Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly except for I used club crackers instead of saltines because that's what I had and I followed another reviewer's suggestion of dredging in flour before the egg (which is way better than straight to the egg. I did one without dredging first and all the crust fell off that one right away, but not the others). I don't like when people give something a bad review if they changed the recipe, but I don't think my change really made any difference on this one. It must be just me but every time I try to cook chicken on the stove it ends up burning. I had the heat turned down to almost nothing and it still burned before it got anywhere near cooked on the inside. I ended up taking it off the stove and putting it in the oven to finish cooking because I was afraid I was going to burn my house down. I'm surprised my smoke detectors didn't go off. I'll try this again but next time I'm going to bake it instead of cooking on the stove. Also, don't use whole chicken breasts unless you pound them flat because they just end up burning before they get cooked in the middle. I'll update my review when I try it again baked in the oven. I don't think it will hold a candle to the Deviled Chicken recipe on this site though. That recipe is awesome. sorry chicken fried chicken.

Pork-n-Beans Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I am making this right now and it looks like it is going to be wonderful!! It's my friend's birthday and she is a health nut so I didn't want to make a regular cake for her. I am using a round pan instead of loafs to make it look more like a birthday cake and I'm going to ice it with a powdered sugar frosting. (not really healthy but come on...you can only be so healthy on your birthday!) We work together and I am bringing it in to share with everyone so I will update this to reflect their reactions! (I only gave it 4 stars so far because I haven't tasted it yet. This may change...we'll see) I subbed most of the oil for applesauce and used baked beans without pork (shes a vegetarian) I also used half white sugar and half brown sugar.

French Breakfast Puffs

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
these are fantastic. they are light and fluffy and sweet but not too sweet. really great breakfast snack. I agree with the other people that you don't need that much butter for the topping unless you are coating the whole muffin and not just the top. I used about a tablespoon of butter and it coated 6 tops. (I halved the recipe because my fiance won't eat muffins) I have a coworker who doesn't like chocolate so for her birthday I might turn this into a cake like one reviewer said she did. I think that it would work out wonderfully.

Chicken O'Neill

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
pretty bland if you ask me and I even added extra cajun seasoning. My fiance liked it though. He added habanero sauce to his.

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
very good. The only changes I made were that I used 2 cups minute rice so it wouldn't take so long and instead of Vegetable oil I used SmartBalance buttery spread made with olive oil. I did add a little minced garlic in with the onion too as someone suggested. Very easy and good side dish!! The chicken broth I used I made from two cups water with 2 chicken bouillon cubes.

White Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
it does stay pretty thin if you don't add extra corn starch or flour which then muddles the flavor. but still pretty good for an easy white sauce recipe. I like to add in cooked diced chicken and broccoli and use it on spaghetti.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I've never made macaroni and cheese not from a box. It was actually pretty good for mac and cheese. I would definately make this again.

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
It was good. people said they liked it but they weren't overly impressed. It was good but not as fantastic as I thought it was going to be. pretty average for a pie and didn't taste as peachy as I would have liked. good, but not fantastic.

Easy Deviled Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This was great. I had to make a few changes because I didn't have all the right ingredients but they were minimal. Like I used spicy brown mustard instead of regular mustard. I absolutely recommend doing that. I didn't have the stuff to make the coating either so I crushed up some club crackers really fine, added italian seasoning, garlic powder, just a little crushed red pepper flakes and a dash of paprika (I was thinking it would be good because there is always paprika on deviled eggs...I also didn't measure any of the seasonings I used, sorry.) absolutely fantastic. My fiance said it was the best chicken he has ever had.

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
really good. I didn't have the seasoned bread crumbs but I just took a rolling pin to a bag of chicken flavored stuffing until it was finely crushed. Worked great. I also just used parmesan cheese.

Hamburger Hash Browns

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
I didn't have any french fried onions. oh well. It was good though. The hashbrowns stayed mushy, I don't know if they were supposed to be crispy or not. It would have been better if they were crispy though. the only real change I made besides not having french fried onions was that I added a teaspoon of habanero sauce ( we like things spicy) and since i didn't have the french's onions i diced some fresh onion in with the ground beef and threw in a little garlic too. oh and I added a few dashes of worcestershire sauce as someone else recommended. I would make this again for sure.

