Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2004
This was the perfect cookie recipe for my tastes, I love cookies that are soft and chewy, not crumbly or crisp. I ALMOST followed the recipe exactly but because of previous reviews I added an extra 1/2 cup peanut butter and only about 2 1/4 cups flour instead of 2 1/2. I added chocolate chips and these cookies disappeared so fast! I will make them again and again!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2005
I was amazed how perfectly these cookies came out! They were incredibally soft and chewey with just the tiniest bit of crisp around the edges. They never once turned out hard or crunchy so if you like crunchy cookies this isn't the recipe for you. I made one regular batch with chocolate chips and one batch with chocolate chips and heath bar toffee bits. Both were delicious and got rave reviews from my friends!!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
This meatloaf was sublime! I've gone through MANY meatloaf recipes trying to find the one with the right flavor and this was perfect. I'm usually a person that drowns their meatloaf in gravy because often it's bland, but I didn't use ANY gravy when I ate this, that's saying a lot! I took the advice of many of the previous posters cutting the onion soup packet down to 1/2 and using 1 tablespoon of steak sauce and one tablespoon of bbq sauce instead of 2 tablespoons of steak sauce. I also used a "meatloaf meat" (beef, pork and veal ground up together) from the supermarket instead of plain beef. Then spread some ketchup ontop before putting it in the oven. My boyfriend said he'd never had meatloaf that was so soft and moist. The texture was aboslutely wonderful, no problems with it falling apart. I can't wait to make this meatloaf again!!!

Game Day Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
These burgers are a great alternative to the same old, same old burgers I always have. I bought a bag of pre-shredded hash brown potatos and fried them up before stuffing the burgers so I wouldn't have to worry about the potato cooking all the way through, it also added that yummy fried potato flavor! I've made these with lots of different variations for fillings but my favorite is potato, cheddar and crumbled bacon. My boyfriend's favorite is the original potato/mushroom/swiss. Any fillings work well for this burger so get creative! I gave my sister this recipe and she makes hers with cream cheese, avacado and sundried tomatoes, yum!

Jay's Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: May 25, 2005
This recipe is sooooo delicious! I made chicken kabobs with it and served it with "spicey mango salsa" from this site. It has a very authentic fresh taste and I got compliments from every single person who tried it. The marinade/sauce looks kind of greenish brown so it's not necessarily pretty but as soon as you taste it you won't care WHAT it looks like!

Southern Living Magazine's Chicken-Fried Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
This was my first attempt at country fried steak and I was so pleased! The breading was very heavy but it stayed nice and crunchy and I didn't have any trouble with it crumbling off the meat. The taste was delicious, although I wish I could have tasted the meat a little stronger through the breading. I paired this with Garlic mashed potatos and covered the steaks in a creamy sauce made with sharp cheddar and fresh sage, the sauce together with the steak was to die for!

Cranberry Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2005
I left out the pie crust and put this into a square baking dish to make into a cranberry apple crisp instead of a pie and it was fantastic! The topping is really to die for. I liked the tartness of the cranberries, they will certainly make you pucker a little, if you like more sweet than tart add more sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup. I brought this to a family gathering and everyone loved it, lots of people commented that it tasted like a rhubarb recipe.

Smothered Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
I was a little disappointed in this recipe. It didn't have the flavor I would have expected, the bacon flavor was just about non existent and the onion was just so-so. I was looking for a jazzed up recipe for green beans but this was rather blah and uninteresting

Spicy Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
This has a really wonderful bright and fresh taste. The only change I made was to use Nectarines instead of peaches simply because of personal preferance. I paired this with "Jay's Jerk Chicken" from this site for a family get together and it was gobbled up quickly! My mom even asked me for the recipe, usually it's the other way around!

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
The juiciest pork chops I've ever had I think! The sauce is a great mix of sweet and tangy, will definitely make these again!

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
I gave this only 4 because the recipe wasn't perfect until it was tweaked. After the adjustments though it definitely gets 5 stars! I increased the bananas to 4 and mashed them coarsely so I would have chunks of banana in the bread, replaced all the white sugar with dark brown sugar, added cinnamon to taste and added 4 heaping tablespoons of chunky natural peanut butter and cooked in a mini loaf pan (I ended up with 8 mini loafs). It was dense and moist with perfectly cracked and brown crust! Fantastic right out of the oven with butter on top or the next day I popped it into the microwave to reheat. YUM!!

Holiday Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
The flavors in this cranberry sauce are truly exceptional however I only gave the recipe 4 stars because of the 2 cups of sugar! I only put in 1 cup of sugar and it was the perfect sweetness for me (and I consider my tastes in cranberry sauce to be pretty average). I recommend starting with just half of the sugar and then adding more to taste if you want.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
This is a fantastic dip but I alter the recipe a little bit to fit my taste, that's why I've given it 4 stars. I don't like canned chunk chicken so I cook my own and shred it, I prefer the shredded consistency. Also I use blue cheese dressing instead of ranch. It's really fantastic!!!

Spinach and Blue Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
This soup was phenomenal! Tasted like something you would get in a high end restaurant. Very rich and creamy. I followed the recipe almost exactly but instead of thickening with flour I thickened with 1 package of cream cheese (because I'm eating low carb). The blue cheese flavor was mild enough for someone like me that enjoys blue cheese now and then but doesn't totally love it.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This was a really phenomenal dip! The reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is that I had to add waaaay more jalepenos than called for in the original recipe. I like things moderately spicy so I started out with the recommended amount of peppers but I couldn't even taste them! I kept adding and tasting and by the time I was done I had used 4 ounces of chiles and 12 ounces of jalepenos! Not one person at the party I brought this to thought it was too hot. Do not try this dip cold, all you will taste is mayonaise, but once heated (I baked mine) you just get the lovely cream cheese and parmesan flavor. The consistency was really nice too, not too runny but not too thick. Everyone LOVED it!

Company Couscous

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
This really was good cous cous! Everyone commented on how light and fresh it tasted and that it was a nice change from same old potatoes or rice pilaf. The balsamic and parmesan really made this dish.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
This is a very good marinade but I gave it only 4 stars because it simply wasn't what I was looking for and is not necessarily my preference. Having said that though the flavors were wonderful together and everyone else really like it. It taste's like an Asian marinade of some sort (Asian BBQ?). The salty soy sauce and sweet balsamic are very pronounced. I marinated for 24 hours and the steak came out fabulously juicy and tender! However, If I try this again I'll marinade for a little less time because I couldn't really taste the actual beef. I used sirloin steaks.

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
Fantastic! This had so much flavor. I added extra lemon juice and fresh basil, everyone loved it. It came out a bit too salty for my tastes but that is not the recipe's fault since it says "salt to taste," I simply put too much in!

Pasta with Kielbasa and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
This is a nice mild flavored dish that I really enjoyed. I cut out some of the pasta since so many people said there was too much and I also added in some shredded cheddar cheese. It's certainly not a "pretty" looking dish but the flavors really went well together, I think the white wine is what really made the sauce. I tried some hot right off the stove and the rest went to a pot luck where it was served room temperature a few hours later (the sauce sort of disappeared once cooled). It was tasty both ways but I think it was better served fresh and hot.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
The presentation is what really makes this pie, the top bubbles, caramelizes and comes out a really crunchy, pretty brown. I added cinnamon and nutmeg and as far as the flavor it was a basic apple pie, but that's a good thing!
