No Bakes

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
These are my husband's favorite cookies, and they are so easy to make. I just cut it down to one cup of sugar because I didn't want these to turn out too sweet, but other than that, excellent cookies.

Blackened Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
I want to add an update: When you make this pizza, and if you have leftovers, it tastes even better after letting it sit in the fridge overnight!! YUM.

Blood Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
I have never seen blood oranges before. I called my local supermarket and had them special order them for me just to make this recipe :-) I thought it produced a very juicy tasting chicken. I was surprised that it did not have an overwhelming orange taste to it. The sauce is yummy, and I didn't have any white wine, but I did have red wine, so I used that in the sauce and it still tasted great. That is the only thing I did differently about this recipe, otherwise, I followed it exactly. I wouldn't change anything. Great dish!

LC'S Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
Yum! These are a great, healthy way to sneak vegetables into your kids. My three-year-old had no problem polishing off his helping! The spices add to the sweet flavor with a bit of kick. The only thing I would recommend is baking the fries at 425 for 40 minutes on a cookie sheet instead of pan frying them. I tried pan frying a handful of them and then baked the rest in the oven, but the pan fried ones didn't turn out nearly as good as the baked ones. It is true that sweet potato fries don't get as crispy as regular potatoes, so don't expect these to be crunchy; just expect them to be delicious!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
YEAH! This was the chocolate cake I had been striving for! Add just a little bit more cocoa powder if you're an extreme chocolate lover and you'll be satisfied. The coffee really adds that something extra I had been wanting in a chocolate cake.

Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Oh good Lord. YUM. That's about all I can say. I had cream cheese stuffed french toast once in my life at IHOP, and this recipe is right on par with it. This is so simple to prepare and cook, and it looks very elegant when it's all put together. Like a lot of people said, this french toast is very filling and one little triangle of this will probably do the trick to fill you up, especially if you serve it with coffee, juice, or fresh berries on the side. I thought I would add this note: To cut a few calories, you can also just spread light cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese between the slices of bread instead of mixing in the sugar/vanilla mixture, and instead of putting butter in the pan to brown the toast, use a no calorie PAM spray and leave out topping your toast with whipped cream. Absolutely wonderful recipe. I will be making this again!

Sunshine Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2013
I used to have these when I would visit my great aunt in her retirement home. They called them "Popeyes" there. I have not had them since then, and I came across this recipe yesterday and was reminded of how much I used to like them. This is such a quick and easy breakfast that you can really make for a casual or fancy occasion, depending on what you dress the plate up with. I just made them this morning before my husband left for work and used heart-shaped cookie cutters to make heart shaped holes in the middle for Valentine's Day :)

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
I loved this recipe. It's a little different than the meatloaf recipe I usually use, so I liked changing things up a little. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it makes a very sweet tasting meatloaf. I wasn't sure about the ginger at first, but you won't even know it's there once the meatloaf is cooked. I read in the reviews that some people thought the brown sugar and ketchup mixture should be placed on top of the loaf, and not under it. I will say that yes, the mixture is pretty runny when the meatloaf first comes out of the oven, but if you remove the loaf and put it on a serving platter and let the sauce sit for a while, it thickens and makes a very nice sauce to pour over the top of the meatloaf slices.

Garlic Lover's Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
I made this recipe exactly as written, EXCEPT for three additional spices added: Italian, oregano, and basil. This made a nice, full 13x9 inch pan dinner, and my son and husband loved it. My husband ate two big pieces of chicken and has dished up the leftovers for work tomorrow, but he couldn't stop picking at the leftovers as he was dishing it up. He deemed this as possibly his new favorite meal, so thank you very much for posting this recipe. I will be adding this to our monthly menu for sure. I didn't think any of the flavors were too overpowering, but we are all big cheese and garlic lovers, so I can see where someone who wasn't so keen on the Parmesan and garlic flavors would probably want to cut back.

Chef John's Twice-Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
This is so easy. I always thought twice baked potatoes looked nice, but I didn't know how easy they were to make. I wish I would have had some chives to go on top of these, that would have made them perfect! I'm keeping this recipe for sure. It is something I think you can tailor to suit multiple occasions and dishes.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
This is the same recipe I've used for chocolate chip cookies my whole life. Never, ever fails. The secret to getting them perfect is to add the exact measurement of each ingredient and do not cook past 10 minutes if you want a gooey cookie.

The Best Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
When I make steak, I use venison, as my husband and I are both hunters. Venison, if you haven't tried it before, is a very lean meat, but it can taste quite "gamey" when it comes to steaks, since it's just the slab of meat with no processing. This marinade makes the venison steaks have nearly the same taste of beef steaks. I let it marinade anywhere from 6-12 hours in the fridge and the steaks come out tender and juicy. It is a nice flavorful recipe and I don't think the vinegar is too strong at all.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
These are really good. I made them on Christmas morning for my family and they were all in heaven. The cream cheese frosting is the best part. I made the bread dough by hand, though, as I do not have a bread machine and it still turned out fine.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2014
Great recipe that produces yummy, nostalgic sugar cookies, and I love that you don't have to chill the dough before you bake. I made the recipe exactly as written and found it to be a little dry, so I just added about 2 tsp. of milk and it was perfect. This is a keeper and will be a go-to for Christmas baking.

Emily's Famous Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
This was a very simple recipe, which is great for busy moms like me! The pie turned out very crisp and sweet, just the way I like apple pie! I added a pinch extra of clove and I also added some brown sugar into the filling, as well as sprinkling it over the top of the pie, and it was delicious!

Walnut Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
Excellent. These are so easy to make, and well worth the time put into it. I made my own homemade bread dough to go with it, which added to the deliciousness of it all. I will be using this again and again.

Easy Homemade Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
If I would have known it was this easy to make homemade pie crust, I would have started doing it a long time ago. Excellent!
