Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
This was the perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe! I did not use walnuts so the cookies were a bit on the sweet side. Also, I would make sure to use enough flour. Although the recipe calls for only three cups, sometimes the humidity and altitude can effect the outcome. My cookies cooked out a bit flat as I need to add just a little more flour. For those of you that are complaining about the browning; I would suggest putting a sheet of foil between the cookie dough and the pan. My cookies browned perfectly. Lastly, do not (and I mean ever!) substitute margarine for butter. They will taste terrible. Real products; real cookies.

Tamale Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
This recipe was okay. I will say you have to eyeball the texture. I put almost another whole cup of corn meal and a half teaspoon of baking powder to get it to the firm texture that I desired. Also, I added a little more seasoning. You really have to play this recipe by ear; know your oven and desired outcome and work from there. Overall, it was pretty tasty and not a total waste of time. An easier way may be to buy a bland box of cornbread mix, dump the other ingredients in and bake.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Love it. I use any part of chicken I wish, not just the breast and only one large can of Grands Biscuits for the dumplings. Simply Divine!!!! You can also subsitute cream of mushroom soup for a nice change. Very simple, and very good!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
This is absolutely amazing!!!! So flavorful and easy. My only suggestion: Make extra, your family will devour this!!!! Those that are complaining about it being too salty or slimy...simply cut back on the seasoning and adjust the cooking time. Some Crock Pots are just different. You can also cut the cream cheese in half and perhaps just use a little cream instead to scale back the rich flavor. Part 2: Since making this the first time, I have recently began watching my calories. My suggestion for all you weigh watchers: Eliminate the margarine and use reduced fat cream of chicken. I'd keep the creamed cheese full fat, as this can really molest the flavor. Also, the calorie count does not include the pasta. I simply added my pasta (about three or four cups) and then spread the recipe out over 8 servings versus 4. Only 259 calories a serving including the pasta! I hope this helps.

S.O.B. (South of the Border) Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Love it! Quick, Easy, and Low-Cal? And it taste great too!!!! I added a little cayenne pepper to mine just to give it an extra kick. IT was great! If you're watching your weight like me, you can use low fat sour cream and less tortilla chips, or just nix the chips altogether. Still wonderful...

Slow Cooker Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
This was absolutely delicious. I did use my own seasoned ground turkey to cut down on the spice and fat but even still, it was absolutely divine! Ps For those that find the recipe mushy you might need to drain your sausage longer or cook the dish on a higher setting for less than two hours. For the dryness...I found it is best to turn it on the lowest setting possible and cook no more than 3.5 hours. It really is about the temperment of your slow cooker.

Yummy Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
Very, Very good recipe. Except I would strongly suggest to use natural peanut butter like simply Jif and real butter..eliminating the hydrogenated oils makes all the difference. Otherwise YUM!
