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!!!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
My husband really liked this. I made it with "restaurant fried rice" from allrecipes. I used boneless skinless chicken breast instead of the thighs, but that was the only thing I changed. Very good. I think personally I would give it 4 stars but my husband gave it 5 and that's what really matters. :) ok. so I also doubled the sauce which is completely unnecessary. I had a ton of sauce left over. And personally, I think they would be better broiled or grilled rather than baked.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
excellent! I altered it slightly but not much. I didn't have bread crumbs so I put Club Crackers (20) and 1/4 cup oats (need fiber!!) in the food processor with the spices and ground them until they were fine (I added just bit of crushed red pepper too). In the egg mixture I added a dash of Cumin (because I love cumin in eggs). I let the chicken breasts marinate in a little balsamic vinegar for a few hours prior to cooking and I fried in my deep fryer (its easier and doesn't set my smoke detectors off) for 7 minutes at 375 degrees. I'm finishing it right now but I had just a taste of the one that came out first and it was fantastic. I'll update with my husbands response later.

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
This is the BEST sausage I have ever had! My husband loved it, too! He told me to never buy packaged sausage again. I tried to keep it as close as I could to how it was written. Except I didn't have any sage so I subbed for half the amount of italian seasoning and doubled the marjoram. I like maple sausage so I put about a tablespoon of syrup in, too. Absolutely fantastic! I had been wondering what to do with the ground pork that was in my freezer from my uncle-in-law's farm and I'm really glad I used it to make this sausage! It's really annoying to waste really good meat in a really bad recipe! Thanks for posting this! AWESOME!!! update: I made this with ground turkey this morning and it is just as good. great recipe!!

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
I thought this tasted very good. A few tips, however: 1) I don't think the cornstarch is necessary. 2) I cut the recipe down to 2 servings because I only have myself and my husband to feed and I was using it as a waffle topping because I was out of syrup. I used 1 apple (red delicious sliced thicker and not sauted as long worked wonderfully) but the sauce was pretty much non-existant. it covered the apples but there wasn't anything left so I concocted the sauce without the apples to have more syrup. worked well. 3) I tried one reviewer's idea and added nutmeg and vanilla. The vanilla was a good addition but I didn't really care for the nutmeg. It didn't ruin the recipe, but it didn't add anything to it either and it smelled funny. I think the recipe is great tasting as is but if you decrease the number of apples, you still need to keep the same amount of sauce or you just have flavored apples, no sauce. remember, if you use a softer apple, just decrease the sautee time to a minute or two instead of 6 minutes. You just have to get them warm because they're already soft. PS. Anyone who thought this recipe was disgusting must have done something wrong. I don't think I would eat it by itself, though, use as a topping for something. But it is definately NOT disgusting. My husband gave it five stars, too.

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
this is literally the best home made potato salad I've ever eaten ever. Second best potato salad to this one I got at this little grocery store once. This is super super good. I minced a dill pickle because I didn't have relish but kept everything else the same. seriously awesome! I'm impressed.

Cornflake Waffles with Honey Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
very good. I didn't do the sauce this time because I was in a hurry (starving). I'll try it next time though. I was surprised at how fluffy these are. I did add a little vanilla extract (because I put vanilla in everything) but that's the only change I made. You have to finely crush the flakes, though. I put mine in the food processor. I think it would be funny to have larger chunks of corn flakes in them if you didn't crush them very fine.

French Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
mmmmmmmmmmmmm. I've made these 4 or 5 times and they are always great. I usually dissolve the sugar in warm water then add ice cubes to cool it down before I soak the potatoes and I fry them for 2 minutes, take them out and then fry them for another 6 or so minutes and they are perfect. Better than McDonalds. :)

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
Very good. Much better than the last hot chocolate recipe I tried from this site that tasted like warm milk with a chocolate chip floating in it. (it was bad). This was very chocolaty and sweet and was much more like store bought hot cocoa. I didn't measure precisely, just eyeballed it, but I'm sure I got darn close to the actual measurements and it was not too sweet at all. The only disappointment was that I cut the recipe in half because I was only serving myself and my husband and it didn't fill 2 mugs to the top, only about halfway on each. So if you are expecting to get 4 full mugs of hot cocoa from the 4 servings it lists, you better have small mugs. Next time I know to use the full recipe for two people.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Fantastic. I had never made waffles before but got a waffle maker for my wedding last week and really wanted to try it out. These were great. I added just a little more vanilla (because I like things vanilla-y) and separated the egg whites, beat them and folded them into the batter at the end as another reviewer suggested and these were the best waffles I have ever had. Will definately use this recipe over and over again. I have some batter left over and will see tomorrow how it keeps in the fridge.

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.

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.
