Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
I LOVE these cookies! They always turn out perfect and they stay soft, unlike other cookies I "try" to make. My boyfriend tries to snatch them as soon as they're done baking. Thanks for the great recipe!

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
Wonderful potatoes! This was exactly what I was looking for and the recipe has the quantities down perfectly. I cheated a bit and left the skins on my potatoes and just mashed them right up in to the mixture. It adds texture and fibre, hehe!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
Really good just as written! I am happy to get rid of my old chili recipe for this one. We like our food spicy, so I didn't find the chili powder overpowering. I made it in my slow cooker too, but made sure to decrease the liquid ingredients. Great stuff!

Potato Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
This was great! So great that I took a picture of it! :P It was super easy to make with leftover mashed potatoes. The first time I made it, I made fresh mashed potatoes and the cakes were difficult to form because the potatoes were still warm. So I really recommend using leftovers. I only ended up using leftover potatoes, cheese, and oil to make my cakes. And it still tastes great! Thanks for the recipe.

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
These were amazing! I used fat reduced margarine in place of the butter and mixed the minced clove of garlic right into the batter. I did not brush them with butter when they came out. My boyfriend did like putting extra margarine on his as he said they were a bit dry without. I loved them regardless! Be sure to use sharp or old cheddar cheese!

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
I saw this on the Allrecipes homepage and just had to try it! Good thing, because this was a really tasty meal! I served it over rice and used hot Italian sausage because it was all I had. I also subbed oil for the butter. I boiled the sausages while I chopped the onions to get rid of some of the grease and then cut the sausages up after having boiled them to fry in the pan. I was so impressed with how this turned out. Thanks for the recipe!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
Wonderful! I think I used a little more ground beef than the recipe called for because I had to use just a bit over a cup to get my mixture moist enough. The combinations of spices and condiments really are tasty! This is much better than canned sauce because you can play with the flavours yourself. I am going to try using some of the mixture between bread in my sandwich maker for lunch tomorrow!

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
Very good soup! I added carrots, diced potatoes, cabbage, frozen peas and corn, and parsley. I cut the recipe in half and it still turned out great! The broth is flavourful and this soup with accept any veggies you throw at it!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
These cookies stayed soft and moist. I used only the egg yolks, as advised by the cookie advice column on this site to make sure the cookies didn't dry out. I used vanilla pudding mix, but I'm not sure what it was supposed to do for the cookies, because I couldn't taste it in the cookie afterwards. Regardless, these cookies live up to its name!

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2005
Mmmmm! I was looking for a way to jazz up boring carrots and I certainly found it. I used regular carrots cut up into coins and it was fine. (Of course, baby carrots look much nicer and require no prep) :) I'll certainly be using this again!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2005
Wow!!! This was really great. I used a pork roast, and was hesitant to add the cream soup, because it was the cheapest brand. Regardless, this came out beautifully, and the huge bone in the middle of the roast just slipped right out. I added some garlic and onions to the gravy as it cooked for some extra flavour. Thanks for this recipe, I shall be using a great majority of my roasts for this from now on!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
These were simply amazing! I really enjoy pumpkin pie, so I was excited to make these cookies. I'm really happy how they turned out. All three batches that I have made have all came out wonderful. I cut back on some butter and sugar. I also added some extra spice (especially cinnamon) as advised through other reviews. I also made the glaze, which was plentiful and a sweet touch to the cookies. Thank you for sharing!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
I won't make the same mistake with this recipe again - I'll make sure to double it! Wow, this was really tasty. I was afriad I would mess up the cream mixture, but it was so simple! I also added corn and carrots and added a lot of veggies than requested. I've made this soup twice now, once with my own stock (which was better) rather than the buillion. Thanks very much!

Bou's Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
This was a great hit at my table! I kept dunking my finger in the pot while it simmered just to taste the sauce. My boyfriend said "make sure you give this recipe a good rating on that website!" I used the left over sauce when making homemade burgers. I just mixed it in with groud beef and onions. It was great! Thank you so much.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
These cookies were wonderful. They were heavenly soft right out the oven, and mine only needed 8 minutes. The first batch, I left in for 10 and they came out a bit crunchy. I cut back on 1/4 cup of sugar and added some coconut instead, but I think 1/2 of coconut would be better. Also, when I was mixing the batter, my wooden spoon snapped! Be prepared for a workout if you don't have an electric mixer.

Macaroons III

Reviewed: May 4, 2006
I was going to add this recipe myself, seeing as I made it last night, but I found it already on here instead! I used 8 cups of unsweetened coconut, 1 small can of sweetened condensed milk, and two teaspoons of vanilla extract. I had to use my electric mixer to mix everything really well. Simply drop these onto a well greased pan and bake for 8 minutes. They are fragile when they first come out, so be careful when you transfer them on a plate to cool. I love these simple treats!

Country Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Just wonderful! I made this for brunch today and it was excellent. I didn't use as much bacon because I had only about 5 slices and I added about 1/4 cup chopped red pepper. I love how easy this was to make such an impressive looking meal. I ended up cutting it into six and ate two slices. My boyfriend ate three! I will add this to my recipe box and make sure to make it again.
