Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
These pancakes are amazing. Really nice, rich flavor unlike some other batter recipes that end up tasteless. I served mine with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and whipped cream. Mmmmmm.... Even my husband who is from Spain and not a big pancake person raved. These served my family of 2 adults and 2 young ones perfectly, but no leftovers, so double the recipe if you have more adults or teenagers!

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
These are good muffins. But as I've made these twice I understand the bad reviews. Without a few tweaks these are plain and don't have much depth or taste, and are not sweet at all. Don't be afraid to add extra sugar, milk and vanilla. I increased milk to 1 full cup, some of which I used heavy cream. I also added a spoonful of vanilla, used a full cup of sugar, half of which was brown, and used a full cup of chocolate chips. I sprinkled turbinado sugar on top of the muffins before baking and they came out very nice. I am not a big fan of very sweet things and even with my changes I don't think they were too sweet, but just perfect. I served mine hot with a small pat of butter inside. YUM! And btw, it doesn't really affect taste but I think the mini chocolate chips would work better in this recipe than the full sized I used.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
I dont understand all the good reviews. These were ok, no flavor to speak of. And i followed recipe exactly. Very bland. I prefer a good pre-made mix to this. If you make these I recommend using extra sugar and vanilla. I sauteed chopped apples in butter cinnamon and sugar and used that as a topping, along with butter and a little maple syrup, THEN, they had flavor.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
These were fantastic!!! I just made these this morning and everyone in my house is devouring them! I followed the recipe exactly (only adding a little cinnamon bc I love the smell when baking) and we did not find these too sweet. But I can see how reducing the sugar a little would not hurt the taste, especially if you wanted a heartier, healthy breakfast muffin. Next time I am going to add more nuts and not chop them so fine, as its nice to get that crunch inside.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
Amazing! Made this today and it is wonderful. It seems everyone tweaks this a tad, sometimes out of necessity, here's my tweaks: (most of this is all going on at the same time): I had two frozen pie crusts that I set out to thaw. Instead of boiling (I think it makes the meat too bland) I sauteed two big boneless skinless chicken breasts in a little olive oil over LOW heat, I salted them and put some garlic powder and black pepper on them too. Covered them as they were cooking so the meat would be really soft, almost boiled. Let the meat rest for 10 min before I shredded it. Had a bag of frozen peas/carrots/green beans/corn that I lightly boiled in just enough broth to cover them, for 5 minutes. Sauteed chopped onion and 2 finely minced garlic cloves in a little olive oil for 20 min- LOW-med heat, don't let that garlic burn! Baked one of my thawed out crusts (the one to be used as the bottom) for 5 minutes. And the sauce.. pretty much followed the recipe's directions to a T. Note: some people stated the mixture to be runny... let your sauce cook on low heat for awhile, it can take half an hour to thicken, just keep in on low heat and keep stirring. It WILL thicken. I cooked mine to the consistency of gravy. Taste your sauce, it should taste as salty as you want your pie to taste, if not, add more salt! Note: when u put on the top crust and seal it together, brush on a little melted butter, it makes it brown nicely. Outstanding w/ a green salad and sweet iced tea!

Pumpkin-Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
These were soooo yummy! Very, very moist and flavorful- my family devoured them all within a few hours! Like most others, I did make a few very small changes- I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, cut down on the oil by using only 1/4 cup- you DO NOT need a full half cup of oil, and only used 1 1/2 c. sugar. I think the full 2 cups of sugar called for would be too much- mine were plenty sweet, moist and delicious! Also, since the mixture does indeed look dry when you mix it and I already had half a can of pumpkin left over, I stirred in and extra 1/2 c. of pumpkin and a generous splash of milk. I will be making these again soon! P.S. I did not even bother with making the topping- they were great by themselves. Maybe next time.

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
I found this lasagna really yummy and satisfying. I have very high standards and cook almost everything from scratch, so this was a fun one to play with. Like the other reviewers, I used a ricotta/cottage chz combo with an egg, and I also layered in fresh lightly sauteed portobella mushrooms and spinach on top of the ground beef. I also found that an extra can of spaghetti sauce is needed. You can never make lasagna too juicy or saucy in my opinion. You could use a little extra of everything to make the layers really full. I like to make an extra small dish to give to a family member and I like to grate fresh parmesean on it after it's served instead of baking the parm. Tonight I'm going to mix in Italian sausage w/ the beef. Great recipe!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2005
These are good, hearty muffins. I went really healthy and substituted whole wheat flour, used softened real butter and virgin coconut oil for the oil, and date sugar instead of white sugar. I also added a swirl of honey and a few spoonfuls of pure molasses and some raisins. I only had cinnamon so thats the only spice I used, and I left off the struesel topping. Mine are slightly sweet and very moist and smell great. I think made this way they are great for a healthy snack on the go, and great for kids. Good recipe to play with.... I may make the regular version for T-day breakfast!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
Ok I made these last night and left a review, but I had to leave another review. These cookies are great! I can't stop eating them! My cookies turned out very soft and chewy with a great PB taste. I have come to realize that most all cookies and cakes taste way better the 2nd day. I also left the previous review. Here's what I will do next time and recommend: add an extra teaspoon of baking soda ( I think it will help keep the cookies thicker), use chunky PB and possibly add some chopped peanuts, add an extra cup of oats for texture, and add a teaspoon of vanilla. But otherwise they are great the way they are. Will definitely make again!!! Oh yeah, keep cookies in a ziploc bag to keep them soft/chewy.

Old Fashioned Paradise Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
This was my 1st time making Thanksgiving dinner, and my husband and I loved this pie! I went upscale on every dish, and this version of pumkin pie will not disappoint! It was fabulous. Very rich, but fabulous! I have never been crazy about pumpkin pie, but I knew my husband loved it so I thought that the cheesecake layer would make this something we both would like. Boy am I glad I tried it. My husband devoured it and swore it was the best pumpkin pie he had ever eaten. I served it a few hours after dinner with coffee and Haagen Daaz vanilla ice cream. Yummy! Bravo Holly!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
I have to say, this stuffing was incredible!And I have very high standards for food. I made this for Thanksgiving 04 and it was a big hit! Was my 1st time making stuffing, and I am SOOOO glad I didn't use some mushy Stovetop recipe. I left out the liver and parsley, and doubled the dried cranberries, also I added about 1/2 cup extra stock since I baked it in a dish instead of stuffing in into a turkey. And I used canned chicken broth instead of turkey stock. After I browned the sausage with the onion I pureed them in a food processor to make a smoother texture. Will be making this for Christmas!

Apricot Ginger Game Hens

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
These were terrific, nice and juicy! I bought them frozen and when they thawed I just cut them in half myself with a big chef's knife, no problem. I basted them with the marinade they were cooking in,about every 15 minutes while they were baking. I will definitely make these again!

The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
This turned out fantastic! I'm a "most of the time" vegan, and I made this while staying with my very un-vegan family. Everyone loved it, and loved the little bit of kick the spices provided. No one even missed the meat! I actually left out the veggie burger crumbles and used canned crushed tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes. I served it with vegan sour cream and corn chips. Yummy!I will make this again.
