Dreamy Nighttime Drink

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
I made this for my ten-year-old daughter. She found the recipe and wanted to try it.. She has a cinnamon allergy, so we omitted it and added a pinch of nutmeg instead. Oh, and we doubled the honey. We both thought it was wonderful and soothing! Thanks for sharing!

Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
I did a 1/3-size batch (with four eggs), and I changed it a wee bit: I mixed a couple splashes of milk in with the eggs along with salt, pepper, and some green onion. I used about 2/3 of a pound of diced-and-cooked bacon, an extra slice of bread, and a bit more cheese. I cooked it in a rectangular 2-quart baking dish. It held together really nicely and the boyfriend was able to munch it on the way to work with no problems. Thanks for sharing!

Daddy's Popcorn

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
Those few people complaining about this not being a new recipe annoy me. It may not be new to YOU, but to some people it IS new. As a child, my mom always just popped the popcorn in a pot with oil. No butter or margarine. She topped it with butter after popping. While that popcorn was always tasty, this is absolutely delicious. I use even amounts of oil and margarine, and I add a little salt while the two are melting together just before adding the popcorn. It is quite amazing, and all my daughter's friends LOVE "my" popcorn. Thanks for sharing, although I did get the recipe elsewhere a few years back!!

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
Very good. I've made it several times in the past several years, but I'd forgotten about this recipe until today, when my daughter and I got into the hummus I'd bought for my boyfriend. We wanted more, and this is so cheap! I used 1 can of garbanzos, 1 clove of garlic, 1 tsp cumin, about 1/4 tsp salt, a few good squeezes of lemon juice, and about half of the bean water. I omitted the oil because we both thought it was awesome without! Thank you for sharing, Donalyn!

Corn On The Cob (Easy Cleaning and Shucking)

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
The very best corn recipe ever. Not even kidding! I thought there was no way it could work as well as all the reviews state.. Well, believe it! No silk and no loss of flavour due to the boiling process. Excellent! Thanks for sharing!

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
My eight-year-old daughter made this by herself. Her review: "I love this recipe. I made it a little bit puckery and a little bit sweet." She loved it and I did too. :) Thanks for sharing!

Mom's Great Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Tasty! My daughter usually scarfs green beans cooked in soy sauce, but I wanted to change things up a bit to go with our spaghetti... And this was great! I omitted the butter and used a little garlic powder and pepper in place of garlic pepper... Oh, and I added about 1/2 tsp of brown sugar (to entice her, of course!) and it was a hit. The leftovers are very ugly but extra delicious! Thank you so much for sharing!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
An excellent and easy stew recipe. I make minimal changes (I like parsnips, so I add three chopped in place of celery, and I add a little more broth because I like more gravy), but that's about it. This is one of those easy, homey, stick-to-your-ribs recipes. Some of the reviews tick me off: Yes, it's a "regular" stew recipe because it is, after all, STEW. And all the changes that other reviewers make? Don't say "I made this recipe, but I changed EVERYTHING about it." You aren't doing this recipe justice.. heck, you aren't doing THIS recipe at all. I'm as guilty of changing recipes to suit my tastes and pantry as much as anyone, but at least tell us that you've made the original recipe as written before doing your million-and-one changes! Thanks for sharing this tasty-as-written recipe, Buchko!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
So... amazing... I followed the recipe but for one change: I used margarine instead of butter. And these turned out absolutely delicious. Some reviewers suggest separating the eggs, beating the whites and folding in gently at the end. While I'm sure this makes for an even fluffier waffle, I don't feel it's necessary. These were fluffy, light, crispy. The batter seemed a little runny at the end, so I added a couple tablespoons of cornstarch (as recommended by my waffle iron manual to make waffles more crispy), but as the batter sat between waffles, it got a lot thicker. It was unnecessary, but my waffles WERE nice and crispy! Thanks for sharing, Megan!

Baked Ham Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Delicious! I ran out of foil, so I baked them in a covered casserole dish. I used leftover Christmas ham. I used cheddar and added a spicy pickle to each sandwich, and a good time was had by all. Thanks for sharing!

Cheesy Pizza Fondue

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
Some of the reviews surprised me. Yes, it tastes like spaghetti sauce because it IS spaghetti sauce. But is it a fun way to eat "pizza"? Yes. I added chopped up pepperoni, next time I'll probably add some green and/or black olives and maybe some mushrooms. My local Fred Meyer sells cut-up bread for fondue or appetizers, and it was just about perfect. Oh, and while the cheese didn't melt 100%, it was gooey and sort of stringy, not unlike pizza. Thanks for sharing!

All Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
I used about half the sugar called for and I cut back a bit on the cinnamon (allergies in the house)... I also used my stick blender to blend up the lumps near the end of the cook time, then let it cook for another 30 mins or so on high. Quite yummy! Thanks for sharing!

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
I've been making biscuits since I was a pre-teen. I love them, LOVE them! I wanted to try a different recipe, and this one called my name since it had an egg in it, a change from the recipes I've used. These are AMAZING. Flaky, tasty, and you can peel the layers of biscuit off each one.. Kind of like refrigerated biscuits but without that nasty pre-made flavour. Oh, and I used margarine in place of shortening, so the biscuit tops sort of slid off the bottoms while baking.. but they were excellent anyways! This will be my go-to for biscuits! Thanks for sharing!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
I agree that it's tasty, but I also agree that it needs something. I changed the servings to 6 for my 11 eggs, and I ended up using more like 2 TBS of mustard because it was bland. I also used celery salt and white onion as that is how I remember egg salad from my childhood. I added a LOT of celery salt and pepper, and then a little vinegar since it was still lacking. Maybe it was my mayo, though. Next time, I'll have to use Miracle Whip (another childhood flavour!) Definitely a good base, but a little tweaking is in order! Thanks for sharing!

Pickled Jalapenos and Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
We had some jalapenos that were starting to get a little old, so I found and tried this recipe. It is fantastic. I had only had the pickled peppers in restaurants, and these are so much better. To the vinegar and sugar, I added several shakes of ground pepper, around 1/4 tsp of Italian seasoning, and a few shakes of salt. I boiled my carrots for around five minutes before adding the peppers (quartered lengthwise into strips, with the membrane and seeds removed). I also added three cloves of garlic, quartered, and maybe 1/4 cup of sliced white onion. I only boiled everything together for a couple minutes, and then I let it all cool in the pot. When at room temperature, into a glass jar! So good, next time I want to add some cauliflower! Don't be scared of making pickled anything. The reward is worth the effort! Thanks for sharing, JC!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Some of the best chili I've ever made. I did a half batch, so I used one pound of ground beef. I also used a can of diced fire-roasted tomatoes and a can of mild Rotel in place of the tomato juice. I used 8 ounces of tomato sauce, a can of kidney beans, a can of chili beans, 3/4 cup of onion, no bell pepper, and the seasoning approximately as advised. I browned the ground beef on the stove and then threw everything into the crock pot. It went for around eight hours on low and it was amazing. Not too liquidy, and the spice level was perfect for me (I'm a wuss). Thanks for sharing, George!

Kraut Bierocks

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
These are amazing. For the dough, I use the bread machine, and I only use 1-1/2 cups of water. I ended up using all the flour called for. And I was out of powdered milk, so I skipped it! I used 1-1/3 pounds of ground beef instead of beef and sausage, one can of sauerkraut instead of cabbage, and all cheddar cheese (no American). Really tasty fresh, and still quite delicious at room temperature or cold. Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I only used maybe 3 TBS of milk and I ran out of icing sugar after only using around 2-1/2 cups... But it turned out delicious! I didn't have that too-sweet taste going on that some people have mentioned. I didn't melt the margarine, and I beat the icing for a bit, then let it sit for 30+ minutes and beat it again. I used it on Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies and it was absolutely delicious. Thanks for sharing, Tia!

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I did a double batch and used 1/2 cup margarine, around 1 cup of peanut butter (I never measure peanut butter, so it was probably more like 1-1/4 cups), 1-1/4 cup sugar, 1 cup of brown sugar, 3 eggs, a big splash of vanilla, 1-3/4 cups of flour, 2 tsp baking powder, and 1/2 tsp salt. I baked it in a 9x13 pan for around 30 minutes, but the oven was closer to 325. They turned out really well! Not so much a brownie as a chewy bar. I iced it with Chocolate Frosting I from this site, delicious! Thanks for sharing, Jo!

Hobo Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Excellent. I grew up on this, but we didn't use carrots and we usually served it with sour cream and "bacon" bits. Extra-yummy with a little celery salt, too! Thanks for the great reminder. :)
