Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Awesome waffles! Took no time at all to whip up, and did well with my substitutions. =] Subs: rice milk for cow's milk, & oat bran for wheat germ.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
The name says it all! I like my sugar cookies really soft and chewy, so I rolled mine pretty thick and cooked for less time. I wouldn't change a thing about the recipe otherwise. :)

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
It's hard to rate this fairly because we made this dairy-free using vegan butter and soy milk. Even then, it turned out very well. I just added some extra flour to help thicken it since we didn't use cow's milk. Next time I will probably double the ham (at my husband's request) and cook the potatoes MUCH longer. I still had some crispy guys in there. :)

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
Excellent recipe. The touch of cinnamon in the topping is barely detectable but adds a ton to the whole recipe. I subbed out 1/2 c. regular flour for whole wheat flour. Still fabulous. :)

Homemade Wonderful Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
Very tasty, easy, and cheap bread to make. I replaced the dry milk & 1 cup of water with 1 cup of real milk. I added an additional 1/2 cup of water per other's suggestions.

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Very easy recipe and super good. My husband said four stars because five is reserved for the ones that make you scream when you eat it. :)

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
This is a craveable marinade. The cooking instructions included with this are also excellent. Changes--I used a pale beer instead of dark. Because of this, I would increase the marinating time next time if I use pale ale. I could have used a little more flavor.

Zucchini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
If I could give this 4.5 stars I would. I omitted the basil since I didn't have any fresh and I couldn't see dried tasting good in this dish. I subbed soy milk for milk (as I do in almost all recipes). The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it congeals really quickly when it starts to cool. I think I would lower the cream cheese and up the milk next time to see if this helps the texture.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
Very good recipe. I followed the other suggestions and sauteed the mushrooms and spinach with a little wine before putting in the oven. I also cut up my chicken and boiled it, then baked the dish for 25 minutes at 400deg. The sauces is excellent. We can't do milk and I had success making this with soy milk. :)

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
No more packets for me either! Luckily I ran out one day and was forced to try to find a seasoning recipe--boy am I glad I did. This was good, but I am not done searching for the *best* mix.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I had my doubts while I was cooking this, but this soup turned out FABULOUS. I didn't have the issues others did with it being too thick, either. *Changes* I used 1 can tomato paste + 1 1/2 cans of water per cup of tomato sauce called for. I also subbed potato for zucchini since I sadly had none. I also used white wine instead of red, added an extra can of kidney beans and omitted the green beans. Like another user, I did not use pasta. I might add some in for my husband if he wants it so it's more hearty. Otherwise I followed the directions and ended up with a HUGE but wonderful batch of Minestrone. This puts Olive garden on a run for it's money!

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
I have tried many crust recipes and this is by far my most favorite! I had a very easy time rolling out the dough--no cracking, crumbling, etc. To get it in the pie pan I just rolled the dough up and then unrolled it into the pie pan. I had enough dough to very comfortably make 2 crusts with this recipe. Very flaky and tasty crust. It's a keeper for sure! Would make GREAT pie crust cookies!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
It's the best roast/crockpot recipe I've made, though I haven't made many. The onion soup gives it a great flavor.

Ignacio's Super Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
I have to give it 5 stars because just throwing in that piece of toast does more than you can imagine. Nice spin on an otherwise boring PB&J!

Glazed Salmon Fillet

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Not bad, but not amazing either. My husband thought it was an interesting twist on cooking salmon, but I don't think I'll be making this again in the near future.

Summer Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Excellent! I did make a few changes though to fit my tastes. I used red pepper instead of green (less acidic). I doubled the cheese amounts, used trader joe's 3-cheese spaghetti sauce, and I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese. Otherwise I made it to a tee, and it turned out WONDERFULLY. I will be making this again and again.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
Just like the rating/numbers show, this is an excellent meatloaf! I should add that I left out the ginger, and used soy milk instead of regular.

Pretty much amazing, especially with extremely fresh ingredients. Good cold or hot, and with a little sour cream on top.

Strawberry Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This was really interesting! Real unique bread- and a great way to use up over ripe strawberries. I thought the bread was more like a cake in it's desnisty :)
