Coconut Macaroon Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
These were AWESOME! I notice everyone else pointing out that we are supposed to use unsweetened coconut, but I used sweetened because it is what I had, and it was devine. I wouldn't change anything. The batter was very thick, so it was hard to spread, and I found that I had to spread it with 2 fingers with a little butter on them- the spatula just was clinging to the batter. I made them in a 9x9 bar pan and thought the thickness of the layers was absolutely perfect. These are just great and are definitely staying in my recipe box. We burned our mouths on them because we couldn't wait till they cooled to taste them, and they were worth it. They are even better the next day.

Taco Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
This was very good! It didnt take long to brown the ground beef and get it in the oven. By the time I bathed the kids, dinner was hot and ready. Perfect for a week night! My husband ate half of it himself though, so once my son gets a little bigger I may not be able to feed all of 4 us with this dish without adding a side. But it's great! Update: I doubled the recipe this time and it was more than enough for my husband this time. We had left overs. I used the recipe Taco Seasoning I this time, and it was great with it!

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
This was excellent! I made it first exactly as directed and taking advice from previous reviewers regarding mixing the wet and dry ingredients separately and doubling the topping. That added more topping, but I don't think it was necessarily an improvement because the bread itself was delicious even without the topping. I made this to give to our neighbors for Christmas, but after it make my kitchen smell so good, I decided to mix a second loaf to keep. By the second loaf, I was busy and forgot to do a couple things. The first time, I mixed the dry and wet ingredients separately and they blended perfectly when I combined the wet and dry. But the second time, I was just on a roll dumping stuff in and mixed it all in one bowl without thinking. This made it very lumpy. I also forgot to grease the pan the second go 'round, and even though I used a silicone pan, it did stick and came out with a piece missing. So as long as you mix the dry and wet ingredients separately, and don't forget to grease your pan, you will do great! I am thinking maybe a few others said this was bland because they expected a sweet and gooey cinnamon roll texture? Not sure what their expectations were, but this has more of a coffee cake or banana bread texture, and it was perfectly sweet. I don't think it needed any more. I may try it with chopped apples and/or pecans in the future for a change. My kids love cinnamon bread that we buy at the grocery, but no need to buy that anymore. I will b

Best Apple Crisp Ever

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Delicious! I used 4 of the biggest apples I had ever seen, so I made 1.5 times the flour mixture. My flour mixture was still dry after baking, but the apples and brown sugar made such a wonderful syrup when baking, that I tossed it all together after so that the flour mixture would soak up all that good syrup. It was DEVINE.

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This was great! I used some of MOLNARJL's tips. The only thing I will do differently next time is add more water. My mixture was a little too reduced and started to taste scorched. I made it with garlic mashed potatoes and my husband said he wants it with rice next time. Was a big hit, and soooo tender.

Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Soooo good! I didn't have steak seasoning so I used some cajun seasoning. And I also left the skin on since the skin has the most fiber and vitamins. They were wonderful!

Country Green Beans

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Made this only because it was the featured recipe, and I am so glad I did! I only had 1 can of artichokes, but wanted to double the recipe, so I just doubled the spinach to make up for the missing artichoke hearts. It is SOOOOO GOOD! My sister and brother in law will be here in about 15 minutes and will enjoy it with us.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
Great recipe! Like other reviewers, I would never have thought to make my own until I needed some and didn't have any. How simple and quick this is. I didn't find it too spicy...in fact, I think I would prefer more than this recipe for 1 package of ground beef, depending on the use. For tacos, I will try 1.5 times this recipe next time. I used it in the Taco Quiche recipe and it was great.

Pasta Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
This was really good. I was excited to make it because my kids love dishes like this, and then realized that I was out of spaghetti sauce. So I used the "Quick Spaghetti Sauce" recipe for this since I always keep canned diced tomatoes on hand, with 1 pound of ground beef and a 12 oz bag of pasta. The sauce to pasta portioning was perfect. I recommend trying it with the quick spaghetti sauce recipe also. My daughter ate 3 plates of this and actually wanted more of this instead of a slice of the Valentine's day ice cream cake I brought home for dessert. Will definitely make this again and again!

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Excellent! This hit the spot for something sweet and delicious. I made an apple pie a couple of weeks ago, and my 5 year old daughter asked me to make another pie without the crust because she loved the apples. This was a little twist on that and was yummy! Might make twice the recipe next time because these went too fast. I did use brown sugar instead of white and was out of raisins. I will try it with raisins next time.

Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
Thise was wonderful. Made me look like I really know what I'm doing in the kitchen. I had both feta and blue cheese, so I decided to use half of each. The blue cheese was very strong and overpowered the taste of the chicken. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but my husband is not a big blue cheese fan. So next time I will make it with feta only since it's a little milder. But the cheese lover that I am adored it. I cooked mine at 375 since my oven usually requires higher temperatures than directions call for, and it came out perfectly. The sauce this made was absolutely delicious. I steamed some extra fine frozen green beans, and tossed them in the sauce. I served the chicken over the beans instead of rice or pasta. These were literally the best green beans we had ever tasted. Even my 2 year old son ate them (that was a first). I am sure this sauce would go great with any vegetable, and is good for low carb diets if you do that instead of serving it with a starch. SOOOOOOOO good. Thanks for the great recipe.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
Ok, this was the fastest and easiest cake I have ever made. It was better the next day after it cooled. It seemed fluffy when it was hot but when it cooled, it became this dense, moist, delicious mouthwatering cake. I didn't even put icing on it. I made it in a bundt cake pan (cooked for 55 mins) and sprinkled a little bit of powdered sugar on top just for decoration. It took me about 10 minutes from start to get it in the oven. I made it exactly as specified - no variations at all. It didn't need anything else. I was expecting it to just be ok. But it was EXCELLENT! Update 10/18/09 - Ok, since my last review I've made this cake at least a dozen times. I keep all of the ingredients incase I hear that someone is coming, and it's a huge hit with guests. I have had some failure getting a nice bundt cake with this recipe because it's so extremely moist that the top sometimes falls off in the pan, but it's never bothered anyone. Today I made it in a 9x9 pan and it's nice and thick. It was wonderful according to this recipe, but for variation I've added a tsp of cinnamon and a big pinch of red chili powder. Makes a unique and wonderful flavor. The longer it sits the more moist it gets. Soooooo good.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
I always look for really quick chicken recipes, and I don't know why I've never come across this one before. This is the easiest chicken I've ever made that actually has flavor. I made this on a night that I went out to dinner with a friend, so that my husband would have something to eat. He is from India and loves food covered with spices, so I thought this would be right up his alley. It made the house smell so good and I was sorry that I wasn't going to eat it! I did taste it though, and it was wonderful. My husband is so picky since I'm American and he really really misses his mom's Indian cooking....which I don't cook much because it's time consuming and we are very busy. So it was exciting to find something that he really likes. Thanks for the great and simple recipe! Oh also, I don't have an iron skillet so I just heated up my t-fal pan really hot and it worked fine. I had to bake it for 25 minutes though to get it done in the middle, and it was soooo juicy! I doubled the cayenne pepper too since my husband thinks food tastes better the hotter it is :).

Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
My sister had her wisdom teeth removed Friday so I found this recipe while looking for something soft to make her to eat in addition to the mashed potatoes I had made. This was a HIT! She loved it and asked me for the recipe so she could send her husband to the store to buy the ingredients to make it again. I tasted it also and it was great! So simple too! One tip - double or triple the recipe. 1 recipe makes 2 small servings. 2 recipes makes 2 large servings. When I make it for my family of 4, I'll probably triple the recipe to give everyone enough to have 1 serving.

Whole Wheat Banana Strawberry Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This recipe is wonderful!! My husband is hard to please and keeps raving about it. I made it late last night and we had it for breakfast this morning. I made it EXACTLY according to the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. My loaf pan must have been smaller than the one others used because some of the batter boiled over and I had to slip a metal pan under my glass loaf pan to catch it. I cooked it for the full time and it was brown on the top but it was a delicious crust that tasted buttery even though there was no butter in the recipe. I usually have to cook recipes about 20 minutes longer than the recipes called for though so maybe this one was just right for my oven. I've had the same issue with the last 3 ovens I've owned, so maybe it's our climate. Anyway, I would recommend not changing a thing but make sure your loaf pan isn't more than 2/3 full to avoid any spilling over. THIS WAS DELICIOUS!!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
yum yum yum! These are great! I wanted more so I doubled the recipe, but 1 recipe of crumb topping was enough for all. I filled the muffin cups to the top and it made 12 giant muffins (6 per recipe). I would imagine it will make 8 for a single recipe if you don't quite fill the cups all the way. I wouldn't change any ingredient. YUM!

Very Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
I usually make recipes as directed, but today I was specifically looking to find a chocolate cookie recipe to use some coconut I have had for a while. I didn't find what I was looking for but thought this one might work well to sub coconut for the chocolate chips, and boy was it a success!! If you love coconut, try substituting the 2 c chocolate chips for 3 c shredded coconut. Yummmmmmmmmmmmy. I'll try them as directed too when I can get some chocolate chips. Great recipe!!
