Rockin Carrot, Sweet Potato, and Ginger Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
This was delicious! I followed it almost to a tee except I used dried thyme, didn't have fresh, and I omitted the cinnamon because I thought it might overpower it. I think you could go without the bacon grease to make it healthier. I'm glad I doubled the recipe, made a big pot.

121 Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Very good, and the texture was beautiful but the vanilla flavor is a little too strong. Next time I might cut it down to 1/2 teaspoon.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
These were a little bland. I've made tastier waffles before but they required more work, so these were good for being so easy to prepare. I did only use 1/4 cup oil, and added 2 tablespoons melted butter to the batter.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
These were good. I quadrupled the sauce, as others suggested. I also cooked in the oven, as I started late and didn't have 9 hours for the crock pot. I cooked them 1.5 hours at 350. They tasted good, but I didn't think the cabbage was cooked enough. I ate these a lot growing up (never made them) and the cabbage usually is soft, and the meat is soaked through a little with the sauce. Maybe you need to cook them in the crock pot to achieve this. I ended up putting them back in the oven for another 45 minutes, and they did get better.

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
This is really good. It made SO MUCH. I had 3 very big cucumbers, one small onion, and I followed the recipe exactly. I did salt the sliced cucumbers before as some users suggested to cut down on the liquid. Very tasty, I will make this for the next BBQ when there will be a lot of people around to eat it.

Bacony Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Every time I've made this I try a new BBQ sauce. You can't go wrong with the addition of bacon. It adds so much flavor that the BBQ sauce is secondary. Any sauce you use, it's just so good.

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
so yummmy!! perfect chewy, flat cookie. I used butter and they flattened out quite a bit, but that's how I like my cookies. My bf likes chocolate, so on a few of them, I put some milk chocolate chips on top of the cookie when they came out of the oven. These were really good too. I'll definitely make these again!

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I made these with butter and omitted the water. They were kind of flat but I like my cookies that way. They were chewy and chocolatey - really good! I added 3/4 tsp. chipotle powder for a kick, and although the smokiness was not what I was looking for (next time I'll use cayenne) the kick was perfect. Overall, these cookies are fantastic!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
I didn't have an onion so I used onion powder. But it was really easy, hearty, and very flavorful.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
I didn't measure, I eyeballed the ingredients. I didn't have paprika or cayenne pepper, so I omitted the thyme and added Emeril's Essence which has paprika and thyme in it, and also used chipotle pepper. It was still really good!

Berry Shortbread Dreams

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
So easy and so good! I didn't have any jam so I made some with frozen mixed berries, and the cookies were still easy! The dough is beautiful and makes a very light shortbread. And they're perfect for my egg-allergic niece.

Artichoke Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
These are really good if you're an artichoke lover. Since some reviewers said it made a lot, I used 3 large potatoes, and 2 cans of artichokes. I left about 5 artichoke hearts out of the puree and roughly chopped them, I wanted some chunks of them in the mash. It turned out great!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Since other reviewers said to use brown sugar I did, but I think they would have been better with white. They look just like mall pretzels, and when I first tasted it, it tasted just like the mall pretzels, but the aftertaste was funny. Next time I'll use white sugar and I think they'll be fantastic.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
The crust definitely needs about two to three times more butter to make it crusty. I was so afraid to overmix my batter because of all the warnings against it, that I must not have mixed it enough and it didn't set in the middle. I cooked it for an hour at 350 and let it sit in the closed oven for 5 hours, then chilled it, and it still was gooey in the middle. AND it cracked! I'm going to try it again to see if I can make it better.***EDIT***I chilled it for a full 24 hours and it was like a different cake. Besides the crust needing more butter, this was PERFECT! I also took about 3/4 cup of the batter out and added melted chocolate to swirl through. It looked wonderful (except the cracks) and tasted amazing!

Simple Delicious Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I only used 2 garlic cloves, and added Italian seasoning as others suggested. I also used a potato masher to break the tomatoes down into more of a saucy consistency. I added a little chicken broth and reduced the sauce to make it thicker, and threw in a little sugar because I like a sweeter sauce. It was delicious!

Burnt Butter Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
Yum! This is a great way to make rice. I used brown rice and had to cook it longer, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The burnt butter really adds a lot of flavor. It is a little greasy but in a good way!

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
The base is great, but this recipe makes so much, and once I added the noodles, the leftovers were mush. I would recommend cooking the noodles separately and adding them to your bowl of soup. But other than the mushy noodles this soup is great!

Fast Chicken Soup Base

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
This was good and easy. I only used one onion since I'm not a big fan. And after I added the thyme I thought it was too strong so I skimmed most of it out. Otherwise, it made a great soup base.

Chris' Kraut

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
Wow! I love traditional sauerkraut, but this recipe kicks it up a notch. I'm not one of those who loves bacon in everything, but it makes this dish. I used brown sugar to deepen the color, and I bought brown sugar cured bacon. I simmered it for about 40 minutes on the stove and added water as needed, but some of the bacon on the bottom got a little caramelized which really sent it over the top. I added about a tbsp of apple cider vinegar at the end just to balance out the sweet. BF and I loved it! Even better the next day!

Challah I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
It may have been because I had just enough flour for 8 cups, and any remainder I had to add for stickyness, I used whole wheat (that's all I had). But it just tasted like really bad bread. It was nothing like challah, and the flavor was awful.
