Turkey Breast with Gravy

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
We all thought this was moist and delicious. I added about a cup of chicken broth to the bottom of the pan, covered the breast in foil for the first hour, and basted the breast (and rotated the pan) every thirty minutes, adding chicken broth as needed. The chicken broth enabled me to skip the water and bouillon at the end, as I wound up with plenty of liquid and drippings for the gravy. A savory (and tasty!) combination of spices, and it really did make delicious gravy. I will definitely be making this again.

Apple Streusel Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
We didn't particularly care for this recipe--as another review stated, it was pretty bland, and the condensed milk layer made the entire dish look curdled. Is definitely not what I think of when I think of a cobbler dish. Might be improved if you use fresh apples and your favorite apple pie filling recipe.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
I just acquired a Kitchen Aid for Christmas, with high hopes of improving my (novice) baking skills, and was excited about trying this recipe. And oh my word, it was delicious and oh so easy! I followed the advice of a reviewer and let the butter and sugar mix for ten full minutes, until it whipped and turned almost white (like dense whipped cream), and I'm glad I did, as the end result was a light, moist, and very tasty cake indeed. I did modify it and used all-purpose flour, replacing two tablespoons of the flour with corn starch (I had read about this substitution online), as I didn't have cake flour, and it still had a wonderful texture (also, I baked for 35 minutes in a 13x9x2 inch pan, as I only have one round cake pan). I have very limited baking experience, if I can make such a wonderful cake, then anyone can!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Made these for Christmas dessert and it was oh so delicious. I did as others suggested and cut down the sugar to 2 cups and the milk down to 1-1/2 cups, and it worked perfectly. I used an Oreo crust for one pie, and a chocolate graham cracker crust for the other--the Oreo crust was by far the best. I made both pies the night before, which made the consistency perfect.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Made these for New Years Eve. Was good, except I used light mayo to combat the calories a little--which impacted the flavor slightly. Easy to make though, with ingredients most people have on hand

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
Makes a very moist and tasty meatloaf. I used 2 lbs ground chuck and increased the ingredients accordingly; didn't have any ginger (which I'm sure is a tasty addition), so I used 2tsps seasoned salt in place of the table salt and ginger. I didn't have any saltines so I used bread crumbs instead, and instead of a bread pan I shaped the meat mixture into a loaf, placed it into an 11x7 baking dish and poured the ketchup mixture over the top. It was good, got good reviews from the family, and was the moistest meatloaf I've ever made. Will make again.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
These were really, really good. Make sure to mix by hand and do NOT overmix--that helped them stay chewy and more dense, like an actual brownie. I folded in 1 cup of chocolate chips (who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate?) and loved the combo. My only issue was that it took longer to bake then instructed--30-35 minute time frame just wasn't long enough to ensure they were completely baked in the middle. Will for sure make again.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
Baked up just this morning, was a big hit. I used a 9x9 pan, next time I'll compensate with a little extra bread and let the bread air dry a little while first. I forgot to add the cinnamon sugar mix, but added during the last ten minutes of cook time and it turned out tasty anyway. Will definitely make again.

Oregano Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
This was pretty good. Not necessarily fabulous, but good. Everyone enjoyed eating it :)

Pecan Pie IV

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
My first time making a pecan pie, my husband loved it. Very easy to make, and I thought the 9-inch pie shell was the perfect size.

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I made no changes to the recipe and it turned out great. Moist, tender, delicious, and so easy to make. I found the 9x13 pan to be perfect, and it was barely any trouble to spread the batter in the pan, even if it was a little thick. Pieces came out just right, not too thick, not to thin. Will be making again for sure!

Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I, like many, was skeptical, but the great reviews enticed me to try it out. I halved the recipe and Wow! So good! It was a BIG hit at our Christmas dinner table. I'll definitely be making these again.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Truly, a delicious and easy pie. I added a little cinnamon, but I'm sure it would be just as good on its own. I've made it every thanksgiving for the past three years, and I've gotten nothing but rave reviews. Hooray for Grandma Ople!

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
My first venture into cooking with tofu was a smashing success. Per the advice given in other reviews, I sliced the tofu, placed on baking sheet, and froze until firm. Removed from freezer and allowed to thaw, then pressed out the liquid. The texture in the finished dish really was (almost) like using veal. I was worried about the sauce being bland, but it turned out perfect. Really tasty!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
This was absolutely delicious and so easy. I cooked on high for four hours until the chicken was "shred tender." Removed and shredded chicken, added chicken back into the crock pot with the barbecue sauce, and heated for another 30 minutes. Once I shredded the chicken, the sauce wasn't a bit watery. Everyone raved about it, and it was even better reheated the next day. A keeper :)

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
A deliciously simple recipe for basic (and tasty!) Scalloped Potatoes. I didn't have to add or change a thing, other than it took forever for the milk to boil (I poured it straight from the fridge) so I wound up cranking the heat to 475 until it boiled, than lowered to 425 and started checking for doneness after 30 minutes. These were a BIG hit at Christmas dinner, my husband said they tasted just like his grandmother's. I'll be making these again.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
Finally got a chance to try this today. I wish I had read more closely some of the other reviews because (as others have stated), as written, the soy sauce and saltiness is completely overpowering. I ended up doubling the sauce ingredients, leaving the soy sauce the same, and it made the recipe go up from two stars to four stars (although, in my opinion, it made a little TOO much sauce-to-noodle ratio, so if I make it again, I would make as written except cut the soy down to two tablespoons). Also, I tried the dish using stir fry noodles, but I think the larger noodles the recipe calls for (either spaghetti or fettucine) would have been better--I also added a bag of frozen broccoli stir fry vegetables (sauteed) and thought it was a delicious addition. Oh! Annnnd I ended up using dried ginger, as it was all I had; while fresh is obviously much better, I thought it tasted fine with the dried.

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2013
Just made this dish this evening, and we really liked it. I followed the recipe exactly, except I made a mixture of a teaspoon of each of the spices, then sprinkled that liberally all over the breasts, along with the minced garlic. A "pinch" would not have been nearly enough! I seared the breasts, then covered the skillet and cooked on medium temp for fifteen minutes. I wouldn't recommend skipping this step, it added a nice flavor and texture, and they weren't dry at all. Then salsa on top, liberal sprinkling of cheese, then in the oven for fifteen minutes. I see this as a quick and easy meal, with the ability to add things here and there (change up the salsa, add jalapenos, or whatever). Will be making again :)

Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: May 23, 2013
An old favorite, although I had lost my recipe so I followed the one here. My only quibble: melt the entire bag of chips--the butterscotch and chocolate--instead of just one cup each. We melted the amount stated in the recipe, and it wouldn't cover the entire pan--we ended up melting the rest of the bag(s) and then there was enough. Next time I might even up the peanut butter by a half cup or so. Otherwise, delicious, and EASY--my son, who is hopeless in the kitchen, made these for a class party and they turned out perfect.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
Delicious! Just as described: Big, fat, and chewy. I followed the recipe exactly, except I took the advice of another reviewer and chilled the dough for 30 minutes, then let sit at room temperature for 15. These ARE thick cookies, and I had to bake mine for 19 minutes, but the thickness and increase in baking time may have been caused by the chilling of the dough, although I'm not sure that was the case. Make sure to let your eggs come to room temperature, and don't shy away from using real butter (also, I *very* lightly greased my cookie sheet, instead of leaving it un-greased like some other reviewers did, and it didn't seem to impact the cookies whatsoever). I am a novice baker, these are the absolute best cookies I've made, hands down.
