Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
WOW WOW WOW! However, I did make a few changes--butter instead of shortening, two teaspoons of vanilla (added right with the eggs), and an extra cup of oatmeal. Absolutely chewy and delicious! I only cooked them for 10 min at 350, but left them on the trey for 5 min to firm up well. Thanks, even better then the oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe from Nestle!

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2006
Very Very Good. This is by far MUCH better than canned tomato soup. I’ve been making it for two summers now. I peel the tomatoes first because I do not have a food meal. I used to seed them too, but I found that a lot of the seeds come out while chopping them and any seeds left usually disappear in the blender. I put the entire pot of soup in my blender (be careful! Once I burnt myself) and blend it to make it very smooth. I take out the onion first. I use one whole onion cut in half. It adds a good flavor to the soup. Some of us put a little milk in our individual servings. We all enjoy the soup very much! (TIP: Dunk tomatoes in boiling water for 30 sec to make the skin come right off. I’ve also have held them under hot tap water until the skin came off easily. Chopping them while they are still a little warm causes even more seeds to be left on the cutting board and not in your soup.)

Coconut Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
I've prepared this recipe two ways and both ways were excellent. The first time I didn't have any cream of coconut. *NOTE* Cream of Coconut IS NOT the same as coconut milk. Substituting coconut milk for coconut cream would be like substituting evaporated milk instead of sweetened condensed milk. That being said, since I didn't have coconut cream, I substituted with a (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk instead and added 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of coconut extract. It turned out excellent! The second time I made it as directed. Both times were delicious.

Fluffy Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
I am giving this 3 stars because it gave us the AMAZING idea of melting marshmallows in hot cocoa which results in a wonderful taste and texture you won't get in other cocoas. BUT, it was not nearly chocolaty or sweet enough for our family. Try this: combine 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/3 cup of hot water. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 min. Add 4 cups of milk, 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of marshmallows. Cook and stir over medium heat until marshmallows and chocolate is melted and incorporated well. DO NOT BOIL. Now that's a five star recipe!

Kids Favorite Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
This is seriously one of the better meatloaves I've every had. I added one cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, and it tastes just like moms. I used rice chex and was surprised at how many people never heard of using cereal in meatloaf before; it is common in west central PA. I baked it on a cookie sheet and put a small cooling rack on the cookie sheet and the meatloaf on top of that. This way, the grease drips off the meatloaf and onto the cookie sheet (and you can line the sheet with foil for easy clean-up!) I did not reserve any of the ketchup/br. sugar mixture, but mixed it all in and it was very moist and tender. I mixed mustard, ketchup, and worcestershire sauce and spread it on top before I baked it. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE! I'll make this again and again.

S'mores Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
I've made these a few times now. I've messed around with all crumbs on bottom, using milk chocolate chips, using more butter...basically trying some of the most popular suggestions. Our favorite? AS WRITTEN! also: SOMETHING I JUST DISCOVERED: I made these last weekend for a family gathering. I used pre-crushed graham crackers I bought from the store. BIG MISTAKE! I saw where a lot of reviewers were having problems with dryness/not-sweet-enough-ness. Every time I make these with graham crackers I crush myself and use the amount of butter and sugar called for, they are SUPERB. But this time the crust did not hold together and it was not sweet enough. Down right "yucky" compared to the normal turn out. I learned my lesson! No more pre-crushed graham crackers for me.

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
We love this ice cream. Since getting my ice cream maker last Christmas, I've discovered that we prefer ice cream made without eggs over the kind you make with eggs (more of a "custard"). The kind without eggs taste like Bryer's ice cream. This is, actually, better than Bryer's! I use chocolate covered almonds (like in Bryer's rocky road) in place of the pecans. An excellent chocolate ice cream by itself (with out nuts and marshmallows) and can be used as the base of any chocolate based ice cream. Try it, you'll love it!

Southern Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
OMGOODNESS! I think the cornmeal adds a little crunch to this normally soggy side. I love them this way. This is always how I make fried green tomatoes. I use some salt and pepper, too. Try this: dip the tomato in egg then flour then egg then cornmeal. If desired, add the salt and pepper to the flour. YUMMMMMY!

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
This soup is incredible! I was doubtful because of the few ingredients. My 4 year-old said, "YUM! What's in here?" I only used 8 oz of salsa. I added 8oz of chicken broth. I served it with grated cheese to sprinkle on top and Triscuit crackers. Thanks for the awesome recipe! UPDATE: I made this again (a few times) and used on 10oz package of frozen spinach added at the end. I add it frozen and wait for it to thaw in the soup. Delicious!

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.

Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
To quote my husband, "This is the best calzone I've ever had!" I used Italian seasoning instead of the basil and cheddar and mozzarella instead of just chedder. I was very pleased to find this recipe because it's so hard to find a true Italian Calzone in my area. THANKS SO MUCH FOR SHARING!

Cauliflower and Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
I'd say, use less milk! I ended up using about 3/4 cup. I also added red pepper and yellow pepper and I steamed all four veggies together (more nutritious than boiling). I used salt, pepper and LOTS of Italian seasoning to season the dish. I cut up two chicken breasts and mixed together all the veggies, the chicken and the cheese sauce altogether. Then, I layered sliced tomatoes on top and sprinkled it with cheese. A main dish for us. YUMMY!

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!

Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
Carmel and apples...simple and DELICIOUS! I made caramel apples from scratch (homemade caramel) last year, and let me tell you, I do not believe it is worth it. This is so much easier, and just as tasty, and so much less finicky (for the homemade caramel kind, you must have a candy thermometer and cook it just right) and so much less time consuming! We rolled some in crushed oreos (I was not sure about that one at first, but it is so so good) and some in chopped peanuts. Give it a try. You'll love it!

German-Style Pickled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
My mom makes these every once in a while. We, avid pink pickled egg fans, all loved them. Most liked them better than the usual kind. They were very full of spice, but not too sour. She made the pink ones again on Thanksgiving, but I'm hopeful for the yellow ones at Christmas.

Onion Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Very good meatloaf. The onion soup mix really "made" it. It was a great way to add flavor and salt with out a lot of ingredients. I used 3 eggs (holds it together better) and divided it into two loaves and baked them on a cooling rack (the kind you use to cool cookies on) that I placed on top of a foil covered cookie sheet. I always bake my meatloaf like this because it allows the fat to drain onto the foil covered cookie sheet (one with sides to keep the grease in, of course). I baked it in a 350 degree oven for about one hour. I am very thankful for this recipe...quick and delicious!

Mini Southwestern Corn Pup Muffins with Fiesta Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
I imagine these just wern't our taste, although I thought they would be. I didn't care for the dipping sauce at all, and I love dips. I think it was the mayo. Maybe use all sour cream? Honestly, if my kids loved them, I would have rated them highter (being a kid pleaser recipe and all) but they love regular corn muffins but only ate half of one of these and picked out the hot dog and left the rest of the muffin. Sorry I coudn't be more positive--we just did not like them.
