J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
These are really good! I followed the advice of others including: not overmixing the dough, only using as much milk as I need, butter should be cold, and brushed w/ melted butter before baking. Also, I used butter instead of shortening.

Mom's Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
This recipe is delicious as long as you double the sauce and add the cream cheese mixture to the noodles before layering. I used Johnsonville mild Italian sausages (casings removed) instead of beef which gave it a nice flavor and only used half an onion. This is not the shortest dinner, but it is very good!

Johnsonville Easy Sausage Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
Another superb pizza by Johnsonville! I used homemade pizza dough for the crust, used Johnsonville's hot Italian links, added minced garlic to the sausage (which I cooked before adding to the dough...made it less greasy!) and, as always, brushed the outside of the crust with extra virgin olive oil mixed with dried herbs (basil, oregano, parsley, & onion powder). I would also like to pass on a little tip on removing sausage casings: cut 3/4 of the way down lengthwise into the link and pull the casing off. Soooo good!

Quattro Formaggi Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
This recipe was delicious and with a small edit to the directions, it would be five stars for sure! The cheeses work well together and the sausage is very flavorful (especially Johnsonville's hot Italian links which I used). The only trouble I had was that the recipe doesn't mention what to do with the 2T of oil. This should be added in when stirring the yeast mixture into the flour mixture. If not, you will probably have a dry crust. This is the only necessary change to the recipe. Also, a nice addition is to brush the outside of your crust with extra virgin olive oil mixed with dried herbs (basil, oregano, parsley, & onion powder) and add minced garlic to the sausage when cooking for extra flavor. And I would just like to pass on a little tip on removing sausage casings: cut 3/4 of the way down lengthwise into the link and pull the casing off. Overall, my family and I really enjoyed this, and I cannot wait to make it again! Thanks, Johnsonville!

Boiled Water

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
I was unimpressed by this recipe. The submitter said it could be used in gourmet recipes, so I took his advice and used it in ramen for my dinner guests. Had to toss it all in the garbage and order out from a local restaurant. Not only was it a BIG waste of ingredients, but I now have to wash all those china bowls for nothing. I will not be making this again!

Grandma's Very Easy Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2013
I halved the recipe, b/c I wanted to use a crumb topping. The crust tasted fine, but I had to roll it extremely thin for it to cover my 9" glass pie plate. I prebaked this for 7 minutes on 425 before adding my fruit filling.

Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
The only changes I made were to mix in some cinnamon and to bake for 1hr and 50 min. I probably could have kept it in the oven a tad longer. In the future, I would add some vanilla to the milk for extra flavor. I, however, enjoyed the taste and loved the consistency.

Swedish Pickled Cucumbers

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
Simple and good! I sprinkled paprika on top for a bit of color. I could see these having a few seasonings like onion powder or a dash of cayenne pepper.

Cinnamon Apple Healthy Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
This tastes good - can't taste the spinach at all. Just apples and cinnamon. I was expecting a smoother consistency, but it ended up being a mix between chunky and liquidy. I think this is because there is no banana, yogurt, or peanut butter to make it smooth. So, 5 stars for taste. Of course smoothies are versatile, so you can always add protein powder for extra benefits.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
Here's a quick pizza dough for those days when you don't have a lot of time after work. I made this with the BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza recipe on this site, and the combination was superb! Sometimes, when I eat pizza, I eat the crust extra fast, because it is not good, but this crust is great! After reading reviews, I suggest adding basil, oregano, parsley, & onion powder to the olive oil before adding to the dough. Also, let the dough rise in a warm dark place for a 1/2 hr (if you have the time), and spread a mix of olive oil and garlic powder along the outer crust for extra flavor. Also, I used a pizza stone, which always helps pizza cook evenly.

BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
We love, love, love this recipe! In fact, my husband just had to share a picture on Twitter of the slices I gave him, because he was very excited about how this tasted. I used the "Quick and Easy Pizza Crust" recipe from this site (with lots of extra herbs in the dough). I made a few small changes to the toppings that put this beyond 5 stars: 1) Instead of seasoning the BBQ sauce with chipotle chili powder, I spread the sauce and then lightly sprinkled some cayenne pepper and some garlic powder on top. 2) After the sauce and seasonings, I put an even layer of grated parmesan cheese on top. 3) Then, I put an extra 2T of BBQ sauce on top of the pulled pork layer, b/c I knew it would dry out a bit in the oven. (Don't skip this extra step - it's important!) 4) Sprinkled shredded cheddar on top (b/c pizza doesn't seem right without cheese). 5) Finally, I brushed the outer crust with a mixture of olive oil & garlic powder. I can't wait to make this recipe again!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
We really enjoyed this with a few changes as suggested by other reviewers: 1. Pounded the chicken; 2. Use 1/2 cup of chicken broth instead of wine; 3. Added chopped basil to the cream; 4. Brushed the rolled chicken w/ egg and rolled in breadcrumbs instead of flour; 5. Finished the chicken in the oven (350 deg.); 6. Simmered the cream, broth, bouillon, and corn starch together for 10 minutes before pouring over the chicken. All of the flavors worked well, but the creamy sauce w/ the basil really made it extra special!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
Tasty! I normally like my cookies soft, but I actually unintentionally underbaked them (how's that for alliteration!) which made them too soft. I should have put them in the oven a bit longer, especially since I made them large. Despite this blunder, they were still worth it! Very good.

Swedish Wafers

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
These cookies are budget-friendly and simple to make and are therefore perfect for last minute guests, because they are also surprisingly delicious. These cookies had the perfect amount of sweetness, especially when I sprinkled powdered sugar on them. They were not too puffy OR too crispy. Perhaps I made them too large, because I didn't get 40 cookies out of them. In fact, it was more like 10-12 cookies. However, I thought mine were a good size. Oh, and they make a very sticky dough, but don't worry about adding extra flour. They are good as is! I will definitely be baking these again.

Cream Cheese Tart Shells

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
Wow, this makes buttery, flakey shells that are so delicious and easy to use! I made a sugar-free chocolate mousse to pipe into these and topped it with a raspberry to add a little color. The only change I made was to press the dough into 6 regular sized muffin cups, b/c I wanted a larger cup. So, they baked an extra 10 minutes, since they were larger. I will definitely use this recipe again!

Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
Didn't really like these, because of the texture. All of my cookies usually come out of the oven soft and chewy, but these started to be dark brown around the edges while the middles were oily and almost as gooey as warm, raw cookie dough. Other than that, the flavor was pretty good for an all-shortening recipe. I just can't get past the fact that the middles were undone. Probably won't try these again.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
Flavors were good. Next time, I will cook them for a few more minutes to make them more tender. Served this with the Cinnamon Belgian Waffles recipe from this site (and alot of whipped cream, of course!).

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Followed this recipe exactly, except I switched out the chocolate chips for some chopped up Andes mints. I made some with regular Andes mints and some with Peppermint Crunch Andes mints. Both were delicious and the red and green colors were perfect for Christmas! Yum!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Have made these several times, and they are very good! Of course anything with bacon is good. :) Had several cups of the potato filling left after I re-filled the potatoes, so I put scoops of the filling onto parchment paper on a pan and froze them. Once they were frozen, I put them in ziplock bags. You can also make potato pancakes from the leftover filling.

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
Oh, wow! So happy I chose this recipe for the first time I made homemade waffles! These were crispy on the outside, but very light. Not at all, dense, just the way I like them! I didn't measure the cinnamon or vanilla (tend to be a bit heavy-handed with those) and added a dash of nutmeg. Yum! I can't wait to make these again! I even doubled the recipe so that I could freeze leftovers and toast them tomorrow.
