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!

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.

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.

Libby's® Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Made as is; however, I did not have pumpkin pie spice. Called sis and she said her bottle of pumpkin pie spice contained cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. So I used 3 t. cinnamon, 1 1/4 t. ginger, and 3/4 t. of nutmeg. Turned out wonderful!!!

Walter's Chicken and Mac

Reviewed: May 20, 2006
My husband and kids loved this. I cooked chicken breasts on the stove with some diced onion and a little olive oil. I diced the breasts as they cooked. I mixed everything else in an other bowl (including a small can of tomato sauce because so many reviewers said it was too dry) and then I dumped the stuff in the other bowl into the pot I cooked the chicken in and warmed it up pretty good. Then I only had to bake it for 1/2 an hour, which also made it a lot less dry. I ended up with a pretty creamy dinner! Also, I added garlic powder and onion salt. Yumm. Thanks for the recipe.

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!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
Amazing. I did not use nuts, but added one cup of raisins instead. They were a big hit with everyone, from Gran Jean Bean to my two year old!

Nana's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2006
AMAZING!! The best I've every had (hubby agreed). I was looking for a recipe that used regular sugar, not brown. I used Fuji apples because that's all I had, and it added to the sweetness. It was very tasty, not too sweet. I was leery about the tbs. of cinnamon on top, but it really added to it. DON'T SKIMP ON THE CINNAMON!! I also baked it in a 8in square pan but didn't use any less ingredients. Thanks for sharing!!

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
Very Good!! We followed the recipe exactly (using most pulp orange juice)and it was not too sweet for us--sweet enough yet still quite tangy. We froze it in quart ziploc bags (five--none quite full). We put some of the frozen portion in the punch bowl, broke it up a little bit and just added soda as it melted. Altogether we used all the frozen part and 3 two liters of soda. It worked out quite well. It was very very yummy! Everyone (from Great Grandma to two year old) loved it!! UPDATE: Try using orange jello and ginger ale for a twist! We did this once and were not disappointed. I'll make it with strawberry sometimes and with orange sometimes; good to switch it up.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
We really liked this. I used it for a chicken enchilada soup recipe that I found on this site. I just used chili powder that I found for a buck on the dollar shelf at the market beacuse I didn't have anyting else. I'm eager to try it with better chili powder. Plus, I did burn the flour (be very carful!) and so it had a smokie taste, but still very good. Even with all my screw ups, it came out nice. Thanks for the recipe.

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!

Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
I used only 3 poblano peppers and found the heat to be quite perfect--spicy but not too intense. Also, I had no chicken boulion at all, so I just ommited it and thought the broth had enough flavor from the chicken and garlic and onions. This dish got raved reviews from all who tried it. THANKS FOR SHARING!

Oatmeal Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
This recipe makes a very tasty cookie and is easy to double (which you will need to do if you want 72 cookies, I doubled it and almost got 6 dozen). I made a double batch and left the walnuts out of half and in that half, I added an extra 3/4 cup of raisins. Very moist and delicious!!

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
We all loved this recipe. It's a very easy way to make a good, filling home cooked meal. I served it with canned corn and rolls.

Beef 'n' Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
Everyone I serve this to loves it. I omit the carrots and celery and green onions. I use one large onion cut up, and one green pepper. Last time I only used one can of chicken broth and it worked just fine (a little less "soupy", but I don't find it overly soupy to begin with). The spices are perfect, I think. Last night I made French Bread Rolls to Die For also on this site to go with it. What an excellent combo!

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.

Fluffy Two Step Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
Add the sugar S-L-O-W-l-Y so that it doesn't lump up the mixture. And, make sure your cream cheese is very soft. I dump a can of pie filling over my pies before I chill them. Delicious with blueberry and blackberry. Good with cherry, too. Fresh fruit on top is an option too, and I'm going to try it when it gets a little cheaper this season!

Chocolate Mint Milkshake

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
I did not expect much from this. I think it's excellent--better than I thought it would be. I've had a hard time making milk shakes at home because they are usually too runny. I followed the measurements exactly and it turned out great. This was ice cream shop taste. I used Bryer's all natural vanilla ice cream and Hershey's syrup and pure peppermint extract. I also made some minus the peppermint extract but plus coconut extract. I much preferred the mint. There is something very yummy and subtle about using vanilla ice cream and adding syrup to make it chocolate. I recommend at least trying it that way even if you try it sometime with chocolate ice cream, too. BEWARE: my 3 and 5 year old took a few sips and then asked for "regular ice cream in a bowl" --with chocolate syrup on top, of course!

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
I've been searching for a healthy pancake recipe that my husband likes. This is it. The entire family liked them. I did not have wheat germ so I subbed oatmeal and it was an excellent substitution. The texture was perfect. I added some sugar (about 2 T.) and vanilla (about 2 t.). The WW pastry flour keeps the pancakes light and fluffy with a closer texture to regular pancakes than the usually healthy pancakes. Thanks for the recipe!!
