Old Fashioned Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I shaped these by hand and will use less oil next time (1/2 cup is way too much for these!) This is a nice way to use up extra mashed potatoes. I served them with dollops of sour cream. I will definitely make them again!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Wow! This was sooo good! Definitely a good way to use up some day-old bread. Only change I made was to toss the bread cubes in some cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Oh, and I served this with a big dollop of whipped cream. No leftovers! I will definitely make this again!

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
I really enjoyed this salsa. Love the flavors! I used one Serrano pepper and one Fresno pepper, and that was the right amount of heat. Hot, but not unbearable... Made this in the food processor. (First chopped tomatoes and a small green pepper and put them in a small bowl. Then, chopped the cilantro, onion, and hot peppers. Finally, I mixed everything together. Oh, and I used sea salt...) I will definitely use this salsa again!

Creme Brulee Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
These are pretty good if you make them with a very light sugar mix topping. I had two teen boys taste-test these. The first batch was very sweet. They gave them 3 stars. I gave the recipe 4 stars, because I made another batch that had a VERY thin layer of the sugar mixture on them. Not sure if I would make these again, unless serving them for dessert. They came out a little thin, but the texture was fluffy as the submitter stated.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
Wow, these are good! I mixed the oil and seasonings (plus cumin and black pepper) with the fries in a bag. I cut the potatoes thin. After putting them on the pan, I ground sea salt on them. Then, I cooked on 425 degrees on a foil wrapped pan for 30 minutes, turning them half way through. We are addicted to them! They turned out crispy and delicious! We will make these alot now! I have heard that wedge potatoes are easy to cut with an apple corer. I might try that next time if I want to go with a larger french fry.

Pepperoni Crisps

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
I make these all the time in the microwave. So delicious! I don't add any seasoning. The pepperoni is salty enough as is.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
Wow, this tastes just like a jalapeno popper! I mixed in some shredded cheddar cheese and topped with a mixture of Panko crumbs and shredded cheddar cheese, rather than the parmesan cheese. Baked in the oven on 400 for 20 minutes and toasted a thinly sliced baguette under the broiler. This was delicious! Next time, I will add more jalapenos for an extra kick.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
These were good! I used 3 teaspoons of baking powder and added a bit of vanilla and nutmeg. Also, I let the eggs and milk come to room temperature before mixing them in. I used a non-stick electric griddle w/out oil of course.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
This makes cooking bacon so easy! I don't like cooking it on the stove b/c the grease splatters, but this eliminates that problem! Don't forget to cover the top lightly with foil so that it doesn't splatter all over your oven. Oh, and this usually takes 25 minutes to get the bacon as crispy as I like it.

Peanut Butter Cocoa Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
These were pretty good. The cookie came out thick and chewy, but it was very very dense. The only changes I made were to use white chocolate chips and smooth peanut butter, since that was all I had in my pantry. People who don't like peanutbutter said they were good, but they were just too dense for my tastes. I garnished with raspberries for a bit of color...

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
This is a good chicken recipe. It turned out moist and a little crunchy on the outside. I knew I wouldn't have a lot of time to make them, so I just threw the chicken into ziplock bags with the mayo, massaged the bag so that they were covered, and let them sit like that in my fridge overnight. The next day, I just took them out, dipped in a mixture of the bread crumbs and parm cheese, placed on a foil-wrapped sheet, and sprinkled with the garlic powder. I served it with Skillet Green Beans from this site.

Valencia Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
This was an easy and delicious summer dessert. I used pecan cookies for the crust and topped it with orange marmalade. I realized that the brand of orange juice makes all the difference. I used a generic brand and couldn't really taste the orange flavor, so I added a splash of Florida's Natural OJ, and the flavor was perfect. Everyone loved this. Thanks for sharing this Don!

Backyard Cooper Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
These were delicious! Moist and flavorful as advertised. I used a bit of extra cheese in the meat mixture. Also, I topped them with extra cheese and crispy bacon. I cooked them in a skillet on medium-high heat for 6 minutes per side, since I don't have a grill. Next time, I may add the bacon crumbled in the burger and let the mixture sit in the fridge for an hour to let the flavors soak in a bit. Also, I may throw in some diced jalapeño for a little kick. But, even without any changes, this recipe would be great!

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
These were good. Next time I may undertake them a little, because they were just a tad dry. The only changes I made were: 1) I melted the chocolate/butter in the microwave. 2) I didn't add chocolate chips to the cream cheese mixture.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
So good! I want to make some right now! I made them without a bread machine by following another reviewer's directions - Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl. Mix in the sugar, margarine, salt, and eggs. Add flour and mix well. Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour. Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Then pick up with rolling out the dough.

Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer!

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
I made this for a football game party, and EVERYONE enjoyed it. I served it on toasted hoagie rolls. Next time, I will pour the beer more slowly and watch it carefully, as the beer spattered when I poured it in to deglaze the bottom. The only changes I made were: 1) I made it in the electric skillet. 2) Half of the sausages I used were spicy.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
Loved it! The only change I made was to ensure the cream cheese was room temperature before beating. I will make this again!
