Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
This worked out great. The mixture started to look crumbly at 4 cups of sugar, so I stopped there. If you want help with the chocolate, I usually add 1 tbs for every cup of chips. This helps thin the chocolate a little and also helps it melt so you can get a better and easier coating. I also recommend using a crockpot instead of a double boiler, if you can. It's an easier process and you are less likely to burn yourself. For the reviewer who ended up with a sticky mixture, you may have melted your butter. It's important that you only soften it. Melted butter means the mixture will be runnier and therefor sticky. To fix this, try freezing the mixture for 30 mins. If that fails, add more sugar to thicken the mixture.

Chocolate Chip Meringue

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
Warning! These cookies expand to nearly twice their size when you bake them. I didn't know that and they came out huge! I was looking for a recipe where you wouldn't leave the meringues over night or for several hours but also wouldn't turn the cookies brown. This worked out great!

Tortellini Soup I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Fantastic soup and very open to experimentation. I used turkey sausage and wasn't worried about grease so I just dumped the onions and garlic in with it. No straining at all. I also didn't skin the sausage, just chopped it up finely. A lot less work that way. I used canned carrots, so I didn't do the first 30mins of simmering, just dumped all the ingredients into the pot and simmered for 45mins. I didn't have tortellini, so I used a bag of cheese ravioli. I cut up regular tomatoes instead of stewed. I only had 2Tbs of parsley left. If I made it again, I think I would still only use 2Tbs. I'm worried the parsley might be overpowering with 3. The whole soup turned out fantastic. The broth is delicious.

City Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2013
This recipe came out very tasty! But there are a few things I would change. For one, this recipe calls for far more flour than was needed. I think I had about a cup left over after I had breaded the pork. I also decided not to use the skewers since it would have been cumbersome during the browning process. I think I would use the skewers if I decided to bake them like another review described. Also the pork wasn't quite as tender as I remember having in my childhood. I think I would cook them longer in the pan or try the baking method. Overall, very good recipe. The flavor is exactly as I remember as a kid!

Exchange Gang Pasta with Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
This turned out really great. I didn't have shallots so I used half an onion, and I didn't have half-and-half, so I used milk. I also didn't use shrimp as a vegetarian option. I do feel like it's missing so kind of seasoning, like parsley or basil, something. Really great, though. Will make again.

Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2013
This turned out fantastic! I questioned some of the ingredients, but the flavors really come together. I used a whole onion, half of the suggested amount of cheese, and subbed potato flakes for the flower.

Kitchen Sink Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
This was great! I added a whole stick of butter and some extra parsley. Rather than dumping everything together, I started the pot with a little bit of broth, added the onions, and let that cook while I was chopping up other veggies. I went from fresh raw veggies to soft canned ones, adding to the pot as I chopped and increasing the amount of broth (just enough to cover everything and kept it boiling). So by the time I had added everything to the pot, the soup was practically done. I let it all cook for 10 mins to let the flavors combine. Wonderful.

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
I'm from the north and had never made collards before. I took this to a Southern family get-together and they were raved about. I think this had too much salt and pepper and not enough bacon. I used half a pound of bacon or about 8 slices. I would recommend using 1/2 tsp of salt and pepper or season to taste. I also followed the advice of other reviews and added a spoonful of brown sugar and some vinegar. Not sure the brown sugar did much but I recommend the vinegar.

Stuffed Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
I was looking for a recipe to use up the giant tomatoes we had and this worked really well. I changed the recipe and did chicken instead of sausage. I also added spinach and balsalmic vinegar. Used italian bread crumbs. Very good. I also just cut up the insides of the tomatoes instead of opening a can. Seemed like such a waste just to throw the insides away when they are perfectly usable. Just rinse them off so they are not too juicy.
