Farmer's Market Vegetarian Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
I don't like eating veggies unless I season them, so I added salt & pepper & garlic powder when I suateed them. I also added 3/4 cup of cilantro to sprinkle inside the quesadillas. I'd definitely make this again. Update from the following day: I made them again! The first time I made them using my George Foreman grill, but this second time I wanted to use my oven. I left them in the oven for 5 MINS @ 425. I liked them better on my George Foreman grill though. It's quicker and much easier.

Spinach Enchiladas Verde

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I followed the recipe as directed. And used the suggestion of 1 of the reviewers: I dipped each of the tortillas in oil for less than 3 seconds & that prevented the tortillas from falling apart. I didn't even use toothpicks. I've made this recipe twice. The second time I made it, I didn't realize I had no sour cream anymore, so I used 2 tablespoons of mayo & the recipe was still delicious! Also, since I like salsa a lot, I added a bit more salsa on top of the enchiladas & oh, man, it was so good!

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
These rolls were a little crispy on the outside, and soft in the inside. They were delicious! I cut the recipe in half since it was just 2 of us. I got 8 big rolls. I did have to use one extra cup of flour. I baked them at 400 for 17MINS. Some people were saying that their rolls were undercooked, but that's because you need to leave them in there a bit longer.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I followed the recipe as directed. And I also followed the suggestion of 1 reviewer: I added 1teaspoon of cinnamon to the apples after I was done slicing them, & I brushed egg white on the crusts. I didn't make my own crust. I bought 1 box of Betty Croker pie crust mix. And even though the pie was great, next time I'll buy 2 boxes of Betty Crocker b/c 1 box wasn't enough. The bottom crust was too thin, but the lattice top was fine. I poured the filling onto the apples & saved 1/4 of a cup of it to pour some over the top crust. Overall, the pie was delicious! This was my first time baking a pie & it was my practice pie b/c I'm making it for Thanksgiving this year.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I really like this lemonade. If you think it's too sweet, use as much sugar as you want. I use 1 1/3 -1 1/4 cup of sugar. Depending on the size of your lemons, 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice equals 7-8 lemons. Don't forget to leave the pulp. It makes the lemonade look so pretty and it tastes good, too.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. I have done this recipe quite a few times since I found it. It is definitely a recipe I am keeping to feed my family. I'd recommend others to try it. Oh, and I did let the batter sit a while and got nice, fluffy pancakes.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
These were absolutely delicious! I'm keeping this recipe! I've made them twice so far. 1st time: I followed the recipe exactly; however, I'll reduce the sugar (the one for coating) a BIT b/c I had some left over. I wanted it to seem like a donut so I used chocolate glaze to pour on top of the muffin. I used the glaze from this site (Sanity Chocolate Glaze). 2nd time: I really wanted to them to look like donuts so I used a measuring cup to form a circular 'cup' and poured the batter into 3 of the foil 'cups'. I didn't pour too much since they puff up. After they were done, I took them out and cut a hole in the middle of each foil muffin cup, then after I coated then, I brushed chocolate glaze! They totally looked like donuts! And were delicious! I ADDED THREE PHOTOS of THEM to THIS RECIPE, so you can CHECK IT OUT if you wanna see how they came out :) I just wished I had sprinkles and it would have been perfect donuts!

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
I ALWAYS follow any recipe EXACTLY as stated, and to be honest, this pie came out delicious on my first try! I often read reviews of people who CHANGED so many things and still give the recipe a bad review. I don't know why people do that! They shouldn't complain it was bad UNLESS they actually followed the recipe exactly. ANYWAY, sorry for my rant. I followed the recipe EXACTLY and it was delicious. I definitely recommend it. I DIDN'T change anything. The walnuts and raisins are optional, but I added the walnuts only & I'm glad I did because it gave the pie a nice crunchyness. I used 6 granny smith apples.

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I put the ham in a roaster pan and poured 1 cup of water inside the pan as the ham instructions stated. It also said to cover the ham with foil, so I covered it with foil ONLY for 1st hour but I won't be doing that again because the outside of the ham started to get crispy too soon, so next time I'll cover the ham in the last 35mins of baking instead. Other than that, I followed the recipe as stated and was quite satisfied with the results. I think I'm going to add 1 1/2 - 2cups of water inside the roasting pan because that water gets the ham moist and it serves as a "dip" when you glaze the ham. Any glaze that falls down to the bottom of the pan, falls into that water and it is delicious! Once the ham is done and you are ready to serve the ham slices, dip the slices of ham into that glazed water mixture at the bottom of the pan. It makes the ham so moist and you get to taste the glaze a bit more.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I've made this a few times, and followed the recipe exactly. I think it tastes quite good and it is filling. I usually drink this smoothie before going to class when I'm in a rush. It's very quick to make and it's healthy for you. Oh, when I'm out of strawberries, I use powdered chocolate (the one you use to make chocolate milk for kids). It tastes just as delicious as when you add strawberries, so if you run out of strawberries, you can substitute it with chocolate. I definitely recommend this for people who want to make a quick healthy, delicious AND FILLING breakfast smoothie. If you usually don't have time to sit and eat breakfast at the table like me, I highly recommend you to try this recipe at least once. It's very good :)

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly and it came out great! It was my first time making a pizza crust so I was a bit nervous, but it was delicious! I also used "Easy Pizza Sauce III" from this site and wow, it was so delicious. I'm definitely making my own pizza from now on. :) I would recommend the recipe. Just follow instructions!!!

