Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 12, 2014
Ok, I'm giving this a 4star because I made some changes and didn't think it would be fair to down a star on it. I only used 1/2 cup sugar (as I had read some reviews) and I thought 2 tsp vanilla was too much so I only used 1. And I added in about 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds. Then I baked this in a 8x11 pan,which I think was the perfect thickness. And baked for 30 mins. They came out to be a good chewiness for me. Will give this a try again, and probably use the full amount of sugar and a tad bit more of cinnamon.

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: May 3, 2014
I used to make something similar to this using a cream of chicken and hash brown potatoes (the diced kind). This is pretty good too with the cream of mushroom (and I don't like mushrooms). Only thing different is that I also tosssed in a can of corn on top of the ground beef. They have all sorts of creamed soups out there with herbs and garlic, might try one of those next time.

Baked Beans II

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
I halved the recipe, and I didn't put any onions in it.. as some reviewers did, I used apple cider vinegar. I thought it was a little too tart, maybe less mustard? This has potential with a little more work.

Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
I've been using a different scone recipe on this site, but several weeks ago I decided to try this one.. I've made this about 5 times now! One batch I added in cheddar and bacon..yummmm! This is my now go to recipe, as is, and as a base to add in. Only thing I suggest, is for a savory scone such as the cheddar and bacon, is to decrease the sugar a little bit.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
This rating is based on my taste testers...(I don't eat guacamole). My BF just loves and raved about this, he didn't think it could be so easy, its so easy enough that he makes it own his own now. Only suggestion is to just start with about 1/4 tsp salt and then adjust accordingly.

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
I give this 4 star for potential. I read some of the reviews and cut the sugar down to 2/3 cup which still seemed a tad sweet, added an extra egg, and used almond extract instead of vanilla (I used 1tsp but it was kind of strong so maybe next time 1/2 tsp just for the hint of it). I did not brush the egg white onto the crust. This took about 45 mins to bake at 375 (probably could've used another 5 mins), but it seemed to set ok after being overnight in the fridge. Will probably make this again with less sugar.

Oven Brown Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
This is based on my changes. After reading reviews I used low sodium beef broth, only 2 tbs butter (did not melt just threw it in the dish), 1/2 tsp seasoning salt, 1/2 tsp garlic salt 1/2 tsp garlic powder. And this did take 90 mins to bake.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
This was good but I would've liked a little more corn taste. I saw a review where flour/cornmeal ratio was changed up. Might try this again doing that and maybe substitute some buttermilk for some milk.

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
this was really good. Only a few changes not by choice, the box of cake mix I had was I believe only 16.5 oz, and I didn't have enough sour cream, probably only about 7/8 cup. By choice I omitted the chocolate chips. And instead of using the glaze recipe given here, I made a ganache topping and poured it over the cake. Still very good cake.

Country Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
This was pretty good, I made a mistake and made a couple changes. My mistake was I put too much milk, I accidentally poured in 2 cups, after stirring for a few seconds, I realized my mistake and had to pour what extra milk I could. The changes were I used 1 tsp almond extract in place of the vanilla and lemon. I poured the batter into a 9x13 and put it into a cold oven. Turned on the oven to 350 and baked for an hour. Even with the error in milk, this came out pretty good, in fact, I'm glad I put in the extra milk. It gave it just the right moistness, wasn't too dense.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
I made this as written and its great. It didn't say what milk to use, I used a 2% milk and it still came out creamy. I think next time I might try adding bacon to this.

Baked Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
This was just ok. I think the instructions need to be changed. I thought about changing it, but I did as is, and the sauce came out gritty. I should have followed my instincts and made the sauce like a roux first, which might help the grittiness. Might try it again.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
Easy....definitely use less salt. I thought 1 tsp was too much so I cut it down to 3/4 tsp and was still way too much. I ended up using a 2nd can of garbanzo beans. And definitely use a small clove of garlic. I had a larger one and its a bit overwhelming even after the 2nd can of beans.

Easy Platz (Coffee Cake)

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
good and easy. After reading some of the reviews. Only thing I did different was I just halved the recipe and baked it in a 9 in pie pan. 27 mins was perfect. I think this recipe would work well for any type of berry. I think next time I might try using buttermilk instead, or add a touch of almond extract.

Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
Simple. I had a few revisions though. I had used dried oregano instead of fresh.. I blended everything in a food processor first before boiling. 2 cups of water is way too much. I used 1 cup and thought that was too much, I ended up draining more than half the water out after boiling/simmering ...because I don't like runny saucy. Will make this again.

Meat Filled Manicotti

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
Simple and easy. I went with a few revisions after reading reviews.. first I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese.. then I did as some others suggested and did NOT boil the noodles first, and also just used 1 whole egg instead of the egg whites. I just used a plain "traditional" jar of spaghetti sauce. I will try this again and use a different sauce, or add more herbs to a plain sauce.

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
I'm not sure if this is a fair rating. I'm not a beer drinker, I used a bottle of beer (Lagunitas) that my friend left at the house. It still had a beer taste and yet also bland at the same time. However this was really quick to make.

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
after reading mixed reviews I thought I'd give it a try anyway. It spread just like one reviewer stated. I did try to taste it, and from what I could pick out to try, I'm glad that I only used 1/2 tsp of almond extract as another reviewer pointed out to do. Will not be making this one again.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2013
I don't eat cheesecake, but everyone I've made this for so far love it. In fact, the one I made last night, I forgot to put the eggs in at first. I only got 1 egg into the pumpkin mixture part. I don't think anyone noticed.
