Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2015
This cookie was like an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie and a peanut butter cookie to together and had a perfect little baby! We added an extra 1/4 cup of sugar, but otherwise followed the recipe. We liked the extra sweetness, but I do believe it would have still been 5 stars without it. The 10 minute cooking time was perfect. They come out very gooey, but cool to perfection...lightly crisp edges, but firm & chewy throughout. My husband hates gooey cookies, so I cooked the second pan for 12 or so minutes, until all of the edges were visibly brown, and that made them all over crunchy after they cooked completely. Not my preference, so I'll stick with 10 minutes. Loved these. All my favorite cookies rolled into one!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
These were great!! I made very few changes, and they were soft/chewy, and super tasty. I used all white whole wheat flour instead of all purpose, and I used coconut oil in place of the shortening. I also left out the salt, since my peanut butter and butter were both salted. I'm glad I did, too, because they were the perfect saltiness without it. The kids and I loved them!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
We had sworn off of boneless, skinless breasts until I found this recipe. We could never keep them from being tough and dry. But these were delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and they were wonderful. The whole family said to add this one to the regular grilling-season rotation.

Cheddar Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
Yuuuuummmmm!! I used whole, brined chicken breasts to make this, so mine had great flavor all the way through. Otherwise, I followed the recipe except for the rice crispies (didn't have any). And since my chicken pieces were thick, I cooked for an extra 10-15 minutes. I didn't even mind that the butter kept the bottom from crisping. I enjoyed the different textures. Good stuff!

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
Best pasta salad ever! The ranch flavor & the bacon were awesome. I used my own, homemade dry ranch mix, and didn't have any tomatoes. But I threw in some chopped orange bell pepper and some chopped kale that I very quickly sauteed in the leftover bacon grease. YUM!!

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Everyone in the house loved these, from my littlest one to my picky husband! The only thing I did differently was to soak the pieces of chicken in a salt-water ice bath, then drain & dry before continuing with the recipe...just to give the meat itself a little more flavor and to help keep it moist. I have been told this needs to be a regular menu item at our house!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
I normally don't review a recipe if I change it a lot, but I saw another reviewer looking for ways to add nutrition to these, so I thought I'd throw in my 2 cents. Because, these are obviously great as is, but I wanted folks to know they were very forgiving when you play around with them. These were wonderful, even after all my subs! I used 1 cup whole wheat flour & 1/2 cup white, plus 1-2 tbsp of wheat germ. I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the dry ingredients, cuz mmmmmm...I just love 'em. I replace the white sugar with mostly raw (turbinado) sugar & about a tbsp each of brown sugar & molasses. I added an extra egg to help make up for the wheat germ I added. I also used oil instead of butter & apple sauce to replace about 1/3 of the oil. And I mixed in about 1/2 cup of chopped pecans into the batter. They came out moist and very flavorful. YUM!!!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Awesome way to sneak some veggies to the kiddos!! As usual, I substituted like crazy. But anything that I did would have only made it taste worse, and I thought it was incredible even after I sub'd it to death. I used all whole wheat flour, I cut the oil to 1/4 cup & added 1 cup of applesauce. Then I added 3 Tbsp of molasses & used raw sugar (which I cut to 1 1/2 cups). Also, I didn't have squares of chocolate, so I sub'd 6 Tbsp of cocoa powder & added it to the dry ingredients. So even after all of those healthnut changes, it turned out delicious. And it's even better if you sprinkle some mini chocolate chips across the top of the loaf when you pull it out of the oven. Mmmmmm...

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
These are fantastic!! I even replaced all of the flour with whole wheat & no one even noticed. I also replaced the cloves with nutmeg, and used raw sugar for the white. I am sure the recipe is wonderful as is, but I was very pleased that the replacement of whole wheat flour produced such a wonderful cookie. My picky husband even though it was great. They stay nice & soft for days. I've made them 3 times already! YUM!!

Vanilla Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
I took the other reviewer's suggestions and cut the water to 1 Cup and bumped up the cornstarch to 2 Tablespoons. I thought this was very good. I used it over a dense, moist cinnamon cake (much like bread pudding) with vanilla ice cream and it was amazing!! I can't think what else I would use it on, but it was exactly what I needed at the time!

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
I thought this was absolutely fantastic!! I went pretty much by the recipe. I did use the Basic/Light setting on my breadmaker, versus the Wheat setting. But I realized later that this same exact recipe came with my breadmaker for the Wheat/Rapid setting. I'll try that next time. I am anxious to get some vital wheat gluten and try it with that next time to see if I could get it a little lighter, but I will make it again either way. I plan to start making this for daily-use. Forget paying $3 for basic store-bought loaves!

Cranberry Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
I thought these were wonderful. I followed the recipe and they came out great. I added them to an assortment of cookies & fudge on my holiday cookie tray. Everyone loved them. I could have eaten them all myself, and I'm not usually a big cranberry fan. Yum!!

Stovetop Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
RUN AWAY!! Why, oh why didn't I read the reviews before making this recipe? I was so caught up in finding a stovetop recipe using flour & eggs like my mom used to, that I failed to notice there was NO SUGAR in this recipe. And the flour to milk ratio was WAY off. The mixture turned to paste on the stove long before it reached boiling. I managed to add enough milk & sugar to make it somewhat palatable, but it still wasn't good at all. I think the person who submitted this might have made some typing errors.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2002
Can I just say "Oh Yea! That's some good stuff, man."? It honestly tastes just like the bread from the Macaroni Grill. My husband and I couldn't quit eating it. Very Good!

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2002
This was excellent! I took some of the other reviewers' suggestions by adding chopped chicken that I had cooked with garlic and Italian seasoning and some mozzarella to the filling. And I stuffed mine in manacotti shells. I also added some shredded carrot to the filling for added color and nutrition. It was very good. Also great to prepare ahead of time and keep in the fridge or freezer until ready to bake.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2001
I had been looking for a great sugar cookie recipe, and my search is over. These were the best I've had, and they had the perfect texture...soft but not too fragile. The cream cheese adds a definite taste to the cookie, which to me was wonderful.

Double-Decker Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2001
This fudge was wonderful! It was the first time I've ever made fudge, and it turned out perfectly. I took it to a holiday party, and everyone raved over it. Will definitely be making this every year!!