I followed the recipe as written, and it was awesome! I've made this so many times now! It's so good. I've recently started to add VODKA to it haha it's even better. I got a nice buzz from it :) This recipe is a keeper! I'd recommend others to try it out as written, and then later, add some vodka to it ;) Oh, yeah!!!

Albondigas

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
I'm not a fan of soups, but I decided to make this when it was cold & raining. I followed the recipe as written, and it came out wonderful. I really enjoyed the flavor of it. I'm definitely going to make this again. It's a keeper. I'd recommend others to try it :) UPDATE APRIL 2011: I added 1 TSP of Garlic Powder, Paprika, & Cayenne Pepper. I also added celery; it adds such a nice flavor. I don't add the salsa in the pot anymore. It tastes good w/o it, but I place the salsa on the table so we can add as much salsa as each person would like to their own bowl. BTW, the fresh cilantro as garnish is GREAT! Try it out at least once.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly and it came out wonderful. I also used "Jay's Signature Pizza Crust" from this site and together it was delicious. I would definitely recommend this recipe. Follow the recipe as written! I think the amount of oregano is FINE. I'm surprised some people said to use less than what the recipe calls for, but I think it gives way more flavor. Just take it the sauce and if you think it has enough oregano, just don't add the rest.

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly except for the frying and using wings :) I had 2 chicken drumsticks so I used those instead and the recipe was delicious! I also didn't have enough oil, so I baked them instead. I baked them for 48mins on the wire rack at 400. I sprayed the chicken with PAM so they wouldn't stick to the wire rack. I also placed a cookie sheet underneath the chicken so all drippings would land there and not the bottom of the oven. I used El Tapatio hot sauce. I would definitely make this recipe again! You can use any part of the chicken with this recipe, and it'll still be delicious. I guess it depends on what hot sauce you use, but El Tapatio hot sauce I used wasn't TOO hot; it was just right. Perfect! It was enough to taste the spicyness. It was really good :) I'm definitely making this again!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
This recipe turns out wonderful. Some Reviewers thought it was sweet, but I thought it was fine. I thought they were exaggerating. If I don't have bread flour, I substitute it with All Purpose Flour. I've made it a few times and will continue to do so. This is how I make it: 1) Get a large pot, heat the water to warm & let sugar dissolve. Once it's lukewarm, sprinkle in yeast & gently stir once. Let it get foamy for 13-15MIN (I turn on the oven @ 350 for 1MIN, turn it off, & then place the pot of yeast mixture inside to rest. That way it's in a warm environment). 2) Mix salt & oil into yeast. Mix in 3 cups of flour, stir, then add remaining flour. 3) Knead dough INSIDE the pot until smooth, about 6-8MIN. It's not difficult to knead in the pot. It's quick, easy, and less messy. My counter and laziness thanks me :) 4) Oil the pot, coat the dough, cover w/ plastic. 5) Turn on oven @ 350 for 1MIN to create a warm environment. Turn it off, and then place the pot of dough inside. Let rise for 1 HR as directions say. 6) After the 1st rise, punch down dough, turn on oven again @ 350 for 1MIN, turn it off, and place the loaves inside to rise for 30MIN as recipe states. Right before I bake them, I brush melted butter over the tops. I bake them exactly for 31MINS. I love this bread. Thank you so much for posting it. If I just need 1 loaf, I halve the recipe and do it the same way as I described. It's delicious. :)

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
I've made this recipe MANY times. I followed the recipe as written. It's great! I like my food spicy, so I use 3 jalapenos! Garnish with some cilantro on top ;) It's good. By the way, you should try pork skins with these beans. Just use the pork skins as "tortilla chips" by scooping up some beans. It tastes so good. The whole combo is absolutely delicious. Try it out at least once :)

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
***First, I want to say that this recipe doesn't seem authentic. I'm Mexican. I have eaten so many different carne asada tacos, believe me; however, I still thought this recipe was good! I use my own homemade salsa, so I don't make the one from this recipe. Also, I don't use limes. My parents have a lemon tree and give me a bunch of lemons so there's really no use for limes. They're quite similar. I omitted the white pepper b/c I don't use it for anything & it's really not necessary in this recipe. Other than that, I follow the recipe exactly. I marinate the meat for 1HR. When I make the onion relish, I place the chopped onion in a small bowl and squeeze 1 lemon, letting the onion "absorb" the lemon; stir, then add cilantro. When it comes to cooking the meat, it takes about 17 minutes. After the meat is cooked, I use a strainer to get rid of any leftover marinated mixture or else it'll make the tortillas soggy and no one wants a soggy taco. Too messy! This recipe is so good! It's definitely a keeper. The meat is very good. I can't quite explain it, but it has almost a sweet flavor; it's so good. I think the only way to know how good it tastes is for you to try it at least once. ***I've used the marinating mixture for CHICKEN too and it's so delicious! It makes the chicken quite moist, juicy, it's well, delicious!*** I recommend this recipe for sure. :)
