Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2015
This was the simplest recipe! My modifications: I don't think you need to cook the sausage with the olive oil as it already contains a lot of fat. Once I browned it, I drained and then added a few tbsp of olive oil to sauce. Didn't add the crushed red pepper so kids could eat it and just offered on the side when serving. Also didn't have vodka so omitted but would be interested in adding next time.

Italian Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
great cookie - not too sweet, very moist and dense! baked at 325 for 8 mins. until the edges JUST started turning brown. the tops will still be very white and you'll think they aren't done yet but break one open and it probably will be!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
This was perfect and so easy to make! Use an 8x8 or 9x9 glass baking dish. Also, trader joes has a great Parmesan & Romano grated cheese blend which is what I used. Also didn't have fresh garlic so just used garlic powder. Also omitted the mozzarella as I didn't have it on hand and honestly you don't even need it. I served with sliced baguette drizzled with olive oil and baked at 350 for 5 mins. Sooooo good!!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
This is a solid recipe. Didn't have walnuts so I eliminated. Also increased the salt to 1 tsp and reduced the flour to about 2.75 cups. My oven tends to run too hot so I reduced the temp to 325 and baked 10 mins and they came out perfectly soft & chewy. Also used a melon baller to scoop and recipe yielded almost 6 dozen. Update: Didn't want to make a full batch so halved the recipe and put in pecans instead of walnuts and it was just as good as the first time. Baked at 340 for 10 mins.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
super quick and easy to make with ingredients you already have on hand. and taste is so much better than regular french toast! recipe calls for 12 slices of bread but i used regular sandwich bread and probably got closer to 9-10. make sure you keep stirring the batter in between as all the flour tends to fall to the bottom.

Mom's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
Ok, so I made the following changes to accommodate for using one 1lb box of elbow macaroni, (which is 3 c.) but I didn't double all the ingredients. I used 1 stick, or 8 tbsp of butter for the sauce and didn't add any addt'l at the end. I only used 2 c. milk. Melt the butter for the roux very slowly, on low heat and after u add the milk and it comes to a boil, u must keep stirring it. I also didn't have regular velveeta on hand, only the queso blanco, of which I used 8 oz or half the small brick. And I didn't have 2 c. shredded sharp, only a package of the really thin sliced. Just put in the whole package. Also followed another reviewers suggestion and skipped the bread crumbs, bake at 350 for 25 mins.

Easy Homestyle Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
I used 1 12oz bag of green valley frozen steamers (cooked per directions on bag) and thought this was good but agree with other reviewers that it was a bit too salty. Next time I may either add more green beans or cut back to 1/2 or 1/3 of the bouillon cube. Next time may also add a dash of garlic powder along with black pepper.
