Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
Delicious!!! The pancakes taste so good and cook up perfectly! The only thing I changed was that I used unsweetened applesauce for the oil and omitted the salt. We like the chocolate chips, but we'd rather have fruit, so I probably won't make these with chocolate chips every time, but will mix up what I put in it each time. We thought these were so good, I even took a picture, which I had never done before. Definitely a keeper! As for the syrup, I haven't tried that yet, but plan to, as it sounds delicious. :)

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
These were great!! Especially being whole wheat pancakes, these were exceptionally delicious! The only thing I changed was that I left out the salt altogether. Personally, I don't think these even needed syrup on them with all the butter in them, but are divine with sliced strawberries or any kind of pancake friendly fruit, along with a little whipped topping to top it off. Mmmm! This is definitely a keeper! Thanks so much for sharing this yummy recipe, Jen! :)

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I've been making this for a long time and don't know why I never rated it. This is by far the best pizza crust I've ever tried! The only tip I want to add is to get the perfect round pizza without tossing it. I learned this a few years ago on the Food Network. Shape your dough into a ball. With your index and middle fingers, push down in the middle of the dough. Then work your fingers in a circular rotation as the dough pushes out. Keep doing this until dough is completely laid out. If you're like me, you can't toss your crust and trying to get a nice round pizza with your hands, rolling pin, or whatever makes for an odd looking round pizza, then you will appreciate this tip. At least I did! :) Hope that helps!

Scrambled Eggs Done Right

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
Wow, I really had my doubts about the mayo, but no, it was delicious! As I'm writing this, my oldest is saying, "Mommy, lets have more eggs, please!" My youngest relunctantly eats eggs, but is goobling this up! I can't wait for my husband to try it, as we usually only make scrambled eggs when he's here, but I'm pregnant and craving some eggs!!! :) Shh, just don't tell him mayo is in it! For those who don't like the mayo taste, I didn't notice it, so I'm wondering if you're putting too much? *Actually, I just made the second batch and doubled the mayo to see if it'd make a difference. This batch is even better! So I'm confused why others are tasting the mayo, because we still can't taste it. To each their own. :) Thanks for the great recipe!

Spaghetti Pie III

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Finally, a baked spaghetti I like! Except, I LOVE this! The only changes I made were that I added more sauce and a container of cottage cheese with the cream cheese. (And I excluded the green onions, since I didn't have any.) Mmmmm, yummy! :)

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Our family LOVES this recipe! I definitely agree this is a dish I'd share with friends and family. I usually double the recipe, but instead of two cream of mushroom's, I use one and use a cream of chicken for the other. I also use a can of chicken stock instead of white wine. We serve with a side of steamed veggies. Simply divine!

Firehouse Machaca Taco Filling

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
This is simply divine! I make this in the crockpot. I leave out the water and lightly saute the onions/peppers before adding to the mix. Put in on high or low and you're good to go. I also add a red pepper and onion packet to the mix. I've also made this exactly 'as is' (except I still added the red pepper and onion mix) and it tastes the same as doing it in the crockpot. I've also used this in my tamales! You can make this in a variety of ways and it's still great! Two thumbs up! ** Edited** I am editing this from my original review from mid-August 2007, because I've made this several times since and have done it various ways. I've now decided that the best way and the only way I'll make it is this way. Put the meat in the crockpot and fill it with water. Slice up an onion and add the entire jar of green salsa. (That means I purchase two jars of green salsa, because the second jar I use later.) Cover and cook for 8 hours/low. A hour before I'm ready for dinner, I'll cut up and saute the peppers/onions. When that's finished or near the end, I'll drain the water out of the crockpot and shred the meat in the crockpot. Then I add the sauted peppers/onions, a jar of green salsa, I even add a bit of red salsa (it tastes good with a bit of it added), and the onion mix. That's how I'll make it from now on, because somehow it just tastes better this way. Delicious!

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Delicious! Need I say more? The baking soda really does make all the difference. I tried that trick in my usual sweet tea and it also made it a smooth sweet tea. Thanks, cookincode3! :)

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
Delicious! I used olive oil to cook the patties in and omitted the dry mustard. Simply and very good! Thanks for the great recipe!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
Perfect! We can finally say good-bye to expensive wings from other places and make them at home with the same great taste! I do one thing differently, which is baking them instead of frying them. Absolutely delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

Donna's Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Finally, a really good base recipe for homemade lasagna that my family enjoys! I've made several and almost gave up on enjoying a good homemade lasagna. Saw this in the Allrecipes cookbook and decided to give it a try. Must be good if it made it into the cookbook, right? I'm so glad I did. I only did a few things differently, but nothing much. I added a little extra sauce and added fresh, lightly steamed spinach. Made homemade garlic bread with it, too. I plan to use this recipe as a base recipe and try various things in the future. I also plan to make a big batch of it and freeze a few pre-made ones for quick dinners later. Freeze it before cooking in the oven. Then cook it like you would a frozen lasagna dish from the store. Thank you, Kathy, for submitting a great lasagna recipe our family enjoys! :)

Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
I agree with Diamar on the directions. But the recipe itself is great! I left out the red pepper flakes and used a 1/4 tsp. of chipotle seasoning I have on hand. I didn't have corn flour, but used corn meal and it turned out good. I don't use garlic salt, so I just added extra garlic powder and himalayan salt instead. All my kids ate it, but my youngest ate it, which is the most impressive. So for that alone, this recipe gets five stars!! Hubby and I did feel it needed a slight bit of something, but for the kids, I think it's perfect. Will definitely use again! Thank you for the great recipe!

Bacon-Wrapped Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I haven't made these potatoes, per se, but I have done something very similar. My suggestion to anyone who says there isn't any flavor would be to poke holes all around your potato, rub olive oil or melted butter on the outside skins, then wrap it up with bacon (you can do the onion in the middle, too). That way, the juices from the bacon soak into the potato. Wrap it up with foil, put in the oven or on the grill, and it should taste even more yummy! (We get our bacon from a local farm. If you can get bacon straight from the farm without all the additives, with thick slices [aka, lots of fat juices], you'll be in dog heaven with these potatoes wrapped in them! Mmmm!)

Grandmother's Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I've been making this punch since 2002 and can't believe I haven't rated it! We've made it year after year for various occasions. It's one of our favorites! I leave out the oranges and add only about 1 1/2 cups of sugar. I've never been able to find plain pineapple juice concentrate, so I usually use the pineapple-banana-orange concentrate or something with pineapple in it (whatever is there). Everyone has always loved it when they come over! Been using it for seven years now, so it's obviously a keeper in our household. :)

Potato Bacon Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Perfect comfort food! Mmmm! I did add a little cheese, substituted the water for chicken broth, and added cornstarch, like others did. Hubby and kids liked it and they aren't fond of chowder. We're a meat protein family, so we will add more meat protein (i.e. chicken) next time, but it's still delicious as is.

Taco Seasoning II

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Even though my husband and I like the Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning recipe from this site more, our kids loved this recipe more, so it's here to stay! We did add Himilayan Salt and used Chipotle Pepper (double) instead of cayenne, because we didn't have cayenne pepper on hand. I'll admit, it is slighly bland for adult tastes, but if you have kids, give this a try, they may like it more because of that. :)

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
Delicious! A little of this goes a long way in the belly! :) I made it exactly as is, except that many of the ingredients I used are not the usual (i.e. used organic palm shortening, Himilayan salt, raw milk/butter, ect...) I doubt that made a huge difference, but either way, it tasted great! It also took longer to cook, so I baked for about 45 minutes. This one is a keeper in the recipe box! Thank you, JBS BOX!
