Cottage Cheese Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
I recently went vegetarian and it's very challenging finding something that can give you the satisfaction of meat without a horrible aftertaste. I didn't chop my walnut fine enough and it gave a weird texture but that didn't stop me from eating it. Next time I will pulse them in the food processor. This recipe is a keeper. I will be slicing some in the morning and putting it on the griddle to eat with some eggs and fried potatoes. Thanks for sharing.

Naan

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I made this recipe because I went to the store looking for some and they were all out. I had just made hummus this morning and chips weren't gonna cut it. It did take a while to rise and I got a nap it so it was cool. I made these on the griddle. I wouldn't recommend rolling them thin, but shaping them by hand like you would do pizza dough. These things were sooooo good. Definitely a keeper. I might start using this as my pizza dough.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I live in a small city that doesn't have many ethnic restaurants. I haven't had this dish in years so I have been missing it alot. I omitted most of the salt in the sauce and it was seasoned just right. This was very tasty and just as I remember it. Thanks so much for sharing this delicious recipe. It's definitely a keeper!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I'm on a low carb diet and wanted to make a taco salad. The packaged seasoning had 4g carbs per 1/6 of a 1.25 oz packet. I always have a bunch of spices on hand, so this recipe was easy to put together. The seasoning blend was so awesome. Thanks for sharing. I will be making big batches of this!

Five Flavor Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
I made this cake as a request from my landlord. He said his mom used to make this and this is the only cake he really likes. Once he tasted it, he said he has to have one every week. Thanks PJ.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
This recipe was so easy. I always have these ingredients on hand. I love almonds so I toasted some sliced almonds and sprinkled them on top. No need for paying retail for these anymore! Thanks for sharing.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
I made these this morning because I had some blueberries for a few months that I had to use up. I followed the recipe with the exception of a teaspoon of lemon flavoring. They baked up really nicely. Next time I will do a streusel or cream cheese glaze to give them that extra special touch!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
I made these cookies trying to use up some ingredients that I've had for a while. They were definitely soft. I added some chocolate chips. Next time I will reduce the cinnamon when adding chocolate chips to this recipe. Very good. Thanks for the recipe.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
I made this tonight in my countertop convection oven which has a "convection/broil" setting. I was trying to figure out how to get it to brown nicely and then I placed an empty cake pan under it and it browned nicely. This is a very flavorful recipe. I think I might use it on shrimp too. Thanks for sharing.

Autumn Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
This is a very good and simple recipe. I made the extra topping for the apples. I also baked it in a water bath. One suggestion I have is to make some type of foil packet or buy commercial foil to cover the bottom of the cheesecake pan. My foil wasn't a whole piece and my crust was a little water logged.

Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
This was really good because I used ingredients I already had on hand. I added the extra cup of oats and a little cinnamon. This is my new oatmeal cookie. I like it because it is not full of spices that leave a strong aftertaste. Thanks!

Mock Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
This really works. I left the tofu in the freezer for a month because I got busy. I sliced it and added a dry seasoning packet to it and put it on the griddle. I can definitely use this in my vegetarian recipes. My husband was skeptical about it. He ate it. I guess I will be stocking up on it and looking for new flavors to introduce. Thanks!

Jay's Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2003
I wasn't impressed with this recipe at all. I would say that it tasted like green onions and soy sauce. I even increased the amount of jalapenos and it still wasn't even spicy. I wouldn't recommend using a habanero for more kick, maybe use less soy sauce, green onions, and more herbs and spices. This does not compare to any jerk chicken I have ever had.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2002
I tried to make these pretzels this morning and started off very good. Kitchen was smelling like I knew what I was doing. I got to the part where I needed to cut the dough in 12 pieces and everything started going downhill. I tried to roll it and it got stuck to the counter. then I added flour and then I still couldn't roll it thin. By the time I stretched and pulled the dough and tried to form it to a pretzel, I was EXTREMELY exhausted. I dipped it in the baking soda solution and the pretzel fell apart. This is where I gave up. I am letting the 1 pretzel and the other "rolls" (this is what I decided was best". I will let you know what I came out with. Oh, let me add that I am a beginner bread maker and this was really a challenge for me!

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2002
I made this cheesecake the other day. This recipe is a little different than the one I usually make around this time of year. I was suprised to see how well the prepared graham cracker crust did in the end. It was cracked all over when I poured the filling in. The results were fabulous. I will make sure that I spread my first layer on the bottom a little more evenly so that you can see both layers in each slice. I didn't even need the whipped cream!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2002
Reading the all instructions is important! I added all ingredients, kneaded, and cut the biscuits out. I came out with about 21 biscuits. Maybe I need to pull out my seam guide that I use for sewing to determine what an inch is. I am now reading that I was supposed to get 6 huge biscuits. If you didn't read the instructions thoroughly and came out with what I did, these would be good for a brunch filled with jams and jellies. Also, I used butter flavored shortening in a stick form. This gave my biscuits a nice color before putting them in the oven and also made it much easier for me to measure.

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
I made this recipe because I had some limes I needed to use up. The rest of the ingredients I usually have on hand so it wasn't a problem finding them. I used chicken tenderloins and doubled the recipe because I was cleaning out my fridge. I let some marinate for a few hours (because hubby was hungry) and the remaining overnight. I didn't have any skewers so I didn't cut them up. I put them on the George Foreman and let them cook for about 5 mins. Served them to hubby last night with Oodles of Noodles and 3-cheese biscuits. Served them this afternoon with green beans and 3-cheese biscuits. This is an excellent recipe for cook once, eat many times. My husband is raving over the flavor of the chicken. I will definitely make this again!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
I didn't see what size pan to use, so I used a 13x9 inch pan. This was definitely not enough mixture for this pan. I made another batch and added it to the pan and it filled the pan up, but the final brownies were not thick like brownies. They were more like cookie height. Maybe I will use a smaller pan or quadruple the recipe to fit my pan. I tried them with the icing and they were too sweet for me, but my husband loved them. I will definitely make these again. The pan thing didn't get me down but just challenged me a little to use my head. This is the first time I have ever made brownies from scratch. This was just too easy to make. Next time I will try them with some nuts. Thanks

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
I will use a little more peanut butter next time. I made half the batch with Reese's pieces. That added the peanut butter flavor I was looking for. I will definitely make these cookies again.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
These cookies are heavenly. I would've never thought to combine oatmeal and chocolate chips - and NEVER walnuts. These are a big change from my usual cookies I make. I used milk chocolate chips instead to produce a milder flavor in the cookie. I will definitely be making these again.
