believe they could work. But they were really good. Took reading a lot of reviews to realize they had to be cooked longer. 10 to 12 was better. My son and husband loved them! The only reason I gave them a 4 instead of a 5 is I prefer the other kind.

Traditional Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
This was good, but not like any salisbury steak I've ever had. I always thought the gravy should be a brown mushroom gravy. I think that's what I'll make next time.

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
These are very easy and very good. I made them with small differences, instead of the onion and pepper, I added about 1/3 cup mostly drained chunky salsa. I also used 8 eggs and 1 cup egg substitute. I made them in mini muffin pans (Cooks about 12 minutes and makes about 48 mini muffins) for a church reception and got LOTS of compliments. I also made some using just eggs, cheese, diced ham and salt and pepper. They were super popular! I made them Friday and kept them in some tupperware until Sunday. Then reheated them at 200 degrees for about 15 minutes. I'm going to have to see how well they freeze...because I got requests for more!

Sausage and Bow-Tie Pasta Florentine

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
I really liked this, but the proportions seemed really off. If it's four servings, they must be HUGE. I cut it back to 1/2 lb sausage and 8 oz of pasta and 7 oz of spinach. I kept the 16 oz jar of alfredo, because I love having lots of sauce. It still made four big servings. As written, you'd get at least six. I used turkey sausage and lite alfredo for dietary reasons, and it was really good! I think fresh spinach would be outstanding in this.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
This is a great cake, but the oil! I use 1/2 oil and 1/2 applesauce and it comes out fine, while cutting back the fat a bit.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
These were different and good. I used a hot honey mustard and they still seemed a bit bland to me, so I used spicy brown mustard too. I took them to a family function and they all disappeared, so they must have liked them too.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
These are great cookies. Like other's, I used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. I found caramel chips, intended for melting for caramel apples, but used them in place of chocolate chips and they were yummy! I think they'd be great with any type chips, or none at all. The next day they are still chewy and good in my cookie jar. I did have to let them sit on the cookie sheets to cool quite a while, but that could be the caramel. This cookie is a keeper!

Cappuccino in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
I really liked this, although my husband thought the spices were too strong. It does remind me a great deal of some of the instant cappuccinos I've bought. I used Splenda, instead of sugar, because the texture was more like the other ingredients, and 1/2 and 1/2 FV and regular creamer. I made three batches, one without the spices to make hubby happy, mixed them all together and then put it in four big jars and gave it as gifts. I hope my friends liked it - but I suspect they'll never tell me if they didn't.

Skillet Zucchini

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I've tried to review my own recipe before, but it never shows up...so hopefully it will now that I gave it a rating. Hope no one cares that I gave myself five stars. Since submitting this recipe, I've lost a lot of weight and had to adjust this recipe a LOT to accomodate my new diet. I now spray the skillet with olive oil cooking spray and omit the butter entirely. I also leave out all but about 2T of water and sprinkle on just enough Italian flavored bread crumbs to thicken it. (I make my own from the heels of lite bread.) Finally, I use 2% cheese. Fat free just doesn't melt the same. And I often use canadian bacon, instead of regular. Thank you for the nice reviews. I do know it isn't pretty, but I just love this dish!

Ham and Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
Gave this recipe four stars on my husband's say-so. I thought it was very good, but I'm not much on beans so I bowed to his greater bean-eating experience. I decreased the sugar to 1/4 cup and put a bit more ham than called for. I also boiled the meat off ham shanks and used the broth, with fat skimmed, as part of the cooking liquid. I simmered it all day like I remembered my mom doing. I can't imagine eating it after just a couple hours. This recipe is a keeper. I may end up eating beans more than once in a blue moon with this one!

Dietetic Banana Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
Not the best banana bread I've ever had, but it is the best one-point banana bread I've ever had. I agree with adding the vanilla and I used egg substitute instead of just egg whites. I will definately make this again.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
I used Splenda in place of the white sugar to cut back the calories a bit, as well as 1/3 cup butter instead of 1/2 in the potatoes and it was very good. Next time I will cut back the amount of white sugar though, probably not using more than 1/2 a cup, if that. It was almost too sweet. The man who printed the recipe off for me had brought it to the office and added 1/3 cup of rum in it as well. That was a nice addition.

Homemade Fresh Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
I can't say anything about these exact directions...but the recipe itself is great. I just went to a cheesemaking class and these were the exact ingredients in the cheese we made. We didn't put the salt in until after the cheese had drained, mixing it into the cheese, not the milk. We also only went to 180 degrees temp. The fresh cheese is VERY good. I suggest mixing in a bit of pepper and herbs for a wonderful, spreadable herbed cheese - great on breads or crackers.

Spanish Rice I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2006
Just made this and it was GREAT! We substituted 2 cans of diced tomatoes for the 1 can plus juice and it was fine. I think next time we might cook the peppers and onion a bit more before adding the rice as they were a bit crisp for our taste. Great recipe. Will definately make again!

Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
Who says a pancake has to be fluffy? These are wonderful. The batter is VERY thick and you have to kind of spread it in the pan. They are heavy...but that works for us. Two regular pancakes and I'm hungry by 10 a.m. Two of these and I was full to noon! Yummy too! My 10 yr old son ate two of them on top of his breakfast cereal. We will definately make these again!

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2005
I did this a little differently so I could throw it together fast for a dinner party. I marinated the chicken then grilled in the Foreman grill a day in advance. I also sauted the mushrooms in advance. Then the day of the dinner, I just put the chicken, honey mustard, pre-cooked bacon, mushrooms and warmed in the oven for a short time, then covered with colby-jack cheese and popped under the broiler when company arrived. Everyone raved about it. Absolutly delicious. I will definately make this again!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2005
I wanted to do a second review, but the site won't let me. My first review follows this one. I tried making this exactly as written, except I used 1 1/4 lbs of beef and upped the flour to 1/3 cup because I like a thick broth. But I doubled the veggies and one can of beef broth (about 1 3/4 cups) didn't make enough liquid after it had cooked. So I added another can of broth and doubled the salt and pepper too. (Also added a small drained can of peas and mushrooms but that doesn't really change the taste.) It is a very good recipe as written! A basic and plain beef stew, but quite good. I'm leaving my five star rating firmly in place. (old review) I don't normally review by telling how I changed a recipe, but I did this one quite a bit. I added two cans diced tomatoes and used frozen stew veggies instead of fresh. It was very good and I'm sure it would be delish as-is, but I needed a bigger pot of stew than I was getting with the recipe so I did the tomatoes and frozen veggies to "stretch" it.

Corn Pudding V

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2005
I used fat free sour cream, one egg beater's egg and 1T sugar. My son didn't care for it...but he's weird. My husband and I both did. I'll likely make this again. It did take WAY longer than 45 minutes and I even ended up putting in the microwave at the end to get it done. The knife never came out clean.
