Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Soft, cake-like cookies! Wonderfully chewy! I even used Egg Beaters instead of eggs and it still came out wonderful. Be sure to use parchment paper or spray your cookie sheet. I had to leave mine in the 350 degree oven for a good 11 minutes...Don't under-bake these.

Queenie's Killer Tomato Bagel Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
Who knew something so simple, would be so delicious!! Instead of a roma tomato, I used my garden-grown beefsteak tomato...yum-my! The salt, pepper and basil make it just perfect. Also, used an "everything" bagel from Sam's Club. Made the perfect light dinner!!

Marinated Turkey Breast

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
Awesome recipe! I slow-cooked mine in the crock pot and the turkey breast just fell apart. It was more like pulled-turkey! I threw in some little red potatoes and had an instant meal.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
I'm a big slow-cooker fan and this was the easiest way to cook a turkey! I didn't think adding only the onion soup mix would do it for me, but it was delicious. I did make the following changes: poured just a bit of water in the slow cooker and made a gravy after it was done; also, I used a 6 lb. boneless turkey breast. It was extremely juicy and tasty! This will be on my menu list from now on!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
Not so hot...I followed recipe exactly EXCEPT, I did not make them as big as suggested. So, that might be why they weren't chewy. Still a good tasting cookie - no complaints from my kids and husband. I'll still look for a chewy cookie recipe.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
Two words: YUM-MY! These were perfectly chewy! I made the following changes, based in part on the reviews: Used only 4 cups of coconut, added 1 1/2 cups rice krispies. Mixed this with the flour and salt. In separate bowl, mixed sweetened condensed milk with vanilla. Then, combined all together and used fingers to mix, as recipe suggested (seems like more fun that way)! Dipped fingers in cold water and mixture did not stick when I formed them into golf-ball sized bites. Placed on foil lined cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Baked at 325 for approximately 16-17 minutes. Result: chewy macaroons with slight cripiness baked in. This recipe resulted in 3 dozen cookies! One of the easiest cookie recipes to make and tastes like I spent a long time on them!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
If you're searching for a perfect coconut cream pie recipe, end your search with this one! But, make the following changes: I used 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (makes all the difference) and 1 1/2 cups heavy cream (I didn't have half-n-half). Also, eliminated the flour and used 1/3 cup corn starch. I turned up the heat on the stove between low and medium, and only took about 20 minutes or so to thicken. I did not toast the coconut that went inside the pie, but did toast the coconut on top. Also, made homemade whipped cream (carton whipping cream, 2 tbls. confectioners sugar, 1 teas. vanilla). Very nice texture. Firmness is just right.

Florida Key Lime Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
Being a native Floridian, this really is the best I've had in a very, very long time. The only change I made was that I added a topping made from mixing cream cheese, cool whip and a little sugar. I spread this on after I let the pie chill overnight, just before serving. It was awesome. Reminded me of a key lime pie I had in Cedar Key once. Very good recipe...thanks for it!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
This was good, tasted about the same as the recipe that I usually use. I was looking for something just a little bit different. Still was a nice dinner with a nice, thick gravy. I decided to serve this over rice to stretch it out and it was really good. I never have served over rice. Salad and french bread made this dinner a success.

Ground Beef Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
These little changes make this a very delicious, easy dinner: Used 3 cloves garlic, a few dashes worstershire, and mixed dry onion soup mix with 1 cup boiling water. Added 2 teas. corn starch to make thicker gravy sauce. Added this to meat. Combined corn to meat mixture and let simmer. Used instant idaho potatoes and used evaporated milk to make these instead of plain milk. Added the suggested beaten egg. Took adive of others and included about 1/2 cup or so of sour cream and garlic powder to mashed potatoes. Topped with shredded cheddar and broiled for last 2 minutes. EVERYONE ate their dinner, and I have 3 kids with very different tastebuds!

Dog Treats I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
Super easy to make! My two dogs loved these...the puppy barked for more! I substituted 1/2 cup chicken broth instead of milk. Added only 1/2 of cheddar cheese and included 1/3 cup of crunchy peanut butter. Next time I will add a bit more of the cheddar to give it some more zing. But, all in all, great recipe that the dogs love! I'm making a ton of these to give as Christmas gifts to my kids' friend's dogs.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2006
Awesome recipe. Changed it a bit and used Red Wine Vinegar. Since I was grilling 4 steaks, I doubled recipe, but only used 3/4 cup of vinegar. Also, used fresh sliced/chopped garlic - I think made all the difference. Only marinated for about 8 hours and it was just right. Any longer and I think the vinegar would have been too much. Also, I used top sirloin (only steak I had) and it was very tasty. All 3 kids & husband loved it. I'll use this again for company.
