My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
Very Good! I've been trying to find a cookie that was moist, yet crisp, and these are the ones. Plus, they cool very quickly, which is nice because I only have two cooling racks. Not you typical chocolate chip cookie texture; they reminded me more of a short bread type of textrua. Yummy!

Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
Wonderful! I followed the recipe exacat, and just whipped in enough heavy cream until it was spreadable. I used peanutbutter cake, but next to the very rich and tasty icing, I couldn't taste the peanut butter in the cake, so it was more like yellow cake. Next time I will put this delectable icing on chocolate cake or brownies.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
This dip is really good. I browned up a lb of hamburger and put the taco seasoning whith the hamburger and put it right on top of the sour cream. I added a can of green chlies with the refried beans. I forgot the lettuce. That's exactaly how I did it, but there is a lot of room to change this recipe to taste. It's a great recipe.

Pork Tenderloin with Tomato and Pepper Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2005
Way too much black pepper! That's what made it too spicy. I thought mild chilie tomatoes would make it less spicy as some reviewers said it was too spicy, but it was the pepper that made it that way. So, I had to drain off the pork and tomtoes and added it to mashed potatoes to take away the "burn you lips" flavor, and the final dish was EXCELENT! Me, my husband and my 3 and 1 year old boys loved it. If you make this, season to tast with the pepper.

Mama D's Italian Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2005
We really liked this bread! I didn't have a spray bottle or what ever, so I just lightly brushed water on it with a pastry brush.

Baked Round Steak in Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2005
I did double the bbq sauce ingredients, and I slow cooked for a few hours. Round steak is a very tough meat, and does well with tomatoes (the ketchup) and the long, slow cooking. After I browned it I added all the other ingredients and simmered it on the stove for hours. It was very saucy and tender. I thickened up the sauce and served it over mashed potatoes. It was yummy. I think I may add some green pepper and onion when I brown the meat next time.

Buttermilk-Herb Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2005
I'm not sure what it took to make this bread, but, oh my, it was GOOD! I got home from work today to find this delicious bread on the counter, and I thought to myself: "this is the best bread I've ever had". So, I recommend it! -Husband Note from "wife": I had to add more flour, but it didn't seem to matter. This bread is GOOD! I used a .4 oz pack of ranch dressing because that is what I had on hand. Also, something is wrong with the cooking time. After 20 min at 350, I realized that the bread was still very raw and hiked up the temp to 375 for 20 more min. So, I recommend it!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
I've been making this cornbread for four years now. It is currently my favorite. I've not found a better one. My taste must have changed, because I like my cornbread on the sweet side and this is perfect. The texture is out of this world. Reminds me of the cornbread from kfc only (of course, it's homemade) better. OCT 2005: I followed the recipe and did not change a thing. Very moist and sweet. Although, I was looking for something a little less sweet. It's good, but not what I was looking for. I'm going to keep looking.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
I'm rating these a four only because of personal preference. If you are looking for a really thick and very very moist pancake, these would be for you. Personally, we like ours a little firmer and drier.

Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2005
Even my husband, who doesn't like red enchilada sauce, loved this! Three other "meat and potato" guys at work loved this! I used 1c corn muffin mix and 1c all purpose flour because my neighborhood "mom and pop" store didn't have corn flour. It worked beautifully because it thickened it immediately, I didn't have to simmer it for 30 min!! I debated weather or not to purchase the cumin, and I'm so glad I did. It really "made" the soup. It was bland before I added it. I didn't have the other spice, so I used 1 teaspon of the cumin. YUMMY!

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
This was yummy! 25 min and the bottom had a black crust, but it didn't effect the rest of the dish. When I make this again, I'll but it in the middle of the oven. I thought the bread crums were a little weird, so I'll leave them off next time. I doubled everything, and thought it was super tasty--5 guys at the office, and my 1 and 3 year old agree!

Cream of Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2005
Very fast and very simple and tasty! Taste alone, I'd give it a four, but all considered, it's a five star recipe. I used a 6 oz bag of fresh spinach and blended the spinach/water/bullion mixture in a blender before adding it to the milk. It's a veggie dish that my husband, 3 year-old and I all like. Definitely a keeper!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
This recipe is very good. I also recommend soaking the beans over night. The over night soak directions are right on the bag. Also, I had a hard time finding a ham hock, so I used instant ham stock. I couldn't even tell the difference. Thanks for the recipe! My family loves it.

Orange Blossom Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
Simple and yummy. My mom made it for Thanksgiving, and everyone liked it. She made a cornflake crust (I checked, and there is a recipe for such a crust on this web-site if anyone is interested) for it and it complimented it quit nicely.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
Quite yummy. I used left over rice that was in the fridge for a few days, so I had to cook and stir on med heat longer (25 or 30 min or so) before it got thick and creamy because my rice was very cold to begin with. It was a little too sweet for my taste, but all in all it's pretty good.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
YUM! I served this with sweet potatoes and topped the chops and potatoes with the apples and sauce, which I tripled as some other reviewers suggested. I used salted butter and didn't have any pecans, yet a very excellent dish. My favorite part is that it uses very common (assuming you have your spice rack well stocked) ingredients. Oh, I also added a little ginger and cloves to the sauce.

Kraut Bierocks

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
This was super good. It was time consuming but I imagine it will become faster as I do it more. I read a lot of reviews, there are a lot of helpful tips in them, I'm not going to retype them all here, but I suggest you read some of the other reviews before you make this recipe. I used 4 cups cabbage and carrot shredded together, 1 cup green pepper and 1 cup sauerkraut, we like a lot of veggies. In fact, next time I may use just 1# of sausage and more veggies. But that's just the veggie lover in me.
