Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
Best homemade pancakes I ever made. Sooo filling, though! The only change I will make next time is to add 1 more tsp of sugar and 1 tsp of lemon juice. But great without those changes

Slow Cooker Oats

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2014
My husband doesn't like homemade oatmeal, and he really liked this! I made a few adjustments as follows: 2 cups almond milk and 1 cup water, 1 cup steel oats, 1 chopped up gala apple (all I had), only 1 TBSP of cinnamon (PLENTY), doubled the brown sugar to 4 TBSP, 1 tsp vanilla, and the 2 TBSP of butter. I set it to warm before I went to bed around midnight, and it was creamy and delicious around 8:00 this morning. I added a few pecans, dried cranberries, and a packet of Sugar in the Raw to my bowl. The Sugar in the Raw is a coarser, natural sugar that is light golden brown in color, but I think is not brown sugar. It really makes a difference in a good way!!

Once you try these, you will never try another stuffed pepper recipe. Meaty, saucy, and cheesy!

Blueberry Crisp II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
Delicious. The only changes I made were to sprinkle some fresh lemon juice over the blueberries, add a tsp of vanilla, and double the topping. I mixed some of the topping through the blueberries, and spread the rest over the top. Delish!!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
Probably about a 4.5, a tad sweet even with changes. I used 1/4 c. Splenda, but could probably cut that back to about 1/3 cup. Because it was so sweet initially, I added about 1/4 cup more mayo. I probably wouldn't have added it if I had cut back on the Splenda. Added 2 tsp minced onions (would have used fresh if I had any) and added an additional 1/4 tsp vinegar. Also liberally sprinkled on some ground black pepper. My husband doesn't like coleslaw, but had seconds of this one. He thought it was really good. I didn't have poppy seeds, so didn't use any.

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
Best pot roast I ever had. I used a chuck roast. Only change I made was to use an equal ratio of beef broth and red wine in place of the chicken stock. I used the fresh herbs, and I feel it made a difference.

If you love broccoli cheese soup, but hate the calories, this soup is for you! Tastes just as decadent, with way less calories.

No Fail Pound Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
It was very good, and pretty easy to make. I used 1 TBSP vanilla and 1/4 tsp almond extract instead of the lemon. I baked for 40 minutes, and it was perfect. It was good, but it was maybe a tad too sweet? It was also not as "buttery" as I like. Still a very good recipe.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
This was probably the best stew I ever had. The only change I made was to use an additional 1/4 cup wine instead of water when mixing with the flour for gravy at the end. I also used regular carrots (about 6) cut diagonally instead of baby carrots, and I used only 1 small onion. I felt 3 onions and onion soup mix would have been overkill.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
This was amazing. My kids loved it. The only thing I did differently was cut the chicken breast into chunks beforehand, and sautee with the onion, and a clove of garlic. I also sprinkled a TBSP of cumin on the chicken while sauteeing. I then layered the chicken/onion mixture with the rest of the ingredients. I used 2 boil in a bag rice packets, which shave off another 10 minutes.

Wonderful Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
My family went crazy over these. They were really good, but to be honest, I didn't see the difference between these and other good waffles I've made. But, 5 stars since they were very good and my family thinks they are the best ever! I didn't do anything different, except add a tsp of vanilla, and cinnamon to a batch. Thanks for a great recipe!

Bow-Tie Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Delicious basic recipe. Here's how I did it: I cooked the broccoli with the pasta (my family likes their broccoli soft- if yours doesn't, don't add broccoli until the last 5 minutes of cooking time). 2 c. Hellman's Light olive oil mayo, no onions (didn't have any) and added 1/4 tsp of onion powder & 1/4 tsp garlic salt to the mayo mix. I sauteed some chicken strips in a little olive oil, then added a splash of white wine. I then added the pasta/broccoli to the large bowl I had made the mayo mixture in, and added in the chicken. I had tasted the mayo mix before I added the pasta, & it was a little too bland. This was really good, but I felt like it was missing something, I can't put my finger on it. Still, very good and will make it again.

Spooky Calzone Snake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Came out really cute! I cheated and used Pilsbury pizza dough, and it was so easy! It comes out in a long layer, so you just stretch it and then stretch it width-wise a little, put the filling in the middle, and seal it up. I used egg whites with green food coloring to make a green snake. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was it was just a tad dry. It was probably me. I may have cooked it a little too long.

Cupcake Graveyard

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I didn't taste them, but my kids and their friends couldn't get enough of them, and they looked adorable! I poked gummy worms through them, and used Milano cookies asthe "tombstones". I mixed oreo cookie crumbs with Betty Crocker vanilla frosting, and used Betty Crocker chocolate fudge cake mix.

Tater Tot Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Very good. I added 1 lb. chopped meat, 3/4 tsp. garlic salt & half a diced onion to the bottom of the pan without greasing. I think next time I will use only 1/2 the sour cream & add a little milk to thin out the sauce. I will also use more cheese, maybe another cup to the top before adding the French-fried onions. Very good basic recipe that I will make again.*****edited to 5 stars from 4 with these changes****I put the browned chopped meat w/1/4 small sauteed onion & garlic salt on top of tater tots in greased casserole dish. I used only 1/2 the sour cream (8 oz) and added an additional cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese to the top before adding French fried onions and baking. With these small changes, this was definitely a 5 star recipe. My family devoured this!
