Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Everyone always loves these little balls of deliciousness! I mix the oreo/cream cheese mixture in a food processor, which makes it very easy. By the way, use 1/3 less fat cream cheese, no one can tell the difference & it makes these a teensy bit less sinful! I also chill or freeze before attempting the almond bark dip into the double boiler. However, I just am not very good at the dipping process. That is by far the most difficult part of this recipe. So, to diguise their ugliness I fling some melted chocolate around with a fork for an "accent". After that you can't even tell that I have no dipping skills.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Followed other reviewers suggestions and only baked chicken once. Also used fresh spinach sauted and evaporated milk. Good, but a little heavy for my tastes. My husband loved it and gave it a 5 although he mentioned that it probably wasn't the healthiest dish. If it hadn't bee for him loving it, I would have given it a 3.

Multigrain Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I think my husband said it best with "this tastes like I'm eating a bran muffin in pancake form." Definitely edible & healthy, but not delicious. I used real sugar instead of Splenda. If you are looking for a light & fluffy pancake that is healthy, keep on looking.

Blueberry Mini Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
My first attempt at making "To Die For Blueberry Muffins" into mini muffins failed. I needed blueberry mini muffins quick, so I made these exact to the recipe. I thought that they were too dry & dense for muffins, and not that great. On the positive side they did look just like they were supposed to, which was important because I was taking them for refreshments at a church function. Although I am not a fan, the kids and even some adults gobbled them up. So, I suppose they do work well for refreshment/pot luck type situations. Unless requested, I will not be making these again. "To Die for Blueberry Muffins" definitely deserve another attempt at becoming mini.

Penne with Pancetta and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
My family loved it! It was definitely a restaurant quality dish. I substituted evaporated milk for the cream and added some Parmesan cheese to the sauce during cooking. Fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, and shredded Parmesan garnished the top. We will be making this again.

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
Really great recipe! I will make again. As other reviewers said, it takes much more than 1 Tbsp of oil to soften up those tortillas. I used olive oil, but I highly suggest using an oil with a higher smoke point, such as canola or peanut. Used a mixture of Monterey-Jack, cheddar, & mozzarella cheeses and it was delicious. Served with Mexican rice & refried beans.

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
Great recipe! My husband enjoys making pancakes. He's made these twice and both times I've thought that they are the best he's ever made. We added a slosh of vanilla and ran out of baking powder. We probably only had half (or less) of what we were supposed to have and they still were great. This will be our family's pancake recipe from now on.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
I'm a baker, but this was my first try at a pie crust and it turned out excellent! My main concern was flakiness, and it was very flaky. I doubled the recipe & added a bit of sugar & vanilla extract. Only refrigerated the dough for 40 minutes. For filling I used the Three Berry Pie from this website. My husband & I agreed that the crust could use some more sugar to go with the sweet berry pie. I may experiment some, but I know that pie crust baking is a fine science. For novice pie crust bakers I found the following hints helpful: 1. Roll the dough from the middle once, then slightly move the dough clockwise and repeat, gradually rolling the dough into a large circle. 2. After the circle is formed, lightly dust flour onto the dough circle. Fold the dough circle into a semi circle, then fold once more (into a flat cone-like shape). Gently lift the dough into the pan with the "pointiest" angle in the center and unfold. These tips really helped me make my first pie-making experience a happy one.

Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
This was my first try at a pie, and it turned out pretty good. I'll try it again with a few adjustments. For a crust I made the Butter Flaky Pie Crust recipe from this website. I used mostly frozen mixed berries rather than fresh, therefore I followed the directions for frozen. I used a deep dish pie pan instead of a 9-inch. Next time I use the deep dish pan I will either double the filling or make 50% more. I think the berry filling could use some more sugar, so next time I will add more.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
Really good. Not a ton of flavor, but the appropriate amount for this classic dish. I made these for a funeral and used shredded hash browns in place of sliced potatoes. I also diced the onions rather than sliced and reduced the amount. I used evaporated milk (ounce for ounce) in place of fresh milk. Since hash browns were used rather than sliced potatoes cooking time was reduced to 1 hour.

Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
These were some of the best cookies I've ever made- and I've baked a few cookies! The only thing I changed was added some chopped dark chocolate candy bar because I did not have the entire 1 1/2 cups of m&ms. This added a nice contrast to the m&m's and I will continue to add the chocolate in the future.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
Love it! I just made this for a BBQ tomorrow and had to taste test. It is very tasty and very healthy! I am excited for my family to try. I kept everything the same and used Hodgson Mill's Whole Wheat Couscous with Milled Flaxseed & Soy.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
I loved these! I used about 1/4 cup brown sugar in place of 1/4 cup white sugar. Also used milk chocolate chips rather than semi-sweet. Also, as a warning, DO NOT make these if you are trying to watch what you eat. They are very addictive!

Loaded Tortillas

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
Great snack! I measured nothing, used black refried beans, Mexican-blend cheese and omitted bacon bits and green onions. I do wish that the tortillas would have gotten a bit crispier, but it was still good.

Black Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
These were pretty good. I used refried black beans instead of mashing up canned ones and eye-balled everything instead of measuring. I also added chopped tomato and sprinkled on a few broken up tortilla chips. My only complaint is that the tortillas stayed rather soft. Good snack/appetizer.

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
This is a quick recipe that I was able to put together quickly after finding out I was supposed to bring a salad to a taco-themed work luncheon. I didn't have any cilantro on hand, added a bit of garlic powder, used frozen corn, and used frozen black beans that I had previously prepared from dry. I was a little nervous about the dish having never tried it and the lack of cilantro. However, after marinating over night, the ladies at work LOVED it! They were particularly impressed with the dressing, ate it all, and requested the recipe.

Traditional Pita Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This recipe was ok, but not nearly as good or as much like the real thing as Peppy's Pita Bread found on this site. I added a dash of garlic and onion powders for flavor and it would have been very bland without it. I also found this recipe to be rather "doughy", which does not seem reminscent of pita bread to me.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I've made this several times now, and it has been delicious every time. It is a little sweet, so I don't think it would be great for sandwiches or garlic bread. However, it is perfect for slathering with butter and/or toasting. This is one of the easiest and quickest yeast breads I've ever baked.