Pie Crust VI

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
this was ok. I used it for a chicken pot pie. I don't think it would be as good on a dessert pie though...

Absolutely Best Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I don't know what went wrong because I've made brownies a million times before and they have always turned out great but I cooked these for only 20 minutes at 350 and they were super thin and rock hard. I used an 8x8 pan and when I was pouring the batter I didn't think it was enough and it looked pretty thin but I figured it would raise up or something. the only thing I did differently was I used Splenda instead of sugar. Maybe that was it. But I've baked with Splenda before and things have turned out. I must have done something wrong but for the life of me I can't figure out what. Sorry, I have to give this a bad rating because I've never had a brownie recipe go bad so I'm going to have to blame it on the recipe even if I did mess something up.

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
these are the best healthy pancakes I've ever tried. I did add a little vanilla and cinnamon. I think pancakes should always have vanilla. I accidentally decreased the oats by 2 Tbls. I had to sub milk/vinegar for buttermilk too. All the other pancakes I've tried with whole wheat flour have been icky. These are great. thanks

Chocolate-Oat Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
These are good! I baked my oat crust for 8 minutes. I can see how it might get to crunchy if you bake it too long. You want it to stay a little moist so it's chewy instead of crunchy. They are really chewy so not good if you have jaw problems. :) I added a layer of melted caramel under the layer of chocolate because I had all these caramels I didn't know what to do with. And I only had dark chocolate chips. mmmm. I also added a tablespoon of white sugar to the oatmeal crust because someone said it wasn't sweet enough. It was perfect. Really enjoyed these. Will make again.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
fantastic. I had to make a few changes but nothing major. I like a thicker chili so instead of tomato juice I used a large can of crushed tomatoes, a 15 ounce can of stewed tomatoes, a little can of tomato sauce and a 15 oz can of tomato paste. I also used 3 different kinds of beans. I used the same spices except I didn't have any cayenne so I used habanero sauce instead. We like things hot so I threw in some diced jalapenos too. To give a little more flavor to the meat itself I browned it with some of the onion and a clove of minced garlic. Great recipe. I don't think I changed things that really impact the recipe itself except the hotness. It's a good combination of spices. good flavor.

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
Ok. I"m giving this recipe 5 stars even though I changed it quite a bit. Here is what I did: Instead of tortillas I put a layer of tater tots on the bottom of the dish. For the soup mixture, I used the C.O.M and C.O.C with the milk and sour cream but I mixed in jalepeno slices, a few dashes of tabasco and sprinkled in a little fajita seasoning from a packet. Istead of chicken I used ground beef which I browned with sliced onions and green pepper and the fajita seasoning and a little more tabasco. I sprinkled some red pepper flakes and tabasco over the tater tots in the bottom then I spread the soup mixture over that. Then came the fajita ground beef with onions and green peppers. I sprinkled a few more tater tots over the top and covered in mozzarella cheese and some more red pepper flakes. baked for 30 minutes at 350 and my fiance says it was outstanding!! So thanks for the recipe. It just needed to be spicy and I have a lot of ground beef in my freezer. lol.

Vanilla Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
I really wanted some pumpkin pie and I was going to use the recipe off the back of the pumpkin can (I used pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling BTW) I decided to just browse through all recipes just to see if there was another simple recipe that I liked better. I found this one and it seemed really simple and I liked the idea of adding vanilla which wasn't in the recipe on the can. I admit that I did add the ginger and cloves though. I just didn't want to risk missing the spices. Every thing else I kept exactly the same. It tastes fantastic. What I don't get is that I baked it according to the directions; 20 mins at 450 and 40 mins at 350 and the edges didn't burn and I ended up having to bake for an additional 20 mins at 350 to get it done in the middle. I don't know why that was. maybe just a fluke. That never happens so I'm pretty sure it isn't my oven! Fantastic though!!! thanks for the recipe. The in-laws are coming for a visit in a few weeks and I think I'll make another one for them!!!
