Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
I used this recipe several times, always thinking I'd done something wrong, before I realized I shouldn't have to make so many adjustments to get a decent pancake! These are always crumbly (fall apart when you add syrup) and lack any real flavor. I won't make these again.

Oaxacan Tacos

Reviewed: May 16, 2013
I made these tonight and they were a hit with my family! I took another reviewer's advice and marinated the meat in lime juice, salt and pepper for about 15 minutes. I cooked the onion and a red bell pepper with the meat, since I didn't think my kids would eat raw veggies on tacos. Then we added the jalepeno and cilantro right before serving. I also used half corn and half flour tortillas since I didn't have enough corn tortillas. Both were good, though the corn was better. My kids and hubby were surprised that their tacos didn't need cheese, sour cream or any other regular taco fixings. I'll definitely make these again!

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
This cake was completely flat - it didn't rise at all! I make cakes from scratch all the time, and I've never had a completely flat cake. I followed the directions exactly. For what it's worth, my kids did say it tasted good. I just couldn't serve it to company.

Peanut Butter Cup Dessert Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
This was just ok for us. I made my own sugar cookie dough, but otherwise followed the recipe. I'm not sure how the peanut butter "frosting" is supposed to spread, mine was super thick and almost impossible to spread. It tasted pretty good, and my kids liked it, but I can't rate a recipe 5 stars that I have to make a bunch of alterations to so it will work. I won't make this again.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
I have made this cake twice, following the directions exactly each time. Both times I've made it, the cake will not release from the pan! I grease and flour my pans, just like I do for every other cake recipe, but this cake just doesn't come out easily. When it does come out, its crumbly and so it's hard to frost. Today when I made it, I just decided to make cake balls instead of an actual cake since it was so crumbly. I'm sad that it didn't work for me, because I really like the taste! I won't be making this cake again.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
I used homemade alfredo and added mushrooms and extra pesto. Even my picky kids ate it! Very good.

Cheese's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
This was really good! My whole family enjoyed it. I used 1/2 sharp cheddar and 1/2 colby jack, and used panko bread crumbs instead of regular. I'll definitely make this again!

Angel Hair with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
This was ok. The only change I made was using penne instead of angel hair pasta. I felt that it was lacking something, but it's a good base recipe. I'll make some additions next time to suit my tastes.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

This is the best crust recipe! I double the recipe and make individual pizzas. It's our favorite Friday night dinner!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
These are so yummy! I used 2 1/2 cups of oats, but otherwise left everything the same. This will be my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe from now on!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
This is so good! I minced the onions and sauteed them with some garlic before I mixed them with the potatoes and also used an additional cup of cheese. I think I will try using two different cheeses next time. My whole family gobbled them up!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I'm rating it 5 stars because the icing is excellent, but the cinnamon rolls themselves are 4 stars. Next time I think I'll do the filling a little differently so it doesn't all drip out. Otherwise, these are very good.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
This is so yummy. My picky husband and kids all had seconds! I left out the wine, but left everything else the same. Will definitely make this again!

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
These were perfect for decorating! My kids had a lot of fun with them. I substituted butter for the margarine, but otherwise followed exactly. I think the taste was a little bland and they were too hard to eat after a few hours, so keep that in mind if that's your plan. We weren't eating them, so it was ok. This will be my go-to recipe for decorating gingerbread from now on.

Broccoli Chicken Potato Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
My family loves this! I used fresh chicken, added 1/2 an onion with the potatoes and used an additional can of cheddar cheese soup. It took about 30 minutes to get the potatoes cooked all the way through. Definitely a keeper!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
This was just ok. I followed the recipe exactly and it was easy to make. It just didn't have very much flavor. I won't make this again.

Nonna's Tuscan Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
This is excellent! I used balsamic vinegar because I didn't have any red wine vinegar. This is my new favorite dressing!

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
It was yummy, but it tasted just like my regular french toast recipe, so I probably won't use it again. I doubled the recipe and it was just enough for 20 slices.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
This is excellent! I used a frozen mix of raspberries, blueberries, and marionberries. The only thing I did differently was to coat my berries in a little bit of flour so the filling wouldn't be runny. Topped with vanilla ice cream, this is so delicious!

Guacamole

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
This is pretty good. I left out the cilantro, due to an allergy, but otherwise followed it exactly. It was spicy enough, but I just felt like it was missing something.
