Fresh Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
Excellent cookies. Even my mother liked them and she hates ginger cookies. I used McCormick ground ginger instead of fresh grated ginger and they turned out just fine.

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Excellent recipe! I didn't have onion powder so I substituted some garlic powder instead. Still delicious!

Drop Nut Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
Excellent recipe. Definitely added to my yearly Christmas cookie list. I too used the vinegar trick and they turned out fantastic.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
Great recipe! I have been experimenting with making my own bread for a while and I was consistently failing and becoming increasingly frustrated! This recipe is perfect and the end product can't be beat by anything you'd get at the store. The first time I made this recipe I followed it to the letter and it turned out quite well. I only have one loaf pan, however, so I freeze the other two dough balls after the first rise. Then when you're ready to bake them you just put them in the loaf fan and let them defrost and then rise before you bake them as usual. I have made this using honey and I have also substituted sugar when I found my honey supplies low and they both turned out excellent. I do recommend adding at least 3 cups of the wheat flour before you turn the dough out onto your mat for less of a mess. I also am not fortunate enough to have a stand mixer so I knead the dough by hand. It will take you at least 20 min. to get it properly kneaded. Good luck!

Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
I give this one a solid 5 stars. It's easy and quick to make and it tastes delicious. What more could you want! Instead of buying to types of shredded cheese, I just got a package of "Italian blend." I will make these again!

Pumpkin Roll I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
I put way too much icing on this which just squeezed out the side as I rolled it, but still pretty darn tasty

Kelsey's Favorite Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
These were delicious! I didn't change a thing. It did seem to make a lot more filling than the peppers could handle however. The tops got a little crispy so next time I might reduce the cooking time.

Cheese's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
I made this as is (but without the meat) and it was delicious. It also reheated well. Will make again.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
Not too shabby. I substituted garlic powder for fresh cloves and small shells for penne simply because that was what I had. I would recommend getting the noodles started first. I didn't get them going until after the chicken and sauce were done and the chicken ended up drying out. Also, I couldn't find a 4.5 oz pkg of alfredo sauce mix so I used a 1.6 oz one and there was plenty of sauce. I would make this again.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
Sooooooo good! I felt like I was messing it up as I made it. It just didn't feel right pouring the sugar mixture on top of the dough, but it turned out great!

Baked Corn

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Delicious! This is so easy and a great addition to any meal. We normally have it with our holiday dinners. One year when I tried to leave it out of the lineup I was met with protests!

Salmon Patties I

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
An excellent recipe! I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. My father practically licked his plate! They did fall apart, but that's only because I over flip. I served them with "Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties" submitted by BABSKITCHEN.

Sunday's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
This was a very good and easy to make pie. I actually made it at my dad's (which means no measuring cups/spoons or rolling pin) and it still turned out great!

Shrimp Bisque

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
This recipe was ok. My sister definitely liked it and ate almost all of it, but I wasn't thrilled. I don't think that I'll make this one again.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
Simple and delicious! I did add a splash of milk to the frosting, however. I started out stirring it with a wooden spoon, but I was just pushing around chocolate powder. Once I used the electric mixer it worked much better!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Easy to make and delicious. It's a win-win! I will note that the first time, I used all-purpose flour instead of bread flour and it still turned out great. The second time, 2 cups all-purpose and 1/2 cup wheat flour which was also good. The second time I forgot to let it sit for 5 min after mixing and it was sticky so make sure you don't skip that part! I also just used flour instead of cornmeal on the baking sheet.

Caramel Macchiato Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
This didn't have the coffee flavor I was looking for, but that's because of a substitution I made. I couldn't bring myself to purchase instant coffee which I don't drink so I just got a cheap packet of instant cappuchino. Still a great recipe though and next time I'll try it with the instant coffee.

Good but not great. Definitely makes a lot. If I make it again I will be sure to cut it in half.

Jay's A Number One Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
Not bad. Definitely cook these on foil though. Mine fell apart as soon as I touched them. Other than that they were great!
