Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Fantastic! I used a trick I saw on cooks illustrated tv to bump up the banana flavor. Microwave the bananas (whether green or brown) for 5 minutes. Strain the bananas and reserve the juice. Simmer the juice until it's reduced by half, it will be a syrupy consistency. Cool and add it back to the batter. It really bumps up the banana flavor without adding all that extra liquid, especially if you're using black bananas! I also reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup, and as others suggested, subbed brown sugar (3/4 c brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar). You can't tell at all. Next time I will reduce the sugar by 1/2 cup and see what it does. I made these in mini cupcakes and regular. Word of advice, when taking them out of the pan, whether you're using papers or not, they are really soft when warm. I dented a few, and one fell onto the others when tipping them out of the pan and it split in half as well as sticking to the top of the other and ripping the yummy browned crust off. :(. After they've cooled a bit, they are less fragile. Fantastic recipe, I'll be using it again and again!

Banana Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
very good bread. not too sweet, yet very flavorful. just a hint that it might be banana bread, but the very bright punches of cranberry give it a good flavor. good texture, not overly moist or oily like some quick breads. did not leave an oil spot on my napkin!

Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
this was a really good soup. i didn't have carrots so i doubled the celery, plus i like onion in soups, so i added half a chopped onion. i sauted that in a few tablespoons of olive oil to soften veggies then added the garlic for a bout a minute before adding the liquid and tomato sauce. i also added a little marjoram and rosemary ( i like those flavors) in addtion to the spices listed. had i not been feeding it to my kids, i would have added crushed red pepper flakes. i had uncooked, frozen meatballs in my freezer that i threw in and simmered and they were completely cooked in the 30 minutes. they were really good even though they hadn't been browned like you would get having pre-cooked them in the oven or stovetop. I didn't have any parmesan cheese on hand so i let my kids sprinkle a little mozzerella on top. my 7 year old commented "mom, it tastes like pizza"! so i guess it was a hit!! i'll definately be making this again. i doubled the recipe and cooked the noodles separately so i could freeze the leftover soup without soggy noodles. when we eat the leftovers, i'll just boil more noodles and add them and voila!! looks like i made it from scratch again that night!!

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
awesome recipe! i've used it on chicken as well and is awesome. i cut the chicken into tender size strips or have also used chicken tenders. i used olive oil instead of butter....may smoke a bit more because of the low burn temp of olive oil, but just as tasty. i cut the cayenne pepper down to just a few shakes instead of 1 tablespoon! it was still spicy because of the pepper.

Mom's Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
pretty good. It was a bit odd smelling when all the ingredients where mixed together. Kept getting whiffs of the vinegar in the bbq sauce while it was cooking and was getting nervous that it would blow your sox off when done. It was actually much milder tasting than it smelled! Family liked it. Served it over rice. It was a bit salty, but i'm not sure how you would fix that since bbq sauce and onion soup mix are the only salty ingredients! overall, a good, quick easy recipe that i'll make again when i don't have much time for prep.

Party Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
very salty, i'm wondering if you were supposed to soak the chipped beef first? with teh salt in the soup and bacon, the beef sent me over the edge. otherwise it was okay. very similar to my grandma's recipe except my grandma's is easier and has fewer ingredients. 2 cans cream of chicken or mushroom soup, 1 16oz container of sour cream chicken and bacon. wrap the chicken with the bacon, mix soup and sour cream and pour over the top. bake at 250 for 3 hours. the chicken falls apart.

Very Best Blueberry Cobbler!

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
this cobbler was pretty good. it definately needs some changes though. as others have said, it needs more fruit. double the ammount of fruit it calls for. if you don't, you'll end up with cake on top of a itty bitty tiny bit of fruit and juice that will be soaked up by the topping. the topping gets very puffy and heavy. it's not light and fluffy, or even butter soaked crispy like other cobblers. i don't mind that though. you just need more fruit to even it out. Also, as one other reviewer said, don't add the vanilla. it adds a weird and definate distinct flavor. the fruit can stand alone. i used splenda and it tasted fine. if you are a sugar fiend, ( like i used to be) you'll be able to tell if you used splenda. don't let anyone fool you into thinking that you can't tell. even splenda, as good as it tastes, makes things taste different. with modifications, i'd make it again.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2005
these are the greatest hamburgers ever!! the flavor is great. i've substituted bbq sauce or steak sauce for the ketchup for an extra kick and it's wonderful!! i also ran out of gas on my grill the night i was to prepare these, so i broiled them (flipping them over once to crisp the bacon) and they turned out just fantastic!!

Teriyaki Marinade

Reviewed: May 2, 2005
very yummy. i made a few changes...i substituted 2 cloves of fresh garlic chopped instead of garlic powder and i used brown sugar instead of white. i added a few teaspoons of cornstarch and cooked until thick and bubbly (just a few minutes) to make it more of a sauce consistency. when cooled i marinated my chicken and it turned out wonderful. you need to marinate for a few hours at least to get the flavor into the chicken, but it was good to used some of the reserved marinade (not used on the chicken) for your rice or a dipping sauce for egg rolls!! i will definately make again!!

Cornbread I

Reviewed: May 2, 2005
not very good. too salty. i'd omit the salt in this recipe next time. i'm sure the baking soda adds a salty flavor as does the buttermilk. i only cooked if for half the time and the bottom was almost burnt. good thing i checked it halfway through! i've definately had better cornbread!

Coconut Cream Pie IV

Reviewed: May 2, 2005
very good. pretty close to the same recipe you would find in the betty crocker or better homes and gardens cookbook. try not to get impatient and turn the heat too high...it's really easy to burn especially if you don't constantly stir until thick. overall i'd make it again.
