Chili con Carne II

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
Yum! I am done looking for chili recipes! My entire family loved it. The level of spiciness was kid friendly, but still enough to be very tasty. The cloves really added a nice grown up flavor. I used chili beans instead of kidney beans. I also poured in about 1/3 c. strong black coffee - an impulse decision - gave it a bit of a smoky, dark flavor. I can see where this would be an excellent recipe to experiment with. I will definitely will be sharing this recipe! Thanks!

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
Thank you for a recipe that does not include prepared salsa! Like others, I added cumin. If you want to make it more like a main dish, Add some browned hamburger or, better yet, spicy sausage. I think I will try adding chicken next time. Thanks for a great recipe. This will be a staple in my home -- something I can make as is, or a good base for customizing!

Old Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Try this with turkey! I had a gallon bag filled with leftover turkey & stock I froze several months ago. I also added carrots for the color and flavor. Definitely use UNSALTED butter. You will appreciate the parsley more - for a nice noodley taste. When I called my kids to the table, my skinny 9 yr old said "Yuck, I hate dumplings!" He ended up eating two servings and said it was delicious.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Excellent recipe for making cutouts. Use the Royal Icing recipe and you will have professional looking cookies. I made gingerbread man shapes and plain circles, then frosted to look like basketball players and basketballs. Nice sturdy cookies. Keep what you're not rolling in the fridge and the dough will be easy to work with. This is now my only sugar cookie recipe!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
LOVE this icing! Absolutely use colored paste, especially for intense colors. Liquid food coloring will make the icing runny & you will need to add more sugar. I divided the icing while it was a bit firm and added a tiny bit more milk to one batch, which I used to paint the main color. A firm craft paint brush worked great. It dried perfectly smooth and shiny. I used the slightly firmer batch for piping the fine lines, etc. Thin the icing with additional milk - not corn syrup, or your icing will not dry properly. Substitute vanilla for a milder flavor. It is available in clear, if you need your icing to remain pure white. There are dozens more iced cookies in my future. Thanks for a tasty, easy to use recipe!

Easy Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Easy & delicious! No one will ever know there are only 3 ingredients - until you share this awesome recipe. I always make copies to share whenever I make this for a party, because I am always asked for the recipe. My husband hides the left over portion in the fridge so he doesn't have to share! I have rolled the ball in both chopped walnuts and chopped pecans. Both turned out very nice.

Ham with Maple Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
Delicious and so aromatic! Your kitchen will smell fantastic. Definitely do not skimp on the apple juice and sub. with water. I did that once - a bit more bland ham & gravy. The apple juice is an important part of the lovely blend of smoky, tangy, mapley flavors. I have not cooked the apples - not a cooked apple fan, but the ham and gravy are a HUGE HIT in my house. I am not allowed to cook ham any other way. We love ham gravy so much that I add more apple juice and some water to the pan while baking so I have more liquid for gravy.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
YUMMY! I just made these this morning. I didn't have semi-sweet chips, so I used milk chocolate chips. Nice. I will use semi-sweet next time so the tangy flavor of the chocolate chips is more noticeable. I will be making these all winter & experimenting with different flavors of chips.

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Very kid friendly recipe. I sprinkled some shredded cheddar cheese on top 10 mins before baking time was complete. I did not have mixed veggies so I used green beans. Will try with corn next time. This is a nice basic recipe that I will be making often!

Perfect Apple Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
This is the best apple pie recipe I have made. It's perfectly classic apple pie. My family loved it. No adjustments needed. It's going into my Family Favorites folder right now!

Passion Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
Wow! Yummy! I only had dark brown sugar. I would have preferred light. definitely gives a darker flavor but still very tasty. I will be baking again very soon and will experiment with other flavors of chips as other bakers have suggested. Thanks for the excellent recipe!

Crunchy Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
AMAZING! I doubled the recipe & was worried the cooking time would not be enough in my 1000W micro. I added 10 secs to 1st heating and 30 secs last one. Not sure if it made a difference, but it turned out perfectly. This will be my ONLY caramel corn recipe!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
My new favorite banana bread recipe. Sour cream & butter make this so delish. Do not substitute! I mashed my bananas, personal preference. You MUST try this recipe. Your family will thank you!

Salsa II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Everyone loved it! I was worried about the heat so I split the salsa in two batches and omitted the jalapenos in one batch just to be safe. I also skipped the cumin altogether. I liked the batch with jalapenos better. They add a very nice flavor. You can control the heat by omitting the seeds or only adding the seeds from a few peppers. The diced tomatoes definitely give the salsa a nice texture and fresh look. I will be making this again very soon and I plan on growing tomatoes this year so I can make salsa all summer! This recipe is a keeper!

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
AMAZING! Moist with very nice chocolaty flavor! For you baker types who like your cakes light, perfectly spongy, and dry to the touch, this is not your cake. It's SO GOOD, it doesn't need frosting. I used my large, oval crock pot with the removable ceramic insert. Perfect size and cooked evenly. I made sure the water was boiling when I added it. This kick starts the cooking process. I was concerned about how it would cook through. My 12 yr old boys were home alone babysitting the cake, so after 3 hrs, I had them turn the pot to "warm" for 30 mins instead of turning off pot and letting sit for 30. Then they pulled the ceramic insert out to cool. PERFECTION! It was ready to eat immediately after 3:30. Made this last nite. I'm making another today so I can try with vanilla ice cream.

Eileen's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
Delish! I just made and per the author's suggestion, I substituted onion dip for part of the sour cream (1/3 c dip, 2/3 sour cream). I used full fat dip and sour cream. I think low fat and fat free dips taste bad when used for cooking. Maybe that's my personal taste preference. My cooking results have been more unpredictable with the fat free stuff. I am definitely adding this to my "go to" recipe list!

Deena's Sweet Potato Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
I also made this with no changes. So delicious! I did not bake any sweet potato pies this Thanksgiving and did not miss them. Do not leave off the pecans. They definitely add to the texture and flavor.

Eggnog Quick Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
I make this recipe every year and give mini loaves as gifts. I did not change any ingredients and it always turns out perfectly. Technique is very important. Cream the butter and sugar first. Works best if the butter is very soft - room temp. Instructions say "stir just enough to moisten." Do not over stir. That will affect the texture. Definitely do not over bake. I only use unsalted butter. Just a taste preference. Butter has a definite flavor when baking, so if you substitute with other fats, the rum extract may seem too strong.

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2014
I followed the recipe exactly. Used ribeye steaks. Excellent flavor. I will definitely use this again. I used Alaskan Amber Alt Style Ale. Pungent flavor of the beer cut the sweetness nicely. I would not expect the same result with a light beer.

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2014
Way too much baking powder taste. This recipe scored 0/4 in my family. The batter was so thick I had to thin it out with more milk. I even added vanilla and a bit more sugar, but the baking powder flavor was too overpowering.
