Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This is the 1st time my husband has ever said "I LOVE THIS!" about my cooking. I halved the recipe. Followed someone else's suggestion to sub. olive oil for half of the butter. I put half the cheddar cheese in the bread crumb mix, and the other half sprinkled on top. I also spinkled a little bit of garlic powder on top. I didn't have any parsley so subbed a little more oregano and thyme.

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Could've cooked longer - squash was a bit stringy. Only the top layer retained the flavoring (butter, cinnamon, allspice). Also didn't realize how difficult it would be to cut a squash in half!

Simple Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
My husband liked it and gave it 3 stars. I thought the sauce was too thick, I think next time I would put the sour cream in at the start of the simmer time rather than the end. VERY QUICK & EASY TO MAKE! I only had a half bag of egg noodles, but it ended up being plenty. I also added some corn midway through the simmer time. I didn't add the pepper until I dished it out at the table. I didn't add any salt. With the added corn, I think this makes 6 servings. When I reheat the leftovers tomorrow, I'll probably add a splash of milk so that it's not so dry.

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
Maybe I cut them too thick, but they were still pretty mushy. I couldn't remember if I was supposed to flip them halfway thru cooking-but it made a mess when I did. Stuck to the pan too.

Halloween Brain Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
Every one at the work potluck LOVED my brain! I used store bought guacomole, so I didn't get the eyeballs. And I used food coloring for the veins...but it never really dried, so it got all over my hands anytime I touched it. I served it in a 9x9 square glass dish and put red salsa around the base like the picture posted. Now what to do with my leftover purple cauliflower?

Simple Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
This was a wonderful use for my leftover "Halloween Brain Dip" cauliflower head, and a great base recipe! I also threw in some leftover carrots & potatoes from a roast, as well as a cup of herbed cheese dip spread...turned out amazing!

Basic Bechamel Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
I wasn't paying attention and it boiled over once. Otherwise, I followed the directions exactly (except that I only made 2 servings-which was more than enough for 2 people). I also added some grated Parmesan cheese and a dash of garlic powder. My husband (the more advanced cook) said it turned out better than his sauces.

Greek Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
We only used the recipe for the sauce (using greek yogurt). We put it on grilled chicken sandwiches. It was ok-would have been much better with the cucumber slices, but we forgot to buy them. Was a little better with some garlic powder.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Fabulous - this is my new staple recipe for this type of cookie. A perfect way to celebrate the reintroduction of chocolate back into my diet! (my nursing newborn baby couldn't handle it for 9 mos)

Eggnog Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
I do NOT like eggnog, but these are DELICIOUS! I added an extra dash of cinnamon to the batter too. This batter was much thicker than my usual Bisquick-so I had to adjust my cooking technique.

Easy Alfredo Sauce I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I didn't add anything extra, and it smells/tastes great! I followed the suggestion to melt butter first, and add cheese a little at a time. My 1.5 QT saucepan was not big enough - it boiled over a little.

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
SO MOIST and delicious! Also good with a vanilla butter frosting, but cream cheese frosting is still better.

White Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Did not produce as much batter as anticipated. Resulted in 2 fairly thin (~1 in) 8-9" circle cakes.

Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
It was really easy to make, and tasted fine (my husband thought it was good-and he's the critic), but I've had better.

Insane Oven Beef Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Quick & easy. Tender & moist. Yummy flavor! I ran out of olive oil and had to sub. half canola oil, which may be the reason my sauce spread out and burned to the pan rather than thickening up.

Moist Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
The syrup made the cake a bit sour. I have to add a liberal sprinkling of powdered sugar to each slice to make it more palatable. Didn't notice the the recipe note beforehand that cake is supposed to sit a day before serving. Took a bite right after I took it out of the pan and it was awful. Improved within 2 hours, and was much better the next day. Next time I think I'll use maybe half as much syrup. Not sure why other reviewers think cake was too dry...mine was practically soggy before the syrup fully set in, and has stayed very moist. I used fresh lemon for the juice and zest because my mom said it would taste better/stronger (I had originally planned on using bottled juice and substituting something for the zest).

Sausage Meatball Sub

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
I only used this recipe for making the meatballs, which I kept separate from my sauce. Meatballs were good, a tad dry from not simmering the sauce, and I accidentally burned one side of them. They were VERY easy to mix up the ingredients and make though!

Nana Lara's Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
Excellent flavor! I only had a 1.5 lb brisket so I quartered the recipe (and also omitted the pineapple). But I used the baking directions from the "Easy Bake Brisket" recipe because it seemed easier. I would highly recommend this ingredient combination though!

Butternut Squash Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
Had to make some variations based on what we had on hand: Substitutions: 4 flour tortillas instaed of 8 corn, 2 cloves garlic instead of 1, dandelion greens (from the back yard!) instead of spinach, mozzerella & cheddar cheese instead of goat & cotija, plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Omitted: tomatos & cilantro. Added: 1 can pinto beans. Different from anything we've ever had, but pretty good! Would've been better if hadn't burnt the tortillas. Even our picky toddler loved it. Was not very filling though.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Just the recipe I was looking for! I followed the top review by sifting the flour and adding 1/2 tsp vanilla. I'd give it 4.5 stars. All out of Bisquik and no baking soda on hand made finding a recipe for fluffy pancakes a bit challenging. These turned out alright. They weren't quite as puffy as I was hoping, but perhaps my baking powder was too close to expiration. I've never used a pancake recipe that put butter in the batter, and these did seem overly moist. I prefer my pancakes to absorb the syrup. I do wish I hadn't burned half of them.
